At the front of the classroom, Chris stared at the chasm of awkwardness that stood between the two of them at a loss.
This shouldn’t be. Roel has joined the academy not too long ago, and he shouldn’t have met Lilian over the past week. Why does the atmosphere between the two of them feel so cold, as if they have a grudge against one another?
Unaware of the short confrontation between her two students prior to the entrance ceremony, the crimson-haired teacher was utterly bewildered. However, there was someone who was even more bewildered than her in the classroom, and that was Roel.
There was only one question lingering in his mind at the very moment.
R*ddit: How do I interact with a woman whom my ancestor has tasked me to knock up? Need urgent answers right away!!!
Roel felt his mind slowly turning numb. Had this been before his encounter with Ro in the dungeon, he would have simply maintained a polite distance between the two of them, but now…
Just looking at Lilian’s face would make him uncontrollably recall the mission Ro had entrusted to him with a pat on the shoulder!
It was already bad enough to knock up an unmarried woman, but he even had to do it behind the back of her family members. This was such a scummy move that Roel felt conscience-stricken just thinking about it. He felt like he had lost the moral high ground here, which resulted in the weakening of his airs as well.
He hadn’t tried gathering information about Chris’ students as he was preoccupied trying to hide from far too many people hounding him down, and he had already made up his mind about choosing Chris as his academic advisor. As a result, he was completely caught off-guard by the turn of events.
It was out of awkwardness from his ancestor’s instruction that Roel had fallen silent, but Lilian’s silence stemmed from her deep contemplation.
Was it deliberate?
Her stoic face concealed her thoughts, but her eyes were slowly growing sharper.
As the princess of the Austine Empire, Lilian was renowned enough to be dubbed as the representative of ‘Chris’ Classroom’. There was no way Roel could have not known that she was Chris’ student.
But the reaction he gave when he entered the classroom…
Lilian recalled the dumbfounded look on Roel’s face upon catching sight of her and shook her head. She was fairly certain that his reaction was authentic, and that he wasn’t putting on act here.
Is it a coincidence? If that’s the case… this might be a good thing.
Of the three new Ringbearers, the Theocracy’s princess and the daughter of Rosa’s chief administrator were likely to bear hostility toward her, an imperial princess of the Austine Empire. Thus, it would be best for them to shun one another outside of the Rose Council so as to avoid conflict.
However, the same couldn’t be said about Roel.
