The Inner Palace Tale of a Villainess Noble Girl - Chapter 5
It had been ten days since Diana had entered the inner palace. During that time, Diana did the following
The only thing she did during that time was to deal with the side rooms that came to greet her one after another and to gossip at the tea party.
Although it was known, the inner palace seems to be a very haphazard place.
With Diana’s entry into the palace, the confrontation between the side chambers, which had been going on loosely under the radar until now, is no longer in the background. It surfaced.
She has an aristocrat from an ancient and traditional family and works with a firm belief that ‘this is what a noblewoman should be like’. With the Conservatives.
The so-called emerging nobility, which has become an aristocracy in recognition of new ventures and achievements, and the fiefdoms, even if not so high in family status. The innovators sent out from such a house, highly regarded for their management and service to the country.
The conservative entourage gathered in The Peony and the innovative entourage in The Red Rose, and in just ten days, the factions called the ‘Peony Faction’ and the ‘Red Rose Faction’ were born. In terms of power, the “Red Rose Faction” has the advantage for now.
…However, the ‘Red Rose Faction’ had one fatal weakness.
“…How did this happen?”
“Maybe it was destined to be like this when we were given the ‘Red Rose Room’!”
No wonder Rita’s reckless matchmaking was unreasonable. The relationships in the inner palace were already sulking to an unfixable level when Diana jumped in, so there it is.
Liliane Landrose is a princess of the most prestigious aristocracy since the founding of the country. Her pride as a noblewoman is higher than anyone else’s, and she has no hesitation in declaring that the upstart aristocracy is not a nobleman. She is surrounded by the princesses of the same “prestigious” families, and they prefer her to the new aristocracy and rank. She was said to have been blatantly disdainful of the side of the house where she was being treated.
It’s natural that the opposition to her would grow. However, she was given the Peony Room, the highest-ranking side room in the rear court. If she openly rebelled against them, she would be putting herself in danger. As a result, the rebellion against the faction led by Liliane has been growing steadily below the surface.
That’s when Diana, who was given the Red Rose Room, appeared on the scene. She was the Countess of the Countess, but she stood above Liliane, and she was a member of all the side rooms that were opposed to Liliane. He was a star of hope. Moreover, as soon as he entered the rear court, he was favored by His Majesty, and was able to beat Liliane to the punch at the tea party the next day.
–You’ll be able to compete with the conservative aristocrats if you gather under this man.
Such information was conveyed with lightning speed, and from the day after the tea party, the entourage came to Diana one after another. He began to visit me to greet me.
Of course, whoever was in a hurry was the one who had been greeted. Although he hurriedly gathered information and grasped the complicated relationships of the current rearguard, it was already too late. Regardless of Diana’s will, the ‘Red Rose Faction’ has established itself as a respectable faction, and as a result Diana was forced to stand as the first one to do so.
If you think about it, we are a very old family, and the title is a count. It’s a very strange family to lead an ‘innovator’.
“I don’t know… And it’s true that the Crester family has a considerably higher status compared to its title. From the point of view of all the old houses, especially those of the Marquess rank, they are snooty, aren’t they?”
“Either way I don’t want to be bothered with fighting and I don’t want to do something tiring like leading a faction.”
Even though it’s unavoidable, it’s still an awkward situation for Lady Diana.
“Not at all because your father’s research isn’t helping at the crucial point.”
Diana and Rita complain incessantly. It’s the “Red Rose Room”, and since the people have already paid, they complain without restraint or mercy.
–You will be able to find a lot more than just a few of them. The position of ‘Red Roses-sama’ who is leading…was that Diana had zero motivation. She sincerely thinks, “I don’t need to bother fighting, let’s just go in peace.”
The degree of decency to the extent that it’s not good to blatantly discriminate against an emerging nobleman exists in Diana as well, to a point. I do. If you harass a man because you don’t like the pecking order set by the crown, you’re just taking it out on him. She also has the ability to think straight and make good decisions. And she has the calmness to analyze the situation and understand the situation.
But that doesn’t mean that she can’t accept the situation.
it’s a different matter. It would be human to be.
“Mostly, what am I supposed to do to lead a faction… We’re not like those idiots who just go around freely at night parties.”
“The basics would be the same. It’s not because I’m attracted to Lady Diana herself, but because I think it will give me an advantage if I follow her. From. “Isn’t that ‘advantage’ serious?” The point is, you want to win against a noble who’s supposed to be famous but if this happens specifically, you win! It’s something that doesn’t have the prospect of being able to do that.”
“That’s why I have a keen sense of a quagmire.”
Rita exhaled lightly and continued in disgust.
“Reluctantly, one of the specific ‘wins’ is which one will receive His Majesty’s favor. I think. The point is, which one of you, Lady Diana or Lady Liliane, will give His Majesty’s Son?”
“I hadn’t thought of that.”
Diana’s hand in hand, which is likely to be tweaked to say, You’re a side room of the inner palace, right? It’s a ‘win condition’ that is truly a blind spot.
“Come to think of it, those rumors are still alive and well, aren’t they? I thought there would be a correction from His Majesty’s side, but there isn’t one.”
“Oh, I think I’ve got a chamber I love~”
There was a level of small talk, exchanged at the level of tension that the dog three doors down from us had given birth to a puppy a week earlier. In a place called the palace of the rear of the palace, this is the most serious case. Rita is also Rita, who easily obtains that information, which has not even become a rumor, with a single sledgehammer. The flowing Diana is also Diana. They don’t seem to care about the king, after all.
Nevertheless, we have to check the details in the meantime. It’s a good idea to have what you’re looking for.
“So, who is this in the side room?”
“Baroness Sheila Callard. She’s sixteen years old, with blonde hair as pale as moonlight, and she’s neat and clean.”
“The Baron Callard…….didn’t the head of the family pass away just a few days ago, as I recall? “
“Yes, Lady Sheila is the late Baron’s daughter, the late Baron’s son. The man who succeeded to the baronetcy is the baron’s younger brother, the one who is an uncle to Lady Sheila. He seems to be a terrible man…. I heard that Sheila-sama was sold out halfway into the inner palace.”
“A lowly girl of lowly means, who despite her unfortunate circumstances, acts with cheerfulness and vivacity, catches the eye of the king, and before long, she finds love. Nurturing…It’s like a love story plot that seems to be going viral.”
“By the way, it seems to be a one-sided favor arrow from His Majesty at the moment.”
“I hope Lady Sheila will stick with it. His Majesty, thank you, for considering the feelings of your opponent, for anticipating every eventuality, and for your position. I don’t seem to have enough skills yet to unravel different truths depending on the person or anything like that. Maybe if you have a crush on someone and worry about love, you’ll be a little better off.”
“As for me, I’m sorry to say that I’ve been struggling so much, confessing to Lady Sheila, being rejected and feeling down! I sincerely hope that’s what happens.”
It is a relentless conversation in which even the king of a country is helpless. It’s supposed to be a relatively important piece of information, but I can’t feel the slightest hint of that from these two. In fact, I think of it as nothing more than chit-chat.
“Be that as it may, where did His Majesty find Sheila-sama?”
“Ten days ago, they said he was on his way back from the Red Rose Room. His Majesty was captivated at first sight by Lady Sheila, who was feeding the birds behind the building.”
“That’s a pretty common pattern. According to the theory of the story, I was so angry when I found out about it that I interfered with their relationship, and the two of them got in trouble. It would mean that I’d have to play a part in making love rise.”
“You’re not going to do that, are you?”
“No, of course not. It’s a pain in the ass.”
With a wave of her hand, Diana replies. Diana, who cares about the king like a pebble on the side of the road, has no incentive to be angry in the first place.
“The question is, how long can this information be hidden?”
“We’re the only ones who know about it now. Just as the rumors with Lady Diana are going on, Her Majesty is using it as a cover to sneak in. And you have been attending to Master Sheila. If we don’t get out of our usual sorts, I don’t think we’ll be leaking for a while.”
“We may be happy about it, but the ladies from the palace will not be so happy. It’s already been ten days since I arrived at the rear of the palace. They know better than anyone that, contrary to popular belief, His Majesty hasn’t visited us since the first day.”
“I don’t think they’ll be leaking it, though. In fact, I’m sure they think it would be an embarrassment to Lady Diana if word got out that Her Majesty’s visit wasn’t happening.”
That idea never occurred to me, again. Surely the ‘truth’ that the Lord, who is rumored to be a favorite princess, is not so much in reality as it is in normal circumstances. It must be hard for those who serve. The thought didn’t get stuck there, as it’s not just popular, it’s hooray for the book.
“Well, for now, tell the maidservants that I’m lamenting the difference between rumor and reality…”
“I’m sure the rumors will remain for some time. Lady Diana, however, must pretend to lament the absence of her Majesty’s visit.”
“Oh well I guess. Yeah, I’ll do my best.”
Diana, who is basically honest with herself, is not actually good at ‘acting’. Living life as it is and being misunderstood, that is the quality of the Crester family.
However, this is not the only thing that can be said. In order not to further complicate the already complicated relationships in the rear palace, it is very reluctant to say that Diana is the only way to make things work.
“If possible, I would like to meet Sheila-sama and get a feel for her personality, but I’m sure it will be difficult. “
“You’ll get your chance soon. It’s just in time for socializing.”
“Oh, is it that time already…?”
I don’t have fond memories of the social season. The family name of “Crester” and the lackadaisical sycophancy of the snobs who come up to us because of Diana’s appearance. The first year, when I struggled to deal with it all, my ‘notoriety’ grew as a result, and from the second year, I made decent connections It is no longer possible to build it. The two side rooms that currently bear the names ‘Water Lily’ and ‘Suzuran’ are actually precious exceptions.
[TLNote: I forgot what is Suzuran, forgive me.]
They have been given the name of the Red Rose, so they have no choice but to skip the evening party. And if you attend the evening party, as the “Countess of Crester,” you will be the head of the household, and you will be the head of the rear court. As the leader of the faction, it would be inevitable that he would be caught in the storm of the royal palace.
Diana took a deep breath and said to Rita.
“Get your paper and pen ready, please.”
“Are you going to tell the lord?”
“Yes, it’s the season already, which means they’re probably out of the territory. It won’t be a burden on the ‘dark’ ones either.”
Rita brought me a piece of paper and Diana wrote down everything that had happened since she entered the palace.
