|Chapter 19||Chapter 21|
Professor Heil questions Rood about the rumors going around the school which says that he jumped from the second story and chased Lidusis around the school. Rood denied it all. Heil dismisses the rumors saying that it would be impossible with Rood's supposed chronic illness and warns him against getting in trouble with a Hereis again, claiming that it would negatively impact his school life.
Dio confronts Rood about the rumors and they both visit Lidusis in the nurse's office only to find that he has ran off just before they arrived. Rood and Dio go to the storage room and find Lidusis hiding behind the boxes. Rood attempts to get Lidusis to tell him why he is being bullied but Lidusis tells him that it is none of his concern and to leave him alone, stating that he is indeed a monster.
Chevel's right-hand man, Anna, presents information about Rood. Chevel then decides that he will pay Rood back. Black mana enters Chevel's magic crystal undetected while a hidden shadowy figure watches. On a balcony with Princess Yutiarien and Rom, Tessiana feels something ominous.
