 That was sweet.

 I called Alma back right away, but she didn't pick up.
 I tried again and again, but she wouldn't pick up.

 Eventually I gave up.

 It's over. .......
 My whole life is over.

 I had dinner with my students at home, took a bath, and was sitting in the living room thinking about the future...

 I was sitting in the living room, absentmindedly thinking about the future, when my phone rang.

 I hurriedly took it out.
 The number on the other end said "Alma".

 I accepted the call without a second thought.

"Dr. Alma, listen to me! It was a misunderstanding!

"......" Hmm, a misunderstanding. I was very shocked to find out that the man who abandoned me in the backwoods was doing nice things with my student in the new place. Let's hear your excuse, shall we?

 Alma's voice was cold.

 I wanted to ask her if she was my ex-girlfriend or something, but she didn't seem to be in a mood to do so.

 I tried my best to explain.
 I explained the truth in all sincerity and without concealment.

 Eventually, Alma's voice began to take on a tone of understanding.
 My former female colleague, who had been listening to me with a huff, summed up the situation after I had explained everything.

"Let's see, ......, so Mr. Brett is currently living a sweet life with three very cute and beautiful students, and he's in love with them. I'm sure you'll be able to understand why I've been so impressed.

There is still a misunderstanding about "...... sweet communal life" and the meaning of "melodic" is quite different, but that's the general idea.

 It's the talent of these women that I'm melodramatic about.
 Please don't mistake that part.

 No, well, I think Rio, Iris, and even Maifa are very cute, but...
 That's the thing, this is the thing.
 I think that ...... is not out of the category of teacher and pupil.

 In the meantime, Alma's voice through the talking spell seemed to be sulking.

I'm not sure. It's a good idea to take a look at the website and see what you can find. Dr. Brett, you're not interested in girls unless they're tight and young.

"No, wait, I never said that. Are you calling me a pedophile too?

I'm sorry for being an old lady.

I'm sorry I'm an old lady." "Well, Alma-sensei, you're only 22, right? I mean, isn't there something wrong with you being angry?


 I can really imagine Alma's cheeks puffed up and sulking just from the voice through the phone wizard.

 But I had no idea what this former female teacher colleague was sulking about.
 I could understand if she was accusing me of something ethical regarding my immorality, but ...... it was a mystery.

 And then Alma changes her voice.

'Well, okay, but trust me. We've known each other for a while, and I can tell from the way he talks that he's not lying.

Sorry, that helps. I'll buy you a meal next time I see you.

 Good. .......
 After all, what you need is an understanding colleague teacher.
 I'll buy you a meal or something and make sure you're in a good mood.

I'll look forward to that date, Mr. Brett. By the way, can I change the subject?

Yeah. Anything interesting happen over there?

"Hmm, nothing interesting. ....... You know, Mr. Silas started saying some strange things, and I thought I should tell you.

"Something strange? Is Silas up to something nefarious again?

 About half a month ago.
 I remember that time when I was called into the chancellor's office at the academy in King's Landing and made to act out a very unreasonable farce.

"Yes. I said, "Why don't we take the students of King's Landing Academy on a field trip? And it's almost already been passed upstairs.

"Social studies field trip: ......? What's that? Are you trying to get us to observe an active Demon Lord Hunter at work?

 If that's the case, it would be extremely annoying for the Demon Lord Hunter on the receiving end, but it might be beneficial for the students to see the real thing.

 I thought, "That's an interesting idea for Silas to come up with...

"No, that's not it. Mr. Silas is going to take his students on a tour of your office, Mr. Brett.

What about ......?

 I didn't know what he was talking about.

"Well, if the students from the academy in King's Landing are coming to ...... my workplace for a field trip, does that mean they're coming here?

"Yes, that's what I mean.

 ...... Are you kidding me?

No, no, no, no, no. It takes a week to get here from King's Landing. It's two weeks round trip. That's impossible.

"I'll answer one at a time. First of all, "for what?" "To remind the students of how blessed the educational environment in King's Landing is, and to motivate them to learn.


 It was a nauseating educational theory.
 It sounded like something Silas would think of.

"What's the point of coming all the way out here to ...... and back in two weeks?

"Well, it looks like they're going to make a day trip back. In other words... instantaneous travel using a transfer magic circle.

What the hell is ......?

 You're an idiot!
 It's a great way to make sure you're getting the most out of your money.

 Transference magicians...

 Each town or city usually has at least one magic facility called a "transfer magic circle," and it is possible to use magic to move between these magic circles.

 By using them, you can jump from city to city in a flash.

 However, since a tremendous amount of magic power is required to activate the magic circle, dozens of heroes usually need to gather together, perform a ritual, and pour in magic power all at once.

 As a result, a tremendous usage fee is required to travel using the transfer magic circle...

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no. Also, they're going to ask for sponsorship and funding from rich families, and they're going to give priority to the children of those families.

"That's absurd. ......

 I sighed heavily.

 I sighed heavily, but I had an idea.

 That's what Silas and his ilk think.
 The rotten elitist mindset - I suppose they want to make us realize that we are different from the commoner heroes at a young age, so that we can gain self-esteem.

 However, Silas' main goal is probably...

"Does he really want to destroy me that badly? ......

"Looks like it. He can't get enough of kicking Dr. Britt out of King's Landing.

 In other words, Silas's main goal is to mock me, I suppose.
 He wants to break me down by showing my miserable state to the students, is that it?

 Or maybe he wants to show his power to the students who accompany him, to show them what will happen to them if they defy him...

"......... How vindictive.

Really. I'm sure you'll be getting a notice soon.

All right. Thanks for the tip, Dr. Alma.

No, no, no. It's been a while since I've had the pleasure of speaking with you. Oh, that's right. One last thing... Mayfa, right? Can you give her a message?

"......"? "? What?

 Suddenly, Alma started to say something strange.
 As I listened to her, Alma said something even more obscure.

"Well... tell her that I won't lose.

"Huh, ......? What the hell is that?

"Hmm, don't tell the insensitive Mr. Brett. Just tell him, and he'll understand. Bye.

Hey, Alma...

 Two, two, two.

 ...... is out.
 What the hell is ...... going on?

 After that, I saw Maifa wandering around after her bath, so I called out to her.

"Hey, Maifa.

....... ...... Hey brother, I'm glad you got through to that guy.

You heard me. And don't you say it. You know what I mean?

Do you know what that means?" "...... Hmm. ...... Yeah, I get it. ...... Interesting, I'll take it.

 I'll take it." Mayfa chuckled and retreated to her bedroom.

 ...... I really got through.
 I don't get it.
