The Villainess Princess Will Dive into the Labyrinth Again Today – Chapter 51
Chapter 51: The villainess princess protests
A thunderclap resounds with a “dong.”
In the room, with its windows shaking and the lightning illuminating the space, Miliaria sits on a chair, her fan resting on the desk, as she addresses the merchant, Maximilian, who is frightened by the thunder.
“Well, Maximilian. I have several things to discuss with you, but first and foremost, I want you to make me a private carriage.”
Maximilian is taken aback by Miliaria’s request.
“W-What do you mean?”
“Oh? That’s a rude tone to take with me. You heard me, didn’t you? …Didn’t you commercialize my idea without my permission?”
“Uh… well, I had… permission from the queen, who is your guardian.”
“Is that what you’re claiming!”
Certainly, there was nothing more certain than the approval of the queen, Miliaria’s guardian, to give the green light to her impulsive ideas.
Miliaria leaned forward, pressing her forehead with her hand.
“I was foolish to not realize that… Well, it’s a good thing for you. Anyway, I want a carriage. Understood? I want it to have a bathroom, kitchen, and toilet, and the suspension must be top-notch, minimizing any shake while in motion! I won’t compromise on this! You must not overlook this from the start!”
The idea of the suspension was something that Miliaria remembered from another world, and she was driven by a powerful urge to have it included.
Her passion was building, but whether Maximilian would understand her feelings was uncertain.
“…I’m sorry. Can you calm down a bit? I can’t understand anything you’re saying.”
“Of course you do! …That’s why I’ve drawn up plans this time. Don’t worry! We can do anything if you use your connections!”
The plans Miliaria handed over were for a special carriage with a platform modeled after a campervan.
Maximilian received the sketchbook and looked it over, his expression turning blank before he quietly closed it.
Then, he hesitantly asked Miliaria, “Uh… I don’t understand the details, but this is quite large, isn’t it?”
“I’ve put a lot of effort into it, so I think it’s compact considering all the features it has. Don’t you agree?”
“But… I don’t think there’s a horse strong enough to pull this carriage?”
“Fufun… Of course, I’ve taken that into account.”
“…Are you sure?”
“Of course I am. Instead of worrying about trivialities, shouldn’t you be focused on how to fulfill my request perfectly?”
Maximilian was confused by Miliaria’s sharpness, and she raised three fingers in response.
“I’ll let you off the hook of using my idea without my permission. But… the matter of giving me a defective EX potion, that was careless of you.”
She snapped one finger.
Maximilian’s throat made a gulp sound.
“D-Did you use that?”
“Of course I did. I checked it myself and I plan to file a complaint with solid evidence.”
“B-But even if the recovery power of the EX potion is slightly reduced, most humans…”
“Shut up. The problem is that the expiration date had passed and only the minimal effects were available.”
Even a small decrease in effectiveness could be deadly, so Maximilian must take this matter seriously.
“And the matter of the white powder the other day. I forgave you, but… I consider that to be your misbehavior.”
Miliaria snapped her second finger.
Maximilian’s face turned pale.
“Both of these incidents were serious misbehaviors that put lives at risk. On another note, there’s a saying in some countries that even a Buddha’s face can only forgive three times. Even the most forgiving person can only forgive three times. Am I about to snap my last finger?”
“Well, I don’t think that will happen. What do you say, Maximilian?”
Miliaria playfully tickled Maximilian’s nose with her last remaining finger, causing him to shudder.
Miliaria felt like she may have intimidated him a bit too much, but she was merely getting even for nearly losing her life.
“…Yes! I will do my best!”
That’s a good response.
If Maximilian, who has been complying with all of Miliaria’s selfish demands, nods, she can feel relieved that he will deliver something of quality.
“Good. Then I’ll arrange for the horses. I look forward to it, okay?”
“I have a bit of an uneasy feeling… but since it’s for you, Miliaria Ojo-sama, I will look forward to it.”
For some reason, Maximilian’s face was tense despite his high praise, despite being intimidated, but Miliaria was confident that he would meet her expectations.
After that, the preparations were completed after Miliaria handed over the plans.
Preparing for new challenges can be difficult, but by attempting to create advanced things, Miliaria realized something.
The memories in her head were not just her own.
She had a vague feeling of this before, but now she was certain that the memories of multiple people exist within her.
It made her uneasy, but at the same time, she didn’t want to let go, and Miliaria nodded to herself.
