Chapter 58: The purpose of Miss Elena
“Oh, but that is…”
Miss Brenda stopped because with her was Lars-sama’s squire Noin.
It seems they are talking, but I feel like I can see the characters “troublesome” on Noin’s face.
“Why is Lars-sama’s servant…involved with Elena-sama?”
Miss Brenda nods at my murmur.
“It doesn’t seem strange to think that way.
Maybe he came for some business…but as a servant, it would be difficult for him to refuse the Duke’s daughter’s request, don’t you think? What shall we do?”
Miss Brenda asks me for confirmation on our next action.
If only Miss Elena and her companions were waiting, we would stand up to them as is.
However, if Lars-sama’s servant is involved, it becomes a bit difficult.
“Could you inform Lars-sama?”
I was called, so as long as I go, Miss Elena will be satisfied.
It seemed to me that the best thing to do was to stall the conversation while waiting for Lars-sama to come.
As for Noin, the servant, I don’t have any authority over him.
That’s why there is a possibility that I can’t escape him smoothly.
Miss Brenda guessed my intention and went to call Lars-sama right away.
And I decided to talk to Miss Elena for a while, and then hide.
After all, if I have time to kill, it is best not to [start talking] with her.
“Not yet?! That nasty woman!”
Miss Elena seems very angry.
“Did you call properly?!”
“I gave instructions to deliver it to the servant without fail, Elena-sama.”
The noble daughter who always waits for the Duke’s daughter to give her a treat with her is answering with a scared look.
Hm … so Miss Elena ordered to deliver the letter after all.
“Did she suspect that it was a fake letter due to the difference in the writing?”
“That’s … “
The noble daughter is teary-eyed.
It seems that she copied Lars-sama’s writing.
The other noble daughters are also exchanging anxious glances.
There are also people with a slightly accusing look at Miss Elena, and even if they follow her orders for the sake of the house or to benefit themselves, Miss Elena’s orders may often be unreasonable.
Still, I’m not sure if it’s okay to feel sympathetic since I’m tricking someone (mainly me) for profit and causing inconvenience to others (like me).
In the meantime, Lars-sama’s servant has a cold expression.
Is it not the first time being tangled up with someone like this, I wonder?
Miss Elena approaches Noin and says,
“I don’t like the idea of putting that outrageous woman by Lars-sama’s side.
And I heard that you’re letting her live in the same mansion?”
(Oh, she already found out)
As expected of the Duke’s daughter, she has sharp ears.
No, if it was her entourage who heard about it, it might be the victory of having a large entourage.
“Don’t you think that the Count Elvasti family, with that woman and her father’s viciousness, is a house with a terrible reputation that even a noble’s servant has heard of? They should be driven out, right now.
Don’t you agree?”
I think this way of speaking is normal as always, but what does Miss Elena want by asking Lars-sama’s servant for agreement?
As I was tilting my head, the continuation entered my ears and I understood Miss Elena’s goal.
“Quietly advise Lars-sama from you.
If you do that, I’m sure Lars-sama will change his mind and be grateful to you.
I’m sure your treatment will also improve.”
It seems that she was trying to get Lars-sama to speak ill of me.
Ultimately, she wants to make Noin her ally and use him as a weapon against me, I wonder.
However, Noin remained silent.
“Why don’t you say something?”
Miss Elena was annoyed by his attitude, but she quickly softened her expression.
“Yes, it’s scary to go against the main family, isn’t it? But it’s okay.
If anything happens and you get reprimanded, you can come to my house.
I’ll prepare better treatment for you.”
As she made the invitation, Miss Elena reached out her hand to Noin.
Noin, still looking troubled, avoided her hand.
I’ve been trained not to touch a lady without a reason.”
“Not to touch?! What do you mean?!”
Miss Elena raised her eyebrows.
Miss Elena always showed sympathy and made subtle advances to servants she liked in order to get them to work in her house.
And she must have been confident in this method.
But it didn’t seem to work on Noin.
He smoothly refused.
“I’m sorry, but I was taught not to touch people without a reason, so please forgive me.”
“Your salary is going up?! Don’t you think about that?!”
Miss Elena seemed to be meeting such a person for the first time.
She had an unbelievable expression, but she opened her eyes wide at Noin’s words.
“Lars-sama is the supreme master.
I don’t know anyone more superior than him, so I don’t think I’m thinking of accepting another master.”
At first glance, it seems like the words of a loyal servant who is infatuated with Lars-sama.
In fact, among Miss Elena’s friends, there were some who were astonished.
But Miss Elena seems to have understood the true meaning.
“I’m not as good as… I’m not as good as Lars-sama? Me, who is named as a candidate for the prince’s engagement!”
Since she had never been told this, Miss Elena waved her hand in frustration.
Noin tilted his head slightly as if to say “Well, I’ll offer one cheek since there’s no choice.”
This is no good.
I panicked and took a few steps towards Miss Elena.
“Well, this is Elena-sama, how are you? I heard that Lars-sama is here, do you know?”
I said that and looked at Miss Elena, who had lowered her hand in panic.
