The Shapeshifter Academy: Chapter 2

Thump.

My last remaining comrade collapsed to the ground without any hope of being saved.

Conquering a carnivorous beast was always a journey that came with sacrifices. Many of my comrades had already lost their lives, and now a fierce white tiger blocked the entrance to the canyon.

“Oh no.”

Shadows fell on my face as I checked for any escape routes. There was nowhere left for me to retreat.

“A mere carnivorous beast… defeated my comrades!”

I squeezed out the last remaining bit of my power.

With a creaking sound, the white tiger, sensing the immense power, rolled its foot and roared.

The wind, carrying the scent of thick blood, whipped through the crevices of the canyon. The curtain was about to rise on an epic tale that would be remembered in history, a tale that would determine the peace and tranquility of the continent.

“What…?”

By the shores of the central lake in Patrieon, a child who had been listening to my adventure wiped the cold sweat off their forehead.

“What happened next? What happened next?”

“You really managed to defeat the white tiger on your own?”

“You attacked the white tiger with magic, right?”

*Gulp.* The children swallowed nervously.

I shrugged my tired shoulders as if to show my exhaustion.

“Oh kids, stop dragging it out. Let’s go already!”

“You shot it with magic, right? You did, right?”

The young ones who were small enough to tug on my clothes shook my body vigorously.

“What would happen? After securing the peace, wouldn’t you all go sightseeing by the lake and roast sweet potatoes?”

“So, Bendy, you protected these sweet potatoes, huh?”

One of the amazed children pushed a sweet potato with a stick.

“See? Bendy is an amazing wizard, right?”

“Of course, it’s in the blood of the wizard!”

“I knew it when you skillfully peeled the potato. Well, I couldn’t see your hand movements!”

To defeat the tyrant of the canyon, the white tiger, with a single spell. The children of the village adventure team who believed me without a doubt cheered in amazement.

Satisfied with their reactions, the corners of my mouth twitched slightly.

Just as I tried to hold back my laughter, someone suddenly pushed their face against mine.

“…What’s this about a white tiger? Isn’t Bendy, well-”

“Shh.”

As a sudden intruder appeared, I furrowed my brows and lightly brushed my index finger against my lips. The intruder, with both hands on their waist, shouted loudly without a care.

“Aren’t you Bendy, the genuine deer merfolk who couldn’t catch a single cat?”

That was right. I was not a white tiger but a purebred deer merfolk that would cause cardiac arrest just by seeing a long cat.

“Did you hear the news?”

A sinister rumor began to circulate around the deer territory, Petrien.

A strange rumor that Bendy Reppy, a direct descendant of the Reppy family who governed Petrien, was going to marry a lion merfolk.

“Are they talking about the Bendy I know?”

The eccentric noblewoman who occasionally visited the shopping district.

“Marrying a lion merfolk? That doesn’t make any sense. This is the deer territory.”

“Well, it’s just a rumor that came from the Reppy family’s hired help.”

“Seems like someone sold their cousin. Tsk, how pathetic.”

The rumor spread like wildfire, reaching even the children in the village.

Coming to know the news late, the leader of the Patrieon adventure team, Moni, hastily summoned everyone to the hideout.

“…Does this make sense?”

For a moment, a heavy silence enveloped us, but one outraged child trembled violently.

“Marrying a lion merfolk? Does that even make sense?”

That cry was followed by a commotion as the children started babbling.

“It’s impossible! It must be a baseless rumor!”

“They are, they are… carnivorous merfolk. They eat us deer!”

Carnivorous merfolk.

The air around the children stiffened at the appearance of the forbidden existence in the deer territory.

Gradually, their trembling gazes turned toward me.

“Bendy!”

The anxious children surrounded me, their eyes fixed on me.

“Say something!”

“Isn’t it true that you’re marrying a lion merfolk? It’s just a lie from the adults, right?”

Due to the pushing from multiple directions, my body swayed like a sheet of paper.

With my hands resting on my knees, I calmly replied.

“It’s true.”

It was a voice devoid of any emotion.

The Shapeshifter Academy

The Shapeshifter Academy

The Shapeshifter Academy, where only carnivore shapeshifters attend.

If there is only one exception in that place,

“…I don’t taste good.”

It was me, the herbivore deer, Bendy Reppy.

I planned to quietly endure until graduation by hiding the fact that I’m a deer, pretending to be a fox, but.

“This year’s student council president is, Bendy Reppy.”

Ah.

No matter how I see it, I think it’s hopeless to graduate quietly.

Hiding my identity, avoiding the carnivore shapeshifters’ fangs, and even doing the Student Council President’s work, I’m so busy to death, but,

“Now, I think it would be a bit of a bummer if the President dies.”

I ended up getting involved with the fool white tiger, who’s crazy,

“It wasn’t long ago when I act annoyingly, saying that I’ll prey on you.”

The troublemaker wolf who feeds off of his own pride,

“Touch me.”

And even a real lion who abruptly asks me to touch him.

The Shapeshifter Academy in which they say that herbivore shapeshifters can’t survive.

“President, you look exactly like that.”

“….”

“A deer.”

I, surely should be able to graduate without getting caught, right?
