Her heart skipped a beat when she saw it. High-definition surveillance footage played on the television.

Her mother talking on the phone in the grocery checkout.

Her brother playing video games with friends.

Her best friend driving her car.

Her boyfriend commuting on the bus to work.

Her dad playing basketball at the gym.

She dropped the vase, shattering what was left, putting her hand to her mouth in horror.

In His Time

Loving Shri Krishn like her Arya, she grew up to the age of 18, with her friends virtually, Prapti and Trisha.But she failed to realise that she was supposed to be in his time, and not Kaliyuga. ~~~~~"You are lying right?" the words left her mouth almost inaudible. "Na Sakhi. Tumhe lagta hai ki main tumse asatya kehne ki shamta rakhta hu?" his voice as if a music, had the 3 girls melting. "Apitu Bhrata Krishn, hum aur Dwaparyug ki Rajkumari? Yeh kaise sambhav hai?" asked Trisha, who wasn't zoned out like the other two. "Vaise hi behena, jaise hum teeno hai. Ham bhi toh Dwapar ke Rajkumar Rajakumari hai," Krishn smiled, while Akshita and Prapti were looking at him, not blinking for once."Rajkumar kaha jagat rachayeta ho tum. Hame bada bhola hi samjh rakha hai," Prapti whispered in a low voice, and Krishn heard it, but yet didn't react other than glancing a amused look at her."Jiji, itna sankoch na kare. Aap teeno Dwaparyug se hi ho. Apitu shrap ke karan aapko yaha aana pada," Subhadra tried to make them understand their reality. "Ab chale? Bada vilambh ho raha hai. Kala pradarshan nahi dekhna aap sabko?" Dusshala pouted, causing the other five to laugh. "Avashya sakhi," Krishn spoke, feeling two pair of eyes still on himself. "Chale sakhi?" he asked, breaking the trance of his two sakhis, who had sworn their life to him.

Please Let Me Live a Lazy Life!

Basic Synopsis: Maki Tanaka is lazy. Really, that's it.Real Synopsis: Maki Tanaka had died after being pushed in front of the speeding truck. Without even a rest in between, he found himself transmigrated to the most innovated Otome Game of the Year called 'The Noblest of Love'.Honestly, Tanaka couldn't care less about being inside of an otome game. He couldn't care less about all the capture targets, the so-called villain, the heroine, and even less about the fact that he's supposed to be some cannon fodder for his brother, Edward, who is one of the capture targets, to step on. He just wanted to sleep dammit.After angering his father (therefore pissing off the rest of his family) with his listlessness, he was banished to Wisteria Estate on the other side of the capital separated from the main household. Which is awesome for Tanaka because he doesn't have to listen to his so-called 'family' prattle on and on about his uselessness. Even so, it seemed there are some things that he couldn't avoid... The villain for example.Tanaka: I'm sleepy...Villain: Then let me hold you in my arms while you sleep~Tanaka: I'm hungry...Villain: Then I'll feed you~Tanaka: I'm tired...Villain: A bath might help you relax. Just turn around and let me wash your back~Tanaka: I'm sore...Villain: I can massage your body~Tanaka: ...But it's your fault that I'm sore...(AN: The MC starts off as a child, so any romantic development would be in later chapters. Some innocent tofu-touching will happen early on though~)
