"I can't believe the Academy has admitted such perverts," The girl dressed in a white off shoulder dress adorned with blue floral patterns looked at Max with disgust.

She really seemed angry and continued to threaten him, "I will make sure to break every bone in your body and get you expelled."

"Right, Elly?" She turned towards her friend who was assaulted for confirmation.

But only found her friend Elly staring at the guy in a daze.

"Elly, are you okay? Are you hurt anywhere?" She asked with a tensed expression in concern for her friend.

"Ah! I am fine. Let's go, Lisa." Elly said while knitting her brows as she got back onto her feet.

"What! Are we really leaving him like this? At least let me break his legs. He has touched your purity," Lisa said while rolling her imaginary sleeves.

"What are you, a ruffian?" Elly looked at her with amused face.

"Besides, there was only Wilson in the hallway a while ago. I don't think there will be any news about this incident. Unless some moron goes and breaks a person's leg claiming that he hurt my purity," She further said while rolling her eyes at a certain someone.

"Ah! Fine, then."

Listening to her, Lisa gave in. But before leaving, she looked at Max spoke in a determined tone.

"Hey, you pervert!"

Hearing Lisa's voice, Max raised his head.

"You better keep this a secret or else I will make sure that there won't be any need for you to hold any more secrets in your life," She spoke with a light smile which didn't appear to be a smile in Max's eyes at least.

Then she stepped on Max's back making him groan in pain before leaving for her class.

Elly followed after he was after glancing at Mac with a calm look on her face.

'What in hell did I do to deserve this?'

'Who can give me my answers?'

Earlier, Max could have shouted for help to God. But then, even thinking about that reminded him of that old Geezer's face.

His eyes started to get wet. But he held that back.

'No, I won't cry.'

'If that Old Geezer is observing me, he will definitely have a laugh of a lifetime. My dignity won't allow it.'

He struggled to get up. But found that difficult as a sharp pain ran through his sides.

Suddenly, he heard the system's sweet and pleasant voice.

«Reporting to Host, Host had activated the conditions for «God's Pity».»

And a notification window appeared in front of him.

«God's Pity»

Requirement :

• Host is in pain

• Stress level is very high

• On the verge of a nervous breakdown

Description: A situation when Host has started to lose his sanity. And it is assumed that any further degradation in Host's circumstances could lead to a nervous breakdown.

P.S. by God: Is this even needed? If our descendants need something like this, I won't even dare to call him my junior.

Is he even capable of defeating the demons? He should just drop dead already.

Pity : • 100 % increase in efficiency of Calm Mind for next 24 hrs (20% permanent increase)

• 1000 FP

• 1 ★ Recovery Pill

Seeing the notification, the tears, which he had been holding back, slid out of his eyes.

'It's not that bad, right?'

'Do I look like a person who is on the verge of a nervous breakdown?'

'God Damn it!'

'Everything has a limit, and today, you have crossed that limit Old Geezer.'

He gritted his teeth and ignored the pain, slowly getting back up on his feet.

'I don't know anything about the Demon shit. But, if you can hear me, remember one thing.'



A minute later...

Max finally had calmed down and was still lying in the hallway.

'System, get me the recovery pill.'

Suddenly, a red pill appeared out of thin air and hovered in front of Max.

Taking the pill in his hand, he directly swallowed it.

After a while, he felt a warmth wash over his body and the pain subsided until it eventually disappeared.

Getting up, Max walked towards his classroom.

While walking, one thing kept revolving in his mind.

It was only the first day and so much has happened to him. If things kept on going that way, he would have a painful Academy life.

Right now, he could only imagine two things that could improve his situation.

First, get out of the dorm and stay away from them.

Second, become strong enough to protect himself.

First one seemed possible to some extent, but his conscience won't let him do that. After all, he didn't find those guys troublesome at all.

While the second one seemed a bit impossible. He only earned a mere 25 FP per day.

Max kept thinking the entire way.

But as he entered the classroom, he felt a fierce gaze on him.

Turning towards his left, he found the two beautiful girls whom he just met, sitting on the very first row of the class.

He didn't expect to have another meetup this soon.

Even though he wanted to apologize to the blonde hair girl, he threw the idea out of his mind, feeling the intense gaze of the girl next to her.

She was on the list of tyrants, too. It's better to stay away from them.

So, avoiding any eye contact, he pretended not to notice them and walked towards the corner seat in the back.

Looking at the guy, Elly couldn't help but feel something very familiar in him.

Especially those look in his eyes....

She had seen them somewhere, but she couldn't seem to remember it.



She was pulled out of her thoughts by Lisa's voice.

"Are you okay, you have been behaving very oddly since that pervert attacked your purity." She spoke with concern.

"I am fine, it's just that I had something on my mind." Elly shook her head before starting at her, "Besides, you're doing it on purpose aren't you."

"What are you talking about?" Lisa asked, with innocent and puppy eyes.

"I know you very well, that 'attack on my purity' thing. You don't need to put it like that and it was an accident so forget it already..."

"Why? Let me do it a few more times...'' Lisa requested with a wink.

"You bring that up one more time, and I will let Uncle know all your secrets."

"No, please don't tell my Dad, I won't repeat it." Lisa spoke in a pleading tone while holding her ears.

Taking his seat, Max once again lost himself in his thoughts of what to do when he decided of asking the System for help.

'System, how can I earn FP faster, in order to level up?'

«Reporting to Host, Host can earn FP through meditation, Daily Quest, Mission Quest and Request Quest and also by battles. All these things affect the Host, which means they affect the Host's Flow line»

'I get it, but what is a Request Quest?'

«Reporting to Host, it is a Quest requested by a particular person and Host has the choice to accept or reject it»

'One more thing, if you already knew all about it, why didn't you inform me about it earlier?'

«Reporting to Host, the suggestion system is currently off»

'Switch On it, right now!' Max ordered in frustration.

«Suggestion: From System's observation, it is suggested that Host switches his Gene ability status»

«Gene Abilities»

Enhanced Hearing - On [On/Auto/Off]

'Damn the creator!'

Seeing the notification, a curse slipped out of his mouth.

He turned the ability to Auto and then he could control that.

He felt happiness swell from the bottom of his heart.

It looked like he was getting rewarded for his sufferings.


After a while of thinking, Max finally found a way to get strong, faster.

It was Orena, a place filled with beasts and mana treasures.

And Arcane wasn't that far from the Border to begin with.

The only problem was normal people weren't allowed to cross the border.

The only thing he could do then was to become a mercenary.

It would provide him with both Quests and approval of travelling into Orena.

'Hahaha!!! I am a genius.'

'System, show me my status.'

Noticing the (1/9) over my skills, Max asked the system about it.

«Reporting to Host, Host can only have 9 of each type of skill. If Host wants to make another skill, Host would have to delete an old skill for it. Any achievements in the deleted skill would be lost forever»

Seeing the system's notification, he didn't feel that much of a shock this time.

Maybe it was due to the 100% increase in his skill «Calm Mind» or it was due to lack of any kind of expectations from it.

Closing the notification, Max decided to put 2000 FP into his levelling bar.

«Host has gained a level»

Seeing the notification, a smile stretched out on his face.
