Chapter 209 – Kaldia’s Budding Spring 5
He asked a odd question which I didn’t quite understand but it seems like Oscar doesn’t really object to this marriage either .
Well, they live in one of the area under the territory lord’s mansion and don’t really go out into the high society, so noble, lady-like skills will probably not be demanded from Claudia . In fact, if you just think about it in terms of income, she might just be an amazing wife…… Probably .
For now, I guess it is alright to think that there will not be any impediments to the marriage as long as no problems arise from Oscar’s side — the Terejia house
If that is the case, then as I thought, the problem is…
“… . And that’s what she said . . ”
“Ah… . I see…”
When I told him about the condition Claudia spoke about, Oscar wore an indescribable expression .
I was probably making a similar face, as well . If someone were to look at us, they wouldn’t think we are talking about marriage at all .
“A duel… eh . That too against Natarnael-dono who is renowned for his strength among the Imperial Knights . ”
It seems like Claudia’s brother had been promoted to the Imperial Knights before I knew it . He was supposed to be in the military police
“Do you think you have a chance at winning?”
“Impossible . The Imperial Guards are the best among the elites . If it was a death fight, it would’ve been different but when it comes to royal court sword skills, I do not hold a candle against him . ”
Oscar flatly declared . Remembering the blunder at the school last year, I couldn’t help but wear a bitter smile .
But still, this is bad . Who would have thought the biggest obstacle to this marriage would be one of Claudia’s relative, when the
“However, the situations have changed since that promise . How about discussing the matter with Natarnael-dono?”
That is true . Her brother wouldn’t want his sister to be unmarried, now would he?
I nodded and decided to advance this marriage talk seriously .
First, I decided to send a letter to Earl Terejia .
When I handed over the letter to Paulo, who had now become a veteran messenger soldier, and told him to go deliver it to the capital, he looked crestfallen and hung his head .
“Hm? What happened? Did you request for a vacation or something?”
When I was about to go and check whether the
“Ah, no… it’s not like that . Just that there is a girl I am getting along with recently… Ah! No! It’s not like I am neglecting this job for that or anything!”
… . . Looks like there is a person who is enjoying the post-war peace here too . (?)
I should better think about the marriage rush and the surge in birthrate which would accompany that . Well, since the quality of life now is very different from the previous world, I probably don’t need to think about it that deeply… . Probably .
