“This one, she has a natural talent for charm magic. . . She should have mostly been able to control it. . . But. . .”

“Especially when it comes to, well, His Highness. . .”

The adorable girl called Claudia blushed slightly and gave a wry smile.

“. . .So, the threat at His Highness’s academy. . . was her. . .?”

“That’s right.”

When Tim nervously voiced this, she widened her large eyes in surprise at His Highness, who nodded solemnly.

“But, Your Highness?! What do you mean by ‘threat’?”

“It means exactly what it sounds like. Even with numerous Evil-Banishing Items, it’s not enough when you’re around, constantly unleashing your charm magic.”

“You’ve been telling people around you that I’m a threat?!”

“There’s no other way to explain it.”

With a pitiful sigh, the girl hung her head and dropped her shoulders.

This adorable girl had been continuously shattering His Highness’s Evil-Banishing protection. Tim involuntarily swallowed hard.

His Highness, who was looking down at her with a mischievous smile while crossing his arms, seemed strangely amused at her dejected state. 

(Your Highness! If you tease her too much, she’ll hate you!)

From Tim’s perspective, it was clear that His Highness was smitten with her. But this was something only Tim, a seasoned veteran who knew His Highness since childhood, could understand. Rather than finding it amusing, Tim watched with a sense of unease.

(. . .However, I see. . . Your Highness. . .)

Tim was a third-generation maker of Evil-Banishing protections. Although Tim himself had no magical powers and had never attended the Magic Academy, he understood the mission of the accessories he created. He prided himself on having a deeper understanding of magic, such as curses and charm, than any court magician.

The power of charm magic increases with the strength of the caster’s magical power, but it is also greatly influenced by individual emotions. The more favorable the caster is towards the target, the easier it is for the charm magic to take effect. Therefore, powerful casters of charm magic are often beautiful men and women.

(If she can naturally handle charm magic, perhaps there was someone in her ancestry who used charm magic)

Looking at Claudia’s eye-catching cuteness, Tim speculated this. Surely her parents must also be good-looking.

And then, the fact that the prodigy Albert, said to be the best in the royal family’s history, was shattering an extraordinary number of Evil-Banishing protections against her. The sweet atmosphere that hung between the two.

(. . .Your Highness is head over heels in love!!!)

The Prince had never neglected his magical training since he was a child. While wearing Evil-Banishing protections, he had also been constantly training to increase his own magical resistance. Until he entered the Magic Academy, The Prince’s Evil-Banishing protections rarely broke.

The fact that they started to shatter easily and in large numbers as soon as he entered the Magic Academy a year ago, could only be explained by The Prince having strong feelings for this girl.

Tim couldn’t help but recall the time when The Prince first shattered an Evil-Banishing protection, and when he started to break many of them. His Highness’s cough brought Tim back to reality. 

“. . .So, I want to increase the strength of the Evil-Banishing protections. Would you be willing to help?”

“Ah, yes. That’s right. . .”

“Currently, we’re somehow managing, but it’s just a stopgap measure.”

Tim nodded. Considering the consumption of the Evil-Banishing protections, it was indeed just a stopgap measure.

(It’s technically possible. However, it would reduce the ability to mass-produce. . . It’s meaningless unless we can achieve a strength that can completely suppress Miss Claudia’s charm magic, which is a formidable power for His Highness)

In that case, the current policy of countering with sheer numbers might be better.

“Um, then, Miss. Excuse me.”

“What is this?”

“It’s a kind of magic detection device. . . Yes, charm magic is not activated right now.”

He held up one of the devices specialized in detecting charm magic, which he had prepared in his workshop, in front of Claudia. The needle seated in the center of the brass disc did not move.

“Before, it was like a constant leak, but now you’ve basically learned to control it.”

“I see. . . However,”

(When the atmosphere becomes good and they start to flirt. . . it comes out. . .?!)

Tim, who is well-versed in charm magic, realized this. The power of charm magic is not only influenced by the goodwill of the recipient. The strength of the goodwill directed by the caster also greatly affects it.

“. . .Your Highness. I will leave this with you. Can you please check the number indicated by the needle when Miss Claudia’s charm magic is activated?”

“. . .Understood.”

Probably, it won’t be as effective as the number suggests. Their mutual goodwill should be multiplying to create a much more powerful charm magic.

The Prince received it with a slight frown, but Tim, who had known him for a long time, guessed that it was due to the embarrassment of sensing the implication of “please check it when you’re flirting.”

They had gone out of their way to visit together. It would be settled on the spot if they showed it in front of him, but Tim was not so tactless as to say so.

“That’s right. . . Also, should we measure the amount of magic power itself?”

“Ah, I, when I tried to measure my magic power at the academy before, I broke the machine.”

“What?”

“――Assume that she has a disaster-class. . . ancient dragon-class magic power.”

“Ancient dragon?! Are you serious, Your Highness?!”

Claudia looked up at His Highness with a face that couldn’t believe it, but Tim nodded deeply. Considering the synergistic effect of their mutual goodwill, it should be assumed that charm magic is being deployed on that scale.

The charm magic that can now be controlled and only accidentally comes out against The Prince, Claudia was deploying charm magic against all humans in the academy, regardless of age, gender, students, faculty, staff, and dorm mothers, when she first entered the academy, His Highness continued to explain.

(Was it really a disaster-class ancient dragon?)

Tim heightened his tension again for what he was about to do.

“. . .”

“Is it tough, Workshop Master?”

“No, that’s right. . . This old bone has the greatest challenge.”

“Don’t push yourself.”

His Highness spoke to Tim, who had a stern face. When Tim responded with a strong raise of his eyebrows, His Highness smiled gently.

“I will continue to encourage Claudia to improve her control techniques. . . Of course, I intend to increase my own magic resistance. Workshop Master, It’s going to be tough but. . . Let’s work together.”

“Yes, of course, Your Highness!”

“I, I’ll do my best! Thank you!”

The Workshop Master, Tim, and the loyal craftsmen were greatly excited.
