- Chapter 47 - How do we deal with the guns hereafter? That’s right. Let’s talk about the rings... eh? Courtship?
Translator: Darling | Editor: Coming soon…
“What should we do?”
“We cannot really do anything right?”
Takeo told Grandpa Elvis.
“Hmm……there’s nothing we can do.”
“Yes. There’s nothing we can do.”
“Sir Takeo, what can we do?”
“I don’t think that we can do anything right now.
Since it’s a strategic call between two countries, one noble family cannot really interfere.
Moreover, if we make a wrong move, we can be attacked.”
“By the Catalanda Empire?”
“No, by the Azpearl Kingdom.”
Alice and Smith were shocked.
“If it’s taken as a rebellion……then you’ll be beaten up.”
“No way……….how can that be? It’s for the benefit of the kingdom.”
“Even if the Royal family were to understand that, the other nobles may not right?
After all, there are factions that would like to see the Elvis family fall.”
Alice seemed a little sad.
“Besides this is a political conflict…….it’s normal.
That’s why it’s better not to publicly reveal anything right now.
The only thing that you can do is train an experimental group of platoon soldiers in your army.”
“Can that be done?”
“It’s impossible right now.”
Fredrick nodded at Takeo’s words.
“There isn’t sufficient budget………for the purchase of guns and the arrangements of bullets.”
“That’s right. Since we’re making the trench coat, that’ll be difficult.”
“Is that so?”
“Since I explained the benefits of the trench coat, it was somehow adjusted into the budget.
Even if that’s about 20 percent of the price.
We don’t know………what can happen in the future so I’m sure that the budget cannot be substantially expanded.”
“Yes. That’s right.”
“That’s why the study of guns is only my hobby at the moment.
Especially since I cannot use a sword, horse, bow, or magic, I need a weapon to protect myself.”
“Nn? Takeo, you can’t ride a horse?”
“I haven’t even touched it before.”
“Is that so?”
“Yes. In my world, only very rich people ride horses.
However, I think I’ll have to learn how to ride a horse in order to expand my range of movement.
Lady Alice also mentioned that she would help me out.”
“Yes. I’ll teach you strictly.”
Alice said with motivation.
Takeo thought that he didn’t like the ‘strictly’ part.
“So, Sir Takeo decided on that weapon. Then we found the accessory box at the general store.”
“Hm. The one with the ring right?”
Smith was wondering what this was about.
“Yes. We found rings inside the box that Lady Alice found. After trying it on for fun, we couldn’t take it off.
I had also put one on and I couldn’t take it off.
“It’s a pretty big deal.”
“Yes. And after looking at it closely……..we found that it had the Royal crest.”
Smith let out a strange sound.
“Hmm. We’ve sent correspondence to Layla.”
“I……….I see…….hn?………Sir Takeo……….Elder sister………..that hand.”
Alice’s face turned red at Smith’s words as she tried to hide it.
Takeo was confused.
Grandpa Elvis was grinning, Fredrick made a weird expression. Smith was stunned.
“Is that so………elder sister, congratulations.”
Smith said it.
“No !! It’s not like that !?…… We were just playing around………”
“Elder sister, even if it was a joke, you didn’t reject it right??”
Alice’s face was really red and it seemed like she would cry.
‘Ha?’ Takeo thought. It seemed dangerous to ask about it right now.
“Is that so……..somehow elder sister……..seems a little lonely.”
Smith made a boyish face and looked away.
“Sir Takeo, I leave elder sister to you.
Even so, to think that the courting ring has the royal crest………it’s amazing.”
“It’s a lie right…….” Takeo’s face became very pale.
I didn’t know that that finger held that importance……..
Lady Alice is a noble and I’m just a commoner…..it’s too disproportionate.
……I made a mistake.
I might have ruined Lady Alice’s future.
Takeo told Alice with a pale face full of remorse.
“Sir Takeo, why do you make that expression?”
Alice smiled and replied.
“I’m sorry that things turned out……..this way.”
Takeo lowered his head.
“?…….What are you apologizing for?”
“I put it on that finger without thinking……..”
“Sir Takeo…….I also put it on your finger.”
“Even if you say that…….”
“Fufu. It’s fine. It’s really fine.
Are you satisfied now?”
“What do you mean?……. You’re a much nicer girl than I deserve.”
“Fufu. Then it’s fine, right?
That’s how it is Grandfather.”
“Hmm. It seems that both of you have reached an agreement.
However, it’s been only 3 days since Takeo has come………couldn’t you have waited for a little more?”
“I’m really sorry.”
Takeo lowered his head to Grandpa Elvis.
