I turned to look at him and instantly regretted my decision.
There was definitely an "airheaded aristocrat" there, in more ways than one.
As I had been taught at the tailor shop, men's formal wear is usually simple and chic, except for the vest and lining, and of course most of the people here were wearing such formal wear.
Even with a few exceptions, there is a modest embroidery of the same color thread on the jacket. No one wears fancy clothes--except him.
Standing in front of me was a man in a very flashy purple ceremonial dress.
It's impossible to tell from the color, but the dress is embroidered with colorful threads in a fancy way.
Simply put, it's the kind of embroidered clothing that a delinquent would wear. Something like that.
In addition, the surface of the garment is shiny and sparkly, like a jewel or something, and it hurts my eyes.
I guess you could call it luxurious, but to my eyes, it looks like something cheap.
Some of my hair is also purple. ...... You dye your hair, right?
It's not your natural hair, is it?
I'm not sure what to say.
I'm not sure what to make of it.
And with her hands outstretched and a smile on her face.
I felt like stepping forward to protect Master Ilias and Haruka, but I couldn't do that in this situation.
Unless there is a clear danger, as a matter of etiquette, I have to stay behind Master Ilias.
"Miss, may I ask your name?
It was already obvious from the way she was dressed that she couldn't read the air, but her behavior was the same.
The man's eyes were on Haruka.
But this is clearly a breach of etiquette.
We are here now as the followers of Master Ilias.
Nevertheless, it's not normal to call out to Haruka in a way that ignores Master Ilias.
Naturally, Ilias-sama stepped forward to interrupt them.
"Who are you?
I am Pano Gnos, the eldest son of Baron Aare Gnos. Please make my acquaintance.
The man finally turned his attention to the Iliad and gave an exaggerated bow, to which the Iliad replied with an air of displeasure.
I am Ilias Nenus, daughter of Viscount Joachim Nenus.
"I have heard of Viscount Nenus ....... I've heard of him. Does he rule the northwestern frontier?
Yes, I do.
"I see. But since this is not the time, would you mind keeping your daughter off to the side?
While Master Ilias was stunned by the unbelievable behavior of the nobleman, Panno approached, avoiding Master Ilias.
"Oh, your shining, lustrous hair, your beautiful skin, your slender limbs. Very nice. It's a loss to the world to have a gem like you on the frontier. I hope you'll join my family.
I took Haruka's hand and hid it behind my back, interrupting Pano who was sleepwalking.
Pernod sees this and frowns in displeasure.
What is it with you? I'm not here for you.
"Do you see this?
The man twisted his head curiously as I gazed at the ornaments around his neck and around Haruka's waist.
What's wrong with that? Yes, it's not a bad cloth. Of course, it's not as good as mine.
No, don't compare it to that glittery purple cloth of bad taste.
No, I'm not.
You taught me the meaning of the decorative cloth, right?
I looked at him with some concern, but he also looked at me as if he had seen something incredible.
Okay, you're right.
Let's put it plainly. She's my partner. I need you to stay away from her.
"....... You're going to say that to me, a nobleman? A mere squire?
Pernod looks uncomfortable, but I'm more uncomfortable.
I was about to lash out in that unpleasantness, but it was difficult to do so given the publicity and my position. It was quite stressful.
The one who took care of it for me was Ilias, who had recovered.
If you are a nobleman, why don't you learn some manners first? If you go too far, I'll have to protest to Baron Gnoss.
"Hmm. How much do you want? A beautiful elf is not suitable for a frontier nobleman. I'll tell my dad and see what he can do.
The reply to Ilias-sama, who had expressed his displeasure quite clearly, was quite unbelievable.
The smile on Ilias's face tightened.
It's not a question of money. It's not about money. Pernod Gnos seems to be a bit lacking in education.
"(d*mn you, kid. If you're too greedy, you may end up with nothing at all. There are many ways to do it.
I'm a high performance person, and the swearing that Pano whispered into my ear reached me.
At first, he was smiling like a nice young man, but now his expression is completely thug-like.
I clenched my fists at the joke, but Ilias, on the other hand, looked like he had plenty of time to spare, shrugged his shoulders exaggeratedly, and shook his head.
You should be more careful with your words and actions. Unlike me, you're not old enough to be overlooked as a child, are you?
Purno's expression of anger at Ilias-sama's rather clear (for a nobleman) abuse was...
"I overheard something. I think you misunderstand our race as if they were works of art or something. Baron Gnoss?
The one who interrupted me saying that was Arlandy Slyvya. The one who interrupted our conversation was Arlandi Slyvya, an elf nobleman of the Slyvya Count family.
What the hell are you--?
It's a good idea to take a look at the actual information on the web, as well as the information on the internet.
Either way, it is a fatal stupidity for a nobleman.
Even those of us who have only received a cramming education - or even if we haven't, we can understand that the response is wrong.
And that foolishness can be interrupted by a tap on the shoulder from behind.
You're making a bit of noise, aren't you? I think you'd better calm down. Hmm?
Standing there was the Marquis of Marmont.
The Marquis of Marmont is a man of rank, but his power as a human being is completely different.
Even if Pano didn't know about the Marquis of Marmont's title, he wouldn't have the gall to remain calm when he was threatened by him.
He's flirtatious by all accounts.
The way she was dressed, she looked like she was saying, "Weee! I'm Lambert Marmont.
"I'm Lumber Marmont, and you're Pernod, Baron Gnoss, right?
"Hmmm, ......, that's a bit of a bad vibe. I'll get back to you. See you soon.
I'll see you in a little bit." "Don't call me 'air' if you can't read me at all," he said, but it wasn't a bad exit.
The Marquis of Marmont's name may have reminded him of his rank, but Pernod's face turned a little pale as he quickly walked away from us and out of the hall.
But at the end of the day, the way he looked at Haruka seemed to be very stubborn, which made me feel quite uncomfortable and anxious.
If you're not sure what to do, you can always ask your doctor.
In the event that you have any questions concerning where and how to use the internet, you can call us at our own webpage.
Thank you, Marquis of Marmont and Master Slyvya.
"Thank you very much.
The Marquis of Marmont and Master Slyvya, thank you." "Thank you." Since it was an obvious help this time, we also bowed our heads and thanked Ilias.
It may be that the man was just too conspicuous, but he may have been paying attention to us in a subtle way, since he interrupted us in a precise manner.
Considering the fact that Ilias-sama was picked up by the Marquis of Marmont when he was a small child, I wonder if there is some kind of connection between the Viscountess of Nenus and the Marquis of Marmont.
I don't care, that's enough. I've never seen this before. I've never seen him before. ...... Do you know Erlandy?
"I know Baron Gnoss, but this is the first time I've seen a man claiming to be his legitimate son. Baron Gnoss himself is not much of a man,.......
I don't even have a rating to lower. I don't even have a rating to lower. Hahahaha!
The Marquis of Marmont himself, perhaps not knowing Baron Gnoss very well, said such a thing and laughed gaily.
If you think about it, Baron Gnoss might be a lowly nobleman with nothing outstanding about him.
If that's the case, there's not much to worry about, but judging from his clothes, he seems to have a certain amount of money, which worries me.
His taste was bad, but he seemed to have a lot of money from the embroidery.
I don't know much about Baron Gnoss either, so I'd like to talk to your father about it when I get back.
That would be a good idea. I don't know much about Baron Gnoss either. Oh, I won't force you to move your activities. It's a family affair.
I'll help you, too. If you're one of Miss Ilias' favorite adventurers. I'd love to have you come to my territory at least once, but it's a bit far. ......
It's the same with my territory.
The Marquess of Marmont and the Count of Slyvya are adjacent to each other, but from the Viscount of Nenus, it will take four or five times longer to get there than from Pining to Mijara.
I wondered if it was safe for the Marquis of Marmont to be away from his estate for such a long period of time, let alone Arlandy, who was not the head of the estate, but later I heard that his heir had already come of age and was doing a fine job, so there was not much of a problem.
Furthermore, the Marquis of Marmont himself, as well as his bodyguards, were all strong beasts, and they were able to travel in a short period of time by running on their own feet instead of using a carriage.
Normally, even if this were possible, he would use a carriage out of concern for public opinion, but he seems to be unconventional in that way as well.
"My God, you two. Please don't tempt the precious adventurers of my territory too much. Even high-level adventurers don't stay with us.
The Marquesses of Marmont smiled at Ilias, who puffed up his cheeks a little and complained.
The Marquesses of Marmont smiled as if they were nurturing a child, "No, no, no, I didn't mean it like that. But you said there are beastmen in the party. It's hard for our kind to find a marriage partner.
A marriage trip of sorts?
That could be it.
I think it's better than having to choose between Toya, Mary and the others, and I'm happy to see a variety of beastmen.
The practical Mitya seems to be aiming at Toya, who can afford it, but as her skills improve and she becomes more independent as an adventurer, she may be able to expand her horizons.
Yes, sir. Fortunately, the two of you don't seem to be a problem. But you are beautiful, even to your own people. If you don't have a partner, I'd like to come forward.
Aarandi praised Haruka's appearance with a noble gesture that was not at all sarcastic.
It's not like I'm all about appearances.
The compliment is the same as Pano's, but the fact that it doesn't make you feel uncomfortable is amazing.
Even Haruka, who doesn't like to be picked on, replies with a soft smile on her face.
I'm sorry. But I've already made up my mind.
"I understand. It's a great match. I'd like to know when you get married. I'll be there.
Even though he was rejected, Arlandi bowed with a fresh smile.
It was lip service, but it was very cool to see how well he looked.
So this is a natural nobleman.
From then until the end of the wedding party, the Marquis of Marmont and Erlandy stayed by our side without leaving us.
The Marquis of Marmont's appetite was even more impressive up close, and I was able to use that as a cover to eat as well, which was one of the benefits.
Thanks to the two of them, no strange noblemen reappeared, and we survived the reception without incident.
