they had seen each other since they had confronted the demon.
She could see his pale skin, as if he was sick.
His dark shadowed purple eyes were unremarkable.


Her wore training uniform unless it was a theory class or a special school event.


Only clothes that allowed free movement of the body and specialized in activities, but it really showed Henry’s excellent appearance and solid body, despite the fact that he didn’t pay much attention to his appearance.


Perhaps Leon also belonged to the 1st Order.


But she was not looking for Leon any more.


As Carmen took off, Filina slowly followed him.


A small sigh escaped from between her lips.


It was yesterday that Weaver had called her, and this time it was Carmen.


She didn’t understand the flow of life at the academy, which had only just begun.


Instead of going to the office, which she would come after a short walk, Carmen went into an unidentified building right next door.


It took a long time to undo how many locks were on the door because why was the atmosphere so gloomy for exchanging interviews? Once inside, a quaint smell vibrated.


The space, shrouded in darkness, was somewhat inconsistent when it came to human traffic.


“Where do you think this is?”


Carmen, who was walking in front of Filina, asked.


“…I don’t know.”


She gave a frank answer as she looked around.
Then Carmen, who had stopped in his tracks, pointed somewhere.


“Go and check it out yourself.”


Raising her eyebrows at his words, Filina walked with Carmen’s caution.
Then the iron bars, which could not be seen clearly from a distance, gradually came into her view. 


At the same time, she heard a strange and unidentifiable voice.
It was not the voice of an animal, but it was somewhat vague. 


It was a little sharper and rougher than an animal’s.
Filina, who had been carefully peering through the bars, opened her eyes wide.


 “Um, isn’t that a demon?”


She muttered as she backed away.
In the deep darkness of the place, she could see an ugly looking monster. 


It was asleep, and its eyes were closed with its body curled up.
Hot breath flowed at regular intervals over its beak-like protruding mouth, but each time it did, small black sparks flew.
It looked ferocious.


“That’s right.”


Carmen spoke in a weighted tone as he approached.
Filina could not manage her expression.
She couldn’t understand how on earth this could be an interview. 


“You’ll be seeing them a lot from now on, once Sir Debussy officially becomes a cadet.”


His eyes stared at Filina.


 “Not all who enter the Swordsmanship Academy become excellent knights.”


Carmen’s cold voice made Filina choke up. 


“Survive, or you will die.”




“It’s one or the other.”


As she watched Carmen, her iris moved sideways to face the demon through the bars.


The huge body of the demon was causing a strange sense of pressure. 


“It’s not like the Swordsmanship Academy had zero history of admitting women.”


Carmen’s words brought Filina’s gaze back to him. 


“Women of exceptional talent, such as Sir Bessie and Sir Debussy, were occasionally admitted to the Academy of Swordsmanship.” 




“However, there has never been a woman among the graduates.”


They entered the school, but they didn’t graduate….


Filina looked at him with a look of incomprehension.
Then Carmen raised his eyes sharply and continued.


 “Many people died, or their bodies were damaged, that they voluntarily dropped out without graduating.”


Of course, the fact didn’t change for men either.
Some seniors had their arms wrapped in bandages, while others had one of their eyes covered with an eye mask.
All of them had been injured during training. 


That was how hard the training at the Swordsmanship Academy was known to be as they advanced.
In fact, if they became knights and competed in a war or were scouted for the Imperial Palace, they never knew what kind of situation they would face, so they went into rigorous training. 


This was the very reason why the status of the knights produced by the military academy was so high.
If they were not strong, they wouldn’t survive.


“So, pull yourself together.
Even the new students will regret it if they are not well trained.
Now, I said this because I was more worried about Sir Debussy than Sir Bessie.
I have seen a lot of new students in my life.
When I train a class even for a short time, I can roughly guess who will survive to the end.”




 “If you’re going to run away, you’d better do it now.
That would be a wise choice.”


His voice was quite compassionate, but his true intentions were not very gratifying.


After all, he was telling her that if she was going to leave, she should leave now because she didn’t seem to be able to hold out at the academy.


A vain laugh escaped from between her lips.


Weaver was also frustrated that he couldn’t get rid of her, and this person in front of her now was exactly the same.
Filina looked at Carmen and asked.


“Did you say what you told me to do to the other students?”


Carmen answered her words with a long, thin raise of his lips.


“Of course I did.
Most of them were frightened and ran away in fear when I told them this.
It was a funny sight.
Why did they come here with a mere spirit like that?”


Carmen continued with a firm expression.


“I hate the weak the most.
I despise most of all the arrogant people who set foot in the academy without knowing their place.
Therefore, Sir Debussy, if you don’t intend to undergo proper training, then leave.
There is not a place for people like you.”
