When I noticed, I was a Villainess, Follower B!
Huh? Isn’t this the world of the game my daughter played before?!
Suddenly, I, the Earl’s daughter Cosette, regained my memories of a previous life and was appalled by my mildly grand fatty body type and started dieting.
Using the skills I’ve cultivated continuously in my previous life as a old woman, today Cosette will push forward!

I Will Quit Entourage 61
The crown prince had cut down on coming to the academy since that day.
And when he does come, he always looks busy and I don’t get a chance to talk at all.
It’s as if we have returned to that time before the tea parties, when we didn’t even know each other.
I remember looking at him from afar then.
Back then, when his highness looked so beautiful that it didn’t feel like he was from this world—and so I also didn’t have that much of an interest.
However, now, I know he’s just another person breathing and living in this same world—and so I look at him differently.
Unrelated to that, Remias has not been coming to the academy either.
He was collecting evidence of injustice, so I was worried that something might have happened to him but when I asked Remie-sama, she said that her elder brother had just caught a bad cold and was taking a long break.
This is boring.
While I was sighing with my head down on the table, my head was stroked.
“You tired? We had dance class today, after all. That reminds me… C-cosette, have you decided on a partner?”
“Partner? For what?”
When I lifted my head, I found George looking at me with wide eyes and slightly red cheeks.
“The Freshman Welcome Dance! Although it is a bit late this time around but it says in the bulletin that it will held at the end of the month.”
“Dance…. I had completely forgotten.”
“Oi, oi, oi…. Haa.. Then you probably don’t have a partner?”
“Obviously. I didn’t know up till now, alright? And nobody invited me to it either, so.”
So that’s why the girls have been going ‘kyaa, kyaa’ recently in the classroom.
I didn’t notice at all since no one invited me.
Even though I worked hard and am dieting…. disappointing.
“…..Oh, really? I’m glad! Let’s get along, us loners!”
That’s great! I don’t have to be a loner in the dance anymore.
“Us loners… Ha…”
George dropped his shoulders for some reason. Hmm?
When I told Sissy about the dance after returning to the mansion, she got quite angry.
“Why did you not let me know earlier?! Miss, your size keeps on changing frequently and you also do not participate in tea parties so you barely have any proper formal dresses! And it’s for an evening party on top of that! Awaawaawaa”
“Either way, I will call the tailor immediately! Ahh, we also need to do that and this and awawwaawaaa”
Sissy went rushing out, so I decided to just sit down and drink some tea while I wait. The tailor soon came in.
“Miss, I am Zamas. Well then, I shall be taking the measurements today, zamas. As it will be a super express delivery, I will be quick zamas. I would like you to choose the fabric while I take the measurements, zamas.”
While I was wondering if this was the old woman Zamas, Mrs Zamas’ subordinate A went on to take my measurements and her subordinate B raised the materials in front of my face so that I could choose and Mrs Zamas immediately started making the design.
As I sunk into the chair, completely exhausted from the thorough measuring, Mrs Zamas showed me a few designs.
“Miss, you’re very thin so I recommend a dress going swoosh from the back and woosh towards the front, zamas. I recommend these fabrics which I chose.”
“Wait, did you say zamas just now?”
“Well then, I will come again for test sewing, zamas.”
“No, like, you don’t intent on listening to my opinion, do you?”
“Then, if you will excuse us, zamas.”
Mrs. Zamas…. she left like a storm.
Her explanation of the dress was so vague that I couldn’t understand anything.
Well, although her personality is like that, since she is highly popular for making dresses which match the client, I guess I will leave it to her.
Even still, how does she keep doing business when she doesn’t even listen to her clients?
“…..I wonder what kind of a dress she will make. I can’t even imagine.”
“Mrs Zamas is very popular even at the capital so it will be fine. I thought she wouldn’t accept but it’s a relief that she did.”
“…..Yeah. You did well to have her accept.”
Mrs Zamas is very hard to please and she doesn’t normally accept orders from new customers.
On top of that, her delivery time ranges from 1 week to 3 months—it changes based on how quick she gets inspired.
You would think that the fashion trend itself will change in 3 months but the dresses she makes brings out the wearer’s appeal and is not only original, it also creates a new trend.
As such, she is flooded with requests and one can rarely order a haute couture made directly by her.
“That, was the actual person herself, right? It was my first time meeting her.”
“Yes, it was Mrs. Zamas herself. It was my first time meeting her, as well. I didn’t think she would come herself.”
As Mrs. Zamas rarely makes haute couture and normally has her disciple designers make it, she rarely goes to the customers’ place.
Sissy made the request assuming that one of the disciple would come.
“But, now that Mrs. Zamas herself took the job, we can’t predict when the dress will be done. Let’s make some orders at other places, as well.”
“It’s the unpredictable Zamas, after all….”
It’s bothersome but I guess we have no choice zamas.
But such predictions were soon overturned.
Mrs. Zamas came into my room next morning with the test dress in her hands.
I literally jumped up as the door was suddenly slammed open.
And Sissy came running after her.
“Haa.. haa.. haa.. Mrs… Mrs Zamas… has come..”
It seems Mrs. Zamas couldn’t be stopped by anyone in the mansion as she passed even Sissy while coming here.
Is this person really okay?
I am really worried about whether she is alright or not… in the head.
Is this how artists are? I wonder if art is an explosion.
As I stared at her with my eyes wide open, she handed the dress over to me.
“Mrs. Zamas… this is.. the test dress..?”
“I am Zamas. That’s right, zamas. Please wear it right away, zamas.”
“Eh, ah, yes.”
While I just stood there, dumbfounded, the changing had already started.
Mrs. Zamas stood a bit far away and kept giving instructions to her disciples seriously about holding or lifting the dress.
“Umm, Mrs. Zamas.”
“I am Zamas. What is it?”
“Why did you accept this job? We had only met for the first time yesterday…”
“Because you requested, zamas.”
“No, not about that…”
Ah, I can’t get through.
“Cossette-sama, you’re the designer of the signora, right zamas?”
“Eh? Yeah. I just made the thing I wanted.”
I feel very uncomfortable talking about designs with an actual designer, when the one I used was just based on my knowledge of my previous world.
“That goes for me as well. High heel, was it? That made my design dreams multiply, zamas. It just keeps coming up that I don’t even have time to sleep, zamas.”
“I am… sorry?”
Mrs. Zamas just smiled happily.
That’s the first time I saw her smile. I couldn’t really notice properly before but she is quite pretty.
“This is the first time I had my imagination outburst since I first became a designer. As such, I wanted to meet you once, miss.”
Mrs. Zamas said, as if to imply that she was also a bit jealous, as another designer.
It made me feel kinda sorry and I couldn’t reply.
“But… after meeting you, after seeing your thoroughly trained style, those feet which bring out the true appeal of high heels… I wanted adorn it with my design, zamas.”
Mrs. Zamas gave a bold smile, saying ‘I shall make the perfect dress for you!’, to which I could finally smile back, as well.
“Fufu, then I will be looking forward to it, Mrs. Zamas.”
“I am Zamas.”
Mrs. Zamas’ job was quick.
She kept making changes to the test dress right there and brought the final form to light.
And it seemed she kept getting more and more ideas even while she was doing that so I can’t even begin to imagine what kind of a dress it will turn out to be.
After Mrs. Zamas had left, Sissy and I just lied down, drenched in sweat.
All that’s left is to wait for the completed version.
It seems the dress will be done the day before the dance.
She did say that she might come a few times before that but the image in her mind has solidified.
I am excited to see what kind of a dress she makes!
“And now, Angie-jou is…… Before that let me first tell the story of Consort Rose. Perhaps consort Rose was supposed to be killed along with the assassination of his majesty Henry. However…… Consort Rose conceived a child in her body before his majesty died. She knew that she herself was being targetted and hid herself, there after fleeing she gave birth to Angie.”
“With that conspicious hair, skillfully without being found……”
Consort Rose and Angie-jou had pink hair. That is very conspicuous, conversely if you just change the colour of the hair it might not be difficult to escape.
“Umu. It seems Angie-jou had dyed her hair. The person herself said that the tea party was the first time that she restored her hair colour. And that was the reason she was able to enter that tea party… It seems there was a person who guided.”
“As expected huh……”
At last the mystery of the tea party trespassing incident is solved. Someone guided…… Reflecting about it, it would be a person who understands the security I wonder.
“The daughter of Consort Rose’s wet nurse, seems to be working as a maid for an Earl household. She felt pity for Angie-jou who inherited her blood from the royal family degraded to the streets to endure misfortune, and seems to have cooperated with her.”
“Is that so…… This matter, does my father know?”
“Of course. I was talking with the Earl secretly since that tea party. At present a baron household who is an old friend of the Earl has accepted looking after Angie-jou’s person. If her presence is known publicly, it will bring unnecessary chaos. I believe everything should ought to be known, that is just not now.”
His highness raised his head, and gazed hard at me with a sincere look.
The matter that his highness is attempting to disclose, is also to uncover the crime that his father the king committed.
Depending on the situation consequently there is a possibility that his highness himself’s body may be at risk, I think he has solidified his resolution for that.
That is this boy might be the embodiment of fastidiousness, this straightforward attitude I thought was nice.
Thus from the tension, because this fellow was trying to bear the weight of what he is trying to do by himself… The clenching fists at his knees were white and trembling a little.
There his anxiety and weakness is seen, I suddenly remembered that this intelligent crown prince is still 10 years old.
Thus I, strongly thought that I must protect the heart of this straightforward young boy.
“George…… What are you doing?”
When I hear the voice from behind I turned around to face it. A blond young boy with hazel eyes was staring here with blank amazement.
“Isn’t it Remias! Just right! You have a go at this aodaーkefumi too! It feels really good! Its perfect for a gloomy unhealthy oldman(jijii) who secludes himself in their room like you!”
Oーu, Shi・n・ra・tsu! (TLN:Help オーゥ、し・ん・ら・つ
I’ve no clue what it means. My best guess would be something like “Oooooh, harsh!” if put into english terms but I’m really not quite sure)
George-sama gave a refreshing smile that did not suit the intensity of that remark bluntly said to the boy.
This…… Ill will is nonexistent!
However, you can’t just excuse such reckless remarks just because there is no evil intent.
Considering the simple and cheerful nature of George-sama, I guess it seems the person himself just made a mistake in word choice. Still it isn’t good to hurt the other party’s feelings with non-malicious remarks.
Such a thing will lead to future bullying and in the end delinquency.
I put my hand on my waist and turn around towards George-sama.
“Hey! You mustn’t say such terrible things to your friends! Although certainly he does look a little pale and poor looking shadows under his eyes and appears to be underweight(garigari- skin and bones) and it does feel like his hair is a bit parched!”
“O, oi, I haven’t said anything to that extent……”
“Don’t you talk back! Well? Your apology?”
George-sama looked at me with a sullen expression, eventually resigning to opened his mouth.
When I turned to face the blond haired young boy, I bowed my head.
“I’m sorry okay? What our child said was cruel…… It would be pleasant if you could get along well after this.”
“No, Why is it our child……? I, I’m not your child…… You’re the same age…… Are you kaa-san(mom)?”
George-sama is grumbling complaints but I pay it no mind.
The boy had a face that looked stunned, though before long it changed into a smile.
“Aha ha ha ha! It, it’s okay, I don’t mind. It is George’s usual thoughtless words…… My being underweight is also true.”
That’s good. Such a fine young boy.
But George-sama, I absolutely must teach him the way to associate with friends.
I uh-huh with a nod and smiled at the boy graciously.
“My apologies for it being late but, I am the eldest child of Doranju Duke, named Remias・Doranju. Pleased to make your acquaintance from now on. You are…… Cosette・Edelweiss Earl young lady I suppose……”
I was relieved by Remias’ words. To be discourteously preoccupied while disciplining george-sama, such a thing!
To be beaten into by an oni-like governess, surpassing a cat’s covering(?)…… Oba-chan nature, how dreadful! (TLN: Need help with this whole sentence 鬼のような家庭教師によって叩き込まれ、被らされた猫の被り物を凌駕するとは I don’t understand any of it… fogging/covering up reason? Cat?)
I become confused a familiar blush mounting. (TLN: Same confusing words 私は慌てて被り慣れた猫を装着した。it might be covering up the mounting familiar blush.)
“Remias-sama. I’m sorry for the delayed greetings. As you’ve said, it is Cosette・Edelweiss. Please excuse the discourtesy.”
Automatically feigning innocence a long time, it came to the point we decided to put into operation an elegant lady’s etiquette.
“No, it’s fine. An interesting thing was seen. Something like an apology from that hardheaded George, only you can do.”
“Chi, noisy. I mean Cosette, somehow the woman seems unpleasant.”
“I’m a woman. Is a lady. Ahー Layー Deeー!”
Pinching George-sama’s bottom.
“uhiiitetetete! Stop iiit! I understand, you’re a woman! But I, like the usual you than those weird(suspicious) guys who act prudish!”
“Ara…… George-sama then.”
Were you pleased?
I didn’t realize it until now, but I understand why George-sama came to visit(play) almost everyday.
I thought it was because he awakened to the health goods.
“After that, stop with the ‘sama’ already. George is fine. Friends right?”
George-sama…… George, said turning away bashfully(awkwardly).
Whats with this child. Adorable(Kawaii).
I smiled a friendly grin and turned to George.
George delightfully heheh and smiled.
“Please call me Remias. George’s friend, is also my friend. I’ve heard various stories from my sister Remy, I thought that we would certainly become friends.”
“Maa, because of Remy-sama! Its an honour!”
Thats right, if you think about it properly Remias is Remy-sama’s Onii-sama huh.
To bare health of growth period in full swing! Since the impression did not resemble Remy-sama very much, I didn’t realize it.
Remias is fairly slender, skin is also dry.
Given that the scraps of nourishment is insufficient…… it is worrying indeed.
I felt my Oba-chan’s meddling nature bubble and well up.
“Remias-sama…… No, Remias. Because it is a rare occasion, why don’t we all chat inside the shop? There is also a new tea.”
When I tried attaching sama, Remias however made a face so I corrected myself.
“Sounds good! Certainly, please pardon the intrusion.”
“Yayー! Cosette’s sweets are good and delicious!”
I led the pair into the shop’s interior parlour.
“I? I am Angie. The heroine of this world!” (TLN: she says atashi or アタシ, which is usually used by younger girls trying to sound cuter? And the word 主人公 or heroine can also be replaced with main character, protagonist or hero )
Shiii-n… … (TLN: I suppose this is a silent pause sfx, but I’m not really sure.)
A painful silence passes through the flower garden. Even Remy-sama who was burning with rage just a moment ago quickly changed her eyes as if she were looking at an impossible creature.
This child… … it hurts … … it hurts wa… …
I thought this person had chuunibyou … … While thinking that, I spoke to her.
“It is so, you are Angie-sama. But i would like to ask you, this flower garden is part of our house’s private estate. I am having a tea party today, but in the list of invited guests your name Angie-sama is not there… … ”
As she smiled and slowly tilted her neck, Angie seemed to be frightened. But in a moment, her smile soon immediately became fearless.
“I did not know of any invitation. I(atashi)… … I(watashi), for the event… …am not here for it. I came to pick flowers! Flowers for my sickly mother!”
Event……? Angie restated hastily, certainly it sounded like and Event. Leaving that aside, for some reason the sound resounded and weighed heavily in my mind.
“I just came to pink flowers! What are you doing!”
Angie shouted so and then fell to the ground exaggeratedly as though she had been pushed away.
In my mind I had only thought selfish trespassing of private land…… I did not even touch nor did I lay my hand to push anyone away.
We were absentmindedly taken aback, as a clear voice resounded.
“What are you doing! !”
Appearing gallantly with the voice, his royal highness the soon to be 10 year old crown prince of the country, Leonhart-sama.
Shining brightly reflecting the glittery sunlight was beautiful silver hair that had been trimmed to the shoulder. Pupils green like emeralds fringed with long eyelashes. Despite being young, a beautiful face like a miracle, but more that that it could be said to be a work of art by a first class painter.
When Leonhart-sama appeared, the ends of Angie’s mouth seemed to distort.
“Did you hear me, I asked what you were doing!”
Before, I who was dumbfounded could react, she… Angie raised her voice.
“I was picking flowers. Flowers for my sick mother…… But then, this person……”
Angie looked up at Leo-sama while letting her eyes moisten with tears. While imperceptibly rubbing her pained knees which had been stained with soil.
Angie’s face with upturned eyes was exceedingly lovely. While staring at those large eyes spilling even now, Leo-sama did not move it were as if he had been bound. Angie’s challenging appearance from earlier became hidden, around her I think it seemed like glittering stars were dancing…… it, it is dancing. It truly is dancing.
I rubbed my eyes to try and wipe away the illusion, but it is still sparkling. When looking carefully with my eyes as Angie moved her head, I found silver powder falling out of her hair.
Because it is silver in colour, it doesn’t seem to be dandruff. Or would silver dandruff come from pink hair?
Uumu, while thinking about dandruff, Leo-sama’s harsh voice rose.
“Was there a need for violence? Angie was just picking flowers, yet, an Earl’s daughter, you are a disappointment, leave my presence at once!” (TLN:帰ってくれたまえ I think it means to leave or go back but i’m not very sure. So if anyone could help me with that)
“What?” (TLN: It was へ or he? or heh? When you sound it out. I wonder if I should leave it as heh? Since it sounds more like she was surprised like that.)
Eh? Are you saying that to me?
I look around restlessly, But Leo-sama’s sight was only on me.
Also as if it were too much to remember, in the first place, this is my house……
Too much of an accusation, not to mention the other person was his royal highness the crown prince, Angie continued the pursuit with the final blow.
Angie, who was supported by Leo-sama, while distorting her mouth, declared this.
“If the shape is unsightly, then the character is also ugly to the very core…… ahhh, dreadful”
Before my eyes went pitch black. The words thrown were just too much, I lost consciousness as it is……
“You! Do you not know what I am saying? Quickly depart from here at once!”
A tall girl with brilliant Blond hair wound in stunning vertical rolls stands gallantly posed with a hand on her waist.
Pointing her finger while raising her voice towards girl whom was sitting on the ground. She was a pretty girl with fluffy pink hair.
Based on the blond hair and vertical roll, the reason why I can see this is because I am standing behind Remy the daughter of the duke.
As for me, i am Cosette, daughter of the earl, an underling among Remy-sama’s entourage. In my fixed position at the back behind the three entourage daughters.
These three were daughter of the Marquis Julia-sama, Daughter of the Earl Emilia-sama, and daughter of the Viscount Marietta-sama. the one leading the crowd at the front Remy-sama is the leader of this group of villainess daughters.
Each of their hair colour is red, blue, and yellow easy to remember. Its the colour of traffic signals. After you add in green and pink the squadron is complete.
Ha! Some time ago succumbing to fear, the pretty girl was trembling like a small animal in the presence of Remy-sama
While I was absorbed in thought shifting a little behind the entourage three, my arm was suddenly caught.
“Wait a moment! Cosette, you say something about this too! This is your flower garden is it not?”
“Ha, a, ha……”
Suddenly pushed forward towards Remy-sama, I confronted the pink girl while my eyes darted about. (TLN: It said white and black eyes, which confused me for a bit but apparently it seems to mean confused,surprised, or bewildered eyes + the darting eyes which I thought fitted best)
Yes, this here is my flower garden.
Despite being the daughter of an Earl, I was gardening as a hobby. I had asked my father who was the Earl to make the flower garden for me.
The flower garden which I had brought up diligently since i was 5 years old with the great help of the gardener bob-jiisan. Now that I am 10 years old it can be said that my garden had become a pretty good garden.
Today, we had a tea party to unveil my prided garden.
My Earl’s daughter tea party, to the crown prince who is the same age as me.
I put great effort to compose the written invitation … … and once again while I was immersed in my own world, Remy-sama’s irritated voice exploded.
“Hey! Cosette! Pay attention! Do not go into your own world!”
Ha! Dangerous dangerous!
If i have been lost in thought any further, there is a habit of blankly shutting down. Regrettable regrettable.
I once again stare intentedly at the girl in front of me a second time.
As I thought the face covered in fluffy pink hair was pretty, but the sky blue eyes staring back were shining with a surprising challenging glare.
There were a lot of white flowers scattered at her feet, which further complemented her pretty appearance.
I thought she was trembling because of Remy-sama, but apparently she had more courage than I thought.
“Cosette? Fuu-n, you, I mean, Cosette. Because it didn’t come out in the game, I didn’t know.” (TLN: she says anta as in you. Which I believe is informal and slightly rude when said unless I understood it wrong.)
My eyes were startled wide open when I caught the words that silently slipped out from her mouth.
“Who are you… …?”
The only words I was finally able to mouth were such words.
Angie and Ekaterina entered from the entrance of the auditorium.
Angie in a red dress, Ekaterina wearing a blue dress.
On their feet are high heels.
The way of walking is …… roughly not quite satisfactory, it has come to look appropriate.
I had thought about it awhile ago, but Angie perhaps has knowledge from the previous life.
Although only came into contact in the Prologue Event, it is almost certain because she issued the word Game.
For that reason, there is a high probability that she is accustomed to high heels.
However, I wonder about when it comes to dancing. Because she was under a baron household custody, I guess she may have learned it as **cultural education^^refinement##, it may not be unattainable for Ekaterina who is a genuine young lady(reijou).
In comparison it could be inferred that Ekaterina’s experience with high heels is insufficient.
Signora fundamentally does not manufacture high heels for use by children, Ekaterina would not be accustomed to dancing assuming if she had worn high heels before.
By the way children’s high heels are not manufactured because in my opinion wearing high heels during growth is not good for the feet.
The two approached the the area where their expressions could be seen.
Angie has a bold expression Ekaterina with a slightly nervous expression.
“Well then, the gentlemen judges will be dancing in turns! Music, Come On!”
At Sandy-senpai’s signal the orchestra who were in preparation began playing dancing music.
It is a basic waltz familiar to me who is more or less a genuine young lady.
The steps are not that difficult.
The space is made circularly within the audience seating, Angie and his highness crown prince, Ekaterina and Alfred sensei faced each other.
Two pairs bowed and began the dance.
The beginning was favourable
Because the steps were simple, Angie and Ekaterina both finished the song smoothly.
The partners were replaced with Remias and George respectively for the second song, the Tempo becoming a little faster. The step is not much different from the first.
It seems both of them probably still has some leeway.
However when it became the third song, the step has become fairly complicated. Angie and Ekaterina’s partners was changed, Angie and George, Ekaterina dancing with Remias.
The pair’s footsteps began to get somewhat unsteady.
Angie may have shifted the timing of the steps, and Ekaterina’s footsteps seemed to waver visibly.
Fourth song…… Angie is partnered with Alfred-Sensei, Ekaterina with his highness crown prince. The partners his highness and Alfred-sensei, elegantly performing the final song with complicated steps speedily without difficulty, being perfect leads.
Voices of admiration leak from the audience seating as well.
However Angie and Ekaterina …… clearly are increasingly mistaking steps and wobbling.
The leads are skillful so they are still able to dance somehow, but it is fairly precarious just barely in line.
The assembly catch their breaths.
Ekaterina, has finally lost her balance grandly.
His highness promptly supported, but this……!
Ekaterina, with apologies. However quickly reorganize.
I was worried if she had sprained her legs, but it seems okay since she could go back to dancing.
And the song ended.
A sense of accomplishment from Angie dancing, a full faced smile.
On the other hand, Ekaterina is…… grimacing in disappointment, an expression that looked like she could burst into tears at any moment.
“With this we will end the dance judging! Both of you, were exceedingly magnificent! Everyone, for the two who displayed a wonderful dance, please give a big hand!”
The assembly hall praises the two’s valiant fight, unanimously applauding.
I also applauded for the two who preserved giving all their might.
“Well then, those of the jury please cast your vote!”
The judges run the pen on the paper nearby, and the monitor collects it.
“Well, it was a splendid fight, Cosette-san”
“Yes, yes. It was a truly splendid dance. To be able to dance so elegantly with the unaccustomed high heels, I suppose they made quite the effort. I was deeply moved……”
Feet in high heels were probably in pain as well, you’ve hung in there huh, the tears are overflowing.
I can not stop the tears as I recall my daughter in the previous life.
Sandy senpai is flustered about me who is openly crying, but it doesn’t stop.
“Co, Cosette-san…………………… （How pure and gentle……）” (TLN: We think Sandy whispered out loud the text between the parenthesis.)
“Ah, no, its nothing. Co, come, it seems the judging results had come out.
When I shifted my sight towards center stage, the monitor walked by not long ago.
“First vote, Angie-jou! Second vote, Angie-jou! Third vote, Angie-jou! Fourth vote, Ekaterina-jou! ………… Therefore this time’s one-on-one match, is decided to be Angie-jou’s victory!”
Ooーh! Cheer rises from the audience seating.
And then at the same time Sandy senpai ran to conduct an interview with his highness.
“Your highness crown prince, please give a general comment about the influence of the outcome!”
“Thats right…… The match this time, In pure dance ability Ekaterina-jou side is a few levels above. However, experience of high heels, and the point of enjoying the dance, it seems the referee fan points in favour of Angie-jou. However, both companions were lovely! I was able to have an enjoyable time. The both of you, thank you.”
In his highness’s words Angie frustration revealed itself a little despite turning a smile, Ekaterina is shedding tears while gazing at his highness.
Thus, tutorial first round, the match against Ekaterina ended with Angie’s victory.
However looking at this match, I have some doubts.
First, the personal combat with tutorial A Ekaterina, Angie was supposed to win more easily. Despite that, the result was 3 to 1 narrow victory.
And then, there is Signora and the high heels that shouldn’t exist in the game were adopted in the one-on-one fight.
Clearly these two points seem to be very different from the flow of the original game.
Due to me and Angie who have knowledge of the previous life, the course of events in the game may be changing.
Thinking while seeing off the two exiting participants, Angie turned to look back.
Overlooking the stage, I was glared at with gleaming eyes.
But Angie turned on her heels without a word, and left as it was.
Angie would have noticed that I am also a reincarnator too I suppose.
While thinking, It might be necessary to talk together on one occasion, I left the assembly hall as well.
Encounter: Angie perspective
I was looking forward to enrollment to the school.
It was because since I’ve met his highness crown prince Leonheart at the Prologue Event and entrusted to the baron household, Leonheart never came to see me.
I made use of the game’s information several times to meet in the royal palace, but was brought back with a bewildered expression.
Eventually, before I knew it the labyrinth entryway of the royal palace was blocked, I couldn’t go to see him.
At the same time the baron residence’s security became too strict so it became too difficult to sneak away.
I was born in the royal capital the area where the poor houses were lined.
My birth mother was said to have died shortly after I was born. Given I’ve never met them, honestly I do not feel very deep emotions.
But, I heard she had the same characteristic pink hair as me.
However the hair is too conspicuous. Since it is rare in the slums where I live the hair stands out too much and is a good target appearance for kidnapping, the so called hair was dyed a simple earthy brown.
The one who raised me was my mother’s wet nurse. Her name is Nannie. Nannie has a daughter two years older than me, Minnie, and she grew up with me like a sister.
To me Nannie is my mother, Minnie was my sister.
I remembered my previous life’s memory, it was the very same day as my 10th birthday.
I died at the age of 13 in my previous life…… I think.
I do not remember the reason I died because I don’t know it.
It was only after middle school when my friends taught me to understand something called a girl game for the first time, I was horribly addicted.
I liked very much the crown prince Leonheart in particular, I saw dreams about Leonheart.
Able to reincarnate into the game…… Leonheart is a reality!
This for sure, I strongly believe that it was a present bestowed by kami-sama who considered I who died an untimely death was pitiful.
I will absolutely capture Leonheart, GET I will do it!
I swore to my heart.
After all, I for sure really love Leonheart!
ああ、早く会いたい！Ahhh, I want to see you soon!
By remembering the knowledge of the game, I also realized that my birth mother was the concubine of the former king, that I am a missing offspring of the royal family.
And so I thought, I have to go to the Prologue Event. However, I didn’t know where that Prologue Event was held.
Although the Prologue Event was a concern, everyday passed without being able to do anything.
While I was impatient it became the anniversary of my birth mother’s death, I decided to go pick flowers instead of Nannie kaa-san who is prone to lying down these days her health had been bad.
When I asked Minnie if there was a nice flower garden, she told me that there was a good place. Minnie is working for a house somewhere, she seemed to have found it nearby.
For some reason Minnie, said to restore the colour of my hair before going to the flower garden. Why would that be? But, I obeyed because it’s what my close sister Minnie said.
So far things Minnie says had never been wrong.
When my hair colour was restored Nannie unreasonably stayed up and put a strange perfume on my head. A perfume use by my birth mother. I’m simply going to pick flowers but it’s strange.
When I go to the flower garden where I was told…… I noticed some familiarity.
It was different from this place, but the atmosphere closely resembles the flower garden of that Prologue Event.
From the other side of the nearby trees you can hear a lot of voices.
Without knowing why if I don’t go there, I thought breaking into a run.
Over there was a noble’s tea party being held.
I soon realized that this was the location of the Prologue Event, I looked for Leonheart’s figure.
！….. **ita – which could also mean Oww^^Its there##! !
Leonheart whom I’ve seen even in dreams. Like in the game, beautiful silver hair, eyes of emerald.
No, its much more fantastic than the game!
I became captivated by Leonheart with a glance.
But, in front of me there is an ugly fatty girl.
Remember. In the game it was the personal combat practice chubby character right?
I couldn’t come up with a name, but its the amazingly round silhouette in the game!
Wearing a dress that isn’t suitable its weird wearing it!
Also, Remy who was the obstructive character in the game.
The vertical winding roll is also realistically reproduced. It isn’t sprayed so I wonder how’d you do it?
Looking at the real thing there was too much Volume it was to a Level of respect.
There must be cord among other things employed to bind the hair.
When I made a suitable partner(helper?), Leonheart came to pick me up.
Ahh, we finally meet! My prince-sama.
「さあーーーやってまいりました、王太子殿下争奪！夢の令嬢勝ち抜き戦！本日は記念すべき第一回目の一騎打ち対決となります！今回の対戦者をご紹介しましょう！ “Comeーーー We have done it, his highness crown prince contest! Young lady of dreams knockout competition! Today should be the celebration for the first time around of the personal combat showdown! Now, let us introduce the competitors!
赤のコーナー！ピンクの髮が印象的！民間特別クラスより、アンジェ嬢ーー！！！対しまして青のコーナー！ビン底メガネがキラリと光る！王太子殿下ファンクラブ会長！エカテリーナ・チュートリアル嬢ーーー！！！」 Red corner! With impressive pink hair! From the civilian special class, Angie-jouーーー! ! ! The opposite blue corner! Bottle bottom glasses with a bright shining glint! His highness crown prince fan club president! Ekaterina・Tutorial-jou! ! !”
声が会場中に届くように設計された講堂内にサンディ先輩の大声が響きわたる。In the auditorium designed to deliver the voice through the venue Sandy senpai’s loud voice reverberates.
「えっ！ちょっとまって！名字チュートリアルなの？！さすがに適当過ぎない？！」 “Eh! Wait a moment! The surname is Tutorial? ! Isn’t it too appropriate? !”
「どうしました、解説のコゼットさん」 “Whats wrong, Cosette-san of commentary”
「いやだって、チュートリアル……」 “No because, Tutorial……”
一騎打ち戦の司会進行を担当している2年生のサンディ先輩は、キュッとメガネを直して大きく頷く。Sandy senpai of 2nd year is in charge of presiding over the advancement of the personal combat match, fixes up her glasses and did a big nod all in one sweep.
「そうなんです、チュートリアル家は爵位こそ子爵ですが、アルトリア国内でも有数の歴史をもつ貴族家なんですね〜」 “Yes thats right, Tutorial house is court ranked at viscount, however it is a noble house that can be said with confidence to have the most history of prominence within Altria country isn’t it〜”
「そうなの？！」 “Is that so? !”
「もちろんでございます。ところで今回、平民特別クラスからの出場者ということで、アンジェ嬢に注目が集まっていますね。この勝負をどうみます？コゼットさん」 “Of course it is. By the way this time, the situation is the participant is from the commoner special class, attention is gathering on Angie-jou. How do you assess this match? Cosette-san.”
「えっ！えっと、そうですね……普段ランキングで競われるのは容姿、家柄、成績が主だと記憶しておりますが、今回のような一騎打ちだと何がポイントになってくるのか、それによって勝負の行方が左右されるんじやないでしょうか」 “Eh! Ummm, isn’t that right…… Usually for the competition rankings it is the physical appearance, family pedigree, remembering that grades is important, but it come down to points when in the case of personal combat like this time, also by the way don’t you think the outcome of the match would be influenced due to it?”
サンディ先輩が大きく頷いた。頭、とれないかな、大丈夫かしら。Sandy senpai did a big nod in agreement. <span style=”color: #3366ff;” title=”The word is 頭 which could mean – head, hair, boss, leader, mind, intellect, beginning, and start. All of these fit quite well in this sentence so i’m not sure which one to use “>Mind</span>, cannot be taken as balanced can it, I wonder if it is okay.
「さすがコゼットさん！入学当初から王太子殿下と親交があつく、孤高の貴公子レミアス様を虜にし、イノシシ男ゲオルグを配下におさめているダークホースなだけありますね！鋭い観察眼です！」 “As expected Cosette-san! Since the beginning of enrollment had a friendly relationship with his highness the crown prince, captivated the aloof noble youth Remias-sama, the dark horse that subdued and subordinated the manly wild boar George! A keen discerning eye!”
「え！？なに、私そんな感じ！？」 “Eh! ? What, I had that sort of impression! ?”
誤解だ。殿下と親交があることは間違いないが、レミアスを虜にした覚えもゲオルグを配下におさめた覚えもない。It’s a misunderstanding. No doubt there is friendship with his highness, however there is no memory of captivating Remias as well as recollection of subduing and subordinating George.
ゲオルグがイノシシ男なことは否定しないが。I do not deny that George is a manly wild boar.
「もちろんです！それでは今回の一騎打ちで競われる項目についてご説明いたします！」 “It is of course! Now then, I will explain the items of this time’s one-on-one combat match!”
「サラッと流した？！でも、うん、項目は気になりますね」 “Broadcasting without hesitation? ! But, un, the items are interesting huh”
「一騎打ち対決は通常のランキングとは異なった項目で審査されます！お2人にこちらの用意した条件でのパフォーマンスを行って頂き、戦っていだたきます！」 “One-on-one showdown items will be reviewed differently from the general ranking! <span style=”color: #3366ff;” title=”It was super confusing for me. So I might have made up some things based on gut feelings….. お2人にこちらの用意した条件でのパフォーマンスを行って頂き、戦っていだたきます！”>(TLN:?)</span> The preparations for the two people here’s required performance was carried out, let us do battle!”
「そうなのね。すると、なにで競われるのかしら」 “Is that so huh. Then, I wonder what they will be competing in.”
サンディ先輩は大きく息を吸ってさらに声を張り上げた。Sandy senpai breathed heavily inhaled and raised her voice again.
「今回ご用意しましたのは、グラグラ！ハイヒールでダンシング！貴方と私でフォーリンラブ！対決でごさいまーーーす！！」 “What we prepared this time is, <span style=”color: #3366ff;” title=”グラグラ(guragura) – unsteady”>shakyshaky</span>! Dancing with high heels! You and I fall in love! Itsーーー a showdown! !”
「なんてセンスのない名前かしら……とりあえずハイヒールでダンスするの？」 “I wonder such a unique(nonexistent) naming sense…… first of all why dancing with high heels?”
「その通りです！ハイヒール対決ということで、ハイヒールの産みの親、シグノーラさんの全面協力のもと行われます！」 “That is correct! High heel showdown event, held by the founder of high heels, Signora-san’s full cooperation!”
「シグノーラが？！いつの間に……」 “Signora huh? ! Since when……”
一騎打ち対決を見物しに講堂にやってきたらいきなり司会の席にあげられたのは、それが原因だろうか。Could that be the reason, when I came to the auditorium to view the personal combat showdown I was suddenly given the position of presiding host?
せめて先に教えて欲しかった…… I wish you’d atleast tell me before……
「シグノーラさんにご提供頂いたハイヒールを履いて、投票権をお持ちの審査員の方々とダンスを踊って頂きます！ハイヒールでいつもより不安定な足場でどれだけ優雅に美しく踊れるかが、この勝負のカギになって参ります！」 “Wearing the high heels sponsored by Signora-san, dance a dance with the judges who hold voting rights <span style=”color: #3366ff;” title=”for some reason the words used here is itadakimasu which most of us know is often used to mean “thank you for the meal.” I’m not quite sure about why this is or if it has any relevance to Sally senpai’s unique way of hosting/MCing.”>(TLN:)graciously</span>! How elegantly and beautiful you can dance wearing high heels that has a more unsteady footing than usual, it will become the key to this match!”
「そうですね、我が家が開発したハイヒールは滑り止め効果が優れているとはいえ、履き慣れていなければダンスを踊るのはなかなか難しいでしょう」 “Isn’t that correct, although the high heels developed by my house is has excellent anti-slip effect, if you are unused to dancing wearing it, it would be quite difficult to dance.”
先輩は我が意を得たりというように、ウンウン頷く。頷きっぱなしだな、この人。首大丈夫？Senpai is exactly as I thought, Un Un nods to agree. Nodding it seems, this person. Is your neck alright?
「出場者二人にはこの一週間、ハイヒールに慣れていだたくため練習してもらいました。果たしてその成果やいかに！！」 “The two people participating for this week, received practice for the sake of getting used to high heels. Sure enough the fruits of their labour and however much ! !”
これは二人とも是非頑張って頂きたい。Both of these people will certainly do their best to win
優雅に踊って、我がシグノーラの販促を！！Dance elegantly, promote the sales of my Signora! !
俄然やる気がわいてきた。Suddenly motivation boiled.
「それでは、審査員の方々のご紹介をさせて頂きます」 “Well then, let me have the privilege of introducing the various judges”
司会席とは反対側のステージ上に審査員席が並んでいる。 The judges seats are lined up on the stage opposite of the presiding hosts location.
「まずは我が国の王太子殿下！優しくも美しい、乙女の憧れ、レオンハルト・アルトリア様ーーー！！！せーの！私も統治して欲しい！はい！」 “First of all is his highness the country’s crown prince! The gentle and beautiful, a maiden’s aspirations, Leonheart・Altria-samaーーー! ! ! One, two! I want you to rule over me! Yes!”
「「「私も統治して欲しい！！」」」 “ “ “I want you to rule over me! !” ” ”
なんて見事なコール アンド レスポンス！！ What a splendid Call and Response! !
一糸乱れぬガッツポーズつきだ。Guts pose without a strand of disarray
いつ練習したんだ。それともこれこそがゲーム補正なのか。 When was it practiced. Or was this the game correction?
殿下が顔を引きつらせながら軽く頷いた。His highness lightly nodded with a cramped face.
「お次は孤高の貴公子！その美貌で老若男女問わず虜にするレミアス・ドランジュ様ーーー！！！せーの！私は貴方の奴隷です！はい！」 “Next is a solitary noble youth! The beauty that captivates men and women of all ages regardless of gender Remias・Dolanju-samaーーー! ! ! One, two! I am your slave! Yes!”
「「「私は貴方の奴隷です！！」」」 “ “ “I am your slave! !” ” ”
レミアスが困ったような顔をして頭をさげる。Remias lowered his head with a troubled expression.
「次はこの方！ゲオルグ・レイニード様！！猪突猛進！思い込んだら一直線！人の話は聞きません！はい！」 “This way the next is! George・Reinyd-sama! ! Foolhardy! A straight line once set on! Doesn’t listen to a person’s argument! Yes!”
「「「少しは話を聞いてくれ！！」」」“ “ “Please listen to the argument a little! !” ” ”
「ちょっと待て！なんか俺だけおかしくねーか？！」 “Just a moment! Somehow isn’t it strange for only me? !”
ゲオルグが音を立てて立ち上がるが、サンディ先輩はサラッと無視した。Although George made noise standing up, Sandy senpai smoothly ignored it.
「はい、最後はこの方！我が学園の教師でもある若き侯爵！アルフレッド・グランシール様ーー！！！せーの！貴方と二人で個人授業！はい！」 “Yes, this last person! A young marquis who is also a teacher of our school! Alfred・Granshiel-samaーー! ! ! One, two! Two person private lessons with you! Yes!”
「「「貴方と二人で個人授業！」」」“ “ “Two person private lessons with you!” ” ”
アルフレッド先生が無表情で会釈した。 Alfred sensei bowed expressionlessly
まったく動じた様子がない。このノリは学園では当たり前なのだろうか。Really, doesn’t appear to be perturbed. Is this mood the norm on campus?
なんだか思ってた学園と違う……私が頭を抱えていると、講堂内の明かりが薄暗くなり、入り口にパッとスポットライトが当てられた。Somehow the academy is different to what I imagined…… With me greatly perplexed, the auditorium’s lights dimmed, a spotlight suddenly exposed the entrance.
「……それでは、出場者の入場です！！」 “……Well then, the entering of the contestants! !”
Ufufufu~ I’ll say this now, my OTP is in this chapter~
「ゲオルグ……なにを泣いている」 “George…… Why are you crying?”
訝しげな声に顔をあげると、そこには王太子殿下であるレオンハルトと、現在学園の2年生のレミアスがいた。When I looked up to the puzzled voice, his highness the crown prince Leonheart was there, and now second-year student of the academy Remias.
二人の周りに距離を置いて人だかりが出来ている。人だかりには貴族や平民の生徒が入り混じっているが、全員が殿下とレミアスを見ているだけで一定以上近寄ってはいかない。A crowd has formed at a distance around the pair. Students of nobility and commoners are mixed in the crowd, everyone is watching his highness and Remias just not drawing closer more than a certain amount.
うわー、なにあれ。Uwaー, what is that.
近づきたくないな。2人の側によると物凄く目立ちそう。I don’t want to get close. It seems very conspicuous due to the proximity of the 2 people.
空気の読めないゲオルグは涙を拭いながらそちらに近づいていくが……鋼の心臓だ。George who can’t read the atmosphere approaches closer that way while wiping away tears…… has nerves of steel.
私が逡巡していると、殿下がこちらに近づいてきた。When I was hesitating, his highness came this way.
「オーッホッホッホッホ！！オーーーーホホホホホホホ！！ごきげんよう！皆様！このアタクシ、ドランジュ公爵が令嬢、レミーエをお待ちかねでいらしたのね！お待たせして申し訳ありませんわ！オーーーホホホホホホホ！」 “Oー ho ho hoh ho! ! Oーーーーhohohohohohoho! ! Gokigen’yoh! (*Minasama)Everyone! This (*Atakushi- informal I/watakushi)me, Dolanju Duke’s daughter, Remy who you’ve been long awaiting for! I’m sorry to have kept you waiting! Oーーーhohohohohohoho!”
空気を切り裂く高笑い。A loud laughter cut through the atmosphere.
レミーエ様が翻した真っ白なドレスの裾が風に舞う。Remy-sama twirled around fluttering the hem of her pure white dress.
その後ろに控えるは、赤青黄色の信号機こと三色令嬢……！Behind that waiting their turn, red, blue, yellow colour of traffic light signal, the three colour young ladies……!
そしていつの間にか一人称が“私”から“アタクシ”にバージョンアップを果たしている……！！And thus imperceptibly VERSION UPed from first person (*Both watashi and atakushi use the same kanji and mean I/me just said differently it seems.)“Watashi” to “Atakushi” sure enough……! !
相変わらずなんて見事な悪役感。感服してしまう。Such a magnificent villain as ever. Impressively bringing it to a close.
ちなみに今日も縦巻きロールは絶好調である。By the way, the vertical winding rolls are in perfect form today as well.
何年か観察していて気付いたのだが、レミーエ様の元気がないと縦巻きロールの元気もない。Although I noticed it after several years of observing, when Remy-sama is not lively then there is no liveliness of the vertical winding rolls.
今日はレミーエ様の体調も絶好調のようだ。Today, Remy-sama appears to be in perfect physical form.
というか制服はどうした。Or rather should I say somehow the uniform.
ブラウンのブレザーとチェックのスカートという何故か日本ぽい感じの制服の群れの中で、白のドレスはあまりにも浮いている。Brown blazer and checkered skirt somehow the uniform in school has a Japanese-esque feeling, the white dress is excessive also feels out of place.
「王太子殿下！アタクシ達は同じクラスでしてよ！さすが、学園もなかなか粋なことをしますわね！さあ、参りましょう！」 “Your highness crown prince! (* TLN?: If this way of talking continues should I just write atakushi instead of trying to force it into english? The way my head is translating it is grating on my OCD…)This me and everyone is in the same class! As expected, the academy can do fairly considerate things! Come now, let us go!”
レミーエ様は殿下の腕をとって教室に向かおうとしたが、その肩をガシッと掴むものがいた。Remy-sama took high highness’ arm and attempted to head towards the classroom, however someone firmly seized her shoulder.
「レミーエ・ドランジュ君。ちょっと待ちたまえ」“Remy・Dolanju-(*kimi? – you)kun. Just a moment please.”
「なんですの？アタクシ、忙しいんでしてよ」 “What is it? Given that this me is busy.”
「とりあえず、生徒指導室に来てもらおう。話はそれからだ」 “For now, lets come back to the student guidance room. The chat is after that.”
「いやああああ、殿下ー！」 “Noooooo, his highnessー!”
ズルズルズル (* Sounds of dragging)ZURUZURUZURU
レミーエ様が引きずられていった。Remy-sama was dragged away.
なんか、レミーエ様の性格がゲームと違う気がする…… Somehow, theres a certain feeling that Remy-sama’s personality of the game differs……
いくらなんでも、これで淑女の鑑ってのは……However you look at it, with this lady’s model is……
それから……今気づいたが、レミーエ様を引きずっていったのは恐らく最後の攻略対象者と思われる。And then…… I noticed just now, it appears perhaps it was last capture target who dragged Remy-sama away.
あの特徴的な蛍光グリーンに輝く髪はなんとなく見覚えがある。I vaguely (*recollect)recognize that characteristic fluorescent green shining hair.
あれ、地毛なのかな……青い髪も大概だと思ってたけど、蛍光グリーンはないわ。I wonder, if it is real hair…… I thought that about blue hair in general too, but not of fluorescent green.
すね毛も蛍光グリーンなのかな。Is the leg hair fluorescent green as well I wonder.
レミーエ様の退場とともに、人だかりも解散していった。殿下達と合流して入学式の会場に向かう。Along with Remy-sama’s exit, the crowd also dispersed. Joining his highness and everyone we headed for the assembly hall of the school entrance ceremony.
「レミーエ様は今日も絶好調でしたね」 “It seems Remy-sama is in tip top form today doesn’t it”
「高笑いがさらにグレードアップしてたな」 “The loud laughter was upgraded even more.”
「制服は届いていたはずなのに、何故だ……」 “The uniform should have arrived already and yet, why is it……”
取り留めもなく話しながら歩いて私達も会場に着いた。We walked while talking without stop until arriving to the venue.
入学式は、学園の中庭で行われる。The school entrance ceremony, will be held in the school’s courtyard.
中庭はさながらティーパーティーのように装飾されており、会場の脇にはビュッフェ形式の軽食が並んでいる。The courtyard is decorated just like a tea party, buffet styled snacks are lined up to the side of the venue.
うあー、美味しそう。Uaー, looks delicious.
会場の前方から学園長らしき人の声が響いてくる。From the front of the grounds the voice of a headmaster-like person resounds.
しかし入学前最後の追い込みでケーキ断ちしていた私は、欲望が暴れ出すのを抑えるのにとんでもない精神力を使ってしまっていて全く耳にはいってこなかった。 However by the final stages of the enrollment conclusion I (*abstained from/exterminated)suppressed the cake, the lust begins to act violently I employed unthinkable mental power to hold it down I completely didn’t hear it.
レアチーズタルト……イチゴのパンケーキ…… Rare cheese tart…… Strawberry pancake……
「私が王太子のレオンハルト・アルトリアだ。この学園に入学したからには、身分の分け隔てなく皆とともに研鑽を積み、将来のため視野を広げていきたく思う。皆もそのつもりで一生徒として接して欲しい……」 “I am Leonheart・Altria the crown prince. Now that I’ve enrolled into this academy, I will diligently accumulate my study with everyone without distinction of social status, I would like to expand my field of view for the benefit of the future. I wish for everyone to treat me foremost as a student with that intention……”
あれ？いつの間にか殿下が学園長の横で挨拶をしていた。Hmm? Before I knew it his highness made his greeting beside the headmaster.
ケーキに目が釘付け状態で気付かなかった。I didn’t notice because the current condition, my eyes being nailed to the cake.
「コゼット、前向いて」 “Cosette, look forward.”
「ケーキばっか見るな。アホ」 “Don’t just look at the cake. (*aho)Idiot”
ゲオルグとレミアスに注意されてしまった。It was cautioned by George and Remias.
幸い、殿下のお姿に注目が集まっているため、私がケーキしか見ていなかったことに気付いたのは2人だけのようだ。Fortunately, because the attention was collected to his highness’ figure, it seems that only the 2 people had noticed that I only kept an eye on the cake.
殿下の挨拶が終わると、そのまま懇親会にうつった。When his highness’ greeting was over, it immediately moved into a friendly gathering.
私はふらふらとケーキの方に向かおうとする足をなんとか押しとどめ、出来るだけ優雅にみえるように紅茶をすすった。I somehow unsteadily managed to hold my feet from trying to head towards the cake, I sipped tea to make it look as elegant as possible.
「ふぅー体に染み渡るね〜」 “Fuuー It prevades through the body right huh〜”
「美味しい紅茶だね」 “The tea is delicious isn’t it”
「俺は緑茶の方が好みだな」 “I prefer the taste of green tea more.”
三人で枯れたジジババのように紅茶を堪能していると、殿下がこちらに向かってくるのが見えた。 Three people (*matured)withered like grandparents while enjoying tea, I saw his highness head towards here.
……と、私達の脇をピンク色の頭が猛スピードで駆け抜けていった。 …… When, a head of pink colour ran through beside us at great speed.
……あれは……アンジェ？ …… That is…… Angie?
殿下が目を見開き、声を漏らした。His highness’ eyes opened wide, a voice leaking out.
アンジェが殿下に猛タックルをかました。Angie dealt his highness a fierce tackle.
さすが、私達とともに鍛錬をしていただけある。殿下は軽々とアンジェを受け止めている。As expected, having accepted training together with us, his highness easily caught Angie.
「会いたかった！ずっとお会いできなくて寂しかったわ！」 “I missed you! It was lonely being unable to meet the whole time!”
アンジェは明らかに戸惑っている殿下に抱きつくと、そう声を張り上げた。Angie is obviously (TLN: *it might have been his highness who was puzzled and not angie.)perplexed clinging to his highness, so he raised his voice.
おお……積極的。でも、ちょっとマズイんじゃ…… Ooh…… Assertive. But, just a bit bad as well……
学園では身分の差はなく平等に接することが義務付けられているとはいえ……いくらなんでも王太子殿下にいきなり抱きつくのは非難されても仕方がない。Although it is obligatory for the academy to look after impartially without difference to social status…… Whatever circumstances may be it is inevitable to be criticized for suddenly clinging to his highness the crown prince.
案の定、殿下の周囲の人垣から非難の声が漏れる。 Sure enough, voices of reproach leaked out from the crowd of people surrounding his highness.
「どなたかしら……殿下に抱きつくなんて、不敬にもほどがあるわ」 “I wonder who…… it is to be so disgraceful enough as to cling to his highness”
「平民特別クラスの方ではなくて？」 “Is it not a person of the special commoner class?”
「まあ……やはり下賤の方は……」 “Well…… as expected a person of low birth is……”
その人垣の中から、一人の令嬢がサッと歩みでた。From among the crowd of people, one young lady quickly came forward.
「貴女！どちらの方かは存じ上げませんが、その殿下への馴れなれしい態度！殿下ファンクラブの会長として、許せるものではありません！私と勝負なさい！」 “You! I don’t know from where,but that familiar attitude to his highness! As the president of his highness fan club, it can not be permitted! Contest with me!”
おおおおお！あれは……！ Ooooooh! That is……!
我が同志、チュートリアル令嬢A！名前は忘れたが、あのガリガリ具合にビン底メガネは間違いない。My comrade, Tutorial young lady A! The name was forgotten, but that underweight condition with bottle bottom glasses is without a doubt.
というか殿下ファンクラブってなんだ。しかも会長…… Or rather, whats this his highness fan club. Moreover, President……
などと考えている場合ではない。When thinking it over and such it isn’t the case.
これは……チュートリアルの開始である。 This is…… The beginning of the tutorial.
彼女の後が私の出番……チュートリアルBだ。After her is my turn…… Tutorial B.
まさかチュートリアルAが入学初日に起こるとは思っていなかった。I certainly did not think that tutorial A would happen on the first day of enrollment.
「待ってました！……じゃない、受けて立ちます！」 “I’ve been waiting! ….. Not that, I will accept and stand!”
私が呆然としている間に、令嬢からの勝負の申し込みにアンジェが応じ、一騎打ちが行われることになった。While I was dazed, Angie responded to the young lady’s match proposal, the personal combat match to be held has been decided
一騎打ちの投票日は一週間後。The voting day for the one-on-one match is a week later.
殿下を含む、攻略対象者たちの投票で勝敗が決まる。Including his highness, victory or defeat is decided from the voting of the capture target group.
令嬢勝ち抜き戦は王太子在学中の恒例行事であるためか、学園側によって細かい詳細が決められていく。Because the Young women knock out competition event is an established practice during the enrollment of the crown prince, the finer details are determined according to the academy’s side.
あまりに素早く動いていく事態に、私は不安に押しつぶされそうになるのを堪えるので精いっぱいだった。To the situation that moved much too quickly, I will endure being crushed by anxiety given that it was the best I could do.

As I’ve said….. Cosette x Food my OTP =D
