I Was Genderswapped and Reincarnated as a Villainess, but I’m Making this My Personal Yuri Game

Chapter 68: The Appointed Day

When we got home, my brother explained the situation to my mom. Nothing official had been decided; not even a date and time. Even so, he was able to convince my mom slightly beforehand, so we could probably get her permission the moment we confirmed everything.

It was a party, so you couldn’t really spring it on someone by surprise. It was common sense to communicate the plan beforehand. Lately, it was popular to keep quiet about the party to surprise the other person or tell them about the party just in time, but I had often seen that fail.

It would be fun if it succeeded, but I didn’t really like those types of productions where you didn’t consider the other person’s feelings and what would work for them. Most importantly, the failure rate was high. In this scenario, it was important to communicate with my mom beforehand.

For my part, I’d rather mom be against me going to the party, but I still had to consult her beforehand. It wasn’t just thinking about not surprising the other person, but instead properly considering their feelings, current position, and circumstances.

Putting that aside, my mom didn’t say whether I could or couldn’t go, but had decided that she would think about it until the invitations came out. I kept silent throughout my brother’s explanation, but my mom kept glancing at me. What on earth did that mean…

Well, that was what my brother had explained to mom last night. I was going to invite the people that I wanted to invite today. I immediately brought it up at lunch where we all gathered together.

“Konoe-sama is hosting a party. Is everyone here attending?”

“Huh?”

Tsubaki-chan and Renge-chan were talking about something. It was probably pretty weird, but he had said that I could invite my friends if I wanted to. I wanted to invite as many of them as I could.

“Is this a party announcing your engagement with Konoe-sama, or an engagement party perhaps?”

“…huh?”

I stiffened at what Yuzuriha-chan said. What was she saying? Why would Ibuki and I hold an engagement party? And this was the Konoe family, so they’d probably make a bigger deal out of it if it was an engagement party. Couldn’t he hold a small party where I could invite my friends?

“If this was a formal announcement, then a large-scale engagement announcement and engagement party would certainly be held. Firstly, though, both families would hold a ceremony with only blood relatives attending. Only then will close friends and acquaintances be informed.”

Oh~… I could somewhat understand what Satsuki-chan wanted to say. Basically, it’d start with a discussion between both our immediate families. Once that was decided on, blood relatives from both families would be informed. There would be a table set up for both families to sit together.

Then, friends from both sides would be informed. Right now, I was just calling my friends to Ibuki’s party and Ibuki was inviting his friends too, which could be taken as saying that we were telling our friends that Ibuki and I were getting engaged. 

I mean, saying that it was okay for me to invite people even though a different family was hosting the party was pretty weird. But it was still a pretty huge misunderstanding to say that I was doing that because I wanted to tell people that Ibuki and I were getting married. That was a huge leap.

“It is not like that. I was just told that I could invite my friends, so I thought to invite everyone here.”

It wouldn’t be good if they still had this weird misunderstanding. If it went badly, the rumour that I was Ibuki’s fiancée might circulate. If that happened, there was a possibility it’d develop the same way as “Love Flowers” did. If people started hearing that I was calling myself Ibuki’s fiancée and chasing after him even though I didn’t want to marry him, that’d be bad.

I had explained for a while after that, but did they really get it…? I was especially worried about Yuzuriha-chan. No matter how much I explained, she still kept grinning… I really didn’t want her to have weird misunderstandings, but…

Anyway, I explained to everyone that the Konoe family was hosting a party, but that I could pick who I wanted to invite, so I was asking everyone when they were free.

Advertisements

“Um… I am only available on this day.”

“I can only do this day~. I am not available on the others.”

We were immediately at an impasse. Renge-chan and Yuzuriha-chan were only free on one of the four options respectively and not any of the others. But the others weren’t free on the days that Renge-chan and Yuzuriha-chan were. Basically, if I decided to go with the days when Renge-chan and Yuzuriha-chan could attend, I couldn’t invite the others.

Satsuki-chan wasn’t available on the other two potential dates. The most people that could come on a single day was four; the next potential day would have three people coming, and Renge-chan and Yuzuriha-chan were free on one of the other two dates respectively.

I had thought about this myself, but there was definitely a lot of courage in making these decisions… On top of knowing when everyone was free, I had to avoid the dates when Yuzuriha-chan and Renge-chan weren’t free. It was the same thing as deciding that Renge-chan and Yuzuriha-chan couldn’t come…

I see… that was why the host of a party decided the dates and times by themselves… If they had asked the people they were planning on inviting when they were available, they would definitely choose a date when someone couldn’t come. There was a chance that the person would take it as the host telling them not to come.

That was why the host decided on a date and time without asking the participants when they were available. If someone couldn’t come, they could just say “That’s unfortunate” and leave it at that. If you knew that someone wasn’t free on that date and picked it anyway, that’d worsen your relationship. That was what asking meant

“Oh! Sakuya-chan, don’t worry about us. It won’t work out for us. We can’t do anything about it. You can just pick a day that’s good for everyone else.”

“Yes, please do not worry about us.”

“Yuzuriha-chan, Renge-chan, I am sorry.”

For even Yuzuriha-chan to worry about it… This would normally be something that I had to worry about, but for someone else to even care about it was…

“Then, this date is the first choice, while this date is the second choice…”

Advertisements

“Yes.”

“Understood.”

Four people could come on the first choice. With the second choice, Satsuki-chan couldn’t come, but three others could. As we were talking about that, a good amount of time had passed, so we returned to our classrooms.

  ~~~~~~~

After school, I asked Kaya-san when she was free. I had told her about the four potential dates, but…

“If you’re inviting me, Sakuya-chan, then I’ll go at any time.”

“I-Is that so…”

She decided with a single sentence… Was this person okay? She was basically saying she was free anytime, no matter what prior plans she might’ve had…

“I am sure that you are aware of this because you were there yesterday, Kaya-san, but despite this being my invitation, the hosts are the Konoe family. Please do not forget that…”

From Kaya-san’s careless words, she was acting like I was the host, which would be a serious problem. If people started saying that I was pretending to be the host at a Konoe family party, it’d get complicated. There’d normally be times when you could correct a widespread misunderstanding. But Lady Sakuya couldn’t have any quarrels with the Konoe family.

Strange things had happened to Lady Sakuya in the game like someone was trapping her. She had definitely been selected as one of Ibuki’s marriage candidates and she herself had chased after Ibuki.

Lady Sakuya was one of his marriage candidates, so there should’ve been no problem with her acting like it. She shouldn’t have received any criticism. But why was all the blame placed squarely on Lady Sakuya in the game?

Advertisements

She wasn’t acting especially arrogant or had done anything strange. In the first place, Lady Sakuya was a slightly pitiful child, so she couldn’t come up with complicated strategies or behind-the-scenes manoeuvres. She was the type to confront problems head-on and get beat up.

So then, why had the idea that Lady Sakuya was doing evil deeds in the shadows spread? That was strange, no matter how you thought about it. If you really knew Lady Sakuya, you’d wouldn’t think she’d do something like that. It was almost like someone was setting her up…

Well, whatever. That wasn’t related to the present. More importantly, I had to meticulously monitor my misunderstanding related to Ibuki and the Konoe family so that it wouldn’t spread.

If a misunderstanding, no matter how small, spread, I might become like a second Lady Sakuya. This world was unusually cruel to Lady Sakuya. If there was even a little danger or risk, I needed to thoroughly deal with it…

“Sakuya! So, how is it? Have you decided?”

“Konoe-sama… yes. The first choice is this date, and the second choice is this date.”

Every time Ibuki dropped the honorific, I got annoyed. Come to think of it, Ibuki also didn’t use honorifics for Lady Sakuya in “Love Flowers”.

He didn’t want to get married from the beginning and just wanted to be someone else’s fiancée, so he made Lady Sakuya his marriage candidate because he hated marriage talks. He still dropped the honorific, though, and made her follow and obey him… And when he didn’t need her, he trapped and ruined her…

Yeah, maybe that was why? Maybe that was why the fact that Ibuki was calling me without any honorifics was annoying?

“Got it. Then, I’ll try my best to make it one of these days.”

“Yes…”

The party was huge. The issue now was the date of the party and who’d be invited. I had written down the dates that the people who I wanted to invite could come and passed it to him. On the first choice, five people, counting Kaya-say, could come; on the second date, four people; and on the third and fourth dates, three people respectively. I had written down the invitees’ names, so that when the Konoe family decided which day to pick, they could send out invitations to the people who could come on that day.

“Sorry, Kujou-san.”

“Takatsukasa-sama.”

Ibuki had put away the paper I gave him and Enju arrived. Come to think of it. Enju said he was coming to this party too. Who was Ibuki inviting?

“Ibuki doesn’t listen once he starts talking. I told him it might be troublesome for you though, Kujou-san. I’m sorry for all the troubles he’s causing.”

“No, you have nothing to apologise for, Takatsukasa-sama. By the way… who is Konoe-sama planning to invite?”

Even if Enju apologised… It’d just make me feel annoyed, so I wanted him to stop. I didn’t really feel like blaming Enju. I knew what Ibuki was saying and that he wouldn’t listen to what others were saying. Even if Enju talked about that like it was a bad thing, I’d just be troubled.

Well, maybe that was what Enju was aiming for… Maybe by apologising despite being unrelated to the matter, he was trying to get me to lay down arms. If that was what he was planning, that was fine, though…

More importantly, I was interested in who Ibuki would be inviting. After all, Ibuki didn’t listen to anything once he started talking about the party. There was a high possibility that I’d be coming too. If anyone weird was coming to the party, I’d fake sick so I wouldn’t have to go.

“Ibuki’s just inviting me and Mizuki-san. He thought about inviting Yoshizane-san too, but he declined in the very beginning.”

“Oh… I see…”

Ibuki… did this guy have no friends to invite? He didn’t have any… I didn’t know about “Love Flowers”, but in this world at the very least, Ibuki was relatively lonely, or rather had only a few friends. He didn’t have anyone close enough to invite… That was a little sad. Well, he was getting his just desserts.

“Oi, Enju! What’re you and Sakuya talking about?”

“Nothing in particular. We were just talking about how much we were looking forward to the party.”

Saying that, Enju pretended the conversation didn’t happen, went beside Ibuki, and left me. It looked like we’d decided on the date; the problem was what my mom would do.

When we got home, my brother explained the situation to my mom. Nothing official had been decided; not even a date and time. Even so, he was able to convince my mom slightly beforehand, so we could probably get her permission the moment we confirmed everything.

“Konoe-sama is hosting a party. Is everyone here attending?”

“Huh?”

“What does that…?”

Azami-chan and Satsuki-chan were there yesterday, so they understood what I was talking about. The four people who were part of Azami-chan’s group didn’t get it and looked confused.

Well, of course they would be. When you were normally invited to a party, you’d be getting an invitation from the hosts and replying to said invitation. The host would have already decided the date, time, place, and participants. All that the invitees had to decide was whether to go or not.

Compared to that, those four probably didn’t understand what I meant. If everyone had already gotten invitations, they’d know that I was asking whether they were going or not, but everyone had only heard that there was a party just now.

“Oh~… Konoe-sama is hosting a small party, and he has said that I could invite some participants. There is no set date or time, but potential dates are…”

If I could, I wanted everyone to come, so I listed a lot of potential days. I didn’t know which one it’d be this early, but I wanted to pick a day that was convenient for the most people possible.

Of course, what was convenient for Ibuki and I took precedence. That was why the potential dates were days when Ibuki and I were both free. I had thought of deciding on a day where the most people I wanted to invite could come, which I had discussed with Ibuki yesterday.

“It is Konoe-sama’s party, and yet Sakuya-chan is deciding on the invitees. That is…”

“That’s almost like…”

Tsubaki-chan and Renge-chan were talking about something. It was probably pretty weird, but he had said that I could invite my friends if I wanted to. I wanted to invite as many of them as I could.

    Thank you for awesome translation!!

    How can Enju tell her to invite people? doesn’t he know that that will bring misunderstandings?

    Edit suggestions:

    the problem was what my mom would do.

    When we got home(The chapter repeats from here again)
