Even though the first season of the game had just concluded, what was the helper character doing here?
…Not to mention, it’s the one that offered me no help whatsoever.
“Where’s your sister?”
When I asked with a downturned gaze, he handed me a handkerchief.
…Aah, before I realized it, I was crying.
Serious-kun answered, before joining me on the floor.
“I see. Do you need something?”
“Didn’t I tell you to stay away from him…?”
Previously, whenever I asked him about the capture targets, he’d only tell me either, “Give it up.” or “Don’t come near me.” Such an exemplary “helper” character he was, that even a villager from a straight up porn game was more useful than him.
“For a while now, Raul’s already been involved in marriage talk.”
Of course, I was aware of that.
In this game, the low-ranking heroine could only attain the True End, while the high-ranking villainess could obtain the Happy End with the capture target. Therefore, Beatrice—the villainess, would probably live happily ever after with Raul.
“…Regarding what I previously said, I’d like to retract them and apologize.”
“What you previously said…?”
“I made a misleading and inappropriate statement about your relationship with Alexei.”
“There’s no need to apologize. I don’t care how you see me.”
“I never saw you that way, what I meant to say is…”
“…Let me reaffirm, Alexei and you are friends, while you aren’t aiming for high-ranking nobles. It just so happens that the person you were interested in was a high-ranking aristocrat.”
“Why do you think so?”
“Because I’m also a high-ranking aristocrat and an eldest son, yet you never bat an eye.”
…Well, of course. Why would I aim for the capture targets of the second season? That’s just rude.
“…It would’ve been better if you were truly aiming for high-ranking nobility. Then maybe, you’ll notice me even if a little.”
I felt somewhat shaken off by his words.
Apparently, regardless of his “passive” look, he was still the love interest of the Fleeting Love Between You and Me. Then, did he also want to partake in a brief romance?
…Just do it with your heroine.
“While I accept your apology, can you look elsewhere for romance? I’m no longer interested in becoming some high-ranking noble’s temporary partner.”
—After all, from now on, I’ve decided to live for my friendship with Minarin and my hobbies.
“I mean, it isn’t like you high-ranking nobles will ever settle for a viscount’s daughter in the first place?”
Originally, the game itself was based on the short-lived romance between Alice Liddell—a baron’s daughter, who was also the model for Alice in Wonderland, and Prince Leopold George Albert—the fourth son of Queen Victoria. Hence why, there was no happy ending.
“Don’t lump me with other guys.”
“…Won’t you stop? Right now, you’re taking advantage of my broken heart, trying to lead me along.”
“…Right now? And no, I’ll take advantage of it as much as I can. Until now, haven’t I been interfering with your love life?”
…Somehow, I felt as if I’d missed a crucial piece of information.
I had no recollection of any of such interferences.
…Or, did Serious-kun perhaps think that by neglecting his role as a helper character, he was getting in my way?
“I don’t remember any of such things.”
Don’t “Huh?” me.
“But I have, in order to prevent you from being alone with another man.”
This time, it was my turn.
…Although, come to think of it, whenever I and the capture target got in the mood, he’d always appear and disturb us. Because of that, I had to capture them when he was working in the library.
I see, is that what he means?
“Won’t you let me take advantage of your heartbreak?”
When I turned to face him, there was a soft sensation on my lips.
Serious-kun… no, Vincent Strauss had kissed me.
The kiss was very gentle, yet also very sweet. I was so surprised, I simply accepted his kiss. Albeit gentle, it was sweet enough to swallow me whole.
In my head, I could hear Minarin saying, “Minarin, you cheap slut!!”
I didn’t want Minarin to say that, I didn’t want to, but…
The gentle kisses that serenaded my lips over and over again gradually deepened. As our tongue entwined, he savored every inch of my mouth. My back shuddered.
It feels too good…
Susceptive to pleasure, my thoughts eventually melted away.
However, as if to reprimand me, I could hear Minarin screaming, “Maru-chan!!!” and I pushed Vincent away.
I saw his expression distort in pain.
While I didn’t want him to make that kind of face, I was decisive.
“I, I’m absolutely done with fleeting love!!”
“That’s right! As if I’ll let myself fall in love just to remain as a beautiful memory ever again! I want to fall for someone who’ll choose me, love me, and will work together to shape a future with me! So, if you want to enjoy some short-lived romance—”
—Vincent stole my lips again.
As he drew me closer, he embraced me tightly.
As I lost my breath, he ravaged the inside of my mouth.
Only the rough breathing of each other and the obscene wet sounds from our overlapping lips resounded in the room.
Before long, he slowly released my lips, and stared into my eyes.
His dark hair and eyes, along with his face, which seemed a little childish for the native of this country, aroused an indelible sense of nostalgia.
“Then, fall for me.”
I gasped—no, I had stopped breathing.
Those words alone were more painful than any farewells I had ever heard in the entire game…
“In exchange, I’ll give you eternal love.”
…My eyes overflowed with tears.
But you’re my helper character…
As I thought so, I inadvertently spilled such noise.
Since when did I think of Vincent as mine…?
“What’s your answer?”
Within his eyes, there was a definite yearning. Considering his trait, he would never say that I should just settle to being his mistress, or that we’d both remain single forever. Nevertheless, he was also a high-ranking aristocrat, and the eldest son.
“…What about our status differences?”
“It doesn’t matter. Why do you think I decided to take over my father’s strenuous business? Yet, you always hide from me, fooling around…”
…Somehow, I’m having a faint recollection of it—
—rather than a cute younger brother, is he unexpectedly the puppy kind?
…Either way, please stop, because adorable things are my weakness.
“I don’t remember being in a relationship with you, so why are you saying these things?”
“That’s right, but…”
Vincent glared at me and sulked.
Stop, stop it—!
When the usually cool Vincent showed such an adorable side to him, how was I supposed to not fall for him!?
…I feel like a cheap slut—
—what do I do, Minarin!?
As I panicked inside, Vincent stood up vigorously. Then, he took my hand and helped me stand, before walking away.
“Hey, where are we going?”
“The student council break room.”
“I’m making sure that you won’t be able to run away from me as a fait accompli.”
…I wonder what kind of person lies beneath that serious mask.
Besides, wasn’t he the one who was running away?
“That won’t work. I’m a low-ranking noble, while you’re a high-ranking noble, remember? Besides, it isn’t like I’m still a virgin.”
At that moment, his grip on my hand tightened, while his voice became much lower.
“…Well, regarding that, I’ll compromise with getting married and bathing you every day.”
He’s already talking about marriage?
“You don’t want that?”
“Isn’t that obvious?”
I gave an immediate reply.
Why would I do such a shameful play every day?
“Well, what about you? Do you entertain the idea of having to bath me every day?”
“…I can’t say that I’m too reluctant about it.”
“What are you acting so humble for?”
While we were having such a silly conversation, we truly ended up in the break room.
“Are you really going to do it here?”
Upon entering, Vincent firmly locked the door.
…I kind of feel bad.
Since he was the capture target of the second game, I thought that he wouldn’t care much about privacy.
No, that’s not it…
For him to try to engage in sexual activity with me right off the bat, wasn’t that precisely because he was the character of such game?
“Hey, what about waiting until I start to feel something for you?”
“Haven’t I waited enough? But instead, you fooled around. Therefore, I’ll just take advantage of your weakness.”
…How am I supposed to know that?
…And yet, what’s wrong with me?
Despite hearing such a bizarre thing, I shuddered.
…I’m sorry, Minarin. You’re right, I’m easy. Moreover, I’m also stupid, I can’t exactly call you a fool, now…
Then, he made me sit on the bed in the break room, before unbuttoning my uniform.
“If you don’t remove your clothes, they’ll get wrinkled.”
Thus, our lips overlapped again. While kissing me repeatedly, Vincent deftly took off my clothes.
“…I feel like I’m being carried away?”
“Don’t think too much about it.”
“How do you feel about this? I just lost my love…”
“It’s a love that’ll vanish and be treated as if it never existed, right?”
“Did you listen to—…”
“I did. Actually, if he could make you happy, I was thinking of giving up. Then, I’d just watch over you and the man you love. Well, I changed my mind.”
“Because you’re an awful judge of character.”
When I heard that, I couldn’t help but stare at him. If Minarin was here, she’d fully agree. Well, I thought so, too.
“Mia, let’s fall in love.”
Vincent put his forehead on mine and whispered like a secret promise.
Ah, I can’t keep up—
—that’s an amazing killer phrase.
If he went this far, there’s no way for me to resist.
As he removed my clothes, he gave me shallow kisses, touching our lips numerous times. Then, as our bodies sank into the bed, I could feel the soft and comfortable linen.
Surprisingly, Vincent’s body—which covered mine, had supple muscles. To examine his body, I put my hand on his chest.
“…Don’t aggravate me.”
Vincent chuckled and kissed my palm.
Is that his way of pleading to me?
He gently caressed my hair, and rained kisses on my face, making cute little sounds the entire time, as if nibbling on a slightly toasty, yet fluffy and sweet cotton candy.
When my eyes met his, Vincent smiled happily. I was flustered, as if I was a virgin all over again.
Then, he changed the angle of his kiss, deepening it little by little. Before I knew it, I had fallen prey to his fierce and hot kiss. At that moment, his hand had slid to my cheek, and then to my chest.
He fondled my chest—frustratingly delicately, at that. In search of further stimulation, I buried my fingers through his black hair and devoured his lips.
“Nnnh… Aah, more…”
“You’re too cute.”
With a sweet smile, Vincent spoke in a teasing manner between kisses.
No, you are.
What’s with this sweetness?
Now that I had savored it, what if I became addicted?
With that thought in mind, I inhaled deeply.
“…Hey, are you truly alright with this? At this rate, I won’t be able to let you go.”
He pulled away slightly, and incredulously stared at me with his almond eyes.
“…Are you provoking me on purpose? What’s left of my rationality is about to fly.”
As if asking for my consent, something hard was pressed against my thigh.
…What a relief.
The size was normal.
Since he was one of the capture targets of the second season, I was scared that the size would be extreme… but it was normal.
What’s wrong with me?
He, who’d been caressing me as if I was a fragile object, began to tease me. His fingertips grabbed the tip of my chest, before pinching it—
I involuntarily bucked my hips due to the pleasurable pain.
“Do you want me to insert it?”
Vincent whispered sweetly into my ear.
“Nnh… yes, you can… insert it—”
“Hmm… I changed my mind. I’ve been enduring it for a long time, so I’d like to enjoy myself some more.”
Breathing roughly, he pressed a hard object against my thigh, and glared at me in a sulking manner. His crooked expression was bad for me. Aching for him, I smirked.
“If you insert it, it’ll feel even better?”
When I laughed provocatively, he gave me a biting kiss. Even a mere kiss from him made me crazy…
“Don’t provoke a virgin.”
After such a maddening kiss, Vincent ran his lips on my neck.
Vincent, are you a virgin…?
Then, he must be tasty…
When I was thinking about that, he pinched my nipple again, and it stung a bit. Since Vincent was often involved in romantic short stories, could he read minds?
Then, he put his mouth on my chest, and rolled his tongue around the tip, before sucking it. The subtle pains were gradually replaced by pleasure, and waves of intoxicating pains pervaded me.
Within his palm, the shape of my breast changed. As he gently nibbled on the protrusion, he stimulated my sensitive part with his thing. Eroded by the pleasure he gave me, I couldn’t control my voice—
—Nevertheless, it still wasn’t enough.
Then, he slowly slid down. Despite being filled with ecstasy, I regained my sanity and hurriedly pushed his head.
“Is it not good?”
Ignoring my refusal, he buried his face between my legs. As he ran his fingers on my folds, he let his tongue crawl.
Due to the strong pleasure that I’d been craving, my entire body shook.
A lewd slurping noise could be heard.
—It was incredibly embarrassing, yet felt so good…
After scooping the dripping nectar with his fingers, he gently inserted them into me. As if massaging the inside, he slowly pulled it out, before putting it in again. However, I desperately tightened around his fingers, wanting him to explore deeper.
The tip of his tongue swirled around my flower bud, and occasionally, he’d gnaw on it. Every time he did, I was about to cum, but I resisted.
“Please, don’t let me come on my own…”
I shook my head left and right.
“I-I can’t anymore, please…”
“No, hold on a little longer.”
Due to his spilled breath and the gentle stimulation from the shape of his lips, my entire body went numb as my voice leaked out. The pleasure was getting more intense, and my insides clenched on his fingers even more. Unable to bear it, I let out a small scream. At the same time, he pulled his fingers out.
“…W, why did you stop?”
When I tearfully looked up at him, he held his breath.
“I can’t do this, you’re too erotic.”
How silly you are…
I chuckled. After regaining my composure, I decided to unleash my special move.
“Hey, I can’t take it anymore”
I clung to Vincent’s neck and pleaded with my gaze.
“Please, put it in…?”
Vincent was astonished. Then, he walked away from me, and took off his trousers, along with his underwear.
“Dammit!! Even though I’ve been desperately enduring it!! It’s as if I’m going crazy!!”
He violently spread my legs, before rubbing his heat between me, slathering it with my nectar.
“Don’t you dare complain about my lack of skill!”
Unlike his usual self, he’d threatened me, before shoving himself into me. At the rough sensation, I couldn’t help but scream.
My back arched due to the pleasure I’d been aching for, and my toes were clenched. My inside was burning hot.
As if crazed by the sudden wave of pleasure, I convulsed over and over again, and in turn, constricted around him.
“Ah, wait, no, Mia…! Ugh—”
Letting out a short groan, Vincent devoured my lips hungrily, before pounding me hard. Our sensitive parts rubbed against each other, making obscenely wet noises. The overflowing nectar dripped on my thighs. Before long, his mass swelled and exploded inside me.
I shivered. I could feel something pouring into me as I bit my lips. He made a few small thrusts to contain all his desires within me.
The greedy kiss eventually calmed down, and changed into soft bites, before slowly parting. Letting out a short gasp, Vincent brushed his sweaty bangs.
“Aah, you’re going to pull it out so soon…?”
I muttered under my breath.
Ah, well, he’s a virgin.
It often happens to virgins…
When I was idly thinking about such things, I met Vincent’s eyes. Then, a wicked, seductive smile bloomed on his baby face.
“Don’t worry. I can still do it. Let me recover.”
“Eh!? Wait a minute…”
Somehow, I had the urge to escape…
I hurriedly twisted my body and tried to crawl away, but he seized me by the waist and rammed me from behind.
“Haa… Won’t you entertain me a bit longer, Euphemia?”
Slowly this time, Vincent began to move his hips as if searching inside me. A chill ran down my spine.
…It feels amazingly good.
“Ooh, there, yes…!”
“Y, yes… there, there…!”
Before long, I was blown away by the pleasure, and in the corner of my mind, I found myself making an excuse…
…If it’s just a bit longer, then it’s fine, right?
…At that time, I had no idea that his description of “a bit more” deviated from the realm of senses.
Basically, because I thought that he was a virgin, I underestimated him.
What I had forgotten was the fact that he was one of the R-18 otome game capture targets…
…To put it simply, he was ruthless.
Confronted with his “unequaled” feature, which wasn’t in the first season, my waist was about to fall off, and I had to wobble to the dormitory. I’d said it many times, but it was truly a deranged experience. I wanted to cry…
Under the clear sky, I bent my hips at 90 degrees and bowed my head.
“I’m truly sorry!!”
Minarin stood beside me, watching over my actions. In front of me was the heroine of the second season, whose eyes fluttered open in surprise.
“Huh?? What is this about??”
“I’m really sorry!! I’ve violated my boundary as the heroine of the first season!! As a reincarnator in an otome game, what a shameful behavior it was!!”
Amidst the wonderful autumn weather, I found myself apologizing to 2nd Hero-chan.
…If anything, I’m the one eaten by Vincent.
Nevertheless, the fact remained that I had devoured one of her targets. Therefore, it was only right for me to apologize, for I had violated her territory.
2nd Hero-chan was utterly stupefied.
Well, no wonder, considering what I’ve just done…
“Uhm, I still don’t understand the reason behind your apology…”
“I ate Vincent. I’m truly sorry about that.”
“Oh, so that’s what this is about…”
2nd Hero-chan let out a sigh of relief. In response, I raised my head.
“But, weren’t you aiming for a reverse harem so that you could unlock Alexei’s route?”
“Huh? With that horrifying psychopath? No way.”
To 2nd Hero-chan’s fast reply, Minarin reacted.
“Huh!? You aren’t aiming for Lord Alex!?”
“Obviously not!! In fact, I’m terribly scared of him! If I were to capture him, he’d just kill everyone else! I don’t want anyone to die because of me!”
2nd Hero-chan waved her hand profusely to shake off our assumption.
“Huh? Then why are you keeping your virginity?”
Minarin, that’s not a question you should just ask anyone during the first meeting…
“Don’t you see? Romance is fun while it lasts. “
2nd Hero-chan sat on a chia outside the cafeteria, stirring her iced latte with a straw.
“Is that… so?”
Minarin, who loved Alexei, tilted her head in confusion.
I also didn’t understand.
“After all, when I go all the way, I’ll just be hammered with reality. To me, it’s a turn off. That’s why, I stretch it out every time. Besides, the ending’s the same. Whether I successfully captured them or ran out of time, they’ll just get engaged to someone else~”
2nd Hero-chan sighed.
“Despite knowing that, did you still do it anyway?”
“That’s right. Because unlike in other isekais, I won’t be banished or be sent to a brothel. I also don’t care about getting dumped.”
…The innocent-looking 2nd Hero-chan was actually a carnivore who could compete with me.
Is that why she mass-produced zombies?
“I’m being serious. Moreover, I have no intention of capturing Vincent from the start.”
At Minarin’s question, 2nd Hero-chan looked somewhat distant.
“…No, I’m good enough to be siblings with him. Besides, he’s the ‘unequaled’ type, right? For me, that’s a bit…”
I involuntarily hung my head. While I knew the setting for the second season, I didn’t remember all the details, perhaps because of the impact from Alexei’s setting, or because the ‘unequaled’ type was commonplace in R-18 otome game…
As I dropped my shoulders in dejection, Minarin supported me.
“Don’t worry, Maru-chan.”
…It isn’t like I’m anxious, but—
—Vincent promised that he’d love me.
When I was thinking that, Alexei’s voice, calling out to Minarin, could be heard from afar.
Minarin jolted and ran straight towards Alexei like a puppy through the courtyard, where the wind blew and the trees swayed.
As I saw her off, I smiled wryly.
“…Tell you what, Minarin got guts.”
“If I make a mistake in even one option, I’d either be greeted with a Death End, or face a lifelong imprisonment. I don’t know if I can handle that.”
After running up to Alexei, Minarin had to be reminded to breathe by him.
Well, as long as Minarin’s happy, then it’s fine.
When Alexei smiled and patted her on the head, Minarin laughed happily.
In the beautiful courtyard, we narrowed our eyes towards such brilliant scenery.
Even if we somehow managed to avoid the Bad End in Alexei’s route, we’d rather protect that precious sight. Therefore, the hidden route shall remain hidden.
After a while, the second heroine turned to me. Then, she slowly extended her right hand.
“My name is Mizuki. You may call me ‘Miju.’ Nice to meet you, Maru-chan.”
“Yes, nice to meet you too, Miju.”
The second heroine… Miju shook my hand and showed me the innocent smile of a heroine.
…By the way, Miju later told me that Vincent couldn’t read minds.
Well, I guess so.
In other words, I wore my heart on my sleeve.
Thinking about the future where I’d become the prey of such an unequaled person, I sighed deeply.
…It was a secret to Vincent, but I still thought that he finished too early.
