Chapter 23: An interesting development?
Recently I’ve writing too much perverted stuff that, although it was fun, my HP is at a dangerous level.
My HP is so low that it will be over in one shot, so please go easy on me.
Eight days passed since the last conversation. Since we set the next meeting to be after ten days, we won’t be having any meetings for the next two days.
We decided to gather more information as well as deduce what we can until the next meeting.
Thanks to that, our usual teatime at the dining hall revived. I still don’t like having to be exposed to the pervert’s sight, but it’s better than relying on Daniel for everything.
Getting information from someone else and seeing with my own eyes is different, and I could concoct a more effective plan.
I also want everyone to realise how perverted and dangerous Brad is. I already told them to not approach him along with the reason why not, but I thought that might not be enough.
Thus, although it may be dangerous, I thought I should show his nature to everyone. If they feel for themselves his abnormality, I don’t think anyone will approach him on their own.
Though, it didn’t seem like anything bad was going to happen just by getting into his sight, and it didn’t seem like a plan was undergoing.
If there is anything ‘strange’……
It would be that I could feel his sleazy gaze when Daniel is serving us tea?
To me, it felt as though he was targetting at Daniel……
If that is the case…… then he is one really reckless person……
When Daniel appears, the air around Brad changes. Maybe I’m just imagining it, but even his glasses seem to shine brighter than usual……
I saw hallucinations of purple roses every time too, making my face twitch.
Just what is that? That mood of an aesthete……
I’m quite sure that Daniel too felt is gaze, but neither his expression nor his behaviour changed.
Though for me, I felt frightened at that consistency.
It’s as if he’s just fanning the flames.
I can’t help but think that if you smile at me like that?
You’re instigating Brad, right?
Daniel-san, please don’t involve me in that……
Then, about Michelle……
For some reason, her distance with Jackie, the out of focus character, was closing in.
From the start, Jackie was her follower, but he was not very enthusiastic.
It felt like he was doing ‘because he’s in the group’, since he was never that close with Michelle’s other followers.
However, I can feel a sweet mood between them as of late.
Additionally, he’s somewhat balancing it so that he’s not fanning the flames of jealousy, sorta?
If the yandere Henry’s distance with Michelle is either too close or too far, he will go on a rampage of jealousy and possessiveness, so we have to tread lightly around him.
If he does go on a rampage at this level, it’s probably straight to the imprisonment course.
As for the bespectacled bastard Brad, since there is a high chance that he will kidnap people, if he becomes envious there is a possibility that he will become an even more dangerous yandere than Henry.
Brad route’s happy end is ‘a happy married life where Brad is brutish yet kind’, but if it’s the bad end, ‘she is trained by that brute and live out her life like a slave’.
According to Michelle, it’s possible to be trained as a ‘human toilet’ in the R-18 edition.
The spoiled brat Hughie also has the possibility to fling about in anger if he’s instigated.
In his happy end, they become a cute couple, like some high school students. However, in the bad end, Hughie stalks Michelle and ultimately kills her.
As reference, here are the endings of other characters.
First, in the happy ending with Prince Kyle, Angelica is married away to some other country and Michelle becomes the legal wife.
In the bad end, she becomes his concubine, but that’s it. She doesn’t receive his love, she doesn’t have authority in the palace, and she couldn’t even bear a child.
It sorta looks as if a dangerous was quarantined as a concubine……
Although he’s already out of the picture, Robert is the easiest conquer. Most choices raise his affection, that it’s actually harder to get the bad end, or even the normal end.
In some way, he’s the biggest obstacle to clearing the whole game.
In the happy ending, Michelle becomes the wife of the Royal Guard Captain, receiving even the blessing of Jessica.
In this ending, Jessica says, ‘I’ll also be happier than Robert-sama,’ but now I know what that meant.
Louis probably did some things behind the scenes.
As for the extremely rare bad ending, it only happens if Michelle badmouths Jessica in front of her.
This is quite hard, as you have to find Jessica within three days after the annulment of betrothal even.
Also, if you can improve your relation with Jessica, the story progresses to the normal ending.
Somehow…… in Robert’s route, the shadow of Louis is ubiquitous.
In the happy ending, he gets over his past well, and the two of them live a peaceful life, while Douglas becomes the advisor to the prince.
In the bad ending, unable to get over the past, Douglas treats Michelle like a doll, as a substitute for his dead fiancée.
In retrospect, his state at the annulment event might have been the overture for heading into the bad ending.
Now, about the topic of debate, Jackie.
His route is rather unusual. In the happy ending he settles in the Empire and they live happily.
In the bad ending, he goes into exile, wandering the lands like an adventurer.
As to how the normal ending is achieved.
It’s possible to achieve normal ending with any character by raising the affection level above a certain threshold, but not becoming lovers.
However, in Michelle’s case, she raised the affection levels to the maximum when she was Bitch, so there is no possibility of a normal ending.
They’re all yanderes, does that mean Bitch managed them all with her natural abilities……
I don’t it’s possible for the current Michelle to do that. She’s too tenderhearted for this. It’s too much of a burden for an ordinary Japanese high school girl.
That’s why I ordered Daniel to reveal his presence, so they get the message, ‘I’m watching you. Don’t try anything funny.’
I hope this keeps them on check, at least a little, so that Michelle may be a little safer.
However, Michelle was unexpected good at controlling them.
I could no longer find that awkward she had when she just reincarnated, nor does she feel like Bitch.
At first, I thought she was dealing with the situation quite well thanks to the merged memories……
But upon further observation, that was not the case.
I think Jackie is controlling everything behind the scenes.
He smoothly creates space for himself and Michelle, while taking care not to get too close to her……
He’s acting so naturally and stealthily, I don’t think anyone noticed yet, really? Well, Michelle knows and is moving to his direction, so maybe they’re planning in advance?
I could also feel some resolve in Jackie’s blue-grey eyes when he looks at Michelle.
It’s the eyes that Louis and I have towards Jessica and Angelica, respectively. ‘I’ll protect her.’
From that gaze, I could tell that he’s on Michelle’s side.
However, to protect Michelle, he looks like he’s willing to sacrifice us, so we can’t yet say that he is ally.
Still, since we can’t openly help Michelle, I’m thankful that he’s Michelle’s ally.
Already, I’m like, ‘I leave Michelle to you!’
Could he be a reincarnator?
My suspicions grew stronger every day. However, the next meeting is tomorrow.
Well, I’ll leave that for tomorrow, and I’ll focus on observation for now, to gather more information.
For example, Henry’s butler, who’s been watching us recently……
Daniel was worried about it too.
Butlers have their ‘domain’, so even if they are ordered by their masters, they to don’t involve themselves in war or crime.
So I don’t think that they will try anything drastic, but his gaze is disturbing……
Henry too must have seen our reactions, for he was talking about us to his butler.
Without a doubt, Henry is scheming something with his butler.
Well, since I’m also using my butler it’s not strange for him to do so as well. It’s just the way he’s using him.
It’s different, using a butler for protection and using a butler for schemes.
I don’t think butlers, who value the ‘domain’, will lend a hand to that, so I don’t think that it’s going to be a serious problem……
But I should keep it in mind.
The day of the information exchange.
The visitor was not just Michelle, but also another man, whom we expected to a certain extent: Jackie.
If I die, since I don’t have enough G to go to church, please cast Kazing on me.
It has 100% chance to work unlike Zing. (Dragon Quest reference)
Gosh, this one was long. Enjoy!
