Chapter 35 – Why are you suddenly joint locking me?
Without using a sword, Layla hit a kick on the boy’s back.
The boy was blown away and crashed into the ground.
Perhaps fainted, he became motionless.
The onlookers were stunned and silenced.
“Th, this’s not real, right…?”
“Kazem-san lost …?”
“I, is he really a [Classless]?”
At that moment, a voice cut through the silence.
“What are you guys doing there! A duel in the academy is not allowed!” (Alisa)
Looking back, it was Alisa who was there.
In addition, I also could see a teacher coming toward us.
“We’re in trouble, let’s run away”
“We, we’re just onlookers.”
In a hurry, the onlookers left.
I wanted to run away too, but unfortunately, the person at the center of this incident was my twin sister.
And moreover, she’s disguised as me.
In other words, everyone will think I’m the culprit.
What the hell are you exactly doing this timeeeeeeeeee?
“Layla-san, what’s going on?” (Celes)
“! Ce, Celes-oneechan……!?” (Ark)
Th, this’s bad!
If this continues, Celestia-san will think that I am a violent person who loves fight a duel……!
I’ve never met Celestia-san since I entered the academy as “Ark”.
It would be terrible if this is how we meet again after we met for the first time four years ago
“O, Onee-chan! Umm, that is…” (Ark)
I tried to distract Celestia-san’s attention in a hurry, but Alisa-san interrupted there.
“Your Highness, it’s a duel. It seemed that the students of the martial arts department were having a duel here.” (Alisa)
“A duel……” (Celes)
Celestia-san’s gaze is directed toward the unconscious boy.
Furthermore, to Layla disguised as me, who was right next to him――
“… Y, you are…..” (Celes)
Celestia-san opened her eyes wide.
“Could you be, the boy at that time…..” (Celes)
Eh, you remembered me?
Forgetting the situation for a moment, I was taken aback by her muttering.
We had only met briefly four years ago.
She remembered being helped by someone, but I thought she wouldn’t even remember my face.
But this reaction.
Hard to believe, it had been four years and she still recognized me.
No, it’s actually Layla who’s there, not me…….
How complicated this is…….
“Your Highness……?” (Alisa)
While Arisa-san was calling to her, Celestia-san was just staring straight at me (Layla) and her body slightly trembling.
And then Layla turned to look at me.
“Ah, isn’t it Celes-onee――” (Layla)
You’re about to make a mistake now!
“….Fuu, what’s the matter,…… Koneko-chan……?” (Layla) (ASW: so, now Layla has become Kaoru?? Haganai~)
Never! I absolutely never said such words!
Stop trying to impress Celestia-san with your weird character!
“…! U, ummm…. That….” (Celes)
But when Layla stared at her, Celestia-san’s usual dignified demeanor disappeared, and for some reason, she blushed and stuttered on her words several times as if in panic.
See, she’s having trouble responding, isn’t!
I’m sure she thinks I’m weird!
“P, please excuse me!” (Celes)
“Yo, Your Highness?” (Alisa)
Eventually, she turned on her heel and ran away.
I dropped my shoulders in disappointment.
Then I felt a tap on my shoulder.
I turned around and saw that it was Rikka.
“Don’t worry.” (Rikka)
“Shut up!” (Ark)
Rikka let out a sigh of astonishment.
“…… I don’t think you need to lament that, do you?” (Rikka)
It was the same night.
I was called by Layla again.
“Ark! Switch again! Wait, what are you doing? Ouucccch! Why are you suddenly joint-locking me?” (Layla)
“Ask yourself!” (Ark)
I’m not going to let you get away with this today.
I attacked Layla, who had her usual innocent smile on her face, and joint-locked her.
“It’s hurt!” (Layla)
“Where are your apologies?” (Ark)
“It hurts, you know!” (Layla)
“Where are your apologies?” (Ark)
“I, I’m sorry!” (Layla)
I let her go.
“Uuu, what the hell are you doing suddenly?” (Layla)
“You didn’t reflect on yourself, huh?” (Ark)
“I’m sorry.” (Layla)
Perhaps my anger had finally gotten through to her, Layla became unusually obedient.
“Why did you do it? Didn’t I tell you before to not fighting?” (Ark)
“That’s why I made it a duel!” (Layla)
“That’s the same!” (Ark)
“Eee. Because, because that person made fun of me so much.” (Layla)
Layla puffed up her cheeks.
I didn’t know what he said to you, but I think you should be a little more forbearance because it’s not about you.
……I am the one who will be disadvantaged as a result of your action.
“Ah, and as punishment for the duel, I’m going to be helping the teacher for a month.” (Layla)
“Then we’ll switch after that, okay?” (Ark)
“It’s a pain in the ass.” (Layla)
Well, I’m afraid to let Layla take over my work any longer.
Let’s just put up with helping the teacher.
I’m more worried about Celestia-san.
I talked to her a little bit afterward, but she was kind of absent-minded the whole time.
Was it shocked her so much that I was in a duel…?
Actually, it was Layla, not me.
I wish I could say that, but then people would know that we had switched and that would make it worse.
“Don’t worry.” (Layla)
“Whose fault is it you think it is ……?” (Ark)
