Reika-sama – 115

Everybody, please check the FAQ first before asking me questions.
If it’s not on there, please feel free and ask. I only get annoyed at questions when the same one has been asked 10+ times, and by then I’ll have updated the FAQ. Thank you for your consideration, guys!

Apparently we were slowly gaining new members. I say ‘apparently’ because I wasn’t there to see it myself. Actually I wasn’t allowed to interact with them directly.
According to Club Pres, my title as a Pivoine member was scaring away some of the newer students, so she hoped that I would make myself scarce just for the duration of the recruitment period.

I couldn’t really fault that logic. Everyone who joined that club was the same timid and quiet type, so I could see how they might be afraid of us. In Suiran, the Pivoine were like the ultimate predators, after all. The one group that you shouldn’t ever offend.

I knew that feeling too. But I was an official member of the Handicrafts Club. Wasn’t there any way I could help!?

Anyhow, I was sitting in a corner and needle-felting, sparing the occasional glance at the visiting students, when one of them called out to me falteringly. Heck yes!

“Did you have a question?”

“Yes. I was hoping somebody could tell me about the sewing machine that this club uses, but…”

Sewing machine?

I wasn’t proud of this, but I had never used it before. Actually I sucked at them in general. Things just got out of hand, and then the threads started to get tangled and… Anyhow, it was just hard. Come to think of it, when I was younger the threads got tangled and the sewing machine stopped moving. So I tried yanking it out, but the struggle ended with the machine giving off smoke. Machinery was difficult to use, wasn’t it.

But it was a chance to help. I decided to try my best!

“What did you want to know about it?”

“I wanted to know which company made the overlock sewing machines. Also whether or not you had any 4-thread overlocks.”

…What on earth was an overlock machine. And what was this about 4-threads?

“I’ve only ever used a 3-thread. I was hoping to get the chance to try my hand at a 4-thread.”

???

Oh no. I was trying my best but it was all Greek to me…

But I was an official club member. I couldn’t let her know.

“…Please wait a moment. I am a little tied up at the moment, so I will find somebody to answer your questions. You wanted to know about overlock sewing machines, yes?”

Anybody! Isn’t there anybody who knows about these “overlocked machines”!?

While I was looking for somebody who could answer, another one of the visitors came up to that girl and said,

“That miss over there is a member of the Pivoine, you know! You can’t just send her on chores like that, what if you make them angry!?”

I returned with a girl who knew more about the topic but Overlock-chan said,

“I’m so sorry! I’m an External Student and only joined this year, so I really had no idea!”

earnestly apologising to me.

It wasn’t a problem at all, though… I was just pretending to be busy so I didn’t have to explain. So seriously, please don’t look so scared of me~ I’m part of the commoner-faction, you know?

Maybe I should learn more about sewing machines…

Around that time, Ririna showed up with her buddies in tow.

“Geez, Reika-san! What a boring club you’ve joined!”

That stupid girl!

Flames of rage were beginning to grow in my heart but she had a lot of followers. If she joined the club, wouldn’t we get a whole wave of members!?

“Goodness, welcome, Ririna-san. Did you have some interest in handicrafts?” I asked as graciously as possible but…

“As if! Like I’d ever join such a minor club. I just came to make fun of you!”

Since that was the case, I immediately kicked her out.

Unfortunately some of the other club prospectives happened to see it all, and they ran away in fear. Curse you, Ririnaaaa!

Club President put her hand on my back, and gently returned me to my corner. This time a bunch of mannequin torsos were set in front of me like a wall.

It was a little lonely here…

Class Rep was looking gloomy. When I asked him what was wrong, it turned out that Miharu-chan was getting along with a boy in her class.

“We’re in different classes too. Looks like I’m at a major disadvantage, huh? What do I do. Do you think Honda-san really likes him?”

“Hmmm.”

I wasn’t all that close with her or anything, but maybe I would have a chance to ask her. Class Rep looked desolate.
Thinking about it, wasn’t Nonose-san friendly with Miharu-chan? I saw them having lunch together quite a lot.

“Shall I find out for you?”

“Eh!? You would do that!? Thank you, Kisshouin-san!”

The maiden beamed with surprised joy. I didn’t mind doing this but what was he going to do if she really did like somebody?

*

The next day I greeted Nonose-san in the morning, and used that as an exchange to engage in some small talk. Obviously I couldn’t just walk up and demand she explain Miharu-chan’s relationship with him.

“I still owe you for taking care of me during the summer camp in middle school. Thank you for supporting me, especially while I was struggling with leading. I have ended up as a class representative again, but I hope for your continued support.”

“Of course! I don’t know how I can help but if I can then I will. Wow though. Summer camp. That’s nostalgic.”

We had fun chatting about it for a while.

“Come to think of it, Miharu-san attends every year, but she was strangely absent the one year I attended.”

“Oh, now that you mention it she did miss out. I remember mailing her while I was there.”

“Oh my. What did you say?”

“Ummm… I’ve forgotten. Probably something about the fireworks.”

“I see. It would have been nice to be in the same class together.”

“Yes. We thought it was a shame too.”

“I see. Had Miharu-san been in our class, she would certainly have been the class representative instead. And she gets along with Class Rep.”

“You think…? I think Class Rep makes a better pair with you, Reika-sama. What do you think of him?”

“Class Rep? I suppose I find him earnest and diligent?”

“I thought so~! Reika-sama, you’re close with Iwamuro-kun from the Judo Club too, aren’t you? What do you think about him?”

“Iwamuro-kun, you ask? Why, I think he is a man who knows what he wants, and is willing to put in the effort as well.”

Ever since I gave him that facial mask, apparently he never stopped maintaining his skin. Thanks to that, he could boast the most flawless skin in the Judo Club.

“I see~”

I didn’t know why, but Nonose-san was nodding in enjoyment. Who cares about me, we’re supposed to talk about Miharu-chan.

“Speaking of boys, is Miharu-san close with any in her new class?”

“Boys? Hmmm, I can’t say I’ve heard her say anything like that. Oh my, Reika-sama, you’re actually interested in these kinds of gossip?”

“Eh-, I, well…”

“I’d love to hear more about your romances~ Ah, but I suppose I shouldn’t ask, right?”

She looked a little disappointed. Uh, no, I actually don’t have any wonderful stories to tell.

“Every love rumour we hear about you is romantic. I’m envious.”

“Huh? Love rumour?”

“Like the love poem anthology. The story had me spellbound. The chamberlain and mercenary just weren’t the best choice. Reika-sama, I’ll support you!”

“Eh? Chamberlain? Mercenary?”

I had no idea what she was talking about but the bell rang so our conversation was cut short.

What on earth was that…?

But she mentioned something I couldn’t ignore. Love poem anthology. Don’t tell me she was talking about Kaburagi!? What on earth was romantic about that!? It was a cursed item, damnit!

Class Rep glanced my way during class, but sorry. I didn’t get anything out of it.

*

Dite came and pressed me about the performance for our class trip.
Sorry, I forgot.
He handed me a CD and asked me to choose one of the tracks on it. Apparently he had recorded his violin performances.

Did I really have to listen to this…?

        1. The ████████ remains sealed behind the Wall of Mannequins and is weighed down by some creepy dolls and a cursed anthology of love poems acquired from ████████. Asset is of highest priority to Village Chief Instrumentality Project.

          If a Loli were to breach the defenses and meet with the ████████, a catastrophe of ████████ is predicted to occur. Removal of the anthology is provided for under PRIORITY ALPHA TANGO emergencies, at the discretion of the commanding officer of the Crafts Club for further defense of the asset. Any decision made is subject to later review by chair members of PIVOINE.

    Poor Reika…

  4. Those handicraft guys are definitely regretting letting Reika join.

    Haha, those ignorant externals. She isn’t just a Pivoine. She’s Kisshouin goddamn Reika.

    Being first years those guys probably know about Ririna. Seeing someone casually pushing Ririna around would certainly be terrifying.

    1. FUCK YEAH. Those Externals better not mess with Kisshouin MoFo Reika. She’ll give them cookies. And tea!

  5. In the girls’ eyes:
    – Poem anthology = a romantic story of Emperor and Empress
    – Mercenary = a forbidden love of the Empress and a commoner
    – Chamberlain = love story of Princess and her bodyguard
    In Reika’s eyes:
    – Poem anthology = cursed item
    – Mercenary = maiden in love
    – Chamberlain = maiden in the other world

    Lol

    1. I believe you have the mercenary and chamberlain mixed up; mecenas is Iwamuro-kun that is in another world, and chamberlain refers to Class Rep that is the maiden in love.

  9. Thank you very much for the chapters again, Este-san. just want to point a few things though..

    According to Club Pres, my title as a Pivoine member was scaring away ‘from’ of the newer students, shouldn’t it be ‘form’? (also not too sure of this)

    I had no idea what she was talking about but the bell rang so our conversation was ‘cute’ short. it supposed to be ‘cut’ right?

    Reika attempt in repairing the sewing machine is really no good, wondering whether in her past life she’s actually had a talent for breaking a tool? ironically though my grandma would call it having a iron hand.. 😂

    I’ve only ever used a 3-thread. I was hoping to get the chance to try my hand at a 4-thread.”

    ???

    Oh no. I was trying my best but it was all Greek to me…
    It’s not only you Reika-chan, I also can’t understand the term at all..😂

  10. and from Reika’s description Yukino seems so cute.. a little angel with amber hair😍 why not Reika just adopt him as her little brother? i am sure Yukino himself will not mind😛 unfortunately Shuusuke onii-sama will not allow it though.. 😂
    also I think I forgot.. does the Afrodite guy actually have a talent or not? in violin I mean.. have it ever mentioned before?😆

  11. Thanks for the chapter!

    The president of the handicraft club is more willful than expected, putting Reika-sama behind a wall of mannequins~ Also not related to the chapter but I can’t wait to see the blood bath that her brother will make when Reika ends up with someone (or finds out that she has a ‘crush’ on Imari, probably from Ichinokura).

    1. Actually in retrospect, it would most likely be one of the girls from the cram school or a rumour? Regardless, I feel bad for Imari lol.

    2. I think it’s more that the Handicraft club is like Chamberlain-kun. They just figured out that Reika is a big ol’ softy.

      Which is good, Reika needs more genuine friends who interact with her for who she is instead of treating her like a red hot poker to be avoided.

      Like

  12. It feels really weird to see people ship Reika with Kaburagi. IMO Maihama really is the best type for him since no sane woman is ever going to put up with his real personality. That level of obsession is required for a woman to be capable of looking past his character flaws.
    He’s rude, incapable of ANY affection until after months of bullying and mistreating other people as subhuman, resorts to physical violence and the infliction of pain, overly pedantic, violently possessive, and about a dozen other bad traits. Yurie thought he was an angel and she still couldn’t put up with him. Nothing short of a borderline yandere (or gold digger) will agree to tolerate such a man.
    Maihama is the one for Kaburagi and he needs to just accept that instead of cursing Reika with his evil..

  13. I wonder when we’ll get another POV? I cant wait!!! And too bad no more chapters guess ill go to sleep. I shall dream of the legend of Reika and her forever alone and single village. *salute*
    Ty fo the chapter!
