59-Episode 59: Personality is difficult

 A few days have passed since Mireille became a vassal.
 The news of the start of the military council has not yet arrived.

''Um, Master Ars, may I have a word with you?''

 I heard Reetz's voice from outside the room.

'Come in,'
Excuse me.

 The door opens and Leets walks in.

 Rietz's expression looked somewhat sullen.

''It's about Mireille........''
What about her?
''Well I know it would be very rude of Lady Ars to say this, but I think Mireille is unfit to be a vassal.

 Rietz gave his opinion with some hesitation.

 The newly appointed vassal, Mireille, has been a source of trouble lately.

 I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but I think it's a good idea.
 Since the war hadn't started yet, Mireille had been entrusted with teaching the soldiers and playing the role of Roselle's teacher.
 His martial prowess is reasonably high, and his infantry aptitude is so high that he can usually beat a man one-on-one. On top of that, he also serves magic reasonably well, so he teaches them to magic as well.

 But then, it seems that he often skips work without feeling motivated, and also says and does things that discourage others from doing so.

It's a good idea to have a good idea of your personality. Today at noon, too, he threw away his work and slept in his room. Furthermore, there have been many indications that he is not motivated to instruct the troops at the training grounds as well.

 Rietz is pissed off and gradually blushes as he speaks.

'When I pointed out to her to change her attitude, she said that sometimes people are in that mood, or whatever, and didn't show any signs of remorse. Even though she has some ability, having her as a vassal is definitely a negative for the Loebent family.

 The more he spoke, the more flushed Leet's face became redder and redder. Anyway, I could tell that he was pissed off.

 Well, even though he has flaws, he's that capable, and I can't banish him so easily.......

Ars, I'm coming in!

 It's Roselle's voice. He walked into the room without asking my permission. Roselle's expression is also a little angry, just like Reetz.

''Mireille-san, what is it, Ars told me to ask her to tell me, but I'm at my wits end!

 Roselle is not the type of person who shows her feelings of anger to those around her. But in this case, he seems to be mad at Kang Kang.

'What happened?'
'Mr. Mireille is basically asleep and unmotivated, but that's all I need to know. If you're awake, he'll take you outside and make you run something, saying that reading is useless. When I was done, I asked him if there was any point to this, and he said something incomprehensible, like that's something you have to find out for yourself. That was definitely just for fun! I don't need people to tell me what to do anymore, so I don't mind sleeping in, but I'm not going to allow you to interrupt me!

 It sounds like you're pretty depressed.
 Hmm, maybe it's because of Mireille's own thoughts, though.

 I haven't yet gotten a grasp on her personality, so I can't judge how it is.

 I'm sure you'll be able to find a few complaints about Mireille from the vassals even after that.

 It's a very good idea to be able to have a good idea of what you're looking for.

 The reputation of the vassals seems to have fallen significantly.
 I can't make a fair assessment until I use them in battle, but if this is the case, I'll need to think about it. Maybe I should give them a warning once.

 Just as I was thinking that, boom, from outside! There was a loud sound, "What is it?

'Hey, what is it?'
That was amazing.

 Rietz and Roselle, who were there, are upset.

 We hurriedly went outside to see what the sound was.
 The vassals have come outside armed with the possibility of an attack by enemy soldiers. Soldiers also come rushing in from the training grounds.

 There was a forest outside the mansion, but there was a large crater open in it.
 This was similar to the scene from when Charlotte had tried her magic in the past.

 Mireille and Charlotte were looking at the crater, side by side.

'Amazing. I didn't know there were magical soldiers with such talent. It's amazing.''
It's not as bad as it sounds.
Really? Then give me another one.
Okay, not that! Stop!

 It stopped Charlotte from trying to shoot the magic.
 The sound seemed to be Charlotte's magic.

'Ah, it's Lord Ars.'
Why did you do this?
My sister Mireille told me she wanted to see the magic, so I used it.

 Charlotte seemed to be on the same page with Mireille, which was rare among her vassals.

''If you shoot with such high power, it would be dangerous and cause a commotion. You should have used a less powerful one.'
It's not gonna get any better. I heard that Charlotte was really hot and I wanted to see her at her best. This is much better than I expected.
'You know ... you could have let me know once before you used it, couldn't you?
'Oh, I'm sorry about that. I didn't expect it to get this far.

 It seems that Mireille didn't have any bad intentions.
 Well, Charlotte's magic is far more powerful than you can imagine, so it's not hard to understand.

 But the vassals other than me were originally filled with exasperation, and perhaps because they didn't feel the seriousness of the attitude of apologizing further, their anger seemed to have reached its peak in this case.

''Don't be silly, you!'' Come on!

 And the complaints began to pour in.

 I think Charlotte was largely responsible for using magic, but the anger of the vassals seemed to be directed at Mireille.

You have to have a good time. You want me to stop?''

 Mireille didn't seem to bear the abuse at all, and she said so in an imposing manner.

'I wonder what the boy thinks. 'Do you want me to stop attaches?'
'It's ... I'm not going to stop you now, but if you keep this up from now on ...'
'Hmmm, that's a bit of a problem. Since I came here, I've just been a natural. I'm sure you'll be able to find a way to make it work. I'm sure you'll be able to find a way to make it work.

 Apparently, he's not going to change his attitude. Mireille said she was expelled for being difficult to get rid of, but it was probably because of this attitude that she decided to quit.

I don't want to quit either.......right. Didn't you say there's a mock battle next time?

 Periodically, mock battles are held at the Loebent house.
 The next mock battle is in two days. This will be Mireille's first time participating.

'If you do well there, how about we don't let you quit on me?

 When Mireille said this, before I could reply, there was a shout of protest from the vassals.

 But for me, I thought it was a good idea. I originally adopted it with the expectation that it would be useful in battle. As long as that is the case, we can ignore the other aspects of our lives. At least until this war is over.

I'm not going to be able to get it right. I have seen that Mireille has great talents to show in battle. There may be shortcomings in other aspects, but if she does well in this mock battle, I hope you'll be able to tolerate her results.

 When he said this, the vassals reluctantly stopped rebelling.
