Chapter 26: Childhood friend does not give up (give it up).
A meeting with the emperor, Taizo Takayashiki.
The day after that.
I was asked by the head of the drama club to be a special advisor and was present at the stage rehearsal.
The title of the play was “Male Cinderella.”
It was a “Cinderella” with the genders reversed.
The plot is that Cindeleo, not Cinderella, born into an unhappy family, overcomes the bullying of her stepfather and stepbrothers, grows up, recovers her “true self” with the help of a magician, and is united with a beautiful princess and becomes happy.
The script, written by the director, was quite a read.
There were parts that overlapped with my own.
For example, the stepfather says to Cindeleo,
“Listen, Cindeleo, you mustn’t stand out.”
“You are to live in the shadows, a complement to your stepbrothers.”
“You’re not good-looking, you’re plain, you’re gloomy, and you have no talent.”
“You know what? At least be a complement, be useful to your stepbrothers…”
I’ve been told similar things all my life.
That pig and her grandfather told me the same thing.
I had been taught this way by a family with more wealth and power than any other family in this country.
“Kazu, you are Rua’s shadow.
If you can remain in Rua’s shadow, I will eventually accept you as my son-in-law.”
“As my successor, you will lead the Teikai Group together with Rua.”
“Until then, you will remain in the shadows, and be subordinate to Rua.”
“Is that clear? Never show your talent to others.”
Now I know that the old man’s words were a lie.
Even if what he said about making me into his son-in-law was true, the real power of the Teikai group should be in the hands of the pig herself.
That old grandfather fool will surely do so.
I will simply be put on watch as a “sow” for the pig to produce an heir.
I don’t want that future anymore.
I am free.
I’ve been incapacitated up until now, and I’m going to do as much as I want.
Just as I was sinking into a sea of thoughts, a voice called out to me.
The director rushed to me with a look of excitement on her face.
“Well! I’m so glad I asked you to do this! Thank you so much!”
“It’s obvious! That thing!”
The director pointed to the stage.
There stood a shining, beautiful boy.
Dressed in the same sparkling costume as in the performance, Isami Shirasagi stood in the center of the stage.
Isami Shirasagi was a prince in every sense of the word.
Her behavior is graceful and refined.
Her clear voice permeated every nook and cranny of the student hall.
The entire stage seemed to glow with her mere presence.
“He is like a different person than he was yesterday! His facial expressions and movements are no longer stiff and he was free to stretch out.
How could he change so much in just one day? What kind of magic did you use, Suzuki?”
“I can’t believe it’s magic.
This is his power.”
I said that with all my heart.
That “Ii-chan” who used to cry all the time in the dojo–.
I was as proud as if it was me.
“I have a favor to ask you, boss.”
“Anything you ask.”
“Shirasagi-kun is quite shy, especially when it comes to being seen naked.
I think it would help his mental stability if he changes clothes separately from the other male members of the club, and if you take care of his costume measurements for him.”
“What? That much is easy!”
The drama club is full of good people, including the director, and I am sure they will take care of her.
Next month’s performance should go well.
The audience will be glued to the prince who has awakened to his true form.
Once we were alone, the prince turned into a princess.
“I love you, Kazunii!”
I held her soft body against my chest as she jumped into my arms.
She is a beautiful boy on stage, but when I touch her smooth skin like this, she is unmistakably a girl.
“Oi, oi, Ii-chan.
Where are you going to get dressed?”
I was called into the waiting room to help her get out of her costume.
Ii-chan’s cheeks turned pink and she kept her long eyelashes down.
“……because I wanted to be alone with Kazunii ……”
I don’t feel bad about being told by such a cute girl, though.
As usual, my thoughts are heavy.
“The other day, I got a message from Rua.
The message said, “Let’s break up!”.
Thanks to Kazunii!”
As expected of that pig.
It seems that she quickly disposed of her “fake boyfriend” who was no longer of any use to her.
“So, I’m free now.
Will you take me as your wife right now?”
“Hey! That’s enough”
I lightly poked her chestnut-colored head.
Ii-chan stuck out her tongue and replied cutely, “Yes.”
“Then help me get dressed.
I want you to unzip my back.”
“Is that okay?”
“It’s hard for me to do it by myself.
I’ll show you how to do it …….”
Ii-chan turns around.
As I was told, I slowly pull down the zipper on the costume.
The dazzling white backside and the sarashi wrapped tightly around it jumped out.
I was reminded of the “pappan” I had seen through the frosted glass yesterday.
It was impossible to hold it down without wrapping it around her like this.
“I’ve got it down.
Can you do the rest by yourself?”
“No, I can’t.
Take off the sash, too.”
Can’t you do that much?”
He, or rather she, looked forward and scratched her head.
“Summer vacation, let’s go to the pool together.”
“Mou, I’m not the same person I was back then.
I want you to see how I’ve grown up as a girl,…….”
Like Amane and President Kocho.
There seem to be a lot of aggressive girls around me.
If I wanted to be popular, I should have been a more normal boy.
They are too cute.
[Posted Almost Everyday] Princess Rua cuts it down! ～Be aware~
[I’m sorry, I started with a big stupid sigh.]
“This is Rua, aka Princess Rua.]
[Well, lately, things haven’t been going the way I want them to.]
I’m talking about that “girl friend” I told you about the other day.]
[We’re both very much in love, but there’s just too much in the way.]
[There is that annoying bangs’ girl, and there is that silver-haired President.]
[And the little chestnut-colored guy I took advantage of is useless.]
[Even Grandpa said, “We’ll just have to wait and see.”]
“Meanwhile, it’s already summer vacation.]
[And since I don’t have school, I won’t be able to see her!]
[……No, she’s not going to miss me right?]
[She’s going to be so lonely, she’s going to cry.]
[Well, I, Rua, will do something about it!]
[The love …… friendships we’ve had since childhood are to be cherished.]
[……I’m not going to let it go on like this ……]
[……Any woman who approaches Kazu should be slaughtered.
[So, that’s my complaint delivery for today.]
