Still no trace of Pepper?
Saffron
Not yet.
She'd better hurry, or she'll miss Shichimi's speech.
Shichimi
Thank you.
I'd like to...

Hibiscus
Is she one of your guests?
Shichimi
Yes. She is my friend Pepper. Everything is fine.
Pepper
Carrot, are you OK? Sorry about the landing, I haven’t mastered it yet while using hyperspeed.
And again sorry to everyone for the trouble, and as for how I’m dressed...
Shichimi
tee hee
Wasabi
Shichimi, this young witch who has arrived, is she really a friend of yours?
page 4
Shichimi
Yes, your highness. Her name is Pepper, of the School of Chaosah.
Wasabi
Her presence here pollutes the sacred nature of our school. Get her out of my sight, immediately.
Shichimi
But... Master Wasabi...
Wasabi
But what ? Would you prefer to be banished from our school?
Shichimi

Shichimi
Sorry Pepper, but you need to leave. Now.
Pepper
Huh? Hey hey hey, wait a minute! I'm sure there's a misunderstanding.
Shichimi
Please Pepper, don't make this difficult.
Pepper
Hey! You there, on the throne. If you have a problem with me, come down and tell me yourself!
Wasabi

CURSUS CANCELLARE MAXIMUS!!!
Sound
SHKLAK!
Pepper
Ouch!
Sound
PAF!!
Shichimi
Even your best cancellation spell has no effect on me! Give up, Pepper, and go away! Stop making me hurt you!
Pepper
Oh, my cancellation spell worked just fine, but you weren't the target.
Shichimi
Huh? What do you mean?!
page 8
Shichimi
?!!
Pepper
She was the target! I just canceled her Glamour Spell which keeps her looking young.
I noticed this spell as soon as I got here. So, I gave you a small token of what you deserve for making Shichimi fight me!
Wasabi
INSOLENCE! How dare you, and in front of my whole school!
Pepper
Consider yourself lucky! If I had all of my Rea, I wouldn't have stopped there.

Sound
DRZOW!!
Wasabi
I see. You have reached the level of your predecessors much sooner than I anticipated... This accelerates my plans, but that is good news.
Pepper
Your plans? So you were just testing me, and this had nothing to do with my being late? You really are twisted!
Wasabi
tee... hee.
WHAT ARE YOU ALL STARING AT?! I WAS JUST ATTACKED, AND YOU DO NOTHING BUT STAND THERE?! GET HER!!!
I WANT HER ALIVE!
GET HER!!!
Pepper
Shichimi, we'll have to talk about this later!
I’m sorry, Carrot, but we'll have to take off at hyperspeed again. Hold on tight!
