To the Academy
“Alice? What might this be~? Don’t I always tell you not to read my grimoires without permission? You need to get punished.”
When I tried to escape at high speed, Aletheia caught me. This traitor!
“I serve the country, so♪… Princess getting punished… haahaah.”
“You get 20 times today, let’s start. 1, 2, 3.”
What was the punishment? A spanking. Since we are royalty, how could a spanking be a thing, Mother? Aletheia was breathing roughly for some reason too… and my butt hurts…
“… I’m sorry, I won’t do it again.”
“What do you really mean?”
“I won’t get caught next time.”
“… Why don’t I give you 20 more?”
Crap! Guided interrogation is cowardly… there is no way for me to escape now that I lost the feeling around my waist… it’s over.
The first day of packing ended like that… all of the grimoires have been confiscated. I still have some hidden though.
Day 2 of packing.
Today we are going to continue packing from yesterday. I need dresses and other accessories with my belongings. There are parties at the academy, so I will be laughed at if I don’t have proper clothes as the child of nobility, and what would the people at home do to me if I don’t bring them… shiver.
“This… I don’t need it. I don’t need this either. This is heavy so I don’t need it even more.”
“You choose things based on ease of use rather than value, don’t you Princess? Moreover, all of it is so plain-looking, you should have at least this and this. Oh, you need this too, don’t throw it away like garbage, it was expensive.”
Aletheia picked up all the unnecessary things I threw out of my bag and put them back in her bag. We have been doing this for about an hour now.
“I won’t wear it even if I bring it with me, so it’s unnecessary.”
“If you keep saying that, you will have to replace these ero-looking black panties too, you know? You are royalty Princess, you won’t wear simple underwear too, would you?”
“I hate things that are over the top and the room at the dormitory is not that large to begin with, so I won’t bring anything that would simply be in the way.”
In fact, it’s about the size of my room, but since I will be living together with others, the less stuff I have, the better.
“Even if you say that, you will get a single room when you become a top-scorer, right? That should be easy-peasy for you. In the first place, what do you really need to learn? You already learned the knowledge and magic by yourself, and your stamina… there’s none at all. Please don’t tell me you want to become a macho like His Majesty because that would call into question the dignity of our country.”
“I don’t know if I can take the top-scorer seat and I won’t have a closet room as I do now, so I will have limited space.”
“Then let’s decrease the number of these distracting books by one-tenth so we can have more room for the closet.”
You don’t understand, Aletheia. Books are more important than clothes and accessories. It’s a great way to pass the time, and I generally stay away from people who aren’t from this country. What am I supposed to do with my time? Books and stuff are better than clothes, of course.
“Rejected. If you do that, I will erase everything with magic.”
“If you don’t like it, I can bring this with me. I will take care of it so it doesn’t get in the way.”
Aletheia will be accompanying me and she will apparently keep my belongings in her room. Well, I’m fine with that because I won’t be using it much, but it will reduce Aletheia’s living space, right?
Even though I had a lot of opinions, Aletheia packed some small things and accessories in her bag and put it on a shelf out of my reach. I could have used magic to remove them, but there was a chance that the contents would have a disastrous end, and Aletheia knew that, so she mixed in a few of my favorites. It was obviously heavy and I wouldn’t be able to reach it and take it down.
“Let’s call it a day here. You don’t really have to help Princess, you know? This is a maid’s work, after all.”
“I don’t know what you will put in if I leave it to you, so I will decide myself what to bring.”
There was a plush toy in my bag during the time of Stampede… we slept together, though.
“Why don’t you have any trust in me, Princess? Alas, there’s nothing I can do but throw myself out of this window. Princess, thank you for taking care of me up until now.”
Saying that, Aletheia approached the window.
“Stop!! I got it, I will leave it to you as long as you don’t put anything strange in it.”
“Yes, leave it to me.”
Her change in attitude is too fast… was I deceived… no, Aletheia wouldn’t do something like deceiving me, I’m sure she was just shocked like that. I will be more careful with my words in the future.
