Until the Exiled Duke’s Daughter, Wilhelmina, Becomes Happy – Chapter 13

Chapter 13: Shopping

I am going out to the town with Alex-sama.

I haven’t walked around this area of the capital before, but it can’t be said to be a particularly safe area. The main street may not be so, but if you look at the back streets, there are drunkards walking around the streets even though it is still daytime, and there are also those who are sleeping on the street.

“Where should we go first?”

“I’d like to see what I’m wearing, but…”

I’m hesitating to say.

“What’s wrong?”

“How should I pay? Actually, I have never touched money before.”

“Not that you don’t have money, but you’ve never touched it?!”

Alex-sama looks surprised. Yes, as far as money is concerned, I have dealt with the numbers on paper such as taxes and budgets of the country and territories, but I have never actually held it in my hand.

I do not have store clerks who tell me the price when I shop, and payment is always billed to my house later, and my butlers manage it.

“Yes. Of course, I don’t have it on hand, so I would like to borrow it. If I exchange the jewelry on the dress I wore yesterday, I think I could buy something like regular clothes?”

Alex-sama suddenly knelt down on the ground.

Oh, my God, he must be exhausted.

“Alex-sama, are you okay?”

“I may not be. You, are you okay?”

“Vilhelmina.”

“Vilhelmina, do you know how much a carrot costs?”

“Fufu, I’m familiar with the national budget and I know the unit price of carrots. The average is about one small gold coin, isn’t it?”

Alex-sama placed his hand on the ground.

Well, it’s hard, maybe he’s dizzy.

“That’s probably the average price per field…”

Oh dear.

“Anyway, with the clothes, I think I can go out and go shopping while Alex-sama is at work.”

“You are not allowed to shop alone until you learn the prices.”

You don’t know how much you’ll be taken advantage of. Alex-sama muttered that as he stood up. Hmm.

“Anyway, let’s buy clothes no matter what. I’ll pay for it.”

Alex-sama glances at the alley and says.

“If you like to take a walk, please just walk along the main street during the day.”

While talking about that, we are at the clothing store. It’s my first time at a commoner’s clothing store, and I don’t even need to call a tailor or have my size taken at the store.

If you buy something called ready-made clothing, you are better off, but basically it seems that it’s common to buy someone else’s used clothes.

I understand used clothing. I also gave away some of my dresses, and I’ve given some to Hilka as well.

When we enter the store, the inside is dim and a large number of clothes are piled up.

“I see, so this is how they sell them.”

Alex-sama stops a female store clerk.

“Get her some clothes. One new piece that’s good enough to go out, and a few old clothes that she can wear around here. Do you also handle underwear and shoes? If not, tell me the location of a recommended store. The budget is…”

After that conversation, he talked to me.

“Can I go to the other store for a minute?”

“Ara, won’t you tell me which suits me the best?”

He frowned deeply.

“Stop it. Do you think I know women’s fashion?

And I need to go shopping, I don’t have much time. I’ll be back soon, so stay in this store.”

Well, he doesn’t seem to pay much attention to his own clothes, and doesn’t seem to be used to women.

Actually, you learn these things by experience, so I would like him to watch, but there are many things to buy, so it can’t be helped.

“Understood.”

Saying that, Alex-sama left for a moment.

The clerk comes over.

“Well, shall we choose some clothes? Your master is quite generous, isn’t he?”

Master…Oh, I am just wearing a servant right now.

Surely, one might mistake him as a wealthy commoner who has hired a maid who works as an all-around maid and has bought clothes as some kind of reward.

This will not do. I must clarify the misunderstanding with Alex-sama.

“No, I am his wife.”

“Whaaat?!”

The salesperson made a strange sound, as if she had swallowed something weird.

For some reason, while we were choosing clothes, she was suppressing her laughter and it was only after Alex-sama returned that I understood the reason.

“Did I keep you waiting?”

“No, it’s okay. I just finished choosing and there’s a tear in this vintage piece of clothing, so I’m getting it fixed.”

The shop clerk cut the thread with scissors, folded the clothing and stacked it, then came over and smacked Alex’s butt hard enough to make a sound.

“Hey, lover. Dressing your wife up as a maid and taking her around, you seem to be enjoying life a lot.”

“You’re wrong!”
