The Reincarnated Count’s Daughter Is the Strongest as She Is Loved by the Spirits, Though She Is Only Wishing for Regular Romance! - Chapter 15.2
“Are you Diadora? You’re not summoning the spirit beast?”
The spirit beast isn’t for show, you know.
“So, His Highness Jean had time to feed the spirits.”
“Hahaha. That’s right. Thanks to Her Majesty, I was able to have the time to raise my spirits and be like a child. During that time, Her Majesty was supporting the country by herself, or rather, with the General, it’s my turn now to support Her Majesty. Actually, the General already has a spirit beast too.”
“I knew it ?! or that’s what you thought, right ?”
“What the, so you noticed ?”
The General’s arm glowed with red light, and that light transformed into a fiery bird hovering in the sky.
“It’s a phoenix, isn’t it?”
“Even though Her Majesty doesn’t have a spirit beast yet, Jean and I will protect her. For that reason, I wanted to raise them quickly, so I became a little reckless.”
You can’t afford to lose to Velisario, right ?
In order to protect the one he loved, he probably spoke while giving them his magical power until it ran out.
I wonder if he threw up.
He might even have passed out.
It is not blech, but blargh ? (I think she just compares the sound of vomiting to show how bad the General’s feel in the aftermath.)
“…I’m not vomiting.”
“Please wait a moment, Your Highness.”
The Prime Minister stood up, ruining the pleasant atmosphere.
“Lady Ephenia was recognized as empress because His Highness was still young. Now…”
“Neither the prime minister nor his aides have the right to decide who the emperor is. Her Majesty took the necessary steps to become the Empress. She is extremely popular with the people. I won’t let you cause any more problems because of some silly reason like not wanting to listen to a woman’s orders. I demand that Prince Andrew be the Crown Prince.”
The Prime Minister clenched the hand placed on the table and stared at His Highness Jean with a stern expression. Since he refused so clearly, I wonder why he thought he could make him emperor, even though he had already refused.
I’ve become quite suspicious lately. Eleven years ago, it was impossible to proceed with politics by replacing so many people at once, and I wonder if Prince Jean was deliberately showing a feigned interest in order to clean up the opposition that remained. That’s what I’m starting to think.
“There’s one more thing we must discuss here.”
“You may speak, Margrave Velisario.”
“Her Majesty ascended to the throne eleven years ago. The Spirit King’s Forest was cleared ten years ago. I’ve investigated what happened.”
“The development itself was to create a home for people who had fled the war along the border and gathered in the center.”
“Oh, I remember that.”
“Then, who chose that place and promoted its development ? …Thanks to the development of that place, it became easier to travel between the Marquis of Trier and the imperial capital, and now there are many buildings related to the Marquis at that location.”
“…Ah, I understand up to that point as well.”
“I went through the proper procedures to clear that forest, didn’t I?”
Now, only my older brothers are seated in the chair. Especially Big Brother Alan, who was listening to what was being said, but was looking at the general and His Highness Jean’s spirit beasts with a disinterested look on his face. I climbed up on the chair and sat on the seat, holding my knees and watching how things unfold.
“Regarding that, it seems the Chief Mage has something to say.”
The Prime Minister’s expression changed at Father’s words.
“Do you believe what that man said ?!”
“Silence. I’m the one who decides that.”
The Empress’s voice is lower than usual. The General stands like a guardian between the Prime Minister and Her Majesty.
“Before the decision to clear that forest was made, we found a document stating that the forest was the Spirit King’s Forest and reported it to the Prime Minister.”
Hey! An important statement has been made. So you knew about it !
“But the Prime Minister said that the document was incorrect. He claimed that the forest where the Spirit King resides is the one with Aaron’s Falls. Therefore, that area is off-limits as the Emperor’s private land. And he showed us a document as evidence.”
“I don’t remember saying anything like that. Can I see the document?”
“Yes, I can show it to you. I have the original because what I gave you was a magically transcribed copy. At that time, considering the gravity of the content, I recorded the conversation in a magical device.”
“Then why have you kept quiet about it until now?”
“I truly believed that the Forest of Aaron’s Falls was the Spirit King’s forest. I never imagined that the Prime Minister would risk turning the imperial capital into a desert. …Eight days ago, I heard the words of the Water Spirit King. After hearing this, I hurriedly searched for the records, and since I thought there was a risk of being disposed of within the Imperial Palace, I decided to listen to your story today with the cooperation of Margrave Bellisario.”
Well done, Chief Mage ! Just like I thought you’re not just an otaku !
“Big Brother Chris, you knew about it, didn’t you?”
“I organized everything in the eight days since the meeting with the Spirit Kings until today.”
“You should have told me.”
“Have you made up your mind to share this with everyone?”
Ah… I see. I’m starting to have a hard time acting like a four-year-old. If I get involved in this kind of conversation, I’m pretty sure I’ll be found out. Besides, it’s only been five days since coming out to my older brother. Lately, each day has been intense.
“Prime Minister, were you planning to turn the capital into a desert to drag me down from the Emperor’s throne?”
The Prime Minister just laughed, not caring about Her Majesty’s anger.
“His Highness Jean was loved by the spirits. That’s why, after Your Majesty incurred their wrath, Lord Jean, with the Spirit King’s forgiveness, was supposed to become the Emperor. And then the child of Velisario interfered with that!”
(“I see. So, you’re the one who destroyed my forest.”)
A strong wind suddenly blew, the branches and leaves swayed, and the light sparkled. In the forest that had seemed like a movie set just moments ago, the chirping of birds echoed.
(“I won’t give any spirits for your clan. It’s the same for you guys over there too.”)
Right behind Empress Ephenia, the Earth Spirit King was floating in the sky, her beige robes fluttering in the wind. Reaching out to the Prime Minister and his two aides, the small spirit on their shoulders flew in a straight line to the Spirit King.
(“Empress, besides these three, there should be five other people who have lost their spirits. They are the ones who destroyed my forest.”)
“I apologize. It’s all my fault for being incompetent.”
Surrounded by a soft glow, the Spirit King, dressed in a simple gown without any attendants, emitted a power that could be sensed just by being there. Even the Prime Minister, who had tried to manipulate the Spirit King, changed his expression and knelt down.
The Earth Spirit King glanced at me and my two older brothers who were sitting in chairs looking at the adults who were making friends with the ground, and smiled kindly, then closed one eye.
Big Brother Alan, he’s starting to understand how scary women are.
(“What is that apology for ? Is it an apology for involving even the children under our protection, neglecting the spirits, and exploiting them in political struggles ? Or is it an apology for not being able to find those who destroyed the forest ?”)
The Empress, the General, and Prince Jean looked up at the Spirit King with pale faces, then turned their gaze directly to us and hurriedly returned their gaze to the ground with astonished faces when they realized that we were not kneeling. The two Margraves kept their mouths hanging open and looked back and forth between us and the King of Spirits. It was quite a sight. Father, still kneeling, glanced briefly in our direction with a wry smile.
After a pleasant time at Ruri’s invitation, when we were invited to come and play again, s=he said we were already friends, so we didn’t need to kneel. That’s why my older brothers are comfortably sitting in chairs
A daughter favored by the Spirit King. Though they understand she has a supporter, the other party is just a four-year-old. Perhaps they thought as long as she doesn’t do anything objectionable, she can be left alone. They probably never imagined the Spirit King would show its face so easily in front of humans.
“No way. After all, you brought new spirit beasts, didn’t you ? Do you know how delighted Ruri was to see spirit beasts that hadn’t appeared in decades?
And do you know how much the other Spirit Kings envied that?
Prince Jean’s spirit beast was probably born before mine, but it couldn’t bring itself to go to the human dwellings that destroyed the forest, that’s why we only met them today. They seem to think of the spirit beasts as their possessions, but from the perspective of the Spirit King, humans are probably like accessories to the spirit beasts.
(“Knowing the culprits doesn’t change the fact that the forest has been destroyed. The forest around Aaron’s Falls will be our home. To prevent this forest from becoming an isolated island on land, we ask you to connect Aaron with this forest as an apology to us.”)
That’s right. I haven’t mentioned it yet, but Kohaku-sensei’s is to create a path for the spirits that extends from the school forest to Aaron’s Falls. It should be easier to understand if you imagine it to be about the width of the approach to a large shrine, with no path inside and all trees. The point is that they are connected, and it would be fine as long as humans are not allowed inside. But it’s a 20 minute walk on foot. It’s a big undertaking.
“Can we actually plant trees there?”
“The Republic of Pendelus is importing seedlings to stop desertification. They are being grown in Norland territory.”
Huuhh ? Are there seedlings or tree planting in here ?
Once again, my knowledge of the other world proves to be useless, huh?
That’s odd. Isn’t this the place where I can show off my knowledge and be called a reincarnated person?
I only have a track record of popularizing radio calisthenics, right?
(“This forest lacks magical power. During the time it takes for the forest to connect, send people to provide magical power. Once the magical power is enough, the forest will connect faster. Then, I will grant spirits to all of you”)
“Huh? It seems they won’t give us spirits until the path is connected.”
They said they would give us spirits if we promised to connect the path recently. Now, the princes will be without spirits for at least three more years.
(“This time, finding the culprit was your achievement. The Empress owe you a great debt.”)
(“Ah, that’s right. Empress, you need to act fast. The desertification of the Imperial City has already begun.”)
Kohaku-sensei, are you actually furious?
Floating in the air with her legs crossed as if she were sitting on a sofa, she is gracefully fluttering a fan with feathers, which I wonder where she got it from. There’s something about it. The tolerant Earth Spirit King of Mother Earth looked like a demon king.
