My reasons for rejecting Fron’s offer to join my team were quite valid.


My concern was whether I could control her.


Fron's behavior up to this point had been based on strong self-assertion and high self-esteem.


Decisively, she possessed arrogance that considered everyone beneath her.


'It's no different from having the worst personality as a teammate.'


Of course, it wouldn't be bad to build a close friendship with a student with potential.


Even more so if it was a student as outstanding as Fron in terms of family or ability.


But the type of teammate I needed right now was a 'controllable' figure who would follow orders thoroughly.


Because I needed to get good grades in the practical exam or midterm.


‘They gave us artifacts as rewards for the entrance exam.’


That was just a simple reward for the entrance exam.


Then how great a reward would I get if I got good grades on a test like the midterm?


'This was also a reward for the entrance exam.'


I fumbled with the necklace.


A precious item suspected to be connected to the Demon King.


I was able to receive such an extraordinary item simply as a reward for excellent grades.


In addition, the artifacts taken by the other children of the Seven Deadly Sins were also excellent enough to appear in the original.


So I had no choice but to expect it.


But Fron didn't understand my calculations at all.


Fron shouted, her face flushed red with shame when her offer was rejected.


"What is the reason!?"


"I don't think Miss Fron will listen to my opinion. I only want controllable personnel."


I explained the reason, leaving out the story about the artifact.


There was no reason to provoke the rivalry of others, and it seemed like my image would be seen as vulgar.


However, it seemed to be insufficient to persuade Fron.


"Of course, it's normal for you to listen to this lady's orders!"


"Of course it's not normal."


I cut off Fron's words.


If she had really been able to fulfill her role as a truly capable commander.


She wouldn't have lost her life to the protagonist's party in the original.


As the mastermind who had drawn the scene of Fron's death, it was natural for me to find Fron unattractive.


Even if she were a capable commander, it was a set future that she would be defeated by the protagonist's party and annihilated.


However, it would be a waste to let go of this opportunity to recruit Fron.


That’s why.


“If you are willing to ‘listen’ to my opinion, I will gladly accept that offer, but it seems that you have no intention of doing so, Miss Fron.”


I tried to provoke Fron.


“Hmph…!”


Did it work?


Her blue hair rustled slightly as her body trembled.


Fron, who had been grumbling about my words for a long time, continued speaking.


“…I don’t mind listening to your opinion. But I will never listen to your orders!”


“Isn’t that obvious?”


“What are you talking about?”


Fron frowned and asked me back as I shook my head as if I was being sincere.


Now that I’ve given her the whip, it’s time to give her the carrot.


I carefully chose the words that would make Fron’s mouth water.


“The leader of our party will be Miss Fron, so shouldn’t you be the one giving orders?”


“!”


“Of course, I will only assist you from the side.”


“!!”


Fron’s eyes grew even wider.


She seemed to be completely unaware that I was sweet-talking her to deceive her.


But I didn’t stop talking.


“In fact, wasn’t it the instructor’s arbitrary decision that made me the class president?”


I whispered softly in Fron’s ear.


“From the beginning, I didn’t think the instructor in charge had a very good eye for talent. Don’t you agree? Of course, it should have been Miss Fron who became the class president.”


“Hoo, hoohoo.”


Fron tried to control her expression as if she was trying to maintain her composure.


But the smirk that was forming on her lips was impossible to erase.


“Your words are reasonable!”


“Oh, please.”


I smiled as I stared at her, who was becoming arrogant because of my flattery.


With this, it’s all over.


“I shall graciously join your team. Consider it an honor, half-breed.”


“Oh my, what an honor for my family.”


And so, Fron and I burst into laughter and shook hands.


Perhaps Fron thought she was above me.


But the winner of this fight was me.


‘A fool, that’s what she is.’


I showed her an evil smile.


And Luna was watching that sight with trembling eyes.


“Why are you acting so creepily in front of me…?”


I thought I heard something strange, but I simply ignored it.


* * *


Several days passed.


My daily routine hadn’t changed much since Fron, Luna, and I formed our party.


After class, I would practice briefly with Rene, and in the dorms, I would review what I had learned in class.


I was a little nervous that I might clash with Samuel again during this process.


But unexpectedly, Samuel didn’t try to pick a fight with me like before.


‘Did he have a change of heart?’


I was curious, but I didn’t ask.


Because just reviewing the Mana Method kept me plenty busy.

“Whew.”


My total mana had increased by an absurdly small amount compared to before.


Of course, mana was something I could address by consuming an elixir at some point, so I didn’t need to worry too much about it.


But it was a little disappointing.


‘The problem is the stuff I learned in class.’


Especially magic class.


I had attended two more magic classes since the first one.


But I still couldn’t get a feel for the chaos attribute.


‘I hope I can figure out the true nature of the chaos attribute today.’


Magic classes were only held twice a week.


If I couldn’t get a feel for the chaos attribute today, I would have to wait another week.


I arrived at the classroom with a heavy heart.
