Tensei Shoujo no Rirekisho - Chapter 68.3
Hmm, Claude-san is somehow kind and has economic power, so if there was love, I might have flirted with him, but…
Oh well. In any case, I don’t want to marry someone just to get a knighthood.
“I see, Cain-sama. It’s true that marrying Claude-san would allow me to become a semi-nobleman without any problems, but I… I originally planned to get a knighthood by myself. I’ve been asked to work as hard as I can.”
I said that and smiled.
Before I went to school, I was told by Bash-san to get a knighthood, or a merchant’s knighthood, or a healing knighthood. It was said that these three quasi-aristocratic titles can be obtained by non-wizards depending on their efforts.
If you do well in military service, you get a knighthood. If you do well in business, you get a merchant’s knighthood. If you contribute to medicine, you get a healing knighthood.
Bash-san had asked me to get one of those three knighthoods and help him run the Ruby Forn’s estate.
Honestly, I’m not mad at Bash-san. He sent me to school, and he prepared a lot of things for me to get to the Royal Palace. He’s been really good to me, and he’s always been very attentive to me even when it comes to Alec-sama.
I would love to help Bash-san if I could.
“Yes, I’m sure Ryou will be able to get a knighthood on your own. I’m trying my best to get a knighthood as well, but I think Ryou will get it sooner than me.”
Cain-sama said that and laughed.
It looks like I’ll be able to get Cain-sama’s cooperation. All that’s left is to break off the engagement with Claude-sama hopefully without a hitch!
As I was about to think about my decision to do something, I heard the door open.
I looked in the direction of the sound and saw that someone was looking at us through the slightly opened door.
Cain-sama looked so surprised that he let out a voice and stood up.
Someone who seemed startled by Cain-sama’s call exclaimed, “Gaff!” but the door opened vigorously and Irene showed up. She’s holding a little girl near her chest. The girl who was just peeking through the doorway.
Oh no, she’s so cute! So this is the rumored sister of Alan and Cain-sama, Chiira!
We seemed to be all strangers to Chiira, and she looked at us with a frightened look on her face.
“Mother! Let me hold Chiira, too.”
An emotional Cain-sama was pleading with Irene-san.
Irene-san smiled and nodded then entrusted Chiira-chan to Cain-sama. Chiira-chan seemed to be scared, but she was being held quietly.
“Oh Ryou, that outfit is great. It looks good on you.”
Thank you for the compliment, Irene. It’s good to give simple words of praise.
“Irene-sama, I see that this is Chiira, right? Alan and Cain-sama have told me a bit about her. May I hold her?”
“Of course. She’s a little shy, but she’s a friendly girl once she gets used to you.”
I got permission from Irene-sama, so I held Cheela’s pudgy hands as Cain-sama was holding her.
Oh no, it feels so good. What a dangerous touch. I’m beginning to feel like I understand how a pedophile feels.
Cain-sama was teaching Chiira-chan the words, ‘It’s Brother Cain!’ and Chiira-chan was saying back, ‘Kain~nii-sama~.’
Besides that Alan, who until a while ago was in a state of absence due to his uncle’s pedophile shock, had somehow revived, and He said ‘call me master’. The cute little Chiira-chan was very cute when she said ‘Oyabun’, but later on, I think I might have to say a few words to my henchmen.
Irene told me, at that time, that Chiira-chan is a magician. Now that Chiira can speak, she tried to see if she could see mana, and it seemed that she could see it.
Alan said, “Heh,” as if it was nothing, but two wizards in this day and age is probably a pretty amazing thing.
When Cain-sama found out that Chiira-chan was a wizard, he looked complicated for a moment, but he smiled gently as he called out, ”Good for you, Chiira.”
What can I say, I think Cain-sama is a real gentleman.
If I was Cain-sama, I’d say why am I the only one who can’t use magic or why is everything so unfair, and I’d make an extremely ugly face at such a small child.
As expected of you, Cain-sama. You’re just a follower and a poet!
Apparently Irene-san had been busy and showed up here to announce that they are hosting a welcome home dinner party for us today and that she is proud of her cute little Chiira.
A dinner party or something like that, it’s just that they’re going to have a rather fancy dinner, and the only people attending are their family members.
I told her that I wanted her to break off the engagement then. Since Claude-san was going to be there, she agreed.
“But I want you to do it. I don’t feel like it’s a good idea to go on the sly,” Irene said.
Irene is still here, but after a bit of talking, I decide to prepare for the dinner party.
