The Struggle of a Weak Aristocrat in a Different World C10: Flood Control
Chapters 10 and 11 we’re also sponsored by David Adhika. Thank you for your support.
Since then, we have carried out Yulis’s plan. We left the flood control work to Zeon, and asked Hal to organize the cleanup work and the police force.
Things didn’t go well at first, but as the police force strengthened its crackdown, the slums disappeared in no time at all. As they disappeared, Hal and Zion’s workload increased as they had to deal with the growing number of civil servants, making them look like employees of a respectable black company.
The army was also depressed because they had to patrol everywhere and train with Yulis.
In the flood control work, with my magic, I produced a large amount of stone material according to the needed shape and used them to build breakwaters, waterways, and sluice gates.
Since labor costs are so high, we should at least save money on materials. I wonder if this is the best way to use magic…….
And today, I was here to observe the flood control work. There were a lot of sturdy workers carrying and assembling heavy looking stones and wood around the river, which was shining in the sunlight. I called out to a silver haired thin young man with, still innocent-looking who was leading the workers with a piece of paper in his hand that looked like a blueprint that was different in color from the workers
“I’m sorry you had to go into field command Zeon.”
“No, it was a very worthwhile task, and I wanted to lead it to completion myself!”
Zeon was exhausted, but his eyes were shining.
“I see. Well, don’t overdo it. By the way, the breakwaters are magnificent, and the sluice gates are well built.”
“Thank you very much. I’m proud of it, since I’m the only one who can build something like this.”
“That’s impressive. What do you plan to do after this?”
“I’m thinking of building windmills to take advantage of the windy terrain here and make a large-scale reclamation project.”
“Oh, you mean the one I mentioned earlier? Do you think you can actually do it?”
“Yes. Yes, I’m sure I can do it if I put my mind to it.”
It’s amazing that you can really do this. I mean, you’re so talented.
“I’m impressed by Zeon, the Hart family is very talented. I don’t know much about your family, can you tell me about it?”
“Yes. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but the Hart family is a prestigious family that has produced generals and viziers in the past. That’s why we are excellent because we receive a Spartan education from an early age.”
“Wow! But why is Yulis, the daughter of such a family, working for me?”
When I asked, Zion’s face turned bitter and he opened his mouth.
“My sister was the most brilliant of the Hart family, with a talent for martial arts, management, and good looks. She graduated from the academy in the capital at the age of ten, the youngest ever, and was coveted by all the right people…….”
“Because of her character, her engagements and appointments were continuously rejected by people everywhere she went, making them furious or breaking their hearts, and the only one that could accept her character was Viscount Dreschord, who didn’t care much and had no pride.”
