The Villain Reincarnator Wants to Get Married: Chapter 10

After safely reaching the capital, we went to the Yellow Dragon Castle to greet the emperor, then headed straight to the villa. The people living in the capital, seeing the grand procession of the guard, looked at us with pure curiosity, but there was no atmosphere of celebrating the master of the Hua Zhong Yuan territory.

“Is it not worth celebrating the marriage of a child like me?”

Normally, the marriage of a lord or a member of the royal family would be celebrated by everyone in the territory, but it seems the emperor has no such intention. When we entered the Yellow Dragon Castle, he did offer me words of congratulations, but he probably has no intention of celebrating his daughter, Xue Na. In fact, do the residents of the capital even know that the princess is getting married?

“…What an infuriating story.”

We have to make our marriage a grand event. The royal family probably has no intention of doing anything, so we have to celebrate grandly on our side. With that in mind, we’ll have to put more effort into managing the territory.

As we arrived at the villa thinking about this, the servants who were in charge of managing the mansion and taking care of Xue Na greeted us.

“We’ve been waiting for you, Mr. Kunihisa. All the preparations for the princess’s departure are complete on our end.”

“Understood. There were no problems during your stay, right?”

“Yes. Lady Xue Na has been very kind to us, even though we are of lower status… We are all looking forward to your marriage.”

“Ah… me too.”

It seems she got along well with the servants I sent. It was a good decision to choose them for their character, not just their abilities.

“…No, did Xue Na’s personality also have an effect? In the original story, she wasn’t disliked because of her personality.”

“For now, I want to see Princess Xue Na. Where is she now?”

“She is waiting in the room facing the garden, which you used as your private room.”

Hearing this, I ordered the soldiers to continue preparing, got permission from Xue Na through a servant to go see her, and headed to her room.

Honestly, my heart is pounding like a child before a field trip, thinking about seeing Xue Na for the first time in two months. There wasn’t a day when I didn’t think about Xue Na after returning to the territory, and as the day approached, my sleep became lighter.

The last time I saw her, she was dressed so shabbily that she didn’t look like a princess, but since then, I’ve changed her living environment and sent her many kimonos and accessories. I can’t help but wonder how much she has changed.

“I want to replenish Xue Na right now…!”

For the first time, I realized how painful it is not to be able to see someone specific.

As I walked down the corridor, trying to control my excitement, I saw Xue Na under a cherry tree planted in the garden.

“Ah… Mr. Hua Zhong Yuan. It’s been a while.”

Xue Na, who noticed my presence, greeted me with a voice that sounded like a rolling bell, her cheeks slightly red. The girl with bright brown hair and freckles standing behind her is probably Miyako Tayama. I met a character from the original story for the first time, but I couldn’t take in that fact at all.

“…You’re beautiful.”

“Eh!?”

When I muttered that, Xue Na’s face turned red all at once, but I think that’s inevitable. Xue Na, dressed up properly, was so beautiful that I couldn’t help but blurt out my true feelings.

I had sent a top-notch tailor to Xue Na, so I knew she would be wearing a kimono that suited her… but the reality far exceeded my poor imagination.

“She’s too cute…! I can hear the otaku inside me screaming at full strength…!”

The kimono, which was not too flashy but had a refined color and floral pattern, combined with a long haori and hakama, was a design close to Taisho Roman and suited Xue Na perfectly. Her hair, which had been properly combed and had become glossy, was as beautiful as a white cherry blossom, and she was a perfect beauty with no complaints.

“I’m the only one who can see Xue Na in clothes that no ‘Doki Koi’ player in my previous life has ever seen…!”

I feel a dangerous sense of superiority… If I could contact my otaku friends in my previous life, I would love to brag about it.

Even when she was dressed shabbily, she was exceptionally cute, but now that she’s dressed up properly, Xue Na is so lovely, with the falling cherry blossoms adding to the effect, that she doesn’t seem human.

To be honest, if no one was here, I think I would have shouted out “Buhiiiiii!” or “Moe!”

“I’m sorry for being late, Your Highness. This is Hua Zhong Yuan Kunihisa, I’ve come to pick you up. Was there anything inconvenient about your life in the mansion?”

“Yes, everyone was very kind to me. I would like to thank Mr. Hua Zhong Yuan again.”

“That’s good to hear. Your kimono suits you very well. Honestly, I regret not coming to pick you up sooner because you’re so beautiful.”

“Ah, ah… Mr. Hua Zhong Yuan…”

 

“When courting a woman, it’s important to start by praising her out loud. I’ve tried this approach, which I learned from a survey of the maids and wives of retainers, and female merchants in the Gluttonous Castle, and it seems to be working quite well.

When I look straight into her eyes and compliment her, Yuki-na blushes and looks away shyly. Seeing her like this really gets my heart racing.

‘Honestly, you’re so lovely it’s almost heart-stopping. Any beauty who sees you now would surely feel ashamed,’ I tell her.

‘Lord Kashiue… Please, that’s enough!’ Yuki-na interrupts, her face so red it looks like it might start steaming. I decide to stop there, not wanting to push her too far.

At that moment, I catch the eye of Miyako, who has been watching our exchange with sparkling eyes from a distance. Today is the first time we’ve met, and we haven’t spoken a word to each other… yet somehow, just by meeting her gaze, I feel like we’ve had a conversation. It goes something like this:

‘Isn’t the princess just the cutest?’

‘Right? You get it!’

It seems like Miyako and I are going to get along just fine. I feel like I’ve found a kindred spirit.

‘We have some time before we need to leave. Shall we chat?’ I suggest.

‘Yes, that sounds good. Miyako, could you prepare some tea?’ Yuki-na asks.

‘Of course,’ Miyako replies.

After Miyako brings us some green tea, Yuki-na and I sit down on cushions on the tatami mat, facing each other. As I’m wondering what to talk about, Yuki-na bows her head to me.

‘I want to express my gratitude to you, Lord Kashiue. Thank you for treating me so kindly since our engagement was decided.’

‘I don’t need thanks for that. You’re my fiancée, it’s only natural that I treat you well.’

‘You might think so, but… I’m not used to living like a noble,’ Yuki-na admits with a wry smile.

I laugh and agree, ‘I suppose that’s true.’ She’s been forced to live a simple life since she was born. Now that we’re engaged, I can’t leave her in the Yellow Dragon Castle. I’ve brought her to my villa, but she seems to be struggling with the change in lifestyle. Well, she’ll have to get used to being waited on by many people once we’re married. If it’s still a problem, we can make adjustments.

‘And it’s not just me. You’re also treating Miyako very well in the Kashiue household,’ Yuki-na adds.

I had also investigated Miyako when I decided to marry Yuki-na. She comes from a very ordinary family. Her father died young, her mother is weak, and she has many younger siblings, so they’re quite poor. That’s why Miyako has been working as a servant in the castle since she was a child.

(When I saw how much she was earning, I realized she must be living quite frugally. Considering the royal family’s financial situation, she was being paid very little.)”

 

So, accompanying Yuki-na to the territory, I decided to hire Miyako as the exclusive maid for the next lady of the Kachuuin family and take in her entire family as well.

As a wealthy noble family, the Kachuuin family would offer a much higher salary than what they would receive working for the penniless royal family, and more importantly, it would serve as a countermeasure against the final boss.

Since Yuki-na would eventually inherit the dragon seal, it was clear that the final boss would target Miyako and her family. Therefore, it was more convenient to have them live close to me, where I could protect them more easily.

“You often wrote about her in your letters. If you care about her so much, it’s only natural that I, as your fiancée, would be considerate of her as well. She’s important to you, isn’t she?”

“Yes, she’s my one and only best friend.”

Seeing Yuki-na smile as she said that, I couldn’t help but feel a little envious of Miyako, who had tactfully left the room. After all, she was the only one Yuki-na cared for so deeply at the moment.

Well, what existed between the two of them was a heartwarming friendship, not romantic love between a man and a woman. It was a happy thing that Yuki-na had a friend, and as a man, it was enough for me to be the only special existence in her life. There was no need to be jealous.

“Princess Yuki-na…”

“Lord Kuni-hisa! There’s an emergency!”

Just as I was about to speak, a guard rushed in, interrupting our conversation.

“Enough with the noise! What’s going on?”

“Well, the next head of the Suzuki family has suddenly come to visit and demands to see Lord Kuni-hisa.”

“What? The next head of the Suzuki family?”

The Suzuki family was a prestigious family with a history as long as the Kachuuin family, and their next head was none other than the heroine of the original story, Suzuki Reira. I wondered what business she had with me, but I quickly realized the reason and let out a deep sigh.

“I apologize, Your Highness. I’m very reluctant to leave, but please allow me to step out for a moment.”

“No, please don’t worry about it.”

After excusing myself to Yuki-na, I headed to the front gate where Reira was waiting.

“Bring Kachuuin Kuni-hisa out right now! Who do you think I am!?”

Even from a distance, her shrill voice reached my ears. Despite being annoyed by it, I decided to deal with Reira as the next head of the family.

“Coming here without any notice and causing a commotion in front of my residence… What do you want?”

“Hmph! You must be Kachuuin Kuni-hisa! Duel with me right now!”

Suzuki Reira, the next head of the Suzuki family with her golden ringlet hairstyle that seemed to break the world of Japanese fantasy, demanded a duel as soon as she saw my face.

“Is this because I rejected the marriage proposal from the Suzuki family?”

To tell the truth, as soon as my engagement with Yuki-na was decided and I returned to my territory, I received a marriage proposal from the Suzuki family. The other party was Reira’s younger sister, and it was a blatant political marriage. However, since my engagement with Yuki-na had already been decided, I sent a letter of refusal, which apparently didn’t sit well with Reira.

“Of course! It’s outrageous that you rejected the marriage proposal in the first place, but the reason you gave was that you prioritized your engagement with the cursed princess! That’s nothing but an insult to our prestigious Suzuki family!”

“Is that why you challenged me to a duel? I think it’s only natural to prioritize the princess I’m engaged to over a noble family I have no particular connection with.”

“How can you say that our Suzuki family is inferior to the cursed princess!? We must return the humiliation we’ve received… That’s the motto of the Suzuki family!”

While listening to her headache-inducing remarks, I recalled the character of Suzuki Reira in the original story. That’s right… Reira was this kind of character.

She was a typical proud and superstitious young lady from an old family, with a high pride and a stubborn adherence to tradition. In the story, she wasn’t a bad person at heart, and she even came to reconsider and repent her prejudice against the cursed children due to the words of other characters.

However, at this moment, the fact remained that Yuki-na was being insulted.

“I’ll accept your challenge.”

There was no reason for me to accept such a duel. Even if Yuki-na was despised as a cursed child, refusing a marriage proposal from another family due to my engagement with a princess was a perfectly valid reason. Reira’s provocation was completely baseless. In this country’s culture, refusing a duel for any reason would be considered cowardly, but I didn’t care about that.

However, I had no intention of letting someone who had stepped on my emotional landmines so thoroughly go without a fight. Even if she was one of the battle-oriented heroines, it didn’t matter.

For insulting my beloved fiancée, I would strike her down with a hundred or two hundred blows of my hammer. That’s what it meant to be a man, right?
