“That’s because you…”
“Your Highness, my sister is still young. Please be careful.”
The moment Alex was about to say something, Isaac cut him off. That was enough for complacency. However, the person who stopped talking praised Isaac, rather than arguing.
“You’re a great man. I think I know why Ciel trusts and follows you the most.”
“Our Ciel, about me?”
Isaac was taken aback by the out of the blue praise. I was wondering what he was going to say, so I looked around, but Alex also hesitated at the end of his speech, wondering if it was wrong.
“I think so. I’m sorry if I’m mistaken.”
“No, you’re right. Isaac is the strongest man in the world.”
This was a great opportunity to soothe Isaac. I quickly added a compliment. Frankly, no matter how much the Crown Prince fought with Isaac one-on-one, it would be a draw at best. As such, Isaac was strong.
It was an opponent that they couldn’t defeat unless they got to the level of killing each other with blunt remarks. As such, I hoped that the two would not fight, and that they would get along soon.
“You have to be strong to protect Ciel.”
What should I do with my loyal brother who only knew me. Isaac, who was rather feisty to others, had become indulgent to my problems.
Alex, who did not have a brother, seemed to have found brother Isaac’s attitude quite interesting. He listened carefully to my brother and nodded with a serious face.
“I can fully understand your feelings. If I had a sister, I would too.”
“Do you think so, Your Highness?”
They didn’t even listen to me when I was trying to make them get along, but the two united in the wrong place. Regardless of who said it first, Alex and Isaac started to praise me.
“Our Ciel’s strength is not just her beautiful appearance. As she inherited most of our father’s magical powers, I’m sure she’ll be widely known as a beautiful female magician in the future.”
“That’s not enough. Ciel’s biggest strength is her gentle heart. She has a warm heart so she can’t just ignore people in need.”
This was not some kind of fan battle, but somehow the story began to flow in the wrong direction.
It was true I was a pretty magician, but I was actually far from being sweet or nice, so I didn’t like that because I was rather like a pushover.
“No one can deny that Ciel is the cutest person in the world.”
“I agree with that, but I don’t think it’s enough to simply say cute.”
“Then what would be a good expression?”
I was speechless at the sight of the two discussing with serious faces. I didn’t know what to say. Let’s just clap.
“Anyway, I’m glad you two got along.”
How long had it been like that? Alex took out his pocket watch and checked the time and sighed sadly.
“I have to go see Sir Wilheim.”
“See you later. Your Highness.”
Instead of saying goodbye, Alex once again left a kiss on the back of my hand. If it was just kindness, wouldn’t it have been okay to accept it without saying no?
I didn’t know if I needed to be so sweet to a friend, but Alex was a prince from birth.
“Then I’ll see you later.”
With that one word left, Alex’s refreshing lavender scent faded away. Mission cleared. I just shrugged my shoulders as I saw the back facing over the east building.
“There are only two left, brother.”
Isaac and I held hands and burst into laughter. I’m sorry Alex, but today was the day for my second brother.
There was only one reason why I was wrapped around Isaac while sending the male lead back. This was because Isaac was a human being who risked his life for Ciel.
Even though Isaac knew he was going to die, Isaac would jump into any dangerous situation just because it was for Ciel.
Even before I formally became friends with Alex, even at the very time when I was still agonizing over whether I was the flag of death or not, Isaac was the only one I could trust.
I had even tried to tell Isaac everything for real. Even if the worst happened, Isaac would be on my side.
If I had to leave to protect all of Valentine, then Isaac would be with me.
The only reason Isaac took the sword was to protect me. On the contrary, even if everyone in the world became an enemy, even if I did something wrong, Isaac would definitely be on my side.
How grateful it was to have one such person. I looked up and glanced at Isaac.
“Yes, my little sister.”
“Ciel really loves her brother.”
I didn’t want to take Isaac’s unconditional dedication for granted.
In the original book, he was always the foreman who listened to whatever she wanted, being Ciel’s hands and feet. But he was a precious family to me right now that I wouldn’t trade for anything.
Isaac was literally an ideal brother from a fantasy.
My brother who always took care of me one step ahead, would probably do anything for me in the future. For him, I would be willing to be a sibling for only Isaac for the day.
“My sword is always there to protect you, my beloved sister.”
“My brother Isaac is the most reliable.”
Smiling, I leaned my head on Isaac’s shoulder. When I saw brother Isaac enjoying the tasteless cookies I made, I suddenly remembered the cookies made by Clara.
What my sister made was much prettier and tastier than what I made, but I left it all out early to pay brother Theo.
I’m sorry Alex, but I had decided on a route. Apart from building a career for Clara, I decided to push our pathetic sub-male lead, Theo and Clara’s love path.
By now Theo must be busy with his last job before the vacation, eating a biscuit sprinkled with fragrant herbs.
Alex, I’m going to find you another partner, so please be happy, even if it’s just the two of you. Praying like that, I headed for the martial arts president, Isaac.
“I’ll sit here. All right?”
“Yes, don’t worry.”
I brought a bunch of maids, including Merrill, just in case. The maids delivered the cookies they had prepared in advance to the Knights.
“It’s amazing. I’m sure he’ll win today as well, right?”
“That’s right. My brother is the best.”
Isaac, the last winner, will compete with this winner. Isaac appeared first and soon a knight with beautiful green hair was called.
“Who is that?”
“I’ve always wanted to battle with you, Lord Isaac.”
Flashing green hair and a bright-looking smile with his eyes. Somehow, he seemed to have a very flirtatious temperament.
“It looks like he’s the ace of the White Tiger Division, the long-time rival of the Knights of the Blue Dragon to which Master Isaac belongs.”
“Really? Then it’ll be worth a look.”
Sir Justin, 25, is said to be one of the best young prospects this year.
“Isaac, don’t lose!”
Since that happened, I stood up from my seat and even screamed to cheer for my brother.
Isaac pulled out a sword with a somewhat pleased smile.
Mystiltein, the legendary sword that my father picked up after going out on a dragon hunt, was as difficult to handle as my Levatein.
Originally, there was no one to use it, so it was supposed to rot in the warehouse, but last year, Isaac showed his qualifications as a sword master, and it managed to find an owner.
With his eyes full of seriousness, Isaac looked at his opponent with a relaxed smile.
“I am truly sorry to face you like this.”
“What does that mean?”
“Now that it’s come to this, I’d better show my full potential today.”
Even if the other team’s skills were outstanding, this side was the opponent that even the male lead, the strongest player in the original book, was struggling with.
Enjoying my cheering shouts from behind, Isaac concentrated on the sword.
“Well, that’s it?”
“Is it possible that Lord Isaac has risen to the rank of sword master?”
There was something strange about the noisy atmosphere. I think it was a long time ago that Isaac started dealing with auras, but why was everyone surprised now?
Sir Justin, who had plenty of leeway before, suddenly took a step back with a white complexion.
“Did he ever hide his skills?”
“Then let’s get started.”
My brother must have not shown his skills. Thanks to my support, a one-sided match began.
The game seemed to end in a crushing victory, defying people’s expectations.
“Looks like fun.”
“What, Your Highness?”
Perhaps done with his business, Alex approached us with a tall knight.
“What brings you here, Your Highness?”
“My hands were itching to watch, so I thought I should go out too.”
In the meantime, his eyes were still towards the cookie basket I made. I didn’t know why he was so obsessed with the handmade cookies.
“My brother is really strong.”
“I’m strong too.”
I know that. However, if the two really fought, I didn’t know who to side with then. Of course, for the sake of life, I would have to side with the Crown Prince, but that would make Isaac too pitiful.
“But I don’t want you to fight.”
“Do you think I’m going to lose?”
No, it couldn’t be. Isaac died at the hands of Alex at the end of the day.
If the tragedy was repeated again, then there was really no turning back. I shook my head several times with a slight bite on my lips.
“I don’t want to see you two fight.”
To face the protagonist with a guaranteed victory was smashing a rock with an egg. Alex read my gloomy expression and slowly grabbed my hand.
“I don’t want to see you sad.”
Sir Justin’s sword flew through the air. Fortunately, the person who was considered to be the most worthy of defeating Isaac was tragically and unilaterally defeated, so no one dared to stand up.
“His Majesty the Crown Prince!”
Those who were concentrating on the game realized Alex’s existence only later. Isaac, filled with the joy of victory, hurried to my side.
“Your Highness, are you going to challenge me yourself?”
“Not today. Are there any other contenders?”
No one stood up to Alex’s words, who acted as a referee and not a challenger.
Showing off his skills recognized even by the Crown Prince, Isaac held my hand tightly.
“Brother. Congratulations on winning. This is an award.”
“Thank you, Ciel.”
To celebrate the win, I accidentally offered a cookie to brother Isaac in front of Alex.
