How ridiculous and how strange to be surprised at anything which happens in life.
Without further ado, Justin stepped into the kitchen like a king. While Chloe and the rest follow her, grinning.
Meanwhile, the students guarding the entrance didn't let out a sound. Anytime, their eyes caught the unconscious sight of Owen. They shuddered.
"What happened here!?" Robert's cold, arrogant voice echoed in the kitchen corridor. He looked at the students guarding the entrance with fury. His eyes darkened, clenching his fist. Behind him was the group of people having a meeting.
"Do you need to ask what happened? Obviously, someone had forced their way into the kitchen. " Isla smiled.
"What should we have done?" Isla turned to Kelly, raising her brow.
"I don't know. At least we should have tried to stop that young man from behaving like a maniac. "
"Where is the young man?" Robert asked.
One of the students guarding the entrance pointed to the second floor. Immediately, Robert dashed to the second floor. 'How dare a nobody to go against the Royals? ' He thought in fury.
"So you're saying only the students closer to the Royals are not going out to look for supplies. While the others had to risk their lives to search for supplies for a tiny portion of food. "
Justin swallowed a large piece of meat, not minding the hungry gaze of the three in front of him.
"Y-Yes," Nasir nodded, licking his lips. He had never had a sumptuous meal since the world turned into darkness.
But seeing the lavish meal in front of Justin made him crave food. Furthermore, Chloe and Nika were trying hard not to take the food from Justin's presence.
Meanwhile, all the students in the cafeteria looked at Justin's group, flabbergasted. Who the hell is he to have such a privilege of eating such a sumptuous meal? Some looked at Justin with envy, while others had conflicted expressions on their faces.
"So, what do you do?" Justin drank a bottle of fruit juice. He exhaled deeply and grinned. He thought, 'What a satisfying meal.'
Hearing the unexpected question, the three looked at each other, not understanding what Justin meant. "What do you expect us to do? We can't fight a bunch of those people. We can only go with the flow of things." Nika answered seriously.
"Oh! I see. "Justin wiped his mouth clean and looked at the faces of the three without uttering a word.
An ufortable silence descended upon the group. The three were looking at Justin while he was also staring at them.
After being in awkward silence for a couple of minutes, Nasir broke the silence. "What do you expect us to do?"
"I don't know," Justin replied, as a matter of fact.
Nika squinted his brow and looked at the blank expression on Justin's face for a few seconds, lost in thought. Should we have done something? Just then, an icy voice interrupts their thoughts.
"Who the hell gave you the audacity to force your way into the kitchen?" Robert berated, holding the hilt of his sword tied to his waist.
Hearing the arrogant voice, Chloe and the others had a pensive gaze. While the students had a fascinating gaze.
They wanted to see how things would unfold. While others looked at Justin with disdain. 'Let's see how this prick will be taught a lesson.'
However, to everyone's shock, Justin didn't utter a word. He sat there calmly, looking at the faces of the people in front of him. 'Let's see what you're going to do?' Justin thought. Like reading his mind, Nasir stood up and flared his nose.
"Is it your family kitchen or what?" Nasir shouted, looking at the students with disdain. "You don't have the right to tell us what to do or not."
"You're right. It is not our family's kitchen. But we're in trying times. If everyone behaved like you people, then, sooner or later, every one of us would starve to death. "
Isla's reasonable voice echoed on the second floor. Hearing this, the students nodded, looking at Justine with hatred.
A purple glow appeared on Isla's pupil for a split of seconds before disappearing like it had never happened. She stepped forward to face the students.
"Some of you may not accept the system we put in place. But I assure you, it was for the betterment of our lives. If we don't regulate how things are done, it won't be long until we fall into despair. " Isla's sweet voice echoed in the ears of every student in her presence. While the look in their eyes was filled with reverence,
"We did not put this system in place because we are the Royals. But we did collectively this, with the assistance of the strongest people and the only professor in our midst. We are trying to ensure the survival of everyone. We are not your enemies; the beasts and the zombies are our enemies. We must work collectively to survive this threat, "Isla continued.
"If you don't like this system put in place by us, you are free to do as you like. But not at the expense of feeding on other people's labour. We need your understanding and assistance to search for our brothers and sisters out there. While we hope to leave this place safely to join other surviving human shelters, this is our aim... will you please support us? " Isla asked with a gorgeous smile on her beautiful round lips.
"Yes!" the students shouted, their blood pumping with vigor.
Isla turned to Justin and asked, "Are you going to destroy this system because of your greediness, or let us work together to save others?"
'This lady is good!' Justin exclaimed in his mind. But he shook his head. If he didn't know her other side, He would have accepted her proposal. Alas... he knew everything was just a fa?ade.
"You can do your thing while I do mine," Justin announced.
