“Sera-kun, is something the matter?”
Riezel, who was enjoying tea with Seliana while Elisha was being treated, seemed to notice me and asked me how I was doing.
I don’t know because I don’t have a mirror, but I’m pretty sure I have an indescribable face.
“No… how should I put it…”
I don’t have the vocabulary to convey this situation elegantly.
What should I do…
She seems to have felt my complexity, Seliana signaled to Riezel with her eyes.
“If you have something, say it without worrying about your words.”
He probably said that because he thought “maybe it has something to do with Elisha?”
It certainly does, but it is a little different.
“This big sister, she’s been fondling my butt for a while now. Can you do something about her?”
The handsome guy was startled.
Next to him, Serena hides her mouth and holds back her laughter.
Elisha’s maids were not fazed at all.
And even in this situation, she does not stop her hand.
I wonder if it’s that fun to rub this thin butt so much?
“No one knows what would happen if I make a mistake, you know~?”
As expected, she probably doesn’t want that to happen, so her hand stopped.
“I was just bored.”
Even after finishing the treatment, for some reason, we didn’t change our posture and she remained on my lap.
Is this allowed…? I mean, for a princess.
This is her answer to Riezel’s question “so, why were you touching her?”
“Well… I did tell her to keep her mouth and eyes shut…”
I can understand what she feels, so I added.
Riezel puts his hand on his forehead.
I can somehow see his standing position, or rather, the power relationship between them.
I guess she had him wrapped around her finger…
Thinking that Seliana would also have him wrapped around her finger, I looked at Riezel-kun with a sympathetic gaze and a maid brought a hand mirror to Elisha.
“Ara! It’s completely different!”
I don’t really know what changed, but it seems that she was satisfied.
Her voice is energetic, and the maids are happy as well.
When I glanced at Riezel, he quickly averted his face.
This guy probably doesn’t understand as well.
“Riezel… Elisha-sama, haven’t you been sleeping lately?”
“This year, two members of the royal family entered the academy, right? There are more people scheduled to attend the founding festival than usual, so there are many things I need to remember. Even though there are already a lot of people wishing to greet me to obtain a connection with Sarion… because of that, I don’t have any time to sleep.”
So she was sleep deprived?
When I glanced at Riezel, he turned away again.
So he really didn’t notice?
“Riezel. Are you okay on your side? You haven’t announced your engagement with Selia, so you have to meet a lot of people as well, right?”
“Merchants from other kingdoms are trying to push their own princesses on me, but others are quiet. They are just waiting to see what my current situation is, after all, their interests are focused on Elder sister’s actions.”
“What about you, Selia? You must have received one or two marriage proposals, haven’t you?”
“I certainly did, but in my case, they would first go to my grandfather and father first…”
“So I’m the only one busy…”
Elisha pouts at the lack of companions, and the two laugh at it.
There seems to be no uneasiness in their future in-laws’ relationship.
By the way, my legs are getting numb. Can you please move?
“I’m sorry about Elder sister today. Sera-kun.”
“No, no. It’s okay.”
In the carriage on the way home, Riezel apologizes for today, but I answered casually.
The wallet hanging around my neck is unusually heavy.
There’s a lot of money in it.
The treatment costs 5 coins as usual, but Riezel, who was satisfied with the results, added 5 more, and Elisha gave me 5 as well.
15 coins in total.
It was worth having my ass rubbed so badly.
I thought that the royal family had a lot of money, being able to pay this amount for a sudden decision, but it seems that each prince and princess is allocated an annual budget, and they use it to support the artists and craftsmen they patronize. It’s also used when inspecting the royal territory, but this year there’s the academy, so they have a lot of excesses.
The surplus is supposed to be returned, so since they still have some, they decided to use it.
That said, I don’t want to get involved with the royal family anymore.
Riezel’s butler Kalos and Elisha’s two maids had items with unknown effects.
And they were keeping an eye on each and every movement I take.
I, naturally, don’t intend to do anything strange, but it’s still exhausting.
Maybe I should relax for a few days?
