As usual, I watched over the young prince... no... the young king as he pored over maps and scrolls with the two court magicians. While the king places his trust in them to a certain degree, I do not. Why would two powerful magicians such as them want to aid Hyoutei? I am sure they will want something in exchange when the right time comes.
Pondering over this question, I was reminded of my childhood... Eversince I was a youth, my father has instructed me to protect the heir to the throne, no matter what the cost or consequences are. I have watched him since then, as seasons passed. He has grown up to be a fine young man, perhaps a little too arrogant and vain, but I can live with that.
From the corner of my eyes, I could see Atobe-sama gesticulating as the three of them immerse themselves over a map that currently lay open across the mahogany table, if I am not wrong; it is a map of the border between Hyoutei and Seigaku.
Their initial plans were deceptively simple but Seigaku fell for it, hook, line and sinker. A trap was set up as soldiers were sent to attack Seigaku's borders and the bait was taken as they sent a messenger to Hyoutei. It was the opportunity that they have been waiting for. The spell was cast and turned every soldier in Seigaku into animals. Even with the curse, they did not give in and continued to fight on. I must give them credit for their stubborness. It seems that I will need to keep an eye out for intruders of all forms and species for the next few months.
