When Filina looked up, Leon opened his mouth with a faint smile on his lips.


“Sir Filina can choose first.”


Filina frowned and asked Leon.


“Was Sir Leon thinking of choosing the wooden sword?”




His answer flowed out without any hesitation.


“I prefer the bow.”


Filina said as she looked at Leon.
Black eyes stared at her quietly.


She smiled slightly and parted her lips.


“I know you’re trying to be considerate of me on purpose, but I’ll pretend I don’t know and take the sword.”


Filina reached out and grabbed the wooden sword.
Then Leon naturally took the large bow and arrows.


Other teams were also struggling to get their hands on the weapons they wanted.
Some even fought with each other.


Filina, who was staring at them indifferently, turned her head to the gaze she suddenly felt.


Henry was looking at her with a distorted expression on his face.
It was a face with some dissatisfaction.


Filina wrinkled her brow and asked bluntly.


“Why do you look at me like that?”


At the sound of her voice, the eyes of Bessie and Leon also turned to him.


Henry slightly shifted his eyes that were looking at Filina to the side and said in a low voice.


“…it’s nothing.”


However, Filina turned her gaze away as if it was insignificant.
Then Henry’s gaze followed again.


Contrary to the answer he had said, his expression was a slightly absurd one.


Leon was staring intently at the two of them.


At that moment, Carmen, who was watching the cadets in front, opened his mouth.


“Everyone, please pay attention.
I will tell you about this assignment.”


All the cadets, who were frantically moving, stopped and looked at Carmen.


“Your task is to bring the fruit of hallucinations in the Wind Forest.
Each team member must bring a total of four, one for each, to be considered passing the training.”


Speaking of the Wind Forest, it was the place where the cadets gathered for horseback riding training.


It was not far from the training hall.


“Please note that teams that fail to complete the task will remain and make up for it.
Also, don’t touch other fruits in the Wind Forest.
What you need to bring is a blue fruit with a round shape.
Do not confuse it with anything else.”


Carmen flew a little bird over his head.
Yellow feathers reflected in the sunlight and shone beautifully.


“This very friend is following you and will be watching this training.
Do your best to accomplish the task.
Among you, we will select the knights who performed the best role and reflect them in the team score.”


In other words, it didn’t matter how fast the task was performed.
In other words, it was a team collaboration.


He wanted to check how well the members in each team cooperate with each other.


“A knight should never panic no matter what happens.
Always be alert and face reality.
When you go out on the field, sometimes you have to fight as a team like this.”


At Carmen’s voice, all the cadets listened with serious faces.


“Even if you are not officially recognized as a knight, you should always train as if you were in the real world.
Don’t put limits on your abilities.”


With his words, the cadets began to move quickly.


Filina and Bessie also moved to the back of the training hall.
Leon and Henry followed them slowly.


Shortly thereafter, the entrance to horseback riding training was found.
Beyond that, the Wind Forest stretched out thickly.
The other teams hurried to find the fruits of hallucinations quickly.
They ran in the forest with a burning desire to win.


The little bird that was supposed to follow the cadets disappeared somewhere.


“This is the first time I have personally entered the Wind Forest.
I never thought I would be training here.”


Bessie looked around as she spoke.


Most of the training for cadets took place inside the school, so she never thought that there would be such a large forest behind the training hall.


Even when they did horseback riding here, they did not go into the forest, but used the wide open space at the entrance.


Because of this, Filina also felt very unfamiliar with this moment.


“Still, I was frustrated because I was only at school, but coming out here makes me feel a little more relieved.”


At Filina’s words, Bessie nodded and smiled.


“I wasn’t the only one who thought so, right?”


Bessie turned her head and asked Leon.


“How about Sir Leon? Aren’t you tired of being confined to school all this time?”


When Bessie spoke to him with a friendly face, Leon nodded and replied plainly.


“I was frustrated too, but it seems to be getting a little better.”


Leon said so and glanced at Filina.
Her rosy hair, tied high, shone brilliantly in the sunlight.


Indeed, it was such a beautiful color that he wondered if there would be anyone who would look better with a red color as much as Filina.


On the other hand, Bessie smiled quietly and looked at Henry who was next to Leon.
Then she turned her gaze and whispered to Filina.


“Sir Debussy, ask Sir Argeny how the weather is.”




Filina frowned and looked back at Bessie.


At her reaction, Leon and Henry, who were walking at a distance behind them, looked at Filina.
Bessie spoke again in a low voice in her ear.


“It’s cooperative training.
It’s good to get to know each other.
I spoke to Sir Leon first, so this time Sir Filina should ask Sir Argeny.”


Then Bessie asked with a puzzled face as if she had remembered something.


“Oh, didn’t Sir Filina and Sir Argeny know each other?”


Her voice rang louder than expected.


Turning into the narrow path, Henry paused slightly and turned his head to scan the grass indifferently.


“I don’t know….”


As Filina frowned and mumbled her words, Bessie spoke with a puzzled look.


“Before, Sir Argeny came up to Sir Filina and talked to you directly, didn’t he? He even asked me to leave first… ”


Filina, who couldn’t pretend she didn’t know anymore, sighed and said.


“We’re not that close.”


“Then, let’s take this opportunity to get to know each other!”


Bessie smiled brightly with a friendly face and tapped Filina’s shoulder.


“You know that team members’ cooperation is the most important thing in this training, right? No one knows where the vice commander’s bird will be.
It is said that if we make it suspicious, it will also affect the score of each team, so let’s try.”


Bessie glanced back and spoke quietly to Filina so that Henry and Leon could not hear.


“According to the seniors’ records so far, the 1st Order doesn’t score well in cooperative training.
So this time, we have to get more points than the 1st Order.”


Bessie looked at Filina with a face full of enthusiasm.
At the same time she gestured her chin towards Henry.


Filina looked at Henry with a completely unwilling face.


Henry was still looking around with a bored face.
Filina, who had glanced at Henry, whispered to Bessie with her lips twisted.


“It would have been better for me to ask Sir Leon.”


Sir Leon is a commoner like me.
Sir Argeny is a nobleman.”


The calculations in Bessie’s mind had already been completed.


It seemed that the decision was made under the judgment that Filina would be able to get to know Henry more quickly as she was noble as well.


But Filina still muttered with a dissatisfied face.


“Still, it’s a cooperative training, so you can’t judge people by their origins.”


Even as she said it, her conscience was stabbed.
The person who was reluctant to talk was Filina herself.


“There are stages in relationships, right? First of all, we try to get to know the people we can get to know, and then we naturally get to know each other through training.”


Bessie raised her chin and opened her mouth with a know- it- all face.


Filina had nothing more to say, so she had no choice but to quietly nod her head.


Bessie poked her in the side and said.


“Speak to Sir Argeny.”


Bessie looked at Filina with twinkling eyes.
It showed great determination that this was just business.


Filina sighed and looked at Henry.


“….Hey, Sir Argeny.”


Henry’s purple eyes, which were looking around, turned to look at Filina when he heard her voice.


Filina asked with a slight smile.


“Isn’t it a nice day?”


Henry’s face, who was looking at her quietly, was slightly distorted.
He said to Filina.


“It doesn’t look like a very good day to me.”


As Henry said, the further into the forest, the darker the sky.
However, with Bessie’s pressure, Filina didn’t look at her surroundings before she asked Henry.


Filina, somewhat embarrassed, bit her lips and exhaled in annoyance.


“I asked because it was nice earlier.” (Filina)


“Is that so? But it’s bad weather right now, so I’m not sure how to respond.” (Henry)


“Do you really have to say something like that to embarrass people? Can’t you just roughly agree?” (Filina)


Filina became angry and stopped walking and turned to look at him.


Then Henry, who had been staring at her quietly, answered, raising the corners of his lips slightly.


“Yes, the weather is very sunny.
Sir Debussy.” 


The sarcastic voice was clear.
As if it was late at night because the thick trees now covered the sky.


The surroundings were dark and dreary.


As Filina glared at him, Bessie hurriedly grabbed her and said:


“No, why are you fighting?”


When Bessie forcibly dragged Filina, she couldn’t help but swear inwardly at Henry for a long time.


Henry’s face, following Filina, was not very good either.
Leon, who looked at them alternately, raised his eyes sharply at the sound of the wind blowing through the bushes.


Then, suddenly, something rushed over Filina’s head.


Leon hurriedly wrapped his arms around her face, and Henry quickly swung the wooden sword in his hand over the air.


Then a large bird with a strange shape fell to the ground.


“Ah, run away!”


At that moment, someone was running towards them and shouting.
A cold energy rushed through the quiet forest.


Numerous flocks of  birds were flying in from the thickets of darkness.
