At the academy, there are two days off per week. This was decided by King Froy of Exador.
It is said that King Froy borrowed the wisdom of his friend, the S-class adventurer Kikuchi, when it came to drawing up the detailed rules of the school.
This school has adopted a novel system that has never been seen before, and it is even rumored that the person named Kikuchi may have come from another world.
In other words, I have a lot of free time today.
"Ah～ I'm free!"
Lucius smiled as he walked down the thriving street of the business district.
I'm always training or hanging out with my friends on days off, but today I didn't make plans with any of them, this day I want to rest as much as possible. Besides, Char said she had plans, and since I don't, that leaves me all alone for today.
"I'm getting hungry. I'm going to get something to eat..."
Lucius listens carefully to the sounds around him to see if there is anything tasty around him.
He knows what is for sale by the sound of people ringing up customers and the sound of meat being cooked. This is due to him using qigong to heighten the sensitivity of his five senses.
But there is something peculiar that catches his attention among the various sounds, so he stops and concentrates on that one place.
It was the sound of two men shouting.
And it was coming from the back alley. Moreover, one of the voices sounded familiar to Lucius.
"Maybe that person is..."
Lucius walks into the alley full of curiosity.
One of the two voices belonged to an old man with a bald head who kept shouting. And the other one was Lucius' classmate, the beastman "Wolf Blackbite".
Wolf stood there, his black tail and ears standing on end, threatening to jump the old man at any moment.
It would only take the slightest movement from the old man for Wolf to attack. This will turn into a bloody fight at any moment.
Lucius rushes to get between them and try to calm them down.
"Wait a minute, what's going on here!?"
Wolf is surprised when Lucius suddenly appears in front of him.
"Huh!!? What the hell are you doing here!!? This is none of your business!!!"
"It's okay, I'll take care of this."
Lucius ignores Wolf's words and turns to the old man and asks him again what's going on.
"What's going on here?"
"Do you know this guy? This beastman stole my belongings! He's a dirty thief! This is why I hate beastmen!"
Having said that, the old man glared at Wolf as if he was looking at something disgusting.
