Chapter 305

Nalear had been on guard the whole time . Life Vision had allowed her to notice how the ring was full of energies since day one .

She used her blade to pin Solus to the wall and the students as human shields against her spells . They were badly hurt, but thanks to their uniforms there wasn't much tier two spells could do .

Solus's yellow core limited her greatly .

"What a marvelous object . " Nalear blocked Solus with spirit magic .

"It's not only capable to store the user's mana but also to move on its own? It will be an excellent addition to my collection . " Solus could only curse her bad luck . If only Lith's and her energies weren't as one, she could have hurt him enough to activate the array and save him .

When Nalear tried to store Solus inside her dimensional amulet, she was in for another surprise . The amulet didn't respond and Solus kept floating in mid air .

"It's impossible! Is this thing really alive? Good thing I'm always prepared . " She took out a mystical wooden box out of her dimensional amulet . It was engraved with silver runes of power . A blue mana crystal the size of a tennis ball was embedded on its lid .

When Nalear opened it, it generated strings of blue energy that trapped Solus, dragging her inside the box before it closed on itself . She attempted to shapeshift multiple times, but the strings relentlessly followed her, adapting to her every change .

The blue gemstone powered up the runes, sealing its content from the outside world .

The bond between Lith and Solus was broken . The backlash gave Solus a seizure while Lith suddenly woke up, roaring like a wounded beast .

The killing intent he released made two of the students faint . The spirit magic blast he generated made everyone but Nalear fly against a wall and lose consciousness . She sneered at his swan's song, hitting him on the head with the leather club again and again .

The club was another enchanted item she had prepared . It was made so that it would inflict a lot of pain but no harm, draining the victim of their vitality .

What she didn't expect was for Lith's mouth to suddenly open like a maw, filled with fangs instead of teeth . The moment her hand was close enough, he bit her deeply . The fangs dug into her flesh until they reached the bones while seven eyes stared at her with hatred .

Nalear ignored the pain, passing the club to the free hand, resuming the beating . The eyes burned bright in defiance, refusing to let go . The maw was almost closed when the head fell limp again . Even fury had its limits .

"What the f*ck are you?" Nalear cursed while using Invigoration to close her wounds and restore her strength . It took her less than a minute to heal the injured students and replenish their life forces with Invigoration .

They had spent no mana, so they were still in their peak condition .

"Here are your orders, my little lambs . These chains are strong enough to hold an angry Byk, but what's even more important it's their color . " She pointed at the mystical aura surrounding the shackles and the chains both .

"When it's red it means Lith is unconscious . When it turns green, it means he is awake . As soon as it happens, you have to stab him with these knives . "

She handed them the anti-academy knives .

"Don't stop until it turns red again . Wait for my signal . Only then you can kill him . Cut his head and pierce his heart . Just to be safe . " The five students nodded in unison .

"After you are done with him, return to your rooms and wait further instructions . Tomorrow is the big day . "


The next morning, Phloria hummed all the time while she was walking to pick Lith up for their morning stroll before breakfast . She wore the golden lily pendant over her uniform . It didn't matter to her that wearing an early present was bad luck, Phloria was too happy to care about silly superstitions .

'I don't know what Lith did, but my skin had never been so smooth nor my hair so silky and easy to comb . My sisters are going to be so jealous . ' She inwardly giggled . What made her so happy wasn't the beauty treatment itself .

The changes were so slight it was unlikely for anyone to notice them and she knew it . The reason behind her happiness was Phloria felt something had changed between them after the date in Vinea .

Lith was a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but he was finally starting to unravel himself . When she knocked at his door and no response came from inside, it didn't spoil her good mood .

After ten minutes of knocking, she started to worry .

'Maybe he is just too tired . It's no big deal, we'll see each other for breakfast . ' Phloria didn't believe her own thoughts . Lith had never stood her up before .

When he missed breakfast too, she was close to panic . The others tried to reassure her everything was fine and called Lith's on his communication amulet . Yet he never answered .

Fear started to spread, like fire through dried grass . The second gong signalling the start of the Code of Practice without him attending was the final straw .

"Where do you think you are going, Lady Ernas?" Professor Farg yelled at Phloria who was walking away .

"Enter the Warp Gate now or I'll make sure you lose more than a lesson's worth in points!"

"Feel free to report me to Linjos . " Phloria retorted . "It will save me the time to explain to him what's happening! Maybe if two students disappear at once he'll move his lazy a*s . "

Farg attempted to localize Lith with the artifact Lady Tyris had given her, but to no avail .

'It's impossible!' She thought . 'For his hybrid aura to disappear like this, he should be dead . No one can die inside an academy . I have to warn Lady Tyris immediately . '

Phloria had no Guardian to summon by her side, but she had the next best thing .

Jirni Ernas walked through the Warp Gate leading to Linjos's office less than five minutes later, wearing her royal constable badge on her chest, right above the heart .

"What's the meaning of this?" Linjos jumped from his chair . The Gate had opened without his consent .

"Royal override code . " Jirni replied with a stone cold voice .

"I'm constable Ernas, investigating on a missing student case . Hope you remember my husband . "

Linjos turned pale seeing Orion standing right behind her . The memory of him beating the Headmaster an inch from death was still vivid .

"What are you talking about? What case? Do you realize what you coming here could cause? You may have ruined a month of hard work!"

"Not at all . I have here a missing person report and the authorization to investigate . " She slammed on his desk Phloria's statement and Elina's request for intervention . The two women had always kept in contact and after hearing about her son's disappearance, Elina would have even signed a deal with the devil to have him back .

"I have all the necessary paperwork . Find me Lith and I'll walk away before the Gate even closes . "

Linjos had no choice but to comply . He attempted to activate the tracker in Lith's uniform and when it didn't work, he checked all the records about who had got in and out since his last sighting .

"This makes no sense . The tracker can't find him and no one has left the academy unsupervised yet . "

"Well, the good news is that he is still alive and somewhere inside the academy . The even better news is that I finally have a reason to turn this place upside down . Tell Distar that I'm done waiting . Now we are going to play by my rules . "
