《The Legend of the Fox Demon》[The Legend of the Fox Demon] - The Bunny(2)

track of him. Leo stared at the strange area and decided to wait to see if the crow came back out. The trees were so large and so packed that a thick canopy was constructed that even birds would struggle to fly out of. So, Leo reckoned that the bird would either come back this way or go to find another way out. Either way it didn matter much to Leo, he had a lot of free time on his hands, so he decided to lay in the grass.

While lying there he found it strange that there weren any bugs annoying him. His eyes slightly squeezed as he tried to recall a place without bugs. It is a magical world after all, maybe they had put a spell up for the convenience for the students. Leo rolled his eyes at that thought, babying soldiers in training is a good way to get them killed. Eventually he just settled on it being a magic spell and found himself falling asleep.

As he started to lose consciousness, he thought to himself, ”Maybe I shouldn have thought of something so boring. ”

Hearing the crack of a stick Leos upper body shot up. The first thing he noticed was darkness, it seemed like he had fallen asleep for a couple of hours. The second thing was a pair of eyes staring at him from that strange void, now ever darker. The eyes were unflinching and unblinking, they didn move even after nearly a minute.

But then they got closer, and closer, and closer, until eventually Leo could make out a figure. It was the strange woman from before who wore the bunny mask. Even now she wore it, as well as the suit. She walked out from the woods and stood in front of Leo who had yet to get up from the grass.

”It would be wise to sleep indoors next time. ” Her tone was strict, and she quickly turned around to head back into the forest, ”As a reminder, students aren allowed to leave the premises, the woods are off limits. ”

With that she disappeared into the darkness as quickly as she came.

Leo got up from the grass and his back was slightly sore from the sturdy ground. With a sigh he turned and started heading back to the dorm. As he made it towards the dormitory, he saw two figures in the dirt training area. He watched them for a moment before recognizing them as the blonde girl and red hair guy from Ethans class.

The two seemed to be sparring with wooden swords and the girl was winning by far. As the guy landed on the dirt from being hit, he noticed Leo standing ominously just outside the light from the dormitory.

”E-Evelyn I think theres a teacher over there. ”

The blonde girl, apparently named Evelyn, turned around and saw Leo as well. She waved at him and yelled, ”Hey teach! We
e just sparring! ”

Hearing this Leo slightly frowned, it mustve been around midnight, maybe even later, and he felt bad for any students who were light sleepers. He walked over to the two out of curiosity more than anything else.

”Oh, its not a teacher. ” The blonde-haired girl remarked before sticking out her hand at Leo, ”Evelyn Castille. This bag of rocks here is Kyle Stout. ”

”Mathias Doe. ” Leo replied, returning the handshake, ”What
e you two doing out so late, besides causing a ruckus? ”

”Oh! Im sorry, did we wake you. ”

”No, I accidently fell asleep over by the woods, I was just returning to my dorm. I was more so referring to your shouting. ”

”Ah, I see. ”

”Why are you sparring anyway, thats what the teachers are for. ”

”Well, I grew up sword fighting. Us Castilles are famed for it and Kyle here got the dealer class, but he doesn know the first thing about swords. ” Evelyn said with a slight frown.

”Ah, Castille, you
e a part of a royal family, right? ” Leo asked.

”Yep! We
e pretty low on the food chain and we don really care about all that royal stuff though. Any other family and Id be horrified to head back home, I ended up getting the grim class and not the dealer class. But my family doesn really care. ”

”Thats nice. But, ” Leo looked at Kyle, ”letting your body rest at appropriate times is also an important part of training. ”

Evelyn snapped her fingers and said, ”I forgot about that. ” She looked at the ground with a slightly upset face.

Leo helped Kyle back up and comforted Evelyn a bit before finally headed back towards his dorm, leaving the two of them alone. Upon reaching his room he silently opened the door and walked inside. He saw the royal jolt up from his bed holding what looked like a gun and flipping on the light next to him.

”Who is it?! ”

Upon noticing it was Leo, he froze. His face went slightly red, and he turned off his light as quickly as possible. He coughed slightly and mumbled as he hid himself under his bedsheets, ”First that Castille girl wakes me up and now this. Ugh. ”

Leo blinked in confusion before quietly and quickly brushing his teeth. He then hopped in bed and quickly entered the sea of dreams.
