Haunted Duke’s Daughter C124
Newspapers are stuck up on the walls, I find this a little bit interesting.
“Can you let me know when it’s finished? I’d like to see it.”
When Lilia said that, the four of them looked up with great energy and their eyes lit up.
“Really? I’ll do my best! You must see it for sure!”
At the sound of Liana’s voice, Lilia nodded with a smile. Seeing this, the remaining three breathed a sigh of relief.
Tania let out a few words. When I looked at Tania, I saw a frightened look on her face, as if she didn’t think I was listening.
“I won’t be offended, just say it.”
Tania’s gaze wandered and she looked at Liana and Ray. When Liana and Ray nodded that it was okay, Tania said as if she had made up her mind.
“Well, you know. I thought you were friendlier than the rumors say you are.”
“What kind of rumors?”
“I don’t know, it’s…….”
She looked away as if she was having a hard time saying it, and her words were muddled. I was wondering if she would answer me.
“She’s quite scary and an extremely selfish person that one should never get involved with. If you get involved with her, she will crush you, so I’ve been told to avoid her as much as possible.”
It was Elk who said so. Immediately, he screamed, “Ow” and fell off his chair. The fact that he was holding his leg suggests that he had been stepped on by Amos. Elk glared at Amos, but Amos did not see Elk. Amos paled again and bowed to Lilia.
“I am truly sorry for my repeated rude remarks”
The three of them bowed. Seeing this, Elk finally understood the meaning of his remarks, and he too hurriedly stood up and bowed. Lilia gave a small sigh and waved her hand, saying that she didn’t mind.
S–Lilia, I have a suggestion.
S–Help make the newspaper.
L–You mean with them?
These four are probably commoners but that doesn’t mean they are to be taken lightly. On the contrary, if Lilia, a duchess, were present, these four would certainly cower.
S–If you accomplish one thing together, you will surely become friends.
L–What if we can’t?
After saying that much, Lilia let out a laugh.
L–Is this necessary?
S–At least I think it is.
L–That’s enough. Let’s ask them at the right time.
At least we can get to know each other a little better but I can’t ask them now.
“Lilia, since you’re here, why don’t we work together?”
Ray said with a smile, probably unaware of Lilia and Sakura’s intentions. This surprised her a little, but the four people in front of her were even more surprised than Lilia.
The three people, except for Liana, were looking at Ray accusingly, but Ray did not make eye contact with them. Liana, by contrast, had a twinkle in her eye. She stared at Lilia as if she expected something from her.
What does this girl expect from her? Lilia’s cheeks almost pulled back as she said to Liana, who was looking at her.
“I don’t know if there is anything I can do to help you but I wouldn’t mind helping you out a little bit.”
Liana broke into a happy smile. The remaining three were wide-eyed with astonishment and dumbfounded, their mouths open.
“Do you know how to write a newspaper?”
“How could I possibly know how to write a newspaper?”
I could count on one hand the number of times I had read a newspaper, and of course I would never know how to write one.
“You may have noticed that we don’t have a family name.”
They don’t have a family name. That means they are commoners. Some commoners do not like to call themselves commoners so “we don’t have a family name” is a bit of a roundabout way of saying we are commoners.
“Aldis-senpai can talk to the other senior nobles, can’t she?”
Lilia’s expression turned grim when she heard that. Lilia’s expression turned grim when she heard that. The actuality is she can certainly ask them if she wanted to but it depends on what they wanted her to ask them.
S–I don’t know why but I have a very bad feeling about this.
L–I have a very bad feeling about it too.
I looked at Liana as if urging her to go on, and she said with a smile
“For example, can you talk to His Royal Highness the Prince?”
Lilia’s expression couldn’t have been grimmer. What she saw in it made even Liana shudder and she immediately sat down in her chair and became smaller.
“I’m sorry, I, uh, got a little carried away…….”
Lilia dusts her brow with her fingers, sighs and says,
“What do you want to ask His Highness?”
Liana looks up vigorously. The four of them looked at each other, nodded and began to write something vigorously on a piece of paper. After waiting for a while, they take the paper offered to them. I skimmed through it and found some questions about Claviles and others.
“I don’t see anything wrong with your question…….All right, I’ll ask.”
Lilia said as she folded the paper, and the four of them cheered.
They thanked her with pure words of gratitude, without any calculation. Although she was only acting as an intermediary, she felt a little embarrassed. Lilia looked away, waved her hand, and said.
“It’s too early to tell. His Highness is also very busy, and I don’t know if he will answer. All I can do is ask him for you.”
“That’s enough! Oh, if it is possible, I would like you to answer me, too, Liliane-sama.”
It was Tania who said so. Lilia looked down at the folded paper and sighed.
“Fine. I’ll just go ahead and ask everyone I know.”
“Wow! Thank you!”
Hearing the four happy voices, Lilia was also happy, if only a little. But she was only here to listen.
“The fact that Lilia-san is asking is a threat that no one can refuse…….”
Ray said something like that. Lilia heard it and quickly grabbed Ray’s head and gave him a gentle smile.
“I didn’t hear you very well? Can you repeat that?”
“Oh, sorry, I’m just kidding…….Ouch! I’m sorry, that was unnecessary, please forgive me!”
When Ray screamed, Lilia released him. Ray falls down on the table with his head in his hands. The four of them watched, gulping, three had fear in their eyes and one had a twinkle.
