Chapter 19 Dance Party (3)

 

“Miss Vorst, are you enjoying your time here?”

“Yes, thank you very much for the invitation.” I reply to the Third Prince’s question with a smile,

“Err, Emil-chan… About the trouble I caused you the other day, I’m sorry!”

 

    Bitch-chan who was behind Khais stepped forward and bowed her head, Khais and Gilber follow after her bowing their heads too, Bitch-chan smiles when seeing them like that.

But still, to use “-chan”… did she treat me like her friend?

 

“Bi-……. Siltat-sama, that matter’s already in the past so please, raise your heads.”

“Is that so? Thank you! Ah, it’s fine to call me Risty okay?”

 

    Right after I said it, she quickly raised the upper-half of her body with amazing vigor and smiles at me. Is she acting in a calculated way right now? Anyway, I downright ignore her request to call her by her first name.

 

“Risty, are you satisfied now?”

“Un!”

“Then, would you dance with me next?”

 

    Gilbert invites Bitch-chan to dance while blushing, Bitch-chan takes Gilbert’s hand after glancing at Khais and goes into the ring of the dance.

Oi you fools! Don’t leave Khais here!

With a sidelong glance, I see Khais were looking at Bitch-chan with a feverish gaze. I want to use this chance to get away from Khais.

“Seems like I was left behind.” He looks at me and says.

I only answers with “It seems so” with a smile, until then the ladies in the distance start to gather around Khais. While being washed away by the ladies that have gathered around him, I move around the wall as if hiding myself in  other people’s shadows.

“……Fuh”

   Lein-niisama doesn’t return even after Bitch-chan and the others dance for 5 tunes.

As expected it was boring so I was thinking of going outside, I heard voices coming closer. I looked towards the direction where the voices were coming from, there the First Prince walked slowly while looking around the surroundings. The 22 year old First Prince, Alshade, his silky blond hair reaches until below his shoulders with  jade green eyes, if Khais is like a prince from a picture book then Prince Alshade is like a man that directly came out from a love game woman like to play, a handsome prince.

I feel like our eyes meet when I was keep looking at his beautiful face. While I was thinking it is like meeting the eyes of an idol at a concert, Prince Alshade stops, talks to people around him and starts heading here slowly. There’s no way Prince Alshade has any business with me, we are not even acquaintances. Perhaps, he wants to meet with someone that is standing near me, while I was thinking that…

 

“Excuse me, are you Miss Emil Vorst?”

 

     I look up at the person who suddenly appeared, Prince Alshade was standing before me with a dazzling smile. When Prince Alshade talked to me, the surroundings suddenly became silent.

 

“Yes, pleased to meet you. I am George’s daughter from Count Vorst house,  Emil.”

Though there was a slight pause because I was surprised, I reply and bow quickly.

“Ah, thank goodness. I thought what should I do if I had the wrong person.”

 

    “Hoo…” Without breaking his smile, he put his hand on his chest and exhaled a relieved breath. Prince Alshade then bowed his body a little, offered his right hand to me and said, “Would you like to dance?” 

I can’t refuse him so with a cramped smile I said, “My pleasure” and took Prince Alshade’s right hand. He escorted me to the center of the dance hall and we began to dance.

 

“I’m sorry I invited you so suddenly like this.”

“No, it is a honor.”

“Hahaha, is it a bother perhaps? It’s the first time for me to see a person say “My pleasure” with a cramped smile.”

 

    Prince Alshade talks to me while we dance. Perhaps he invited me to dance because there’s something he wants to talk to me but, is there no other method where we don’t stand out? What’s more, he is nonchalantly using sarcasm. He somehow seems like a troublesome person.

 

“Honestly, I have an interest in you.”

“Ha, haaaa….?”

“Ah, please be assured because it’s not love. What I’m interested in is your magic.”

“Magic…. is it?”

“Yes, magic. I read some reports about you in Heinz academy. There hardly any mages who can use <Tornado> consecutively you see. And to take care of the kidnappers too, I was surprised.”

 

    Why does Prince Alshade read the academy’s report? Why does he know about the kidnapping incident? There are only doubts in me, Prince Alshade doesn’t care about that and continues to speak.

 

“Ah-, ‘Why does he know such matters?’ you maybe thought that now right? It’s written on your face. You see, I have to look for any information about excellent mages, it will trouble me if someone gets their hands on them first after all.”

“I-is that so?”

“It is. I started an investigation about you after I finished reading the report you see. It’s started to get more interesting after several months so I wanted to talk with you. It really a great help that Khais invited you here.”

 

    From what Prince Alshade said, it’s seems I was seen as a prospective recruit. If I remember correctly, surely many student from academy who have great ability will be recruited and work for kingdom at the royal palace. But still, I don’t think there’s a need for Prince Alshade to select them personally though.

  • kirindas

    Yay! Thanks for the new chapter! I hope your internet stabilizes soon! I know I would suffer if I didn’t have access to the net.

  • Seink

    New Job “Court Mage” Get! ^^
    Thanks for the translation!

  • doh

    Is this perhaps….a love interest……? Tho she’s 13 and he’s 22…..
    Hmmm….stilll….I need a potential love interest now! We’re 19 chapters in and he hasn’t appeared yet
    I pray it’s not one of the boys who appeared, right? Nor the professors

    • *cough* Cecilia *cough* ?

      • doh

        Not into the onee-same route, but I guess it’s a possibility?

  • Mari

    Oh hello first prince :)) Shame he’s so much older than her, could have been a (potential) love interest but hey, now she has potential connections. Being on good terms with the first prince is a good opportunity, hopefully this stems to some happier times in the future (also maybe a love interest? please?)

    • Neiden

      He is what? 9 years older?
      I know happy couples that have a bigger age difference.
      And in a medieval society where you want to get people with big magic power, I’m pretty sure that 9 years is basically nothing.
      If she hadn’t suddenly evolved into a super weapon of mass destruction, her brother would have probably tried to marry her to some noble for connections. She would have probably gotten with someone far worse than the first prince.

      Plus, she would become the Queen if she were to marry him :p

      And you’re forgetting the most important love interest : Cecilia.

      • Mari

        I’m honestly hoping that some foreign crown prince just come and sweeps her off her feet tbh.
        I mean this IS a medieval setting so 9 years isn’t too large a difference, but I’d assume that for controversy sake the author wouldn’t pair a 13 year old with a 22 year old. But who knows, if it does turn out that way, as long as it is a good/happy development and isn’t all creepy I’d probably be okay

        • Max Johnson

          There is literally a series being translated right now about a 20 something female lead in love with the 60+ knight…commander or something? Don’t know the exact details, didn’t read it myself, but I’ve seen it around on novelupdates.

          • Novel otaku desu~

            I have read it~
            Basically a 16 yo(i think, i forgot) fell in love with a 60+ yo knight captain. She is engaged with the prince but theprince fall in love with some (b*tch) other low level noble’s daughter and accuse her of hurting that (b*tch) low level noble’s daughter…. well the typical story, the engagement got broken but that annoying prince still bother the mc when the mc declare that she want to marry the knight captain who is basically a grandpa(FYI, the knight captain is single).

          • Mari

            Sounds an interesting concept, do you have the name? I’ll check it out. How much of it is translated?

          • Novel otaku desu~
          • Wentley

            Thanks! That sounds like a neat idea.

  • Iggy

    Runaway, fake your death and go somewhere where people don’t know you.

    • Thor

      She’s got enough magic power now that she can do that at her leisure if it looks like events are starting to plummet into the midden. For now, it’s probably best for her to keep doing what she’s doing–keeping a low profile and seeing who comes out of the woodwork. It’s easier to make plans to oppose the enemies you know about than the enemies you don’t.

  • Irina Akashira

    Thanks for the update

    Although I imagine the result, I vote that she reject all the proposes of both work and marriage till is turned legally an adult and get out of home

  • canaria23

    a fight for the throne, that’s what this is.

  • greyhide

    its difficult to imagine a 22 year old dancing with a 13 year old
    it’s either prince is a midget or emil is a giant 13yo hmmm….

    • Vlaeghe

      It’s not that weird really.
      If you look at competitive dancing, or even especially figure skating.
      You’ll notice the female partners are often considerably smaller/younger/slender/shorter than their male counterparts. Granted those sports also contain a large amount of lifting needing to be done by the men. So it sure is handy when your female partner is a lightweight, lol.

      I digress, but you got the point. 😛 … Also, women have a growth spurt much sooner than men, so at the age of 12-13 they’re usually not that short anymore… Not to the point on having to stand on someones feet anymore to pretend dance (like with young children, lol).

  • Awe

    I still want Bitch-chan to suffer a little, they definitely don’t feel any remorse :/

  • Pol Monte Blanc

    Poor mc never love for her. Nah, it doesnt matter when ure OP

  • Aoi-chi

    Ooh perhaps the royal family is seeking to marry girls with exceptional magic power into the family. To ensure strong magic in their successors~
    Thank you for the lovely translation~

    • Irina Akashira

      This is very common in medieval fantasy-setting novels

      But almost always this is just a tradition, not law.

      While she just nicely/correctly reject all the proposes marriages, she should be okey

      It would be very complicate turn a marriage for legal law, and if someone try to force to her or use the force, she can just kill them with a tornado and proclaim self-defence

      • Aoi-chi

        It’d be interesting if he did court her. Even if she refused, it might make her more approachable for other men. Aka opening the doors for a lovely aristocratic fantasy romance that I am oh so partial to~

  • Kuq Ku

    To short boo hoo 🙁 Ty for the translation!
