School-Hen Chapter 9


School Arc – Chapter 9 Shade POV


「How I’d love to know the person that got you to make that kind of face」

My words made her look back at me with a startled expression.

She’d staring at my elder sister and the person who I fear will be my future brother-in-law, flirting with each other. Placing the standard distance from there, were the onlookers, who were watching them, while blushing for some reason; but, I dare say, they were probably a Lycoris or a Wolf fan. Those two had whimsical devotees that thought things like 『I want to watch over the pair’s romance』.

I really want them to stop it. In various meanings of the word.

「May I invite you for a dance?」

Even though I invited her with my best smile, the girl– Lilium’s answer was blunt.

「The purpose of your invitation isn’t for a dance. It’s to have a talk with me, isn’t it?」

She’s a smart girl.

「Could the talk be about staying away from your elder sister」

「Of course not. I don’t have the right to say such a thing」

「But the reason why she doesn’t have any particular friends even though she’s been yearning for them for so long, is because you were both in the way, no?」

She’s not only smart, she seems to be fairly brave too.

「That’s a misunderstanding. Neither I nor Wolf had ever considered a thing like wanting to keep Lycoris a loner, you know?」

「But if she had your cooperation, she should’ve found it easy to cultivate an understanding with those around her」

「Well, it’s… like, you know. It’s not as if I proactively made her a loner or anything, but still…」

I dipped my voice a little lower.

「If that person ends up spending all her time on other people, won’t it be lonely?」

Are you going to laugh at me or criticize me?

But, Lilium’s reaction was neither one of the two.

「I can also understand that kind of sentiment」

(Oh?)

Maybe it was because I showed her my true intentions, Lilium’s expression became a little softer. Even so, it was only to the extent that I turned from a 『threat』 to just another 『stranger』.

「So you can understand jealousy. Then, what’s a sentiment difficult for you to understand?」

「…………」

I decided to try to get one step closer to her thoughts.

「Maybe is it familial affection or friendship, perhaps?」

「It seems you know a great deal about my past, don’t you?」

Without flying out into a rage, she showed a provocative smile. It was a smile I’m sure was an expression that was the opposite of an 『it was supposed to be impossible for you to find out』expression.

The knowledge I acquired about Lilium Valley’s childhood, was that since she possessed power 『inappropriate to her life』 , perhaps with that, her relationship with other people, which was supposed to be depicted as decently peaceful, collapsed.

Her abilities came to light in the form of an accidental discharge of power. From what I learned about the state of affairs at that time, it seemed every one of them had said that it was something short of a miracle that no one turned up dead.

And then, her mother, not able to bear the terror of her daughter’s power, left the house. Her relatives, terrified of being connected to her, cut off ties with her. Her friends, regardless of knowing her innermost thoughts, whether it was out of fear or jealousy, all distanced themselves from her.

Her father, in particular, was the worst. That man took great pains to determine whether Lilium had any value. Without ever handing her over to the care of the association, it seemed he kept her confined for who knows how long while he went looking around for a person who would buy his own daughter for the highest sum.

「If you know about my past, then I guess you’re uneasy having a person like me by her side, right?」

「Well, to be honest, I am worried. That’s because I can’t read your intentions」

She was aiming to get into a career in the association right after graduation. Since her will and her intention, which was wanting to monitor strong magic holders at the association, were consistent, that was an almost decided fact.

For people entering into the association, I wonder if there was some significance in having the status of being a friend of Lycoris, the duke’s daughter. Of course, it wasn’t like being a friend of an influential person can be disadvantageous, though.

「Though you say intentions, I never thought of such a grand thing … certainly, it still hasn’t been long since she and I met. But, I’m completely fascinated by her. Even though it looks like she’s surrounded by a lot of people, she seems alone, one way or the other. Although those girls around her love to look at her from a small distance away, despite that, it looks as though Lycoris doesn’t realize this and it only makes her feel lonely」

「Do you like lonely people?」

When I asked this jokingly, she sent back an exceptionally serious look.

「Yes, that’s right. If you were to ask me, flickering between things like kindness or affection is easy. I like people who take the trouble to seek me. I like people who yearn for something earnestly」

I couldn’t laugh at her.

「… but, she isn’t really alone in the truest meaning, right? After all, you’re here, and he’s around too」

Lilium sent back another glance towards Lycoris and her companion, those fresh verdure eyes narrowed with what looked to be sadness.

「If it’s a command, I’ll place some distance from her. But I don’t want to hurt her so I won’t ignore her, just enough so all of you won’t feel uneasy」

Staring at me with eyes that radiated some kind of tragic determination, I felt kind of bad. Whether I say something or I don’t, I’ll feel troubled, so eventually, my mouth opened.

I really am soft on women.

「That person — Lycoris, is someone that makes you sort of believe in things like kindness or affection, you know?」

Lilium had on a face that could be described as having been caught off guard.

「So, why don’t you try getting along with her as best you can?」

「…Is it alright? That I… still continue to be at her side」

「Like I’ve been saying so many times, the right to decide that isn’t with me, you know. To begin with, no matter what I say, that person would eventually do whatever she wants anyway」

「Would her knight give me his permission to stay by her side as well?」

「That’d be beyond– that’d be beyond scary for anyone who causes harm to my elder sister, Wolf will persistently pry up their past or continuously torment them or something, but, he’s pretty lenient to anyone other than that」

「… I’ll keep that in mind」

The moment Lilium left my side, she waved her hand at me, carrying the first cute smile befitting her age on her face.

While waving back a hand in return, I thought. By all means, I want her to do her best.

Rather than seeing her flirting with a guy (Wolf) , isn’t it a given that seeing her get along with a girl (Lilium) is infinitely better for my mental health?

    thanks a lot!
    lol cute—-! i see, hm—- i suppose i’ll go on and ship shade and lilium, kekeke! anyway, lilium clearly likes lycoris for herself, and not because of her status or whatever. lilium’s past is truly unfortunate. poor lycoris, not noticing that she’s being admired from a distance…-sobs- well, hey, if lilium gets together with shade, won’t that mean she’ll be family with lycoris? then she can really live happily, yay—!

    all right, then! ship shade and lilium, and wolf and lycoris! …well, what happens to the other guys now lol?

    hohoho~! I can’t believe that the last line is really the same~! But, but, but, in the April Fools chapter, I really thought that it fits him, haha~ XD!

    — Thanks for the chapter~ ^^.

  4. Shio

    Thanks for the translation. That last line is golden XD

  5. Shade surely like open a Yuri door huh~
    make me want to tease him so much~

  6. She really is into Lycoris =o
    Thanks for the chapter~

  7. Hahahah, so Shade kinda accepts Wolf as his future brother-in-law! So different from Keith Claes and Prince Jared~
    I love seeing relationships like this! Thanks for the chapter, good job as always! 😀

  8. “Rather than seeing her flirting with a guy (Wolf) , isn’t it a given that seeing her get along with a girl (Lilium) is infinitely better for my mental health?”

    You dun goofed, Shade. Blame yourself if you got another yanderival because of your carelessness.

  9. Ritsuru

    “Rather than seeing her flirting with a guy (Wolf) , isn’t it a given that seeing her get along with a girl (Lilium) is infinitely better for my mental health?”

    Oh god, my favorite line of the day! XD

  10. So is Lilium yandere as well? It is a safe bet seeing how everyone else is.

  11. blackrose156

    Thank you for the chapter. Great work!

  12. Lycoris run away! They may not show it blatantly but your 2 boys are definitely infinitely yanderes. Especially Wolf, he’s totally David McCall from “The Fear.”

  13. zell324th

    thanks for the chapter

  14. Lilium definitly has the background of a possible yandere…
    Well, for now, she just seems happy to be able to be with her. Let’s hope she doesn’t become more… demanding.

    And is Shade trying to put his sister onto the yuri route?
    I know that seeing her with another guy is bad for his health (and that he knows that he is in the little borther-zone), but still, I’m not sure lesbians are accepted by a medieval society.
    Plus, she still has to bear heirs for her family.

    Thanks for the hcapter 😀

  15. renuac

    Thank you for the chapter!

    Being the heroine in a reincarnated villainess story is apparently a sure road to suffering, huh? It’s kind of amusing that Lycoris is infinitely warmer and more innocent than Lily. I like what this chapter reveals about Wolf and Shade’s relationship too.

    • Katt

      Yes, this chapter revealed a lot. Seeing Lycoris from an outside view in such a setting really put a spin on things. It seems like Lycoris herself may be the heroines preferred catchable target. Could Lily become the villain? It’s a very promising chapter 🙂

      If you’re not careful Lycoris you may still die from yandere obsession.

  16. I ship Shade with Lily. Though I wonder when more yandere parts will show up.

  17. Beginning of chapter: Shade… c-cute!!!!!

    Ending of chapter: Shade… e-evil!!!!! XD

    Thanks so much for all your hard work!!!!!!

  18. Another great chapter! I’m glad to see such interesting interactions between the side characters. Lillum shows a degree of self awareness and knack for feeling people out I don’t see often. She was able to accurately spot Licoris’s loneliness. Something that she herself doesn’t really acknowledge. Although it does show up in the form of her going “OMFG my first female friend!!!” Shade’s also really interesting. His “I don’t have that right” speech is quiet telling.

    Somehow I want to ship these two together haha.

    Thanks for the chapter! And lol the April Fool’s joke version wasn’t THAT far off the mark.

  19. YoungMind

    A truly interesting point of view 👍

  20. LilyXShade OTP?

    That’ll make things boring though~

    Thanks for the chapter!

  21. y4kuu

    thank you for the chapter ^^

  22. FernwehDesu

    Lmao, that last line made me laugh, at the same time, gave me a heartache.
    Uooh~ Shade or Wolf? This is a question that deserves to be at the national exams.
    Thanks for the chapter.

  23. thanks for the great chapter XD

  24. I just checked and it looks like the first 2 volumes were 9 (+1 extra) chapters each. So it’s not just my impression that the arc is dragging on. It’s strange though, I would have thought all volumes would be the same length.

    My ship is Lycoris X Lilium. I will also accept Lycoris X Wolf.

  25. HAHAHA SHADE! I see your true intentions now! You were actually so sneaky eh~~~

  26. edgewright

    Oh Shade, Shade, Shade. Are you being sneaky or just oblivious? Or both. We’ll say half and half.

  27. AlwaysLate

    Lilium is so mature! A perfect counterpart to Lycoris! It needs to be Lilium or Wolf after all, only, the Wolf ship has already set sail •w•

    You can do it, Lilium! Don’t lose to the fiance character!

  28. LovelyJane

    I’m voting for Lycoris and Lilium, yuri route banzai~.

    For those thinking about needing heirs and because both are girls that it is impossible, well you are WRONG, its a world of MAGIC, google search futanari. 😛

    • LovelyJane

      (Continuation) I recommend google searching “Futabu! Mix”, it is a H-manga and there is an H-anime adaption of it as well.

  29. Chaku

    Ah so much love for this story, I think Lyrcoris is thinking about her future, Im wondering what she wants, does she want to be a wife or to explore a life denied her in the past? I really love her very much, I must say though I like both wolf and shade, they have little quirks that are endearing and make u go squee when it involves Lycoris, I really want more PoVs! Thank you translator sama! bow.. bow..

  30. booya

    Will there ever be a blood bath happening? and thank you for the chapters

  31. DOH

    Thank you for the chapter!~

  32. JJ

    Thank you so much for translating!

  33. Katt

    I loved this chapter. This showed the greatest development so far. This whole time Lycoris has been dreadfully awaiting the “Heroines introduction” and the beginning to Lycoris’ bad ending, the loss of Wolf and her own death.

    The author portrayed this as a survival story from the heroines yandere admirers. Now it’s revealed that perhaps the Lead character is not the heroine but Lycoris herself. This completely changes the tone of the story and is a big reveal. But even if Lycoris is the female lead does that really make her safe? She is still surrounded by yandere characters. And she has already mistakenly tried to force Wolf onto the heroine three times. We know he is a particularly violent yandere, what if he kills her in a fit of possesive jealousy? What about the others? And The heroine Lily, is she interested in Lycoris now as well?

    I can’t wait for the next update! We’ve finally gotten to the main story. I want to see how Lily’s introduction changes things. Poor Lycoris, she doesn’t have a clue.

  34. I suspect that the MC (Lily) is also Yandere wannabe

  35. Kawaii Panda

    Seems like my thought was right xD hehe kinda expect that he will told the “elope” thing again lol xD

Tell me what you think~
