Chapter 28: Moonlight Flying Grass
T/N: This is partially edited. Appreciate it if anyone willing to point out any mistake. I will post around 10 chapters within these 24 hours [The 5 promised birthday month chapters and additional chapters that were due], so please look forward to it, okay!! No #4!!!
Since this was a dance party, I danced my first dance with the Prince.
“What is it?”
“You are really good at dancing.”
“Well, I could not really afford to embarrass you, you know.”
What’s with this guy? Are you saying that you have been working hard for my sake?
I was truly amazed by that.
“I thought that you are only a fool.”
“I think that it is a hallucination that I thought this stupid person could finally become a little bit cute after so long.”
“Why don’t you just fall in love with me?”
“Please restrict your dream while sleeping….”
I was happy looking at the Prince, who appeared to be dissatisfied with my reply.
Even though this was a dance party, some spaces were allocated to anyone who wished to enjoy a light meal.
Labra-chan and I were staring at those dishes together.
“It’s so delicious.”
“Yes! I was even more delicious when I ate it together with Labra-chan!!”
I felt so happy looking at Labra-chan, who had been laughing so cutely.
“Ne~ let’s go to the balcony?”
“That is an excellent idea! Let’s take some dessert with us!!”
After my dance with the Prince, several other men had also come up and offered their hand to me, which I ended up responded to all of it. Due to that, my physical strength had nearly reached its limit. Yet, despite that, some people had been looking my way to invite me for another dance, so I was quite relieved to escape to the balcony.
“Then, let’s have a relaxing girl’s talk.”
Labra-chan put a lot of cake on the plate before she pulled my hand as we headed towards the balcony.
The balcony was lighted by the moonlight, which also illuminated the nearby forest.
I was entranced by it.
“Naru, Broudo-sama is truly a wonderful person.”
“You’re right about that!! A truly wonderful person!”
“Don’t you like him?”
“I do like him.”
“I mean, in a romantic sense.”
I was stupefied for a moment.
“Since I am an aristocrat, I am supposed to enter a political kind of marriage.”
“If it is you, Naru, I know that you will be able to marry for love.”
I smiled at her bitterly.
“I do not really understand on this matter of love.”
“It has been so long since the last time I fell in love…For a long time, I had been immersing myself in doing stuff that I was interested in….. that I never had someone that I can call as a lover or friend….. That’s why I am so happy when I became your friend, Labra-chan.”
Labra-chan looked a little troubled before she replied to me.
“I want Naru always to be happy. That’s why I thought that Broudo-sama is truly a wonderful person who suits Naru best.”
“Broudo-sama is a lovely person, which is so unlike me; therefore, a lovelier person will suit him better.”
“…There is no lovelier woman other than you, Naru.”
“Labra-chan is here.”
“………Are you being sarcastic again?”
“I am not!!”
“I do not have such a huge boob, anyway.”
Labra-chan appeared as if she was on an eating binge as she tossed a small piece of cake into her mouth and chomped on it.
She looked like a squirrel, and it was so cute.
It was at that moment.
Suddenly, I could see the light started to pop up from the direction of the forest.
What was that?
What’s more, several lights started to pop up one after another.
I think it was probably something different.
It was then, when…
Tentou spoke to me.
Tentou then handed me a transparent bottle.
“This is the seed of the moonlight flying grass. It is a rare kind of grass which releases its spore on a moonlit night.”
A rare plant!!
I then told Labra-chan what Tentou had told me when he handed me the bottle.
“I will go and collect it for a while.”
“E~? Are you really going to go there?”
“Yes. I will be back before the end of the dance party.”
“It will be that long?”
“I am not that good at dancing, actually.”
“Don’t run away, then!”
I waved at Labra-chan before I started to run.
Here and there, the moonlight flying grass kept popping a glowing pale light, which made it appeared like a dandelion flower.
I was walking through the forest before I came upon an open space.
What’s more, all the moonlight flying grass’s seed seemed to be drifting all over the area.
It seemed that those grasses appeared to be growing en masse at this particular location.
At that time, I believed that I saw something that appeared to be a man emerged from the circle of the moonlight flying grass. (T/N: Me fantasizing this)
“Naru? What are you doing here?”
Now that I looked at him, I could also see the bottle in Broudo-sama’s hand.
“The same reason why you are also here, I guess.”
Broudo-sama grinned as he replied to my question.
“I thought that a fairy had finally appeared upon this fantasy-like place.”
“You appeared to be even more beautiful today compared to the usual.”
Broudo-sama, who appeared in this magical place, was even more attractive than usual.
I wanted to say so. However, none of those words came out.
“I often came here during the time I attended the school here.”
“I have also gone through this beautiful place before.”
“If that is so, then I will surely meet you again here in the future.”
While the both of us were talking about the characteristics of the moonlight flying grass, the time seemed to fly away quickly.
“…….We need to return soon.”
“The fun time always seemed to be so short.”
“This is my most favourite place. Therefore, if possible, I will be happy if you do not tell anyone about it.”
Broudo-sama slowly smiled.
I wanted this person to be happy.
I vaguely thought about that.
When I returned to the party, I had the feeling as if I had been dreaming about something, that I ended up being scolded by the Prince harshly.
Prince, I am really going to put a curse on you.
I do not think that it was such a bad idea to implement it.
A/N Were the both of them flirting again?
T/N: I am not sure what’s wrong with my WordPress or maybe my laptop, but all the spacing seemed to be off somehow or other [despite me fixing it several times.] Sigh… Please enjoy~
