Chapter 50: He has a shaggy head
“What’s wrong, Alise?”
When he tilted his head with such a refreshing expression, I couldn’t say anything more.
Julian-sama was getting too close to me, making it incredibly uncomfortable to walk. Actually, it was more than just uncomfortable.
It was because I said I was going to see Tanatora-san. Now that we were in school, I couldn’t easily prepare a bouquet of flowers.
I remembered how he once said he was favored by the biology teacher and decided to ask him about it.
I got his permission because I didn’t want Tanatora-san to be glared at by Julian-sama again because of me. And this is the result.
“I have to show clearly that you belong to me.”
“…Um, is that so?”
Since entering school, his attitude has only become stranger. I don’t understand why he keeps saying things like this, and as we are technically engaged, I can’t just tell him to stop.
Finally arrived at the classroom while feeling extremely uncomfortable walking. I knocked on the door twice, thinking that this was definitely the right place.
“Wolle Tanatora-san, are you in?”
Since there was no response after knocking, I called out to him. Then, I heard some loud noises from inside the room.
Immediately, the door opened with a creak.
“Lady Quatra! Long time no see!”
He seemed to be in a hurry, with his glasses half-sliding down from his face. With an airy expression, he opened his eyes wide and twinkled brightly.
“Good day, Tanatora-san.”
“I’m so glad to be asked by you! What a coincidence.”
With a fake cough, he finally seemed to notice something other than me. He should have noticed it immediately since he was sticking so close to me.
“T-This is His Highness Stratis! I’m terribly sorry!”
Tanatora-san panicked skillfully, and his glasses rattled to the floor with a clatter.
“Sorry for asking so abruptly. Do you have a moment now?”
“Who else could I be referring to?”
As always, he’s an oddball. I know he’s not a bad person, but the previous me would have never associated with him. I probably would have insulted him to his face.
“If it’s too difficult, we can reschedule.”
“N-No, it’s okay… but, um…”
Tanatora-san looks uneasy and his gaze flickers towards Julian-sama. I see, he must be scared of this expressionless face.
I pick up his fallen glasses and smile as I hand it back to Tanatora-san. Then, I glared at Julian-sama.
“If you’re going to make that kind of face, I’ll talk to him alone from here on out.”
“If you don’t like that, then please soften your expression a bit more.”
Julian-sama reluctantly averts his gaze from me. Then, he stares fixedly at the glasses in Tanatora-san’s hand.
