Takeo was having a smoke in the backyard.
“I hope I didn’t push my ideas too hard…
I wonder if I’ve been too forward with my words and if anyone has said that you haven’t done it either…
At any rate, I thought I needed to cool down before things got too heated, so I left…
I wondered if it was an unnecessary thing to say, or if I had been too harsh.
Was it really okay for someone like me to say that in the first place?”
Takeo was sighing as these thoughts went round and round in his head.
He heard footsteps coming from behind him.
“Who is it?” When he turned around, he saw Smith.
A subtle silence… Takeo decided to go ahead and take a step forward.
“…Smith, I may have been too harsh earlier.
I’m sorry for being so rude.”
“…No, I’m the one who should apologize.
If it weren’t for those words, I would have continued to misunderstand.”
My grandfather also told me that the reason I can proudly say the name of the Elvis family is because our predecessors thought about the happiness of the people, did it, and left results.
The name of the Elvis family is supported by the people, the soldiers, the civil servants, and many more…
I had forgotten such a natural thing.
…..So, I’m sorry, Takeo-sama.”
“I thought I was doing my best as the next head of the family.
But after hearing Takeo’s words, I realized that in the end, I was only doing my best.
I… I want to have a heart worthy of being the next head of the Elvis family.
I want to protect my people and make them happy…and in turn, make everyone involved with the Elvis family happy.
Of course, I will have to fight against my opponents, but even so, I want to be the kind of leader who can make even my former enemies happy!
So, Takeo-sama, will you lend me your strength?”
Takeo thought for a moment.
“I’m sure Alice and I support you in your endeavors.
If Smith is wrong, we will scold you in our own way.
Of course, if we were wrong, we would want you to scold us.
We’re family, aren’t we?”
“…Yes! Please take care of us from now on!
I’ll go back first.”
Smith thanked him and went back to the guest room.
Takeo was happy to see that.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
It was such a good scene, but…
Takeo moves his eyes to the bushes without moving his face.
You can see arms through the bushes. And there were three different people’s arms…
Takeo sighs in his heart. I’ve seen this before…
So many good-natured people.
“Well… those three…”
A sense of tension drifted from the bushes.
……Takeo chuckled at the goofy response.
“Shouldn’t you come out while I’m laughing?”
The three of them came out from the bushes.
“Oh, you knew, didn’t you?”
“Wouldn’t it have been better to hide somewhere else?”
“But we could have missed it anywhere but here.”
The three of them were not remorseful at all… I mean, a nobleman from the royal capital peeking in?
Takeo wet a towel with ‘aqua’ and handed it to His Majesty and the others.
King Azupal, William, and Layla wipe their hands.
“Well… what do you think?”
“Hmm? Well, it’s good, isn’t it?
It seems that Smith has made up his mind, and I’m looking forward to the future.
Smith’s words, ‘A heart worthy of the head of the family’ are good, and Takeo’s words, ‘We are a family, aren’t we?’ I’ve already recorded them in my book of quotes.”
“What is that? Book of quotes?”
” I’ve been secretly keeping it, and I thought I’d use it someday.”
“Have you ever used it?”
King Azupal laughed. Takeo was dumbfounded.
“It’s just a hobby, isn’t it?”
“Takeo, do you want to be a nobleman?”
“…That was sudden. What’s the matter?”
Takeo’s eyes narrowed as he listened to King Azupal’s question.
“I just want to ask what a normal person would think.”
“I don’t think I’m normal, do you?”
King Azupal made a face that said, ‘Oh, no’.
“I guess you want my opinion?
As an individual, I do not understand both the advantages and disadvantages of being a nobleman.
You can have a noble title, but one has a fiefdom, and the other is in the capital…
I don’t know where the nobles are paid, and what their income from their territories is…
I have no idea.
So I can’t say I want to become a nobleman lightly until I know that.”
“Oh, I see…
Well, I’ll tell you about it in the guest room.
It’s a little chilly here, so I want to move.
Takeo and the three of the king’s family returned to the guest room.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
