TDL&TH Chapter X: Encountering Halves of the Same Person

After the class, there was plenty of free time until the next class. Due to strange circumstances, I had been seated in between Asuka and Harmonia for my classes so far – whether it was Akasha’s interference or otherwise.

Yet, there has been something on my mind – from a book I had read.

According to the book, there exists a “spirit form” for the people of this world. Human in form, the body (or skin) can come in three possible colors: white, gray, and black.

From what Akasha noted, this is due to the Yin Yang principle existing, as the spirit’s hair will be the opposite of the body – meaning that the white body will pair with black hair and the black body will pair with white hair.

The oddity is that a gray body will pair with gray hair. This strange existence can mean that the person has achieved perfection, fully understanding the dual natures of spirit energy.

If you are wondering why I am not currently accompanying Harmonia…

She is enjoying the academy’s hot spring. As a proper gentleman and knight of Harmonia, it would be unacceptable to be in such a place, even for surveillance reasons.

As I was standing guard, I noticed two peculiar people – two girls, who had unusual features that did not (or at least I assume) exist. One had stark white hair, ghost-white eyes, and ivory skin. The other had eyes and hair so black that it one would feel as if their soul would be absorbed, as the hair reflected no light, yet the skin color was the same – could they possibly be siblings?

Huh… the girl with pitch black hair has a white rose hairpin and the other has a black rose hairpin…

Casting an appraisal-type magic, it revealed their statuses as:

Equal to my power if they both fuse into this… Ethel person… and they are the opposite of Demon Lord… well, this is rather surprising.

For a particular notice, Eirwen and Sable had both seemed to acknowledge my existence, but did not bother investigating any further. Although, they might have taken some sort of interest – which I do not mean as a form of self-flattery, but rather as diametrically opposed members of status.

After the pair had left, Harmonia and Asuka opened the doors of the hot springs.

“The next class is a sparring session, I think,” Asuka spoke.

“Indeed,though many would be no real match for Artem,” Harmonia said with a knowing smile.

“I will make sure to hold back then,” I responded with a smug grin, “just to make sure their pride stays intact.”

[Author’s Note]

Sorry for the late chapter, some stuff in relation to education had set me back along with slight writer’s block.

The next chapter will be from the Narrator’s POV.

Hm… after looking through the chapters, do you feel like this has been a bit rushed? Please do let me know in the comments!
