The Deadly Sins Sorcerer of Magic Academy
Mahou Gakuen no Taizai Majutsushi
Arc 1 Admission to Royal Magic Academy
Emilia Lapis Lazuli
The one who appeared to Julis and the others was the third princess, Emilia Lapis Lazuli.
It was a face that all the people of this country knew. That’s why Julis and the others reflexively fell to their knees on the spot.
The cafeteria quieted down at once.
The attention they had just received became even more intense.
“Please raise your head…… I’m just another student here.”
As soon as Anastasia spoke up on behalf of the group, Julis and the others all raised their head.
It’s not clear whether it was loyalty to this country that made them kneel immediately.
“So…… what were you making a fuss about? This is a cafeteria used by everyone────Is there a good reason for that?”
“There is not…….”
Anastasia stumbled over her words.
She didn’t think she could honestly tell her, the princess, that Byrne was forcing her not to have lunch with the people here.
As a princess, she could not be bothered for such a trivial reason.
However, the person in question was different────
“My fiancée, Anastasia, and the saintess were having lunch with a hillbilly subhuman and an inept, so I was just inviting them to have lunch with me!”
(Oooh…… he said it……)
Julis’ irritation that had been building up earlier instantly cooled down when he heard Byrne’s remark.
He is an imbecile to the fullest. Not only that, he’d disgraced major figures in the country who had established peace with the elves────especially a princess, furthermore, he was insolently telling her to not disgrace her face by having lunch with Julis.
It was a very serious act that lowered your dignity as a nobleman.
(Well, regardless of that, I’ll absolutely never forgive this guy…….)
As a sorcerer who bore the name of deadly sins, his wrath was far from being quenched.
“(……Say, is Byrne-sama a complete idiot? How can he just says that to Emilia-sama?)”
“(Don’t say it, Richard……. I’m also stupid enough to lose my temper.)”
“(For his foolishness goes that extent, I respect him, dude…….)”
Julis and Richard whispered to each other.
It seemed that the foolishness of his actions had made Richard respect him in the opposite direction.
Emilia let out a loud, blatant sigh.
Byrne’s eyebrows furrowed at the sight.
“……I’m disappointed in you.”
“You should refrain from using offending words and deeds…… such as a hillbilly subhuman. That statement is something that may disrupt the peace────if you, a member of the ducal house, said it, it would be a serious problem.”
The dukes are the holders of the titles following the royalty.
Therefore, the right to speak is also high in this country, and its significance also become large.
It is true that even though they made peace, there is still discrimination against elves.
But even so, the country had promised to cooperate with each other in order to achieve mutual coexistence────and if it were to be cracked, the prestige of the country would be shattered and it would be a loss.
“And, I don’t understand what right you have to do it. Why can’t Anastasia-sama and Saintess-sama just have lunches with these people?”
“Th, that’s because they were with these inept and elf…….”
“It doesn’t matter who Anastasia-sama have lunch with…… regardless the person is inept or so on, As a duke, you must ruminate your ‘appropriate partner’ way of thinking, you know. This Academy is a place where nobility and commoners are not treated differently────There’s no way you don’t know that, right?”
In Emilia’s words, Byrne was at a loss for words.
If she, who was a princess, was to speak up this far, no matter how high Byrne’s position, he would not be able to argue her.
“I’ll be honest, but I’ve been hearing all of your conversations────it’s just too unpardonable.”
Byrne’s complexion turned pale. Naturally, his two entourages became the same way.
“I will inform the Duke of Huguenot about this. A rant against those who aspire to be great together at the academy────have some respect!”
The princess’s intimidation.
It’s something terribly rare, and sadly something that shouldn’t happen.
That’s why the position of Byrne who was subjected became bad at once.
With his actions, he had turned the princess into an enemy────maybe even the Huguenot duke’s position become worse.
“…… Damn it!”
Byrne let out one last swear word, and walked away from the scene quickly in an irritated manner.
His entourages also followed him, slumping their shoulders awkwardly.
She wanted to say something to the princess, but the atmosphere did not allow it.
Emilia, without looking at Byrne’s back, let out a sigh and moved closer to Mirabelle.
“Our noblemen have been so rude to you……. Please accept my sincere apologies.”
“Do, don’t mind! I am not worried about it!”
Mirabelle was surprised that one of the country’s princesses apologized.
It was extremely awkward for her, a timid person with a sequestered world.
“(…… Hey, why don’t you apologize to me? I’ve been humiliated here as well.)”
“(You should keep your mouth shut. Besides, you’re used to it, aren’t you?”
“(That’s not the point…….)”
Well, unlike Mirabelle, who is an elf, Julis is also a citizen of this country, and there’s absolutely no way he would bow to Julis, who is in a lower position than him.
However, it was somewhat arrogant of him to so brazenly ask Emilia, who wasn’t the one who did it, for the apology.
“……He may have grown impudent in some areas in his status as a duke. We will educate him appropriately as the one who will be responsible for this country in the future.”
“(Do you think he is still in impudent level?)”
“(No, I think that’s beyond the level of impudent.)”
“(Sshhh! You two, keep your mouth shut when the princess is talking!)”
It seemed that Julis would not be able to contain himself if he didn’t put in a little sneering.
“…… No, we don’t care that much about it, so it’s not something Princess Emilia should be concerned about.”
“(No, I really do care about it. If Mirabelle and Cecilia were to be told something like that, I would normally be upset, right? I’m actually angry right now, you know?)”
“(Ju, Julis-kun……, I’m glad for it, though, but we need to be quiet. Be, because we are definitely not supposed to talk right now.)”
Julis was certainly rude to interrupt in a whisper in front of the princess.
A person who can’t read the situation, it’s exactly who Julis is.
“I that so……. I understand. Then I will say no more.”
Emilia looked as if she wanted to say something, but then closed her mouth as if she was satisfied.
“(You said to not say anything, but you’ve been talking a lot, haven’t you? The lunch-break is almost over, I was hoping it wouldn’t be so serious────)”
“You shut up for goodness sake.”
“(Also, please don’t clutch my templeeeEEEEEEEEEES!)”
Julis’ whispered exclamation echoed throughout.
It might be unavoidable that Anastasia got frustrated by Julis, who didn’t keep his mouth shut, and grabbed his temples.
Cecilia and Mirabelle, who were watching the scene, did not try to help. It was completely Julis’s fault.
However, only Richard was holding his mouth and holding back his laughter.
“Fufu, you guys sure are very close, yes.”
Emilia, who was watching the scene, smiled happily and enviously.
Certainly, it was not the kind of behavior that a person from the duke’s family and the viscount’s family would engage in, so it might indeed be somewhat of an awkward relationship.
“Ummm…… Julis Anderberg-sama.”
While Julis was being tormented by Anastasia, Emilia spoke to Julis without hesitation.
“I apologize for the suddenness, but could I have a moment of your time today?”
Unfortunately, Julis couldn’t hear Emilia’s request very well due to the intense pain from the body strengthening magic.
