Although I Am Supposed to Be the Villainess (Planned), I Just Want to Eat Confectionery – I Will Aim for a Peaceful Life with the Block Skill
Chapter 46: It would be nice if I could become a new friend…
“I have heard various circumstances. It must have been difficult, Linea-sama.”
Brenda looks at me with a sympathetic expression.
I don’t know if that is her true feelings or if she was asked by Lars-sama, but I try to smile.
Lars-sama is trying to make allies for me.
Therefore, since he has prepared people who will understand my circumstances and cooperate with me, I don’t want to oppose his feelings.
I must never show my doubts on my face.
If they also decided to cooperate, they will try to understand me, and if I show a face of distrust at that time, it will be difficult and they will feel resistance.
There is nothing good for either of us.
“But thanks to Lars-sama, I was able to meet good parents. I think I can spend the rest of my life peacefully and quietly now.”
The other two men also relaxed their cheeks with a relieved look at my calm response.
“If anything happens, please tell me, Miss Linea. If there is anything I can do, please let me know and I will lend you my hand as much as you need.”
The blue-haired young man with the proper aristocratic appearance said so.
I have heard the name Einar before.
I think he is the child of the Fogell Marquis family. He is not a relative of the Duke Svald family, but he must have a close relationship with them.
“I look forward to a long relationship with you, Miss Linea. I also like confections, so I would be happy if you could invite me to a tea party sometime.”
The other young man, Kvasir, also responded cheerfully. Moreover, he’s talking about a tea party invitation in such a place…
(Because they are making statements in a situation where they cannot be invited, right?)
Unfortunately, I don’t remember his name. He is at the Academy, so he must be of noble origin, I think.
Should I ask Lars-sama later?
At that point, Brenda responded to the topic of sweets.
“Well, you like confections, don’t you? I’d love to know what you like.”
I can somehow manage the topic of confections .
It would be nice if I could interact with her, who is a collaborator, somewhat cordially.
(It’s okay, it’s okay. Because Lars-sama has gone to so much trouble, at least I should try to respond to that)
Deep down, I’m still scared.
Because I’ve never had a friendly interaction with the students at the Academy. I’m afraid she just decided to cooperate out of a sense of duty to Lars-sama and hates me.
But I can’t keep going like this.
First of all, I need to repay the person standing next to me to Lars-sama.
“Lars-sama, thank you for bringing Asher-sama with me. Even though it was because I was sick, I was worried about returning to school after taking such a long break, so it was very reassuring.”
Lars-sama accepts this with a calm expression.
“I’m glad it was helpful for you. I want you to stay healthy so we can talk about the confections again. See you later.”
Lars-sama waves and heads towards the classroom where their lesson will be held.
“Shall we go too?”
Brenda asks and I smile and nod.
“Yes, let’s do that.”
I move with her towards the hall where the lesson will be held.
It is a spacious hall with beautiful desks and chairs arranged in it.
Desks and chairs with white and green or gold decorative patterns arranged around the distant desk that serves as the lectern.
Etiquette class is a time to review what I have learned from a tutor at home and learn about etiquette in foreign countries.
Occasionally, ambassadors from other countries participate in the Kingdom’s parties, so the class is held to make sure there are no blunders at that time.
But for me, etiquette class is not such a fun thing.
It’s not a problem to practice with a teacher as a partner. I have also studied with a tutor at home (although if Oji-sama hadn’t protested, I might have forgotten about that tutor).
However, when it comes to practicing with someone else for the purpose of practice, I will naturally be alone.
It was always common for me to be laughed at while smirking.
“Would you like to practice with me?”
Brenda immediately approached me with this voice.
Even if it was requested by Lars-sama, I am grateful.
After all, it was very miserable to practice facing the wall alone.
But what will her friends do? I’m sure there was also another young lady who was usually with her… When I turned my gaze around to look for her.
“It’s okay, Linea-sama,” whispered Brenda.
“My friends know that I will be working with Linea-sama. And they are willing to work with the three of us.”
In the direction that she turned her gaze, I saw the three ladies who always teamed up with Brenda facing each other.
Feeling relieved, I became a little sad.
I was really disliked and avoided.
I wondered why Brenda agreed to be associated with me. I wanted to ask.
