Villainess Is Changing Her Role To A BroCon - Chapter 252
Giovanna sang songs and mumbled aloud what she needed to say the entire walk. Until her voice became completely muffled and she started stuttering. Her voice had become so broken that it no longer sounded like a woman’s.
She found herself in the middle of her father’s trial when she arrived at the courtroom. Her father, who could barely answer any of the questions being asked of him and only remained silent, was bound to be found guilty. That was the atmosphere in the courtroom.
Giovanna rushed into the courtroom. And she shouted.
[Wait! It is I, Giovanni Di Santi, the son who planned the restoration of the ruins of the waterworks! My father was only concerned for me because I was too young!]
She also explained to the audience that she did not make any contract with any demons and that everything she did was the result of her observations and considerations.
As evidence, Giovanna presented the notes and sketches she had written over the years.
She dumped a large number of them on the floor of the courtroom, and hoarsely and raspily explained how she came up with the restoration method while playing at a nearby ruin, how she had tried various methods over the years, and how she had finally succeeded in restoring it after repeated failures and re-dos.
It was natural that the optimistic daughter would be much more articulate than her taciturn father.
Giovanna herself was the most surprised by the applause that erupted when she finished speaking.
And all the common people who filled the auditorium were on the side of the brave son who rushed to protect his father. They were completely enamored with the boy genius, who looked as pretty as a girl (she was a girl) and spoke intelligently and methodically about difficult subjects.
[Give him money! Give him authority! Fix the waterworks and give us water!]
The common people shouted in unison, even though she had no intention of doing so.
This was the moment [inventor Giovanni Di Santi] was born, although he never intended to.
In no time at all, the arrangements were made, and Giovanna was assigned to repair the waterworks of Astra. The young ruler of the city-state of Astra, who was at court, made the decision upon hearing what Giovanna had to say.
Of course, at first, she planned to run away with her father when she saw an opening.
If it was discovered that she was a woman, she would undoubtedly be brought before the Inquisition again, and she would be immediately convicted. In the ancient Astra Empire, the status of women was low, and they had no rights.
In the aftermath of the fall of the empire, women were even more oppressed, and it seems that they could not even learn to read or write. This was also the case in the Roman Empire and medieval Europe in the past. It was even certain that she would be assumed to have borrowed the power of a demon. But…
Soon she was completely devoted to her work as Giovanni.
Talented people are always eager to show off their abilities, right?
[When Giovanna would talk about her ideas, people would just snicker. But when Giovanni Di Santi said something, everyone would listen. He can turn an idea into a reality.]
Everyone would look and move in the direction I pointed to, and together we would create the same thing. And then they will be grateful and moved…
[I couldn’t go back to being Giovanna].
She told the village chief of that time.
Yes, I think I could understand.
