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?.
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: Tsss.... Shichimi, you have ten seconds... nine... eight... seven.... Shichimi: ENOUGH, PEPPER!

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?!. Sound: Pshh... Pshh....
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!.
