“An annulment!?” I shouted in rage.
“We never really loved each other. Our fathers were the ones who arranged this whole engagement anyway” He said while stroking his lover’s hair.
“But I did” I mumbled.
“What?” he looked at me confused.
“I said I did!!! I did love you. I was so happy when I first heard we were engaged” I cried.
“But you never cared about my feelings, is that it? Do you want to make me miserable all my life? If you really loved me you’d accept the annulment with a smile” he smirked.
“Y-you!!! You’re a demon! And you’re a thieving cat!” The earth began to tremble and I blacked out with overwhelming pain and anger.
-3rd person pov-
“Leo!” The woman next to the prince called out.
“Don’t worry, I knew it would come to this”
The prince took out a white sword decorated with white wings near the grip of the sword with an aquamarine gem In the middle of his scabbard.
“B-but t-that sword-“
“Like I said don’t worry,” He said to the young woman.
He dashed towards the angry nine-tailed princess. She pulls out a sword surrounded by dark magic.
As their swords were about to clash, the prince ducked and stabbed the princess in the stomach.
“Finally, you finally got out of my way” the prince whispered in the dying girl’s ear.
“I-I curse you with your own cruel fate” She whispered back, then collapsed on the floor lifeless.
The prince stood up, his face with the blood of his ex-fiancé, and walked back to his shocked beloved.
“See? Nothing to worry about” He smiled.
“L-Leo?” The heroine asked shocked.
“Yes?” He answered.
“No, y-your not the Leo I know, y-your a monster!” The heroine quickly got on her feet and ran away as fast as possible.
“…” The prince clenched his fist and roared in anger.
Prince Leonard route
“*Yawn* Ugh, this is by far the worst ending in the entire game. They killed my favorite character again!” I got up and stretched.
“Well, I think it’s time to go to bed.” I got into bed, and put my glasses on my little table next to the bed then a few seconds later.
*kring* *kring* *kring*
“Hm?” I checked my phone, and saw that it was already 6:30 am!!
I quickly opened my curtains, and it was indeed sunrise.
“Whyyyy does this always happen to me???” I groaned.
I felt like the flash running around trying to get myself ready in 30 minutes.
I quickly washed my hair and dressed myself while grabbing an apple on my way out of the door then locking it.
‘Ok I have my comb, my phone, wallet, breakfast apple, I.D, and keys-‘ I abruptly stop searching for my house keys in my bag.
“*Whimper* I knew I should have stopped halfway instead of finishing the whole route!” I ran up the stairs as fast as I could and knocked on my landlord’s door.
“Mr. Yamamoto!? Mr. Yamamoto!!!” I called.
Finally, the door opened.
“Ah, Alicia, what are you doing here I was just about to-“
“Mr. Yamamoto! I’m so sorry for bothering you, but I locked myself out of the house again, could you please give me the spare key!?”
“Eh??? Again? *sigh* Alicia, you have to stop doing this”
“Yes, I’m very sorry! But I’ll be late to work so I’m in a big rush, please!!”
“*Sigh* ok I was going to town to pick up something for my wife anyway. Come on I’ll give you a ride, and the spare key”
“Thank you so much!!! Mr. Yamamoto, you are an angel!!” He scratched his head in embarrassment.
“It’s nothing, now come on you’ll be late to work right?”
“Ah! Thank you again!” On our way to work I asked Mr. Yamamoto to stop at the games shop, and I picked up the sequel of my favorite otome game.
‘Love against all odds’
Even though it has such a cheesy and cliché name the art was amazing, the story I’m not very sure about.
I know she’s the villainess but she’s so beautiful, and elegant, although her attitude is not always consistent, at the end of the game she always acts so differently from the beginning, and I blame the creator for that.
“Here we are, Alicia,” He pulled up in front of the giant building I worked at.
“Thank you again so much, Mr. Yamamoto!!! I promise I’ll make it up to you!”
“No need for that, just stop playing those video games till dawn ok?”
“Yes, thank you!” I ran to the door.
I went into the elevator and almost collapsed in exhaustion.
The door opened on the top floor, and I was greeted by an angry brother.
“Alicia,” He looked at me seriously.
“U-uh, g-good morning big brother!” I greeted him happily.
“Father wants to see you,” He said in a monotone voice.
“Ah, yes!” I rushed to my father’s office.
“Good morning, father,” I bow in respect.
“Don’t call me father while we’re at work.” He said sternly.
“Ah, yes, Mr. Tanaka,” I bow again.
“You’re late again.”
“I’m very sorry fa- M-Mr. Tanaka, I won’t let it happen again,”
“Where’s my coffee?” He asked.
“I will go prepare it now, Mr. Tanaka, and for you too, big brother,”
“Sir,” He said again in a monotone voice.
“Oh, Sir Ayden,” After that, I went down to the cafeteria and made their coffee.
I actually used to own a small Cafe that earned a lot, but I sold it to work here, at least I could put my great coffee-making skills to use.
I would do anything for my family.
“Oh, there’s no milk.” usually everyone would arrive a little later so there was no one here at the moment.
“I guess I could go and buy milk” So I went to buy milk.
But the convenience store was a little far but it wasn’t far enough for me to need a car to get there.
The road seemed empty but when I crossed the street a truck suddenly came out of nowhere. And the last thing I remember was a white light.
“Ugh… Where…” I woke up in a grand Lavender-colored room in a giant princess bed.
“Snowflake!!!” A handsome man With pure white hair and crystal sky blue eyes suddenly barged into the room and hugged me.
“Who? Are you?” I said, baffled.
“*Gasp* honey!” He stood up abruptly.
Then a beautiful woman with light blonde hair and sparkling gold eyes appeared near the door.
“What is it? *Gasp* sweetie!” Then she also hugged me.
“Sweetie? What’s wrong?”
“Who are you, people?” I asked confused.
“… Sweetie? I-it’s me mommy Lillian,”
“Lillian, and Victor Sterling, do those names ring a bell, Snowflake?”
‘Sterling? As in…’
“I-is my name Snow Sterling?”
“Yes! Sweetie, your name is Snow!”
“Darling, I think we should let her rest,” Said the woman sadly.
“We’ll check on you later ok Snowflake?” with that he closed the door, then I ran to the mirror.
‘White beach curls, dark blue eyes, porcelain skin’
“No way… Did I?…”
‘I think I reincarnated into my favorite otome game ‘Love against all odds’ as my favorite character and the villainess who meets the cruelest fate.
