“Today is finally the day I go to school. . . I have to do my best.”

I put on my uniform and gather my resolve.

The uniform is simple, consisting of a white blouse and a deep red skirt. However, it seems that the nobles modify their uniforms.

Adding lace is standard, and some even embellish with jewels; there are various designs. Different ladies and factions have their own unique rules and matching accessories.

. . .I don’t think I can remember all this.

For the record, I am wearing the unmodified, plain uniform.

It’s a statement that I’ve come from another country and have no intention of assimilating. It’s like I’m picking a fight.

I don’t like the idea of picking a fight just by what I wear, but the cute uniform does lift my spirits.

The collarless white silk blouse has pearl buttons, and the deep red flared skirt sways beautifully with each step.

I’m not good at walking in stiletto heels, so I opted for wedge-soled shoes. It wouldn’t be great if people found out, but I couldn’t get used to stilettos in just a week.

The soles are transparent, and small jewels are scattered over these cute shoes.

“This should be fine. Even if people stare, the novelty will probably win out,” Chris reassured me so I had the skirt lengthened to cover my shoes.

Chris took the shoes I was wearing to a shoemaker to have new ones made in a hurry.

. . .I think any woman would understand how I felt when I heard that.

The idea of having the shoes I was wearing being examined was so embarrassing, I thought I’d die. It’s a terrible ordeal.

“I wonder if Thor will be okay. . .”

I didn’t know there were so many strange local rules at the school. Thor is quick-witted but also obstinate, so I’m worried.

After a final check in the full-length mirror, I left the room. Since I’ll be using a magical tool to change my face, there’s no point in grooming my face or hair, but Chris made me look really nice.

“I’m sorry to have kept you waiting.”

Everyone was already waiting, and I started to rush over but was stopped by the bodysuit.

“Miss Norchev. . .or rather, Alice.”

Being called by Roa-sama in that deep, velvety voice sent shivers down my spine.

“You look very good in it. . . .You’re very beautiful.”

“T, Thank you. You look wonderful too, Roa-sama.”

Roa-sama and everyone else are wearing matching servant uniforms. Black shirts and pants, white vests. Even though the only decorations are golden braid trims, they all look very good in them.

These clothes signify that they are servants of Tianne.

“You might not be used to being called that way, but bear with it. If I call you Miss Norchev, your identity as a Norchev family member will be immediately revealed. Of course, I’ll call you Ojou-sama outside, but this is just in case.”

“. . .Yes.”

“Were you never called Ojou-sama before?”

“I have, but. . .”

I’ve never been surrounded by such good-looking men and called Ojou-sama before.

Could it be that I’m getting used to good-looking guys? School will be a breeze even if it’s filled with them!

 ㅤ

The hope I had was immediately shattered.

“I apologize for the delay. I will follow up at any time, so please refrain from making careless remarks and leave it to me.”

“Ah. . .!”

What suddenly appeared was an incredibly handsome young man. His face was glowing.

I instinctively hid behind Edgardo, who is the biggest among us. I wanted to back away, but my bodysuit wouldn’t allow it.

“Please calm down, Miss Alice. That’s Chris over there.”

Reassured by Edgardo, I caught my breath.

“Chris. . .? Really?”

I peeked out from behind Edgardo’s broad back to stare at the handsome young man.

His eyes were single-lidded and long, with a straight nose. His lips were slightly larger than when he was dressed as a maid.

When he was a maid, his eyes were double-lidded and his eyelashes were prominent. Just a change in the eyes made a huge difference in impression.

His golden hair was braided into a single plait at the back. He was probably around the same age as Thor, in his mid-teens.

“Um. . . are you Chris?”

“Yes, I apologize for surprising you.”

“No, it’s just me being scared of slender, handsome guys for no reason. . .”

The Fourth Knight Order was also filled with good-looking men, but they were all bulky, so I could maintain my poker face.

Baldwin, who interviewed me when I joined the Order, had me bracing for the possibility of handsome men, and I was wearing my public mask, so I could stay calm even when a slender good-looking guy appeared.

But now it’s different. It feels like something I’m not good with suddenly appeared when I was off guard.

“I, I’m sorry. Please wait a moment.”

I closed my eyes and took deep breaths. This is the time for self-suggestion.

. . .Chris is Thor’s friend. A friend that Thor brought home. Chris is Thor’s friend!

When I abruptly opened my eyes, they met with the glowing handsome young man.

“Ah, it’s no good. . .! Thor would never bring such a good-looking guy home!”

Thor knows that I’m not good with handsome men. Plus, he has this strange thought process where he believes that any man who comes to our house will inevitably fall for me, so he wouldn’t bring a guy like this.

“I apologize. Even though I knew Ojou-sama is not good with the opposite sex, I didn’t show my face until today. I should have given you time to get used to it. What should we do. . .”

“It’s not Chris’s fault! It’s mine!”

I tried to leap out from behind Edgardo but was stopped by the bodysuit. I took small steps to face Chris head-on.

. . .I’m not scared. Chris, who has been very kind to me so far, wouldn’t do anything bad.

“I’m sorry for being scared. Chris did nothing wrong. . . .I’m okay now. I’ve even gotten used to your glowing face.”

“My face is glowing. . .?”

“There’s a very slight chance that my brother Thor could have had a face like this. In other words, parallel-world Thor.”

It’s a stretch, but there’s no time right now; I have to forcefully convince myself.

“I’m sorry, but until I get used to that face, let’s go with the setting that you’re my brother who somehow grew up competent in a parallel world!”

“Understood.”

Chris is an extremely competent servant. Even if he doesn’t understand, he nods without asking any questions.

“Today, I, who am familiar with the campus, along with Roa-sama and Rolf-sama, will be serving as Ojou-sama’s attendants. Please, rest assured.”

“. . .Yes.”

Chris opens the door.

With trembling legs, I somehow manage to take a step forward.
