The Villainess Is Changing Her Role To A BroCon - Chapter 35
It seems that, by calling me Ekaterina instead of Yurinova, we were able to close the gap between us in a moment.
Isn’t this situation amazing? On one hand is my brother, and on the other, the heroine. A flower in each hand, a beauty in each hand.
And in front of me is a prince.
…Though, I think the positions are swapped a bit.
Flora, isn’t it okay to be a bit more friendly to the prince? I feel like you’re looking at the prince a bit harshly.
In order for you to conquer the prince, I can’t go after him, but it’s fine.
The prince is a hunter who will chase you if you back off, and he’s the type to get fired up if there are obstacles in the way. He’s a complete carnivore.
The big brother route might have been opened up as well, so do your best, Flora!
In the otome game, the magical beast event was over as soon as it was defeated, and the heroine and her party went back to their normal lives right after.
However, just as to be expected, there was a huge uproar over at the magic academy.
Inside the school, armed guards from the imperial city rushed in and went, creating a heavy atmosphere. It seemed they were checking to see if there were any more magical beasts that may be hiding on the campus, why a magical beast suddenly appeared, and if they could discover any clues as to why they appeared.
Classes were all cancelled and students were all sent back to the dorms and were instructed not to go outside. Yet, to Ekaterina who witnessed the appearance of the beast, as well as Alexei and Mikhail, who confronted it directly, they were asked to provide information.
Flora, however, was taken away from the group to have her magical attributes re-examined.
This is what transpired between Ekaterina and Alexei when they were going to be questioned by the guards.
“I’ll go ahead and speak to the guards on your behalf. You should first head back to the dorms and rest up. It’s the first time you’ve used that much magic, isn’t it? You must be plenty tired.”
Hearing Alexei say that, Ekaterina’s eyes widened in surprise.
“No, my dear brother. I’m completely fine. The only one who was there when the magic beast appeared was me. I need to let them know exactly what I saw.”
I want to tell them myself because I want to find out why and how the beast appeared there. If I relay the information through my brother, the information is bound to be distorted. However, Alexei shook his head.
“No. Your health was never that good in the first place. What are you going to do if you collapse again? Have more self-awareness. Take better care of your body.”
Um, could you remove “weak constitution” from my character setting already? The reason I actually collapsed is actually different…but I can’t really divulge to him what the actual reason is, so…
“Brother… In order to make sure something like this doesn’t happen again, I believe it is an important duty of mine to cooperate with the investigation. If I were to rest without helping the case to reach its appropriate conclusion, the name of the Ducal House of Yurinova would be tarnished.”
The moment I brought up the pride of the three ducal houses, Alexei’s eyes softened a bit.
“You’ve been honorable enough, Ekaterina. You stood up against the beast in order to allow your classmates to escape. You’ve shown plenty of courage and spirit. I am very proud of my noble sister, who has lived up to the name of Yurinova. And that’s why you should go back and rest.”
Alexei’s voice was stern.
“You did well. That’s true. Yet at the same time, you also acted very recklessly. You DO understand that, right?”
