“I have brought you your breakfast and a change of clothes. You'll be eating in the cafeteria with everyone else starting this evening, but there's no seat for you yet this morning."
"Oh, it smells so good."
Almark took the plate with his breakfast and sat down on his bed.
He puts his meal into his mouth quickly and deftly. He hardly seems to taste it.
"Thank you for breakfast."
After finishing his breakfast in less than a minute, Almark stood up quickly.
"I need to wash my face and fix my sleeping habits," he said. "I have to do it properly on the first day, Where is there water?"
Almark looked up and said, "Oh, there are washrooms in the dormitory, but the quickest way is ...... there."
Ziad pointed down from the window. There were five large wells there.
“Yes, that's right, I'll be going now.”
Almark quickly changed into the clothes Ziad had brought and went out outside..
He went out of the room and ran down the stairs. On the first floor, just outside the front door, he could hear the laughter of children coming from a large room.
This must be the dining room, Almark thought.
He peeked in and saw many children talking, laughing, and eating.
For a moment, he imagined himself eating there, surrounded by friends, and chuckled at the impossibility of it all." Well, I'll do what I can do now."
There was a person at the well. She was a girl of the same age as Almark, with an elegant face. She was carefully washing her glossy black hair, which almost reached her waist.
"Good morning, ......."
When Almark called out to her, the girl glanced at him. She had a victorious look in her eyes.
"Who are you? You don't look familiar."
A beautiful but cold voice.
"I arrived here yesterday."
...... "Oh, so you're the new student."
The student sniffed in a bored manner.
"Do you heard about me?"
"The rumor has been going around since yesterday," the girl said. "They say they haven't had a transfer students in decades," she said. They're all excited to see what kind of wonderful person will be coming in. Even ......, ...... yes, you're the new student."
The girl had clearly lost interest in Almark.
"I'm sorry to disappoint you."
Almark paid no attention to the girl. He drew water from the well and washed his face with a splash. The cold water felt good.
I'm Almark. What’s your name ?"
"Leila. Leila Coogan."
She has a family name. She's the daughter of a nobleman, after all.
It looks like everyone is having breakfast,
Almark said as he straightened his hair.
'Are you sure you don't want some?"
"I only have a little bit in the morning."
"You're not going to get in trouble?"
“ No, but it's noisy when Maia finds out. You , there for the first time.”
"Are you done? If you have any questions, ask someone else later."
Layla said so and walked away.
Almark also silently fixed his sleeping habit and went back to his room.
