August's POVThe ringing that we heard disappeared when we reached what looked like a stone ruin with vines. But we hardly moved at the same time when someone focused on our eyes. Immediately we saw the tribes with black faces. Is the clay mask a trend for them? But it can't be a clay mask because I know it's not. It's like slapping their face with a caldera's ass."Foreigners! What's your purpose and have you strayed into our territory?!" Boldly asked a big man who was just carrying a spear and if any wrong move we would make, he would throw the spear at us.I can't speak! I seem to be stoned to where I stand. We might be strong be we are outnumbered. I am hesitating if I have to move or not. But I was about to move and jump when someone stopped me. I immediately turned around and immediately saw Cayden looking at me and he shook his head a little, giving me a signal not to do whatever I am planning to do.I gritted my teeth. We are obviously in a very dangerous situation. Those like
August's POVI didn't know how I was able to sleep last night. Last night was a nightmare. We didn't do anything but just sit and wait for those ghosts to fade away and their screeching scream is nerve-wracking. I bet, I already have another set of bags under my eyes.I came out of the tent and I saw everyone how busy they were. But I was stopped by the wild grumbling in my stomach. That's right, I couldn't even eat last night even though I was hungry. Who would feel hungry if you are surrounded by ghosts? There was food but I couldn't force myself to eat. It's hard for me. My fear of ghosts is way more than my hunger.Suddenly my mouth watered when I smelled grilled fish. I immediately followed the smell as if my feet had a mind of their own and my instinct knew where the smell was coming from. And there I saw my group they are in a circle and grilling with a man-made bonfire."Hey, it's good that you're awake. This is almost done and we can eat." Gen. happily promised.I snorted. "I
August's POVMy surroundings almost beat our school grounds because of the cleanliness. I'm not even sure what's going to happen, as long as I'm hot-headed I want to step on it so I piled my annoyance on the dry leaves and kicked them.My anger has gathered. First, doing a mission without any concrete plans. Second, we are looking for something that we don't even have any idea what it is. There are no even clues, no evidence gathered. Then I'm the type of person who will rush if there is information gathered. Do you think I won't explode? How many times have I complained inside my brain? I tried not to complain because I know that they have their way but it was just too much. We still beat the newbies.I looked at the relatively small trees compared to the others. What happened to them? Why did they fall? I tried to remember if it had fallen before I arrived. But I really can't imagine! I'm not sure. But maybe it fell before I came because I didn't come near them."When can I go home?
August's POV"Misha! Is this true? I'm back?" I can hardly believe the question. As far as I remember, I was still in Pandora and wounded."Yes, August... good and you're back. We've been looking for you for a long time." Misha started crying."I'm sorry, I didn't know that I was going to be taken to another planet," I said with a snort. But to be honest, I'm happy because I'm finally home. I don't belong there anyway."I wish you took me with you! Do you know how hard life is here without you? I can hardly leave the house. Gangsters are waiting outside the school because they are looking for you. Even your underlings, another group." It's a complaint again."Tss, yes. But did I know that I was going to go there? If only I had known, I wouldn't have told you to have a picnic there." I promise I'm pissed off here.I'm jealous that I can go home. I just didn't think I was back home. I thought, I will die there in Tierrabithea Tribe but it seems not because here I am, alive and well."Bu
August's POVI'm making my bed because now I can get out of the hospital. I still felt sullen that Gen didn't even visit. How busy are they? I didn't even hear any news from them. Or maybe because I am useless to them since I got injured. That thought makes me sad."August! The Elites are home!" Alice screamed rushing into the room.I smiled here. I did not feel any excitement at all because the sullenness was more dominant."Okay." I just answered here and fixed myself. Sometimes this Alice is also insensitive.Alice noticed that I was not in the mood so she didn't sculpt me. She's the only one who stayed by my side when I needed help. I don't remember anyone who went to visit me or even said hello if I was okay or if I was still alive. And now, she's saying they are back. I completely understand that they went on a mission but why do I still feel this way? I tried to shrug it off from my mind and started to think positively. Maybe this is just an effect of my near-death experience.
August's POVI try to avoid them all. I stayed in my room or I went out and hung out in every part of the Academy. Library in the corner of the laboratory or the maze garden. I also take out food. I don't want to eat in the pantry because I will only see them there too. I am also eating in the room.I am now in my room. I plan to go to the library. There is no class. I just thank you. I need to check some books in the restricted section. I have access to that because I'm an Elite. Weird, I still have the position even though the real August is back. But what is his right? I was the one who earned this position and he was not. I defeated Venna with my skill so he has no right to do this to me, I will hit his face.I left the room and unfortunately they were all downstairs as if they were waiting for someone. I walked held high but I wasn't looking at them. They sounded so happy and I was irritated because of that."August, we have a mission. Let's go." Franco's voice said.I do not car
August's POVI was terrified as I looked at the towering entrance of the Academy. A deafening sound was coming from here because of the loud banging of the orcs. I don't know what they use to do that. Wood or their body itself? I do not know."The barrier won't last if they keep bumping," Kaye said the worry on his face was obvious."I know. No matter how strong the foundation is, it can still be torn apart by desperate orcs." I said that there was a lot of tension. That's right, what's the difference between beautiful and desperate flirting? hahaBut before the others could react, the barrier suddenly rattled and creaked loudly as it fell and created a deafening noise and thick dust.I closed my eyes because I almost fell asleep. Angel Grace immediately intervened and created a shield so that we would not continue to be hit by the sleeping dust because the orcs might attack while we were closing our eyes. Maybe we will lose right away from the start of the match.I slowly opened my e
Cayden's POVI immediately ran fast when I saw King Laurent heading towards August to stab him. I knew I could reach it so I immediately hugged August and tried to teleport but I just heard a growl from behind me. I stopped and could not move immediately."Pity, you saved your ............love, while he saved his love. My death is not for nothing after all. I may be dead, but still....... ...... I............won." I heard King Laurent promise in a weak voice. I heard that someone fell and someone followed."August!" Gen. screamed in disgust. I saw that Gen tried to run but Lucas stopped him.My body suddenly felt cold. Something suddenly entered my mind and I was filled with fear when I did not see him in Gen's group."Oh my god..." August also gasped, now looking behind me.I couldn't stop myself and immediately turned to see what was happening. Horror filled my body when I saw August..... my August..... the sword was stuck in his stomach to his back. I felt like the world suddenly s
