The World of Otome Games is Tough For Mobs Vol 2 Chapter 1

Chapter 1The Queen

In preparation for the school festival the next day, there were students holding signboards advertising their exhibit .

“Alright, I’ll work hard as well!”

Livia, holding a handmade signboard, walked in her usual way that differed from the students in the academy .

She was promoting Leon’s cafe .

Leon and the others were busy with preparations . Daniel and Raymond were running around making purchases, and Anjie was the representative for the first year girls .

She was busy since she had work to do in the executive committee as well .

The only one who could advertise was Livia .

While she was walking in the courtyard, there were also several boys who were similarly holding signboards and promoting their exhibit .

They then noticed Livia .

“Huh? You’re the honor student, right?”

Livia panicked a bit and answered the voice calling out to her .

“R, right . Um, I’m advertising a cafe . ”

The boys began to talk with her while smiling .

Livia, who had been on alert, slightly lowered her guard .

“So there’s a cafe over there? We’re setting up a stall, so please come visit when you want to eat . We’ll provide service . ”

“It’s just things like crepes, though . We’re suffering from overdrafts, so we need to give it our all to earn money . ”

“I head that there were lot of cafes, so your group should do its best . ”

Once the group of three returned to resume their work, Livia calmed down .

(What a relief . I don’t know what I would’ve done if they had bad intentions . )

Livia was given special permission to enroll in the academy, but she herself was not a n.o.ble .

From the view of the people around her, Livia was an outsider . Due to that, she had been the victim of bullying in the past .

She once again walked around to advertise, and then stumbled across a group of girls .

“Excuse me!”

However, unlike the boys──the girls gave her a very cold glare .

They were a group of three girls who seemed to be from the advanced cla.s.s, judging by the fact that there were exclusive servants following them .

She called out to them since they were chatting while sitting on a bench, but they took a very bad att.i.tude .

“What does the honor student want? We’re busy . ”

“I, I’m advertising our cafe . ”

Livia summoned her courage and promoted Leon’s cafe .

The girls sneered as if looking down on her .

“Don’t tell me that it’s that Baltfault’s cafe? There’s no way we would go . Are you perhaps getting c.o.c.ky just because those guys back there took a liking to you? Don’t get the wrong idea when only a few guys fawn over you . Lowly commoner . ”

Even though she didn’t like being called a commoner by them, Livia felt that there was a barrier between them and her .

The other two girls intervened .

“Stop . This girl is that duke woman’s favorite . ”

“It’s best not to get involved . If Baltfault gets angry, your household might be in danger . ”

The group of three girls left with their servants after the two calmed down the third and dragged her away .

Livia was a bit saddened, but shook her head .

“Alright, I’ll move to the next location!”

She was a bit gloomy, but she still had Anjie──and Leon . She was not as lonely as she had been when she just entered the academy and had no acquaintances .

(It’ll be fine . ──I have those two, after all . )

She had those two . Though, that also meant she only had two people with her .

As she continued her advertising, the boys turned out to be relatively kind towards her .

What happened so far was unbelievable for Livia .

However, the girls were still cold towards her .

A majority of the girls left on seeing Livia’s face .

Despite being in low spirits, Livia soon brought out her willingness to promote Leon’s cafe .

“You’re doing a cafe? Oh, so you’re giving out free tickets . Do you still have one?”

“Y, yes!”

──When she turned around, a girl called out to her with a smile .

The girl, who she handed a free ticket for a set of tea and sweets to, had beautiful long navy blue hair . Livia was envious of her slender figure, and the way she stood seemed dignified as well .

“You’re the honor student, right?”

“Right . ”

“I see . I’m Cara──’Cara Fou Wein’ . ” I’m the second daughter of a semi-baron household, and I’m enrolled in the regular cla.s.s . ”

The lessons differed between the advanced cla.s.s and the regular cla.s.s .

Though they acted together during events, they usually worked in separate ways .

Due to that, this was pretty much their first meeting, even if they may have pa.s.sed by each other in the past .

Livia was delighted that the other party introduced herself, and so she politely explained the location of the cafe .

“My name is Livia──Olivia . We’re setting up a cafe for the school festival, so by all means, please do come!”

Upon which──

“That’s also where Julian’s cafe is, right?”

Livia dropped her shoulders and felt down .

The cafe belonging to Julian’s group was a powerful rival for Leon .

“That’s right . Leon’s also troubled by it . ”

“Hmm~, you’re quite close with the Baron Baltfault . ”

Livia was taken aback when hearing Leon being called the Baron Baltfault .

(M, maybe I’m acting a little overfamiliar towards him?)

Leon didn’t care about it, but it didn’t change the positions held between n.o.bles and commoners . Livia knew that there were students who didn’t like the thought of Leon and her being more friendly than necessary .

However, Cara seemed delighted .

“These are just rumors, but I heard that he might be a kind person . ”

“Huh?”

“After all, there’s nothing for a baron to gain by being with a commoner . Ah, I’m not trying to say that it’s bad for you to be with him . It’s just that he might be kinder than others think . ”

Livia was happy after hearing Cara’s words .

It seemed to her that Leon was being recognized .

“R, right! Leon is a kind person . He’s kind, strong, and a really reliable person . He sometimes ends up going too far, but everyone misunderstandings him . ”

It was doubtful whether Leon was truly being misunderstood, but Livia saw Leon as a knight to long for .

He was her ideal knight who was kind, strong, and would protect another .

“I, I see . How nice . ”

Livia smiled in satisfaction towards Cara, who seemed to be acting uncertain .

“Right . I feel like I made the right choice coming to this academy because of Leon──and Anjie . ”

“By Anjie──you must mean Anjelica, the daughter of a duke household . ”

Cara then asked Livia a question .

“Hey, would you be able to talk with barons during the school festival?”

“I think I can . ”

“I see──in that case, could you introduce me to some barons? I’d like you to mediate the process . ”

“Introduce you? I don’t think that’s necessary, but if I’m able to be of service, then I suppose I can . ”

Even though Livia was curious about what she meant by mediating, Livia nodded with a smile .

“Thank you . I will definitely show up in front of you again, so I’ll be in your care when that time comes . ”

──Cara left after saying that .

Livia waved her hand without thinking about the matter too deeply .

It was the day of the school festival .

Fireworks lifted off into the sky above the academy to signify its beginning .

White smoke drifted in the sky before disappearing .

The guests were mainly those involved with n.o.bility .

There were women who had missed the days of when they were students, and had brought along their husbands, children──and their lovers .

It was quite the strange sight .

Guests were entering the school gate one after another, but there was one woman watching the commotion .

She had platinum blond long hair .

She was a woman with blue irises and slightly drooping eyes that conveyed a gentle appearance .

At first glance, she appeared to be a woman in her twenties .

She wore a dress that was fastened to her waist and went up to her ankles, emphasizing the outline of her body .

She had woman-like features and a slim waist .

She was woman who had a glamorous figure, but left a gentle and tender impression .

She looked at the academy lined with general guests who seemed delighted .

“Oh, they seem to be having fun . There are many stalls out . ”

She wasn’t addressing anyone in particular .

However, a guard dressed as one of the common female guests replied to her .

To the people around them, it didn’t look like the two were having a conversation .

“──My queen, it’s not the time for playing around . If you wanted to watch the school festival, wouldn’t preparing a formal visit have sufficed?”

The queen, “Milaine Rafua Holfault”, had a fascinating smile that could change the mood of a room into a gentler one .

As a woman, Milaine was Julian’s genuine mother, and the queen of the Holfault Kingdom .

“It would be boring if we did it that way . I need to give a firm warning towards the baron who made a fool out of my cute Julian . ”

Several guards dressed as ordinary guests were deployed around her .

The guard nearest to her sighed .

“If you give us an order, then we’ll──”

Milaine made a soft smile .

“I want to confirm something with my own eyes . I wonder what kind of child he is . I’m really looking forward to it . ”

Queen Milaine chuckled, and made a request to the guard .

“So, I’d like to call one person to guide me . ──Anjie . Could you bring Anjelica to me?”

When the guard disappeared into the crowd of people right then and there, Milaine smiled while opening a pamphlet that students were handing out .

“──I look forward to it, Baron Baltfault . ”

Milaine, hiding a slightly eerie smile behind the pamphlet, looked at the stalls lined up near the school entrance in order to pa.s.s the time until Anjie would arrive .

 

What was going on?

I felt a slight chill just then .

It must have been my imagination . My sense of perception must have been out of touch .

I shifted gears and issued instructions to everyone while striking my hands .

Today was the opening day of the school festival .

The preparations for my cafe went perfectly .

“Aright, it’s the first day of the school festival . Give it all you’ve got, fellas . Also, you two ladies shouldn’t forget to take a proper break and enjoy the school festival . ”

Once I said that, Daniel and Raymond gave a boorish complaint .

The two were in charge of the kitchen behind the curtains .

“Do you really expect us to work the whole time?”

“We demand you make this a part-time job, then . ”

In contrast, the girls seemed tense .

“Anjie, I’m nervous . ”

“I too am inexperienced with something like a cafe . However, I think it’ll be a bit fun, so──”

When I saw the two waitresses seemingly having fun chatting, the door opened and a bell installed near it rang .

I made my best smile and faced the guest .

“Welcome to──”

“Anjelica, you’ve been called by the executive committee . ”

I thought it was a customer, but it was a busy teacher who came to summon Anjie .

Anjie tilted her head .

“They have business with me?”

“Yes, they said it was urgent . Please head to the main office soon . ”

The teacher went away, and left towards wherever they were going next .

Anjie was troubled .

“Sorry . I’ll take care of this business quickly and come back . ”

We had set up a mood that had gotten everyone psyched, and yet she got summoned soon afterwards .

How pitiful it must have been for Anjie .

Livia clenched her fist .

“It’ll be fine! I’ll do my best until you come back, Anjie!”

Seeing Livia’s determination made her seem a bit divine to me somehow .

I wanted a photograph of her raising her hands into the air to cheer everyone on .

I’ll ask Luxon for it later .

Anjie let out a smile . With that smile, she started heading out .

Anjie let out a smile . With that smile, she started heading out .

“In that case, I’ll also do my best to come back here as soon as possible . Leon, don’t do anything too rash . ”

In this case, she meant not to do anything cruel towards the customers .

She somehow came to the conclusion that I was going to do that .

“Do you not have any faith in me?”

Anjie laughed .

“You overdo things too quickly . I’ll be back . ”

Anjie was no longer in the cafe .

Livia was surprised at what she saw past the door .

“H, huh? Leon, I can kind of see a line being made . ”

What a coincidence .

I could also see one .

There was a long line leading towards the neighboring cla.s.sroom .

“My Queen, I’ll be troubled if you say something that absurd . ”

The one who Anjie was meeting while wearing a maid uniform turned out to be Milaine, who seemed to be simple-mindedly enjoying the school festival .

Milaine apologized to Anjie by saying “My apologies . ”

“However, please bear with my selfishness for today . It was quite tough for me as well to bring myself here and ask something from you . It’s about that baron you’ve been keeping your eye on . ”

When hearing that, Anjie went silent .

Milaine hugged Anjie while enjoying the atmosphere of the school festival .

“This is my first time at a school festival! Also, it’s been a long time since I’ve seen you in a maid dress, Anjie . I’m only used to seeing it since you were studying under me in the past . ”

“I, I’m very grateful for the many things that happened back then . ”

When Anjie was studying manners through apprenticeship at the royal palace, she was practically Milaine’s attendant .

Though, she made many blunders as a young child at that time .

She was more of a child back then compared to how she was now, so she had a fierce personality and many extreme sides to her .

(Recalling those days is embarra.s.sing . )

When she was very young, she didn’t understand the world, took the wrong att.i.tude, and caused all sorts of trouble for Milaine .

Her embarra.s.sing memories having resurged, Anjie averted her gaze away from Milaine . Milaine seemed delighted seeing Anjie like that . It appeared that she was teasing her .

(I don’t think I’ll ever be a match for this person in my entire life . )

Then, she turned her attention towards her surroundings .

Milaine’s guards monitored them while dressed as guests, blending into the school festival .

“At any rate, the academy is amazing . My motherland didn’t have one . ”

While Milaine seemed to be having fun, Anjie talked to her .

“Is that so?”

Milaine was a queen who originally came from another country, but marriage brought her to the her current one .

She would normally have a modest position, but her resourcefulness allowed her to obtain power within the royal palace .

Anjie’s formal engagement to Julian was by Milaine’s approval .

Milaine looked at Anjie’s face .

“It seems your complexion is a lot more peaceful than how it was at the t.i.tle-bestowing ceremony . You’ve definitely improved now . ”

(It seems she can easily see another’s naivety . What a frightening person . )

Anjie replied while thinking about how she was no match for this opponent .

“I’ve been enjoying my student life, after all . ”

Milaine thought for a bit and then asked a question .

“Could it perhaps be because of Leon, the one you’re meeting afterwards?”

Anjie slightly blushed and answered .

“That’s not it . Leaving that aside, did you really come here incognito just to meet Leon?”

“Of course not . Julian’s disinheritance was by his own decision, but as his parent, I’d like to at least give a word of complaint . It’s also a problem that he chose to partic.i.p.ate in the duel so quickly . However, what I don’t like was what happened . It was so cruel, I couldn’t say a word . ”

“I’m sorry about my representative . ”

What Leon did during the duel was cruel to the point that Anjie apologized for it .

He forced Julian and the others to yield using his overwhelming power, and to make matters worse, he went as far as to chastise them .

At that time, Julian was the crown prince . Someone looking down on such a person while criticizing him made the situation even worse . Normally, something like that would never happen .

Someone who did that would usually receive a large punishment .

However, on the contrary, Leon was proclaimed as a success that accomplished a great feat .

However, there was one thing .

(It seems the queen really is bearing a grudge . )

Anjie understood that even if Milaine had tolerated Leon’s actions in front of the public, she personally couldn’t forgive him . After all, Julian was Milaine’s son .

Leon had forced a bitter experience onto Julian .

Perhaps she didn’t let her emotions get the better of her .

(However, she’s definitely amazing . She’s able to suppress her emotions to such a degree . )

In addition, it remained unchanged how generous she was to pardon Leon in front of the public .

That was Milaine .

“Since he has been appointed as a knight in the kingdom, we will also have to bear responsibility for his actions from now on . That’s all I will say . ”

“Please forgive him for his harsh language . Leon can’t help it . ”

“Anjie, you’ve become kind . In the past, I had talked about how you wouldn’t listen to what I would say . Or perhaps the matter regarding Julian still affects you?”

“I can’t say for certain that it doesn’t . ”

Seeing how it was still affecting Anjie, Milaine spoke in a kind tone .

“I’ll apologize as his mother . I’m sorry, Anjie . All things considered, I wonder how that child was led astray . He never had that sort of behavior in the royal palace . ”

Milaine could say that when in he was in the royal palace, he went as far as to be on guard against women that tried to approach him .

“According to his Highness, the aura of normality from a student is pleasing for him . He also said for us to understand that . ”

Milaine was troubled when she heard that .

“I wouldn’t understand something like the normal lives of students . I’ve never been to the academy myself, after all . However, based on what I heard about the academy──it’s a cruel place . ”

The cruelty Milaine referred to was the att.i.tude of the girls .

The two could see a girl fighting in front of a stall .

“Hang on, you expect to earn money with something like this? It should be free . ”

“T, that’s going to be a problem . ”

Girls were leaving stalls run by boys while not paying .

To make matters worse, many of the girls brought sub-race slaves to coerce them .

As someone who came from a foreign country, it was a very strange sight for Milaine .

“This is really cruel . ”

“This is really cruel . ”

“How shameful . ”

The two headed towards the Leon’s cafe while looking around the school festival .

Milaine’s expression stiffened when seeing the cafe .

“So this is the location──it seems that the neighboring cafe is doing ma.s.sively well . ”

There was a cafe next door that had a long line .

In contrast, despite Leon’s cafe having guests, there wasn’t a line .

Anjie was a little puzzled .

(Perhaps we can look at his Highness’ exhibit later . No wait, since we’re travelling incognito, perhaps it would be better to avoid it? His Highness wouldn’t be able to calm down if he saw me with her . )

Milaine grabbed Anjie’s hand .

“Now, let’s go and give Leon some trouble . You’ll cooperate too, Anjie . ”

“Err, um, having me cooperate is a little unreasonable . I’m a waitress here . ”

“It’ll be fine . It’ll be fine! Just complain about the black tea being lukewarm or something like that . At least have him remake it three times . I’ll forgive him after that . ”

While Anjie thought about how there were enough troublesome guests already, the two entered the cafe to stumble upon a scene .

“The black tea is lukewarm! Remake it!”

A cup was thrown at Leon, soaking him in tea .

His clothes were quite battered and there were traces of other substances on it . At any rate, he found himself in a cruel situation .

Leon’s facial expression wasn’t visible, as he had hung his head .

Livia looked like she was going to cry .

“Leon, I’ll take care of your──”

However, Leon stopped Livia with his hand, as if telling her to step back .

Then, he faced the schoolgirls to apologize .

The other party were a group of very flashy schoolgirls and their followers .

“My apologies . I’ll go and make another one right away . ”

After saying that, when Leon crouched down to pick up the tossed cup, the girls got up and trampled on the back of his head while grinning .

Daniel and Raymond casted their eyes downward in frustration while looking at the situation from the kitchen .

Although it was cold-hearted to not help out a friend, the academy was a special environment where girls held a dominant position .

Knowing that, Leon didn’t try to look at the two, nor did he try to appeal to them .

“This really is nice . We didn’t come here for the tea leaves anyways, so we’ll take our leave . Since you’ve brought out such unappetizing tea and sweets to us, we won’t be paying, okay? Or rather, shouldn’t you be the one paying us instead?”

A girl took the heels of her leather shoes and grinded them on the back of Leon’s head . Her friends and their exclusive servants laughed at him .

While Leon was being trampled down on, he took a posture that was as if he was prostrating .

“Please pay in the future . ”

“Huh? How much money do you plan on ripping us off through? There are even girls who had to sell their exclusive servants to repay their debts! Get that into your head!”

In the first place, the debts weren’t Leon’s responsibility, it was those girls’ own circ.u.mstances that led to them selling their slaves .

In shock, Milaine couldn’t even let out a voice .

She was taken aback by the overly cruel situation .

“Huh?──Huh?”

She repeatedly looked at both Leon and Anjie, wanting an explanation of what had just happened .

 

Anjie’s body was trembling from anger .

She stepped forward and shoved away the girl that was trampling on Leon .

“Hold it, what do you think you’re doing?!”

As Anjie glared at her, a girl staggered while having her exclusive servant support her .

Leon looked up, and Anjie spoke before he could stop her .

“What bad att.i.tudes for guests . How about going home?”

When Anjie arrived, the surrounding girls were troubled, but the girl she had shoved away was smiling .

She wasn’t frightened in front of Anjie, the daughter of a duke household .

“Well, if it isn’t Anjelica, the one who his Highness Julian terminated his engagement with . What’s with that getup? Are you not embarra.s.sed as the daughter of a n.o.ble household?”

Anjie resisted the urge to click her tongue .

(The daughter of an earl household, was it? Furthermore, someone from an opposing faction──how troublesome . )

Not only was the earl daughter unfriendly towards Anjie, but was part of a hostile faction .

“What’s with that expression? Did you perhaps think that I would be afraid of you? Too bad! Right now, you’re like a──”

Thereupon, Livia stood in front of Anjie .

“Please stop this already! First you’re cruel towards Leon, and now towards Anjie──go home already!”

Anjie looked at Livia’s face .

“Livia, you──”

However, a vein appeared on the other party’s forehead .

“──Don’t you think you’re getting carried away, lowly commoner?”

“Huh?”

Livia took a step back towards those words .

“Do you think your opinion matters? Does it give you a peace of mind to get c.o.c.ky? Do you plan on being a n.o.ble? Do you think that you hold the same status as us just because you’re Anjie’s cute little pet?”

“──Pet?”

Livia made a very astonished face .

Anjie thought about how problematic this matter was .

“That’s as far as you’ll go . I will not tolerate anything above this . ”

However, the girl didn’t keep silent . She went on to talk about Anjie’s affairs .

“Did you draw closer to a commoner because your friends left you? How miserable for a duke daughter . Didn’t you say something to us at a party before in the past? You said that commoners were just numbers on a statistic . Doesn’t that mean you don’t really care much about commoners?”

Livia slowly turned towards Anjie .

“Anjie, you──”

“I, it’s not what you think . I──”

Perhaps thinking that seeing the two in a panic was a humorous sight, the girl continued .

“Commoners are not people! Do you not understand your position one bit? Everyone’s only keeping silent because you’re with a heap of trash for a knight, who only accomplished small deeds, and a duke daughter . People like you──”

Thereupon, a low voice resounded within the room .

“Shut that gaping hole you call a mouth . ”

──It was Leon .

The earl daughter glared at Leon .

“To think that you have the nerve to get c.o.c.ky . Do you know what it means to make an enemy of an earl household?”

The girl made a signal with her eyes towards her exclusive servants . The servants trampled down on Leon’s head .

“Hmph, how conceited . Milady, it seems like some thorough discipline is necessary for this man . ”

The exclusive servants gathered together and looked down on Leon while smirking .

“Hmph, how conceited . Milady, it seems like some thorough discipline is necessary for this man . ”

The exclusive servants gathered together and looked down on Leon while smirking .

Watching attentively, Milaine raised her voice while thinking about what transpired so far .

“This has gone for long enough! I can’t watch anymore . ”

Everyone’s attention gathered towards Milaine, and the girl who had been glaring at Anjie made an irritated face . The expression she made towards Milaine was not one that someone would make towards the queen of their country .

“What’s your problem, old woman?”

“O, old?!”

Anjie wanted to hold her hand over her head .

(Does this person not know the face of her own queen? Though, I suppose that this isn’t really a place where someone would expect her to show up at . )

Despite being an earl daughter, the girl’s status was modest .

She was someone who rose in status, so to speak . However, she did not rise from performing deeds, like Leon did .

She appeared to be a girl who didn’t make any appearances in the royal palace, didn’t learn manners through apprenticeship, and didn’t come to know Milaine’s face .

Although Anjie was about to warn Milaine, the queen endured it while her cheek twitched .

“I’ll pretend I didn’t hear that just now . All of you should finish paying and then leave . Aren’t you all still students at the academy? No actually, aren’t you all ashamed as n.o.bles?!”

The girls in the cafe laughed scornfully towards Milaine’s words .

They did not intend to stop in face of this person before them .

“Huh? Don’t get carried away . Do you know who I am? I’m the daughter of the Olfery earl household . Know your position! Someone throw out this old woman . ”

Once the girl ordered her exclusive servants to do so, the demi-humans surrounded Milaine .

Anjie was reaching the limits of her patience .

“All of you . Do you realize who you’re──”

Upon which, Leon’s face entered her field of view .

When he looked at Milaine and Anjie, his face gradually grew into a smile . At first he was surprised, but perhaps realizing the situation, he then seemed like he was going to have fun . His smile formed a crescent shaped like the moon, as did his eyes .

It was as if he was proclaiming that justice was going to be served .

(N, not good . Why does it have to be in this place──)

When Anjie noticed it, Leon kicked one of the servants surrounding Milaine and sent the fellow flying .

Leon strengthened his body using magic and went for an all-out attack, one that could blow away the tough body of demi-humans .

“Have a safe flight, idiot~!”

Not only the demi-humans, but the girls, Daniel, and Raymond were also astonished at his behavior .

Livia made an expression that seemed as if she didn’t know what was going on anymore .

Daniel shouted .

“A, are you an idiot?! If you lay a hand on someone’s exclusive servant──”

“It’s fine! You all should be delighted . It’s time for a fun party to begin!”

Normally, the reason why boys wouldn’t attack servants was because the girls would start hating them . Just that one reason . It was due to this that the exclusive servants were protected .

However, in this situation, Leon had an excuse to act as he did .

Leon knew the face of the queen .

He saw the face of Milaine, the queen, when he went through the t.i.tle-bestowing ceremony . Furthermore, after considering how she was standing by Anjie’s side, he was convinced that she was the queen .

“Go to h.e.l.l!”

Leon swung both of his hands downwards, like a hammer, onto another demi-human, thrusting his victim onto the the hard floor .

It seemed like he didn’t have an ounce of mercy .

The next demi-human who tried to subdue him was similarly thrown onto the floor .

Leon had beaten down three people in an instant, and then appeared in front of Milaine, as if to protect her .

“Restrain yourselves, servants! Know who this person that you’re facing is! She is the queen of the Holfault Kingdom──Milaine! Bow down before her, you haughty lot!”

This time, it was Leon who was smiling towards the earl daughter, the one who had trampled down on him, and the others . He had revealed Milaine’s true ident.i.ty .

Milaine was bewildered .

“Huh? What? How?”

When seeing how troubled Milaine seemed, Anjie covered her face with both of her hands .

“Leon──you just had to say it . ”

He had ruined her intentions of traveling incognito . He had beaten up the servants for the queen, and then tried to get the girls to bow down .

Leon intimidated the girls .

“All of you, prepare yourselves! You will have to accept what’s coming to you in order to make up for laying a hand on the queen! Don’t think that you will suffer no consequences just because you’re the daughter of an earl household!”

Having used the queen as a pretext for his actions, Leon laughed loudly . The girls stood still and didn’t move while their mouths kept opening and closing . Their faces grew pale .

Milaine grabbed Leon’s arm .

“Leon, wait . I was travelling incognito . I can’t cause an uproar in a place like this! So calm down . You’re a good child, after all . Right?”

It was a strange sight seeing an agitated Milaine trying to calm down Leon .

However, Leon didn’t listen to her .

His eyes conveyed eagerness, perhaps from the excitement .

“I’ll leave the decision to you, my queen . I, Leon, am ready to take the lead when it is time to punish these people . Now then, give the orders! Perhaps you could put their entire family to death in order to cut the problem by its roots! I await your decree! I, Leon Fou Baltfault, will do my best to defeat your opponents! To destroy them, obliterate them!”

“I said that’s enough!”

Milaine had teary eyes . Anjie sighed .

(He’s quite excited about this . I can only imagine what he has been through up until now . )

Many of the girls in the cafe who tried to hara.s.s Leon were now trembling while casting their eyes downward .

Leon’s clothes were tattered .

There were signs that he had been thrusted onto the floor many times, and the top of the table was quite dirty as well .

There was a mountain of broken porcelain in the trash can .

They had entered the cafe to get revenge on Leon .

Milaine had planned to do something similar, but she didn’t know that the girls in the academy where already going above and beyond what she was going to do, and was taken aback by it .

Leon made a loud laughter when an excuse for him to beat up the girls appeared .

“Justice will be served! I’ll trample over your homes with Arroganz!”

Milaine clung to Leon with teary eyes .

“I’m begging you, stop . I was in the wrong, forgive me!”

Livia hung her head and had a weeping face within the overly intense situation .

In addition, Daniel and Raymond had appeared from the kitchen and tied up the servants .

Furthermore, they were smiling .

“You tried to start a fight with the queen . That’s a no-no . ”

“Definitely a must-not . It’s like what Leon said, right? Justice will be served . ”

The two smiled while thinking about what they should do towards the exclusive servants who would normally look down on the boys .

(This is getting out of control . ──I need someone’s help . )

Anjie didn’t know how she could resolve the situation by herself, and was about to ask someone else for help .

Thereupon, she looked at Livia’s face and also hung her head .

(How should I speak with Livia? I, I made Livia──)The Queen

In preparation for the school festival the next day, there were students holding signboards advertising their exhibit

“Alright, I’ll work hard as well!”.

Livia, holding a handmade signboard, walked in her usual way that differed from the students in the academy

She was promoting Leon’s cafe

Leon and the others were busy with preparations . Daniel and Raymond were running around making purchases, and Anjie was the representative for the first year girls

She was busy since she had work to do in the executive committee as well

The only one who could advertise was Livia

While she was walking in the courtyard, there were also several boys who were similarly holding signboards and promoting their exhibit

They then noticed Livia

“Huh? You’re the honor student, right?”.

Livia panicked a bit and answered the voice calling out to her

“R, right . Um, I’m advertising a cafe . ”.

The boys began to talk with her while smiling

Livia, who had been on alert, slightly lowered her guard

“So there’s a cafe over there? We’re setting up a stall, so please come visit when you want to eat . We’ll provide service . ”.

“It’s just things like crepes, though . We’re suffering from overdrafts, so we need to give it our all to earn money . ”.

“I head that there were lot of cafes, so your group should do its best . ”.

Once the group of three returned to resume their work, Livia calmed down

(What a relief . I don’t know what I would’ve done if they had bad intentions . ).

Livia was given special permission to enroll in the academy, but she herself was not a n.o.ble

From the view of the people around her, Livia was an outsider . Due to that, she had been the victim of bullying in the past

She once again walked around to advertise, and then stumbled across a group of girls

“Excuse me!”.

However, unlike the boys──the girls gave her a very cold glare

They were a group of three girls who seemed to be from the advanced cla.s.s, judging by the fact that there were exclusive servants following them

She called out to them since they were chatting while sitting on a bench, but they took a very bad att.i.tude

“What does the honor student want? We’re busy . ”.

“I, I’m advertising our cafe . ”.

Livia summoned her courage and promoted Leon’s cafe

The girls sneered as if looking down on her

“Don’t tell me that it’s that Baltfault’s cafe? There’s no way we would go . Are you perhaps getting c.o.c.ky just because those guys back there took a liking to you? Don’t get the wrong idea when only a few guys fawn over you . Lowly commoner . ”.

Even though she didn’t like being called a commoner by them, Livia felt that there was a barrier between them and her

The other two girls intervened

“Stop . This girl is that duke woman’s favorite . ”.

“It’s best not to get involved . If Baltfault gets angry, your household might be in danger . ”.

The group of three girls left with their servants after the two calmed down the third and dragged her away

Livia was a bit saddened, but shook her head

“Alright, I’ll move to the next location!”.

She was a bit gloomy, but she still had Anjie──and Leon . She was not as lonely as she had been when she just entered the academy and had no acquaintances

(It’ll be fine . ──I have those two, after all . ).

She had those two . Though, that also meant she only had two people with her

As she continued her advertising, the boys turned out to be relatively kind towards her

What happened so far was unbelievable for Livia

However, the girls were still cold towards her

A majority of the girls left on seeing Livia’s face

Despite being in low spirits, Livia soon brought out her willingness to promote Leon’s cafe

“You’re doing a cafe? Oh, so you’re giving out free tickets . Do you still have one?”.

“Y, yes!”.

──When she turned around, a girl called out to her with a smile

The girl, who she handed a free ticket for a set of tea and sweets to, had beautiful long navy blue hair . Livia was envious of her slender figure, and the way she stood seemed dignified as well

“You’re the honor student, right?”.

“Right . ”.

“I see . I’m Cara──’Cara Fou Wein’ . ” I’m the second daughter of a semi-baron household, and I’m enrolled in the regular cla.s.s . ”.

The lessons differed between the advanced cla.s.s and the regular cla.s.s

Though they acted together during events, they usually worked in separate ways

Due to that, this was pretty much their first meeting, even if they may have pa.s.sed by each other in the past

Livia was delighted that the other party introduced herself, and so she politely explained the location of the cafe

“My name is Livia──Olivia . We’re setting up a cafe for the school festival, so by all means, please do come!”.

Upon which──.

“That’s also where Julian’s cafe is, right?”.

Livia dropped her shoulders and felt down

The cafe belonging to Julian’s group was a powerful rival for Leon

“That’s right . Leon’s also troubled by it . ”.

“Hmm~, you’re quite close with the Baron Baltfault . ”.

Livia was taken aback when hearing Leon being called the Baron Baltfault

(M, maybe I’m acting a little overfamiliar towards him?).

Leon didn’t care about it, but it didn’t change the positions held between n.o.bles and commoners . Livia knew that there were students who didn’t like the thought of Leon and her being more friendly than necessary

However, Cara seemed delighted

“These are just rumors, but I heard that he might be a kind person . ”.

“Huh?”.

“After all, there’s nothing for a baron to gain by being with a commoner . Ah, I’m not trying to say that it’s bad for you to be with him . It’s just that he might be kinder than others think . ”.

Livia was happy after hearing Cara’s words

It seemed to her that Leon was being recognized

“R, right! Leon is a kind person . He’s kind, strong, and a really reliable person . He sometimes ends up going too far, but everyone misunderstandings him . ”.

It was doubtful whether Leon was truly being misunderstood, but Livia saw Leon as a knight to long for

He was her ideal knight who was kind, strong, and would protect another

“I, I see . How nice . ”.

Livia smiled in satisfaction towards Cara, who seemed to be acting uncertain

“Right . I feel like I made the right choice coming to this academy because of Leon──and Anjie . ”.

“By Anjie──you must mean Anjelica, the daughter of a duke household . ”.

Cara then asked Livia a question

“Hey, would you be able to talk with barons during the school festival?”.

“I think I can . ”.

“I see──in that case, could you introduce me to some barons? I’d like you to mediate the process . ”.

“Introduce you? I don’t think that’s necessary, but if I’m able to be of service, then I suppose I can . ”.

Even though Livia was curious about what she meant by mediating, Livia nodded with a smile

“Thank you . I will definitely show up in front of you again, so I’ll be in your care when that time comes . ”.

──Cara left after saying that

Livia waved her hand without thinking about the matter too deeply

◇.

It was the day of the school festival

Fireworks lifted off into the sky above the academy to signify its beginning

White smoke drifted in the sky before disappearing

The guests were mainly those involved with n.o.bility

There were women who had missed the days of when they were students, and had brought along their husbands, children──and their lovers

It was quite the strange sight

Guests were entering the school gate one after another, but there was one woman watching the commotion

She had platinum blond long hair

She was a woman with blue irises and slightly drooping eyes that conveyed a gentle appearance

At first glance, she appeared to be a woman in her twenties

She wore a dress that was fastened to her waist and went up to her ankles, emphasizing the outline of her body

She had woman-like features and a slim waist

She was woman who had a glamorous figure, but left a gentle and tender impression

She looked at the academy lined with general guests who seemed delighted

“Oh, they seem to be having fun . There are many stalls out . ”.

She wasn’t addressing anyone in particular

However, a guard dressed as one of the common female guests replied to her

To the people around them, it didn’t look like the two were having a conversation

“──My queen, it’s not the time for playing around . If you wanted to watch the school festival, wouldn’t preparing a formal visit have sufficed?”.

The queen, “Milaine Rafua Holfault”, had a fascinating smile that could change the mood of a room into a gentler one

As a woman, Milaine was Julian’s genuine mother, and the queen of the Holfault Kingdom

“It would be boring if we did it that way . I need to give a firm warning towards the baron who made a fool out of my cute Julian . ”.

Several guards dressed as ordinary guests were deployed around her

The guard nearest to her sighed

“If you give us an order, then we’ll──”.

Milaine made a soft smile

“I want to confirm something with my own eyes . I wonder what kind of child he is . I’m really looking forward to it . ”.

Queen Milaine chuckled, and made a request to the guard

“So, I’d like to call one person to guide me . ──Anjie . Could you bring Anjelica to me?”.

When the guard disappeared into the crowd of people right then and there, Milaine smiled while opening a pamphlet that students were handing out

“──I look forward to it, Baron Baltfault . ”.

Milaine, hiding a slightly eerie smile behind the pamphlet, looked at the stalls lined up near the school entrance in order to pa.s.s the time until Anjie would arrive .  .

What was going on?.

I felt a slight chill just then

It must have been my imagination . My sense of perception must have been out of touch

I shifted gears and issued instructions to everyone while striking my hands

Today was the opening day of the school festival

The preparations for my cafe went perfectly

“Aright, it’s the first day of the school festival . Give it all you’ve got, fellas . Also, you two ladies shouldn’t forget to take a proper break and enjoy the school festival . ”.

Once I said that, Daniel and Raymond gave a boorish complaint

The two were in charge of the kitchen behind the curtains

“Do you really expect us to work the whole time?”.

“We demand you make this a part-time job, then . ”.

In contrast, the girls seemed tense

“Anjie, I’m nervous . ”.

“I too am inexperienced with something like a cafe . However, I think it’ll be a bit fun, so──”.

When I saw the two waitresses seemingly having fun chatting, the door opened and a bell installed near it rang

I made my best smile and faced the guest

“Welcome to──”.

“Anjelica, you’ve been called by the executive committee . ”.

I thought it was a customer, but it was a busy teacher who came to summon Anjie

Anjie tilted her head

“They have business with me?”.

“Yes, they said it was urgent . Please head to the main office soon . ”.

The teacher went away, and left towards wherever they were going next

Anjie was troubled

“Sorry . I’ll take care of this business quickly and come back . ”.

We had set up a mood that had gotten everyone psyched, and yet she got summoned soon afterwards

How pitiful it must have been for Anjie

Livia clenched her fist

“It’ll be fine! I’ll do my best until you come back, Anjie!”.

Seeing Livia’s determination made her seem a bit divine to me somehow

I wanted a photograph of her raising her hands into the air to cheer everyone on

I’ll ask Luxon for it later

Anjie let out a smile . With that smile, she started heading out

“In that case, I’ll also do my best to come back here as soon as possible . Leon, don’t do anything too rash . ”.

In this case, she meant not to do anything cruel towards the customers

She somehow came to the conclusion that I was going to do that

“Do you not have any faith in me?”.

Anjie laughed

“You overdo things too quickly . I’ll be back . ”.

Anjie was no longer in the cafe

Livia was surprised at what she saw past the door

“H, huh? Leon, I can kind of see a line being made . ”.

What a coincidence

I could also see one

There was a long line leading towards the neighboring cla.s.sroom

◇.

“My Queen, I’ll be troubled if you say something that absurd . ”.

The one who Anjie was meeting while wearing a maid uniform turned out to be Milaine, who seemed to be simple-mindedly enjoying the school festival

Milaine apologized to Anjie by saying “My apologies . ”.

“However, please bear with my selfishness for today . It was quite tough for me as well to bring myself here and ask something from you . It’s about that baron you’ve been keeping your eye on . ”.

When hearing that, Anjie went silent

Milaine hugged Anjie while enjoying the atmosphere of the school festival

“This is my first time at a school festival! Also, it’s been a long time since I’ve seen you in a maid dress, Anjie . I’m only used to seeing it since you were studying under me in the past . ”.

“I, I’m very grateful for the many things that happened back then . ”.

When Anjie was studying manners through apprenticeship at the royal palace, she was practically Milaine’s attendant

Though, she made many blunders as a young child at that time

She was more of a child back then compared to how she was now, so she had a fierce personality and many extreme sides to her

(Recalling those days is embarra.s.sing . ).

When she was very young, she didn’t understand the world, took the wrong att.i.tude, and caused all sorts of trouble for Milaine

Her embarra.s.sing memories having resurged, Anjie averted her gaze away from Milaine . Milaine seemed delighted seeing Anjie like that . It appeared that she was teasing her

(I don’t think I’ll ever be a match for this person in my entire life . ).

Then, she turned her attention towards her surroundings

Milaine’s guards monitored them while dressed as guests, blending into the school festival

“At any rate, the academy is amazing . My motherland didn’t have one . ”.

While Milaine seemed to be having fun, Anjie talked to her

“Is that so?”.

Milaine was a queen who originally came from another country, but marriage brought her to the her current one

She would normally have a modest position, but her resourcefulness allowed her to obtain power within the royal palace

Anjie’s formal engagement to Julian was by Milaine’s approval

Milaine looked at Anjie’s face

“It seems your complexion is a lot more peaceful than how it was at the t.i.tle-bestowing ceremony . You’ve definitely improved now . ”.

(It seems she can easily see another’s naivety . What a frightening person . ).

Anjie replied while thinking about how she was no match for this opponent

“I’ve been enjoying my student life, after all . ”.

Milaine thought for a bit and then asked a question

“Could it perhaps be because of Leon, the one you’re meeting afterwards?”.

Anjie slightly blushed and answered

“That’s not it . Leaving that aside, did you really come here incognito just to meet Leon?”.

“Of course not . Julian’s disinheritance was by his own decision, but as his parent, I’d like to at least give a word of complaint . It’s also a problem that he chose to partic.i.p.ate in the duel so quickly . However, what I don’t like was what happened . It was so cruel, I couldn’t say a word . ”.

“I’m sorry about my representative . ”.

What Leon did during the duel was cruel to the point that Anjie apologized for it

He forced Julian and the others to yield using his overwhelming power, and to make matters worse, he went as far as to chastise them

At that time, Julian was the crown prince . Someone looking down on such a person while criticizing him made the situation even worse . Normally, something like that would never happen

Someone who did that would usually receive a large punishment

However, on the contrary, Leon was proclaimed as a success that accomplished a great feat

However, there was one thing

(It seems the queen really is bearing a grudge . ).

Anjie understood that even if Milaine had tolerated Leon’s actions in front of the public, she personally couldn’t forgive him . After all, Julian was Milaine’s son

Leon had forced a bitter experience onto Julian

Perhaps she didn’t let her emotions get the better of her

(However, she’s definitely amazing . She’s able to suppress her emotions to such a degree . ).

In addition, it remained unchanged how generous she was to pardon Leon in front of the public

That was Milaine

“Since he has been appointed as a knight in the kingdom, we will also have to bear responsibility for his actions from now on . That’s all I will say . ”.

“Please forgive him for his harsh language . Leon can’t help it . ”.

“Anjie, you’ve become kind . In the past, I had talked about how you wouldn’t listen to what I would say . Or perhaps the matter regarding Julian still affects you?”.

“I can’t say for certain that it doesn’t . ”.

Seeing how it was still affecting Anjie, Milaine spoke in a kind tone

“I’ll apologize as his mother . I’m sorry, Anjie . All things considered, I wonder how that child was led astray . He never had that sort of behavior in the royal palace . ”.

Milaine could say that when in he was in the royal palace, he went as far as to be on guard against women that tried to approach him

“According to his Highness, the aura of normality from a student is pleasing for him . He also said for us to understand that . ”.

Milaine was troubled when she heard that

“I wouldn’t understand something like the normal lives of students . I’ve never been to the academy myself, after all . However, based on what I heard about the academy──it’s a cruel place . ”.

The cruelty Milaine referred to was the att.i.tude of the girls

The two could see a girl fighting in front of a stall

“Hang on, you expect to earn money with something like this? It should be free . ”.

“T, that’s going to be a problem . ”.

Girls were leaving stalls run by boys while not paying

To make matters worse, many of the girls brought sub-race slaves to coerce them

As someone who came from a foreign country, it was a very strange sight for Milaine

“This is really cruel . ”.

“How shameful . ”.

The two headed towards the Leon’s cafe while looking around the school festival

Milaine’s expression stiffened when seeing the cafe

“So this is the location──it seems that the neighboring cafe is doing ma.s.sively well . ”.

There was a cafe next door that had a long line

In contrast, despite Leon’s cafe having guests, there wasn’t a line

Anjie was a little puzzled

(Perhaps we can look at his Highness’ exhibit later . No wait, since we’re travelling incognito, perhaps it would be better to avoid it? His Highness wouldn’t be able to calm down if he saw me with her . ).

Milaine grabbed Anjie’s hand

“Now, let’s go and give Leon some trouble . You’ll cooperate too, Anjie . ”.

“Err, um, having me cooperate is a little unreasonable . I’m a waitress here . ”.

“It’ll be fine . It’ll be fine! Just complain about the black tea being lukewarm or something like that . At least have him remake it three times . I’ll forgive him after that . ”.

While Anjie thought about how there were enough troublesome guests already, the two entered the cafe to stumble upon a scene

“The black tea is lukewarm! Remake it!”.

A cup was thrown at Leon, soaking him in tea

His clothes were quite battered and there were traces of other substances on it . At any rate, he found himself in a cruel situation

Leon’s facial expression wasn’t visible, as he had hung his head

Livia looked like she was going to cry

“Leon, I’ll take care of your──”.

However, Leon stopped Livia with his hand, as if telling her to step back

Then, he faced the schoolgirls to apologize

The other party were a group of very flashy schoolgirls and their followers

“My apologies . I’ll go and make another one right away . ”.

After saying that, when Leon crouched down to pick up the tossed cup, the girls got up and trampled on the back of his head while grinning

Daniel and Raymond casted their eyes downward in frustration while looking at the situation from the kitchen

Although it was cold-hearted to not help out a friend, the academy was a special environment where girls held a dominant position

Knowing that, Leon didn’t try to look at the two, nor did he try to appeal to them

“This really is nice . We didn’t come here for the tea leaves anyways, so we’ll take our leave . Since you’ve brought out such unappetizing tea and sweets to us, we won’t be paying, okay? Or rather, shouldn’t you be the one paying us instead?”.

A girl took the heels of her leather shoes and grinded them on the back of Leon’s head . Her friends and their exclusive servants laughed at him

While Leon was being trampled down on, he took a posture that was as if he was prostrating

“Please pay in the future . ”.

“Huh? How much money do you plan on ripping us off through? There are even girls who had to sell their exclusive servants to repay their debts! Get that into your head!”.

In the first place, the debts weren’t Leon’s responsibility, it was those girls’ own circ.u.mstances that led to them selling their slaves

In shock, Milaine couldn’t even let out a voice

She was taken aback by the overly cruel situation

“Huh?──Huh?”.

She repeatedly looked at both Leon and Anjie, wanting an explanation of what had just happened .  .

Anjie’s body was trembling from anger

She stepped forward and shoved away the girl that was trampling on Leon

“Hold it, what do you think you’re doing?!”.

As Anjie glared at her, a girl staggered while having her exclusive servant support her

Leon looked up, and Anjie spoke before he could stop her

“What bad att.i.tudes for guests . How about going home?”.

When Anjie arrived, the surrounding girls were troubled, but the girl she had shoved away was smiling

She wasn’t frightened in front of Anjie, the daughter of a duke household

“Well, if it isn’t Anjelica, the one who his Highness Julian terminated his engagement with . What’s with that getup? Are you not embarra.s.sed as the daughter of a n.o.ble household?”.

Anjie resisted the urge to click her tongue

(The daughter of an earl household, was it? Furthermore, someone from an opposing faction──how troublesome . ).

Not only was the earl daughter unfriendly towards Anjie, but was part of a hostile faction

“What’s with that expression? Did you perhaps think that I would be afraid of you? Too bad! Right now, you’re like a──”.

Thereupon, Livia stood in front of Anjie

“Please stop this already! First you’re cruel towards Leon, and now towards Anjie──go home already!”.

Anjie looked at Livia’s face

“Livia, you──”.

However, a vein appeared on the other party’s forehead

“──Don’t you think you’re getting carried away, lowly commoner?”.

“Huh?”.

Livia took a step back towards those words

“Do you think your opinion matters? Does it give you a peace of mind to get c.o.c.ky? Do you plan on being a n.o.ble? Do you think that you hold the same status as us just because you’re Anjie’s cute little pet?”.

“──Pet?”.

Livia made a very astonished face

Anjie thought about how problematic this matter was

“That’s as far as you’ll go . I will not tolerate anything above this . ”.

However, the girl didn’t keep silent . She went on to talk about Anjie’s affairs

“Did you draw closer to a commoner because your friends left you? How miserable for a duke daughter . Didn’t you say something to us at a party before in the past? You said that commoners were just numbers on a statistic . Doesn’t that mean you don’t really care much about commoners?”.

Livia slowly turned towards Anjie

“Anjie, you──”.

“I, it’s not what you think . I──”.

Perhaps thinking that seeing the two in a panic was a humorous sight, the girl continued

“Commoners are not people! Do you not understand your position one bit? Everyone’s only keeping silent because you’re with a heap of trash for a knight, who only accomplished small deeds, and a duke daughter . People like you──”.

Thereupon, a low voice resounded within the room

“Shut that gaping hole you call a mouth . ”.

──It was Leon

The earl daughter glared at Leon

“To think that you have the nerve to get c.o.c.ky . Do you know what it means to make an enemy of an earl household?”.

The girl made a signal with her eyes towards her exclusive servants . The servants trampled down on Leon’s head

“Hmph, how conceited . Milady, it seems like some thorough discipline is necessary for this man . ”.

The exclusive servants gathered together and looked down on Leon while smirking

Watching attentively, Milaine raised her voice while thinking about what transpired so far

“This has gone for long enough! I can’t watch anymore . ”.

Everyone’s attention gathered towards Milaine, and the girl who had been glaring at Anjie made an irritated face . The expression she made towards Milaine was not one that someone would make towards the queen of their country

“What’s your problem, old woman?”.

“O, old?!”.

Anjie wanted to hold her hand over her head

(Does this person not know the face of her own queen? Though, I suppose that this isn’t really a place where someone would expect her to show up at . ).

Despite being an earl daughter, the girl’s status was modest

She was someone who rose in status, so to speak . However, she did not rise from performing deeds, like Leon did

She appeared to be a girl who didn’t make any appearances in the royal palace, didn’t learn manners through apprenticeship, and didn’t come to know Milaine’s face

Although Anjie was about to warn Milaine, the queen endured it while her cheek twitched

“I’ll pretend I didn’t hear that just now . All of you should finish paying and then leave . Aren’t you all still students at the academy? No actually, aren’t you all ashamed as n.o.bles?!”.

The girls in the cafe laughed scornfully towards Milaine’s words

They did not intend to stop in face of this person before them

“Huh? Don’t get carried away . Do you know who I am? I’m the daughter of the Olfery earl household . Know your position! Someone throw out this old woman . ”.

Once the girl ordered her exclusive servants to do so, the demi-humans surrounded Milaine

Anjie was reaching the limits of her patience

“All of you . Do you realize who you’re──”.

Upon which, Leon’s face entered her field of view

When he looked at Milaine and Anjie, his face gradually grew into a smile . At first he was surprised, but perhaps realizing the situation, he then seemed like he was going to have fun . His smile formed a crescent shaped like the moon, as did his eyes

It was as if he was proclaiming that justice was going to be served

(N, not good . Why does it have to be in this place──).

When Anjie noticed it, Leon kicked one of the servants surrounding Milaine and sent the fellow flying

Leon strengthened his body using magic and went for an all-out attack, one that could blow away the tough body of demi-humans

“Have a safe flight, idiot~!”.

Not only the demi-humans, but the girls, Daniel, and Raymond were also astonished at his behavior

Livia made an expression that seemed as if she didn’t know what was going on anymore

Daniel shouted

“A, are you an idiot?! If you lay a hand on someone’s exclusive servant──”.

“It’s fine! You all should be delighted . It’s time for a fun party to begin!”.

Normally, the reason why boys wouldn’t attack servants was because the girls would start hating them . Just that one reason . It was due to this that the exclusive servants were protected

However, in this situation, Leon had an excuse to act as he did

Leon knew the face of the queen

He saw the face of Milaine, the queen, when he went through the t.i.tle-bestowing ceremony . Furthermore, after considering how she was standing by Anjie’s side, he was convinced that she was the queen

“Go to h.e.l.l!”.

Leon swung both of his hands downwards, like a hammer, onto another demi-human, thrusting his victim onto the the hard floor

It seemed like he didn’t have an ounce of mercy

The next demi-human who tried to subdue him was similarly thrown onto the floor

Leon had beaten down three people in an instant, and then appeared in front of Milaine, as if to protect her

“Restrain yourselves, servants! Know who this person that you’re facing is! She is the queen of the Holfault Kingdom──Milaine! Bow down before her, you haughty lot!”.

This time, it was Leon who was smiling towards the earl daughter, the one who had trampled down on him, and the others . He had revealed Milaine’s true ident.i.ty

Milaine was bewildered

“Huh? What? How?”.

When seeing how troubled Milaine seemed, Anjie covered her face with both of her hands

“Leon──you just had to say it . ”.

He had ruined her intentions of traveling incognito . He had beaten up the servants for the queen, and then tried to get the girls to bow down

Leon intimidated the girls

“All of you, prepare yourselves! You will have to accept what’s coming to you in order to make up for laying a hand on the queen! Don’t think that you will suffer no consequences just because you’re the daughter of an earl household!”.

Having used the queen as a pretext for his actions, Leon laughed loudly . The girls stood still and didn’t move while their mouths kept opening and closing . Their faces grew pale

Milaine grabbed Leon’s arm

“Leon, wait . I was travelling incognito . I can’t cause an uproar in a place like this! So calm down . You’re a good child, after all . Right?”.

It was a strange sight seeing an agitated Milaine trying to calm down Leon

However, Leon didn’t listen to her

His eyes conveyed eagerness, perhaps from the excitement

“I’ll leave the decision to you, my queen . I, Leon, am ready to take the lead when it is time to punish these people . Now then, give the orders! Perhaps you could put their entire family to death in order to cut the problem by its roots! I await your decree! I, Leon Fou Baltfault, will do my best to defeat your opponents! To destroy them, obliterate them!”.

“I said that’s enough!”.

Milaine had teary eyes . Anjie sighed

(He’s quite excited about this . I can only imagine what he has been through up until now . ).

Many of the girls in the cafe who tried to hara.s.s Leon were now trembling while casting their eyes downward

Leon’s clothes were tattered

There were signs that he had been thrusted onto the floor many times, and the top of the table was quite dirty as well

There was a mountain of broken porcelain in the trash can

They had entered the cafe to get revenge on Leon

Milaine had planned to do something similar, but she didn’t know that the girls in the academy where already going above and beyond what she was going to do, and was taken aback by it

Leon made a loud laughter when an excuse for him to beat up the girls appeared

“Justice will be served! I’ll trample over your homes with Arroganz!”.

Milaine clung to Leon with teary eyes

“I’m begging you, stop . I was in the wrong, forgive me!”.

Livia hung her head and had a weeping face within the overly intense situation

In addition, Daniel and Raymond had appeared from the kitchen and tied up the servants

Furthermore, they were smiling

“You tried to start a fight with the queen . That’s a no-no . ”.

“Definitely a must-not . It’s like what Leon said, right? Justice will be served . ”.
