Until the Exiled Duke’s Daughter, Wilhelmina, Becomes Happy – Chapter 24

Chapter 24: After Alex-sama transformation

Thus, although the tailored clothes will not be ready for a long time, I also had the everyday clothes re-fitted.

At home, it’s a fashion show in front of just the two of us, me and Senni.

“It’s lovely, Alex-sama.”

“Master, you look good!”

When I say that, Senni also praises Alex-sama and claps her hands.

Alex-sama turned his face away and said, “Boring compliments…”

“No, no, they are not just compliments.”

“That’s right master!”

Well, in reality, there are some compliments involved, but still, there is really a big difference from before.

“You’re so charming, don’t you think so, Alex-sama?”

By cutting his hair short and shaping his eyebrows, his face looks neat and now appears intelligent. The heavy look is now a sophisticated appearance. Also, shaving the lazy beard and face hair has made his complexion look much brighter.

And, previously the fabric on the chest, stomach, and thighs of the clothes he wore sagged, but because it now fits neatly to his body, he doesn’t give a poor impression.

Of course, it’s true that he’s skinny, but I wouldn’t say that he’s skinny to the point where he looks unattractive. It means, he’s the exact opposite of the pear-shaped figure that could symbolize wealth and luxury, and he’s definitely not the inverse triangle shape that could symbolize the strength of knights. I guess it’s just inevitable that his body shape is generally seen as unappealing.

Still, I don’t personally like noblemen who have a protruding lower abdomen despite being young. That’s much better than that.

Alex-sama muttered while blushing.

“Hmm… I guess you’re not as unattractive as you thought.”

“That’s right, that’s right!”

We affirm with all our might. Yes, in these cases, the person in question has to feel good about it. Otherwise, it won’t continue, and there’s no expectation for further improvement.

It’s a happy thing that Alex-sama expressed positive opinions about his appearance and fashion for the first time.

“Although the price is inevitably high, from now on you should have your clothes re-sized every time you buy them.”

“Right, I’ll make sure to be careful from now on.”

After trying on several outfits and looking at himself in the mirror, Alex-sama was satisfied with the result.

His back gradually became more bent because of a bad habit, so he will be careful to pay attention to it.

“But what now? The bosses who told me not to show my eyes might start complaining.”

As Alex-sama expressed his anxiety by placing his hand on his forehead, I will tell him.

“Please say it like this…”

The next day, when he went to the laboratory, he could hear whispers in the distance.

And as soon as I arrived, as expected, I was tangled up with Tobias, the third son of the Count family, a man of forty. He is one of the heads of the Magic Tool Development Department of this laboratory, and has researchers who are attached to him like drum beaters.

He is said to be a man who lives in the Count family’s territory and creates a faction with people from the nearby Baron family.

“What’s wrong, Peltra-kun? Your appearance has changed quite a bit.”

My hair was cut so my face looks better. And because my back is straightening, I could see his thinning hair.

“Good morning, Chief Tobias. I just cut my hair.”

He speaks scornfully while holding his chin with one hand.

“Hmm, but I told you not to show too much of the color of your dirty eyes, right?”

It was a predictable reaction.

I will try to use the words that Wilhelmina told me last night.

“I’m sorry, I was forced to cut my hair by my wife.”

“Haha! Are you lying on your wife’s lap! Oh yeah, oh yeah, you married the daughter of a former Duke!”

Chief Tobias laughs.

His followers also laughed along. One of them continues.

“Did you buy new clothes too?”

“No, it’s the same as always. But, my wife made me take everything to be remade, oh geez, I spent a lot of money.”

The laughter starts again.

I see now.

So you want to see me in trouble because of the arrogance of the former Duke’s daughter. I see, even though they call themselves noble, they’re just simple people.

“I’m a commoner, and it’s hard for me to have the same values…”

As I said, fitting in casually, Chief Tobias and the others seemed to become more cheerful.

“Hahaha, that wicked woman, she must have a high spirit and be difficult!”

I lower my head and stick out my tongue inwardly.
