I trashed the kiss quest— and kinda regretted it. There were no longer any quests that would pay out a large sum of points anymore. I feel like those first few quests were a bonus. The rest will come at a hard grind.
Down the neighborhood streets, I walked with Liliath, side-by-side. No.. I’m not holding her hands or anything, just walking normally.
I offered to carry her bag together with mine so I had two bags on my shoulders. I wonder what she brought— it looked like she planned to do quite a lot. I’ve given her a brief rundown on what could happen in school, which is basically the fact that it’s plain boring after the novelty wears out so bring stuff to do—
Liliath herself carried a small bottle of water— it was one my sister used in the past.
She sent curious glances at absolutely everything. Yeah, I’m sure she has absolutely no idea half of what she’s actually seeing. Though now I can confirm that she’s the quiet kind of person. And because of this, her resolve to wear the black-laced dress to school took me by surprise.
Her gait combined with the dress— her perfect jade-like skin now devoid of any scars and exposed back and a portion of her cleavage. She’s like every man’s dream— do all girls from the fantasy world look this alluring?
“Yea? What is it?”
She should stop with the -sama. I wonder why she had to add that this time?
“Where is scool?” She faced me, a little puzzle.
“Uh, sorry. Just a little more.” We’ve been walking for about 20 minutes after all. Another 10 minutes to arrive.
Soon, the apex of the school came into view.
“There, that building. That’s the school.”
“It’s almost as tall as the chapel. Everything is surprisingly big in this world.”
“Is it now?”
Wow, she spoke. Eh, wait. I think I’m overreacting. Of course she spoke.. she’s human after all.
Now the moment everyone was waiting for— the moment of dread.. oh shit. Is that really what i’m seeing?!
I rubbed my eyes and looked at the school gate from a distance.
Holy cow. It is him— that dickhead Gruan is waiting at the gate.
Crap. I know of another entrance on the other side of the school.
“Liliath, let’s take a different entrance,” I halted.
She paused, a puzzled look on her face.
Honestly, my mind was so occupied with how to get Liliath into school safely that I couldn’t pay mine to that reaction of hers.
Wheeh. Alright, let’s take a detour.
I took a turn into the garden. Liliath continued to observe her surroundings, tilting her head every now and then. Her reaction was cute.. hopefully she gets used to seeing it all soon. I could imagine reacting the same as her if I was suddenly transferred to a fantasy world.
The detour wasn’t all that pleasant of a journey either. Since the garden park was in close proximity to the school, there were students using the path too. And they gave me silent stares.. awkward.
Liliath didn’t seem to mind though. She even bowed gracefully and nodded with a smile when we passed by the students— just like how a Princess would do.
I secretly grimaced.
I could tell some were instant love-struck —Fuck off.
UGH.. can’t the principal just come visit Liliath at home or something? Bringing her to school like this would only cause a commotion.
If anything, I would have to face this sort of predicament in the future. Liliath will continue to live in this world— it is inevitable.
The issue isn’t that. I believed this could’ve been avoided or at least suppressed if she wore casual clothing— it’s her dress and the alluring aura she’s emanating that’s the current issue.
Don’t tell me Liliath secretly likes being looked up to..
We entered the school compound using the side entrance. The number of stares only increased.
“Come on Liliath,” I increased my pace.
She kept up with me.
I would occasionally glance at her behind me, and she would flash a troubled smile tingled with regret.
Yeah.. so much for all the attention we’re getting— rather, it’s my fault for not explaining to her the situation of the school in more detail huh? Ah— can’t cry over spilt milk can’t I?
The issue with the gazes were more serious than I thought. Liliath came up to me and stuck close— she was clearly uncomfortable. But she kept her smile.
Just as we were walking up the stairs to the second floor— he called.
“Oh My God who are you dating!?”
Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Go to hell Gruan!
She nodded, and we both ran up the stairs.
“Hey wait up! I’m just curious and all!”
Oh crap. Everyone’s attention is directed at us now. Great~
I noticed that Liliath couldn’t catch up with my speed so I had to slow down to a jog— and that gave Graun the opportunity to catch up. Crap.
“Sorry,” I stopped my advance and turned around. “Gruan. this is none of your business.”
“Oh really? So who’s that girl over there.”
“Uh. Noel, so this is Graun?” Liliath whispered into my ear, it was pleasantly ticklish.
I nodded. And I could see Graun’s eyes open wide. To witness such a sight.. we’re like a couple aren’t we? Yeah, sorry to break it to you but.. that’s unfortunately not the case.
A mini theater soon formed with us in the limelight. Gossips mixed in between the crowd.
Liliath tugged at my clothes, “Let’s just proceed, I’ve already dealt with him.”
I looked at Liliath a little confused but she didn’t explain any further and pulled at my hand. Whatever she meant— I turned my back against Gruan, in the direction she was headed to and just followed?
“Hey, what are your tw—UWARGH?!”
I heard thud behind and followed up by an applause from the crowd. I wanted to turn around but Liliath’s fixed gaze on me told me not to do so.
I had no idea what happened, all I knew was that she did something to make him trip.
We proceeded forward with Liliath still holding onto my arm— I have no idea where she’s dragging me..
“Liliath, a right turn here.”
“This room here,” I gestured with my other hand.
When we came up to the Principal office’s door, Liliath released my hands and a sigh leaked from her lips.
“What did you do?” I genuinely wanted to know what the hell happened. Like damn— it had to be a good show right? Else why would the crowd go nuts with applause.
“I merely brushed him off our tail. Nothing more nothing less,” she smiled. Scary.
Ok. Better not ask into specifics.
Cold sweat ran down my forehead.
Anyways. I knocked on the door.
After a while I heard, “Come in,”
I opened the door. A chilly gust of wind brushed my face. Seeing Liliath blink in surprise was a bonus.
And in the middle of the room where the council and coffee table were arranged was Principal Rachel, that uncle I always saw in a restaurant my family frequently visits and— Prune?
Yeah. Prune’s family owns a diner that I tend to visit. Though it had been almost a week since my family and I last went.
“Prune? Um. Morning.”
“Morning— morning,” She responded by repeating her words.
“I’m sorry, could you give us a moment. Please take a seat,” The principal beckoned, an astonished look on her face directed at Liliath.
“It’s a pleasure to meet you Principal Rachel.”
My body turned stiff, while everyone else froze— Liliath curtsied.
Yo. What?? Did I tell a Liliath something wrong? All I did was say Principal Rachel holds an important position in school right? RIGHT?! How could I have forgotten to tell her etiquette doesn’t matter in this world!!!
