The Villainess Is Changing Her Role To A BroCon - Chapter 27
The training ground is just a somewhat-separated section of the school grounds, and isn’t very large. It’s the size similar to a tennis court. There’s a water fountain with an elegant sculpture, some tree bushes and flower beds, and a line of braziers. They must have been used for practicing earth, water and fire magic, which are the most common attributes. Wind is also a common attribute, but it doesn’t need any special equipment. There are many other attributes like ice, light, darkness, and thunder, and some people even possess more than one magic attribute.
This is our first practice class for Magic Control ever since our enrollment, and there are many variations of expressions amongst the students. Some look to be in high spirits, while others seemed gloomy.
Students who are accepted into the Magic Academy all possess some form of magic power, but at different levels of mastery. Practice classes allow students to show the extent of one’s magic power, so it can’t be helped that some are happy about it and some aren’t. Those with strong magic power can secure a good marriage or adoption even if they come from a moderate background or in financial difficulties, so for the second sons and third sons, or those who can’t inherit their family fortune, they are especially eager.
Which reminds me, in the historical novels I read in my previous life, there were many stories about men desperately looking to be adopted into a family via marriage. Samurai or nobles all ended up the same…
I look around while musing and notice that Flora looked a bit stiff.
“Lady Flora, may I ask what is it that is bothering you?”
I tried to hide the reason with a smile.
“Ah, your magic attribute hasn’t been determined yet.”
The heroine’s magic power is at MAX level, but her magic attribute was [?] at first.
Hearing that, the “Yes Trio” start speaking:
“Now, now, she doesn’t even know her attribute. Isn’t it wrong for her to enroll?” – (Yes Trio 1)
“That’s right, that’s right.” – (Yes Trio 2)
They said the same thing in the game…to Ekaterina the villainess.
But this Ekaterina just laughed.
Focus on the class, guys.
“The teacher said that rare magic attributes are often not determined immediately. I’m looking forward to seeing what attribute she has.” – (Ekaterina)
In the game, the player will determine the heroine’s attribute. But in this world, she probably really has some unique attributes.
“Yes, I’m also looking forward to it. But I also feel a bit scared.” – (Flora)
“That’s how it is. I have an earth attribute, the most common one, so I’m a bit jealous.” – (Ekaterina)
Flora-chan, I’m sorry. I know your attributes, but I can’t tell you. I have no choice but to shamelessly tell some harmless lie. Sorry~
But, in the game, the heroine and the Prince will join forces to bring down the demon. When I was playing the game on my smartphone, I only had to repeatedly mash the buttons to fight. But if the demon actually appears here for real, how can Flora-chan fight it, considering that she doesn’t even know her attribute?! It’s impossible!
So, hey game, let her realize her own magic power! It’s not an unreasonable request at all!
“Well then, let’s start our practice. Everyone, gather here please.”
As the class starts, I return to my senses.
At this moment—
I suddenly feel a tingling sensation on my skin.
I can sense something. I look back, not knowing what it is.
I see a shimmering like a heat haze right in front of the water fountain. I strain my eyes at it, wondering what it is.
The shimmering expands. A black flame materializes at its core and spreads wider. The atmosphere vibrates as if it was electrified, and the air — splits open.
A howl strikes my eardrums.
