Saving 80,000 Gold in an Another World for Retirement - Chapter 56
Let’s spread the Othello! Part 3
In the evening, I visited the Bozes’ residence in the capital.
I kept the appointment properly, and after the time of dinner, of course.
When I took the appointment, the Earl said that we should have dinner together, but I’m sorry I will come after dinner to get in with these requests.
It’s also bad to stay for a long night, so I cut to the chase.
Mitsuha: 「Earl-sama, I tried to make this. I want to make money by making it popular …」
A straight ball! It is a relationship between me and Earl-sama, I will go with my real intention.
Earl Bozes: 「What in the world is this?」
Mitsuha: 「It is a game tool. this is how you play it… 」
In my explanation, Earl-sama listening eagerly while nodding as if he was huffing…
Of course Iris-sama, Beatrice-chan, Alexis-sama and Theodore-sama are also listening. You look too serious, Did you think that you cannot play with me if you don’t remember? Yeah, well, that’s right, I guess…
For the time being, I explained Othello and played against Earl-sama.
At first, trying to explain, while playing. 2nd time, is the main battle.
For the 1st match in the main battle, I took it easy and I won with a little difference.
For the 2nd match, I tried seriously, but for some reason Earl won.
3rd match have a taste of my full power, [ununununununu]!
……, what will I do if I get muddy! (……って、私がムキになってどうする！) (TN: a reference?)
As expected of the Earl, you understand the principle …so strong. What will happen if you challenge Sabine-chan.
4th match, gununununununu…….
2 wins and 3 losses…… For novice challengers…….
Suddenly Iris-sama grabbed my shoulder.
Yeah yeah, the next is Iris-sama….
Iris-sama, who was watching firmly at the Earl’s match, was strong from the beginning to the middle.
I try to take a corner, but since I don’t try to take sufficient space for some reason, there is no place I can hit!… I don’t understand it as well.
I was surprised by the fact, that I was supposed to have an overwhelmingly advantages… But it’s gone in the blink of an eye.
N- no way, how good are these people?
Gyā hā! (ぎゃあああ！)
Novice challengers, believe it or not… 1win, 4 losses.
Even if you say that you’ve done it many times, it is a history with my middle school friends after all! It’s a secret society that [plans to conquer the world with Othello] or something…
I don’t really know for sure…
Shiku, shiku……. (TN: crying SFX)
Next up, Beatrice-chan.
Quite a good game.
We fought back and forth.
That’s right, enjoy it like this!
Enjoy it as you can but, it’s 4 wins and 1 loss… in favor of the expert. (TN: lol she calls herself the expert.)
But even with the same 4 to 1, it was cozy match, unlike the match against Iris-sama which is… miserably intense.
Mitsuha: 「And well, that’s it,… it’s just like that…. Also There is another game, called [Shogi], but this has a difficult set of rules, so please keep a good eye on the manual. I’ll come again to do a trial match next time … 」
Earl Bozes: 「Fumu…… It’s quite interesting. So, what should I do?」
As expected, Earl-sama, is a fast talker!
Mitsuha: 「I would like to spread Othello the masses right away, and Shogi is to be introduced first, to the nobility and military personnel. For those who knew the fun of Othello which is easy to play, the Shogi will be quite interesting as well …. Earl-sama would do it in a conspicuous place, and would recommend it to the military, saying that it’s just a good exercise for the military personnel’s head……」
Earl Bozes:「But even if you say that, I can’t do it alone… what about my opponent?」
Mitsuha: 「Well as of now, the King, the Prime Minister and Sabine, at the moment. you can play Shogi with them. Sabine-chan is Currently the strongest in this. Please, be very careful if you are betting something. 」
Earl Bozes: 「Eh….?」
Is the Earl doesn’t like the opponents who have been mentioned?, or is it because Sabine-chan is the strongest among them?……
Mitsuha: 「Since the products will arrive in about 20 days,… please don’t make it too flashy for now, and endorse it little by little. Don’t force it too much, it’s not good. And after 15 ~ 16 days, please strike in front of people and go to the offensive. 」
Earl Bozes: 「Somehow it sounds like a plan for usurpation of the throne … ….」
Mitsuha: 「Hahahaha, the King himself is also a comrade.」
The Earl smiles wryly. Yeah, it is a picture of, [a bitter smile of a shrewd man].
Alexis and Theodore: 「「Ano ~…」」
As I turned around to the source of the voices, Alexis-sama and Theodore-sama with Othello boards.
Mitsuha: 「Ah, it’s gotten late, so I will be heading back. Since I will leave the Othello and shogi behind, please play with Alexis-sama and Theodore-sama. Well then, I will excuse myself. 」
Alexis: 「N- no way … ….」
Theodore: 「You got to be kidding me…」
The two of them are stunned for some reason… I wonder why? Did you want to play with me that much? You can play (with each other) as much as you want from now on. It’s gotten quite late, so I’m going home.
Oh, come to think of it, isn’t Alexis-sama the one who turn into a viscount and became independent?
Will you go home today?
Or is it, because there is no money to prepare your residence here in the capital?, [I wonder if I could live at my parents house in the capital, for the time being]. Life’s hard isn’t it…..
When I say my farewells to Earl-sama and Iris-sama, and tried to return to my shop, they went to the gate and saw me off.
I firmly refuse the Earl’s offer to send me to the shop by carriage,.. and so I went home by walking. Earl-sama also knows that I can escape at the time of emergency, so he cannot be too persistent.
Iris-sama who did not know about it, was dissatisfied with it, but I told nothing because I think that there was a reason for this, because the Earl, who was very over-protective, would say so to me.
… Do you think there was a hidden guard?
The last thing I heard from behind me is [Fine, you win! ]… It was Iris-sama’s voice.
Alright, the plan is working, (kukuku)… Addicted, they’re getting Addicted. (TN: thanks to Med1um-san for making this clear.)
With this condition, let’s go around Adelade-chan’s place, the Lansen’s house, the Pasteur’s house, where I did not go to the party, and the aristocracy, where some good people were.
Because it was said that, you can come over whenever something happened.
Oh, of course, during daytime. Because visiting at night, is something I can only do in the Bozes family.
Also, [good people] means exactly as it is. It doesn’t mean that [good people] are convenient for me! ….well …Maybe.
Oh, and the party I also went to the first, uh-, whoever went out to a girl, that elder sister handed out a girl, not only over there but also to other nobleman parties. (TN: confused? well so do I)
Because it is after the evening, it did not affect my daytime behavior, and it is not much remembered because it is a similar party that does not have a substitute every time.
There are, good people, people with high ability, useful people, and meticulous people, that needs to take notes properly, and then enter them on a personal computer later on.
Oh, [people with high ability] and [useful people] are not the same. It’s completely different.
Some people are useless even if they have the ability, others are very helpful even-though they’re lacking of it. Well, there are dozens of people who don’t have the ability and are also useless. There are few people who have the ability and are useful as well,… It’s true!.
Well, at the very least, it’s enough to say [useful].
Because I am aware of [hard to use, people], there are strangely less complications now.
The territory itself is not attractive at all. On the contrary, it seems that even if they are the third son or the fourth son, they do not want to be a son-in-law. (それどころか、三男坊、四男坊であっても婿入りしたくないというようなところだ。)
Well, I chose that kind of place for myself, to [repel insects].
But then, somehow, there are many people who recommends their own sons. It’s certainly not a [malicious, strange way of engagement], but its still a [strange way of engagement] … ….
I wonder if they realized, that our territory is going to develop in the future.
For the next few days, I went around the aristocracy on the list and lay the groundwork. I also bought another few extra sets Othello and Shogi in Japan, because I ran out.
And then tell everyone how interesting it is……. There was no need to.
Everyone was delighted that I personally came all the way to play and I was excited more by the game. For the next few days, I carried around the Othello game set in search of an opponent, and teach those who are likely to be a good match against me.
16 days after Mitsuha’s visit to Bozes’ capital residence.
There was a small crowd at the Kingdom’s central square.
Resident 1: 「What, what’s that …?」
Resident 2: 「Oh, it’s the, [mercenary girls] they are playing something quite entertaining, its gathering a lot of attention. It’s very easy, it looks interesting, and there is a constant crowd since morning.」
Resident 1: 「Wow …. Let’s go and take a look… A cute girl?」
Resident 3: 「Oh, that’s a lovely girl and also a beautiful girl!」
Resident 4: 「…… I’m going.」
Instead of Sven’s group who were employed in the Viscount territory, the players are the mercenaries who received a nomination request from Mitsuha.
There are several other groups, and they are doing the same thing in various places in the capital. Some of them are also dressed in ordinary clothes like town girls. I asked both men and women, but the ratio of women is higher.
The reason why I made it a nomination request, rather than a general request, is because it is important to look good in order to fortify advertisement.
In addition to Mitsuha’s fame, there were also rumors that Mitsuhha’s request would turn out to be a lucky one, and so few people would refused the nomination request. There were also times when Mitsuha gave priority, to those who were likely to suffer because of less profit.
Sitting on the stone steps, men and women who are excited about the game happily with a lightning corn in one hand. (TN: officially its lightning corn now)
The rumors of that game gradually spread.
In the royal palace, an afternoon meeting has finally came to an end.
When everyone who was in attendance, was about to rise to return to their own residences.
King: 「Anyone wants go for a Shogi or Othello match after this?」
Many lower Nobles: ( ( (Shi ~yougi? Osero? ) ) ) inner thoughts
Everyone is dumbfounded on the sudden words of the King.
At that time.
Earl Bozes: 「Oh, that’s nice! I shall be your opponent!」
Prime Minister:「No, No, the last game was frustrating, me first!」
Earl Lansen: 「I am bringing both game boards. You can do it on two tables! 」
Earl Pasteur: 「What are you carrying that around for?, Earl Bozes is also … …. 」
Suddenly the hall became excited, the King, the Prime Minister, and some Higher aristocrats..
Noble 1: (What is…. What are they talking about?）
Noble 2:(Is this an opportunity to get close relationship to the King and his associates? What is, Shi ~yougi?)
Noble 3: (I don’t understand, what they’re saying!)
The Lower Aristocrats rushed-in and gathered-up information in panic, after the meeting has adjourned.
Rumors of the two game boards spreads like a wild fire.
And then, 4 days later.
Posters were pasted on various parts of the capital.
[ New game equipment, Othello and Shogi are now on sale! ]
[ A tournament Will be held! Win the amazing prizes, dress-up the Princess of Thunder and eat together while patting her head! ]
No, you can’t get multiple prizes for yourself.
It was a despicable scam.
