Saving 80,000 Gold in an Another World for Retirement - Chapter 314
New strategy 3
“That’s why we’re going to conduct a wish survey!” (Mitsuha)
After a brief explanation at the tea party, I declared that…
It seems that everyone didn’t quite understand.
“…Mitsuha-san, your explanation is too insufficient!” (Michelle)
“Oh, right, sorry……” (Mitsuha)
I was reprimanded by Micchan.
So I explained it again in detail.
“…In other words, you can refuse or cancel an unwanted engagement, and go with whomever you want to be engaged with?”
A member asked me that with glaring eyes, but…
“…No, you can refuse or cancel the engagement, but you can’t get engaged unless the other party wishes to do so……
Therefore, if you want to establish an engagement, please use only your own strength and the cooperation of your friends here as weapons. Just like with Carrea-sama, who was our Society’s first operation…
We only ask the Goddess-sama or the Messenger if you wish to refuse.” (Mitsuha)
Yeah, what about this one? About being on the pushing side towards those unwillingly.
Well, I think that few men who don’t have a fiancée or someone they have feelings for would not want to be begged by our members, but I don’t want to get involved in stealing someone by crushing their engagement or something like that.
For a villainous daughter-breaking-off-engagement-sucking thing, should only be in novels.
And the daughter of Earl Sierebart, Carrea de Sierebart, who was the client of our first operational activity, successfully got engaged to the target, the eldest son of the Earl’s family. So, everyone was full of confidence that they could do it, so there was no problem with my slightly provocative words.
“We can only [ask the Messenger to help the innocent and pious servant], not to do evil, to trample on the hearts of others, or to do anything that would make it impossible for us to stand proud to the Goddess!” (Mitsuha)
Well, everyone nodded their heads in agreement. It seems that they are convinced.
“That’s why, after listening to the wishes of those who have a request to make to the Messenger, and after deliberating whether or not it is an appropriate request to make, we will formally arrange and make the request.” (Mitsuha)
No one here asks specifically to whom or how.
The reason why we go to all this trouble is that if we just roughly put everyone together and say, [God will punish those who make an attempt on the members of the society!] if we did this, they would not get any marriage proposals.
Besides, all the children who are currently receiving good matchmaking or have mutually satisfying engagements are breaking up.
So we have to carefully assess that and plan to squash the ones we don’t like and not affect the ones we want.
A specific method? I haven’t thought about it yet. We’ll think it over after we see the results of the survey.
The results of the wish survey showed a sharp division into two groups [I am satisfied with my current fiancé. I would like to decline the other applications] and [Keep’em coming! Kick them out, I will choose the best one!].
And among the former group, three of them were being pressured by the other party’s position, and two of them were being forced by their fathers to switch fiancés…… Also, one wants to break off the engagement with her current fiancé.
Others were flooded with applications, but nothing so terrible, and it seems that it was usually enough to just decline, saying [I already have a fiancé].
“Right now, there are six cases that need to be addressed…
And when we manage to do that, we don’t know when they’ll get another application from other such people again soon, or to another member of the Society……
To do something about the current situation and prevent the problem from reoccurring in the future…” (Mitsuha)
“So we’ll just have to ask the Messenger!” (Sabine)
“Yes, indeed!” (Colette)
Colette-chan and Sabine-chan were saying things on their own.
……But, really, that seems to be the only way to go……
Attention in the morning paper, the decision in the evening paper! Kobe Newspaper, Part-time News!
“I have no choice but to do it now, don’t I?…” (Mitsuha)
Ok, so let’s start gathering and researching more info!
After that, I gathered a lot of information.
……Well, I heard most of it, but I also asked other members when the person wasn’t around to get some background information, and I gathered a lot of information from other children of noble families who were not members of ours.
There’s no child who hates talking to me. After all, I’m the head of Viscount Yamano, who sells products to Rephilia Trading, and the vice chairman of the society. Everyone was talking fluently about anything, trying to buy my interest.
Of course, I didn’t ask them directly, but I also gathered information indirectly, through connections and money.
Information should be collected in a variety of ways, complementing each other and verifying each other from multiple angles to improve accuracy.
I’m not so stupid as to take an explanation from one side and act on it without hearing what the other side has to say, no matter how much the member has to say.
Many people who are normally [good friends] lose their credibility as soon as they have a direct interest in them.
And this time it’s about the person they’re going to marry. Both them and their houses were full of interest.
So, even if the other party was not at fault in any way, they can try to make them look bad, break off the engagement, try to get compensation, or make a contract that would be favorable to them… They may also try to force the other party to enter into an engagement…
And to that, they may try to use the names of the Society and Viscount Yamano……
So, we will back them up.
If it’s to help those in need, I do not care if the name of the Yamano family was damaged in any way, but I will not tolerate being cheated or taken advantage of. That was the motto of the Yamano family, or rather, the [Yamano house].
I don’t care if it costs me 10,000 yen to get back the 100 yen I was cheated out of.
As long as the opponent will definitely suffer more than 100 yen in damage, making them regret trying to deceive the Yamano family and underestimating us. That was our family tradition.
I may be the only one left, but I will keep the tradition alive and pass it on to the next generation.
……If I could make the [next generation] that is.
Yeah, I can’t make the next generation by myself……
No good, I’m getting off track.
In any case, I will focus on collecting information, and I will not tolerate backstabbing.
And this time, although there were some exaggerations and gaps in perceptions, the declarations from the members were generally not wrong.
……So yeah, the members told the truth without misrepresentation.
And since everyone showed their sincerity, now it’s my turn.
Who will play the role of the messenger though?…
Beatrice-chan, whom I had few opportunities to meet recently due to political considerations?
Sabine-chan seems to want Beatrice-chan to join, so I’ll take this opportunity… Right, but she doesn’t speak the language of the new continent! Denied!!!!
Colette-chan or Sabine-chan…
They’re still not very fluent in the language of the new continent, and I’ve already introduced them as my sisters all over the place. I kept showing them around……. Rejected!
There’s no one else then! To begin with, there’s no one who can speak the language of the new continent like a native and is willing to keep my secrets with me.
……I have no choice, I’ll have to do it myself……
All the voices would go through a loudspeaker and a bonus if I have a voice changer, it’ll be fine.
And with wigs, colored contacts, foundation, cotton, masks, horse masks, catnip, pads…, don’t ask me what for!… And other assorted disguises that are the best of Earth’s science, and I probably won’t be recognized!
“Isn’t it okay to just put a pad on your chest?” (Sabine)
“Yeah, with just that, even I won’t be able to tell you’re Mitsuha!” (Colette)
“Shut up you two!” (Mitsuha)
Thank you for your continued support for this year. (^^)/
