The Tanaka Family Reincarnates - Chapter 13
Chapter 13 – Daily Life
Two days past the tea party, peace returned to the Stuart count family.
Although they are a friendly and gentle family, they rarely invite so many people to the mansion because they did not actively participate in the nobles’ society.
Somehow able to receive a passing mark for their interaction at the tea party from mother, the three siblings are taking care of silkworms in Emma’s shed.
“Silkworm-sama… Is it time to change your type of feed?”
Emma mutters while observing the appearance of the huge larvas before they are cladded in cocoons.
“What is Emma trying to do this time?”
George asks while putting big larvas one by one inside the compartment.
“Hmm, will it not be wonderful if the cocoons can be colored through the feed? Don’t you think?”
The difficulty in Palace’s silk manufacturing process is the coloring process. The water in Palace is not suitable for dying, so we buy water from other territories to dye the silks. But since a large amount of water is needed, the cost of transporting water becomes high.
“It’s very Emma-like to change this part instead of improving the dye.”
George smiles bitterly. It has become easier to communicate with my sister after we remembered our past life memories, but her love for insects continues.
“More than that, George nii-sama, I heard that you have been exchanging letters with Lady Marina.”
(T/N: George nii-sama = Older Brother George. But it’s in a very polite form)
William hatefully says while weighing a huge larva.
“No, no… A letter came, so I just wrote back. That said, there are also letters from ladies other than Lady Marina that came.”
“You’re so popular, big brother. William… your taste in little girls is disgusting.”
“Why so mean to me!”
“Look here. I know you just recall Lady Marina’s appearance!”
“Yes, she is a very cute lolita.”
He doesn’t know when to stop Emma’s gaze full of contempt.
“…! Not that! That extra rare pink hair and eyes, that perfect ringlets hairstyle!”
“If possibly we were reincarnated to an otome game world… doesn’t that mean that kid is the future villainous daughter!”
Certainly, in a reincarnation genre books, ringlet is a hairstyle that suits the villainous daughter very well… But…
“That girl is a good child. Maybe it’s not like that?”
I have the same opinion as George nii-sama.
“Well… anyhow, our whole family reincarnated, and our whole family also doesn’t have any useful knowledge. Even if we were to think of the reason, we wouldn’t find out, right?”
It’s because the Stuart family is more like a cheat than the Tanaka family.
“If we don’t know what will happen, we can only do what we can right now straightforwardly.”
Emma says while thinking about the composition of the new silkworm feed. Emma is happy because her job is the same as her hobby.
It’s a luxury to have a clear interest and having the wealth and talent to do it.
“More than that… George nii-sama, did you find a cat?”
“Ah… about that problem,”
The Tanaka family loves cats, but there are few kinds of animals in this world.
It has been through natural selection since there are monsters.
The only animals that can be seen are horses that are kept as a means of transportation and hunting dogs for hunters. Insects have also evolved its characteristic to protect themselves from monsters.
“There are some, but… the price…”
People have kept cats as a pet from long ago, but it seems that around 100 years ago, the population of cats has decreased sharply due to an infectious disease.
Pets are considered luxury items, and cats all the more because of their small population.
However, the Tanaka family is a family that loves cats.
And we want to give it as a present for our father Leonard, the most cat-loving in our family, ‘s birthday next month no matter what.
I want to get a cat by any means.
Back in those mofu mofu days once again.
(T/N: Mofu mofu = fluffy, petting something soft to the touch e.g. fur, feathers)
