「Since all of them are women, they just can’t seem to shut u-……be modest. I’m extremely worried that something might happen before the school festival. The female students in this academy are ladies in the making. That’s why we’ll be in trouble if something were to happen to them」
In short, the call for an investigation was demanded by the annoying guardians, but James didn’t want to deal with such stupid rumor. Since it was troublesome, he must have thought of letting Irene to deal with it.
「It seems like they went to the Proxy Lord to complain since we didn’t investigate the case」
Proxy Lord. Irene’s startled response wasn’t noticed by James who was sitting in front of her and Auguste who was standing next to her.
「Isn’t the Proxy Lord……the Demon King? How courageous」
「I also heard they were visiting to question him whether he’s the culprit or not」
「I’ll take over the job」
「I’ll take over it. I’ll just need to investigate and arrest the perpetrator, aren’t I？」
Claude was being suspected of attacking a female student. She could not let this pass as Claude’s fiancee.
Perhaps he managed to perceive Irene’s soul burned in a silent rage, James cleared his throat then nodded in assent even though he was frowning.
「Then, I’ll leave it to you. If you manage to settle it peacefully, I’ll let you join the student council’s general affair」
「Then, please make a written oath. Since I’m not going to be able to bear it if you were to tell me that you don’t remember making such promise after this」
At Irene’s shameless smile, Walt snorted a little from behind her. James sighed, took out a paper and then ran the quill pen across it. He looked like he used to it. Both the format and the content of the letter were perfect. She understood the reason behind calling this place as a “small national politics”.
「One more thing, I think it is also necessary to have guards for crime prevention while I’m doing the investigation. So, I would like to ask for permission to establish a team of guards」
「Please also authorized of them being armed with swords. It’s absolutely necessary if there’s a rumor saying that the perpetrator is a monster――It can also be a performance to the Lily Ladies, right？」
James placed his fist to his chin in a thinking manner.
「A team……What about the members, assuming that you are the captain」
「I’ll constantly recruit them」
James laughed provocatively when Irene answered with a serious face.
「Sure, I’ll approve it――If you can gather them」
「Thank you very much」
「Then, your first job includes establishing guards」
James, who had written something other than the pledge, signed and affix a seal on the document and gave it to Irene.
It was a report concerning the establishment of the guards. It also contained a rough information on their recent discussion: all in one document.
Does that mean he wrote this while talking with us? Irene was secretly astonished by his impressive ability of processing information.
「Bring this document to the dean――I mean, go have this document authorized by the Proxy Lord」
「……。What? The dean is the Proxy Lord？」
「For generations, the Lord of Milchetta is also the dean of Misha Academy」
That was the first time she heard such setting.
（In, in other words, Claude-sama is the current dean……Wait a minute! Does that mean there’s a possibility of Claude-sama turning up at this academy!? ……If I also encountered him by chance）
James snorted seeing Irene shivered from having goosebumps.
「What? Are you scared with the prospect of meeting the Demon Lord. Even though from now on, you’re going to solve the blood-sucking incident that was rumored to be the work of a monster? This means that your assertiveness is just a facade」
「It……It isn’t like that」
「As you would expect, if you want to establish a new organization, you need the dean’s signature. And of course, it’s also fine if you don’t want to go. But, this discussion will be void」
James laughed while picking up the pledge with his fingers.
（If I were to be discovered by Claude-sama, I will be forced to return immediately……！）
It’ll be alright since I was disguised as a man――she couldn’t afford to have such naive thinking. He would be able to see right through her disguise. She truly believed so.
How should I put this, how am I supposed to stand in front of him and without being seen through?
（Wait, that’s not it, right now, what should I!……）
Her wandering gaze were caught by the heap of miscellaneous things placed in the corner of the well-organized student council room.
Those might be the props collected for the school festival. She gazed at them in wonderment.
「So, what are you gonna do? Are you going to the Demon King for his approval, or not? 」
Irene reached out to the document placed on top of the ebony desk then firmly grasped it.
She would have to deceive him. He might be the Demon King, but she loved him.
