‘This voice must be…….’
It was a familiar voice that I heard so much that I couldn’t forget.
“Ye, Yerine, this voice… they’re talking about you, right?”
Erica gulped and asked. Her expression was more firm.
It must have been because of the foggy scenery, the voices ringing in the mountains were so grotesque. It was natural to feel anxious when someone you don’t know heard of talking about you.
“Yes, I think that’s right……and I also think I know who it is.”
“Huh? You know who is that person?”
Looking toward the main gate, someone was holding the door with both hands, beyond the iron gate. It’s obvious that the person asking the gatekeeper to open the door, but it couldn’t have been easy in a secure academy.
“Sorry, Erica. Can I go for a while?”
“Huh? Wait, Yerine!”
“I’ll be right back! Erica just can wait here.”
I could hear Erica talking behind my back, but my body was already heading to the main gate.
‘He won’t be able to get inside the Academy, but I’d better take care of it quickly before the word comes out.’
To come up with a solution to the situation, I called in Professor Frain, who was staring at someone outside the door, with her head rolled and her arms crossed.
She had a terrifying look on her face that I had never seen before.
“Miss Spade? Why are you here……….”
But the moment she looked back at me, she returned to her usual gentle face.
“You’d better not come to the main gate now. I’ve called security, so go somewhere else for a moment…..”
She lightly grabbed me by the shoulder and pushed me back in the opposite direction of the main gate.
Then a clear voice came from the front door.
That voice made me feel irritated, but I held it in because it was outside.
At the voice, Prof. Frain sighed and looked back.
“I’ll take care of it, so don’t worry about it, Miss Spade.”
She spoke in a calm but powerful voice.
‘Really, he really has something to make people tired.’
Thinking so, I said to Prof. Frain.
“Professor, I think he’s been looking for me. I think I’d better persuade him and send him back before he harms other people.”
“That’s why we can’t do that, Spade.”
Professor Frain stretched out her waist and told me eye-to-eye.
“If he can harm other students, he can harm Miss Spade, too.”
Then she glanced toward the door and continued her words in a dry voice.
“It is a professor’s duty to protect students in the Academy. I would abandon my duty if I let you meet someone who is likely to harm students.”
Prof. Frain’s idea was convincing enough. Moreover, as I was the victim of the monster break-in incident, so the professors must have been more cautious.
“Professor, I understand and appreciate that. But I’m fine.”
“If we let him that way, he’ll be doing that in front of the Academy all day long. And….”
I looked down on the ground, wiggled with my fingers and said,
“It’s embarrassing, but it’s a personal matter, so I think I’ll have to deal with it. Would you please let me talk to him?”
Then again a cracked voice came from beyond the iron gate.
“Ye, Yerine! Yerine Spade!”
Even after hearing the voice, I smiled and talked.
“I’d like to meet him in person and listen to his story.”
In the meantime, the iron door kept shaking, making a sound of iron.
Professor Frain, who listened to it and agonized over her head with her hands on her forehead, finally gave me the answer I wanted.
“Okay. Do you want me to stay away from you?”
“No, you don’t have to.”
Eventually, I walked toward the main gate with Prof. Frain.
Then I looked down with cold eyes at the ugly man, who was glued like a cicada as if to cram his face into the iron door.
Leon, who I had not seen for months, had changed noticeably. Stubborn only in dazzling jewellery, he was wearing a ragged, dusty coat. The glossy blonde was fluffy, and the face was thinner than before.
“Yerine! You came!”
When Leon saw me, he smiled visibly gladly and extended his hand through the iron bars as if to hold his hand. I frowned at the sight and backed away.
“I don’t know anyone like you.”
“I’m sad, Yerine, what do you mean by that?”
“When the Postade family was disqualified and separated from the Spade family, I have nothing to do with you now.”
I said word by word with force.
“So get out. There’s absolutely nothing to get you into here.”
“Come on, hold on, Yerine, please.”
“It’s no use holding out. You don’t even have the strength to break the shield, do you?”
In the end, he showed his true colours.
As his voice turned into an angry beastly sound, everyone around me looked at Leon with a surprised look and was on alert.
“You’ve totally ruined my family! Because of a bitch like you!”
Then Prof. Frain frowned.
“Be careful of what you say. Don’t you have any awareness of where you are now?”
But Leon was already out of his mind.
“Shut up! What do you know? Because of your bitch accusation, my mother went to prison and all her property was taken. Plus, my damn father chased me and wanted to kill me.”
Leon shouted, waving the iron door with blood in his eyes.
“If you had not taken the position as the heir, I would have made to the 7 Imperial Family–”
But Leon couldn’t finish his words.
Spitting, opening his mouth wide, and making all sorts of bizarre noises, he grabbed his neck and puffed along the way.
‘You’re really, really no help in my life.’
I sighed and said, lowering my right hand, which had been lifted into the air.
Then Leon looked at me with an angry look, as if he were making a loud noise at the sight.
At least I wouldn’t have heard his voice. I couldn’t stand it and cast a silent spell.
I turned my back against the iron gate, bowed my head to the professors, and talked.
“Sorry for the disturbance, professor.”
“No, it’s not your fault, Miss Spade.”
Professor Frain shook her head and spoke.
“Yes, Miss Spade, now turn to the main building–”
It was just that moment.
‘Now is the time.’
I extended my right hand behind me, invoking the flame magic without hesitation.
I heard a clink of metallic objects falling on the floor.
Looking back, Leon was rolling on the floor holding his burned right hand, and a sharp silver knife fell through the bars of the iron door.
“It’s so obvious that you can’t even touch me.”
With air magic, I said, moving the knife that Leon dropped over my hand.
“Don’t be so unfair because it’s just self-defence.”
Saying so, I calmly turned to the main building.
“I’m gonna kill you! I’m going to kill you!
Leon, who was unable to use one hand, struck his head against the iron door and bleed out of his nose, then Professor Frain raised her right hand to see if he was unconscious.
But even before she could use magic, a red light came from somewhere.
Reon, who was hit with a stun spell, stopped moving with his head lodged in the door. And Erica stood in the direction of the light coming.
At the call of Professor Frain, Erika lowered her right hand and answered with a cold look.
“I’m sorry, professor, he’s so noisy.”
In my voice, Erica immediately changed her expression and approached with a worried look.
“Yerine, are you all right? Because of that son of a bi……no, because of him, you–”
I was amazed and said, taking a step back.
“I’m fine. Erica, you can’t come close now. There might be some magic on this knife.”
The knife that Leon dropped was floating on my hand.
The knife was sharp but not very big. Even if I get stabbed with this knife, it won’t get hurt enough to take my life.
‘That means there’s a high possibility that there’s something unusual about this knife.’
That’s why I didn’t touch the knife.
Then came two men in uniform running.
“I’ve been contacted. Is this the person?”
“Yes. Please contact the Capital Guard and bind him.”
The guard began to tie Leon under Prof. Frain’s instructions, and she spoke to me and Erica.
“Miss Blothea, and Miss Spade. Let’s go back to the main building now. Miss Spade, hand the knife over to me and make sure you go to the infirmary to check if you’re hurt anywhere.”
Professor Frain made a glass box out of magic on the spot and told me to use air magic to put the knife through the box.
“Wait a minute, professor.”
Although it was only a short time after learning the simultaneous operation, I could do it for a while.
Focus my mind and use my left hand to cast the flame magic while trying to keep the knife in a notary state.
Erica, glancing at the scene, tilted her head.
“Yerine, what are you doing?”
At that very moment, the flame on the blade turned green.
The emerald green flame rolled about in the wind, so it looked like a goblin in a fairy tale.
“As expected, my prediction was not wrong.”
Now I was making a red flame instead of a green one in my hand. There was only one reason for the green flame to appear.
“There’s poison in the knife.”
With a firm expression, I said, looking back at Professor Fline holding a glass box.
