The Struggle of a Weak Aristocrat in a Different World C75

The Struggle of a Weak Aristocrat in a Different World C75: Negotiating with Alice (1)


After that, Claire reminded me, “Another time, another time, another time!” three times before we parted, and I arrived in front of the inn we had agreed to stay at.

The inn was a beautiful white stone structure, stunningly large. The light pouring out of the windows illuminated the pale blue-purple world created by the never-ending sun like a large street lamp.

It’s really here……From the looks of it, it seems that only the wealthy are allowed to use it, so I shy away and stand there. People passing by on the street looked at me as they walked away, wondering if something was wrong.

Embarrassed by the curious stares I was receiving, I walked towards the inn.

At that moment, a door opens, flooding the room with dazzling light. Alice came out of the open door wearing a uniform, lagging behind the light. She looked around suspiciously, and then stopped moving her head.

“Chris! You’re late!”

Alice accused me in a voice filled with anger.

Oh, thank God. I hadn’t made a mistake. Even though I was being criticized by Alice, I felt better because I was allowed to enter such a luxurious place.

“Oh. Sorry. It’s okay if I come in here, right?”

I asked to make sure she was okay.

“What are you talking about? You’re going to run away again⁉”

Alice then shouted loudly and approached me. People who were walking along the street turned to me and stopped when they heard Alice’s voice.

“What’s this, a lovers’ quarrel?”

“What’s she so angry about?”

“Who is that guy?”

I start to hear voices everywhere.

“Alice! I’m sorry, we’ll talk about this inside, okay?”

With people gossiping beside me, I grabbed Alice by the shoulders and proceeded to push her into the inn. I was embarrassed to find myself in a situation that was the exact opposite of the one I was standing in earlier.

“What’s that line? Are you trying to get me to make up with you? That’s what I came to the inn for…….Don’t push me! Really, don’t push it!”

What reconciliation……?

I ignored Alice, who spoke unfamiliar words, and pushed her into the inn. I entered the room, took my hand off Alice and closed the door.

“Welcome. You must be a schoolmate of the princess.”

I looked at the voice and saw a man with a white beard and hair in a butler’s uniform bowing. I was relieved and wondered.

Normally, if a princess were to be pushed into the room, it would be considered a crime of disrespect, and it would not be surprising if he were upset.

“We are proud to be the best inn in the capital, so no matter what happens, we will do our best to serve you to the best of our ability, so please rest assured that we will never tell anyone about you.”

He can read my mind⁉

“Yeah, I see.”

“Please don’t worry.”

As I was having a conversation with the old gentleman, Alice interrupted me.

“What are you talking about, leaving me alone?”

Alice seems to be getting angrier, as if she feels she’s been left out.

She’s waving her hand at the old gentleman.

“Take your time then.”

With that, the gentleman left.

“Let’s go, Chris!”

Just then, I hear a voice I’ve heard before.

“Wait a minute!”

“What do you want, Seljan?”

Alice was more annoyed when she was stopped in her tracks.

“I’ve been watching you since you were outside, but what’s with that attitude towards the princess!”

A man dressed in black poked his finger at me and his face was familiar. I wondered who he was……But that’s not the point. The man was probably a member of the royal family, who saw me pushing Alice earlier and wanted to criticize me. What should I do?

“How dare you neglect the princess as if she were air and talk to other people!”

“That’s it!?”

“Yes! Chris! You can’t treat me like I’m air, what do you mean I’m air?”

“Haha, excuse me, Princess!”

Then, the man bowed his head deeply. Alice, could it be that your subordinates are taking you lightly?

“Um, what about the push?”

If I was being watched, it couldn’t get any worse, and I asked to make sure Alice wasn’t being taken lightly.

“What does it matter? What are you trying to say?”

The man really didn’t seem to understand the meaning of my words, and his tone was harsh.

“What do you think I am? Only a wheelbarrow would take you for granted when it comes to pushing!”

“The princess is very intelligent. I’m not educated, so I don’t understand.”

“How could you not know?”

Alice let out a sorrowful cry. However, the man nevertheless kept his head down.

Yeah, I don’t know if they take her lightly or not, but all I know is that the guy is an idiot and that I pity Alice.

“Enough! Let’s go, Chris!”

Then Alice took my hand and tried to walk briskly, leaving the man behind. But since I was still standing there, Alice lost her stance and almost fell, like a stretched rubber band coming back.

“Why aren’t you moving?”

Alice glared at me with tears in her eyes.

Because I don’t want to leave you in a rut with this guy and have him go around saying it was my fault later…….
