CH 7 – “Gefarnate Engel” – Reincarnated as a Dark Elf ~The strongest magician conquers a parallel world~

(TL Note: This chapter has some graphic scenes. Those who are not comfortable with please don’t read on. Also, there was a typo in the title, I fixed it so it made sense with the rest of the story.)

A demon with an angel ‘s face, or an angel with a demon’s face, in a pink dress left the nobleman’s mansion.

Celica borrowed something from the nobleman’s mansion.
That something was an antique weapon that was in the mansion.

In the noble’s mansion where the party was held, my mother’s place of work, the family has a military lineage and has served as military personnel for generations. That is why there are suitable weapons everywhere.

Out of the weapons there, Celica borrowed three of the biggest Zweihänder swords.

Zweihänder is a big sword that is held with both hands.
As she looked up, the blade is bigger than Celica.
In the display case where this big sword was kept, the sword’s history was written down.

[The head of the first generation of the Dreahit family, used this large sword to slay a large dragon and built the foundation of the Grantz empire.]

This exaggerated legend was written there.

By the way, since there are dragons and goblins in this world, that legend may be true.

In short, this sword is the heirloom of Dreahit family.
If this sword disappears, the Dreahit family will be in an uproar.

If anyone finds out, not only will mother be fired, in order to take responsibility, the parent and child may be sent to forced labor camps.

Even with such outrageous penalties waiting, Celica didn’t take these swords without thinking.

There are two reasons for bringing this large sword.

First, this large sword certainly contains magical power just as the legend told, and it seems it will be of great use in the upcoming battle.

Second, the Dreahit household is in an uproar about the dead body found in a men’s restroom. If it’s now no one should notice the sword is missing.

These are the reasons.

In other words, Celica will use this large sword, quickly rescue Lunelize, and take advantage of the turmoil to return the treasure sword to its original position.

She doesn’t know if it will go well, but it seemed to be the best way to save Lunelize, and she couldn’t come up with anything else.

Celica looks in the direction of the ambush on Lunelize which the man, who was killed a while ago, gave up.
It is about 5 kilometers southwest from this mansion.

It is a bridge leading to an area where the villas of royal family are built.

So now, the evildoers who are aiming for Lunelize are on the alert and waiting there.

Celica climbs on and straddles the big sword she will use to save Lunelize.
When she confirmed that the big sword began to glow a pale light, Celica casted a spell.

[ Because only iron saves us,
Because only blood rectifies,
From the crimes of heavy iron chains,
From the sins of evil arrogance.]

As she unleashed the spell, the big sword began to grow brighter.
The large sword became buoyant, and the girl straddling it started to float in the air.

[――Wonderful. Truly wonderful. So, this is magic.] Celica

She grinned. A devilish smile covered her face.

Celica knew that there is magic in this world, but it was the first time she actually used it.

She was worried if it would work, but apparently it seems her magical talent is quite high.

[God granted me an unwanted death and new body, but in exchange it seems that God gave me plenty of good stuff in this reincarnated body] Celica

With that big sword lightly floating and the girl that is straddling the sword, it looks like a broom that a witch would fly on.

In this world the existences with magic power called “magicians” ride such treasure swords and weapons, and played a role like modern aircraft fighters and tanks during war.

If Celica enters the military academy, and is recruited for her aptitude, she will definitely be trained as a magician.

This will greatly serve in all of Celica’s plans.

[Even though I was forced to be in a body that can only pee sitting down, having this magic power alone makes it worth it.] Celica

After doing something unusual as thanking God, she supplies magic to the large sword and increases the buoyancy.

After flying over several dozen meters in the sky, Celica rode the big sword to the point of the ambush.

The large sword flew at the speed of a fighter aircraft.

The large sword left magical residue and it looked like a comet was gliding through the night sky.

I arrive at the problem point in no time.

The ambush had already started.
The continuous sounds of gunfire and swords clashing could be heard.
That place was just like battlefield.

Lunelize group looked like they prepared a proper escort befitting someone of the imperial family, but the raiders seemed to have prepared even more troops.

Clearly the Lunelize group was struggling.
A circle of dead bodies could be found around the girl.

Even though a majority of the escorts have been killed, their fighting spirit didn’t wane. They may deserve praise, in a way, trying to fight to the end.

Meanwhile, what about the attackers’ side.
Without using the full force of the large army they had, they went with only a small group of attackers and couldn’t land the decisive blow.

[Honestly, these people do not know the s in strategy. If I was attacking, I would kidnap the princess in a more brilliant manner――] Celica

Celica stopped talking because she remembered that she is on the princess’s side and not the attackers.

The good fight the Princess’s side was putting on was a blessing for Celica.

[Well then, I think I’ll go play “Hero”.] Celica

If you look at it, the attacker’s side was the bad guys no matter how you put it.
They are ruthlessly killing the escorts of Lunelize.
They are even killing those who are begging for their lives without mercy.
Lunelize young handmaidens are becoming the playthings of the attackers.
I can see a number of low-lives laughing vulgarly while shaking their hips.

[―― I see no reason for me to hold back] Celica

As she spoke these words, Celica began to cast a spell.

[Cold that shuts out the sunlight
Let the atmosphere become a blade
Carve it into the husk,
The melody of death!]

As she finished casting the spell, the two large swords that floated around Celica began to vibrate.
The large swords started to move as if they have a will of their own, and then they flew toward the attackers.
They cut the heads of the attackers who were mercilessly shooting the princess’s escorts.
It seems even a sleazebag’s blood is red.
The swords stabbed the stomachs of the men who were trampling on the dignity of women below.
The bastards were scattered in pieces.

The large swords, which became weapons of mass murder, ran around the battlefield as if they were dancing and killed the attackers one after another.

Looking at the sight in front of him, a man who was standing at the side of the princess wearing a butler’s uniform muttered.

[T,This is a magician ……] Butler

This is not just a normal magician.

A magician of “Supervisor” class who can manipulate a treasure sword, no, “Strategy” class magician who can kill an infantry battalion by himself. Is such an existence saving us now?

The butler looks up at Celica in the sky.
The Princess Lunelize also does the same.
Celica, who is floating in the air, smiles like a witch.
As Lunelize saw that figure, she spoke while grinding her teeth.

[…Gefarner Engel (Fallen Angel)] Lunelize

And that was the encounter of the girl with a past life Celica and the Imperial Princess Lunelize.




CH 6 – “A Demon-like Angel or possibly an Angel-like Demon” – Reincarnated as a Dark Elf ~The strongest magician conquers a parallel world~

And thusly Celica succeeded in infiltrating the noble’s wedding ceremony.

Since she is the stand-in for the customary role of the flower girl, Celica can’t actually join the party.

But, nobles are not cheap. Even though Celica cannot join the party, she is able to help herself to the leftover food and is free to listen to the music that is coming from the assembly hall.

The point is Celica was thrown into a room adjoining the assembly hall. But, no one was watching her.

Since the princess is coming to the party the security was strict, but they did not have enough leeway to watch a 9-year-old girl.

Well, Celica is a cute young girl that is wearing a pink dress.

Even if she gathers attention due to her being cute, the adults are not wary of her.

The fact that such a lovely girl is planning such dastardly deeds is beyond the scope of the adults’ imagination.

Inevitably, she has more freedom to act.

After her mother patted her head and said “Be a good girl and stay here”, Celica began moving around the mansion as if those words disappeared from her memory.

She gathered as much information as she could, like the state of the party or the identity and last names of the attendee’s.

Of course, Celica gathered information on the princess that should be participating today, but there wasn’t a lot to go on pertaining that subject.

The reason being the imperial princess has difficulties dealing with high society and it seems she rarely participates in such functions.

I don’t know if it was because of her having a difficult attitude or not. I think being born into the royal family is troublesome, but I had no other impressions besides this.

But if the princess comes under the control of Celica, such naive thoughts will be purged.

The royal family’s job is to participate in high society and build connections with people.

Abandoning this, living with such carefree freedom is not acceptable of the royal house.
After I thought this, the training of the princess will be put off for a later date.

Now I must find her, feign a “chance” encounter, and get close to her. This is what is crucial at this point.

Celica searched every nook and cranny of the assembly hall and mansion.
But, after several hours passed all that hard work ended in vain.

She could not find the all-important princess.
No matter how much she searched she couldn’t find hide nor hair of the princess.
Could it be that the princess isn’t coming.
The moment she thought this, an announcement rang out through the assembly hall.

[The princess did come to the party but soon felt ill, so she returned to the palace…] Announcer

Celica immediately felt dejected without having to hear the rest of the announcement.

Honestly, for what reason did I dress up in such an embarrassing outfit and sneak into this event.

Isn’t everything I’ve done today nothing more than the foolish antics of a clown. As she whispered this, she became so mad she could spit.
Since the noble’s home is covered in an expensive looking carpet she didn’t do it.

But, she still wanted to vent her stress so she looked for a place where no one is and she could be by herself.

Celica could see a balcony.
There she could complain to her hearts content and spit as much as she wants.
As she thought this and snuck into the balcony she immediately regretted her decision.
The moment she leans forward on the balcony to spit several men entered the area.

Celica could tell these men were nobles or part of the privileged class in this country by the fashionable clothes they were wearing.

The men put a barrier when they entered the balcony to hide them from prying eyes.
It is a magical barrier that stops one’s voice from being heard outside of the area.
And a tough looking bodyguard was standing guard and blocking the entrance to the balcony.
This way they can block curious intruders and foreign spies.

From the pie hole within their well-maintained moustaches they praised their own preparedness.
Honestly what stupid actions.
Even if you block the sound of one’s voice, if you can see the person’s mouth you can derive the contents of the conversation to some extent.
It’s a technique called lip-reading.

(TL Note: Yay, I learned a new Japanese word “読唇術” I will never use in a normal conversation.)

Also, a barrier is effective for those who try and enter from the outside but it’s ineffective for those who are already inside the barrier.

As proof of this the men paid no attention to the table that was already on the balcony, and they didn’t notice the girl wearing a pink dress who was hiding under the white tablecloth of said table.

Celica thought the men were both stupid and hilarious but she didn’t make fun of the men in front of her.

Thanks to them being stupid and hilarious she was able to attain some valuable information.

So, the men spoke about the information Celica wanted to know.

[It seems the imperial princess has retreated from this mansion.]

[Maybe she caught wind of our sinister plans.]

[Now now, Sir Cowell, calling it sinister plans will ruin our reputation. All we did was invite the princess, and waiting for this opportunity we would ask her to resolve herself to the important battle with our neighboring country.]

[But after inviting her, you did plan to have Princess Lunelize killed, correct?] Cowell

[That is not true. I would have her die and become a guardian angel to protect our beloved country.]

[Aren’t you the eloquent speaker. Dear sir if you didn’t have a close relationship with the person responsible for the production of weapons, I would almost believe you.] Cowell

[Dear sir, are you not also a member of the family that has for generations served in the royal knights]

As the laid criticizing remarks on each other, there was no sign of hatred or joking in their speech.

These men with showing any hesitation, or pangs of conscience, planned to kill Princess Lunelize.

From the way they were speaking, it seems a military official is in under the table dealings with a weapons company. But more important than that, at this rate Celica’s one strand of hope, Lunelize, will be killed.

All of Celica’s plans will need to be greatly revised
But, she didn’t want to immediately jump out and punish the evildoers.

Instead of this, Celica was thinking how she could use this to her advantage to start her on her way to a successful life

[…Honestly, this is unforgivable, even for someone like me.] Celica

These are not words regretting that she is selling her soul by engaging in such evil actions.
Celica only regrets that she must rely on such inferior people.

[I am embarrassed that I, for a second, considered joining these fools who plan to kill the girl and then wait for the government to take action. This calls for me to go back to my original plan.] Celica

As Celica thought this she waited for the evildoers to finish their secret meeting and then tailed one of them.

Either one was fine.

In any case, Celica aimed for the first man who left and followed after him.

That man must have drunk quite a lot of beer at the party.
With a bright red face, as if a sign of him needing to pee, the man headed to the bathroom.
With an uncertain gait, the man refused the need for the bodyguard to join him.

[Hey now, I’m not the one that needs protecting, right.] Drunk man

The man laughed.

Now,” the one that needs guarding the most is the princess, huh” is what the man was probably implying while laughing. But his actions will backfire on him.

After several minutes the man was attacked by a demon like little girl.

In the men’s restroom near the assembly hall, the man who was relieving himself was suddenly staggering.

At first the man thought that he was drunk, but then he realized that he was wrong.
He felt a dull pain in his abdomen, and from there something warm was flowing out.
The man remembered this feeling.
He once fought on the battlefield.
It was when he was known as a colonel.

From that experience the man realized that the thing that was flowing from his stomach was actually blood.

[D, Dammit why am I…?] Drunk man

After he blurted these words, his voice wouldn’t come out anymore.

He fell to his side and at the same time some young lady, no a young lady who you would still call a child was sitting on top of the man.

The girl was in her underwear.

[…Why the hell is there a little girl in her underwear here?] Drunk man

As the man spit out that question, the girl answered him.

[What’s happening now is God’s will. Here I have stabbed you in the stomach and have placed a knife at your throat, dear sir. Earlier you were speaking of a plan to kidnap this country’s princess. This is all thanks to the fate of the ones called angel. Give up.] Celica

The young girl in nothing but her underwear continued speaking.

[By the way the reason for me being in my underwear was because I didn’t want to ruin my only good dress. To a noble it may look cheap, but it’s the most expensive article in my
household.] Celica

Also, after I kill you, I don’t want to be labeled a suspect.
Celica kept this to herself. There is nothing to gain letting the man know this.

[Now then, since I have a knife at your neck I’m sure you understand that I decide whether you live or die. You can call for help if you want, or use your body to throw me off. But dear sir let it be known, I will slit your throat open before you can blink an eye.] Celica

[……] Drunk man

The man used his silence to show he understood the position he was in

[Excellent. Dear sir, if you do not wish to die then properly answer my questions.] Celica

The man nodded.
It’s helps when things go easy like this.
Celica asked two things of the man who was silently pleading for his life.
The name of the mastermind of this plan and the location where this country’s princess will be attacked.
The former will be useful to know for the future.
The latter will immediately become useful to know.
But the man easily spilled the beans, and only this worried Celica.
Celica played a certain hand that would make the man more easily tell her his secrets.
Celica gagged the man, tied him up in straw rope, and laid him down faceup. She then paid close attention to his fingers.

[Did you know that when it comes to the sense of pain, the closer one gets to the extremities of the body, the more distinct the feeling of pain becomes. But despite this, since long ago it has been considered an established tactic to start torturing someone from their fingertips.] Celica

The man’s body twitched as he heard these words.

As a military man he understood these words and realized that something had just been stabbed in between his finger and nail.

[Now dear sir, exactly how many fingers will it be before you confess? I can’t wait.] Celica

[A,Aghh!] Drunk Man

The man tried to say something but I couldn’t understand him.

In the end, Celica stabbed six of his fingers with barbecue skewers until she realized something.

[Shoot, I never decided on what the signal will be for when you are ready to talk.] Celica

She woke up the man who had passed out and was foaming at the mouth. She succeeded in attaining the important information from the man.

Incidentally when she asked the man at which finger did he feel like confessing? The man responded in protest…

[I wanted to confess after the first finger!] Drunk man

[I see, so you bravely resisted somewhat, but you didn’t immediately give in like a coward. But with that attitude I sense that our little session is only somewhat complete. Either you should have stayed silent since you were going to die, or started talking before I even started torturing you.] Celica

[…?] Drunk man

The man seems to had some difficulties understanding her words.
Ugh, it seems this man’s sense of imagination seem to somewhat be lacking. Since Celica has no other choice she will explain to him her actions.

[There is no way I can let a noble who could become a witness against me leave here alive. Even if you confessed or didn’t confess, your fate to die here had already been sealed, dear sir.] Celica

As she stated this, Celica swiped her knife sideways.

As the knife easily entered the man’s neck, as if cured beef, bright red meat became visible.

From there an endless amount of blood spilled forth.

The man stared at her as if he had something to say, but Celica only responded.

[At least be reborn in the next life as a good person. If you do that then you won’t have to die in this way again.] Celica

Celica left him with these words. She then washed the blood from her hands in the sink, put her dress back on, and exited the restroom.

On the way back, Celica ran in ta maid she knew, a coworker of her mother, at that moment Celica’s smile didn’t falter.

She continued playing the part of a pure angel.


[Previous] [Next]


CH 5 – “Pink Dress” – Reincarnated as a Dark Elf ~The strongest magician conquers a parallel world~

TL Note: Yay more 1st and 3rd person musically chairs. I am so happy…….

Lunelize Von Grantz.
She is a beautiful princess with golden hair.
She is 9 years old, the same as me.
Her facial features are similar to mine.
The only difference is our races and the color of our hair.
She is a human child, the daughter of the current emperor.
Celica is an elf child, and she is a half-breed dark elf.

Lunelize blond hair and fair white skin seems like the very opposite of Celica’s silver hair and dark skin.

It’s just like the head and tails of a coin.
There is no way for me to not think like that.
(TL Note: Yay double negatives.) 

Two people who would normally never meet and their lives would normally never intertwine.

If these two met, became acquainted, and became friends, it would show how life is truly mysterious

――But then this is Celica’s plan, also this plan has yet to be put into action.

[Still, I will definitely execute my plan. If I can get this Lunelize girl under my command.] Celica

Then Celica would enter into the military elementary school and proceed into the military academy.
If she thinks about it, winning over one little girl should pose no difficulties.
In order for Celica to make good on her own promise, she began to pester her mother.

[Mother, there is supposed to be a wedding at the noble’s house you work at right? Please take me.] Celica

Her mother was bewildered by the sudden pestering of her daughter.

[What’s with you all of a sudden?] Celica’s mother

[I can’t go? I want to see the beautiful bride.] Celica

[Celica wants to see the bride, huh. Hoho. Celica is definitely a girl.] Celica’s mother

That was a response that made Celica want to puke.
Why would anyone want to see a bride?
All Celica wants to see is the imperial princess that will be coming to the wedding ceremony.

Lunelize is well known so Celica heard that she would be participating from her mother.

Celica has no interest in the bride, groom or any of the delicacies form all over that will be served there.

All that she cares about it her own life.
So, she added to her earlier request.

[So, it’s ok right? You know the person who stands in front of the bride and throws petals. I want to do that.] Celica

[Do you mean the flower girl?] Celica’s mother

[Yeah, that.] Celica

Flower girl, what a shitty name. I don’t want to do it, but I need an excuse for me to slip in.

[But that position has already been decided. The daughters of a distinguished noble and a merchant will be the flower girls.] Celica’s mother

[But sometimes people get sick the day of the ceremony, right? Since the princess is coming it would be disrespectful if there aren’t enough flower girls. Won’t there be a need for an emergency stand-in.] Celica

[…You might be right. Maybe I will as the butler Hans-san.] Celica’s mother

But don’t get your hopes up. Is what her mother continued to say.
I won’t’ do that is how she responded to herself.
The fact is Celica’s mother is a maid at a noble’s house and the princess was coming to said house.
This is a once in a lifetime chance.
If she lets this opportunity go by, the chance for poor dark elf girl Celica to meet the princess will never come again.
To let this, go by would be outrageous.
Celica will do all she can.
In a soft voice, Celica pulled on her mother’s arm.

[Please wait before you ask Hans-san.] Celica

[Why?] Celica’s mother

[Now is a very busy time, right? That’s why I think next week Monday is better.] Celica

[You’re right. The weekends are busy.] Celica’s mother

As the ceremony approaches they will become busier.

But if we tell the butler this great plan now, he will definitely ask a daughter of a good house to be the backup flower girl.
If we don’t propose this idea right before the ceremony that all of this will be for nothing.

At that point if they realize they need a flower girl that late that is when the daughter of servant will be chosen.

Actually, Celica was able to hold back her mother from asking right away. And then 3 days before the ceremony when her mother presented this idea to the butler, just as she predicted he chose Celica as the flower girl.

There were other servants who has daughters, but I was chosen since I am known for being beautiful.

I have never once been thankful for being born a girl, but that day only I was thankful for being born a beautiful girl.

But then, that only lasted one day.
The next day. My mother took me out into the town.
My mother then said this.

[Celica, let’s buy you a dress.] Celica’s mother

It was at this time I first realized.

If I am to participate in a wedding, I would have to wear a fluttering dress.

This is a disgrace, and absolute disgrace.

Just as Celica had become accustomed to sitting down when using the restroom, she has not been able to deal with wearing a skirt and a breeze blowing between her legs.
In this parallel world it is weird for girls to wear pants, so she has had no choice but to wear a skirt. But up until now she has yet to wear a dress.

You could say it was her last vestige of pride that she defended, you could also say that the opportunity never presented itself until now.

[Shit, what do I have to wear a dress?] Celica

As she screamed inside of her head, there is no way she is getting out of wearing a dress.
You cannot wear normal clothes at the wedding ceremony of a noble.
Putting on a dress is an absolute condition.

Since there is no other choice Celica resigned myself, she was taken to a second-hand clothes store. For 3 hours her mother made her change clothes like a doll.

[Celica is just as cute as a doll. Since you don’t have any interest in western clothes, the chance to do this rarely comes.] Celica’s mother

Her mother pulled out all the stops.
And Celica stood there as if her soul was ripped out of her.

[Is that right?]
[I think the cheapest one would be fine.]

This is all that Celica said.

In the end, the dress that was picked for her was a one-piece pink dress.

Celica’s brown skin and silver hair shine in this dress, is the reason that were given to her. But when she looked at the price she was startled.

Isn’t it too expensive?
As Celica sent a protesting stare to her mother, she responded happily.

[Since Celica never asks me to buy a toy, or take you on a trip, or anything that a normal child would. This is the only time I can splurge and get you something nice.] Celica’s mother

Honestly, this is why women are just too much.
There is no way Celica would want something like a toy.

What Celica wants isn’t a dress or a toy, but the power and authority to control this country.

Compared to this, satisfaction from physical things leaves something to be desired.
As Celica thought such harsh things, she made her way home with her mother.




CH 4 – “Aiming to be a Solider” – Reincarnated as a Dark Elf ~The strongest magician conquers a parallel world~

(TL Note: Someone mentioned how short the chapters were. I’m not cutting them up the author just tends to write like this.)

As 4 years passed, Celica Desself became old enough to be called a young girl.
She was under 140 centimeters tall but for a girl of her age this was normal. (TL Note: Around 4 ½ feet tall for us Americans.)

But, elves don’t usually grow up to be very tall, so there is a possibility that she won’t grow to be any taller than this.

Even though she is a bit worried about this, height does not equal strength, so she decided to not worry about it.

The strength Celica is aiming for isn’t brute strength, but political strength that can subdue many people and leadership strength. This the kind of strength that she yearns for.

Height has nothing to do with this.
That is why a body larger than this is not necessary.
There is no reason to grow any taller than this.
What she needs now more than anything is a light to brighten her future.
How will she take over this world? That is all that is going through her head.
God told her to take over this world.
She was tasked with becoming the dictator of this world.
And she intends to follow this command.

Ever since being reborn into this world, establishing herself and obtaining her place in this world was a given.

Laws like human rights haven’t taken root yet here as in her previous world.
To guarantee her health and happiness, she needs power.

In order to obtain this, instead of becoming a land baron or a rich merchant by making complicated plans, it’s better to aim for the top of this country, no the world.

If I take over the top, then at least I won’t be attacked from the people there.

There is no reason for Celica to be troubled by inept bosses here in this world as she was in her previous one.

Even though reaching the top is the best environment, it is impossible to achieve this overnight. For such a careful plan a thousand days’ worth of planning is needed.

Consequently, ever since she was born into this world, Celica has thought of only how obtain power.

Living in her previous world was easy.
All you needed to do was get good grades on paper tests, get into a good school, and get into a good company.
And if you do this, no matter how inept you may be, you are promised a good life.

Another way to think of it is if you are capable, a child from a poor home can become a politician, or an entrepreneur.

Depending on your talents, you can deal with it.
But this parallel world is different.
This world’s cultural level is low.
Your station in society is fixated.
The child of a farmer will become a farmer. The child of a bricklayer will become a bricklayer, just the same as a child of a noble will become a noble.
Social classes are fixated and not fluid.
How can you make something of yourself in a world like this?
Celica worried over this since she was young and after coming this far, she has collected her thoughts.

[I have no choice but to become a soldier.] Celica.

This is the only conclusion she could come to.
Being a career officer is the only way for a poor person to succeed in life.

Your station in life is fixated in this world, but only soldiers can break through this.

Of course, even though there are enough idiotic sons of nobles to shake a stick at in the upper echelons of the army. There are also many capable poor people there as well.

This is the kind of world Celica is in. Especially this country who is surrounded by enemies on all sides. If the soldiers were not capable, the country itself would not be able to remain intact.

It’s natural that eventually this country would recognize true strength.

[Well luckily this world has the general notion of magic. And I have this tremendous magic power and my intellect. If I can just get into a military school, then I can somehow make it work.] Celica

This wasn’t an exaggeration or prideful boasting, only the simple truth.

The only problem is how I would get into the military school.

At the military academy if you are skilled you can receive a scholarship, but that hurdle is without a doubt difficult to overcome.

It seems you must enter a military elementary school and attain excellent marks.
The problem is how will I enter such a facility?

Of course, with careful planning and preparation to enter the school at a young age, she stuffed this world’s common sense and education into her head. Even then there was information that Celica was unable to easily attain.

This is due to fact that Celica is a girl.

Military Elementary School has a fixed number of applicants. And entering as a girl is quite difficult.

Even if the army recognizes true strength, that’s only when it comes to men. For women, it’s still very difficult.

In the middle of being impoverished due to war, the army probably finds little merit in raising female soldiers.

If there is time to do that, then it’s better to raise girls to be good wives who will protect the home and have many children is better for the country.

Honestly, what an archaic way of thinking. But it is a logical in a way, so I have to at least acknowledge it.

[Even if I acknowledge it that doesn’t mean I have to agree with it.] Celica

Now after becoming a girl, there has been no greater hurdle than this.
At least let there be an exception for a genius like me.

Even if I grabbed the emperor and prime minister by the back of their necks and demanded change, there is little that can be done.

Celica began to realistically plan how she would enter that school.

This place recognizing true strength and being practical are points that will work in my favor.

What I laid my eyes on was the newspaper that was lying in front of me. Made from high-class paper, it was the St. Elfshizum times.

(TL Note: サン・エルフシズム is the name and I had to make up the spelling for this word. I apologize if it looks dumb.)

There was a cute girl on the front page.
This cute girl is my key to entering the academy.
Celica whispered the name of the child who will become her meal ticket.

[The 27th Emperor Lambert Von Grantz’s 4th princess Lunelize.]

She is the girl who will help Celica get onto to the track to success.

CH 3 – “Admiring Airships” – Reincarnated as a Dark Elf ~The strongest magician conquers a parallel world~

TL Note: Once again the author switches from 3rd person the 1st person like crazy.

My mother had become a widow due to a sudden fire.


As stupid as it may be she loved that man, for a while she became lifeless and some time was necessary to regain our normal lives back.


During this time, Celica played the role of a dutiful daughter.


At the very least, she hid the fact that she was a rebellious daughter who killed her own father.


Celica interacted with her mother with a smile and cheerfully comforted her.


[It’s ok. I’m fine with father being gone. Even with father gone, I will protect mother in his place.] Celica


There was no lie in those words, she had been protecting her mother from the shadows. For as long as she lives, her mother will never realize this.


When the money from the insurance, that her mother was sure had never been set up, came in she didn’t even doubt it for a second.


[This has to be a gift from God. We have to use it carefully.] Celica


With a smile appropriate for her age she said,

[…You’re right. It must be that Celica has been such a good girl that God gave us this money in order to protect you.] Mother


With that, she accepted the unnatural event as an act of God.


Honestly, this woman has no concept of doubting people.


That’s why she was wrapped up with that deadbeat, and gave birth to a devil like daughter.


Since she gave birth to me, karma wise she has to take responsibility until the very end. Until she grows up a bit more, I intend to be raised.


In order to accomplish this, I need my mother to forget that bastard and get back on her feet as soon as possible.


Celica devoted herself to supporting her, and waited for her mother to return to normal.


For her mother to calm down and to forget that deadbeat half a year was needed.


During this time, she quit her job at the factory, and she recovered at home. But now there is no need to worry. She will need to make back the amount of money she has used up until now. Although, she was never fit to work at such a severe workplace like a factory in the first place. I went around with my mother realizing and found her a comparatively easier housekeeper position.



In short, she needs to find a maid job, so I nonchalantly placed a job flyer on the table.


She worried if she would be hired, but I would not give her the time to entertain such thoughts. A good job like this will quickly be filled.


[I’m sure mother can do it. And, I want to see mother in a maid outfit.] Celica


As if giving her backside a good slap, I said this. I made her wear some clothes a noble would like and sent her off to the interview. My mother safely finished the interview and got the job. She was as giddy as a child. Honestly, what a simple girl.


As I thought this, watching the elf girl, no, my mother being happy for some reason my chest began to become itchy and I felt restless.


My mother took to the housekeeping job like a fish to water, and extended her employment there. Her pay quickly rose and was eventually promoted to the head maid position.


My mother, who was a widow, was receiving a good wage and with her daughter was able to live comfortably while affording some luxuries.


Although, with this parallel world’s culture not being that advanced, the luxuries available are limited.


On the weekends, the mother and daughter going to a cafe for a light meal was the most luxury they could afford.


Besides this, The fish and chips the mother and daughter ate was quite delicious.


I, Celica Desself, spent her early childhood years thusly.


Now, I did declare that the culture had not advanced, but allow me to further explain about this world’s culture a bit.


Since I am to live in this world from now on, I must accurately gather information about this place.


Let’s accumulate all the information I’ve gathered since I’ve become an infant. First, this is a fantasy world. It is your standard parallel world. There are humans, elves, and dwarves.


Even though there is magic, this is not a magic and sword world. No, swords still play a big part in this world, but guns have already made their appearance, and the main fighting in the battlefield is starting move from swords to guns


The cultural level of this world, if compared to my previous life, is that of right before World War 1. Tanks have yet to appear, so foot soldiers and cavalry still make up the fighting force. The stars of the battlefield are the magic soldiers, that straddle a large gun barrel and fly about in the sky.


The point is that in this world, just like my previous one, instead of the cultural level progressing the military technology has advanced in a misshapen way.


Honestly, no matter what world it is, humans are the same.


Nothing but shit.


As I thought this, I looked out of the window. There an airship was floating. That is this world’s most advanced technology. By the way, I made a promise with mother to let me ride one next week. I unknowingly was swinging my legs that were dangling from the chair excitedly. This might be proof at how much I was looking forward to it, then I recollected myself.


[Even though I am not a little girl, why am I happy about such a thing.] Celica


In the end, I am only riding an airship to measure the level of culture of this world. As I tell myself this, I can’t seem to calm my restless heart.
