Professor Belkham has left.
The only ones left were me and Iris, who was quietly doing some difficult calculations. With full motivation, I went back to my room to watch some anime.
A small figure came pattering by.
“Hey, Mama look-alike, where’s Mama?”
A brown-skinned girl with white hair and red eyes asked me, rolling her eyes.
Strangely enough, this girl can recognize me as a copy and the main body as two different people. What’s even stranger is that she calls the main body “Mama,” but that’s about it.
“Mel, please don’t call me ‘mama look-alike’ in front of other people, okay?”
“So what do I call you?”
“…… Mama C?”
“Mama C, where’s Mama?”
Such a straightforward girl. I don’t think I can fool her too much, but oh well.
For some time, Iris’s hand, which had been absentmindedly running a pen, had stopped.
But her pen started moving again.
She seems to have a desire to pursue the matter, but she seems to think that ‘ the reason I’m not informed is that I am not qualified to be informed’.
In other words, the main body doesn’t know what to inform her of and what not to.
Well, it’s only a matter of time before Charu draws her into the ‘Round Table’, and when that happens, I’m sure she’ll know a lot, I guess? Good luck till then.
“Mama must be in the shut-in house.”
I brought Mel to my room and opened the simple transfer magic device on the wall, the ‘Anywhere Door’.
She smiled adorably at me and then disappeared through the door.
Okay, now I don’t have to babysit her. I lay down on my bed, ready to watch some anime this time, when another visitor appeared.
“Hello, Zemphis-dono, how are those muscles of yours?”
This time it was a muscular man in a tank top. He’s the instructor in charge of the physical training class, I think.
Coming back to the conference room with Iris, I answered.
“Is there something you want from me?”
“You’re looking quite gloomy. Are you okay? Are you doing your strength training?”
I’m a brainy guy, not a physical guy, and I don’t like to work out.
” Well, I came here today to ask you a favor.”
Please leave, I swallowed such thoughts that was about to come out of my mouth. I kept a blank expression on my face, as if I were in sage mode.
“It’s that physical technique you showed me in class earlier. Charlotte Zemphis had a similar technique, but could you tell me more about it?”
A strange voice came out. I don’t know what you mean.
“Your physical technique seems to be quite unique. I would love to incorporate it into my classes, so I need your help. Just that.”
The tank top teacher flexed his muscles and then bowed his head. Is that how you request people to do things?
Well, me(or rather the main body) used no special physical techniques. It was from an anime. …… Ah, the special one.
However, I couldn’t be honest about it and can’t teach it at all because it was just copying what was back there.
“Unfortunately, that is something that has been handed down from generation to generation in the Zemphis family, so it is not something that can be taught easily.”
“Hmm? Charlotte did teach me many things, you know? And you were around for a while, but you didn’t see it as a problem, did you?”
Iris, who was quietly solving the computational problem, broke into the conversation and said so.
“W-Why are you staring at me? Did I say spoke something unnecessary?”
Yeah, that was something unnecessary. Well, that’s it.
That’s why I’m going to use you again.
“Teacher, Iris has been taught everything. She will explain everything to you.”
“Eh, why should I go to ……?”
“Of course, there’s a reward, isn’t there!?”
When I said this, the tank top teacher’s white teeth gleamed.
“Exactly. I’m going to get plenty of funds from the headmaster since I’ll be using it in my classes.”
“So, Iris. You’ll do it, won’t you?”
“Is it okay for me, though? I think you or Char would be more suitable. ……”
“I’m busy, so is Char. It’s fine. And you can get paid for your part-time job.”
“I am glad to hear that, but if I have to work more than one job, my training will be neglected.”
Didn’t think a counterattack would come, though.
“Teaching is also a way of learning.”
I said something to that effect, and she said, “I see, that’s true”.
That’s how I got through yet another difficult situation.
“Is Haruto there? Hey, can you tell me how to remotely control the magic?”
“Is Haruto-dono there? I’d like to talk to you a little bit about magic theory.”
Rias and Marianne onee-chan appeared.
On the contrary, even teachers, students, and people who have never spoken to me before came to me one after another to ask me to teach them, what’s with this?
What the hell is going on?
I left them behind for the time being—.
When I was relaxing at my shut-in house, Hurt C, a copy of me, came in and was pissed off.
“That’s why. The main body should do something about it.”
I was told that all sorts of people kept coming to the house, asking for help and advice.
“How did that happen?”
It’s never happened before, has it?
“It seems like Char is singing my praises all over the place, you know?”
To praise someone even when I’m not around. …… What a nice girl who loves her brother!
So I can’t say it strongly. Should remind her gently, huh. Although it seems to be too late.
“Seems like I have no choice but to go on a trip, given the situation. Well, take care of this fellow for me.”
Beside me, Mel-chan was quietly working on her Japanese study book(Hiragana learning notebook) (which I had made).
“What are you making her do?”
“She wants to watch anime, but she doesn’t know the language.”
“You …… are going to drag a little child into the swamp again?”
It’s good to have more comrades, isn’t it?
So, I went back to school, although it was very troublesome.
However, I have no idea what I’m going to do. Well, I guess I can manage. If I wanted, I could get Professor Tia involved. Or, rather, let’s do that. That would solve everything!
