Mu Ning Xue never considered herself beautiful. It always seemed to her that such brainless behavior on the part of persons of the opposite sex was explained only by slightly distinguished hair and skin color.

In fact, it does not stand out for anything, and indeed, all these guys are some kind of sick.

“You’re also a magician, aren’t you?” A shy young man of about twenty asked quietly.

The man was wearing a simple shirt, he looked beautiful, neat, and a spark was burning in his eyes. However, to call him a sugary tongue would not have turned.

“Yes,” Mu Ning Xue replied shortly.

“Why did you come here so early?” Did anything happen to you? My … my name is Jian Yesan. Are you here to practice, huh? I myself am from Waseda University, ”Jiang Yessan sat next to the girl, but not too close – he did not want to dislike her.

Mu Ning Xue didn’t answer, she knew that she shouldn’t just say her name or give out any information that she was a member of the national team. Jian Yesan was smart, he immediately realized that the girl didn’t want something or talk about yourself, so immediately changed the subject.

He behaved slightly unnatural, looked at the waves beating against the walls of the fortress, after which he decided that the weather was a good topic and said: “The waves are so big, it means there will be a dangerous tide. I don’t know if the quarters’ owners were well prepared for the battle with the monsters … ”

“How are waves and monsters connected with each other?” Asked Mu Ning Xue.

Jiang Yesana’s eyes lit up, finally found the right topic for conversation. He tried to calm down and said: “Most of the monsters live underwater, at least those that can attack the fortress. And as the water level rises, it becomes easier for monsters to attack the fortress. The higher the water level, the more monsters will be. ”

When Lai Khenbao was talking about the features of these places, Mu Ning Xue had already gone to the room in order to go to bed. That is why she knew about this fortress quite a bit.

“So the next tide will be strong?” Asked Mu Ning Xue, looking at the waves.

“Yes. Many people think that the sea is mysterious and incomprehensible, but in fact even it has its own peculiarities and patterns. If you carefully observe, you can learn a lot of useful things … Especially for sea monsters. All of them are subject to the peculiarities of the sea. To study the sea means to study the monsters living in it, ”the man spoke very confidently, it was immediately apparent that this topic was well known to him.

Mu Ning Xue only nodded in response.

Only Jiang Yesan felt that he had found an interesting topic for conversation, as there was some noise nearby.

The soldiers began to shout, some of them began to run somewhere.

Mu Ning Xue went to the sound, and almost immediately saw how a short girl, ignoring all the warnings, rushed from the wall.

“Water, water, water!”

The girl flew down into the water.

“Save her! Save the man! ”Jiang Yesang shouted to the nearest soldiers as soon as he saw this scene.

Mu Ning Xue was very puzzled by this act. Right under the walls of the fortress was stranded, it seems like there are no monsters visible. There can not be so dangerous?

Jiang Yesan immediately ran to save the girl.

Mu Ning Xue saw how many soldiers immediately ran to the rescue. A doubt crept into her heart.

She used the path of the wind and in an instant she was close to Jiang Yesan.

The man saw silver hair rush past him. Jiang Yesan froze, only after a moment he said: “Do not let her get into the water, otherwise she will die!”

Mu Ning Xue, seeing that the man is not joking, flew up to the girl.

What she saw was terrible, the girl immediately realized that you should not go into the water …

There was no life in that girl!

Another quarter of an hour she was alive and full of energy, but now she was already dead. There was not a drop of blood on her body, but her skin was purple.

The body of the girl very quickly began to stiffen. Usually this happens after two hours after death, but it was obvious here: the girl was already numb.

By this time several soldiers arrived. One of them turned the girl’s body over, opened his eyes, and then opened her mouth. Blue blood vessels were visible all over her face. She looked like a drowned woman, moreover, one that had been in the water for some time.

“Alas! Everything is the same, ”the soldier inhaled, inspecting the girl.

“It’s all my fault. Could not stop her. I thought she was just walking by the wall, ”one of the soldiers said accusingly.

Meanwhile, Jian Yesan arrived at the scene of the tragedy. As soon as he saw the girl, anger and regret immediately appeared on his face.

He went to the corpse, sat down, then put on gloves and began to unbutton her clothes.

“You … what are you doing?”

“Fool, why do you disgrace her and yourself? The fact that she died does not allow you … “, – one of the soldiers cried out angrily.

Jiang Yesan raised his head. No trace remains of his regret. He looked determined.

“I knew her. I will by all means find out the reason for this strange epidemic! ”Said Jiang Yesang.

That soldier decided that it was still inhuman, and therefore he wanted to stop Jiang Yesang. However, only he moved from the spot, as an older man standing next to him blocked his way.

He looked at the soldier and said sternly: “Let him continue, there have already been so many cases, and we still do not know the reason.”

Mu Ning Xue saw Jiang Yesang begin the autopsy and immediately turned away.

That does not say, but to look at this is difficult.

“What happened?”, Mu Ning Xue asked the senior soldier.

“This is the curse of the drowned man. This happens all the time in the Tokai Fortress. Once in a while there is one who wants to jump into the sea, and then instantly dies. The strangest thing is that the corpse immediately shows the symptoms of a person who drowned many hours ago, ”explained the young soldier.

The older soldier looked at him and added: “Now it is called an epidemic, but what it really is, the devil knows … Because there are many times fewer deaths from this epidemic than from the clutches of sea monsters, no one will investigate it.”
