ed an air of refinement…

“Schwarz-sama… is that you?”

“…Michel, are you still half asleep?”

Furrowing his brow in suspicion, it was indeed Schwarz-sama.

“Wow! You look completely different!”

I want to give the hairdresser an envelope of money! This is the perfect “Your Excellency General” look that will fit into the royal castle!

“It really suits you!”

To my great admiration, Schwarz-sama turns away.

“You look red and like you’re going to catch a cold.”

Because there was no beard, his reddish cheeks were exposed.

“You are really looking cool.”

I say with a smile, but he looks disgruntled.

“Is the usual me not good enough?”

“Normally, you are wonderful too, but there are hairstyles that suit formal occasions.
I think it’s necessary to change yourself depending on the situation, not necessarily good or bad.”

“Indeed… wearing this military uniform makes me stand up straighter than usual.”

Schwarz-sama nods with his eyes slightly closed, and his outfit and hairstyle match well… although the potatoes he’s holding do not.


“Schwarz-sama, you’re quite young, aren’t you?”

He had always been hiding his face with his hair and beard, so his age was uncertain, but his forehead and cheeks were very fresh and youthful.

“Is that so? I’m not that young.
I’m 26.”

“What!?”

Huh? I knew it! Based on his high position, I thought he was much older!

“It’s amazing that you, Schwarz-sama, could rise to the rank of general at such a young age.”

Impressed, I made a remark and he pursed his lips.

“I didn’t do it because I wanted to.
I just became the commander automatically because all of my superiors died.”

…It seems like he doesn’t want to talk about it.

When I stopped questioning him, Schwarz-sama opened his mouth and said, “Michelle…”

But then he stopped.

“What? What is it?”

I’m curious when he stops in the middle of his sentence.
In a low voice, he said, 

“Well, my aide said that you shouldn’t ask a woman her age recklessly because you might get stabbed.”

“I won’t stab you.
I’m 18 years old.”


“What!? You’re already an adult!”

Now it’s Schwarz-sama’s turn to be surprised.

“I was impressed by how hardworking you were even though you were small.”

By the way, in our country, adulthood starts at 15.
How young did he think I was?

“Well, even if I know your age, you’re still a hard worker.”

…Is that a compliment? I’m a little unsure, but it’s fine.

“If you have time before work, would you like to eat lunch at home? I can make tomato pasta quickly.”

“I’ll eat.”

I’m happy with his quick response.

“Oh, and please take off your uniform when you eat.
It would be a big deal if you got tomato sauce on it.”

…Oops.
I said something unnecessary.

Schwarz-sama nodded generously at me when I regretted saying it.

“Michelle, you are very thoughtful, you help me a lot.”

“….!”

When he approves of me with his face not hidden by his beard, his charisma is even stronger than usual…

I could only turn bright red and look down.
