Tenma, it seems I’ve been reincarnated as a daughter of a baron.
You may question my sanity, but it’s the truth.
I will say it again.
I, who was Nakamura Tasuku in my previous life, have been reincarnated as Sophie Liniere, a baron’s daughter. Did you manage to understand?
Well, at first, I was so confused and didn’t understand it completely either.
Jeez, I was so surprised that perhaps my brain couldn’t process it, and I had been sleeping for three days after recalling the memories.

It is a pity that I will never be able to see you again, but at least I will continue writing my diary in the form of a letter to you.
Well then, farewell, Tenma.
Sophie closed her thick diary and let out a deep sigh from her small crimson lips.
She had inherited her deep jet-black hair from her father and her beautiful jade green eyes from her mother, and if she were to keep her mouth shut, she would be a lovely little girl who will turn six this year.
“Tenma, you surely made it out alive, right?…”
Her manner of speaking was unbefitting for a young child, and the deep sigh she let out was very much like the melancholy of a tired, old man.
Sophie drowned in the private river a few days ago.
The river was not very deep, but Sophie, who had always been afraid of water for some reason since childhood, was startled by the shock of falling into the river after tripping over a stone; she froze in place and was drowning in panic, not realizing how shallow the river was until a boy in a passing carriage saved her.
When the boy asked, “Are you okay?” the words Sophie uttered in a gasp were the name of her best friend from her previous life.
Sophie remembered everything when the name came out of her mouth unconsciously.
She remembered being a man in her previous life and dying in a shipwreck.
Until then, Sophie had always lived with a strange sense of discomfort.
Sophie always had the feeling that she was forgetting something important, but couldn’t remember what it was.
For example, when she reads a book, even though it was the first time she had read it, she would either sort it out as something she didn’t know at all or similar to something she does know.
Even though she finds it odd, she has never mentioned it to anyone. Although she was very young, she was unable to speak up about how she felt there was something wrong with her.
“Well, it’s a good thing I didn’t say anything. It’s not like anyone could figure out that it was due to having memories from my previous life.”
The words she muttered to herself with her elbows on the desk and her palms resting on her round white cheeks, were completely the gestures and tone of Tasuku from her previous life.
“Oops, I must not. I’m Sophie! And I’m a young lady!”
She laughed, “Fufufu”.
I never thought that I would be reborn as a girl, but I am very happy with my life now.
Because Sophie has a family that I didn’t have when I was Nakamura Tasuku.
Tasuku was abandoned by his mother when he was five years old and grew up in an orphanage. Not knowing who his father was, and having been abandoned by his mother, the greatest fortune of Tasuku, who was all alone, was meeting a friend named Tenma in elementary school.
If I hadn’t met Tenma, I’m sure my life wouldn’t have been as good as it was.
That’s why, at the time of the shipwreck, I desperately prayed that I at least wanted Tenma to survive. I wanted him to be safe, even at the cost of my own life.
“You made it back to Japan safely, right…?”
After she recovered her memory, Sophie found herself talking about Tenma time after time.
If his life had ended like mine in the cold seawater…just thinking about it makes my heart ache.
Tenma had a family waiting for his return. When I was Tasuku, Tenma’s family treated me very well. That’s why I absolutely wanted him to return home safely.
“Damn! No point in worrying about it! Tenma is lucky. He’ll be fine! Of course, he’ll be fine!”
Tenma was a man of great luck; he was the kind of person who was certain to win the lottery after having only bought one ticket. I had no choice but to trust in that luck.
However, no matter how much I believed and prayed, I cannot know the whereabouts of Tenma in this world. When you don’t know what will happen to you after you die, you can’t help but feel anxious.
In an attempt to somehow suppress the urge of anxiety, Sophie decided to write a diary, in the form of a letter to her best friend, as a solace.
Since it would be bad in many ways if the contents were read, she wrote it in Japanese using the memories of her previous life.
That way, she can rest assured that no matter what she writes or who reads it, they will never understand the contents. Moreover, she asked for a thick diary that would be durable so that it could be cherished for many years. With this, she could write daily.
After she recovered her memory, Sophie decided that the only time she would talk about her memories when she was Tasuku was when she wrote in her diary.
The rest of the time, she would live as the daughter of a baron, Sophie Liniere.
I have received a lot of love from my parents, and they have provided me with a comfortable life. I decided to return that love as Sophie.
However, there was one matter in which I could not repay my parents’ love.
In this world, even if you’re not noble, it is common for you to marry someone your parents have decided on.
However, with apologies to her parents, Sophie is determined to remain celibate her entire life and eventually become a nun.
It’s not that I’m reluctant to marry a man because I was a man in my previous life.
It was because I remembered that in my previous life when I was dying, I prayed to God that in exchange for saving my best friend’s life, I would be a priest and serve God in the next life.
It occurred to me that maybe it was because of this vow, that God had reminded me of my previous life.
I guess I will have to fulfill it.
TL Note: I was misled into thinking Sophie won’t marry because she was a man before. Now, it’s clear. It’s because she’s aiming to be a nun. I picked this novel to support Sophie’s journey to nunhood. I hope you all the best Sophie.
