The two people are Humbert Zizek and Raios Antinous, the two nobles who harassed Kirito and sliced his flowers. Even though the two is there, Eugeo still decided to go in the training room and ignore them. Be will start his training by striking a practice log and keeping in mind what Kirito told him about the strength of one’s sword. He will claim that the style of Raios and Humbert are using strength a half from their body and a half from their pride.
After finishing his practice, he is once again being bullied by Raios and Humbert, who mocks Eugeo’s lack of form. Humbert offered to teach him a lesson, to which Eugeo surprisingly accepted.
