Reika-sama – 143

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!

Hi guys! Looking for experienced cleaners or type-setters to help with the Tashinami scanlations.


It’s basically always the cradle or the grave for our dear heroine.


The two of us drew circles to the music. Despite the height difference, Yukino-kun was doing his best to lead. And he was only six! What an amazing boy!

“You dance well, Yukino-kun.”

“Really? It’s not hard to dance because I’m too short?”

“Why, not at all. I happen to be enjoying myself immensely, thanks to your leading.”

“Ehehe. I’m having a lot of fun too.”

Soooo cuuuuute! Dancing with an adorable little angel like this? I’m so happy!

We were moving through the hall, step after step, when I made eye contact with Mao-chan whose eyes were glittering. Then Enjou who was still dancing with Aira-sama. He looked taken aback. I was probably going to hear complaints about this later, but…

“I hope I’ll grow taller soon. I wonder if I’m this short because I hate milk.”

Yukino-kun was actually so cute that all thoughts of Enjou disappeared for the moment. To think that he was worrying about his height. He really was a boy. It wasn’t something to concern himself over at all. He was still in 1st grade so there was a lot of growing left to do. Actually, I kind of wished he’d stay cute like this forever.

His hair glowed amber in the light as I continued to follow his lead in circles around the hall.

After that one song we left the dance floor, since I had to think about his body as well.

Cheeks slightly flushed, Yukino-kun drank plum juice, while I helped myself to a non-alcoholic margarita. Yummy!

“Are you all right, Yukino-kun? Are you tired?”

“I’m fine. How about you, Reika-oneesan?”

“I still feel fantastic.”

Maybe the jogging I did over the summer was why my stamina seemed better than before. The day after tomorrow I was headed to the Imperial Palace with Mihara-san as the culmination of my summer training. I wonder if I would be okay. It was five kilometres after all. I could already see all of the real joggers looking at me like I was completely out of place.

“You know, Yukino-kun, for a 1st grader you are very good with the waltz. Did you practice a lot?”

“That’s not true. Compared to Niisama I’m not much.”

Yukino-kun watched his brother again.

“I think you were plenty skilled.”

Actually, if Yukino-kun had danced as flawlessly as Enjou, it might have been a little creepy even.

“Have you finished your summer homework?” I asked him.

“Yes. I finished most of it in July, so when I was done I stayed at a cool villa for a while.”

“Goodness, is that so! What a good boy you are!”

“It was too hot for me to go outside so I didn’t have anything else to do. Niisama helped me with the parts I couldn’t do.”

“Enjou-sama did?”

I’d been thinking this for a while now but Enjou sure was sweet on his brother.

“Yes. Although Niisama was too busy to really be around much… Oh, Niisama is coming over.”

Having finished dancing, the four of them headed our way, still the centre of attention.

“Niisama!”

“Yukino.”

With one hand Enjou signalled a waiter for a drink, while he plopped the other down on Yukino-kun’s head.

“Yukino, you haven’t been causing trouble for Kisshouin-san have you?”

“Of course not,” he sulked in offence.

Ohhh! It was rare seeing this expression on Yukino-kun. I guess he was more comfortable acting childishly when it was his older brother.

Aira-sama greeted me with a smile.

“Long time no see, Reika-chan.”

“It has been a while, Aira-sama.”

And it really had. The last time I met her face-to-face was actually during that incident with Kaburagi, right? Not that we hadn’t sent each other the occasional email.

“It’s been a while, Reika-san. Do you remember me?”

“Of course I do, Yurie-sama.”

Was there anybody who could forget as wonderful a person as her? Yurie-sama laughed gently at me.

“Yukino! How you been!” said Kaburagi before ruffling Yukino-kun’s hair.

Yukino-kun tried to swat his hands away, but his hair was already a mess, and Kaburagi was having fun holding on.

Stop it! Don’t be so rough with him, you fool! You’re going to snap his poor little neck!

Before I could stop him, Aira-sama and Yurie-sama delivered Yukino-kun from evil, and the two of them tidied his hair again.

“What are you doing, Masaya!” scolded Yurie-sama.

Whoo!

“Kisshouin-san, thank you for looking after my brother.”

“You mean the dance? In that case it was very much the other way around. I owe him my thanks for being considerate of a wall-flower like me.”

Whether it was Yuuri-kun or Yukino-kun, the Petite Pivoine was just filled with gentleman. Honestly, I was envious.

See? Off in the distance some primary school girls were sneaking glances our way. Apparently Yukino-kun was already incredibly popular in the primary section. I felt a little bad now for monopolising him.

Mao-chan and Yuuri-kun came over to greet Yukino-kun at those girls’ request.

“Yukino-kun? Say, how about you come talk with everybody at the Petite?”

“Okay. Niisama, I’m going.”

Yukino-kun waved goodbye and headed for his own friends.

“Had you planned on coming to this party, Aira-sama, Yurie-sama?”

I hadn’t heard a thing about that, you know.

“Youko-san invited us quite passionately, but I was still on the fence about it,” explained Yurie-sama before giving a happy smile, “But then Masaya invited me to come with him, so…”

Kaburagi invited her!? And Yurie-sama agreed… Don’t tell me his romance really bore fruit!?

Enjou gave me a helpless smile.

“I think you’re misunderstanding, Kisshouin-san.”

“Eh?”

“There’s nothing going on between Yurie and I,” said Kaburagi.

“Eh?”

This time the four of them smiled at me.

“Masaya came over, you see, and told me that he had come to terms with things. He apologised for everything, and thanked me for waiting all that time.”

Yurie-sama’s eyes seemed a little wet.

“It was my fault for not being clear with him. Because of that I hurt him so much. When I heard that he had gone to Toujinbou, and then again when he went to the Sea of Trees, each time it felt like I was being gutted. I wasn’t sure I was alive…”

Her hands began to tremble, like she was recalling those very moments. Kaburagi’s one man heartbreak journey had caused a lot of shock for those involved, hadn’t it. You know, the destinations being what they were.

“Even when I heard that Masaya was getting a little better, I hadn’t thought I’d ever be able to face him again. I didn’t think he could forgive me. But then… Masaya came to visit me the other day…”

This time Yurie-sama had finally broken into real tears. Kaburagi looked apologetic, and handed her a handkerchief. She must have really suffered… Yurie-sama had always thought of him as her adorable younger brother after all.

This time it was Kaburagi’s turn to talk.

“It wasn’t like I didn’t know how she felt. But fourteen years of those feelings weren’t so easy to deal with… I’m sorry, Yurie.”

She shook her head to let him know it was fine.

“But I finally got over it,” he continued, “I might not love you in that way anymore, but you’ll always be special to me. That’s why if you ever need me, I’ll always come to help. No matter where you are, Yurie.”

Ah! That was the line from Kimidol.

I see. This meant he really had gotten over her then. It might have been annoying with the poem anthology and all that, but seeing all of them smile made me feel happy for them.

“Reika-san, I heard from Aira that we caused you quite a bit of trouble. Sorry. But thank you as well.”

“Oh gosh, no, I did really nothing at all.”

“Yeah,” commented Kaburagi, “The two of us just shared the pain of heartbreak.”

Oii! What the hell are you saying!

“Eh-, your heart was broken too, Reika-chan? By who!?”

“Goodness, Reika-san. It must have been rough.”

Stop! Please! Stop looking at me with pity like that! Stop asking who did it! Kaburagi, stop nodding knowingly like that, damnit!

And now Enjou was sniggering in the background, damnit! Ahhh, geez! Come back, Yukino-kun! I need your soothing angel blessings!

*

And so the summer break ended, and what I had to show for it were memories of finishing the Imperial Palace run, half-dead.

Today I would enter 2nd Year.

──And then that morning of the opening ceremony, an incident rocked the school.

Kaburagi and Wakaba-chan arrived at school together, chatting happily all the while.

“Reika-sama, what on earth is that supposed to be!?”

“Reika-sama! Why is Kaburagi-sama with Takamichi-san!?”

With Serika-chan shaking my left arm, and Kikuno-chan shaking my right, I was rocked too, physically.

I! Don’t! Knoooooow!

      1. Fortunately it’s not a game but a shoujo manga. No need to worry about multiple routes there.

        At best there’s probably a couple stalking horse lol.

        Aww Reika-sama… what would you do if you became Yukino’s Yurie ? geez that scheming snickering devil of a brother of his would probably have the time if his life then

        1. Ah, I’ve been thinking the same thing too. It would be really sad if Yukino went to heartbroken jurney because Reika like Kaburagi did. Then again Kaburagi doesn’t have older brother, so there’s a possibility Yukino will try pair Reika with Shuusuke to make her become his real onesama when his heart did break.

          1. Exactly! He doesn’t seem the type to ever receive the title of “Baka.” And forget age. He seems more emotionally mature than how Bakaburagi is now.

            But I will concede that the emperor may have grown enough to realize his nudity and don on some real clothes…maybe… we’ll see how this kimidoll route progresses. ;p

  1. Whoa. That last bit was surprising. I mean…wakaba? Uh? Dear? you did read the Manual blessed to you by Reika-sama right? Whatcha doing is gonna attract the beasts!! Run for your dear life.!! Did the kimidol Bakaburagi and wakaba plot happened without even anyone noticing? Until this huge, “walk to school together” event happened? 😲

    And somehow I find it absolutely funny how it was always Enjou who seems to see or notice Reika-sama’s dilemma or displeasure of things.

    1. I kind of got the impression that Reika is actually fairly easy to read… as long as you don’t have preconceived notions about her, or let her apparently noble facade fool you. So actually not easy to read at all, I guess… unless you already know her true nature. Enjou does. 😉

      1. not really, Reika can guess what Enjou/Kaburagi are thinking in lot of occasions, although not all, but it’s not like Enjou have guessed what she thought every single time, and really, looking at Reika looking surprised at Yurie x Kaburagi, it’s not hard to guess what she could be thinking.

      1. Yeah I really love that part and I always re-read it. I love how haraguro Enjou might be thinking that ‘ah since it’s Kishouin-san she’s just like the rest and would definitely not do it’ but a straight or maybe a hook to solar plexus woke him up.

  2. Oh, so they plot is now on the move, who’s doing the villainess role now? Reika samaaaa what will you do, it’a going to be busy for a while now huh! Do your best Reika samaaa.

    Like

    1. I think the villainess role could be literally any internal student in the school. Just look at how Reika’s clode friends were freaking out, i’m sure many other girls are just like that (if not more). Plus you’ve got the Pivione President and those girls who were tripping Wakaba in the halls. (I can’t rememeber who they were) but yeah. There is probably a bunch of stuff that Reika doesn’t see behind the scenes.

  3. Could Reika be escaping the clutches of the plot? Is there a post Kimidol phase to this story? Could Reika’s new role be Masaya’s love guru? The Pivione President could take Reika’s place as the anti-Wakaba ring leader while Maihama is the half assed rival.

  4. Kaburagi really has no tact, telling people Reika being rejected. Or so he believes.

    So the reason he got over Yurie is because he did the event with Wakaba. Thank god! I was worried it might be due to Reika.

    1. What event :00? I feel like I missed out on something important, cuz other than the occasional conversation about the test rankings, I don’t remember how bakaburagi and wakaba became that friendly.

      1. Almost all chapters are written from Reika’s perspective.It’s not weird for Kaburagi and Wakaba to have met when Reika isn’t around.

        Reika mentioned before that there was an “event” in the original story. Where Kabugari vented at Wakakba about being rejected by Yurie. That is what I referred to.

  5. Yukino is to Reika what Masaya is to Yurie… maybe.

    I think everyone in that one scene supports Masaya x Reika. It wouldn’t be anything new, though.

  7. We were moving through the hall, step after step, when I made eye contact with Mao-chan whose eyes were glittering. Then Enjou who was still dancing with Aira-sama. He looked taken aback.

    1. Pretty sure he felt the same way when she punched him and when he saw her dress in the rat and butler costumes.

      The rest of the time is sniggering amusement.

  8. Yay, another chapter so soon! So, finally kaburagi closed that chapter of his life…and moved on to Wakaba. More stress for Reika now. I would really love to read a chapter from Enjou’s view.

  9. Thank you for the chapter.

    “It’s basically always the cradle or the grave for our dear heroine” too truthful.
    Kaburagi is making progress with Wakaba-chan, yes!, no Bakaburagi for Reika-sama(I hope it stays like that).

  11. I DON’T CARE ANYMORE~ 。・゚ヾ(✦థ ェ థ)ノ。゚・。 Move over, Enjou the older! Yukino is such a cute kid, with such an adorable attitude, that I can’t help but support him TToTT (shipping glasses-ON) Hehe. Looks like you’ve got some stiff competition Enjou the older.

    Yurie, please don’t be so sad over a baka when he’s being a baka. Bakaburagi just needs to learn when to stfu and not cause other people so much trouble. 0:)

    But whaa-!? Bakaburagi’s spring is actually arriving!

    Wow! This was a great chapter. Thanks for bringing to us so quickly! XDXDXD

  12. Poor Enjou. He’s a good brother and enjoys watching Reika’s silliness (with maybe some attraction there, but why hurry with the chief of Forever Alone Village?). However, the current situation will only lead to more work picking up the pieces for him later, and he’s smart enough to know it.

  13. that’s it. I’m shipping Enjou X Reika. So what if he’s not the most popular guy at school? so what if he isn’t the ML in the otome game? so what if he’s not the emperor? He’s the emperor of my <3
