Reincarnated Princess Wishes To Avoid Death - Chapter 29
T/L: Pawprint Translations
[I think droping something might be a good idea.]
Anne’s sudden words made Mia blink her eyes.
Mia leans her head a little, wondering what on earth the girl is saying. But Anne continues with a confident expression, as if she knows the truths of the world.
[Listen, Mia-sama. For people to get to know each other, it is important to have a natural reason.]
[Yes, I can see that, but…]
Surely, it is hard to reach out to someone who isn’t an acquaintance. It takes a lot of courage.
It is pretty much impossible for someone as coward as Mia.
In addition, when it comes to inviting someone to dance, there is another problem. Usually girls don’t invite boys to dance.
According to aristocracy common sense, the girls are the ones being invited and the boys are the ones who make an effort to invite the girls.
If a girl were to ask a boy out, I bad rumor might start stating said girl is shameless or even worse.
As such, in order to be invited to dance, Mia first needs to create an encounter that feels natural, get to know the person and become approachable.
Of course, it is not impossible to be invited to dance by a complete stranger.
It is not uncommon for boys to invite someone to dance without making an arrangement beforehand. However, the title of Imperial Princess it too intimidating for that to happen.
In the first place, Mia only started to be called saint and wisdom recently. It is something only neighboring countries with a good information network know.
Before that, she was known as a selfish and arrogant princess, and no one would like to talk to such a person.
Therefore, while she has time, Mia has to show her appeal and that she isn’t scary.
…. It’s very tough.
[So, if you drop something in a natural manner in front of the gentleman you want to approach. What Mia-sama thinks is going to happen?]
[I see. If I drop something in front of him, it would be natural for him to pick it up.]
[Exactly! And while thanking him, Mia-sama can naturally talk about the dance party. And if he hasn’t made an appointment yet….]
[Thanks to the conversation opportunity, he can invite me in a natural way. That is a perfect way of doing it.]
Mia was deeply impressed by her trusted retainer’s plan.
She never thought Anne had the ability to devise such meticulous strategy. It was like meeting the commander strategist who plots the battle strategy for the empire’s army. That is how much Mia was impressed.
[If the other party is too dense, Mia-sama can invite him as a thank you for what happed before.]
Indeed, while it is considered taboo for girls to invite boys. If it is out of gratitude for something else, it wouldn’t be considered shameless.
Giving a present for no reason is considered a cheap attempt to buy favor. But if it is a thank you gift, it would be stingy not to give it.
[And that is not all. Depending on what Mia-sama drops, it is possible to show off your good taste and feminility. I recommend a nice handkerchief.]
[That is wonderful, Anne….]
Mia was applauding.
She really liked Anne’s suggestion. The more she listened to it, the more she undertood the perfection of the “drop something” strategy.
……….Mia didn’t even realize, the whole strategy was a situation taken directly from one of Anne’s sister’s story.
Well, that is not too surprising.
The story in question was written at the beginning of Elise’s writing career. Long before the story Mia was reading. That is why the situation is so rich in dreams and delusions from a young girl……
Neither Mia nor Anne noticed this fact.
The two novice in romance can’t tell the difference between a novel and reality.
[Now then, lets start.]
Mia snorts, and after calming herself, prepares to start the operation.
