Reika-sama – 130

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!

Woke up a bit early to do this so likely to have mistakes though, so if you see one please comment. Actually, please check the comments before you comment. No matter how many times you guys notify me, I can only fix the chapter once after all.


──It appears that for a moment I may have lost myself…
How scary. I hope that was not possession.
Thank goodness I regained my sanity before delving into the world of onmyou and dark magic.

Now then. If I wanted to look reality in the eyes, then I needed a suitable advisor.
When I left the room for some reason Otousama was standing silently right outside my door. Scary! What was he trying to accomplish by standing outside his daughter’s room like this.

“Did you need something, Otousama?”

“…Reika-chan, did something happen? You can talk to Otousama about it. Otousama would do anything for you, you know? Come! Voice your worries to me!”

“Hah?”

What was all this, all of a sudden? Was he in shock because I rejected those cakes?
I didn’t quite understand but right now I was busy, so sorry, but I rejected him and headed for the living room. The tanuki called “Reika~ Reika~” from behind me. Ugh, that was actually really scary… Wasn’t Otousama the one with worries here?

Okaasama was drinking tea in the living room.

“Reika-san, please be quiet indoors. I heard something like a wild animal.”

“Ah, my apologies.”

So they heard the scream of my soul.

Is that why Otousama was trying to peep on me? In that case sorry. Don’t worry. I just accidentally tapped into my demonic side for a bit.

I sat down besides Okaasama.

“Say, Okaasama. Have I gotten fatter?”

Having thought about it for a while, I realised the only person I could ask in this household was Okaasama. Otousama was sweet on me and he was tubby himself, so no way would he call me fat. Oniisama on the other hand was a gentleman, so he definitely wouldn’t be clear with me either. In the end I could only ask a fellow woman like Okaasama if I wanted it to be given to me straight.

When Okaasama heard my words, her eyes widened. Then after a moment, she nodded quietly. I knew it!

“So you’ve noticed as well, Reika-san…”

“Okaasama! Why did you not tell me earlier!”

Isn’t a parent supposed to be strict sometimes for their children’s sake!?

“I’m sorry. Okaasama just couldn’t say it…”

“Okaasama…”

I suppose as the mother to a girl at a delicate age, there were just some things hard to say.

“When did you notice, Okaasama?”

“Let’s see. I suppose for one or two months now…”

“I see…”

The other day we went to a hotel lunch buffet at Mao-chan’s request too. I shouldn’t have done something stupid like trying to conquer all of the desserts…

“But you know, Reika-san, I have some terrific news for you!”

Suddenly Okaasama looked really happy as she handed me an envelope.

I looked inside and there was a pamphlet for a detox course, run by the Kaburagi Group’s hotel.

“This is…”

“Remember that fasting course we went on last year? They invited us this year too. But it’s a detox instead this time. Apparently we’ll go to health salons, eat macrobiotic foods, and exercise. So, Reika-san, come with Okaasama?”

“Okaasama…”

…Okaasama, this was premeditated wasn’t it?
While I was getting fat, the reason you didn’t say anything was because you wanted me to go on this course with you, wasn’t it? It’s because you didn’t want to go by yourself, Okaasama!
You fiend! There was a real fiend in this room!

“To be blunt, I do not think I could burn off my fat with such a mild course.”

I was annoyed at Okaasama, so I refused. For her own purposes, she sat by and watched her daughter grow fat.
Okaasama begged me in panic.

“Reika-san! Please, come with me? If you hadn’t been there last year Okaasama wouldn’t have been able to bear it. Please? Please, Reika-san!”

“No.”

I turned my head away.

“Mrs. Kaburagi said she wanted you to come too. She told me during that last party. You’ll come, won’t you, Reika-san?”

“Ehhh~”

Now that she had brought up Kaburagi’s mum there was even more reason to refuse. Okaasama started pointing out stuff in the brochures like ‘developing a body that gains less fat’ and ‘natural-style cooking’ and stuff but I was having none of it.
Irritated by my complete refusal, Okaasama changed her tune.

“Then are you saying you want to be this fat forever, Reika-san! It’s summer! The season where you wear less clothing! Are you going to pass summer with that thick waist of yours!”

“Oww! Okaasama, that hurts!”

Okaasama was pulling at my midsection with both hands. Oww!

“You must come, Reika-san! I won’t accept a refusal!”

She was getting angry at me now!? The victim!? People often said that guilty people would try to hide their sins with anger. Okaasama was the very picture of that.

Having lost to her intensity, I trudged back to my room. I didn’t wanna go…

The spirit of my hatred was still lying around in my room, so I gave it a small pyre as a funeral.

*

On Monday morning I was putting my shoes away at school when Ririna came up to me and pointed right at my face.

“Reika-san, you’ve gotten fat!”

A moment later, Minami-kun and companions had taken her away. That idiot came up to me first thing in the morning to say that?

Should I punch her…?

*

The summer holiday was coming soon, so Class Rep and I were collecting the printouts for that. When we headed to the Student Council room, Fellow Stalking Horse was there.

Come to think of it, the summer break would be when the Student Council members passed their roles over, wouldn’t it. I guess that made Fellow Stalking Horse the next President after all.

“Kisshouin-san, could you take this half?”

“Okaaay.”

He may have said ‘half’, but the ratio was actually 3 to 2 his way. He might have been a maiden at heart, but that didn’t mean he wasn’t also a gentleman.
After we made sure we had them all, the two of us were about to leave when Stalking Horse called out to stop me.

“Did you need something?” I asked.

“…I’m sorry for the bias I showed you back then.”

“Pardon?”

What was this?

“Tomoe-senpai also told me off for having preconceived notions of you.”

“Eh-, Tomoe-senpai did!?”

What’s this? What’s this about Tomoe-senpai now!? I want to hear it! Tell me about Tomoe-senpai!

“The other day I met with him, and you came up in conversation. That was when he scolded me…”

Ehhh~!? Stalking Horse met with Tomoe-senpai!? Sneaky! I wanted to meet him too!

“If you have any complaints about what I’ve done, I’m willing to hear them.”

“I have no complaints against you in particular, Mizusaki-kun.”

Mm. I just wanted to know how Tomoe-senpai was doing. I have nothing to say to you, Comrade. I suppose if I really had to say something, I’d be telling you to actually do your job as the village vice-chief. Don’t think you can graduate from this village before I do!

Obviously I couldn’t actually say this, so I left the room even as he looked dissatisfied.

“Kisshouin-san, did something happen between you two?”

“Who knows. I cannot say I quite understand it myself… Nothing bad happened though, so pay no mind.”

“That makes sense.”

After that he talked about his love life until we reached the classroom.

“Apparently Honda-san is going to be doing the summer vacation remedials, so I’m thinking about doing them too.”

I was listening to him talk when a while later Iwamuro-kun came down in the other direction.

“Master! Let me carry those!”

And so even though we were in different classes, he ended up carrying them for me.

“Also, I have something I want your advice on, Master…”

Advice for Iwamuro-kun… I bet it was about avoiding tanning for the summer.

In the hallway with our classrooms I saw Miharu-chan and Nonose-san talking merrily to each other. When Class Rep saw them, he turned into a maiden.

I think the two of them liked the fantasy genre. I overheard them speaking about it a lot. By “mercenary” did that mean they were reading a war novel at the moment?

        1. I know a certain . . . woman. Highly placed in Japanese society.
          This woman, she has friends. Connections one might say. She once flew to Taiwan for some meat buns.
          Just saying. We can take care of your meat bun problem.

  2. Haha oh Ririna… She truly is a caring cousin, although misguided…
    On another note, so Iwamuro is the mercenary baha! The imagination of these girls are no joke!

    1. According to the Refined Ladies of Suiran(tm):

      Baka-poleon: The Emperor, wooing Reika apparently
      Enjou: Prince, in a love triangle with his best friend, c’est tragique
      Maiden Class Rep: The Chamberlain (primarily cheered on by his crush, LOL)
      Judo Maiden: Mercenary, Beauty and the Beast, The Empress’ Toy (look how he meekly lets her dress him up! How loyal!)

      My additions:

      Enjou’s little bro: Impish Angel
      Tomoe-senpai: Romeo (Reika said it, not me)
      Fellow Stalking Horse: Romeo replacement candidate
      Cute Club Kouhai: Shop Boy, Devoted Citizen
      Bea-tan’s BFF: Royal Supplier of Dog Pictures
      Ichinokura: Traitor. Liar
      Tanuki: Tanuki!!!
      Imari-sama: Caring big brother’s friend (don’t let oniisama hears about the “crush”)
      Onii-sama: True Love

      Akizawa-kun is off-limits. Scary devil in the picture.

      This is just the maidens and the males, or otherwise I would put my support behind Wakaba route for The Princess and the Pauper, Lily Edition.

    2. From what I understand Iwamuro is the mercenary, and Class Rep is the chamberlain.
      Iwamuro is the cross dresser from the judo club, I imagine him as Takeo from “ore monogatari!!”.

      Liked by 2 people

      1. I don’t think Iwamuro would look like Takeo, since Reika has never really described his face, however, when he put on the Cinderella costume for the athletic festival thing, people said it was good, and even Reika thought he is cute. Thus, I think Iwamuro may look like Nozaki Umetaro of Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, he has an ordinary face and a huge body. Moreover, if Iwamuro is really look like Takeo, I don’t think Reika’s companions would allow such rumors about mercenary to survive lol

  3. Ahaha. Reika-sama’s mom is quite evil herself! 😂 So it’s a detox course this time? Pfft.

    Girls and their imagination, I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s some underground site with their fantasies about Reika-samaXthe chamberlain, Reika-samaXthe prince, The EmpressxEmperor…with titles like “the servant and his HIgness” or “Spring Rain” or “His Treasured Empress” 😂

    Heck, girls in RL might be worst off with their imaginations, y’know😏

    Btw, Give Este a break, you guys!! Nobody’s perfect. At least those are some minor mistakes. (I’ve been reading various novels and the TL for Reika-sama is one of those few that puts pictures in it, in order to show what or how it looks like and it’s amazing how there’s always an explanation about some words or Japanese saying)

    What will you guys do if we all went back to the era of no updates? Kuuuh. Just remembering about it makes me shiver in fear. 😌 THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE UPDATE😊

    1. can’t blame suiran girls. Nobody can compare to Reika in popularity, other pivoines girls are all weirdos book otakus/occultists or just don’t stand out and other normal girls are either too ordinary/her followers/small fries that get crushed by Reika when going up against her.
      So basically Reika is best girl and still hasn’t decided on a guy. Like people arguing which of Sakura x Shirou or Saber x Shirou or Rin x Shirou is best couple (fate stay/night)

      1. And as Carnival Phantasm showed, no matter what one chose it will end bad.

    2. Don’t remind me….

      Actually it was not as bad as The Great Drought of Kumo Desu that went months. Almost a year actually. And Hidan no Aria was even longer, about 2 to 3 years until I found the spanish translation. AND THEN, there is currently a 1.5 years long drought with that one two.

  6. Black…too black, Okaasama! How could you sacrifice your daughter like that???

    Your intentions were good but too late Ririna. …is it just me or is Reika getting more comfortable with violence lately?

    Yes! Fellow Stalking Horse finally see the light! Good job Tomoe-senpai! Why was he unsatisfied though? Did he really want to get scolded? Well anyway, please get along with Reika from now on.

    1. Well, is more like the stress is getting to her already, like when she punched Enjou.

      Maybe Stalking Horse is dissatisfied with himself for putting all the Pivoine in the same category as they do with the Externals? Anyway, I am still waiting for his POV chapter, that will be entertaining.

  7. “…Okaasama, this was premeditated wasn’t it?
    While I was getting fat, the reason you didn’t say anything was because you wanted me to go on this course with you, wasn’t it? It’s because you didn’t want to go by yourself, Okaasama!
    You fiend! There was a real fiend in this room!”

  8. Thank you! You’re the BEST XDXD

    So Reika will have to face her demons soon. Will she go to the retreat or will there be an alternate route for her? Oh well, at least she’ll have some amusement with the two secret maiden followers. ^^

  9. Recently, I’ve come by the image that Mama and Papa Kisshouin are a nauseatingly sweet couple who call each other pet names and make overt and silly displays of affection to each other. Mama behaves a bit pouty and spoiled while Dad is all nice and sweet to her.

    Mostly because it’d be funny if it were true.

    Liked by 1 person

    1. I dunno about that. Tanuki wasn’t sweet to Reika at all and only asked her things like how much she got along with Kaburagi. It’s just that he got excessively bullied by Reika later (heavens know, you know and I know) while she was basically fawning over her Onii-sama without that one doing anything. Got jealous.

  10. So Iwamuro-chan was labeled as the “mercenary”? Let’s wait for kouhai-chan, another maiden guy, of crafting club to get a nickname aside from ShopBoy.

  11. Even if Ririna said it earlier Reika would have still been annoyed and would have still ignored her.

    How funny, the Stalking House thought she had a bad opinion of him because he was hostile. Normally she would but since he considers him her “stalking horse companion” she never held it against him.

  12. Does anybody else see if there’s a next chapter before even reading the chapter so you don’t get disappointed after reading the current chapter? Anyways, thx for updating this like everyday! 💕 I’ll be waiting for a chapter tomorrow…hopefully…

  13. If Reika-sama doesn’t really want to go through that detox course, maybe she should have a go again with her own spoilt bento detox course… if she gets the stomach flu again, maybe she would lose weight… or maybe not… Reika-sama might have already built resistance to stomach flu…
