The remaining contenders were brought down to the underground of the arena where a table of food was waiting for us.
Our escort then said, "Take a seat, enjoy the feast and about an hour from now we will continue the trials. We can just let you continue the trials but our spectators can not. So just enjoy the rest for now. I'll leave you be with these guards."
The other members we have as an allies earlier rushed down to their seats and immediately feasted on the food. I sat down next to Zeta and across Mizuki. I took some food on my plate even though I don't need it. I encouraged Zeta to at least eat to reduce the stress piling up on him.
I looked over to Mizuki to take a good look at him. For a man he has a clear skin and eats incredibly small amounts. He's feminine despite his name. I was the first to strike up a conversation with him,
"What?" Mizuki asked.
"I just wanted to ask, where'd you learn your swordsmanship?"
