Chapter 16

Bertia 17 Years Old (6)



Part 4/4

Translated by LynneSuzuran & Senhiro


“Even you said it yourself without any hesitation. It seems that my prediction was correct. Even before now, ever since you met her, you always seemed to be having fun to some extent. I felt relieved upon seeing that. When you asked for a birthday present on your own for the very first time, I celebrated it with a toast together with the queen. That’s why, we’ve avoided the arrival of the worst case scenario, but… Since you noticed it yourself, sure enough, it’s time to talk about it.”


My father who was drinking the Kiwis wine was indeed in a good mood, and I could easily feel that he was truly delighted at the [emotion] and [precious existence] that I discovered.


“Father had a lot of worries that I didn’t realize, huh?”

“Nah, it’s natural for a parent to worry over their child’s future. That being the case, I will be receiving a lot of filial piety from my child from now on.”

“Are you declaring that you will foist some official matters on to me?”

“It’s a parent’s privilege to have such an excellent son.”

“For the time being, you’ll be doing your best to make sure Bertia is by my side, right?”

“The fate of the country is in her hands, huh?”

“If she is by my side, I will even be able to enjoy managing the boring official matters.”

“…For the time being, I will increase the number of people guarding Lady Bertia.”

“I like observing her lively, free and uncontrolled self, so don’t become too conspicuous, and please just stealthily keep watch from the shadows.”

“I will take that into account.”


And just like that, my father and I made a toast again and drank the night away.

Speaking of which, it went without saying that my father was the one who got drunk first and fell asleep, and was fetched by my mother.

Bertia looked up dubiously at me as I was engrossed in the memory of the conversation with my father for quite some time.


Noticing that, I smiled as I lightly shook my head, “It’s nothing.”

It’d be easy to tell Bertia what I’d heard from my father about the royal family’s bloodline.

It’s already been decided that she would become the crown princess—to be one of the royal family members, so there’s no problem at all to tell her about the royal family’s secret.


However, I don’t intend to tell that story to Bertia.

[I don’t know what I would do if she were to leave me because I inherited the dark fate of the royal family’s bloodline.]

Come to think of it, we’re talking about what a kind person she is. It would surely be able to bind her to me more than ever.

However, I feel repulsed about binding her to me with something that I didn’t choose with my own will, such as bloodline.



I dared to act on my own volition and thoughts, and wanted to make her choose to hold me in her heart as well.

Besides, above all, isn’t it more romantic to say, ”Because it’s fated” rather than saying, “Resign yourself to your bloodline”?

Well, if in the worst case scenario she actually wants to leave me, even if she says, “Your bloodline is insane” I might still be able to forcibly bind her to me, but… I don’t expect things to fall into place like that, so I don’t feel that it is necessary.

Rather than turning her expressions gloomy by placing unnecessary and pointlessly heavy shackles on her and clipping her wings, she’d be more of her charming self if I left her with enough room to do as she pleases while not even realizing she’s been captured.


I do not wish for a puppet that will do as I say.

I like her being unpredictable at times and behaving recklessly, as she was like a box of surprises, and I want her to be like that all the time.

The one who caught my interest is Bertia.

My most precious [special being] is also Bertia.

The one who will become my restraint is also Bertia.

She has drawn my interest thus far, so why don’t I have her take responsibility and be by my side until this heart of mine stops beating?



With her by my side, I will find my days enjoyable and happy.

If I am happy, I think that I can do my best to make the citizens happy, too.

Then, my happiness and the citizens’ happiness will lead to Bertia’s happiness.

More than producing such a beneficial cycle, it also doesn’t harm anyone.

Don’t you think?



“I’m looking forward to the wedding, okay? I want to live with you as soon as possible.”

And then, I’m sure that every day will be colorful and fun.


“W-w-wedding?! I-I-I’m also looking forward to it!!”

Bertia looked just like a small animal, bright red face and restlessly roaming gaze had her looking. I can’t help but think she’s cute.


“It feels so long until your graduation.”

“T-that isn’t true!! It will surely be here in the blink of an eye as we’re preparing for the ceremony!! I-I will also feel lonely not being able to see Cecil-sama every day, though…”


…Because of the difference in our grade, we originally shouldn’t be able to meet every day, but it’s better for me to not say this comment out loud, right?


“I will do my best for the bridal training, lots, lots more than the time I’ve spent training to become a splendid villainess up until now!!”

“Yes, I will also attend the bridegroom training so that I will be able to become a good husband.”



For the time being, should I start with silencing the neighboring country that is like an annoying insect buzzing in my ears?

I obtained various useful intel from Bertia’s information and the information that was collected during Marquis Noches and Kulgan’s infiltration, so it shouldn’t be too difficult.1


After that, that’s right… In order to turn Bertia into the finest bride, shall I begin one or two operations to increase the budget for her dress and such?

I do not want my cute bride to face any hardships, after all.


“Even if Cecil-sama doesn’t train, you are still a fantastic gentleman!! The best bridegroom!!”


What shall I do with this adorable thing who insistently said so with both of her hands clasped together?

…Kuro, could you possibly hide your gaze that says, “Eh~, this guy isn’t that great, though?”, a little more?

I fulfill anything I set my mind to, okay?


…Zeno, can you stop whispering, “Please just don’t overkill,” as if you can read my mind? Moreover, don’t nonchalantly change [do] to [kill], okay?2 I can tell by the nuance, okay?


Just what the heck do you think of me as?

Hmm? The fearful demon king? …I will give you a bit of my educational guidance later on, so please come to the office.


“I’m happy to hear Tia say that, but I can’t let you be the only one to work hard. I will also work hard so that I can become a good king as promised.”



When I tried to kiss Bertia’s forehead, whose eyes had become moist with tears from feeling deeply moved… Kuro’s tail interrupted.

I wish you could just let this much slide, though…

Since it couldn’t be helped, I caught the tail and warded it off, then I nimbly kissed Bertia’s lips.






The tail’s fur that was inside my grip immediately fluffed up, but I paid no mind to it.

Bertia tightly hugged Kuro, who was on her lap, as if she was hugging a doll, her eyes widened into perfect saucers and she flushed bright red from head to toe.



“My adorable Tia. I truly never tire of watching you. I will keep observing you from now to forever.”



As soon as I whispered in a sweet voice that even I found to be too sweet and gave myself heartburn, Bertia reached her limit and screamed.

She was trying to get down from my lap right away, but of course I tightly embraced her, refusing to let her go.


As she became panicked and started to act suspiciously, she muttered some things that I couldn’t understand, such as, “I-is this the so-called doting route?!”, “The doting route is so incredible!!”, but since it was interesting, I only observed her just like usual.


Thus, my observation record of her would, from now… and probably until death, continue on.

  1. The inflitration was mentioned in chapter 12, to investigate several novles and their crimes, in case you forgot about it.
  2. The previous line was やる時はやるよ (yaru toki wa yaru yo), which roughly translates to “when I do something, I really do it.” So Zeno effectively changed Cecil’s line to mean “when I kill someone, I make sure they’re dead” hahaha.

  1. Phour

    Ok… I feel like I’m gonna get cavities from this chapter. It’s too sweet! *Braces self for huge dental bill* Bring on the omake episodes!

    • LynneSuzuran

      It will be scary if sweetness from reading can get you cavities XD

  2. kirindas

    Woo!! What a sweet end to the main story!
    Thanks for your hard work!

    • LynneSuzuran

      Yup, but we’ll have more sweetness in the extra chapters XD

  3. Cipher

    Thanks for the chapter.

    Kuro is the last boss that Cecil has to face XD

    • Romashk

      I feel like it’s an impossible task even Cecil will have a hard time completing.

      • Andy

        But, the android prince is undeterred; He’s is already making his move against. It seems to have a formidable force, I feel a little pity for the poor final boss…. A moment of silence for our cute Kuro…

        • LynneSuzuran

          Anyone here for Kuro x Zeno? Not sure if spirits can get together, hahaha!

          • Anastasia

            ME! I started shipping them after a scene where Zeno carried Kuro in the manga, it was adorable >.<
            I ship them almost as much as I ship their masters together : )

          • LynneSuzuran

            I really have to check that manga scene to squeal once more XD

      • LynneSuzuran

        Hahahah! But after he marries Bertia, then Kuro can’t really ward Cecil off Bertia anymore, right? XD Problem solved, haha!

  4. Elaborate

    to face and hardships -> any

    This was a really good novel! Thanks for translating it!
    I’m looking forward to the omakes…

    I think it was really refreshing to have the prince’s problem be his genetics, and the solution to be [repeating the conditions that previously led to a good outcome], instead of some magical fate thing. Especially in a universe that has magic, it’s a nice subversion!

    • LynneSuzuran

      Oof, thank you for your correction ^^
      Edited it and yeah, I’m also looking forward to the extras ^^

  5. Kvetha

    Thank you very much for the chapter part!

    • LynneSuzuran

      Meanwhile, me after translating this part: “I… need… moreeeee QuQ”
      Hahaha XD
      You’re welcome and yes, the extras will satisfy us more, I think~!

  7. Pink

    Then they kiss……wait they really did kiss…ty for your hardwork

    • LynneSuzuran

      Yes, they did XD
      And you’re welcome ^^

  8. Iwan

    Main story done? Thank you very much :3

    Now, where is my insulin shot?

    • LynneSuzuran

      Yes, main story done, and now we’re on to the extras~
      You can buy insulin shot at the hospitals or pharmacies, lol~!

  9. S.S. Shipwrecker

    Thank you for the chapter! It’s been an absolute joy to read the misadventures of Bertia and Cecil and I am certainly sad that the main story is over, but the bonus chapters should help out.

    • LynneSuzuran

      Yup, I know how you feel, as that was how I felt too after translating this part ^^

  10. martin

    I really hope that the omakes brings Us the weding

    • LynneSuzuran

      Yup, haha! Surely everyone is dying to know how their wedding goes~! XD

  11. Andy

    ¡¡¡Thank YOU!!!

    This chapter was much sweeter than I expected … But I guess it has its logic. I assume that one of the extras will come the wedding/final battle with Kuro? Thank You. For Real.

    • LynneSuzuran

      …Ahaha why final battle with Kuro? XD
      I guess it will be Kuro’s defeat when they get married tho~!

  12. Holow

    In the end Cecil did not give importance to the fact that Bertia knows many things in the world that should be secret or impossible to know for her, just think that she is a little crazy in the head?

    • saihamaru (@saihamaru)

      he know that he himself is an abnormality
      so he just accept that bertia is also an abnormality

    • Hipployta

      He knew it was her other life experience and used those facts to resolve things in story and also experienced the original story via Pi-chan so what do you mean?

      • LynneSuzuran

        Oh yeah, he also saw the scenario Bertia talked about when Pi-chan attacked him ^^

    • Featurless

      Well like they said “love is blind” especially for someone like cecil who need something to drawout his interest

      • LynneSuzuran

        Yup, after finding things they’re interested in, Cecil and the other people like Cecil tend to get obsessed over that thing or someone XD

    • LynneSuzuran

      Didn’t Cecil already know that Bertia had memories of the “scenario” of this world? That was why he was quite frustrated to see Bertia not seeing how everything has already deviated from the scenario she remembered XD

  13. Hipployta

    What a sweet end to the main story. I also enjoy Cecil determining that the original story is NOT his path and making his own way with Bertia.

    • LynneSuzuran

      Yup, that’s so sweet of him indeed XD

  14. carlogv

    This is the end,huh
    All this time Bertia worked hard to achieve the doting route xD
    im waiting for the extras :,)
    itd be great to see their descendance

    • LynneSuzuran

      This is a very late reply, but yup, your wish is granted in the extra 😉

  15. Anastasia

    Thank you so much for working on this translation!
    I had so much fun reading and I’m so happy for Bertia and Cecil. My heart is melting :’) I really hope the omakes will share stories of their future kids in it lol

    • Ligare

      Wait a sec. Will their kids share that gene?

      • LynneSuzuran

        Since it’s hereditary, there is a possibility xD

  16. nut

    I just realized they never ever mentioned her brother ever again

    • LynneSuzuran

      That’s been bugging me as well ;__; kinda wanted to see what will become of her brother!

  17. Nurie

    Thank you SOOO much for translating! This is my favorite (web? light?) novel so far. I’ve read and watched quite a bit for the last month or so, and this, by FAR is my absolute fave. I literally squeed so much in this chapter alone (and all the other times when the fluff gets so intenseee in the previous chapters) and I’m looking forward to the extra chapters!

    I really love seeing how much Cecil loves Bertia and his inner thoughts are just so damn funny. I actually can relate to him a lot (though I tend to relate to the guys rather than the female MCs most of the time lol – especially in otome games) so a lot of the themes in this story actually struck a chord with me.
