Chapter 35: Rediscovery of the Main Line
「Being an only child is good for you? ( ´_ゝ`)？」」
While eating strawberry bavarian, Ellen listened unfeelingly.
Yuri had it difficult being compared to his excellent brother and sisters but there was never a time he thought that being an only child was better.
If he was an only child, there would be no one but him who would succeed the throne, just imagining such a heavy responsibility was enough to make him gag.
「N, no, I don’t want to be an only child…」
Yuri told Ellen honestly.
「I knew it ( ´ゝ
Even if there's one thing or another going on, having siblings is still better ( ´_ゝ
Haa, I’m so jealous ( ´ゝ`)」
Ellen said so from the bottom of her heart.
Yuri was somewhat sorry for Ellen.
「A, an older brother or sister is impossible but a younger sister or brother might be possible……」
Yuri gave words of consolation to Ellen in his own way.
Moreover, when he saw the Earl Theodoare, he gave the impression that he was still young.
「Nah ( ´_ゝ
) Ellen's mother passed away when she gave birth to Ellen, and father has no intention of remarrying so it's impossible ( ´_ゝ)」
Ellen lightly talked about something heavy as she stuffed her cheeks with a fresh vegetable sandwich.
「Eh!!? A, t, that, umm, though I was not aware of that, what I said was insensitive…… I apologize…」
Yuri apologized to Ellen upfront.
「Nah. Honestly, I don’t remember anything about mother, but because I still have my father, and everyone in our fief is kind, I wasn’t very lonely or anything like that so it’s alright ( ´ゝ
My father always says 『If we brood too much, Kaasama will beat us up in the netherworld so let's have have fun (σ≧▽≦)σ』 and things like that ( ´_ゝ
I don’t know what world the netherworld is but I don’t want any pain after I die ( ´ゝ`)」
As Ellen said that, she was worried whether the chocolate she thought would keep as a souvenir for a while would last till or if it would melt.
As Yuri was surprised at Ellen’s lightness, he imagined her mother beating up her own husband and child in the netherworld and was strangely convinced that if it was Ellen’s mother, it might be possible.
「Are? I have a feeling that our talk has been derailed again, what were we talking about again? Ahh, right right ( ´_ゝ`)
We were talking about why royalty is so important (°▽°)」
The derailed conversation quickly rediscovered it’s main line.
