I looked over and saw a slightly scowling Ray-sensei standing behind me.
“What are you implying by that, Sensei? I’ve never done such a bad thing in my life…?”
I tried to play the good girl, but Ray-sensei just smiled suggestively.
“Well, perhaps you shouldn’t have said it that way. You want a “private room with a lock that few people can come,” though of course I would never think that the daughter of Archelaus would ever play such tricks.”
I was being listened to the whole time. Indeed, if one heard that much, I certainly sounded like someone who was trying to do something completely illegal.
However, he should also have known what we were going to do, since I had just announced that we, the members of the Golden Dawn, would be researching tools that used runes…
“Well, nothing you do will be ordinary anyway. That being said, there’s a pretty good location that might work…do you want to know about it?”
If I wasn’t mistaken, the sounded like he was willing to help.
“I’d be happy to show you a good location, but yes. If you can tell me what you’re really trying to do, I can tell you about it.”
Ray-sensei looked down at me with his bewitching eyes, with his arms crossed and the corner of his mouth raised.
I’m sorry, but even here, he seems to be revealing his past life of a yankee.
However, when I didn’t speak up, Sensei’s expression suddenly faltered as he smiled a little dumbly.
“I’m still a teacher, so I need to know what you’re doing. You may not be the type who slacks off, but there’s a good chance that you’ll do something dangerous. I won’t be able to protect you if that happens, will I?”
I’m not sure what this is, this overflowing receptiveness.
After the winter vacation, he seems to have become more like a reliable teacher?
I was inadvertently tied up and almost confided everything to him, but I couldn’t tell him the whole truth about the Tarots or Archeo script, so I felt bad and decided to tell him a mixture of truth and lies.
In other words, I told him the same thing I told the leaders of the Golden Dawn Gang.
I emphasized that the ancient characters were similar to runes.
Sensei’s face tightened slightly, but he agreed to help me.
“Haa…I just knew you were about to do something abnormal. I’m glad I asked…Well, I promised, so I’ll tell you. The first place I’d recommend is what’s commonly known as the abandoned tower. It’s actually called the Material Tower.”
“The abandoned tower!?”
The moment I heard the name, Arthur, who was listening to the story, screamed.
Some of the members of the group who had been listening to the conversation behind me were also scared.
I hadn’t heard the name before, but Yulena told me quietly.
“The abandoned tower is one of the towers on the outskirts of the academy grounds. It’s not really abandoned, but just old. However, there are rumors that it’s haunted, so no one goes near it.”
Apparently, it was a place where there were rumors about “ghosts of the school buildings”, which was very common in schools.
I wasn’t a fan of ghosts, but I did love to know about scary occult stories, so I was very curious about it…however, unfortunately, it was going to be difficult to do activities there because the children, led by the fearful Arthur, were already half-crying.
It’s not because I’m scared, okay? Not at all.
I would investigate this again and ask the teacher if there was anything else we could do.
“Is it no good? You can’t use the upper floors, but the basement is spacious and really private, so I’d recommend it.”
“Hmmm…It’s tempting, but it has to be a completely closed room…”
“How secretive do you want to be?…In that case, there’s plan 2. I’ll show you around now.”
I followed the teacher as he walked away, and instead of the new school building area, we came to a stone area that had originally been a detached palace.
“Actually, there were a few empty rooms in the former palace area because the rooms were old and half-finished. I asked the headmistress to temporarily hold one of the rooms, so I will offer it to you.”
“You mean you’re holding onto it…so that you can lend it to us?”
Has he been working on this for a while? If that’s the case, then it seems that the exchange we just had was only to find out the details of our activities.
“I wanted to make sure I knew what you were doing and where you were going. Of course, the headmistress and I will have keys as well as you, and we will come and check on you regularly. Don’t try to monopolize the room and do anything crazy!”
Sensei spoke with a bit of mischievousness in his voice. I replied, “Of course,” and thanked him for his cooperation.
However, I was a little curious as to why he would go this far.
Then, perhaps sensing this, Sensei started speaking with a nostalgic look on his face.
T/N: There’s something important in that abandoned tower, I just know it…

One thought on “Chapter 160: Ray-sensei’s Cooperation”
Thanks for the chapter~!
Oh well… Ray-sensei will probably discover about the tarots soon enough… at least he seems to be reliable. … maybe?
