Chapter Forty-One: The Heroine of a Fool (Part IV)
…Uh, why do I have to be ambushed by a pervert in the morning? God, did I commit such a sin in my previous life? (Don’t tell me it was the sin of laziness…)
Oh, please help me! She’s looking at me from top to bottom, and the way her eyes trailed felt as if she were licking me! Someone, anyone, please come to the girls’ dormitory right now!
“…I just warned you yesterday, but it hasn’t been fixed at all.”
With a sigh, Himeno-chan took a brush and a comb out of her bag, not a whip.
“Come here! I’ll fix your hair for you”.
“The Empress can’t come to the school like this… not at all.”
Himeno-chan’s quick but polite hands straightened the tangles without giving me any pain at all.
“I wonder why your hair looks like this… Your ribbon too! It’s crooked, or rather, it’s a vertical knot! Even your shoes are dirty, too.”
“…Can you fix it? Thank you… Why are you trying to put me in red pin heels?”
“That… I was going to make you step on me instead of just thanking me.”
“Don’t casually come at me with your perversions!”
Himeno Saiki… What a scary girl…!
…But the neat and tidy hands that adjusted my appearance were very polite. Though I’m not still supposed to be unsure about this girl, right?
“…Okay, that will pass. Then, it’s time to go.”
“What? Where are you going?”
“It’s been decided that we’ll be going to school… If you don’t go early, you’ll be late.”
…I don’t know what she meant, but it’s been decided that we’ll go to school together. Huh?
I’m not sure, but let’s open our doubts from yesterday since it’s a good opportunity.
“…Himeno-chan. Himeno-chan is also a reincarnate, right?”
“Reincarnate? …Oh, I have memories of my previous life. That’s right. That’s why I didn’t come to this school immediately.”
“Somehow… It doesn’t look like you were the girl gamer type, so how do you know what the game is about?”
Honestly, I couldn’t help asking because it was strangely unavoidable.
Himeno-chan is a pervert, but she doesn’t smell like an otaku. Rather than playing otome games, it feels like she would be more interested in adult 3D.
She’s from a race I’ve never met before… I mean, if I lived normally, I wouldn’t have met her either. That’s natural.
“That’s right! If you search for ‘Queen’, ‘Dog’, or ‘SM’ the game always appears in the search results, it’s obvious how it caught my attention.”
…And, of course, Himeno-chan was Himeno-chan! Well, I won’t stick to asking what she was initially searching for.
“Until then, I wasn’t interested in 2D, but when I saw the illustration of the Empress that came from the game, I was startled… This person was the Ideal Queen I was looking for! I just bought it on impulse online. I played it repeatedly in search of the punishment ending.”
“…Well, didn’t you fall for another capture target? There were a lot of handsome people.”
“It’s impossible… Or rather, I’ve never tried another character’s route.”
“How could I choose to expel the Empress? I’ve seen other bad endings, but I’m not interested in any of the happy ones.”
…She completely denied the significance of the existence of otome games!
Wait, so many things are flying so fast that I can’t catch up with the plunge…!
“Unfortunately, the actual Empress is quite different from the game… Well, that’s okay. I didn’t really play otome games, but I enjoyed the training aspect of it in my own way. The more difficult they are, the more I trained them. Isn’t that right?”
…Don’t do that. Stop licking your lips. Please don’t do that. Your eyes are so scary. I’m having chills.
I mean, if you’re going to train someone anyway, you’re going to have to get a dog…
“…Hi, Himeno-chan! By any chance…”
Just when I was about to mention him, Keisei Takemiya himself came about.
With his tail wagging between his legs.
“Shall we go to school together?”
“…Why do you come from the boys’ dormitory in the opposite direction every morning? I’m tired of getting into it. I’m busy raising a queen, so I don’t have time to worry about you.”
It seems that Keisei Takemiya finally noticed me… His eyes only see Himeno-chan.
“–Ah, Empress… Why!”
“That’s because she’s the ideal person I’ve been looking for. If you understand, then please go away.”
…Wow, Hime-chan, you’re cold towards Takemiya. You’re even waving your hand as if you’re driving an actual dog away.
And Takemiya… I can see his imaginary ears slowly going down. I feel like I’ll be able to hear a sad whining sound at any moment.
“I won’t give up!”
Takemiya dashes away… Hey, that’s the opposite direction of the school. Where are you going?
And Takemiya… He would be full-on crying right now if I hadn’t seen it wrong. Huh.
“…He’s a man, and I’m not interested in dog attributes at all, so please give up quickly. He’s so persistent.”
“Hi, Himeno-chan, aren’t you too cold towards Takemiya? I feel sorry seeing him cry.”
“Not at all. Since the first day of my transfer, I’ve been chased around even though I don’t remember saving him from being bullied a long time ago. I only remember being jealous of someone that was being bullied at the time, and I just wanted to be the one being bullied instead. No matter how much I explained, that dog wouldn’t listen at all.”
…Uh-huh. So that’s the reason you protected him from getting bullied… you’re a much more pleasant and perverted Do-Me than I thought!
Or rather, no matter how perverted or how cold you were, Takemiya, who kept wagging his tail, is also amazing… He was basically licking for your love.
