Role of (Villain/Heroine)

Role of (Villain/Heroine) Chapter 15.2

From the comments I see there may have been some confusion. I made a character list if you don’t remember who’s who. Kamo Tomotaka is the capturable character, a student and the one contracted to Chako. Kamo Tomoyuki is the school’s director. Yui was shocked when he introduced himself because he shares the same surname as Tomotaka (one of the people she wants to avoid) and Kamo is a family of onmyouji. Chako mentioned him once in chapter 6.2 about giving bursaries. If you read closely you’ll see there’s foreshadows and hints for different things in this series.

I Play the Role of a Heroine

 My parents and the teacher are conversing about something, unbeknownst to my condition.
Wanting to escape from here, my body fidgets restlessly.

 There’s someone named『Kamo』here too.
Is this a coincidence?
Did I choose something, again?
Translated at nakimushitl.wordpress.com
 My stomach clenches tightly.

 I shouldn’t have come to school after all.
I’m an idiot. Why did I come?

“Yui, Yui! Have you been listening?”

 As my body fidgets restlessly, mum hits my shoulder and warns me.
Naturally, I haven’t been listening. I look at mum with my brows knitted.
Mum gives a small sigh at such a me and stands up from the sofa.

“Father and mother will be talking to your homeroom teacher. Stay here okay, Yui.”
“Eh!?”
“Hold yourself together.”

 Wait! I stand up in a hurry but my parents leave me behind and exit the room.
The teacher leaves too and only the director and I are left in the room.

 What should I do.
Translated at nakimushitl.wordpress.com
 My heart beats like an alarm bell.
This is bad.
This is undoubtedly a bad situation.

 I’ve made sure that I didn’t get involved in anyone so I wouldn’t make any choice but it’s all come to nothing.
I consider for a bit but, sure enough, I judge that I shouldn’t stay here.
Prepared for my parents’ anger later, I turn towards the door to leave the room.
When I do so, a kind voice sounds out from behind.

“I know what you’ve been doing.”

 I quickly turn back at the unexpected words.
There, my eyes meet with kind, light blue ones. He slowly nods at me.

“You don’t have to be so vigilant. I’m your ally.”

 Shocked, I can’t help but stare into those kind eyes.
Translated at nakimushitl.wordpress.com
 What did this person say again?
That he knows what I’ve been doing…
And, that, he’s my ally…

“I’m the child of the previous Priestess of Ominous Clouds.”

 He, laughs gently.
Unable to move, I simply continue to stare at him.

“I know you have a lot you want to say but… won’t you take a seat first?”

 I sink my body into the sofa, as though urged by those light blue eyes.
After affirming that I sat at the edge of the sofa, the director continues to speak.

“Although I said I know what you’ve been doing, I don’t know everything. It’s just that, I’ve a feeling that ‘today’ had taken place a number of times before.”
“… Yes.”
“Have you been doing something?”
“… I’ve been turning back time.”

 Turning my gaze away from the light blue eyes, I answer with my head down.
Unexpectedly, there’s someone besides me who has memory of the repeated period.
There hadn’t been a person like that so far.
Translated at nakimushitl.wordpress.com
 So the director knew.
So there had been someone besides me who knew.

“I see, the time it is. Perhaps I can sense just a little of the phenomenon you caused because I have just a little of the Priestess of Ominous Clouds’ power.”

 The director leisurely crosses his arms before his body and stares at the table in front of him as though in thought.
I glance at such a director and voice my question.

“Erm, is the previous Priestess of Ominous Clouds still alive?”

 The director said he’s the child of a Priestess of Ominous Clouds.
He still looks young. In that case, she may still be alive.
Are Priestesses of Ominous Clouds unexpectedly born in close intervals?
If so, I want to try meeting her.
I want to talk to her about this power of mine.
Translated at nakimushitl.wordpress.com
 I.
I want to discuss about my worries.

 I don’t want to be alone anymore.

 When it feels like I’m about to lose control due to the overflowing feelings from my heart, I take a slow, deep breath.
The director looks at such a me gently and answers.

“No, she passed already.”

 Disappointment spreads in my heart at his words.

 I see.
Sure enough, there’s no one I can talk to.
I can only shoulder it alone…

 My brows furrow and I stare at the floor.

“It’s been 150 years since she passed after all.”
“Eh?”
Translated at nakimushitl.wordpress.com
 I’ve been feeling down by myself but I raised my head at the director’s words.
As always, he’s looking at me kindly.

“How old do I look to you?”

 Perplexed, my eyes swim in at the question thrown by the director.
This person… how old is he?
The previous Priestess of Ominous Clouds passed away more than 150 years ago.
However, the director said he’s her child… in that case, his age?

“You look about only 38…”

 I shake my head to erase the number that came up in my head and voice out what I guessed from his appearance.
The director chuckles gently as his eyes shine with mischief.

“I’m, already over 200 years old.”
“200 years old…”
Translated at nakimushitl.wordpress.com
 My mind can’t keep up with the overly unreal words.
I thought the director was joking with me but his eyes narrow gently again.

“That’s right. I’m a half-breed from the Priestess of Ominous Clouds and a phantom. ――A half-human and -phantom.”

 A half-human and -phantom.
To think there’s someone like that.

 I studied with Yuusei-kun so I understand a bit about phantoms.
True, phantoms live longer than humans.
Lifespan varies depending on the spiritual power possessed. The stronger it is, the longer you live.
… However, Kuo-sensei is an exception.

 If a child can be born between a human and a phantom, it’s possible that that child has a longer lifespan than humans.
I’ve never heard of it except from the director here though.

“I’m a half-phantom and half-human. Moreover, an onmyouji from the Kamo family who inherited a little of the Priestess of Ominous Clouds’ power. I’m also this academy’s director.”

 I’ve been shocked silly ever since I met the director.
As usual, when I stare at him with my mouth gaped, his light blue eyes returns my gaze kindly.
Translated at nakimushitl.wordpress.com
“How’s that? There’s no one more useful to be your ally, you know?”

 Light blue eyes drag out the shut-in me.
They’re telling me not to worry by myself, to try telling him.

“Won’t you tell me? What you’ve been doing.”

 I can’t tell him.
Didn’t I decide not to choose anything, not to be involved with anyone?
Yes, this person may be someone incredible.
However, it will surely be the same as up till now.
Holding expectations, I’ll work hard…

 However, Chako won’t take my hand.

 My heart hurts.
My heart hurts!

“――Yes.”

 Before I knew it, I nodded.
Translated at nakimushitl.wordpress.com
 Ah, oh well.
I went and said it.

 This is probably making a choice of some sort.
Once again, I touch upon the fate wherein Chako disappears.

 Chako’s smile appears in my head.
That smile seems extremely far away somehow.

 Come to think of it, I haven’t always been receiving her smiles.
When was the last time I saw Chako’s smile?

 So far away.

 Chako’s extremely far away.
