By the time Marion had passed through that road, the royal castle’s Knight Order had already been dispatched in a hurry to take care of the incident as they had sensed something unusual had happened in the academy.
In the midst of the chaos, the young ladies who had fainted were being taken to the first aid room, the confused young ladies kept screaming, the young ladies who tripped and fell were being treated, and some were still crying while trembling.


Even when Marion inquired from the knights, they only shook their heads and didn’t give her any answer.

It seemed like the knights had no clue about what had happened either.


“A t-t-t-t-terribly d-d-d-disgusting thing was there.”


Francesca, who was only ten meters behind Emma during the incident, answered as she quivered with tears. 


“A-Around Emma-sama, it was as if it was aiming for Emma-sama.
That something s-surrounded Emma-sama…”


Perhaps just the memory of it made her nauseous, but Francesca kept covering her mouth with a handkerchief and trembled to the point her teeth clattered.


“Are you alright, Francesca-sama?


As Marion hugged Francesca’s shoulders, her unending trembles reminded Marion of the earlier restlessness she felt.

Just what on earth did she see?


“The situation had been like this by the time we arrived, right, Caitlyn?”


“Uh-huh, the situation has been like that by the time we arrived, Catherine.”


The twins also stroked Francesca’s back worriedly.

“I-I-I… E-Even though I had to save E-Emma-sama, I ended up r-r-r-running away.
H-H-How terrible I was, e-even though Emma-sama h-h-has always been kind to m-me.
N-No one, n-nobody w-w-went to h-help Emma-sama…”


With tears falling in large drops, Francesca wept about having abandoned Emma.

At a glance, Emma was cowering as numerous of that rustling ‘something’ surrounded her.

Her mind knew that she should help her, but her body, or maybe her instincts, went against it, and she ran away as fast as she could.


“Emma-sama was already gone when I went to take a look at the scene.
…Catherine-sama, Caitlyn-sama, I will have to ask you to look after Francesca-sama for a while.
I’ll go to take a look at the first aid room.
Perhaps Emma-sama was being taken there.” The moment Marion stood up from her seat, a male teacher, who was not their embroidery teacher, entered the classroom.


“Today’s class is canceled.
We have contacted your respective houses.
After someone from your house picks you up, please wait at home for further notice.
For boarding students, I will now send you to the dormitory.
The academy will send people to inquire about today’s situation.
When that time comes, please kindly cooperate with us.”


Catherine and Caitlyn, who lived at the dormitory, were asked to follow the teacher.


“Pardon us, Marion-sama.
Please take care of Francesca-sama until someone from House Delacour picks her up.”


They couldn’t leave Francesca alone in her current condition.
Marion had no choice but to nod at the twins’ words.


Just what exactly happened in the academy?

Is Emma-sama safe?


This was the first time in the academy’s history where an uproar required knights to be dispatched.



Author’s words: Whew, I had unexpectedly turned it into a school panic (sweat)
