When I was young I had a strange dream.
It is a dream that you become someone else in a white room that smells of disinfectant solution, with a mysterious machine, playing alone.
Because it was a dream, I can not remember details. Even my name is ambiguous. Nevertheless.
「Again the only thing to do is play games-」
Always in the back of my head, the dream resurfaced with a tremendous force. My body tilted forward till both my hands and knees fell to the cold hard floor.
Suddenly, I felt like I remembered everything. The amount of information struck me like a tsunami attack.
Before long, the view of the focused in and reflected on marble floor. It was polished enough for one to see their own reflection.
(…… This face……. Like I saw in the game……. What, the game?）
Someone with long eyelashes stood in front.
A blonde young man. I distort my lips and look down from above at my knees.
「It is no use trying to kneel and sorrow or to try sympathy. Except you, everyone here knows. As long as you’re my fiancee, you’ve been acting so violently that there’s no room for pity.」
「- Cedric, like, are you really Cedric?」
The young man responded sarcastically to the shivering voice.
「You want to say it’s not like that? But this is my source. We’ve been a fiance for years, and you couldn’t see through that one thing.」
The pain in the chest, really makes you regain a sense of reality.
Yes, this is reality. And, the person in front of him is the prince of his country Cedric · Jeanne · Elmeier. My acquaintance from a young age, my fiancee – and the capture target of the game I loved.
I am afraid of my memory and look around. But only a cold gaze stabbed it.
Tonight is a free-to-join event where the school celebrates the end of the winter semester. Teachers are already out, and there are only schoolmates. Yet no one saw him so cold.
The only woman who is looking forward to it is a woman who sits close to Cedric—her name is Lilia.
Chestnut hair that looks soft, sweet lips on a plump cheek. The big eyes are now thinking about myself.
As expected, I looked up at the heroine and observed her, and noticed it.
「Eileen · Lauren · Doutricez. I will let my engagement be anulled」
「- Please wait, that!」
It’s my name. And it’s the name of the villainess in the game.
(Well, wait a minute! Yes, Cedric is my fiancee … if I …)
Thinking of a response for the current situation that seemed to be somewhere else. Cedric ridiculed.
「I have decided to live honestly with Lilia.」
「… Eileen, I’m sorry」
I am sorry.
The passion that I raised from the back of his throat was correct for Eileen.
Again the field of vision was hazy, but I caught my lip and tried to care more. Once again, I will look at my figure.
The place is crowded with a luxurious dress shape with many races repeatedly. But no one will reach out.
Because it’s an engagement annulment for the Villainess.
「I am sick of your misunderstanding that I am loved by you.」
Then why did you smile at me?
I will drink that miserable word. It was as heavy as lead, but it made me wonder and my heart calm
(…… I mean, I think the timing is terrible for the memory to return…… But I just got a little cool.）
The point is that I remember so much that I could judge how to handle the situation myself.
「I do not have to ask you if there are any suggestion」
If this was an event that happened without me knowing anything, I would have fought thoroughly. Leading me to the wrong path by mistake.
I thought so, we could afford. Smile thinly, raise your face.
「No, Cedric. – If you ask frankly from the beginning, you need not to make such a big scene out of it.」
When I looked around with cold eyes, I saw the meaning or there was someone who looked away. But Cedric smiles with his nose.
「It is a declaration of my and Lelia’s determination」
「If you created such a stage here, was it to escape being scolded by His Highness and the Duke?」
「I do not think so, I just thought your sins should be revealed in front of everyone.」
「Sin – Huh…」
Suddenly I lifted my body like pulling my arm from the side.
Look around the neck, Eileen looks at the opponent.
「Do not be rude. Not against the lady」
「What lady, Eileen, I can not disguise anymore of your deeds.」
Mark’s Cowell, a childhood friend, stuck out a bunch of documents in front of him. He is regarded as the future commander of the Knights, and he is taciturn with a slender body. It has a strong sense of justice and does not allow dishonesty. That intimidating eye deflects Eileen like a sinner.
「….. I can stand up by myself. Will, you let me go?」
Eileen, who looked back on Marks with cold eyes, stood up on her own and took back her arm. I flicked over the documents I have been presented. It is a so-called accusation letter. When did you gather it?
Since Lilia’s status is low, she was bullied for “not saying hello first.” I felt sorry for her that I had remarked on her lines after she was forced to change the performance of the play at the school festival to the selfishness of Eileen. If she does not follow what she was told, she was threatened to have her parents demoted of the bureaucracy and many other things continue.
Everything is anonymous, not to mention a signature. I threw it all back in their faces.
「Are you stupid, this is not proof is it?」
Laughing graciously in a large amount of paper dancing fluttering.
「Marks … I will teach you that rumors are not evidence as they are just saying or slander. 」
「Would you still insist on that even after being charge this much! Do not think that if you are a daughter of Doutricez, you will be saved」
「I think that evidence will remain as a serious misrepresentation of Doutricez, and this childish thing …since when did the student become an infant at this school?」
I then stepped on a piece that fell on the carpet of the heavenly carpet at the end of the shoe. And laughing with a smile.
「If you want to pass through, why do not you gather it all again with a signature? Then learn it properly that every one of you, are also as guilty as I am as it was anonymously signed unless otherwise a name was given.」
Eileen says to Mark as he vomits with irritation.
「Is there no option of apologizing for that much going around?」
「’Apologize?’Yeah, let’s apologize. Lady Lilia. I apologized to you for trying to impose the aristocrat rule that you should not talk to people of high social status unless you are allowed to talk to them. I’m sorry that the play of the school festival long ago when I changed my mind because it was difficult to remember the long lines.」
「Do not insult her, Eileen! Lilia?」
This is insulting here.
In front of such a group of people, the Crown Princes himself announces his engagement annulment. If you do not have the intention to make Eileen a laughing stock – do not collect childish accusation letters to whom is disliked by everyone – this will not develop like that.
But Cedric who got angry turned red and Marks trembling with his fist can only see Lyria with watery eyes. Well looking carefully, the students who are standing around the surroundings are capture characters and their buddies.
This evening party is free participation. I bother to have attended the meeting. Then, I aimed at the moment the teacher left.
(How small.―- No, but I’m the one who did it)
Even if I stay here any longer, it is vain. I breathed out my vigor and breathed new breath.
「There was too much chatter… I am disappointed … Would it have been all you wanted, was to see me cry? Unbelievable.」
I will not cry in the end, I will smile. Do not give a sense of superiority that I did it.
So, you must be yourself to get the curtain.
「Well, thanks to you for so much, Cedric – I loved you.」
She looked at Cedric who was defeated.
But Eileen who made past everything in the past lifts the dress’s hem with a perfect way of manning, and thanks. And gracefully returned the heel, and the shine of the chandelier was sent off to the back
Maybe because she is crying and clenching her teeth still thinking about it.
From now on, I will forcibly withdraw from the school where aristocratic children attend, with the existence of Cedric that “I do not want to see the face”. The end of the game is certainly a graduation ceremony of the school. It is still about three months.
However, there must have been some events in the meantime. There are many ambiguous parts where my memories are still confused, but Eileen definitely disowned by the Duke and goes on the path of self-destruction.
(That’s right, if this is really the world of that game, it is not the time to cry)
- Then three months after everyone will graduate from the school, so-called ending, the villain’s daughter Irene is dead.
「It’s not a joke」
I will not cry. I will not give up.I won’t die for the happiness of those people.
Think. Remember. It is precise because of my memory that I can do something …
「… … the enemy of the enemy is a friend, do not you?」
Laugh only with lips that pulled the medicine and red lipstick.
That smile was of a villainess and kept tears away.
