Headmaster

"Headmaster Jean?" Kyle repeated.

"Yes… He doesn't want to be called Headmaster Hoffman. Ahem, I don't know the reason why he's calling you but he seemed to be in a good mood so don't worry. Maybe he just wanted to ask about your enrollment." The female professor replied.

Kyle gently nodded as he tried to think what the Headmaster was planning to do this time.

"I see… Where can I find the Headmaster, Madam?"

"He's in the Headmaster's Office… You can find your way there. I'll be going elsewhere. By the way, I'm Professor Stella Harwin. I'm teaching Fundamentals of the Magic Zone. Make sure to attend it." Stella said with a smile as she seemed to be looking forward to the class.

'What did Headmaster say to her? Ugh…' Kyle felt a headache as he replied. "Thank you, Professor Harwin… I'll be looking forward to your class…"

With that said, the female professor finally left leaving Vale to his own device.

It didn't take long before he found the Headmaster's Office.

Along the way, he met a few female students. They are all wearing skirts that reach their ankles and high-collar dress uniform that covers their upper chest and neck.

They all look prim and properly feminine but according to his memories, the female students have another uniform. That particular one looks more comfortable since that dress uniform is sleeveless and low cut bodices… If he wasn't mistaken, it can be worn on specific days.

"Come in, Vale…"

As he was about to knock on the door, he heard the Headmaster's familiar voice.

Kyle took a deep breath before entering the spacious headmaster's office.

Headmaster Jean is seated behind his desk and he seemed to be playing a board game on his own. Kyle wasn't sure if it was a chess game but whatever it is, he certainly doesn't know how to play it so he didn't stare at it for too long.

"Did Heinz teach you how to play Rack and Ruin?" Headmaster Jean asked as Kyle closes the door.

"No, Headmaster Jean..." Kyle replied.

'Is that the name of the board game?' He added in his mind.

"Ah? How about Invasion or even Stroke of Luck? Those are games that nobles would normally play or even gamble."

Kyle shook his head after hearing this. He doesn't really care whether he would befriend a few nobles or not. He's not in the academy to befriend them in the first place. He's here to learn how to get stronger by understanding the Darkness Arcane Path.

His Extraction System doesn't give him knowledge and he can only obtain it here in the Academy. He won't waste the opportunity given to him.

"Well, I guess this is not important… I called you here since Heinz mentioned a few things to me… He told me that he didn't leave enough money for you. Is that true?" Headmaster Jean asked.

"…"

Kyle was momentarily speechless after hearing this. He didn't expect that they will be discussing how poor he was.

"Yes, Headmaster… He left me with ten thousand zen. I heard that it should be more than enough for my first three years here since most of the expenses will be covered by the Academy. Master Heinz also mentioned that I can start accepting a part-time job after my third year." Kyle replied.

"That's correct. The truth is… Heinz had an incredible contribution to the Academy before he left. I asked him for any rewards that he wanted… and he made two requests…"

As Headmaster Jean said this, Kyle felt that one of the requests was related to him. Otherwise, there is no point in bringing him here in the first.

He was right…

"He first requested to no longer be tied down by the Faction… I granted it. The second request is that I should give you an opportunity…" The Headmaster said as he showed an ominous smile.

Kyle recalled seeing this same smile when his shadow was taken from him.

"What opportunity, Headmaster Jean?" Kyle cautiously asked.

However, the Headmaster only maintained his smile and answered.

"I don't know… However, whatever opportunity it is, I can only give it to you once."

Kyle felt alarmed as he realized that this request is certainly an incredible thing. He's unsure what was about to happen to him in this academy… There are certainly plenty of opportunities here aside from the opportunities gained by attending classes.

If the headmaster assisted him in one of the most beneficial opportunities that can be gained in the Academy, it would certainly bring a huge change to him.

"If you have something in your mind you can tell me about it." The Headmaster asked.

"I can't think of anything yet, Headmaster. If I found any "opportunity", I will inform you immediately."

"Good… One last thing, Heinz mentioned that you have an interesting hobby that is quite similar to Professor Chalton of the Necromancy Department… If you don't mind, I can give you an opportunity to see my collection in my basement."

"…"

This time, Kyle was truly speechless and unable to react for a while. It took him a few seconds to process what he was trying to say…

'Master Heinz… You've really done it this time. You even mentioned that to the Headmaster…' Kyle could only sigh inwardly.

Nevertheless, he truly considered his offer for a moment… After all, the corpses in his collection might be extraordinary.

"I will think about it first, Headmaster. I need to consider it carefully since I can only receive one opportunity."

"Very well." Headmaster Jean expected this answer so he allowed him to take his time.

They ended their discussion here and Kyle simply returned to his dormitory room instead of walking around…

On the next day, all the first-year students including Kyle gathered at the auditorium to attend the entrance ceremony.
