I’m Not Even an Otome Game Mob Character - Chapter 0
Ah, this is an Otome Game.
I couldn’t help but notice.
I noticed, but I couldn’t do anything.
For now I’ll catch my breath.
“Hey, are you listening!?”
“Yeah, I’m listening.”
I sipped some black tea making a zuzo- sound when my attention was called by a girl two years younger than me.
My reply was half true and half false. After all, she’s told me enough.
“And then Roy-sama-”
“Really? That’s amazing.”
“I haven’t said anything yet! You really aren’t listening are you!”
Oh no, looks like my interjection was too early.
She switched to lecturing mode, but in the end she just told me to learn from Roy-sama and shifted back to bragging about Roy-sama. I ignored her while making sure to not get my timing wrong this time.
The one who made me realize that the world I was in was an Otome Game was this 『Roy-sama.』 I kinda thought that I’d heard his name and seen his appearance and position before. Well, I’ve only heard of his appearance though. I haven’t been able to meet him since I’m an ordinary person.
After hearing his name so much despite not being interested whatsoever to the extent that my ears got clogged, I eventually realized that he was an Otome Game capture target.
Roy ・ Leonard ・ Von ・ Rosenhein, the first prince of Arvento and a capture target of Your Star. If I recall correctly he was called the main hero or something like that.
Your Star is just an abbreviation. The full title was Only Your something something. I can’t remember. To start with it’s rare enough for me to have known about an Otome Game despite being a guy.
(TN: The revealed part of the title is Kimi Dake No. The translation changes depending on what comes next)
The reason I knew about it was simple. It’s because I was made to help my little sister clear it. Each capture target had different mini-games and it seemed that the so-called flags would change based on the accumulation of those. I did the parts my little sister was bad at.
Now, I have no little sister. I’m an only child. I only had a little sister in the previous life.
But I don’t get it.
I look at the girl before me. The source of information I don’t need about Roy-sama. The Villainess introduced as the rival for Roy-sama’s route, Lydia Von Ernst. She was Roy-sama’s fiancee in the game, but it looks like she’s currently only a candidate for engagement. From my perspective she seems like a likely candidate so I also feel like I could call her engaged already.
This place is a section of the huge garden in her home. I, her partner for tea, am the son of the Ernst family’s exclusive gardener. I’m in a gardening apprenticeship.
I’d never even heard of the rival’s gardeners even while I was helping my little sister clear the game or when my little sister was talking. So of course the gardening apprentice never showed up. It wasn’t even on the level of being brought up as a topic.
That’s right, I’m not even a mob character.
As far as the situation goes it seems that I had reincarnated. There were no harmful side-effects.
Now, depending on the route, the vllainess I’m having tea with could have her heart broken, but since she’d fight fair and square, she won’t fall into ruin or lose her life.
Which meant that since my employers, the Ernst Dukedom, wouldn’t suffer any damage, their gardeners, my family and I, would be safe.
Isn’t it meaningless for me to have memories of my previous life?
I constantly tilted my head in confusion after understanding my situation, but I stopped thinking when my teacup got empty. I see, I don’t get it. It can’t be helped even if I keep worrying about this.
For now, I’ll raise my teacup and say something to the girl before my eyes.
“If it’s that much please get it by yourself.”
She scolded me like my mom from my past life.
Though I’m making her personal maid do things, I can’t rebuke her because of the difference in social status. Is there such a thing as lese majesty in this country? If there is I’m in trouble. Why we came to have this sort of exchange is still a mystery.
Even though our first impressions were the worst.
Our first impressions of each other were definitely the worst when we met a year ago.
I don’t know if it’ll affect the Otome Game, but that meeting changed my life just a little bit.
