(Um, Sorry) I’ve Been Reincarnated! - Chapter 19
019 - It's Good I'm Betrayed (Last Part)
TN: 1 more. Do you guys want the author's note? I am getting tired of it. Most of it is about how high her web novel is ranked at and how she cannot believe and how she thanks her readers.
I think I'll only translate it if there's anything interest. So there.
Right in the middle, a thick, huge table stood.
On the wall across, a huge window.
It gave the entire room a bright impression.
This is the room I had just received.
John and I are sitting opposite, facing each other at the table.
’’ Ah, Mary San, thank you. ’’
Mary San made tea and as it is, left the room.
’’ ....... ’’
’’ ....... ’’
Somehow, John is making a stiff face as he looked at me, coupled that with his upturned eyes, he looked scary.
’’ ...Erm... ’’
When I spoke, he jumped and soften his nervous expression.
’’ Ah, I am sorry. ’’
He smiled, embarrassed and looked straight at me.
’’ I unknowingly got nervous. As you know, I am John Veltor, and I will be working as your tutor from today onward. ’’
Till now, he had defy all of my expectations. His soft manner, polite tone of speaking, none of it says 'prideful wicked noble'.
I put down my guard and relaxed my tensed body.
....I am sorry for misunderstanding you.
With that meaning in mind, I bow my head.
’’ Yes, I will be in your care. I am Williams Beryl, please call me Will. ’’
When I said that, John looked shocked.
...Hm? I did do anything weird?
For the time being, I cannot think of anything so I just continued.
’’ Erm, what should I call Veltor Sama? ’’
And John's shocked expression changed into a good humored smile.
’’ You can call me however you prefer. Only... ’’
With that, he had a seemingly wry smile and a mischievous expression.
’’ ..not Veltor please. ’’
Ah, I see.
I finally believed that, indeed, this man, as rumors said, had abandon his family name. Right now, he seems like a honest and gentlemanly fellow and I cannot sense any bad vibes from him nor he seems like the type who uses flattery.
In fact, he feels a bit like a puppy...
Ah...I can't deny the possibility that he might be a sly fox...
According to my instinct, he is not a bad guy.
Happy by this fact, my face is full of smiles.
’’ Then, John Sensei! Would that be all right? ’’
Hey, if it's a tutor, then it cannot be anything other than Sensei right!
Once I said that, John Sensei beamed at me.
...What is this sense of defeat? Hm.
He is beautiful. He is handsome. He is a bespectacled Ikemen prodigy.
...And also a gentleman.
It might had been he was nervous before. Now that I look at him again, y first impression was not wrong. He is really a Ikeman. This is the first time I feel an intimacy with a black pupil, black haired person ever since I arrived in this world.
Grrr.... I'm jealous.
It's okay! In the future even with an average face I will be popular!
’’ By the way, Will Sama. ’’
I nearly drown in the tears of my thoughts before John Sensei's voice pulled me back to reality.
’’ John Sensei, please stop with the 'Sama'. ’’
Again with the formal tone! As a tutor we are going to be together for a long time to come and if we are to be this formal, my upper lip is going to go stiff! [TN: In orginal text : My shoulders is going to go stiff. ] Ah, this is not a pun...you there, don't say that it's cold! [TN: Cold jokes = pun...get it?] It is an accident, just an accident.
’’ Then... Will San ’’
’’ Will alone is fine. ’’
’’ ...Eh...That is a bit... ’’
’’ It's okay because you are my Sensei! ’’
I am getting slightly impatient. With a slightly troubled face, Sensei finally agree to call me Will.
’’ Ah yes Sensei, what is the matter? ’’
I remembered he wanted to say something. John Sensei expression turned serious.
’’ Ah. It's just..If you don't mind me asking, it is a little early for a 3 year old to have a tutor. I was wondering if you made this request or is it Sir Gion's idea? ’’
This person's eye sparkles whenever the topic is about Father. He really seems to admire Father. Me too, apart from his face, aim to be like Father.
Sorry for dashing your hope...
I gave a small bitter smile.
’’ No, it was me who requested. ’’
John Sensei looked very shocked.
...Yep, I'm sorry for betraying your expectations...
But Sensei too, betrayed my expectations so I am not in the wrong!
’’ It's Will...? But why? I don't mean to be rude but boys at your age usually only think about having fun. ’’
’’ I don't know anything. I am proud seeing Father so needed (busy) but as for me, I can't help with anything... ’’
I looked at Sensei with a mischievous glint in my eyes.
’’ ...And I am frustrated with that. ’’
With a shocked expression, Sensei sat there, stunned.
I said something outrageous, didn't I? But there is no choice, it's true! I can never understand the conversations carried on over my head and it is so vexing.
’’ So that is why.. ’’
After a while, a happy smile floats up on Sensei's face.
’’ Well then, let's study hard as soon as possible, shall we, Will? ’’
What a good smile you have there, John Sensei.
...Eh....is this person possible...a Sparta 'S'....?
Me, whose expectations is splendidly betrayed.
AN: John Sensei, a sparta...is he?
Next chapter, all will be revealed...maybe.
TN: Muhahaha, what an easy chapter. Most of it is copy and paste from the digest chapter 003. Enjoy!
