The Heroine Ran Away! the Villainous Daughter Has to Break off Her Engagement and Tame Her Watchdog Mage – Chapter 8

𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝟖: 𝐇𝐞𝐫𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐇𝐚𝐬 𝐁𝐞𝐞𝐧 𝐅𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐝

Three days after entering school, I hurriedly went out to the town upon receiving a report from Cid.

Dressed in a deep crimson dress and wearing a wide-brimmed hat, I probably didn’t look like a duke’s daughter.

Cid was in his usual attire, but he had taken off his amethyst spinel brooch and was wearing glasses.

Stop directly stimulating my maiden heart!

Those stylish black-framed glasses have infinite attack power!

Cid, who is too cool for me to look directly at, took me and walked briskly along the main street to a place where commoners gather, a restaurant.

Casually holding hands, my heart is pounding.

Today, I’m going to die.

But Cid, who didn’t notice the slightest bit of my nervousness, arrived near the target lunchbox shop and secretly surveyed it from an alley.

“There she is, milady. That girl over there.”

I also peek my head out from behind the wall, gripping Sid’s arm with both hands as I gaze at the bento shop.

“That girl. . .?”

A girl with beautiful blonde hair tied up with a cheap ribbon, serving customers with a lively and bright smile.

She’s here.

“There’s no mistake, it’s Baron’s daughter Kukrika Larry. . .!”

Unbelievable.

The heroine is selling bentos!!!

According to the report I received from Cid, the heroine, at the age of fifteen, married her childhood friend (a commoner mob) and together they run a bento shop. It’s true that the Baron’s larry  family had debts and didn’t live a noble lifestyle, so it’s not surprising that their daughter would work.

But!

But but!!

Why isn’t she attending the academy and instead opening a bento shop with her childhood friend!?

“Could it be that she’s also a reincarnated person?”

I knew that if she attended school, she would attract the attention of the prince. . .

It can only be seen as her way of avoiding that.

“Ouch! Miss, that hurts.”

“Oh, I’m sorry.”

Before I knew it, I had tightly grabbed Cid’s arm and was about to crush it.

When I quickly let go, Cid vigorously rubbed the area I had grabbed. It seemed to hurt a lot.

“Hey, can we buy lunch at that store?”

“I don’t mind.”

Saying that, Cid gave me a few copper coins.

Oops, I only had silver coins. It’s enough money to buy up all the lunches at the store.

“I’m off!”

“I’ll come too!”

Cid hurriedly chased after me as I dashed out. Once again, my hand was grabbed, and my heart skipped a beat.

“What will you do if we get lost or get kidnapped and you end up beating the culprit to death!?”

Wait a minute. Why is the assumption that I’ll beat someone to death?!

That’s a terrible thing to say.

But I’m happy to be holding hands, so let’s just ignore that part.

In a good mood, I bought lunch directly from the heroine. 

Although it’s called a bento, it’s just a box filled with side dishes and bread, made of wood. The box is not disposable, so when I come to buy again, I bring it back washed, and they put the side dishes inside.

Since it’s my first time, I bought the side dishes along with the box.

“Thank you!!”

“It looks delicious.”

“Yes! I made it!”

How cute.

The heroine had blonde hair and green eyes, and looked like a doll, so cute.

Above all, I thought her energetic and bright smile was lovely.

She has a good personality and can make bento. . .!

I’m a little jealous.

After receiving the bento, I opened it near the fountain where I could see Kukrika.

And then.

I was shocked when I saw the contents.

“This. . .is it nikujaga and tamagoyaki?!”

I’m astonished by the taste of Japanese cuisine, something I’ve never seen before in this world.

She must definitely be a reincarnated person too, Kukrika Larry

“It’s an unusual dish. Maybe it’s a foreign meal.”

Cid peeks in with a curious expression.

I stabbed the tamagoyaki with a fork and gently put it in my mouth.

“Mmm!!”

Th-this is dashimaki tamago?!

I’m screaming inside my head at the exquisite flavor of this mellow kombu dashi. It’s so delicious it’s driving me crazy.

“L-Let’s buy dried kombu on the way back.”

If I remember correctly, the famous one is the laussu-produced kelp from the northern region. It’s expensive, but the Marcus duke House can afford to buy as much as they want.

Alright, I’ll definitely buy it on the way back.

The nikujaga was also undeniably delicious. 

I thought, “Do we really need these mysterious green stems instead of green beans?” But I’m surprised that the taste of the dashi makes me feel so happy.

Cid seems to like it too, saying, “It’s delicious,” as he eats.

Ah, I wish our family’s cook could reproduce this taste. I thought of buying one more on the way back.

And now, having finished my meal, I absentmindedly gaze at Kukurika as if in a dreamlike state.

Kukrika is loved by people of all ages and works briskly.

The young man who seems to be her husband also looks kind, and you can feel that they love each other very much.

“She’s such a good girl. . .”

“Yes, she is. So, what will you do?”

Cid asked tentatively.

He must be referring to my statement about wanting to enroll Kukurika in the academy. It’s like asking, “What’s your plan?”

I slumped down and let out a sigh naturally.

“I can’t possibly ruin such happiness. But. . .I can’t settle for this!”

When I stood up, I headed back to the bento shop.

It’s unfair for her to leave this fate behind before me! Why didn’t she invite me!!

Even though we’re not friends, I got angry.

“Oh? Onee-san, what’s the matter?”

Kukrika looks at me and says with a smile.

Unaware of everything, she serves customers and doesn’t even notice that I’m a villainess. 

I tightly clenched the coins in my hand and said to Kukrika,

“Please give me ten bento boxes.”

“Thank you very much!”

Cid looked at us with a puzzled expression and received the ten bento boxes. 

I smirked and gave her a mischievous smile as I placed a silver coin in her hand. 

It’s frustrating, but this is the most significant annoyance I can inflict right now.

“Oh, customers?!”

Hehehe, she’s flustered. 

Of course, I just gave her more than ten times the amount of money.

Let her receive the favor from a wealthy person and cry in frustration!

“I don’t need any change!!”

I declared, then swiftly walked away.

The pure-hearted heroine will surely struggle with such a large payment. 

Let her receive the envy and jealousy of the villainess!

“Customers!”

While hearing Kukrika’s bewildered voice, I swore to never come here again and ran away. 

“It was delicious. . .Dashimaki tamago.”

From tomorrow onwards, I decided to send the coachman to buy it.
