Just another Isekai Lover~

Chapter 51: Secret talk <<Isaac’s side>>

Listening to the sound of footsteps moving away from me, I suddenly appeared from the corner of the corridor.

I walked up to him, smiling at the sight of my childhood friend who had been so spectacularly rejected.

“Was it okay to let her go?”

I asked Leo, who was leaning against the wall with his arms crossed and turned to look in the direction Charlotte-san had gone.

She had quickly gone to the library, so unfortunately she was no longer there.

“I didn’t have any other choice. My father would have been very upset if I had pestered her too much.”

Leo cowered, not wanting to offend Charlotte-san.

As long as he couldn’t win her over with his face or position, he would have to move carefully.

She is different, for better or worse, so she has to be handled with caution.

“It’s not a good idea to upset her now, especially if she gets angry and goes to another country.”

“Yeah. That’s why we have to get closer little by little. But she seems to be quite wary of me. It might have been a foolish move to bring up the subject of the Crown Princess.”

The blonde-haired young man who smiled annoyedly lamented that he had honestly failed.

The emerald eyes that had a hint of melancholy in them were filled with some impatience and anxiety.

Well, it is true that I underestimated Charlotte-san’s cautious…… or rather troublesome aspect. I didn’t expect her to so easily dismiss the position of Crown Princess. I thought it would be more or less dazzling. ……

“Maybe she doesn’t want to follow in her sister’s footsteps, right? See, after the hoax incident, your dissatisfaction with Scarlett exploded, didn’t it? Maybe she saw that and got scared. Well, thanks to you, Leo, that rumor has been put to rest.”

With a single word from the crown prince and president of the student council, the rumors were rewritten and everyone easily turned their back on them.

It won’t erase all the frustration with Scarlett, but it will settle the surface. Just on the surface……

Once dissatisfaction explodes, it is sure to reappear somewhere else. Scarlett, in particular, has made too many enemies. It’s half my fault and half Leo’s fault, but if you act like you’re so high and mighty, it’s only natural that the people around you will be antagonistic.

There are officially recognized candidates for the crown princess in the school. ……

Scarlett is not an idiot, but she is a little unthinking. She acts in ways that are hardly wise and ends up strangling herself.

This incident could have been avoided if Scarlett had been smart about it.

“Huh…”

I think of a beautiful blue-haired girl with a narrow vision, blind for better or worse, and sigh.

I don’t dislike Scarlett and I think she’s cute, like a little sister, but her personality is too difficult.

Most importantly, I didn’t know why she was overreacting so much to Charlotte-san’s words and actions.

That’s not simply dislike, it’s more like there are other circumstances ……? I don’t know what to say about that expression of desperation, but I don’t care about that right now.

“By the way…… why did you help Scarlett, Leo? With Charlotte-san around, I don’t think we’ll need her anymore…. Is this to insure us in case we don’t get Charlotte-san’s help?”

Leo let out a chuckle when I told him that he could have abandoned her…….

“Well? I wonder why?”

He cowered in a frightened manner and dodged the subject at random.

Even as a childhood friend, I could not understand what Leo was thinking at all.

The reason why we contacted Scarlett in the first place was because we needed her abilities. If someone better than Scarlett appeared, it would be natural that she would be useless.

Personally, I consider Scarlett to be a cute little sister, but I don’t think I’ll be covering for her…….

I think it’s only fair to cut her loose now that her usefulness has diminished.

Is it because Scarlett is the vice president of the student council….? Or as a final act of mercy? Or because Charlotte-san cared about Scarlett…..?

Well, I don’t know….. After all, it is impossible to decipher Leo’s thoughts. It would be better to give up quickly.

“For that matter, how do we get Charlotte-san to join us? I don’t think it’s going to be straightforward in her case……”

What chance do we have when we are seen as objects of precaution? I asked, and Leo’s expression faltered slightly.

“I guess not. It’s not going to be easy. But we’ll do whatever it takes to get her on our side, for the sake of our longing.”

Leo’s emerald eyes held a strong conviction as he said so.

What comes to mind is the promise and vow we made to each other when we were children.

──── We nodded to each other to confirm our intentions, and then set about fulfilling our long-held wishes.

    Welp, I do think that Scarlett went too far with her antics but Crown Prince sama, even with all her faults, treating someone as a disposable pawn is a big no no in my books. Even better, your schemes will push Scarlett to worsen her jealousy towards Charlotte even further.

    By the time these two busy plotting something to Charlotte, she already learned or maybe invented two or three new magics for her own safety.

  3. I’m pretty sure CP Leo likes Scarlet, but for the sake of the royal family he needs to be with Charlotte (the more talented sister).
