Saving 80,000 Gold in an Another World for Retirement - Chapter 335
Anyway, I asked Sabine to gather information for now.
Depending on the situation, I may then request sabotage.
…Sabine-chan said, “If it’s just information gathering, I’ll give you a discount, but if it’s sabotage, I’ll get proper compensation, right?”, but well, it can’t be helped…
Then I said, “Only if you do a job worthy of that,” so I think she’ll do it seriously, but…
I don’t think that Marquis Bozes-sama alone can proceed with the engagement and marriage of another nobleman, Hime Miko of Thunder, without the King’s permission. Therefore, I asked Sabine-chan to investigate from the king’s side.
I asked Sabine-chan to gather information, and also to make arrangements for the king, so that the king could exercise his authority if it came to an emergency.
She’ll handle the king sweetly and say, ‘I’m going to get married with my Mitsuha-neesama~!” and it will be on hold for at least another four to five years.
“Mitsuha-neesama, it looks like we won’t be talking about the party anymore.” (Sabine)
“…So quick~! You work fast~!!” (Mitsuha)
It’s the long-awaited report from Sabine-chan!
What’s more, it’s not just information gathering, but with an unexpected great result!!
“Thank you, Sabine-chan! You saved me…
…so how did that happen?” (Mitsuha)
Yeah, I’d like to hear that and refer to it for the next time.
“When I told my father that the Marquis Bozes was plotting something about Mitsuha-neesama’s engagement, he did some investigations……” (Sabine)
“Yes, yes…” (Mitsuha)
“It seems that the reason why Marquis Bozes tried to hold a party was to create a fait accompli by introducing his own son to everyone as Mitsuha-neesama’s fiancée.
And it seems that he was planning to make the list of people to invite, organizing of the party, hostess, and other things convenient for himself by saying that the nominal host of the party was Mitsuha-neesama, that the party was held at her own will, and that she was the actual organizer of the party…” (Sabine)
“Eh, me and Alexis-sama?” (Mitsuha)
“No, the younger one.” (Sabine)
What’s with that? With Theodore-sama!?
…Marquis Bozes, what are you thinking?
“…And then, my father got angry, which is rare. ‘He’s aiming for Mitsuha, I won’t let him get away with it!’ or something like that…” (Sabine)
“Fumu fumu… Wait, what the hell’s with that!!” (Mitsuha)
“And when Marquis Icebringer heard about it, he said ‘No! Mitsuha-dono should be with my son!’…
Marquis Icebringer’s youngest child born to the second wife is around 20 years old.” (Sabine)
“No! No no no no no no!!” (Mitsuha)
“So, my father and Marquis Bozes and Marquis Icebringer had a discussion…” (Sabine)
Ah, I can almost see the fallout…
“A big fight broke out with yelling and grabbing. If the guards hadn’t held them from each other, we might have been in a bit of trouble…” (Sabine)
“No, that’s way more than a ‘bit of trouble’…” (Mitsuha)
Well, Marquis Icebringer seems to have been best friends with the king since long ago, so it still can be seen as a “quarrel between friends”, but this would be a problem for other nobles… Is Marquis Bozes okay…?
“Well, Alexis-sama is the one your older sister is aiming for. And His Highness the Crown Prince is… I told you before, I’m not into sparkly ones…
Besides, I’m not suited for being a queen in the first place…” (Mitsuha)
“Yeah, I know.” (Sabine)
What did you…?!
…No, she’s right, I said it myself, but I’m a little annoyed that she so easily affirmed it.
“Mitsuha-neesama, you don’t seem to be good at sitting on the throne with a fake smile on your face, or at handling the attack of many wives at a party, or smiling at the diplomatic table.
Although, you seem to be good at crashing meetings, social gatherings, and messing things up…” (Sabine)
“Sh, shut up!… But, well, you’re exactly right though…
I’m better suited to work on-site with everyone…” (Mitsuha)
“Yeah, I know.” (Sabine)
“Ah, my father is not trying to get Mitsuha engaged to Oniisama, but to Luchen.” (Sabine)
Damn it, have they discovered my love of cool uncles and cute things?
No, Luchen-kun is only 10 years old, but I look like I’m around 12 years old. It seems that it’s not unusual for political marriages to be 10 or 20 years apart.
…Well, it seems that it’s usually the men who are older.
I guess that means that Luchen-kun will be demoted from nobility to become a Duke or Marquis.
But since he’s the second in line to the throne after his brother, he’ll probably be in the position of a backup spare in case something happens before his brother has a child…
And I can keep my Viscountship, and in the future, it will be passed to my second child… Wait, why am I seriously thinking about that?!
“…No way! Until I reach the right age, never!!” (Mitsuha)
Yes, as a Japanese person, I’m still not old enough!
“…So, how old do you have to be? Oneesama, how old are you now?” (Sabine)
“Stop bringing up my age~~!!” (Mitsuha)
“That’s right, it’s explosive-reactive armor!!” (Mitsuha)
Mitsuha, who was tending to the store after opening the General Trade Mitsuha for the first time in a while, suddenly shouted something out loud.
Fortunately, there were no customers or Sabine-chan…
“Yes, just put up some armor plates!
This time, we were able to safely avoid the crisis due to the enemy’s splitting up, but we don’t know when we’ll be in trouble again. And at that time, there’s a possibility that the enemy will fight together without splitting up.
Safety measures should be taken here.
…And since we can’t go on the offense, we have no choice but to solidify our defenses.
Since I can’t lock myself in a fortress or intercept them, the only effective methods I can take would be… decoy, traps, or explosive reactive armor! It should also have to be combat-proofed, combat-proofed!!
To that end…” (Mitsuha)
…an evil one.
“Let’s create a group that accentuates bullet repellent!” (Mitsuha)
Somehow, she seemed to be plotting something bad…
“…So, I’m thinking of expanding the trading range of ‘Beatrice Trading’ and creating affiliated stores in neighboring countries!” (Mitsuha)
Beatrice-chan was surprised at my sudden declaration.
Yeah, just like the Rephilia trade in the new continent, we will raise it into a firm that has influence over the commercial and aristocratic circles of this country!
Over here on the old continent, we only sell a few alcoholic beverages, snacks, and sweets at the General Trade Mitsuha, but not on such a large scale.
…It’s unnatural for me to have a lot of alcohol in stock as a surplus of things that my friends secretly brought over from my homeland for me to use. Even cosmetics.
Well, I don’t think anyone would believe that statement anymore!
That’s why I’m going to put a little more effort into luxury goods, and make it a store with a strong influence even though the distribution volume is small.
…As far as influence goes, is the name value of “Hime Miko of Thunder-sama” enough?
No, no, no, there is a difference between an influence that has no real benefit, and a name that has money and actual goods!
“Adelaide-chan, how about presiding over a social gathering of noble daughters? I think the name ‘Sorority’ would be good…” (Mitsuha)
Ah, was it a little too sudden…?
But I can’t leave this to Sabine-chan.
…She’s too young, and in the first place, she’s a princess…
Well, let’s have Sabine-chan as an honorary member and act as a mascot.
Foiling is important!
Hey there everyone!!
So how was the anime so far?
