    Dawn overnight

    "I'm sorry. Thank you for today."
    "Don't worry. I don't promise what I can't do."

    Though cute, Vee is very masculine.

    "See you tomorrow ... or rather, it's morning and should I say tonight? Anyway, I'll come to the same time limit again. Hit the window and open it."
    "Will you come again !?"
    "Oh, it may not be possible every day, but try to come as much as possible."
    "I'm happy ...! Oh, Vee! Can you wait a moment?"

    I hurriedly called out to Vee's back, who jumped on the window sill lightly. Then, I sprinted to the writing desk beside the bed, and ran back to Vee with the cute wrapping.

    "this……"
    "Isn't it a cookie!"

    Vee's ears sway happily. I laughed unintentionally. I wonder if Vee likes sweets like the Lord.

    "Yes. The chef at my house baked delicious cookies. I wonder if he will deliver them to Viol."

    The black cat happily puts on a small basket! I pressed it with my front legs. The appearance of just telling me to leave it is very adorable.

    "Isn't it too big? Can you hold it?"
    "Ku ... but I have to bring it home ...!"

    I thought I'd give it a little lighter, but when I asked Vee, who couldn't give up, "Would you like to eat one here?", After thinking for a while, a small face nodded.

    I opened the wrapping, took out a cookie, and offered it to me. After biting, I sat down and dexterously supported the cookie with both hands and ate it.

    It was cute that he was enjoying the taste with a melty face when he put his teeth on a big cookie that was about half the size of his face.

    "Ufufu, cute. It looks just like Viol. The familiar is like the Lord."

    When he muttered such a thing, Vee opened his eyes and then shyly looked down and bite into the cookie. The familiar is also shy. I learned a lot of secrets of familiars today.

    After that, Vee, who ate the cookie at a threatening speed, stood up as soon as he said "OK!", And when he looked at me, he gave an accurate instruction.

    "Miss Selenium, from the moment you wake up tomorrow, develop the fatigue recovery magic you learned today and spend the day."

    "……Yes!"

    I wonder if I can do it well. I'm thrilled.

    "The output is the lowest. Did you keep the output down for quite some time at the end? That's about it."
    "understood"

    I see, that time had that meaning. There is no waste in teaching. I realized that I was introduced to a really good tutor.

    "Tomorrow, when you'll be at the royal salon, I'll come see you once. Don't overdo it."
    "Thank you, Vee. I realized you were a really good teacher."
    "... Hmm, it's natural."

    Vee, who proudly raised her face, was cute even though she was reliable.

    ***

    While walking down the corridor to the salon of the royal palace, I bite and kill the yawns that come up. As a result, I've only slept for about an hour, so this is unavoidable.

    "It's rare, Miss Selenium is yawning."

    Suddenly, I was surprised at the words that were given when someone lined up next to me. When I looked up, Reese, the second son of the Counts of Entertainment, looked down at me with a gentle smile.

    "Embarrassing ... I'm sorry, Reese. I'm a little short of sleep."
    "You're always trying too hard. I hope you take a rest today."

    Reese smiles gently. By the way, he was always the only one who gently looked at me when the other aides of His Highness Helios made fun of me. He is basically a kind person.

    With soft brown hair, deep gray eyes, and medium back, I secretly feel close to Reese, who looks as plain as I do. Compared to other brilliant-looking lords, he is a mysterious person who is healed just by looking at it.

    "I asked the mashuros. Since yesterday, the mashuros helped with the work that was delayed? They're the work that was left behind, so don't spoil it and let them stay. "

    And, contrary to his calm appearance, he is always tough on his job. I think he will be a good bureaucrat.

    "... By the way, Reese was absent yesterday."
    "I went to the salon once before you came. Miss Marietta came and evacuated to the library with only work early."
    "Oh dear……"
    "Maybe it's not Miss Marietta's fault, but when she comes, the mashuros stand up and it's noisy and unbearable. Now Miss Selenium should do that too."
    "It's wise"

    Reese, who gives such advice to me with a serious face, just laughs. It is this Reese who always complains more clearly than His Highness Helios to Mashro and the other three Highnesses who are so obsessed with Marietta that they can be clearly seen from the surroundings.

    Still, I'm surprisingly close to each of the four. I respected him, even though he was the same age, that he had a very good sense of balance.

    "By the way, Miss Selenium, I didn't know you could use magic."

    When Reese suddenly pointed out, I looked up as if I had been flipped.

    The translation It's not 100% accurate.
    What the person who understands

    "What's wrong, with a surprised face. Miss Selenium, you've been developing recovery magic since a while ago, right?"



    I was stunned and remembered.



    "By the way, Reese was a person with a deep knowledge of magic."


    "It's not as deep as it is. I've been to magic school for about two years, so I just know more about magic than everyone here."



    Certainly, I heard that Reese attended a magic school aiming to become a special-grade magician at one time, and transferred to the Royal Academy on the way. I wonder if those who have mastered magic will know that I continue to use magic all the time.


    If so, you will have to prepare a good excuse. I was in trouble even if I was asked too many questions, and on the contrary, I wanted to get as much information as possible, so I decided to turn to questions.



    "You can see that you are developing magic."


    "That's right, but it's a pretty advanced technique to keep developing magic with a certain strength."



    I didn't know it was an advanced technique ... I'm feeling that it's very difficult right now.



    "Miss Selenium's magic isn't stable yet, so her strengths vary, but I understand she's still trying to stabilize her, but she certainly didn't enroll in magic school, right?"


    "Yes, I only attend the Royal Academy."



    While answering, I was at a loss.


    Those who understand it will understand it even if it is not stable and struggling.


    I sigh inwardly. I wonder how to answer when asked in a hurry. It is unconvincing that it has been used for some time and that it can be used naturally. It is foreseen that they are trying to stabilize it.



    "……Ah"



    When I was making excuses in my head, Reese suddenly stopped. When I followed my line of sight, I saw His Highness Helios walking from the other side of the corridor.



    "Fufu, His Highness Helios, it looks like he talked to Miss Selenium. I'll go to the salon first."


    "Oh, Reese"



    As soon as I say it, Reese rushed into the door to the salon, which was just around the corner. I'm glad I wasn't asked strangely about magic, but it's awkward to be alone with His Highness Helios, who seems to be in a bad mood for some reason.


    Still, I couldn't ignore His Royal Highness Helios approaching me, staring straight at me, and waited for His Royal Highness's arrival in front of the salon door.



    "It looked like a lot of fun."



    A slightly frustrated voice. I wonder if he is in a bad mood.


    His Highness Helios is basically cheerful and cheerful, but sometimes he gets sullen like this.



    "What were you talking about?"


    "... It's a story that Reese used to go to a magic school."



    Choose the one that is the least difficult to say and answer. This is what I was talking about until just before, and it's not a lie, so it shouldn't be a problem.


    Then I immediately opened the salon door. To be honest, I can't help but talk to His Highness Helios right now. It was a hassle to even go to the salon. I felt it when I returned to the salon yesterday, but I can't help but feel calm because I remember everyone's conversation at that time.


    I was resentful of my weakness.



    "Oh, Reese went to a magic school, but what's that ..."


    "His Highness Helios, I've been waiting for you."


    "I have a case I would like to discuss"



    The moment I pushed the door open, the lords in the salon called out to His Royal Highness Helios all at once. It seems that Helios suddenly came up with the momentum.



    "……bad"


    "No, please get in touch with me."



    With a little laugh, I see His Highness Helios go to them. I had a questionable eye because my conversation with me was interrupted, but I dared to pretend not to notice it.



    "... You can brew tea."



    Something was restless and I stood in the kitchen. Was this space so uncomfortable?


    Everyone's attitude hasn't changed. It's a familiar sight, and I just feel alienated. I knew it, but I felt that this was no longer my place.



    "...!"



    When I finished serving tea to everyone and tried to take my seat, I saw a black shadow outside the salon window.


    Vee has come!


    When I look at me for a moment, Vee disappears from the window as soon as I tell him to follow me. When I noticed, I was standing up.



    "selenium?"


    "Sorry, I remember a little urgent need ... I'll be back soon."



    His Highness Helios calls out to me, but I just return it. When I got out of the salon pretending to be as calm as possible, I rushed from there at a glance.


    A small black body flutters down in front of me as I run.



    "Don't rush, you're out of magic. You don't have to run, so focus on maintaining your magic. I'm waiting on the bench I talked to the Lord the other day."



    I left that much and ran.


    Is true. Before I knew it, the magic had run out again. It's been like this since this morning. If you don't keep conscious, it will be cut off immediately. Continuing to develop magic was a lot harder than I expected.
    The translation It's not 100% accurate.

    Edit***
    I read a chapter on the novel that there are people crushing on Mc like her fiancee cause there was a chapt of his jeolousy, Rease? ( IDK the spelling:blobsweat_2:) Mashuro and etc.??
    But the chapt that they all danced with mc on the evening party with Viol taking the initiative first after the first dance with mc and her fiance:blobsmilehappyeyes:. Mashuro was known to be a follower of Mc sister but has crush on mc I think cause he blushed hard....
    Mc sister is not a white lotus unlike other sisters in other novels or manhwa but she has feelings for Mc fiance, and Mc knows it. The sister also worries about Mc overworking her body.
    Mc sister also gave Mc a pretty good advice:blobsmilehappy:
    I read the latest I think chapter on the novel that is raw that Mc already told her parents and they are supportive of her and feel a little sad because Mc told her reasons to become a special grade magician started two months ago when Mc heard from the salon that her sister is a better queen candidate than Mc ( from the summary) and Mc genuinely enjoys doing magic now and is happy. father is a musian I think??? Before this though Mc already submitted her registration to become a special grade magician and she has talent:aww:
    Viol talked about this to his friend Boden to help with rumors I think or settle the situation down when Mc breaks her engagement and becomes a special grade magician. Boden thought of the idiot four who bought this situation from the summary about how they spoke about this loudly in the salon to be heard By Mc outside the door and reflect on The fiance for not denying it.

    "Of course, the idiots who were talking about such things in the salon with a voice that could be heard outside the door are too sweet on the side. The same is true for His Royal Highness. Have them learn for themselves what kind of result careless remarks will bring. It needs to be done, and each parent will need to reinforce their education. "

    "Still, if you suddenly break your engagement after becoming a high-class magician, there will be rumors among the aristocrats that aren't under the surface. I need to talk to the other heavyweights as well. I want the young Chancellor to follow the flow of the story at that time. "

    "I gently covered the faint love that had sprung up." - helios:blob_teary:

    MC fiancee, prince helios. he look like your typical perfect prince. good looking, fast learner and charismatic. but in reality he is awkward, clumsy and doesnt really understand other people hearts. at first he only engaged with MC as duty but later fallen for MC, when he realized his feeling he unable to talk to MC and kinda avoiding her like boy in love... however its fueling MC misunderstanding about him not liking her.

    since MC is a genius he always work hard so he is able to keep up with her, he is ready to carry the burden together as future king and queen... however he never convey his feeling to MC for various reason (mostly because he is busy with his study, his work as crown prince and cowardice even though he want to spend some time with MC)

    He got really jealous if MC close with other boys, especially when MC joyfully dance with viol/magic division commander(?)/potential ML. he is wondering if MC also feel jealousy when he dance with other girl? he also always make sure to dance and talk with marietta/MC sister so he can ask her about MC like What kind of flower do she like, what color do she like, what she want to do, etc.

    when MC finally told him that she is applying to be a high class magician he is horrified, because if she passed the test then their engagement will be annulled because a high class magician are very valuable and so she cant become a queen. he ask why she didnt tell him?! she told him its because of helios and his friends conversation 2 month ago. he tried to remember... then it hit him that MC hear their conversation because mashros (the tsundere guy) are really loud about MC not suitable as a queen because of her plain appareance and marietta are much better choice because she is prettier. he tried to explain that mashros didnt mean it (especially since mashros actually liked MC).

    MC then show him her battle record against a mid-level magic beast, he is surprised she actually able to fight a mid-level beast alone when he only able to defeat low-level magic beast. MC is really happy to learn magic as if she found her reason to live. he ask if there any other reason she want to break the engagement? is it because she not satisfied with the engagement or him?

    MC explain that is not the case at all because she always work hard to learn to be a good queen... that day (after she heard their conversation) she cried a lot especially since he didnt refute mashros at all (his reason because he knew mashros didnt actually mean it), he also didnt realized that she cried that day... MC apologize for not realizing that helios are unhappy with their engagement, helios tried to refute that its not the case at all! he always doing his best so he can keep up with her and after they got married they will finally can spend some time together...

    MC confused then what about marietta? helios are also confused why she bring marietta into this, he have no special feeling for her at all, he didnt remember treating her specially. MC explain because helios always danced with Marietta at every evening party, and even though he was in a different grade, he seemed to have more opportunities to talk with marietta than other daughters at the academy, so MC sure that helios like marietta and assure him that she didnt hate him. he frowned that he is too focused on what he had to do and forgot about what its look like to other people.

    now he painfully realized that he failed on basic human interaction. Similarly, he also unaware that MC was hurt by the devious remarks, and now she decided to abandon her position as a his fiancee and become high-grade magician. he is shocked by the magnitude of the result of a casual words. he tried again to explain that mashros are not serious at all... he also kinda regret to not take his servants complain seriously about mashros brash word and loud voice.

    but MC explained no matter if helios or mashros are serious or not, she now really want to be a magician. he realized that she keep moving foward, he realized that she is 100% determinated, so he cant really convinced her at all... all because he didnt defended her that day... since MC has the abilities he can only support her now...

    she is a good child and have a pretty face. she love her sister but also love helios. her only sin is that she didnt help helios get closer with her sister when he ask her about MC because she also like him... so she can spend her time together with helios while she still can (before they got married)

    she also felt inferior to MC and helios, because she lack brain power. among her friends, her academic progress are slower and really frustrated by her own shortcoming... not because she is stupid but because her peers are special. when MC or helios tutoring her with patience since she need take some time to learn, she felt really embarrassed and guilty. she felt that she can only be a pretty and nice flower to look at.

    so when MC told her about the broken engagement and wishing her happiness with helios, instead of happiness marietta felt an incredible pressure. not only she hurt her sister now she need to take her place as queen? she cant even be compared to other ladies let alone her genius sister. She cannot tell MC confidently that she will able to overcome what ever comes next. she cant do it like MC, she didnt know that everything is so difficult. when things are hard or sad she cant brush it off calmly like MC. words of apology leaked through her mouth even though she didnt know what she apologized for...

    it will be soon... since in the latest chapter MC will announce that she will applying to be a special magician and annul her engagement.
    i can spoil some regret, beside helios there is at very least 2 people so far who despaired because of MC decision.

    prince helios mother, queen sheilla.
    she really like MC and regard her as her own daughter, she cant wait for the day that they finally become family for real.

    after MC confess to helios, she and her father along with viol and bowden(?)/viol old friend/chancellor go to the royal castle to asking permission to break the engagement and demonstrating MC magical capabilities while helios looking at her in regret. the king/helios father deem MC as more than capable to be a special magician and allow the annulment.

    the queen cant accept reality and devastated. the entire meeting she desperate and tried to bargain that MC should be the mother of country while the king calmly retort that a special magician are like a golden goose for the country, she will help the country and people more being a magician than being a queen (the magician can protect people from monster/disaster and developing magical tools, very valuable indeed!).

    the teary eyed queen just cant let MC go to the frontline and she regard her as her own daughter, so how can she let her go! however the king explain since the queen regard MC as her own daughter, she should also consider of MC decision and ask the queen to look at MC eyes, you can see that MC really determined and wanted to be a magician. the queen finally give up and silently cried...

    the sister live a carefree life as second daughter, she doesnt really need to study hard like MC and just maintaining her looks and smile.
    at first she taught that MC being genius are normal since she always work hard to be a queen, she think if she also work hard like MC she also can do it and more or less can be a better queen since she is prettier than her.

    however after MC want to be a magician (no one knows about this yet) she decide to invite marietta to join their study circle (along with other new student, 2 males and 2 females, some of them are commoners. marietta are the youngest among them like 2 year younger) so marietta will have some idea how to be a queen. marietta are happy since she can have a chance to be queen and more opportunities to meet with helios and mashros and reese.

    however when mashros tried to casual to her and invite her for a tea at the salon (while helios and the other student are not arrived yet), reese scold mashros to not give her any special treatment while in salon, his behaviour can offend other student and reese actually serious for once (reese is like the happy-go-lucky type). since it make sense, from this point onward mashros act professional to her in the salon.

    at first MC are always at marietta side and the one who teach her, but after MC being busy with her magic study she rarely go to the salon so marietta can only rely on her self. without MC by her side, the salon are actually quite intimidating since the student there are really eager to study and smart. she slowly aware that she cant keep up with other student even thought she work really hard (she even ask for a tutor so she can still study at her free time), the other 2 female student can grasp the material quickly like a sand absorbing water while she need some time to actually understand. MC tried to reassure her that she is younger than any of them and should not beat up her self about it, she should keep studying at her own pace. helios also said the same thing, but every time she make mistakes on some questions (quite frequently unfortunately) she felt embarrassed on how slow her progress compared to everyone.

    the study are hard and the boys didnt give her attention while in the salon. going to the salon are now quite exhausting for her... and after MC told her about her new goal to be a magician and her plan to annul the engagement (like my previous spoiler), marietta and helios have some... dispute (although the novel didnt specify their problem yet) she ran away crying and slip on stair, MC use her magic to save her and she go back home with her father while crying... and after this MC will tell helios like on my previous spoiler.

    How does the parent interact with the mc? Are they fair to both sister or is there some bias?
