Villainess Is Changing Her Role To A BroCon - Chapter 229
This trip to the mountain temple gave me the opportunity to do a small part of big brother’s work. How else can I help him if I don’t go?
Being someone around my 20s in my previous life, I traveled alone on a whim!
If you add up the life of the young lady Ekaterina, I would be over 30…
Ah… as expected, adding up the numbers would be too painful, so I should stop.
This was not the time for her to say she was lonely, anyway, as she was going out with such a large group.
There were six knights escorting the two carriages in which Ekaterina and Forli were riding. As she recalled, the escort knights who followed Prince Mikhael on his outings were four knights.
In addition, three of Yurinova’s hounds, including the leader, Regina, were following Ekaterina’s carriage.
Of course, Mina, a maid, escort, and combat assistant, was also accompanying them.
Aaron-san was accompanied by only one normal attendant, I think.
Big brother, you worry too much… well, as expected of a siscon, I guess.
I should have asked Aaron-san to join me on the ride. It must be difficult for Forli-san to spend so much time with someone his grandchildren’s age.
But I heard that Aaron-san was single, so I wondered if it would have been too much of a problem for the duchess to spend a lot of time with a single man.
“I’m delighted to have you with us, Sir Forli”
Ekaterina said, and Forli’s face, which was almost tanned to the point of being brown, broke into a smile.
“I am delighted that the Young Lady wishes to learn more about the estate.”
Apparently, Forli did not usually like to travel by carriage, preferring to ride on horseback or on foot. The reason he was riding with Ekaterina this time was because Ekaterina asked him to teach her about the Yurinova territory while they were on the road together.
Forli was an expert on the forests and agriculture of the Yurinova territory, and there was no reason not to make the most of her time with an expert in the field.
“It is very crude to talk about agriculture with a young lady…”
“No! It is the most important thing in the life of the people of Yurinova. Please tell me what you know about it.”
Ekaterina, who had been eager to learn more, took out a notebook and a glass pen.
She began with the main products of the Yurinova territory.
First, timber, represented by the black dragon cedar. Most of the buildings in the imperial capital were built of stone, but actually a lot of timber was used for the interior. Yurinova’s black dragon cedar was the most reliable building material, he explained.
Come to think of it, I have heard stories that at about the same time as the famous fire in the Edo period of the previous century, there was a fire in London so big that most of the city was affected.
I wondered how a stone building could burn, but I was told that wood was actually used as a construction material as well. It seems that the imperial city was the same in that area.
If I recall, the main streets of the imperial capital have broad avenues. There were lanes wide enough for four horse-drawn carriages to pass (four-lane roads), and wide sidewalks on both sides of the streets. This could have been done to prevent flames from spreading in the event of a fire.
The first agricultural product was livestock. Not only meat, but also cheese, butter, and other dairy products were distributed as commodities to the imperial capital.
In Yurinova, odd breeds of sheep and cows were often born. This was probably due to the presence of blood from magical beasts.
While some of them may become rough-tempered and troublesome, others experience positive changes, such as not getting sick at all, having wool that glows faintly, or having medicinal properties in their milk.
