Hi there~ Happy New Year! This is a new series I’ll be working on alongside Freeloader Elf as a change of pace and just because it’s cute. Well then, please enjoy!
Chapter 15 The Queen is exhausted
Although it is difficult for Liana to meet with her father and brother because men are forbidden entry in the Queen’s inner palace and her pregnancy being known only by a handful of people in the royal palace, arrangements have been made in order for them to exchange letters in secret, so if Liana wanted to send her father or brother a letter, she need only tell the maid, Elena.
The Queen made plans to meet with Liana’s father and brother privately while she was busy with issues such as diplomacy and cleaning up after the useless king.
She was adjusting the schedule for Liana’s father and brother to meet with the Earl Theodoare of the frontier.
When the Queen asked Liana if there was anything else she wanted to know about, Liana asked what kind of child Ellen was.
Though their marriage was formal, it might have been better to ask her husband, Earl Theodoare, about this but Liana, who experienced the loneliness from losing her mother so soon, was worried about Ellen.
「Ellen… about Ellen. Ellen is a very good girl. However, she’s little, just a little, no…considerably? She is a considerably peculiar child. No, she’s truly a good child. She’s as energetic as they can get. She’s good at exceeding people’s imagination, or rather, should I say her specialty is at exceeding common sense? No, she is truly adorable. Her pitch black hair and eyes sparkle, and when she’s up to some mischief, it sparkles enough that you would mistake her for an angel, no, a devil? No no, she’s really really a good girl. 」
The Queen gradually became incoherent.
This was the first time Liana saw the Queen flustered like this.
Even when the King confessed to assaulting Liana, or when they discovered Liana was pregnant, the Queen was exasperated but she was composed as she dealt with it.
Specializing in exceeding common sense?
While Liana was questioning if it was a special skill, the Queen, who was frantically describing Ellen, was growing weary as she talked.
When Liana saw the Queen fatigued, although she was bewildered, she said,
「That much is enough.」
The Queen looked genuinely relieved.
「I have said various things but Ellen being a good girl is the truth. Well, I think you won’t understand until you meet her. 」
Exhausted, the Queen concluded the talk saying,
「It’s regrettable but there are still official business left that I must attend to, however, I will see you again tomorrow.」
and left the room.
In the end, Liana could not wrap her head around Ellen well but, from the Queen who got completely exhausted explaining, she understood that Ellen was not an ordinary person.
- I’ll shorten this to Earl Theodoare from here on unless necessary. I’m sticking to Theodoare because the katakana was テオドアール ・ Teodoaーru.[↩]
Thanks for reading! I’ll try my best to stay uniform to the previous translations or if I can’t, I’ll give reasons for the change. I won’t make any promises about the release frequency. Though, I really want to get to the cute, funny stuff so I might try to rush translating this while life hasn’t yet threatened me to stop ignoring it. Anyways, once more, Happy New Year!
