I Don’t Care, So Let Me Go Home! [Chapter One]

Chapter One

-----What a farce.

Right now, I’m in the middle of the graduation ceremony at the Royal Lemaire Magic Academy. Although he’d started by talking about how he’d enjoyed his time as a student, he suddenly began hurling loud accusations that were not at all suitable for the occasion.

Sadly, the culprit was Christophe Lemaire, the Crown Prince of this kingdom.

…Isn’t this useless in a room where national and international heavyweights have gathered???

According to His Highness, his fiancée, Irene, the daughter of Duke Dilaver, had harmed Maria, the daughter of Baron Rouge, who was standing next to him.

Looking at this scene, I hid the laughter that threatened to escape my lips using my fan. The duke’s daughter vs. the baron’s daughter (LOL). When I looked around, I realized that a majority of the young ladies present were also hiding their faces behind their fans. I felt a sense of solidarity.

The perpetrator (the duke’s daughter) and the victim (the baron’s daughter). No matter how you look at it, the victim can’t compete. Rather, the victim (Maria-san) is rather pitiful, isn’t she?

What is His Highness trying to do by saying such things? But, really, His Highness is also pitiful.

Irene-sama stared down His Highness with an icy look as he tried to desperately counter. I sympathized with him a little.

Indeed, His Highness has been so affectionate with Maria-san that Irene-sama had accused him of being unfaithful. He originally brought Maria-san to parties, even though he had a fiancée, and at school she was in Irene’s shadow (not the other way around, sadly).

Irene-sama telling Maria-san to be mindful when with other people’s fiancés is completely valid.

But, that fiancé isn’t beside her…

As expected, when you look behind Irene-sama, you can see a number of high-ranking noblemen from our kingdom and abroad glaring at His Highness with eyes communicating that they wanted to murder him.

Well, it’s a famous story after all.

The rumors about His Highness’ unfaithful behavior (though, rather than rumors it was more like the truth) were pretty recent but since Irene-sama was a child she has been very, very friendly with these noblemen and royals.

In addition, though Irene-sama is amazingly beautiful and clever, her behavior to His Highness has always been cold. It is said that she often asks to break off her engagement with him.

She was surrounded by excellent and handsome lords, while she hated her fiancé. Even if you were not His Highness you would definitely want to run away to somewhere else.

With that said, couldn’t you have done this in secret? Ah, I want to go home already!!

“Moreover!! You’ve pushed Maria down the stairs!!” His Highness shouted loudly enough for all to hear.

Ahーーare you serious? If you can prove that, then it doesn’t matter if she’s a Duke’s daughter or not. Aristocrats have to maintain their reputation after all. If one commits heinous acts then they will be punished: if one rebels, for example, their territory will be taken away, they will have to return their title to the kingdom, and they will become a commoner.

It’s a hard world, after all. Well, this would only be if someone could ‘prove’ it without a reasonable doubt.

His Imperial Highness (the prince of a neighboring state), a margrave, the head of the kingdom’s knights…there were many of them, but anyway, the point is that Irene-sama – who is famous for being supported by such individuals – has no reason to risk it all by making such a mistake.

By the way, the law of our kingdom is ‘we do not punish with mere suspicions alone.’

I wonder if he is going to be disinherited. My sympathies to His Highness, the prince.

“Daughter of Count Talbot, Rururia!!”

“Eeh, yees??!”

Huh? What, what? I let out a strange noise because I had been called out to so suddenly.

Hello, I am Ruruia Talbot. What is it???

As His Highness was calling me for some reason, I had no choice but to go towards the stage.

“Rururia-jyou! Now, please tell me everything honestly!!”

In this kind of atmosphere, it’s not like I could say that I didn’t know anything. For now, let’s say something ambiguous to try and evade the situation!

“Y-yes…”

“There’s no need to hold back because Irene is a Duke’s daughter. You can tell me the truth.”

Huh? What?? What ‘truth’ was he talking about exactly?? Even though you’re on the verge of being disinherited. What am I supposed to say here???

“That’s right! Didn’t you see Irene-sama pushing me down the stairs?”

Maria-san looks up at me with tears in her eyes. I’m a woman though…no that’s not what’s important!!

N-NICE!! Maria-san!!

I see now, I’ve been called here to give eyewitness testimony!

Eh? But I haven’t seen anything though?? When exactly are you talking about??

“Last month, didn’t you see it happen at the eastern tower?”

Eeh!! Can Maria-san perhaps read my mind?!?! What a scary child!!

However, I really don’t remember anything…but I can’t say that after all, can I? That’s because…His Highness is looking at me with an amazing glint in his eyes from behind Maria-san.

Even if it’s a rotten dragon…rather, even though he’s probably going to be disinherited after this, he’s still this kingdom’s prince after allーー.

I wonder how long this will take to wrap up. And I mean, really, just how opportunistic were these people?

Wow, wow, wow.

I’ve never felt such killing intent since I was born. It’s scary!! This was the look I was getting from the captain of the knights! He’s doing this even though I’m a lady! I feel like I’m going to be murdered!

Apparently, whether he’s a knight or not, he’s just a man in front of the woman that he loves. *Sniffle*

I swallowed my scream and apologized to His Highness.

“I’m sorry, Your Highness, I didn’t see anything.”

Yes, I’ve wrapped this up quickly. I’m sorry, Your Highness. That person is way too scary.

“D-don’t lie!!”

“Your Highness, if I had witnessed such a thing then I would have immediately reported it to the school,” I replied rather indifferently.

Oh, the murderous look has weakened a little bit. I was really scaredーーー! Father, Mother, Big Brother, I want to go homeーー!

“T-that’s a lie!! Irene must be threatening you!!”

Maria-san, your act is falling apart. Abandoning it is definitely a bad move.

“Even if you say something like that…”

“Because! When it happened, I was worried and we went to the infirmary together!”

Huh? The infirmary? With Maria-san? In the east tower…

“Ahーーーー!!”

I’ve remembered! Ah, I feel really refreshed!

For some reason, Irene-sama seemed startled by my shout and her face had turned blue.

Why???

In contrast to Irene-sama, Maria-san nodded with a big smile on her face when I seemed to have remembered.

Yes, yes! I feel refreshed as well! So, I answer with a smile.

“We’re talking about that time when Maria-san fell down, right?”

“Eh?”

“Hah?”

“Aah??”

That was Irene-sama, His Highness and Maria-san, in that order. Oh my, Maria-san’s totally let the cat out of the bag.

“I’ve remembered! That was mean, Maria-san. You said Irene-sama pushed you down the stairs, so I couldn’t remember what you were talking about at all.”

Maria rushes towards me, who is all smiles.

“T-that’s the time I mean! That’s when I was pushed down by Irene!”

“Eh? Were you with Irene-sama at the time? Unfortunately, I didn’t notice.”

Maria-san stared at me blankly for a moment before deciding to go through with the rest of the act, “Perhaps she couldn’t be seen, but it was certainly Irene who pushed me down the stairs.”

“That’s impossible.”

When I responded rather straightforwardly, Maria glared at me, her face filled with anger…Eh, is that an okay expression for a maiden to make??

“That’s because I was walking behind Maria-san, so it’s impossible for Irene-sama to have pushed you down the stairs without me seeing her.”

No matter how hard they tried, it was useless. Both His Highness and Maria-san lost their will and it seemed that their souls were escaping their body via their mouths.

With that, this farce was promptly over.

Summary: After being introduced to my prospective fiance, the Crown Prince, I recall my past life.






Shiny, fluffy, and soft-looking honey-colored hair that’s paired with violet eyes. I realized it the moment that the young man in front of me smiled gently and introduced himself.

“I am Leonhardt von Vanstein.”

Oh, I’m dead.

In the blink of an eye, I understood the information rapidly flowing into my mind. I had fallen in love with this beautiful man in front of me. Or, should I say that I remember falling in love with him. I’m sure that my face right now looked similar to that of a Tibetan fox’s.

I am Lucie von Schönburg. At sixteen years old, I am the eldest daughter of Earl Schönburg. Even though I’m an Earl’s daughter now, I remember a previous life as well. I was an ordinary woman living in Japan; a nation which does not exist in this world. Of course, this doesn’t mean that I’ve remembered all of my previous life, but I’ve recalled a crucially important memory in this place. It felt like I was doused with ice water.

Understandably, the beautiful young man in front of me was confused by the sudden change in my demeanor. His angelic smile waned and a suspicious look crossed his face. Noticing this, I hurriedly raised the ends of my skirt in a curtsy.

“…Please pardon my rudeness, Your Highness Prince Leonhardt. My name is Lucie von Schönburg.”

Thanks to the etiquette training drilled into me from an early age, I believe I was able to greet him properly even though my hands were shaking. I was full of emotions that I could not reveal on my face. He, who had just turned seventeen, was the first prince of our country, while I was a prospective fiancee.

This was our first meeting as engagement candidates, but considering the prince’s earlier expression, I might not have left a good impression. Well, maybe that was for the best though.

Why? This is where my previous memories become important. In my past life – which could be called unremarkable and plain at best – I enjoyed the single life with all my might and playing otome games became my mental oasis.

One such game was a fantasy in a medieval European setting where magic existed. I remember the contents well. I’ll omit some details because otherwise the story will become too long, but what’s important is that Prince Leonhardt is the game’s main capture target, while Lucie – daughter of Earl Schönburg – was his villainess fiancee who harasses the heroine in Leonhardt’s route.

In a nutshell, the game-version of Lucie was terrible. She’s terrible to the heroine throughout, but above all her endings are terrible. After the condemnation event in the True Ending, she tried to kill the heroine by burning her in her dress before falling off the balcony to her own death. Even in the Bad End, where she successfully drives away the heroine, she is captured by the heroine’s step-brother and exiled. Though exile was certainly better than death, there was a sentence in that ending implying that she would be attacked by a thief during the journey.

Furthermore, whether the heroine chooses the prince or not, Lucie could still be killed. There were such bonus deaths on the other capture targets’ routes. This was the worst.

I’ve become Lucie, who is destined to die like that, and the prince – His Royal Highness Leonhardt – was in front of me himself. Fortunately, I’m still only a fiancee candidate. Besides, he doesn’t have a great impression of me from my introduction. If we don’t become engaged, my future may change.

The reason Lucie became his fiancee is because when she met the prince for the first time, they took a walk together in the courtyard and there was an assassination attempt on the prince’s life. Lucie intervened and protected the prince, but was injured. She was left with a scar and using this, Lucie – who had fallen in love with the prince at first sight – urged her father to push the engagement forward. As a result, she became the prince’s fiancee. Due to this the prince treated Lucie like an eyesore. Lucie was arrogant and tied him to her using her scar as a pretext. As a result, she was not liked by him.

For me, I believe Prince Leonhardt to be a good man, so I want him to be happy. It’d be a pity to tie him to Lucie. The heroine who he will meet next year will surely make him happier. I don’t want to die, so I want to withdraw now.

It’s okay, I can still leave. You are still safe. You can decline to go any further saying you feel sick. Just as I thought to say this, my eyes met the prince’s and he smiled. I was momentarily shocked, something surely reflected on my face.

“Then, allow me to lead the way.”

“Eh…yes…”

I’d been so caught up in my thoughts that I hadn’t listened to more than half of the prince’s story. I don’t know what’s going on, but when I reply in the affirmative the prince smiles again. It’s a little different from the smile before, it was mysterious. The prince pulled me along by the hand and I missed the opportunity to feign illness and return to the main hall.

As I was pondering my next move, we arrived at the courtyard. Wait, isn’t this the time and place where the attempted assassination takes place? At once, I tried to say that I was heading back, but became worried about what to do if the prince was indeed assassinated because Lucie wasn’t there. The excuses got stuck in my throat and didn’t come out…I was in trouble.

I’ve come this far. I don’t want to feel pain, but I should quietly let myself be injured. After confirming that the prince is safe, I’ll return using the injury as an excuse. I mean, as long as I don’t say that I want to get engaged, I’ll be fine.

Even though a scar will be left, it’ll be a small incision on my right arm. It won’t hurt too much, hopefully…I’ll just have to put up with it a little.

As we conversed, Prince Leonhardt guided me to the rose garden. The scenery that I’d previously seen from the game CGs was breathtaking. Red, white, and yellow roses were in full bloom. Perhaps because it was my favorite color, but the red roses shined the most and caught my eye.

“…This is amazing.”

I forgot my fate as I stared at the scenery, but when I turned to look at the prince who was smiling next to me, I quickly regained focus.

“…Your Highness…is something the matter?”

“No, it’s just that Lady Lucie is an expressive person, you see.”

For a second, I gape at his words and expression before shyly turning away red-faced. If the memories of my previous life had not returned, I would surely have not made such blunders tonight. Lucie is arrogant, but her aristocratic etiquette was flawless. I was disappointed at the impression I was leaving – with awkward expressions not befitting a noble’s daughter. It’s more convenient this way, I suppose, but it leaves a complicated feeling.

“Please forget that just now…”

“…Fufu.”

Prince Leonhardt appeared interested, laughing a little. I realized in my heart that I would not get such a chance again and so continued looking around. I like roses very much, both as Lucie and in my previous life. So, I was watching the scenery with a smile, but quickly hurried to hide the lax expression with my hand, worried that I would be seen by the prince. Around that same time, I saw something shining near the edge of my field of vision. As I wondered what it could be, I was struck by a mysterious sensation that was hard to explain and threw myself into Prince Leonhardt’s chest.

For the daughter of an aristocrat to suddenly cling onto him, Prince Leonhardt went wide-eyed in astonishment. I didn’t move to hug him as some kind of seduction. I just felt in that moment that I had to do this. It seems that my judgement was spot on as I felt an intense pain in my right shoulder.

“…Huh?”

My right shoulder was burning in pain. Just as I was about to fall to my knees, I was saved by a hug. I could see Prince Leonhardt’s worried expression, the cloudless blue sky behind him, and the bright petals of the red roses.

When I focused my consciousness on my shoulder, I realized an unknown substance was on me. I was able to protect Prince Leonhardt from the arrow aimed at him and he seemed to finally understand the situation. I was relieved, but a bit resentful that the injury seemed bigger than I’d thought it would be.

“…Your Highness…you’re safe…thank goodness…”

“…”

Prince Leonhardt’s beautiful violet eyes were wide open and I was horrified thinking about what might have happened if I hadn’t been here. Perhaps because of such fears, my whole body trembled and I felt a strong chill throughout my body.

“…Ah…”

Suddenly, everything went pitch black. I couldn’t see anything and it felt like I was thrown into a very cold darkness. There were rushed footsteps and angry words. My limbs were heavy and I couldn’t even move a single finger. When I say that it’s scary, he helps. Gradually I became unable to even move my lips, and I sunk into the darkness.




When I next woke up, I was in a luxurious room at the palace. There was no pain in my right shoulder, which should have been unbearable. Apparently I had lost consciousness for an entire month.

The first thing I wanted to do was bathe. The fact that it had been a month was astonishing enough and now I wanted to clean myself as soon as possible.

It seems that the arrow, which was fired to assassinate Prince Leonhardt, was laced with poison. Apparently, I had hovered between life and death for a while. When I heard that, I cried in gratitude that I had made it out alive.

Lucie shouldn’t have been so badly injured. Fortunately, Prince Leonhardt immediately provided the finest medical treatment possible. Thanks to that, the wound had been closed and the poison removed. I was completely healed and there seemed to be no complications. However, originally there was supposed to be only a slight scar on my right arm, but my actions had complicated the situation and the scar behind my right shoulder was larger and more visible.

…I wonder if I will remain single in this lifetime.

It would be difficult for the recipient of such a scar to get engaged. Though the wound was healed, the consequences remained. I threw myself deeper into the bed and let out a deep exhale.

“…I wish I had been born a man.”

I wouldn’t have been injured had I been born male, because I wouldn’t have needed to have been at such a location in the first place.

Looking into the mirror, I found a beautiful woman with silver hair and red eyes looking back miserably. Unlike the heroine she doesn’t give off an aura of wanting to protect her, but she’s quite high-spec. If I had been this beautiful in my previous life, I would have at least wanted a lover.

As I thought this, someone knocked on the door. I told them to enter without thinking and there appeared Prince Leonhardt. He hurriedly raised his hands to indicate that I stop moving as I was about to get out of bed.

“Your Highness…please forgive my current appearance.”

“No, not at all. I’m sorry for rushing over, but I couldn’t stand still when I heard that your consciousness had returned.”

Prince Leonhardt approached the bedside and took my right hand as he stared at me. My heart throbbed. This seems careless, but honestly His Highness was my favorite character in my past life. I fell in love again at first sight right before the memories of my previous life resurfaced, so I can’t help but be excited as he stares at me with such worry whilst holding my hand. I felt a nosebleed coming so I quickly covered my nose and mouth with my free hand. I was truly glad that I had taken a bath before His Highness approached me.

“Lady Lucie, you are my savior. I am deeply grateful to you.”

“…Your Highness’ safety is the most important.”

“But a big scar was left on you.”

“Please don’t worry about that. Compared to protecting Your Highness…”

It’s true. A scar is nothing compared to someone’s life. I’m grateful I was able to survive but I’m not completely confident that I will be able to do the same thing if the situation repeats itself. I’m loyal to the royal family, but I don’t want anyone to think I’m that loyal. Unfortunately, apparently His Highness seems to think that I am.

The next moment, Prince Leonhardt was kneeling in front of me, grasping my right hand. I couldn’t take my eyes off of him.

“Lady Lucie, will you marry me?”

“…Huh?!”

In the original story, using the scar she received during the assassination attempt, Lucie forced an engagement with the prince. However, I’ve been unconscious until quite recently and haven’t had the chance to speak with father about any of this. So, why am I being proposed to by Prince Leonhardt, who is supposed to be against the engagement in the first place?

“…If you’re taking responsibility for the wound, please don’t worry about it.”

“Of course I’ll take responsibility, but above all I was fascinated by you.”

Why did this happen? Was it because of my earlier actions? Did something strike a chord with him? If so, what was it? Even in my confusion, I managed to remember that an engagement with Prince Leonhardt was basically a death flag. I have to refuse this at all costs.

“…Your Highness, about that, I…”

“I’ve already spoken to Earl Schönburg. All you have to do is agree.”

I gaped in shock before stiffening. Unfortunately, he seems to have surrounded me while I was asleep. Even if I speak to father, there’s no way to refuse an engagement with the royal family no matter how much I dislike it. After all, daughters of aristocrats ultimately get no say when it comes to engagements.

Oh, I’m dead.

This time, for sure, my face looked like a Tibetan fox…but I soon turned red. Again, though it’s really careless, in my previous life Prince Leonhardt was my favorite. I can’t help but feel like I was ascending to heaven in joy at this situation where I’m being proposed to by this beautiful prince.

It’s not like it’s a situation I can refuse anyway, so I’ll just have to think about how I can avoid the death flag in the future.

Let’s not think too deeply about it right now. I nodded a little, my face still bright red. Prince Leonhardt began kissing my fingertips. His Highness is sitting on the bed as I look away and attempt to suppress a potentially fatal nosebleed.

“Your Highness…about that…”

“Lucie, call me Löwe.”

I’m confused by the sudden lack of distance. I didn’t have a boyfriend in my previous life, and in this one I’d lived as an Earl’s daughter so I’m confused about how to react at times like this. Speaking of, His Highness in the game was quite difficult to capture to begin with. But…I remember when I stopped pursuing he came back more aggressively than ever. Does that mean that I, the villainess, have captured Prince Leonhardt’s heart before the game has even begun? That Prince Leonhardt that was said to be impregnable? Impossible.

“But Your Highness, this…”

“Löwe.”

…You’re pushy, aren’t you!

“…Löwe.”

I was swallowed by the momentum. When he was called as he wished to be, his smile widened even further. I felt like I was going to collapse, but His Highness’ next words brought me back to reality.

“Could I see your wounds?”

“H-huh…?”

Isn’t this too much? The wound, where the bow and arrow aimed at His Highness pierced, was on my right shoulder. Rather, it’s slightly above my shoulder blades, so it’s not visible while I’m wearing clothes. It’d be impossible to see if I didn’t undress.

Is that actually possible? No, it’s impossible. For the time being, I’d assented to the engagement and become his fiancee, but that didn’t mean I can reveal myself to him right away.

“…You were unconscious after the arrow struck your shoulder. Could I just reassure myself that you are safe?” His Highness asked with an uneasy expression.

It’s not like I can refuse him if he looks like that. I’m aware of it, but I’ve lost to His Highness’ pushiness, so I nod.

I sat upright with my back turned to His Highness. He swept my waist-length silver hair away, so that it was now in front of my shoulders. I hesitated at his gaze, but realized His Highness wouldn’t back down until I assented to his request. Excuse me, but I don’t really want to show this to anyone, you know? But this is His Highness, so I untie the ribbons at the front of my dress. I then loosened the cloth around my right shoulder and revealed the scar. When I thought about being watched, I burned red with shame. I’m sure my ears too were red.

“Lucie…may I touch it?”

“Eh?”

Not understanding what he was saying, I fumbled my response. Even as I responded, I couldn’t completely wrap my head around his words.

Hii…”

Though there was no pain, I trembled from a mysterious sensation. Before I knew it, His Highness’ left arm was wrapped around my waist and I was hugged from behind. My body, which was not accustomed at all to the opposite sex, froze up. However, His Highness did not seem to care and instead traced the scar several times with his fingertips.

“Lucie…I’m sorry, I’m so sorry…”

“…Ah, Your Highness, such a thing-”

“Löwe.”

“…Löwe, this is…”

I tried asking him to stop, but instead felt his soft golden hair on my neck and flinched. Suddenly, something warm and rough brushes over the scar.

“Huh?!”

It was easy to understand that it had been his tongue. Ah, I exhaled at being licked and my body started to feel hot with shame.

“It was supposed to be me…I’m sorry…”

“No, no. I’m just glad that you were safe, so…hii!”

At being relentlessly licked, I’d let out a strange noise. Unfortunately, it wasn’t particularly sexy.

This was unpleasant. I turned my head to look back at His Highness, but froze. His face was so close to mine that it made me involuntarily hold my breath.

“Lucie…”

If you say my name that enthusiastically, I’ll be completely defeated, you know? I’ll lose if I fall in love, but I can’t resist when His Highness touches my lips. Seeing his beautiful face so close up, my eyes fluttered shut, while his tongue continued to trace the scar on my shoulder. When I opened my mouth, he invaded with his tongue, it tangling with my own before exploring the inside of my mouth.

Hmmmmmmmm…”

I was surprised but I entwined my tongue with his. He sucked at it from different angles and the deep kiss made me feel like I was being devoured. Before I knew it, I’d lost the strength in  my body and pressed my back against His Highness’ broad chest.

I felt feverish at this first experience, only vaguely understanding that I was being kissed. I didn’t know that it would feel so sweet and pleasant.

…No, this is…no!

I momentarily snap out of the fog in surprise. These are two people – a man and a woman – in a closed room, on the only bed. Lust was visible in His Highness’ gaze as he continued to kiss me.

“We can’t do this anymore!”

“It’s okay, no one will come in.”

His words made me feel a sense of crisis. Had he been intending to do this from the beginning? Although I’m completely cured, thanks to the finest treatment available, I was still unwell. And even if we were engaged, it was just established a few moments ago. Isn’t he being too hasty?

As I was thinking of this, I was pushed onto my back. I laid down, using both my hands to cover my face. I was in a situation I had only dreamed of before as His Highness leaned over me.

“Your Highness! Such things have a proper order!”

“Löwe.”

“Löwe, I want to wait until we’re married!”

“…Then, let’s keep our chastity.”

Prince Leonhardt declares. Oh no, this is not good. When I look up at him in tears, His Highness meets my eyes with lowered eyebrows as if he were troubled. Honestly, that expression is foul play.

“The moment you looked at me and smiled after being hit by the arrow, I felt like I was struck by lightning.”

I don’t even remember if I had been smiling because I was so out of it at the time. I think I was just relieved that he was safe, but at the same time was afraid of dying. But, just what did His Highness feel that led to this situation?

“When you had tears in your eyes and asked for help, I wanted to keep you safe in this world forever. I strongly felt I’d regret it if I ever let you go.”

I had certainly asked for help, I can remember that much. So, I can understand the first part of his words, but just what does he mean he’d regret it if I left? …Is this current situation related to that? If I nod to his confession, my neck might be in danger. Besides, if I end up staying with His Highness tonight then it’s all over.

“…But I’m alright now.”

“It’s only okay because the wound was healed and poison drained immediately,” is how he responds.

I’d heard that I’d received the highest quality medical treatment in the country, but if I think about it like that then it might have been Prince Leonhardt’s healing magic, which is the best in the kingdom. Wait, does that mean you have already seen my skin?

“That…that…”

“Lucie.”

Anyway, I searched for words of avoidance but couldn’t think of anything after my name was called so sweetly. I closed my mouth and my lips, which had turned bright red, remained silent until they were again claimed by His Highness’ lips.

The second kiss is breathtaking and suffocating at once, but I can’t help but feel the sweetness behind it.

“…Hah…”

Our lips separated and he pushed a silver thread of hair from his mouth. He looked down at me with an ecstatic expression. Sex appeal was leaking off of him and there was a bulge in his pants.

As I was fascinated by him, my clothes – except my underwear – were quickly taken off. I hurriedly hid my breasts with both hands. However, when His Highness also took off his shirt, my hands jumped to cover my eyes and nose while forgetting to hide the rest of me.

His Highness gave a small smile and reached towards my unprotected chest. My breasts, humble enough that they would fit into one of his hands, were kneaded. The tip of his hard cock made itself known by pressing against my stomach. Though my lips were pressed together tightly, my voice unconsciously leaked as he used the tip of his tongue on a nipple.

“…Ah.

His Highness seemed pleased with my reaction and his hand pinched a taut nipple as he lapped at the other. His touch and tongue twisted me into a sensation that I’d never felt before.

“…Hmmnoahh…”

My hips twitched and my thighs rubbed together without me realizing.I felt something between my legs, a chill running down my back as His Highness noticed the change immediately. Pushing himself up, he narrowed his eyes at me and laughed a little. As naturally as possible, he touched my lower body. He traced the secret place, which I had never touched, through my underwear. My eyes fluttered open at that sensation.

“…You’re wet.”

With just those two words, I was so ashamed that my face was dyed red. The part he’d touched was wet and I was so embarrassed that I wanted to die. When I turned away, about to cry, my underwear was taken off. As it was my last line of defense, I screamed a little.

“Your Highness…are you being serious?!”

“Löwe.”

“…Löwe, is this really alright…hii?!”

His Highness was relaxed, while I felt like screaming and turning away. I wanted to scream at the symbol of masculinity around his lower abdomen, but the noise died in my throat as I felt the honey overflowing from me. He grabbed me by the thighs and spread me wide open. I had to stiffen myself so that I didn’t really scream.

“This is no good…”

“…Don’t worry.”

It isn’t going to be alright at all, though? Besides, wasn’t my chastity supposed to be protected? There were many points that I wanted to complain about, but before I knew it, he had licked the tears which had accumulated in the corners of my eyes. He whispered that I was cute, directly into my ear, and I was blown away. At the same time, he rubbed at my core, which was overflowing with honey. Situated between my open legs, His Highness stroked his dick up and down. A clear liquid began to form at the tip.

Hah…hah…

I couldn’t take my eyes off of His Highness, whose beautiful face was distorted with lust. His cheeks were slightly red and his lips were open, allowing a rough exhale. He smiled sweetly at me when my eyes met his violet ones.

Then his cock rubbed against my core, shaking my entire body. He held my right hand and his grip continued to strengthen throughout.

“W-what…”

“No, don’t leave me. It’s alright…let’s feel good together.”

Something hot was rubbing against my most sensitive place, making my lower body ache. He slowly rubbed his cock up and down and a lewd sound reached my ears. I wanted to cover my ears, but couldn’t because both my right and left hand was entwined with His Highness’ hands. Every time he rubbed at my core, it tightened and a terrifying pleasure pierced my body. An incredibly sweet voice leaked out as a result.

“…Ah, aah…”

He grabbed me by the waist as I was about to run away, the pleasure making me tremble. His slow movements gradually became more intense and the sounds of his cock hitting my core echoed throughout the room. Honestly, it was no different than just inserting it at this point.

Ah, aahh…Löwe, hya…oh, oh...”

Between the overflowing me and the hotness rubbing at my core, I could only tremble, drunk with pleasure and moaning continuously. His Highness was breathless, but he showed no signs of holding back.

“…Haah, Lucie…”

Naahii, hyaa…what are you–ahhhh…!!”

At that moment, my core was rubbed against harshly before I felt something gently push against me. My eyes rolled to the back of my head as my vision became pure white. My hips moved unconsciously and my entire body trembled.

After reaching my climax, His Highness sat down, letting out a low moan.

Nearing his climax, His Highness let out low moans before sitting up again. I’d reached my high a few moments ago, and now it was his turn as a cloudy liquid began covering my stomach. As I gazed at it dreamily, the substance splattered onto my breasts. I lost consciousness at that moment due to fatigue and a sleepiness that enveloped my entire body.




The next time I woke up, we had already gone past the point of me running away. The castle’s outer moat had already been closed so I could not return home.

Hey, wasn’t I supposed to be the villainess who was condemned and killed?



Translator’s Note: First of all, a huge shout out to my new editor and proofreader slothful_rabbit!! I honestly could not have done it without you (ノ´▽`)ノ{+++THANK YOU+++}ヽ(´▽`ヽ).

So, this is definitely a more generic villainess reincarnation, like tbh I couldn’t exactly pinpoint what made Leonhardt fall in love? Her expressiveness that he witnessed for a few seconds? The fact she took an arrow for him? But is that love? But ah well, such is the world of an otoge isekai~

Oh, could anyone tell me what looks like a Tibetan fox means? This confused me a little and it shows up in the sequel too.

We’re working on the – much shorter – sequel to this right now. Should be out in the next week or so. Please look forward to it!

Thank you everyone for your patience m(。_。;))m. I hope to be more active from now on! ˙˚ʚ(´◡`)ɞ˚˙

The Yandere Prince’s Fleeing Cinderella [Chapter One]

Title: The Yandere Prince’s Fleeing Cinderella

Original: ヤンデレ王子の逃げ腰シンデレラ

*Had a little trouble with the title. Its more literally The Yandere Prince’s Preparing to Flee Cinderella but I took some liberties.

Author: 柳月ほたる

Link: https://novel18.syosetu.com/n8639ds/

Summary:

The plain office lady Suzu has fallen into a one-sided love with the kinder than anyone, super-handsome Chief Serizawa. Popular among the female staff, he’s nicknamed Prince Serizawa.

Though she had decided to mind her own social position by ending it with just longing, one day during overtime she witnesses Serizawa’s outrageous behavior.

An odd love comedy about a good natured OL trying to draw back and a yandere boss who will absolutely not let her go.






Chapter One: I Can’t Become Cinderella

In the course of one’s life, there are several turning points.

For example, some might say life events like entering university, finding a job or getting married. Others might point to an encounter with a friend, teacher or even a book.

In some cases, only when you look back do you realize “that was a turning point”.

Turning points vary from person to person, but for the heroine of our story – Takano Suzu – it was a single drinking straw.


◈◈◈

It was a Wednesday near the end of May, around the time people were slowly getting sweatier. Pushing herself out of the cramped and crowded train, Suzu disembarked to the platform.

After carefully checking that her hair hadn’t become disheveled, she fixed her bag onto her shoulder. Then, she sighed.

“I’m tired as expected…I should move closer to the neighborhood.”

It was her fifth year at the company. She commuted to work at the same time everyday, but had yet to become accustomed to the train. Naturally, a seat couldn’t be found so easily on such a crowded train, so she typically stood while taking care not to stand too close to strangers.

When the train shook and swayed, the high heels she’d chosen for the sake of appearance proved difficult to balance in. They’d been purchased last week in an effort to make her short legs seem just a bit longer, but she should have chosen heels that were a little easier to walk in afterall.

She carried this small regret in her heart and climbed the staircase headed towards the concourse. On the wall of the walkway, she noticed an enormous cosmetics advertisement. It hadn’t been there the previous day and read 『You Too Can Be Cinderella』featuring a sparkling photo of a popular, young actress.

It really wasn’t convincing coming from an actress who had always been beautiful, was it? The ill-tempered thought appeared and disappeared from her mind.

“Cinderella, huh…?”

Cinderella, an existence women across the world yearned to be.

Bullied by her stepmother and stepsisters, she changed into a beautiful dress with the help of a witch and took a horse-drawn carriage – transformed from a pumpkin – to the royal ball. There, she and the prince fell in love at first sight and married. It was that kind of simple story. That was the template of Cinderella’s tale.

However, the ordinary OL who was able to evaluate herself and others wondered…

After the story concluded with a「Happy Ending」and she married the prince, was Cinderella really happy? She hadn’t gotten much of an education during her servant-like years, so was she not bewildered at suddenly being thrown into upper class life? Could she handle the people who swarmed around her for political power? Did she not worry for even a moment about the disparity between herself and her husband, the prince?

Yes, each person had a rank that suited them.

For example, Suzu was not too fat or skinny and had a face in the middle of the middle pack. Her hair had never been dyed and she wore clothes giving off an air of cleanliness while ignoring current fashion trends.

Anyone who saw her would say that a prince would not suit such an ordinary person. In a fairy tale, she would be Town Girl B and have a single line at most. Though she had the subtle youthfulness of a twenty-six year old, due to her quiet personality she hadn’t had any remarkable love stories to date. When you become a withered woman that has never had a boyfriend, you tend to shy away from too gorgeous a man.

Therefore, Suzu had long since drawn up a life plan befitting her stature. Marry an ordinary man, buy an ordinary apartment and live a generally steady life. That had always been the plan.

However, Suzu was currently in love with a “Prince” who absolutely didn’t suit her. He was someone above the clouds that Suzu couldn’t reach no matter how far she extended her hand. Compared to him, I’m like a used tissue. If anything, I should apologize in dogeza for liking him.

When speaking of what one is able to do, it is better to understand one’s position and hide such feelings. ‘Maybe these feelings are mutual’, there’s no way that I would confess under such a megaton level misunderstanding. Suzu is spending her days thankful for just being able to support him at work.

“Fua…”

She contemplated these incoherent thoughts at length and stifled a yawn. She was a little sleepy after studying for a professional qualification exam the previous night. And today was Wednesday. There were three days until the weekend so it was a morning filled with mental fatigue.

“Good morning Suzu-chan. What’s wrong? That was a big yawn.”

Someone clapped her shoulder at that moment and Suzu’s heart gave a jump. Confused, she looked to her side and found a person she recognized well.

“C-chief Serizawa…?!”

The voice had come from a smiling man: Suzu’s direct superior Chief Serizawa. Suzu’s secret “Prince”.

He had good taste today as well, looking especially cool in that smart suit. Before she could rejoice, she remembered that he had just seen that huge yawn and her cheeks burned in embarrassment.

“You were up studying late into the night, weren’t you. What was it this time?”

His pale brown eyes peered at her gently and her cheeks steadily grew warmer. If her heart rate were to be measured right now, it would surely be beyond the upper limit. Her staying up late having been seen through, Suzu faltered in her reply.

“Well, uh…it was business law. When I’m checking contracts, I often think that I need more knowledge…”

Suzu’s work was mostly sales and clerical, but the amount she needed to learn seemed infinite. Even though it was her fifth year, there was still a lot to learn so she studied steadily at home every night. Currently, she was on the last leg of revising for the business law certification examination.

Serizawa frowned a little at her response.

“Suzu-chan’s hardworking nature is your strong point, but mind your health. Don’t overdo it and hurt yourself. Make sure to maintain regular sleeping hours. Understand?”

“Y-yes.”

“Un, good reply.”

He praised, patting her head. Suzu squeaked and drew back.

To Serizawa, she was just a subordinate. If anything, he would treat even an elementary schooler from his neighborhood the same way. But for someone like Suzu, who did not think of him as “just” a superior, it was hard to endure.

Stay in control, stay in control, she warned herself.




“Then, I’m in a bit of a hurry. Sorry.”

“N-no! I’m sorry to take up your time.”

Serizawa looked at his wristwatch before lightly lifting his right hand, then disappeared into the crowd. However, right before disappearing he said: “I’ve been meaning to tell you since Monday, but those new shoes really suit you.” Suzu’s cheeks were on the verge of exploding. By no means had she thought that he would notice her shoes.

Like that, Suzu’s heart had been stirred up by the “Prince” – Chief Serizawa Toru – who belonged to the paper and pulp division of a major general trading company. Gentle light brown eyes peeked past moderately long bangs. Their overall faint color gave off a translucent feel, truly like an orthodox prince.

He always smiled calmly and was fair to everyone. She had never seen him raising his voice at anyone.

Moreover, it was difficult to imagine just how hard he worked from his gentle atmosphere and sweet features. It was no exaggeration to say that the paper and pulp division that Suzu belonged to was pulled along by Serizawa. Many successful deals were made by utilizing his personal connections around the world.

Furthermore, even though he was more excellent than anyone, he never looked down on people. No one would have blamed him for bragging a little but he was never arrogant or pompous or conceited. He was always humble and sincere to everyone from subordinate to superior.

Yes, Chief Serizawa was a great person. He was a person that Suzu was no match for; a god-like existence.

Thirty years old, unmarried and without a girlfriend. Due to those circumstances, he had many fans at the company. Female staff even nicknamed him “Prince Serizawa”. After Section Chief Mayama of the construction machinery division got married three months ago, he became even more popular.

Therefore, Suzu knew her love was fruitless. I should be content supporting him at work as a member of the same division. Plain and ordinary Town Girl B should be satisfied with plain and ordinary Town Boy A.

Even though she understood that her love was not to be realized, the feelings wouldn’t dissipate.

I like him, I like him, I really can’t help but like him. I understand my own place, but I wish to be allowed to carry these feelings at least. I’ll be content just staying by his side, she explained inside her heart.



Notes: Honestly, this probably has more than the average number of inconsistencies. I’m really sorry about that ≦(._.)≧ The language is a bit more advanced than usual – hope it’s not just me? – so I relied on machine translations correspondingly. Might or might not do chapter two, but that’ll probably be the last of it.

If anyone wants to pick this up, please feel free!! Just drop me a line so we don’t overlap with the next chapter (unlikely), but more because I want to read it (´∀`) This is R18, in case that motivates anyone~! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Also, a little rushed on the proofreading, so please let me know if you spot any errors.

Title: I’ve Been Reincarnated as this Game’s Villainess, I’ll Train the Main Capture Target to be a Yandere

Original: 乙女ゲームの悪役キャラに転生したので、メイン攻略対象をヤンデレに調教します。

Author: 黒井雛

Summary:

A transfer student, the heroine of this game, has arrived.

I won’t hand over Tamaki.





Prequel

“――Suzakumiya-sama!! In the cafeteria, the president and a transfer student–!!”

You’ve finally come, transfer student.

I smiled at the breathless student who had rushed to deliver the report.

In this otome game 「Prisoner of the Birdcage」a commoner girl enters a school for the children of the wealthy elite. Due to her attempts in reforming the rampant abuse of power taking place, those in charge fall in love with her. I was reborn as the villainess, Suzakumiya Suzune, whose expulsion is a necessary condition for completing the game.

Reigning at the top of the academy because her family owns the largest corporation among those enrolled, she puts a collar on one of the capture targets – Genbuin Tamaki – whose family cannot stand against hers and humiliates him by making him her dog. A darkness grows in Tamaki because of this humiliation and loneliness from the lack of his family’s love, but he is saved by the heroine and falls obsessively in love with her.

Because I liked Tamaki myself, I couldn’t tolerate such a development and trained him to become obsessed with me instead. So that he could only see me, so that he couldn’t see anyone but me, to act in such a way.

Today, we would see the fruits of my labor.




Entering the cafeteria, I saw that a crowd had gathered at the center of the room. However, a path was made when they noticed me. Truly like a queen…when I think of my own position, such a moniker doesn’t seem incorrect.

The moment I saw what was at the center of the crowd, the corners of my mouth rose.

Tamaki was grabbing the transfer student by her neck while another council member desperately tried to stop him.

“――Tamaki.”

Tamaki, who had ignored the fellow student council member’s voice entirely, turned to look at me when I spoke.

“I don’t know what happened, but I don’t want you acting violently against a girl.”

“…Don’t stop me, Suzune.”

He tightens his grip on the transfer student’s neck and looks at me with bloodshot eyes.

“This one told me to drive you out of the academy!! She said that you were evil!!”

Tamaki’s words are just as expected.

“Yeah, you got angry for me. Thank you.”

Tamaki was not swayed at all by the words of the transfer student. Firstly, that’s the very best outcome.

“However, she’ll die if you don’t stop. I don’t want Tamaki to become a murderer.”

The transfer student’s face had turned a deathly pale, the way she’s opening and closing her mouth looks painful. I don’t really care about her safety, she’s a hindrance after all, but I don’t want Tamaki to become a killer. He clicks his tongue at my words but releases the transfer student, throwing her down. She falls on the floor and the student council officer rushes towards her to look after her. I exclude them from my field of vision and approach Tamaki.

“――Un, Tamaki. Good boy.”

“…What’s with that, treating me like a child or dog.”

I hug Tamaki who has endured so well, he desperately tries to straighten his back as I stroke his head, appearing reluctant to accept my behavior. However, he bends down for me, who can’t completely reach, so deep down he might not be as unwilling as he’s leading others to believe. Not just his heart, I can see his mouth relax.

His jet black hair is soft and smooth to the touch and feels good to stroke. As I stroke his hair, I can feel him also fiddling with mine. His touch is gentle and it feels comfortable. It’s somewhat strange, almost like mutual grooming.

However, our happy time is immediately ruined.

“Stop treating the president like a dog in public, Suzakumiya Suzune!!”

Before I knew it, the transfer student had recovered, raising her voice while glaring at me.

Treating him like a dog――I’m convinced by those words.

This girl is a reincarnated person.

If not, she wouldn’t judge the mere act of stroking someone’s head in such a manner.

“Treating me like a dog…”

In fact, it’s Tamaki who raises his voice, deep with anger.

“Didn’t you just say so yourself?”

“I don’t want to hear it from her. It’s unpleasant from someone I don’t even know.”

“You’re a selfish one, aren’t you.”

He chuckles, unconsciously smiling at that.

――She knows a lot about Tamaki, because she’s a reincarnated person.

I think that, but don’t say anything. And, I’m sure I know more about Tamaki than she does. After all, I’ve been by his side for the last five years. Besides, I love Tamaki much, much more deeply than the transfer student does.

“――Nee, transfer student.”

Unlike the sweet tone I use with Tamaki, I address the transfer student with a voice as cold as absolute zero.

“You’ve been denouncing me and even said that you’ll have me expelled, but what have I done exactly? I knew about you because a common person transferring here is rare, but you and I are meeting for the first time today.”

The game has already been distorted. It’s different from the one a reincarnated person would know. So how is the transfer student going to condemn me?

“Because you treat the student council president like a dog…”

“I’ve never been treated like a dog!! I’m going to kill you, you bitch!!”

“Tamaki, be quiet for a bit…and, what else?”

“You’ve abused your power and thrown this school out of order!!”

The answer is as expected. The transfer student really doesn’t know anything.

“I haven’t done anything. However, if I sometimes get preferential treatment for being a Suzakumiya, is that a crime?”

The Suzakumiya Suzune of the game abused her power in various ways. However, while I put in the utmost effort into crafting a birdcage for Tamaki and myself, I did not do anything like that. At most, I exerted some influence in putting those who either liked Tamaki too much or inconvenienced the two of us in their place.

Ultimately, those students who had transferred out left due to their parents’ decision because they didn’t want to go up against the Suzakumiya family. I didn’t personally have a hand in any of it.

It looks like some of the students that follow me and Tamaki himself, due to his gloomy personality, commit various bad acts from time to time, but I overlook it. Because after all, I love the Tamaki that goes on rampages for my sake. It can’t be helped.

Apart from that, aren’t I a nice person?

I didn’t want to give the transfer student any openings when she arrived.

Fundamentally, I don’t care about any humans that aren’t Tamaki.

Only Tamaki is important. Only he has to stay by my side.

That’s why, I won’t allow the transfer student to steal him away.

I haven’t done anything, but the name Suzakumiya is too powerful. I’m given preferential treatment because of it. Due to this, my companions from less important families abuse the power of the Suzakumiya family. Instead of denying them, I simply accept these privileges without complaining. In a sense, it’s not wrong to say that I am both the origin of and at the top of the school’s caste system.

“――But, fine. If you say my existence is a sin, then I will leave the academy.”

“Suzune!!”

Despite being unable to respond before, the transfer student’s eyes widen, shining with hope at my words. It was Tamaki who raises his voice, heavy with fury and sorrow.

My love increases seeing that face: looking like he’s going to cry, completely unbecoming of someone nicknamed the “Emperor”. His body, that I’m hugging, is trembling.

‘Are you going to leave me behind? Are you going to throw me away?’

His eyes seem to be asking me.

Tamaki is adorable. Lovely. He always has been and always will be.

Does love have a limit?

Every time that I’m with Tamaki I think I’ve reached the limit.

You really are stupid, Tamaki.

I won’t ever be able to let you go.

“But, at that time I’ll take Tamaki with me.”

“――Ee.”

I turn to the transfer student and smile carelessly.

“You can reform the school when I’m no longer here, be loved by those in charge and do whatever you like. Do as you please. I really have no interest…however, you can’t take Tamaki. I won’t let you have him.”

Saying this, I look from the transfer student to Tamaki and back. She gently pinches her cheeks with both hands.

“…Nee, do you hate it?”

I had spoken with conviction before, but now anxiety is seeping in.

“Would you hate transferring to another school with me? Instead of going with me, would you prefer to stay here and continue as the student council president?”

“――There’s no way I’d hate it.”

Tamaki firmly hugs me while responding with the answer that I had wished for.

“No matter where it is…Suzune, if you are there, then I want to be there by your side.”

The answer is as expected. Nevertheless, it makes me want to cry. I’m so happy that I want to cry.

“Thank goodness. …Hey, you understand, right?”

With my hand on Tamaki’s back, I laugh at the transfer student.

“Tamaki is mine…If you try to take him away from me, I’ll use everything in my power to eliminate you. Just remember that.”



The cafeteria went quiet.

Tamaki disentangles from me, before taking my hand and pulling me along. Ready to leave, I want my feet to move faster. I want to be alone with him as soon as possible.

As we turn our backs to the cafeteria, we hear the transfer student yell out.

“President, you are being brainwashed by that woman!! You’re being treated like a dog!! That’s not true love!!”

Those words strike my heart deeply.

“I will free you from that girl! I will save you!”

“――Who asked to be saved?”

Next to me, Tamaki emits a cold voice, the likes of which I’d never heard before.

“If you want to chastise me for acting like a dog, go ahead. If you want to say that I’m brainwashed, go ahead. But I’m happy. I’m happy being by Suzune’s side. Even if it’s wrong, I won’t ask for salvation.”

Tamaki says without so much as glancing at the transfer student and we briskly leave the cafeteria.

“…Nn.”



When we enter Tamaki’s room, he pushes me down on the bed and roughly kisses me.

I understand that he wants me from the bottom of his heart.

I’m happy.

However…

“T-tamaki…”

However, there is something I need to confirm.

“Tamaki, if I, if I were really brainwashing you, what would you do…?”

The transfer student’s words weren’t wrong.

“If it was true that I really induced an obsession with me, what would you do?”

What I had done was by no means correct. I understood that it was a detestable and dastardly act.

Despite that, I want Tamaki. I wish for him to only look at me.

Would he disdain that sort of me?

“…I told you. Even so, I’m happy.”

He instinctively avoids my gaze but grasps my chin, tilting me towards him. I smile at him, full of love.

“It doesn’t matter even if it was brainwashing. For a long time, I was starving for love. I wished for it. I yearned for someone to love me. Suzune. No matter your intentions, you were the one who gave it to me.”

Tears spill from my eyes at his words.

“I love you. I don’t care if it’s different from a normal love. I can’t be separated from you. Even if I am someday ruined, I’ll be happy. If I’m with you, I don’t mind even falling to hell――I love you, Suzune. I love you.”

I was anxious of the transfer student’s arrival. But at the same time, I had been looking forward to it.

Even after she arrived, Tamaki didn’t change. Even in the face of the truth, he told me he loves me.

“Me too. I love you too, Tamaki…”

At this time, Tamaki became all mine. Forever and always, only mine.

And, I had won the gamble.





The birdcage was complete. A sturdy cage that cannot be broken from the inside or outside. A birdcage for two, where only two people exist.

“Nee…Tamaki.”

During a moment of intimacy, I stroked his adam’s apple.

“Let’s…put a collar here. A leather one with my name engraved.”

For the color, black would be good. Surely it would look good on Tamaki.

“Alright…in exchange, you wear one too.”

Saying that, Tamaki licked my neck.

I shivered and unconsciously let out a little cry in response to the pleasant sensation. Tamaki gave me a small smile.

“For the color, red would be good…with my name carved on it, a matching collar…let’s place a special order.”

We live inside a birdcage.

Those people who point out that the world we see is narrow, that we’ve never seen a world beyond this cage, I want them to leave us alone. Because they don’t understand. They can’t comprehend how much happiness there is inside this cage, how wonderful it is. They just don’t understand.




Notes: I laughed a little too hard when Suzune said that she’s basically a good person besides the yandere raising. This took a bit longer than expected, but it’s finally finished! Thank you so much to everyone who left likes and comments! I’m so glad you enjoyed the story (❁´▽`❁)✲゚ Hope the sequel lived up to your expectations!! The editing was a little rushed, so if you see any spelling or grammar issues, feel free to let me know 〔´∇`〕

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

A few days after meeting El.

He has become completely attached to Roselia and is always holding her hand. Little by little, he was also getting used to her butler, Allen.

However, he is still afraid of adult men and doesn’t go near Roselia’s father, Clifford, at all.

While Clifford understood the circumstances, he received quite a psychological shock from being so blatantly feared and had to be comforted by his wife and daughter.

“It can’t be helped, Father. El’s fears from that time still haven’t disappeared. It’s actually a miracle that he’s gotten so attached to me in such a short time.”

She said, stroking her father’s head.

“Dear, this kind of thing needs time. He doesn’t approach me either. I’m being patient, though I’m lonely as well.”

“Aaah, I took him in knowing the circumstances…I really can’t forgive those who hurt El. It wasn’t enough to just crush them.” [1]

“There’s still the mastermind left. It’ll feel good to make the one who was behind all this pay.”

“Aah, that’s true.”

…Father and mother are kind of black-hearted. But, an idiot who thinks up a black market auction is better off in hell!

Their conversation continued to take even darker turns as Allen entered the room, so I escaped to the garden with him and El.



“El, Allen.”

“Rose-sama, did you finish your conversation?”

“Yeah, let’s leave the rest to the adults.”

El leapt towards me and I immediately patted his head. I asked Allen to prepare some tea.

These days, El doesn’t refuse to let Roselia touch him. Rather, he seems to like having his head rubbed.

It’s so cute that I feel a little superior at being the only one allowed to do so.

“El, are you getting along with Allen?”

Nod.

“Is that so, that’s great.”

“He has been eagerly waiting for Rose-sama.”

“Fufu, is that right.”

Happy to hear that, I immediately patted El’s head. We sat at a table in the garden and drank the tea Allen had prepared.


[1] Here “crush them” can also mean “putting them out of business”.

Note: Roselia…I think you’re plenty dark-hearted too. You’re not wrong though.
