e furious if someone chastised Ms.
The play happened in the afternoon.
The group doing the play began to move around in a hurry.
On the other side, the Hongou twins and I were supposed to see off Lord Takeru Hongou and Lady Youko, but I held back.
My presence there would prevent Lady Sara and Lord Souju from being pampered by their grandparents.
And, Lady Youko wouldn't be able to spoil her grandchildren.
I said that I would go to the bathroom and bid Lord Takeru Hongou and Lady Youko farewell.
Lord Takeru Hongou must have sensed my intention and quietly thanked me.
As expected of the man.
When I returned to the school grounds by myself, my costumed classmates were there.
Lord Ryou Takanashi playing Romeo wasn't wearing puffy breeches.
I was a bit let down.
As I thought that, I heard a nostalgic voice from behind.
“Ryou, I've come to see you.”
Lord Ryou Takanashi smiled and waved his hand.
I slowly turned around.
It was Ms.
Fuki I've wanted to see again.
When I attempted to extend my hand out, Ms.
Fuki pretended not to notice.
I screamed on the spot, but Ms.
Fuki didn't even look at me and left.
When I tried to chase after her, Lord Ryou Takanashi firmly grabbed my shoulder.
I had a feeling, but are you the one who pushed around Grandma Fuki?!”
I turned around.
I didn't know why Ms.
Fuki left without saying anything.
Did she truly hate me? After Lady Mary passed away, did she no longer care about me who was just on the side?
Those thoughts circled around my head.
“It is you, isn't it?! I heard from Grandpa! You spent Grandma Fuki's money to indulge in luxury.
Moreover, you pushed her around even though she was so kind!”
That was true.
I couldn't object.
“Don't you dare appear in front of her again! She can't get her life back.
You guys are the worst!”
That was right.
Fuki was now free to live her life.
She had adored Lady Mary, but she wasn't obligated to raise me.
I was a freeloader.
Lord Takanashi glared at me and chased after Ms.
I couldn't put my thoughts into words and just stood there.
The classmates who were in the group for the play watched the whole charade play out and looked at me while whispering something.
I was the granddaughter of the arrogant and unpleasant Lady Mary.
I was garbage.
I was the emperor's new clothes.
Why did I exist?
In my daze, I felt someone grab my arm.
“Rei, are you okay?”
I returned to my senses.
And, when I looked at who called out to me, the childish prince, Lord Katsuragi was there.
Thank you for your concern.
I'm fine now, so please let go.”
I wanted to get away from here.
I no longer wished to be here.
“You don't look fine at all.
Do you need to go to the infirmary?”
“No, it's fine.
So, please let go.”
“Alright! I'll bring you to the infirmary!”
Just as he was about to hold me like he had during the entrance exam, Lord Madenokouji called me.
Kujouin, my grandmother— Hey, Kaoru, what are you doing?!”
Lord Madenokouji stopped Lord Katsuragi.
Kujouin, are you okay?”
“There is no problem.
I made a prior agreement with Lady Sara and Lord Souju, so I'll excuse myself.”
I needed to get away from here.
I turned on my heel and headed to the salon where the Hongou twins were.
It hurt so much that I couldn't breathe.
Colors faded from my world.
My mind was empty.
I focused solely on walking to the salon.
When I only needed a few more steps to reach it, I encountered Lady Sara and Lord Souju.
I talked to them as if nothing had happened, and after we sat down for a meal, we decided to leave early without watching the play.
At that time, I didn't at all remember what we talked about or how I acted.
I responded as I usually did, but I had no memory.
I couldn't think of anything.
I couldn't cry.
I couldn't believe anything.
I simply wanted to go home.
I only remembered that I didn't want to be there.
By the time I realized it, I was being driven home by Mr.
I have dropped this novel due to a lack of interest.
While I did like it in the beginning, Reiko's passiveness is a bit draining.
If anyone wants to pick it up again, please feel free to.
