Okay, the Preparing Arc and the School Arc have basically no Val/Pryde content (the few scenes are mixed in with the Brothers Arc, I looked), so I'm just going to throw Val's reaction to going to school at you. It's funny, anyway. Again, naming the scenes according to chapter. The following excerpts do not contain the entire chapter. (You'll have to wait until the translator reaches this point to read the whole chapter, or TL it yourself. Here's the Preparing Arc! (Pryde POV) II 4. The Princess Hangs Her Head Spoiler The Knight said "Report!" And then continued, "I'm reporting to Her Royal Highness Princess Pryde from the royal palace," a report from a guard with special communication abilities in the royal palace. "The deliveryman has arrived at the direction of Her Royal Highness Princess Pryde. Please confirm it first." It's Val. Yes, I had instructed him to come later. If I look at the clock, it's been a good amount of time since then. I thought I would call him and ask him to wait, but when I looked around, Chancellor Gilbert and Stayle stood up from their seats at the same time. "Then, Knight Commander and Deputy Commander. Chancellor Gilbert and I will consult with you later." "Guardian Knights, please do all of the above confidentially." Let's go, followed by Stayle and even Chancellor Gilbert urged me to leave. Well, I'm a little surprised at Stayle, who gave priority to Val's errands like the heat from before was a lie. He normally wouldn't mind letting Val wait for an hour. As Tiara stood up to suit me, the Knight Commander and the Deputy Commander stood up and thanked me. They bowed down, and Captain Harrison and his colleagues followed suit. I and Tiara return the greetings and hold hands together. As it was time to change the Guardian Knights, I left Captain Colm and Arthur, who quickly took over on the spot, and left the Operations Conference Room with Captain Alain and Deputy Captain Eric. After thanking the Knight for reporting, he, who seems to be a Knight from the main corps, stretched his spine as if he had been struck by lightning when I came out. After all, anyone would be surprised if the royal family suddenly appeared from the other side of the door .... I headed for the carriage that I got on from the Operations Conference Room. "......... He already knows about rejuvenating special abilities , right?" "Yeah. If it's him, he can be fully involved without us needing permission from Mother. It's not a mistake to include him.. ...... Behavior aside, it's good for there to be many people in the school who can protect my sister. " "It has been proven that special abilities do not degenerate even when rejuvenated." "Useful for moving behind the scenes" While walking, an unusually dark ambition and aura was released by Chancellor Gilbert and Stayle. I was scared and looked back a little, and they were laughing with a black smile and their mouths raised. The smile that suits the grinning sound was an expression that the two of them were definitely thinking about black things. Captain Alain and Deputy Captain Eric also had cramped faces, as if they had noticed. …… Somehow, it seems that another person has been confirmed to become involved in this incident. Val, I'm sorry. (Stayle POV) II 5. The Adopted Brother is Ready Spoiler "Seriously ... No, I don't know why ... He definitely hated it." Arthur, who first heard the story from Stayle, was disappointed with Colm. After hearing the confession from Pryde in the afternoon, it's still understandable that Val, who knows Gilbert's identity, will sneak into school as one of Pryde's escorts. However, Val, who is busy as a deliveryman and is incompatible with the system of "school", cannot usually be accepted. However, at the same time, Arthur and Colm think that his resistance may have broken at the end because of the reason. "At first, it was just stupid." Yeah, Alain and Eric nodded with a half laugh, as they recalled Stayle's story. When Stayle said, "I want you to infiltrate the school for about a month to escort my sister," Val's rage and refusal were returned in haste. Alain and his friends were by their side as Pryde's guards, but this time Val was not unreasonably angry at all. Rather, Arthur felt a little sympathetic. Ignoring Val's remarks, which refuses categorically, Stayle and Gilbert said, "If you cover your face with a hood and a cloth as usual, no one would notice if you were 10 or so years younger." "Height stops at about 18, which is in range for high school." "You can't tell which one is the bad guy from listening." The two who coolly listened to Val's angry shouts, including Cedric, who occupies one of the five slots for the experience enrollment of the advanced class, and add and subtract by leaving the slots for the common people. He decided to refuse it. Even Pryde, who stepped in to arbitrate with a blue face. However, Stayle ordered Val to stop and made a decisive move. "But if you talked about Adam's survival potential, he would respond ... because he knows the dangers of Adam and Tippett." At that time, Val, who was seriously injured by Tippett, also feels the danger. Furthermore, it is the same Adam who controlled Pryde. Adam may be alive. However, Pryde won't stop infiltrating the school. And this is something not even known to the Queen. With that said, Val had no choice. After confirming the truth with the Pryde, she nodded and he yelled, "Ahhhhhhh!", And after smashing his head with both hands as much as he could, while Stayle sharpened his originally bad eyes even more violently. He responded to the negotiations. Val clicked his tongue a lot and swayed in a poor mood during the subsequent meetings, but he still proceeded in the direction of accepting the infiltration request. "School infiltration is only during my sister's infiltration period. Delivery work is done on holidays and after school. If absolutely necessary during the period, we will arrange for the special ability person to rejuvenate your appearance from here. Furthermore, it is allowed for Adam and Tippett to be disrespected, arrested, and attacked indefinitely on behalf of my sister. You do not have to take classes seriously during the confidential infiltration period. You can take personal actions. Of course, you will also receive a reward at the end. And ... Sefek and Kemet cannot get involved. " Stayle, who announced the details of the deal he had decided with Val today, concluded, "But the dormitory room is refused." Eric also remembered the exchange at that time and definitely nodded. All of Val's wishes are accepted unless he reveals the identity of Pryde who infiltrated the school. Stayle and Gilbert also intended to make concessions to the extent that they would be a deal in involving him. Arthur shouts "Ah?" To Stayle's words. He tilted his head while shaking the glass of sake. "Don't get involved, don't you act together? Aren't you both happy?" "At least Val himself said 'I don't need it', 'I'm annoyed' ... well, I don't think it's a lie." Val cannot lie to the royal family under the contract of slavery. But neither Stayle nor Arthur think that Val is reluctant to get involved just because they are in the way. Stayle didn't know if it had a different meaning, or if it involved the three secrets previously rewarded by Pryde. No one here argues against Val infiltrating the school to escort Pryde. They each have their own thoughts, but they can trust that if there was something in the school that threatened Pryde, he would definitely be on her side. However, it was a little surprising to them who were wondering if Sefek and Kemet, who were always together, could act together. Then the School Arc! (Pryde POV) II 12. The Fallen Girl Goes to School for the First Time Spoiler ...... The corridor is suddenly noisy. I'm sure the rooftop release should have been a month later. As we enter the classroom, we walk out into the hallway as the teachers make noise. The teacher leaned out of the window in the corridor and went to the school building opposite, saying, "You there! Where did you enter?" The passing students are also rubbernecking and peeking through other windows. The wall of people is so thick that I can't see well, but Arthur looked into it with his back stretched lightly. This may be ...! With the expectation, I asked Arthur "Can you see someone⁈". Then "......... Pry ... Jeanne, Phillip. He's doing it right away." A bitter expression came back with Arthur's low voice. When my face cramped while my expectations were broken in half, Stayle beckoned me in front of the window at a distance, saying, "You can see it from here." If I look through the window like a Pandora's box that you don't want to see anymore, I can glimpse the rooftop of the high school. The shadow, who was lying there, turned over and turned his back to the teacher's yelling as if he was nailed to the floor. Maybe he's sleepy early this morning, he's tired of returning to school again after seeing Chancellor Gilbert after sending them off, and he's wondering if he had a lot of free time until the start of work. And as Stayle and Arthur stare at him through the window, I silently unlock the closed window. "Pry, Jeanne⁈!" "Jeanne, I'm better than that," says Arthur and Stayle, but no questions were asked. As the pleasant breeze came into the school building, I leaned forward and took a breath. I scream to reach him, just like the teacher's voice. "Val‼ ︎ Come to the corridor right now‼ ︎‼ ︎" I, a second-year middle school student, call out a problem child in the third year of high school and definitely a bad Val. Pryde Royale Ivy's new school life as Jeanne Berners has begun with the worst of the bad news. EXTENDED (Pryde POV) II 13. The Fallen Girl Yells at Him Spoiler "Well, I'm saying it for you!" Before the start of work. I was supposed to preach to Val in the corridor. I tried to hide my voice so that it wouldn't stand out at least, but it still got rough. If I didn't have to worry about being seen by the students, I would stomp on the ground and yell. Val, who came to the corridor as ordered by my sermon, was annoyed and leaked only an appropriate voice, "Ah?". He definitely doesn't regret anything from the appearance of scratching his head and yawning boringly. Val, who Stayle had infiltrate as one of my escorts, stood in front of me in the appearance of a third-year high school student, although his physique changed slightly. Thanks to that, Arthur, who was finally approaching his height, is being looked down at like before, not to mention me, who has become fourteen. It seems that Val, who Stayle teleported for Chancellor Gilbert to rejuvenate his age after sending Sefek and Kemet to school, was already angry even before he received that special ability. ...... Well, of course. From today, Val will basically be in the shape of eighteen until the end of my infiltration inspection. Val often wants to hide his face, so he usually wears a hood, a cloth, or lies down during delivery. Furthermore, since his job as a delivery person is limited to deliveries to royalty abroad, the face and identity of the upper management of Freesia are hardly known. It was Chancellor Gilbert and Stayle's idea that no one would care if his age was a little younger, as long as they didn't change his height. Of course, when necessary, we are prepared to return him to the original form by consultation, but unlike us who hide their identity, if Val disappears or appears after school every time, people will be suspicious. There was also a plan for him to be confused as a relative of Captain Alain like us, but with Sefek and Kemet our identity would become known. They have been informed of the infiltration itself, but I want to hide from them as much as possible the identity of Chancellor Gilbert and those were involved in the extermination battle four years ago. At first, both of them were happy that Val would go to school, but Val himself strongly ordered them not to get involved with him near the school grounds. Just pretend to be someone else. It seems that Val wants to avoid meeting the two in school as much aspossible. I'm not sure if that's because of what he said, "I'm sick," or not. However, they seemed happy just because Val was in the school. I think it's encouraging to have someone nearby who can make them feel at ease. ...... It's like a hands-on classroom with parents. Val, who is neither a royal family nor afraid of having an acquaintance, does not disguise himself as such. However, if he hides his face with a hood up in school, it will be noticeable, so I banned it but allowed him to eat food while he was in the school. His usual jacket is packed in the bag he still carries. All that is left is to tie up the loose back hair in a mess in order to disguise the back view. To be honest, it's too messy as an image change, let alone disguise. The clothes that Chancellor Gilbert prepared for him seemed to have a different impression than usual to our eyes. Val was a lot older, so when I saw him younger than my actual age this year, I was rude to think that he was "young" from his face. ...... Although it's quite youthful it's the same as the first day we met. I also gave him some permission for the infiltration, such as refusal to attend the opening ceremony procedure here, and said that he does not have to take classes seriously. However, I never thought that he would enter the prohibited area from the first day of enrollment. I was prepared for him to go to bed during class, get out of class, and ignore the teacher's attention, and there is no fear of being noticeable. But this time he did a rooftop invasion that shouldn't have been released, let alone escape. Perhaps he got up from the wall with a special ability. It would have been peaceful if he could at least sleep on a tree! I didn't want to bother a teacher who didn't know anything more than necessary, and above all, I didn't want to make Val, who was exposing his real face for this reason, stand out. Because he "What would you do if you were spotted by a bad guy?⁈ You wouldn't be able to fight back⁈" Hiding, screaming, yelling. I never thought I would make such a statement to Val, who is much more mature than me. He cannot threaten or counterattack others under the servitude contract. However, it's common in schools to be targeted if you do something that stands out or is offensive in this way. They are new to the concept of school, but it is no exaggeration to say that it is an unavoidable man-made disaster for me. It would be awkward if Val, who stands out with his brown skin, was noticed by such an opponent. Moreover, it seems that many of the lower-class residents are rough people! Val finally responded to my sermon by slaping his head. The face that turned away from me was unpleasantly distorted, and I wonder if he remembers something like that. If so, please avoid any more noticeable behavior. Even if I am too angry and don't look in the mirror, I can tell that blood is circulating on my face. Already! Already! Even though I'm angry, I don't know what to do when I think that this state of being preached at by a middle school girl will make him stand out if other students see it. After getting involved so far, I regret, "I should have stopped you from coming along." I thought it would be encouraging and dependable for me to have Val, but I couldn't help thinking that he might be the target of bullying. At least he thinks it was wise to pretend to be someone else for Kemet and Sefek. If Val's bad looks spread, everyone involved with him will be affected. Val is only a temporary admission like me, but Sefek and Kemet will continue to attend school afterwards. Once angry, I consciously took deep breaths to release the heat. Stayle rubs my back so that I can calm down, and speaks in a low tone. "It's a self-responsibility at that point. Jeanne doesn't have to worry so much. If Val gets hurt by this, it's his own business." Val laughed with a nose at Stayle's relentless words. As Arthur was amazed at his attitude, he said, "Temee, you can't be fooled by my younger age ...", but Val said, "Who knows." It's not that he's not thinking about suffering any damage because he's like this now ... "... It can't be helped." It can't be helped this time. Originally, he didn't want to go to school. I was the one who authorized him to behave badly first by not listening to the teacher and taking a nap. Then I will take responsibility for this much. Val says "ah?" to me who drops my shoulders while leaking a sigh. After Stayle calls me, I look up. Calling to Val, I looked up at his face, still straight and evil. "One. Do not enter a locked room or area unless it is an emergency, it is a nuisance to the teacher. Two. Special abilities in the school except for emergencies and to protect yourself or others, is forbidden" Val growls at my words. If I, the owner of the contract, give a clear command, he will have no choice but to obey it. In particular, the prohibition of special abilities seemed to be quite a pain for him, and he was frustrated and angry with his teeth exposed. He didn't complain, but he was clearly dissatisfied with his arms crossed and one leg swaying in poverty. But if I don't do this, he can easily climb the rooftop or prohibited areas again. That is a big problem at the level of being called into the chairman's office. He himself should avoid getting a lot of attention. ...... Or did he think it was okay to let his special abilities be known because he will only be a temporary figure? "……instead of that" Hide my voice further. I raised on my toes and beckoned to speak in his ears, and he raised one eyebrow and curled his back. And when he heard the words, Val turned his eyes round. Furthermore, a bad smile is raised with a grin. Stayle and Arthur stop at his reaction as expected, but I close my eyes and shake my head. This time I can't help it. I can say that because I know the horror of school from my previous life. It would be difficult if there was an event outside the school where an Aniki, who is like a back-office worker, lies in wait like a bad manga battle. "And by any chance something happens...... If you face a person who seems to works behind the scenes, regardless of whether you are inside or outside the school, you can double that amount to hide your special abilities. " "Isn't it really good to spread my wings ?" "It's forbidden to call us in school. As I explained before, we're Jeanne, Philip, and Jack. We've made concessions so far, so please make concessions too." It is good? I dared to stare at him with a strongly lowered voice. He is in a good mood, standing up close and looking down at my face from above with a grin. He replied, "Leave it to me," and he gazed at me. He noticed that a high school student had arrived in the corridor, which no one had just passed through, and took a step away from me. The school has just opened, and although this corridor connecting the middle and high schools was not crowded, the number of students passing through it is not zero. Returning from the middle school building to the high school is the way back to see my brothers. It's just a story, and Stayle and Arthur ask me to go back to the classroom before it seems strange. I also nod and instruct Val to return to the classroom with just my eyes. As the general students passed by us, Val waved his hand to us with the worst smile. "Then, don't let Temee and others draw too much attention? Jeanne, Philip, Jack." Val, who dared to make fun of us by name, turned his back on us, laughing as it was. We sighed after we picked up our bags and saw him leave in the opposite mood from when he came here. And that's everything until the Brothers Arc is finished. I thought the arc was winding down, so it wouldn't be much longer, but Pryde just got abducted on her way out of cooking class... RIP, random highschool duo. We hardly knew ye.
