“Well, I guess all the formalities are over now.”
Her Majesty the Queen smiles broadly as she arranges the bundle of papers.
We have moved out of the gazebo and are now in the conference room for the engagement formalities.
Her Majesty the Queen, Rushard-sama, myself, His Majesty, King Gyaron, and my father are with us.
King Gyaron looks older than when I saw him four years ago. He has dark circles under his eyes, and his face is gaunt and thin.
Is it my imagination that His Highness Gyaron’s hair seems to be thinner than when I saw him two years ago?
My father has lost several pounds in the past week. He has been blamed by our relatives for my engagement to Raymond without consulting them, and it has been hard on him.
“I feel safer if it’s well documented like that. It’s not like they’ll understand if I just tell them.”
Her Majesty glares at the King and my father.
They look away from Her Majesty, and their faces turn blue, and they tremble a little.
“Mother, may I tell everyone here about the Kingdom of Skorupion?”
“Yes, now that the problems of Barons Sachs, Thoma, Koch, and Weil have been solved, it’s okay to go public.”
Lovisa-sama has been disowned by the head of the Sachs barony, and Baroness Thoma, Baroness Koch, and Baroness Weil are divorced. They were all sold to a brothel together.
The barons of Sachs, Thoma, Koch, and Weil had substantial debts to the bank. When the bank found out that they had been disowned by the royal family and by the Marquises of Filta, the Dukes of Shutia, and the Dukes of Crepes, the bank stopped lending to them, and they were forced to repay their debts.
The four families went around to their acquaintances and distant relatives to ask for loans, but no one would help them for fear of retaliation from the royal family, the Marquises of Filta, the Dukes of Shutia, and the Dukes of Crepes.
The four families, now in debt and devastated, said, “This is your fault! You didn’t educate your wives properly!” “It was father who asked me to marry her!” Family members swore at each other and blamed each other.
The heads of the four families, who had no means, sold their residences, their household goods, and their lands, paid off their debts, renounced their titles of nobility, and moved at night to the Kingdom of Scorupion.
They give up their titles willingly… Everything went according to Her Majesty’s plan.
The Kingdom of Skorupion is famous for its magical stones. The people of Skorupion have been living in idleness since 30 years ago, when it became possible to extract magic stones.
[Even if we are commoners, if we can marry someone from the Kingdom of Skorupion, we can live a rich life!] They left the Kingdom of Skorupion with a strong desire to live a prosperous life.
The Kingdom of Scorupion certainly became rich 30 years ago when it became possible to obtain magic stones. But they left the troublesome things to the slaves and workers from other countries and started to live a life of leisure.
I don’t think that moving to that country is a happy thing. Besides, the reserves of magic stones are limited…
