161. Allen Cell and Political Marriage 
After finishing the soul dress class during the first and second period, I went to the student council room with Ria and Rose.
The purpose is, of course, to attend the first regular meeting of this year, the『lunch party』.
「It’s been a while since I’ve seen the president and senpais.」
「Yeah, I’m looking forward to it a little.」
「Fufu, that’s right.」
After walking for a little while having such conversation, we arrived at the student council room.
When I knocked on the door in front of me, feeling slightly nostalgic,
「Is it A-A-Allen-kun!?」
Lilim-senpai jumped out while foaming.
「Y-Yes… What’s the matter? Why are you so flustered, senpai?」
「D-D-D-Disaster! It’s a disaster!」
She gripped my shoulders tightly and shook me back and forth violently.
I don’t know what happened, but this is obviously not normal.
「Please calm down. Anyway, let’s go inside for now.」
The talk won’t advance if Lilim-senpai keeps shaking me as is.
I took her hand and entered the student council room for the time being.
In the room, Ferris-senpai was sitting on the sofa, looking all depressed.
(Judging by that depressed state of hers… It looks like some sort of『disaster』really is happening…)
After that, I had Lilim-senpai sit on the sofa, and then I resumed the story.
「So… What happened?」I asked.
「Sie… has left Thousand Blade Academy!」she said something ridiculous.
For a moment, I couldn’t understand what Lilim-senpai was saying.
「W-What do you mean…?」
Ria and Rose also seemed unable to hide their discomposure.
「In the morning homeroom, our homeroom teacher clearly said that… Sie Arcstria has left Thousand Blade Academy.」
Lilim-senpai spoke little by little with a look where she might burst out crying at any moment.
「The president is leaving the academy…? Is there some kind of mistake?」
When I asked her, she quietly shook her head.
「…Sie’s room is also completely empty. She’s already done with the procedure for leaving the dormitory.」
Heavy air permeated the student council room.
(The last time I saw the president was at the Keishinkai.)
At that time, she was very normal as usual.
(Which means,『something』happened during the past week between January 1st and January 7th.)
A『something』to the extent where the president had to leave Thousand Blade Academy.
「…For now, let’s go over and ask the details.」
「Ask…? To whom?」
「Leia-sensei of course.」
The director of Thousand Blade Academy, Leia Lasnode.
She must know something.
No, it would be more suspicious if she didn’t know.
「She must definitely know something. Let’s go!」
Then, I went to the director’s office with Ria, Rose, Lilim-senpai, and Ferris-senpai.
When we arrived in front of the director’s office, I quickly knocked on the black door three times.
Leia-sensei’s stiff voice replied, and we entered.
「…It’s you guys.」
At the back of the room, sensei who was sitting at her work desk, glanced at us and replied.
I asked on everyone’s behalf.
「Sensei. Is it true that the president has left Thousand Blade Academy?」
「…Aa, she went through the process of leaving the academy about two days ago.」
All of us were at a loss for words, in the face of that too cruel a reality.
Apparently… the president really seems to have left this academy.
Without saying goodbye to anyone, all on her own.
「W-Why? Please tell us the reason!」
「I just can’t believe that Sie would quit of her own volition at all, though!」
Lilim-senpai and Ferris-senpai questioned in a desperate manner.
This situation seems to be unbelievable because of their long relationship with the president.
(But… Ferris-senpai is right.)
The president always seemed to be cheery.
She used her position as『Student Council President』to fully enjoy student life more than anyone else.
I can’t believe she left this academy of her own volition.
「…Sorry, but due to my position I can’t talk about this matter.」
“My position”, that is, as one of the directors of the Five Academy, she can’t speak about it.
「So that means the government is involved in this matter, isn’t it?」
When I stepped in and asked,
Sensei averted her gaze and fell silent.
Silence, it was the most eloquent『answer』.
It seems that the president was forced to leave Thousand Blade Academy because of the circumstances of the Ringard Imperial Kingdom.
「…I’m sorry. I can’t get involved in this case.」sensei said, and walked towards the exit brushing past us.
「W-Where are you going?」
「Leia, don’t run away!」
When I and Ria flared up at her,
「…Oh, my! The『important document』that was entrusted by Tenshi-sama is missing? This is a problem. If that leaks out, she will have my head. Can’t be helped, I guess… I’ll eat lunch slowly and then search on my『work desk.』」sensei said so unnaturally, and left her office.
