The Female Soldier Has Been Told to Infiltrate the Imperial Magic Academy - Chapter 37
Chapter 37: Folia’s Bodyguard
“Folia, that looks heavy. Let me carry it,” Razé said as she took the documents from Folia’s hand.
Folia: “Ah, but Razé-chan-”
Razé: “Physical strengthening is like my second specialty. Don’t worry.”
Actually, Razé didn’t even need to use physical strengthening to carry this amount of load. Her muscle was strong enough to handle this weight.
Razé had been busy preparing for the school festival while substituting for some of the otome game events. She recalled what had happened a few days ago and glanced at Folia on her side.
Just as expected from Lord Moldir….
Previously, she only interfered with events that could affect Carna and Ruben’s relationship. But now, she also had to become the substitute for Folia too.
The reason for this change had happened a few weeks ago.
> > >
Razé heard someone called her name and when she turned around, she saw an elegant tall man dressed in a cassock stood behind her.
Hmm. Priest’s robe in this world looks stylish, Razé thought as she looked at Zale.
Zale: “I heard that you are close with Folia.”
Razé was a bit puzzled by his words. Zale was looking at her with a probing gaze, making her felt uncomfortable. She couldn’t stand the awkward atmosphere, so she decided to mention about Folia. “Oh, I often heard stories about you from Folia. She always looks happy when she wrote the letters to you.
By the way, thank you very much for the snacks that you sent during the tournament last year. That’s Relev Stories, right? Folia is cute like an angel. The romantic candy suits her well.”
Zale suddenly turned his face away. Razé was afraid that she had made him mad. Then she saw he covered his mouth with a hand and his ears turning red. For a moment, she was surprised and then she continued to say, “I’ve noticed that Folia always touch her ring absent-mindedly.”
Zale turned to Razé with a surprised look on his face.
Razé: “Folia is so cute. It’s understandable that you’d be worried about her.”
Zale felt embarrassed with the way she was looking at him, but he quickly regained his posture.
Zale: “…Then, you should know what I’m trying to say.”
Zale: “I want you to make sure that she won’t be disturbed by people with bad intentions. Of course, I’m not asking a favor for free. I’ll help you after you graduated.”
Razé was impressed with his words. It showed how much influence he had in this society.
Razé: “I won’t need your support. Folia is my friend, so I don’t any compensation.”
Zale looked surprise, and then he muttered to himself, “Just as expected from Folia.”
The meaning behind it should be: “Just as expected from Folia, she knows how to choose friend wisely.”
And so, Razé took the responsibility as Folia’s bodyguard to keep away those guys who were trying to approach Folia.
< < <
I’m sorry, Ian-kun.
Razé knew that Ian was walking right behind them. She apologized to him in her heart while carrying the documents with Folia.
Folia’s love interests should have started to notice about her crush by now. It was easy to guess from how frequent she had been visiting the chapel lately. Razé felt sorry for those guys.
But honestly, Razé was unsure whether these guys had any feelings towards Folia since most of the romance flags were not triggered. From her observation, the one that undoubtedly has feelings for Folia was only Luca.
Ian: “Razé-san, let me carry that for you.”
Razé did purposely take over the event, but her eyes widened when Ian had called out to her.
Razé: “Oh, but-”
Ian: “I can’t let a girl carry heavy things.”
This was a standard characteristic for a love interest in an otome game. Razé was unsure whether his action was caused by the heroine presence nearby, or because of his own personality. But she was taken aback by this gentleman attitude.
He will become a good man in the future.
Razé felt that she didn’t have to worry anymore because she was sure that he would be able to meet a nice girl. Otherwise, she definitely would suffer from guilty conscience.
In that case, I’ll find a nice girl for him!
When she worked in the Military Intelligence Department before, she had made many social connections. If she put some effort on it, she would be able to find a lady that matched him well. Razé gave a cheer to Ian in her heart.
Folia: “Oh, I forgot. Razé-chan!”
Folia: “Are you free this Sunday?”
Razé: “I think so.”
Folia: “Great! Let’s go out on that day.”
Folia’s angelic smile made Razé forgotten all her worries.
Razé: “You’re not going to the chapel?”
Folia: “Oh. Hmm. It should be fine.”
Razé felt a bit surprise but didn’t think too much about it. She entered the classroom used by the Steering Committee and saw Carna clearing up some papers on her desk in a haste. Razé felt a bit curious but she assumed it was something that couldn’t be shown to Folia so she didn’t say anything about it.
Carna breathed out a sigh of relief when she saw Razé’s normal reaction. She went to Folia and whispered to her, “How was it?”
Folia: “She’s free. I’ve made promise to go out with her. It’s perfect!”
Carna: “Alright. The preparation on my side is going well too.”
Both of them looked at each other and nodded their heads.
Razé: “I’ll bring this document to Murton-sensei.”
Carna: “Thank you, Razé.”
Razé: “Don’t mention it. I’ll be back soon.”
After confirming that Razé had left, Carna took out the papers that she had hidden earlier.
Carna: “Listen everyone. We are going to celebrate Razé’s birthday this year.”
The papers were the party plan for Razé’s birthday. Razé herself had forgotten about it because her personal record was fake, but this Sunday would be Razé Granoli’s birthday.
Claude looked at the list of plans and asked, “Surprise party? You’re doing such an elaborate plan?”
Folia: “Yes. It’s to celebrate for this year and last year. We want to surprise her.”
Carna: “I didn’t know her birthday last year. By the time I found out, it had already passed.”
Carna sighed as she thought of her mistake. After the Star Festival last year, she had asked Razé about her birthday and was surprised when she found out that it had already passed.
Folia: “Razé-chan is indifferent about herself.”
Carna: “I think so too. I’m pretty sure she’s not aware how famous she is among the male students.”
Folia nodded her head when she heard Carna’s words.
Folia: “But she seemed to be aware that people are always looking at her.”
Carna: “Really? That’s a surprise.”
Folia: “Razé-chan said that those people are interested in her because she’s a scholarship student and she thought that they wanted to make connection with her for future prospects.”
Carna: “…I see.”
Carna knew that Razé had always acted aloof, so she could understand her words.
Adis entered through the door and said, “But it could be the truth, don’t you think?”
Carna felt annoyed by his words. “Maybe the original intention is like that, but Razé is cute, you know.”
As a ladies’ man, Adis wouldn’t say that Razé was not cute, but he felt that there were many pretty girls other than Razé.
Carna: “She’s hardworking and has good grades. Although she was not good at fighting, she looks cute when she holds a sword with her small figure.”
Adis assented perfunctorily as he sat looking unconcerned. He might look like a player, but he was very serious with his work. He ignored the chatting and concentrated to do his work efficiently.
Carna: “Hmm. If Razé put on some make-up, I think she would look very cute.”
Folia: “She always helps me with my make-up. It doesn’t seem like she doesn’t like make-up.”
Carna: “Hmm. She’s just being indifferent about herself.”
Carna thought for a while and then added some notes on the party plan.
Carna: “Razé will be the main star this Sunday.”
The classroom was filled with peaceful atmosphere as Carna laughed happily.
 She’s talking about gap moe. ↩
