The Tale of Hero Alice's Social Death (Pantsu Hero Alice) Chapter 313 - Awkward Miscommunication.

"Alright. I'll be waiting for your good news, then."

After a short discussion, it was agreed that Alice would head to the Rhine Kingdom to deal with the matter regarding the Demon King. Then, Haydn ended the call in satisfaction.

Meanwhile, Alice sighed in relief when the call ended since the worst-case scenario did not happen. Out of the various scenarios she thought of, the worst would be if Haydn suggested receiving her in person and insisting on joining her in search of the Demon King. She would definitely have her work cut out if that happened.

Fortunately, it would seem that Haydn cherished his life quite well. After all, he looked like he still had many years left to live. Moreover, unlike Hatter, Haydn wasn't without a family. In such a situation, it was only natural that he wouldn't wish to get involved in a fight between the Hero and the Demon King. Although Haydn possessed a certain degree of combat capabilities, he'd still be blown into smithereens if he got caught up in an exchange of taboos.

Haydn had also agreed to Alice's request to secretly enter the Rhine Kingdom and investigate the Demon King. After all, it would be in his favor if Alice could chase the Demon King out of the Rhine Kingdom without startling his people.

This, in turn, meant that Alice wouldn't have to call Luna to come over to put on an act with her. All she needed to do was find some deserted place to launch a few light- and dark-attributed taboos, creating the false image of a battle taking place between the Hero and the Demon King. Then, she would tell Haydn that she had chased the Demon King away and call it a day.

But I should still be more careful. I've taken things for granted too much before and never considered other possibilities after coming up with a plan… I can't continue acting this way in the future.

Alice sighed after putting her phone away. Although she had managed to cover things up this time, it was best if she didn't make any more of such mistakes in the future. Had she been a little more careful this time and verified Magic Tower Know-It-All's identity before contacting the other party, she would have never needed to go through all this trouble.

In fact, she could have easily accomplished this by spreading her psychic power into Magic Tower Know-It-All's room and checking if he had any demonic organs hidden on his body. Although the demons possessed various means to hide their unique organs, Alice could easily bypass these camouflages with Psychokinesis Transcendence.

It's also fortunate their fear of the Demon King is preventing them from taking any aggressive actions. This means that I won't have to worry about my actions in the tower getting exposed.

After checking the corridor's situation with her mana and verifying that nobody was outside, Alice walked out of the research room.

Although security in the tower will probably increase during this period, it's unlikely they'll suspect me since I don't have any dark mana. Even if they do suspect me, they won't find anything.

God might have created Alice's body, but Alice's magic affinity was the same as an ordinary person's. She had no particular affinities, and her light and dark mana came entirely from panties. So, even if others suspected her and tried to probe her mana, they wouldn't find any dark mana in her body.

On the contrary, if the authorities were to secretly inspect Alice's mana, it would absolve Alice of any suspicion.

Anyway, Alice could now rule out the possibility of Magic Tower Know-It-All being the demon spy. After all, if the other party was a demon, it was highly unlikely that he would leak the Demon King's information to the Rhine Kingdom's authorities. Unless, of course, the demon spy was a turncoat.

It seems I'm going to have to give Frosette a call.

Whether the demon spy was a turncoat or someone else, Alice could easily verify this by contacting Frosette. As someone who was also a demon spy, Frosette should know the identity of the demon spy operating in the Royal Magic Tower.

Alice had Frosette's contact information. After returning to the Royal Magic Tower's library and finding herself a seat, Alice pulled out her phone and sent Frosette a message.

The reason Alice had visited the library was because many students were fiddling with their phones or laptops here. Since most, if not all, of these students, were using the internet with their mobile devices, the library was a mess of mana fluctuations. If she used her phone here, she could minimize the risk of the authorities taking notice of her. Although it was unlikely someone would suspect her even if she used her phone in a deserted location, it wouldn't hurt to be careful.

"Frosette, you should have information on the Royal Magic Tower's spy, right? Can you send it to me? I need it."

Frosette had most likely set Alice's number as a priority because it didn't take more than a minute before Alice received a reply from Frosette:

"Are you currently in the Royal Magic Tower, Lord Demon King? That place has strict security, so sneaking should have been quite difficult. As expected of you, Lord Demon King. I noticed you had applied for leave a few days ago, so I was wondering where you were going. I didn't think you would head to the Rhine Kingdom."

Frosette's message conveyed a clear sense of excitement and enthusiasm. However, Alice didn't mind it. After making small talk with Frosette, Alice quickly received the information she wanted.

Mador… A female spy, huh… Oh? A psychic magician? How interesting. Alice read the information she received, her interest slightly piqued. Then, after reading the general information on the female demon named Mador, Alice looked at the picture of Mador that Frosette had sent.

Um……?

When Alice saw Mador's picture, a strange expression appeared on her face. However, this wasn't because Mador looked ugly or unique. Instead, it was because she knew this face.

After all, the girl in the picture was none other than the female student Alice had previously manipulated to become her messenger.

Novel Notes

Made a change to Chapter 262:

Original:
Several thousand years ago, the psychokinetic and spirit attributes had yet to be separated. So, the first comment should be referring to using psychokinetic-attributed mana to cast this taboo.

Edited:
Several thousand years ago, the mind and spirit attributes had yet to be separated. So, the first comment should be referring to using mind-attributed mana to cast this taboo.
