- Halloween Party 3 (The Feast of Witch and Knight) [Shinya’s POV]
“Trick or treat! If you don’t give me sweets, I’ll play tricks on you~”
“Trick me please, Beni-oneesama!!”
“I have sweets though, why does everyone keep choosing mischief?”
Shu in her zombie make-up is pampering Beni with cat ears. I’m sorry, but the zombie make-up she applied to her face is so realistic that I’m seriously losing my appetite. But still, Shu is so pathetic that she dares to choose mischief. Well, she’s the genus after all.
After the meal, we decided to darken the room and watch a horror movie while eating the snacks in the witch pot that everyone had brought. They say that the feeling of fear is a force that attracts evil spirits, although it’s not as scary as the movie theater, but Beni’s room is a bit scary with its skull decorations and such.
“This looks pretty good. I wonder if I could put some of the sweets that Shinya brought in the witch pot?”
“Sure, they’re cookies, so they’ll fit.”
“It’s not fair that only the Black Dragon Knight is getting attention! Please include the sweets that I brought too.”
“You shouldn’t mix chocolate in the chocolate pot, you’ll confuse things.”
“Both of you, be quiet. I can’t hear the movie. And call it a witch pot instead of a chocolate pot.”
Beni said in disgust as we were making a fuss. Beni’s voice made Shu, who had been pouring a large amount of whiskey bonbon into the pot, shudder a little. If she’d just shut her mouth up, she’d be cute… No, she’s not cute, she’s a zombie. We concentrated on the movie while eating sweets. I looked at Beni sitting next to me and she was looking at the screen with a complicated expression on her face. Shu is a zombie so I don’t know what expression she makes. I probably can’t keep my hopes up for the classic “get scared + hug me” combo. We watched a movie while we were still eating the sweets in the witch pot. There’s a hint of some alcohol in it . Maybe it’s because Shu put a lot of whiskey bonbon in it, but I wonder if it would make a weak drinker drunk. No, I’ve never had a drink before.
The screen goes dark and it looks like a ghost is about to appear.
Shu suddenly hugged me. With a zombie face… I screamed because Shu’s face was far scarier than the movie. If you suddenly get hugged by a zombie from the darkness, you’ll definitely be scared, right? It feels soft, but I’m not happy now.
“Hey, get away from me already.”
No reply, just a corpse. No, she’s alive. No way… I’ve never seen someone faint from fear before. I patted her on the cheek, but she didn’t respond.
“Hey, Beni, can I borrow your bed? I’ll put Shu to bed…”
Eh, what? Beni raised her voice in a way she usually does not. Moreover, her lips are pouting. What’s wrong? Did I do something bad? By the way, Beni with fake cat ears is so cute.
“Hey, Shinya, haven’t you been spending all your time on Shu? You’re hugging each other together… You should notice me too.”
“Beni, what’s wrong with you?”
Then, Beni looked at me sweetly and begged to be pampered. Her unusual behavior made me speak in honorifics. The scene in the movie was just as the characters were doing something naughty. Maybe these guys are going to die… No, that’s not important right now.
“Be my lap pillow as I did the other day. Then I’ll forgive you.”
“Well, that’s fine…”
Then Beni lay down on my lap. For a moment, I smelled the usual sweet smell and liquor. Hm? The smell of alcohol? Don’t tell me that Beni got drunk on whiskey bonbon and witch pot? Isn’t she too weak with alcohol? I looked at the box of whiskey bonbons that Shu had brought and found that they were already gone.
“Beni, how many whiskey bonbons have you eaten?”
“I wonder if you remember how many loaves of bread you’ve eaten in your lifetime.”
[ED/N: Yes, that’s a JoJo reference.]
I started to sound like some kind of villain who schemed to freeze the time forever. Stop it already! The time-stopping stuff suits me so much. I’m dying to say it myself.
“A-are you perhaps drunk?”
“I don’t know~ I fweel a little bit dwizzy, but it fweels good~ Your knees are kinda stiff… So this is a boy’s lap~”
You’re completely drunk, right? I mean, don’t you just gouge my knee head…! My inner black dragon power is going out of control. No, it’s really bad. Do you want me to count the prime numbers? No, I can calm down by looking at Shu’s zombie face. I’m relieved that the power of my inner black dragon has subsided.
But it seems that Beni becomes a spoiled girl when she gets drunk. Since she’s drunk, I’ll test something.
“Hey, Beni, can you say ‘nya’ for a minute.”
“I don’t mind though. ‘Nyaaa~’. Is this okay?”
She’s really into it! I guess I’ll get on a bit of a roll.. Damn, she’s cute! But calm down, My Black Dragon!
“W-well then, this time try to say ‘nyaa’ at the end of every word.”
“Okay nyaa~. Is this okay nyaa~?”
“O-ohhh!!! This is bad, my black dragon is going out of control.”
What a destructive display of power! Is this the enchantment magic of the Witch of Underworld?! This is too much! But Beni really seems to be insane, so I ask her what I’ve been wondering.
“S-say Beni, what do you think about me?”
“Why… a reliable ally that I can always count on… and we are good friends nyaa~. I’m really happy to have met Shinya again nyaa~. I’m grateful that I was able to make new friends and have a good time with him as soon as I transferred nyaa~.”
“It’s kinda embarrassing if you say it like that… Well, I’m glad to hear you say so.”
“Hmm. That’s why I like you nyaa~”
What, did Beni just say that she likes me? No, wait, there are many kinds of liking someone. Maybe she said it like “I like you as an ally” or something like that. It doesn’t necessarily mean as a lover. But can’t I ask her now? I look at Beni’s defenseless profile. Her face looks as if she really trusts me…
I decided not to ask, I chose not to ask the decisive thing. If I kept asking, Beni would answer while drunk. It means that I didn’t ask her in the proper way. Would I be thrilled to hear her answer in the wrong way? Of course the answer is obviously no. As a knight of the Black Dragon and also as a man, I would never do that.
“The food was delicious, Beni.”
She fell asleep when I spoke to her. I guess it was a good thing, I didn’t have a heart attack. But what am I going to do? I’m stuck in the middle of nowhere. While I was at a loss, I saw a pair of eyes staring at me through the door. Who was it? Did an evil spirit really come?
“Oh, I got caught. I came to pick up what I left behind, but what I found was interesting, so…”
There she was, Beni’s sister who seemed to be taking a video on her phone. Oh, wait. How much did she hear?
“Oh, you can keep going. At your age, a harem is a frightening prospect.”
“No, there are various reasons for this! I mean it! Please help me!”
“You don’t really have to worry about it… I think you’re a wyvern rather than a black dragon.”
Where is this person looking? As expected, I felt bad about being in a place where two women were sleeping, so I let them sleep on the bed and I decided to go home. I left them to clean up since I can’t mess around with someone’s stuff without permission. And so my Halloween was over after seeing Beni’s cosplay and the cute Beni. But I wonder how she felt when she was drunk…
『”Hey, Beni, can you say ‘nya’ for a minute.”』
『”I don’t mind though. ‘Nyaaa~’. Is this okay?”』
『”W-well then, this time try to say ‘nyaa’ at the end of every word.”』
『”Okay nyaa~. Is this okay nyaa~?”』
『”O-ohhh!!! This is bad, my black dragon is going out of control.”』
『”S-say, Beni, what do you think about me?”』
『”Why… a reliable ally that I can always count on… and we are good friends nyaa~. I’m really happy to have met Shinya again nyaa~. I’m grateful that I was able to make new friends and have a good time with him as soon as I transferred nyaa~.”』
『”It’s kinda embarrassing if you say it like that… Well, I’m glad to hear you say so.”』
『”Hmm. That’s why I like you nyaa~”』
When I woke up, Shinya had gone home before I knew it, and for some reason I had sent Shu, who was sleeping next to me, to her home to finish cleaning up and catch my breath, but I was absolutely mortified when I saw the video on the phone that was shown at me by my sister who had come home. W-what is this…? This is a cursed video…
“S-sis, this… this must be a joke, right?”
“This is all true nya.~ A non-fiction nyaa~”
I turned red and screamed. Well, it’s true that my memory was a little fuzzy from the middle of the conversation, and I had noticed that Shinya’s line saying he was sorry for coming home early was kind of distant..But…! Eh, what the hell is this?! “Nyaa”?! I’m not that kind of an idiot!!
“Hey, wait a minute! I’ve already confessed to him?!”
“Well, isn’t it okay? Both of you are already dating, right? Your boyfriend seemed happy, and I think he liked you better.”
“Stop with thaaaaaaat!”
Halloween… What a terrifying day… This must be truly the work of evil spirits. It must be my punishment for trying to get the power of the dead… if it isn’t for my pride, I will definitely die with shame.
“Sis, I’m going to go see an exorcist.”
“No can do, in your case, it’s best to stay away from alcohol.”
“Oh by the way, can I send this video to your boyfriend?”
And so my Halloween was over. The next day, I asked Shinya not to go to school with me because I didn’t have the courage to look at his face… I hope he didn’t feel bad… but I was too embarrassed to look at his face unless I gave it some time…
How was the Halloween party edition? The fact that Beni is a cat has nothing to do with the fact that there was a Tamamo Cat at the FGO event. I don’t think ‘nyaa’ is cute when I play the game.
If you think it’s interesting or if you think Beni is cute, I’d appreciate it if you could give me a review, rating, or feedback.
I’ll do my best to make a work that will get reviews and comments. Thank you for your continued support.
Sorry for the late upload. Currently I’m going to have an OJT this month. So expect some late uploads under my name.
