You'd think his classmates would be a bit more forthcoming if it was that important, since he's got more information from eyepatch girl than anyone else combined. Also, as time goes on, the OP sounds more and more out of place to me. It sounds more like something that should be the OP from a show based on something like Castlevania or maybe Disgaea.The MC does seem oddly oblivious - good on him for going to the nurse to dig up info (patient confidentiality? What's that?) but when your classmates are talking about some vague secret in front of you and have someone who's sole job is to run damage control on... something... then just ask them WTF is going on. It's less rude than asking someone why they wear an eyepatch, at least.
