Villainess Is Changing Her Role To A BroCon - Chapter 204
–Basically, one should not approach a person of a higher status than oneself. One should wait for the other person to speak to them.
When I first learned of this etiquette, I was secretly thinking, “Is this Versailles?” But now I understand it.
I see… it was necessary! If this group of people talked to me, all hell would break loose. I would feel in danger.
It was just courtesy, not a rule, and if it was someone close to us, it would be fine, or it could vary from time to time.
In this situation, if someone spoke to us without our permission, his reputation in the social world would be ruined at that moment.
This etiquette was formed for a proper reason, not for showing off the high ranking of an aristocrat. In my previous life, I once laughed when I heard that there was an iron discipline in waiting to enter and leave a girls’ revue, but sorry, it was really something important.
The high nobility, on the other hand, would use this etiquette not for simple social ranking, but to establish a system that they desired.
Alexei called, and the people surrounding the Duke and his sister immediately reacted, clearing the way for Viscount Novak, a close aide to Duke Yurinova.
Novak appeared, escorting his wife and bowed to Alexei.
“Once again, congratulations, Your Excellency.”
“Now that you mention it, I guess it’s a little late for that.”
Alexei huffed. He was the closest person to him and had been by his side every day since he took over the title, so his words made perfect sense.
And these words also revealed how close Novak was to Duke Yurinova, who was still relatively unknown because Alexei was a student at the Academy of Magic, but from now on, people would flock around Novak and ask him to be their intermediary to the Duke.
The power structure of Yurinova was steadily being reshaped.
When Alexandre was the duke, it was probably Count Novadine who was in this position. The man must have savored the flavor that came from it to the fullest.
Where and with what thoughts could he be looking at the people who flocked to the new power?
He was hidden from view by the people around him, so we could not see him.
He was certainly not a man who would back down.
Despite the envy of those around them, Alexei and Ekaterina had a pleasant chat with the Novak family.
Andrei, the viscounty’s heir apparent, was a handsome, dark-haired man with strong eyes who looked much like his father did in his youth. He was currently in charge of most of the management of the Viscount’s estate, and he would eventually join Alexei’s entourage alongside his father.
He possessed magical powers that met the criteria for admission to the magic academy, and spoke fondly of his memories of his time at the academy.
And Novak’s wife, the Viscountess, whose name was Adelina, did not meet Ekaterina for the first time. In fact, they had seen each other every day since they came to the dukedom.
“Young Lady, that dance you just did was brilliant.”
Mrs. Adelina said to Ekaterina with a warm smile.
“It was all thanks to your guidance, madam. Thank you.”
Yes, Adelina was Ekaterina’s dance teacher at the Duke’s estate.
In contrast to the strong, austere Novak, she had a soft smile. She had pale wisteria hair and wisteria eyes, and although she was not the most beautiful woman, she had an air of attractiveness about her. She said that she had been good at dancing since she was young, and that she first met Novak, who was called Young Master Liss Kurtz, as a young child. When she danced with him at a ball at the suggestion of her grandfather, Sergei, she liked the way he led the dance.
According to an old story Adelina told between lessons, at that time, she was criticized by others as a foolish girl who was only attracted to a beautiful man’s face.
The reason was because Boris Novak had almost no magic power.
