I’ll Become a Villainess That Will Go Down in History - Chapter 53
T/L: Righteous Flower of Evil [carnationscans.wordpress.com]
“Hey, Alicia. What do you think about appearing in our production as a guest performer?”
What did you just say? You want me to act as a guest performer? Albert-Oniisama, what the heck are you thinking!?
“Oh yeah! That’s a great idea!”
Gayle-Sama? Please don’t just agree with that ridiculous suggestion! I’m not a member of the student council!
“I have no desire to do so,” I say enunciating each syllable clearly.
“Why not?” Albert-Oniisama asks, scrutinizing my face.
“First of all, I’m not even a student at the magic academy.”
“Just let us deal with that.”
No, that’s okay. There’s really no need…..
“It’s a great opportunity! You should definitely participate!” Liz-san says smiling brilliantly at me.
“I said no.”
The tension in the room. It’s rising. But Liz-san doesn’t even bat an eye. Her smile stays in place and shows no signs of displeasure.
She’s just so difficult to deal with for some reason. I suppose it’s probably because we operate on completely different wavelengths.
“It’ll definitely be fun~? I’m sure you’ll make some great memories.”
“Liz-san, won’t you please refrain from arbitrarily forcing your own sense of values onto me?”
And with these few words, the mood changes completely. A look of embarrassment floats across Liz-san’s face.
Great! She finally gets it! This is the face that I’ve been striving for!
I didn’t manage it during our last encounter, but I’ve finally succeeded! This is my revenge for her being so thickheaded all the time.
“I’m sorry. That wasn’t my intention,” Liz-san amends, apologizing to me immediately.
Huh? I was expecting a much more intense battle of words to play out. She gave in so easily.
“Alicia, your words were also rather harsh,” Albert-Oniisama reprimands looking a bit mad at me.
……I did it!! I finally managed to anger Albert-Oniisama.
“I was merely expressing my honest opinion.”
“Saying something like that will hurt the other person’s feelings.”
Yep. I can’t deny that. But what’s wrong with speaking the truth?
“Let’s just move on for now, shall we? Ali-chan was probably just feeling uncomfortable because we put her on the spot,” Curtis-Sama lightly interjects, his voice resounding in that awkward silence.
His reasonable tone and words start to calm down the turbulent atmosphere a bit. But they don’t work to calm my heart. Somehow, I still feel slightly disturbed.
Their reactions really are different to when I was 7 years old. When you’re young, selfish and willful words are easily forgiven. But once you grow up, I guess that sort of self-indulgence is no longer tolerable.
It was the same in my past life as well. I saw these reactions a lot when I acted selfishly after becoming an adult. But to think that I would be experiencing this now when I’m still only ten… I guess members of the nobility really are held to a much higher set of standards and expectations.
But the Alicia from the game must have never learned that lesson. Even though she grew taller and older, her personality and temperament never matured and thus she was viewed as a villain.
So doesn’t that mean that I’m perfect just as I am? I just need to grow up and continue to act as I do, and I should safely succeed in my role as the villainess.
I guess there’s nothing to worry about then! I’ll be fine as long as I just continue to live honestly as I have been so far!
“Ali, go visit the town with Liz. Get to know each other better so you two can learn how to get along,” instructs Albert-Oniisama.
T/N: Ohhh! Here it is!! Albert is taking Liz’s side! (Or is he?) What do you guys think?? When the rift gets bigger between the heroine and our precious villainess, whose side will he take?
Also, I’m getting Neverland vibes from this chapter lol. I feel like Alicia just made a resolution to never grow up hahaha
