Chapter 10.3

Bertia 16 Years Old (3)

 

 

Please read the novel at convallariaslibrary 𝒹❁𝓉 𝒸♡𝓂

 

 

“I actually dislike conspiracy. I just need to think of a defensive plan to protect my fiancée. Of course, I’ll treat her as just a complete stranger only if she doesn’t intentionally hurt my fiancée.”

“That is a matter of course. It’s something necessary for us, too, right?”

 

Without missing a beat, the other members also nodded in agreement with Charles who pointed that out while showing his usual smile.

Well, it’s because they are all in the same position of being mutual lovers or fiancés.
As men, if there is a possibility of our partners getting hurt, obviously we would think of protecting them.

“If we are all in agreement on how it’s indispensable for us to think of a defensive plan, it’s only reasonable for us to cooperate with one another, don’t you think so, Your Highness?”
When the word [cooperation] was mentioned, I can clearly understand that you’re looking at me with an expression that is trying to tell me to take the command, isn’t that right, Charles?

(S: This is hilarious XD)

 

…Certainly, I think that it would be the safest option to entrust these members with my [scenario], since they will surely be able to execute it accordingly.

Please read the novel at convallariaslibrary 𝒹❁𝓉 𝒸♡𝓂
As Charles and Kulgan have the ability to judge others’ characters, they would be able to behave rationally. It might be best to allow them to move independently.

However, for someone like Bard who’s simple and stu… honest, it’s possible that he might behave recklessly and trust other people without thinking of the consequences. Shaun and Nert were raised indulgently, so they might not be skilled at dealing with other people. It would be troublesome if these guys were to move imprudently because they can’t read others’ hidden intention and thoughts.

Because I’ve long been associating with them, it’s not like I can’t read all of their behavioral patterns. However, since I can read it, that’s why I understand the things that can be called risk factors.
 

 

 

“Ye~s, ganging up on a frail (though I don’t know if she is indeed frail) lady and attacking her is violating the gentlemen’s code, so I don’t really want to do it, but… when we’re cooperating to set up some traps as our defensive measure in order to protect our beloveds, it can’t be helped if someone gets caught in that [trap], right?”

 

 

After pretending to be troubled for a bit, they smiled and nodded and each gave their consent to the proposal of manufacturing traps as a compromise plan.

Indeed, it can be said that it’s quite immature for everyone to be ganging up together to repulse a single noble daughter under a trivial reason such as [because she’s harassing our lovers], as we are all men who are carrying the burden of being the country’s central figures in the future.

 

 

However, if our opponent demonstrated a clear hostility towards us, then that won’t be the case anymore.

After all, if there comes someone grasping a sword in front of your beloved person and you would greet them with empty hands just because the opponent is female, then it won’t be enough no matter how many lives you and your beloved person possess.

If that’s the case…

 

 

By setting up [traps], it means you can create [reasons] for a counter attack in order to protect your beloved person from the opponent’s clear [malice].
Naturally, the [malice] and [reasons] are arranged to prepare [the real thing] that’s free from lies, deceptions, broad interpretations, etc.

That’s why, even if we set up some [traps], if she actually doesn’t hold any [malice], then her sins won’t become apparent.

 

 

By all means, the best case for both sides would be if nothing happens, but… Honestly speaking, I don’t mind whichever happens.

I’m fine as long as my fiancée doesn’t have a hard time, and so long as I can arrange the circumstances in which she would be by my side and entertain me as always.

Besides that point, I don’t have any interest in Baroness Heronia.

Aah, but, well, since she is also a citizen of this country, as the crown prince, I’d still have to do something to deal with her if she were to cause trouble for this country.

 

 

“For the moment, I will be reporting whenever she’s acting fishy. …And Kulgan, if she comes to you to enquire something again, can you deal with her appropriately in a thoughtful manner without giving any denial or affirmation?”

“Of course I won’t affirm anything, but should I really not negate any of her unjust suspicions?”

 

 

Perhaps unable to grasp the intention behind my instruction, Kulgan furrowed his eyebrows and showed a perplexed expression.

Facing his reaction, I nodded and smiled as usual.

 

 

“Yeah, don’t deny it as well. From what she can perceive from your reaction, I wonder what kind of movement she will make. That’s what I want her to show me. …Since Bertia and Marquis Noches haven’t done anything shady, then there shouldn’t be a problem, right?”

 

 

I gave a half-smile and sent Kulgan a profound gaze.

For the others, it might seem that my words earlier contained too little information to be executed, and they weren’t able to surmise my intention. However, it seems what I wanted to say was conveyed well enough for Kulgan to understand with just that.

 

 

“I see. As expected of Your Highness! However, will my little sister… will Bertia-sama be exposed to any danger that way?”

Kulgan showed his cold and satisfactory expression, but the next moment, perhaps because he thought of Bertia, he slightly scowled in concern.

 

 

I don’t really care on why he seemed to be worried… No, I do care, after all! Why did you address Bertia as [my little sister] just now?

Could it be that you’ve been addressing her like that deep inside your heart, and that it carelessly left your mouth just now?

…It might be necessary for me to find an opportunity to discuss this with him.

 

“I won’t let my fiancée, Tia, be exposed to any danger. For that reason, we won’t be attacking until [the very last moment]. Avoid provoking Baroness Heronia and just monitor her thoughts and movements for now. Even if she were to attack, it’s important to just skillfully evade her attacks without making any counter attacks until that time. …Fortunately, Bertia has agreed to promise me that she will increase her time with me, so all of you should use the same pretext to increase your time together with your beloved person. During the time when they can’t be together with us, if you remind them to stay alert, the girls are smart so they will surely be able to protect one another, won’t they?”
 

“With all due respect, the other noble girls might be like that, but I feel like if we try to warn Bertia-sama, she will react to the contrary and charge ahead…”
Kulgan smiled bitterly, and somehow that smile seems to be filled with warm affection.

 

 

Yes. I know Bertia very well. I think so, too.

…It’s just, I wonder what I should think of this mood arising from him gazing lovingly at the actions of the cute little sister who’s not that far apart from him in age?

She might be your little sister, but she isn’t your lover or fiancée, okay?

 

 

“…That’s right. I think so, too. That’s why I’d be pleased if you could try to conceal this matter from Bertia, all right?”

Once I turned my eyes to take a glance at everyone inside the room one by one, all of them seriously nodded.

Because everyone here has been baptized by Bertia somehow, obviously they would understand the terrifying consequences of giving Bertia any excessive information.

(L: 洗礼を受けている → receive baptism… you serious dude??? | S: Omg Bertia XD)

 

 

…Because there have been occasions where she acts in a simple and pure manner without any good or bad intentions.

(L: To put it in harsh(?) words: she acts as she sees fit without even thinking of it? | S: yes exactly TvT)

 

“Well then, for the moment, unless Baroness Heronia moves in a very dangerous manner, just evade her temporarily and gather information while keenly observing her, okay? We shall hand down the final judgement… let’s see, shall we set the timing as the graduation ceremony?”
 

From Bertia’s talk about the [otome game] and according to the [scenario], surely Baroness Heronia will move at that time, right?

Still, there is no way I can talk about it with everyone here, so as long as I choose the time limit based on a plausible reason such as [I want to settle everything while we are still in the school as a third year students. That’s why, I’m limiting the time to be at our graduation ceremony], they would agree without any suspicion.

After that, as long as we arrange the preparations until then… it would be sufficient to just wait for the other side to make their action while protecting Bertia.

 

 

Aah, of course, I shall have Kulgan operate in various ways for the sake of those preparations.

So that he won’t have any opportunity to meet Bertia, of course he should be occupied.

 

 

“Now then, let’s look forward to how it will turn out?”

As I smiled with a brisk feeling after deciding the rough [scenario], everyone who’s present on the spot looked at me and smiled.

 

 

 

Why is it that, for some reason, those smiles seem very villainous?

…Well, should I conclude that it’s just my imagination?

  1. Oh dear, looks like the Heroine got the bad route. She deserves it!

      Yes, I can’t wait to see her reaction XD

    • Bad route? No, she just unlocked the final boss battle…in an otome game!!

      2 months late but I beg to differ! I saw it as the heroine wasn’t able to rack up her charisma points soon enough so now the villainess has unwittingly converted everyone else into a villain, which is such a funny and cute plot twist and I’m loving every chapter of it ^v^

  2. He’s starting to become jealous XD
    Bertia has been promoted from a past time to a beloved fiance 😀

  3. Thank you for the chapter!

  4. Thanks for the new chapter!

    Everyone became villanous because of the supposed villanous character… 😂😂

  6. Haha 😂 this is hilarious!
    Can’t wait for the next chapter 😍
    Thanks for the chapter ❤~

  7. Thank you very much for the chapter.
    Aww i really wanna see some kulgan and Bertia interaction now😍

  8. The heroine just dived straight into the bad end. And Bertia by being cute, helpful and simple has endeared herself to the capture targets to make them the villains. Truly a Splendid First Class Villainess!

  9. Kulgan must really want Bertia as a sister. Don’t misunderstand Prince, but please be jealous for our entertainment. Thanks for the update.

  10. it would be funny if they act as bertia sceming and when graduation ceremony bertia smile at heroine fall.
    ah, that seem really villainess.
    thanks for the chapter. i love u so much.

  11. well in Otome game there is always the little brother target , is just normal if Kulgan fell for Bertia.

    but is funny when Cecil is jealousy

  12. I smell something fishy here~

    Thanks for the update!

  13. do they really have to go to all this work just for a crazy woman, just focus on sealing that damn bird

    • The damn bird is only half, wait no, only 25% of the problem.
      the rest is divided between Bertia herself and the “heroin” – Bertia because she won’t accept her happiness and seem to know something she isn’t willing to share, and the “heroin” is way too persistent and annoying for her own good, being a spoiler even though there is no meaning for it and even doing to multiple targets instead of focusing her attention on one person.

      • plp only believed her cause of the bird, saying its 25% is giving her way too much credit, all shes doing is playing the victim and attacks everyones fiances. In real life people will laugh at her and distance themselves especially since shes attacking the fiances of the prince and all his friends. Get rid of the mind controlling bird and shes done, maybe seal her light abilities too to top it off

  14. Glad none of the Otome games I played have a rival character… Otherwise I’ll feel bad about it.. 😂

    Oh wait.. one of Harvest moon’s game I played does have a rival!!! Now I feel pretty bad.. 😱

    Thanks for the chapters!! Hope you will keep translating this till the end! XD

      Hmmm come to think about it… That’s right, I have played many otome games without rival characters!! Now I’m interested to play some with rival characters XD

      Harvest Moon… oh right, I also forgot lol xD

      I want to translate this till the end because that’s also how I read and digest the chapter, hehe! Otherwise, I would be too lazy and end up not knowing the end of the story T^T

  15. Thank you for the new chapter! And thank you so much for picking this up!!! I gave up hope around chapter 9 since it was last updated in 2017 but then when I checked on whim, it was update by you. Thank you for all you hard work! I really enjoyed your translations 🙂

      Yeah, this was originally a novel I enjoyed reading, so that was why I decided to pick this series up rather than waiting without any update~!

  16. Hello! Thank you so much for pick up this project! The story is so good just to abandon it!
