The Legendary Villainess Who Vanished on the Guillotine, in Her Second Life She Wishes for Peace as a Studious, Plain Glasses-Wearing Person – Chapter 46

Chapter 46: Awakening 〈Agustin〉

When I opened my eyes, my younger brother’s face suddenly appeared in my field of vision, and I blinked my eyes up and down without grasping the situation.

“Brother, you’ve woken up.”

Elias frowned, looking worried. The fact that I could see the ceiling behind him meant that I must have been put to sleep somewhere.

I had no idea what was going on, but I felt strangely refreshed. What happened to me?

“Elias, what is this… what happened?”

“Yes, let me explain. Can you sit up?”

I sat up and didn’t feel dizzy or anything. In fact, I felt much lighter than before.

I adjusted my posture and turned towards Elias. Next to my brother, there was an unfamiliar woman sitting, and I felt suspicious inside.

“To make a long story short, Brother, you were brainwashed by the witch, Yserra Echeverria. So we invited Candelaria-dono here to undo the brainwashing, and that’s why you’ve woken up now.”

There was so much information crammed into a short line that I was completely stunned.

Brainwashing? Me, by Yserra? I don’t understand.

And who is this woman that Elias showed me?

“I am a witch and a special researcher, my name is Candelaria. It’s an honor to meet you, Your Highness Agustin.”

Candelaria showed a relaxed bow.

In our country, we employ witches and study their magic together.

The reason, of course, is to prepare for attacks from witches. I had heard about it, but this was my first time meeting the person in question.

“How are you feeling?”

Candelaria smiled leisurely. She was probably in her early twenties, with a bewitching atmosphere and violet hair and blue eyes.

When I heard “special researcher,” I imagined an old lady, but she was quite young.

“Oh… I have no problem.”

“That’s good to hear. And may I ask, what are your feelings towards Baron Echeverria’s daughter?”

Still trying to process everything, I thought about the question that was asked of me.

…What? I can’t seem to remember the memories of when I met Yserra. I have memories of my daily life, but there’s a thin film covering the time I spent with Yserra.

No, but I was supposed to break up with Yserra. Why did I keep dating her even though I didn’t have any feelings for her anymore?

“I don’t really understand why we were even in a romantic relationship…”

“Well, thank you. I think it’s safe to say that the brainwashing has completely worn off now.”

Elias breathed a sigh of relief at Candelaria’s words.

The expression on my brother’s face had a certain truth to it, and I felt the realization seep into my heart.

“Was I really…brainwashed by Yserra, Candelaria?”

“Yes, it seems so, from the moment you met her. The witch was inexperienced, so I was able to break the spell quickly, but it could have been dangerous if it continued for too long.”

Despite the content of her words, Candelaria smiled happily and left the room with leisurely movements, leaving instructions to rest for a while.

Silence descends upon the room where only the brothers remain.

Upon closer inspection, the room is simple in design, and it seems to be a place like a duty room. I don’t remember how I was brought here, but it seems that this younger brother has become a significant force.

“Elias, what’s going on? Why are you here?”

“Yes. It’s a long story, but let me explain.”

Elias explained the situation step by step.

He had suspicions about Yserra being a witch and had been conducting an independent investigation with four of his friends.

Among those friends were Camilo, Leticia, and Alondra Bellis, the granddaughter of Dr. Bellis.

Then, when Yserra targeted Miss Alondra, a big commotion occurred, and as a result, Leticia was injured.

Yserra was restrained, and now the various follow-up procedures have settled down.

Dr. Bellis happened to be at the school, so he had them fly to Candelaria using his connections.

“I also contacted Father. It’s a matter of course, and above all, I suggested an investigation into Miss Yserra.”

“I see… That’s how it was.”

I murmured softly and clenched both fists tightly.

What the hell. How much incompetence have I shown?

Getting lost in witchcraft, causing trouble to others, and even having them solve everything for me.

This is the worst. I have no face to meet Elias or my father.

“…I heard Marquis Benito’s daughter got injured. Is she okay?”

“Yes, Camilo healed her with healing magic, so there’s no problem. I was worried because there was a lot of bleeding, but it’s really good now.”

“I see, that’s good… But he must be quite angry.”

Then Elias looked a little troubled. He immediately smiled and shook his head as if it was difficult to say.

“No, I don’t think he minds. It might be more appropriate to say he has other things to worry about.”

“Other things to worry about.”

“Well, how should I put it… I had something like a quarrel with Camilo, I guess…”

It’s not the right time for my brother to step in, so please don’t apologize until this matter is resolved.

Elias said that and closed the conversation, but I, trapped in a single thought, completely missed my brother’s advice.

Camilo and Leticia had a fight. I wonder if it’s because of the incident Yserra caused.

If it’s my fault, I want to apologize. And if they’re going to break up, I wonder if it’s not allowed to at least tell her that I can’t help but be concerned about Leticia.

“Understood, Elias. Sorry for the trouble.”

“Yes, please take care… Oh, right.”

Elias stood up from the round chair, but before he turned on his heel, he seemed to remember something.

Then a smile appeared on my brother’s face. A smile with a pressure to make others submit, one that I had never seen before.

“You’re not going to get engaged to Miss Alondra, are you?”

“…Huh.”

“This incident has occurred. You won’t have anything to do with Miss Alondra anymore, right, Brother?”

Elias emphasized each word, making me gulp nervously.

The absolute zero pressure emanating from his slender body made it difficult for me to even move my tongue.

After finally nodding my head, my brother’s usual smile seemed to return.

“Of course not. I will not be engaged to Miss Alondra.”

“Good. Please don’t forget those words.”

As Elias nodded satisfactorily and left the room, I collapsed onto the bed once again.

…Was my brother really such a terrifying man?

  1. AHHH I hoped but I love the idea of the second prince and Alondra getting together. Hopefully this means Elias won’t become King.
