At a lost for words, I continued to alternate my stare between Glen’s face and the portrait that was in my hands.
Without a doubt, the portrait in my hand was the woman I loved.
And the name written on the upper right corner was『Lidiana von Vivorie』

Her name meant that she was the first daughter of the royal family Duke Vivorie.
Our country’s own Prime Minister’s daughter, and also my fiance.
…… Now, knowing my love’s true identity. I, her very own fiance, was just now was trying to cancel our engagement.

After the feeling of shock left me, Glen slowly called out to me who was currently silent.

[…… In other words, Freed’s beloved lady is actually your fiancee Princess Lidiana, is that how it is?]

Confirming, I nodded silently.
The fact that I never even met my fiancee was strangely weird.
Had to be the reason why I couldn’t recall of her.
We hadn’t met each other once, naturally I wouldn’t remember her face.

—- She was my fiancee.
When the facts that threw me into confusion became clear to me, things slowly sank in.

A cold sweat began to trickle down my spine.
…… That was close.
Just a little bit longer, I might have cancelled our engagement without even thinking about it.

I braced my chest to calm myself, before I realized I was this (hair’s length) close to cancel it.

I inhaled and exhaled, trying to get my breathing right.
If that was true, I would like to offer my prayers to God as I became overwhelmed with joy.
I never thought this kind of development would happen, my lips slackened into a smile.
With the way it was going, I thought that this kind of development was truly fated.

However, while I was thinking this, I asked myself.
I wondered why I couldn’t meet up with her faster.

Up till now, I wonder how many times we could have devised with a plan to meet up but we still hadn’t.
The Prime Minister must be at his wit’s end, trying to let us meet each other, but the me that was not following along was just stupid.
Just meeting with her once, I would definitely fall in love with her right way.
After that we would be quickly engaged and at this moment, perhaps we would be enjoying our newly married life.
The more I thought about it, the more I just wanted to swear at my idiotic past self.

With her high class actions and noble behavior, as my fiancee,  I was convinced that she was the Prime Minister’s daughter.
Typical of the Prime Minister. He arranged quite a wide range of lessons for the Future Queen she was, that was for sure.
Even as a talented person, there was no female more suitable than her to be the Princess.

Everything seemed to be a godsent for me and her.
I was deeply satisfied that there was no obstacle between us.
Unconsciously letting out a smile, Glen shyly raised a question.

[……. Hate to burst your ever growing, enjoyable imagination, but…… Freed, Was it truly Princess Lidiana whom you came across at last night’s Masquerade Ball?]
[…… Goho!! ……. Glen!! What did you just-!!]

For a second there, I completely thought I heard『delusion』not『imagination』. (TN: 『想像』means Imagination; 『妄想』means Delusion)
Glen twisted his head, laughing, then he nodded his head staring at me with teary eyes.

[I got it right, huh? Excuse me. ……It’s just thought that I didn’t understand why the likes of Princess Lidiana had participated in the Masquerade Ball…… To me, I don’t believe this is the appropriate action for a young lady who has been engaged to the Crown Prince.]

Towards Glen’s doubt, I remembered her last night.
Certainly, if you think about it carefully, she should not appear in a place like that.
If she was wandering in a place like that, who knew who could have eaten her, I could tell just by thinking about it.
So careless.

Carefully, I remembered her situation last night.

Yes, that was right, she definitely hated her engagement.
At that time, I didn’t know who was the fiancee and was pleased that she didn’t like to marry him, that was why……

My eyebrows scrunched up as I clearly understood.
I whispered the words, through my mouth.

[…… She does not want to marry me …… ]

With surprise written all over his face, Glen said.

[Is that so? Even though her father, the Prime Minister is super eager about it…… ?]
[Yup. It was he who persistently recommended his daughter…… but, I get it-]

I remembered her yesterday’s behavior and speech, suddenly an unpleasant premonition crossed my heart.

[Glen, you said that she mostly does not participate in any evening parties.]
[That’s right. For that reason I thought that it was really weird. Even for an usual evening party, she would rarely participate, so why would the phantom princess appear at an evening party, such as the likes of yesterday’s Masquerade Ball……]

If I think about it, I remember she was obviously impatient to throw away her virginity.
I saw that she showed a rather relieved expression when I penetrated her.

[…… Is it because she doesn’t want to get married to royalty?]
Saying the words out loud, it sounded all the more credible.

[Eh?]

Glen’s jaw dropped.

[If I am not mistaken, you cannot be the crown princess when you are not a virgin. Of course, I don’t believe the Prime Minister will really wouldn’t forgive her either …… To that extent, she would do anything to avoid the marriage with me?]
[No way…… No matter how much– …… No, but that would explain everything then. I didn’t think that phantom princess who doesn’t really attend to evening parties, especially the likes of the Masquerade Ball would appear with that goal in mind.]

Definitely, I hesitatingly agreed to Glen while being disheartened as I nodded my head in return.
Naturally, I let out a sigh.

[……When it comes to achieving her goals, certainly she’s good at it……]
[Well done indeed, she is no longer a virgin anymore…… However, Freed you said you granted her the『King’s Flower』]
[Aah.]

At that moment, I realized that I just wanted to praise myself I unhesitatingly gave her that.
Thanks to that, she will now be mine.

[If only at this time, I knew her face…… I wouldn’t be going around in circles up till now. At any rate, I knew I couldn’t allow her to run away.]

For that reason, I gave the King’s Flower. I happily said as Glen nodded.

[The 『King’s Flower』is the proof of the Crown Princess. However, as a matter of fact for your fiancee, although she was in that kind of place, you made quite a big decision.]
[No matter what, I thought I would not let her go. Was there any better way to tie her down to me?]

[…… That is true. Still, wouldn’t be the princess get angry at you since she was not aware that she had been made into the Crown Princess?]
[My fiancee hasn’t realized, in that case, I’m going to keep quiet until she realizes it. And besides, at the beginning she was the one who tried to run away. …… If she was a good child and waited until our engagement meeting, I wouldn’t have needed to resort to such method. Then I would have obediently waited for our first night] (T/N: Bridal night)

Probably, I added. To be honest, I didn’t feel like I could wait for her, myself.

As a matter of fact, if it was not for yesterday night, I would have immediately left that place. After which, I would have gone back to castle to involuntarily accept the engagement given to me.
On the other hand, if I were to see her during our engagement meeting, I would absolutely fall in love with her. If that happened, then our engagement would positively proceed as planned. In the end, in the near future, she would be my crown princess.
In other words, either way the results wouldn’t have changed.
This time, it seemed we only skipped a few steps.

It was better this way. Above all, I was so glad I didn’t miss yesterday’s masquerade ball.
Supposing, I wasn’t there in that situation, I shivered at that thought.
If some other man held her, everything would be finished.
Before I knew it, to think that I would lose her forever, only terrified me.

[Well then, what is your next plan?]
[Nn?]

Suddenly, Glen asked me on what were my next plans with his questioning gaze.

[I’m talking about Princess Lidina. At last, we finally discovered her true identity, after this, what are you going to do?]
[Because I only talked with her with my mask on. She probably doesn’t know me yet, so at least a greeting would be… Wait, huh?]

Incidentally, I remembered a problem.

She didn’t know that she slept with me.
Probably, she didn’t even want to know my identity.
The reason was because, her only purpose was to lose her virginity.
If so, with her wish that came true, what would be her next move?

By guessing her next move, I clicked my tongue.

[…… This is bad. Glen, immediately arrange a meeting with me and the Prime Minister!]
[With the Prime Minister?]

Glen looked at me with a puzzled face.

[Yes, with the Prime Minister. At this rate, through her father, she will ask for me to break up the engagement.]
[What did you just say!?]

Glen exclaimed as I quickly explained.

[Her reason for breaking the engagement is that she is no longer a virgin. In any case, for that sake, she went as far as going to this kind of place…… Well, If I do say so myself, I think that there is definitely no more effective way than that.]

I expressed my thoughts on the matter with complicated feelings, as Glen obviously became confused.

[Even if you gave the 『King’s Flower』to your fiancee, yourself? Please stop with the nasty jokes. As long as the 『King’s Flower』is in her body, no one is going to listen to that kind of talk.]
[She doesn’t know that.]

I calmly pointed out, as the color of Glen’s face changed.

[…… I think it would be a little bit troublesome but I understand. I will quickly get the approval of the Prime Minister.]

Understanding what I was trying to say, Glen turned on his heel and hurriedly left the office.
I remained in the office, as I stared at the portrait I had in my hand.

Just in case, even if she did convince the Prime Minister to break up the engagement, of course, the meeting would not go through.
If it was not convincing enough, then I would show them evidence that her partner was me.
But, it didn’t necessarily bother me.
In order not to raise any questions, everything should be settled skillfully well.

So, more than anything else, I had to see her.
By revealing my true identity to her, I would make her understand the current situation we were in.
If she understood that she was just fighting a meaningless battle, I expected she would probably not do anything further than that.
The main point was that I had already given her the 『King’s Flower, and whatever she did the position of the crown princess couldn’t be changed.

…… However, I couldn’t understand.
For what reason was she trying to refuse the marriage with me.
I didn’t want to think that way but perhaps there was some another man she was fond of.

But from now on she wouldn’t be able to go back nor did she have any plan to do so.
Whether she cried or shouted, at the end, I didn’t have the slightest intention to let her go.
I ignored the small ache that appeared inside me, as I faced her murmuring,

[I’m sorry, but I can’t let you run away anymore.]

I was going to spare no effort to make her love me, but even if that was no good, my love for her would remain.
After this, I swore that in this lifetime, I would only love her.
So I decided, as I kissed on her portrait.


Thank you very much.

  1. Freed’s a bit of a yandere.
    Not a dark yandere, but an understandable yandere. lol
    For those who don’t get it, dark yandere ie. yuno gasai from Future Diary.
    Understandable yandere is someone not super crazy evil and you can understand why they love the person so much.
    Lol.
    THANKS FOR THE CHAPTER ICHIYA-SAMA!!!
    I LOVE THIS !! I check everyday just to be sure a chapters out!!

    • ( ๑ ❛ ڡ ❛ ๑ ) Freed to me, is becoming a love sick puppy that you could easily play around using Lidi’s name.

      • Putting it in a scenario ( ๑ ❛ ڡ ❛ ๑ )

        If freed refuses to do his work, Glen would probably say “Freed, Lidi-himesama is all alone waiting for you, you know? If you don’t finish your work, who knows when she’s just get up and leave, find another —” Freed goes finishes his work then flies off to poor escaping Lidi who has no clue that she was used.

        If Freed complains about being seperated, Glen would say “I probably shouldn’t say this but Lidi-himesama said she would be so happy and proud that she’ll just jump into your arms and kiss you and—-” Freed shuts up and does the job 2x the speed. While Lidi on the hand prays he doesn’t come back.

        Something like that.

      • Also, how do you feel about them calling “it”, “King’s Flower”? LOL.
        I kinda of laugh every time its mentioned lol.
        Like wow, lol,
        kings, pfft…
        pffft
        HAHAHAH
        flower.
        lol like whats up with that.
        What do they have going on down there

  2. Thank you so much for the chapter!!!
    Phew…it was a close one, Freed!
    Anyway, Lidi can’t run away from him anymore~~ lol
    Now back to sit and wait patiently for the next chapter

  3. |  THANKS FOR THE CHAPTER!!!
    | ̄””‘、
    |ω` |
    ⊂  ;゙ yan yan yan~ yandere 
    |   / I kinda like yandere cause they not prone NTR or cheating
    |U”” Lol guess chapter 18 gonna be funny due to the preview

  4. Thanks you so much for this chapter !!!
    Finally he knows who is his princess ❤ (but seriously what cute and dangerous yandere he is….)

  5. I went ahead and bought the novels up to V5, and while it takes me forever trying to figure out what’s going on (old-fashioned runes to english dictionary as I don’t know Japanese), those images. Whew. Extremely toasty. I’m probably going to just try and flatten them without taking them apart to get a fairly flat image when scanning. And just probably leave it to a photoshop pro to flatten and clean the images (if there’s anyone interested).

    Thanks for the chapter, I’m very much looking forward to proper translation of the chapters. Until then, I’ll just have to make do with images and some dialogue around the image.

    Aside from that, is there a means of using spoiler tags in the comments? Not really going to spoil anything big, considering it’s on the cover image of the later volumes as a flat out tell.

    • //pops party poppers for you//
      I thank you for showing support for the novel!! Bless your kind soul.

      The fact that you have already said that the pics are “extremely toasty” is enough spoiler to me. Bless my soul. Donate me blood packs please. Just let the others contact you I suppose… Others may not want any spoilers ( ՞ ڡ ՞ ) tee hee.

      • I’ll get into contact with you once I have enough time to get around to actually doing some scanning (hopefully this weekend).

        Do you have an idea of a recommended scan quality setting I can try for?

      • Okay for this week-end 😉
        Gosh..for scanning I’m not so good at it but according my researches, a good scanning for a book with images must be setted in black-and-white with 600 dpi for highest conventional resolution ?? (the lowest acceptable resolution is 200 dpi)
        Or i recommand you this video :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAcGZQbvreI
        I expected that it can help you in some way

      • Thank you! (^་།^) there goes another illustration of a hottie!

        To everyone: please thank this person for these wonderful illustrations~

      • Sorry to be so late to answer ^^
        In any case, I will do my best to clean and bright these images!
        Thanks you for your collaboration Lewd Anon!
        It’s soon the week-end so I think I will be finish it before the begin of the next week

    • I’ve actually already sent all the pics for volume one to this translator, they probably forgot to attach it to this chapter. 🙂 No need to risk destroying your bunko 🙂 I have the eBook so it was digital to begin with. 🙂

  6. Thanks for the update

    I’m not sure what is this 『King’s Flower』, but if I was in this Lidi’s position, I’ll will keep refusing, till finally prince give up, or escape to other country

  7. THANK U FOR THE UPDATE ICHIYA-SAMA!!! Anyway i wonder if the kings flower even worked since she used birth control and all?? Lets see what happens

  8. Thank you for the update!
    Freed and Lidi are so cute together, so excited for the next chapter w/ that preview lol

  9. 「彼女とは仮面越しにしか話していないからね。まだ私の事も知らないだろうし、挨拶位は……と、ん?」

    “Because I only talked with her with my mask on. She probably doesn’t know me yet, so at least a greeting would be… Wait, huh?”

    仮面越しに = lit. “through/over the mask”

    挨拶位 aisatsu kurai = at least a greeting, as much as a greeting etc.
