Otome Game no Heroine de Saikyou Survival [WN] - Chapter 128.1
Promise of a Dance
“…I still can’t see it, the future is not clear.”
Within the grounds of the Royal Sorcery Academy, which was said to be as large as the royal capital, there were mansions for royalty, and similarly, senior noble families were allowed to have their own mansions within the academy, depending on the amount of their donations.
In one of these mansions, the residence of Count Dandol, Clara, the Crown Prince’s first fiancée, was using the [Gift] given to her by the spirit of the dungeon to predict the future of herself and Crown Prince Ervan, rather than the future of this country.
Clara’s “gift” was “foresight”, and in this world that closely resembled the Otome Game “Love on Silver Wings”, the information currently available and Clara’s own game strategy as a reincarnated player were combined and calculated in her brain to “foresee” a highly probable future while placing a heavy burden on her brain.
But it is not a definite future. In this real world, which was only similar to the game, the future gradually changed depending on the actions of the people who were alive, even if the game was progressing as described in the story.
Even Clara, who foresees the future based on the information she obtained and was well aware of the upcoming game events, could not see a “happy future” in her eyes.
This was because there were three uncertainties that were different from the original Otome Game.
One was Alicia, the “Heroine” of the Otome Game.
The path she followed was almost the same as the one that Clara knew about the Heroine, although there were some timing errors. However, Clara felt uncomfortable with Alicia and her behavior because it felt like she knew that she was a “Heroine”.
Her appearance was different from the Heroine of the game that Clara knew. Her hair was not peach-colored, which was the characteristic of the Heroine, nor were her looks.
Her reddish dark blonde hair would not look out of place among the reddish hair of the Melrose family, but from the perspective of Clara, who knew the game, it was hard to believe that she was the Heroine of the game.
However, her appearance was so pretty that she could be described as the Heroine, and she seemed as if she knew her attraction to the opposite sex and acted in such a way as to bring it to the forefront, which made Clara feel uncomfortable with the Heroine’s behavior.
Her charm was so strong that even though it was still early in the game, she attracted Ervan, the Crown Prince, by cutting into the darkness that the target was harboring inside him. She had heard that the king’s brother Amol and Nathaniel, grandson of the head of the temple of the Holy Church in the royal capital, were seen frequenting her place.
The Heroine’s charms were frightening. However, Clara also felt uncomfortable with the fact that the target of the attack should have been limited to one person, but instead there were several.
She suspected that she might be a reincarnation from the earth, like herself, but her presence was made even more eerie by the fact that her mind was no different from that of a mere child, and she seemed to be simply doing as she wished.
The second was Carla Lester, the other “villainess”.
The most evil villainess who stood in the way of the Heroine at the end of every route she took.
She hated the country that ruined her life and even invited the demons into the country to destroy it. The incident where she was intercepted by the Heroine just before the civil war was the biggest event in the Otome Game during the Crown Prince Ervan’s attack, and it was also the event where the Heroine started to have the “Light Attribute Awakening”. If the Heroine failed to “awaken the light attribute”, the game would be over on the spot, and the difficulty level would be extremely high.
However, in retrospect, Carla’s behavior was supposed to be focused on the “Heroine” from the start.
Throughout the event, there seemed to be a connection between Carla and Alicia, and she seemed to be enjoying the fight with the “Heroine”, while seriously trying to kill Alicia when she interfered with her plans.
But now Carla was something different from the Carla of the game.
In the game, she did not have the [Gift] of the Spirit.
She in the game was not that concerned with her strength.
Now, Carla’s strength was far beyond that of the game. And the most disconcerting thing was that Carla showed not even a shred of interest in the current Alicia.
Therefore, Carla, who had such a strong presence in the game, no longer moved the same way in the games as if she had abandoned her role as the villainess.
And finally…the third uncertain element, Aria, the princess’s bodyguard.
A vagrant girl picked up by an adventurer. She has the same peach blonde hair as the Heroine of the game, and her dignified beauty changed not only the target, but even the villainous princess Elena, an unidentified girl with a strange atmosphere.
But she was not the “Heroine”, she could not have been the Heroine.
Her nature was harsh and ruthless. She never backed down from a challenge against a superior demon, and her spirit of killing her enemies without mercy and her nickname “Ash Crowned Princess” frightened even the secret agents of the Dandol family, who were well acquainted with the underworld.
But perhaps the most terrifying thing about her, was her “influence”.
Her solitary way of life changed even the way of life of the princess, the one who sympathized with Elena, who was fighting alone, and tried to live as a shadow of the Crown Prince to protect this country.
The reason why the villainess Carla was not interested in the “Heroine” was because she was more interested in Aria than in the Heroine. It would not be an exaggeration to say that Carla was now living purely to fight against Aria, even going beyond the framework of being a villainess.
Aria’s influence was also the reason why Rockwell of the Dandol family and Mikhail of the Melrose family, who were her targets, were trying to distance themselves from the current Heroine.
She is not a “Heroine”, she cannot be a Heroine, she repeated.
But her “influence” to change even a person’s way of life reminded Clara of the “Heroine” and made her wary of Aria.
Ervan gently called out to Clara, who was holed up in her room, trying to predict the future as her life expectancy dwindled away.
Ervan was concerned about Clara, who had become the first fiancée and had begun to show signs of weakness, and visited her regularly to show his face. However, he was only concerned for her as her “fiancée” because of his belief that as the future queen, she could predict the future of the kingdom, and not because of his love for her.
“Ervan-sama…stay away from that Alicia girl. She’s not a very nice person!”
“…I hear that she certainly has been meeting with my Uncle and others who are close to her, but that’s because she’s trying to fit into the aristocratic society in her own way. Other young ladies do the same. It’s not like you to speak ill of her just because of that…”
What Ervan was saying sounded like a good argument, but the reason he involuntarily removed his gaze from Clara’s eyes, which clung to him as if to appeal, was probably because he had a guilty conscience himself.
Sensing this with a woman’s intuition, Clara backed away slightly from Ervan’s chest.
(I won’t forgive you….)
Clara could not forgive Ervan for trying to betray her while being kind to her, the Heroine who tried to take him away from her, Elena and Carla who tried to find a different way of life from the game and leave her, Clara was unable to forgive all of them.
Now, the Heroine had not yet awakened to her light attribute. If so, Clara decided to get rid of the obstacles, even if she had to draw the demons into her life.
(Then I’ll be the real villainess!)
