T/N: Urghh though I kind of promised to finish up with Konyaku haki by this month but it might not be possible since they are still lots of editing need to be done ( the last few chapters kind of difficult for me to translate so I need to double check everything.) and I also want to do a mass release for it since the chapter kind of clumped together(??) therefore, if possible need to be read on one go.
Anyway, to tied you all up, I will be posting 2 chapters of Akuyaku Reijo ttenani. Thank you very much to Nora for her great work in editing my translation (a new version of chapter 1 – 3 was already updated.)
Chapter 4: Special training
“Hime-sama, your muscle have developed nicely.”
“Thank you very much, Kagerou-san!”
“Ageha’s lesson in martial arts and Higurashi’ swordsmanship lessons should be praised for this fantastic result”
The time spent learning Genjitsu with Kagerou-san has always been exciting.
Countless butterflies with stained-glass like wings were fluttering around us.
Genjutsu is similar to illusion magic.
As of now, Kagerou-san has only taught me how to create this type of beautiful illusion.
But in actuality, I am capable of applying my previous life’s knowledge to this type of magic.
Apart from this type of beautiful illusion, I can also create illusion based of the anime and horror movies I had watched in my previous life.
Of course this is a secret from Kagerou-san.
Ageha-san has also taught me various forms of martial arts.
I learned how to precisely attack the vital points of a target and now the curriculum is focusing on the counter moves needed after being attacked by a man.
Higurashi-san on the other hand is teaching me the art of swordsmanship.
From daggers to long swords, I am taught how to handle various blades. Moreover I am learning how to find and manipulate the weak points of enemies……even assassination techniques are included in his lesson. Higurashi-san did admit that if Kagerou were to find out about the assassination lessons then his head might as well fly off from his neck.
Despite Higurashi-san saying that in a light-hearted manner, his serious eyes were so scary that my heart could not help but tightened.
I have also been keeping the training a secret from the people in the mansion.
After dinner, I’d spend one hour reading picture books to Yard followed by an hour training before finally taking my bath.
Because of this, people had assumed that I’m the type who love to dawdle in bath……
I think I’m the embodiment of a ‘cheat’ in this world.
My magic powers are overwhelming, however, I believe my previous life’s memories play a big part in that.
It’s actually easier to move my current small body than my last one.
I am able to move it the way I want to.
The body of a 40 years old…even if it’s sad for me to say, I did not feel like moving it at all.
Due to my arduous training, I fall asleep as soon as my body hits the bed. However if I were to say if anything had changed, it just that, occasionally when I wake up in the middle of the night, I will discover that Yard is asleep beside me.
“You cannot just randomly go inside a lady’s room!!”
“I had a scary dream… I am sorry.”
When Yard was being scolded by big brother, he looked so pitiful that I pleaded for his case against my better judgement.
“Oni-sama, Yard is still a small child.”
“If I were to have a scary dream and wanted to sleep with big brother, would you push me out of the bed?”
“Well, that is…Yes, but…”
“Yard, if you were really terrified that time, we can’t do anything about it; nevertheless unless you become strong you won’t be able to protect anything. I am okay if you want to come and sleep with me when you have a scary dream, but I really wish, for you to be a strong boy. Do you understand?”
Yard reluctantly agreed.
He is so cute~.
I tightly hugged Yard.
“I love Yard so much! So you must grow up to be a wonderful man.”
Yard hugged me back in embarrassment.
“ Cardy you have been spoiling Yard too much!”
“Because Oni-sama had always been spoiling me that now I am returning the same favor towards Yard. I am able to become someone who is gentle because Oni-sama was towards me!”
My big brother smiled bitterly at this.
Since big brother is weak against me, this much was still okay.
“Our princess is extremely talented in playing with the two brothers’ moods.
I was surprised from the sudden voice.
Looking over my shoulder, I saw my father, the Prime Minister, Grammy Brauz.
My blood turned cold.
How long has he been here?
I could not sense him at all.
“Could you also put your father in a good mood?”
I separated myself from Yard and began to cling on my father’s arm.
This person, you can’t really afford to have him as an enemy.
My father lifted me up as I wrapped my arms around his neck.
“Have you been a good girl?”
“Did you think that I have done something bad?’
“Hahaha! Cardinal can’t do anything bad! I love you my princess.”
What’s with all the questions, Otou-sama?!
My father is a handsome man with the same silver hair as big brother though it reached down his back; he also had the similar light emerald green eyes as my big brother and Yard.
His appearance makes him seems too young to be the father of three children.
By the way, our mother had passed away after she gave birth to Yard.
A~ was this the reason why I could not get along with Yard?
Maybe previously I have been resenting Yard for snatching my mother away from me.
I inherited my dark emerald green eyes from my mother.
My big brother is a spitting image of father.
Yard’s hair color is similar to mother’s, however his eyes are like father’s. As for me, my deep green eyes are from mother while my glossy red hair is a combination of mother and father’s hair color.
Back to the story, what kind of person is my father?
At that time, I thought that I should asked Kagerou-san about it later.
