The Villainess Princess Will Dive into the Labyrinth Again Today – Chapter 20
Chapter 20: The villainess princess goes out
Even the villainess princess Miliaria would sometimes become bored.
In one such moment, she snacked on some dried potatoes.
But why dried potatoes? As a treat for a princess, wouldn’t it be lacking in both color and flavor?
Well, they were still delicious…
But dwelling on these questions for too long would only lead to boredom, so Miliaria opened her mouth and spoke.
“…It’s boring, Mary. Can’t you sing a song for me for a while?”
“That’s a subtle form of bullying.”
“It’s that boring. If this continues… I’ll have to sing and dance by myself… wouldn’t that be entertaining?”
“Please don’t dance in the carriage. It’s cramped.”
They were currently traveling by carriage.
Of course, when they go on a trip, even training takes a break.
Since Miliaria had grown closer to Mary, the latter’s teasing had become more stringent.
Miliaria was a carefree individual, but at times she felt lonely.
“But the outside world looks so fun.”
“Miliaria-sama? They’re not playing.”
Oh? Is that so?
From inside the rocking carriage, Miliaria could hear the sounds of the knights happily playing outside in the serene atmosphere.
“Jelly! Jelly has appeared!”
“Don’t get too close to the carriage!”
TL: It’s not a Slime — ゼリーだ
The first thing that came to mind was the delicious, fruit-flavored dessert that was a summertime favorite.
But her monster encyclopedia quickly corrected her, informing her that it was actually the name of a monster.
“…Looks like they’re having a blast?”
“What are you talking about? Jelly is a powerful monster, you know?”
“…Well, I suppose so.”
Miliaria peered out the window.
The knights in armor were indeed battling a green jelly that was about the size of a basketball.
Miliaria quietly turned away and organized her thoughts.
She realized that in this world, many monsters were modeled after sweets, especially those that would appeal to girls.
It was a lazy concept, with monsters named after sweets such as jelly, pudding, parfait, and so on.
Even though they were supposed to be dangerous, to Miliaria, it appeared that the knights were simply playing with ghostly sweets.
“…What can I say, it looks scrumptious, doesn’t it?”
“…What? Your Highness… are you referring to jelly? I’ve never thought it was palatable, though?”
“Eh? Isn’t it delicious? It’s wobbly, and——”
Miliaria realized the truth about the world at that moment. How could something with that translucent green color be appealing?
In fact, Miliaria had also considered this, but there seemed to be a shortage of sweets in this world.
Even if there were, they all seemed bland to her current taste buds.
She had thought it was due to the scarcity of sugar and the lack of advanced confectionery, but… she couldn’t shake the feeling that the answer was right in front of her.
As long as there were monsters that looked like sweets, they couldn’t possibly be delicious.
Miliaria shuddered at the thought.
It was only logical, if you thought about it.
Imagine if a way was found to solidify fruit juice. If someone asked if it was delicious, the response would be similar to this.
“Doesn’t it feel slimy like jelly? Can’t it look like something else?”
Miliaria suddenly had no desire to eat anything.
Memories from another world were disrupting her thoughts and emotions.
In other words, was it their (monsters) fault that there were so few sweets?! When she reached this conclusion, her previous notion that it looked delicious vanished.
“…Indeed. If I must fight, I will eliminate them with every ounce of my being.”
“Ojo-sama? You have a very intimidating expression… If you bite your lips too hard, you will have to cut them off. Ojo-sama?”
Whoops, I shouldn’t have let my guard down. My doubts have been cleared and my urge to kill has risen.
Leisure is causing me to think about unnecessary things.
And now, I’ve remembered another unnecessary thing related to monsters.
Come to think of it, Miliaria had experienced a traumatic event in her childhood.
It was an event that was yet to happen, but while on a trip, Miliaria was attacked by a formidable monster.
At that time, Miliaria herself had sustained injuries and had to recuperate for several days, but her parents still didn’t visit her, and this only reinforced the already selfish Miliaria’s doubts about love and drove her further down the path of evil. That was the story.
In fact, Miliaria only had a few memories of her parents visiting her and was mainly taken care of by servants.
This was a result of the traditions of the Humming Kingdom.
The Humming Kingdom was ruled by a queen, and to raise strong and independent princesses, they were given a mansion within the castle grounds and raised by maids.
While it would be harsh to blame the current queen, who was raised in a similar environment, it would also be cruel to expect a young girl to understand it.
Miliaria was just one of the exceptions.
“…I wonder when the event will happen.”
Miliaria mumbled to herself.
Most of the time, events were powerful battles.
But to be honest, she couldn’t predict when an event would occur.
Although she didn’t leave the mansion often, monsters still appeared randomly.
She wanted to be stronger before that happened, even if it may never come.
What worried Miliaria more than unpredictable events was the future that was sure to come.
For example, if this carriage was heading to her grandfather’s mansion, she should be worried about that now.
“Did Oji-sama need a souvenir or something?”
“We have already prepared them here, so…”
Miliaria was talking about meaningless things out of boredom when Mary’s words were suddenly drowned out by a loud noise.
“Enemy attack! It’s a monster!”
“Form a line!”
Here we go again.
The carriage came to a stop, and Mary moved to Miliaria’s side with a serious expression.
“It’s a Horned Bear! It’s a big one!”
Miliaria responded to the voice.
“Did you say Horned Bear?! Please wait a moment!”
Miliaria kicked open the carriage door and jumped out.
There was a black bear with horns, about 5 meters long, that had burst through the forest trees and was now staring at Miliaria and the others.
