The season is winter. The air outside is cold, but the sun is warm and it’s a beautiful afternoon.

His Highness and I had advanced a grade.

It’s been a year since we entered the academy. It feels like it’s gone by in a flash, but also like it’s been a long time. . . When I think about how I’ve spent almost half of my school life with His Highness, I feel a little embarrassed.

We’re relaxing in our usual spot behind the second school building, basking in the sun. As I gaze at His Highness’s profile sitting right next to me and giggle, a loud pop comes from under His Highness’s cloak.

Eh. . . That was. . . not good. . .

I stare at His Highness in surprise. His Highness frowns his well-shaped eyebrows and clears his throat.

“That was. . .”

“It’s your fault.”

“Eh?”

I was just thinking how happy I am to be able to relax with His Highness, but it seems that my charm magic leaked out due to my relaxed mood. And then, pop.

. . .It happens quite often. Pop.

“. . .Your Highness. I’ve been thinking about something.”

“What is it?”

“I know my charm magic is the cause, but. . . isn’t there also a problem on the receiving end. . .?”

“You’re saying there’s a problem with me?”

His double-lidded, elongated blue eyes narrow sharply.

“Well, what I mean is, if every time His Highness feels a throb for me, the Evil-Banishing Items explode, then doesn’t His Highness. . . need to make an effort too. . .?! I mean. . .”

“. . .”

“. . .Um.”

As I shyly look at the prince’s handsome face, which stands out even more when he’s serious, I make a wry smile and tap my fingers together in front of my chest.

It’s embarrassing to say it myself, but the reason His Highness’s Evil-Banishing Items burst when I’m with him is basically this.

When I think His Highness is “cool!” or feel my heart pounding, my charm magic, which I should be controlling, leaks out.

His Highness has a strong natural resistance to magic, but when it comes to me, it seems that the charm magic works better when he feels a throb, and that’s why the Evil-Banishing Items explode.

In other words, when the prince and I are in a good mood, the Evil-Banishing Items pops. 

I was supposed to be able to control my charm magic by learning how to use it and understanding the sensation of activating it after unsealing the charm magic that was sealed in the State Temple!

In reality, I’m not always letting my charm magic flow when I’m with the prince. I can usually control it. But, it just leaks out at certain times.

Like this, like this, like this. . . I can’t even put it into words in my head, but it’s like this.

“――That’s not to say I haven’t considered it.”

His Highness’s low voice resonates.

It seems that the wise prince understood my clumsy words. I’m relieved.

“There’s definitely a problem on my end as well. I can’t deny that. I admit it. I’ve been telling you to keep trying, and I can’t just sit back and act superior.”

“Your, Your Highness!”

I can’t help but feel a throb at His Highness’s words. I think my charm magic just leaked out. ――But this time, the Evil-Banishing Items didn’t explode. Maybe it’s because His Highness is seriously responding to what I said. 

“. . .charm magic is especially effective against those who have feelings for you.”

“Yes, you’ve said that before.”

“So, to put it bluntly. . . I’m incredibly weak to you.”

“. . .Eh?”

The prince’s clear, double-lidded eyes were staring straight at me.

“If I didn’t have the protection of the Evil-Banishing Item, I would have been done in by your charm magic a long time ago.”

“Your Highness. . .”

It was clear from the fact that the Evil-Banishing Items were popping cheerfully. His Highness frowned in distress, put his hand to his mouth, and sighed.

“I need to do something. I think. . . “

“. . .?”

“To weaken the effect of your charm magic. . . no, to increase my resistance, that would mean telling myself that I don’t care about you at all.”

“Is that. . . what it would mean. . .?”

“That’s not what I want. That’s why it’s troubling.”

“Hmm. . .”

His Highness seemed genuinely troubled. 

“But, um, isn’t there something. . . Can’t we do something about it? Of course, I’ll work on improving the accuracy of my charm magic, but Your Highness. . . um, isn’t there something. . .?”

I couldn’t quite grasp what to do or what to say to solve the problem, and as I fumbled for words while spinning the potter’s wheel, His Highness raised an eyebrow.

“What a vague way of speaking.”

“Um, well, I mean, what should I say, or what should I do. . .”

“. . .Claudia.”

“Y, Yes.”

When my name was called, I straightened up. We had called each other by our names on the day of our confession, but we still mostly called each other “Your Highness,” “you(貴様/𝐤𝐢𝐬𝐚𝐦𝐚)”, or “you(お前𝐨𝐦𝐚𝐞)” in casual times because it made us nervous and increased the chance of a charm magic explosion. By the way, I feel like the rate of “you(お前𝐨𝐦𝐚𝐞)” has increased rather than “you(貴様/𝐤𝐢𝐬𝐚𝐦𝐚).”

𝐀𝐰𝐞𝐛𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐬: 

(貴様/𝐤𝐢𝐬𝐚𝐦𝐚): 𝐑𝐮𝐝𝐞 𝐨𝐫 𝐨𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐢𝐯𝐞 “𝐲𝐨𝐮” 

(お前/𝐨𝐦𝐚𝐞): 𝐈𝐧𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐦𝐚𝐥 𝐨𝐫 𝐜𝐚𝐬𝐮𝐚𝐥 “𝐲𝐨𝐮”

So, when my name is called, I can’t help but get nervous.

I look into His Highness’s blue eyes with a pounding heart. His Highness, still looking a bit grumpy, opened his mouth. 

“――What’s wrong with me liking you!!!”

“E. . .Eh?!”

Did he just come out?!

(Did, did I, just, get, told something amazing?!)

I was so surprised that my eyes widened, and then my cheeks started to heat up with a delay.

His Highness’s face was dead serious. It was a seriousness that even felt dignified. I couldn’t deny His Highness’s words, so I shook my head.

Seeing me like this, His Highness nodded and smiled slightly.

His expression was a bit smug. I don’t think there are many people who can be so defiant and arrogant.

His Highness prefaced his next words with “That being said,” and his face became serious again.

“. . .But, it’s a problem if I can’t woo you properly. If you’re worried about it too, it’s perfect. Keep your next day off open, I have something I want your help with.”

“Wo, Woo me?”

“What, you don’t want to be wooed by me?”

“Huh, huh.”

His Highness’s puzzled face came closer. Seeing me blinking in confusion, His Highness narrowed his eyes slightly.

“. . .”

“I like you.”

“Eek.”

Boom. 

With just one word, I let out my charm magic and blew up one of His Highness’s Evil-Banishing Items. His Highness sighed dramatically and shrugged his shoulders.

“――This is getting us nowhere.”

“I’m, I’m sorry.”

“Well, it’s helpful that it’s easy to understand.”

Even though the Evil-Banishing Items had burst, His Highness was smiling a little more cheerfully than before for some reason.

(. . .By that logic, isn’t His Highness also easy to understand. . .)

As I tilted my head in thought, His Highness gently pulled me closer by the waist and brought his face even closer.

“So, Your Highness, um. . .”

“If you don’t mind, that’s fine.”

I can’t be affected by charm magic, His Highness whispered lowly. It tickled and made me squirm.

The air was somehow sweet. It reminded me of the slightly risqué romance novels that were popular among my dorm friends and were being borrowed and lent.

As I blushed and turned bright red, His Highness stroked my hair with a small smile, looking a little troubled and lowering his eyebrows. When I looked up at him, our eyes met and His Highness’s palm slid down my cheek. The force of his arm around my waist increased slightly, and then. . . 

Boom!!! An inappropriate explosion sound echoed through the room.

His Highness clicked his tongue. Even though he’s a prince. Clicking his tongue. I wonder if he learned it in school life.

“. . .I can’t compete with this every time.”

As soon as His Highness’s hand left to adjust his cloak, I quickly put some distance between us and pointed my trembling fingers at His Highness.

That, that. . . that sweet atmosphere. . .

“Weren’t you thinking something a little naughty just now?!”

“――Huh? You. . . I see.”

(I see?!)

His Highness was momentarily taken aback by my loud voice, but for some reason, he seemed to understand something on his own and quickly flashed a wicked smile.

What? Why?

What did he understand?

“Well, I’ll keep that in mind for the future.”

(He, he’s definitely thinking something naughty!)

Unable to stand the sweet atmosphere, I decided that and glared at His Highness, holding back my tears.

His Highness had a somewhat playful and mischievous look on his face.

Well, that aside, we were to visit the workshop where His Highness’s Evil-Banishing Items was being made this weekend.
