The Villainess Is Changing Her Role To A BroCon - Chapter 37
It was such a childish way of getting back at him that Alexei couldn’t help but to start laughing out loud. To make it easier for his sister, Alexei even lowered his head. In the end, the revenge ended up not being effective at all.
…Just 10 seconds of ruffling his hair was enough to make me feel satisfied.
If anything, what I was doing felt so stupid, that I had to stop myself.
“…” Puffing up her face, Ekaterina took her hand away.
Though it’s embarrassing for someone around thirty to do this, I just felt like pouting for now.
“Have you had enough?”
Alexei asked from underneath his messed up bangs. His neon blue eyes were sparkling more brightly than usual.
Why are you so happy, why are you making such a happy expression, were your facial muscles ever able to make that expression, was it that good, weren’t you supposed to be an expressionless character, even though you’re that tall, why are you looking up at me, ah I can’t, shoot jeez!
Ekaterina extended her hand to her brother and tried to fix his hair with her fingers. Alexei narrowed his eyes.
“I’m sorry for making you worry. I won’t do something like that ever again.” – (Ekaterina)
Now that the heroine, Flora, had awakened her magical powers and cleared the event, there shouldn’t be any danger of entering the route in which magical beasts destroy the empire. Thus, there shouldn’t be any need for me to fight magical beasts anymore.
…Or so I hoped.
“But… Brother. Even if the dormitory is close by, I’m too scared of going back alone. I feel the safest when I’m right by your side. Since that’s the case, would you be willing to accompany me when I go to speak with the guards?”
After a bit, Alexei let out a sigh.
Nice, a comeback victory!
“…that’s some incredible willpower you’ve got there. Very clever of you. Fine. I’ll take you back to the dorms later.”
If an employee wants one of their requests approved, they can’t give up after one or two rejections.
You know, maybe I should’ve just used this tactic from the start.
You learn something new everyday!
Alexei couldn’t win against his sister, but aside from that, he was peerless.
A conference room at the academy that was smaller than the room Alexei used as his office was being used by the imperial guards for their questioning. When they entered, they saw that three members of the guard, along with the principal (or rather, the headmaster of the academy), and the vice-principal were on standby.
The sour look on the headmaster’s face looked as if he was berating me for fighting a magical beast alone. After all, it was a very dangerous situation for a student like me. He might be saying that due to his perspective, but the situation at that time was unavoidable for me, so please forgive me this one. Perhaps my brother knew this would happen, that’s why he wanted me to go back on my own.
Mikhail, Alexei, and Ekaterina all took turns sitting down on the sofa, and Alexei began to speak.
“I have been waiting to hear your report.”
The headmaster froze up a bit at those words.
I understand how you feel.
Brother, you know, those aren’t words a normal student would say. Those are polite words from a superior.
“Uh… A report… you say.” – (Headmaster)
“On the current state of the investigation. How the investigation is coming along, what you know about the situation, and what you don’t know at the moment. I don’t believe there’s been much progress yet. I don’t expect results at this moment, but I would like to hear about your plan of action.” – (Alexei)
He’s totally the superior in this situation…
