Reika-sama – 169

Everybody, please check the FAQ first before asking me questions.
If it’s not on there, please feel free and ask. I only get annoyed at questions when the same one has been asked 10+ times, and by then I’ll have updated the FAQ. Thank you for your consideration, guys!

Hi guys! Looking for experienced cleaners or type-setters to help with the Tashinami scanlations.


On the day of the party I was told to immediately head to the hair salon after school. There, they did my hair and make-up, before leaving with Okaasama straight for the hotel where the party was being held.

Otousama and Oniisama would be headed here after work so until then I decided to just have a sandwich and study in the waiting room or something. I didn’t want to get my dress creased so I’d leave it off until the last minute. Tonight I would be wearing a loose dress.

Hm, this ham sandwich was pretty good.

“Reika-san, you shouldn’t eat too much. You won’t be able to fit in your dress.”

Okaay…

*

Apparently they hadn’t been lying to me about this being an important party for us. Even Ririna who was just a relative was here. Her exams were coming up too. I could sympathise with her family issues cutting down on her study time. Huh, Ririna had better grades than me, didn’t she. Maybe I could ask for her study methods later.

As for me, although I was the daughter of the chairman, not only was I still a high schooler, but I wasn’t even the heir. Today I was basically just here as an extra. All I had to do was stand with my family and keep smiling.

After a while, Otousama was surrounded by other important men, while Okaasama was surrounded by ladies she was close with, so I decided to leave and wander about to see if there was somewhere with less people.

Oniisama had already been caught by the same girls who were aiming to be his bride. Godspeed, Oniisama.

I greeted people with a smile as I walked about until I came across Narutomi Akimi-san. She was the young woman I met at the fasting course.

“Akimi-san.”

“Ah, Reika-san.”

A little chubby-looking, for some reason I felt really warm and relaxed around her.

“Thank you very much for inviting me tonight.”

“Thank you for attending when you must be so busy.”

She noticed me looking at the food in her hands.

“The food here is really good. I think I might have eaten too much,” she smiled in embarrassment.

“My, I am overjoyed that it is to your taste.”

I constantly told Otousama that the most important thing for these parties was the food. These corporate parties were already boring at best, so if the food wasn’t even yummy what the hell was even the point.

And since I was talking about food anyhow, I made sure to tell him to make sure the company cafeteria was good too. If the employees had good food then they’d be more motivated.

That meant one step further away from our downfall! It’s important to start with the small things.

“Will you not be eating, Reika-san?”

“Ehh, perhaps later…”

Yeah. Even if the food was great, it was difficult as an ojousama to eat your fill at these parties. Reapplying the gloss was a pain, and if you ate too much your stomach would bulge too. And for careless people like me it would be a disaster if I accidentally got some sauce on my dress.

Still, we’d be bringing home the food that you could take home, so I could enjoy myself later~

The scallops meunière that she was having looked great.

I think I wanted some too. I wonder if it was on the list of take-home foods.

A few men suddenly passed us.

“Of course the fatty is eating,” said one of them, and the others laughed along.

Akimi-san’s expression changed in a heartbeat.

What assholes!

I had just taken a step in their direction when Akimi-san stopped me.

“Akimi-san?”

“It’s fine, Reika-san.”

“But…”

“I am fat…” she smiled feebly.

What did that have to do with anything. Somebody needed to teach those insensitive assholes the fear of god!

She didn’t have to worry so much. It’s wasn’t like I was going to charge up and tell them to apologise.

Any apology I could wring out of idiots like them would just be insincere, and in the process it would turn her into a spectacle.

You had to fight fire with fire.

Instead, I was planning to flick some brown demiglace sauce on the butt of their trousers.

Then all I had to do was shame them!

“Goodness. What in heavens is that stench…” or something like that!

You guys should just be forever known as the poop boys! Ukekekekekekekekeke!

“Please excuse me. I’m going to touch up my makeup…”

Akimi-san placed her empty dish down and she left the room as I watched her go. Once she was gone, I headed off for my journey of revenge.

When I came back from my journey, I noticed Imari-sama waving at me.

“Imari-sama!”

“Good evening, Reika-chan.”

And goodness, he was just radiating mature charm once again.

“That wine red dress you’re wearing this evening is a bit more mature than usual. I couldn’t help but stare. You were like a rose spirit.”

Hauu! An arrow of bewitchment shot through my heart!

Luckily I had high resistance from knowing him since I was little!

Imari-sama picked out a glass of non-alcoholic wine for me in the colour of my dress. Popular men were always attentive to these sort of things.

We chatted about Oniisama for a while before touching on the topic I was most interested in.

“By the way, Imari-sama, is the story about you being stabbed by a woman true?”

“Eh!? Reika-chan, how did you know about that!? Did you hear it from Takateru?”

“A little bird told me.”

I couldn’t exactly answer ‘Eavesdropping.’ now could I?

“Ah boy, I never would have thought that you knew, Reika-chan. But calling it stabbing is just exaggerating.”

“Is that so?”

“Yeah. I just got into a bit of a tiff with a woman who was holding a knife, and it just happened to cut my left palm a bit. Look. See? Thanks to that the fortunes off my palm readings have completely changed.”

When I looked there really was a small white scar.

Still, stabbing or not, blood really had been spilt. What kind of life was Imari-sama even living…

Oh, hang on. Could it be…?

“Come to think of it, when you were a high school student in Zui’ran you were in the Basketball Club, were you not?”

“Ohh! So you remembered~ That’s right. I was in the Basketball Club. God, that brings back memories~”

Oh my god! So being some womaniser was actually characteristic of the Zui’ran Basketball Club!?

Zui’ran Academy’s Boy’s Basketball Club.
A.K.A. the Casanova Village, sworn enemies of the Forever Alone Village.

“Reika-san!”

While we continued to chat, Ririna came trotting over.

“Oh, Ririna.”

“It’s been a while, Ririna-chan.”

“Gokigen’yoh, Imari-sama. Geez, it took so long to get away from Okaasama!” she huffed as she took a drink from a server.

After having a gulp, she sighed.

“My condolences,” I offered.

“Ririna-chan, you’re wearing a bit of lily perfume today, aren’t you. It’s a perfect fit for your name, isn’t it, just like your dress tonight is a perfect fit for you.”

Oh my god! Apparently the Chief of the Casanova Village possessed a skill that allowed him to identify women’s perfumes too. No wonder he was Chief.

“Thank you…” replied Ririna as her mouth threatened to smile happily.

Her mood had taken a 180 with just a few words. One day Imari-sama was going to get stabbed for real.

Since I noticed Akimi-san coming back, I signalled her over. I hoped she was okay now. Maybe it was just an excuse for her to go cry…

She was smiling as she came over, but she was startled when she realised Imari-sama was standing next to me.

“Akimi-san. I think you may already know, but this is Momozono Imari-sama. He and my Oniisama have been friends since they were young. Imari-sama, this is Narutomi Akimi-san, whose care I have enjoyed. As for this girl, her name is Kotou Ririna, my younger cousin.”

“U-Um, please to meet you. My name is Narutomi Akimi…”

“Nice to meet you. Reika-chan never told me she had such a lovely friend. So how do you write ‘Akimi’?”

“U-, Umm, ‘aki’ as in ‘refulgent’, and ‘mi’ as in ‘beautiful’…”

“I see, I see. It suits you perfectly. Perhaps a drink then, for the lovely lady.”

Akimi-san was flustered and bright red. I wasn’t surprised.

Casanova Village Chief, I see what kind of life you live…

Ah well, as long as Akimi-san wasn’t sad anymore.

But Akimi-san looked completely entranced by him. Oh dear. Akimi-san, that’s a bad man, you know~

“Good evening, Kisshouin-san.”

This time it was Kaburagi and Enjou. Ueeehh…

Oh. In front of the three shining young men, Akimi-san had blown a fuse.

Hang in there, Akimi-san!


“Oh my god! So the Zui’ran Basketball Club was actually characteristic of being some womaniser’s hang out!?”

Excerpt from Chapter 154:

 

Last was the Basketball Club.

Oh my, no need to look so scared. I only have one line for you.

“You laid your hands on your senpai’s girlfriend, did you not?”

  1. Hohoho Devil Reika strikes again! Make it look like they sh*t in their pants!!!! How dare those filthy scum insult Akimi-chan!

    I hope they show Imari-sama’s girlfriend… (or was that a lie by Onii-sama?! I want another exerpt on The Great Onii-sama)

    Will the Forever Alone Village Chief set out for war against the Cassanova Village Chief?

    1. I’m a bit disappointed that they skipped over her journey..
      But yeah, Imari-sama, it may not have been a good idea to anger a girl with a knife in her hand, cuz it sure ended up “in” yours. His girlfriend should be someone immune to his Casanova powers.

    1. I don’t understand. Small enough kitchen knives are pretty bad weapons, particularly in the hands of somebody who isn’t really used to fighting. Just flinching reflexively makes it likely that he’d catch the knife there.

      1. Also, people don’t really apply what makes sense rational intellectual sense to moment-by-moment actions in fighting.

        (Particularly poor soldiers waste ammo firing in the direction of enemies they can’t see. Stabbing is pretty lethal with knives, but I can very easily picture some girl just limp wristing a bunch of ineffectual cuts with what amounts to a fruit knife.)

    Reika-sama is cute when worrying about her image, just by eating at a party.
    Bakaburagi enters, I hope he will not crash the party, and if he does then I hope that Imari-san puts him in his place.

    Teach me your ways, Reika-sama.

    It just occurred to me, since most of Reika’s romance tips is from Imari, does that make Imari the “Grandmaster of Romance” to Class Rep and Iwamuro-kun? For someone claiming to be an enemy of the Enjoying Love/Casanova Village, Reika sure maintain good relations with the Village Chief.

        1. I ship ReiNjou. Either one is fine~

          Enjou is such a fine house of gentlemen~ Oh, we’ve never saw Papa Enjou yet…

          Mama Enjou is a fragile/ethereal beauty, how about our Papa Enjou? Black-bellied & gentle one? Or a somehow rigid/traditional/conservative one? A stern one? A wise one? Silly one? Shuusuke Senior? XD

          Looking at Kaburagi who seems to inherit his mom’s taste/styles and a bit mindsets and perfectionist/sharp-edged manner…lol. Is Papa Kaburagi is actually like his son? Uncle with gap moe perhaps? Or perhaps he is like Earl Vincent from Kuroshitsuji…

          Gahhh I’ve sooo many questions

          Like

          1. I’ve heard secondhand, as we weeaboos are wont to, that husbands generally don’t get themselves very much involved in the raising of the daughters. (Evidently, this spawns a subset of fiction involving dads being parents to daughters.)

            This doesn’t seem to apply very much to Papa Kisshouin though, since he likes to brag that he’s close to his daughter. Or maybe that’s exactly why Reika finds him so invasive.

            Like

            1. Of course, part of it is that traditional family units are segregated so that the man is the breadwinner and women are homemakers.

              This is heavily-reflected in the conservative expectations of Suiran families. Mama Kisshouin tells Reika that she doesn’t need to worry about studying because she’s a girl and boys are inevitably expected to become the heirs that will run the family business.

              Basically, if I had to extrapolate, I’d say it’s mostly the Suiran wives are most likely to have a huge influence over daughters because of a combination of free time and the expectation that they’re the one styling or educating daughters. (It’s Mama Kisshouin who insists upon Reika’s curled hair, drags her to fasting sessions at the Kaburagi hotel and is the one to dress Reika up for social events.)

              As for the boys, well Mama Kaburagi was the one to host Masaya’s play date. The one which Reika (grudgingly) went to.

    Wanted to do a little Enjou pov hehe.

    Enjou waved at Kaburagi, greeting his friend, he scanned the room looking for the hosts daughter, finding her slowly creeping past people engaged in conversation, with a rather evil expression on her beautiful face, raising his eyebrow he watched amused, what was she doing? he thought intrigued. His eyes widened as he saw her flick some kind of brown sauce on some guys backside, the look of triumph on her face was priceless as she stealthily walked away very proud of herself. Enjou grinned laughing, Kaburagi looked at his friend questioningly, Enjou simply smiled, without explaining.

    I cut about a quarter inch into my thumb when I sneezed and dropped my cooking knife and tried to catch it. There is a scar, but it is barely visible, and is now the same color as the surrounding skin. (It’s been about a month and a half)

    Anyways, Imari has a scar on his hand from when he was in high school (pretty sure he graduated, right?). And it is still a noticeably different color. It is quite possible that the original wound could have been much bigger.

    1. My sister left an embarrassing, question inducing scar on my wrist for several years. She was trying to tickle me, and the adjustment dial on her wrist watch slashed across my wrist. It was only the depth of the dial, so not that deep, but it took several years to go away.
      I have another, small, but deep wound on my upper arm that took many years to turn skin colored- however, it can still be seen if you look for it. I got that scar somewhere over 15 years ago, now.

  15. I really wish they wouldn’t put stuff in this story about ntr. It’s even more disturbing when surrounded by the fluff that is everything else.

    That’s a huge strike against Imari’s character since he doesn’t seem to be remorseful for his actions, either.

    Like

    1. Reika doesn’t like Imari in a romantic way she only uses him as a shield to get out of misunderstandings. However she does respect him as a “Casanova” because he uses attention, respect and delicacy when dealing with girls unlike Bakuragi.
