Arc 1 Admission to Royal Magic Academy
Julis won’t tolerate anyone hurting his loved ones and friends.
“So, Mirabelle-san, you’re also enrolling in the Royal Magic Academy!”
“I haven’t been accepted yet, though! And ……, does that mean that Cecilia-chan and Julis-kun are also?”
“Well, sort of. By the way, Cecilia has already been accepted.”
“No way!? That’s amazing, Cecilia-chan…….”
“In my case, I don’t need to take the entrance exam…….”
After leaving the inn they had rented to put Mirabelle on bedrest, Julis and co were now walking through the city market.
There were smiles on the faces of the people passing by, and the lively bustle of this market was evident.
They’re within the Miller territory, a few dozen kilometers away from Anderberg territory.
For the Anderberg family, this is the territory of the Duke of Miller, who they have been very good friends with.
“As expected of the saintess, I guess? So there’s such a situation, huh?”
“Eee……. I wish I could have taken that exam, though.”
“That exam would have been too much for you…….”
As a saintess, Cecilia is basically in charge of logistical support.
She heals injured members in a safe area————so she doesn’t join in the fight, but rather provide support. So, when it comes to the examinations that Julis took this time, no matter how much favor she received from the goddess, she would lose to the students who were more experienced.
…… Well, before that, Cecilia is super athletically inept.
“But if it’s Julis-kun, you’re sure to pass! After all, you’re that strong! If you take out those mouths, you’ll surely win in no time!”
“……Then, I won’t stop until I’ve devoured all of my opponent————Is that seems okay?”
“Are they really that scary……?”
Mirabelle’s cheeks twitched at Julis’s statement.
Those black things won’t stop until all part of their prey is completely devoured. If that’s the case, using it in an exam would ensure that the other students would be devoured.
She was truly glad that she was not the target.
(Eh……, but was Mirabelle there in the exam room?)
If there was an elven girl, he would have noticed.
And yet, Julis didn’t notice it at the time.
(……Maybe the exam was divided into several times)
If so, it makes sense then.
Julis immediately brushed the questions that had arisen out of his mind.
“Speaking of which, what’s Mirabelle going to do now? As for us, I think we’ll just go home…”
“Ummm…… I could go back to the elf territory, but to be honest, I’m unsure. If I get in, I’ll have to go back to the academy, so I’m thinking of staying somewhere elf-friendly.”
The Royal Magic Academy is a boarding school.
Once you are admitted, you will have to spend your school life in a room assigned to you.
It was a bit difficult for Mirabelle’s financial situation to go to the school again from the Elf territory, where transportation alone was quite expensive.
……Therefore, she tried to return to the elf territory on foot.
“Well, attitudes toward elves change from place to place…….”
Julis glanced around.
The people passing by and shopkeepers were glancing at them with curious eyes.
They must be looking at Cecilia and Mirabelle.
Elves are a race that rarely leaves their territory. That’s why they are often seen as strange once they go outside.
And in some places, they are treated badly.
This is especially true in territories ruled by noblemen who dislike other races and consider the human race supremacy.
What’s more, elves are famous for their beauty.
That’s why it’s not unusual for them to be kidnapped for money.
“Then why don’t you stay here? This is Duke Miller’s territory, which is safe and has less racism, How about it?”
“You’re right…… Yes, I think I’ll stay here!”
After listening to Julis’s suggestion, Mirabelle decided to stay here.
The only thing left to do was to find a cheap place to stay.
“So this is where we’ll say goodbye……. It’s a little sad even though we’ve become such good friends.”
“But if I pass, we can meet again! We are friends, after all!”
“Right……. Yup! You’re right! We’ll meet again!”
Cecilia’s face was sad for a moment, but then it immediately turned brighter.
For Cecilia, it is such a joy to be able to see someone she has become friends with again.
“Well then, we’ve still got time. So, let’s do some more sightseeing around————”
“You! What are you doing to me? I’m a member of the Count’s family, do you know it!”
Just as Julis was about to finish his lines, he suddenly heard a voice from the middle of the street.
When he moved his gaze curiously, he could see that the people around there were buzzing and stiffening.
“……What’s going on there, I wonder?”
“Alright, let’s go home.”
The moment Cecilia expressed her curiosity, Julis turned on his heel.
It took less than a second. It’s as fast as the Superbia spell.
“Ummm… where are you going, Julis-kun?”
“Let me go, Mirabelle……. If we don’t get out of here soon, Cecilia is going to meddle in people’s————”
“Excuse me, what’s happened here? ————Eh, what are you doing at!?”
“Cecilia-chan has gone to that noisy place, you know?”
Julis was puzzled by Cecilia’s behavior.
(Sh*t……, I couldn’t make it in time……)
Cecilia always tried to get involved whenever there is a commotion.
It is an action based on the intention of————There may be people who need help, so she must help them
Julis sighed and had no choice but to go to the source of the commotion.
And for Mirabelle, she followed along with him.
When Julis approached the source of the commotion, he found Cecilia protecting a little girl.
The little girl was crying, clutching her cup, and had a large bruise on her arm.
And there was a short and fat man standing there.
There were wet marks on his gorgeous clothes from some kind of liquid————Maybe the girl’s drink got on his clothes.
“That’s why she’s apologizing! Why can’t you just forgive her?”
“A lowly commoner soiled my clothes! How can I forgive her?”
“That doesn’t mean you can use violence against a little girl like her! The Lord will not allow it!”
The commotion grew louder and louder.
But no one but Cecilia attempted to stop him. It was the same with the knights around the short fat man.
“……that’s really scummy, raising hands to a little girl.”
“Yeah……, I agree with you.”
Julis agreed with Mirabelle’s words.
If what she said was correct, the man’s actions were certainly the worst.
However, the other party had mentioned that he was a member of the Count’s family.
If one said or did anything inappropriate, they might be punished.
That’s why Julis thought it was troublesome, but he couldn’t leave Cecilia alone, so he approached the center of the commotion.
“I’m sorry for the rude behavior of my people.”
“……Hmm? Who are you?”
“I am Viscount Anderberg’s, eldest son…… Julis Anderberg.”
Julis intervened between Cecilia and the man in order to settle the matter peacefully.
At the same time, Julis bowed his head to that unknown person.
“Hmph! What do you think you’re doing here, Son of a mere viscount!? I’m talking to her now! And I’m going to make her pay for soiling my clothes!”
“Can you please forgive her for that? This little girl didn’t mean any harm————”
“That’s nothing to do with it! She was disrespectful to me when she soiled my clothes!”
The man did not listen to Julis’s words at all.
Julis’s frustration grew as he realized how troublesome this situation was.
“This was a final decision! I, a person of the Count’s family, will punish————Mmm? Is the one there is an elf?”
The indignant man suddenly noticed Mirabelle beside Julis.
Then, with a vulgar smile on his face, he said————
“You, be my woman! Be honored that you become a woman of mine, a son of Count Gridd! And that blonde woman over there as well, be my woman!”
Mirabelle and Julis froze at the man’s sudden remark.
What is this f*cking sh*t saying out of the blue? Julis thought, but the man stares at Mirabelle with his dirty, disgusting eyes.
“You can’t refuse! Hey, you all! Hurry take the elf and the blonde woman!”
At the man’s command, the knights who had been standing around began to move.
Seeing this, a frightened voice leaked from Mirabelle’s mouth.
Julis, who is nearby, of course, caught her voice
With a violent impact sound, the short fat man left such a voice and flew to the far side.
In an instant, the short fat man disappeared from the scene. When Julis looked in the direction he flew, he saw him buried in luggage, bleeding from his nose.
“How overly pride you are to want Mirabelle, who dislike it————It’s too greedy. Do that kind of thing elsewhere.”
Meanwhile, Julis was standing irreverently where the man had been standing before.
A blue streak appeared on his forehead, clearly showing he was very angry.
“You can’t just try to mess with Cecilia and Mirabelle in front of my eyes and get out as you are————YOU FILTHY PIG!”
Julis, who invoked the sorcery of Superbia, will not tolerate those who hurt his loved ones and friends.
