In the morning of next day after I defeated bloodthirsty murderers in labyrinth, I woke up… and I wasn’t alone.
“Good morning, Sirius-sama.” (Emilia)
After what has happened yesterday, I thought she would turn meek but… she appears to act normally. No, I would rather say she got ‘Power Up’.
“Sirius-sama, here is the change of clothes. Please have a wet towel because your hair is messy. Since the breakfast has been made, I’ll prepare them if you want to eat.” (Emilia)
When I got up, the morning house chores had all been completed. Since this is a world without watch, it is the usual time to get up after I confirm the time based on the sun’s position.
“Emilia… when did you come here?” (Sirius)
“Just for a while ago. I was hugged by Sirius-sama yesterday and I was sleeping happily until this morning. So, I had enough sleep and my physical condition is perfect.”
A little while ago and… to think of completing all house chores in about one hour earlier huh? Oh well, I also had enough sleep, so I won’t say anything.
Her cheeks reddened and she seems to be agonized with happiness, her complexion is good according to her says, her glossy tail moves in line with her body and even any bad condition can’t be seen at all. When I made a gesture to examine her, just to be sure, Emilia came over before me with speed similar to blurry moment. She came with serious speed in a short distance.
“Are you calling me?” (Emilia)
Although I merely called her, she smiled and laughed delightfully, and she was waiting for my words while wagging her tail. When I extended my hand while remain sitting on the bed, given that she presume and lower her head, I put my hand on her head and invoked [Scan].
“…There is no anomaly.” (Sirius)
“Of course. It feels like I can do anything right now.” (Emilia)
She continued wagging her tail while humming. She was on top of the happiness.
Yesterday, if she wasn’t able to recover herself, I was thinking to kiss her forehead in order to cheer her up. I had disagreeable feeling so I stopped and did not do it, and it might be a correct decision. If I did it… I wonder what on earth will happen to this child?
After that, Emilia and I went to kitchen and we were eating the prepared breakfast. If I was careless, it would be natural that a wonderful meal won’t be prepared but I was relieved when normal meal came out.
Today, there is no morning practice since Emilia is still recovering. So, while having breakfast leisurely, I hear a sound from the entrance and Reese barges into Diamond Cottage.
“Sirius-san! Emilia is not in sickroom… she’s here after all.” (Reese)
““Good morning, Reese.”” (Sirius/Emilia)
“Good morning! That’s not it! You sneaked away from sickroom without permission! I was surprised when I went there in the early of morning and you weren’t there!” (Reese)
“I left a note in advance though.” (Emilia)
“That is not the problem. Haa… I’m glad that you seem to be alright.” (Reese)
Reese was holding her head but when she knows that Emilia was safe, she reverted back to her usual kind expression.
Reese sat down on the chair that became fixed seating for her in two years, then the meals that’s on the table was put on a plate and it was placed in front of her. While Emilia prepared soup in front of her, Reese joined her hands. She also imitated us by pressing her hands together before meal. She was not only able to use fork and spoon but also became used to chopsticks.
“It seems to be delicious today too. Itadakimasu.” (Reese)
Her manner of eating is refined extraordinarily. Her basis starts with eating soup without making a sound and then eating a meal absolutely without wide open mouth. Nevertheless, she has equal food intake with Reus who eat a lot and she eats it up in no time easily. She is refined to the end but her eating speed is amazing. It is not unusual for single lump of meat steak to be gone after all. I understand Reus eating a lot but since she who eats same amount as him and never seen to gain weight, I wonder where does that food intake goes?
“…Errr, I am wondering what’s with that intense look.” (Reese)
“Aah, sorry. I think Reese really seems to enjoy eating.” (Sirius)
“Because… it is delicious.” (Reese)
“Thank you. It is worth to make it.” (Emilia)
When I resumed eating meal, a sound could be heard coming from entrance again, and the kitchen’s door was thrown open.
“Aniki, Nee-chan, good morn–…ouch!” (Reus)
…Reus, you too huh.
Reus appeared while still being wrapped by bandage around his body. He held his chest and was in pain but why this sibling doesn’t behave, I wonder?
“Hey, Reus. It’s not good if you are not sleeping properly in the sickroom.” (Emilia)
“You are not convincing even if you say that.” (Reese)
“It’s boring to lie down only and the amount of sickroom’s meal in not enough.” (Reus)
“It’s not that I don’t understand it but I wanted you to sleep properly.” (Sirius)
Reus also sat down at his regular seating, and then he started to eat the prepared breakfast. Although he is still recuperating, this child really eats a lot. Two portions of meals have been consumed already.
“Delicious! Nee-chan, is there another helping?” (Reus)
“There are more since I made a lot.” (Emilia)
“Haa…it’s pointless to say anything by now. Emilia, I would like some more.” (Reese)
“Yes, eat a lot, alright.” (Emilia)
Although they were almost killed the day before, we were same as usual.
I put bread into my mouth while looking at my disciples spent their days happily.
It was practice time when the breakfast is finished but today, but since I intend to change plan, I waited for suitable time after finished eating and I gathered their attention.
“Starting from today, everyday, you guys are prohibited from fighting with exception of training as well as emergency. Therefore, I won’t accept any objection.” (Sirius)
“I wonder is it because we are recuperating?” (Emilia)
“That’s right. I made tough decision yesterday. Your body is in bad condition so even if you practice, it will backfire. I also intend to be moderate today, so you guys can do whatever you like today.” (Sirius)
“If that’s the case Aniki, what are you doing this morning?” (Reus)
I think and say to Reus. Since we have finished eating breakfast, there is nearly one hour until we go to school. When I think about what should we do… a frying pan and egg that put on the kitchen are obvious.
“…I wonder if I should make some kind of pastry.” (Sirius)
Those three leaned forward on the table and drew closer to me. Rather than that, Reus. If you’re going to complain of pain, you know you’re not supposed to do that, right?
“Ah, Aah. I’ll make an easy one for the time being. Should I make crepes?” (Sirius)
“Crepes! Sirius-sama, is there anything I can help with?” (Emilia)
“Fruit is necessary, right? I will cut fruits.” (Reese)
“I will stir anything, ouch!” (Reus)
“You sit down and hold still.” (Sirius)
As soon as they practiced making confections, the disciples bit the fresh made crepes.
I went to school together with everyone, and then we entered the classroom. As soon as we sat on the chairs, the classmates gathered (around us). So far, that was the usual situation but the mood was really different today.
“Hey, you were involved with incident in the labyrinth, am I right? What happened?” (??)
“Aniki!? What’s with those injuries! How did it happened!?” (Reus’ underlings)
“What on earth did come out?! Is it not the injury too severe because of golem’s doing?
The yesterday incident was already widely known and the classmates also were all concerned.
It looks like the rumor is spreading but the thing about ‘Dragon’s Fresh Blood’ doesn’t seem to spread out. Besides, whatever incident that we involved in the labyrinth… that is the only thing that was not spread out.
To be honest, since I was told not to talk in detail by headmaster when I was about to go home (yesterday), I told the disciples not to talk about the terrible murderers but what does the school intend to do about this situation?
“Good morning, Sirius-kun. I’m not sure what was going on but more than anything, you are safe.” (Mark)
“Good morning, Mark. I can’t talk too much (about it) but yeah, everyone is safe.” (Sirius)
“You can’t talk too much huh. Something happened after all.” (Mark)
“I think there will be announcement soon. Leaving that aside…there are guests.” (Mark)
Those guest were Mark’s companion who went to school together with him. So, when the classroom’s door opened, the said persons appeared.
“Excuse me.” (Hart)
“Excuse me.” (Merluza)
It’s Hart and Merluza.
It was known that these two were the victims of yesterday’s incident. The class became quiet suddenly by their sudden appearance. While the classroom became quiet suddenly, they walked leisurely and stood in front Emilia and Reus.
“Is there something?” (Emilia)
“It looks like there is something!” (Reus)
“Reus, I have something to say to you.” (Hart)
“Emilia, I have something to say to you.” (Merluza)
While they were glaring at each other in this critical situation, those two nobles lowered their heads calmly.
“I don’t remember since I was pushed away by you but I heard that I was saved by your help. I would like to express my sincere gratitude.” (Hart)
“Emilia, I was saved by your magic. I really appreciate it.” (Merluza)
“”Haaa…”” (Emilia & Reus)
The nobles gave their thanks while displaying dignity of nobles to the extent of hiding their (previous) self-important behavior. With the entirely different gap compared to yesterday, the siblings couldn’t hide their bewilderment and they merely gave vague reply.
“I have expressed my gratitude properly. Well then, please excuse me.” (Hart)
“I wanted to seize power a bit more (in match) if possible. Well then, good bye.” (Merluza)
After the two nobles conveyed the things that should be conveyed, they went out from the classroom. The classroom was in extremely indescribable situation and when Reus who were quiet muttered in a low voice, everyone was looking here.
“…What was all that about, Aniki?” (Reus)
“It was exactly as they said. Those two merely came to express their gratitude. They were belligerent yesterday but they are just upright nobles who respond to favor.” (Sirius)
“It is somewhat complicated.” (??)
“I guess so. Nevertheless, what I would to say is…you guys didn’t make any mistake. That’s all.” (Sirius)
When I continuously pat their heads lightly, whether they understand or not, they were laughing . In any case, for whatever it is, I am proud with their conduct.
The classroom became quiet because of those two nobles but when the classroom gradually regained noise, Magna-sensei turned up. When I noticed, it looks like the time for lesson to start.
“Good morning. Since I have something to tell everyone at once, please calm down.” (Magna)
Magna-sensei looked entire classroom and he nodded after confirming that the class became quiet. While he looked on the entire class, his eyes and mine met and that wasn’t my imagination.
“Everyone probably has heard about the incident happened in the labyrinth yesterday. Since the full detailed explanation will be explained in auditorium from afternoon, please do not spread uncertain rumor. And, Sirius-kun.” (Magna)
“Yes, what is it?” (Sirius)
“The headmaster seems want to hear the story of (what happened in) the labyrinth. It is only you, please go and see headmaster now.” (Magna)
I was a little bit surprised when I was called suddenly. Then, Emilia and Reus stood up hurriedly to protest.
“Magna-sensei! Why only Sirius-sama?” (Emilia)
“Yeah, as for the incidents, they should hear it from us who are the victims.” (Reus)
“Although the objection is reasonable but aren’t you guys Sirius-kun’s servants? Since Sirius-kun as a master is here, he should do the explaining, you know.” (Magna)
There was truth from what Magna-sensei says, right? The siblings who were my servants couldn’t say anything. Thus, they seemed to be lonely after I went out from the classroom.
Then, I came alone in front of headmaster’s office.
It is different room compared to every (other) senseis’ because it has high grade double leaf doors that gives intimidating feeling. That being the case, it’s no use to feel hesitated at the door, so I knocked the door confidently since I was called.
“Sirius Teacher (is here).” (Sirius)
“Please come in.” (Rodwell)
I opened the magnificent door and the headmaster was sitting in front of high quality desk that can be seen in previous existence’s president office.
An innocent young man who doesn’t even feel slightest curiosity was called to come here by Rodwell.
“So, you came. I didn’t prepare tea but have a seat on that sofa.” (Rodwell)
“…Please excuse me.” (Sirius)
I sat down on the recommended sofa before I can say anything and Rodwell also sit on the opposite side. We didn’t begun a conversation immediately, we were just staring each other in silence.
Such awkward atmosphere stayed for a while, and then Rodwell opened his mouth at last.
“…Let’s get to main point without delay. The purpose of my call is to inform you the result of yesterday since I wanted to hear things from you.” (Rodwell)
“Things that you want to hear?” (Sirius)
“Since I will explain about that after this, I will inform the results first. Yesterday, the two survivors from ‘Dragon’s Fresh Blood’; Goraon the leader and Romeos the human male were secured in the labyrinth and they were brought in, a short while after you came back. Unfortunately, the remaining two died and they were sent to morgue.” (Rodwell)
“It’s a matter of interrogation result, right?” (Sirius)
“Yes, it is. There were various result came out after interrogating them but…” (Rodwell)
It seemed that Rodwell also participated in that interrogation, and he was going to explain the results in detail.
First, it was carried out on Romeos.
He was brought into small room and had woken up already. He was handcuffed and being made to sit in front of Rodwell and others.
Across the desk, the interrogation seemed to have begun with Rodwell and several other interrogators.
“Well then, your name is Romeos, right? Why did you guys come here?” (Rodwell)
“To kill people of course. Since it is fun and there is no other way.” (Romeos)
“Ugh.. to answer calmly. If that’s the case, how did you guys came here? Or who invited (you guys)?” (??)
“We were invited by old man who calls himself Gregory. He acted normally and it didn’t seem worth to kill him but he said that we can kill beastkin and a lot of people.” (Romeos)
“Then, why were you able to enter the labyrinth without getting checked?” (??)
“A letter of introduction from Gregory was held. It was a useful thing and it was useful in various places.” (Romeos)
After that, there were some other questions and he answered them without any hesitation. Gregory’s letter of introduction is seized, so it can be used as evidence after evidence.
“The way your answer is extremely smooth, don’t you bastard regret on your action?” (??)
“Regret? I am merely acting instinctively, so I don’t think I did bad things. That is why I don’t feel necessary to hide it.” (Romeos)
All members were getting angry and shocked by Romeos’ words but while Rodwell sent sharp gaze, he seemed to question him.
“It is… not necessary to hide huh? Well then, let me ask you last question. You guys were attacked by whom?” (Rodwell)
Romeos who was full of confidence seemed to changed suddenly during that time. He doesn’t calm down strangely while sweating a lot and it seems that his eyes are not focused.
After that, no matter how many times they asked who defeated them and Romeos finally snap.
“Stop being irresponsible! Why I must explain to you guys!” (Romeos)
“But, the opponent that defeated people like you guys must be strong person. It is because we are not aware with such information.” (Rodwell)
“So you don’t know huh. I never want to see…such monster again.” (Romeos)
“I can see you to come across something that befits a monster. Or maybe…the opponent’s appearance is not what you expect? For example…someone like a child?” (Rodwell)
“Headmaster, no matter how you look at it, a child is not possible.” The truth is your golems were running wild and they were beating by it, something like that right?” (??)
“If that’s the case, then it will be a problem, I think. Oh, how about that Romeos-san? You are agitating strangely, could it really be a child…” (Rodwell)
“Talking about a child in front of me is __!” (Romeos) (TLN: It’s censored in raw)
He stands up while screaming, then he begins invoking magic and… he seems to die.
And then, the interrogation was carried out on Goraon next. When he was captured, he seemed to talk a lot before but he didn’t seem to talk at all now.
The reason is…
“I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry…” (Goraon)
It seemed that there was no other reaction other than staring at nothing while holding his head and apologizing continuously.
“He is also hopeless. This guy was tougher when he was discovered in the labyrinth. We are hearing nothing but apologies, so there is no way to have conversation.” (Rodwell)
“This is troublesome. Despite of hearing several things that we want to know.” (??)
“What kind of shock is given to him? Is it as good as headmaster’s magic?” (??)
“Headmaster!? Are you the headmaster!?” (Goraon)
When Goraon noticed that the person in front of him was the headmaster, his eyes seemed woke up and he raised his face. He tried to get near Rodwell but he fell down awkwardly since he was tied. Was he still wanted to talk with Rodwell? He was trying to get closer even by crawling.
“Yes, I am the headmaster…so what is it?” (Rodwell)
“I don’t want to say anything but to the person who is the headmaster! Come now, please ask question quick! If you’re not quick…if you’re not quick…aargh, aaaargh!” (Goraon)
“W-well then…” (Rodwell)
Rodwell wondered why he became confused and weird but Goraon answered the related questions obediently even though he scared.
He told everything such as the number of people that he had killed since coming to this town and the measures (to deal) after that, his past career and his ability. Despite of having no more question, he started to talk things like favorite food, how many times he went to toilet every day. He let out everything as if he was asking for his life desperately.
“That is enough already. It is because you don’t have to talk anymore.” (Rodwell)
“Are you done hearing what you want to know? If that’s the case, quickly…take me quickly to that guy!” (Goraon)
“Who is that guy?” (Rodwell)
“I don’t know! It is not possible to say, you know! Since you ask, that guy is…quickly!” (Goraon)
“Headmaster, it’s dangerous. Please step back!” (??)
“Shut up! Take me quickly too…aargh…aarrghhhh!” (Goraon)
And then, Goraon died.
“Did both of them…died?” (Sirius)
“Yes but I planned from the beginning to take care (of them) under the pretence of self-defense because there is no reason to let them staying alive if we want to find an evidence. But since Romeos can use magic, he was handcuffed in advance but…it’s not me who dealt with him.” (Rodwell)
“Well then, was it the interrogation officer?” (Sirius)
“It was not that. Romeos was shouting and his head exploded suddenly during that time. Then he merely became lump of flesh. Goraon was also the same. He absolutely hadn’t received any external attack.” (Rodwell)
“Their head exploded? What a merciless treatment.” (Sirius)
Rodwell glared like he wants to kill while letting out bloodlust at me who was trying to act dumb.
“What did you do…to them?” (Rodwell)
“With… what?” (Sirius)
“Let me say from my experience and intuition. The total annihilation of ‘Dragon’s Fresh Blood’ was…because of Sirius-kun, right?” (Rodwell)
Was I being suspected after all? My ‘Battle Switch’ activated automatically in response to the bloodlust. While I started up ‘Multi Task’, I received Rodwell’s overpowering pressure right in front of me.
“What is the problem, I wonder?” (Sirius)
(The possibility of bluffing is high. Nevertheless, think of the possibility of worst case scenario. Preparing [Boost].) (Multi Task-1) (TLN: The conversation is in bracket)
(Confirming the position of the disciples by [Search]. The response is in the classroom.) (Multi Task-2)
“The wall of this room contains special ore that absorbs noise. So as for the sound, it won’t be heard from outside, you know.
“…In short, as for secret talk or a little disturbance, it won’t be noticeable?” (Sirius)
([Boost]’s preparation is completed. Invoke at the same time as opponent’s chanting, conceal his eyes and retreat immediately after.) (Multi Task-1)
(Contact the disciples by using [Call] at the same time of battle. After escaping from the headmaster’s room, ensure the disciples to escape from school.) (Multi Task-2)
“Furthermore, I will hear you. Why did you come here? If it is to bring harm to the school, I must use force.” (Rodwell)
“I am here for the sake of getting experience and knowledge, and then…to protect and raise my disciples.” (Sirius)
(Confirming the rise of mana from the opponent. Since opening with [Impact] is obscured, [Magnum] should be considered too.) (Multi Task-1)
(There is no opponent outside. Selecting shortest escape route… Confirmed.) (Multi Task-2)
“There is no mistake in your words, right?” (Rodwell)
(Hypothesis…Completed.) (Multi Task-1)
(Hypothesis…Completed.) (Multi Task-2)
I said the last word without hesitation. Rodwell and I were staring to each other in silence. I must not turn away my eyes from here. I don’t show any gap, and as for having good faith on opponent since I had proper interaction with Rodwell.
The glaring stares for several seconds…until several minutes, then it ended with the disappearance of Rodwell’s bloodlust.
“To endure my bloodlust until now, it seems for certain that you were the one who defeated them.” (Rodwell)
“…Yes, I am. I defeated them. Nevertheless, to test by letting blood thirst out until now, you’re such mean person.” (Sirius)
I decided to admit it honestly. It is troublesome to keep deceiving and hiding it further, and if in this case of this person is similar as an influential person, I judged this to be alright.
I cancelled ‘Multi Task’ and I’m relief because a battle didn’t happen. I grew fond of the school after two years and I’m glad I don’t have to run away from town or throwing everything away except the disciples.
“I’m sorry to surprise you but I would like to take this opportunity to hear your real intention. It contributes to the fact that, Sirius-kun and I understood well that there is no reason to be hostile to each other.” (Rodwell)
“That is nice but aren’t you a bit pushy? If one (of us) is careless, there’s probably it would become a battle, you know?” (Sirius)
“There is no other way. I suspected your strength for long time but I did not think that you defeated dragonkin and advanced level adventurers easily. To think about danger this time is not even amusing.” (Rodwell)
“Well… since it has gone too far this time.” (Sirius)
It is quite reasonable.
The disciples could be injured, that was the reason I went to viciously beating them without thinking.
“You have power but it seems you never use it wrongly, and you emphasize propriety. This is my personal opinion. I want to build favorable relationship with Sirius-kun.” (Rodwell)
“Me too. Therefore, I have a request. It is about my true strength…” (Sirius)
“Yes, I understand.With that such strength, I think this will become trouble situation if nobles aware about it. In regards to Sirius-kun, I will not let anyone know.” (Rodwell)
“I’m grateful for your consideration.” (Sirius)
“No no, since this incident is because of my clumsiness, so it’s natural. Besides, if I’m not in good terms with you, I won’t receive cake from now on, right?” (Rodwell)
“Is that your real intention!?” (Sirius)
Anyway, with the end of the “Dragon’s Fresh Blood’ group, it seems the problem concerning my true strength is settled and I feel relieved.
There were other things that needed to be informed but it seemed I couldn’t proceed with the matters because Rodwell started to make a bitter face.
“Thus, the mastermind of this incident, Gregory…to our regret, we were not able to find him.” (Rodwell)
“Did he run away?” (Sirius)
“That’s right. When we broke into his house, the person himself had disappeared along with some evidence too. While I said to entrust this to us, that plight…is a shame.” (Rodwell)
“No, the headmaster’s correspondence is not wrong. Nevertheless, that guy is fast at running away.” (Sirius)
“He is not only outstanding at magic but also running away. However, he has become a wanted man with the testimony that I got from yesterday’s interrogation and the evidence found in his house. Wanted poster will be posted by the end of the day, and he probably can’t make any conspicuous action at least in Elysion.” (Rodwell)
“What will become to people who are close to him and his students? And then, how about the two nobles that were lead by the murderer into labyrinth?” (Sirius)
Although Hart and Merluza’s proud manner were seen, the admirable aspect also can be seen when they were apologizing. Since they were those who did nothing, I feel sorry for them to get involved with the adults who were acting rashly.
“The students who were under Gregory’s wings will be put under the guidance of substitute teacher. Then, Hart-kun and Merluza-kun were judged as innocent. Those two know nothing and they were forced by Gregory to take (the murderers in). In short, all faults lies on Gregory.” (Rodwell)
“You did an unpleasant face, you know.” (Sirius)
“Really? By the way, those two are still young and they might be tempted by others. So, I think it is unreasonable to give them heavy punishment. They lose their trusted servant and they probably learned a lot from this incident.” (Rodwell)
We were all safe but those nobles lose three (servants) each. There probably dispute among households and I think this incident is (something like) strong poison became strong medicine.
”Nevertheless, I’m saved. That is because the interrogation of Goraon and Romeos finished smoothly. It’s all thanks to you.” (Rodwell)
“I only beat them up. Even so, did I overdo this by killing them?” (Sirius)
“No, I would rather dispose than accept them. I’m (really) saved. By the way, if I was the only interrogator, they would already be done.” (Rodwell)
Rodwell was laughing with unpleasant face again.
As expected when you become a headmaster, you won’t be able to stand at the top without doing more or less bad things?
“They are dead but the (result of) report is there and it will be informed. Gregory will be secured definitely since it is scheduled to announce his death after disposing him.
“That is really bad.” (Sirius)
“I’ll accept that as a compliment. By the way Sirius-kun, what did you do (in order) to give decisive blow to the remaining two (killers)?” (Rodwell)
That is probably the matter about Goraon’s and Romeos’ heads being exploded. Although it doesn’t happen in front of us, it is an ability to blow up opponent’s head in long distant. What a terrible skill. Perhaps, Rodwell’s speech is justified but…
“It is a secret. I won’t be able to do it unless I touch the subject and since I don’t have plan to use it other than to enemy similar like a killer, please don’t ask me (about it).” (Sirius)
“…It can’t be helped then. I believe your personality. Although I don’t hear (anything), that ability has dangerous power. I think this goes without saying but please be careful.” (Rodwell)
He withdrew surprising easily. If I’m going to explain that, it is nothing but the usual [Impact]. My [Impact] can be invoked with a time lag. Besides, it is possible to be activated according to other person’s magic power. This time, it is nothing more than invoking with an arbitrary timing and the target of the practice is the (killers) head.
Then, how did I aim it and put it into operation?
In regards to Romeos, I set the trigger [Impact] to be activated when he tries to use magic. For Goraon, I gave a hint to him in advance, if the person himself tries to talk to anyone but the headmaster, it will become a switch to trigger his own magical power. This won’t affect to those who have strong will but it is a useful skill for weakened opponent. It was one of the things that I’ve been thought in previous existence.
Since there is time delay, there won’t be any evidence and it is an ideal skill for assassination. If this is previous era, I’m just going to set small size bomb.
I discussed several other results and the interview between me and the headmaster was finished.
Emilia and Reus jumped in order to cling to me the moment I returned to the classroom and it was another angry story towards Magna-sensei.
All students were gathered in auditorium during afternoon where the case was revealed at that time.
It was a matter of terrible killers appeared in the school’s labyrinth and there were victims.
Those killers were invited by Gregory. He is a wanted man and he has disappeared.
I thought the headmaster is very firm person by exposing the school scandal but based on his skilful inducement, he was spearheading everything towards Gregory. But still, his inducement is splendid. Being 400 years old is not just a show.
Every crime was put together on Gregory, as the headmaster was continuously preaching about taking lesson from this incident, on the stage.
Meanwhile, Reus who was closed, whispered softly to me.
“Aniki, I wonder what happened to the remaining survivors of ‘Dragon’s Fresh Blood’?” (Reus)
“Well. Maybe, we won’t be able to see them for second time.” (Sirius)
“Is that so? To keep losing is something that unpleasant” (Reus)
“I understand the feeling of wanting to retort back but instead of thinking about cheap ways to win, I think it would be better if you think of ways to win against me.” (Sirius)
“Is that so? As one would expect of Aniki!” (Reus)
The truth is, I wanted to have them (the killers) defeated by the hands of the disciples but even their personality is too dangerous to let it go.
Of course, I was angry too when those disciples were harmed but I judged that it would give negative influenced when dealing with them, so I decided to completely handled the matter.
Although they seems going to be dealt with even if I don’t do it but this time, I ‘cleaned’ it by my own hands.
As for me being an agent, I work in shadows without standing in the center stage.
It was not possible to live splendidly and dealing with target behind the scenes like this time was everyday occurrence.
I don’t plan to tell these to disciples until necessary time comes.
It is because I don’t want to talk about it poorly.
When talking about assassination, it is similar to those terrible killers from different point of view.
This is difference whether being delighted about murder or not.
However, if it is the case to protect them, I intend to undertake any dirty work.
Even if I have reincarnated, my principle is not changing.
As a Shishou…and (this is) the way of life as a solo agent.
Although this leaves bad impression when the mastermind disappears, the case of horrific murder closed its curtain in this way.
As for result of the event, it had become difficult discussion.
