V.A. Ch.9

Ch 9 [Selim Snare] A teacher who is not well-liked.

Me, flying with a broomstick up to the Academy of Magic and Witchcraft, and Roy, the heroine.

“What should I do with this…”

In the forest behind the school building, there grows a large tree.

It is the “Tree of Tyranny”. It is said that Ein, the founder of this school, planted this tree in ancient times, wishing for the peace of this land.

In other words, it is like a monument to the founding of the school.

“What should I do… Marcoy-kun? The teacher will be angry with me…”

“I know, right~…”

And then.

“… What are you doing, you guys?”

This baritone voice!

I turned around and there she was, a tall woman with hair like wakame seaweed.

“Oh, you are…! Selim Snare-sensei…!”

Selim Snare. She is one of the most important characters here!

She is a female teacher who is always mean to Harris.

But there is a deeper reason for it…

In the beginning of the book, I thought she was a jerk who always interfered with Harris along with Marcoy, but in the last volume, her reputation was turned upside down.

Snare is a very popular character.

“Yeah, I’m glad…”
I’m freaked out. Yes, I was. Snare-sensei is on my side, isn’t she?

In the original story, Snare was explicitly patronizing Marcoy. It was because she was from the same Dark Wizard’s side.

If it had been any other teacher, or if I had been Harris, I would have been in trouble.

But I am Marcoy. I was Snare’s favorite student.

In other words, she’ll make the scandal go away…!

“Snare-sensei. I’m sorry, actually…”

Then she looked at the shattered tyrannical tree and…

“You ahhhhhh!”
She looks indignant and comes over to me, and then she overthrows me.


Ah!? Why?

“You did this!?”

“Oh, no… well… yes…”

A bummed out Snare-sensei pulls out her cane and thrusts it at me.


The paralyzing magic hits me and I’m stuck.

Whaaat!? Whyyy!?
Wasn’t Marcoy your favorite in the original!?

No… wait.

Yes, the Great Tree of Tyranny was, I believe, very dear to Snare’s heart!

Yes it was! No wonder she hates me for destroying it!

“I’ll kill you!”

“Please don’t!”

Roy tries to stop her.

But Snare doesn’t care. Roy is hit with a “Boom!”

“What are you doing?”

I use my physical enhancement to force the paralysis out of me.

“! How did you… do that to my paralysis spell?”

“Don’t you dare raise your hand to a woman. I mean, you’re a teacher, right?”

“Who are you to tell me what to do when you destroy the school’s equipment?”

Ah, yes. That’s right, sorry…

And then…

A bird circled above us.

It morphs and takes on human form.

“What are you guys doing?”

“! Gandalve, the headmaster of the school…”

The one who landed softly on the ground was the indigo-haired female headmistress Gandalve.

“I was going to punish this student for destroying the school’s equipment…”

Snare says, glaring at me.

She totally hates me…


Gandalve snapped her fingers.

Then the shattered tree was restored.

“This is all good, right?”

“… Thank you very much, Headmaster. This brat… students are not allowed to enter the forest. Furthermore, it is a fact that they broke equipment.”

Uh, sure…

However, the Headmasteress just smiled.

“Don’t get me wrong, Snare.”
She smiles at Snare-sensei and says.

“Marcoy and Roy aren’t exactly students yet. They will become students of our school only after they participate in the opening ceremony. Am I wrong?”

“… Technicality.”

“But the fact is, they don’t have our student handbook yet. They have not yet completed the placement process. They are no different from the general public. If they didn’t know about the rules of the school, then they would be less guilty, wouldn’t they?”

Grr… and Snare-sensei gritted her teeth.

She looked very, very uncomfortable and nodded…

“Good. Well, Snare. And Roy. You go ahead to the hall.”

Roy breathed a sigh of relief, and Snare clicked her tongue!

I’m about to leave, too, when…

“Ah, Marcoy. You should stay here for a while.”

That’s right-…



Snare went with Roy to the school building.

I was taken to the headmaster’s office.

It was a huge room filled with books and toys.

“You did it right away.”


I explained the situation from the beginning.

I explained from the beginning that I had missed the carriage, that I had met Roy, and that I had come here on a broomstick that I had thrown away.

“You really are an outlier, aren’t you?”

That’s because the movements are completely different from the movements that Marcoy does in the original work…

“I won’t even ask you how you knew the route to the school island that the students weren’t supposed to know about.”

“Oh, you don’t mind, do you…?”
“Yes, you don’t have to tell me.”

It was good… I was scared that she was going to ask me about that.

“So why did you call me?”

“I thought I’d give you this.”

Gandalve snapped her fingers, and an eye patch appeared on the desk.

“What is this patch?”

“It is a sealed eye patch. You can put it on the left eye where the red stone is located.”

I did as I was told and put the patch on my left eye, just like an eye doctor would give me.

But strangely enough, it did not hide my left eye.

“This is only to hide the color of your eye.”

She snapped her fingers again, and a mirror appeared in the air.

The left eye, which had been red, was now the same color as the right eye.

“You mean a cover-up…”

“Yes. Your left eye is the red stone of the great sage. Its existence must be kept secret. Therefore, I have asked you to wear a magical eye patch that blocks recognition.”

With the eye patch on, the left eye looks just like a normal eye.

Well, I didn’t feel like I was wearing it, but I didn’t want to take the risk of walking around with a treasure hanging from it, so I was honestly grateful for this.

“Now… Marcoy-kun. I wanted to give you one piece of advice.”

“You wanted to?”

“Oh, that’s easy. It’s very simple. Don’t get into trouble.”

Oh… you’re late. I’ve already had a problem…

“I like you and I know you are special. I will help you to some extent… but you are just one of my students. So I can’t show too much favoritism.”

“If I do too much, you can’t cover up for me?”

“Yes. So, well, you have to be careful not to cause too much trouble, okay?”

I don’t really want to stand out. Even though I’ve come to this stage and I feel like I’m on the verge of ruin…

“Then get off. Go to the hall and wait. [Sorting] will take place there.”

Oh, I see. There was a sorting event…

“Excuse me.”

I leave Gandalve’s room.

Then there was a female teacher with wakame hair, Ms. Selim Snair, in front of the room.

“Oh, that…”

“… Tch”

She stuck her tongue out at me!

The teacher turned her head and strode away.

What’s with that person…?

“… What are you dawdling about? I’ll show you to the hall, follow me.”

Oh, I see…. Then why didn’t you just say so?

The teacher stopped with a snap, glanced at me and said,

“… I hate students like you. Marcoy Draco.”

How can… this happen?
