Selena Gilbert. That’s the heroine’s name. She was the same age as Irene, 17 years old; and, if this was similar to the game, she was supposed to be the secretary in the student council. 

The game couldn’t start without her. At the time when Irene felt like she could see some hope, Walt crushed it to the ground when he spoke up. 

「Speaking of which, Auguste, about the record of proceedings the other day. Tell Selena-chan to confirm it later. It’s on that desk」

Alright, yeah, as expected, she’s here. Irene listened to their conversation with pretty much a resigned state of mind. 

「Yes, I understand. To think she works this fast, that girl is pretty diligent, isn’t she?」

「She is……Well, she needs to do her best if wants to be the White Lily princess――By the way, who’s that kid?」

Irene greeted Walt politely when he shifted his attention to her as if observing her. 

「Nice to meet you. I’m the transfer student, Airi Kahlua」

「……Oh? You’re so cute. So, what business does a transfer student has with the student council?」

「He was called by James――Eh, now that I think about it, where’s the main guy?」

「Inside the conference room. It seems like he was checking the procedures of the previous school festivals. He’s diligent because he’s the student council’s president」

「Oh……Sorry Airi, can you wait a moment? I’m going to call him」

After leaving Irene with those words, Auguste headed towards the door at the back. While Auguste called out to James, Walt stood up and went towards her. 

「The President is scary, so I’m leaving, transfer student-kun. Good luck」

「Yes」

Walt’s feet stopped in his tracks contrary to Irene’s expectation that he would simply pass her by. When Irene looked up in alarm, Walt who was bending his waist, drew his face close to hers. 

If she was Irene Lauren D’Autriche, she would’ve slapped him on reflex, but perhaps getting caught off guard completely, she became stiff instead. 

「……You, you smell good?」

「Wh-, what?」

「I’m sensitive to smell, y’know. You see, isn’t there a saying that a good woman has a good smell?」

Perhaps finally recovered from her surprise earlier, Irene managed to reply back without showing her discomposure. 

「You’re right. By the way, Senpai, you’re too close」

Walt then took a polite distance after being called out calmly by Irene. 

「If you have a lover, please check her out again. Then, see you later」

Walt left with a meaningful smile plastered on his face until the end. 

(……I don’t think my disguise has been discovered, though……I don’t even wear perfume……)

Feeling bothered, she sniffed the hem of her clothes but she could only smell the scent from the sanitary soap. Auguste came out of the back room while she was still troubled by the fact that perhaps smelling like a soap isn’t a manly thing to do.

「You called him in, right? Do your job properly」

「Isn’t it okay for me to keep him waiting? I’m busy you know」

It was hard for Irene to see the guy who just emerged from the back room while dusting off the dust with the backlight. Irene squinted her eyes while waiting for the male student to stand in front of the student council’s president’s desk. 

James Charles. By all rights, he was the Young Lord of the Principality of Milchetta――Irene recalled just up until that point then wryly smiled at the particularly similar setting with Claude. 

He was a character who would become the last boss in the sequel. Like in a typical otome game, he was the student council’s president at the Misha Academy who held enormous influence in the student council. 

In contrast with Auguste, he was someone with pale-colored hair and a glassy marble-like eyes. Although she could still remember his CGs, he was truly someone who possessed extraordinary beauty. Of course, that would be so. 

All monsters were beautiful, with the Demon King as the reigning champion in the  list――One could also say that his good appearance was the natural consequence from being a half-monster. 

That’s right, he was the last boss in the sequel who suffered from being a half-monster. 

His life was being targeted because of his bloodline. He, who couldn’t be both a monster nor a human, had no place to belong to and was gradually cornered by humans; He then used the magic incense to incite the monsters to fight back against the Principality of Milchetta. 

And then, he threw away his humanity and proclaimed himself as the Demon King’s successor, seeking a place to belong. In the end, he was defeated by the Holy Sword. 

(But, perhaps, he still hasn’t done anything yet)

She must make a careful judgment. Because she was a woman who would become the Demon King’s bride. If he didn’t do anything, yet he was being judged on the pretext of being a half-monster, then she didn’t deserve the position of becoming the Demon King’s wife. She didn’t want to get rid of him for the sake of preventing the development in the game.  

「So you’re the transfer student, Airi Kahlua……I heard about you from Auguste. You immediately caused a disturbance, what a troublesome…」

「James, I did explain to you that it was the guy’s fault just now, didn’t I? Not him」(Auguste)

「If you’re going to cause problems every time a woman was hit, I want you to leave this instance」(James)

「――Just because a woman was hit?」(Irene)

Auguste who was tenaciously facing James, stiffened after listening to Irene’s deep voice. 

However, James only sat on the President’s chair while feigning ignorance. He looked just like a ruler from somewhere. 

「That kind of thing is an everyday occurrence. There will be no end to it if we were to deal with each one of them」

「……In other words, the President doesn’t feel like improving this situation?」(Irene)

She replied with a sneer.  

「It troubles me that I always get misunderstood by transfer students. If you want to be a knight in shining armor, then earn a position. Also, in this academy, I’m the one holding the absolute power. You better remember that」(James)

As she just remembered that he had that kind of character, Irene who had trained her facial muscles, kept on smiling.

「That’s all for our business. I’m busy with the preparation for the school festival. It’s better if you go back to your dorm and look forward to the academy life starting tomorrow……but, I’m sure it’s not going to be something satisfactory」

Keeping a smiling face, Irene watched James heading towards the inner conference room once again while thinking of her fiancé.  

(Claude-sama is truly amazing)

He was an exceptional man who wasn’t drunk in power. She, who was about to succumb to temptation still had some way to go. She wanted to endeavor to be as diligent as her fiance. 

That’s why she would never strike him, the half-monster, down with the Holy Sword from behind.

    1. I have a confession to make. I’m not really good at reading katakana so I’m not sure whether I’m getting his name right. So I used google translate instead and it says James Charles. Looks legit to me. 😂😂😂😅😂🤣
      This is his name in katakana: ゼームス・シャルル if you have any suggestion feel free to say it.

      1. The katakana reads “Zehmusu Sharuru”. I think this is the Japanese reading of the name “James Charles” in French(?) or some such language? It gets complicated because Japanese adopt words from many languages and make them into phonetic katakana the way they think it’s supposed to sound. Sometimes the pronunciation is on-target and other times it’s a hot mess. -_- You can probably keep it as “James Charles” without any issue. Thanks for translating!

  1. Aa.. I just get the plot now that the casts of first game series and the second were different.
    I thought that Lilia was still the heroine here.
    Thank you for the update! 🙂
