The Rune Magician Who Lost Everything to Her Older Sister, Becomes Doted On by the Genius Prince – Chapter 41


Chapter 41: Resting

“Come on, come at me already!”

“Eek! I-I told you I don’t want to!”

Zion-kun is being chased around by Kaijin in the Order’s training grounds.

Kaijin chases after Zion-kun, who is crying and running away, with a mixed expression of frustration and joy.

It definitely looks like bullying, but the knights around them were just exasperated.

“He’s doing it again.”

“Hang in there, Zion. Keep running.”

“Please help me, not cheer me up!”

His fellow knights return to their own training, not because they are heartless but because they know Zion will be fine.

“Too irresponsible!”

Well, it’s about time Kaijin catches up with Zion-kun.

He’s cornered against the wall and has nowhere to run.

“U…uhh…”

“I’ve finally got you cornered. Now, draw your sword!”

“Eek! I-I…”

The cornered Zion-kun draws his Holy Sword.

Kaijin also attacks with the understanding, and his attack is intercepted.

From the knights who were observing sideways, a voice of admiration rises.

Everyone was waiting for this development.

The cornered Zion-kun draws his Holy Sword, and the clash with Kaijin begins.

It’s always the same flow, so in a way, I was watching with relief.

“Please stop this already. Every time, someone gets hurt.”

“Hah! That’s fine with me, kiddo!”

The battle between Zion-kun and Kaijin was becoming a famous spectacle within the knight order.

They are strong.

They have an unparalleled strength.

Moreover, they fight in an exciting way that makes you want to watch.

That’s why many knights come to watch.

As for me, I am responsible for watching over them so that they don’t get too heated and get injured.

“Both of you, please be mindful of your surroundings.”

“I know.”

“That’s up to this guy!”

“Already.”

The two are still in good spirits today.

It has been a month since that power struggle.

Kaijin kills time by sparring with Zion-kun and seems to be enjoying himself every day.

For him, who had no opponents of equal strength, Zion-kun was one of the few who could make him stronger.

Zion-kun also seems to be reluctantly participating every time, but he looks a little more lively.

Maybe he was also looking for someone who could take him seriously.

Of course, their personalities and interests are polar opposites.

“Hey, hey, what’s wrong?”

“Huh, take this!”

Gradually, the expressions of the two become stern.

They forget that it’s just a training and get closer to a serious stare-down.

That’s when it’s my turn.

“Enough from both of you! If you don’t stop, I’ll pour water on you!”

“――!”

“Tsk, we were just getting started.”

The two heard my voice and stopped their fight.

That’s good.

If I get in there, they won’t even hear my voice.

Then, I have no choice but to pour water on them from above.

The two who stopped fighting walk towards me.

“Great work, both of you.”

“We’re not tired at all. We haven’t even moved enough yet. Hey kid, let’s get back to it.”

“I-I don’t want to.”

Zion-kun also puts away his Holy Sword in its sheath and returns to his usual easygoing atmosphere.

“Meiana-san! Please stop him earlier if you can.”

“Then it wouldn’t be a training, would it?”

“Eeeh~.”

“Gahaha! Looks like you don’t have any allies!”

Kaijin roughly pats Zion-kun’s shoulders as he slumps down.

He still has that unpleasant expression on his face.

But I wonder if Zion-kun himself realizes that he can complain and have a natural conversation with Kaijin?

“Well then.”

“Where are you going?”

“To meet His Highness.”

“Oh, so it’s time already. Tell him to get his ass back in gear.”

“You said that yesterday too, didn’t you?”

“I’ll say it every day. I’m tired of waiting.”

Kaijin shakes his head with a sigh.

Despite being someone who seems to dislike waiting due to his personality, he has been staying in the royal castle for the past month while complaining.

Thanks to Zion-kun being here, but he tends to try and enter the ruins or run away from the castle by himself.

He looks rough, but surprisingly he’s a thoughtful person.

“What do you need?”

“Well, I’ll tell him then. What about Zion-kun? Are you coming with me?”

“Oh, no, I’m tired, I’m taking a break.”

“Okay. Well then, we’ll be going.”

I bow lightly to the two of them and leave the training ground.

◇◇◇

Kaijin sits on the ground and murmurs as he watches Meiana’s back.

“She’s such a diligent person every day.”

“I think it’s just because she’s worried.”

“Well, his wounds are already healed, right?”

“That’s what the doctor said. However, I also heard that he still needs to rest.”

“Jeez, if the wounds are healed, it should be enough.”

Kaijin groans and lies flat on his back.

He looks up at the clouds in the sky and says to Zion, who is standing next to him.

“Hey, kid.”

“I-I’m not a kid, I’m Zion.”

“What a pain in the ass. Anyway, it’s about time.”

“About the ruins?”

“Hey, this is gonna be exciting. I’ll make sure to see just how strong this Demon God guy is.”

Kaijin stretched his arms out towards the sky and balled his fists.

With an expression filled with expectation.

Beside him, Zion was exasperated.

“W-We’re going to stop his resurrection, you know that, right?”

“Shut up, it doesn’t matter if he resurrects or not.”

“…You can’t just do whatever you want, you know? When the time comes… I’ll stop you.”

“You will?”

“…Someone will.”

“Why don’t you say you’ll do it yourself? You’re strong enough.”

Kaijin closed his eyes in a feeling of bliss and said so.

A pleasant breeze blew.

Zion smiled softly at being acknowledged by him.

“Alright, Zion! Let’s continue.”

“We’re still supposed to be taking a break, you know!”
