“So, how’s your practice going?”
When asked by Cassius, I had no choice but to smile.
Actually, the performance practice wasn’t as successful as I thought.
Naturally, Eugene was training as a marine instructor, but no noticeable improvement was made.
“I guess it’s hard to answer because you’re laughing without saying anything.”
Cassius said, hitting the bulls-eye.
Strangely, he has a good wit for this kind of thing.
“Phew, that’s right. There’s nothing to hide.”
I said, stretching out my arms and.
“In fact, I’m not doing as well as I thought. I should just work hard, I guess.”
“Well, what does Eugene say?”
“Well, as usual. He’s rolling me like crazy. Although hee practices a lot.”
Then I spoke with a sigh.
“It hasn’t been long since I started practising, but I was worried that my skills wouldn’t improve until the performance, so….”
Cassius stared at me with his golden eyes still shining.
“You don’t have to be too hasty. You already have a huge pile of skills, and it’s obvious that it takes you a step further in that situation.”
“Is that so… ?”
“Yes. As if it’s harder for an A-class student to climb to an S-class than for an F-class student to climb to a D-class.”
It sounded right.
‘I knew that there weren’t that many of the families that I knew would run magic simultaneously.….’
“I hope you don’t feel too pressured or in a hurry.”
Cassius said with a smile around his mouth.
“Because it’s best to see you enjoying the magic.”
“Huh? Does it look like I’m enjoying magic?”
To be honest, I do like it.
Of course, from the perspective of me, who has lived the life of a modern person like that there is nothing going according to their will, wouldn’t the magic that does what you think comes too attractive?
“Yes. Especially during the battle. There’s a look on your face that seems to expect a lot of fighting.”
“Isn’t that a little scary?”
I didn’t know. I must have looked crazy to other people.
“Uh, well, it looks a little like that when you take out the flame magic……”
“Oh, is that true?”
“Oh, no, so anyway… ….”
Cassius tried to change his words and talked.
“You, whether you’re smiling with a very confident expression when using magic, I would wish you wouldn’t lose your appearance. I wonder if this performance is also a show that shows you enjoying yourself in front of people.”
The face of Cassius delivering the word was quite serious.
However, the words contained a sense of kindness, which somehow warmed my heart.
“…… I see. It would be nice if I seemed to enjoy myself from the perspective of people.”
Yes, Cassius is not wrong. I should enjoy it. It’s only been five days since we started practising.
‘Let’s move on step by step.’
I stood upon the bench thinking so.
“I think Cassius is right. Thank you for saying such a nice thing.”
I said with a light smile at him.
“I’m glad it helped.”
“I’ll be going now, then. I’m sure Eugene will go crazy again if I don’t go.”
Cassius’s expression seemed subtly firm at my words. It felt like the laughter that had remained around his mouth until a while ago was slightly fading.
In the midst of confusion, Cassius urgently called me up.
“Hold, hold on, Yerine.”
“I, I still need to talk to you……can you just listen to this and go?”
The moment I saw his golden eyes glancing at me, I could see right away. The fact that Cassius is about to bring up something very important.
“…yes, I will.”
Saying so, I sat back on the bench and took a seat.
‘What the hell is he going to talk about…?’
No matter how I look at it, I can’t guess it. His look must be similar to that of the day he came to my room disguised as Astra.
“What are you going to talk about.…?”
Despite my question, Cassius couldn’t open his mouth easily for a while with his eyes closed. He wiggled his hands with his fingers crossed and gently bit his lower lip.
“Well, do you happen to know?”
It was not long after that that his voice finally came in.
“At the end of the school anniversary banquet, the ball will be held.”
Ah, is there really a ball after the banquet? Perhaps because it’s a magic school at the noble school, the event that I used to watch only in movies is really going to be held.
Then Cassius grinned at me.
“Students dance at the ball, too.”
“So, speaking of which….”
Cassius came a little closer, and said to me, making eye contact with me.
“Wouldn’t you be my partner at the ball?”
At first, it took me a considerable amount of time to understand the word. And as soon as I understood it, I could feel the heat on my face right away. Furthermore, Cassius’s face looking at me at that time, looking unusually good and handsome, suddenly my heart thumped.
“Oh, ‘yes’ and ‘yeah’ are expressions of agreement, right? So you’re gonna be my partner?”
Cassius made fun of me with a playful smile. Why even that smile looks so handsome today. I wonder why his shining golden eyes, chubby nose, and sculpted lips are so eye-catching.
“No, wait a minute! No, it’s not.”
I jumped up from the bench with my face open and waved my hands.
“How can I, uh, how can I, uh….”
“Yerine, calm down. Take a deep breath and…….”
“I, dan, don’t even know how to dance!”
It was true. Where could I have learned to dance before?
Even after being possessed, no one had taught nobility manners and dances to me. However, the words seemed to have become a gap.
“Then I’ll teach you. Just the two of us rented a practice room.….”
It is not an illusion that Cassius emphasized the word “two of us”.
Moreover, his mouth was smiling sweetly at the time, but his eyes were flashing like a beast of prey.
‘No, no, no, no, no……!’
Dancing with the 2nd Prince in a place with outsiders, it is obvious that the eyes will be focused on me at once. Plus, I wasn’t really, really confident in dancing.
“And, and, because I’m in charge of the performance……… I don’t know if I have time to dance practice right now.”
“Hey, it’s okay if you can’t dance. It’s more important for me to want to be a partner with you and….”
If I stay like this, I will definitely fall for the flow of conversation, so I left my seat.
“I really have to go to practice now! That, and, the banquet is still a month away! So, give me some time to think!”
I shouted with a rapid voice and a red-hot face.
“Well, I’ll leave then!”
“Oh, now, wait, Yerine…….”
The words were to say good-bye, but in fact, I escaped the spot. I wonder if I’ve ever run this fast. As I ran to the sparrow-like that, I stopped running and breathed hard.
‘Will you be my partner at the ball?’
“I must be crazy, really……!”
The voice and the expression when he said it, did not disappear from my head. And when I thought of it, my face heated up again.
‘Asking for a ball partner in a romance novel is almost like a date!’
Thinking so, a corner of my mind began to tremble.
I already knew Cassius liked me, but why am I so nervous today?
‘And why does he look so handsome today?’
To be honest, the eye smile that he made when he was teasing was no joke. Now, Cassius knows how to take advantage of his blessed beauty as a man in romance fantasy novels.
“Oh, my God. I…….”
With a sigh, I trudged toward the sparrow. Today, it was obvious that this problem would keep me awake all night. The thought of it is already draining my strength.
Pushing the sparrow door so weakly, Eugene with his arms folded was standing in front of and staring at me.
Walking into the gutter like a powerless squid, Eugene glanced at me.
“You’re four minutes late. Be on time from now on.”
“What’s wrong with your face? It’s very red.”
“Yes, I won’t let you know.”
As I said so, I went to my usual practice position and stood there, and Eugene snorted and turned his head away.
“Yes, do as you please.”
Then we practised for about half an hour. Until I happen to see Eugene’s flashes scattered in the middle of the sparrow.
“Eugene! It exploded too early!”
Turning my head, I cried out to Eugene, who was posing.
“I said….. I know!”
After hearing me, Eugene took the offensive position again and shot the magic straight ahead.
The violet flash, which disappeared while splashing like a spark, set off like a flame just before it hit the wall almost opposite the sparrow.
When I saw Eugene wiping the sweat after shooting magic, I said in a low voice.
‘I wish I could do something like that, too.’
Thinking so, I invoked the flame magic on my palm. But no matter how much I concentrated, there was no sign of water droplets on the other hand.
In the end, the flame in the right hand went out powerlessly.
Then, suddenly a shadow fell over me, and the smell of mint-like coolness came through.
Looking up, Eugene looked down at me with blue eyes. Then he bent over and came close to me.
“Give it to me.”
With a softer, more gentle voice than usual.
