Chapter 2 : Reincarnation 2

Chapter 2 : Reincarnation 2

“Please make my abilities average!”

“Huh….”

At Misato’s words, the young man claiming to be God has an agape look.

“No, the world that you’re going to be reincarnated into is far behind your own world you know? 

The security is bad, thieves are also running rampant on the world with swords and magic, there are magical monster too. If you do not have an outstanding ability, the safety of your life…”

Even though the God is anxious, Misato’s decision did not change.

“No, it does not matter. My abilities and appearance, and everything else I’m born with, please make it the average of that world’s . Reincarnation means that I’m born as human of that world isn’t it. 

Because of that, if I have the average abilities of that world, this time, I can be happy with my own power…

And also, even with only modern knowledge, it is enough advantage you know”

At Misato’s unchanging will, God nod.

“I understand. Additionally, at that world, a large scale interference and experiment case are performed, as the result magic can be used at that world you know. As you grow, a certain concentration of nanomachines will be sprayed automatically on you, which cause various phenomena to happen accordingly to a creature’s Vicious Mind1 wave. 

Chemical change, physical change, various others , well, other unbelievable magical and unthinkable things for you. Actually, that world has greeted civilization collapse several times, because of the lost of all technology human barely survive, as the result of them messing around with large scale experiment that doubles as remedies, nanomachines in the form of magic beetle has become universal and some degree of civilization reconstruction is played out, unfortunately progress has stagnated. 

The reason for that fiasco is that nobody has been looking out for that world. We do feel some responsibility, the resident of that world live as they please, it’s not a bad world. But, the civilization endlessly continue without advancing, bad security, huge danger, people die easily so to say… ”

Wait that is [not so bad] world?

Misato thought, well, it would be men who go out of town frequently for work, I don’t think there would be so much danger for a woman who does not go out of town, Misato convinced herself.

Since I’m not transported from the original world2, because I’m reborn again as a child of the other world, there is no need to hear the details about that world right now. Normally, she would learn it slowly as a child. She thinks so, Misato is not willing to listen too much about this and that. Therefore, after listening at the minimum explanation by God, Misato did not question it, especially about herself.

“Then, I will begin the reincarnation process. A married couple that is not supposed to be bestowed with a child, the soul of the child who is supposed to be born naturally, well do not worry about that. A fertilized egg has been prepared for you.

Thus, I wish a happy life for you, I’m praying to myself, who is not really a God3, it is a bit strange isn’t it.

I’m truly grateful to you. In my appreciation to you, the day where people of the earth will climb into a higher order of existence will come.

May you have a good life…”


And now, Misato is Viscount Ascham’s house only child, Adele von Ascham, 10 years old… or supposed to be.

However, it is funny.

The memories return at 10 years old, it is not like it is bad. Although it feels a bit slow, it is a large burden to an infant’s brain and body to receive the spirit of a 18-years-old, please pardon the infant who wants to play, because remembering words are cumbersome, a small growth caused by memory returning is a huge help.

But, as I try to ruminate the integrated “Adele’s memory”…

Two years ago.

On the day of a party on neighboring manor which my parents are supposed to attend, father suddenly has a bad physical condition. Hastily grandfather becomes the one to attend instead, at the way back, grandfather and mother are attacked by bandits and die.

Usually the security is good, few years have passed without bandits appearing, it can be said that there is absolutely no damage, why is it bandits appear just that one time.

The day after the funeral, a woman come to the viscount house, that woman brought a girl in the same age as Adele.

And then, on the party which father and that woman attend, as I was introduced as daughter, the woman brought out a prissy girl.

Adele was left to the viscount house.

The majority of the servant are replaced, the only one remains from old days, is the cook.

“… I wonder what to think about that kind of thing”

Ironically, in the previous life, parents and sisters are the heart’s only cornerstone, it seems like in this world those 3 people are enemy.

Rather than stepchild… that prissy4 is probably father’s illegitimate child… The people who didn’t like Adele is ignoring her, everyday Adele is made fool of and bullied.

But, 3 days after that.

To get rid of the riddance, the Viscount and mother-in-law decided into a boarding school on the Imperial City.

It was a big welcome for Misato, no, for Adele.

And 3 days later.

Without being seen off by the family, Adele rides the stagecoach towards the Imperial City.

As a matter of course, Adele is not allowed to use the Viscount House’s horse drawn carriage.

There is little luggage, just a small number of clothes, bathing kits and personal belonging only.

The destination is Ekland School on Imperial City.

Poor lower noble’s 3rd son or less, and a small part of it, a very talented commoner who receive scholarship.

The Imperial City have another school that is attended by the children of royalty, nobility, high merchant’s son and heir. Actually sister-in-law… and maybe because she is father’s child… prissy is supposed to attend there next week and parents seems to head together with prissy to the Imperial City. Of course, in a luxurious carriage of the Viscount house. And then in school, she'll go from a mansion in the Imperial City.

Because there is nothing else to do, on the spare horse-drawn carriage, Adele spend her time thinking.


As I thought, it is a way to get rid of me, what should I do. The previous wife's child is not needed, I wonder if the second wife’s child is taken in as daughter-in-law. As I am, my age would make it clear that prissy is an illegitimate daughter, and because if she is called a step-child, she can’t be the heir because a daughter-in-law did not have the Viscount House’s blood. Because of that, I’m forced to be the heir. Therefore, if I did not exist, prissy will be fit to have that position.  

Either killing me or declaring that I’m dead will be good. Maybe as a spare, or to be married off in a marriage of convenience, it seems to be more advantageous to keep me alive.  

In fact, at the time of admission, the parents announced to Adele [you are prohibited from claiming Ascham’s family name]. Apparently, prissy will be the eldest daughter and nobody should know about Adele. Adele is [might be useful, so let’s put her aside for the time being], thinking about that, at least it is better than death.  

Adele will learn a lot about that world in the span of 3 years in that school and after that is graduation and the dazzling future. Back at the Viscount territory, whether bullying or keeping her alive with bare necessity5, or sold to a middle-aged married man. Human trafficking in the name of [marriage of convenience].

Somehow, earn money and find a way to run.

That is Adele’s goal for school life.

But, I wonder why I’m born in the house of nobility. I ask for average abilities, position, and everything else… aaaa!

Adele responds when she found the answer after thinking about it for a long time.

Royal Family, Duke, Marquis, Earl, Viscount.
Slave, Commoner, Retainer, Baron, Viscount.
Fifth from the top. Fifth from the bottom. Yep, certainly in the middle…….
It’s wrong! What about the number(of people) distribution, the number distribution!
And besides, it is far from the average value, it is not even a [median]. Median is the center from all of the components, it is not by anyway the center of categories.
If it is not, at least leave it at “mode”…

Logically, mean, median, mode6 should be “commoner”. Moreover, how did such way of thinking come to be.

Because she is tired of thinking, she starts to make a doll by cutting a piece of wood picked up on the second day. She gets the talent and hand dexterity from the previous life.

Daughter of aristocracy always carry a small knife.

One day, if you are attacked by bandits or man and commit suicide before you are defiled.

No, rather than used to commit suicide, this should be used on the opponent, when I think about it, this knife shouldn’t be used to cut a piece of wood. Though, this wood is easily cut just like butter, I wonder if it is due to the quality of the knife, or a weird type of wood…

And then the gradually finished wooden doll, rather than a rustic wooden doll, it can be called a [figure], it is a novelty for this world.

Seeing a little girl cutting a piece of wood with a knife, supa supa7, the other carriage passengers’ mind is clouded… with worry that she’ll cut off her finger.




1 Vicious Mind (given by Google Translate-sama) is written as 思念 (shinen) which when I ask Google-sama, Google-sama leads me to a Wikipedia page about 残留思念 (zanryou shinen) which basically is those lingering strong thought of the dead… you know those ghost stories which a dead person’s will causes the place where they die to become cursed… and stuff… *cough* basically Vicious Mind == strong thought/will (maybe...).

2 Something like Desumachi/Konjiki no wordmaster/Tsuki ga Michibiku/Overlord where the MC is immediately transported into the other world as they are

Last chapter he said that he someone who can be said to occupy the status that human labeled as God, but reality it is different

Adele is calling/nick-naming her sister-in-law “prissy”

飼い殺し(kaigoroshi) according to commenter(thx!) is keeping a pet alive till it dies

6 If anyone is interested to know what mean, median, mode is, klik here (disclaimer : not mine)

Wood cutting sound effect

  1. About "Sazukare" word. "Sazukaru" is a 1st form a.k.a. Infinitive of that word and it means "to obtain/gain/achieve"

    ReplyDelete
  2. And "ki ga hiketa" is either "to be ahsamed" or "not at ease"

    ReplyDelete
  3. Finally, "kaigoroshi" is a word meaning "to mantain (or considering that it is a person - "contain"?) till the death"

    P.S. English is not my main language, so some meanings can be lost)

  4. Why does the father hate his own daughter? Were mother and grandfather maybe not killed by bandits?

    1. From Adele's speculation, it might be like this :

      Father is cheating -> Father has a illegitimate child -> Father kill Mother and Grandfather so that he can marry his cheating partner

      As for why he didn't love his real wife&daughter... idk the WN never explain that :/

    2. " As I am, my age would make it clear that prissy is an illegitimate daughter, and because if she is called a step-child, she can’t be the heir because a daughter-in-law did not have the Viscount House’s blood. Because of that, I’m forced to be the heir. Therefore, if I did not exist, prissy will be fit to have that position."

      I think her father just married into their viscount family. Thats why her step-sister is not really connected to the viscount house by blood.

      Her grandfather might have been the current family head and also the father of her mother. Her father wanted to become the head of the family and to marry his mistress. So they arranged the assassination of his wife and father-in-law.
      That way he become the next viscount and could be together with his lover.

      Well this is just my theory but everything so far seems to indicate this.

  5. 気が引けた is more of unacceptable then acceptable i think? .-.
    The meaning is something like something that makes you want to pullback/back off. so it would be something like "at least it was better than the alternative of death." (I think)
    飼い殺し according to rikaikun is "keeping a pet til it dies"

  6. I really love this~! Whew~! I can't believe that this will be unattended! It's heresy! or something like that, lol.

    Anyway, this is really great~!

  7. 授かれ literally means to be awarded/blessed, there are also similar meaning like to be gifted, etc.


    While 飼い殺し means keeping a pet till it dies, it can also be used to describe keeping a useless person. Probably means that her family will keep her alive but won't do anymore than that. Bad people :/

  8. thanks!
    hm, she remembers her memories only now, after her situation has changed. ell, it's useful that way, since she'll understand her situation much better.

  9. Change 'mother-in-law' with 'stepmother'!
    It is hard to understand when you use mother in law. It made me thought the kid had already marry!

  11. Father is an asshole. I hope Adele get back at her rotten family.
    "I don’t think there would be so much danger for a woman who does not go out of town, Misato convinced herself."
    How about the bandits? Shouldn't you get a special ability to at least defend yourself?
