70 Safety Training

 After the fight, the school dismissed the class and ordered the guards to clean up the place. Roy was basically fine as he didn't sustain any wound on his body. He even mocked the group as they were simply too weak for him.

The next day, Kanae arrived in the school early in the morning. She wanted to know whether Misae would come to the school or not after that incident. Her heart settled down when she saw that her best friend already arrived in the class.

"Are you alright, Misae?" Kanae waved her hand in front of the girl.

Misae nodded her head. She calmed down yesterday as she tried to forget about the brutal fight. Before this, most of the fight she saw was only spar and they were friendly, which always ended in a good note. This time, they involved death and the likes.

"There's no need to worry so much. I'm okay."

"You're not," Kanae sat down. "If you want to say something, I'll lend you my ear."

"No need. Your ear can't move from its place on your head."

"Are you treating my ear like clothes?"

Alice arrived in the class not long after that. She was bringing a bag of cookies, which ended in the trio's stomach within minutes.

"Your cookies are still as good as usual," Misae smiled.

"I'm still improving my skill."

At that time, other students also started to come inside the class. Kanae looked towards the stack of newspaper not far from her.

"Do you buy another batch of newspapers, Misae?"

Misae nodded her head. "Not me, it's my father."

Kanae was not in the mood to read news, but she still peered towards the headline of all news.

"The Negotiation Failed Again!"

"Souhon Clan started to attack the other party due to negotiation failed."

"Another public area is attacked!"

"Will the Souhon Clan stop their march?"

It seemed that the Souhon Clan didn't even bother covering their trace as many of the news could simply found out that they were the one who made the attack. If the Souhon Clan didn't want anyone to know, they could easily erase the tracks and hid deeply.

Kanae frowned. What do they hope to achieve with this blatant news of attack? She really wanted to know, but it was not her business and it might be dangerous for her.

"The teacher told us to gather at the field after lunch," Kanae said. They heard the news from the teacher that today there was no class, but they have to gather on the field after lunch.

"I heard that. Why do you think they want us to gather there?" Misae asked curiously.

"I thought you knew about that."

"I don't."

Alice also shook her head.

In the end, they have to wait until it was the time for lunch before they headed towards the field. The students were all gathered in the field and it took them a long of time before they can line up nicely. The one who organized the students was tired because the students didn't want to listen.

Kanae was standing at the very front of the line with a dark face. Even after all this time, she was still the shortest girl in the class. Glancing at the back, she felt slight envy to see Misae in the middle of the line, even nearing the very back. As for Alice, she was also in the middle, despite slightly shorter than Misae.

After the students had lined up, the teacher appeared from the side with a man following after him.

"Good afternoon everyone, today there is a guest from the police station," moving slightly to the side, he introduced the man with him, "This is Kano Dara, a police captain, for today he will teach you about the safety lesson."

"Eh, did he say Dara?" student 1 said in a surprised tone.

"I think I have heard that name somewhere."

"It's your surname, right Misae?"

"Do you know him, Misae?"

Misae didn't bother listening to them as her eyes were locked to the front. She was completely stunned by the man in front of her. Did she know him? Of course she did. He is her father!

Her father didn't say anything about the training this morning. She felt embarrassed to have her father come here. The students in this school were rather smart when it came to remembering the surname because they always curious if a certain surname has relation to something else. Before long, she was sure that the entire school would know that her father was a police.

He should have told her! In the end, Misae barely heard anything that her father said from the front. Not that she worried because he always repeated the same thing every weekend, so she has already remembered all of them.

After school, Kanae approached Misae, "I didn't think that I will be seeing your father here."

"I don't know about it too," Misae grunted.

"Do you want to participate in the practice?" Kanae pointed to the front. After the lecture finished, Kano proceeded to teach the ones who wanted to practice with them. Many of the boys came forward because they wanted to learn and only some of them who had other things to do didn't participate.

Misae shook her head. "I don't want to meet with him."

Kanae and Alice giggled when they heard Misae's response. They knew that she was embarrassed to have her father came to school.

"I think he's worried about you," Kanae noticed that Kano glanced towards Misae a couple of times during the speech and explanation. It was clear that he came because he wanted to meet with Misae.

Misae turned to look at her father again. Really, her father didn't tell her something like this. He was still busy teaching the other enthusiastic students on how to do the practice correctly. Misae smiled at the sight because she knew that Kanae was correct.

"I think so too."

"Don't you need to talk with him?" Alice asked with a smile.

Misae looked towards her father and shook her head. "I'll just grab something to eat and return here later. What about you two?"

"I have to work," Kanae smiled wryly.

Alice fidgeted. "I have to go home."

"Alright, see you two in school tomorrow."

The three of them went their separate ways. Misae returned to the field after she had filled her belly with foods. She soon found her father still teaching a handful of students left. She became unsure whether she should greet him or not.

Kano waved towards her, "Misae! Are you alright?"

"Yes, father," Misae nodded her head. "Are you still busy? I can wait."

"No, we have finished since a few minutes ago. Let's go home," Kano beckoned her to come over.

Misae nodded politely to the other students before leaving with her father. She didn't know any of them, but it was better to stay polite to them.
