02-08 – “The class has begun”
In the morning of the following day, Alysia had woken up at a later time than usual. Perhaps it was due to the commotion from yesterday that she was tired. Therefore, Alysia hurried to wake the sleeping Fian sleeping directly above.
“Fian, it’s morning! We might be late!”
Though half-asleep, they got up with dull movements and started to change. When trying to prepare and put on her clothes, Fian showed her nose from the shadow of the door remembered something.
“Come to think of it, we didn’t take a bath yet. I always have one every morning and night”
“There’s enough time for…one person. Fian, go!”
She said so and left Fian in a state of wonder. They are both women at the same age and raised a question.
“Since be are both girls and there is no time, shouldn’t we go together?”
“Ah…it’s useless! I won’t do it, my spirit won’t allow it!”
Alysia, who is not usually this distraught, firmly denied the offer to take a bath together. But as for Fian—
— The neck! The tilted neck!
“AAH! I had enough, thank you! If we have spare time, don’t talk!”
Alysia, having finally become broken, decided to go to class after taking a bath together.
The time spent waiting for the running water to become hot was saved because Alysia could boil the water in an instant with her fire magic and water magic.
Though in a strange way, the two of them realised the value of magic once more. The hot water coming from the faucet was also warmed by its own fire magic.
As soon as they opened the double doors of the first-grade S class, they were greeted by two students.
“Those two have come. With this, there is no one absent…twenty-one out of twenty-one people, good.”
To take exact attendance, a paper was given to the students to write their name. It seems Alysia and Fian had been the last ones here.
“You two, take a seat.”
The two of them sat together and turned their attention to the board at the front of the room. Characters could be written on the board by using a special magical cane, just like a general chalk-board.
“Then, now, mathematics class has begun.”
To the ears of Alysia, it was a word she didn’t like.
After the class began, Alysia immediately became bored. Why?
Because the level of maths here was simply finding the product of addition and subtraction. And for Alysia to do this felt like just a review.
When you become bored, vampires, like humans, decide to do other things to occupy their time.
‘…That bath a short a while ago…with Fian…’
“Is Alysia OK? Your face is slightly red.”
Mr Fizz who noticed the blush of Alysia, was worried and asked her.
“I’m completely fine!”
“Then…this problem. Try solving it.”
If you tried looking at the question pointed out by the teacher, it was a long question and Alysia wondered for conformation if that was the one.
Two carriages has stopped in the highway in alignment. Each advance advance 6000 Thermes in opposite directions. If they are moving at a speed of 12000 T/h, what is the speed at which they are getting further apart? (1)
“…!? That’s correct! It was supposed to be a difficult question…and you solved it in an instant.”
It was guessed from the teacher’s mutter that this problem was on the higher level of difficulty.
Now that morning class ended, it was time to return to the dormitory. Then someone came from a seat behind and walked to Alysia.
Wearing the school robe on top of a simple red-coloured dress, it was a girl with blonde hair, tied by a red string, that went to the middle of her back. Her height was the same as Alysia’s and she stopped right in front of her.
“Hi, you must be the black-winged Alysia, right? I’m Sheriana Rain and we will be in the same class for seven years, best regards!”
“Oh, to you too…and don’t say black wings.”
“Look at this!”
Alysia looked disgusted as she said that, but without giving her ears,
— Sheriana removed two cards under her robe.
On her school ID her race was written as vampire.
Moreover it was written with “Alysia Fan Club: Member #01”.
“I’m number one out of the members, because I love you!”
“What kind of meaning is this…”
Alysia was anxious by her “love” that she says she had, but it was decided that she would bring her to her dorm room to talk. There was no reason to refuse and it was a good thing to make more friends.
A little before it became 14 O’clock, Alysia heard a small knock on the door.
Alysia, who became aware of this, slowly opened the door, sensing someone outside of the room.
“It’s Sheriana, I brought with me, Claire.”
“Thank you, Alysia-san.”
It seemed a gentle girl of elegant demeanor was next to Sheriana. She was taller than Alysia who had to look up to her face, but her eyes were instead focused on the area on the side of her hair.
It was long and slender, an ear that completely resembled an elf. A vampire’s ear was sharp, but not as much as this.
Unconsciously, Alysia stretched out her hand, but stopped. It was impolite to do such a thing.
In response to Alysia’s sparkling eyes, Claire was perplexed.
“Well, want to enter? Please relax.”
While thinking in her heart that she would eventually let her touch them, she lets the two in. Here, the four girls arrived on the sofa of the living room, a little bit nervous, started a silly conversation.
