10 Years After Saying 'Leave this to me and go,' I Became a Legend - Chapter 67
A Changed Milka
After looking a little closer, I saw that it was Milka.
Serulis had probably run back to her home in order to get some new clothes.
“Thi-this is embarrassing.”
Milka said awkwardly.
They were likely Serulis’s old clothes.
It was cute and quite appropriate for the rich daughter of Lord Morton.
There were frills and accessories.
Her hair had also been brushed and cleaned.
Serulis must have done it for her as they bathed.
That was why Serulis had been so eager to clean the place.
Serulis stood next to Milka with the smuggest expression.
She had seen my surprise at this transformation.
“You did this?”
I asked. And Serulis said proudly,
“What do you think? Doesn’t it suit her?”
“These pretty clothes don’t suit me at all!”
“That’s not true. It looks very cute.”
“Bu-but. There is no way that it does. I-I’m going to go and change!”
Milka turned around and left.
I called after her, and she stopped.
“I-I’m sorry. But I can’t clean in these clothes, can I?”
I think she thought I was going to be upset.
“Milka. I think it looks very nice on you. It is very cute.”
“Really? N-no. You don’t need to flatter me. I know that it looks horrible on me.”
“No. Why would I lie? It does look good. Are these your old clothes, Serulis?”
“Yes. I decided to give her my old clothes.”
“Thank you, Serulis. That would be a great help.”
“Oh-oh. It’s nothing, you know!”
Serulis said, a little embarrassed.
“Shia, Luchila. What do you think?”
“It’s very nice. Yes, yes. It is very cute.”
Shia said as she circled Milka several times.
“Yes. It’s cute. It’s like dressing up a pack horse, as they say.”
Luchila didn’t realize it, but this wasn’t exactly a compliment.
But Milka looked happy as she blushed. And so I didn’t bother explaining it to her.
She was doing that a lot.
She started petting Grulf’s head after he came close.
Grulf looked confused as she scratched his fur.
Then he looked towards me for help.
Gerberga flew down and landed on Grulf’s back.
“Lord Gerberga is very cute as well.”
Milka’s attention moved to Gerberga, who was now subject to her petting.
Gerberga had come down to help Grulf, who was at a loss over what to do.
He was a kind chicken.
After that, I had Serulis and Milka registered at the door in the library.
When that was finished, Milka said excitedly,
“I’m going to go and clean now!”
“Why don’t you start tomorrow?”
“You were put in such nice clothes. You should relax and enjoy it.”
“Do you think so?”
Serulis said as she patted Milka on the head.
After that, Serulis, Shia, Luchila and I went to the drawing room.
I didn’t call Gerberga, but he came anyway.
“Mister Locke. What is it?”
“Hmm. Eric asked me to search for the noblemen who were backing Kabino.”
“That is quite the request.”
And so I explained everything that Eric had told me to Serulis.
As we talked, Gerberga perched on my lap.
“That will be very dangerous.”
“You are waiting for Kabino’s confession for now?”
“They also need to inspect all of the evidence confiscated from his mansion.”
“Will the district manager keep you informed of everything?”
Shia said. Serulis looked at me very seriously.
Of course, I just needed to show the necklace that Eric had given me.
However, I should only use it when it was necessary. And so I was hesitant to use it from the beginning.
Besides, I wasn’t really worried about acquiring information about the investigation.
“I did tell Eric to protect the district manager, and prevent others from interfering with his work.”
Serulis listened carefully.
“Eric should do everything that he can to protect the evidence. I even told him that Kabino might be assassinated if he is not careful.”
“I see. I do think that that could happen.”
“But how will he ensure it?”
“Will he assign more bodyguards?”
“I don’t think he would want to attract too much attention. Yes…”
I thought about it.
“Perhaps he will move the evidence and Kabino to the palace and make that the headquarters for the investigation.”
“Even if it is done in the palace, who will be investigating?”
“I don’t know. It’s all up to Eric.”
And I knew that Eric would choose someone that was trustworthy.
“It’s a serious matter and also very urgent. That being said, we cannot act recklessly either.”
“Any wrong moves will make them cautious.”
“I just want to paint a target on all of the questionable nobles.”
Then Shia blurted,
“It is only Kabino now?”
“What do you mean?”
“Kabino was gathering sacrifices, wasn’t he? And his mansion was stocking weapons.”
“If there are great noblemen backing him, I think there should be other people at the bottom like Kabino, who are doing the same thing.”
“I suppose so.”
Shia stood up from her chair.
“I’m going to go and see if there are any quests for missing persons.”
“I’ll go with you!”
Serulis said as she jumped off of her chair.
