The Struggle of a Weak Aristocrat in a Different World C35: The only way to get out of this is through school life!
In the evening, an emergency meeting of the Viscount family was held. Even though it was a meeting, the three participants were Hal, Yulis, and me. After that, those who had no knowledge of political affairs were laughing our heads off, those who had knowledge were turning pale, and Hal seemed to have fainted.
“So, what do you think we should do?”
“Let’s start with an assessment of the situation.”
Yulis answered calmly.
“I said some very profane words, and the three families saw me as an enemy. They’re not going to threaten me with disrespect or anything, are they?”
“Well, Chris-sama’s status is higher than theirs, so they can’t make such accusations.”
“I see. Oh, I forgot about that because the other side was being so obnoxious.”
The other side knows that if I put the disrespect in public, they can denounce it, maybe that’s what they were aiming for.
“Well, that’s just not right. That’s sexual harassment. Even I felt threatened.”
“What are you talking about? Yulis, who has no boobs, can’t possibly feel any danger!”
A moment after I laughed and said that, my side of my head caved in and I fell to the ground.
“Master Chris. What did you say?”
It hurt too much for me to speak properly. Judging by the way my hair is sticking to Yulis’s leg, she must have used a high kick. Seriously, I’ll remember that, bitch! I glared at her in righteous indignation, but when Yulis looked down at me, my thoughts suddenly faded, and I averted my eyes downward.
Yulis said, letting out a sigh.
“Be careful what you say.”
The next time I bring up the subject of Yulis poor breasts, I’m going to die.
“It’s fortunate that we didn’t join any of the factions, as Chris-sama had planned. But it’s going to be tough from now on. Seriously.”
Letting out a sigh, Hal opened his mouth.
“In fact, the three families have recognized you as a crazy viscount. The first action that can be taken against such a viscount is to subdue him by force.”
Yulis replied quietly.
If they make any kind of appropriate accusation, they will attack us as soon as possible. We have to be careful.
“Second, they’ll probably try to get behind your brother or father to start a succession struggle, change the head of the family, and manipulate from behind the scenes.”
“It’s a good thing that your predecessor and Chris-sama’s brothers are not willing to do anything. In case one of the three families threatens us, we’ll secure an escape route from the royal capital.”
“We’ll have to pass through the duchy to get to the capital, can you create an escape route?”
“Leave it to me, Master Chris. I know one route that no one else knows. I’ll make sure to secure it.”
You’re the real Yulis, aren’t you?
“At any rate, in order to get out of this situation, it is important to once again show that you are capable during the short period of time when the royal families are fighting, and also to establish friendly relations with the three families.”
“I guess so. Surprisingly, it’s probably a good thing that it was the children of nobles who came today.”
“Yes. It’s still a relief to know that I have an environment where I can be watched closely to clear my name and make friends.”
“Still, Master Chris. There’s a lot to think about when you’re in close proximity, and it’s incredibly difficult to build a friendship with someone who sees you as an enemy.”
It’s going to be a lot of work. But I have to make up for my mistakes.
“I’m well aware of that. During my time at the academy, I will explore the affairs of the other houses, increase my fame, and establish friendships with all three!”
“I see. Chris-sama. Then I will instruct you thoroughly so that you can increase your fame by the time you enroll in the academy.”
It brings back bad memories of Yulis’s mentoring. I can’t tell you how many times I thought I was dead…But I have to do it.
“Take care of it for me.”
On the contrary, Yulis looked happy and cheerful as she said that.
