everal hours of immersing myself in knowledge, I began to feel hungry.

I initially ignored it, but theres only so much one can take.
Once I reached my limit, I decided to satiate my hunger and left my room.

Treading the sturdy flight of stairs, I descended slowly and carefully, already feeling tired from not having too much energy left.

Why did I push myself? I groaned internally with regret.

Upon reaching the ground floor which took the form of a lounge, I proceeded to my left side where my meal was supposed to have been placed.

Out meals were brought at intervals; morning, afternoon, and night.
They were properly packaged and special personnel brought them promptly.
Since the food brought was according to our exact number, we all had our allocated portions without any need to worry about leftovers or deficits.

Uh? I muttered in surprise upon getting to the large table where all the food would have been kept.

Nothing was there!

Oi, oi, oi! Youre kidding, right? My mind rang.

This was no laughing matter.
I was hungry to the point of collapsing.
I needed that meal!

An expression of disbelief showed clearly on my face as I stood, frozen.
However, as I was still trying to figure out what had occurred, I heard tiny laughs and Snickers from behind.




Since my senses were always been sharpened by magic, I was able to pick up their unpleasant noises of amusement.

Are they laughing at me? An unpleasant feeling enveloped me the moment I considered a very plausible answer.

A small smile appeared on my face as I made a wild guess concerning what had happened to my food.
Turning away from the table, I approached the group that sat in the lounge area.

It was the usual squad that dominated the boys dorm.
Since Stefan wanted nothing to do with anyone and simply locked himself in his room, only coming out for compulsory activities or meals, he wasnt the ringleader of the boys.

No, that title belonged to the one who scored third in our exams Ivan Smith!

I made sure to keep a poker face as I approached the group who slowly stopped laughing once they noticed my advance.

Good afternoon, or rather, evening, gentlemen.
I greeted, a basic form of courtesy.

Hey, Ivan, did you hear about the Guardian Spirit of the Library? Jerry, one of Ivans mobs, quickly brought up an irrelevant topic the moment I greeted them.

This displeased me, but I kept my cool.
I wasnt so childish that I would give such an obvious excuse for a snub any reaction.

Do any of you-

Oh? I think I heard something about that.
Ivan interrupted me with an energetic response, intentionally smothering my words with his.

Ah, I see so its them after all My thoughts rang.

I was so hungry that my belly bellowed at me.
It was evening already, and I hadnt had anything but an early breakfast.
Due to how tired I was, there was an option of simply giving up my lunch and waiting for dinner.
This way, I could avoid any conflict.

However, even in my state of weakness there was no way I was going to let this go now.

These brats I should do something.
