065 Ball ２
I’m reading it while translating, so, I’m not really that far ahead of you all… I don’t even dare to mtl it… lol
Dun dun dun… would Christoph be married with Dorothy? The flags been set! Now, read ‘em all!
「Oi, what the heck！」「don’t push！」
After passing through the gaps of the young masters, I finally reach Dorothy’s place.
Sigh, I definitely won’t come again next year!
「your highness Dorothy, Christoph von Bryutzels greet you」
Dorothy-sama seems to be surprised seeing me suddenly appeared.
For now, let’s just say a word or two and withdraw.
「Today, you’re more beautiful than always, you make the moon shines over the night sky hid out of your beauty」
Even though I’m the one who says it, the words filled with nonsense.
Well, including the day I’m still a Japanese, I never did say anything to praise a woman.
While thinking so, I feel sad that even in this Hecato it would be hard to approach a woman. (TN: Lol, you need to learn the art of being cheesy from this great translator of yours!… though I already became a joke nowadays… orz)
At the moment, I’ve no one I like or a fiancée, and I definitely can’t pick on girls ～。
・・・Let’s go home asap。
「Christoph-sama always surprised me with his unusual presence」
・・・Now that I thought, isn’t it the first time Dorothy-sama ever called me by the first name?
Well, not like I care.
In addition, my appearance is different, I look like a noble because of my clothes, like they said, Clothes make the man.
Yosh, since I’ve already greet Dorothy-sama! You guys need to come in front of me!
Wait, there’s no one！
Where were all those nobles and bonbon(Tln: a green young man from a well to do family / Richie rich – I’m keeping it as is from now on) went to!
To leave Dorothy-sama alone like this・・・this is bad.
If this keeps up, I’d be the one dancing with Dorothy-sama.
・・・in the end, I danced with her.
Moreover, I missed my timing and danced for 3 songs.
Dorothy-sama’s face is red, maybe she danced too much,
「you must be thirsty, let me bring you a drink」
Alright, with this let’s take a breath and leave.
Since I’m not only greeted Dorothy-sama, I also danced with her so father won’t complain.
「let’s go to the garden to take a breather」
I handed Dorothy-sama a drink and tried to leave but・・・why would Dorothy-sama take a liking with me？
I’m in trouble・・・I end up taking the leading character Dorothy-sama out of the venue・・・
What kind of conversation should I make？
In school she always regarded me as a rival and compete with me, so it’s a hassle if I said bad things and gets her discouraged.
「U, um・・・」「wha, what is it？」
「Um, you see・・・」「yes」
「That dress・・・is beautiful」
Can’t you say something better！
「Thank you very much. It’s one mother picked」
「Is that so, Queen’s・・・」
Now that you mention it, I’m a cousin with Dorothy-sama isn’t it。
Dorothy-sama’s mother, the Queen, is father’s oldest sister。
Which mean, probably・・・
「Excuse me, but. There’s a question I want to ask・・・」
「What is it？」
「Have we met before we entered the Royal magic school？」
Dorothy-sama’s face, which smiled before became clouded.
「As expected you don’t remember it・・・」
This answer meant that I’ve met her right？
「No, it’s not Christoph-sama’s fault. In addition, we have only met three times so・・・and Christoph-sama always atop the bed and reading book・・・it’s great you’ve recovered」
There aren’t many things a sickly person does atop the bed, so reading books is the only option.
I’ve done a bad thing that I don’t remember it.
「Christoph-sama, can you teach me next time？」
「In order to catch up with Christoph-sama, I want to see how did Christoph-sama study」
「Yes, I don’t mind」
Well, Dorothy-sama always saying what she wanted, seeing her act polite make me off-pitch.
Which is the real Dorothy-sama I wonder？
However, I think better of this kind of Dorothy-sama.
Above all, her smile is pretty.
Did Dorothy-sama act like that in school so that she won’t be belittled by the other noble？
「I enjoyed talking to Dorothy-sama today. If there’s a chance, I’d be happy to hear old stories again」
「Yes, I’m alright with it. If it’s alright, what about tomorrow？」
Tomorrow is not good・・・I need to produce the order for fort Verdez・・・
「I’m sorry that while I’m the one who requested it, I have another appointment tomorrow・・・」
「Is that so・・・No, it’s always alright for me whenever. Feel free to call me whenever」
Seeing a fidgeting Dorothy-sama healed me.
Every day’s Dorothy-sama always looks strong but, having a conversation at this event, she sure is cute.
「Thank you very much」
With nice timing, a firework exploded.
There are 3 groups from the Royal magic academy which included in this event, Chrysnan-anesama also included.
In addition, it’s a big event where the court magician and nobles’ hired magician throwing their fireworks.
With encouraging words from his majesty, their stamina is boundless, which makes their exhaustion blown away.
While in a war, they did something so carefree.
Well, it’s not mine to say.
「Yes, everyone been doing their best for today. I hope they can entertain us and the citizen with this」
While I don’t have the qualification to say it, but I believe everyone worked hard for today’s event・・・
「If Christoph-sama participating, he’d undoubtedly have a masterpiece. How regretful」
「There’s no such things」
「Too much humility will be sarcasm you know. fufufu」
Fu~, when we’re talking like this, Dorothy-sama is an easy person to talk with.
From now on, let’s call her out whenever I see her.
Apparently, I had a habit of unconsciously distancing myself from people, and I think I can use this opportunity to improve it even a little.
Since my plan to escape from the Ball failed in an unexpected way, we can say it’s alright since I’ve my fun with Dorothy-sama. (TN: if only this is an r-17 or 18, she’d already pushed her now… ah, wimpy Japanese protagonist… damn, I’ve been corrupted!)
It was almost midnight when I part with Dorothy-sama and returned to the mansion, but Filia and mother still waiting for me.
Of course, most of the people in the mansion is still awake, and within the returning carriage father included, which had a complicated expression.
Not only have I greeted Dorothy-sama, I even dance and spent some time with her, which gave me a full mark.
「Christoph, What do you think of Dorothy-sama？」
It’s a totally unexpected question.
「That・・・do you like her？」
Hahaha, what the heck did he say？
Me, liking Dorothy-sama？
I admit that she’s pretty and she had a beautiful smile.
But Dorothy-sama only see me as a rival・・・
・・・This, me・・・like her？
「・・・I don’t really know」
「Is that so・・・」
