I wrote in my last letter that my school life has been going well recently.

Yes, it’s true, and I was really feeling good about it.

But now, I’m in the biggest crisis ever.

“. . .Eek!!!”

I barely escaped from the classroom where the hellish magic detector was placed, and waiting for me in the hallway were masses of people, people, people.

“Claudia!”

“Claudia-san.”

“Miss ClaudiaーーaaaaAAAA!!!!!”

“Hii, hii, hii, hii, eeeh!!!”

I broke the hallway window and ran outside while crying. There’s no damage from breaking the glass because I have physical enhancement magic, and I landed successfully even though it was the third floor. I took a breath of fresh air outside, free from the dense crowd――but it didn’t last.

People started gathering from everywhere with a thud.

People, no, my respected classmates, seniors, and teachers, but there were just too many of them and I couldn’t understand. Without even having time to apologize for my rough categorization, I ran away again.

Run, but where to?

My magic-infused black mist covered the entire school.

For now, I climbed up to high places as I found them.

People who were affected by my charm magic seemed to know where I was, and they found me no matter where I hid.

However, and I hate to say this, their thinking ability seemed to be significantly reduced due to the high concentration of charm magic, so I found that it wasn’t that difficult to escape even when surrounded.

So, I climbed up to high places with physical enhancement magic, and if they caught up, I jumped down, lured them as much as I could, and climbed up again. . . This was the best way to buy time.

(. . .I’m just running away, but what will happen to me if I actually get caught. . .?)

I didn’t understand, but somehow, I felt a threat to my chastity. No, maybe I would just be petted and played with. . . But the sight of a large mass of people, regardless of age or gender, rushing towards me was terrifying beyond comparison.

The situation was completely different from when I was unconsciously using charm magic. . . It seems. Back then, people didn’t approach me directly unless I was close or had some kind of contact. But now, everyone who was affected by the charm magic was rushing towards me, it was truly a runaway situation.

The State Temple I visited some time ago. The charm magic I tried to learn but couldn’t.

If I had properly learned charm magic at that time and could handle it correctly, I might have been able to stop everyone in their runaway state. 

(. . .No. Everyone is like this because of my magic. I don’t know why they’re affected by charm magic like this, but this is happening because of my magic. I should be able to do something about it.)

I don’t know exactly how to control charm magic or how to stop everyone who’s running wild. But I have to do it. It’s my fault that this is happening, so I should be able to do something. If I can do something, I have to!

Sniffling, I looked down at everyone from the roof of a tall building. People were climbing up the outer wall and approaching. First, take a deep breath. Concentrate.

(Please, please, calm down. . .!)

I refined my magic. I crossed my hands in front of my chest and slowly exhaled. A feeling like a fire slowly lighting up in the furnace in the middle of my chest filled my body. I searched for the whereabouts of my magic that had scattered on the black mist, one by one. 

There’s still time. It will take another 30 seconds, 20 seconds. . .10, 9. . . for the person climbing the wall to reach here. With each throb of my heart, the wave of people is getting closer. Ah, they’re almost here. When my heart beats particularly hard, I lose track of where the core of the magic I was about to grasp is. . .

(. . .!)

A body much larger than mine was already right in front of me.

I unconsciously step back, frightened by the bloodshot eyes. I gasp at the hand reaching out.

Almost at the same time, someone grabs my arm and pulls me in.

My heart beats loudly.

“――Hey!!!”

“. . .Your Highness!”

I turn to the person who pulled my arm. Strong-willed blue eyes were glaring at me. A sharp voice that could make one shrink. But, the moment I heard his voice, the tension I had felt relaxed instantly.

I clung to His Highness with the momentum of being pulled in. His Highness, while holding me, skillfully dodges the approaching crowd.

“I’m, I’m glad, Your Highness. . . I’m glad to see you. . .”

I sigh in relief. But, that was only for a moment.

His Highness is now in a white shirt, without his usual Evil-Banishing Items jingling on his cloak.

“Your Highness! Your Highness, now, the Evil-Banishing Items are. . .”

Even His Highness might be under the spell of my charm magic if he inhaled the black mist containing my magic without the Evil-Banishing Items. And if someone like His Highness inhaled the mist, it might be okay, but it might be dangerous if he was in close contact with me in his bare state.

Thanks to the training with His Highness, I have gained confidence in controlling my magic, but I don’t have confidence that I can control my magic in the same way under these circumstances. I think my charm magic, which I am unconsciously deploying in this emergency, is leaking out.

“. . .Hmph, you! Are you underestimating me!”

“Huh.”

His Highness pulls me in tightly as I try to pull away in a hurry.

In His Highness’s large blue eyes, my face, wide-eyed in a pathetic way, was reflected.

“There’s no way I’d be fooled by your level of charm magic!”

“. . .Your Highness. . .”

“Hide behind me. While I’m protecting you, you calm down that charm magic.”

“Ye. . .Yes, Your Highness!”

His Highness, who scolds me with a disrespectful face. The [confidence] in himself and the [trust] in me that I feel from his strong gaze looking straight at me.

His Highness runs while holding me, puts some distance from everyone, puts me down on the ground, and then shows a big hand to the crowd.

A dazzling light was emitted. It’s the barrier magic shield that His Highness deployed.

Behind it, I take a deep breath again and refocus. I search for my scattered magic that I had almost grasped and let go.

His Highness’s back is so. . . wide and big.

Even at a time like this, I notice such a thing. There’s probably no other back that I can feel so reliable.

A warmth was slowly lighting up in my chest.

So that the people under the charm magic can know where I, the caster, am, I can also know where the magic power of the charm magic is. I suck out all the magic power that has entered everyone’s bodies and return it. 

I think this is the only way to stop the rampage. If I had the power to completely control the charm magic, there might have been another way. . . I can’t give orders to the people under the charm magic by my own will. If I could give orders, I wouldn’t have made everyone go berserk like this.

I closed my eyes. I concentrate my consciousness even deeper. If His Highness is here, it’s okay to close my eyes.

(. . .!)

I find my magic power in everyone’s bodies in the school. And then, I grab all of it and suck it up――!

[You’re really going to do it in such a stupid way. You’re a real fool, you.]

The moment I accomplished such a stupid thing. For some reason, the face of His Highness, who said that in a slightly mean but kind way, came to my mind.

“. . .I’m, I’m tired. . .”

I leaned against the trunk of a large tree behind the school building, sighing heavily. 

“Of course. You were deploying magic on such a ridiculous scale, and on top of that,you were forcibly gathering all the scattered magic with an absurdly forceful method, so it’s only natural that you’d be exhausted, no matter how stupid you are.”

“Ugh, I was treated as a fool, not an idiot. . .”

But personally, I feel that being called an idiot is a bit softer than being called a fool. Isn’t that so? Or does it not matter?

Today’s physical measurements somehow ended as planned. Conveniently, everyone had lost their memory of the time when they were under the charm magic. I wonder if it’s because I absorbed the magic that was causing mischief? When everyone regained consciousness, the whole school was filled with question marks, as if to say, “Huh? Why am I here?”

It was a day of measurement where if I just went with the flow, the day would end, and that was a good thing. If there had been a full practical lesson, I might have exploded.

And then, as usual, I came to the back of the school building out of habit, and as usual, His Highness was there (with his jingling cloak), so I completely let my guard down and collapsed. 

After a while of being exhausted, I slowly got up and looked up at His Highness’s always perfect face, tilting my head.

“. . .Your Highness, why were you okay?”

“. . .Hmph. What a foolish question.”

Even though there were no Evil-Banishing Items, His Highness was not affected by the charm magic, even though he was defenseless and super close to me, and even though the black mist that covered the entire school indiscriminately.

His Highness sneered at me and dramatically flipped his large cloak. The cloak that flew high, the Evil-Banishing Items that made a good jingling sound.

“I acknowledge your magical power, but even so, I have more! And better! Quality of magic! Furthermore, this steel-like mental strength, toughness! I am not one to be dominated by your charm magic!!!”

“Your, Your Highness. . .!”

His Highness, who laughs more defiantly than anyone else with his chest puffed out.

With the setting sun on his back, his figure was even divine due to the backlight.

What should I do, it’s amazing. . . My heart is throbbing. . . 

Even though he’s so insolent. . .!

Somehow, I started to tear up a little.

“Your Highness. . . you’re cool. . .”

“Of course! What are you sighing about!”

When I heard the sound of one of the Evil-Banishing Items exploding, I felt truly relieved.
