The Rune Magician Who Lost Everything to Her Older Sister, Becomes Doted On by the Genius Prince – Chapter 5


Chapter 5: Begin to change

“Well, we have to go through the formalities. I’m sorry, will you come with me?”

“Yes!”

I leave the laboratory with His Highness.

There is a mountain of work left on the table.

Leticia is not complaining because His Highness is here.

I am honestly afraid of what she will say later.

When we reach the hallway, I ask His Highness.

“Um, Your Highness…”

“What is it?”

“Is it really because of me…? My sister can’t use Rune Magic, but she is perfect in everything else.”

“…You’re amazing. You’re willing to defend your sister even though you are treated unfairly.”

“Huh…?”

The way he said it just now sounded like he knows about the relationship between me and my sister…

“I know you have an inferiority complex towards your sister. She is undoubtedly excellent. But just because you think you are more excellent doesn’t mean you can skip work and play, right?”

“――! So, Your Highness…”

Do you know?

Really?

My body trembles with surprise.

“Haha, I did some research before scouting you. I heard that there was a talented magician in the Pheles family, but to be honest, I was disappointed. Make her work hard for her past laziness. It will make you feel refreshed, won’t it?”

The prince shows a mischievous smile.

My heart is shaken by his childish smile.

Refreshed…I wonder.

“Yeah, you’re right.”

Honestly, I think it’s true.

I was inferior to my sister.

But I don’t think what he did to me was right in the slightest.

I think Leticia should experience the struggles of being unable to return home at night at least once.

“Did you teach yourself Rune Magic?”

“Uh, yes. I studied on my own.”

“It must have been difficult. There are not many materials available, and no one will teach you.”

“Yes. But it was interesting, and it was the only option for me.”

I studied with enthusiasm.

And if the result is being found by the prince like this, then that time wasn’t wasted.

“Even then, you don’t have to practice until late at night on your way back from work, do you?”

“W-Were you watching me?”

“It was a coincidence. I saw you playing with water while taking a walk at night.”

“I-I’m sorry!”

I thought nobody was watching, but I can’t believe I was seen by His Highness.

I must be the most embarrassing one to be seen by.

“Hahaha, there’s no need to apologize. I saw it and was convinced. You’re the right person for the job.”

“I-Is that so?”

“Yeah, I looked around everywhere but it was only you. You’re a unique existence that truly wears Rune Magic. Be more confident!”

“Y-Yes!”

His Highness’ words are strong yet warm.

They push my weak back forward and make my steps feel a little lighter.

“So, what should I do now…”

“Oh, I’ll explain it in detail later. There’s a super confidential mission.”

“Confidential…”

“Yes, to investigate the Ancient Artifact. That’s why Rune Magic was essential.”

“Ancient…”

Is it something like an ancient ruin that was discovered?

I still don’t really understand, but if my magic can be of use, then…

“I’ll do my best!”

“Yeah, I’m counting on it.”

I want to live up to his expectations for the first time.

Maybe this is the first time I’ve talked to someone with such a positive feeling.

◇◇◇

“What the hell!”

She bangs on the table.

The documents flutter and fall.

In the research room where Meiana and His Highness Alectos are gone, Leticia shows her frustration.

“Meiana is a genius? That’s ridiculous.”

She’s always the one chosen.

She’s superior in every field.

Even her fiancé chose her, breaking off the engagement just to be with her.

There is no area where she is inferior.

She is far superior to Meiana.

That’s what she thinks of herself.

But…

This time, Meiana was the one chosen.

Her incompetent little sister was recognized by the genius prince.

Feeling defeat for the first time, Leticia trembles in body and soul.

“Haah…”

She can’t keep being angry forever.

Now that Meiana is absent, she has to do the work piled up on the table by herself.

No, now that she has gone to the second prince, she will never go back…

“W-What is this amount of work!”

Leticia didn’t know.

That the amount of work kept increasing.

Since she left everything to Meiana, there was no room for her to notice.

It’s about twice the amount of work from before she became Meiana’s assistant.

What was barely manageable two years ago is now double the workload, weighing down on her.

“With this amount…there’s no way I can finish it in one day…”

Yes, normally it’s impossible.

It’s much more than the other magicians working in the court.

That’s because Leticia is thought to be talented.

And because Meiana always continues to finish the increasing workload.

Leticia is a genius.

On a modern scale, she can be considered top class in terms of her talent as a magician.

However, she had become complacent.

She thought she didn’t need to work hard since Meiana did everything for her.

Therefore, she neglected to learn.

Among the stacked documents, there are some unfamiliar words that she doesn’t understand.

But, Meiana can comprehend them.

Her talent as a magician is prominent, and in terms of knowledge and experience, Meiana has already surpassed her.

She finally realizes this.

And then――

From this day on, their relationship will change dramatically.

The younger sister’s outgrowth, the incompetent older sister.

In the end, Meiana will…attain the highest honor in the kingdom.
