Chapter 1: Part1: The RomCom days of Sherlock Dolye ~ Please LISTEN to me!
Updated: 27th June 2017
“I heard that Jerome of the Knights Company has fallen in love with Ms Glinda. For that self-absorbed narcissistic pretty-boy to actually become enamoured by Lady Glinda, even kneeling and pleading ,’please accept my love!’”
“I’ve always thought that she doesn’t seem to fit her rumoured title
To seduce 1000 men, I had to be like the legendary Lovely Princess Celende of Romancia Kingdom 300 years ago – who collapsed seas of suitors just by a single peek from behind her fan – that level of power!
On this festive day which it was said that the Love Goddess Lana would grant the wishes of hopeful couples (but considered by lonely single guys to be “whatever, you guys are just looking for an excuse to celebrate anyway”- that kind of day), I received the love confessions of His Highness Prince Ryuuju, the heir-to-throne of Eren Kingdom, and Sir Jerome of the Knights Company at the same time.
-- This is my heart!
I was utterly flabbergasted.
Throughout my life of seventeen years, I had never been this popular. In fact, the target of my 1st love Clarice asked: “Who might you be? What? You are in the same class as me? Sorry,but I can’t seem to recognize you~”
Besides saying that, she added.
“Sorry~Sher-chan~You feel like air– totally not a target of my consideration.”
Glinda, who was famed as an omnipotent genius, was also my twin elder sister.
She managed to enter Winstoria Empire’s Imperial College as the top scholar at the age of seven with full marks for the entry examination,and then graduated the following year. Naturally with her unrivalled knowledge in politics, economics, arts and sciences or even military strategies, she was crowned the treasure of the Winstoria Empire.
Yet, the day before she was supposed to come to Eren, Glinda actually disappeared.
This situation could possibly bring about fractures between our two allied countries – thus the black-hearted diplomat explained with a scheming friendly smile, before forcing me to put on a suffocating corset and western gown, and then sending me, Sherlock Dolye, to the palace of the Eren Kingdom as a replacement for Glinda.
All these were, of course, top secret information.
In this country where the population primarily had blond hair and blue eyes, this straight-laced and pure-hearted boy of 11 had rare black hair and deep blue eyes. Not having reached pubity meant that his stature was smaller and thinner than even me.
“T-that… This morning’s lesson, Glinda mentioned that a 10-year war broke out between Rubinia and Winstoria because Rubinia’s queen and the empress of Winstoria were both showing off their favourite pets, and that their competition got out of hand. That is certainly an overly simplified look at how things actually went, but it is actually pretty interesting. Normal scholars probably won’t even have thought about such things.”
He probably was asking if we could go for ‘a little stroll’, but his voice softened and shoulders cringed until there was no way the word would come out, that even I began to felt nervous for his sake.
Finally, he turned and left with frightening speed.
Even I had tried before to ask girls out on dates, practicing and rehearsing furiously, but at the critical moment before the target, my brain would overheat and heart beat so quickly that I would appear more like a suspicious freak before, finally, returning home alone to roll around the floor in shame.
Ohhhhh. Sooorrryy, sorry, Your Highness!
I was not a pure lady deserving of your admiration.
To the pure-hearted Prince Ryuuju,this must be his 1st love. If he were to find out that the target of his 1st love was a cross-dressing transvestite… gosh, what a huge blow it would be to his self-esteem~~~~
As a matter of fact, with the exceptions of actors, I had never known any men that would actually wink, but this guy simply smoothly closed one of his eyes at me. He must have been practicing winking every day in front of his mirror.
“There’s no need. How many times must I say it before you get it, as a boy – uwu, as a girl, I have no inclination to waste any time on you! In fact, I don’t even wish to see your face in case I dirty my eyes.”
The difference between Jerome and Prince Ryuuju was that I had no need to pay him any attention, even if he was to hate me for it. In fact, I would very much prefer it if he actually hated me instead.
“Are you angry because I have been ignoring you?”
“What the cucumber are you talking about?”
He could actually bring himself to say such things.
I elbowed him and turned to flee.
“You will regret it if you play too hard to get!”
I heard him shouting such from behind.
But I was a royal tutor for the King’s own family, with a position equating that of a diplomatic guest of the kingdom! How could he just show such obvious display of his pursuit of someone of such high status?
Perhaps I could make an official complaint to the Eren Kingdom.
“My son has finally matured to the age where he begins to understand the charms of the opposite gender. Learning about romance and the intricacies of the heart is also an important aspect of a monarch. Then again, I wonder whether Ryuuju would be able to get Lady Glinda.”
He showed me an evil smile.
The most unbelievable thing was that even the adorable Queen of Eren, who was also the Mother of 6 princes and princesses, simply tied Her head of black hair into a ponytail as She sliced Her home-baked fruitcake in Her maid uniform, saying chirpily.
At Her side, Princess Suzuna was fast asleep in her baby crib while the young Prince Shin gripped tightly at the hems of Her cake-cutting Majesty’s dress with a blank face without any opinion.Then again, it would actually be rather freakish if a 5 year old child were to open his mouth to voice his opinions on love and romance.
Everyone seemed to be so highly excited by the commotion this time that it would most likely be ignored even if I were to complain that Jerome would cause disruption to my tasks as a royal tutor, so please exile him somewhere far away or some isolated postings.
The chatty little twin-sisters might even whine in unison.
“What? But that’s sooooo boring!”
My mind was filled with the image of a statue carved as if of ice, decorated with a pair of top-class amethyst crystals as eyes, and exuding such cold sad beauty that my heart began to feel depressed, when – ….
I stopped my feet.
“Oh, uwuu… uwwuuwuuu… That…”
Yet, when I beheld that head of silver hair that almost crackled like ice, skin of pure white snow that detested filth of any form, and frosty cold amethyst purple eyes – the beauty of Princess Seira, even an adult with greater courage would also probably tremble.
And, above all, she was glaring at me without a blink.
What had actually caused this situation?
When I first arrived at the Eren Kingdom, I had been stumbled by Seira who was a genius like Glinda, and was even discovered by her to be a man very early on, so I had been afraid of her revealing my true identity all along.
-- Would you please call me just
-- Teacher… Sherlock.
I had finally become this child’s<Teacher>!
And yet, the very next morning when I arrived at the breakfast table after enduring the assault by the twin princesses, I could feel a freezing cold atmosphere directed at me from the opposite table, where Seira was seated, glaring icily directly at me.
Huh? Why was she doing that?
-- Teacher, you are so filthy.
After saying such words frostily,she just turned and left.
… Filthy? I was so filthy?
I must rectify her misconceptions.
“Sigh… Can’t open my mouth today either…”
I could only sigh in dejection.
As I returned to my room completely downcast, I discovered that Helmut had casually broke in and was sitting leisurely on a chair while enjoying red tea in a porcelain teacup decorated with patterns of flowers.
“I was rather worried about your promise with Princess Seira, and so decided to squeeze some time from my busy schedule to visit. Little did I realise that you have received the declarations of love from both the heir-to-the-throne and the elite of the knights company.Whereas Glinda gives the impression of being too high beyond reach by anyone,you are so flawed that it may be one reason you’re so popular. You should be really glad that your charms as a woman have been recognized, right? Back then,I was completely right when I judged that there is no other boy fitter to put on a western dress than you.”
“Stop saying that so proudly, you smiling schemer!”
I could not stop myself shouting.
Could it be that this fellow sailed from afar to Eren so regularly just to harass me? Was the job of a diplomat so carefree? Most importantly, this fellow had not found Glinda even after such a long while that I was beginning to have doubts as to whether he had been working properly.
Oh, right, Glinda had left me a note!
The upheaval had almost cast that out of my mind.
Helmut sighed and said.
“Sher-chan, your attitude has taken a turn for the worse. Young girls should learn to be gentler.”
“She is truly our country’s national treasure. When Glinda comes back, we must definitely hire her in the Intelligence department. She can infiltrate anywhere, and will certainly proof to be the best intelligence officer ever. You, Sher-chan, on the other hand…”
“Why are you looking at me and sighing like that? This can’t possibly be the time to be amazed at whether she’s our country’s national treasure, right? Glinda has boldly waltzed into this place and you still haven’t caught up with her! Is Winstoria Empire’s Intelligence Agency really the best in the world?”
“That’s of course. Please have some confidence in your own country.”
Humph! How could I possibly have confidence? After all, this was the type of country where even a scammer like this fellow could become a 1st class civil servant. Those on top, no doubt, must be even bigger lying old weasels.
“But we have known for a while now that Glinda would definitely appear in Eren Kingdom. We have already sent men to investigate the shops and tracks of Glinda, so it would only be a matter of time before we discover Glinda’s true aims.”
Did she have any specific goals?
-- I am not Glinda Dolye any more from today onwards.
“Alright. Since the situation with Princess Seira has been settled successfully, I should return now to my hectic duties. Till the next time then, while you experience the joys of being a woman passionately pursued by two men at the same time. But please at least look to your chastity, or you might be discovered to be a man and get sent to the gallows.”
He warned me with a jovial expression.
“W-why would my chastity be in danger!”
It was not as if I was a homosexual like Emperor Neli of the ancient Dorian Empire, who held lavish parties every night to seek out pretty young boys to spend the night with,ultimately resulting in the weakening of the empire.
I could probably just ignore that idiot Jerome.
Seira… What should I do?
At that moment, the window went “dong”.
… Was that the wind?
The windows facing the balcony had completely opened, and the white lacy curtains were lifted by the wind.Standing outside the windows was a blond young man with a branch of rose between his lips – that idiot Jerome from the knights company! He stood posed outside.
Messages of alarm buzzed through my brain, heralding an avalanche of fear. I grabbed the heaviest and hardest object at hand – a luxurious chair furnished with silk for its back – and lifted it up with both hands.
Screaming wildly towards the deep dark night, I hurled the chair towards the trespasser.
“Whew ~ Thankfully, he has not died….”
If such things were to get into the ears of Helmut, he would definitely take another dig at me: “As expected of Sher-chan, even though you are completely useless, you have turned out to be a total man-killer. But are you sure your chastity is alright? Maybe you’ve even had your top torn off right? That way, Glinda would be called little red beans again.”
“What a tough guy Jerome is.”
“Aww true that, to actually night-crawl into Lady Glinda’s chamber.”
“That’s the romance of men!”
“Oh, it’s you, Anneth.”
Ahhhhhh, such pure concern made me feel so grateful~~~~ Anneth!
“Mmm, I’m alright. Thank you, Anneth.”
“Really? That’s good then! Even though I love reading night-crawling stories in novels, which should be kept in the world of men, freed from status, putting each other’s love and reputation at stake! How can you do such things to a delicate girl! If Jerome wishes tonight-crawl, he should be targeting the other members of his knights company,such as Captain Lambert or some such. Plots like this where big muscular
But for this, she would be the perfect girl.
Anneth’s love of erotic love between men was far more sumptuous than a stack of strawberry tarts. She even wrote her own novels starring Helmut as the
“N-no, I don’t.”
The 1st Knight… was that not just his boasting?
“Jerome is an extremely ~~~troublesome person.”
“Even if he is warned, he will not mind it, but instead the warning would strengthen his lust to copy from other websites. This lust is nothing like the normal desire, but actually means a burning thirst as though the entire body is on fire.”
But even if you say that, actually I could not sue them for copyright infringement…
Anneth closed in and continued.
“Previously, he used a bot to copy from my webpage, the GirlyBoysAlliance, ending up copying even the spoofs and pictures, but could not copy any content or hyperlinks. But he actually said: ‘Finally, a website worthy of ads!’, and went back manually to copy even the download links 3 days later. After a fierce battle in there for one full month, he finally defeated the owner.”
That guy… couldn’t possibly be a psycho, right?
“Seeing Jerome’s power of site-ripping, even the DMCA gasped: ‘how can there possibly be such chaotic bots?’ When a download link was uploaded, Jerome ripped it off immediately and posted it on his site, but he forgot there's even serial IDs on the pdf files..”
“Even if he is to be injured, he will not mind it, but instead the injury would strengthen his lust for conquest. This lust is nothing like the normal desire, but actually means a burning thirst as though the entire body is on fire.”
Anneth closed in and continued.
“Previously, he got attacked by a bear outside of the capital, ending up with broken bones in both arms and legs,and brought back to the city half-alive. But he actually said: ‘Finally, an opponent worthy of me!’, and went back into the forest for revenge 3 days later.After a fierce battle in there for one full month, he finally defeated the bear.”
That bear… couldn’t possibly be a raccoon, right?
“Seeing Jerome’s power of rejuvenation, even the doctors gasped: ‘how can there possibly be such chaotic bones and organs?’ When a flu plague infested the capital, Jerome trained with his sword in the snow half-naked while sneezing non-stop, but he was completely fine the next day.”
“In the knights company, he is always looking for opponents that is above his own physique and strength,picking up his sword again and again even when he got beaten down until he finally achieves victory. It is by his extraordinary hard work and stubbornness that got him to the 1st seat in the Knights company.”
Just listening to these words I could almost be enamoured by his greatness… especially when brought in comparison to me whose goal was just to become a NEET parasite on Glinda, aimlessly repeating college exams.
But, now was not the time to be amazed at his achievements!
I asked with a face of despair,and Anneth replied weightily.
After getting mauled by a bear the last time, he got back up after 3 days, right? So he would probably be returning again after approximately that much time right? And he won’t give up until he succeeds?
Waaaaaaaaah! What should I doooooo?
Must I really jam carrots up my nostrils?
Sigh, why should I land in this audacious situation… Did all popular and cute girls in this world also suffer such kinds of horrible problems? I’m really sorry, I wouldn’t stare any more the next time I encounter a pretty girl again!
Seeing me trembling with tears in my eyes, Anneth held my hand tightly.
Her hand was as soft and warm as kneaded dough.
“Don’t cry, Glinda, I would definitely protect you from Jerome.”
“From tonight, I would be sleeping over at Glinda’s room.”
