Language Cheat Reincarnation - Young Girl Vtuber Saves the World - Chapter 99.4
SS 4. [Merry Christmas]
I was invited as a guest for the Angu Ogu Christmas Livestream, but…
<<So that’s what Christmas is like in Japan, huh? In America, ham and mashed potatoes are the classics. We leave a letter, milk, and cookies as a thank-you to Santa.>>
<<Oh, I see.>>
<<On that day, it’s the children’s job to wake up their parents. And under the tree, there are lots of presents. We tear the wrapping paper eagerly.>>
<<It’s like Christmas straight out of a movie, huh?>>
<<Hahaha! In Japan, I guess they carefully unwrap each present, right? By the time they finish opening them, Christmas is over!>>
<<That’s a good joke! Hahaha! Or not!?>>
What’s with this American joke?
Don’t involve me in weird things! And besides…
<<Ogu, let’s stop here.>>
<<Don’t say that, Iroha. It must be lonely for you.>>
<<Oh no! This guy is getting annoying! You’re drinking alcohol??>>
<<That’s not true, you know.>>
She can’t even speak properly.
Oh well, she’s drunk. She shouldn’t have overdone it since she’s not used to drinking.
<<Ogu, you’ve had too much to drink. You should drink moderately, it’s harmful to your body.>>
<<Because, you know! Hyeeee,>>
Now she’s crying her eyes out!
Angu Ogu cries out in a sobbing voice.
<<But, but~! I’m so saaaad! It’s Christmas today, but I’m all alone and lonely. I wanted to feel closer to Iroha, so I went to the trouble of preparing Champagne. Isn’t it okay to have a little? Beeeeeeen!>>
<<Ogu, you were thinking that huh?>>
>Oh, so Champagne is that kind of alcohol. (U.S.)
>Ogu, don’t cry! (U.S.)
<<Wait a minute, Ogu. Are you drinking Champagne?>>
<<Huh? Y-Yes. In Japan, you drink this sweet sparkling wine, right? I can only get it in Japan, so I went through the trouble of ordering it. Wait, is it not okay to drink it?>>
I let out a sigh at that moment.
<<What the hell?>>
I let out a sigh.
It was grand.
<<Ogu, let me tell you one thing. “Champagne” isn’t alcohol!>>
<<It’s juice! It doesn’t have any alcohol in it!>>
>Wow, that’s embarrassing! (U.S.)
>I didn’t realize it while she was drunk, but some people pointed it out in the chats. LOL (U.S.)
<<No, no, no!? But everyone in Japan drinks it. That’s what Ah-nee said!>>
<<Um, well, in that case, umm…>>
<<By the way, why were you so drunk, Ogu?>>
<<Don’t tell me to stoppplll!?>>
<<Could it be that you got so drunk just from the atmosphere? Hehe, you’re such a child, aren’t you? And you were getting all clingy and crying while sober.>>
>Stop it! LOL (U.S.)
>Ogu’s life gauge has been at zero for a while now!
>Confirmed clip material LOL (U.S.)
<<Th-this is. Yes! It’s because the eggnog had brandy in it! That’s why!>>
>Your excuses are getting desperate LOL (U.S.)
>Isn’t eggnog a drink made with eggs, milk, and cinnamon? I heard people drink it during Christmas in America.
<<I see. So it was because of the eggnog. So, where is it?>>
<<Aaaah. To-to-that’s all for today’s stream! “Rest in peaceeee!”.>>
>Rest in peace (U.S.)
>Can you rest in peace after this? (U.S.)
>She ran away LOL
Angu Ogu’s Christmas became filled with embarrassment.
But, I think.
It’s much better than sadness.
Late at night on that day,
As the date changed and Christmas Day arrived,
I was enveloped in drowsiness, gazing at the snow falling outside the window when suddenly, “――Bam! Crash!”.
What a noisy sound!
I jolted awake, hastily pulling the blanket over me.
“Phew, thank goodness Iroha-chan isn’t awake!”
But I was wide awake!?
However, I couldn’t just act like I wasn’t awake.
After all, the noise source had somehow infiltrated the room, and it was none other than Ah-nee, who was now dressed up as Santa Claus.
“Phew, that was close. Even though Iroha Mama asked me to play Santa today because I couldn’t go home, I almost messed up.”
Mom, seriously! It’s a casting mistake!
Ah-nee is unsuited for covert operations!
Suddenly, she spoke to me gently, and my heart skipped a beat.
Did she somehow realize that I was awake? But no, it was different.
“I know deep down, Iroha-chan is a kind child.”
Ah-nee gently stroked my head.
Why is that? Without thinking, I almost said, “…………”
“Maybe there will be difficult times ahead. Iroha-chan has a special power, so you might be expected to act accordingly. But don’t forget,”
“Just remember what you truly ‘like.’ As long as you don’t forget that, everything will be alright. With your abilities, Iroha-chan, you can overcome any challenge.”
Perhaps she noticed that I was awake?
Hey, Ah-nee. I am—
“Wait a minute! Wasn’t I super cool just now?! I was saying something that sounded right, but it felt like I knew everything!”
You’ve ruined it!
I cried in a different sense. Return the emotion!
The next morning, I sat absentmindedly on the bed.
After that, Ah-nee enjoyed playing make-believe and continued saying those lines.
It was so noisy that I couldn’t sleep at all!
And I was waiting for when she would finally leave after leaving the presents.
I stared down at the floor, completely absorbed.
There, I saw…
Ah-nee in Santa costume was sprawled on her back, belly exposed, and fast asleep.
That’s a complete disaster!
– This is a story from before Iroha entered middle school.
Just an ordinary moment from Iroha’s everyday life.
