Roy says with a smirk, "Two more days till 'Paradise of Madagascar'."
Takagi turns back and gives an evil smile at Roy.
"Paradise of Madagascar! The place where it will all begin. The start of our journey!" Takagi says with a confident smile.
Roy walks and sits beside Takagi and says, "What Do you think Takagi? Are we strong enough to start our journey?"
Takagi stands up, puts his hand on his pocket, and says "I Don't know about you, but I am definitely strong enough to start the journey." while going back inside the house.
Takagi and Roy are sitting on chairs. Atsushi enters the room and sits in front of them.
"So, why did you call us here?" Takagi asks politely
Roy also nods with Takagi's question.
"Hmmm...Tomorrow morning is the day. Let me tell you guys one more time, I am Atsushi Sho, I served the world government as a dog for almost 50 years of my life and retired with the rank of General and a respectful title 'Monster of the Mist'."
"Why are saying this again?" Roy asks with a boring look
"To remind you that hard work always pays off." Atsushi says.
Atsushi looks at Roy and says, "Your grandfather, Soichiro Yagami was also a great man, he was respected as someone great. So, you guys have to work hard and make us proud. And also make your name known as the strongest! One more thing, you guys will be 'Rookies' if you guys pass the test."
"Rookies?" Both Takagi and Roy say.
"If anyone joins the 'Knights', they start off as Rookies" Atsushi explains to both of them.
"What's after Rookie?" Roy asks.
"After Rookie is Veteran, then Sargent, Specialist, Chief Sargent, General, Divine Commander, and finally 'The Supreme King'!" Atsushi replies.
"The Supreme King!" Takagi says.
"Supposedly, The strongest person alive! The one who rules the 'world'!" Roy says.
Roy is in his room, laying on the bed.
'Tomorrow, the beginning of my journey. I have to say goodbye to gramps and Saika.' Roy thinks inwardly with a sad expression while looking at the ceiling. 'I should sleep now, I have to wake up early in the morning.' Roy thinks while closing his eyes.
After a few minutes, he falls asleep. But for some unknown reason, he wakes up in his training space.
'Where am I? How did I get here?' Roy is floating in the air inside his subconscious training space. Roy comes down and lands on the ground that is covered with black water. 'Why do I keep coming here?' Roy questions himself.
"It's that thing again." Roy thinks out loud. Roy starts walking towards that 'thing'.
When he gets close, he sees a girl laying on the ground. Around her is a magic circle, which seems like a confining magic circle.
Roy is standing there with his eyes wide open.
The girl that was in front of Roy laying on the ground is beautiful! She looks like an angel. Roy is just staring at that girl.
He tries to get even closer to that girl but when he tries to get closer something electrocutes his whole body.
"Ouchh! What was that?" Roy exclaims.
Suddenly the girl opens her eyes. Roy's head starts to hurt again.
"Ughh. This again?!" Roy screams out in pain.
'Hmm? What is this wicked aura?!' Atsushi says in a strident voice.
He senses some kind of evil aura coming from the direction of Roy's room. So, he goes to Roy's room to check what is emitting this aura.
"Roy, I am coming in."
Atsushi opens the door and sees Roy sitting on his bed.
"Wh-what's wrong gramps?" Roy says in a wobbly voice. Roy's whole body was covered in sweat and he was shaking uncontrollably.
"Nothing." Atsushi says and thinks to himself, 'Did I just imagine it?'
Atsushi turns around and says before leaving, "Sleep, it's already late. You have to wake up early tomorrow."
"Okay." Roy says.
The next morning,
"Gramps, take care of yourself." Takagi says.
"You don't have to tell me that. Just go now." Atushi says and continues while looking at Roy, "Brat, you are not gonna say anything?"
"Hmm? Why?" Roy says.
"BRAT!" Atsushi yells.
"Grandpa, leave him be. I am sure he is sad about leaving." Saika says with a brittle voice.
"No, I am not." Roy says.
She hugs him tightly and says, "You're not sad about leaving me behind?"
"Kinda, I will miss your cooking tho." Roy says. Roy blushes a little when he feels Saika's F-cup boobs touching his chest.
Saika tightens her hug and says, "I am gonna miss you."
'Whoa! There are touching me!' Roy thinks inwardly.
"Yeah, I am gonna miss you too." Roys says.
Saika's eyes widen in shock. She releases the hug and stares at Roy's face.
"We are off th-" Roy is going to say something but he gets interrupted when something unexpected happens.
Saika kisses Roy and says, "Please be safe." with a fruity voice.
Roy's cheek redden. He nods and turns around.
"W-we are going then." Roy says in a flushed state.
Roy then starts walking as fast as he can as if he wants to escape reality.
Takagi and Atsushi just watch the whole scene with their mouths wide open.
"Wh-w-what...just happened...?" Atsushi says in a wheezy voice.
"I-I don't kn-know..." Takagi says.
Roy and Takagi are walking.
Because of what happened earlier both of them are quiet.
'This is so awkward!' Roy thinks inwardly. 'Sa-Saika kissed me.' Roy blushes after remembering the scene in his head.
Roy tries to break the awkwardness between them. "S-so, do you think you are gonna pass the exam?"
Takagi looks at Roy with emotionless eyes as if he wants to kill Roy. But he controls himself and says, "Of course. You better hope that you don't face me in a match in the exam. Because if you do I 'will' kill you!"
"W-why?" Roy gulps.
"Why? You are asking why? YOU JUST KISSED MY FUCKING SISTER RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME AND YOU ARE ASKING WHY?!"
"But, I d-didn't kiss her." Roy says in a low tone.
Takagi just glares at Roy.
After that Roy and Takagi just keep on walking without saying a word to each other.
Suddenly they hear a voice from behind.
"Hey, wait for me Takagi"
"Oh hey, Kento!" Takagi says
A boy runs up to them. He has blue eyes like the ocean. His hair is also blue, he is wearing a teal-colored shirt, black pants, and his hands are wrapped in white bandages.
Takagi and Kento start talking to each other.
They just ignore Roy as if he isn't even there.
After walking for a few minutes they arrive in front of a carriage. The carriage is medium-sized. But big enough to fit four people. The carriage is run by two horses.
"Let's get in!" Kento says
