Story of a Country Girl Reincarnated as a Villainess Trying To Avoid a Bad End ~I Tried To Become Stronger Than the Last Boss Because I Don’t Want to Die~ – Chapter 32

Chapter 32: Date Invitation

“Is Billy-kun always here?”

“Most of the time, yeah. I’m usually here when there’s no class.”

“Do you like books?”

“It’s not so much that I like them, it’s more about studying. This place houses books from all over the world. It’s the perfect place to learn.”

“I see. . .Billy-kun is a serious person.”

She asks questions with a lively rhythm and subtly compliments him at the end.

Anyone would be happy to receive compliments.

Especially if they are innocent and heartfelt words.

That was flares specialty.

At least, that’s what I thought as I read the original work.

“All the books stacked here are about magic, right?”

“That’s right.”

“They look difficult. . .I’m not good at reading this kind of thing, so I wouldn’t understand even if I read them.”

“It’s just a matter of getting used to it. If you read it a little at a time and gain knowledge, you’ll eventually understand. I didn’t understand it at first either.”

“Wow~ Billy-kun, who taught you magic?”

It began.

Unconsciously, she asked the question that hit the mark.

Billy’s expression momentarily darkened.

Just for a moment, then he quickly returned to his usual self.

“My dad and mom taught me.”

“Your parents were mages too, Billy-kun.”

“Yeah. . .they were amazing mages.”

“You want to become a mage like your parents, don’t you, Billy-kun?”

“It’s not that I want to. . .I have to become one.”

“Huh?”

Billy flipped through the pages of the book with a serious expression.

Then he muttered quietly.

“I’m living just for that purpose.”

“Billy-kun?”

“It’s nothing. From my perspective, I think you’re the amazing one, you know? I’ve never seen holy power before. It really exists.”

“Holy power. . .?”

“What’s wrong? Don’t you know about your own power?”

From here, Flare’s power is touched upon.

In the original work, it was Billy who taught her about her power.

It is also a role given to him as the one with the most knowledge.

Thanks to this conversation, Flare became interested in her own power.

However, that’s the story from the original work.

She already knew about it from me.

For what purpose her power resides.

For whose defeat the power is intended.

“Since it’s not magic, it’s a power that’s far from me. I’m interested, though.”

“That’s a difficult topic. I don’t even know about normal magic. Oh, by the way, I heard an interesting rumor in town.”

“A rumor?”

“Yes. There’s an accurate fortune teller who seems to be able to see the future. Is there such a magic?”

“Seeing the future. . .No, I’ve never heard of it.”

Billy shows interest and looks puzzled.

He was easily interested in stories about magic.

This is a setup.

Just when he showed interest, Flare invites him.

“If you’re interested, would you like to go see the fortune teller after school?”

“The fortune teller?”

“Yes. I’m a little interested, but I’m scared to go alone. . .”

While saying that, she looks at Billy with hopeful eyes.

Few men can resist this gaze.

However, Billy is not very interested in anything other than magic.

That’s why she invited him.

“Seeing the future. . .huh. I’m certainly interested.”

He will definitely accept.

He’s not the type to silently back down in the face of unknown magic.

“Alright. Is today after school okay?”

“Yes! Thank you very much.”

Billy seemed a little embarrassed by Flare’s grateful smile.

I was satisfied just watching the two of them interact.

“Now, it’s our job from here on out.”

“I know. You really are a demanding princess.”

◇◇◇

“How did it go?”

“It was perfect. You led him well.”

“Yes! Thanks to Slayer-san’s guidance!”

“I just taught you the tricks.”

Flare, who had returned from Billy’s side, was jumping joyfully.

I only conveyed the information.

I think it was Flare’s own power that led him well.

As expected of the protagonist.

She was good at capturing the hearts of heroes.

“I’ll be counting on you after school too.”

“Yes! So I’ll guide Billy-kun to the fortune teller right?”

“Yes, leave the rest to us.”

“Got it! I’ll do my best to escort Billy-kun!”

Flare showed a sharp salute.

“You’re really enthusiastic.”

“Of course! I haven’t been very useful until now.”

Before I could deny it, she continued.

“And. . .I want to solve Billy-kun’s problems quickly. It’s so painful. . .and sad.”

“. . .I see.”

The problem he carries, the shackles he has placed on his heart.

It is. . .the heaviest and most painful past among the characters in the story.

◇◇◇

After school, the fateful moment arrived.

Flare took Billy to the town.

“It’s this way!”

“. . .Are you sure this is the right place?”

Guided by Flare, Billy looked uneasy.

And no wonder.

The two were walking in an alley far away from the bustling streets.

There were no people around, and there wasn’t a single shop.

“Are we… on the right path?”

“It’s okay! Probably.”

“Probably. . .”

He remembered that Flare was directionally challenged and looked around anxiously.

“A shop in a place like this. . .”

“There is one!”

“――!”

Flare pointed to a sign that read “Fortune Telling House.”

With a cliché name and a creepy exterior.

With the rundown appearance, the shop had you could tell it wasn’t thriving.

“So this is. . .”

“It seems so. The name matches too.”

“. . .Well since we came all this way, Let’s just check it out.”

Out of curiosity, Billy opened the door.

As he opened the creaky door, a woman was waiting inside.

She was hiding her face like a fortune teller and had a unique atmosphere.

“Welcome, lovely customer today.”

The fortune teller laughed eerily.

He didn’t notice.

That this fortune teller was actually me, Slayer in disguise.
