The Rune Magician Who Lost Everything to Her Older Sister, Becomes Doted On by the Genius Prince – Chapter 9

Chapter 9: Those who have lost their support

A court magician appointed to the Second Prince.

As of today, my position has been officially appointed by His Highness.

From today, I will be calling myself as such.

I became a court magician, not just my sister’s assistant.

I wear a special badge given only to those who work in the court.

I had always been envious of those who had them, as I couldn’t have one as I was just an apprentice.

Now I finally have one.

It was an unexpected shape, but it filled me with happiness.

Furthermore, there was one more thing.

A badge proving to be a direct subordinate of the Second Prince, which I wear beside my court badge.

I also feel a bit of superiority, something I have never felt before.

“Are you sure about this?”

While grinning and touching my badge, His Highness asked me.

I turn around to the direction of the voice.

There is a carriage parked behind with knights moving luggage.

“I was the one who made the request, but there’s no need to hurry that much, right?”

“No, I’ll be fine.”

“Well then, that’s good.”

His kind Highness asked worriedly.

As a subordinate of His Highness, I am headed towards the city where the tablet was found.

That site is located far from the capital and during the investigation, we will be staying there.

There happened to be a knight order delivering goods to that site, so I decided to accompany them as well.

Move on the day of appointment.

Perhaps it was because the development was too sudden, but His Highness seemed to be worried.

“You’re not pushing it, are you?”

“No, I’m fine.”

“Then I’ll report back to the Pheles family.”

“I would appreciate that.”

The mission site is far away, and it will be a long stay.

Upon hearing that, I thought to myself that I was lucky.

I have no place in the Pheles family.

My parents might be pleased about my promotion.

But if I go back, there’s also my older sister.

Although it’s my own home, I’ve never felt comfortable there.

It’s probably claustrophobic.

My sister will undoubtedly give me a hard time.

If that’s the case, it’s better not to meet her.

Fortunately, the packing didn’t take much time because there isn’t much luggage.

“Well, it’s not like you’re going to a place that’s completely far away. If necessary, you can come back.”

“Yes, that’s…”

There was something that had been bothering me since earlier.

It was His Highness’s attire.

He seemed to have changed into it after our talk in the royal castle.

He was dressed comfortably, and he had a sword at his waist.

“Is Your Highness accompanying us as well?”

“Hm? What’s up? You don’t want to be with me?”

“N-No! It’s not like that!”

“Haha, just kidding. You’re fun to tease.”

His Highness laughs happily.

That was a little mean, and I frown a bit knowing it was impolite.

“It’s not like I’m going with you because I’m bored. The site where the tablet was found, City of Laurier, is under my jurisdiction. It’s the prince’s duty to check the condition of the city. This time, the inspection is also part of the trip.”

“I see.”

I feel a little disappointed.

He is not coming with me because he is worried about me.

Confirming such an obvious fact makes me ashamed of myself.

“But, I’m still interested. I want to see how you work too.”

His Highness looks into my face.

I feel like he can see through my thoughts.

It’s embarrassing, but I’m glad.

“Yes! I’ll do my best.”

“Don’t stress yourself too much. Well then, let’s get on the carriage. It will take half a day to get to Laurier.”

It is now evening.

We will depart now and arrive tomorrow morning as planned.

I will spend the night in the same carriage as His Highness.

I’m getting nervous all of a sudden.

Preparations are complete and the carriage sets off.

The view of the royal capital from the carriage window is colored orange by the setting sun.

I’ve always watched the sunset from my laboratory because I couldn’t finish my work in time.

This view is fresh and deepens my emotions.

Suddenly, I see the palace buildings.

I wonder how she is doing now.

Has she finished the work that she, not I, left for me?

Knowing her abilities, is she easily finishing the work and leaving on time?

Or is she struggling like I always do, unable to finish and going through a tough time?


Around the time when Meiana departed from the royal capital.

Her older sister, who was excellent and a genius, was staring at documents in her lab.


She checks the stack of documents and flows right to left.

Simple clerical work.

As someone working in the court, not all of her work was as a magician.

Rather, paperwork was many times more, and it couldn’t be said that it was a fun job.

Especially for someone who pushed all their work onto their younger sister like her…

“What’s going on…It’s not ending at all.”

It was nothing but pain.

All the work she pushed onto Meiana was now returning to her.

It was her own fault, but she didn’t think so.

“Why am I doing this…”

It was natural for her to be a court magician.

The court was not a place to play, but a place to work.

The highest workplace in the country should not be easy, and the busyness is also top-class.

Work tends to accumulate for talented personnel, and it continues to increase day by day with trust.

Meiana had no talent as a modern magician, but she was excellent in paperwork and knowledge.

She works efficiently and finishes the given tasks faster than expected.

Therefore, the workload keeps increasing.

As “Leticia’s” evaluation rises, so does the amount of work.

However, it wasn’t until Meiana was gone that Leticia realized that.

“So much…”

Is it really that tough?

She realized again how important Meiana’s presence was.

However, her pride won’t let her admit it.

While complaining, she feels anxious deep down.

This job… Will it get done by the end of the day?
