The three of us left the Marquis's mansion and headed for the Amour's mansion. Now that everything is done, I want to get out of these clothes as soon as possible. After arriving in the capital, I went to the forge first and then directly to the Marquise, so this is the first time I've been to the Amur house.
The Amour residence is smaller than the Marquis residence, but it has a magnificent gate. Camilo and I were ushered into a splendidly furnished room, probably a parlor. Marius is not there now. He's probably changing out of his casual clothes. I'd like to change too ......, but then a middle-aged man who looked like a servant said
"Mr. Eizo, this way, please.
I was the only one who was called.
I walked down the corridor with the servant. Like the corridor leading to the parlor, it was not decorated with vases and armor, as I had imagined in the previous world. There were only a few tapestries decorating the walls. A servant opened the door and said, "Come in.
"Come in, come in.
Please come in. I obeyed the instruction and entered the room, where several female servants were waiting for me. The door was closed behind me. However, it seems that nothing "important" is going to happen. My clothes are folded beside me.
It must have been difficult for you to get used to wearing them. I'll help you change now.
A female servant quickly removes the nobleman's clothes. It's a good thing I don't know how to put on clothes, because I have no idea how to take them off. I've learned this morning that it takes a lot of time to do this if you resist, so I'll just let her do it. I can put on my own clothes, but if you insist on dressing me, I will obey you.
I'm sure she's used to it, and in no time at all, I'm dressed in my usual Villager A outfit. It's really relaxing. I don't feel comfortable in such extravagant clothes. While I was enjoying the feeling of freedom, the servant girls were giggling.
"What is it?
No, I was just thinking that you seem to be particularly fond of your appearance, Master Eizo.
"Oh. I'm just an old man in town. I'm just an old man in town. Besides, it looks better on me, don't you think?
I said, laughing, as if to say something funny.
The servants laughed even harder.
Now that I had finished changing, I went back to the original parlor with the servant man who had shown me in. Inside, Marius and Camilo, who had changed into much rougher clothes than usual, were drinking tea and chatting.
"Oh, you're back.
Marius was the first to react.
"Yeah. When I changed my clothes, I could see how stiff my shoulders were. It also made me realize that I'm not cut out to be a nobleman.
I reply with a laugh. Camilo took advantage of this.
Camilo chuckled and said, "No difference. No matter which way I dress, I'm never going to be in awe of you.
The three of us all laughed.
"Well, thank you very much for your help with this. Thank you.
Marius bows his head.
"I told you first. You took care of me in the city, and this is my way of returning the favor.
"Yes, yes. Aside from Eizo, if I'm not mistaken, I'm also connected to the Count's family, and I didn't do much, so don't worry about it.
I'm very grateful to hear you say that.
Marius smiled timidly. Marius smiled timidly, "I'm very glad to hear that, because normally we'd be holding the Count's biggest secret. It seems that they know that we have no intention of doing anything with it.
So, I can't give you a big reward, but I can give you a small token of my gratitude.
I wouldn't have a problem with you continuing to do business with us. Just the fact that you're doing business with the Count's family is good enough for me.
Camilo makes a request. It's a bit conservative, but I guess being a merchant for the Count's family gives you an edge.
"All right. I'm sure you'll be able to find something that works for you. Where's Eizo?
I don't know. I want this! I'm not sure what I want. ...... Oh, there's that one.
I want information on rare ores. Not ironstone, but something more rare.
"Like silver, mithril?
Yeah. That's exactly what I need.
You say "information." You don't want the actual ore?
All I need is the information I can get. I'll ask Camilo to get it for me.
Well, I'll see what I can do. And when you find it, you'll tell Camilo, won't you?
I looked at Camilo, and he nodded. I didn't ask him, but it looks like he's going to do it. Thank goodness.
And that's a different reward. Don't say anything, just take it.
A small bag is handed to Camilo and me. We look inside and find a few gold coins.
"Hey, hey, .......
I try to decline. But Marius stares at me and shakes his head. It's not a good idea to be too adamant about this. .......
"Well, I'm sorry, but I'll take it.
Marius nodded this time.
When the conversation was over and I was ready to leave, I asked Marius.
I asked Marius, "Speaking of which, we have to take Diana home, right? You have a feast to celebrate, right?
"Hmm? Yes, I do. I have to justify my succession to the throne as soon as possible.
What is it? You're at a loss for a response right now. You're starting to sound like Marius when he was in the guard. Oh well.
"Then I'll work with Camilo and bring him back in a few days. Is that okay?
Yeah, I'm good.
All right, take care of it. I'll contact the authorities accordingly.
The last meeting is over. All that's left is to go home. I've only been away for three days, but I'm already missing home. I left Amur's mansion, suppressing my anger, and headed home.
