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

mask and golden pin. Their animal was a rather ferocious-looking wolf, its mouth was gripping a strange canister. Unlike the bunny, he had no gun holsters, instead, he carried a rather large, sleek black suitcase. The man was currently talking with someone on the phone.

Seeing the bunny, he covered the phones microphone and spoke to her. ”Prep after you drop them off, recon found another lab, Site-04. Then, youll go back to the students. ” After saying his piece, he went back to his previous conversation and walked off with rather annoyed eyes.

She now started walking again but with slower steps, after only around another minute, they came upon a large vault. Outside stood various guards wearing bullet-proof vests and helmets. Over their shoulders were rifles, but their hands laid on their pistols on their hips, excluding one of the guards.

He walked over to the bunny, and she handed him the clipboard. He skimmed through it before walking away. After around a minute he walked out with a handful of people in white lab coats. There were about five of them and the four in the front were currently putting on their gloves, the one in the back was carrying a container.

They stopped in front of everyone, and the foremost man spoke, ”Through those doors is a teleporter, we recently had problems with a rat leaking your training grounds. So, weve increased security even more. Now, all of you will be sedated and none of you will be told the location that you
e heading to. I don care about, My father will hear about this and all that. They have no authority over this, so don even bother annoying me. Well be heading down the list of people, when we reach you, hand over your bags, sit in the wheelchair, and stick out your arm. ”

After saying this, they started going down the list, it very quickly reached Leo. Upon reaching him, he handed over his backpack and sat down in a wheelchair they brought over. He was a little wary sticking out his arm as he didn like needles. But he did it and quickly felt a slightly cold liquid enter his arm before he drifted asleep.

He shot up in his chair sometime after. He looked around the room in a panic, but he remembered the moments just before and calmed himself down. He took a deep breath and looked around again, but with a clear head.

He was in a large classroom, and he sat at a wooden desk. The windows to the outside world were slightly dusty and they were surrounded by a forest. In the classroom, he noticed plenty of other students, more than in the building earlier. They were all busy sleeping away at their desks, some even snoring. It seemed like he was the first to wake up.

He looked towards the front of the classroom and saw a man with glasses flipping silently through a book. As if sensing the gaze, he looked up and met Leos eyes. He stared for a minute, seemingly surprised, and waved Leo over.

Before Leo got up, his hand went to his neck, feeling for something. Upon his fingers feeling a cold metal, he faintly smiled and stood up. He quietly scooted his chair in, noticing his backpack laid underneath, and headed over to the man.

”I see you
e awake already. You must be the kid John was talking about. ” He rubbed his eyes with a yawn and continued, ”I take it youve been on the program for a while now, how are you faring now? ”

Leo watched him for a moment before saying, ”Better, I can go a few days without needing to balance myself. ” They were referring to Leo consuming souls.

”Good. Good. Alright, ” he took off his glasses, stuffing them into a pocket in his coat, ”you should be fine when we give the blank slates demonic blood. During their adaptation period, youll also need to recover a bit. But I do have a question if you don mind. ”

”Go ahead. ”

”Where did you get the angelic blood? ”

”… ”

”… ” A silence permeated the two, occasionally broken by snores coming from behind Leo.

”Im honestly not sure, ” Leo said with a slightly aggravated face. ”But I can wait until I found out. ”

”…Good enough for me. ” The man said after another moment of silence. He stuck out his hand saying, ”Ethan Burns, your General Studies teacher. ”

”Mathias Doe. ”

”I see youve taken Johns last name, thats nice. ” He smiled.

”It was the least I could do. ”

”Well, you
e living up to the name so far, ” Ethan said with a slight smile.

”Hows that? ”

”Well, ” he motioned behind Leo, prompting him to turn around, ”as you can see, you
e the only one awake. That sedative can knock out an elephant for nearly an hour, the average demon and human for around three. ”

”… ”

”It takes a bit for them to get you all here after checking all of your things. But you got here around twenty minutes ago. So… I hope you keep living up to the name of Doe, its not easy to impress that man. Im going to take this as a good omen. ”

”I see… ”

”Alright, you can go sit down now, you
e going to be here for a while. Oh. Actually… ”

”Hmm? ” As Leo was going back to his seat, he turned around to face Ethan.

”Can you smell them? ”

”Smell what? ”

He clicked his tongue, ”I guess you being a seeker would be asking too much. ” Afterward, he chuckled as he took his glasses back out and opened the book.

Leo stood there for a moment before shaking his head slightly and returning to his seat. He took out a book from his backpack and slumped into his chair. His eyes quickly read through the words, and he flipped the page.

After about an hour and a half, another student woke up. Like Leo, he jumped awake before looking around, attracting both Leo and Ethans attention.

Leo faintly heard Ethan mummer, ”This class is going to be filled with monsters, I just know it. ”
