Volume 9: Rondo of Fire and Love
The Thirty-third Chapter
by Yura Kairi
Translation by Marfisa
I don't like it,
being carried away by love and romance.
I absolutely don't believe in fortune-telling and spells.
If relationships with other people were so clear cut, I wouldn't go through this trouble.
People are a pain.
If this were a programmed machine,
as long as there were blueprints, I could put together anything.
Zephel- Luva, are you here?
Luva- Ah, Zephel, it's unusual, you coming to the library.
Zephel- Luva, about you,
Zephel- Since yesterday, have you had any strange emotional excitement, or not being able to
sleep... or else violent palpitations, that kind of thing?
Luva- Come on, I'm not old enough to be having such worries yet.
*Oh, come on.*
Zephel- No! It's not that.
Luva- Oh? What's that thing you're holding?
Rosa- Hello. I came to return the book you recommended to me yesterday.
Luva- Ah, hello Rosalia.
Luva- Ah, you didn't have to read it in such a hurry!
Rosa- No. It was very interesting so I finished reading it in no time.
Luva- Really? There's a continuation to it too, it's also interesting.
Luva- Ah, please wait a minute, okay?
Rosa- Hello, Zephel-sama.
Zephel- ... You've gone to the Fortune-telling Hall, haven't you.
Rosa- What about it?
Zephel- Fortune-telling and spells are unrealistic child's play.
It's the spice in a game of love.
Rosa- What are you trying to say?
Zephel- You're going to become Queen, aren't you?
You rarely get discouraged, and I was thinking that you have a lot of backbone for a girl.
Zephel- That you might become a good Queen...
Zephel- Despite that.
Zephel- Ah geez, whatever, it's so annoying.
Zephel- Sorry to have bothered you.
Luva- Oh? Did Zephel end up leaving?
I won't have my emotions controlled by a spell!
Zephel- Building something like this...
Ange- I came a little early.
I often meet Randy-sama at the park, but
I'm excited at the thought of the two of us alone on a "date".
Randy- Did I keep you waiting?
Ange- No, I came early.
Randy- Um... For now, shall we walk?
Randy- Y... your continent.
Randy- What's the population?
*You're doing that?*
Randy- Wah, you.
Randy- Did your owner leave you behind again?
Boy1- Oh, it's Randy-sama.
Boy- And the Queen Candidate girl.
Boy- I get it, it's a date!!
Boy1- It's a date. It's a date.
Boy1- A date at the park!
Randy- Will you stop it!!
Boy2- Kissing in the shade of the trees.
Boys- *Date, date.*
Girl- An amusement park arrived today.
An amusement park?
Randy- It's a traveling carnival.
Ange- It's like a festival.
Randy- *Here, form a line!*
Randy- It kind of always ends up this way.
Ange- It's okay that it's lively, isn't it?
Ange- Everyone really likes you, Randy-sama.
Ange- I... I like you too, Randy-sama.
*What am I saying...*
You look like you're having fun, but
I'm sure you invited me on a date under the effect of the spell.
Even though those feeling are an illusion,
Despite that, I...
Ange- Randy-sama? What's the matter?
Ange- You don't seem cheerful.
Randy- It's nothing like that.
I'm proud that I can serve Her Majesty as a Guardian.
Randy- Her Majesty is the supreme woman I love and respect more than anyone.
As Her Majesty's Guardian, I...
Randy- There's... something I have to tell you.
Randy- Do you know about the spells at the Fortune-telling Hall?
Ange- It raises the affinity of people who want to be friends.
When it's the strongest spell, it also has the effect of love...
Ange- Bind the hearts of someone and someone!! Love Love Flash!!
Ange- What am I saying!
Randy- ... It seems Sara-san cast that on you.
Randy- You probably decided to go on a date with me under the effect of the Love Love Flash.
Randy- If that's the case, I think those aren't your real feelings.
Not knowing, I'm sure you would get hurt later.
I'll do a special spell as a service.
Ange- ... No way.
Randy- I... knew that but agreed to the invitation for a date.
Because I wanted to go on a date with you.
Randy- But after all, this isn't fair!
Randy- I... heard you went on a date with Oscar-sama.
Randy- I was thinking I absolutely didn't want to lose to Oscar-sama.
Randy- I was annoyed at always being treated like a child.
I intended to show Oscar-sama I went on a date I could boast about.
A Love Love Flash...
Randy- So I...
took advantage of the illusion of your Love Love Flash.
Ange- Then, Randy-sama,
you agreed to the date because you didn't want to lose to Oscar-sama?
Ange- I don't know about the Love Love Flash!
I asked for a date because I was thinking I liked you.
you meant it to be a contest with Oscar-sama.
Randy- I didn't mean it...
Ange- I'm not a medal or trophy.
Randy- No! I never thought of you that way.
Ange- No, let go!
... You're right.
Before I knew it, I was aware of the contest with Oscar-sama.
... This sucks!
Ange- I'm so confused.
Ange- I thought I liked Randy-sama.
Was it all because of the Love Love Flash?
My heart was fluttering so much,
and I got excited on my own,
I wonder if I just got carried away by the romantic mood...
Randy-sama agreed to the date because he didn't want to lose to Oscar-sama.
Ange- Oh no, geez.
Why am I crying.
It wasn't really because he liked me.
Why is it so painful?
Is it all because of the Love Love Flash?
You're tickling me.
Ange- If you don't cut it out, I'll do a rib attack.
Dog- *excited bark*
Randy- I found you.
Randy- Tomorrow, let's go to the Fortune-telling Hall together!
And have the spell canceled.
Randy- The Love Love Flash has nothing to do with it!
Because my feelings won't change.
Randy- I don't want to lose to Oscar-sama because I like you.
I like you, Ange.
Pastha- Sara, about that spell.
Sara- Don't say it, Pastha.
Sara- ... That Love Love Flash was ineffective.
Sara- It's not because you interrupted.
I didn't cast it.
Sara- And yet you got angry without giving me a chance to explain, so unintentionally,
I stubbornly ended up lying.
Pastha- *It's alright.*
Sara- ... A long time ago I tried to cast a similar spell.
Sara- Though I had come to like you, I thought I didn't attract your interest.
The Fire Dragon Clan and Water Dragon Clan are enemies.
This love is unrequited.
Sara- But I couldn't do it.
Even if I took a shortcut with mysterious magic,
Sara- So now I can tell everyone without shame that I love you.
That can't be called the achievement of real love.
Pastha- How silly.
Pastha- I loved you since long before you noticed me.
Pastha- I'm glad if you just look and smile at me.
