Chapter 34: Elmhardt POV│Read translated stories and daily updates at: Awebstories.com
In two days, two days, Charlotte and His Royal Highness Alfred will be married.
By then, we must make Miri Arzel a lady who will not be ashamed to be seen anywhere.
The carriage is already on its way to the Kingdom of Albania, and the clock is ticking.
How could I be so reckless as to discipline her on the way?
Because I can do it!
Isn’t this just like my brother, who has nothing but thoughtless and shallow ideas?
No, I was in the position of a wise general who was eagerly waiting for my brother Leanhardt to make a bad move.
It may be impossible for a normal man, but for a man with a merciless and cold heart like mine, disciplining a single woman is a piece of cake.
I can do it! I can do it! I can do it!!
Believe in yourself; you’ve waited for your chance, even if you’ve had to slurp up the muddy water all this way!
If I can make it through this stage, I have a bright future as a duke waiting for me.
I hold hope for the future in my hands.
Yes, in the palm of my han—.”
“It’s warm to hold your hand like this, Elmhardt-sama.”
Miri reaches out and takes my hand in hers.
—warm and soft.
Why are women’s hands so delicate and fine-grained?
I don’t have sweaty hands, do I? My hands have always been sweaty when I get nervous…
“O-Oh, it’s warm. Miri-san. Ahaha.”
… Huh? No, no, wait. This reaction is…
It’s not! It’s not “Ahaha”! What are you smiling about, me!
I can’t look at Miri’s face! Smiling is even worse…! I can’t smile…smiling makes me feel less dignified.
“Elmhardt-sama, you really must start educating Miri-sama soon, or you will never be able to get back.”
“I know. Anna, do you really think I’m going to fail?”
In a slightly annoyed tone, Anna urges me to discipline Miri.
Anna is supposed to talk to Miri because she is the closest to her age among the duke’s servants, but she doesn’t seem to have the right personality and only talks about business.
My father says he hired her because she’s good at what she does, but I don’t like smart women like her.
“Yes. I’m thinking about it and I’m worried about whether you’ll be able to return to your home country safely.”
“…It’s unnecessary to worry. I’ll do it properly from now on.”
You know, you’re the kind of person who doesn’t hesitate to talk about fears…
She starts studying Albanian next to me because she knows she will have to look for a new job in Albania if I don’t do a good job.
She definitely underestimates me. I should be angry, I—.
If even the servants underestimate you, you will never succeed in getting the dukedom.
But Anna has a good point. If I take Miri as she is to the wedding, I’m doomed.
I’ll make her a perfect lady.
No, wait! What am I saying?
Yes, that’s right. She doesn’t have to be perfect at anything.
It doesn’t matter if it’s just for show, just the basic manners.
Miri spent her life with the Count’s family. Even if she lacks some common sense, she should be able to correct her pretense…
Well, before that, she should learn at least a few greetings in Albanian.
This will not take more than 30 minutes, as long as she can introduce herself.
“Miri Arzel is a delicious sweet potato —(in Albania).”
“No, please listen to me one more time —(in Ezersta). My name is Miri Arsel —(in Albanian).”
“Miri Arzel is a delicious sweet potato —(in Albania).”
Why are you saying words out of your mouth that sound nothing like my pronunciation?!
We’ve been asking and answering this question for more than an hour!
What? Only two days left?
I don’t know if I can do it—.
“I, Anna Williams, was formerly a servant of the duke’s family. —(in Albanian).”
