The World of Otome Games is Tough For Mobs Vol 2 Chapter 2.1

Chapter 2.1Love Confession

“Mister Leon! This will not do . Those who march on the path of tea do not cause trouble for a lady! That is not what a gentleman does!”

“I’m sorry, Mentor . However, I──I had my circ.u.mstances!”

The cafe no longer had any guests .

My mentor scolded me .

Anjie asked my mentor for help, and now I was being lectured . Normally, I would ignore what someone says while keeping a serious expression, but I took my mentor’s words to heart .

I couldn’t go against this person .

After all, my mentor was my teacher for tea before a teacher of the academy .

My mentor placed his hand on my shoulder .

“It must have been painful . It must have been hard . However, don’t give up . Beyond is the path of a true gentleman──leading to the path of tea . ”

“──R, right, Mentor!”

The path of a gentleman seemed long and steep .

My mentor’s words left a strong impression on me, and then I heard a sigh .

The adult woman was now sitting on chair with an exhausted face . By her sides sat Anjie and Livia, and they surrounded a round table .

I changed my ragged clothes while Daniel and Raymond left the cafe to get in touch with their friends for a fun party .

The irritating girls were pardoned by the queen and left the scene to run away . I engraved their faces into my mind . ──I definitely wouldn’t forget them .

“It seems your discussion is over . So, is it okay if I speak next?”

My mentor straightened his back, adjusted his suit, and started acting like a waiter .

“In that case, let me prepare some tea . Mister Leon, may I borrow your tools?”

“Of course!”

I was delighted to have my mentor use the instruments and tea leaves of mine .

Leaving that aside, I was worried about how the queen seemed angry at me .

“Leon . I’m mad . ”

When the queen said that, I instantly went down on my knees and put my hands onto the floor .

“So you really were angry, I understand, but please spare my family at least! I, I don’t care about what you do to me!”

Milaine became fl.u.s.tered once again when I took such an att.i.tude .

“Huh? No . T, that’s not it . That’s not what I’m talking about . Anjie, help!”

Once I saw Milaine seeking help from Anjie, who was sitting next to her, I understood that she wasn’t really angry .

Well actually, I already knew that from the start, but I wanted to poke fun at her through my acting skills .

If the queen was genuinely angry, I would have been fleeing from the kingdom by now .

However, Anjie realized that I was acting .

“Milaine, he’s teasing you . Leon’s face is telling me that he knows you’re not really angry . ”

“Huh?”

When Milaine looked at me, I stuck my tongue out while resting a fist onto my head──a silly pose .

It seemed that she didn’t take kindly to that, as she glared at me with a frighteningly cold gaze .

“How cheap . I misjudged you . ”

“My apologies!”

After I made a sincere apology, my mentor went towards Milaine to provide his services . I felt like my mentor could make a business out of preparing tea .

The fragrance was shocking .

Augh! It was made using the same tea leaves, and yet why was there this big of a difference?

It wasn’t just a difference in fragrance .

As expected of my mentor .

“Queen, you wanted to travel incognito, but──”

“It’s fine . To my disappointment, I can tell that what happened was due to the bullying going on . Leon, I came to make a complaint towards you . Not anything like a punishment, just some private talk . ”

──I suppose that I should have expected this .

The reason being that I had beaten up Julian .

His mother wouldn’t forgive me for that .

Well Milaine was the queen──but in the game, she was a so-called enemy . As can be seen from her close relations.h.i.+p with Anjie, she was someone who would be hostile towards the protagonist, causing both her and Anjie to become the protagonist’s enemies .

As expected for a game marketed towards women . The mother-in-laws were loathsome .

She was someone who didn’t forgive the protagonist for having Julian fall in love with her . Saying this is obvious, but in the otome game, she was an opponent who tried to disrupt the relations.h.i.+p between the two .

It was a bit absurd . It was quite obvious to tell that she fit the template for a cruel person .

By the end, Milaine eventually recognized the protagonist .

That was caused by the protagonist gaining the position of a saint . The position of a saint had a very important religious meaning .

These explanations were just part of the overly-lackl.u.s.ter explanations in the game, though . There was no explanation for why a saint was so grand, but it was as if the protagonist was commended for doing a great service in the end .

The power of the protagonist herself was also pretty major, but to think that the power of saint was this immense .

I’ve gone off-topic . Well, I wonder what criticism Milaine had for me .

“Do tell . ”

“Alright . Well then──I’ll first apologize for Julian . I’m sorry that you had to deal with that child’s selfishness . ”

I didn’t expect her to start with an apology .

I didn’t expect her to start with an apology .

She was quite courteous for someone supposedly evil .

“Even as his mother, I myself don’t understand why things turned out like this . Though this may be improper to say, it’s a relief that he at least has a lover who’s from a viscount household . He hadn’t cared for women when he was at the royal palace, so I didn’t think that he would be this fixated on her . ”

Milaine stared right into my pupils .

It was as if her clear, blue eyes were about to devour me .

I then noticed something remarkable . ──This person was very beautiful .

When considering her behavior from just a while ago, I wouldn’t believe that she were someone who was even in her thirties .

Actually, wasn’t she pretty cute?!

“However, I cannot condone what happened in the duel . That fight was too harsh . Couldn’t you have resolved it in a more peaceful way?”

I did think it was possible, but I didn’t really care because I wanted to relieve my stress .

While making a timid face, I glanced at Livia and Anjie to ask for help . However, the two didn’t pay attention .

The cause for that was probably the words the earl daughter said a while ago .

They both cast their eyes downward and didn’t notice the eye contact I was making with them .

When I made a silent prayer in order to ask Luxon for help, I heard an electronic sound .

[Master doing things peacefully? Impossible . What does this person expect from my master?]

──What a heartless companion .

What a useless AI! It should’ve been more friendly towards me!

However, my silence was misunderstood by Milaine . She was wondering what I was thinking about when looking at both Livia and Anjie .

“Oh, could it be because of that? How youthful you are~ . ”

Just what kind of misunderstanding did she have, teasing me while making a smirk?

──Well, I kept on being silent since it was convenient .

“Leon, I think you know this, but you have many enemies in the royal palace . Many people had placed their expectations on Julian . Have you thought carefully about what you will do from now on?”

Let alone the royal palace, I had so many enemies within the academy .

Seriously, why did such a virtuous person like me have to suffer such an experience? Anyways, I suppose I would have enemies in the royal palace .

“Of course . ”

I pretended to be aware of it, but I was relying on Anjie’s father for the matters of the royal palace . In the first place, I didn’t want to show up in the royal palace, nor was I interested in being promoted .

If I had the choice, I would have liked being demoted instead .

So there were people who had expectations for Julian? They should’ve just given up and accept that they had misjudged . Really, they had poor discernment skills . After all, Julian incompetency was clear the moment he threw away Anjie and chose Marie .

He was disqualified from being the crown prince .

“I see . You’re a capable child, aren’t you . Perhaps if there was a child like you by Julian’s side, he wouldn’t have gone down an erroneous path . ”

“I see . You’re a capable child, aren’t you . Perhaps if there was a child like you by Julian’s side, he wouldn’t have gone down an erroneous path . ”

I wondered about that . Marie would certainly have kept a distance if I were by his side . However, in that case, Livia might have gotten together with Julian for some game-like reason . In that case, Anjie would become her enemy .

Whether it be the right choice for the game or the right choice for reality──both were bothersome .

How troubling . If I were by his side, I have a feeling that I would have more troubles than what I had right now .

Though, there’s no point in talking about hypothetical scenarios .

“I’m not going to change my stance . ”

“Is that so? So be it then, I have one other goal for today . Do help me with it . ”

“One other goal?”

“Since I came from a different country, I’ve never attended the academy . So, I want to have some memories about this academy~ . You can help with that, right Leon? The academy greatly interests me . All of my female acquaintances have been talking about it in delight, and that makes me envious . ”

A woman in her thirties wanted memories of the academy while making a mischievous smile towards me?

Perhaps in my previous life, I would have showed respect to my elders with a smile .

However──that wasn’t the case anymore .

I got up and grabbed Milaine’s hand .

What beautiful hands she had .

“Huh?”

Milaine voiced out as such in surprise .

“Sure thing . Let’s make some memories at the academy . Milaine──please marry me!”

Milaine was fl.u.s.tered and had a red face .

Livia and Anjie got up from their chairs .

“Leon! What are you saying?!”

“Y, y──you! You’re talking to the queen!”

As expected, my mentor was also surprised . Wasn’t I amazing for making my mentor, a perfect gentleman, shocked?

“Mister Leon, I cannot laugh at such absurd jests!”

I knew this would happen . I was aware of what I was doing, but I wanted them to think carefully here .

What was the goal of going to the academy? Pursuit of knowledge? Wrong answer!

This was the academy from that otome game . There was only one goal! It was marriage! In other words, she must have wanted such memories . In that case, what I had to do was make a marriage proposal!

I wasn’t being serious, but what could I do when she said that she wanted to make memories?

In other words, the queen wanted a confession of love! What a glorious deduction of mine . I’m amazing!

In addition, Milaine was very excellent when one saw her as a marriage partner . So she has given birth before? That’s just proof that she could make children! n.o.bles wanted heirs anyways, so they would warmly welcome it! So she wasn’t a virgin? Almost all of the girls in the academy weren’t virgins anyways!

Other than in fantasies, there was no such thing as a virgin!

What about age? It’s all good . Rather than teenage brutes who hadn’t learned manners, a graceful cute woman in her thirties was better! I wanted to marry an actual human being!

Other than in fantasies, there was no such thing as a virgin!

What about age? It’s all good . Rather than teenage brutes who hadn’t learned manners, a graceful cute woman in her thirties was better! I wanted to marry an actual human being!

This is what I came to understand through my academy life . I should stop having fantasies about girls already .

If I had to choose between the girls at the academy or Milaine, I would choose Milaine without hesitation!

Oh, wait . I intended this to be a joke, but was there really anyone as perfect as her?

“I like you! I love you!”

The words came out of my mouth before my mind could even process what I was saying .

“T, that’s troubling . I, I’m already a older woman with a husband and kids . ”

“That doesn’t matter . You’re beautiful . Even if you have a family, I still like──gah!”

When I saw Milaine’s cute blushed face and her eyes getting moist, I quickly felt something hit me in the back of the head .

Who was it?! I’ll send them flying!

I turned around while thinking so and saw an enraged Julian .

His suit was in disorder, and the chest area was left unb.u.t.toned and wide open . His hair was also disheveled . It seemed that he was quite exhausted .

“Ah, your Highness . ”

As I said that, Julian raised a tray overhead .

“You’ve got some nerve to seduce someone’s mother, Baltfault . It’s unfortunate that I can’t slice you up here . ”

He was genuinely angry .

I suppose that was natural, considering that I was. .h.i.tting on his mother right in front of his eyes .

Milaine was perplexed .

“T, that’s not it, Julian . T, this is──”

“Mother, take your hands off of him! Baltfault, you too should release her!”

“Eh~I don’t wanna . ”

Julian struck me in hatred .

I was sent flying away .

“Leon!”

In a panic, Milaine tried rus.h.i.+ng over to me, but Julian grabbed her by the hand and left the cafe .

“Mother, this has gone on for long enough . Our cafe is right next to this one . I’d like to hear what you have to say for yourself once we’re there . Good grief, why are you in this academy?”

I had a thought while seeing the two leave .

──Queen, I wonder if I made a good memory for you at the academy . Love Confession

“Mister Leon! This will not do . Those who march on the path of tea do not cause trouble for a lady! That is not what a gentleman does!”.

“I’m sorry, Mentor . However, I──I had my circ.u.mstances!”.
