Lilith landed on the ground and looked rather fearfully at the old man who had suddenly appeared.

To be able to break a saint-level magic with a punch, this person was no ordinary person even if he was only a low-level saint.

“So we meet again, little girl.”
“Again? Have we seen each other before?”

Lilith raked her brain but still couldn’t remember when she had seen this old man.

“It’s only normal for you to not remember me, little girl. After all, we’ve only met once. I was the old man who opened the door for you at St. Caroline square.

Realization dawned upon Lilith. There was indeed such a person in her memory.

“Oh, you are that old pe̲r̲v̲e̲r̲t̲.”
“………”

The old man’s hand that was stroking his beard shook, nearly tearing off a few strands.

“If I may ask, what’s your name, old pe̲r̲v̲e̲r̲t̲?”
“…Hoho, call me Elder White.”

Lilith nodded. The old man didn’t get angry even with such provocation, which meant he didn’t come with ill intentions. Since that was the case, Lilith turned her attention to Diana who was hiding behind him.

“Old Perv… Elder White, can you hand over that person behind you?”
“My apologies. Diana is my disciple, I cannot hand her over to you.”
“You are shielding her?”
“Not shielding, she will still be punished accordingly. My devious disciple has merely pulled a little prank. Little girl, you shouldn’t use a saint-level scroll to punish her.”

Elder White shook his head with pity, “Saint-level scrolls are so precious that it is not an exaggeration to describe them as priceless. How can it be used for a fight between you children?”

“That’s right! Although I pulled a little prank, I would have no objection if you were to challenge me to a fight! How could you use such a precious saint-level scroll? How prodigal! My heart goes out to your family for having such a prodigal child like you!”

Diana poked her head out from behind Elder White and reprimanded Lilith.

“Precious?”

Lilith smiled disdainfully. She ran her thumb over her storage ring and dozens of scrolls came floating out, each radiating more powerfully than the one that Elder White had just scattered.

“Sorry. Saint-level scrolls are not that precious to me.”

Elder White and Diana were both rendered speechless.

Elder White looked at the colorful scrolls that were floating beside Lilith, looking as though they were about to explode at any moment. His eyelids twitched. “L-Little girl, keep those things away right now before we continue. This old man is terrified from just looking at them.”

“Hmph!” With a wave of Lilith’s small hand, the scrolls were once again stored back into the ring. “What a scaredy-cat.”

Elder White was once again speechless.

Probably no one wouldn’t be afraid in the presence of dozens of saint-level scrolls.

“Ahem.” Elder White cleared his throat. “Little girl, your name is Lilith, right?”

“Yes, Lilith is indeed my name.”

“So you assumed the position of the disciplinary committee’s vice president just a few days after joining the academy. What a commendable youngster you are. I still needed someone to take care of me when I was your age.”

“I see. To be honest, I bought this position from Elder Mord.”

“……”

The corners of Elder White’s mouth twitched slightly. “Elder Mord has always been fair and just. How could he possibly be bribed? In any case, I’m certain that you are an exceptional individual since you’re personally recommended by Professor Flint, who is always extremely serious and strict in his studies.”

“Oh, that. Although Professor Flint didn’t dare say it, I knew he pushed me here because I was too slow in my studies and he could no longer stand me.”

“……”

*******, I can’t continue this conversation!

Lilith crossed her arms in front of her chest and continued calmly, “Go on. Stop beating around the bush. What exactly do you want to say?”

Elder White rubbed his hands, acting like a bashful bride. “Actually… This old man has everything he wanted in his life except for one thing. I lack a successor. I’m getting old and I wish to pass my skills to someone. After all, I can’t possibly bring them with me into the coffin, can I?”

Diana poked Elder White’s waist from behind. “Master, don’t you have me?”

Elder White turned his head and shot her a resentful glare. “Shameless! If you could learn, do you think your master will still have to lower his pride like this?”

“Ugh…”

Diana lowered her head pathetically, like a puppy who just got its tail stepped on.

Lilith finally understood it. So they went through all these troubles just because he wanted to take her as his disciple?

In any case, her objective of joining an academy was to learn, so she wasn’t against the idea of gaining another master.

Moreover, since Elder White could break a saint-level magic with just a punch, his strength was definitely credible.

At least, he had the caliber to teach her.

“I have no objection to becoming your disciple, but…”

“But what…?” Elder White asked hopefully.

Lilith pointed to Diana who was hiding behind him. “She’s your disciple too, right?”

“That is correct. Diana could be considered my head disciple. Apart from being unable to learn my skills due to her constitution, she is definitely the best among all the students in this academy in every other aspect.”

“Best in the academy? That’s really impressive…” Lilith had a look of admiration on her face.

“You think so? If that’s the case, you should quickly accept my proposal. That way, Diana will be your senior martial sister.”

Elder White looked quite pleased. It would seem like his head disciple was finally at least somewhat useful in something.

Yet he completely didn’t notice that his somewhat useful head disciple was getting ready to flee because she already sensed something was wrong in Lilith’s words.

“But I don’t want Diana to be my senior martial sister.”

“Huh? What did you say?”

“I said… I’d rather destroy the world if Diana were to become my senior martial sister.”

“………”

“What were you thinking, Elder White? I was going to use a saint-level scroll on her, do you think I’d possibly like her?” Lilith spread her arms and said.

Elder White was stunned for a moment, then turned his head to glare at Diana who only managed to slip a dozen centimeters away.

“You hapless kid! How could you do something like that?!” He slapped Diana’s forehead.

“Didn’t you ask me to demoralize her?” Diana covered her forehead and said aggrievedly.

Elder White blew his beard and glared, “You still dare to talk back?”

He turned around and kicked Diana’s perky butt. “You still dare to talk back, knowing my violent temper?”

“I’m only telling the truth!”

Diana said tearfully as she scurried to the side, with one hand on her forehead and the other on her butt.

Lilith’s mood greatly improved upon seeing that.

“Well, it’s not like it’s impossible for me to inherit your mantle.”

“R-Really…?”

Elder White’s eyes lit up. He rushed over and grabbed Lilith’s hands, like an old pe̲r̲v̲e̲r̲t̲e̲d̲ pedophile.

“O-Of… course.”

“Then that’s good. Just tell me what you want. I’ll do anything, even if you want me to expel that vile disciple of mine.”

“Master!! Are the decades of our relationship that insignificant to you?!” Diana asked angrily.

Elder White turned a deaf ear to her and looked at Lilith with hope in his eyes.

“You don’t have to expel Diana, but I have a question.”

Elder White was slightly taken aback. He didn’t expect the request to be that simple, so he immediately agreed. “As long as it’s something I know, I’ll tell you. If it’s something I don’t know, then I’ll find out the answer for you even if it means I have to die.”

“Haha, you don’t have to do that. My question is very simple.”

Lilith smiled strangely.

“Elder White… do you have a master?”
