Chapter 28: Wedding Ceremony

(T/N: Where have I been? Sleeping and sulking depression. Well I was supposed to update yesterday, but I had (and still have) some troubles with chapter 29. Like I’m crying (mentally) as I am trying to get through this. I need help…

I will try my best to update, but I don’t guarantee daily updates. Sorry… Well enjoy this chapter!)

Edit: Thanks to everyone for the translation suggestion! and thank you Kiriko for the big help in this chapter once again! 🙂

*POV: Shane*

On the day of the wedding, the sky was clear. I never thought of myself as HareOtoko, but after coming to this world, I had been blessed with good weather at crucial times.

  • (HareOtoko is a person who brings good weather with them everywhere.)

This morning, I was busy with preparing for the wedding. I had a stylist do my hair and makeup, and then Elias helped me change into the indigo wedding dress.

Having spent several all-nighters for this day, upon seeing my appearance, the seamstresses were slightly moved to tears. I was a little relieved when Elias also told me that it suited me. In any case, it was important that I didn’t appear in front of a large number of citizens wearing rags.

Being careful not to step on the hem (of the dress), I went towards the entrance hall of the castle. When I got there, Leonhart-sama was already waiting there.The figure of this man wearing a white, ceremonial military outfit was just like a picture of a character in a fairy tale. I haven’t met Leonhart-sama since the first day’s meeting.

“I have kept you waiting.”

“No, not really.” Leonhart-sama turned to me and answered, and then looked at [confirmed?] my appearance. “That dress, it suits you.” He complimented me.

“Thank you. However, I am not accustomed to these sort of dresses, so I get nervous.”

After having a polite conversion, Leonhart-sama lent me his hand to help me on to the carriage. We rode through the streets, and went toward the church for the wedding ceremony.

While looking at the scenery from the carriage, I remembered the fairy tales I read when I was a child. Never have I imagined myself inside a carriage like this. Moreover, I am even wearing a wedding dress.

I gave a small wave to the citizens. I was taught one way of waving very strictly.

“Are there no discomforts with your living conditions?” Leonhart-sama suddenly questioned.

“Yes. Thanks to you, everyday is enjoyable, but I am worried Elias is receiving unjust treatment as a knight because of me.”  

Even though the person himself showed his understanding, I was still worried about the matter.

“If that’s the case, it will be alright. Elias was appointed as a guard due to Ekart’s recommendation. Ekart wouldn’t make a mistake in selecting a personnel. Besides, Elias seemed willing to be taught by my maids.”

I’m a little convinced that that’s how he was skillful in making black tea.

“Is that so? That’s a relief.”

No matter what, the conversations with Leonhart-sama don’t last long. It was unnecessary to be conscious of the “cool strategy”. However, this strategy might be the best way to go. I think he (Leonhart) would do a better job since he is so unfriendly, and he doesn’t look like he’s acting.

After a short while, we arrived at the church. Inside the church, there was a wide, chalky, white room where the ring exchange was being performed. The ring exchange was watched by this country’s authorities and representatives of the neighboring countries’. Perhaps this culture was conveyed [taught] by the first generation Prime Minister, but it has achieved its own evolution in Caspar. It was so that the rings were the color of each other’s eyes.

To be exact, on my left hand was a blue ring that was the color of Leonhart-sama’s eyes, and on Leonhart-sama’s left hand was a shiney, purple ring of my eye color. I was fascinated by the mysterious radiance the rings held.

However, I was brought back into reality and was surprised by the priest’s words. “Well then, please complete the vow with a kiss.”

I was dumbfounded that this tradition had also been passed down. I hadn’t heard about it (at all).

To my surprise, Leonhart-sama’ right hand was on my left cheek. When I looked up, naturally, there were blue eyes looking straight at me. When I was gazing at the blue eyes that were more beautiful than the ring, they approached me, and then our lips touched.

Stealing a kiss, Leonhart-sama separated from me, “Let’s become a good family.” he whispered.

When I heard that, at last the kiss processed and my mind had finally caught up. Turning bright red, I gave a small nod.


T/N: So… How was the chapter? Was it okay? There are a lot of stuff I need to fix. I will edit this later. I did kind of crappy on this chapter, but I will fix it.

If you see any errors, if you find a better way of wording, if you find the correct translation, just comment and I will change it!

Thanks for reading!

      Maybe ” wasn’t aware of this part of the tradition also being passed down.”

    聞いていなかった should means sth like, I haven’t heard of(about) this (before). About there would also be the tradition of kissing after the vow haha.

    as for the translation you needed help with, it goes along the lines of “I didn’t hear about this!” or “I never heard about this!”

    you did a good job. don’t be so hard on yourself. Japanese light novels can be difficult to translate. especially when the author uses non-standard grammar.

    For the sake of staying up all night for this day, seeing my appearance, the seamstresses were slightly moved to tears. Although, I was also a little relieved that Elias said that it suited me. Anyways, it was necessary that I don’t show up in trashy clothing* in front of the citizens (the people). –> Having spent several all-nighters for this day, upon seeing my appearance, the seamstresses were slightly moved to tears.

    You’re doing a good job in my opinion. 😊 Don’t get too stressed out about updates, it’s okay to take your time. And whenever you’re not sure how to translate something, just put it in the footnotes and ask for help or translate it the way you think it makes sense. At least that’s how I usually do things =3= lol

    Yaay, thanks for the update,,
    I think your translations is pretty easy to understood , don’t worry to much *hugs*
    Sometimes we have to be creative when translating so that the story flow more smoothly. Recently I’ve been trying to translate some Chinese wn, and develped a new-found admiration to all translators. In my opinion they’re not only translating, but retelling the story too! So yeah, sometimes I have to bend the translations a little in order to convey the story better.
