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!

In order to maintain Mao-chan’s image of me, I was going to work hard at cram school once again.

Next time I was aiming for rank 25. For now I was just taking little steps. But one day…

With renewed determination in my heart I opened my exercise book. It was around that time that Umewaka-kun and his friends arrived.

“Hey Kisshouin-san,” he said, “I just heard but apparently the guy over by the door, second row from the front, is actually from Suiran too. Do you know him?”

“Eh?”

This was the first I’d heard of any Suiran student going to my cram school. I squinted to get a better look at him but I had no idea who he was.

“I cannot say that I do… I suspect that we have simply never had a class together.”

“Really? But he seems to know you, Kisshouin-san.”

“Truly?”

“I hear he only started coming to this cram school this year. If you’re from the same school, maybe you could talk to him?”

“I suppose I could.”

Since he was from Suiran I decided I should at least greet him.
It wasn’t possible now that our teacher had arrived but I could do so during the break.

When that break came around, I walked over to him but when he saw me his expression turned obviously frightened. Eh? How come?

“I have been told that you attend Suiran. Might this be true?”

“Ah! Yes…”

Apparently this diligent and somewhat plain-looking boy was named Tagaki-kun, and had entered the high school as an External.

“My name is Kisshouin Reika. May we get along.”

“Yes, I know who you are of course…” he said oddly fearfully.

Come on, is there really a need to be like that?

“What class are you in, Tagaki-kun? Who do you attend Suiran with?”

“Ummm… I’m in Enjou-san’s class…”

“Enjou-sama?”

Didn’t that mean he was in the same class as Wakaba-chan?

“Then that would place you with Takamichi-san. Are you close with her?”

“Eh!? No, not particularly…”

“I see. What is she like in class? Does she have friends?”

“Ah… I think she does…”

So she made friends too. Thank goodness. I was worried she would be completely isolated. It made sense though, since it wasn’t like the whole school hated her. Only some people hated her. Some rather troublesome people, though.
Before I returned to my seat, I told him to talk to me if he had any questions since he was attending here alone.

“He was from Suiran, right?”

“Yes. But because our classes are different he is honestly little more than a stranger. He seems to know of me, however.”

“What’s this? Kisshouin-san, are you famous at your school?”

“Kisshouin-san stands out after all~”

“Actually,” I explained, “I have been attending Suiran since primary school, which is why I am better-known than those who joined later.”

By some chance my eyes passed over Tagaki-kun’s back. Maybe he noticed somehow because he turned around and our eyes met before he quickly turned away. Hmmm~ I wonder how he saw me…

“Oh? Kisshouin-san, could he be scared of you?”

Leave it alone, please.

Later at home I got an email from Bea-tan.

“Do your best! I’m your friend, Reika-tan! Your confidante, Beatrice.”

Thank you, Bea-tan…

On a clear, beautiful morning, I bumped into Enjou at the entrance to the school building.

“Morning, Kisshouin-san.”

“Good morning, Enjou-sama.”

And then for some reason we ended up heading to class together. We passed by a number of girls who stopped to stare at him in a daze.
I was so jealous… I wasn’t even doing anything but pretty much every boy averted his eyes from me in fear…

“What’s wrong, Kisshouin-san?”

“Nothing.”

“I see,” he smiled brightly.

Some of the girls watching on began squealing.

“Are you not with Kaburagi-sama on this morning?”

“Well it’s not like we go to school together. Wait, don’t tell me you think that each morning we happily ride the same car here? Wouldn’t that be pretty creepy for two high school boys? We go to school at the same time, so I guess we bump into each other a lot.”

“My, is that how it was?”

But I’ve seen you two get out of the same car a few times, yanno.

Maybe he noticed something from my expression because he added,

“Speaking of which, there actually was a period when I went to pick him up. I couldn’t really take my eyes off him at the time. I still have to thank you for your help back then.”

Enjou flashed another smile.

…Back then, huh.

“It was thanks to you risking life and limb that we somehow got Masaya to cheer up. Thanks again.”

“You are welcome…”

The way he worded that particularly annoyed me. So he was the one who made me out to be a reject woman!

“And it looks like my brother has been in your care too. The other day he brought home this toy that he said you taught him to make.”

“Oh, the snow rabbit!”

Yukino-kun. He was a pure-white little angel-chan, unlike his wicked black-hearted older brother. I prayed that he wouldn’t be led astray by Enjou’s evil influence.

“So it’s called needle felting. I had no idea you had that kind of hobby. My brother was quite happy about it.”

“I see. Then it makes me happy that he enjoyed it.”

I thought back on his innocent smile and couldn’t help but smile myself.

“It seems that the snow rabbit had special importance to him. He told me about how you and Kaburagi-sama built snowmen for him. You really spoil him, Enjou-sama.”

“Well, we’ve got quite an age difference after all. And he hasn’t got the best constitution either. Doesn’t your own brother spoil you quite a bit too? Why according to the rumours, you’re practically a brocon, Kisshouin-san. Although lately it’s been leaning towards fathercon instead.”

Tanuki!

“It is certainly true that my brother and I have always been close, but I have not the faintest idea how the accusations of being a fathercon came about.”

“Ohh? I see.”

Enjou gave an amused smile.

Still under the gaze of other girls, we walked together as far as the front of his classroom, before he stopped at the door-frame.

“Oh, by the way,” he muttered, “Is it because you love your much older brother so much that your taste is also for older men?”

“Eh?”

Enjou grinned at me and then headed inside.
…Scary. Who was he talking about just now?

Feeling gloomy despite the nice weather, I headed for my own classroom when a small racket caught my attention. It was an excited-looking Nonose-san and Miharu-chan.

“I told you that the chamberlain wasn’t suited for the princess! A princess needs a prince!”

“But I was rooting for the chamberlain.”

“Why not console him?”

Whatever it was, they seemed to be having fun chatting about it.

Nonose-san and Miharu-chan went and called out to Class Rep. He seemed delighted that Miharu-chan was coming over to talk to him.

As for me, Ru’ne-chan and the others mobbed me and asked what Enjou and I were chatting to happily about.

  1. Thank you for the chapter! This stream of cha[ters should never stop! But Reika, you do realize that asking about “her” sounds like you’re going to attack her, right… And damn Tanuki, trying to twist Reika’s image! Although it’s hard to make it fall even lower… But ENOJU KNOWS HE’S A STAlKER.

Id say its because she had a crush that the strangely observant Bakaburagi noticed, so Im sure Enjou also became aware that Reika had the hots for Tomoe Senpai, then later she may have been seen with Imari, and later food trap Uncle dude whats his name? Ichi something? he may have even noticed her fascination for Bakas Yummy Daddy.

Just like Reika was aware of where Enjou and Kaburagi spent their summer vacation (mediteranean sea) in year 1 of elementary school by her followers. It could’ve been really creepy if Enjou or Kaburagi was the MC and Reika said that she knew. And we dunno if Enjou is talking about Ichinokura or Imari or Tomoe-senpai,

    1. A bit of column A and a bit of column B.
      It is quite a familiar emotion for boys, I think, that there is not only a pretty girl that catches your attention, but you suffer under the perception that she is far beyond your league. Worse still, as far as anybody in high society is concerned, Reika *is* out of your league. You filthy unwashed peasant.

      And watcha going to do about it? You live by the same rules and have internalized them your whole life. So yes, far much saner and politic to keep your tucked down.

      1. I think I can see why. She’s repulsed by Kaburagi because she doesn’t see him as being all that mature. And she was formerly a ~20 year old woman trapped with bratty grade schoolers. Small surprise that she swoons for mature older men.

        I’m remembering a certain chapter where they’re at a really upscale traditional Japanese dinner on a field trip and the other girls are leaving their seats and being rowdy — big breach of etiquette. You sometimes forget that Reika must’ve looked really mature and put-together when growing up.

        Liked by 4 people

        1. I think it’s not just how old she was. It seems like Reika was into older guys even in her younger years in her previous life just by going off by the fact her first crush was her older cousin. I’m just going to insert my experience here and mesh it with my theory, but since in her previous life she’s been teased/bullied a little by the boys in her age group, compared to immature, mean kids vs older/kinder/calmer guys, I would (rather I prefer) pick the latter. So I’d think that older men has always been more to her taste.

          Sometimes I forget that in her previous life she was about 20~ish but that example you made bout the whole etiquette thing as well as her disapproving thoughts on the girls who left their seats is actually a good example. I recall someone criticising on how despite being a former 20 ish year old Reika wasn’t mature/acting how old she was etc but I think moments like that show the subtlety of her age. Her general calmness too. Thinking about this makes me applaud the author even more for making such a fleshed, well-rounded character.

    As for the actual chapter, man does Enjou sound defensive lol. He noticed that Reika didn’t believe him about not sticking to Kaburagi in the morning, so he deflected with the rejected woman comment. And over Yukino, he deflected with the brocon/fathercon stuff. Seems like he’s the one who noticed her first love was Tomoe-senpai, not Kaburagi (although she didn’t really hide it well, we only know of Chairman as the only other person who knew about it), and he alluded to Ichinokura, her potential second love. It looks like he’s pretty conscious of Reika’s love life, and that last comment from him comes across as a little bitter lol.

    2. There is a lot of little things that hint he’s a major love interest down the line. I suppose it’s possible the author could throw in a twist, but I put long odds on that.

      The most important bit is that Enjou is actually her type. She’s admitted to liking his face over Kaburagi’s if it’s just about the looks. She’s also basically described liking kind types who can get her excited. She says she doesn’t like Maiden-kun because while he’s a nice guy, he isn’t a bad boy or adventurous enough for her.

      Reika’s interactions with Takateru actually mirrors her relationship with Enjou pretty closely for this reason. Enjou and Takateru like being able to see through Reika’s mask to the stupidity underneath and using it to bait, tease and prank her. If Reika is a cat, then they’re the guys that like dangling a bit of string at her or having her chase the laser pointer.

      Secondly, Enjou is the only other boy besides maybe Ichinokura to take a personal interest in her. And he’s the only other apparent real contender for her affections. Besides Maiden-kun, these two boys are the only ones who know about the real Reika.

  18. I’ve mixed feelings with Enjou. I actually like that he understands Reika’s true self better than everyone else at school, though he still doesn’t know enough. At the same time, since he understands she wants nothing to do with him or Kaburagi, I wonder why he insists in getting involved with her.

    I will be so angry at him if he wants to use her… I’ll be even angrier if it turns out he wants her to end up with Kaburagi. Those two are so dense, they really aren’t compatible. As long as it isn’t the case, then I’m happy.

  19. My question is, if Enjou is so caught up with what’s going on with Reika. Does that mean he knows what happened at the Pivoine and will he intervene if there are misunderstandings about her bullying go out of control? Because that is how will know if he is interested/a nice enough guy or if his interest only goes as far as using her.

      Birdbrain is one of the vectors of her reputation. While Enjou probably doesn’t have that much influence over Fellow Stalking Horse, he could probably reign in the rumors or talk with the Monk in a public place to help spread the word about Reika’s inoffensive nature.

      We must all follow Reika’s instinct and think about what I’m going to be saying carefully…Enjou did things by reasons.

      Why did he conveniently walk down with Reika and pass along his classroom (which has Wakaba in it)? I mean, right after the Pivoines request?

      (Possible correct answer: he helps indirectly showing proof of Reika ‘doing her job’ to regulate the students)

    shouldn’t it be “you and Kaburagi-sama”?

  22. Me: *seesthefanart* O///O kawaii ❤️ *savesfanart*

    Encouragement words from Bea-tan isn’t that nice? Lol. Anyways that external from the cram school…sigh, why do I get the feeling that sooner or later even the matter with Reika-sama joining a cram school will be known by Enjou and Kaburagi? I mean, Enjou must have some crazy intelligence unit, that goes nin-nin that’s why he knows about Mao’s loli loving uncle and Reika-sama’s food tours (or it’s just that Mao babbles about it to Enjou’s otouto and that’s how it reaches the haraguro Enjou.😂😂)

    Thaaaaaaaaank you sooooop much for the updaaaaate😊

  24. My one of favorite chapters~~
    The subtle attack of Enjou about her preference to older boys. Oh…are you sad that your chance with Reika is really low because of your age, Enjou?
    *run away from the devil.

    Oh you chose Marudori’s picture. She/he is my favorite especially with Reika’s story pics

  25. Im gonna have to make up my own Enjou PoV coz I dont think there will ever be one!

    Yukino came home in high spirits, running up to his Onii sama presenting his latest project, Enjou smiled at his little brother who seemed to be happier lately, he wondered if he got a new friend, he hoped so.
    “Well what is it?” Yukino gave him an excited grin pulling out books till he found his treasured possession,
    “A rabbit?” Yukino nodded, “Reika Onee sama taught me how to do this” beamed Yukino proudly, “She said I was very good at this too!”
    Enjous eyes widened, Reika can do handicrafts? a baffled smile appeared. Patting Yukinos head praising his hard work.
    “So does Reika Onee sama come often to visit?”
    Yukino nods, as he looked at the rabbit happily, look here little brother thought Enjou, focus on the question.
    “To speak to you?” Yukino shook his head.
    “She comes to see Mao chan, they are very close!” Enjou patted Yukinos head.
    “So how did you both meet?”
    “She came to visit Mao chan, and then, I got her something to drink and she thought I was a good boy!” his cheeks flushed, he seemed quite pleased.
    “Yes, she gets on really well with all the other kids! shes really nice!, and Mao Chans Uncle really likes her too!”
    “Mao chans … Uncle?” Enjous eyes narrowed, Yukino nodded.
    “They even go out together, sometimes with Mao chan other times just the two of them, Mao chan always shows off about Reika Onee sama” Yukino pouted, hmm does he want a closer relationship with Reika?
    So she likes older guys huh, maybe Ill find out a little bit of information about this “Uncle”

    1. Ooo! Ooo! Let me try!
      I did cheat a bit and use the dialogue out of the second half of the chapter though.

      ===
      Chapter 120
      Enjou’s POV

      I stepped out of the car into the driveway just in time to hear another car pull up behind ours. I could see its passenger emerge into the sunlight. You couldn’t mistake that curled hair for anybody else’s.

      It goes without saying that Pivoine members are never more punctual than they want to be. Yep, it’s human nature to want to sleep in. Although it would be beneath their dignity as the elite of the elite to ever admit it.

      That said, Reika-san is one of the diligent ones. When I still shared a class with her in middle school, she’d always come earlier than me to class and you could find her sitting quietly or reviewing her notes. She must really be running late today.

      “Morning, Kisshouin-san.”

      Reika notices me and immediately stiffens like a deer caught in headlights. She forces her smile wide until her dimples show.

      “Good morning, Enjou-sama.”

      She looks like she wants to run, but I’m not letting this rare chance pass. I can’t just casually approach any of the girls. And Reika herself is usually surrounded by her friends. The commotion would just be too big.

      As it was, we were drawing a lot of attention on the way to classes. She glances at some of the onlooking girls and boys. Then turns a resentful glare on me.

      “What’s wrong, Kisshouin-san?”

      “Nothing.”

      “I see.”

      I smile and some nearby girls squeal. People usually forgive me if I just smile but Reika isn’t impressed.

      “Are you not with Kaburagi-sama on this morning?”

      “Well it’s not like we go to school together.”

      The resentful glare turns into a disbelieving look. This girl. She’s definitely thinking of something weird again.

      “Wait, don’t tell me you think that each morning we happily ride the same car here? Wouldn’t that be pretty creepy for two high school boys? We go to school at the same time, so I guess we bump into each other a lot.”

      “My, is that how it was?”

      She still looks as if she doesn’t believe me.

      “Speaking of which, there actually was a period when I went to pick him up. I couldn’t really take my eyes off him at the time. I still have to thank you for your help back then.”

      Well, I really do owe her. Masaya can be a handful sometimes. Despite how he looks, he’s like a sensitive maiden.

      “It was thanks to you risking life and limb that we somehow got Masaya to cheer up. Thanks again.”

      “You are welcome…”

      Reika responds hesistantly. Her eyes begin to turn resentful again.

      “And it looks like my brother has been in your care too. The other day he brought home this toy that he said you taught him to make.”

      Reika’s eyes light up, like the sun coming out from behind a cloud.

      “Oh, the snow rabbit!”

      “So it’s called needle felting. I had no idea you had that kind of hobby. My brother was quite happy about it.”

      “I see. Then it makes me happy that he enjoyed it.”

      A silly and contented expression fills Reika’s face. Mmm. I know how you feel. My baby brother is quite cute isn’t he? He wouldn’t stop talking about the graceful and perfect onee-sama. You would think he was talking about some other girl.

      “It seems that the snow rabbit had special importance to him. He told me about how you and Kaburagi-sama built snowmen for him. You really spoil him, Enjou-sama.”

      Well that really does bring me back.

      “Well, we’ve got quite an age difference after all. And he hasn’t got the best constitution either. Doesn’t your own brother spoil you quite a bit too? Why according to the rumours, you’re practically a brocon, Kisshouin-san. Although lately it’s been leaning towards fathercon instead.”

      Reika looks surprised for a moment but forces on a polite smile once more.

      “It is certainly true that my brother and I have always been close, but I have not the faintest idea how the accusations of being a fathercon came about.”

      “Ohh? I see.”

      Well somebody as famous as Reika always had a few strange rumors floating about. And given her behavior, you could never be sure. If you watched her from a distance and she was just sitting around or talking to friends, then Reika looked like the perfectly composed ojousama. That impression didn’t last long under fire though.

      We approached my classroom.

      “Oh, by the way.”

      Speaking of strange rumors.

      “Is it because you love your much older brother so much that your taste is also for older men?”

      “Eh?”

      Reika’s eyes are wide with shock and confusion. I turn and enter the classroom.
      Oh crap. I can’t stop grinning. Provoking her reactions is too much fun.

  26. Y’know, it’s not all that unusual if Reika favors older men. I mean, as a reincarnater since birth, she’s mentally twice her physical age. Too bad she hadn’t matured at all.

  27. At this point I’m not sure if Reika (a) doesn’t realize that everyone in the school knows her, (b) is pretending to them or (c) is pretending to HERSELF.

    It’s always funny that the girls go “kya kya” whenever she seems to get along with Kaburagi and Enjou. On the other hand, one of them glances Wakaba’s way and everyone hates her.

    Reika likes mature men that treat her like a delicate princess. She doesn’t like boys that make fun of her or are scared of her. In fact, considering how often she brings it up she must really hate boys being afraid of her.

    So is Nonose or Miharu that thinks Class Rep should get with Reika? Probably Miharu since that is the cruelest option…

  28. I’ve noticed something quite peculiar 🤔 How Reika-sama calls Enjou, “Enjou-‘sama’,” but he just use ‘-san’? Isn’t that disrespectful?
    Anyways, why he so nosey? Reika has good taste in men, you simply don’t fit the bill. My condolences, but why you in her biz?
    He so disrespectful.

    1. The honorific “-san” is perfectly polite though. If anything, “-sama” is a bit over the top (especially for environments that are not as prissy as Suiran) – that’s why Reika prefers her friends call her “-chan.” Kaburagi, on the other hand, doesn’t use honorifics at all (towards people of the same age)…then again, neither does Fellow Stalking Horse. I guess rather than rude, in context it’s just more ‘casual’? They are teenage boys, after all – got a ‘tough’ image to maintain.

      1. I think it’s just mostly that Reika errs on the side of being overly formal and respectful because she doesn’t want to get close to the Kimidol male protags. Enjou treats her more informally because he thinks of her as more like a classmate or an equal, not somebody he has to drive wide around out of fear that she’ll smite him.

        1. Yes, I agree that Reika is definitely just going along with the majority (maybe girls are more likely to use “-sama” in Suiran? I haven’t noticed any boy calling Kaburagi and Enjou with “-sama”) – after all she doesn’t even think of them with ANY honorifics, lol.

          I wonder if they will ever be on first name basis?

        2. Ah, just as a clarification – my theory about the ‘tough’ image was exclusively for Kaburagi and Fellow Stalking Horse. As mentioned,”-san” is perfectly polite, but no honorifics in some circumstances can be interpreted as rude.

  29. Tagaki! Ok, finally I know the proper romanization. *shakes fist at google translate*

    Uuuu…Reika’s reputation among the boys is so pitiful…Serika-san and Kikuno-san, you carried out your jobs as bodyguards a little too well.

    Jealous much, Enjou? I get you might have just heard stuff from the rumor mill (like how Reika knows about you and Kaburagi) so you’re *not* necessarily a stalker…but…that comment is just shady as hell.
    Could it be that you just like messing with Reika that much? You will not escape the wrath of Kali if that’s really the case.

  30. The return of Dog-lover-kun. To be honest, I’m a dog lover myself and that email from Bea-tan was just too cute~
    (^///^)~♡ Dog-lover-kun, even if you are somewhat annoying at times, you’ve redeemed yourself a little in my books. You are now at the level of LARVA.

    (shipping glasses-ON) Is Enjou perhaps another reason all of the boys seem to be averting their eyes from Reika? And dare I detect a hint of jealousy in that gibe about older men? (⊙.⊙) But what’s with that “much older brother” phrasing? Oniisama isn’t THAT much older :p

    Thanks so much for the newest translation! Hope your summer (maybe?) is well! XDXDXD

      1. actually in older times and society (maybe 30-100 years ago) 7 years isn’t considering too much an age gap. many of them have around 10’s or more years of age difference when they married. what I would consider surprising was if they have around 50’s years of gap. but what would you say about the power of love.. I myself have no comment☺

    1. I think it’s more because everyone assumes she’s kaburagi’s and he has a vicious jealous streak when a male so much as talks to a person he’s interested in. You’d need to be able to fight back against one of the most powerful families in Japan to survive talking to her from that pov.

  31. Okay, I don’t get it. I looked up needle-felting and somehow, it’s just this incredibly feminine hobby. I don’t get why this is so out-of-line with Reika being an ojousama. If anything, it just seems to add to her wubbly soft Reikaness.

    1. I also looked it up. Maybe it’s because needle felting involves poking the needle around some surface? it’s not a graceful act when you trying to thrust a needle to some wools in a surface (they even called it agitating the wools) while being careful to not get hurt.. though I would admit imagining Reika doing it with various expression would be considered cute😄
