The dormitory of the Royal Aristocratic Academy of Siriyum which was the study destination did not seem to have a large room, so only a small luggage can be carried.
Items that were daily necessities were already prepared in the dormitory, so only a few personal items can be brought.
A carriage loaded with Cain’s uniform and casual clothes, hobby-related tools, and study tools were parked in front of the Elgrandark family’s house entrance.
In front of the entrance, there were all the servants with Dismiya, Elysse, Diana, and Ilvalino. This was for Cain’s send off.
“Pay attention to your conduct as if you are the representative of the Kingdom of Limuto Break. Strive to make a lot of friends to be the diplomatic bridge in the future.”
“It seems that the country there is colder in the winter. Take care of your health and work hard.”
Dismiya and Elysse hugged Cain in turn while giving encouragement.
Cain also put his hand around their waist and hugged back.
“Diana. I will write letters. I will come back every vacation. Please stay healthy and cheerful.”
“Older brother. I will reply to your letters. If your letter is late, I will send out a letter. Please bring back a lot of souvenirs.”
After exchanging words, Cain hugged Diana tightly and while stroking her hair, he buried his nose on top of her head and sniffed her smell.
Taking his arm off Diana, Cain looked for Ilvalino with his eyes. When their eyes met, Ilvalino nodded slowly. Cain also nodded a little, and he took a step back and stood in front of the carriage.
“Then, Father, Mother, Diana, I’m off. Everyone, please take care of my family.”
Cain boarded the carriage after showing his gratitude in a polite manner.
After him, Parepantle got in, and when the door closed, the carriage slowly started to move.
Cain clung to the window, gave a big wave with his hand to Diana, who was seeing him off. The knights on guard waved to him as they left the gate.
The knights of the territory have completely changed, and they are the knights who came after Cain and Diana began to act like a lady and gentleman. Every day, they watched his morning and evening run, but he never gave them a high five.
As they began to drive down the royal capital’s city road, Cain sat deep in the seat away from the window. Parepantle sat in the seat diagonally opposite of him,
No matter how independent he was, Cain was only 12 years old. It was a trip of 3 days from there to the border, and 4 days from the border to Siriyum royal capital. Parepantle was supposed to accompany him as his guardian.
“7 days in total. Because it’s a neighboring country so it’s really far, isn’t it?”
7 days from his house to the royal capital of the neighboring country. 14 days for the round trip. He won’t be able to come home with only two days off on the weekend. Cain muttered while thinking that it would be great if transfer magic can be used more easily to go further.
“It is the number of days when using horse-drawn carriage with lodging in safe post towns. For example, if you continue to run day and night while using and changing fast horses, it is possible to shorten the trip to about 3 days for one way.”
Picking up on Cain’s muttering, Parepantle said that. 3 days for one way. Continuing to run day and night meant riding the horse for two days all through the night. It was quite a difficult trip.
“Even so, the round trip is 6 days.”
“If you have a week off, you can spend a day in the Elgrandark mansion.”
“When we get there, I’ll check and confirm the arrangement for holidays and the likes with the calendar.”
“That would be best.”
Parepantle nodded slowly.
When they reached the border, Parepantle presented the family emblem that he had kept in custody from Dismiya and Cain’s study certification, and he filled up the necessary documents. Cain, who was by his side, asked the border officer about the things that were necessary in order to get in and out of the country. Procedures and documents for temporary return while studying abroad, how to send letters across the borders and how long it will take, and other questions.
Cain greeted him politely, and when he tilted his head and smiled cheerfully, the officer looked pleased and kindly answered to anything.
When they crossed the border, the words that were being used in the post town were already different. Parepantle used his fluency in Rium language and arranged accommodation and meals without any problems.
“How many languages can Parepantle speak?”
“I can speak all the languages of the countries adjacent to the Kingdom of Limuto Break.”
“Amazing. Isn’t it better for you to work at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs at the Royal palace instead of being a butler to an aristocrat family?”
“Only aristocrats can have employment in the royal palace. Now I have received the name of the Parepantle family but I was originally a commoner.”
Cain’s eyes widened at Parepantle’s confession. It was the first time he had heard of the story. The Parepantle family was a Marquis family. Cain remembered that although they didn’t have territories, they were a wealthy family that was managing several jewelry stores in the royal capital. The accessory workshop where Serenosta lived and worked was also a subcontractor of the jewelry store managed by the Parepantle family
“Parepantle’s etiquette is perfect. Even the way you work, you’re always ahead and do everything proactively, now Father wouldn’t be able to work without Parepantle, isn’t it?”
Cain wondered if Dismiya would be in trouble since he had lent Parepantle to Cain for half a month.
“Even looking like that, Master is someone who can do work properly. He does have a stubborn streak though.” [Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
Parepantle who laughed softly and hid his mouth behind his hand. He seemed to be recalling something and laughing about it
“I was picked up by Master. I was given a chance to learn about many things, I am now where I am thanks to Master. Master noticed that there are many things that I cannot help with my status as a commoner, so Master helped to arrange for my adoption into the Parepantle family.”
However, I myself have never met the Parepantle family, continued Parepantle. If the commoners couldn’t get the job of serving the Royal Palace, then there were probably restrictions for assisting Dismiya who was going out to the Royal Palace. In order to take Parepantle to the Royal palace, Dismiya attached the status of a member of the Marquis family to Parepantle.
“There is a saying that ‘A law is law, however undesirable it may be’.”
Cain looked straight at Parepantle and crafted his sentences.
“It doesn’t make sense, and it’s only useful to some people, it’s full of loopholes … Even if it’s a bad law, you have to follow it as long as it’s the law. Father must have thought that if commoners can’t work in the Royal Palace, then the solution is to make you into an aristocrat. This is indeed another way to follow the law. “
“Yes, that is right.”
“As long as you have the right status, even if the very person does not change at all is fine, this does not make sense.”
“Because the meaning of having the right status is having a backing. Perhaps it’s proof that one’s character is guaranteed?”
“It means it has nothing to do with the person’s capability. But it doesn’t mean that you don’t have to follow it because it’s a meaningless law. Whether the law makes sense or not, it depends on one’s position, time, and one’s very own sense. It is like me and Parepantle now.”
“Yes, that is indeed true.”
“That’s what ‘A law is law; however undesirable it may be’ means. … But I want to take Ilvalino as Ilvalino. Even if he’s an orphan. Even if he’s a commoner, my Illivalino is this exceptional – is what I want to show others while having him help with my work.”
Parepantle recalled that Cain said he would not join the Knights or the Mage Corps, even if he was praised for his swordsmanship and his magical power.
“So, you are saying that you will become an official at the Ministry of Justice?”
“Yes. It was against my will, but since I’m going to the neighboring country, I will study the law of the neighboring country.”
Cain was saying that he would make changes starting from the law. How old was Cain when he said that he would work at the Ministry of Justice? Dismiya, Elysse, and even Parepantle only thought that he had said it as, “Following his father’s footsteps.” Under the current system, unless one were aristocrats, they can’t be officials of the Ministry of Justice who work at the Royal Palace. Furthermore, in order to become a member of the Senate, he must succeed the Elgrandark family.
If it was Cain who was talented, even if he ran away from home, or even if he was disowned by Dismiya, he could still do anything, and even then, he could watch over Diana as a commoner.
But that wouldn’t make Cain’s true wish come true. Even if he was separated from Diana for 6 years, he had to be an aristocrat until he could achieve this.
“Cain-sama. It seems that the Siriyum Aristocratic School has an academic acceleration system. Because I didn’t have enough time, I couldn’t check about the application method and requirement, but if it’s about needing to prove that you have already achieved the appropriate knowledge, I think that it would be easy if it was Cain-sama.”
“Although it will be expensive, it seems that there is a means of transportation using flying dragons in the neighboring country. I don’t know if the border can be crossed from the sky, but it seems that a trip of 10 days by carriage can be done in half a day. Why don’t you check it out when you have settled in?”
Parepantle had shown me a way to return home in less than 6 years. He had also given me hope that I might be able to go home on a weekend break which was only 2 days off.
Cain stared at the middle-aged man sitting opposite him with a complicated face, wondering whether he should be happy or suspicious of Parepantle who was supposed to be on his father Dismiya’s side.
“Dismiya-sama is a straightforward, honest and stubborn person. When his father was alive, he was raised to be strict. He is a person who doesn’t even think about changing the rules. Even for me gaining the title of Marquis family through adoption, because it was an underhanded trick, he had done it while feeling very stressed and sick to his stomach. There may be some things that do not match with Cain-sama’s young sense though… Even in this matter, it is not about estranging Cain-sama.”
“I know, Parepantle.”
“However, for me, I feel that six years is too long. It may be effective to keep a little distance, but if you put too much time in between, more distance will be created in between one another.”
We are waiting for your quick return, said Parepantle and smiled.
After that, when they arrived at the royal capital of the Kingdom of Siriyum, they quickly finished the admission and dormitory procedures, hired a local carrier, and quickly finished with carrying the luggage. Parepantle was competent.
“Then, I will be taking my leave. Please take care of your health.”
“Thank you, Parepantle.”
Cain, who was seeing Parepantle off into the carriage, stopped when he was about to close the door. He leaned in with one of his feet into the carriage and looked up to Parepantle.
“Please take care of Ilvalino.”
Parepantle smiled gently and nodded slowly.
“I will show you and raise him to be the best butler.”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
