I made an appointment with an [acquaintance] and came to the sorcerer’s group’s office in the castle.
When I entered the room with Yoko by my side, the section chief who had sexually harassed her was slumped in his chair.
“It’s nice to meet you, I’m Act, Guildmaster of the [Gem of Heavenly Gift]. I’m sorry to take up so much of your time.”
The Chief looked at me and snorted, “Hmmm ……!”
“That’s right! You’re a commoner, and you’re taking up my precious time as a nobleman!”
“I’ll be brief. Chief ……, you sexually harassed one of our former members, didn’t you?”
Even though she had left the guild, she was still my subordinate whom I had carefully raised.
I’ll never forgive this man for inflicting such a deep wound on her heart.
“I don’t remember that. Do you have any proof of that?”
“What!? Proof or not, you did it! The woman was my subordinate, whom I took good care of.”
“Without physical evidence, you can make up any story you want, young guildmaster.”
“You’re absolutely right.”
“Right? Now, outsiders, get the hell out of here. Yoko, you stay here. I need to talk to you about some business. I’d like to talk to you one-on-one about your work. …… Guhya-hya-hya.”
When I see the Chief smiling freakishly, I am convinced that he is guilty I’m sure of it.
Yoko looks at me with a frightened expression.
“Don’t worry. Leave it to Master, and everything will be fine.”
Fredrika, who had been waiting behind me, stood in front of Yoko as if to protect her.
I covered my right eye with my right hand.
“I’m going to show you the true power of a Class S appraisal eye.”
……! My right eye shines brightly.
The image of Yoko was projected in front of us.
“This is …… me?”
“Yes, it’s an image from the past in this room.”
The Chief approached Yoko and unreservedly touched her buttocks and breasts.
“What is this power?!”
“It’s the power of my appraising eye. The left eye can see into the future and see hidden potential. With my right eye, I can look in the past.”
“In the future …… past ……, NO WAY! That appraising eye! [Eye of the Time Lord]! It’s an S-rank appraisal eye that sees everything.”
As a court magician, he seemed to have noticed the true nature of my eyes.
“That is impossible! No one with such rare eyes has appeared in the last few centuries…….?! How can it be in a commoner kid like you?!”
“That’s none of your business. …… Now, if I submit this evidence, what do you think will happen to your position in the court?”
“Ku Kukuku……! But you see……! If you die now, there will be no problem with that evidence…….!
……! The Chief pointed his right hand at me.
In a blink of an eye, Frederica moves in front of me.
She takes out a knife from her pocket and threw it at him.
Gakin …! and the sound of metal clashing against each other.
“Bakana?! You saw through my no-chant wind magic and cut it with a knife!?”
Fredrica restrains the Chief and pushes him down to the ground.
“No way! You can’t see the motion of the attack because there is no chanting, and there is no way you can catch the wind blade with your eyes. ……!”
“I can see everything with my eyes.” (Act)
With this appraising eye that can see into the future, I can predict the timing of attacks and where they will land.
Frederica said in a dusky voice.
“…… How dare you try to kill my precious master? I’ll have you torn to pieces.”
“Don’t do it. It’s a waste of time and magic power. Now ……, Chief.”
I crouch down in front of him.
“I’m not a demon either. I’m an outsider. If you can properly apologize to Yoko and promise not to do this again, you can pretend the evidence never happened.”
“Yeah, what do you say?”
I order Frederica to release the restraints.
The Chief gets down on his knees in front of Yoko.
“I’m sorry! It was a spur of the moment thing! I’m so sorry!”
“So you admit your guilty?”
“Yeah! I did it! But I swear it won’t happen again! It’s true…..!”
Yoko looked not so convinced.
“Are you surprised?”
“Don’t worry. This is not the end of the story. Isn’t that right, Edward?”
The door opened with a crunch, and in walked a young man who reminded me of a young lion.
“Eh, His Royal Highness Prince Edward!?”
Edward, the first prince of this country, came in.
He walked up to me and bowed his head.
“It’s been a while, Act-san.”
“What? The crown prince bowed to a mere commoner kid.”
“It’s been a while. Well, Edward, did you hear it?”
“Yes, I did.”
The Crown Prince looks at the crawling Chief as if he were looking at dust.
“As a nobleman in the service of the court, you should be ashamed of yourself. ……!”
“This is different. ……”
“What’s different? We have all the evidence. You’ve confessed to the crime yourself. You should be prepared for severe punishment. ……!”
“Oh, no. …… Give me a break. …… I’m only touching the a*s of a commoner woman. ……”
But Edward’s anger did not abate.
“Commoners and nobles alike are the people who live in this country. There is no difference. If you don’t understand such things, it seems that the status of nobility is useless to you.”
“No, no. ……! Your Highness! Please reconsider, Your Highness! Your Highnessssssssss!”
Later, in the office of the guild【The Gem of Heavenly Gift】.
“Act-san! It’s been a while!”
Yoko came to show me that she was doing well.
“I’m sorry to have taken up so much of your time.”
“Don’t worry about it. Just give me a progress report.”
I heard that the head of the Court Magicians was fired and stripped of his nobility.
It may seem too harsh a punishment.
But Yoko was not the only woman who was victimized, there were many other women as well.
Later, a number of additional crimes came to light, and the section chief was disciplined.
“The new person who took over the post of section chief is a very nice person, and I’m enjoying my job!”
“I see. That’s good.”
“Yes! It’s all thanks to Act-san! Thank you so much for all your help!”
….! She bows her head.
“So, …… Guilmaster. The thing about coming back here…….”
She seemed to be reluctant to say anything, since she had wanted to come back to me once before.
“Just get the hell out of here. You’re wasting your time.”
“Are you sure you?”
“You’re no longer a member of our guild. Now get your a*s out of here and go back to your place”
She has tears in her eyes and bends over 90 degrees to say.
“I will never forget this favor! Never never! I’ll pay you back a hundred times over!”
“I see. I’m counting on you.”
“Yes! Excuse me!”
Yoko bowed several times and left the room.
“That’s great, Master.”
Frederica, who had been quiet until now, came to my side.
“It’s not only that you’ve solved the problem, but you’ve also created a great pipeline and loan with the most promising candidate for the next head of the court magicians. It’s the most vicious thing I’ve ever seen, Master.”
“…… But I don’t understand. I did what I had to do, so why am I being thanked?”
Fredricka’s eyes darted to the side and then she smiled …… …….
“Master, you’re quite a villainous guildmaster”
