“Hello, my name is Suzan Kurtz. For the next three years, I will be your homeroom teacher. I look forward to working with you.”
Ms. Kurtz, the smart and bespectacled classroom teacher, greets the students.
However, it was immediately following the entrance ceremony, so the classroom was quite tense.
“… The students who had been staring at His Highness from the carriage must have realized at this point.”
“It’s just that.”
Hanna murmured from the back seat. I nodded, and Liz smiled and giggled.
This second life… or rather, in the time since our engagement, I have learned that Liz has no mercy for my enemies.
In my last life, she was holding herself back and only supported me clumsily.
Truly, she has a deep affection for the person she loves.
… No, I’m the same way.
” Now I’d like you to introduce yourself. Please keep this in mind as we need to know each other’s houses as nobles.”
Nobles don’t need to know each other’s names if they don’t say them, but they can’t be ignored once they greet each other.
By having students introduce themselves in class, they are made to feel like they are a part of something bigger than themselves.
The Royal Academy is not to be taken lightly.
“M-My name is Viscount Muller…”
The students then introduced themselves in turn.
Fumu… The faces are exactly the same as they were in my previous life.
except for Bruno, who had to leave early.
“I believe everyone knows who I am, but I’m Oscar Tu Estline, the second prince. Equality is emphasized at the academy, regardless of status. So for the next three years, you can call me Oscar. Of course, the title “Your Highness” is optional.”
Oscar says this with a friendly smile on his face.
He’s always good at pretending to be someone he’s not.
It’s now my turn.
“My name is Dietrich Tu Estline, and I am the first prince of the Kingdom of Estonia. There is no need to be reserved in this school, as Oscar stated. But, yes, males, I’d appreciate it if you could take your gaze away from my fiancée, Marguerite. Otherwise, I’ll be envious.”
Approximately half of the people who look at me as if to say, “Who do you think you’re talking about?” One-third of those who almost burst out laughing, and a few others who were unconcerned
Haha… It appeals to me because it is simple to grasp.
“I look forward to working with you for the next three years.”
I bowed deeply to the students, who must have been taken aback by my actions.
The sons and daughters all gasped at the same time, regardless of faction.
Oscar and Otto are looking at me as if they’re about to shoot me.
“Fufu… My name is Marguerite Friedenreich, and I am Marquise Friedenreich’s eldest daughter. As you are aware, I am Dee-sama’s fiancée, but I would appreciate it if you ladies did not look at Dee-sama. Despite my appearance, I’m a jealous woman.”
Liz introduces herself with an elegant smile…
Didn’t you say the same thing I did?
“I look forward to working with you.”
Liz bowed deeply, and the noble children, especially the men, all fell silent.
I understand how you feel, but you guys should never look at Liz like that. Never.
You, too, Oscar and Otto.
Especially you, Oscar. Your stare at Liz is getting worse by the day, and I want to pluck out your eyes right now.
“My name is Hanna Schacht.”
Hanna stood up, said nothing but her name, and sat down right away.
Hannah obviously does not want to be near anyone.
But the guys are giving her the same look Liz did.
Otto in particular…
So, I guess you have a thing for Hanna…
That concludes the first day of classes at the Royal Academy.
“Fufu… I was nervous on the first day…”
Liz and I were sitting side by side on a bench in the school courtyard as night fell.
“Right. However, I am looking forward to spending time with you at school.
“Me as well…”
Liz nodded and rested her cheek gently against my shoulder.
I had never been able to enjoy any aspect of school life in my previous life. This time I want to enjoy everything with Liz.
“…Still, I’ll be happy if I can stay for half the year.
I won’t be able to attend academy classes as long as I’m involved in national politics.
I must complete a variety of tasks while earning everyone’s trust.
“Fufu… But Dee-sama and I are always together, even when we are not in the academy.”
“Of course. I swore that I would stay by your side. No, because I want to be by your side.”
“Yes… me too…”
As we gazed at the moon in the night sky, I held Liz’s thin, white hand, feeling the warmth of the woman I loved.
