y, and 「I’m sorry!」 then leaves the guild in a dash.

「I was fine.」
「I know full well that it wasn’t a problem for you.
Looking at your barrier, it’s easy to guess that you’re a B-rank hunter.」

It seems like this lady isn’t underestimating Ciel from her appearance.
Well, she has properly gauged the strength of the spherical barrier I’ve consciously put up, so I guess it’s just natural.
Still, I wonder why she’s confident that Ciel is B-rank?

I noticed her presence through detection, but it didn’t seem like she overheard Ciel and Celia-san’s conversation.
In other words, all she could do was guess Ciel’s rank from my barrier.
However, people don’t normally use their full strength in these sorts of situations.

Because of that, I should be seen as at least, at minimum, or more than B-rank.
Or at least, that’s what I think.

「So you’re the record breaker for the youngest to reach B-rank Viviana was talking about?」

I see, she’s related to Viviana-san, huh.
Viviana-san does know that Ciel became B-rank and if we’re talking about B-rank hunters of Ciel’s age, Ciel’s likely to be the only one.
And she wouldn’t have expected Ciel to be A-rank so soon.

「You’re, Viviana’s acquaintance?」
「Ah! I haven’t introduced myself yet, haven’t I?」

For some reason, this person is really dramatic.
Is she the type that isn’t satisfied unless she stands out?
Her movements are noble-ish, or rather…… like, she gives the impression of a high-handed daughter of a noble all grown up.
And for the 「Scorching Hot Princess」 I hear from the surroundings, that’s probably her nickname.

Speaking of nicknames, I remember Carol-san had 「Ice Witch」 but if I’m not misremembering, Carol-san didn’t really like it.
It looks like it’s the opposite for her, she seems to enjoy being called by her nickname.
Ice and scorching heat are extreme opposites and, from their personalities, they probably wouldn’t get along too well.

Still, I missed the chance to return Ciel’s body.

「I am Friere Iazick.
A B-rank hunter called by others as the Scorching Hot Princess.
My relationship with Viviana, correct? I am her mentor!」

Resting her palm on her chest, the Scorching Hot Princess Friere-san introduced herself.
With her outfit, she really stands out.
She said that she’s Viviana-san’s mentor but I’m honestly amazed that she went to study under this person.
Or maybe Friere-san is simply an excellent teacher?

「I’m Cielmer.」
「Cielmer, is it? I no longer care about the small fry from earlier, can I ask you of a request?」
「Could you have a mock battle with me?」

『So she says, what should we do?』
『I don’t mind either way.
If I would act like a mirror, then does that mean I can accept it?』
『In this case, she doesn’t quite have good will nor ill intent…… I would say it’s more curiosity?
Ciel, are you curious about her?』
『If I have to be honest, not really.
But so I get interested in people, maybe it’s better to accept.
What do you think, Ain?』
『Then I guess we should accept it.
If you still aren’t interested afterwards, let’s take that result as a learning experience regardless.』
『Okay, understood,』

With the discussion settled 「The conditions?」 I urged her to continue.

「Thank you for accepting.
First of all, the reward.
How about 50 gold coins, regardless of the outcome?」
「For a B-rank request, too much.」
But I consider the experience to be worth this price.
The battle rules will be that of the usual hunter rules.
No killing allowed and try to keep large injuries to the minimum.
The opponent’s surrender or incapacity to continue, and/or the landing of a solid blow will determine the victor.
How about that?」
The witness?」
「Celia, I’d like to ask this of you.」

Friera-san requested for Celia-san, but she only replied with a troubled look.
I’m sure Celia-san has her own work to do and doesn’t she need someone to formally process this request too?
As expected, she has the uninhibited boldness of a noble daughter.
「I’ll do it.」 Suddenly, I heard a sigh-mixed reply coming from behind.

Seeing who it was, Friere-san glared sharply at her.

「What are you here for, Ice?」
「I have business with that girl.
Been a while, hasn’t it? Cielmer.」
「Carol, long time.」

Since she talked to me, I curtly replied.
As expected, Carol-san was surprised as well, but she immediately showed a smile.

「I’ll have a long, thorough conversation with you later.
For now, I’d be refreshing if you beat up the red one there for me.」
「Are you selling me a fight? I’m not buying it.」
「Yeah, yeah.
You’re fighting with that girl, right? It’s a great opportunity, so go ahead and suffer a complete utter loss.」
「Since you’re saying that much, then I’ll show you a decisive victory.
Don’t come crying later!」

Right after Friere-san declared so, she turned to me 「That being the case, if you want to blame anyone, blame it on Ice over there.」 and said so.


Hiya~! We’re back at the guild again and, as it is usually, there’s someone picking a fight… but unlike the usual, we’ve got someone who is giving due credit and respect to our princesses!

Also, first of all: the pronunciation of Friere’s name.
Ff-rii-rEH (e)Ya-zii-Kh.
The (e) isn’t that emphasized.
Also, as you can tell, I don’t know the phonetic thingamajigs that much, ehe.

After several tens of chapters, we finally got to meet Celia and Carol again~! Hooray! But in Celia’s case, it seems like Ciel’s silent demeanor in contrast with Ain’s usual tone is confusing, and worrying , her a bit.
Understandable, hearing everything that happened on the way to Central.
Our girls had a really hard time, and all the mess some of the guild people have started with them did the opposite of helping.
She really cared for them, or just Ain acting on behalf of Ciel, back then and is obviously emotionally invested on their troubles.
Which isn’t really good for a receptionist of people in a deadly line of work, but I digress.
Carol, on the other hand, is pretty giddy to hear whatever explanation Ain has for her, since she was hinted about the possibility of two souls, and this extreme change in tone basically proves it’s validity, although it actually is just Ain copying Ciel.

(Say no to content thief!)

Now, to our new character.
She’s a nice breath of fresh air compared to the other challengers in the past.
This time, it’s not a fight to simply beat down an opponent or to settle an argument, it’s (hopefully) a learning experience for both sides (just like with Carol’s, now that I think about it).
And Friere’s actually making this an official request for them.
And, most important of all, it’s not from someone hostile.
We had a hostile upstart in the first half, but our scorching hot lady over here shooed him before he could make a fatal mistake.
Now, this isn’t actually our first time meeting her, she first appeared unnamed, only called “teacher” by Viviana.
Nicknamed Scorching Hot Princess for her flamboyant and dramatic demeanor, she’s also hot in a figurative sense, lol.
It’ll be fun to see how their fight goes.
