I made my debut in the social world at the splendid and gorgeous royal palace, and I was desperately trying to get used to this atmosphere while being escorted by Henry.
“You don’t have to push yourself.”
I say I’m fine, but I’m just going along with it.
Mother walked with her back straight and dignified, attracting attention from everyone around her.
“You are beautiful, Mother.”
Mother smiled and greeted people in this situation, looking relaxed.
In the meantime, the eyes of the women gathered in one direction.
“It’s Lord Diaz.”
“He’s as handsome as ever.”
“Oh, he’s always so popular. Mainly with young women.”
Indeed, most of the women who have been staring at him with hot eyes are young.
“Henry, do you know something?”
“Well… I’ve been on inspection trips with my Father-in-law, and I’ve met him in the Capital before we got married.”
What does that mean?
I haven’t been to the Capital since I graduated from academy.
I didn’t see much of my Father’s work.
“Lord Diaz. Congratulations on this occasion.”
“Thank you. I’m inexperienced, but I’ll do my best…”
“You’re too modest, Lord Diaz.”
The woman who greeted him was a young lady who was a little younger than me.
“She’s the daughter of a marquis who controls the southeast.”
“Her father is the head of the knights and her mother is a princess from another country.”
Why is my Father so friendly with such an amazing person?
“She was a little princess at home, but she had gone to study abroad.”
“Is… is that so?”
“You should look around more.”
Henry told me to look around.
“Mr. Prime Minister.”
“How have you been? I’m very happy that you accepted the title of Count.”
How frank is that?
They look more like close friends than a boss and a subordinate.
“Mr. Prime Minister, are you sneaking out alone?”
“Chief civil official, that’s a nasty way of saying it.”
“It’s the truth, isn’t it? Diaz. You didn’t show up in the Capital much. From now on, I’ll make sure we get along more.”
My Father is so friendly with the Prime Minister and the Chief civil official.
“Oh my? Did you not know?”
“Here, lemon squash.”
Mother gave me and Henry lemon squash.
“Wow, what a beautiful color.”
“The lemon squash here is delicious.”
“Mom, you’re really thick-skinned.”
Mother is amazing to be able to enjoy this situation.
But I was very curious about my Father’s social relations and watched them closely.
“Are you curious?”
“About your Father’s social relations.”
I turned around when I heard a voice from someone I didn’t know and saw a beautiful lady who was worthy of being called a noblewoman.
