Given That I’ve Become a Villainess, I’d Like to Live Freely [Chapter Seven]

Finally, the day had arrived!

That’s right! Today was my sixth birthday. Previously, I had asked my father for a pet and received an immediately positive response after playing cute.

I’ve been waiting excitedly since then.

“Allen! Today is my birthday! It’ll be the special day that I receive a pet!”

“Rose-sama, congratulations! You’ve been looking forward to it this entire time.”

“Yeah! I wonder what kind of animal father has prepared? Though, I’m confident that I can love it no matter what kind it is.”

“I’m looking forward to it…However, I’ll be lonely if you spend all your time with them so please remember to spend some time with me as well, okay?”

“Of course! Allen and I will be raising them together after all. It’ll be fun.”

“…That’s not what I mean though…”

“Huh? Did you say something?”

I couldn’t make out Allen’s last words because they were so quiet but decided not to worry about it after he said: “it’s nothing.”

Kon kon.[1]

“Milady? May I enter?”

“Ah! Mary! What’s the matter?”

“Milady, happy birthday. The Master and Madam are calling for you.”

Mary’s birthday greeting made me very happy. As for my parents calling, it couldn’t be about anything other than my request.

“I’m coming immediately, let’s go Allen.”



Allen and I followed Mary to the living room where my mother and father were waiting.

“Master, Madam, Milady has arrived.”

Mary opened the door to the living room; my parents were sitting together on the sofa.

“You’ve come. Happy birthday my adorable Rose!”

“My cute, cute Rose, happy sixth birthday!”

With those words, my parents hugged me and I felt a warm feeling enveloping my heart.

“Father, mother, thank you very much.”

“…Now, about that matter. Do you remember?”

“Yes! I remember.”

“Fufu, your eyes are sparkling. You were really looking forward to this, huh. It’s really frustrating that she went to you. I wanted to see the cute face Rose made when asking too.”

My mother repeatedly shifted her gaze between my father and me, her cheeks puffed out in protest. My mother was such a beautiful person that it made it difficult for me to look her in the eye.

“I-I’m sorry. I’m so sorry! T-then Rose. I brought the animal like you wanted, so please close your eyes.”

Apparently my father couldn’t meet my mother’s gaze right now either, so he averted his eyes and apologized before turning to me.

I closed my eyes like father had asked and awaited his next words.

“…Rose, you can open your eyes now.”

What kind of animal is waiting for me, I wonder. A puppy? A kitten? Or in anticipation for the future, is it something like a horse? Ehh— I wonder what it could be.

With those expectations, I slowly opened my eyes. In front of me was…

“Father?”

I knocked on the entrance to his study. Albert-san, who was already inside, opened the door for us. Allen and I entered the room to find my father at war with a pile of documents.

I’m really sorry for disturbing your work~ But I wanted to ask about the pet as soon as possible!

“What’s wrong Rose?”

“…Well, you see…Father, I have a request!”

“A request? You haven’t asked me for anything since that fever. I’m so happy! Well then, what do you wish for?”

I’m grateful for the fever because I’d learned about the reincarnation. It wouldn’t have surprised me if prior to that I’d been a selfish and demanding child.

“…Well, um…for my sixth birthday, I would like a pet!”

I’ll tell him boldly. I’m pretty sure that my doting father won’t refuse, but in my previous life, I was someone that relied entirely on myself. For that reason, making requests like this did not come easy to me.

“A pet?”

“Yes! I want a cat or dog. I promise to take care of them properly.”

“Please~” I added, looking at him cutely with upturned eyes. Father fell over abruptly.

“A-albert! M-my daughter!!”

“Aa~ Milady is truly lovely.”

Father and Albert-san came over and patted my head.

“Of course, I’ll get one for you! Rose, I’ll get you any present that you wish for! Look forward to your birthday.”

“Father, thank you. I’m so happy! I love you!”

“Is that so! I love Rose as well! I’ll prepare an unparalleled pet for you!”

… Unparalleled? What does that mean? Well, it’s fine as long as I get a pet! I’m looking forward to it~

If only I’d paid a little more attention to the word ‘unparalleled’ at that time, then my actual birthday might not have come as such a surprise. The only thing on my mind then was that I’d be able to raise a pet and play with it to my heart’s content.

“Isn’t that great, Rose-sama?”

“Yeah! Let’s take care of it together Allen.”

Absolute Happiness☆Heroine

Title: Absolute Happiness☆Heroine

Original: 絶対幸福☆ヒロイン

Author: 鷹司

Summary:

On that day, I regained my memories and fainted. Why? It’s because I realized that I, Saracia, am a villainess destined to die 100% no matter the route.

What does tomorrow look like for a villainess discovered by the heroine?








I am the daughter of a duke.

It’s terrifying.

Up until a little while ago, I truly believed that the world revolved around me. I thought everything would always go the way I wanted it to.

Then I remembered.

This is the world of an otome game.

However, did it really have to be a passionate game like『Absolute☆Heroine!〜Only I Can Save You〜』?

One day after waking up, I remembered seeing my previous memories in a dream. I could only hold my head in my hands.

It would appear that I had a previous life.

I was a woman a little younger than thirty, who quietly enjoyed various otaku-like hobbies.

Well, I liked otome games, if I hadn’t I probably wouldn’t have known.

How many times did I think about entering this kind of world?

However, now I just want to leave.

It’s because Absolute☆Heroine is a game that makes only the heroine absolutely happy. Everyone else is pretty miserable.

Absolute☆Heroine wasn’t a famous game. It only had three capture targets, and didn’t have much mainstream success. Some people really appreciated it, though.

For example, people who like stories about unhappy youths.

It’s great when your beloved is happy, but when they get beat up or die for you? This is bad! Something like that, I love it ♡

That’s the kind of person that greatly loves Absolute☆Heroine. In my previous life, I was one of them.

The capture targets that the heroine doesn’t choose are condemned or even killed. I’m getting fired up! Amazing! Sui-sama’s lifeless face looked really precious too.

We’ve strayed from the main point, but the scary part about this game is that many around the capture targets are dealt miserable hands.

It was so impressive that it was almost praised as both an otome and battle royale game…[1].

In the Bad Ending, the heroine is sent to a monastery where she lives out the rest of her days. So why are the other characters convicted of being involved in some rebellion? Although the scene was blurry, I thought the mass-beheading scene would haunt my dreams because of the voice actors’ intensities.

The Bad Ending is said to be the most difficult to obtain after the True Harem End. In this game, though the heroine is always happy, those around her face so much misfortune that it makes my heart ache.

Well, the fact a game like this exists means that those types of characters are popular.

The villainess’ name is Duchess Saracia Houston.

That’s right. The current me.

I’m the fiancée of the main capture target, Crown Prince Sureiasu-sama, hailing from the nation’s highest ranking aristocrat family. Beautiful and brilliant with a terrible personality: truly a villainous villain.

In the Prince’s route, “I” eventually die, but not before going mad with jealousy and attacking the happy couple; even managing to slash the Prince’s shoulder.

The second capture target is the son of the Prime Minister. In his route, I’m falsely accused of a crime and hanged. The Prince abandons me and watches the execution. Afterward, he uncovers a conspiracy plot involving my family and sentences them all to death as well.

The third capture target is a knight who is childhood friends with the heroine. In his route, the heroine unintentionally offends Saracia who retaliates against the heroine’s household. Enraged, the knight kills Saracia and the couple escapes in order to avoid punishment. They join the rebel faction and loot the country. In the end, I’m killed because they love each other too much.

Anyway, Saracia eventually dies in all the routes.

In the Bad End, a civil war breaks out and aristocrats are targeted and killed off by the masses. It goes without saying that in the Harem End, “I” once again go mad with jealousy and try to kill someone. I’m executed for treason against the royal family.

Saracia really dies in every route.

In the sequel game, you can get a bonus scene of Saracia: a diary entry recounting a dream from the Prince’s route that’s basically overflowing jealousy.

The players appreciated the eroticism and grotesqueness of the game; aptly categorized R18. There were even fan-works portraying Saracia as happy, beautiful and healthy.

Basically, I am that girl.



Furthermore, I’ve already met the heroine and said something pretty terrible to her at our first meeting.

Worse still, the Prince saw the exchange.

Why couldn’t I have remembered this all at the beginning…everything feels stacked against me.



One day, I was agonizing over these problems. I didn’t know what to do anymore, I’m tired of thinking about it.

I just wanted to be alone. I was walking down the stairs with my followers, when I noticed someone climbing up.

“Hee…”

I made a choked sound and felt like I couldn’t breathe.

Suddenly I remembered a scene where the heroine falls down the stairs after being pushed by the villainess. If that happened, I could really kiss this life goodbye.

The heroine opened her mouth.

“Good morning, Villainess-san.”

That smile which can’t be described as anything other than adorable was so dreadfully terrifying to me, that at that moment I lost consciousness.



I awoke to an unfamiliar ceiling.

“Are you awake Saracia-san?”

Seeing the heroine next to me, I stiffened in fear.

“Am I really that scary? Did you remember something?”

That adorable smile…

Why was it so scary?

Her eyes narrowed to two crescents, making it difficult to deduce her emotions. It’s like she’s wearing a mask and I can’t face her directly.

“Saracia-sama, I should be happy right?”

The heroine whispered to confirm something ‘obvious’.

From these words, the unmistakable words of a player, I began to cry in despair.





I was confused.

After being summoned by His Majesty the King, I arrived at the audience hall to find cabinet members and the academy’s most important students all lined up, standing side-by-side. I tilted my neck as charges were read against me.

The nature of the offense was treason; price fixing of grains that lead to public anxiety in turn fanning the flames of rebellion.

But why would I hurt father?

It’s true that many of the documents produced as evidence contain my signature. Someone is distorting the truth in order to frame me.

This is wrong. Looking around I see that everyone’s gazes are full of contempt and accusation.

I’m upset that no one is on my side.

“No objections?”

“I did not do this!”

“Then what is this evidence!”

My father who was watching me looked furious at my words.

“…I thought you alone would never betray me.”

“Father…”

It doesn’t matter what I say, everyone is looking at me with cold eyes.

Even those classmates in the student council with me are diverting their eyes and awaiting father’s judgment. Responding now will only make matters worse. No one is going to protect me.



She’s one of them.

I met her eyes.

Louise.

A cute student that has been stirring up my heart ever since transferring; she is a secretary in the student council. When our eyes met, her shoulders jumped a little.

The gentle you that listens to everyone, I hope you will believe me.

I stare at her thinking this. I must look like I’ll cry, opening and closing my mouth repeatedly.

Please say that I’m innocent.

However, after looking around, she murmurs an apology and turns away from me.

In that powerless voice, even she who – was like the Virgin Mary – smiled at and listened to everyone, has abandoned me. The reality hit hard.

No matter how hard I look around, no one is on my side.

Sitting in a daze, I could see my father opening his mouth to punish me, a cold and hateful look on his face.

“Crown Prince Sureiasu, for the crime of treason you are-“

“Please wait!”

It was my fiancée, Saracia, who threw the doors open and burst in.

This was the first time that I’d ever heard her raise her voice. She, who always had others do her dirty work. Further, it seems that she ran here because she’s panting and clearly out of breath.

That Saracia…?

“Saracia-sama, it does not matter who you are, it’s outrageous to interrupt His Majesty.”

“There’s a reason for this Your Majesty. Please look at this.”

The Grand Chamberlain ran over first and took the bundle of papers from her. Upon looking them over, his face changed color. He rushed towards the King.

“This is…”

“Would you allow me to make some supplementary remarks?”

“I’ll permit it.”

“If you’ll allow me to start from the conclusion. Your Majesty, these charges are false. Though it’s been meticulously concealed, Your Majesty’s personal attendant is a spy from the neighboring state. They are trying to weaken our national power.”

“What?”

In spite of being in front of the King, all in attendance looked like they wanted to devour the documents in his hands.

“Grand Chamberlain, the Prince’s arrest is nullified. I never want to see that traitor again.”[2]

“Certainly.”

The entire room is filled with an awkward silence. No one can look me in the face; everyone is waiting for someone else to speak first.

Even more than joy at being vindicated or anger at not being believed, I feel far greater confusion at how only Saracia figured out the truth.

“Ah! Saracia-sama, you have my deepest gratitude for seeing through the neighboring country’s scheme.”

“I am honored by your words.”

“But, how did you know? My eyes were completely deceived. How could you see through their plot?”

For the first time today, Saracia seemed at a loss for words.

Looking troubled, she surveyed the room before locking eyes with me. Embarrassed, she looked away.

Though seemingly hesitating on whether or not to say something, the confession slowly began.

“It is…because I believed in His Highness. Even though I am only seventeen, he’s been my fiancé ever since I was born. Since I met him at age ten, I’ve longed to always be by his side. I’ve been watching him all this time, so I know exactly how much he cares for Your Majesty and our country. It had to be a trick!”

I was stunned by her words.

I thought no one believed me.

I thought I had to turn my back on everyone.

Yet, it was Saracia, who I had treated cruelly, that loved and believed in me.

Even though her ears were dyed bright read, she was still proudly declaring her feelings for me.

I continued to stare with wide eyes. She turned her head and our eyes met.

At that moment, her face changed dramatically.

“Aaah, Prince Sureiasu.”

She had always been a cold beauty who looked down on others. But now, her cheeks were bashful and red. She looked embarrassed all the way up to her beautiful eyebrows.

Waving both hands in front of her, she gave off a feeling of innocence.

“Your Highness, it’s not what you think…I wasn’t avoiding telling you. I just didn’t want to spring it on you out of nowhere, but I had to properly say it. I actually said that I was yearning for you, ahhh, but it’s true, I really am! Nooo, what am I saying?!”

Saracia went on like that for a bit longer before eventually quieting down.

She was in a state of complete disarray; her eyes full of tears threatening to spill over and her skin was dyed light red. She covered her face with her hands to hide her expression and whispered in a small voice that she wanted to disappear.

“Please don’t look.”

Her calming voice echoed throughout the silent chamber. Noticing this, her face seemed to let off steam, and she ran out.[3]



“Sureiasu, there seems to have been a great misunderstanding.”

Everyone was dumbfounded, unable to make a single sound. I turned back to my father.

“Even if it was skilfully concealed, I was going to falsely charge you with a crime and strip you of your title. Yet Saracia-jyou, who is only a student, realized it.”[4]

“No…I too apologize for inviting such a situation without realizing. I was also compromised by a spy, I am sorry for causing this situation”

I smiled while answering, knowing that this would relax the strained atmosphere a little.

However, can I forgive you?

Can I so easily forget the humiliation that I’ve faced?



I’ll endure it for now.

I don’t want to be here anymore. I don’t want to forgive you lot, but I also don’t want to listen to your drawn out repentance either.

I have to chase after Saracia and make up for the past. That’s the most important. I want to see that rose-tinted expression and thank her as soon as possible.

Thank you for helping me. Thank you for always thinking of me. I want to run to her side and tell her these feelings.





“Are you happy Saracia?”

She suddenly said that she wanted to have a fun and leisurely teatime with just the two of us.

After the previous incident, she kept pestering me to become friends with her because we’ve both been reincarnated. We’ve had tea before, but this is the first I’ve been asked a question like that.

She tilted her head and her strawberry blonde hair caught the sunlight and sparkled.

I couldn’t see fraying, frizz or even a split end anywhere. Even if that’s the power of a heroine, it was fascinating. She called my name again.

“Ee, thanks to you, I’m happy.”

“If you’re happy, I am as well~”

I have some doubts about why she’s saying that and laughing, so I’ll just ask.

“You’re always happy aren’t you? Because you’re the heroine.”

Louise looks upset hearing that, puffing her cheeks like a squirrel.

“The heroine is meant to bring happiness to those around her, but it doesn’t directly affect me.”

“Ara, Louise isn’t happy?”

“Yeah…well, I was happy to be surrounded by people I love in the beginning, but it’s painful knowing that those close to me will be unhappy because of my choices.”

Fed up, Louise chews on some colorful baked goods.

“The game has reloads so you can enjoy both happy and sad moments, but living like this is a nightmare.”

“Is that so…I’ve never thought about it from your position. I’m sorry.”

“Aah, if I enter one person’s route then the others end up dead, but if I went after the Harem Route I’d feel like a terrible woman.”

My face falls, feeling like I’ve said something bad. Suddenly a bunch of baked sweets are stuffed into my mouth.

“I don’t like it when Saracia’s unhappy.”

“What are you doing?!”

Louise apologized while laughing, not seeming particularly sincere. Well, eating delicious food always cheers me up. The dark feeling blows away.

“If everyone wasn’t happy, I would hate it. This way everyone gets to be happy; Saracia is happy and I’ve also reached a Happy Ending.”

“You’re greedy.”

“Girls aren’t greedy.”

“I guess that’s true.”

“Right?”

While I was laughing, someone hugged me from behind, surprising me.

“Sounds like you’re having fun Saracia.”

“Your Highness…you’re too close.”

His deep, sexy voice next to my ear and body behind mine are too much to handle. I stiffen, feeling shy.

“Is this better?”

“That’s perfect, Your Highness. Saracia-jyou probably wants to be even more lovey-dovey.”

“Lafretto! Don’t teach His Highness weird things!”

I was so surprised by His Highness’ proximity that I didn’t even notice Louise’s lover. Lately she’s been with her childhood friend, the knight Lafretto. He’s completely smitten.

Though, that His Highness listened to my request filled me with warm feelings, making me smile.



Speaking of which, the Prime Minister’s son Alejandro and Louise don’t end up particularly close. Instead, after a family meeting, the ties between him and his relatives deepen. They become a close family.









The heroine is tied to her childhood friend.

The villainess is connected with the Crown Prince.

The Prime Minister’s son is happily running around with a father complex.

The neighboring country’s plans were foiled so there was no civil war.

Precisely because Louise was not a typical heroine, but a greedy one, everyone was able to find their own Happy Ending.

Accepting my good luck, I gave up against this small and adorable girl. Realizing that no one was a match for her, I happily accepted defeat.






[1] 虐殺 (ぎゃくさつ), so literally would have been “atrocity” game but I felt battle royale fit better.

[2] He means the spy.

[3] Probably that red-faced steaming effect seen so often in anime. Basically, she’s embarrassed. So cute (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*: ・゚

[4] The suffix “-jyou” is used for unmarried women; like “miss”.



Notes:

My first short story! ヽ(>∀<☆)ノ Honestly, this one was pretty difficult for me so I had to rely on machine translations from time to time. Some guesswork went into this so I’m sure there are more than a few inaccuracies. I’m really sorry about that (。╯︵╰。)

Story-wise, I wish there was a bit more romance, but I’m glad the heroine turned out to be a nice lady! The father-con capture target made me laugh ☚(*´∀`☚) Good for him!

Given That I’ve Become a Villainess, I’d Like to Live Freely [Chapter Five]

We returned to the living room after a tour of the mansion. I held Allen’s hand from beginning to end.

“Fufu, you’re holding hands. Rose, Allen, welcome back.”

Mother said this playfully, but father was fidgeting and looking somewhat restless.

“We’re back. I was able to show Allen the entire house. He’s going to be my personal attendant from now on?”

“That’s great Rose! Yes, that’s right. He’ll be exclusively dedicated to you.”

“He comes from a long line of butlers, so there’s no need to worry.”

“I’m really happy to hear that! Is your father a butler as well?”

Apparently, Allen comes from a line of butlers that have served our family – the Wensley ducal house – for generations. Accordingly, he’s been training to become a butler himself.

“Like my father, I will do my best to serve you!”

When I saw Allen’s sparkling eyes, my heart started pounding, but lets keep that a secret.





From then on, wherever I went – inside or outside the estate – Allen was always with me. Its been half a year since we met.

We were in the garden today. I was relaxing while drinking tea that he had prepared. Suddenly I saw a bird and said:

“I want to pet it…”

“Yes?”

Allen asked, having not heard me clearly.

“…Well, I was just thinking how great it would be to have a pet.”

“…A pet?”

“Yeah, I want a pet. Do you think father would allow it if I asked him? It would make me really happy to sleep next to a dog or cat.”

“Rose-sama seems to really like animals.”

“Well…my eyes are scary and I have a pretty severe appearance so they probably wouldn’t like me very much…but you know…”

I look quite harsh and up until now, I haven’t had the chance to properly interact with animals so I understand that he’d be surprised, but in my past life, I died trying to save a kitten. On my days off from work, I’d heal myself by going to cat or dog cafes, zoos and aquariums. If my apartment had allowed one then I absolutely would have kept a pet. In this life, I haven’t been able to interact with animals even though I like them so much. That’s why I’m desperately seeking their healing presence.

“N-no! I don’t think Milady looks severe! It’s only that I’ve never seen you interacting with animals before…”

“It’s alright, don’t worry. I know myself well…Allen, are you not scared of my face?”

“No! Of course not! I certainly don’t think you’re scary. When we first met, I thought you were beautiful. I didn’t think you were scary at all.”

I’m a little happy that Allen denied it so strongly.

I’m glad he isn’t scared. Given that I’ve become a villainess, I’m sure that my face is severe as well~ I wonder if I’ll be hated at school.

“Allen, thank you.”

I was relieved that at least Allen was on my side. I felt that I could accept any outcome as the villainess if he remained that way.

“Alright! Let’s go ask father for permission!”

“Eh? Rose-sama?!”

Allen chased after me who had already started walking. Without worrying, I headed towards my father’s study.

“Rose, are you here?”

“What’s the matter father?”

I asked my father who was sitting on the living room sofa. My mother walked into the room with a young boy.

“Mother?”

“This is Allen. He’ll be your personal butler starting today.”

“He’s the same age as Rose.”

“I-I’m Allen. Roselia-sama, thank you for having me.” He bowed beautifully as he said this.

Allen was a handsome boy with black hair and blue eyes.

“Allen, I’m Roselia. It’s nice to meet you, please call me Rose.”

I smiled and held out my hand.

Though I smiled, because Roselia has a villainous face it might still come off as pretty scary, but since we’re meeting for the first time it wouldn’t do to have a poker face. Therefore, I put on the best smile that I could.

“…Rose-sama…”

He shifted his gaze downward as he said my name. However, I saw that his ears were a little red and so his looking away didn’t bother me.

“Arara, Allen-kun, are you feeling shy?”

My mother asked happily and Allen’s ears turned even redder.

“That’s right! Mother, Father, can I give Allen a tour of the house?”

“Eeh, that’s a good idea. Have a safe trip.”

“Ahh.”

After getting their permission, I took Allen by the hand and led him out of the room.

Gacha.

“Rose! Are you alright?”

“Are you okay to stand up? Please rest a bit more.”

The door opened and two people – one man and one woman – entered. They looked worried because I had gotten up from bed.

“Ehh. I’m already fine now.”

“Maa, Rose? Why are you using that tone?”

The woman approached me in surprise. This person must be my mother.

“Do you still have a fever? You’re speaking differently from usual.”

‘Aah~ differently, well, I do become a villainess in the future, I wonder if it was because I was selfish.’

“…No, my fever has subsided. It’s just, I thought I should start to change a little from now onward, beginning with my speech…”

“Fufu, that’s right, Rose is already five years old. It’s around that age where you start wanting to be an adult.”

“I-is that so. Though, that makes me feel a bit lonely. It’s been fine up until now, it’s family like.”

‘That’s true, it’s better to be relaxed when speaking to family.’

“Okay. I understand!”

I smiled in order to put my parents at ease as they left the room.

From her words I have grasped the current situation.

First, I must have died in my previous life. After all, it’s hard to imagine that I could survive after colliding with that truck. Second, with how this maid named Mary was addressing me – “Ojou-sama” – I must have become the daughter of a wealthy household.

Mary left the room exclaiming that she needed to call “Master and Madam.”

My parents will be arriving soon, before that I have to take a look at my current appearance.

Getting up from my bed, I walk towards the full-length mirror.

“…Is this me? This countanence, I know it…!!! That’s right! From the otome game that Erika was playing…”

In my past life, Erika was my best friend. She was an otaku who often encouraged me to play otome games. But I was never good at them and I preferred novels.

This was the figure of the villainess from the otome game that my best friend played.

“No way…I reincarnated as a villainess.”

Though I understand that I’ve been reincarnated as the villainess, I’ve never played the actual game itself. I only know second hand information from what my friend told me.

‘I know that the villainess is engaged to either the Prince or Marquis depending on the route, but it’s a bad ending for her, because her engagement is canceled. It’s the heroine that gets a happy ending.’

I don’t know the actual contents, only that she meets a bad end. I might have been able to avoid it if I knew the cause, but I don’t know the details at all.

“There’s no choice but to live freely…Let’s not get engaged.”

Given That I’ve Become a Villainess, I’d Like to Live Freely [Chapter One]

Though it was usual to work overtime, I was able to get off at the regular time that day.

‘This is so rare~ Since it’s such a nice day, maybe I should walk around for a bit before going home. Ah! Afterwards, I’ll buy something to drink on my way back.’

Instead of the usual route, I took a detour. I walked towards a nearby convenience store when suddenly a black kitten jumped out at me. It took off running towards the highway.

“Eh! Wa-!!!!”

I ran after the kitten in a hurry. I couldn’t catch it immediately. It was only after I propelled myself at full power that I finally reached it.

At that moment, I heard the repeated blares of a truck horn. However, reaching the kitten had taken all of my power, and I could not move.

Using only my upper body, I threw the kitten towards the plants near the sidewalk.





Immediately after, a large truck flashed before my eyes.




“…Nn”

“O-ojou-sama?! Are you awake?!”

“Huh? Ojou-sama…?”

I slowly opened my eyes and turned towards the speaker.

“…Who? …Nn? Wait a minute…Just now, the truck…”

“Ahh, thank goodness. Ojou-sama, you’ve been unconscious for a few days now. Mary was so worried because you wouldn’t open your eyes. I’m truly relieved!

“…”

Completely unable to comprehend the situation, I could only stare at the girl who was speaking.
