5. My First human friend.

Translator: Clover

Editor: Fiendish


“Cookie, Choco, Mint..um, I’m…”

I can’t do this. It’s against the law to ask the fairies what everyone at the school thinks of me, isn’t it?

“Margaret, what’s wrong?”

“Are you hungry?”

“Shall I go and snatch Cynthia’s snack?”

 I was sitting at my desk, remembering Count Lewis’s words and groaning, when Lady Canaan and her friends surrounded me.

“Lady Margaret! Your grades are displayed on the board! 10th place! Lady Margaret is surely not worthy to be His Highness Keith’s fiancée.”

“It can’t be helped, Lady Canaan, Lady Margaret, right?”

“Yes, even though she’s from the same Duke’s family, she has a sister far better of her own age.”

“Oh!? She’s a year younger than her, isn’t she?

I stood up before I was about to be surrounded by more giggles.

“What was your rank, Lady Canaan?”

As if my question hadn’t been expected, Lady Canaan was dumbfounded and then turned bright red.

“She’s ranked 103rd!”

“I was squealing over her report card!”

“I’ll make her incapable of remembering formulas for the rest of her life.”

“Oh, don’t worry about me!”

“That’s right, that’s right!”

“Countess Luna Turner, Countess Mira Marshall and Viscountess Sanna Landmark.”

It was the first time I called out the names of Lady Canaan’s friends, and this time, the three of them had their faces dyed blood red.

“I’m going to fight back from now on. I will not forget a single word you say.”

“…Lady Margaret, what do you mean…”

“We will never…Lady Margaret…”

“Come on, Lady Canaan.”

Lady Canaan met the gaze of the three.

“It has nothing to do with me anymore.”

She said and turned back, clicking her heels.

“No, no, no! Please wait!”

“We did as Lady Canaan commanded!”

“You said that you would protect us if anything happened to us!”

The three of them chased after Lady Canaan, while bowing apologetically to me.

I wondered if this was the right thing to do.

As I was about to take my seat, I suddenly felt someone’s eyes on me.

“I’m sorry for being so noisy and interfering with your studies.”

“No! Not at all.”

The one who answered me was Miss Sophia, the Baron’s daughter.

“Oh, that….Lady Margaret!”

“How can I help you?”

When I smiled, Miss Sophia looked very happy.

“It was very nice!”

“…Huh?”

At her unexpected comment, I let out a goofy sound that was not appropriate for His Highness Keith’s fiancée.

“I’ve always admired your coolness and unflappability no matter what is said to you. But the fact that you were able to fight back with just one word today was also very admirable! Oh!…”

Sophia put her hand on her mouth and looked down, perhaps noticing that her remarks might be disrespectful to Lady Canaan.

“I won’t tell anyone.”

“Lady Margaret…”

“I was so happy, I’ll keep it as a  treasured secret.”

“Oh, may I speak to you again?”

“Oh yes! Of course.”

Could this be the first friend I’ve made in fifteen years!?

“Margaret has a new friend!”

“Unlike the mean people, the air around Sophia is clean.”

“Let’s drown her in champagne to celebrate!”

I take back what I questioned before. I’ve always had fairies in my life. Maybe this was my first human friend for the first time in 15 years!!
