Chapter 2: Can’t Break It Off
Ah, I’m so happy…
I’m so happy that I cried a little. As I savored this happiness, I lied down on the garden lawn. That’s right, lied down.
I happily rolled about. Ah, this is so fun!
No one will scold me even if I rolled on the lawn! I haven’t been able to do this since getting engaged! This is the best!
After rolling around, my stomach grumbled.
I got up, and without caring about the grass that covered my clothes, I called out to the maid inside the house.
“Lily, I’m going fishing!”
“Have a good time.”
Lily’s a maid who’s been attending to me ever since I was small. She always nagged me about something when I was still engaged, but now that I’m not, she lets me be.
Well, it’s thanks to my promise with my brother.
A short time after getting engaged, unable to stand the harshness of the princess training, I asked my brother to promise me one thing.
“If Clark-sama considers a partner aside from me, you’ll let me be.”
Even my brother pitied me as I endured everyday with a face that looked like I was about to die. He unwillingly agreed.
From there, with that as my only goal, I persevered.
As I wished for him to look at someone else aside from me, my brother would come along and try to convince me otherwise while spouting absurd lies, showing his true intentions.
And then at last! The other day! The moment I’ve been dreaming of came!
Thank you, Burikko. To be honest, I thought you were an annoying woman at first, but now I think of you as less annoying. I hate women that’re bad tempered, but if it’s that woman, I could probably get along with her. No wait, maybe I can’t since she’s really annoying.
I arrived at the river earlier than expected if I had skipped instead. I excitedly attached my bait.
When something bites, I’m grilling it with salt.
It’s nice that I can freely do as I want, even my beloved fishing.
Hehehe, I’ve been smiling ever since coming here.
In the first place, I’m not suited to be queen. For a long time, I loved to run, had a foul mouth, climbed trees, loved nature more than dressing up, had a foul mouth, and had a foul mouth.
Because being inside this big, natural world has made me as happy as I can be.
‘Being able to do something I’ve been prohibited from doing so ever since I was seven years old is wonderful… ‘ While I thought that, something bit. It’s a salmon. Grilling with salt is definitely the best. With the tools I brought, I took out its insides, skewered, and sprinkled salt on it.
If I went out to gather dead branches and started a fire, then that would complete this. Ahh, I would love to live in the wild and figure out how to live like that. Just by myself though.
“That looks fun.”
Suddenly hearing a voice, I looked up.
“Oh my, Clark-sama.”
Before I knew it, my former fiancé came closer to me.
“Is there anything I can help you with?”
As I asked, I brought the grilled salmon to my mouth. So good, this was wonderfully grilled. As expected of me.
“Is that your lunch?”
“Yes. It is delicious.”
“Did you catch it yourself?”
“That is correct, I have confidence in my fishing skills, tree climbing skills, and my running speed.”
Since I won’t get scolded anymore if I talk while I’m eating, I spoke with food in my mouth. Because I finished eating the fish in the blink of an eye, I attached another bait to catch a fish. Hehehehe, what am I going to catch next–?
As I started humming a song, I felt someone sit down beside me. Clark-sama was sitting beside me.
I forgot about him for a minute.
“And, is there anything I can help you with?”
“No, not really?”
This person came here for no reason… I don’t get what he means by that.
“You’re really lively right now.”
“Yes, since I am now free to do as I please.”
“You definitely haven’t changed one bit.”
I shouted my question in a loud voice, removing my gaze from the fishing rod, and looked at Clark-sama.
“Do you know why you got engaged to me?”
“No, I do not, since I had no interest in it.”
At those words, Clark-sama made a slightly depressed face. Because I didn’t have a single ounce of interest until now, I didn’t notice, but this person is very beautiful.
“You fell down the tree.”
“Ten years ago, you came to the castle with the Duke and climbed trees in the castle courtyard. By chance, I passed by at that time, and you fell on top of me.”
Back then, I would accompany my father to the castle for his work. I had a favorite tree in the castle courtyard. While my father was working, I frequently climbed it and played there.
On that note, because I often slept on top of the tree, I sometimes fell down, so I don’t know which one he’s talking about.
“I was surprised, and as you were sitting down on top of me, you smiled.”
I caught another salmon. I quickly took care of it as I listened to his story.
“You were pretty cute.”
I stabbed it with a skewer.
“I proposed engagement after having fallen in love with you at first sight.”
“It’s cause of you!”
“Aren’t you happy with how things turned out now?”
“I’m not! Because of you, I spent these ten years in pain, day after day!”
I started a fire and grilled the fish.
“But even so, you didn’t tell me clearly that you didn’t want to be engaged and routinely sent women my way.”
“I’ve been exposed!”
As I aimed for breaking off the engagement, I sent him multiple honey traps. Various women that had big breasts, small breasts, beautiful butts, slender, and so forth. But because he wasn’t falling for those, thinking that he was a lolicon, or liked attractive, mature ladies, I sent those as well. Recently, as a test, I even sent him a man. But not once did he fall for it. He has very specific tastes huh!
“Ah, by the way, we’re still engaged.”
Clark-sama got up, and brushed off the sand from his pants.
Wait, I heard something terrible just now.
“I’ll be coming back to pick you up soon, so be as carefree as you want until then.”
After declaring something dreadful, Clark-sama briskly left.
I tried my best. Since I did this in the middle of the night, if there are any mistakes, please free free to point them out. Especially with grammar or spelling.
Also, she speaks a little more politely to him until the moment he reveals to her that he applied for an engagement because he fell in love with her. Hopefully that comes through with how I translated it. On the other hand, Clark’s been talking to her informally this whole time.
