[Roswaal: We~~ll now, Emilia-sama mustn’t get carried away, either. Fi~~rst of all, we should he~~ar what Rem’s ha~~s to say, no?]

[Emilia: Roswaal…… do you understand what has happened here? Rem…… your servant, has caused the… dea… death… of my benefactor… and your guest… Subaru]

[Roswaal: O~~f course I understand. Tha~~t is why I’m…… making sure we keep the conversation in line. ――We mustn’t let any misunderstandings get in the way of our mutual fe~elings]

Roswaal narrowed his yellow eye as he replied. Then, the clown turned his gaze towards Rem, seated beside him. Sensing his gaze, Rem nodded,

[Rem: Late last night in the East Wing…… there was an intruder on Emilia-sama’s level. Alerted to this by the alarm gems, Rem immediately went to the scene, and that’s when I found Subaru-kun crawling on the floor]

[Ram: Barusu was already under the curse’s effects by then]

[Rem: Yes, it is as big-sister-sama said. Subaru-kun was weakened to the verge of death. The curse’s effects had sapped his life-force to its absolute limit, and I determined that saving him was impossible……]

[Emilia: And so you crushed him to death with your flail. ――That only added to his suffering]

[Ram: Emilia-sama――]

Holding Rem’s hand at her side, Ram shot a harsh glare towards Emilia. But Emilia’s sharp, unrelenting gaze remained locked onto Rem,

[Emilia: The facts are facts. ……Subaru’s body, his arm, and his head… If you wanted to put him out of his misery, there should have been a gentler way. Instead, why did you…]

[Rem: That’s, because……]

[Emilia: …………]

Rem couldn’t answer Emilia’s question.
She did not say anything further, perhaps because her personality was not one for telling lies, and Emilia’s words had struck the core of her true motives.

Rem had harbored intense distrust towards Subaru back then.
After the second round of the loops in the Mansion―― having failed to conceal Subaru’s corpse after crushing him to death in the hallway, events led to this current discussion here.
Subaru’s friendly interaction with Ram must have only further inflamed her hostility, to the point where she could no longer resist her murderous intent.

――Just what was she thinking when she swung her iron flail towards Subaru in the upper floors of the Mansion?

Perhaps even Rem didn’t know this herself.

[Emilia: ――It was a slip of the hand… or because you hesitated…… those were the answers I wanted to hear…]

[Rem: ――――hg]

With closed eyes, Emilia sadly murmured as Rem’s face shot up.
It was unclear how much of Rem’s true feelings Emilia had grasped when she said those words. And it would always, forever remain unclear.

[Roswaal: Emilia-sama, where are you going?]

Seeing Emilia stand up, patting off the hems of her skirt, Roswaal’s expression vanished as he asked her this question.
Hearing it, Emilia brushed her hand over her long, silver hair,

[Emilia: ――I’m leaving. It has only been a short while, but thank you for your hospitality. Without your backing, I would not have been able to participate in the Royal Selection. But…… I cannot trust you anymore]

[Roswaal: Even if you don’t trust us, surely our relationship of mutual utilization would still be beneficial, don’t you think? Forfeiting your place for the sake of a tantrum couldn’t be called a wise decision]

[Emilia: Tantrum……?]

Hearing Roswaal’s remark, Emilia stopped in place as her expression stiffened in shock. Then, she promptly turned her steps towards Roswaal, and,

[Roswaal: ――――]

No one could have stopped that crisp sound from ringing out.
Her white fingers slapped hard across Roswaal’s blue-white cheek.
In front of the reddened, swelling cheek, the single slap already left Emilia out of breath. The one who had been slapped made no reaction, but instead held Ram back as she was about to stand with her changed complexion.

[Roswaal: Ram]

[Ram: But, Roswaal-sama――]

[Roswaal: It’s fine. You can stay seated. Emilia-sama, my apologies for Ram]

[Emilia: You’re always like this with me…… but when it’s Subaru… you won’t even say a thing……]

Biting her lip, Emilia glared at the collected Roswaal. But despite the furious rage churning in her amethyst eyes, Roswaal never lost his composure for an instant.
This was only a testament to their irreconcilable standpoints.

[Roswaal: Once you leave the Mansion, and return to the forest―― what will you have left?]

[Emilia: I was wrong to have been taken along by your beguiling words. My atonement…… my penance will come in many other forms. It was because of my mistake… that Subaru died]

Emilia closed her eyes, and quietly answered Roswaal’s question.
Then, with a slight shake of her head,

[Emilia: I will bring his soul with me, and lay him to rest in the forest. ――For Subaru, and the others, for as long it takes, I will devote my time to tend to their souls. That is all I will say]

With this, Emilia backed away from Roswaal, indicating that she had no intention to continue the conversation.
Her silver hair swayed as she turned her back, while Roswaal watched on with his mismatched eyes. Still seated in his chair, he reached out his hand towards the leaving figure―― but put it down again.

[Roswaal: If it has deviated from the writ, then…… this is where my pa~th ends]

[Ram: Roswaal-sama……]

Hearing Roswaal’s powerless whisper, Ram spilled a voice of concern as she took his hand. The clown glanced back at the girl’s worried gaze, while a weak smile rose onto his face,

[Roswaal: Ram, it seems you’ve won the wa~ger. Here is where my purpose reaches a standstill…… that is to say, the contract can now be fulfilled]

[Ram: ……yes. Yes, Roswaal-sama]

Leaving the two to their quiet exchange, Emilia proceeded toward Rem, who had stood up to open the door. Before passing her by, she looked to her solemnly bowed head,

[Emilia: Take me to where Subaru is]

[Rem: Emilia-sama, that would be……]

[Emilia: He’s in an awful state, I know. I will restore him as much as I can…… and take him with me… to the forest]

Watching the side of Emilia’s grief-stricken face, Rem’s expression stiffened as she lowered her head. Within that expression was something like regret, as well as something like anger.
Why did it have to turn out like this, she must’ve been wondering.

――Why did it turn out like this? No one knew the answer.

[Emilia: I’m sorry, Subaru―― I couldn’t do anything at all]

Emilia whispered at the very end.

  1. Wow.. I love rem and all but I’m getting some sort of guilty pleasure from Emilia rubbing in the murder of Subaru into her face. The gulit and anger she feels seems right given how much torment and suffering she made Subaru go through in those chapters

        1. Beatrice could not have saved Subaru at this point. There’s no stopping the curse once it’s activated here. However, it doesn’t null the fact that Rem atrociously murdered him here and claimed that it was to “put him out of his misery”. The utter violence she inflicted here, and the pain he suffered from it, are far, and I mean, infinitely far from “putting him out of his misery”. Emillia’s right here 100% but you’ve still got those fucked up in the head Rem fanatics who will justify and accept anything and everything and will also not hesitate to talk shit about other characters just to try and make it look legit. It is nauseating. Makes me lose hope in humanity.

          1. not sure where it was stated on that id only trust beako or tappeis words on that. rem is not an expert on curses she only saw he was dying from something. so quick subaru did not even know it was her, him crying for help. he was nice to her lol yeah i agree. i do not accept her trauma as an excuse to unjustly murder someone let alone torture them. she knew he almost died protecting emelia that alone proved he wasnt with the witch cult. acted purely on blood lust. also think its super lame she changed her mind about him so quickly its absurd. but then again sub was acting strange idk

    1. Yes. You get a glimpse of the disgust Rem held for Subaru because of the smell, and the danger that smell represents. While these actions were terrible, they were justified by her understanding of that smell, especially due to her trauma.

      Subaru happened to charm a young woman that hated him purely because of his smell. His actions changed them, like they change him every loop.

  2. wooo good luck on the date chicken ^^

    about the chapter: really shows how messed up some of the characters in this story can be, with Rosswaal/Ram and Rem trying covering over for the brutal murder of Subaru. feel more respect for Emillia for not wanting to have anything to do with them anymore. and yay for her slapping Rosswaal he deserved it.

    still like rest of the mansion team, i actually love the whole series for showing that kind of problematic sides to the characters,

          3. Emilia is a best girl. But she is nowhere as best as Rem. Rem’s the bestest.

            So, she tortured and murdered him once. Loosing limbs and lives is nothing new to Subaru. If he didn’t take his immortality into consideration, he wouldn’t even be there in the Mansion.
            But then, what did Rem give, after taking so much? Her trust, as she was the only one who believed him in his darkest hours? Her faith, when he lost the sight of his goal and gave up? Her warmth, as he was drowning in loss and self-resentment? Her life, as she died fighting for him?
            When he lost to Fate, and his heart turned to ash, there was nothing that could bring his soul back to live. Nothing but Rem. She gave him everything she had and everything he lost – the Future.

            Rem never “died for Subaru”. Ever. Don’t reinvent the story please.

            #1 She died by herself

            #2 She died because people of the mansion and village were in danger when the witch cultists attacked

            #3 She died because the witch cultists intruded IN MASTER ROSWAAL’S DOMAIN as she said so herself. She just went to “retrieve” Subarukun; Not “save him”.

            #4 Even as she was being erased, she willed for Subaru to suffer because of her, the same kind of shit she did to Ram. She never changed. Just a ugly piece of shit.

            Forgive me if I’m wrong, but do you have cheese for brains?
            #1 Misfortune. It’s clear Subaru was the target. Curse missed him and hit her.

            #2 It was Subaru’s choice to return to the Mansion after learning about the Cult activities. Rem tried to object, and later tried to keep him out of danger, while knowing too well what the Cult is capable of. Most likely, she knew she won’t return to the inn.

            #3 I’m sure you didn’t expect her to confess to Subaru in front of Petelgeuse? He literally told her to drop pretense, as it was clear she didn’t come there to bring judgement, but to save the boy. She also referred to Subaru as her ‘reason to die’.
            #3.5 Ok, just forget about the one where she literally sacrificed herself to let Subaru escape the fog.

            #4 She wanted to leave a mark, not a scar. And she didn’t even know Subaru would remember her. More like “he won’t remember but at least would feel some sort of a tug”.

            To sum it up, you get 2/10 – for your effort. It’s not like I took this idiocy for serious argument, but I though you should try and improve. Pretending to be retarded doesn’t count for trolling. Actually, it’s kind of disgrace all the true trolls out there. So, mind yourself, please.

          6. #1 How could Subaru be the target when he never even left his room in this loop anyway?

            #2 She would still have returned and died. This is because Ram messed up and Rem picked up the sense of danger.

            #3 What does that have to do with anything, I wonder?

            #4 Are you really going to justify it by saying she didn’t know he would stil remember her? And even if she didn’t know, it changes nothing at all. She still wished for something like this.

    1. Seems like an odd reason to hate a character. I mean, say that Rem was in the wrong all that you want here – but in their universe, having the stench of the Witch basically gives you a 100% chance of being an evil witch cultist. The fact that Subaru is an exception is not something Rem could have possibly known, and given her hatred for the cult, her actions were understandable – though unfortunate. Emilia’s reaction of course is even more justified, but come on now.

      Liked by 1 person

        1. Why would the Cult hate a half-elf, keeping in mind she might become a vessel for their object of worship?
          Rem’s circumstances, thought, are a bit different than mere dislike for the smell. Like was said, she really hates the cult for making her sister a cripple for life. She was also trained by Ros to hunt, torture and kill the cultists since she was 10. This hatred long ago became something like a habit for her.

          Also, I find in rather sweet that she took a liking to the smell of miasma after it became her lover’s signature for her.

Give emilia time to mature because her mental state is younger than rem to understand the meaning of love due to her being frozen since childhood only to get woken up by puck after hundred year. You can’t blame a kid for not understanding love.

  13. So, the plot… The lesson here is:
    There’s some sort of contract or a bet between Ram and Ros in case the story deviates from the Gospel writ. Not clear what happens exactly, but I gues Ram… kinda interested in producing the deviation, in order to win? Maybe she is barred from active intervention, but Subaru should notice this and maybe use her as a lever on Ros.

    And there’s also… mutual utilization between Emilia and Ros? Emilia’s point is clear – get the throne. But why would Ros want it? In anime he said he will kill the Dragon. The dragon was told to form a contract with royal bloodline, so Ros might be planning to use Emilia as bait once she becomes a king. So… killing the Dragon… for shit and giggles?
