Mer’s Illusion
: Who do you plan on choosing as your date, Charming?

[The others note with slight amusement at the faint coloring of Charming’s cheeks at the question.]

: Well, I suppose maybe Night.

Prince Snow
: The dangerous, rebellious type? Hm. I’m not surprised.

[Princess Charming pointedly ignores Prince Snow’s comment and teasing grin.]

Princess Charming
: Is everyone fine with this arrangement? If so, I will go ahead and inform the hosts of our choices.

Prince Zel
: W-wait. Have you planned the date yet? Where do you plan on taking him?

Princess Charming
: I have some ideas. You’ll find out soon enough.

[Smiling secretively, Princess Charming walks away from the group. For a brief moment, her footsteps falter when she remembers Ambrosia’s warning, but she shrugs it off and puts on her best smile as she approaches the hosts.

She curtsies, her gaze sweeping over the hosts before settling on Night. She smooths a crease in her dress almost nervously — a surprisingly timid gesture from this usually overly confident princess who charges head on into everything.]

Princess Charming
: My greetings. I hope we haven’t kept you waiting for too long. We have made our decision. I will be taking part in this challenge on behalf of my team, and…

[Princess Charming pauses before continuing, an inviting smile tugging at her lips.]

Princess Charming
: Would you like to go on a date with me, Night?

[There’s a twinkle in Night’s eye again and a broader smile on his lips, almost victorious.]

Night:
I thought you’d never ask.

[Princess Charming visibly relaxes, and she beams back at him with a hint of flirtatiousness.]

Princess Charming
: Were you waiting for me to?

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Just for you to make up your mind.

[She laughs, then winks at him playfully.]

Happy Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Was there ever any doubt that if I were the one taking part in this challenge, I’d choose you as my date?

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Who knows?  You might like playing hard to get.

Winking Princess Charming from free English visual novel, Lads in Distress.
Princess Charming
: Hmm? Do I look like I’d be that type? In that case, come and get me then.

[With another wink, Princess Charming turns and walks towards the room.

Her hand rests on the door knob, hesitating for a brief moment before she pushes it open and enters the room.

The chamber is mildly lit as if by some internal light.  You might even think it’s the walls themselves that are glowing, like they’re made from some illuminative crystal.  In the corner of the room, a sleek silver panel sits in the shadows.

She blinks at the unfamiliar environment, then shrugs.]

Princess Charming of Lads in Distress, free English visual novel and otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Let’s see… How does this work? They did call it room of illusions, so I assume it will work the same way as illusion magic in our world. Let me just imagine something to test it…

[Her eyes flutter shut as she concentrates on the magic deep within her and the image painted in her mind. When she opens her eyes, the room is transformed into her bedchamber in her castle, causing her to smile in satisfaction. However, she can feel her energy draining as she tries to keep up an illusion of this magnitude.]

Sad Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game.
Princess Charming
: Ugh. I must have used more magic than I thought when I was making those food… Or maybe it’s something about this world. My magic energy gets drained so much faster somehow. How am I going to keep this up for the entire date?

[Striding into the room, Night takes one look around the foreign walls, his expression seemingly clear of any surprise, and then smiles at her.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
What are you doing?

[Startled, Princess Charming’s concentration wavers, and the illusion drops, returning the room to its original state.]

Sad Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game.
Princess Charming
: Setting up for our date, of course.

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Come here.

[Nodding his head towards the panel nested in the corner, he begins to walk towards it with long steps. Staring after him curiously, she follows after a brief moment of hesitation.]

Princess Charming of Lads in Distress, free English visual novel and otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: What is it?

[He holds out his hand to her with his palm faced outward.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Give me your hand.  I’ll show you how to use the room.

Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Holding my hand already before our courting has already begun? How bold.

[Princess Charming smiles to show that she is simply teasing and places her hand on Night’s palm.

Folding his fingers over hers, he draws her closer, guiding her in front of the panel.  He moves to stand behind her and, with his chest nearly touching her back, eases her hand onto the cold silver.  When he leans down and speaks in a lowered voice, she just might feel his breath warm her ear.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Now, think about where you want to take me.

[Her cheeks unwillingly heating up, she tries to ignore his proximity and peers down curiously at the object in front of her. There’s a look of doubt on her face, but nevertheless, she closes her eyes and does as she was told.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Take a look, Princess.

[She peeks through her lashes at the room and notes the transformed surroundings with surprise. Looking around with wide eyes, she barely notices Night removing his hand from hers as she studies the room with unrestrained curiosity.]

Princess Charming of Lads in Distress, free English visual novel and otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: How did it do that? I didn’t use any magic. Is this… object magical? This is most interesting indeed. I wonder if I’d be allowed to take one of these things home with me?

[Night lets out a low chuckle.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
I wouldn’t mind, but Alexandrite probably wouldn’t like that.  You can ask, though.

[He glances at the console, taking a moment to consider it.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
I think it was one of our kinsmen who made it capable of doing all this.  But we don’t call our abilities ‘magic’ where we come from.

Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Hm. I suppose there’s no harm in asking. Nicholl would pass out from excitement at this strange object that can create illusions just like we can with our magic.

[She eyes the room again with blatant curiosity before smiling at Night.]

Happy Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming:
My apologies. I got distracted by this new discovery. Shall we get our date underway?

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Whenever you’re ready.

Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Well, I’m as ready as I’ll ever be. Here goes nothing.

[Pressing her hand on the panel again, she closes her eyes and imagines. When she can feel a gentle breeze touching her hair, she smiles in satisfaction and wonder.]

Happy Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Ah, this is even more realistic than I thought it would be.

[She turns to observe the room. They are now standing on a grassy hilltop, an endless blue sky stretching before them.]

Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Not bad. Almost exactly as I imagined it.  Well then, Night, are you ready for the time of your life?

[Without waiting for an answer, she whistles loudly. Almost immediately, there comes a loud flapping of wings and a giant gust of wind that threatens to sweep them off their feet. Princess Charming can hardly restrain her excitement as she waits, practically bouncing in place.

Night turns his head in the direction of that ominous sound and, at the sight of a silvery blue dragon, folds his arms across his chest.  You might say he looks impressed.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Well, this is unexpected.  Something tells me you’re just getting started.

Winking Princess Charming from free English visual novel, Lads in Distress.
Princess Charming
: Of course. You’re in for more surprises.

[The dragon lands in front of them, shaking the ground. Princess Charming has to grab Night’s shoulder to steady herself for a moment.

The dragon’s head bows as it crouches low, waiting.]

Happy Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Come on!

[Grabbing Night’s hand, she pulls him towards the dragon.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
You’re the boss.

[He lets her take the lead, amusement clear on his face.]

Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Climb on.

[Placing her hands on the dragon’s back, she once again marvels at the quality of this illusion as she can almost feel the dragon’s scales scratching against her palms. She heaves herself onto the dragon’s back, shifting into a more comfortable position.

He follows suit, pressing one hand against the side of the dragon and lifting himself into the spot behind her with ease.  He slides his arms around her waist, as one would have done on horseback.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
So, where to?

Happy Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: You’ll see! Don’t worry about it for now. Just enjoy the ride!

[Almost on cue, as soon as the dragon hears the word “ride”, it flaps its great wings once and rises into the air. Taken by surprise, Princess Charming gives a loud squeal and grabs at the dragon scales as she almost slides off the dragon’s back. Thankfully, with Night holding her from behind, she manages to regain her balance quickly and bursts out laughing.]

Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Wow. Riding a dragon is harder than I thought. I’m really glad this is an illusion, so I can’t fall to my death at least.

[At the dragon’s sudden flight, one might have noticed that Night’s arm had tightened around her waist and his smile had grown, which was more than evident in his voice.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Yes.  But without a little danger, it may not be as fun.

Happy Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: A daredevil, huh? I’m glad I picked the one with a sense of adventure.

[A mischievous smile crosses Princess Charming’s face as her eyes light up in excitement.]

Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: In fact, I just got the most wonderful idea of what we should do next. But I suppose I am getting ahead of myself. I promised a dragon ride, and this is what we shall enjoy for now.

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
As you wish.  But let’s take it up a step.

[He unfolds his arms from her waist to settle her hands over hers.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Do you trust me?

[Princess Charming pauses, as though thinking the question over seriously.]

Princess Charming of Lads in Distress, free English visual novel and otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Yes. Surprisingly, I  already do.

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Good.

[He begins to ease her fingers off the dragon’s scales, lifting them up and outwards until her arms were spread out.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Then, let yourself go.

[There’s a brief moment where Princess Charming closes her eyes with a look of slight panic, wobbling on the back of the moving dragon. Almost unthinkingly, she leans back further against Night, using his steady presence to balance herself. Feeling strangely comforted, she finally does as she was told and opens her eyes. An exhilarated laugh escapes her, as she gives herself up to the enticing excitement, the adrenaline pumping through her veins.]

Happy Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: This is amazing!

[Chuckling, Night trails his fingers down the length of her left arm before bracing her waist in his steadying embrace once more.  He lowers his head beside her ear, and when he speaks, his breaths graze her skin ever so softly.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Try telling the dragon to move faster.

Princess Charming of Lads in Distress, free English visual novel and otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Do I just… say it out loud? Or do I imagine it like I did earlier?

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Say it.

[Feeling slightly foolish, she clears her throat and speaks to the air.]

Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Dragon, fly as fast as you can.

[Immediately, the flapping of the dragon’s wings starts increasing in speed. The wind blowing around them becomes stronger until Princess Charming is forced to close her eyes, ducking her head slightly.]

Sad Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game.
Princess Charming
: Uhhh. I have a bad feeling about this.

[The dragon’s wings start flapping furiously until she swears it’s nothing but a blur, and they shoot forward at a breakneck speed. Princess Charming squeals loudly as her hands instantly fly to the dragon’s back, clutching at the scales for dear life.

Despite having to shut his eyes against the gust, Night holds his head up high, seeming to relish the blast of wind whipping past them, and he gives a small laugh.]

Princess Charming of Lads in Distress, free English visual novel and otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: I know it’s impossible to die in an illusion, but… dragon! Stop! I didn’t mean this fa–

[As soon as she utters the word “stop”, the dragon’s wings cease their frantic flapping. The dragon comes to a sudden halt, hanging in midair motionlessly.

Princess Charming’s sentence ends in a scream as the passengers are thrown right off the dragon’s back from the abrupt stop. Loud unladylike curses which would undoubtedly earn her a lecture back at home escape her mouth as she falls.  They make Night smile at her in the air.]

Princess Charming of Lads in Distress, free English visual novel and otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Dragon! Catc–

[Her order is interrupted by a splash as she finds herself submerged in water, having landed in the middle of the ocean. Kicking her feet, her head breaks the surface, and she gasps for breath.

Not a few seconds later, Night follows suit, coming up a few feet away from her, but as soon as he draws in enough air, he throws out another soft laugh.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Just as planned?

[Charming blinks at him before throwing her head back in laughter.]

Happy Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Would that save the date if I say yes?

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
If you ask me, the best things happen when you least expect them.

[He looks around at the miles of ocean surrounding them.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Normally, I would suggest that we explore under the sea, but I’m not supposed to be the one calling the shots here.  Our next move, Your Highness?

Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Well, I do like the idea of exploring under the sea. I did originally have a plan for our date, but the plans have been botched anyway by my unskilled commanding of the dragon. Why don’t we just go with the flow and see where things lead us?

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
In that case…

[He holds out a hand to her, his palm faced outwards.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Shall we?

[She smiles and places her hand in his.]

Happy Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Let’s go.

[Curling his fingers over hers, he slips beneath the water with her.  The water continuously increases in shades of darkness as they dive down deeper. Bubbles trail after them as they swim, attracting the attention of various small, colorful fish.

After a minute or two, Charming finds herself running out of breath.  Glancing back at her, Night inclines his head towards the surface.

Shaking her head, Charming smiles with confidence. Her eyes fluttering shut, she holds out her hand. For a moment, nothing seems to happen, but then the water around them seems to barely shimmer. Charming breathes in gingerly, testing the results of her magic. Her grin widens as she holds up a thumbs up to Night.

He inhales and, feeling no water rush into his lungs, gives a small chuckle.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
You’re equipped for every situation, it seems.

Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Of course. What kind of princess would I be otherwise?

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Well then…

[He moves to settle his other hand on the small of her back.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
May I have this dance, Princess?

[A smile tugs at the corner of her lips as she peers up at him coyly.]

Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Underwater dancing? My, this is a first. I would be very honored.

[She moves her hand to his shoulder and shifts a little closer to him.  He begins to whirl her through the water, leading her in a dance much like the waltz.  Amidst the periodic swirl of glistening bubbles, Night’s gaze remains locked on hers.

She seems to be enjoying herself greatly as she twirls with vigor, her eyes dancing in delight and a bright smile stretching from ear to ear.]

Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming:
You know, I’ve grown tired of dancing because of the countless exhaustingly boring dancing lessons and balls I’ve been to, but this dance has certainly reignited my interest.

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Has it?  Then, what do you say we make it more interesting?

[He bends his head towards her and lowers his voice a notch, taking on a tone of intimacy.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Tell me something.  Have you ever been kissed underwater before?

[An expression of shock crosses her face before she composes herself. Her cheeks color slightly as she tilts her head up at him and winks, a flirtatious smile tugging at her lips and a humorous glint in her eyes.]

Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Unfortunately, I can’t say I’ve had the experience. Most suitors seem to be too terrified of me — or rather what I can do to them with my magic — to steal kisses from me on dry land where they can run away, let alone underwater.

[He chuckles.]

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
That would imply they were unwanted.

Princess Charming from Lads in Distress, free English otome game for NaNoRenO 2016.
Princess Charming
: Are you implying yours wouldn’t be unwanted?

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Are you trying to say they would be?

[She purses her lips with a solemn expression as though deep in thought about his question, but the teasing twinkle in her eyes give her away.]

Winking Princess Charming from free English visual novel, Lads in Distress.
Princess Charming
: Why don’t you come and find out?

[Shooting him a smirk, she twirls out of his grasp elegantly before turning back to peek at his face to gauge his reaction.  At that precise moment, he lunges forward, lacing an arm around her waist and cupping her chin to bring her lips to his.

Taken aback, she lets out a gasp against his lips. His mouth is firm on hers, yet softer than she expected. Her hands seem to have found their way into his hair of their own accord, and before Charming even knows what she’s doing, she’s pulling him closer, melting into the kiss.]

[When Night returns to the other hosts, Wildfire lets out a low whistle.]

Wildfire:
Way to score at the end of the date.

Night:
You make things sound so dirty.

Wildfire:
What’d I say?  Maybe you just have a filthy mind.

Arsenik of the Hulder from War (X Playing Pieces), Dreamgazer's free English otome game.
Arsenik:
You’re both making it difficult to ask for his rating now.

Wildfire:
Why?  It’s not like he really scored.  The loser.

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
First, you give me a pat on the back, and then, you put me down for it.  Make up your mind, Wildfire.

Ambrosia:
If you’re hoping he will rate her with respect, Sir Arsenik, I don’t believe that’s possible for him.

Night:
Ouch.  You always think so badly of me, Ambrosia.

Wildfire:
So, did you have a good time or what?

Night of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), OELVN and free English otome game.
Night:
Hmm…it was certainly different.  I’ll give it 3 and a 1/2 stars.  As for my interest in her, 4 stars.  I would like to see her again.  Heh, you look so foreboding, Ambrosia.

I wonder why.  Let us proceed to the next one.
