I think this has been building for a while.
Whats wrong? Such a tired looking expression.
Its almost graduation. Theres times when I get lost in my own thought.
Hoh? You feel sad parting with your friends?
I wont deny that. Compared to before, I have a lot more fun.
Hm. Good, good.
But With regrets, I cant graduate happy.
Regrets, you say?
Huh, whats wrong?
Vayne, I challenge you to a duel.
The date, tomorrow after class. The place, here Got it!?
Anyway, I was pretty surprised.
What was that about?
I new he was calm for a reason Interesting! Indeed the man I saw!
His actions are too reckless. Its your bad influence, I bet.
What are you going to do?
What am I supposed to do? What do you think, Flay?
Dont ask me every single time! If youre a man, decide on your own!
Youre just surprised it came so sudden. But your hearts already decided.
Yeah Youre right.
Thats what I expected from you, Vayne! You are a man!
We ended leaving it up to Flay to decide what wed do.
Well, lets begin soon. Are you both ready?
Wait. How can we be ready if we dont even know what the duel is about.
Dont worry about that. As a witness, I prepared a worthy duel.
Itd be unfair if I chose, so reluctantly, I relied on him to decide.
Of all people, Flay
It seems Roxis partially lost his cool composure
You must win two matches for victory. The first task Make a Cure Jar!!
A Cure Jar ?
But thats so easy
No. Because it is simple, an alchemists skills are tested. What a deep task.
And the judges will be Jess, Nikki and Anna!
Understood. I accept this important duty.
Wow, thats a major responsibility there
Its odd, its almost like theres some cosmic force that tries to minimize how many of us are in a scene at any given time.
Things get too complicated when youre involved. So this time, just watch.
Aww, youre horrible Fine then, Muppy, lets go play over there.
This disgrace I shall never forget this
Now, let the duel begin!! Bring it to me as soon as its done!
I did the best I could with my Cure Jar.
I knew itd have to be perfect to stand a chance against what Roxis would make.
Th-thanks for your time
This is Whoa
Smell, texture, and taste I see
Hmm Theyre both
If I had to make the choice
I like this one better
It is difficult to decide, so this match is a tie.
Phew A tie
What!? No way !
Roxis has a little tweak I told him How could it have been a tie?
Yeah, Roxis was more effective than Vaynes
It was bitter Sure it worked, but it was so hard to drink
I still cant believe I tied with him in that first task.
An alchemist should never forget about the person who has to drink it
Vaynes medicine had an average effect, but it was really easy to drink.
Well I only made it the basic way
Nrhh Sorry. My advice came out for the worse
No, without your help, I would have lost It was my error in the details.
No objections? Then the first match is a tie!
Its too bad Whats the next match?
This match is Indeed! Man vs. Man, clash of the bodies, physical combat!
I knew this was it
I shouldnt need to say this, but both of you Dont dare go easy.
When youre ready, come to the Campus Grounds. Well be waiting for you.
Hope you do well!
Good luck to you both.
Try not to get hurt.
Everyone else left, but Roxis and I talked a bit longer. I understand now why he wanted to do this.
I just wanted to know, why did you want to duel all of a sudden ?
Ive lost to you twice. You remember, right?
Yeah But I had everyone else with me, so
Ive always wanted to defeat you.
Theofratus son who got into the school without even taking the exams
Its only resentment, I know.
I somehow got forced into this workshop, and we havent fought since.
I only know of my two losses against you.
Thats why I wanted to fight you one more time before graduating.
I want to know my own skill. And most of all I want to win against you.
Im going ahead. Ill be waiting.
But, the past two years were fun. I guess I can thank you for that.
Hoh hoh. Youre so cute. Even your ears are turning pink.
Sh-You didnt need to say that!
I headed down to the campus grounds, where everyone was waiting.
Um Maybe we shouldnt.
Oh, dont kill the spirit. What we must do, is only watch over them.
Itll be fine. Youre worrying too much.
If worst comes to worst, I will behead the other
No, no! No beheading!
Anyways, lets actually start now Fight until youre satisfied lads!
Let us, Vayne!
Roxis has definitely been practicing.
Boss Battle: Roxis
Roxis doesnt have that much health but he does hit hard, put an end to this with a Chaos Devotion quickly.
But he still couldnt manage to win.
Heh Hehe Hah, haha, ahahahahaha!
I think he broke
Ahahaha hahaha ahh--. I guess I still cant.
Right. Barely I didnt make it before graduation, but I can win next time.
Next time ?
Thats right. Im spiteful you see. Ill follow you around until I win.
Ill be your opponent any day. Though, Im going to win next time, too.
Then the time after that.
Ill win that one, too. I think youre gonna follow me forever.
Its amazing this ended like this, given that not too long ago Roxis had sworn to be my nemesis or something.
Theyre friends now.
Well, its pretty close to what I aimed for.
You sure? Its not that fun sticking around with just a plain talented kid.
Ill just watch for the timing and mess things around a bit.
Hahaha, I shall happily lend you my hand when the time comes.
These two seem very close, too
In comparison, theyre much more evil
