A young girl in a village without protection - Chapter 99
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
“Lady Sele, here’s a letter from Lord Lucaria.”
Selesina received and opened the letter that Hisui brought to her. It said Lucaria had left the great shrine and was heading here.
Her hand that was holding the letter had odd strain unconsciously.
“Are you all right, Lady Sele?”
“Oh, I’m sorry, sorry. I’m all right. I should be joyful now that the never-bloomed great tree will be gone soon.”
When Selesina tried to be excessively cheerful, Toi jumped onto her lap.
“Eek, Toi! What’re you doing? Are you fawning on me? Umm…, I love to snuggle so much…!”
She was wrapped in Toi’s white fluffy fur by holding him tight. Its softness might far exceed a high-quality down quilt.
She was able to behave as she really was as much as she wanted because there were only Hisui and Toi in her room now.
Hisui shrugged with fondness watching them playing together.
“And what else did the letter say?”
“What? Oh, well… He wants to see the great tree of Selin village after he deals with the never-bloomed great tree.”
“I see… Selin village needs to make arrangements for it.”
It should prepare a guest room for a rest now that it was going to have Lucaria.
Also, she felt the need to tell everyone to see to it that there would be no oversight for a visit of the chief of the great shrine.
While Selesina was making a plan, Hisui muttered with concern, “Are you sure everything is all right…?”
“Frankly speaking, don’t you think the great tree of Selin village is a little peculiar?”
Although she preferred him to put it in a different way…, it certainly might look quite divine compared to other great trees now that he mentioned it.
The great tree of Harmil was fine too, yet a fine tree was enough to describe it.
Selesina’s great tree drew butterflies and special bees called flower bees and were glittering. Furthermore, there appeared recently a spring where fish were swimming.
“……Ha ha ha.”
—-She could only laugh.
She felt like looking away from reality just now.
The only great trees Selesina had ever seen were the one of Harmil that her father had grown, the one of her own, and the one of the great shrine.
While the great tree of the great shrine was mysteriously combined with the place where it stood, it had neither flower bees flying around nor a spring welling up.
“Hmm? Isn’t my great tree perhaps the best in the world?”
“You’re extremely positive, Lady Sele…”
“…Oh! I’m kidding, just kidding.”
It should have come to be known by hearsay everywhere … that her great tree was incredible, to begin with. Supposedly, Lucaria must have already heard about it.
Selesina came to her mansion in Selin village and asked Odette to prepare a guest room.
Since she had bought most necessary things in the Royal capital, it was Odette’s job to receive and arrange what would be delivered and to straighten up. They would be delivered soon.
It wouldn’t be a problem if she got help in case of staff shortage.
“D … do I deserve to prepare a guest room for the chief of the great shrine?”
Odette got more nervous than she did when she went to the great shrine with Soratek as Selesina told her who would use the guest room.
“Don’t worry, he is a kind person.”
“I … I will do my best!” [Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
“I’m counting on you.”
That would do for now in Selin village. Anton whom she told that the chief of the great shrine was coming should let everyone know about it.
When she was thinking about what else she should do—, there was a doorbell sounded by a visitor.
“Maybe the furniture is arriving already?”
“I’ll answer the door right away.”
She heard Odette saying “Oh, Mr. Kelvin,” at the door. It seemed the visitor was Kelvin.
‘Does that mean he needs me?’
She went to the front door and saw two men and a woman beside Kelvin. She had met the two men who worked for Kelvin, but she had never seen the woman before.
Kelvin noticed Selesina and bowed. The other three did the same.
“What’s the matter?”
“The village is peaceful today as usual. I came here to suggest … security guards at your mansion. I chose candidates and came to talk about it.”
Although she had known that her guard and security of her mansion was the issue to be sorted out, she had put it off.
She appreciated Kevin came for the suggestion before she consulted him … which she had been going to do.
“Though this village isn’t dangerous, Lady Selesina is the Lord of the village. I think guard is necessary.”
“I had also thought about having guard … after I settle other matters. Thank you so much, Mr. Kelvin. I’ll have tea served, so please come in.”
“Thank you very much.”
She had Odette make tea and began to talk about it in detail.
She was told that all three candidates here were prominent figures with confidence in their ability. A woman was included in case a guard was needed where a male guard couldn’t accompany.
They introduced themselves briefly one by one.
“I’m Harry. I like Selin village and potato chips so much.”
“I’m Logan. I won’t be any more honored if I can protect Lady Selesina.”
While she was listening to them introduce themselves, she remembered she talked with them when they were walking in the village during their break. Both of them were very polite and told her that they liked potato chips so much.
They would be perfect as security guards at the mansion and as Selesina’s bodyguards.
“I’m Helena and 22 years old. I used to work as a mercenary in the Rouvel Kingdom, but when I was moving to see other countries … I came across Selin village.”
“You came from a neighbor country. However, you know Selin village is small, don’t you?”
Selesina was worried if the new job would be too small for Helena who had been a mercenary.
Nevertheless, Helena shook her head slowly.
“This village is cozy and makes me calm. And the great tree is magnificent. That’s why I applied for Lady Selesina’s guard.”
“Thank you so much.”
Selesina broke into a smile as she heard a compliment on Selin village and the great tree.
“….Then, I assign three of you to guard the mansion in the village and me.”
The three of them saluted in perfect coordination when Selesina declared the official appointment. She imagined they could cooperate well for work with one another.
It was settled that they would guard Selesina in pairs and the other would work as a gatekeeper of her mansion.
Guarding Selesina wasn’t supposed to be such a dangerous job since she would move almost only between Selin village and Harmil or the Royal capital.
‘Besides, the journey has been peaceful so far…’
When they were about to have tea as the meeting was over … there was another visitor. This time, it was Gatz who came in alarm.
“Lady Selesina, we have a problem! A gorgeous carriage is coming to the village!!”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
