The swaying Headmistress of the school took out a sheet of paper with a level motion.
“Well now, Gabriella, I see that you are getting along quite well with Yuliela-sensei, the arithmetic teacher.”
“What? Headmistress, no way…”
“What do you mean, Headmistress? Yuliela-sensei’s family has been in contact with the Verandels for a long time, so it’s only natural that they’re close.”
The prince said so as if he was dumbfounded. In response, Gabriella moved her head in affirmation with a wobbly shake of her head.
“You don’t think Gabriella is cheating, do you? That can’t be true. I was certainly surprised at the results, but in the noble Rose Society, which is full of new aristocrats, many of them are able to do arithmetic in order to help their parents in their businesses… Isn’t that right, Gabriella?”
“Y-Yeah yeah! Yes, that’s right!”
Gabriella is a messily scrambling, but the prince looked relieved when he heard her reply.
Well, I wonder if you did it on your own, Gabriella. This reaction is…
The headmistress, who had been watching the situation closely, muttered ‘hmm…’ and then tucked the paper away in her pocket.
“Well, what is it, Headmistress? You don’t want to say that I’ve been cheating, do you!? If that’s the case, then I’m much more suspicious of this Golden Dawn Gang!”
Gabriella began to raise her high-pitched voice. I see, she’s the type of person who tries to distract the other party from the point of contention by making the same charges against them when they hit a sore spot.
Hearing those words, Laurier-sama fought back.
“We were just working hard.”
The prince stepped forward in place of Gabriella, who flinched for a moment at his imposing appearance.
“But it’s strange. You guys are still good, but I’ve never heard of a beast child being able to use magic like that!”
“Hmm…you say that much. Then why don’t we give it a try?”
When the headmistress said that, the prince made a dumb face, asking “What?”
“Yes, that’s a good idea. Since we are here, how about a third round to settle the score between the Noble Rose Society and the Golden Dawn Gang? The place is right here!”
“No way, Headmistress.”
Ray-sensei, who had come to my side, turned pale.
The headmistress’ eyes glowed as she grinned with a shining smile.
“It’s a duel!”
A commotion spread. A crowd of people had heard the commotion and had gathered around saying stuff like, ‘A duel!’ ‘Oh, really?’ ‘Who and who?’
“H-Hey, Headmistress. That’s not a good idea! For the most part, we’ve been able to get away with a draw and not get bothered!”
“We won’t get end it this way. We’re getting close to getting rid of it firmly. Isn’t it the best way to solve this kind of problem by getting it over with as soon as possible?”
“Hah. Headmistress, you shouldn’t do that. I can’t be a bully to the weak…Most of all, how can you do that to Alice-sama, who has been holed up like a ghost for so long?”
When Nicholas, who came out of the waiting room, said this, Johann, who was standing behind me, snapped.
“…You don’t know anything! I can’t forgive you anymore!”
I grabbed Johann’s hand that was about to pull out his Athame, and stopped him in a hurry.
Nicholas clicked his tongue.
“You need to back off, Johann,’ he said. …… or do you want to get beaten up again like old times?
Nicholas’ eyes suddenly change color and he begins to glare at Johann with a glare.
“I won’t lose to you in a fight anymore…Brother.”
Johann glared right back at Nicholas.
…Yeah. I’m sure you might have guessed it by now, them sharing the same the family name ‘Duker’ and all. These two people…
—They are brothers.
T/N: Alice sure lucked out with the better brother, huh?
