The Villainess Is Changing Her Role To A BroCon - Chapter 38
“Er… Even if you ask about our plan of action…W-Well, it happened on campus grounds, so I would like you to leave it to us for now.”
“I don’t intend to be taking charge, but His Highness is currently attending the academy. How do you plan on explaining this situation to His Majesty, the emperor? If His Highness ends up having to report the situation himself, I will need to report the relevant details to His Highness. On top of that, the magical beast appeared in the class that my sister, Ekaterina, was participating in. The Ducal House of Yurinova also bears interest in the situation. Please understand that I am not inquiring about this investigation as a student, but as Duke Yurinova.”
His Highness, His Majesty, and a Ducal House.
The pressure that royals and nobles can exert is amazing.
The headmaster’s face has been drained of all colors… Being asked what he plans to report to the Emperor really must be troubling. I can sympathize.
Glaring at the headmaster and vice-headmaster who were hanging their heads, Alexei told them to raise their heads before looking at the three members of the guard.
“I apologize for taking this long to get down to business. I would like for you to provide me with some information on the appearance of the magical beasts.”
The three straightened their backs.
Oh geez. My brother’s going to remain in charge, isn’t he. Even though he’s a student, he’s the superior in this situation. That’s my big brother for you.
I noticed that Mikhail, who was sitting across from Alexei, was looking over at me while grinning.
It looked like he wanted to say, “Right?”
Ekaterina quickly turned away and focused on the guards.
What do you mean by, “Right?” But hey, a handsome guy just made eye contact with me.
Anyway, the prince had talked about the time when he was more afraid of my brother’s lectures than those from adults, right? Has my brother always been like this? But to be honest, even when he was younger, he’s always been cute. Fufu.
By the way, prince, you shouldn’t get too close to villainess.
You’re such a good kid that I don’t know what to do about you. I’m terrified of the destruction flag.
Three days after that day, the imperial guards proceeded to do a thorough search of the school grounds in case any other magical beasts were hiding about, and to check if there were any traces of a ritual, but it seemed that they weren’t able to find anything.
“The school’s investigation will continue on a reduced scale, but from now on, we will continue to investigate the existence of magic beasts in the Astra Empire. However, there’s no evidence that anyone carried the magical beasts captured in the lake area to the imperial capital. In the future, they will look into the summoning arts that are said to have existed in the Astra Empire. It seems that Yurimagna is offering full cooperation in the investigation of summoning arts.”
Alexei, who received the report made in the conference room of the school, told me. He then called Ekaterina and Flora on his way back to the dormitory to talk in the pavilion near the girls’ dormitory.
Alongside the three of them were Ivan, the servant, and Mina, the maid who insisted on staying with the young lady, even though Ivan said that Mina should wait in the dormitory.
On the day of the appearance of the Magic Beast, Mina’s cool expression was unusually distorted, and she was quietly seething in anger, saying, “I can’t believe I wasn’t there for you when you were in danger….” Since then, Mina has been like Ekaterina’s shadow, refusing to leave.
