The Second Group
“Oh, it’s already started.”
After the match was over, Julis appeared in the audience seats where the non-participating students were gathered.
He could not see Ricardo there, probably because he was being treated for an injury or undergoing a medical checkup.
And by the time Julis appeared, the match of the second group had begun in the stadium.
The echoing sounds of impact, the metallic clash of swords, and the colorful magic were fierier….. or rather more intense than Julis’s match.
[Hey…… isn’t that the guy from earlier?]
[Yea…… that’s the guy who ended that match in an instant.]
[I’ve never seen magic like that…….]
The surrounding eyes were focused on Julis. That was inevitable due to the match that had just taken place.
(A different look than before…… Yes, it’s not bad. This gaze, is not bad at all.)
Until now, there had been many gazes of contempt, but this time the gazes were more of interest and awe.
That power of Julis must have been both incomprehensible and titillating to their curiosity at the same time.
[Even though his face is ordinary…….]
(Okay, I’ve memorized your face. I’m going to strangle you later, you son of a b*tch.)
His face is ordinary──── and being told such a fact, Julis decided to punish him.
Like the stadium, this one was also intense.
Suddenly, Julis was tackled in the abdomen with a powerful tackle.
(Who the hell is it? Who the hell is that a*shole who suddenly bumped into me? What’s your problem, you still think I’m inept and attack me like a fool, huuh!)
A blue streak appeared on Julis’ forehead at the sudden attack.
“Julis, that was a good job!”
“…… I see, it was an angel attack, huh?”
It turned out that the person who attacked Julis was his beloved one.
The blue streak on his forehead disappeared.
“Julis-kun, thanks for your hard work~”
And a little further away, Mirabelle greeted Julis with a big wave.
The fact that there were five empty seats next to Mirabelle suggested that she had reserved them for Julis and Ricardo and the others to come.
“Mm mm, after all, if you’re going to praise my hard work, it must be a “thanks for your hard work” line with a cute smiley face like that……. Compared to that────”
Julis lowered her gaze.
There, the lovely Cecilia, with a question mark on her head, was hugging Julis with her hands around his waist.
The moderate softness and the faint scent of the girl’s distinctive good smell stimulated Julis.
“But, this is fine!!!”
“What are you talking about?”
A man’s situation that Cecilia didn’t understand.
So Julis sat down next to Mirabelle, patting Cecilia’s head without answering that question.
“Hmm…… how long has it been since the match started?”
“About a few minutes? The game just started a few minutes ago.”
“I see────hey hey, Cecilia? Why are you on my lap? You have an empty seat right there.”
“Because this is where I’m supposed to be!”
Ta-dah! Cecilia said as she proudly puffed out her chest so much that such a sound effect could be heard.
(Hmm…… It’s wonderful. Her moderate bulge is emphasized by puffing out her chest, and it’s really something…….)
As Julis gazed at her emphasized chest seriously, Cecilia stopped puffing out her chest and rested her head on Julis’ chest.
So Julis had no choice but to concentrate on the match to keep his “son” from running amok.
After all, Julis was lenient with Cecilia.
And when Julis started to watch the match, this time he felt something on his shoulder────
“Hey hey, Mirabelle-san, why are you resting your head on my shoulder?”
“Because this is where I’m supposed to be…….?”
“You guys don’t think you’re going to be tolerated for saying that, do you?”
They said it was where they were supposed to be, but it was done for the first time today. Such a complaint came to Julis’ mind.
But then again, what man wouldn’t be pleased to have a pretty girl sticking close to him?
(Cecilia doesn’t seem to be in the mood to complain either……. is this okay?)
Cecilia’s expression indicated that she didn’t mind.
Then, this is okay, right? In the end, he decided to leave Mirabelle alone, depending on the vague answer to the question.
[Hey…… he’s got those cute little girls clinging to him…….]
[Bastard…… Let’s kill him…… even if he’s strong…… I can’t suppress this furious feeling.]
[To destroy the evidence, his corpse might as well be bathed in fire magic.]
Julis turned around involuntarily at the killing intent that pierced him from behind.
There, he saw male students with tears of blood, biting their lips and looking at Julis with a fiendish look on their faces────
The fact that Julis was then called to the back of the school building by dozens of male students, regardless of their grades, was another story.
Time passed, and the match for the second group was coming to an end.
There were less than ten participants left standing, and Anastasia and Emilia were there.
[O Blue Thorns!]
Emilia thrust her favorite rod into the ground and bound the two students approaching in front of her with ice thorns. Beautiful roses were blooming on the thorns, which were glistening in the reflection of the light.
Then, Anastasia, seizing the opportunity, struck her rapier into their vital spots, instantly taking away the opponent’s consciousness. Of course, since she used an unsharpened blade, she didn’t injure them.
“Are they collaborating?”
Mirabelle, watching the scene, wondered.
“No, they’re not. Here’s the proof────.”
Julis pointed a finger and there was a figure that was quickly shoving Emilia.
“There happened to be those who were stuck nearby. I think that’s why she was dealing with them. Anastasia is merciless when it comes to competition, and she’s greedy for victory…….”
Julis looked at Anastasia.
The fact that they had known each other for a long time was not a joke. Therefore, he knew a little bit about how Anastasia was moving and thinking.
Anastasia, with her rapier at the ready, attempted to sneak into Emilia’s bosom.
As a swordsman, Anastasia would be at a disadvantage to Emilia, who was a magician.
Therefore, Emilia cast a strengthening spell on her own body and stepped back as far as she could.
[O Blue Swarms!]
Countless blue ice spheres appeared above Anastasia’s head.
Then, they all fell on Anastasia at once.
An advanced ice magic bared its fangs at Anastasia.
However, Anastasia avoided them all. She ran on the ground faster than the falling spheres.
Eventually, leaving behind the sphere that obstructed her path, Anastasia dived into Emilia’s bosom.
After all, it was apparent that no matter how much physical strengthening she had done, there would be a difference between the physical strengthening of a magician and that of a swordsman.
Besides, Anastasia was a person who put her physical strength into her agility and fought by putting her opponents at her mercy with her speed.
A non-specialized person would never be able to beat a specialized person.
Anastasia stood in front of Emilia, bent down, and thrusts her rapier into her side.
Emilia, now defenseless, would have no recourse but to fall prey to Anastasia’s attack.
[Fufu, there is no reason for me not to be wary of Anastasia-sama.]
A large pillar of ice was created at Emilia’s feet.
It extended toward Anastasia and then struck her directly in the jaw with great force.
A dull sound echoed.
The blow made her red hair flutter. It was enough to knock Anastasia down, and Anastasia wordlessly dropped her rapier and flopped down on the ground.
[Now the most troublesome opponent is gone…… Fufu, the one standing next to Julis-sama is me.]
It was only a momentary blip, but the match between Emilia and Anastasia came to an end, with Emilia’s victory.
