The Villainous Daughter does not Dance with the Dragon - Chapter 1.2
I especially liked the young man who was from the half dragon race. He was so innocent and kind, despite his sharp face! It was actually an anime that got me into this game in the first place. The anime was about the Queen of Main Cape, with him as the main character.
The Rose Garden, or RG for short, has been enthusiastically supported by users all around. It has even been adapted into cartoons and musicals. I poured in all my bonus charges and went into the game, which was great.
♪ Oh, the darkness is spreading, my mani-niii ♪
‘Oh no, no.’ I almost sang out loud.
I was not much of a gamer, but I was a big fan of the illustrations that were inadvertently put together on these video sites. I got hooked on it, and before long, I couldn’t stop myself from getting the game app on my phone, and even more importantly, charging for it, and spending all of my commute and lunch break on clearing all the game routes impatiently.
If you clear the main route early, that’s where all the fun began.
They even let you play different game routes. I liked the Priest-in-Chief route, too. The scene where the nervous Priest clumsily got out of bed was incredibly moe.
Now, the game did have a villian, however, yesterday while I was playing the game, it felt as if Remilia, the villain, somehow became the main character.
The Priest route was coming to a climax, but the prospective fiancées, instead went to the villainous daughter, Remilia’s mansion. Then the Priest and the Prime Minister condemned her father to death for plotting to assassinate the Queen.
“Isn’t it hard to understand why Shin is being sent out to comfort Remilia, Aki-chan!?”
“And why do you have to be comforted in a garden surrounded by roses, Remilia!?”
“You’re not the heroine, Remilia!”
“I can see that.”
“Her father, Lord Kalish, was killed in the first place because he arranged for an assassination! He deserves to be punished! He planned to murder. But why would Shin be driven out of the house! Nope!”
“Did you capture the stills of Remilia and Shin’s hug?”
“I wish the Prime Minister would just kill the Duke as quickly as possible. What does Shin-chan know? I don’t even know what I’m talking about! That’s why we had an event called “Shin-chan” where he hugged Remilia… And Remilia, why did it have to be Shin? I hate you! That’s the Chief Priest.”
Aki-chan sadly stared into the void with that.
“Because it’s Lady Remilia.”
“But those Shin stills were so beautiful, weren’t they?”
I looked closely at Aki-chan who was enthralled.
Remilia, a member of the old royal family and a princess.
As a beautiful, arrogant woman, she’s always trying to get in the way of the candidate’s success. The villain character. When the Queen solves all the issues and has a wedding, Remilia usually dies an untimely death or suffers a servant’s end. No one knows which end route Remilia is going towards…
Because it involves a poorly executed battle for the throne, Rose Garden is pretty crappy except for its happy endings. But even with the most positive happy ending, the end for the villain is always bad.
As it happens, in the hidden end of beloved childhood friend’s route, Lady Remilia as a young woman, had a crush on this childhood friend. She pretended to despise and evade Shin as a dragon race, but in fact, she loved him deeply.
Moreover, she even managed to drug him and take advantage of him during his confused state and secretly began to harbor feelings for him.
In this particular ending, Remilia conceived a baby born between her and the childhood friend, but she still ended up like her father. She commites suicide in the end, and gives up her own child to the queen and her husband, who were her rivals.
‘No! Oh no.’
I don’t care how easygoing I am, I’m not going to raise a child of my husband and his previous lover.
‘That’s force majeure!’
Ugh, that was a traumatic route.
‘You can’t force him, even if he’s a lord! No way!’
I wanted to be soothed by a pretty boy in a game to help me heal from stress and work. I don’t want to have any weird trauma.
However, that particular route, commonly known as the Remilia route, became wildly popular with some nerdy girls. Poor Remilia.
Remilia was cute as a tsundere, and the animation was drawn with a lot of romantic tension in the scenes between Remilia and Shin.
Apparently, the animation director for the game was a ShinRemi supporter.
I don’t admit it, but I am Her-Majesty-and-Shin school enthusiast.
“But the Rose Garden will only be left with the Prime Minister’s route if you clear the Priest-in-Chief’s route too!”
“Wow, this was going to be fun. Hurry up and clear it. I can’t wait to talk about the moe factor of both characters.”
“What? I don’t do trash talk.”
Aki-chan, who had a tendency to be trash, says with a wink.
The Prime Minister’s route involved the Prime Minister and Shin in a hilarious way. Apparently, the two of them work closely together to support Her Majesty the Queen, and was pretty popular. They even had a solo event.
“I’m more of a straightforward person, I guess.”
Ugh, there was a thick wall between me and my friend.
Time was definitely passing by quickly as we talked about this and that.
“Either way, just clear the route, okay?”
“Okay. Let’s play again when we both clear it.”
It’s been a few years since we graduated from college, and while most of our friends have grown apart due to the change in our environment, Aki and I have been regularly meeting up. That’s only because, more than anything else, we’re friends with a nerdy hobby that we can’t tell others about.
“Let’s do a book on both characters!”
“Yeah, no, then write a parody of Her Majesty’s and Shin’s new marriage today!”
We both waved our hands, saying that we didn’t want to do either of them.
“I’ll see you later….”
I never thought that this would be the last time I’d ever say goodbye.
I never dreamed that I would be involved in a car accident on the way home.

And then “I” was reminded of that, along with the pain that spread all over.
