- Chapter 21 - A Girl Named Nagi Suzuki<Battle With The Witch's Genus>
After school, Beni and I were at a trendy cafe. We chose a place recommended by Okita. It’s annoying that he knows such a place that seems to be popular with girls.
After Okita barged into our club room, we decided to talk in detail after school, so we came here because this place was designated.
“Shinya… must have really not told Okita about me, because you seem careless.”
“No, I don’t want Beni to be the one to tell me about that…”
“What do you mean!? I’m the Witch of Hades, I would never make such a mistake!”
No, I’m pretty sure Eriko knew about it too. At this rate, I wonder if anyone close to us in class is aware of it. I thought about it, but if I told her, she might cry, so I decided to keep quiet.
“Sorry, I’m a little late.”
“Sorry to keep you guys waiting.”
Okita came in and behind her was a small gothic lolita with colored contacts. Oh man, what an outfit. I can’t get enough of her, and my otaku senses are tingling. Beni is beautiful, but this girl suits the word “cute” better. That aside, there’s something I need to tell Okita.
“I don’t care how much you like big tits, but don’t hook up with some middle schooler.”
“Why would you say thaaaaat! Do you have any idea how many times I’ve been dragged around by her…!?”
I don’t think this girl wanted to go on a double date with such an elaborate plan though? But she has a very nice fashion sense. Isn’t it too good, especially with the odd eyes?
“Zhu!! Why are you here… and why are you with someone who is physiologically unfit? You’ll be looked at sexually. Get out of here.”
“It’s been a while since I’ve seen you, Beni-Anesama, and while this guy is definitely suspicious, he’s a good suspicious guy.”
“Tanaka-san!! I’m in the same class as you, can’t you remember my name by nowww!?”
Okita’s screams echoed through the cafe. I was surprised to find out that the girl Okita had brought with her and Beni knew each other. And it’s not just Sachiko Tanaka, she knows Beni Yomizaka. They must not have a shallow relationship.
The girl smiled fearlessly when she noticed me looking at her.
“I’m sorry I didn’t introduce myself sooner, but my name is Zhu Yomizaka!! I was given the color from the safflower that blooms in Hades and has the power of vermilion. People call me the genus of the Witch of Hades.”
I guessed from that introduction. Yeah, she’s one of us. And unlike us, she’s probably still active. If so, it would be rude if I didn’t treat her well.
“My name is Shinya Kisaragi. Shinya is an arrow that pierces even the gods. My body is sealed with a black dragon… Maybe that’s why people call me the Knight of the Black Dragon. I see, you’re a member of Beni’s family… I heard about you from Okita.”
“I’ve heard rumors about you, Knight of the Black Dragon. It’s an honor to meet you.”
“Everyone seems to know me, but I should also introduce myself. My name is Beni Yomizaka, in the other world of Yomizaka, and my name is Beni of safflower. People call me the Witch of Hades.”
“Eh, I’m sorry, what’s going on? Or rather, isn’t Tanaka-san too different from her usual character?”
Okita made a pathetic noise, but no one responded. We all looked at him and said, “You should introduce yourself.”
“Eh? I’m Shou Okita…”
“Haa~… you’re as useless as ever, suspicious person. You get a zero.”
“Read the atmosphere here… Zero points for you.”
“Why am I being ripped off like this when I haven’t done anything wrong…?”
Ignoring Okita, who was mentally in shambles, the conversation went on. He’s alone in his head for now, but he’ll recover on his own.
“So, Zhu-chan, right? What is the reason why you called us here today?”
“I heard from the suspicious person right here that you, The Knight of the Black Dragon, and Beni-Anesama, the witch of Hades, have become engaged in a future relationship. But I wanted to find out if you’re really worthy of Beni-Anesama as a man.”
“Hee~, so you think that The Knight of the Black Dragon is not worthy?”
“What are you talking about, Zhu, Shinya is not getting on. Or rather, it’s as if you’re pledging our future to each other, like a marriage proposal…”
It seems that this Zhu girl has come to see if I am worthy of being Beni’s boyfriend. As The Knight of the Black Dragon, I can’t afford to be defeated by the genus of The Witch of Hades. And most importantly, this nostalgic feeling is not bad… but rather good!! What happened on the riverbank and now are all things that tickle my Otaku mind. I’m really grateful to Beni. Huh, why is Beni’s face red?
“I’m sorry, Beni-Anesama… but I don’t trust that this man really cares about you, Beni-Anesama. I don’t want to see Beni-Anesama grieving because she was tricked by a sleazy man.”
“Zhu… but don’t worry Shinya is…”
“No, it’s fine, let’s talk about it.”
This girl’s eyes are piercing me. I’m not going to lose my love for Beni to anyone, even if we’re just a fake couple. Although I don’t know what the other side thinks about it.
“Hmm, that’s nice, but I don’t think it’s fair, there’s always the possibility that Tanaka-san isn’t serious, right?”
“No, I don’t think that’s possible, because Beni-Anesama’s story about the knight of the Black Dragon seems to be… well, rather happy…”
Zhu’s cheeks blushed for some reason. Ehh, wait, what did she just say? I’m really curious. I’m sure she didn’t say anything about stopping time, right? But if my sexual preferences were to become known to Beni’s juniors, I would want to die on the spot.
“Zhu… What would you say if I showed you?”
“Yes, by all means, Beni-Anesama!!”
Beni replied to Zhu in the gentlest voice I’ve ever heard. What is this? What’s with the smile and the chills!? Zhu’s eyes are tearing up.
“So… how do I prove that I’m serious about Beni?”
“You’ll have to compete with me on that.”
“A duel between a witch’s genus and The Knight of the Black Dragon… that’s not a bad idea!”
“Yes, let’s take turns saying what’s nice about Beni-Anesama. The first one to run out loses.”
“What are you two talking about? Stop it, you’re embarrassing me.”
“Oh, Shinya’s switched on, too… Looks like there’s no stopping this.”
This is why the duel with the witch’s family member, Zhu Yomizaka, had begun.
Translator’s Afterword: Sorry for the inactivity, to compensate I released 3 chapters at the same time!
So as for the laptop goal I talked about before, it seems that the budget/goal I set before was not enough mainly because the price range laptops around that goal were all phased out / out of stock. With that said, only the available ones are at around $1000. I need $400 more to reach that so I hope you guys can support me on that using the ko-fi button below. The laptop I would be buying would be used for both my studies, translations and other future endeavours. I want a long-lasting one that should be usable for at least 6 years to get it’s worth (Mhm yes, 3rd world country living standards). Thank you all in advance for those who would donate! Reading the chapters without adblock too also helps~
