In one of Saint Freya Academy’s meeting rooms, a pink-haired woman showed her little notebook to an armored figure, raising her doubts. William answered her question with a masculine voice altered by her armor.
“It’s not my will. It was Lord Antonio’s request.”
William replied with a sigh before proceeding to share the conversation she had with Antonio.
As the first one to arrive at Saint Freya Academy, William paid Principal Antonio a visit last night in hopes of securing his support.
