Chapter 20 A Little Unusual
「 Everyone, this time we will be having an expedition training! We hope that you firmly prepare yourselves since we will be testing what you have learned about magic up until now.」
The students became noisy when Lotte-sensei gave announcement at morning homeroom.
「 Finally… the time has come.」 「 Kyaa~! What kind of clothes should I wear?」 「 Leave the total coordination to me.」 「 I, in this expedition, I will confess my love.」
Everyone was agitated.
「 Expedition…? What is that? Are we going to a war?」
Ferris who just transferred didn’t know about the situation, so she asked Alicia with a timid voice.
「 It’s not a war. We will bring some luggage to the forest and catch determined prey.」 Alicia answered with a smile.
「 Are you saying, it’s a picnic!?」
Ferris’ eyes widened in excitement.
「 Yeah, maybe something similar.」
「 Waai, I always wanted to go picnic since I read it on the books!」
So, the voice of Lotte-sensei could be heard from the podium.
「 Hey, there! Don’t say such irresponsible and carefree like that. You need to bring down monsters, and before you can actually do that you need to camping for several days.」
「 I’m good at sleeping outdoor desu!」
「 Ferris-chan…」 「 Ferris…」
To Ferris’ innocent words, everyone in class was shedding a tear. Only Lotte-sensei made a bitter smile.
「 At any rate, this expedition training have already held before, and it’s good for you when you join army or become adventurer later. Because it’s dangerous training, solo action is prohibited. Until the training day come, talk everything you need with your teammate.」
After distributed expedition training guidebook, Lotte-sensei ended that morning homeroom.
Ferris rushed to Jeanette who was putting away her book from the table.
「 Jeanette-san! Good morning!」
「 Ferris? Wha-wha-wha-what is it? To suddenly call this high noble me is ru-ru-ru-rude you know!?」
Jeanette voice was trembled.
Her heart pounding since it was the first time for Ferris to greet her. And because she accidentally spoke badly, she immediately regrets it.
「 Wa-wait, Jeanette-san!? Why are you suddenly hitting your head?」
「 Because I am an idiot! Take this! Take this! This mouth too needs to be ripped up!!」
「 No, your mouth will be torn off. Your blood will come out.」
There was Jeanette who tried to tear off her own lips and Ferris who is desperately trying to stop that.
Jeanette stood up because she’s afraid to say more bad things if they stay like this.
「 To-today I will let you do this much! I have something to do after this!」
「 Please wait!」
Ferris jumps to Jeanette who tried to leave in hurry and clung to her waist.
(Kya!? Ferris is! Ferris is! She is so daring!!)
Jeanette’s heart was frozen. Can not move anymore.
「 Wha-wha-wha-what-what’s with you…….?」
「 Please don’t go! Because we finally become friend, there are a lot of things I want to talk with you!」
「 Um, er… after all, you hate me right…?」
Ferris looked up with teary eyes and trembled like a puppy.
There’s no way Jeanette could resist such Ferris.
「 Of course I like you.」
Jeanette who spontaneously answered in loud voice finally realized that everyone’s gaze were gathered on her.
「 She said like…」 「 That Rheinzlich-san is confessing…」 「This is scoop.」 「 So Rheinzlich-san have such character huh…」
Classmate’s murmur made Jeanette’s face so red like almost emitting fire.
「 I’m so glad…. You really like me right!?」
「 Eee… yeah, I like you….」
It was like shame play already.
「 Then, will you eat your lunch together with me…?」
「 Eh… eh…?」
To Ferris request, Jeanette couldn’t give an answer except nodding with bright red face.
