Chapter 123
Noah entered the building and sat on one of the farthest seats from the teacher's desk .

Megan was already there waiting for all the students to gather .
June arrived right after and sat next to him .
"Why didn't you join Daniel?"
Noah replied in a calm tone .
"Because I had a lesson . "
"But isn't he the most famous person in the academy?"
Noah shrugged his shoulders .
"Should I care?"
"Well, face is really important to nobles . There is a high chance that his group will retaliate . "
Noah shrugged his shoulders again and focused on Megan .
The course went on for a few hours with the Professor explaining the most common usage of the various centers of power .
After that, Noah went back to his lodging and found out that June's warning was on point .
Two male students were standing in front of his accommodation with smirks on their faces .
"Do you think that breaking Lord Daniel's record gives you the right to ignore him?"
The other continued .
"Lord Daniel is too kind and doesn't care about that stuff but you clearly disrespected him this morning . You'd better follow us and apologize in front of him . "

Noah understood part of the situation .
'They want to gain points with that guy by using me as a sacrifice?'
Noah shook his head and spoke in an uncaring tone .
"Hey, what is the meaning of "gravely injure" according to the academy rules?"
The two students were a bit surprised by his words and replied honestly .
"Well, any permanent injury of course . "
Noah nodded and wielded his sabers .
"I only want to cultivate in peace but if you force me, I will break both your arms and hang you naked on the board on this side of the river . "
The two students were speechless for a moment before exploding in a sonorous laugh .
"Who do you think you are!? If you ever touch me, L-"
He could not finish his phrase since Noah had already appeared in front of him .
The handle of his saber hit with incredible momentum the pit of the student's stomach .
The student fell on his knees and began to throw up .
Noah grabbed his head and smashed it on the ground, making him faint .
The other student grew scared and turned to run away .
Noah charged again, a small black circle appeared under his foot, speeding up his assault .

He immediately arrived behind the other student and strongly hit his nape with the bladeless side of his saber .
He fainted on the spot due to the impact of Noah's attack .
'The Shadow steps spell sure is useful!'
He had used the rank 0 spell in both his charges to obtain a greater momentum and the effects greatly pleased him .
'Now, let's take care of these two . '
A great commotion occurred that day in the academy .
One of the new students carried two of his seniors on the board at the center of the lodging area .
The seniors were unconscious and were, most importantly, naked from head to toe .
The new student then hanged them upside down on the board and went away uncaringly .

'I really went too easy on them . '
Noah sighed, he was back in his room .
In the end, he didn't break their arms, he was still too wary of Thaddeus' threat .
'Well, they should have learnt their lesson at least . If they ever come back for more trouble, I'll just be harsher with my methods . '
He was in a good mood since he had had the chance to test his new spell, its effects were like he had predicted .
'I should even be able to fly for longer times since I can continuously use the Shadow steps in the air . I guess I will have to do more experiments as soon as I pick a mission . '

He spent the rest of the day training, waking up early in the morning to attend the real battle course .
There were many people on the streets of the academy and most of them gazed at Noah before whispering in their groups .
'Everyone should now know that I'm not to bother, good . '
His message seemed to be fully conveyed as no one dared to cross his eyes .
"Was it a good fight?"
With the exception of June, of course .
"It wasn't really a fight . "
June nodded and continued to move forward .
"We need a sparring partner in today's course . Can I count on you for that?"
Noah thought for a bit and then nodded after adding something .
"As long as you watch your mouth from now on . "

Time passed peacefully for Noah in the academy .

He would attend his three weekly lessons and then spend the rest of his time cultivating .
His knowledge of magical beasts became vaster as it did his expertise in the cultivation topic .
His strength also steadily rose and, with June as his sparring partner, he had become quite used to the changes in his fighting style .
Almost two months had passed since his entrance in the academy and it was time for him to complete a mission .
Noah was standing in front of the board with a pensive expression .
Since the events with Daniel's followers, no one ever bothered him again .
Adding that to his increasingly cold aura, it was no wonder that very few people ever approached him .
'However, if they want some kind of revenge, I believe that this will be the best moment . '
All the missions that he could accept were outside of the academy ground .
If the two students managed somehow to place an ambush on him, things could get troublesome .
'They would need a man in the inside though . Well, even if they do plan something, I will just use this chance to test my progress . '
The oath they swore concerned the academy, the information about its students was quite free to divulge .
In the end, he picked the hunting mission with the biggest reward and moved to the exit of the academy .
He felt some gazes on him and one of them was especially intense .
'Here is the man on the inside . '
Noah turned to look in that direction only to see Samuel Muwlos calmly smirking at him .
He then placed his token on the passage for the outside and hurriedly exited the academy .
Seeing that, Samuel picked a wooden tablet and neared it to his mouth .
"He went out, have fun . "
