“What the hell…”

I was horrified by the book in my hands.

The book had been in my room since I was a child, with brightly colored pictures on the cover and strange vertical lines of text inside. I had no idea what was written in it.

But now I can read it. because it’s in Japanese.

“This is me…”


Yesterday afternoon, I, Adele and my brother Tristan attended a tea party hosted by His Royal Highness Prince George in the palace garden.

The attendees are the children of the count’s family and those above who are close in age to the second prince, and the tea party serves as a kind of screening for the queen and his entourage candidates.

The second prince and I are also cousins, as our grandmother married into the Tegperi family from the royal family.

The second prince and my brother are 14 years old, and I am 12.

We all have blond hair and blue eyes. We have lighter hair than the second prince, who has darker hair.

Most nobles are skilled in magic and have one or two of the following attributes: water, fire, earth, and wind.

The second prince is of water and earth. My brother and I are of the earth’s attributes.

Our attributes and magical powers stabilize around the age of 10 to 12, so formal engagements are often made after that.

Since the eldest is married, the second prince is the highest-ranking unmarried man in our country.

He is handsome in appearance, possesses two attributes, has much magical power, and, according to my brother, is of good character.

The young ladies are in high spirits. Of course, I started polishing and decorating myself early in the morning. My hair is curled in vertical rolls and my dress is full of frills.

In the autumn sun, the garden is full of big red and pink roses.

At the beginning of the tea party, I greeted the Second Prince next to my brother.

My brother and the Second Prince have been friends since childhood, but I haven’t seen the Second Prince in a few years. I was looking forward to meeting him.

“Adele, it’s been a long time.”

The Second Prince calls out to me. I lift my face and my eyes meet the smiling Second Prince.

What a handsome boy!

…T-This is a shoujo manga!

At that same time, the recollection of another ego arrived and burnt in my head.


It’s just my brother and me for breakfast today.

My father must have stayed at the Royal Magicians’ laboratory again. I’m worried he’s not eating.

“Adele, aren’t you eating?”

He’s worried about me. The chopsticks I’m holding (not the fork and knife) have stopped. 

“You didn’t eat dinner last night? You only had some sweets at the tea party, though. “

After greeting the second prince, I don’t remember what I did or how I got home. We must have taken a carriage and not a train.

According to my brother, I ate sweets alone at a table in the corner of the hall for a long time after exchanging the usual greetings with the second prince.

“You haven’t talked to His Highness at all, have you? You were looking forward to it so much. Are you sick?”

A boy who had a similar face to mine asked me anxiously.

He is a different type of beautiful boy from the second prince. If the second prince likes sports, my brother likes astronomy.

I lived with him like family, but now I feel like I’m on the set of a film where the characters speak their lines.

In the live-action adaptation of this book, a child actor plays the legitimate son of a duke. He is the older brother of the villainess and one of the “targets” of the heroine’s love.
