|It Sets My Hunter's Blood Afire|
|Hmm hmm~ ♪|
|Pomefiore Student A||Oya? What are you doing standing there hidden behind the shadows of that pillar, Vice Leader Hunt?|
|Oh, good morning! Such fine weather today, don't you think? There's not a cloud in the sky. I figured it would be perfect for observing him.|
|Pomefiore Student A||Him? But there's nobody here but the two of us.|
|Him, you see. If you look just over there...|
|Pomefiore Student A||Ah! That speck of someone over in the corner of the courtyard. Not only are your eyes a beautiful almond shape, but you have extraordinary vision!|
|Ah, Roi des Lions... A striking presence truly befitting the king of all beasts.
See how widely he yawns. Just as you'd expect of a carnivore, his perfectly formed canines are fully exposed.
|Pomefiore Student A||To yawn so openly like that in front of others, he must be quite the savage. You shouldn't get too close to Kingscholar.|
|But why not? It's so rare I get the chance to meet such a strong, noble specimen of prey.
Those sharp, keen fangs... The way they would sink into your throat and render you unable to move makes my heart tremble.
Oya..? And who is that approaching Leona-kun from the other direction?
|Umm... wasn't that pronunciation list on page 83...|
|Pomefiore Student A||That's Epel, a first year from our dorm... It's not safe for him to walk with his nose stuck in his book like that...|
|Fumu. From the content of it, it appears to be a linguistics book. How fine of him to be keeping up with his studies.|
|Pomefiore Student A||You can see the inside of it from here? I was barely able to make Epel out just now...|
|Fufu... The sleeping lion and the fresh fruit... Let's see where this leads...|
|Pomefiore Student A||Oh no, it seems Epel bumped into Kingscholar...! I-If we don't go and help him Kingscholar might try to pick a fight with him!|
|Nothing of the sort. He's not the sort of lion that would snap at a little kitten.|
|I'm terribly sorry...|
|It was nothing to worry about, you see. He has the regal composure of a king.
Roi du Léon... magnificent indeed. He makes for the perfect prey to hunt.
|Pomefiore Student A||I-I see...|
|Leona-san. I jus' randomly grabbed some stuff for ya from the buffet, but this'll do yeah?|
|Here ya go. Make sure ya eat all of it.|
|...What the hell is this?|
|Jus' a buncha veggies I put on your plate. S'all food so no complainin' jus' eat it.
An' look, made sure I got some of your favorite meat, too.
|Ah, Roi des Lions... And Monsieur Dandelion.|
|Argh, it's him!|
|Looks like the pest is back... Whaddya want, Rook.
You keep snoopin' around me lately...
|Fufu, don't be so cold. After all, we're classmates aren't we.
Roi des Lions... Leona-kun. Mind if I join you? If you'll just excuse me...
|Hey- Don't go sittin' down before waitin' for a reply.|
|Quit hollerin', Ruggie. It's useless to try an' get through to him.|
|Actually, I just came to confirm a rumor I heard about you.|
|Huh? A rumor...?|
|Oui. One that you don't like vegetables. Fufu, it seems you really are a carnivore.|
|...And just who told you that?|
|Your friend there next to you.|
|Ah! Why'd you go and out me like that!|
|Ruggie, why you little...|
|But Rook had my tail y'see and...
Er... He kept harassin' me about tellin' him some secret about you and wouldn't back off until I gave him somethin'.
|...Whatever then. So I hate vegetables- what about it, Rook?|
|I just wanted to confirm it for myself. Nothing more, at least for now.
I'm glad I caught a glimpse of you eating. Besides sleeping, it's the only time living creatures let their guard down.
|Ruggie, it's time to find another table...|
|How the hell am I supposed to have a meal with this guy beside me starin' the whole time. Even ruins the taste of the stuff that ain't vegetables.|
|In that case you'll have to forgive me for being rude. Eating is one of life's greatest pleasures, after all.
How about next time we combine the tables for dinner? Then I can see you clearly while we're sitting face to face.
|...'ch. We're leaving Ruggie.|
|Aah, wait up for me Leona!|
|...Fufu. Even the way he whips his tail back and forth in displeasure has its charm.
Naturally the more formidable the prey, the more I wish to give chase to it. Such is the nature of a hunter.
|...Oya? He should be taking this elective as well but... I don't see him anywhere.|
|Rook, what do you keep looking around the room for? You're unusually restless today.|
|Ah, I can't seem to find Roi des Lions. I could have sworn he was here when we left the classroom but...|
|Well, it's Leona so he's probably cutting class again.
I've never seen him do a proper experiment before.
|Is that so... How unfortunate.
I wanted to see how he'd look holding a flask and beaker instead of a fork and a knife.
|I have no idea what you're going on about but... I see you're still meddling with the other dorms.|
|"Meddling" sounds a little harsh. I'd prefer you called it doing fieldwork.|
|Either way it's the same thing. It doesn't change that it's in poor taste.|
|Oya! Could it be that you're jealous, Roi du Poison?
Naturally you're the most beautiful in this entire school. You have nothing to fear.
|Even if you're joking, cut it out. I'm not the least bit amused.|
|And just as sharp as ever. Even so, I could watch Leona-kun all day and never tire of it.
Especially on a fine day like this, seeing him outside makes me remember the vast savanna where I'm from.
|What is it? Is there something out there?|
|Speaking of Roi des Lions, there he is, dozing in the shade underneath a tree by the sports field.|
|Ara, is that so. It's too far away for me to make him out but you can see him just fine, can't you.|
|Oui. It's because my eyesight has always been excellent, if I do say so myself.|
|Fufu... He really does look like a lion sprawled about on the savanna.|
|I don't get what you enjoy out of looking at a man with nothing going for him but his looks. Knock it off and get back to the experiment.|
|Roi des Lions, king of the savanna.
Despite his defenseless he appearance, his ears remain alert. Proof that he's still aware of his surroundings.
However, his position puts him in somewhat of a disadvantage. If a hunter were to ambush him, it would only delay his initial means of escape.
How unfortunate not to have my bow and arrow on me right now.
|Oya, he seems to have spotted me. As to be expected, his natural instincts appear to be sharp indeed.
...Ah, there he goes. Fufu, I'll leave things here for now.
|Rook, I don't see your hands moving. We're in the middle of an experiment.|
|Ah, I should focus on the lesson at hand. Seeing as even a napping lion made me out.|
|Sigh... You're my vice so I'll only give you this warning.
While Leona may slack off and have nothing going for him but his looks... If you anger him you'll only be making trouble.
I wouldn't get too involved with him.
|Are you ordering me not to, as leader to vice leader?|
|Take it that way if you want. I'd prefer to avoid any unnecessary conflict with the other dormitories.
I don't remember appointing some halfwit that gets his kicks messing around with a pack of wild beasts as my vice.
|Of course not. I wouldn't do anything to disappoint you.
But seeing him sets my hunter's blood afire.
I just want to see for myself how, even if normally at ease, a hunted animal bares their fangs when they feel threatened. I wonder if perhaps I'll ever have the opportunity...
|Haa... You mean see if he's just as much of an untamed beast on the inside as he is relaxed on the outside?
In that case, why don't you join the magishift club?
Since Leona is captain you'd be able to have a go at him as many times as you'd like.
|That idea sounds very appealing, however...
If I were to join the magishift club I wouldn't be able to assist you with your movie appreciation club, so that would be impossible I'm afraid.
|Ara. What an admirable thing to say all of a sudden.|
|It's true. I've told you why I joined the science club, haven't I?
It's to support creating the visual beauty you desire with smoke, dyes, and so on.
Right now there's nothing more important to me than supporting beauty with all of my love.
|And certainly there is no one at this school more beautiful than I am. Being vice offers you the best seat when it comes to your life's work.
So you'd better stay on your best behavior to make sure you don't lose it.
If you cause me any senseless problems I'll replace you in a heartbeat.
|I'll do my best to keep that from happening.
I'm more fond of this so-called vice position than anything else.
After all, it allows me the closest position to gaze upon the fairest one in this entire school.
|Is that so. Then no more chit chat- start taking this experiment seriously.
I won't allow the vice leader of Pomefiore's grades to slip.
