Reincarnated Princess Wishes To Avoid Death - Chapter 187
Mia knows that both cake and bread are made from wheat.
Perujin Agricultural Country is a nation located southwest of the Tearmoon Empire. Most of the country’s land is farmland, and most of the people are related to agriculture. As such, many imperial nobles look down on the country. A descendant of serfs, a vassal state of Tearmoon: there are even those who see it that way.
But Mia knows that if the import of agricultural products from Perujin stopped, the empire would be in a in immediate crisis. And when it comes down to it, the most important thing isn’t beautiful silk, glittering jewels, or precious metals. It is the crop that fills the belly.
Yes, I know. That bread and cake are actually made from same wheat!
Therefore, she can’t tell people to eat cake if they don’t have bread. She had done this in the previous timeline, and Ludwig gave her a contemptuous glare. She had learned her lesson and now gave Rania her utmost respect. When it comes to a Perujin Princess, there was no room for rudeness.
“I’m sorry. Princess Mia. I came unannounced…”
“I don’t mind. However, Anne is out now, so I can’t offer you tea…”
“Ah, Mia-neesama, I’ll get her then.”
“Oh, you’re so smart, Bel.”
Seeing the smiling and happy Bel, something clicked in Mia’s mind.
Oh, come to think of it, recently Bel was addicted to sweet hot cocoa. It’s bad for her health if she drinks too much, so Anne stopped her. So, she is planning to use this as a chance to get a cup for herself. What a sneaky little rascal. I wonder who she gets it from…
Despite seeing Bel’s scheme, Mia doesn’t stop her. The reason is very simple. Because she wants one too. The complicity between granddaughter and grandmother was established here!
Bel bowed to Rania and left the room.
“Fufu, she’s cute. Is she your little sister?”
“Yeah, well… that’s how it is. So, what brings you here today?”
Mia pulled a chair for Rania and then she sat on the opposite chair.
Rania sat down on a chair, fell silent for a moment, and then opened her mouth.
“Actually, it’s about my second sister.”
“The second princess?”
Mia tilted her head. Then she slowly starts mumbling in her head.
What was Rania’s older sister’s name? Um, ah, I think it starts with an A… uhmm… Oh!
“Arshia Tafrif Perujin, I believe?”
“Yes. As expected of Princess Mia. I’m honored you know her.”
Rania smiled happily. Mia also has a cheerful smile. The refreshing feeling that she remembered made her smile unintentionally.
Ludwig said to make an effort in remembering things. He’s got a point.
Yes, that effort to remember might help her ward dementia caused by laziness.
“Arshia has studied at St. Noel for six years and acquired specialized knowledge. But Father told her that he wants to marry my sister in order to deepen the relationship with the country that would benefit Perujin.”
“Hmm, I see…”
It’s a common story among nobles and royalty. Considering the future of the country, it was the norm to marry a noble from a better country. At least it’s a more general idea of enriching a nation instead of through individual ability or learning.
Hmm… I can understand what Rania-san’s father is saying.
Mia looks at Rania while sensing signs of trouble.
“So, why did you tell me about your sister?”
“I don’t want to waste my sister’s efforts. Is there anyway you can speak to Rafina and ask her if my sister could somehow work at Saint Noel’s?”
Ah, so this is what it was about…
Mia thinks while snorting. To be honest, the relationship with Rania is something that Mia wants to cherish. So she wants to do what she can. However, it is not a good idea to have the King of Perujin have a bad impression of her because of this.
While listening to Rania-san’s request, I need to think of a way that the Perujin King won’t resent me.
While thinking, Mia folded her arms.
“There is no problem with asking Rafina, but by the way, what did your sister study here?”
“She studied botany.”
“I see. Botany…”
It will be a little later that Mia remembers Rania’s words at that time. A short time later, Bel returns to the room with hot cocoa. Furthermore, shortly after that, an impatient Anne returned with news from the empire, and many things were forgotten, almost.
