Chapter 67: Ange’s point of view
“Hmmm, ah, that feels good! The depressing and annoying Cosette who scurries around my Leonhardt is finally gone!”
I stretched out as far as I could on the couch .
It felt really good to be rid of Cosette, the source of my recent frustration .
That weird bug disguised as a lady was the reason why my intimacy with Leonhardt hadn’t been able to rise to the level it should have been!
“I’m glad you’re pleased . It won’t be long before it will be discovered that Remias was involved with kidnapping Miss Cosette . This will retire Remy from the Queen’s race . Are you satisfied?”
Alfred, sitting on the couch opposite me, smiled at me .
I’m glad that Alfred wasn’t affected by the Cosette bug .
I easily increased my intimacy with Alfred just by taking advantage of his past trauma and comforting him .
Maybe it’s because of my high performance ability .
I even learned some dancing and other stuff before the game started .
It’s easy for me, I’ve already cleared many rounds in my previous life .
I gave Alfred a big smile .
“Of course they’re going to figure out he had a hand in kidnapping Cosette! There’s no way Remy can become Leonhardt’s consort . I feel like an idiot for taking such a lie to heart . ”
“Yes . It really is a shame, considering you’re the rightful heir to the throne and of noble blood . ”
“But the search won’t really find out that we did it, right?”
I don’t think they’ll catch me, the main character, but we should still be careful .
It’s all about prudence, like carefully building a stone bridge and crossing it .
“The story now is that Remias received a suspicious letter and took Cosette to the duke’s house . One of our men took Cosette away from there, and Remias did not ever meet the man . The servants have agreed to pretend they never saw him ‘under the lady’s command,’ so it’s all right . ”Alfred continued, “Some people ‘accidentally’ witnessed the carriage going into the duke’s house . ”
“So, it will all be Remias’s fault! Hha! Amazing!”
Apparently Remias himself was only trying to punish Cosette a bit, so he must be very worried now that this has happened .
But it’s too late now . Silly!
Now all we have to do is to take our time with Leonhardt .
But as I let out a sigh of satisfaction, Alfred shook his head apologetically .
“I’m sorry, but our base points aren’t enough at this point . It would have been enough to beat Remy, but because of this, she can’t participate in the queen’s race anymore . ”
“What? What are you going to do then? Oh, come to think of it! I’m of noble status, so if I reveal it, my base score will jump!”
“That’s a tough one . If you reveal your identity now, you’ll be dropped from the race for lying about your identity when you first entered . It’s the ‘rules’ of the game . ”
“Is that so?”
But I don’t think Alfred, who’s already been won over, would lie to me and…
Even in the game, my origins were revealed after the ending with Leonhardt .
It must be a specification of the game .
“Yes, but then I wouldn’t be able to marry Leonhardt . It wouldn’t mean anything to me . ”
I looked up at Alfred with sad eyes .
“You can take over the throne, you know . And then you can name Leonhardt as your consort . ”
“Me? What do you mean?”
“You are the rightful heir to the throne . All you have to do is overthrow the current king who usurped the throne and take back the throne . When you become king, everything will be at your mercy . You can have Leonhardt, too . ”
“Why, of course! I can be the tragic princess who fights to regain her rightful place on the throne . During that fight, I’ll fall in love with Leonhardt . How wonderful!”
This must be a hidden narrative .
Because it’s so romantic!
Enemies who, in the midst of battle, fall victim to forbidden love .
“It’s wonderful . I want to help you be happy . Together, let’s overthrow the current king . ”
“Yes! That’s right!”
Alfred said he is going to gather his troops and start a rebellion .
He told me that I was weak, so I should just be the flag-bearer .
This all sounds like Jeanne d’Arc! And I’m the hero, so everything will be fine .
Oh, Leonhardt, wherefore art thou Leonhardt?
