🐲 Chapter 37 - The Guardian

"Ah, I'm so tired!"

Lucius lays down in bed with those words. He then wraps himself in his sheets and gets ready to sleep.

This is Lucius' dorm room at the Academy of Magic.
 
Since many of the students at the Academy of Magic are from outside the kingdom, many dormitories have been prepared inside the academy.

The price of living in the dormitory is much cheaper than staying at an inn, even though balanced meals are provided for breakfast and dinner. In addition, students in classes A and B can use the residence free of charge.

As a result, 80% of the students live in the residence.

Class Z, which was created this year, is also exempt from paying dormitory fees, which Lucius benefits from. Clothes, a comfortable bed, and delicious food, Lucious was glad he got into this school just for those.

"Good night..."

Lucius fell into a deep sleep....


"Hmm..."

Waking up from his deep sleep, Lucius stretches.

Rubbing his eyes sleepily, he wakes up and notices something strange.

"Huh? Where's my bed? Rather, where am I...?"

The bed I was asleep in is gone. Besides, I'm not even in my bedroom. I'm on a very hard surface, and all around me is a white space that has no end....

Lucius was familiar with this scene.

"Huh?! It can't be...! Why am I back in the infinite prison?!"

The infinite prison.

An alternate space in which Lucius spent 300 years.

I'm pretty sure I got out of this place... Why am I back here?!

Lucius is confused, but then he remembers something.

"That's right! If this is the same infinite prison, then Tess Onee-san and Rio should be here too!"

With that in mind, Lucius looks around, but sees no one.

He tries to locate them to see if they were far away, but detects nothing,

"I can't believe it… I can't sense their presence! Am I really back in the infinite prison!?"

Lucius shouts in the hope that someone will hear him, but no one responds to his words.

"Calm down. This is the infinite prison you know and love."

"Huh?"

In response to these words, Lucious turned and saw a woman sitting elegantly in a white chair.

She is probably in her early twenties. Her hair is very long and pinkish in color, reaching down to her waist. Her body was slim and slender, her eyelashes long and she had beautiful slanted eyes.

She was a very beautiful woman to say the least. I wonder if Char will look like that when she grows up.

The woman takes a cup of tea off of a white table and brings it to her mouth, then points to another white chair in front of her and asks Lucius to sit down.

Lucious was unsure, but felt no hostility from the person in front of him.

"Um, excuse me."

"You don't have to be so formal. Oh, please drink this. It will calm you down."

Once seated, the woman offers Lucious a teacup filled with an unfamiliar liquid that he wonders where she got from.

The liquid was a light pink color, with cherry petals floating in it. Lucius hesitated for a moment, but in the end drank it in one gulp.

"...Oh, it's delicious."

"Fufu, that's good to know."

Lucius' heart pounded when he saw the face of the mysterious woman laughing.

She has a warm personality, and every time he sees her, he feels very comfortable. She was very beautiful and mysterious at the same time.

"Who are you?"

"My name is Sakura Oka. The hero Oger has entrusted me to be the guardian of this infinite prison."
