Chapter 1.09 is the tenth chapter of Volume 1.
The skeletal monstrosity is struck by a flying pot before it could even finish its sentence.
The creature disintegrates and vanishes away, revealing an unconscious young man, wearing grey robes. A big bruise present on their forehead.
Erin stares at the man and his robes.
The young man wakes up after being splashed with a bucket of water. Waking up, he looks at Erin who returns his stare with her own. He speaks up, admonishing her for treating a mage of power with rudeness but was promptly cut off with Erin lifting the iron pot with a hand.
The man tries to appease her, but Erin waves the pot around— threatening him with a pan, before realizing that it was a pot and coloring in embarrassment. The young man soon disappears out of sight but Erin resists his attempts at escaping her, and forces him to pay for a meal. Or rather, staring at him until he began offering coins for amendment.
Erin then offers him some blue fruit, but the man pales at the sight of it and asks if she would hit him with the pot if he does not eat it. Erin asks him if he's allergic to the color blue or something and the mage explains that the blue fruit, Amentus, is in fact poisonous. He further reveals facts about the world and the surroundings.
After he finishes his plate of pasta and was about to leave, Erin asks for his name and he introduces himself as Pisces a practitioner of magic, a student of Wistram Academy, specializing in Elementalist and Illusionary schools of magic. When asked for a hobby, he hesitantly admits Necromancy.
