One Week Passed.
" Open your eyes, stretch out your tongue. ", the doctor in the infirmary ordered.
Max followed his instructions and did as he was asked.
" Hm..your wounds have healed pretty much, there are no signs of infection. Even the fever has toned down. You can leave but remember to take care of your health."
Finally, Max could leave. This whole week he had been lying on the bed. He was worried that the system would deduct FPs for the morning training but luckily the system didn't do so. It took into consideration and gave Max a bit of leeway due to his situation.
" Hey! You are done here "
A voice entered Max's ear and he turned his head towards the door to see Axle standing there. He too was covered in bandages.
Max looked towards the doctor who gave him a nod in approval.
" Yeah! I am done. Let's go. ", Max said as he got onto his feet.
Both of them were to be released today. They had already been resting for a week and now it was time for them to return to their lives.
Max along with Axle got out of the room as they started to walk out of the building.
" How's your leg now?", Max asked as he looked towards Axle's foot.
" It's almost healed now.", Axle replied.
" Boys! You are out now."
Hearing the voice, they looked ahead to find the old nurse who had been taking care of them these past few days.
" It's good that I found both of you here. I just got informed that the Headmaster has summoned you two."
" Headmaster is looking for us? ", Axle asked in surprise.
" Oh!.. I forgot to inform you. You probably don't know since you were passed out. The Headmaster had paid us a visit. And..we are caught." Max said in helplessness.
" Y..You! Are we going to get expelled.", Axle asked as he stuttered.
" Luckily not, but...we still have to face some kind of punishment.", Max replied.
" Thank God! , anything is fine as long as it's not expulsion."
Axle knocked on the door and a voice came from the cabin.
" Come in "
Axles twisted the doorknob and pushed the door open. With him taking the lead, Max followed behind.
Entering the room, both of them found the headmaster on his chair working on his laptop. There was a maid inside the room standing beside the headmaster. She was standing straight with her hands in front, her right hand was holding her wrist of the other hand.
Both of them stood in front of the headmaster, waiting for him to speak.
Suddenly Max felt the touch on his arms and turned his head to see Axle pointing towards the maid with his eyes.
" What's wrong with her? ", Max slowly whispered.
" Do you think that's the headmaster's taste? ", Axle slowly whispered.
Hearing him Max felt his body go cold. He couldn't help but think, ' This bastard will get me killed.'
" Shut up! If he hears us, we are done for. Even if he didn't expel us earlier, he would do it now."
" Come in "
There was a knock on the door and the headmaster spoke.
The door to the cabin opened and a familiar girl with black hairs covered in bandages walked in.
Max and Axle were both surprised to see that person here. It was Lisa Walker.
They really wanted to avoid her. She was the last person they wanted their identities to be exposed to.
Because she was a b*tch in their minds.
Even though she really cooperated, helped Axle, and even helped in their escape.
That was the only good thing she did. Besides, she was doing it for herself too. So, this wasn't enough for them to change their perspective about her even by a percent. She already had a bad history and it couldn't be changed easily.
" So finally all of you are here. ", the headmaster finally spoke as he shifted his gaze from the screen to them.
" Now then, I will hand out the punishment. All of you have broken the school law. You all have been out of the school without proper leave. Don't you know the school rules!! LOOK AT YOURSELF, not only did you break the rules, each and every one of you got into some kind of trouble."
Suddenly the Headmaster turned his head towards Max, " Mr. Edwinson can't you even properly see the cars on the road."
He then turned his head towards Axle, " And you Mr. Rim, why can't you watch your steps on the stairs. "
And then his gaze moved onto Lisa, " Miss Walker, you should avoid troublesome situations when you see one. Please avoid trying to be a hero next time."
" Huh? What stairs..I didn't sli-", Axle was confused about the situation and tried to speak.
But suddenly he was cut off mid-sentence as a hand covered his mouth.
It was Max.
He covered Axle's mouth with one hand and pushed his head down with another one.
" We really regret our actions headmaster.", Max said while bowing his head down.
" What are you doing?", Axle whispered.
" You idiot, the headmaster is covering for us. Just apologize and go with the flow. Or do you wanna get expelled." Max whispered.
Looking at their action, the headmaster too gave a nod of appreciation.
He was covering up for them at the same time scolding them.
Unable to see a car, he meant why can't you see trouble.
Watch out steps, it obviously meant that Axle's actions were out. But it was covered up by them.
The last one about Lisa trying to act as a hero, it meant that she should have tried to opt for a better alternative than sacrificing herself for her friend.
" Enough, you can raise your head. All of you haven't joined any clubs yet, right? ", the headmaster said.
Hearing him, all of them nodded.
" Great, I will create a new club, it's your punishment. From now on, you are all the members of the Cleanliness Club. Your task will be to help the staff in maintaining the cleanliness on the campus."
" I have already informed the staff. They will teach you how to keep the campus clean."
" Do you have any questions? ", the headmaster asked as he scanned all three dumbfounded people in front of him.
" If you don't have any, please leave." He said as he shifted his gaze back to the laptop.
Hearing the voice, the headmaster raised his head to see Axle raising his hand.
" Do you have any problems Mr. Rim? "
" No..No..how can I have any problems. I was just curious. Do we even need to clean the toilets? "
Hearing him, Max only felt like slapping his forehead.
