The Deadly Sins Sorcerer of Magic Academy
Mahou Gakuen no Taizai Majutsushi
Arc 1 Admission to Royal Magic Academy
Three days had passed since the turmoil in the forest.
Julis was freed from his Ira sorcery, and Caesar rushed to Julis and his friends immediately afterward.
In his right hand, he had Joseph, another lecturer, by the scruff of the neck…… and it seemed that he was one of the wicked.
Then Anastasia and the others seemed to have been asked a lot of questions about what happened there, but that was a story that Julis didn’t know────
Julis was currently lying in bed in the infirmary.
Although there was no noticeable injury, the recoil from Ira was great, and when he finally woke up after two consecutive days of unconsciousness, he was in severe pain all over his body. Even Julis was in tears.
After three days, the pain had eased, but he was still unable to move his legs, so he was still lying down like that.
“For you to sleep so comfortably like this……”
Julis raised only his upper body, and patted Cecilia’s head who was sleeping using Julis’ thigh as a pillow while sitting on a chair.
(I appreciate you taking care of me, but you shouldn’t have to sleep here…….)
Her smooth blonde hair was comfortable to stroke, and Cecilia, who slept comfortably, was cute in a way.
(……Really, Cecilia is────)
“Julis-sama, are you awake?”
As he was patting Cecilia’s head, the door to the infirmary opened and a silver-haired girl appeared.
And behind her were two strong men.
He replied, then Emilia approached closer to where Julis was. But the men behind her did not appear to be following her and were waiting at the entrance.
“You got yourself some escorts, didn’t you?”
“Yes. Although they aren’t────my exclusive knights. But after this incident, my dear father assigned some personal guards to me. We can never be sure that they will not try to target me again.”
“So be it…….”
This time it was manageable, but there was no guarantee that it would be manageable again next time. Before that, the princess should not be in any danger,────if she had some escorts assigned to her during the incident…… He thought, the country must have deeply grasped the seriousness of the situation.
“The truth is, I’d like Julis-sama to be my exclusive knight…….”
“I told you that, didn’t I? that it was impossible.”
“Fufu, you’re right.”
Emilia smiled happily.
“And, shouldn’t Cecilia have been assigned her own escort as well?”
“About that…… in case you are wondering, the country proposed it to the church,…… but Cecilia-sama herself strongly rejected it to Pope-sama,────so she doesn’t have an official escort. We have quietly assigned her some guards from the country and the church, but we have not told her about them.”
“Hey, Cecilia, What the h*ll are you doing?”
Julis lightly pinched Cecilia’s cheek as she slept. Still, Cecilia didn’t seem to wake up, only to nuzzle her face.
(I guess I’ll have to watch her for a little longer……. Well, rather than watch her being somewhere, it’s a bit of a relief……maybe?)
Still, Julis was determined to go with Cecilia to see the Pope and ask the Pope to let him tag along.
“May I tell you what had happened?”
Emilia got up from the chair she was sitting in and sat on the bed where Julis was lying on the opposite side of Cecilia.
“……why are you sitting on the bed?”
“Oh my? I just thought this one looked more comfortable, that’s all.”
Emilia laughed mischievously.
“The first, it was the wicked who caused this uproar.”
Emilia immediately returned to her serious expression. Julis, too, tightened his expression a little in response.
“The lecturer, Joseph…… then, the man who appeared before us──── these two are the wicked men who entered the academy. Only Joseph is currently in custody…… and from now on, we will interrogate him and make him spit out information. Well, after that, it will definitely be an execution.”
Julis was surprised by Emilia’s statement.
He had not expected that the lecturer would be one of those wicked.
However, there was a part of him that was convinced. If Joseph was one of the wicked, Caesar must have certainly obstructed him.
Why didn’t he come immediately? That very question was resolved.
“Byrne-sama was apparently injected with a factor that the wicked used to create a sacrificing vessel, and he seemed to have lost his ego and gone berserk.”
“……it was gone berserk, huh? Even if he was berserk, he tried to harm the princess, so you can’t just conclude by saying, “Yes, it can’t be helped”, can you?”
“That’s indeed right. He was banished from the duke’s house, and he was punished with labor in a remote area. ────It seems that the trial did not take the measure of execution, taking into account that he was not conscious …… and that he was not a 100% perpetrator. ────But for some reason, he still hasn’t woken up yet.”
Emilia looked at Julis with a glare. And Julis was also pouring cold sweat from his back.
(……Oh no, I forgot to return it to normal.)
When Julis incapacitated Byrne, he took away Byrne’s rights using Avaritia.
The right couldn’t be returned to Byrne unless Julis himself returned it to him────
(The right to keep Byrne’s consciousness …… I return it, I’m sorry.)
Secretly, Julis returned the right to Byrne.
“And, since none among the wicked who showed up this time were my former exclusive knights,──── Therefore, you’d better be on your guard in the future,…… including Cecilia-sama.”
“…… Roger that.”
Julis replied a little heavily, stroking Cecilia on the head.
The academy and the kingdom were blamed for this incident.
Both from the Church and from other countries. It was because they had put Cecilia, the saintess, in danger.
From now on, the kingdom was being backbitten, but even so, it seemed that the worst was avoided. The other countries had already said that it was strange…… for the saintess to be in the kingdom, but the saintess herself has stubbornly refused,──── and thus Cecilia had been able to remain in the country.
“And as a princess, I would like to give an order to Julis-sama────Do not use the power to turn into that demonic beast in the future. The power was way too dreadful…… so if you can’t control it, we as a country can’t just leave it there. But I…… that, don’t wish to impose a collar on you.”
“…… No, Emilia is right. This is one that really shouldn’t be used,──── so I’ll make sure it’s controllable and I won’t use it in the future.”
This time, thanks to Cecilia, they managed to avoid causing any damage. Although Musée stopped him last time, they did not know what will happen next time.
If no one could stop him,──── the country would be severely damaged.
Therefore, Emilia, as a princess, gave an order, though she did not mention it to anyone.
It was because she knew this that Julis took those words very seriously.
“I’m sorry for all the trouble I’ve caused to you…….”
Julis bowed his head.
It was that he, just like Byrne, had gone berserk.
Julis’ Ira made him lose his ego.
Because of this, he had no memory of that time, and when he found himself on the bed────he understood what he had done and the trouble he had caused, but he could not remember them all.
But he still caused trouble,──── and he bowed to Anastasia and the others who came to visit him yesterday, so Julis bowed to Emilia as well.
“I am not bothered by it. Julis-sama was protecting me,──── I am very grateful for it, and I don’t consider it trouble ”
“Didn’t everyone give you the same reply? “Do not mind it”……right.”
“…… Well yeah.”
Indeed, the other day when Julis bowed his head, they said the same thing.
“Don’t sweat it, we’re buddies, right.”, “You’ve been helped me before, so we’re even.”, ‘It’s not like I’m particularly bothered, okay.”
(I’ve been blessed with good friends…….)
That made Julis uncharacteristically happy, and once again warmed Julis’ heart.
“I heard that there will be a reward from the country and the church…… Please be looking forward to it.”
Emilia got up and turned her back on Julis because she couldn’t talk for too long.
“…… Thank you very much for saving me. At that time…… I was very happy. I will personally return this favor as well.”
With a slight blush on her cheeks, Emilia muttered those words without even turning her head to face Julis.
The words reached Julis’ ears, but before he could reply, Emilia had left the infirmary.
Silence reigned in the infirmary.
The wind blowing through the air caressed Julis’ cheeks and ruffled Cecilia’s hair as she slept.
(At that moment…… strangely enough, I heard Cecilia’s voice.)
Julis recalled as he strokes Cecilia’s head.
When he was swallowed by Ira, Julis heard Cecilia’s voice in his ears, when he should have had no memory, no ego, no consciousness.
It strangely resonated in Julis’ heart, and he felt as if his own heart had been wrapped in warmth.
(Cecilia…… supported me, didn’t she……)
He didn’t even know what she said.
Still, he understood that it was Cecilia’s voice, it was Cecilia’s warmth…… The Julis at that very moment could tell.
He didn’t know if it was because it was Cecilia or because…… she was a saintess.
However, there was no black emotion anywhere within Julis now like there was then.
Julis stroked Cecilia’s head.
Slowly and gently, to express his gratitude to her. ────
“You saved me again, didn’t you……?”
Julis was now freed of the lingering misery that pervades his heart since Cecilia’s arrival.
A pride, greed, lust, wrath, sloth, envy, gluttony person,────The girl supported him, without abandoning or leaving such him.
Once again, Julis’ heart was pounding.
Just looking at Cecilia’s face made him feel unexpectedly happy.
Yes, this must be────
“I love you, Cecilia…….”
This was a feeling that can only be had because it was Cecilia.
