Arc 1 Admission to Royal Magic Academy
“Mmmm…… here is…….”
A girl’s cute voice echoed in the room.
The ceiling was unfamiliar for her.
The soft feeling on her back and the fact that there was a sheet covering her made her realize that she was lying on a bed.
Slowly, the girl got up.
She was wondering why she was lying here on a bed in an inn when she must have just been chased by high orcs through the forest. That was the first question that came to her mind.
The girl looked around to check the current situation.
The room was simple, but sheltered from the wind and rain, with a desk and chair at the end of the wall, and also————
“Move out of the way, Cecilia……! I, I must…… go to the brothel, big sises there————have been waiting for me!”
“N, no, you must not! I can’t let Julis go to that place!”
————A gray-haired boy, tears wetting his eyes, faced a blonde girl stood blocking the door.
“I have money! I’m not doing anything wrong!”
“It’s not about the money!”
“Why don’t you understand me, Cecilia? I’ve been spending all my days with a pretty girl named you————and it’s inevitable that I’ll be in agony! In the name of lust, I have to go to bis sises there to let out what I have accumulated!”
She couldn’t stop her mouth from hanging open at the sight.
(……What am I looking at?)
The boy, so full of lust, was making serious advances towards the girl in the nun’s uniform.
The girl, too, blushed at every word the boy said.
As a woman, she had some thoughts about the boy’s lines, but first she couldn’t understand why this was happening in a normal place where she was present.
“Ah, looks like she’s awoken!”
Then they both noticed the girl who had woken up.
The elf girl’s shoulders shook as their gazes turned towards her.
“U, umm …… are you two, saved me?”
“Not me, it was Julis who saved you from that pack of orcs!”
“Ah, hi, I’m Julis.”
Julis bowed his head as Cecilia introduced him.
“And I’m Cecilia Amethysta!”
Cecilia put one hand on her chest and began to introduce herself.
“Ah…… I’m Mirabelle. I don’t have a surname……”
The elven girl————Mirabelle, stepped down from the bed and introduced herself.
“Mirabelle-san, yes? What a nice name!”
“Th, thank you…….”
She’s a cheerful girl, Mirabelle thought.
Every one of Cecilia’s actions gives her a friendly impression.
(Come to think of it, Julis is the son of Viscount Anderberg, isn’t he? In addition, the name Cecilia, with the nun’s uniform peculiar to the clergy,————maybe she’s the lady saintess of the rumors?)
All of those names sounded familiar to her, and Mirabelle stiffened herself a bit.
If they really are the same as she expected, Julis and Cecilia are overwhelmingly superior to her.————Although, Elves didn’t have the influence of aristocratic society, but she felt that she must respect them.
But Mirabelle shook off the thought.
First of all, there was something she had to say.
“Thank you very much for your very big help! This debt, someday for sure I’ll repay————.”
“Hey, Cecilia ……, why am I suddenly feeling so pain? Did I do, something wrong?”
“…… You’re trying to go to that nasty shop.”
“That’s none of your business right now, is it?”
Cecilia’s lips pouted and she turned away. She still seems to be holding on to what she said earlier.
“Mirabelle…… right? Can you stop speaking so stiffly to us? It’s like I’m talking to a nobleman and it’s hard to talk.”
“B, but! Because both of you are aristocrat and lady saintess.”
“That’s why! I don’t particularly want you to give me respect because I’m a nobleman! And Cecilia also wants you to talk to her in a friendly manner————Right, Cecilia?”
“Eee…… Yes. I’m simply just a loved Saintess. I don’t like to be respected.”
As for Julis, he doesn’t think of himself as a great man.
Although he is a nobleman, he has a low rank and is aware that he is inferior to everyone else.
Cecilia, for her part, has respect for those she admires, but she doesn’t like hierarchical relationships.
When Mirabelle heard this, she thought about it.
She was about to open her mouth and say, “Even so,” but if she didn’t back down now, it might be even ruder.
So Mirabelle let out a little sigh and opened her mouth.
“All right, ……, I’ll speak more casually now.”
When she saw their happy faces, Mirabelle thought that they were strange people.
At the same time, she thought they were kind people.
“But let me say this again————Thank you for saving me……. I was really grateful.”
So, she thanked them again. This time, she said it sincerely. She expressed her true feelings.
Her voice trembled a little, perhaps because she remembered the scene from that time.
“Accept it, Julis!”
“It’s true, but you also healed her wounds.————Well, I’ll accept your gratitude.”
Mirabelle smiled with a big smile on her face.
Is it because of happiness?————At the very least, Julis was glad that he had helped her when he saw her expression.
