Limited Time, Kitchen Maid of the Fourth Knight Order ~I Got a Job Because I Don’t Want to Get Married~ – Chapter 84

𝐇𝐞𝐫𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐀𝐭𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐛𝐮𝐭𝐞

The gazes converge on Marina.

Emitting a tiny gasp, Marina shrank her body and looked down.

It’s hard to tell because of the thick glasses and braided hair, but Marina is probably a beautiful girl.

“Oh, I. . . am alone at school. I can speak like a noble if I try, but apparently I have a dialect. I’m too scared of being laughed at to talk, so I don’t have friends, just alone. . . Now, Thor and Thor’s friends are the only ones who talk to me.”

“That said, there are many classes separated by gender. Plus, Marina locks herself in the laboratory after school. If she’s gone for a few days, no one but me notices. Above all, Marina is beautiful.”

“Eh?!”

Marina’s face rapidly turns red.

“If you take off the glasses, I think you’ll see a cute face. That might be what targeted her.”

Ignoring the steaming Marina, Thor continues to speak.

Please Thor, look at Marina. Not me! Yes, that way!

“Me, beautiful? That’s impossible. . .”

“You resemble the face of the young lady who is rumored to be cute. You know the young lady who is taller and has longer hair than Nee-sama, right? Marina also resembles Nee-sama a bit.”

“There are many such young ladies, Thor. . .”

The hint of a romantic comedy fades, leaving disappointment.

I thought my brother might be the clueless main character of a rom-com who effortlessly wins over cute girls, but he’s just a siscon.

“That Thor would compare me to his sister. . . Thank you so much!”

Marina, cupping her cheeks with both hands, seemed oddly touched.

Was there something in Thor’s words to be happy about? Did I just not understand?

“Marina, you know. . . Thor isn’t a bad boy. He’s just in a siscon rampage right now, he doesn’t always go on about Nee-sama.”

“It’s okay! Half of what Thor talks about is about his sister and Tianne-sama! I’m used to it!”

How could Thor make such a face in such a situation?!

“I also like Tianne-sama!”

Ugh, it’s blinding. . .!

“Talking with Thor about cooking and cosmetics, developing them together, it’s fun every day!”

“I also enjoy being with Marina.”

. . .Am I the cupid of love. . .?

“Maybe. . . next time. . . the two of you could go out together. . .?”

That was all I could say.

“Let’s get back to the topic.”

With Roa-sama’s words, the atmosphere becomes tense. Roa-sama, who was a bit playful before, is now serious.

Just by raising his eyebrows, his already dignified face appears even more manly.

“We will now discuss the matter concerning that merchant.”

Roa-sama looks around at everyone, confirming there are no objections.

“From now on, I will call you Thor. Thor, do you know if the merchant has targeted any other young lady besides Marina-sama?”

“No, unfortunately. . . I only noticed because I was with Marina.”

“Hmm. . . Is the merchant new to this school?”

 ㅤ

Chris nodded.

“As I heard earlier, it has only been about a week since he started coming and going.”

Oh, that’s typical of Chris.

“That helps, Chris. Then, it seems unlikely that he’s approached any other young ladies.”

“He said that since the person who used to come and go there is retiring, he will take over as the school’s contact. However, he wasn’t introduced by his predecessor. When asked about it, he said it wasn’t confirmed yet; he plans to get a feel of the school atmosphere, and if he thinks it’s not good, he’ll decline the position. So, he asked for his predecessor not to be informed.”

“That’s suspicious.”

“Yes. That merchant is a smooth talker, speaks pitifully as if telling the truth, which makes one sympathize. I heard he claimed to have become a merchant to honor his parents, but he’s not suited for it as he’s uncomfortable in crowded places. He mentioned they just made small talk, but he must have been gathering information then.”

“He seems to be quite articulate. Gives off an impression of being experienced.”

“He was spotted in a place where he shouldn’t have been and was warned. He was very thankful, saying it helped him as he was lost, but. . .”

“Ah, so he has excuses like that ready. That’s how he set his sights on Marina-sama.”

“He must be planning to expand from there.”

Roa-sama, occasionally showing a determined look, turned it towards Marina. It was unusual to see Roa-sama talking with a female student, and it caused a stir in my heart.

“I’m asking Marina-sama to take on something dangerous.”

“It doesn’t matter. I can’t forgive someone who does wrong!”

Marina, unusually raising her voice, clenched her fists tightly.

“If being silent makes us a target, then we’ll take the offensive! My sisters might come to school. It would be dangerous if such a person were around then!”

“I understand your concern for your sisters, but please, take care of yourself first. The most dangerous person is after Marina-sama.”

“Yes!”

“Then, I want everyone to share their opinions. Personally, I think the first step should be to give Marina-sama some kind of magic tool. Something for protection and something to record with. The opponent isn’t using a magic tool to disguise themselves, so we should be able to record them well.”

I was relieved to hear so many opinions coming from everyone.

Marina won’t have to face the dangers like I did. That’s what matters most.
