Akhidra , a few moments ago, after the english period’s ending bell, says to Fushi, “Lovecraft is saying how horrifying loneliness can be and yet how soothing it could be to the person in ‘The Outsider’.”

Fushi agreeing but counters, “yeah, and yet he focuses and emphasising shift to the feeling of discovering who the protagonist is in the latter part. The madness and freedom that comes with it is proof itself.”

Anna, staring at both of them, thinks to herself, ‘oh, how these two have grown over the years, and yet be childish enough to discuss what was more important to portray for H.P. Lovecraft.’

Anna said, “well, we could always try either Akhidra or someone else who doesn’t have a manifest to get a manifest where they could bring back the dead. What do you say?”

Kirit enters the class through the front doors, none from the trio takes note of him coming in and forming a small magic circle in his hand.

Akhidra and Fushi both dead-eye looked at Anna and said in unison, “No.”

Akhidra, looking back at Fushi picking his own notebook from his desk and rolling it, went on, “that’s what H.P. Lovecraft wants. I am telling you one of his wishes before dying must have been to become one of these eldritch horrors.”

Fushi continued Akhidra’s train of thought, “yeah, have you paid attention to the details he gives to these eldritch monsters he has written. Let’s just take the note of how the monster in ‘The Outsider’ reacts. Maddening and joyful. I mean what?! It’s cool and horrifying, and now I am defining another eldritch monster.” Fushi drops his head sighing.

Akhidra moving back to his earlier conversation, and says, “anyway, that madness in the later part of the story and freedom is also a clear cut description of loneliness. Another form it can take, I mean would you or anyone approach a madman who is happily running wild in the woods? No, mostly your instinct will tell you to run. Leaving the madman alone.”

Fushi counters with, “yeah, obviously. What if he is mad because he has a manifest? Leave and not be killed. Easy. But leave an eldritch monster alone? Yeah, that monster will tear apart your normal life even if it’s very far away.”

Akhidra struck his head softly with his notebook as the notebook unfurled into it’s regular rectangular shaped over the top of his head. He went on, “how’s that connected to ‘The Outsider’?”

Fushi grimaced and said, “uh, you two diverted me. As I said, the self discovery itself can be frightening, it makes you question the way the world works and is. Wait, huh? Akhi! Your notebook’s on fire!”

Akhidra took his notebook off his head and both Fushi and Akhidra stared at the small flame that has taken root on the cover of the notebook. Both of them exchanged glances with each other, staring blankly.

Then Akhidra dropped his notebook down between Fushi and his benches and Fushi made a construct using his manifest to tightly cover the notebook, snuffing out the air while the construct pressed itself hard against the notebook.

Fanakar while dropping his bag again on the familiar desk, said, “oh, are we having a bonfire? Huh, Akhidra?”

Akhidra replied, “maybe sir, but I wasn’t told that my notebook will the fuel for it.”

Fanakar said, “fair enough. Is your notebook still in good shape? Did it have any notes?”

Akhidra said, “no, sir. It was an empty notebook I assigned to the English subject for this standard, and it is just burned little. So I guess I could still sell it for recycling.”Akhidra turned his head to front of the class, averting his eyes from his notebook.

Fushi still staring at the notebook. He was counting how many seconds it took for his construct to snuff out the small flame. He counted upto 6.

Fushi said to himself, “not good enough.”

Akhidra picks up his notebook, while Fushi dismisses his construct.

Fanakar says, “this is your first manifest mathematics class for this standard. So I will start off with a simple basics on this and why it is taught separately just like the subject ‘Manifest Theory’, I will also go into why you should more focus in your mathematics class than in this class as that class works as your bedrock for this class.”

He further went on, “don’t worry, even if you get bad grades,” seeing some of the troubled expressions he saw, “the important part for both mathematics and it’s child ‘Manifest mathematics’, the only thing that is important is you are able to follow what you are being taught. This is extended here, and for this field it becomes apparently more important that you are able to implement it what you are able to follow.”

Kirit clicks his tongue loudly. Fanakar looks at him, and says, “so be it, Kirit, tell me where can we implement manifest mathematics?”

Kirit turned his head around from his staring out the window, and says, “we use it when we are using our manifest or are trying to discern an opponent’s manifest, we can also use it to understand magic but error exist in that respect.”

He turned his head back to stare outside to the sky and the clouds.

Fanakar said, “half-correct, Kirit. And Kirit pay attention to this class, it will come in handy no matter what.”

Kirit turns his head back slowly and looks at his class teacher and this subject’s teacher Fanakar Lakshit.

Fanakar Lakshit went along with his class and further went on, “good. Now, as Kirit said we use it with manifest and when we are discerning someone else’s manifest, not just an opponent. So Akhidra, what else can be added to this?”

Akhidra says, “manifest mathematics can easily be applied and used with manifests that are classified as regular, while with irregular it fails and cannot be applied.”

Fanakar said, “again missed out some points.” He stretched his arms upwards to stretch himself.

“Ok, so manifest mathematics is the mathematics that is formed using the known laws of mathematics and the laws of the specific manifest being used, discerned and studied. Whenever we use mathematics with respect to manifests, mathematics takes the passenger seat and manifest and it’s laws take the driver seat. Several times you will find that the manifest does follow whatever non-sense mathematics spews out at manifest and follows it as closely possible or does something different but relevant enough. But there are times when mathematics is saying this is completely not possible and manifest says, ‘nuh-uh’, and just does whatever it wants to and it succeeds.”

Everybody looked at Fanakar with interest. Fanakar says, “so everybody understood that? Now got some clearance in how and why manifest mathematics is important? And why you should focus more on learning the manifest itself than the mathematics you or anyone came up with for one.”

Everybody nodded.

Fanakar said, “remember this, regular and irregular manifest both follow and apply mathematics to some extent to themselves in any case, but only with regular manifest will it be followed most notably.”

Fanakar then said, “now, let’s begin class and talk about manifest classification a bit.”
