Reincarnated Princess Wishes To Avoid Death - Chapter 161
The night with tear-soaked pillow
Mia decided to have Bel stay in the same room as her and Anne. The extra bed made the room cramped, but she couldn’t demand for an extra room after having asked special permission to enroll Bel. This also made it easier for her to talk to Bel.
“So, what happened, Bel?” She asked Bel who had been acting strange since they left Rafina’s room.
The two people were sitting next to each other in bed. Mia gently watched over the pale Bel. There was the warmth of a grandmother watching over her grandchildren. This is the moment when Mia’s grandmotherhood sprouted.
Looking at Mia, Bel mumbled.
“I remembered… something.”
“What did you remember?”
“Mr. Ludwig said that what caused the world to fall into turmoil and chaos was this student council election. He was really sad about it, and he kept on saying, ‘If only Her Highness had run in the election.’”
Upon hearing that, Mia gave a resigned sigh.
I don’t know what’s going to happen, but it seems like I won’t be able to skip it. I guess it can’t be helped…
While she sighed about giving up joining the Council, she was actually happy inside.
But… Mia was misunderstanding something. She didn’t realize the meaning of Bel’s words, and the horror they contain. That’s why Mia nodded in a calm manner.
“I see. I really wanted to decline having a position in the Student Council, but if Ludwig said that, I can’t help it. I’ll go to Rafina-sama and tell her that I will officially accept her invitation… huh?”
Mia noticed that Bel was shaking her head.
“No, Mia-neesan. That’s not what I meant.”
“What do you mean?”
“Mr. Ludwig said… If Mia was in the election and defeated Empress Prelate Rafina, history would have changed.”
“… Huh?” Mia tilted her head, unsure and confused. “What are you talking about? Bel, do you mean…?”
Mia tried to calm down and remember Bel’s words.
She did say that I have to run the election!
Now that she finally understood Bel’s words and their implications, panic started rising. This was going to be an open declaration of war! Against whom? Of course, to Rafina Orca Belluga! The trauma that was never dealt with on the previous timeline revives in Mia’s heart. Mia, moaning and holding her chest, immediately smiled at Bel.
“Ohohoho. What in the dark moons are you talking about silly girl? Do you understand what that means?”
Bel’s answer to Mia was extremely ruthless. Bel said with a straight face. “I’m not sure. It’s just what Mr. Ludwig said.”
If it was Bel’s words, Mia could have denied it. But when she heard that Ludwig said them, she had to consider it properly.
“Oh, but didn’t you doze off couple of times? You must’ve misheard it.”
“Is that so?”
“I’m sure it is.”
“Okay. If my respected Mia-neesama says so, I’m sure it was my misunderstanding.”
“Ahahaha, Bel must’ve just dozed off, huh?”
Then, the two of them laughed. Bel’s laugh was genuine, Mia was…
What am I doing?! Even if I have persuaded Bel, it won’t change anything! Mia screams inwardly.
After seeing Bel’s reaction, Mia guessed. What Bell was saying was true, and not a misunderstanding. If Ludwig really said that… then he expects that the fate of the world will change if she defeats Rafina in in the Student Council elections…
But it’s possible that Ludwig, the four-eyes, might have made a mistake. That’s right, I’m sure Ludwig must have made a mistake.
Mia took a deep breath and exhaled to calm herself down.
Suddenly, a single tear fell from her eye and rolled down her cheek.
Ah, oh, I get it now. This is it, isn’t it? It’s over. I have no choice but to take the plunge.
Mia’s intuition told her that Ludwig can’t be wrong. If that Ludwig said that if Mia didn’t win the student council election, then the world will be in trouble, then it must be so.
Understanding that she will now be stepping into hell, with no hopes of returning back to her happy life, Mia just spilled tears.
Oh, I’m dead. There’s no way out of this anymore. Uhuhuhuh… Woeful moons, why?
Mia dived onto her bed, and buried her teary face in her pillow… That was how she slept that night.
By the way, Bel was alarmed when she saw Mia suddenly crying…
Why is grandmother crying?… Oh, she must have been impressed when I told her how Mr. Ludwig took really good care of me. She must have been moved to tears with Mr. Ludwig’s loyalty.
With this logic, Bel was thoroughly convinced…
Grandmother is a sensitive person with a kind heart who understands the feelings of her subjects and can be moved by them!
As a result, her respect for Mia only grew stronger.
In this way, Mia’s future was clearly pointed out by her guiding star. Nevertheless, it was only at the eighth day that that she filed a candidacy application. During those eight days, Mia was procrastinating, hoping against hope that a solution would present itself.
On the day that her name appeared on the candidate list, Saint Noel Academy was shaken to its core.
