|Chapter 28||Chapter 30|
As Rood lies in bed reflecting on his progress, a shadowy figure enters the room and stands above Lidusis' sleeping figure saying that "it's not far off" and that he should "surrender and despair". Rood successfully traps the figure with his blanket. However, it dissipates into black smoke and vanishes.
The next morning, two girls awkwardly greet Lidusis and quickly walks past him. Rood catches up with Lidusis and asks him about the previous night but Lidusis is not even aware that anything had happened. As Rood internally debates about what he should do about it, he stops walking. Lidusis stops and wait as well. Rood then tease him for running away the day before.
An Idun reports to Chevel that Lidusis' classmates are no longer bullying him and Manon apologizes. Chevel tells Manon that Professor Heil asked him to go along with the Iduns for their training exercise. This is where he plans to pay Rood back. Manon attempts to protest, saying that Rood is not normal but Chevel does not listen.
Elsewhere, Professor Kan questions Professor Heil about why they are bringing Hereis to the Idun training exercise, especially Chevel. Professor Heil says that Chevel is necessary for the training. Linus, hiding nearby, overhears everything.
