Episode 4: Belfreya Alunst’ Answer
“By the way, I will tell you this only for future references. Please never stop approaching me, O.K?
“E~, is there something wrong?”
“For that simpleton and a natural airhead, who else is going to be able to handle her?”
Shana began to wonder if there is something wrong with her Bible of past knowledge. Shana couldn’t help but tilted her head. While holding his head, Syulein thought about the future. With this, the ultimate battle between the Heroine and the rival will be settled somewhat. Relief began to spread in his heart. During those three months of battle between these girls, his heart began to sweat a bit.
“By the way, Edward-san?”
“Ah, you can just call me Syulein. If you are going to continue fighting with Bell as her rival, both of us are going to be in a very long relationship.”
“I will happily accept it then, but…… when are you going to properly confess your feeling to Belfreya-san?”
“— Ge ho~, Go ho~”
Even if she herself is the Heroine, the current situation is still surprising to Shana. From the outsider’s perspective, it was quite obvious how both of them thought of each other. Even so, for the two of them who did not seem to show any progress, it made her felt impatient, somehow or others.
“No. Confession aside, that fellow is my fiancée you….”
“If you keep saying such a thing, I will kidnap Belfreya-san away.”
“For a Heroine to say that, are you trying to make some kind of a joke!?”
If Syulein did not know about the Heroine past, he must have thought that he heard some joke. His stupid fiancée; a fiancée who only has a Heroine in her eyes. Probably, the number of times that he felt jealous over the Heroine could no longer be counted. The number of times when he held his head down was also incalculable.
As if she detecting something troubling, Shana quickly looked over Syulein back. Curious over her action, he signaled her with his eyes. However, Shana did not respond to his gaze, and instead, a smile began to spill from her lips. Is there something behind me was what Syulein thought at that time.
“Belfreya-san is a straight forward person. Therefore, she, herself, probably did not aware of your feelings towards her. Thus, she also did not realize that her feeling was actually already been reciprocated.”
Shana narrowed her eyes as if she is seeing something interesting and quickly close the distance between them. Syulein was startled by her movement; however, he did not walk away as he did not feel any threat from her. Although she was smart, at the same time, she was still childish and mischievous. And at the current moment, Shana was smiling like a fairy.
“Therefore, this is a little meddling from me.”
Letting her mouth came into close contact with Syulein ears, she gently whispered. Hearing that, Syulein eyes grew big as he stared at her.
When he tried to open his mouth to question her regarding the truth in her word-
“Rein-sama’s first kiss is mine. I am going to wear a one-piece, white dress and Rein-sama will wear a white tuxedo. Both of us will be watching the sea on the romantic beach while our silhouette will overlap each other due to the sunset. And that is when we plan to kiss. After that, both of us will call each other [baby], and then we will have our second kiss under the starry sky. That is why Rein-sama’s first kiss is mine. I will never forgive you!!!”
“One time is enough, don’t keep repeating it!!”
The door to the entrance that connected the rooftop and the school building behind Syulein was vigorously opened with a bang, while Belfreya bellowed in a single breath. Belfreya did not think much of the current situation as it was similar to what had been going around inside her brain, perfectly thanks to her daily delusion power. For the first time, Shana felt refreshed while looking at the Ore-sama Mr. President (17 years old) with his fiancée.
That orange eyes were shining strongly, and the golden hair slowly moistens due to the sweat on her face. Belfreya quickly made her way towards Syulein and Shana. There was neither anger nor sadness in her face; instead, her pure burning fighting spirit was reflected in her eyes.
If it was an ordinary Heroine, once they witnesses their fiancé and rival were snuggling up and kissing on the rooftop; you will feel so shocked that they will turn back and ran down the stairs. Then, in order to solve the misunderstanding, the hero will start chasing after her. This will trigger the event of the Hero chasing over the Heroine.
But this is Belfreya Alunst. Whatever convention in front of her, she will directly smash it. As expected of Belfreya san, Shana smiled happily as she watched her rival.
“Sa~a, Shana-san. Let’s settle everything today. Let have a competition on who has more feeling towards Rein-sama!”
“Actually, I was wobbling a bit just now.”
“Oh, you are wobbling…. eh?”
Initially, Belfreya had approached the two of them and uttering defiant words to oppose her opponent. However, realizing her blunder, her mouth was hanging open; and towards that girl, Shana walked slowly as she closed their distance with each other
“For me, you always seem dazzling, bright, cheerful, and persistent. Therefore, as much as I am proud of myself for working hard to stand next to you, you are also my number one target.”
“…….I cannot win. As your rival in love, I was defeated. However, will you still compete with me as the Heroine’s rival? From here on, I want to always walk beside you. Is it possible for me to be that kind of rival to you?”
The radiance could not hide her sentiment. Shana was scared because she knew the real reason why Belfreya trying to win over the Heroine. Even now, as the conclusion between victory and defeat arrived, will Belfreya still see her as a rival? She admitted that even she did not know about it.
“……..Because you are there, that I am here right now.”
Despite Shana’s anxiety, Belfreya’s powerful voice shone through.
“Truthfully, I was quite a foolish child. During the lesson, I need to get help from Rein-sama; even when exercising, it took my breath away in the beginning. Until I met Rein-sama, I have never thought of making any effort, and the things that I considered painful to do begin to accumulate one by one.
Belfreya would never reach this point if she had only been depending on her knowledge. She continued to positively make efforts since the wall that she needs to overcome is high. All of this was because there is a reason why she could not lose by any means.
“Despite that, I was able to work hard on my study, training, and ethics because my goal is you. When I first met you at school, the feeling of tension and anxiety … … And the feeling of not going to lose is making me happy. Even now, that feeling did not cloud over. Shana-san, will you let me stay as your rival?”
“Of course, the huge wall is already been raise.”
“Eeee… that should be my line.”
Both of them gently reached out their hand towards each other before they firmly grasped it. The victorious expression on their faces was similar to those who had vowed never to lose. This made Syulein, who had been thrown out of the loop since the beginning, feeling a sense of weakness.
“From now on, I will find a more wonderful love. I will not lose on my studies and my training. I will show you the status that I have built up.”
“I’ll accept your challenge. Be it beauty or popularity I will win everything.”
This is a declaration of rivalry to overthrow each other. On that day, both girls have become the true rival who could no longer be substituted by anyone else.
“My business here is already finished. Now, I will leave the young people alone.”
A few moments later, Shana gently removed her hand from Belfreya and bowed to both of them simultaneously. She then turned sharply and left the rooftop. The way she moved her leg will surely put those models into shame. It would have the sound effect of [Tattatta]. Belfreya pondered about that as she was being left alone with her fiancé. At the same time, the rooftop slowly being wrapped in the evening sky.
“My birthday is early than her, and Rein-sama is also older by a year; however, she has something like an adult’s charm, isn’t she?”
“There is no way I am answering that kind of question… Oh well, you can do it.”
The tension that the two of them felt as they watched the door from where Shana had left through began to loosen. Syulein was scratching his head with [gashigashi] sound while watching Belfreya, who exhaled a little breath, trying to relax.
“Hey, the rooftop should be off-limit for the time being, so how did you get the key?”
“After the committee meeting, I went to Rein-sama’s classroom, and I met with Fior-sama. He suddenly told me, [This is bad, Bell-chan! The last boss had kidnaped Syulein. This is the short cut that leads to the event where the fiancée is being saved from captivity!] And with a very refreshing face, he gave me the key to the rooftop.”
“That bastard. He completely enjoying this.”
As promised, I was waiting for Bell – chan in the classroom properly was probably what he would say when I scold him tomorrow. For that time being, he seems to be holding Belfreya from interrupting Shana’s story; however, for the sake of his enjoyment, he surely did not hold back after that.
Since Shana had come with prepared determination, Fior also understood Syulein’s feelings. Hence, Fior had been trying to hold Belfreya back a little bit due to her hot-bloodedness. Syulein could not help but had a scary premonition that his friend would grin gleefully when he heard about this story tomorrow.
As time passed, Belfreya’s eyes begin to shift uneasily. She had begun to calm down as she took time to calmly analyzed the situation
“Ano, Rein-sama. That….. Did you really turn Shana-san down?”
“Wa~ well that is the end result.”
“I am really, really glad. Well, it might seem strange for me to say this, but she is a really wonderful person. She is so wonderful that it might be a waste for her to be my rival.”
Whatever words that Belfreya used to protect Shana, she herself knew best what is revolving in her own head. She is the one who was hoping that Syulein will not choose Shana the most. In the end, she was also the one who had been saying a discourteous thing to both Shana and Syulein.
Even though she knew that she still could not stop talking, a person like her will never get chosen. Even if she worked hard to have the same specs as Shana, she is still rejected in the end. Did he select someone equal to her? Will she be able to accept it? Such faint-hearted thought began to appear.
“Therefore, if Shana-san was rejected, Rein-sama will really–”
“I’m having no regret.”
Feeling somewhat impatient, Syulein quickly blocked Belfreya’s word. While looking at her surprised face, Syulein quickly walked towards his fiancée. Belfreya could only watch as he came closer, so close that she could easily reach him with her hand.
“Oi Bell. I want to check something with you. So, listen carefully to what I am going to say.”
“E~, Ye, Yes!”
“Even though Bell has been aiming to overthrown the Heroine for seven years already; and keep practicing without ever giving up while at it, is it all because… you did not want me to be taken by the Heroine?
As Syulein speak, Belfreya began to listen earnestly when suddenly his word make her stop for a moment. Blushes started to appear as if the fire suddenly flare up somewhere. Looking at Belfreya’s red ear, and Syulein begins to feel convinced towards Shana’s meddling.
Even without any word, he still understood. That expression and attitude were not something that this girl could lie about. He had always watched her, the one who always been looking forward to the day when the Heroine would be defeated and all the effort she did to win over her. All the things that she has been doing until now are all for his sake.
“You (omae), what kind of face are you making…”
Syulein turned his head down as he tried to hide his amusing smile from showing on his face with his hand. From the side, it could be seen that there was a slight reddish-tinged appeared on his ear.
“About the things that you’ve been talking just now.”
“A, that, a little while ago.”
“Kiss. That kiss. The one you said on a romantic beach is good.”
Towards that slightly casual words by that boy, Belfreya quickly gave her affirmation. Her heart was currently restless, and the heat felt uncomfortable as if on the verge of being short-circuited. Despite that, Syulein had decided to finally use the present initiatives to drive their current circumstance into her brain.
“I prefer the other situation more. Are you okay with that?”
“E~ But that is my delusion for so many years…. but if Rein-sama prefers something else over that.”
“Okay, then let me say it.”
With that, Syulein took one step forward; the distance between them now was almost non-existence. Syulein scooped Belfreya golden hair and gently whispered into her slightly redden ear.
“….on the rooftop after school, with the sunset behind our back. That kind of situation is no good?”
“After school, on the school’s rooftop, sunset……”
One by one, Belfreya began to ponder on the keywords. A lot of time has passed as the beautiful sunset sky begins to spread over the rooftop where both of them currently are. As everything begins to dye in red, Belfreya finally understood what Syulein meant to say.
Belfreya could not avert her eyes from looking at his jade green eyes, filled with his feeling. His fist was slightly shaking while he strongly continued to grasp his own hand tightly. That orange eyes look puzzled at the scene in front of her before she begins to remember something, and her eyes turn into a determination.
My rival has told him with all her might about her own feeling. Of course, there is obviously the feeling of fear. Still, without deceiving my heart, I should go at it with all my might.
Then, she, as the rival of the Heroine, should not lose. Those who have the courage to overcome their weaknesses and bravely step into the future are heroines.
“…..Wonderful, it is such a wonderful situation.”
“I, Belfreya Alunst, like Syulein Edward. I really like it. Therefore, from now on and in the future, please continue to be with me.”
As she instantly wiped her tears away, Belfreya began to laugh. She looked dazzling like the sun while the warmth illuminated everything around her. While she smiled like a flower, Syulein look stunned as he poked that girl’s head.
“Really, you… having come this far, you should have at least let me as a man say that first. Take this…”
“No, it hurts.”
Belfreya looked sullen due to that slight ache; however, a smile began to overflow from her lips. Syulein then bent his body a bit so that his face aligned with Belfreya.
“At first, I thought that something outrageous had been pushed to me as my fiancée. She keeps wielding her strength with all her might, training like an idiot while continued to dream about the Heroine. At that time, I thought, what the heck is this? Still, somehow, I cannot take my eyes off you. To make matters worse, I am jealous of those eyes which does not seems to have me in them. I kept on thinking about what I should do so that I will be reflected in your eyes.”
Syulein gently swept Belfreya forelock before holding her cheek in his hand.
“……I like you, Bell.”
The two shadows which were formed by the sunset quietly overlapped.
—-Like this, while holding the overthrown Heroine in his chest, that girl will continue to run as there are still many things awaiting her in the future.
TL: The Villainous Lady Aims to Overthrown the Heroine ~Fight~ is now complete! The last bit is so cute. As expected of Bell. ♡(ŐωŐ人)
This project is meant as a way for me to repay society a bit… And I sincerely thankful for all translators who took their time to translate stuff for all fans out there. After experiencing it a bit, now I know how tough to do this stuff. (￣^￣)ゞ
As of now, I’m quite satisfied with my first work. Though my Japanese is basic at most (from anime), I somehow managed to MTL-ing on this with a Japanese online dictionary. Hopefully, even if it is not 100%, I at least managed to get 80% of the meaning across ((((；ﾟДﾟ))).
Thanks for following and loving this story and it was fun while it lasted
(♡ >ω< ♡)
Until next time, Ja ne~ (*＾▽＾)／
