The Legendary Villainess Who Vanished on the Guillotine, in Her Second Life She Wishes for Peace as a Studious, Plain Glasses-Wearing Person – Chapter 24

Chapter 24: Summer vacation has begun

As Alania Academy is a boarding school, all students return to their families during long vacations.

And since summer vacation is the height of the social season, most students head directly to the townhouses in the capital.

As expected, I also returned to the townhouse of the Marquis Benito family in the capital, and was welcomed with great enthusiasm by my family as soon as I entered the entrance.

“Letty, welcome back! We’ve been waiting for you!”

The first one to embrace me with tears in his eyes was my Otoo-sama himself, Marquis Enriquez Benito.

Even though I’m his daughter, Otoo-sama is still youthful and incredibly handsome at 38 years old.

His glossy black hair has a slight wave to it, and his green eyes are always gently narrowed with kindness.

I love my father very much, but this embrace is a bit overwhelming.

“Welcome back, Letty!”

On the opposite side of Otoo-sama, my Okaa-sama, Martina, hugged me as well.

My facial features are just like Okaa-sama’s, and even the color of our eyes is exactly the same. She should be 36 years old this year, but she might look younger than 30.

I love Okaa-sama’s bright and friendly personality, but her strength has become too much for me to bear. I want to be released from it soon…

Overwhelmed by my parents’ warm welcome, I regained my energy as soon as I saw a small figure running towards me a step behind.

“Onee-sama, welcome back!”

“I’m back, Samuel!”

My cute little brother, who is turning 5 years old this year, showed an angelic smile that could defeat even angels, so I escaped from my parents’ arms and hugged his small body.

Oh, it seems like he’s grown a lot since I last saw him.

I’m happy to see my beloved brother grow, but it also brings a slight feeling of loneliness.

“Samuel, Sam…! I missed you so much!”

“Onee-sama! It’s really Onee-sama!”

I released my innocent laughing brother and looked into his eyes, which were the same color as mine, while still touching my upper arm.

I can’t say for sure because he’s still young, but my little brother probably takes after our father. His black hair is just like Otoo-sama’s, so I’m sure he’ll grow up to be a wonderful young man.

“My cute Sam. Let’s play a lot with Onee-sama this summer, okay?”

“Yay! I love Onee-sama!”

In front of Sam, who was blushing with joy and had soft cheeks, I lost my ability to speak.

…Can I say it again? He’s really cute!

I don’t care that Otoo-sama looks lonely and drops his shoulders behind me. It’s okay because Okaa-sama will pat his back and comfort him anyway.

After enjoying our reunion as a family for a while, the topic came up during tea time.

“Letty, I talked to Duke Cervantes-sama and we decided to have a dinner party between our families.”

I nodded with suppressed nervousness to Otoo-sama, who smiled and said it was okay.

Yes, I’ve been worried all this time because I knew this would happen.

It’s a sudden engagement. My parents are happy about it, but I wonder what Duke Cervantes and his wife think.

Fortunately, our social status should be a good match, but as a plain-looking woman like me, I’m afraid I might disappoint them.

“I’m looking forward to it, Letty. Just so you know, I’ll take care of your outfit on the day.”

I thought that, but then I noticed that Okaa-sama’s rose-colored eyes were burning with passion.

…Um, I have a bad feeling about this.

The dinner party was decided to be held at the Duke Cervantes’ house on the weekend.

It feels like things are moving too fast.

Although it had been discussed between the two families for a while, I wonder how they managed to arrange everything so smoothly.

As I was bewildered, a few days passed, and before I knew it, the day of the dinner party arrived.

“Now, Letty, first the corset.”

“Um, wait a minute, Okaa-sama…!”

I was awakened by the maids early in the morning, and before I knew it, I was stripped naked and wearing a corset.

I’m wearing glasses for the time being, but I don’t know how long I can keep them on.

“Now everyone, please cooperate and tighten it properly.”

“Of course, madam.”

The maids who received instructions from Okaa-sama to respond seemed genuinely happy.

They are too organized. Even though I was afraid of the fear of my organs being crushed, one of the maids spoke in surprise.

“My lady, have your breasts grown bigger?”

“Huh? Really… Ah!”

As I involuntarily looked down, the maids’ strength exploded, and I let out a miserable moan as they mercilessly tightened me.

Certainly, when I became the Crown Prince’s fiancée, I had a pretty nice body, so I think it’s a time when I’m growing quite a bit.

But that’s not important now…!

“Oh, Letty, you really look more feminine than before.”

“O-Okaa-sama…! It hurts, please let me go!”

“No, you see, you usually wear a comfortable uniform, so you probably forgot, but it’s supposed to be tightened ten times as much.”

Okaa-sama, that’s too harsh!

However, even though I made a desperate plea, it was in vain, and I was finally released only after being tightened a little more. And now, I was to be dressed in a dress of pale green color.

Even without asking, my embarrassment and confusion turned my face bright red as I looked at Okaa-sama. She knew the reason why I chose this color for the dress!

“Isn’t this a bit too intentional…! Also, how do you even know Camilo’s eye color?”

“I asked Duke Cervantes’ wife. Don’t worry, you’re being modest, so being a bit too intentional is just right for you.”

As we talked, the maids continued to adjust my dress.

The lace on the shoulders is beautiful. The skirt flares out from the waist and is adorned with a thin green ribbon, giving off an innocent charm. The delicate neckline adds a touch of sensuality without revealing too much.

As expected of Okaa-sama, it’s truly a pretty dress.

But, but… If I were to wear this design that is too virtuous, I, who was once a villainess, would be laughed at!

“Wait a minute! Didn’t I have a navy blue dress?! I want to wear that one!”

“No way. You won’t be able to charm the gentlemen with such a plain dress.”

My desperate protests were easily dismissed, and before I knew it, I was seated in front of the dresser.

In the mirror, I could see my mother’s smug smile over my shoulder.

“Well then, let me take this.”

In a lightning-fast move, my glasses were snatched away.

The maids cheered. I was left speechless, unable to do anything but stare at my foolish face in the mirror.

“It’s been a while since I saw My Lady’s face!”

“How beautiful you are!”

“It’s worth polishing you up!”

I let the noisy conversation pass by from right to left, and turned around to desperately try to retrieve my glasses. However, Okaa-sama easily dodged my attempts with her graceful movements.

“How naive, Letty. I’m sorry, but there won’t be any glasses today.”

She said this with a dazzling smile that seemed to say she was having too much fun.

She must be thrilled to have gained the great cause of dressing up her daughter through this engagement, as she was the one who had always been most dissatisfied with my plainness.

“Okaa-sama, that’s awful! Please give me back my partner!”

“No, dear. You were born a peerless beauty just like me, so why are you trying to hide it?”

“Well, umm… I like to keep a low profile!”

“That’s not a good reason. Besides, it’s a family dinner, and only family members are attending.”

I can understand Okaa-sama’s point.

Since my eyesight is better than average, wearing non-prescription glasses at a dinner party would be inappropriate. Thick glasses that cover my face give the impression that I am rejecting the other person, and they don’t match the dress at all.

Also, I didn’t have a close relationship with Duke Cervantes and his wife in my past life, so revealing my true self wouldn’t bring back any memories. They may not even know what I look like with glasses.

But when I dressed up so nicely and became someone different from my usual self, it made me feel uneasy. I couldn’t help but think that at least I could wear glasses.

“Well then, everyone, take care of the rest. I’m counting on you.”

“Please leave it to us, madam.”

The maids all bowed to the mistress of this mansion, who left the room in a cheerful mood.

Their eyes were filled with enthusiasm when they turned back, so I finally surrendered.

Oh well. If it’s come to this, I’ll just have to go with the flow…
