Chapter 273 : Game Of Love


「Fwahahaha!! Celine, do you think you can leave without my permission!?」(Deel)

Right before we got into the carriage, Deel appeared from the forest next to Tori-san’s house.

He was floating, so he probably used Levitation Magic he once taught me to get here quickly.

「ーFire Arrow!」(Celine)

Without answering Deel, Celine immediately shot her Fire Arrow at him, but he swiftly blocked it with water magic.

「Water Shield!」(Deel)



「Fwahahaha! I won’t let my guard down like before!」(Deel)

Realizing that a disastrous battle had begun, Kazuul-san quickly moved and stood next to his carriage and stretched his arms, trying to protect his carriage.

Meanwhile, Tori-san and Signa came out of the house. Probably because they heard the loud sound of Celine and Deel’s spells colliding with each other.

「Oi, what’s happening!? …Ah, I see. I had a feeling it would end up like this… Signa, you stay behind me.」(Tori)


Tori-san realized what was happening as soon as he saw Deel. He then asked Signa to stay back.

While grabbing her great-grandpa’s shirt from behind, Signa looked at me and Nicola with a worried face.

「Hey, Celine! If you want to fight him, then go ahead! It’s not my problem! But don’t burn the forest!」(Tori)

「I know! I tried to one shot him, but… Dammit!」(Celine)

Celine looked so irritated. While holding the magic wand she quickly took out from her cleavage before anyone realized it, she took a few steps backward, taking some distance from Deel.

「Fwahaha! Celine, you haven’t finished your Portal Stone, have you? I won’t allow you to leave the village without a Portal Stone!」(Deel)

「I don’t need your permission to leave this village! But just so you know. I have my Portal Stone! It’s already complete!」(Celine)

Celine took out her Portal Stone from her cleavage and held it up, showing it to Deel who was floating in the air.

「Wha… No way! Celine, you need three years to complete a Portal Stone, right? How did you…」(Deel)

「Hmph. You think I will reveal the method to you? If you thought that I hadn’t completed my Portal Stone, then how did you know that I would be leaving this village today?」(Celine)

「Khu khu! Isn’t it obvious? It was because of the miracle of love! Somehow, I had a strong feeling that you would leave me this morning! Therefore, I woke up early and dashed here because I thought you would say goodbye to Tori jii-san!」(Deel)

「Tsk…! Your intuition is disgustingly sharp as ever…」(Celine)

「Intuition? No, I told you it’s the miracle of love! It seems that the goddess of love doesn’t want us to be separated~」(Deel)

「Gross! You’re so gross!」(Celine)

Celine rubbed her own arms as if she was getting goosebumps.

She kept stepping backward, while Deel kept moving toward her.

Suddenly, someone stood between them and faced Deel, trying to stop him.

It was Ester.

She seemed to be annoyed with Deel as well.

「Deel-san, you know that Celine has rejected you so many times, don’t you? I think it’s time for you to give up.」(Ester)

Listening to Ester, Deel was dumbfounded for a moment, but he then smiled and shook his head lightly as if saying, “This child knows nothing”.

「Ester, you’re still a child, so it can’t be helped that you still don’t understand. Let me tell you. There is no giving up in a game of love!」(Deel)

「Game of… love…?」(Ester)

「Yup. Women can often be unpredictable and complicated. Sometimes, a woman rejects a man not because she hates him, but because she’s worried that the man might not seriously love her. What do you think the man should do to prove that his love for her is real? There’s only one right answerー The man has to confess his feelings toward her over and over again no matter how many times he gets rejected until the woman believes that the man truly loves her!」(Deel)

So… In other words… This man thinks that he is a famous celebrity who confesses to an ordinary woman (Celine), but she (Celine) doesn’t believe it and thinks that it must be a prank from a television program or something, so in order to make the woman (Celine) believes, he has to confess to her many times…

Something like that…?

I can see the point but… What a strange and absurd reasoning…

Ester seemed to be of the same mind. She frowned and opened her mouth wide.

Listening to Deel’s ridiculous reasoning, Celine became even madder.

She glared at Deel with eyes full of anger. It’s only a matter of time before she explodes and burns the entire forest.

Deel, who didn’t realize how mad she was at him, turned to her and smiled.

「Celine, I want you to feel the warmth of my love this winter. I think you will definitely accept my love when you feel how warm it is in the coldness of the winter. But… Since you already have a Portal Stone, it’s hard for me to make you stay in this village… Hmm… Ah, I know! I’ve come up with a good idea!」(Deel)

After thinking for a moment, trying to find a way to make Celine stay longer in this village, Deel stretched up his long elfen ears and turned his face toward me.

「Kid, I decided to use you to make Celine stay longer!」(Deel)


Use me…?

I don’t know what he is planning, but does he think that I will cooperate with him?

「Khu khu khu. Say, Kid, don’t you want a Portal Stone? You can return here and meet the people you care about in this village whenever you want if you have it. You can even invite your parents and friends here. So, what do you say?」(Deel)
