Before the appearance of the Maiden of the Holy Sword, the Milchetta region was a land filled with intense battles against the monsters. The magic incense, which was a byproduct of such battles, attracted the monsters then made them violent. On the other hand, if it were to be used on humans, it would raise humans’ physical ability. In short, a superhuman can be produced using the incense. Hence, the Milchetta region in the past had tried to use the magic incense to get soldiers to fight against the monsters.
However, due to the high level of poisonous properties in the incense, a large number of soldiers became crippled after using the item. Later on, after they began worshipping the Maiden of Holy Sword, they entrusted the concealment of the drug’s existence to Milchetta Church’s management that had become the largest religion in the Elmeier Kingdom. Moreover, excessive information control in the past made it impossible for anyone in the present time to refine the necessary material, the Opim, the correct way.
However, there was a description of Opim in the game. It was made from a plant that bloomed red flowers with an egg-sized fruit. The emulsion taken from the damaged fruit was dried, and when turned into its powdered form, it became Opim――in short, the opium was depicted as Opim in the game. In other words, the mustard plant was necessary to make the Opim and therefore to make a magic incense, the mustard plant was needed. Perhaps the game producer wanted to give a sense of something forbidden when he used the plant which was prohibited to be planted in Japan as the key item.
Incidentally, in this world, neither the mustard nor the opium was prohibited. In fact, there was actually a mustard plant in the plantation snatched away by Cedric.
That’s why she left the research on the mustard plants that grew naturally in the academy to Luc and Quartz. By leaving some of it behind, they could also take this chance to find the person who was trying to collect it.
（I will deal with the matter of magic incense first for the time being. After that, I will save the Principality of Milchetta from its road to destruction……！）
Just like how the majority of Claude’s routes led him into destroying the Elmeier Kingdom, in the sequel, there were also many routes that led James into destroying the Principality of Milchetta. Amongst them, the only route that certainly would not lead to the downfall of the Principality of Milchetta was Auguste Zerum’s route. In other words, it was the route in which she had to lend the Holy Sword to Auguste in order to defeat James.
But she didn’t feel like going down that route.
（It seems like the game has begun anyway, so the first thing I need to do is to meet the protagonist, Selena, and check the progression of the game……）
「――ーLua. Airi Kahlua！」
It took her a second to recognize her unfamiliar pseudonym. The teacher had called out to her.
As Irene obediently stood up, the math teacher who had a moody visage said while holding on to the chalk.
「Transfer student. You caused quite a disturbance on your first day and even dared to attend the class without a textbook as well. You sure are quite laid back, aren’t you? I’m sure you’re an excellent student――So, what is the answer to the question on the page number 137？」
Irene answered without hesitation then proceeded to sit back on her chair.
She knew that the teacher, who stared at her in wonder, was someone who would severely criticize the students who didn’t open their textbooks. Even though giving her a warning was just good enough, his method was just too detestable. As a proof of that, the teacher replied bitterly to her.
That caused a small commotion in the classroom.
「His luck was good」
The teacher spat out with a small voice. But perhaps he didn’t feel like challenging her once again, so the class resumed as it was before.
It wasn’t that impressive. The heroine was given the same problem during the class in the game. That’s why Irene remembered.
However, it had occurred to her that even the teacher had their eyes on yesterday’s matter. It may be quite troublesome to get close to the heroine Selena without being conspicuous. It wasn’t something that could be done with just one simple greeting as they needed to be in contact at fixed intervals. Some reasonable pretext was necessary.
（I will certainly be conspicuous since Selena is the student council’s secretary……Isaac will be mad at me）
It couldn’t be helped if Irene had to be somewhat daring. While she was still in her head, making a plan to some extent, the ringing bell signaled the end of the morning class.
Without her textbook, Irene casually strolled down the stairs to leave the classroom while heading to the neighboring class. Her aim was Auguste. Since they had become an acquaintance, there was no reason not to use him at all.
However, she stopped in her tracks after looking at the figures of the two people near the stairs.
