Reika-sama – 184

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, redrawers or type-setters to help with the Tashinami scanlations.

Thanks to my big lying mouth I now had a sword above my head.

And I put it there!

When are you going to learn your lesson already, Reika!?

Do you have the brain of a goldfish or something!?

I immediately sent Akimi-san an SOS.

I obviously couldn’t bring homemade nimono to his party.

To begin with I couldn’t cook nimono!

And to think that just a few days after picking home cooking over party foods I’d need to know how to cook party foods.

Haah, I’m so beat~

Enjou spoke to me first thing next morning.

“Yukino tells me that apparently you’re going to be coming to his birthday party. And with your own cooking no less.”

Uuu…

Yukino-kun, have you already told your whole family?

My escape was looking less and less likely.

“Yes… But bringing poor food on such an important day feels like an insult instead of a gift, so I was thinking of declining this time…”

“Yukino was ecstatic, you know. Apparently he’s already looking forward to it.”

“I…”

Yukino-kuuuun…

I felt like I was going to lose my eyebrows over the pressure again.

“It’s not that big of a party since we have to take care of his condition too. It’ll just be a few of his friends from primary, so don’t worry so much. Well, I won’t force you though,” he said as he glanced at my fingers.

Don’t tell me he could tell my skill?

I didn’t want to disappoint Yukino-kun by refusing.

But I didn’t want to disappoint him with my actual cooking either.

Akimi-san, save me.

You’re my only hope, Akimi-san!

I’ll practice cutting vegetables every day!

I’ll even memorise all the recipes so please, lend me your strength!

Still…

“Please at least tell him not to expect too much…”

‘Food-Poisoning at the Enjou Residence!’

I’d do my best not to make that headline a reality.

After school, Class Rep and I were headed for the staff room to submit the reports our classmates did.

Apparently Class Rep had gone with the other three for their New Year’s shrine visit.

“We all got our fortunes and wrote our wishes on ema,” he bashfully told me.

Going on your New Year’s shrine visit with your crush…

What the hell, that sounded super fun.

Why wasn’t I invited?

In-vi-t-e me.

Aren’t I the one who introduced you all to begin with~?

“And I prayed that Honda-san and I would grow closer this year.”

“Hmm~”

“And Honda-san and Nonose-san are making their Valentine’s chocolates together, and they said they’d give some to Iwamuro-kun and I… Ah, as friends of course! I already knew that. Mn.”

“Hmmm~”

“But I hope one day I’ll be able to get a real one from her.”

“Hmmmm~”

Valentine’s huh.

I didn’t even have somebody to give romantic chocolates to this year.

I was running out of time…

I only had one year left in high school.

I wanted to have a dreamy Valentine’s too.

Maybe I could just bite the bullet and give it to Naru-kun.

But then how would a real guy feel about being given chocolates by complete stranger?

It was how they did things in shoujo manga though.

Plus, I didn’t know what I wanted to make this year.

“Kisshouin-san? Still listening?”

Oops, he realised I was just nodding along.

“Why don’t you take those feelings and make her chocolates instead?” I joked.

His eyes sparkled.

Eh? Really?

After we handed over the reports we said goodbye and headed to our respective clubs.

I was already done with the belly warmer so I needed to make something else this year.

“Kisshouin-san,” came a voice from behind.

It turned out to be Wakaba-chan.

“Is something the matter, Takamichi-san?”

She looked around to check that we were alone before walking over to me.

“Say, are you free to come over?”

“Eh!?”

Wakaba-chan was inviting me over!?

Why so suddenly!?

She lowered her voice further before speaking again.

“Don’t you remember? You gave me your uniform the other day. That’s why I wanted to thank you.”

“I, you really should not worry about that. To begin with I was never going to wear those again.”

“Yeah, but still I got something so expensive for free. I’ve been wondering how I could make it up to you all this time, you know. Not that just a cake could really pay you back this time…”

“You really need not worry about that. I mean it. Still, I am very happy that you have invited me over.”

“Really? Then is there anything you want, or that you’d like me to do? There isn’t much I can help you with though.”

“Just being able to eat your family’s cakes is more than enough.”

“And I’ve been saying that that isn’t enough.”

We were going down the stairs together when I suddenly remembered the manga.

There was a scene when Kisshouin Reika had shoved Wakaba-chan down stairs just like these.

I quickly put some distance between us.

“What’s wrong?”

“Ah, nothing to worry about.”

Not that I’d ever do that now, but I stayed away just in case.

Wakaba-chan seemed perplexed about it.

“Ah, by the way. Takamichi-san, could you teach me how to make Valentine’s chocolates?”

“Valentine’s?” she asked.

“Yes.”

What a great idea.

Wakaba-chan loved making desserts.

If I made it together with her then I’m sure something delicious would come of it.

Not that there was anybody to receive it but my family though!

“You could have asked for that whenever,” she objected.

“It seems that I shall be in your care then,” I smiled broadly.

After I bought the claw grip protector I stopped cutting myself.

The cut from the first day was almost healed too.

I was putting a new bandage on it when Oniisama came home with Imari-sama as well.

“Imari-sama, long time no see!”

“Belated Happy New Year, Reika-chan.”

“Happy New Year, Imari-sama.”

You’re sparkling as usual, Imari-sama. You look wonderful in that suit.

“I’ve actually got something to give you, Reika-chan.”

“What is it?”

He reached into his bag and brought out a ribboned box.

“Here. A souvenir from Nagasaki.”

“Wahh, thank you very much. Your parents live there, no?”

“Yep. I showed up for New Year’s. My younger brother had just come back from America so we went there together.”

“I see.”

Imari-sama’s younger brother was staying in America as an exchange student at the moment.

Apparently he liked it better than stuffy old Japan.

I unsealed my present.

In the past Imari-sama had gifted me cute marbles from Nagasaki, or castella sponge cakes.

I still loved those marbles.

Imari-sama had a good sense of what girls liked.

“Wah! Pearls!?”

I opened the velvet case to find a necklace, with a pearl embedded in a silver heart like a teardrop.

“How lovely!”

“Nagasaki is famous for its pearls, after all. I think they suit you. Shall I put it on for you?”

“Don’t touch people’s little sisters whenever you want, Imari,” Oniisama said with a chilling glare.

“Reika-chan, your oniisan is so scary. You know, people say that pearls are the tears of mermaids and fairies, but if that’s true I’d rather that girls cry tears of joy than sadness.”

Oniisama brought down an iron fist onto the smiling Casanova Village Chief’s head.

“Owowowow!”

“Die. Kill yourself! Drown at sea and become the core of some pearl!”

He began strangling Imari-sama with force.

How rare for somebody as kind and peaceful as Oniisama.

They sure got along.

“Thank you for the wonderful present, Imari-sama. Oh, I know! I shall make a pearl chocolate for you for Valentine’s!”

“Ehh? Chocolate from Reika-chan? That sounds great,” he smiled happily, even as he was being beaten across the head.

Having someone outside of your family to give chocolates to really got your motivation up, after all!

“Reika, that…”

You can look forward to it too, Oniisama!

Hmmm, and I also need to get started on Yukino-kun’s birthday food, and…

  1. Oooooo!!! The Great Onii-sama and Imari-sama has appeared!!! Die! Drown at sea and become the core of some pearl! As expected of the Great Onii-sama, you sis-con! I love that scene!

    The Great Onii-sama needs to mentally prepare himself for the chocolate (and not warn Imari-sama —- punishment for being the Chief of Cassanova Village) Lololololol

    Thank you for the chapter!!

    “Don’t touch people’s little sisters whenever you want, Imari,” Oniisama said with a chilling glare. —uwwwooooh Oniisama kitta, I feel like sometimes my fujoshi senses are tingling with Imari and Taketeru, they’re like some old couple or maybe the manzai between them
    (΄◞ิ౪◟ิ‵)
    And this savage-ness from her oniichan “Die. Kill yourself! Drown at sea and become the core of some pearl” srsly 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  5. Oniisan’s verbal abuses are refreshing. It’s not like he would openly do that in Reika’s presence. Plus affection once more

  6. Thanks for the chapter!
    The maiden class rep revived.
    The antics of Imari-sama and Oniisama are hilarious.
    I think Reika-sama is overreaching herself. Reika-sama, I can only give you my support.

  7. Thanks 4 the chapter!

    Will Oni-sama let Imari taste Reika’s cooking without warning him? Or will he warn Imari? Maybe he should insist Imari write his will before tasting Reika’s chocolate.

  8. If this were a litrpg, Reika could grind away at party cooking, home cooking, and confections, only to advance to grandmaster assassin by adulthood.

  9. I kinda hope she at least tries to give chocolate to Naru. Or else her high school days will pass by and cement her position as the Head of Forever Alone Village. Unless there’s an arranged marriage somewhere in the future xD

  12. “Reika, that…”

    Oniisama at crossroads of his life. A hard decision awaits..
    a) To interfere in the choco transfer from his sister to Imari..
    b) To let Imari be poisoned..
    Which one would make the annoyance suffer more?!

  13. There goes Enjou, tightening that noose. (shipping glasses-ON) Wonder if he wants to taste Reika’s cooking as well? Not sure how that’ll go.
    -__-||| lol

    Oh, not only home cooking, but Reika wants to improve her chocolate-making skills? There might be some hope for her yet. Of course, as long as she stops landing herself into more sticky situations. When will she ever learn? XDD

    (shipping glas-NO!) There goes Imari with that flirting again. I think he leveled up. But what’s with targeting Reika? Does he WANT Oniisama to kill him!?

    Thanks so much for today’s release! What a nice surprise ^^

    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    Hmmmm…. why do i suddenly have an odd thought about that scene Reika mentioned?

    Is there going to be rumours that wakaba is blackmailing Reika soon? ..like taking away reika’s school uniform or forcing her to buy her cake.. or forcing her to her place?

  15. Strange…… I don’t think that onii-san was that wary of Inari in the past….. and the present he gave Reika this time is……… for those that don’t know, according to shoujo/josei manga/novels/othershows, to give a necklace to a woman is to want her……

  16. thnx for the chapter

    and if reika wasnt resistant to charming people she would have fallen for imari long, long time ago, its a pitty that imari dont know that reika´s chocolate are special lol

  17. You know…. the ”I’d rather that girls cry tears of joy than sadness” part Imari says can be taken the wrong way with a, ahem, worldly enough mind. Especially once you remember that in most manga/anime/entertainment from Japan girls cry during sex – because it feels soo good~ ….. No wonder Oniisama blew a fuse.
