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 5

Chapter 5: Annul the engagement

The room calmed down, and it was time for the body measurements.

What they’re looking at here is the power of magic.

They want to see how much magic you can handle, no matter what kind of magic you use.

In the book, Slayer demonstrated her water magic, which she was good at.

However, Flare’s presence just before had a big impact, and she didn’t get much attention.

I wonder if it’s okay to be casual.

Anyway, everyone’s head was preoccupied with Flare.

The girl who controls holy power.

I don’t mind if they focus on that.

I’ll just show them what I can do.

“Aqua Launcher.”

A water magic that compresses generated water and releases it at high pressure.

I held out my right hand, creating a sphere of water in front of me, and fired it at the target prepared for me.

I thought I was being careful with the power.

But I realized it immediately after firing it.

“Oh…”

Aqua Launcher not only destroyed the target but also pierced and crushed the wall behind it.

“What kind of power is that…”

“Slayer…?”

“…”

I went too far.

Or rather, I trained too much.

I won’t know how strong I’ve become until I measure it objectively like this.

Unintentionally drawing attention, I reflected on myself.

◇◇◇

“…sigh.”

After the entrance ceremony was over, on my way home.

I let out a deep sigh.

I failed spectacularly all of a sudden.

I was supposed to finish without standing out.

“I don’t want to be noticed weirdly…”

There’s nothing I can do about what I’ve done.

I’ll be more careful from now on.

While thinking that, I heard footsteps approaching.

“Slayer! Are you already leaving?”

“…”

The one who called out to me was Alma.

According to the book, I was supposed to talk to Flare after the physical measurements were done.

But that time had already passed.

Although it wasn’t mentioned in the book, she came to me anyway.

I’ll do my best.

But

I suddenly thought.

Is it okay to be more careful starting from tomorrow?

Since I’ve already failed and attracted attention, staying quiet from now on would be meaningless.

So maybe it’s better to take the offensive.

“That magic earlier was amazing! When did you get such power?”

“…Yes, that’s right.”

“Slayer?”

In a few days, he will break off our engagement.

The reason is obvious: he fell in love at first sight with Flare.

He argued that he found true love or something like that.

The characters adore him, but honestly, I’m not too fond of Alma.

Primarily because he once abandoned his fiancée.

That grudge pushes me forward.

If the future is already determined

“Alma, if you want to break off the engagement, I don’t mind.”

“Huh…”

I’ll push him away myself.

Alma was left speechless by my sudden statement.

But he quickly regains his composure and asks:

“What are you talking about? Why all of a sudden?”

“You fell in love with that girl, didn’t you? I can tell without you saying it.”

“――!”

Because it hit the mark, he made a face wondering how I noticed.

He’s such an easy-to-read guy.

It’s refreshing, really.

“If you like her, just go after her. It’s that simple.”

“S-Slayer…this is, um…”

“Don’t deny it. You were gazing at her pretty intensely when you met her.”

“Uh, no, I…”

Alma’s inability to retort amazed me.

If he had even the slightest bit of affection for me, he would have said something in response.

But he didn’t.

Which means there was never any genuine interest from the beginning.

If that’s the case, let’s just end it.

This fake relationship of ours.

“Goodbye, Alma. You should try your best to win her over.”

“Slayer!”

“You and I are strangers. So please don’t talk to me anymore.”

I turned my back on him and started walking away.

I didn’t care what expression he had on his face or if he tried to stop me.

I had no interest in that anymore.

I will live.

And to live, I will cut off anyone who is unnecessary.

Having any involvement with them is the last thing I need.

Let the battle against the Demon King happen somewhere else.

I have no intention of getting involved.

But if I do get involved

At that moment——

“I’ll defeat even the Demon King.”

To avoid destruction in the end.

That is why I have become strong.
