"Can you tell me your name?"
Different from the voice I usually hear from afar, it's sweet.
I could feel the heat in the prince’s eyes that stared at me as he.smiled.
―――I want to run away.
I want to run away from the prince from the bottom of my heart.
"Subaru, you're troubling her."
Hasumi quickly stepped in front of me as if to hide me.
Hiding completely behind his back, I breathed out a sigh of relief.
"Won't you introduce her to me? Aah, right, I still haven't introduced myself. I am Tojo Subaru."
"......I know. Tojo-sama is a famous person."
Having regained a bit of calm thanks to hiding behind Hasumi, I come forth and gave an ojou-sama like smile next to Hasumi.
"Nice to meet you, Tojo-sama. My name is Kaguragi Rinka. It seems like my little brother has been in your care, right?"
'Thank you for always caring for my little brother,' I said and bowed my head.
The prince looked at me as if he was happy.
"That's because Yuto is extraordinary. I think that my care is not needed, but I always end up unintentionally wanting to do it."
"Fufu, my little brother feels grateful to you, you know?"
"Really? That makes me happy."
My improvised ojou-sama mask is going to come off soon.
I tried to convey it to Hasumi who stood next to me.
I am a bit anxious that it didn't reach him, but I'm sure that, if it's Hasumi, he'll surely get it. No, I mean, I'll be troubled if he doesn't.

Isn't this my chance to escape from here?
Well, if I don't escape now, I won't be able to get away until lunch break is over, right?
Okay, let's escape.
My lips floated with the archaic smile I inherited from my father.
"Since I shouldn't interrupt you two, I'll excuse myself now."
When I was saying "gokigen'yo" and trying to quickly leave that place, my arm was seized by the prince.
"Is there something?"
Without destroying my archaic smile, I looked at the prince.
This is tiring you know. Let me go back quickly please.
"I would like to get to know you better. Can we talk again another time?"
With only those words from the prince, my smiling face twitched.
I never thought I'd hear such lines in real life……!
However, I am an ojou-sama.
Making use of the skill of an ojou-sama I had cultivated till now, I was somehow able to maintain my smile and force out words that my mind truly abhorred.
".......if you are fine with me, I'll be happy to comply."
The prince laughed looking satisfied at my response.
