Setting: [Episode 21] Third time Yuuri comes to Shin Makoku. Conrad has just woken him up to go jogging.
With the sleeping face of an angel and the sleeping grace of a demon, both of Wolfram’s arms and legs are entangled around my body, disturbing my slumber. And he’s only wearing a thin and flimsy silky negligee!
“You must be kidding, if Gunter somehow saw this…”
“I am already here -!”
Outside the room, Gunter is shouting loudly and banging against the heavy wooden door. I imagine his beautiful face must already be contorted due to anxiety and stress, and his hair loose and dishevelled.
“Your majesty! What’s wrong? Your majesty! Please open the door! Quickly, open the door—!”
The bodyguard who always stands by my side at all times spoke up next to the half-asleep Wolfram.
“I’ve already locked it, just in case.”
“As expected of Conrad! Thanks a lot!”
I quickly pull on the especially designed sportswear. It’s the sort that can only be seen at variety shows: A green outfit that reaches the floor and has two crass white lines along its side. Although its elasticity isn’t exactly what I wanted, but at least it’s better than using my school uniform.
I open the door and squeeze past Gunter, slipping a quick “I’m going jogging”. Behind me, there was a most girly scream. “How come you are in his majesty’s bedroom--? And in his bed too!!”
I turn my back to the bedroom where I fear a great battle will commence, and asks Conrad an enquiry I cannot understand myself.
“But why is Wolfram living with me? This building’s so incredibly and ridiculously big; surely there are one or two guest rooms at least?”
But more than this, I want to know why he is still staying at
They jog and they return … to chaos.
By now, Gunter is in a state of half-insanity, and is engaged in a fierce battle with the haughty bishounen.
“So why did you wake up in his majesty’s bedroom?!”
“Yuuri proposed to me! Him and I sleeping together is a perfectly natural thing!”
With his hair loose and dishevelled, Gunter argues back.
“You two are still just fiancés no matter what! And cannot be counted as an official couple or as husband and wife! To spend nights in his majesty’s bedroom before marriage, y-you… don’t you have any shame?!”
Wolfram flicks at his dishevelled hair.
“As expected of someone who’s almost a hundred and fifty, your opinions are so last century.”
You can talk, being eighty-two years old yourself! But as to avoid getting involved, I can only curse at him quietly inside. Those who have mazoku blood have far longer life-expectancies than humans; hence their appearances only reflect about a fifth of their actual age. For a barely sixteen years old boy like me, this is like a meeting of the super elderly.
Not wanting to step into battle waters, Conrad squared his shoulder and spoke. “It’s only sharing a bed, surely there’s no need to make such a big fuss…”
“Can someone please remind them?! We’re both men!!”
Nicola rubs at her noticeably bulgy stomach, and chirps in innocently. “Have you two gotten the information wrong? Doesn’t his majesty already have Gwendal-sama?”
“That’s the biggest misunderstanding in history!”
The three people present shout out their denials haphazardly. Only Sir Weller stands quietly by the side, trying his hardest to not laugh. Conrad, this is too sneaky. Your one and only baseball partner in the world is being tricked into marriage… Wait a minute, not tricked into marriage, it should be that I’m being tricked by his gender, right [don’t understand this]? Aie… If only Wolfram was a girl, then everything would be fine… but then he is still bratty as hell…
Then the guard comes in and announces there is a visitor, the Maou's illegitimate child! More chaos ensues...
Setting: After Greta’s failed assassination of Yuuri, he is tended to by Gisela.
She did not bring a first-aid kit, the young girl who is tending to my injury. Her skin is pale and she is wearing a military uniform which does not suit her delicate build. She had barely announced her arrival before she descended from the horse and crouched down, placing my right leg on her knees. As a boy who hasn’t had any luck with girls for nearly sixteen years, the action made my body – with the exception of my injured leg – flush hot all over.
Bless Yuuri. Even as a Yuuram fan, his inexperience with girls is still as adorable as hell.
Then Gunter and Conrad come in and Yuuri finds out Gisela is Gunter’s adopted daughter.
No no no, pushing aside the matter of inheritance [in appearance], Gunter having a child is an undisputed fact. And the greatest offence and evillest of sins is that he hadn’t introduced such a gallant and beautiful girl to me! After all, she is a woman doctor as well as a soldier! Every man has dreamed of such a situation at least once right?!
But don’t ask me what the dream’s about, I cannot answer that.
Yuuri… you perv!
Setting: Yuuri and Conrad are just discussing Greta, and how mazokus make decisions on their 16th birthday. This is just a very brief extract.
However, as soon as someone mentions the 10 years-old Wolfram, I immediately think of angels from religious artworks. I imagine the wings and halo will suit him very well.
Setting: This is so random… it’s like an insert from nowhere. I actually missed it out the first time I read it.
After Greta and Yuuri have left the inn, they have met Isla(spelling?) and are heading towards the noodle stand.
At that moment, Wolfram had a dream.
Yuuri is yelling loudly, “I definitely oppose “ai-qiu*” without love!” Although Wolfram replies back, “If you want love, I have it here!” inside he’s wondering what the hell “ai-qiu” is.
As always, the ‘gu-luu-gu-luu-luu’ sounds as he snores.
Hope you have a good dream.
Notes: No kidding. This is what it said. And then it reverts back to Yuuri and Greta… -confused-
* Ai Qiu: I had to search this up… Basically it just means sex. It’s meant to be an imitation of the sound people make when they’re exercising. Apparently it came from people rowing boats and the sounds they made then, which then somehow got carried over to sex sounds – LOL! Just remembered Yuuri and his rowing breathing techniques XD
Setting: After spending the whole night searching, Conrad and Wolfram finally found Yuuri again. Wolf has just finished
abusing scolding Yuuri. Yuuri then complains that it was unfair that Conrad could go out to find girls. This has to be one of my favourite scenes now!
Conrad: “I didn’t go out to seek female company! A friend just needed to give something to me. At that time, that child [Greta] was not only asleep, there was also strange breathing sounds from the next room. I thought that staying in the room and listening to you two making love wasn't really appropriate, and so…”
“We were not making love!”
That was me doing sit-ups! We’re not lovers from fifty years ago, how could we take a trip to the hot springs to be a honeymoon!! And back to the subject, please get some perspective Conrad! We’re both men for heaven’s sake!!
Setting: After Maou mode, when he put out the fire with water dragons (a dignified form of magic for once, says Wolfram). He is waking up.
Yuuri dreams of some weird thing which I don’t understand. It’s too Japanese culture-y -_-
“Wuu… Wuu… 板东英二… 野野村真……” [Just some names]
“That dream again?”
I can feel the light; even inside my eyelids it’s all white. I peel open my eyes painfully, and see bright shimmering golden hair directly above me, as well as a pair of fluttering eyes that are as green as the deepest lake. If he was a girl, I can probably tolerate his egotism and go out with him.
“Speaking of which… Wah!! Why am I lying on your lap again?!”
My body rolled three times on the grass, leaving Wolfram’s legs….
Setting: I think this part’s missed out of the anime. After adopting Greta and just before returning to Shin Makoku, they meet Hristo Cruyff – a.k.a. Baldy – who takes Greta away for a while, to study with Beatrice (after much argument -_-).
When Greta left, I cried and wailed loudly even though everyone was watching. But no one laughed at me… In the end, I arranged with Hristo Cruyff-san to let her stay for one month and then visit Shin Makoku once. Come to think of it, that child has appeared in front of me barely ten days ago, but I guess when it comes to family bonds time is irrelevant and so I disregard it. Surprisingly, Wolframs was by my side, crying and howling just as miserably as me.
Setting: … pretty much given in the translation.
After returning to
Wolfram von Bielefeld, why can’t you just like the relationship between us to be friendship?
Tonight, I’ve experience two bouts of sleep paralysis [when you wake up but can’t move your muscles], and once I’m awake I cannot sleep again.
“Aie… can’t sleep. Need to take bath or I can’t sleep... Wolf, I want to go to the big bath to bathe.”
“What are you yabbering about? What time is it now? Even if you want to disturb other people’s dreams, there should be a limit as to how much…”
“It doesn’t matter if you want to come or not! But your face looks totally like 田中邦卫 [an old Japanese actor] right now!”
Sleeping on my bed without permission, and still acting so rude, he’s got no manners at all.
No other choice, I walk out of the room by myself and stealthily creep along the corridor….
The he got sucked into the bath and wakes up with Murata slapping his face.
I'm wiped out.
