Chapter 24: Caliber and Inn
Normally, a noble has a mansion in the Royal Capital but due to Will’s weak constitution, he skips social gatherings.
「Isn’t it useless to spend on maintenance costs if the mansion in the Royal
Capital is not being used？( ´_ゝ`)？」
For reasons unlikely of a noble, Will sold his capital mansion a few years ago.
So when he had business in the Royal Capital, he would usually stay at an inn with his attendants.
In the end, it’s been decided that they would stay in a guest room in the Royal Palace so Will went to the inn to pick up Ellen and their attendants.
「Really. Ellen’s caliber was too great that a normal inn wouldn’t accept her ( ´_ゝ`) But since the Royal Palace is spacious, I wonder if it would work out somehow. ( ´_ゝ`)」
Will said that to the Queen after returning to the Royal Palace.
The Queen had a bad feeling regarding Will’s remark but she decided not to think too deeply on it.
Quite frankly, Will was disappointing as a noble in various ways but because she knew him in her childhood where she was still a Queen candidate, when the Queen who bears various heavy responsibilities talks to the excessively simple Will, her heart would lighten mysteriously.
Her conversations with Will were trivial but they were precious to her.
Although Ellen was even more disappointing than Will in various ways as a noble, the Queen secretly hoped that Ellen would be a beneficial existence to Yuri, just like how Will is to her.
The conclusion was that although the fortress around Yuri’s heart was destroyed because of Ellen, his heart had also collapsed.
