「I don’t want to see Claude-sama for the time being……！」
「Well, if we were to get caught going behind his back like this, there’s gonna be a volcanic eruption instead of mere heavy rain」
Isaac went out of the dorm first after lighting up the lantern. There was an improvised armband prepared for the guards on duty attached to his arm.
「That’s not what I meant！What I’m saying is, I can’t accept the fact that you made me write such an embarrassing letter like “I can’t wait to meet you” or “I’m lonely without you” and such!」
「Oh~, I wonder if you could still be able to say that even if the river’s flooded due to heavy rain」
「T-That isn’t necessarily my fault, is it?……」
「I hope so. But, don’t you ever tell the Demon King-sama that I forced you to write that letter」
Irene reluctantly ceased her objections after being given a serious look by Isaac. But, still she secretly complained in her heart.
(Even Almond is sulking, unwilling to come out! Although the other monsters are also concealing from Claude-sama that we’re here, their attitudes are somewhat half-hearted as well…)
Irene unreasonably condemning everything, including the monsters in her lamentation.
The love is too much.
「Soー？The highly honorable Misha Academy’s guards only have two members?」
「My, I’m planning to increase the number of members from now onwards, though？」
「……I should have said this earlier, but can you stop using that tone while you’re in that male getup? It’s creeping me out」
「I see, sorry. I’ll be careful since we don’t know if anyone is listening」
「……Even when I think of you as Irene, using that kind of tone also makes me feel gross」
「Whatever, let’s go. The first thing we need to do is doing a patrol」
Since Misha Academy had a dormitory for students who came from far, they also had lights-off time. Therefore, it was easy to find students moving suspiciously and also dodgy students who didn’t go back after curfew.
「How about we live in the dorm? It’ll be even better if we stay in the same room since it’ll be easy to have meetings.」
「Don’t even think of raising even more death flags for me. It’ll give me peace of mind if we have a room each……Hey, isn’t this academy has its proper guards？Is there any good reason for us to do this patrol?」
「If we find them out before the guards; we will have the right to question them. And the students who may be using the magic incense may be on the move as well」
「……Magic incense, is it? I genuinely want to question the existence of that thing」
Isaac walked ahead of Irene while saying that. Irene also kept on walking while keeping an eye on their surroundings.
「And also, I can’t say that Ashtart has nothing to do with that vampire incident」
「But, listen, what kind of joke is the monster that had threatened to destroy Milchetta doing by attacking a female student――」
Isaac suddenly stopped in his tracks while he was in the middle of his rant. Irene nodded in assent to Isaac when he made a gesture to keep quiet to her. Isaac quickly turned off the light from the lantern after they secretly hide behind the building. Despite his complaints, he was still trying to take Irene’s intention of patrolling to the heart seriously.
They were concentrating on the two shadows formed by the moonlight ahead of them. The figures that were hidden by the trees seem to be in the middle of a conversation. However, the side profile of a female student who took a step forward caused Irene to widened her eyes in shock.
「You know her?……Wait, isn’t she the girl you saved on your first day of transfer?」
「Wait, please wait for a minute！I can explain」(Rachel)
Rachel shouted. As the figure in front of her turned around――That person had a significant physique. So, he was male.
（……It seems like the rumor about her secret meeting with a male student is real. Don’t tell me that’s a spot for a rendezvous……）
Then, it seemed like the indignation of her fiance was justifiable. But it didn’t give him the right to hit her, did it? The conversation in front of them continued as Irene pondered seriously about it.
「Y-you said you’d save her, so I……」(Rachel)
「What? I did save her, didn’t I?」
Irene bent herself forward in curiosity since the voice of that male sounded familiar to her.
That male was the treacherous mathematics teacher who tried to denounce Irene since she had no textbook the other day.
「Heh~, so it’s Professor Kenneth」
Irene managed to stifle her sudden loud voice immediately. A voice that suddenly came from behind them caused Isaac to lean back to the building.
Walt, in a messy uniform, raised his hand lightly in greeting.
「Yo! Members of the guards」
「W-Walt-senpai……！why are you here?」
「The one who added the student council members as part of the guard is Airi, isn’t it？」
Walt didn’t fail to hear Isaac’s short murmur.
「Maybe you could say that as well. Never mind that, take a look at over there. Don’t you think that scene is almost similar to the vampire incident?」
「That female student has properly broken off her engagement, hasn’t she? Maybe she’s happy since she broke off with a jerk」(Prof. Kenneth)
「T-that’s not true……!? People would avoid having an engagement with her if they found out that a monster has defiled her, you know! It’s also possible for her parents to disown her as well……」(Rachel)
「That’s pretty much it. If she doesn’t want that to happen, she should have been obedient to her fiance from the beginning, shouldn’t she? It doesn’t matter whether she was beaten or kicked by that fiance of hers」(Prof. Kenneth)
「So, what are you going to do? Are you going to pay or not？I don’t mind making this letter public y’ know」(Prof. Kenneth)
「Please stop it！If you were to do that, that girl will drop out of school……！」(Rachel)
「Then I don’t mind telling the truth as well. Like the fact that you’re the real culprit behind this vampire incident」
――The case was solved in the blink of an eye. But, Irene didn’t feel any joy from it at all。
「Then, shall we arrest those two as the culprits of this incident?」
Walt said in a carefree manner. That caused Irene to glare at him. Isaac said with a sigh.
「So you already know about it, aren’t you senpai?」
「That’s not true. I’m also surprised, you know.――By the way, who are you？Airi-kun’s friend？You also transferred here as soon as the fall semester started, aren’t you?」
「If you looked it up you’ll know at least that much」
Isaac skillfully overturns their exchange with a provocation.
That’s right; they have made an appropriate story behind the relationship between Isaac and Airi. Airi was the son of an upstart merchant family. Isaac, on the other hand, was a son from a wealthy family who lent money to Airi’s family; both of them had long known each other. They were set to have an unexpected reunion at the academy.
Meanwhile, Irene was convinced that Walt didn’t come to them only to observe them.
（Are we being suspected by any chance? Which means, Kyle-senpai suspected us as well. After all, if this were similar to the game, they are――）
Irene quickly snapped out of her musings to focus back on Rachel.
Rachel gave the professor a coin pouch while trembling. Kenneth made an indecent laugh while counting the money inside of that.
「This isn’t enough」
「I-I’m sorry. The dresses didn’t have as much value as I thought…B-but, I’ll prepare it soon. So, please give me back that letter」
「This is why a woman is…If I were to give you back the letter, you would begin to ignore me afterwards, wouldn’t you?」
「But, I’m magnanimous. I don’t mind giving you back the letter」
Rachel looked so relieved after hearing that
But, Irene didn’t miss the look on Kenneth’s eyes and the salacious grin he made. Irene slowly inched her hand to the handle of the slender sword that was hung on her waist.
「That is if you give yourself to me」
Rachel, whose wrist was suddenly caught by Kenneth and had been drawn towards him, let out a small scream. Kenneth covered Rachel’s mouth with a handkerchief while having a vulgar smile on his face. Immediately after that, Rachel lost the strength to resist him.
「Don’t worry, after all, you’re also only going to be a victim of a vampire after you wake up――Argh！」
Irene quickly jumped out from the place they were hiding and fly-kicked Kenneth from the side without warning.
Kenneth, who only focused on Rachel, made to jump sideways by Irene――――But, he got up like a spring. He was agile; it was unthinkable for a person of his age.
And then, he escaped just like that.
「Isaac, I’ll leave Rachel to you！」(Irene)
「Ahー……I know he would do that……Just don’t be recklessー」
After confirming that Isaac had approached Rachel from the corner of her eyes, Irene ran after Kenneth. Relying on the rustling sound made by his footsteps, Irene advanced towards the vast rear garden which had all kinds of trees in abundance.
But, she felt like the sound of Kenneth’s footsteps gradually became more distant――Moreover, in an absurd speed at that.
Kenneth was a man while Irene was a woman despite her confidence in her motor capability. It wouldn’t be strange for her not to be able to catch up with him. But still, for him to immediately pull their distant that apart in such time, he was too fast.
（Moreover, there’s something that smells weirdly sweet……）
Don’t tell me――the magic incense。
The game described it as something that has a sweet smell.
When she was about to brush off that possibility, at that moment, there was a sound from the bushes. Irene heard the sound of someone running away.
Irene was able to conclude that it was a woman from the lightness of the sound. But that sound was drowned out by the sound of someone’s scream.
「UH, AH, UWAAAAAAAA!! MONSTER!!」
