Otome Game no Heroine de Saikyou Survival [WN] - Chapter 111.2
“I agreed to the adoption. There are some aspects of aristocratic etiquette that I still lack, so Sera will train me again, including the combat aspect, right?”
“I’m glad that persuading you was less difficult than I thought it would be, although with Viro also participating, the rewards would be troubling to calculate… To be honest, I’m uncertain if I have what it takes to teach you the combat aspect, but I’m going to cram you with “common sense” and “etiquette” as a noblewoman in the remaining six months, so please be prepared.”
So, for the next six months, I was to undergo training at Sera’s mansion to “imitate” a noble daughter.
I wondered if I should stay away from Elena, but the royal castle was in turmoil because of the other “protectors,” so it was better for me to stay out of sight of other royalty at this time.
Sera had some work to do at the palace, so she couldn’t come here as often, but she told me that it was part of my training to be called [Young Lady] by the maids of this mansion and to be taken care of by them.
Theo left for the southern part of the kingdom to prepare to move as an attendant for the daughter he would be escorting, so the next time I would see him would be at the academy.
I also had other things to do in addition to my training. I met with Viro, who was also going undercover at the same academy, and took over his information sources and some other resources at the same time.
I also needed to do some other combat training, and while Viro or Sera would be a good partner for me as a Rank 4, I needed a Rank 5 partner to validate [Iron Rose].
“My lady, Master Feld of the Rainbow Sword is here.”
“Please let him through.”
Training to be a young lady involved not only correcting one’s behaviour, but also one’s speech.
Feld’s eyes widened slightly when I greeted him in a simple but aristocratic gown.
“…You really do look like a young lady.”
I said, tilting my head, and Feld’s gaze swam around slightly as he looked at me. Perhaps he was not used to seeing me like this, since I was wearing light make-up applied by a maid who was older than I.
Feld was my combat training partner. I wouldn’t be able to put my [Iron Rose] skills to the test if it wasn’t someone on his level.
We discuss recent developments over tea in the reception room before heading to the training hall
“Are we going to do this while wearing that flimsy outfit?”
“We are not allowed to wear armor in the academy, so I’ll have to consider fighting in a dress, Feld…if you cut corners, you’ll ‘die’.”
Feld laughed, his fangs bared, as he replied, not lightly, but seriously.
“Come at me.”
My hair changed from light pink to a grayish-iron color like scorched ashes as I activated the Combat Skill.
Status doubling–I rushed at him as soon as the effect of the [Physical Enhancement] level 10 activated and jumped over Feld to attack him with a hidden weapon out of my [Shadow Storage].
“Aria! Don’t make it flutter!”
“I don’t care.”
Feld, who had been equipped with light leather armor and a light long sword equipment that emphasizes speed, was able to respond to my speed as well.
Although I should have been able to beat him in terms of speed, the reason I was still unable to attack him was probably due to Feld’s combination of skill, experience, and “intuition”.
It was partly due to Feld’s knowledge of my abilities, but even at Rank 5, unlike demons who rely on their status, fighting a “human” opponent with wisdom and skill was different.
As we continued the mock battle, switching not only to [Iron Rose] but also to my normal state, we both felt exhausted and exhaled, even if it was only for a short period of time.
“Phew…let’s leave it at that…Aria’s already at the limit of her magic power, right?”
“I guess so.”
As I thought, the biggest problem with [Iron Rose] was its active duration. As long as it consumed magic power, there would always be a time limit. I attempted to cover it with a gradual-recovery magic potion, but discovered that if I used it while magic power was being recovered in my body, the flow of the magical element became a little out of control.
It might have had its uses, but we decided that it would be too dangerous to use it in battle, as it was too unstable.
When I saw Feld’s large back walking ahead, I put my hand on his shoulder naturally from behind him and jumped while climbing up to place my body on top of his shoulder, causing Feld to stop walking.
“Aria…don’t act like a child.”
I asked back, and he let out a slight sigh as he repositioned me to make it easier for him to carry me.
“…You’re still a ‘child’, huh?”
Ever since Feld had lifted me up in that dungeon, I had grown fond of the wide field of vision, and though I thought it was childish of me, climbing on Feld’s shoulders like this had become a habit of mine.
It was not that I was fine with anyone as long as they were tall, but… why was Feld the only one I was comfortable with?
The time passed, the season turned to autumn, I turned 12 years old, and finally winter came. The time for Elena and I to enter the Academy of Magic had arrived.
