The Reincarnated Count’s Daughter Is the Strongest as She Is Loved by the Spirits, Though She Is Only Wishing for Regular Romance! - Chapter 15.1
Chapter 15 : Forest Without Spirits Part 2
“Should I tell the Spirit King about this ?”
“Is it really that easy to meet the Spirit King?”
The Prime Minister and the two aides behind him stared at me with wide eyes and open mouths.
No, I’m the one who was surprised. Didn’t Her Majesty just mention that my brothers and I were invited by the Water Spirit King, right ?
“I see. I didn’t mention it, did I ? I’ve been so busy these past few days that I forgot to get in touch. She is the child who has received the blessing of the Water Spirit King and has the four Spirit Kings stated that they will support her.”
Huh? This is on purpose, isn’t it?
Are the Empress and the Prime Minister possibly engaged in a power struggle?
Since I’m pretending to be a child in front of Father, I don’t know about those details. Well, even if I need that kind of information, Big Brother Chris will tell me. Also, why is Father’s mood plummeting along with Big Brother Chris’s?
“It seems that the people at the Imperial Palace don’t really understand the current situation. Since there are four Spirit Kings, they are not only responsible for the capital but also some of the territories around it. The Marquis of Triel, which is the Prime Minister’s family estate, is next to the imperial capital. If they hear that spirits are unwanted, the Earth Spirit King is likely to keep the spirits in those lands away from humans.”
In response to Father’s words, the Prime Minister and his two aides openly displayed hostility. The other aides had unpleasant expressions from the start, and the magicians, who have visited our castle multiple times, should be aware of the situation.
“So, in other words, the reason spirits have disappeared from this forest is to keep them away from us?”
“Is there a high possibility that the Spirit King is angry?”
“Looks like you’ve forgotten about that, too.”
Once again, Big Brother Chris turned his smiling face towards the prime minister !
A nine year old boy smiles coldly at the Prime Minister of a country. It’s heartbreaking in many ways!
“I hear that places with many spirits will have a good harvest. The Earth Spirit King has declared that this year’s Velisario territory will have a good harvest. Starting next year, many areas will have a good harvest, except for the areas around the capital.”
“Are you saying it’s our fault ?!”
Wha… hold on. This isn’t like you, Big Brother Chris. Why are you getting angry ?
I’m feeling annoyed too. There’s the emperor who uses spirits to fight in a power struggle, and the prime minister who doesn’t seem to care about spirits, they should know the importance of reporting if they are genuinely concerned.
Isn’t this dangerous?
The Imperial princes without spirits and the Velisario children with a complete set of all attributes. An Emperor who has angered the Spirit King, and my dad, who, even through the children, has established a good relationship with the Spirit King.
If the capital turns into a desert because of this, could the country end up splitting into two ?
“What matters more to us than the presence of spirits is the desertification of the capital.”
“Did you hear what I said? If the King of Spirits is so angry that he refuses to have contact with Her Majesty, then desertification would have been decided.”
Finally, Margrave Corquette also joined the war.
“You asked them, the children of Velisario, to bridge the gap between you and the Spirit King in order to apologize for destroying the Spirit King’s forest, and now you say you don’t need the spirits because you have magical tools. How can you say such a thing?”
Here we go. Margrave Nolrand entered the game too. Since I don’t understand political matters, I was watching everyone’s reactions. Doesn’t it seem a bit odd?
When we met the Water Spirit King, the Empress didn’t hesitate to get on her knees and apologize. She even flew to our territory, even though she had to hole up at work. So, why doesn’t he nurture her spirits?
The spirits of the generals have grown quite a bit, almost resembling spirit beasts. Even though they live together, why doesn’t Her Majesty’s spirit grow?
I couldn’t help but be curious, so today, thinking it wouldn’t be a crime, I climbed onto the chair with a bit of effort, leaned forward with my hands on the table, and gazed closely at Her Majesty’s face as she sat almost directly in front of me. The table in the meeting room is quite large, so there’s still a considerable distance between us, though.
“Your Majesty, are you eating?” I asked as innocently as possible.
“Are you not only forgetting to feed the spirits, but have you also forgotten to feed yourself?”
A startled gaze turned toward Her Majesty. My father and Chris exchanged intense glances with each other.
“That’s right. Her Majesty is so busy that she hardly has time to sleep that it makes me worried.” When the general nodded, Her Majesty gave him a troubled look.
“You need to sleep. You’ll collapse if you don’t eat. Is everyone in the court so busy? The Chief Magician should have some free time since he always comes to our place.”
The Chief Magician, in the middle of sipping his tea, burst into laughter.
“That’s strange. I heard Aide Dudley often seen at evening gatherings.”
“The Prime Minister looks healthy too, doesn’t he? Incredibly youthful, almost enviable.”
An explosion of sarcasm from the two margraves. Well, what are they trying to say is, are you pushing the job onto Her Majesty?
Is that how you plan to crush them? That’s so low!
“If you can’t get your own work done, doesn’t that mean you have a problem with your skills as an empress ?”
“I agree. Since statements are not subject to punishment in this setting, let me be clear. Prince Jean has turned sixteen this year. Isn’t it about time she handed over the throne?”
They just casually threw away the topic of spirits, these guys.
“Big Brother Alan, who is Prince Jean?”
“Her Majesty’s younger brother.”
Hey hey hey. Prince Andrew is already ten years old, right?
Come to think of it, hasn’t he been named the Crown Prince?
The eldest son has a higher claim to the throne than the younger brother, right?
Well, in the first place, this isn’t the right setting for such discussions! Don’t drag our family into the chaos, please.
“This is surprising. I didn’t expect you to make such a statement despite your position as an aide. Eleven years ago, it was Her Majesty and the General who protected this country from foreign enemies.”
“Huh? So, were you intentionally pushing your work onto Her Majesty?”
If it won’t be considered a crime, I’ll say it too. After all, I’m just a child, so I don’t understand anything.
“Are the old men bullying Her Majesty?”
Don’t be hurt by that.
“I never expected them to say something like this so easily.”
“I guess they were frustrated too. They couldn’t tolerate me ordering them around when I was as old as their daughter.”
“You’ve heard the story, right ?”
The general and the emperor turned around, and from behind a tree appeared a young man with the same gorgeous red hair as Her Majesty, tied in a bun behind his back. He was slender, tall, and has a gentle nature, and carried on his shoulders a water spirit beast in the form of a seahorse and an earth spirit beast in the form of an owl.
“Your Highness Jean! Did you have a spirit beast ?!”
“Oh. As expected of a person worthy the Emperor’s throne.”
“Weren’t you just saying you don’t need spirits?”
The Prime Minister and his aides gasped at his cold voice and gaze. Jean walked between Her Majesty and the General, placed a hand on Her Majesty’s shoulder, and looked into her face with concern.
“You look pale, Big Sister. Have you lost some weight ? It’s because I left everything to you, thinking it would be noisy with those people when I show up.”
“I’m fine. Don’t worry, Jean.”
Her Majesty placed her hand on the hand on her shoulder. Um, what is this?
Announcing participation in the Margrave’ meeting at the last minute, and now engaging in deception here?
If all goes well, trying to bring the Margraves to your side?
Ugh, I’m out. This has nothing to do with spirits.
