Saving 80,000 Gold in an Another World for Retirement - Chapter 336
“W-W-W-W-W-W-W-What is this ‘Sorority’ thing?…” (Adelaide)
Asking the obvious question now, Adelaide-chan.
Since I became the head of the Viscount’s family and started to be called the “Hime Miko of Thunder”, she has been speaking to me in a refined manner as if we were two noble children, but perhaps out of surprise, her tone has become a bit clumsy, like when we first met… When I was just a commoner and a merchant who received business orders from the Viscount Reiner family.
…No, I’m glad that such a person is like a good friend to me.
“A social organization whose main members are distinguished women, that is “Sorority”. Most are aristocrats, but the children of large merchant families and daughters of politicians are also welcome…… However, only if all members approve of it.
The purpose is mutual exchange and friendship, and the exchange of information and helping each other, not related to the factions of their parents.
The advantage is that you’ll have your own contacts, connections, and sources of information, regardless of your parents’ influence, and your friends can help you in many ways. You can ask to spread rumors of your good points to your target gentleman or to make friends at a party…
And I was wondering if I could get you to be the head of the organization and the cohesive part of it, Adelaide-chan…
The Viscount Yamano family will provide all expenses and necessary supplies. In addition, members will have priority in the sale of alcohol, cosmetics, food, jewelry, dresses, and many other items sent from my home country……” (Mitsuha)
“I’m in!!” (Adelaide)
Alright, I’ve got a bite!
……Well, it’s not surprising.
For the Reiner family, a newly emerging Viscountcy, there was no way they could pass up such a tasty offer.
Besides, even if Adelaide-chan doesn’t like it, there’s no way Viscount-sama and his wife would refuse.
“Sorority” itself is attractive, adding Hime Miko’s full backing, and considering the current situation that if you have a deep connection with me, your position among the nobility will be strengthened, I don’t think you have the option of refusing.
Besides, being on good terms with me will inevitably mean that you can get close to the royal family and Marquis Bozes, who are on good terms with me.
Sabine-chan is too young and royalty, so I can’t put her in an important position. Let’s just make her a mascot. It would still have a sufficient intimidating effect on any adversary.
Besides, if she doesn’t get involved in the “Sorority” at all, I can’t predict what kind of action Sabine-chan will take, so that’s really scary…
Beatrice-chan will be busier in various ways with branching out and with the business association, so she’s a no.
…Besides, if I leave it to Beatrice-chan, it will complicate the relationship between the Beatrice Trading Company and the General Trade Mitsuha.
If cosmetics, alcohol, and “other items that were not available at the General Trade Mitsuha” were only offered in “Sorority” as weapons, and the head was Beatrice-chan… “Beatrice-chan”… The owner of Beatrice Trading Company… That would be a no-brainer.
It’s a problem in many ways, such as the goods’ source and the relationship with General Trade Mitsuha.
Besides, if that happens, Marquis Bozes-sama and Iris-sama will definitely intervene, so it will be troublesome.
Marquis Bozes-sama is a good person, but that’s a personal level for me… If that’s the case.
If there’s something to do with the management of the Bozes territory, or if there’s a big profit to be made, he will have no choice but to bite it not as an individual, but as a lord. And if it’s related to the organization that his daughter presides over…
And Iris-sama will bite even more. The moment she realizes the existence of earth-made cosmetics and makeup technology.
Like a rabid dog attacking its prey……
…That’s right, there’s no way it would be good for me and Beatrice-chan…
In that respect, I have no such relationship with the Viscount Reiner household, so it’s safe.
We are both Viscounts, and they respect me as the “Hime-Miko of Thunder,” so I don’t think they will interfere with me in any strange way. I am also good friends with all the servants there.
And Adelaide-chan speaks almost on an equal footing with me.
…Yeah, it’s very doable…
Everyone here knows that Colette-chan is a commoner, so I can’t bring her to Sorority.
It’s widely known that Colette-chan used herself to protect me, so there would be no complaints if I took her with me, but Colette-chan would probably be uncomfortable.
In the New Continent, where no one knows who she is, she can just pretend to be an aristocratic girl and act like one, so she can play around and take it easy, but this is where she was born and raised. In Sorority, she’ll be a commoner among the noble ladies, so she’ll have an intense stomach ache.
That’s why I can’t take Colette-chan to “Sorority” very often.
Except when I need her as a helper.
Like in the New Continent, when I asked her to be a model for a makeup tutorial…
If it was for that kind of work, Colette-chan wouldn’t think anything of it. As a commoner and as a candidate for my vassal, it’s naturally part of her work.
“The higher nobility may complain that I, a daughter of a Viscount, am presiding over it…?” (Adelaide)
Adelaide-chan’s worries are understandable, but…
“It’ll be alright! If you look at what is being offered at the tea party, you can tell at a glance that I am fully behind it. If so, it means that Marquis Bozes and the King are backing it as well.
Besides, if there’s a daughter of a Count or Marquis who’ll despise and ostracize you because you’re a daughter of a Viscount and want to replace you with herself, I can simply say, ‘If you say that a member of a Viscount family, who is a low-ranking noble, is not suitable for Sorority, then I, a Viscount myself, is not qualified to be here, so I shall withdraw from Sorority’.
And because of the idiot who kicked out the leader, Adelaide-chan, and me, Hime Miko, who took over the “Sorority”, will then lose the sponsor of funds and supplies, it will eventually crumble.
‘That idiot who picked a fight with Hime Miko-sama’.
If a rumor like that gets around, you’re as good as dead in all social circles!” (Mitsuha)
“…Are you a demon?…” (Adelaide)
Adelaide-chan has a frightened face.
But she seems to have accepted my explanation unconditionally.
“Well, I don’t think such an idiot will appear. On this side at least…” (Mitsuha)
“…On this side?” (Adelaide)
“Ah, no, it’s nothing, don’t mind it, haha…” (Mitsuha)
That was close, too close, about the new continent… and the fact that I am going over there… was a secret.
“Now then, you have to explain to my parents and get their permission.” (Adelaide)
“There’s no need! The head of the emerging Viscount household would never refuse such a tasty offer!
Even if you try to refuse, they will definitely accept it!
Yes, you have no right of a veto from the beginning!!” (Mitsuha)
As I said that, Adelaide-chan growled, “Gurururu“. How cute…
“…But I don’t really hate it either, you know?
It’s a request from none other than Mitsuha, the Hime-Miko of Thunder, after all…” (Adelaide)
“”Because it sounds interesting!””
No, I knew she would say that.
That’s why I brought this offer to Adelaide-chan.
Adelaide-chan is, yeah that…
She’s similar to Beatrice-chan.
Because as a woman, you have to give up all the fun and interesting things, be patient, and stay quiet in the house.
She’s the type who can’t stand being behind the trend of this country.
“Great, that’s a good answer! Well then, let’s give it a try~!!” (Mitsuha)
