“I’ll return your words from earlier. You’re quite the performer, aren’t you? I haven’t put in more than a tenth of my full strength.”

Even though Alice had said he was stronger than expected… huh?

As if the battle had already been decided,

Arnia’s figure lay on the ground covered in dust, with his face kissing the earth as his rear stuck up.

His momentum had caused his belt to break, revealing half of his buttocks.

Quite an undignified sight.

Laughter, mixed with pity, could be heard from the spectator seats.

While he had successfully become the world’s first crown prince to show off his half-bare bottom, I wouldn’t let it end there, of course.

“The humiliation Karen suffered isn’t limited to this.”

By saying that, I’ll make him physically understand how terrible his actions were.

Through pain, he’ll finally start to feel guilty about what he did to her.

The more I inflict pain, the more his feelings of guilt will swell.

I’ll engrave it so deeply inside him that it may drive him insane with trauma.

And then, Arnia’s arrogant heart will shatter.

He’ll pray never to experience such humiliation again.

This is my envisioned [Crown Prince’s New Game Strategy].

“I’ll continue to hurt you. Now, get up! The match is just beginning.”

“…”

“Hmph, pretending to be unconscious, huh? The one who has royal blood running through his veins resorts to such sneaky tactics.”

“…”

“Fine then. I’ll do as you wish and make you stand.”

With no reaction to my taunts, it seems he’s really trying to catch me off guard.

At this point, he must have finally understood the difference in power.

I’ll keep hitting him until he no longer has the will to resist or come up with excuses after losing.

Having taken the bait, I grabbed him by the collar and lifted him up–

“Huh?”

Arnia’s eyes rolled back, and he foamed at the mouth.

…What? This can’t be true.

Because Alice said he was stronger than expected… huh?

Overwhelmed with surprise, my hand lost its grip, and Arnia fell back, lying on his back.

His pants, which had loosened after I lifted him up, completely came off.

Something as small as a pinkie finger was now exposed.

The bare-bottomed crown prince, defeated in a single blow by a [Dropout], was exposed to the public.

“…”

The air suddenly became lifeless. Under the clear sky, a silence settled in that wouldn’t be expected from a large gathering.

In the midst of it, cold sweat ran down my back.

Hey, hey, hey…!

What’s going on… why did he lose consciousness…?

I haven’t even executed ten percent of the plan yet!

If I collapse before completely breaking his spirit, the plan won’t progress at all!

“Don’t mess with me! This much won’t satisfy me!”

I shook him by the collar, but only his neck and the little thing down there wobbled.

He didn’t regain consciousness; he simply lay there, motionless.

“Darn it! If it’s come to this, I’ll kick him in the crotch to wake him up by force!”

“Stop! The match has already been decided! Step back!”

“What?! Hey, let me go!”

As I raised my arm, several people jumped on me, holding me tightly, and pulled me away from Arnia.

The medical team began preparing to carry him on a stretcher to the infirmary.

“Ugh…! Karen… the engagement with Karen…!”

“Huh?! H-He’s being dragged away…?!”

“His love for Levezenka…!”

“Perhaps a surge of anger…! Hey! Some of you come this way!”

“Alniaaaaa…!”

Dragged by the students trying to stop me, I forcefully try to move forward, but unfortunately, I can’t catch up.

The stretcher carrying the unconscious Arnia keeps getting smaller and finally disappears outside the venue.

“Darn it! Darn it all!”

I collapse on the spot, pounding the ground with a fist full of frustration.

That one blow should not have been enough to knock Arnia out cold, damn it…!

He’ll probably come up with excuses like it was just a bad hit and maintain his same attitude as always.

If that happens, Karen will undoubtedly won’t choose Arnia.

Her passionate determination before the duel was because I believed I could change him.

But now… but now it’s like this…!

“…Don’t be so down. You did well.”

“We misunderstood you.”

“The rumors were indeed true. Leave the rest to us.”

Students pat my shoulders and head to the announcer’s booth to talk about something.

What are those guys who were bothering me just a while ago planning now?

“For now, leave them be.”

“But, but you see, the winner’s interview…”

What?! A winner’s interview!?

If that takes up time, there won’t be a chance for me to explain the situation to Karen.

If I can convince her, maybe she’ll still wait before breaking off the engagement.

Of course, I’ll take full responsibility for changing Arnia.

For that, I needed some calm time to talk with Karen.

Before getting surrounded again, I’ll excuse myself from this place.

“I’m going to see Karen! There’s an important talk I need to have with her!”

Shouting the reason for giving up the interview, I leave the arena.

Loud boos and jeers are heard, probably a storm of booing.

But I’ll ignore them, just ignore them.

“Karen! Where are you!?”

“Ouga-kun, over here!”

“Lord Ouga, we’ve been waiting for you. If it’s Lady Levezenka, she’s moved to the principal’s office.”

“I see! Thanks, Alice!”

Frantically searching for her as she couldn’t be seen, two people come down from the spectator seats and tell me where Karen is.

Thanking them, I immediately rush towards the principal’s office.

The principal is probably helping with the “post-duel arrangements,” possibly persuading Karen’s father.

Maybe, in my absence, they’ve already made progress in the discussion.

I didn’t ask for that.

Considering her personality, I thought she wouldn’t leave my side and would cheer for me on the spot…

“Haa… Haa…”

Running up the stairs, I arrive at the principal’s office.

I catch my breath with my shoulders heaving, but without even calming my breath, as soon as I try to burst in, the door opens from the other side.

“Ah, Ouga!”

Karen’s beaming smile greets me as she jumps into my arms.

I instinctively support her to make sure she doesn’t fall, and then a click of the tongue is heard.

Of course, it’s not Karen’s.

Following the sound, I find Karen’s father, the jerk, standing there with bulging veins.

The master and apprentice of Millefonti come out of the room, pushing him aside.

“Oh my, things are getting heated. As I thought, you two look good together. Right, Reina?”

“Yes, as you say, Teacher.”

The principal smiles kindly, while Reina continues with her usual blank expression.

They might be a mismatched pair, but that’s not the issue right now.

“Principal? I don’t understand what’s going on…”

“Hehehe. Your wish has been granted.”

“My wish?”

That means Karen has decided to reconcile with Arnia–

“–The formal engagement between you and Lady Levezenka has been approved.”

“Yay! …Huh?”

Wait? The words I heard were different from what I expected… No, no, I must have misheard.

There’s no way that jerk of a father would approve the engagement with a zero-magic-aptitude me…

“Yes, these are the documents. Both families’ representatives have signed them properly.”

“Let me see that!”

Snatching the documents, I see that it lists some contractual terms about Karen and my engagement, and at the bottom, there are the names of Karen’s father and my father.

Each family crest is stamped.

But that’s not the most shocking part.

For some reason, as a witness, Arnia’s father, in other words, the king, has also signed and sealed it.

“…Eh, ah… huh?”

So, so it means… Karen and my engagement is approved by the king…

…Huh? This is absolutely unbreakable!

And from now on, I’ll have to behave as an engaged couple of two dukes, recognized even by the king.

Why is the king so easily approving his former daughter in law engagement to someone with zero magic aptitude?

I don’t get it… I don’t understand what’s going on at all…

Unable to keep up with the understanding, I stand still in shock, while Karen tightens her arms around my waist.

Feeling a softness I couldn’t imagine from her silhouette, my gaze involuntarily shifts towards her.

“Um… even though I’m like this… I’m going to change from now on. I’ll work hard to become a good wife… so please take care of me, Ouga.”

Since reuniting with her, no, since I met her, this is the cutest smile I’ve seen from her.

“…Aaahhhh!”

Shocked by the reality that my carefree harem life has been pushed further away, I collapse right there.

I don’t get it… I don’t understand what’s going on at all…

Unable to keep up with the understanding, I stand still in shock, while Karen tightens her arms around my waist.

Feeling a softness I couldn’t imagine from her silhouette, my gaze involuntarily shifts towards her.
