“We’re starting to see it.”
I was lying on the sofa and reading a book when I heard Elena’s voice. I sat up to turn and look at the monitor together.
She’s become skilled in using it.
How adaptable is she~.
When I approached and looked at the monitor, I could see a long city wall, although it was still some distance away.
I don’t know its height and thickness from this distance, but the scale here is higher than the one in the Zerkis territory capital.
As expected of the royal capital!
“Let’s get ready too. Sera, you should change your clothes too, okay?”
Even though we only have a single carriage, we come from an Earl Household.
Up until now, we had free passes to the gates in the cities and villages until now, but it seems that won’t be possible in the royal capital.
Although we don’t have to wait in line like commoners, we need to dress appropriately for our house’s status in order to pass through checkpoints.
By the way, I’m currently wearing a nightgown.
I’ve been wearing a nightgown all this time, but although I’m also a commoner, I’m also a servant of the Earl Household, so it’s the same for me.
You can’t see it from the outside when I’m inside my [Hideout], so it’s okay if I’m dressed comfortably, but…
『Can you hear me?』
Alex’s voice resounded inside the [Hideout] while I was changing clothes.
『Come out in the carriage soon. We are approaching the gate. I can already see the guards.』
“Come on, let’s go.”
The two of them were already dressed properly.
Are they only waiting for me!?
I hurriedly changed my clothes and headed for the door.
It’s a matter of course, but we were able to pass through the gate without incident.
There are some things that are different from others, such as being a little late in the season and having only one carriage, but that’s the extent of it, and it’s not something that can punish us.
Yes, it’s not.
After entering the city, we crossed several blocks, entered the aristocratic district, and headed to our mansion in the royal capital.
Maybe it’s because we’re using the road leading to the aristocratic district, we haven’t had any troubles in particular.
We’ve passed by a noble’s carriage several times, but everything’s really going well.
“What’s wrong with you?”
Seliana spoke to me as if she understood that I was disappointed.
“Hmm~? No, it’s nothing.”
“In the story Sera was recently reading, there is a scene where a noble’s carriage enters the city and has a dispute with a security guard. I’m sure she was expecting that.”
Like the power harassment of nobles…
If it’s the side that’s being harassed, it probably would be disgusting, but right now I’m on the side that’s doing it.
For some reason, I was kind of hoping for it.
“… you’re stupid sometimes.”
Seliana looks at me with dumbfounded eyes.
How should I put it, it seems to be rare to come across a so-called unscrupulous noble in the city or on the road.
Another reason might be that nobles and commoners are able to live separately.
They basically have no chance to interact with each other.
Originally, my status jumped from being an orphan to becoming a servant of the Earl Household.
I don’t have the common sense of either commoners or nobles in this world.
I’ve been in and out of the Adventurer’s Guild, but that place is quite a special place, and I shouldn’t rely on the common sense I learned there.
I’ve read the storybooks brought by Seliana and Elena during our journey, and there are quite a few scenes where nobles and commoners argue.
Well, the main characters who are from the royal family or a higher-ranking noble would come and reprimand those who do that, so it might be that they intentionally let them appear to use them as their stepping stone.
Here in the royal capital, many foreigners live, including those from royalty and nobility.
Ceriana will be taken care of by servants in House Müller’s mansion in the royal capital, so although I don’t think I will be involved, but just in case.
I wanted to see a noble abusing their power, but…
I actually think so, okay?
“There is a grandfather in the mansion in the royal capital. He is not a very strict person, but you shouldn’t do strange things.”
