Mob Villain In An Otome Game Volume 1 Chapter 12 part 2

“So, you’re interested in creating a magic recovery potion. Lord Reed, you never cease to amaze me. I spent so much time searching for the Moonlight Grass, and yet I couldn’t obtain it even with the knowledge of its existence.”

Unlike during our training sessions, Sandra now wore a slightly melancholic expression as she tightly clasped her hands on her knees. I waited for her to speak, sensing that it would be better to allow her to share her thoughts. After a brief moment of silence, Sandra began to talk about her time in the Imperial Capital.

In the capital, elite mages were gathered regardless of their social status, and a substantial budget was allocated for the research of magic recovery potions. However, there were nobles who opposed the idea of assembling personnel regardless of social status and allocating such a large budget. They resorted to indirect methods to harass the researchers. The procurement of research materials was cunningly obstructed, leading to significant delays in the progress of their work. 

Initially, the mages had been filled with motivation, but they grew disheartened by the numerous obstacles and eventually quit. As a result, Sandra had to resign, taking responsibility for the lack of progress. It was said that one of the nobles who forced her resignation ended up taking her place. Although some nobles, including the Emperor, were aware of the noble’s actions, they lacked concrete evidence to confront him.

Moreover, despite their best efforts, they couldn’t achieve the desired results. Sandra was held accountable for the shortage of personnel, which made it practically impossible to continue the research. Consequently, she had no choice but to resign. As she hailed from a noble family, she worried that her family would be affected by the turmoil surrounding her resignation. Thus, she convinced her family to disown her.

The most challenging part of the whole ordeal for her was the sadness she caused her family. Sandra was the youngest of four siblings, with two older brothers and an older sister.

Originally, as a noble, she was expected to enter into a marriage arrangement. However, her parents and siblings recognized her passion for magic and research and never pressured her into marriage. Among them, her research papers and magical knowledge were highly regarded, earning her a place in the national research on magic recovery potions. Eventually, she became the director of the research institute.

There was nothing more honorable than this. Above all, she believed that she could become a source of pride for her parents and siblings, and she secretly shed tears. However, it turned out to be the most painful betrayal of those expectations, causing immense frustration. Some nobles even proposed the death penalty or exile for her failure to fulfill the country and the Emperor’s orders, but Count Reiner and his followers intervened to stop them. The Emperor, who had already disowned his own family, the Ernest family, deemed her resignation as the director of the research institute sufficient. It was Count Reiner who offered solace when she was in despair.

“You are more talented than you think. I want you to be my son’s tutor.”

Upon hearing those words, something inside Sandra shattered, and she burst into tears, seeking comfort in Count Reiner’s arms.

As she shared her past story, she smiled shyly.

“…And now, here I am.”

What could I possibly say to her? Her family had granted her the freedom to pursue her passion, only to be treated heartlessly and forced to bear the responsibility. As a result, her precious bond with her family was severed, and she ended up here.

Now, I am attempting to reignite her research on the magic recovery potion that caused all of this. It might be a painful journey for her. But I also want to help my mother—I can’t abandon that desire.

“…I see. However, I have also made a decision to assist my family. Therefore, I truly wish to collaborate with you, Sandra.”

“…Family?” she asked, her eyes slightly teary as she regarded me with a puzzled expression.

“Please keep this between us. My mother suffers from ‘Mana Depletion Syndrome.’ Without any changes, she will surely pass away soon. Therefore, I intend to create a special medicine. However, it will take time. That’s why I want to develop the magic recovery potion to help my mother live a little longer. I want to buy some time.”

Sandra listened silently to my words. I couldn’t stop there.


“I implore you, Sandra. I need your assistance… I have discovered a connection between Moonlight Grass and magic recovery potions, but I don’t know how to create them. If we succeed in creating the magic recovery potion, I will announce it as a joint development between Sandra and Valdia. You will be acknowledged as the developer, Sandra.”


I sensed her hesitation in her eyes when I mentioned Sandra presenting the development, but I couldn’t back down now.

“At the moment, I am also searching for an herb that can serve as the foundation for a cure for magic depletion. If I can find it, I should be able to develop the cure. And at that time, Sandra, your help will be absolutely crucial. Please, Sandra, lend me your strength.”

After concluding my plea, I lowered my head to Sandra.

“I understand. Please raise your head, Lord Reed. If you are willing, I would be delighted to assist you. Moreover, I have a debt to repay to Reiner. I will do my utmost to save Nunnaly.”

“Thank you… Thank you so much…”

I firmly held her hand with both of mine.

As our emotions settled, our faces blushed with embarrassment.

“By the way, the actions of the nobles in the imperial capital could be considered a betrayal towards Sandra…”

“Well, at that time, they had no prospects for the raw materials required to create magic recovery potions, unlike Lord Reed. It must have been frustrating for them to allocate a substantial budget to something they believed to be impossible.”

Now that we had both regained our composure, we delved into discussing our future plans. It became apparent that Sandra hadn’t divulged any information about Moonlight Grass during her time at the research institute in the imperial capital. She had intentionally withheld valuable details, wanting to offer some resistance. She gleefully shared this with me.

“You know, I genuinely believe that the research institute in the imperial capital is nothing more than a money pit,” she remarked.

“But aren’t you concerned about not providing the information? Won’t there be consequences?” I inquired, worried that Sandra might face accusations of stealing research results later on.

It was fortunate that Sandra, who had been involved in research in the imperial capital, was now on my side. But I didn’t want her to be accused of stealing research results later.

“No need to worry. To begin with, I had the information about Moonlight Grass recorded in my personal belongings. When I left the research institute, they practically handed everything over to me without even bothering to check the contents. I don’t think they were aware of the information’s existence,” she explained.

The actions of the nobles in the imperial capital had truly caused a mess. They were completely oblivious to the gold mine they had willingly let slip through their fingers.

I couldn’t help but feel a deep sense of gratitude towards them from the bottom of my heart.

“Now, we need to decide what to do about the research facility. Where are you currently residing, Sandra?” I inquired.

“Lord Reed, Sir Reiner has provided me with a residence in the town, so I’m living there. However, I don’t have the necessary facilities for conducting research. It would be incredibly helpful if I could have a research facility,” Sandra replied.

“I believe it would be best to discuss this matter with the trading company. Let’s address it when Father and the others return,” I suggested.

“Lord Reed, I would greatly appreciate it if you could provide me with as much Moonlight Grass as possible. Additionally, I would require a few other medicinal herbs,” Sandra requested.

“Certainly, we can make the necessary arrangements with the trading company. I’ll introduce you to Chris next time, and you can inform her about your requirements. You can address the invoice to me,” I assured her.

“Thank you so much! I will dedicate myself wholeheartedly to my research,” Sandra expressed her gratitude.

The conversation with Sandra carried on for some time. We continued discussing our plans until we were interrupted by a knock on the door of the reception room. Wrapping up our conversation, Sandra bestowed me with a mischievous smile and spoke.

“Lord Reed… During our discussions, you can refer to me as ‘Sandra,’ but during class, I kindly request you to address me as ‘Professor Sandra.'”

Her expression and words somehow leaving me feeling drained momentarily.
