Villainess Is Changing Her Role To A BroCon - Chapter 126
It was said that in a traveling play, there is no such thing as a script. It was common practice to create a play by winging it to the situation, ad hoc.
Graham, who had been trained there, was good at dealing with sudden situations and putting difficult-to-deal-with-people in their places. Other nobles even envied my grandfather for his tactful and loyal servant. Whenever this happened, my grandfather would often in private applaud with amusement.
[You’re a great actor. It’s such a great performance that no one would have known it was you on stage.] (Sergei)
A normal person would have said that he was better suited to be a servant than an actor, and that he was a good servant. That would have been true, too.
But Grandfather called him a great actor.
Duke Yurinova. The only person of higher rank than him was the royal family, and he had said this to a mere traveler who was willing to give his life for the Duke Sergei, or so Graham thought.
In the Imperial Kingdom, high-ranking female servants were often noblemen, but this was usually just a way to establish a relationship with a high-ranking nobleman before marrying off. Male servants, on the other hand, are professionals and their identity is not required. However, it is not normal for a traveling actor to serve so close to a Duke.
Whenever my grandfather was asked about Graham’s origins, he would say that he was a guardian spirit who had been by his side before he knew it.
So, without being questioned about his status, Graham went from servant to chamberlain, and from chamberlain to Personal Butler. He was able to rise to one of the highest positions in service to the Duke’s family.
“All these years, Lord Sergei was my only audience.” (Graham)
Alexei was unaware of Graham’s past. Grandfather did not inform his earnest grandson.
But Graham had personally revealed it to Ekaterina himself.
“The Young Lady is much like Lord Sergei. Like him, she has a somewhat free spirit.” (Graham)
…I’m really sorry for being a fraud when you say something like that to praise me.
Grandfather was a wonderful man, and I am glad to hear that I resemble him.
Thank you, Graham-san.
I think you are indeed a great actor that Grandfather cherished the most.
Later, Kimberly-san, the treasurer, quietly told me that most of Yes Trio’s claims (i.e., the right to collect debts) on the family home had been paid by the Yurinova Household.
He told me that he had arranged for his family to inform the three of them about it, so they wouldn’t have to bother about it anymore.
Well, it’s not like we forced them to take on a debt, rather we were able to consolidate the debt and the interest rate went down significantly, so it’s not a bad thing for them.
But still…our Yurinova House is amazing.
But I guess they still won’t learn their lesson. I thought to myself.
3rd Person POV
“Young Lady, welcome.” (Rev)
The day after the short party with her classmates. Ekaterina smiled at the glassmaker, Rev, who greeted her happily at the Murano Workshop, which she visited again by carriage.
“Good day, Rev, I’m sorry to have startled you with such a short notice.” (Ekaterina)
“No way! Thank you so much for listening to my insane request so quickly. I can’t believe that this workshop is no longer for sale to be disposed of, and I’m so happy to be able to once again light up the master’s furnace.” (Rev)
Yes. The purchase of the workshop was already completed.
It was the end of last week when Ekaterina approached Alexei about buying Murano Workshop. Halil, the commercial manager, who was assigned by Alexei to arrange the purchase, apparently made the arrangements almost immediately after that.
