tsuragi have with us?”
“Ah, that’s right.
Sorry for the delay, but I had your uniform sent to the school, Rei.
I’ll send the uniform you’re wearing now to our cleaners, so you can probably change in school.
I thought about sending it straight to your home, but that’s just double the work, right?”
That was right.
This uniform was one I had borrowed.
“I apologize for taking your time.
I gave it to Mr.
Akimi, so you can go change in the infirmary after school.
I got a message from Yuria.
Rei, you’re also a reincarnator?”
Lord Katsuragi laughed in a teasing tone.
He clearly didn’t believe it.
“Lord Katsuragi is a childhood friend of Lady Yuria Sakurada, correct? Then, I don’t think that you should speak in such a spiteful way.
I am merely accompanying her in her delusions.
If this will ease her mind, then it’s not a problem.”
“Rei, you would do it for Yuria, who tackled and injured you? You’re compassionate.
Ah, right, Hongou twins.
I’ll definitely have you join the student council in high school.”
Lord Katsuragi suddenly changed the conversation.
I don’t think he can settle down on one thing for reasons.
I couldn’t fathom how a handsome, pompous prince was so greatly idolized in the school.
“Ah, I also agree with that point.
Especially about you, Souju.
I have expectations for you.
You vehemently refused in middle school, but I absolutely want you to join this time.
And, I want you to become student council president in the future.
Traditionally, the student council president is a salon member.
Last year’s middle school student council president Takanashi was unfortunately not a salon member.
He was a new student.
I want to maintain the tradition for high school.”
Lord Madenokouji entered the conversation.
He wanted to invite Lady Sara and Lord Souju to the student council.
“I’ve told you so many times already, but I don’t have any time for that.”
Lord Souju was a super hacker, after all.
“It’s also impossible for me.”
The student council was most likely noisy with Lord Katsuragi present, so it would probably stress the delicate Lady Sara.
“Or rather, Ms.
Stop getting yourself involved with Rei.
You could have just sent anyone else to tell her about her uniform.
Didn’t you promise Rei that Yuria Sakurada would only have the bare minimum interaction with her? Yet, Rei was injured and ignored by the new students because of that girl’s strange rumors.”
Oh, Lord Souju was aware of my distant relationship with the new students.
“I don’t care.
I have no intention of going along with Yuria’s delusions.”
Our conversation was running parallel! This was exactly the same with Mr.
Yamamoto from Interpol.
But, Lord Katsuragi didn’t have poor hearing.
“Kaoru, I don’t know the situation here, but from what I can see, this girl is troubled.
Think a little of the other party.”
Lord Madenokouji said this to him directly, but Lord Katsuragi answered that it wasn’t related to him.
“I only believe what I believe and act based on that.”
Oh, I have to raise the white flag here.
I had no choice but to completely avoid Lord Katsuragi.
“Lord Katsuragi, I deeply apologize, but I ask for your cooperation for Lady Yuria Sakurada’s sake.
I’m very concerned about her.
Please do not speak to me until she settles down.
Please, I ask this of you.”
“I don’t want to.
Even though I’m finally friends with you, Rei, why do I have to do such a thing for Yuria?”
“Don’t call her Rei! Besides, you’re not a friend or anything to her, Mr.
“That’s right! Why are you acting so overly familiar? Can you please not talk to Rei anymore?!”
Lady Sara and Lord Souju exploded in anger.
Whoa, Lord Katsuragi’s pompousness was different from the pompousness in the novels! Absolutely no charm!
“Kaoru! Can you just stop?! Hongou twins, and Rei? Excuse me, I don’t know your name.
I’ll make sure to lecture Kaoru after this.”
Lord Madenokouji was a normal person.
A straightforward person.
I was relieved.
“Thank you very much for your concern.
I’m Reiko Kujouin.”
When I gave my name, Lord Madenokouji broke into a bright smile.
Kujouin?! I heard that you enrolled here, but to think that you were such a beautiful girl.
It’s an honor to meet you.
I want to properly introduce myself.
I’m Yuu Madenokouji.
Nice to meet you.”
Lord Madenokouji held out his hand to shake mine.
When he did, Lord Souju glared at Lord Madenokouji and pushed the hand away.
Madenokouji, even you can’t get close to Rei! Since it’ll really be a bother.”
“Rei, let’s return to the classroom.”
I hurriedly wrapped the multi-tiered bento box and got ready to leave the room.
To have Lord Katsuragi and Lord Madenokouji understand my position, I stood up from my seat and asked them.
I am a scholarship student on top of being poor, so there is no merit for you two to pay any attention to me.
Please, I ask for your understanding.”
I said, and the three of us left the café.
I ended up leaving a slice of my sandwich behind, so I truly, utterly, and extremely regretted it.
That sandwich, from its bread to its ingredients, was completely delicious! Because of Lord Katsuragi, I couldn’t finish the last slice.
He was a different kind of annoyance from Lady Yuria Sakurada.
He wasn’t a pompous prince.
He was an impatient child! A childish prince!
My bitterness because of my food ran deep.
Until now, I had only thought of Lord Katsuragi as a somewhat troublesome person, but because of the matter of the sandwich, my feelings towards Lord Katsuragi took a huge nosedive.
