Everyone was startled when the door was slammed by someone. They turned around and saw Theo, who was covered in blood, panting.
They sucked a cold breath because, in their mind, Theo was strong. He could even overwhelm Eric Salvatore. Yet, there were numerous wounds on his body, and no one could determine whether he could continue teaching or not after all this.
All the teachers stood up, trying to check on Theo. Although they wanted to get Theo's favor, they were also confused by this sudden situation.
"What's wrong with you?"
The teachers frowned while figuring out the situation.
Theo gritted his teeth as his body became weaker and weaker.
"Hurry up and call the doctor. We need to heal him immediately." One of the teachers shouted while another one asked, "What happened, Mr. Ary? Who reduced you to such a state?"
"I… don't know." Theo weakly responded as if he wanted to pass out. He pointed at the direction where the fight occurred and stated, "That direction. I was ambushed…"
"This…" The teachers were stunned. There were a lot of possibilities in his mind such as influences or organizations that wanted to threaten him for his recommendation. However, there was one influence that stood out among the rest.
The Salvatore Family. They thought the Salvatore Family was taking their revenge because of what happened a few days ago and that punishment. Remembering how angry the King of Fighters was yesterday, it was clear that they wouldn't hold back. Even if they couldn't hit Theo or the Star Group, they could still kill Ary, who harmed Eric. Hence, this was a perfect ambush.
However, Theo had strong power. It was impossible for him to go down without a fight.
That was why he added, "I don't know how they did it, but there was no sound coming out of there. Be careful…"
Theo gritted his teeth for a moment before passing out.
"Hurry up! Where is the doctor?!"
While Theo was still unconscious, they reported the entire matter to the central committee. Due to what happened to Theo, the Vice President became angry and assured everyone he would deal with this situation.
The entire place was startled by the ambushers who could take down Theo without anyone noticing. If it was anyone else, they might not be able to survive. Hence, this was the biggest threat that they had experienced.
Obviously, the other influences also wanted to use this to make Ary owe them. So, they tried to shower Ary with numerous healing medicines so that he could recover as soon as possible.
In the end, the Vice President was the one who took out the highest grade of the recovery medicine to close all his wounds. As for his strength, Ary might be weaker for the time being, but it shouldn't hinder him from teaching the students.
Still, all influences began to spread, trying to gather as much information as possible.And finally, Theo woke up a few hours later.
"Mhm…" Theo let out a small groan while looking around, finding Ruby sitting next to his bed. It seemed she was the one taking care of him this whole time.
"Ruby?" Theo called her name, startling Ruby who was staring at her Skylink.
"Oh, Mr. Ary. You have woken up!" Ruby's eyes brightened. "I'm glad that you're alright."
"This… how long have I been unconscious?" Theo asked while looking around, figuring out his current situation.
"You were unconscious for four hours. We were shocked to see you covered in wounds.
"I apologize if that startled you." Theo nodded with a serious expression. "What about those people?"
As if knowing Theo had woken up, a middle-aged man entered the room. He had a long white coat and a Skylink about Theo's information. "There is no long-lasting injury. The medicine has completely closed all your wounds, but you still can't push yourselves too much for the next three days."
"I'm grateful for your help, but if you don't mind, can I ask you what's going on outside?" Theo asked.
"There are simply too many things going on after your incident. They're investigating the matter of your incident right now. Hence, you should take care of yourself first before thinking about it." The doctor explained with a calm expression as if it didn't bother him. "Anyway, I'm going to call the military to get your statement so that it's easier for them to investigate the situation."
Theo nodded with a serious expression as if this was a matter of great importance.
Meanwhile, Theo also took out his Skylink and called Maya.
Maya was surprised to see Theo covered in bandages. "What happened to you?"
She instantly suspected something was going on and asked, "Who did it? Give me the name!"
"I don't know." Theo shook his head helplessly. "I was attacked by four people."
"I see. Is it the Salvatore Family?"
"I'm not so sure about that as well." Theo thought for a moment and said, "I don't think they feel like humans."
"Huh?" Maya tilted her head in confusion. "What do you mean?"
"I have fought a lot of people in the past and I can understand how they fight. On the other hand, when I fought them, they didn't feel like they were humans. I couldn't describe it, but that was how I felt… The instinct that I had honed for a long time told me they weren't humans."
Maya's expression turned grim. "Not a human? Then, is it not the Salvatore Family?"
"I don't know about it either."
"Mhm… Who did you meet in the past two days?"
"I don't think I remember anyone of high level except for the Vice President…"
"Is this the work of the Vice President? He's so bold to do it. It seems that banning the military is not enough. I should have banned the entire government."
"I'm not sure about that as well. Other than that feeling, I don't know anything else. Maybe I'll try to gather my thoughts to understand the situation better."
"You're someone whose ability I trust greatly, so if you think that way, I'll believe they're not humans. But we have to figure out their identity. Well, try to gather some information. I'll see if it's enough to alarm Theo."
"Yes." Theo nodded.
