Chapter 45: Convocation

Having managed to conclude my mentally taxing audience with Emperor Oswald, I finally made my way home.

I returned to the school, exhausted, and holed myself up in my room for a while.

The week began in the blink of an eye, and I went to school as usual.

I was not summoned for any investigation related to the summoning technique, and I went to school  without incident.

‘Let’s get the hell out of here and take a nap,’ I thought, but I couldn’t go back to my dormitory as quickly as I wanted,and was summoned to the meeting room for a meeting of the Disciplinary committee.

I thought I was going to be able to go home early, but a meeting of the committee…… it is not my lucky day.

‘Worst timing ever,’ I lamented, letting out a deep sigh with a bad mood.

While I was already feeling depressed, His Highness Grayson, who was sitting next to me, glanced at me.

“I wonder what the gathering will be about today …… What do you think, Miss Charlotte?”

Perhaps wondering about the sudden call to the meeting, His Highness Grayson directly asked me a question.

I had no agenda in mind, and I wondered, ‘Come to think of it, why did we get called anyway?’ I wondered.

“Well, …… since it’s the end of the semester, maybe we’ll have a meeting to reflect on the first semester. Then, “Let’s work harder in the second semester based on these reflections!” and get fired up for the second semester…….”

I smile amiably, unsure of myself as I desperately try to squeeze out some wisdom.

But it seemed to be a somewhat convincing hypothesis, and His Highness Grayson nodded his head in agreement.

“I see. So we’re going to talk about what we need to reflect on and what we need to improve on for the second semester. It is quite possible, isn’t it?”

Crossing his arms, His Highness Grayson pondered, “Don’t other committees have review meetings?” I have a new question.

Being unfamiliar with the school’s system, I almost blurted out, “Well, come on, ……?” I had to shrug it off.

His Highness Grayson has a valid question, but I’m a new student, so I don’t want to be asked. I have no idea, not one bit!

But so far I haven’t heard of any other committee meetings. If that’s the case, it seems unlikely that there will be a meeting to reflect on the situation. It seems strange that only the Disciplinary Committee would have a meeting to reflect on the situation. If I had committed a terrible blunder, but as far as I know, I haven’t heard anything about that. ……

I put my hand on my chin and think about it. I search for other possibilities, but due to the …… overwhelming lack of information, I can’t come up with anything.

When this happened, I had no choice but to wait for the committee chairs to arrive.

‘Hasn’t the meeting started yet?’ and in the midst of my sobbing, Dina-sama and Gerard-senpai appear from the rear door.

We were delighted to see the long-awaited arrival of the top leaders, and the two of them went up to the podium in front of the blackboard.

“First of all, let me thank you. I am truly grateful to all of you for gathering here on such short notice.”

Dina-sama, who honestly expresses her gratitude without being proud of being the eldest daughter of the Marquis family, bows her head. Following that, Gerard-senpai also bowed.

In the classroom, which was naturally quiet, Dina-sama raised her head vigorously and put her hands on the teaching table with a bang.

Radiating a solemn atmosphere, she looked at us with a dignified expression on her face.

“Then, Let’s get right down to it. The only reason I have summoned you this time is to discuss ──── the security ・・・・・・・ of the forest training camp.”

Dina-sama, who immediately began the conversation, presented an agenda that was typical of the Disciplinary Committee.

I was interested in the agenda, which did not resemble a review meeting at all, and I said, ‘there we go”.

But as I ruminated over the word “forest camp” in my brain, I realized a fact. That is ────.

“──── isn’t the forest training camp an event that happens during the summer vacation……! Don’t tell me we have to guard a school event even during vacation……!”

I was so surprised that I raised my voice and looked at Dina-sama as if I was clinging to her.

‘Tell me it’s not true,……! I earnestly wish to …… her, but she only shakes her head apologetically.’

“it’s our job to guard school events. It doesn’t matter if we’re on vacation or not. However, I don’t think it’s that hard since the participants will be accompanied by their guards at the forest camp. Our job is just to look around the area and give instructions to the guards.”

Dina-sama who insists “compared to usual, it’ll be a piece of cake.”  Desperately tries to encourage a discouraged me.

It is true that if the participants ──── are accompanied by noble or royal guards, our workload will be considerably reduced, but it will still be a lot of work. If I could, I would not have wanted to participate.

Will the security for school events during vacations also be turned over to the Disciplinary Committee? …… I wish they would at least let me take it easy during the summer vacation. I was planning to stay in the territory, but I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to …….

My plans to “stay at home and relax” were shattered, and I was at a loss.

My shoulders slumped as I lamented why things didn’t go as I had hoped.

As I was despairing over the unreasonable reality, His Highness Grayson, who was sitting next to me, patted me on the back.

I was left alone with my head hanging low, as if he was telling me to cheer up or to just give up.

“Then, let’s start with an overview of the forest training camp: ────Gerard.”

I was so depressed elsewhere while Dina-sama mercilessly proceeded with the discussion.

When Dina-sama called his name, Gerard-senpai replied cheerfully, ‘Yes.’

He was entrusted with the role of explaining the situation, so he saluted and took a step forward.

“The Flugel Academy’s forest camp is scheduled to take place four days after the closing ceremony. The place is to be rented from the imperial family’s property, Mount Karos! The camp will last for three days. The main activities will be walking and hunting in the mountains. Sometimes we will go mountain climbing! We are almost forced to participate, but basically it’s like a free participation, relaxed off-campus learning experience!”

What? The general students are free to participate? We are the only ones who are forced to participate! Isn’t that unfair!

”Why are we the only ones ……” I lamented, regretting from the bottom of my heart that I had joined the Public Discipline Committee.

But then I changed my mind, thinking that free participation would reduce the burden of security. At least, it was much better than being in charge of guarding the entire school.

While Remembering the hard work at the gymnasium and somehow convincing myself that it was all worth it, Dina-sama raises herself from the teaching table.

“The truth is, the camp is not a very important event, so there are not many participants. Even last year, there were only about 30 people who attended. The number of guards can also be reduced to some extent. At least, there is no need to mobilize all the members of the Public Discipline Committee.”

What? The number of guards can be reduced. ……? No need to mobilize all the members of the Public Discipline Committee……? That means that maybe I don’t have to attend the forest camp!……  There is still hope!

Poof, my face lit up and I say, ‘Thank you, God!’ I thanked God from the bottom of my heart.

‘Next time, I’ll make a donation to the temple!’ I was completely buoyed by the thought. The other students’ expressions were cheerful, as if they might be able to throw away their troublesome work.

But only one person, …… Dina-sama, looked unflappable.

“ So, this year, like last year, we were going to recruit about ten volunteers from the committee members to attend the camp in small groups…. as usual,……”
