The Deeds of Arrogant Noble Volume 1 chapter 4 part 6

She knew. This was surely the devil’s whispers she mustn’t lend an ear to.
 
Maybe she was just being deceived.
 
She understood Luke’s words and actions didn’t come from good intentions. ──However,
 
“….I just can’t resist anymore.”
 
She couldn’t resist. She just couldn’t resist no matter what.
 
It was like how something once dyed black would remain black no matter how many other colors you added to it.
 
There was no longer any covering her heart.
 
Mia swiftly finished getting ready.
 
It didn’t mean it was sloppy. Each action was efficient without … Read the rest

The Deeds of Arrogant Noble Volume 1 Afterword + Extra

Afterword
 

 
Nice to meet you, I’m the author Kuroyuki Yukina.
 
Thank you very much for picking up this book.
 
First, I’d like to briefly discuss this work. In short, it’s what you’d call a villain reincarnation story. The protagonist suddenly reincarnates as Luke, a monster-like talented villain noble, and various things happen as he tries to avoid ruin.
 
However, just that much isn’t really new. Reincarnating as a villain who was supposed to be destroyed and scrambling to prevent that. I’m sure those who have picked up this book have read works with similar content … Read the rest

It’s been a few days since I witnessed Yorand’s reprehensible true nature, Alice’s brother.
 
But even now, the events of that day are burned clearly in my mind.
 
I’ll probably never forget it. No, considering I’m engaged to Alice, there’s no probably about it.
 
Just thinking he might become my brother-in-law makes me shudder.
 
For him to give me, of all people, a sense of fear, he’s quite something. And I never imagined there’d be a day I feel sympathy for Alice. She really is pitiable.
 
If she didn’t have that creepy … Read the rest

“Y-you came all this way just to say that?”
 
“No? I’m borrowing some mana.”
 
Suddenly, the sensation of having her mana stolen.
 
With so many things happening one after another, Mia felt dizzy.
 
“Wha-what are you─”
 
“Hmm, it really is a good attribute.”
 
The moment Mia saw the small [Chain] spinning at high speed on Luke’s palm, she was at a loss for words.
 
“It goes without saying for [Healing], [Lightning] and [Chains] are also excellent. I see, [Lightning] can also be used to enhance physical abilities. Since its fundamentals differ from fortification … Read the rest

Leaving the academy, evening dusk had begun to spread.
 
Feeling the slightly chilly wind, I started walking towards the dormitory.
 
Despite some fatigue, what filled my heart was an unfathomable feeling of happiness.
 
The battle with Yorand was fun. It was really fun.
 
When was the last time I felt so exhilarated? Honestly, it was many times more fulfilling than the fight with Abel.
 
Because of that, my footsteps felt light despite the expected heaviness from fatigue.
 
“Luke.”
 
At that time, I heard a voice.
 
“─Yorand?”
 
“Can we talk for a … Read the rest

[It’s just not right… We didn’t commit any crime, yet just because we look a little different, we’re treated as slaves…]
 

 
It started from something truly trivial.
 
This morning, on a mere whim, I asked Abel [What do you want to do if you become a Magic Knight?]. Abel said [I want to build a small village].
 
Not everyone is strong. So at least, he wants to protect the people within his reach.
 
And he also said this.
 

 
── [I want … Read the rest

Darkness wraps around the sword in my right hand.

Darkness takes the shape of armor, covering my whole body.

Tremendous energy courses through my whole body.
 

 
“Shall we?”
 
“Bring it.”
 

 
With a grin that seems to split my face, I kick off the ground.
 


 
Yorand truly believes from his heart that his little sister Alice is the most beautiful girl in the world.

Professor Freya announces the end of the match.
 
The moment she does, the gigantic [sun] Luke created disappears like an illusion.
 
That unique sensation of magic power being drained from inside my body also vanished.
 
Along with the endless feeling of powerlessness from having my magic power taken away, and Luke’s gaze looking down on my sorry state──ah, it’s unbearable.
 
My body tingles and my lower abdomen grows hot.
 
It’s really too bad that’s not directed at me right now.
 
“Luke really is unbelievable…”
 
“Haa…haa…”
 
“A-are you okay, Alice? Your face … Read the rest

I head to the cafeteria. Luckily it was close so I got there quickly.
 
There were already people there before me. It was the guy with the really nasty eyes and red hair I saw in the classroom yesterday.
 
Without a word, he just silently kept eating his meal.
 
“He looks nasty. An unpleasant sight first thing in the morning. Why don’t you disappear?”
 
“Huh?”
 
I didn’t really care.
 
Frankly, I don’t give a damn what some nobody does.
 
Plus, this guy is just silently eating his meal.
 
There’s no need to … Read the rest

What Alfred handed me was a shortsword in its scabbard. No gaudy decorations, but the feel and weight make it clear this is a finely crafted blade.
 
I drew it. It’s real.
 
“A graduation present from me, and proof that you have fully learned. Please accept it.”
 
“Heh, I’ll take it.”
 
I stowed the shortsword in my lapel.
 
Alfred, thank you so much. I was able to make it here thanks to you.
 
“Well then, please give my regards to your father and mother.”
 
“I will. See you, Alfred.”
 
“Yes. Good luck, … Read the rest
