- Chapter 95 - Final Day of the Flower Festival
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
On the last day of the Flower Festival, the aristocratic gardens were not open to the public. In other words, Cain’s part-time job was up until the day before and that day was his break.
It seemed street stalls were held by the main road.
It was said that the royal palace orchestra dispatched from the royal palace was playing in the largest intersection, and in the other intersections in the city, performances were done by the citizen orchestra that the citizens did as a hobby, a group of aristocrat volunteers who enjoyed music, students who belong to the music club and stayed in the royal capital and the other groups, plus those who wanted to stand out and stepped out, it was very festive and lively.
It seemed that close friends and family members, fiancés, and lovers went out to enjoy eating while walking around, and dancing to music, but Cain didn’t have that kind of close friend yet.
All his classmates were considerate and kind, he talked and ate lunch together with them, but it wasn’t a close enough relationship as to go dancing together during the break.
Maddy, his part-time job friend, and senior seemed to be helping to open a store somewhere that day. Of course, with payment. Cain had heard that he was the son of a Viscount family, but he seemed to somehow profusely save money.
It was the time when he was about to pick up the textbook that was set up at the bookend on the desk so that he could continue studying since the dormitory was quiet.
“Cain! I’ll introduce you to a well paid part-time job!”
Julian came in, shouting this in a loud voice at the same time as he opened the door. Cain frowned as he tried to read his expression, but he could only feel a bad feeling from the way he was grinning with a naughty look on his face.
“I have a bad feeling about this, so I would like to decline if possible.”
“It’s good to seek the favor of the royal family. I’ll give you three large gold coins if you commit the whole day today until evening.”
Three large gold coins were enough for the carriage ride fee to the royal capital of Limuto Break plus the one-way accommodation fee at the transfer point. If he had that much, he can go back to his home at least once in the next long break, and the road to save up the rental fee for the flying dragon could be shortened considerably.
When presented with that amount of money, the bad feeling grew even more. He honestly wanted the money, but Cain was hesitating by fear of wondering what kind of unreasonable thing he would be subjected to.
“What are you planning to have me do with such a large sum of money?”
“Well, it’s just going around the city and enjoying the last day of the flower festival with me for the whole day today.”
“Julian-sama also doesn’t have friends?”
“Don’t say such rude things.”
“Or rather, wouldn’t it be better to invite Shirley Leah-sama? She said that she would go around with her brother, you know. Since it’s family members, suddenly changing the plan won’t be much of a problem. She is your fiancée, after all. “
“I can’t give in from my side. Imagine me going to invite Shirley Leah now, I will definitely be told to say ‘I love you’ 100 times where all the Mitycurian family are. There’s no way I can do that.”
“So pride is getting in the way. What’s the problem, saying ‘I love you’ 100 times?”
“There is no royal family if you take away the pride.”
Cain gave in and nodded to agree to take the part-time job towards Julian, who was being petulant with a strong determination that he will not invite Shirley Leah. It was an exceptional condition to get three large gold coins just by walking together in the city, and he had in his mind that he would forcibly stick them together and come back if they ever met Shirley Leah in the city.
Three large gold coins just by walking around the city. There was indeed no such sweet deal.
“Hahaha. Here, what about fried meatballs skewers? There’s also fried potato dumplings skewer, it’s good if you eat it with the sauce.”
“No, thank you.”
“Don’t be shy, it’s all my treat. Carin.”
“Ha ha ha. A lady shouldn’t click her tongue like that.”
Julian walked in a good mood in the rain of flower petals made from cloth scattered around. The beautiful girl, who was escorted by him with her hands resting gently on his arm, had beautiful golden hair and deep blue eyes like the summer sky.
She raised the corner of her mouth and formed a smile, but her eyes weren’t smiling.
She was dressed in a sky-blue long hem dress and low-heeled boots, and the way she stood as she nestled next to Julian was very lovely. Everyone who passed the girl who was called Carin looked back at her, and when they realized that the one who was walking the beautiful girl around was Julian, they let out a sigh.
“I’ll have my revenge one day.”
“I don’t know what kind of spell that is, but I can tell that you’re complaining, Carin. It’s a part-time job that’s properly paid, so please play your role perfectly.”
“Ha ha ha. Like I said, a lady doesn’t click her tongue.”
Contrary to Cain’s grumpiness, for some reason, Julian was in a good mood. He tried to feed Cain a variety of food, tried to give him gifts, and tried to ask him to dance. Every time he did it, Cain would refuse. He was thinking of eating as much as he could so that Julian would go bankrupt, but the waist of the dress was much tighter than he had expected and it was unlikely that he would be able to eat much so he gave up on the thought.
“Didn’t you say that you were very popular with a lot of ladies? Shouldn’t you just be with someone from those ladies? It’s even possible to bring along a few of the ladies at the same time.”
After all, he did boast that he was not cheating if it was up to three more people. He could walk around with three of the ladies that he liked. Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com
“It’s no good because a fiancée other than Shirley Leah has not been chosen. Imagine me walking around with a specific lady on the last day of the flower festival. People will say things like ‘Is it the first princess consort has been decided?!’, and that girl will also feel like that. I can’t walk around with a girl who I’m not that serious about and just want to have a taste of, on the last day of the flower festival. “
“Is it really something like that? I didn’t think that the last day of the flower festival was that important… But, if it’s like that, wouldn’t it be okay to walk around with male friends? Is it also a day to walk around with family and friends, correct?”
When Cain looked around, he saw people around them – the faces he was familiar with from school were happily buying and eating with a group of boys and girls, a mother who was taking along a young child and watching a clown performing, a father piggybacked his daughter who was trying to grab the scattering flower petals.
“Even if I was walking around with Cain or Gianluca, the girls who saw me would come over saying “My Lord, I came here alone today. Would you like to join me?”. Rejecting an invitation from women is not something I can do.”
“No, just reject their invitation.”
“Plus, imagine Shirley Leah finding out that I’m walking around with another girl. I will be scolded. She will get angry, Shirley Leah will get angry.”
The remark didn’t sound like it would come from someone who said that it wouldn’t be cheating until the other three women were decided. On the contrary, Cain sighed and barely stopped himself from saying – rather than all that, sure enough, it would be better to just invite Shirley Leah from the beginning?.
He was saying that he didn’t want Shirley Leah to know despite him trying to bring in a girl with a big breast into their room when Cain wasn’t around. After he boasted about how he had a lot of invitations from girls at the flower festival to Shirley Leah, then he was saying that he didn’t want to be seen walking around with a girl by Shirley Leah.
Julian seemed to have a lot of contradictions in his behavior because of his curiosity about the opposite sex as an adolescent, and his love for Shirley Leah were all mixed up.
“Why me? Wouldn’t it be better with a close relative from the palace or anyone else? Isn’t it better for the girl to be someone who can be used as an excuse for Shirley Leah-sama later?”
For example, it could have been a relative-like acquaintance, such as a nanny’s daughter or niece, or a young maid or a private tutor. Any woman with the kind of reputation that the female students who were aiming for Julian didn’t know would be fine.
“If it’s a beautiful girl like Carin, there would be no daring person who would get stuck up and interrupt us thinking, “If that’s the girl, I would be better”, right?”
“Is there such a person?”
“The world is more bizarre than you know, Carin.”
Cain had a headache thinking if there was such a person. How daring could a person be, to interrupt the first prince walking with a specific woman thinking that “I am more suitable”.
As Cain and Julian walked side by side, they arrived at the largest intersection in front of the royal palace. The royal palace orchestra dispatched from the royal palace was standing there with the royal castle in the back, playing upbeat songs.
Everyone listened to the music happily, but there was no one who was dancing yet.
“Julian-sama, good timing.”
From the orchestra, a man with a violin in one hand approached them. When he saw Cain, he gave a small nod and said that he was the leader of the orchestra for that day.
“Even if we’re playing a dance song, everyone is hesitating to dance because it’s a performance by the Royal Palace Orchestra. If the first group starts dancing, I think everyone will start dancing. His Royal Highness Prince Julian. First dance, if you would, please.”
Cain frowned so hard that there were wrinkles in between his brows. If they were asking Julian to dance, there was only Cain around to be the dance partner.
“Ha ha ha. Of course, since it is the Flower Festival, it would be boring not to dance, so let’s take the lead so that everyone will dance! Carin, can you dance?”
“Of course, I can dance.”
In the picture book of the girl knight Nina, there was a scene in which Nina becomes the dance partner for a girl who was crying after the boys were being mean and did not dance with her. Naturally, Diana who read it wanted to dance the male part.
And Cain would never not let Diana do what she wanted.
Therefore, Cain, Diana, and Ilvalino, all three of them can dance both the male and female parts.
From the type of escort where he had his hand on Julian’s arm, it changed to the type of escort where he placed his hand on top of Julian’s hand that was held out, and Julian and Cain walked gracefully to the middle of the intersection. Then, they snapped into the position for the dance and waited for the music.
The violin leader raised one hand and signaled the orchestra, hitting the stone paving with his shoes for the countdown.
Tan, Tan, Tan Tan Tan!
Music overflowed from the orchestra. Cain and Julian started dancing to it. At first, he was dancing an elegant dance exactly like a model, but then Julian deliberately took a stride, and Cain forcibly pulled his arm and forced him to turn. At least, they were still holding their position as the separate male and female part, but in the end, they were both boys. It gradually escalated to which they competed to see who would lose, and the turns became bigger and with more momentum, so when they took straight steps, it was so fast as if they were in a foot race. Halfway through, since they pretended to be stepping on each others’ foot and kicking out, then jumping and avoiding it, it became something that may be a waltz, or a tango, or a quick step, or maybe even a Latin dance, it became something nonsensical.
“Julian-sama. I’ve gone through the trouble dancing while putting aside my pride and bearing the embarrassment, but nobody is participating. Now that it comes to this, let’s break up for a moment and forcibly drag the onlookers along the road to the dance.”
“It sounds interesting, but wouldn’t it be just one or two pairs?”
“Dance a little with the person you invited, and then make the same suggestion to that person and break up again.”
“Hmm, I see? But …”
“Then, see you later… Here you go!”
Ignoring Julian who was still saying something, Cain grabbed Julian’s arm and forcibly turned it, throwing him at a person who was standing among the spectators along the road.
Julian swirled around like a town girl who had her sash untied by an evil lord until he reached in front of a spectator and standing there was Shirley Leah who had her hands around her brother’s arm.
