"Shadows envelop one's dreams"

Previously on Novus Magus: Lei protected me against the heckling from the class, though the way he handled it caused him to get into trouble. I hope that he'll be fine- Adela

*Adela*

After class we waited what felt like an eternity for Mr. Suzuran to finish talking to Lei.

"When do you think that he'll get out?" Iah asked with a sigh. His hands rubbed his stomach. "I'm starving."

"You can go eat, " I said, staying still. The door creaked open, causing Iah to jump.

"Ah, you're here!" he said, snickering.

Lei nodded as he walked out of the classroom, his face calm. His turquoise eyes landed upon me. "Are you fine? Did those kids stop picking on you?" he asked, walking over to me.

"They didn't bother me, " I said, as I tried to hold back a smile. He extended his hand out to me, causing me to smile even more. I took his hand and raised from the floor. "Thanks, for standing up for me. I'm sure they'll stop, you scared them pretty bad."

Lei let go of my hand and glanced at the pearly, white marble floor. "I hope so." His hands clenched into tight fists which let out tiny azure sparks. "The way they called you a witch made me feel sick." He stared at me with fierce eyes. "I won't allow anyone to bully you or the others. I won't allow anyone else... to be subjected to such treatment."

What happened to him during these past few years? He used to be such a confident child. Was this all Ayawamat's doing?

"Don't let those kids bother you, " Ren said as he came out of the class. What had he been doing all this time? "They're just jealous of Adela's ability to make level three potions with cheap ingredients, and with ease too." He scratched his head as he looked at me, his face slightly red. "Uh, would you mind showing me one of these days how to make one as good as yours?"

"The first potion you made was quite good, " I pointed out, glancing at the veil clenched in his hand. "Why didn't you show it to Mr. Suzuran?"

Ren rubbed the back of his head, laughing. "Thanks for the compliment but it wasn't that good, I can do better. I still have a long way to go. Anyway, see you later! I'm off to eat!" He rushed off in the direction of the cafeteria.

"Yes, it's time to eat!" Yen said, rubbing her stomach as she took a step forward. "I was starving!"

Lei sighed. "Sorry for making you wait for me."

"Don't mind her. You should know that she's always hungry, " Hikaru exclaimed with a snicker. He turned to look at our team, his smile gone and his eyes narrowed. "Before we eat, you said you had something to tell us at the start of class. Did something happen during first period?"

"Renshu was right in warning us about some of the students here, " Iah responded as he put his hands into the pockets of his black pants. He walked over to the opposite side of the hall before spinning to look at all of us. "Eight masked Kyuu Seishinian students attacked us."

"I wish I could say that I'm surprised, but I'm not, " Zelde said, taking a deep breath. "The Kyuu Seishinians haven't been very welcoming thus far."

I had nearly forgotten that Zelde didn't like them either. Which shouldn't have happened considering how she yelled, "Die Kyuu Seishinians!" during her iconic possession.

"Can we handle them?" Wanikiya questioned, furrowing his brow with anxiety. "Were they strong?"

"We were saved by Eien, " Nyima said, crossing her arms over her chest. "He scared the eight off before we could gauge their strength properly."

"Then they must either be weak

scare me like that!"

He gave me a toothy grin as he chuckled. "I didn't think I was scary. Most think of me as cute!" he said putting his hands up like a cartoon dog.

I laughed a little. "Stop that, you look lame doing that!"

He put his hands back down and continued to grin. It was then that I noticed that he was holding onto bags filled with food. "Hey, have you eaten yet? I can share some of my food. I bought plenty."

"It's fine. I already have a box lunch waiting for me." I glanced around. "Why are you here?"

He pointed to the room behind. It was the conference room for the Student Council. "I was ordered to get some food."

That explained all the bags. "You shouldn't give away other's food."

He scoffed as if I had accused him of a crime. "I was going to give you mine. The others would kill me if I gave you theirs."

I couldn't help but smile. I turned around to avoid having him see my weird grin. "Thanks for the offer. If you're free next time, then I'll be glad to eat with you."

I snuck a peek at him, he smiled so widely that one could see his canines with ease. "Sure, it's a date!"

A date? My face flushed which cause him to follow suit. "I... didn't mean it that way..." He scratched his head nervously and turned away. "Uh, see ya!" He rushed off without another word.

Why had I blushed? It wasn't like Lei had asked me me out. Lei... I figured that he and Iah had already found Nyima so I decided to return to where the others were.

"Adela, " Ulissis said, frowning. "Where are your teammates?"

I snapped my fingers and shook my head. "You mean that they aren't back yet?"

"Maybe they're still looking, " Ms. Key said optimistically. Her hopeful facade soon collapsed, giving way to a worried scowl. "If they don't return soon, we might have to contact security."

I shook my head. "I'll find them. You stay here in case they return." Damn it, Lei! You told me to be careful, yet you're the one getting in trouble!
