The Incubus System Chapter 48. Two Opposite Sides Of A Coin
My eyes opened slowly, the view of my room’s ceiling and the morning sunlight that penetrated the curtains became clearer in my sight. Today, I woke up with a slightly different state than usual, my heart was beating fast and … my cock was tense. I don’t remember how long it has been since the last time I woke up like this.
I tried to get up to check the clock and ignore my morning wood, but something heavy and warm pressed against my body. My eyes glanced at Celia who was still sleeping comfortably beside me. Her sweet and innocent face is right in front of mine. My heart was beating harder and harder as I could feel her soft breast pressing against mine, her warmth and scent tickling my nose. My face started to turn red as my mind began to remember what we did two days ago.
‘Dammit, what am I thinking?’ I tried to get up, avoiding the situation turning out of hand for me.
As I just slightly moved, she snuggled closer to me.
“Mmmpp …” A soft moan came out of her mouth. Her hands hugged me tighter, as if not letting me go anywhere before she woke up.
I swallowed hard as my mind started to run wild. Well, my body is hot now, we are in same blanket and she only wears her thin sleepwear, moreover, Celia never wears a bra while sleeping. So … There’s no way I can keep my mind calm especially after what we did two days ago, I’m not a saint.
Just as that thought crossed my head, my gaze was shifted on the clock.
“Oh shit!” I screamed as I jumped out of the bed in a panic, even Celia woke up in surprise because of me.
“Brother, what’s wrong?” Celia asked in confusion. Her eyes that were still half open stared at me.
“I have a class at 09.00 AM!” I said as I ran to the bathroom.
“09.00 AM?” She turned to the clock.
“You’re late!” she screamed. Of course, she thought that way because it took me almost half an hour to get to my college by train.
“Not yet!” I shouted. My hand closed the bathroom door.
It was the fastest shower I’ve ever had. My hand grabbed the towel, put it on around my waist and ran back to my room. I took my clothes from the wardrobe in panic and took off my towel.
“Kyaaaa —-! Brother, what are you doing?!” screamed Celia as she turned around and covered her blushing face. I know she’s still here to make up my bed but I don’t care. My time is tight, after all, didn’t she already see all of it two days ago?
“This is my room! Of course, I’m changing here.” My hands continued to move, putting in my t-shirt and jeans as quickly as I could. My eyes glanced at the clock.
My time is running out …
I grabbed my bag.
“I’ll take my leave!” My feet moved down the stairs, put on my shoes and got out. I stepped into my backyard, my eyes swept around me, making sure no one else was around before I reached out and imagined the west corner of my college yard.
[Set your destination.]
‘West corner of Diamond College’s courtyard.’
[The destination has been set.]
A portal that resembled a small black hole opened in front of me.
[The portal has opened! ]
Quickly, my feet stepped into the portal. Darkness engulfed me. As soon as I stepped into the light, I took my head out of the portal and looked around, making sure no one was around, also making sure I wasn’t in the wrong place.
I just stepped my feet out of the portal after everything was safe.
[The portal has closed! ]
Without wasting time anymore, I ran towards my classroom and opened the door.
‘Yeah! Just in time! My decision to raise my portal skills was right! ‘
I entered the classroom and took a seat, my eyes looked around the quiet room even though the class was almost starting, even Larry had not come yet. Today is actually just a replacement class because my lecturer couldn’t come last Monday, the reason is he has an urgent matter to take care of, but based on his last post on his PaceBook I know he was hanging out with his girlfriend. I don’t know what he thought by trying to deceive the students but still uploaded his photo on social media.
My gaze fixed on one of my classmates, a second later some information appeared above her head as my vision skill activated automatically.
[Name: Sophia Crowheart]
I realized this since yesterday when Celia surprised me and I’ve also checked this skill doesn’t reduce my DP at all. My gaze shifted from a classmate to another, checking their status one by one as I waited for my lecturer. It’s quite interesting because even though their level is between level 1 or 2, their HP and MP are different. But based on gender, men have more HP than women while women have more MP than men.
Minutes passed and my class was getting crowded but my lecturer had not came even though the time had already shown 9:17 AM.
A second later, a rushed footsteps sound could be heard from outside followed by a loud door opening sound.
“I’m here, sir!” shouted Larry in panic. His breath was panting, his hair and clothes were messy.
I covered my face in embarrassment, while the others laughed at him.
“Dammit! I thought I was late!” he cursed when he realized our lecturer wasn’t here yet. His feet stepped into the classroom and took a seat next to me.
His smelly body odour mixed with the sweat smell immediately pierced my nose.
“You didn’t shower, did you?!” I scolded. My hand reflexively covered my nose.
“I just woke up at 8:30 AM. Do you think I have time to shower?” he grumbled with an annoyed face. From his face, I bet he didn’t even have time to brush his teeth or wash it.
Shortly after that, his status was seen above his head.
[Name: Larry Grandroar]
As soon as I saw his unusual level and status, I immediately checked him with my observation skill.
[Name: Larry Grandroar] [Age: 19]
[Level 11] [Race: Human]
[HP: 213/213] [MP: 91/91]
[Skills: Holy Chain lv 5, Mana Strike lv 5]
[Love meter: 0/10]
[Weakness: Chest, Neck, Head, Armpits]
[Talent: Strong Body (Pain endurance and has a better defence rate than other races.)]
[Profession: Demon Hunter, College Student.]
‘As I thought …’ I was no longer surprised by it. I just found out that my late father was a demon hunter yesterday even though we lived together for many years, how do I know other people?
Despite the fact that this means he is my enemy but I’m happy because it means he is willing to take bigger responsibility now. This is better than his aimless life like before, I hope he can act more mature with this.
My attention was focused on his weakness.
‘Armpits?’ I remember yesterday Emma also had a weakness point on her ears and I remember Larry couldn’t endure being tickled in his armpits.
‘That last point of weakness … Does it mean the most sensitive part of their bodies?’
Larry waved his hand at me, interrupting my thoughts.
“Why do you look at me like that?” he said with a disgusted expression. The look in his eyes was similar to a high schooler girl staring at a creep.
“Nothing.” I shifted my gaze forward before he misunderstood me.
“How about your last night’s hunting results?” Since I already knew he was a demon hunter, so I’m sure what he meant by hunting monsters every night is he patrolled like Emma. Honestly, I thought he’s just playing a video game when he says it because Larry is a heavy gamer. He barely graduated due to playing too many video games when he was in junior high school.
A proud smile appeared on his face, making him look like a creep that had just found his prey. Now I’m the one who looking at him with a disgust expression.
“Of course I won again! You know that annoying person I told you yesterday? His hunting results were 3! And do you want to know mine? 9! Wahahaha!”
“Larry! You’re too loud!” complained the others.
Larry raised his hand to apologise.
“Ah, sorry. My bad.” He returned his gaze at me.
“You should see his face … pfftt — pppfftttt!” he held back his laughter.
“Did you meet him yesterday?” I asked. I’m not sure he could say that to me, it looks like he blurted out without second thought.
As expected, his face turned panicked.
“I mean his character’s face,” he reasoned.
“Is a game character can show expression now?” I teased.
His face looked even more panicked.
“I mean — his voice. Yes, his voice!” he tried to convince me.
“Oh, okay. Then?” I asked him to continue his story.
“Last night he and his friend were called before my guild leader. It looks like something important has happened.” Suddenly his face turned serious.
I frowned in curiosity as a guess crossed my mind, but instead of asking it outright, I asked something else that could be a hint for me.
He shrugged, indicating he didn’t know.
“What I know, last night he brought some guild members to help his friend slaughter some monsters but somehow he came back empty-handed.”
From his words, I think I knew who the annoying person he was referring to. I couldn’t really blame Larry for this, because Theo’s attitude was indeed annoying.
“Just be careful, okay?” I said suddenly.
He looked surprised at my words since usually, I would nag him like an old man if he rambled about games.
“What is wrong with you?” he asked in confusion.
“I’m tired of nagging you like an old man. The most important thing is you have to take care of your health.” Actually what I mean is he has to take care of himself because there will be more demons hanging around after this, but I can’t say it openly.
“Take it easy!” He puffed out his chest and showed his proud face again.
“Nothing can beat me!” he said confidently.
Just as the words left his mouth, an announcement was heard.
* Ting Tong *
“Attention, please! Today’s management class is cancelled and will be replaced next week.”
“Haaaahhh ???” The students’ disappointed voice echoed throughout the room like an orchestra. Soon my classmates left the class with annoyed faces, including Larry and me.
“What are you going to do now?” asked Larry as he walked beside me.
“I’m going to the cafeteria to grab some food. Do you want to come?” I offered him.
“Okay!” He clamped my shoulder with one hand and pulled me closer. While I quickly covered my nose in reflex.
“Larry Grandroar’s next mission is accompany Ethan to the cafeteria!” he said excitedly.
Haaa… It looks like I was wrong. He’s still acting like a kid.
