“I’m used to seeing you cry. There’s no need to be self-conscious about it now.”

“… I guess. You’re right…”

I buried my face in his chest and gently wrapped my arms around his waist.

Just like when he used to comfort me.

“… Thank you, Ouga.”

Feeling relieved, I let out my crying voice once again.

***

I’m currently running through the school building at night.

Holding Karen, who’s crouched down in my arms.

“Huh, huh… Why am I being carried like a princess…? Is this a dream? Yeah, it might be a dream my brain is showing me as an escape from reality, a convenient dream for me.”

Karen mumbles quickly and softly.

Her face is red, and her breathing is heavy.

Maybe she’s feeling uncomfortable from the shaking.

Can’t be helped. I’ll strengthen my hold on her to reduce the shaking.

“──!?”

For some reason, Karen lets out a voiceless cry.

Her face has become so flushed that it seems like she might have a fever.

Perhaps it’s because of staying alone, crying, and her fever has built up.

Even without that, stress can affect one’s health.

The shaking while running might have triggered it.

“Sorry, but stay still like this.”

“……!……!”

Karen nods and wraps her arms around my neck.

“Without anyone finding out, please bring her to the student council room,” was the mission given by Reina Millfonti.

Naturally, I can’t just leave the dormitory as is.

I checked the surroundings to make sure no one was watching, then jumped out of the window and arrived at this point…

“Lord Ouga, this way.”

“Understood.”

I follow Alice’s guidance, who had conducted a preliminary survey.

“O-Ouga… where exactly are you taking me…?”

“To the student council room.”

“Eh!?”

Safely deliver Karen to the student council room.

That’s the promise with the student council president.

“We’ve been waiting for you, Levezenka -san.”

In the center of the room, lit only by moonlight, Millfonti smiles cheerfully.

As suspicious as ever, her smile feels artificial.

I gently place Karen, who had turned pale, on the floor, and she seeks help with her eyes.

… But, of course, I ignore her.

No matter the circumstances, she must not abandon her responsibilities without permission.

And from what I heard, Millfonti is trying to help Karen.

It would be best to push her away and make her sincerely apologize.

“I-I’m terribly sorry…!”

“Yes, that’s fine.”

“… Huh?”

“I’m not angry. I haven’t created an organization where work can’t proceed just because one student council member is absent.”

But more importantly, she continues.

“I’m glad that you sincerely apologized and came before us. Right, Vallette-kun?”

“Yeah. Without Karen, we can’t move forward.”

I stand in front of Karen and grab her shoulder, making eye contact.

“Huh? W-What?”

“Karen… I’ve heard about the situation between you and the crown prince.”

“T-That’s…”

It might have been a topic Karen didn’t want to discuss, but for me, it was valuable information.

I had assumed that we were just not on good terms.

However, the reality was much darker, and Karen was hurting like this.

So, I want her to remember.

The actions I’ve taken and the sweet words I’ve said to her.

If I connect them, there’s only one answer.

… Wait? Could it be that Karen has actually fallen for me? That’s not good. Not good at all.

So, first, I needed to confirm Karen’s feelings.

“What do you want, Karen?”

“I… I…”

“Don’t worry about any constraints. I want you to be honest with your feelings.”

With those words, the trembling in her body vanished.

She tightly gripped the hem of her clothes.

“…I want to be with Ouga… Just like before, together.”

See, I knew it! I had earned too much favorability.

The terrifying possibility that crossed my mind when I heard the situation from Milfonti was this.

I want to create a harem.

But if rumors spread that I’m being admired by the daughter of the Levezenka Ducal, no girls will try to get close to me because they fear the Duke’s pressure.

The Duke’s influence is scary.

So, Karen has to continue living as the Crown Prince’s fiancée as usual.

But the current situation is an impossible future. That’s where Milfonti and I come in.

“…I see.”

The game isn’t over yet.

There’s still a chance for recovery.

I had already come up with that idea.

I’m sure Milfonti’s aim is the same.

Otherwise, she wouldn’t bother making a deal with me, known for being wicked.

“I might not be able to grant your wish, but I’ll do my best.”

“…I’m sorry. I’m still as weak as I was back then.”

“Don’t worry about it. There’s nothing wrong with relying on others. Leave it to me now.”

“…Okay.”

I can’t have others moving on their own accord!

Leave everything to me. It’s okay, I won’t do anything bad!

Milfonti seems willing to take full responsibility.

The Academy’s headmaster will handle Karen’s father’s response.

So, all I have to play is the role of the villain.

“Milfonti, no, Student Council President.”

“Yes, what is it?”

“I wish to duel with Arnia the Crown Prince.”

I’ll beat up that worthless playboy and make him taste defeat, leading to his reformation.

Then, I’ll have the reformed Crown Prince settle the score with Karen and start a new life from scratch.

Let’s call it the “Crown Prince’s New Game Strategy”!

***

“I wish to duel with Arnia the Crown Prince.”

I felt a shiver down my spine from his piercing gaze.

Ouga Vellett, the embodiment of unwavering justice, no matter what, and no matter how far, he won’t compromise.

How does one come up with the idea of challenging the Crown Prince to a fight just for the sake of a childhood friend?

But, I never doubted that Vellett-kun would do it.

He proactively secured a place for a commoner like Lieche-san.

He visited the desolate countryside, rescuing the orphans and even supporting them to be self-sufficient in their autonomous territory.

Concerned about the deterioration of public safety, he dispatched talented personnel all around to create a security force.

All of these actions are unimaginable for a noble.

There’s only one reason he can make such decisions.

His sense of justice.

His sacred heart compels him to never forgive evil.

Lately, he’s been a hot topic among students, but at the same time, I often hear rumors like “he’s only seeking fame” or “he secretly extorts a large amount of money.”

However, with a little consideration, it’s obvious that those are just jealous and baseless rumors.

Even though he’s rumored to be a “Saint,” he remains humble because he’s not interested in fame.

As a member of the Duke’s family, he has no reason to desire the meager amount of money that can be squeezed from commoners.

I’ve bet on that sense of justice of his.

And I’ve won.

“Yes. As the Student Council President, I shall accept your request.”

I smile with satisfaction in my heart.

The scenario I’ve painted so far is working.

The teacher will be pleased too.

With the Crown Prince as the bait, we can verify the authenticity of Bourbon ‘s idiot son’s testimony.

I can witness Magic Cancel with my own eyes.

In that sense, this issue was very convenient to provoke him.

“B-But there’s no way the Crown Prince would accept such a thing…”

Levezenkaenka-san’s concerns are understandable.

But this time, without a doubt–

“No, he will. Because it’s against a ‘loser.'”

He’s right.

A magic that erases magic, known as Magic Cancel – which the teacher provisionally calls it – isn’t widely known.

We, too, aren’t confident in the technology.

Arnia the Crown Prince may not be top-notch, but he possesses a considerable level of power as a member of the royal family.

Especially considering how proud he is.

He wouldn’t avoid a duel with Vellett-kun, whom he views as beneath him.

Of course, that’s not the only factor.

“Now then, let’s hear your requests if you win.”

The duel system is a specialty of our academy.

Everything is determined by magical strength. It’s a school rule that can be implemented precisely because it declares that social status doesn’t matter.

The rules are quite simple.

The loser must accept whatever the winner says.

You can bet anything you want: status, money, knowledge, physical abilities, lover, fiancé…

If the opponent agrees, anything goes.

“Milfonti, the Student Council President. I have a question… Can I entrust that right to Karen?”

“Huh!?”

Levezenka-san is surprised by the proposal, but it’s within my expectations.

He barely has any material desires.

He’s only doing this duel to improve Levezenka-san’s treatment.

That’s why he left it up to her.

To let Karen Levezenka choose her own future.

As a result, whatever happens, Vellett-kun will gracefully accept it.

“If the Arnia, Crown Prince agrees, then there’s no problem. I’ll arrange it that way.”

“Do you want me to talk to them?”

“No, I’ll talk to them myself. It’s part of the Student Council’s responsibilities to handle the duel.”

“That’s helpful. By the way, there’s one more message I want you to relay.”

“What is it?”

“Tell them that we will accept any request without conditions.”

“…! That’s… That’s… It’ll make my job easier, so I appreciate it.”
