Whenever I’m together with El these days, Erina-sama will immediately show up, forcing her way between us and entangling her arms around El’s.
[Erina]: “Ah, Roselia-sama~ I didn’t see you~”
[Rose]: “Oh dear! I never knew you’re eyesight was this terrible.”
[Erina]: “……N-No, my eyes are working just fine.”
[Rose]: “Do you really think so? If you didn’t notice me standing right next to Prince Routh, then I think a check-up at the hospital is overdue. It’s something I would be very worried about if I were in your shoes!”
[Erina]: “W-Why are you saying such cruel things~!?”
[Rose]: “Huh? But I was just worrying for you.”
El was making an incredibly displeased face, so he forcefully separated himself from Erina-sama and took some distance.
[Erina]: “R-Routh-sama~ Why are you running away~? …..Ah, you!! Have you been telling Routh-sama strange things about me!? That’s terrible~ Don’t you think so~ Routh-sama~?”
She then covered her face and burst into tears.
(They’re crocodile tears though)
[Eric]: “Erina? And Miss Roselia?”
Prince Eric rushed over with the absolute worst timing.
[Erina]: “Eric-sama~ I, was just trying to tell Routh-sama where his classroom is since I didn’t think he knew, and Roselia-sama called me a hindrance~”
She ran over and hugged Prince Eric, asking for his help while continuing to cry.
[Eric]: “Miss Roselia, how could you say something like that? You’ve made Erina cry.”
[Rose]: “Say what? Erina-sama jumped in while I was talking with Prince Routh and said she didn’t see me, so I recommended she get her eyes checked out at a hospital? I never said she was being a hindrance. Right Prince Routh?”
[El]: “Indeed, and on that note, Roselia-sama is currently guiding me around, so I do not need any directions to my classroom, Prince Eric.”
[Eric]: “Hmm, so Erina misunderstood something then? Also, I heard it’s not good for a lady to cry in public.”
[Erina]: “A-Aren’t you on my side Eric-sama~!?”
(This Prince, for once his thick skull is actually helpful. Erina wanted to paint me in a bad light, but she’s doing it right in front of El, the person she’s trying to convince, and Prince Eric is no help as a guy who can’t read the room.)
[Eric]: “I’m always on my brother’s side!”
[Rose]: “…….Prince Eric, pardon us, but we have some errands to run.”
[Erina]: “H-Hold on! Wait, please~!! ……Routh-sama should like me since he’s a secret character, so why isn’t any of this working! …..Roselia, it’s not working because you’re always around.”
Erina-sama shuffled over to me, seizing my arm and glaring up into my eyes.
(O-Ouch!! …..so El really is a target. I never would have thought he’d end up being a secret character.)
[Rose]: “…..I never played the game, so I had no idea he was capture target. And whether I was aware of it or not, it really doesn’t look like he likes you as it is.”
[El]: “Hey, what are you doing!? Get away from Rose!”
El forcefully separated Erina-sama from me before positioning himself as if to protect me.
[Rose]: “……El, let’s just go already.”
I didn’t feel like talking anymore, so I grabbed El’s hand and left.
