Hello there. This is Charlotte.
I am currently in the middle of escaping reality.
“Get away from Charlotte.”
“Big brother!” (Mira)
“…I’m not your brother.”
My brother forcibly ripped Mira away from me and was protecting me behind his back while he and Mira fought with each other.
“What do you know about Charlotte?”
“I’ve been watching Charlotte-sama for the past half month or so!”
In comes a stalker-like comment!
Has he been stalking me for the past half month!?!
I couldn’t help but return back to reality…
“When Charlotte-sama uses fire magic, a pillar of high-pressure flames will rise up, and when she uses ice-based magic, everything will freeze in an instant, a world of death!!”
Are you…talking about the dungeon?
Don’t tell me…he’s been following me!?!
“Yesterday, you were singing while floating around in the air, right?”
“Charl…what were you doing?”
My brother turned around.
“Ahaha, well, that is…”
After today’s dungeon investigation, I would be able to meet Ricardo-sama! I had just been so excited…
And before I knew it, I was floating!
When I finally realized it, I was in a hurry.
I laughed and faked it.
“And there was also the time—” (Mira)
What do you mean…other times!?!
I wanted to shut him up, but I couldn’t because my brother was in the way.
“Charl…you and I are going to have a long discussion later.”
My brother smiled happily.
“I’m interested in you who shows no signs of fatigue no matter what magic you use! I would love to have you as my experimental guinea pig!”
Don’t call me a guinea pig!!
I hate this idiot…
He’s supposedly a genius…but God, he’s crazy!
My older brother looked at me, who was slumping over with disappointment, and then turned to Mira.
“Any information about Charlotte’s magic is highly confidential. It’s a state-level secret. The only people who actually know about it are a few core members.”
This is the first time I’m hearing about this, though!?
Or rather, I don’t know what to say, but is Howard in on it then?
Oh, but he is the son of the Knight Commander…
“Therefore, a second son of the Count family knowing about this is dangerous. Do you understand what I mean?”
Huh? Somehow, isn’t the air getting colder…?
I looked up at the two of them.
My brother was expressionless and Mira had a strong face.
“If you reveal that information, I won’t have any other choice but to eliminate you…it’s your choice, you know?”
He’s threatening him!
He says he’ll kill him if he tells anyone!!
A pale Mira was biting his lip tightly.
My brother is scary…I understand what you’re going through.
It was an atmosphere that seemed like it would tear you apart if you let your guard down.
“If you can help me, then I won’t say anything.”
Mira looked at my brother and said so clearly.
Great job Mira! You did great!
I praised Mira in my heart and watched the situation.
“Hmm. So that’s where you’re coming from.”
My brother’s eyes lit up as if he had found something interesting. He seemed to have taken an interest in Mira.
“I’ll invest in you upfront.”
“However, there is one condition.”
“You must not do anything Charlotte does not like.”
“…Is that it?”
Mira tilted his head.
“If you ever make Charlotte cry, I’ll eliminate you, okay?”
Demon Lord Lucas has arrived!!
Mira nodded furiously many times.
“That’s fine then. I’ll help you. Charlotte is good with that too, right?”
“…Yes. I will obey
the Demon Lord my brother…”
I could feel my brother’s eyes on me as if he wanted to say something…Ignore it!!!
After all, I’m going to get a lecture later anyway -tears-
“Then, from today on, Mira will live in the mansion.”
“—! Thank you very much!!”
My older brother had an inappropriate smile as Mira bowed his head.
Thus, it was decided that another toy, Mira (for my brother’s exclusive use), would stay with the Avi family.
Good luck, Mira!!!
Later on, I heard from my brother that Mira’s situation was more serious than I had initially thought.
On that day, the Boulangère mansion was half-destroyed.
I heard that Mira’s assassination was scheduled to be carried out.
An explosion so powerful that it destroyed half the mansion. Mira was caught in the explosion as an accident and was going to lose his life. Mira, who had been conducting his experiments in a perfect state, was not involved and was unharmed.
It seems that he thought he was going to be kicked out because he destroyed the mansion, but he didn’t know the truth.
I think Mira is smart enough to know the whole story…
…How could they kill their own child, their own family?
It’s because the Boulangère family is a house that has been eliminating albinos for years. That was the only reason.
They wrongly assumed that albinos were of tainted blood.
Instead of looking at what was on the inside, they were going to eliminate Mira.
If they’re such a twisted house, it should just perish.
I didn’t want to meet Mira before, but now I was really glad that I did.
I just didn’t want to get involved with him, but I didn’t wish for him to die.
Unsuccessful assassinations were always carried out until they succeed.
The adults at the center of the country, including my father, who realized that the young genius Mira was in danger, were apparently planning to save him, but when they learned that Mira himself had chosen my brother and I, they decided to watch over him quietly with a guard.
As it was, Mira would be isolated from the Boulangère family under the orders of the government.
In other words, they were saying “I know everything you guys have done. If you do anything to us, the government will take action against you.” It was a threat.
If he wanted, he could be adopted by some other family.
The Avi family was one of those candidates.
In order to let older brother, who would be the next head of the family, assess the situation, my father went to the dungeon investigation and was absent.
So, there was a reason after all…
I’m sorry for raising the doom flag, Father.
I hope you’re safe…?
From my brother’s point of view, he only wanted to see if I would be harmed or not.
Big brother! I love you!
It was said that a laboratory and living facility would soon be built in the mountains behind the Avi family.
It seems that not only Mira, but also other researchers would be joining in to study the dungeon.
It was my brother’s idea.
My big brother is the best!! I love you!
This might be another reason to reduce the chances of the ‘stampede’ happening.
History can be changed.
I would keep moving forward to make sure my actions were not in vain.

Mira seems to have become female in these passages.
