Sarara-sama was chatting with Kaburagi-papa. I’ll bet it was some crazy hardcore book discussion. Would I be bothering them?
As I hesitated, Chairman Kaburagi noticed me first.

“Good evening, Reika-san. My wife and her friends were looking forward to seeing you, you know?”

“Good evening. Thank you for giving me the chance to see such beautiful cherry blossoms. The beauty of the weeping sakura was incredible.”

“It honours us that you enjoyed it.”

His smile was as dignified and dreamy as always. How nice. If I had a man like this as my dad I’d show him off everywhere.

“Sarara-sama, gokigen’yoh.”

“Gokigen’yoh, Reika-sama.”

Sarara-sama also welcomed me with a smile. I was still worried about disturbing them though. She seemed to be having so much fun.

“Am I perhaps interrupting? Please pay me no heed and continue talking.”

“Not at all, Reika-san. I was just telling her about how I found a rare book in Germany the other day.”

Germany!? Don’t tell me it was Kaburagi-papa who suggested Heine to him!?

“…Might it have been a Heine?”

“No? It wasn’t. Are you partial to Heine, Reika-san?”

“No,” I immediately replied.

I wonder if he wouldn’t take responsibility as a father and take his son’s love poem anthology back.

“It looks like Takateru-kun isn’t attending today.”

“Yes. My brother was simply too busy at work, unfortunately. We are terribly sorry.”

“Don’t worry about it. Words of how impressive he is at work reached me too. Anyhow, just having you here is enough, Reika-san.”

Hauu, what a dazzling smile.

“Chairman Kisshouin and your older brother have been hiding you away like a treasure, so I don’t often get a chance you meet you.”

“Goodness.”

“I hear you really get along with your Otousama. The other day you knitted a lap blanket for your beloved Otousama, right?”

“Well, hohoho.”

I never said beloved anything, Tanuki! It looks like you haven’t learnt your lesson if you’re still going around exaggerating things. You’ll learn when I get home, just you wait.

“I heard that when you were little you said you’d marry him when you got older. Ahh, how envious.”

Haah!? Not only was he unsatisfied with exaggerating things, this time he was even telling full-blown lies!?
Oniisama might be a different story, but not once had I ever said I wanted to marry Otousama! It’s lies and slander!
Was it that? Was Otousama going senile!?

“Reika-san,” said Sarara-sama, “You were a fathercon?”

Nooooooooooooo!!

“This is some incredible misunderstanding, Sarara-sama. I have no recollection of saying such a thing.”

Even after I tried my best to deny it, Kaburagi-papa simply nodded magnanimously.

“Ahh, puberty, of course. I suppose I must apologise. But you should know that your Otousama understands how you feel. Ahh, how nice. I wish I had a daughter that loved me that much.”

But you’re wrong! I’m offended that you think my ideal husband would be that chubby tanuki!
I mean, if my dad had been somebody like Kaburagi-papa then maybe I would have said that. But unfortunately my father was just a big-bellied tanuki.

“You know, Chairman Kisshouin sometimes complains about how closely you stick to him, but everyone can tell he’s happy about it.”

That lyingg tanukiii!!

I searched the venue for the tanuki. Lying tanuki get to be made into tanuki stew!!

It felt like I would just take more damage by staying there so I excused myself.
I had to do something about this reputation as a fathercon… My pride depended on this.

*

I spent the next while wandering the venue as I gazed at the cherry blossoms.
There was food all around that seemed delicious enough, but I still didn’t have the appetite.
I had technically eaten the Swiss roll Oniisama gave me as a get-well gift, but… I guess my stomach wasn’t up to full speed.

Drinking so much was going to mean a lot of trips to the bathroom. And I was cold too. Maybe a warm drink would help. They had probably run out of hot chocolate, so I tentatively decided on milk tea. Oh! They had jasmine milk tea.

Finding myself a seat, I was enjoying my milk tea when some guy stopped next to me.

“Good evening, Reika-san.”

“…Good evening.”

Who was this again? Oh crap, I couldn’t remember. He was… about Oniisama’s age? And cool-looking in a Japanese kind of way. Slender, light-skinned, almond-shaped eyes, hobby is probably traditional Japanese flute? You know the type. He looked really good in his kimono.
He seemed kind though… Seriously though, who was this!?

“I’m Ichinokura Haruto. I think this is our first time speaking. I hope we’ll get along.”

“My! It is a pleasure to meet you. Kisshouin Reika, at your service.”

What the heck. So this is the first time we’ve met? Thank goodness. I was so worried about how to fake remembering him.

“May I sit down?”

“Why yes, go ahead.”

So Ichinokura-san sat down next to me. He had champagne with him. Definitely over 20 then.

“I’ve actually come here to thank you, Reika-san.”

“Thank me?”

Huh. Didn’t he just say this was our first meeting?

“My niece was in your care, actually. Sawarabi Mao, from Suiran’s primary school section.”

“Aah! Mao-chan!”

Sawarabi Mao-chan was the little girl I met at the Pivoine Summer Party. The one who rang the bell with the boy. When I went to give her the photos she was so happy, and she called me Reika-oneesama and everything. That girl was just so cute!

“You know, Mao was telling everybody about how the wonderful Reika-oneesama was really good to her, and even told me the story a few times. You encouraged them while they were hesitating to ring the bell, right? Thank you for that. That girl was so happy that she hung up the photo you took in her room and won’t stop showing it off to people.”

“I see. I did very little but if Mao-chan was so happy about it then I am happy too. And truth be told, I was overjoyed to be called Reika-oneesama. Especially by somebody as cute as your niece.”

“Thank you. It was my first time having a niece so I might have spoilt her a bit. Before I knew it I was buying her everything she wanted.”

Ichinokura-san’s smile was extremely gentle whenever he spoke of his niece.
Maybe because of all the “distinctive” people around me, somebody tranquil like Ichinokura-san was really soothing to be around.

The two of us continued to chat about Mao-chan and life at Suiran. Ichinokura-san went to a famous boys school instead of Suiran so he was interested in hearing my opinions on Mao-chan’s school.

“By the way, Reika-san, have you eaten at all? You haven’t been doing anything except drinking. Should I get you some food?”

Mmmm… I don’t think it would fit.

“No, but thank you kindly.”

“Really? Have you already eaten then?”

“No. I suppose I have not eaten since coming here.”

Ichinokura-san looked at me in shock. Apparently it was past 8 already.

“Did you have dinner before coming here?”

“Well no.”

“Reika-san,” he started seriously, “Reika-san, are you really eating properly? You shouldn’t skip your meals. You look so delicate you’re about to snap.”

“Eh!?”

About to snap? Eh!? Me!? About to snap!?

‘You’re about to snap’ is one of the top ten things a girl wants to be told once in her life! (Source: The Reika Rankings)

You look like you’re about to snap… You look like you’re about to snap… You look like you’re about to snap…

Aahh… Ichinokura-san’s words were echoing endlessly in my head.

“About to snap…? I assure you that I am fine. I most assuredly enjoy all three meals a day, you know?”

“Really? You’re not lying?” he shot a half-suspicious look at me before offering again.

“What if I got you some fruit? Should I bring some?”

“No, I really am fine. I do not eat much…”

“Yeah, I can tell. But you really do need to eat properly, okay?”

“Yes. Thank you for your concern.”

Ichinokura-san gave a troubled smile.

“You’re really dainty, Reika-san, so I can’t help but worry.”

“Eh-!?”

Dainty!!

‘You’re so dainty’ is one of the top five things a girl wants to be told once in her life! (Source: The Reika Rankings)

You’re really dainty, Reika-san… You’re really dainty, Reika-san… You’re really dainty, Reika-san…

Aaah, I must be dreaming… I’m so glad I came today!

I was so happy that it felt like I’d grow wings and fly! Just “snap” and “dainty” were enough fuel to send me into the stratosphere!

And also Ichinokura-san had treated me from beginning to end like some fragile and delicate princess. “Are you cold?” he’d ask. “Are you tired?” he’d ask.
Thinking about it, he might have been the first person to ever treat me this way. …Guhuhu, I’m so happy.
Oh no, I think I might really fall for him…

Kisshouin Reika, 16 years of age. May have found a new love.


Celebrate with me!

  1. Reika- Sammaaaa~~~
    *sigh* guess we just can’t help it if our darling falls in love again… She might be demoted as Kaburagi’s comrad XD (not that I think this will go anywhere)
    Thank you.

    1. Oi, it’s dangerous. And I mean, really dangerous. You see, Kaburagi thinks Reika is his comrade in being siblingzoned and that she still loves Tomoe (like he still likes Yurie). Then his “comrade” quickly falls in love with some random guy that she sees for the first time. She is a traitor, a bad woman, who treat feelings (like love) lightly. Then, Kaburagi, the mentally unstable guy who thought about committing suicide after being siblingzoned, cannot forgive Reika for easily falling in love with someone else. He goes full yandere, but without the dere part. He may decide (on his own), that it’s better for her to die while she still hold even sliver of her feelings for Tomoe.

      1. Or he interprets it as the best method to moving on being forcing yourself to like another person and it backfires even worse on Reika than in your scenario because he decides to pursue her romantically to get over the each others “heartbreak.”

  2. Falling in love huh? Well, he seems nice. Hope it goes well.

    If there are any problems with his personality then her friends and family will be sure to warn her. And she’s the type that actually listens to people.

    “Oh! They had jasmine milk tea.”

    This reminds me about how Reika got out of her “commoner” mindset very early on in the story. It was completely gone by middle school.

    I suppose the ‘snap’ part is referring to how he thinks she’s thin as a twig? I’ve never heard it used quite like that before.

    P.s is it weird that I can picture Reika-sama screeching “Tanukiiiii~!” in a high pitched voice while biting into a handkerchief so vividly ? Lol

    and why does reika treat her father so badly? doesnt she know that “that” is the reason his fathers does that kind of things? is karma

    and why reika T-T, you can pursue the best friend of your brother, he does count as your childhood friend too, go for him.

    1. issue with Imari is that when they’re “flirting”, its entirely innocent. Hes just doing it to tease his best friend and sees her as nothing more than a little sister as he himself has mentioned. I dont think she seriously views him as a love interest either. She does seem to prefer people like him, Kaburagi’s dad, her brother etc tho. Mature, slightly older men.

      Which also means…RIP Kaburagi and Enjou. That ship died before it got a chance to set sail.

  6. Lol! I can’t wait to find out what are the other points in the Reika Rankings!!

    Reika probably looked somewhat pale because of her stomach, and she was wearing light colored clothes too, + not having been seen eating anything at the party, + the guy having a thing for spoiling girls…

    He’s like a grandma. ‘Oh dear look at you!! You are so thin!! ‘

    But let’s not say that to Reika xD

    Although I do want to see a new chance at love for her!

    But hey new love? Could this new guy be the whole new love sent by the Bakaburagi love poem anthology? 😂

    And The Reika source….that’s like worst than wikipedia and definitely a very unreliable source btw the whole I don’t eat much from Reika-sama….. ٩(͡๏̯͡๏)۶ err…yeah sure. Reika-sama

  9. Have we ever be given some idea where does Reika and her family stand now in the society. In the manga Masaya and Enjou were richer than her, but what now ? Her father hasn’t done anything shady and her brother is too competent, so like, are they at the same level as the top dogs.

    1. Yeah, my (darker) headcannon is that they were set up… plot twist, it was dark!oniisama in an attempt to take over his father’s company with his own independent company; plot twist twist, it was actually an Enjou/Kaburagi scheme to set up the Kisshouin corp because of some wacky shoujo manga reason.

      But nonetheless, I want to know too :)

      Liked by 3 people

    2. I don’t think it was ever mentioned whether the Kaburagis and Enjous were that much richer, just that the Kaburagis were a much more prestigious clan in terms of past noble rank.

      My best guess is that nothing much actually changed. I think Kisshouin was very highly regarded by the Kaburagis even back in the other timeline and wasn’t really destroyed until all their dirty laundry aired out.

      I say this because the previous Reika managed to force a fake engagement and because Mama Kaburagi was initially against Masaya+Takamichi. So it gives me the impression that Reika can do almost nothing to make the Kaburagi parents actually hate her, just so long as she keeps up the sweet ojousama act. The only people who seem to ultimately matter is Masaya and Shuusuke and they’re both chill with her.

      There also might be a lot of minor enemies that the other Kaburagi clan made in the other timeline (employees in the company or other minor aristocrat clans), but they’re well-behaved in this timeline so I doubt there are any bad feelings toward them from that quarter. Reika’s only major enemies are Maihama and Tsuruhana’s faction. But both daughters aren’t well-liked and are vastly outnumbered by Reika’s faction.

      1. maihama ? major ennemy ? you’re giving her way too much credit…

        1. The marshmallow can be any kind of food really. I just picked it as a convenient stand-in. It could be cake or a bag of chips or whatever. The general principle of the thing is that Reika would be happy to oblige the bag of chips which then cheerfully celebrate their illicit love together.
