Chapter 9 : Birthday Party with Onii-sama
There are still a little time before Miriella's birthday party.
Leon let his attendant Bert back down and took out a pen and paper from the writing desk drawer.
He sketch Miriella's face on the paper.
(I remembered the name my sister-in-law (The Duchess) told me.
That child is the capture target character “Duke's Son Ed”)
Ed, the son of a duke.
He is an extremely bright and energetic character who develops a love relationship with the positive heroine.
If one were to realize, there should have been a timing to notice it because it was a duke family and his name was Edmont.
Write “Ed” on the character drawn on the picture of Miriella, and connect it to Miriella and “brother and sister”.
And next to that, he drew another character wearing a crown and connected Ed's picture with 'friends'.
Ed is the son of a duke, and he is also a schoolmate of the third prince of this country.
Yes, the third prince familiar from otome games. [TL note: familiar, as in, someone close.]
And the character Miriella is also familiar with this, the young noble daughter, fiancé of the third prince (tentative).
In other words, this third prince is Edmont's friend and the man who will become Miriella's fiancée.
Connect the three people with a triangle and write their relationship.
Then he drew another character's face and connected it with Miriella and wrote “uncle/niece”.
It's easy to forget because of the age difference, but he's also a capture character.
Miriella's fiancée, brother, and uncle are the target characters for the heroine.
This can only be seen as a scenario to trap Miriella…
For the time being, he wrote 'Rookie Knight' and 'Fortune Teller' next to it, and Leon put down his pen with a sigh.
“You're beautiful, Ojou-sama.”
It's a beauty suitable for the leading role.”
When Melisa praised him enchantedly, Maille spoke of her master's beauty without losing.
After receiving the stamp of approval from her two maids, Miriella, who turned ten years old, stretched her spine sharply.
The two of them opened the door leading to the hall in front of them, and Miriella stepped into the hall, which gradually became quiet like ripples.
Her carefully combed strawberry-blonde hair swayed down her back in light waves.
She is slender and tall for a ten-year-old girl, and her little-decorated red dress suits her very well.
Her matching white enameled shoes and pearl necklace made her little-girl body look like a fine lady.
The invited guests see Miriella and breathe softly in admiration.
Meanwhile, the Fowders servants glanced proudly at the little lady.
“Miriella, happy birthday! You've become beautiful!”
An out-of-place loud voice resounds in the quiet hall.
It's her brother Edmont.
People who are struck by unaccustomed air that comes are at a loss for words, but Miriella, the main character, breaks the atmosphere.
“Thank you Onii-sama.”
When Miriella smiles with a big smile, applause erupts from here and there in the venue.
She spread her smile around her with an easy-going gesture befitting her age.
Following Edmont, her father and mother, and then her parents' close relatives, surrounded Miriella.
Edmont's voice resounded remarkably well, but the familiar audience resumed their pleasant conversation.
“Onii-sama has a very loud voice I see.”
“Thank you! I was told that a lot too at the academy!”
Even though she wasn't praising him, Edmont innocently thanked her.
Miriella thinks that he might not be a bad person, although he doesn't mesh well and his voice is loud.
Her standard of judgment is basically Leon's teaching, and a child who can say thank you according to it is a good child.
“More than that, I was surprised!”
“What is it?”
“The way you and Oji-sama have changed! I was sure the time when I left this house, I remember you were a very mean and uncontrollable selfish child!”
It's an unbelievable offense to the main character of the birthday party.
However, the commotion in the venue was restored and the performance of the invited band had started, so the surroundings did not freeze.
Isn't that disrespectful to today's protagonist?”
Where did he come from, Leon suddenly appeared and stood between the two.
He usually wears the usual white shirt and navy blue vest, but today he's wearing a red coat with gold embroidery over it, and culottes and long boots.
Seeing him for the first time, Miriella couldn't help but be in high spirits.
“Oji-sama, what a nice dress.” (Miriella)
“I asked Bert that your tenth birthday was special.
So he made me a new one.”
“It suits you very well.” (Miriella)
A crimson coat goes well with red hair.
The slender and tall Leon was very attractive with the combination of a long coat and boots.
Above all, it's a color that matches today's Miriella's red dress.
This made Miriella more happy than anything else, to the extent that she forgot Edmont's existence for a bit.
“Oji-sama! You've changed a lot too, haven't you! I heard that you were cured of your shut-in syndrome after I entered the dormitory!”
“Onii-sama, your voice is too loud.”
“Is that so?”
Edmont looked at Miriella and Leon with a look of self-respect in the innocence of a twelve-year-old.
Then he smiled and put his hand on Miriella's shoulder.
“I see! You and Oji-sama were both influenced by each other! I'm happy that you've recovered from your shut-in syndrome, and I'm also happy that you've recovered from your terrible personality!” [TL note: the last sentence meant for Miriella.]
“Let's shut up for a second, Edmont.”
He's not a bad boy.
His only flaws are that his voice is too loud and he's too honest.
Leon persuaded himself so, and managed to get through this place with a smile on his face.
Speaking of Miriella, the main character, she felt like her brother said, “You're close with Leon,” and she felt great.
Edmont who was parried, began to be spoken to by the nobles of the invited guests.
Luckily, the two quietly left the place.
He couldn't do it when his “memories of the previous era” was strong, but now Leon can put one arm out in front of Miriella to escort her.
Miriella, who happily put her hand on it, went to the edge of the hall together with Leon.
“Oji-sama, have you found yourself used to the party?”
I don't think it's suitable for me.
Well, I can't stay here forever, so this is also a good experience.”
“There is brother-in-law (The Duke), and there is also Edmont, the heir.
I'm already 21 years old, and I have to think about leaving this house and getting a job soon.”
Miriella pulled back the white-gloved hand that was on Leon's arm.
A step later, Leon notices and peers at Miriella's face below.
Miriella's scarlet eyes moistened and stared at Leon while receiving the light.
“Why are you saying that on my birthday?”
With a *fwoosh* flipping the hem of her red dress, Miriella left Leon.
She soon immediately disappeared in the circle of people who were waiting for the right timing to call out.
