325-323 Princess Ambition

 A new system of studying abroad on a farm has been started.

 It's an attempt to bring together young people from the human, demon, and fish tribes and train them to be the future of the world while interacting with each other.

 Thanks to this program, the average age of the farm has dropped dramatically, and at the same time, the population distribution of the farm has been greatly affected.

 The number of demons and mermaids had also increased.

 And the increase in the number of the human race was the beginning of the incident...?

   * * * *

This is an opportunity!

 Lettuce Rate came before me to consult.
 It was Lettuce Rate, a former princess of the Human Nation.

''Opportunity for what?''
"Restore the Land! This is your chance to launch a counterattack against the Demon Lord's army!

 You're talking nonsense again...!

 Lettuce Rate is a princess of the exiled country.

 She is the princess of the human kingdom that was destroyed by the Demon King's army and was originally supposed to be executed with the fall of the country, but here she is.
 She was about to disappear with the dew on the decapitation table, but she survived by the mercy of her enemy, the Demon King.
 And here we are, in the form of exile or rather imprisonment.

 When she first moved here, she was full of high-handedness like a princess, but as the days went by, she got used to life, took off her horns, and changed her class to just a hard worker.
 Well, that didn't correct the part of her that was still stupid, though.

 I thought he was no longer thinking only of the amount of beans he was going to grow, and he didn't have an ounce of thought for his restoration as a princess.......

''Look, look, look! You said you were an exchange student the other day, and there are many ethnic kids here!
"Let's keep those boys on their toes! Eventually, he'll lead a rebellion to restore the land and reclaim the human nation from the hands of the demon race! And I will be a princess again! Maybe!
Oh, my God.
I know they have a lot of potential, don't they? They have a bright future, don't they?

 The ability of these students to do so has rekindled the ambition that I thought had been extinguished.

 Please don't do this.

 It's really a delicate position to be executed for having a slightly dangerous thought.
 I'm always interested in keeping things civil, so please don't take this risk in front of me.

 And it's hard to get a read on whether or not he's really serious when he comes all the way to talk to me about it.

I thought I needed your permission to reveal my identity and gain your respect, so I came to you for advice!
Oh, yeah...?
Hey, you know what? Okay!

 I can't read how serious this guy really is.
 Is it real? Are you really that stupid?

Yeah, yeah.

 I was curious to see how serious his stupidity was, so I gave him the go-ahead.

I have the official permission from the Ceja to incorporate all the farm's people into my household. It's the charisma of the royal family and Ichikoro!

 With that, Lettuce Rate ran away.
 I was so worried about her that I followed her.

    I followed her.

Hold back, hold back! Who do you think I am?
...who do you think I am?
"Fear not, former Princess of Humanity, Lady Lettuce Slate! Have you forgotten my face!

 Lettuce Rate approached the human exchange students with all the momentum she could muster.

 The students are now helping out on the farm as it is not their time to study.

 Lettuce Rate, looking at the farm work of these young students........

Don't pull out the whole root.''
'What? Is that so?
"When you pull out the roots, you tear up the soil. And it's a pain in the ass, isn't it? These things don't grow back as long as you trim the border between the stem and the root and cover it with dirt.
Oh, I see.

 There was a lecture at the senior and junior levels of agriculture, and once again........

''I am the Princess Lettuce Rate of the Human Nation!

 I called myself Babaan again.
 But the reactions of the foreign students of the same human race were thin........

I've been pretending to ignore it...

 On the contrary, she reacted like she was annoyed with me!

'Huh? Aren't you impressed? Your royal family survived, remember?
It would have been better for us if they'd just died out.

 Lettuce Rate was shocked by the scathing words from the foreign student boy and girl.

''Because we're much better off now that we're occupied by demons than we were when the royalty was still alive and well.
'Taxes are light, no thought control, and most importantly, no more war! We're finally living in peace and prosperity, so please don't set back the clock by doing something unnecessary!
I want it now. I don't want to go back to the past.

 Lettuce Rate is cornered by the frank arguments from his own people.

'Of course not. Look at the reality.
'I didn't like the way this was going, so I was desperately pretending not to notice the princess walking around the farm,'

 What the tribal students have to say is also valid.
 The three races are finally coming together to create an era of peace, but how can they risk destroying that peace for the sake of the selfishness of a few royalty?

''But I won't give up!

 Give up the lettuce rate.

I know it! There's more than one way to move people! If you won't work for the cause, then I'll have to resort to other means!

 What the hell?
 You're telling me you're a former member of the royal family, and you have a lot of experience in winning people's hearts and minds?

"The most effective means of motivating those who are not driven by the greater good is profit!
'Follow me and I'll give you the reward you deserve! So what do you think?
You want to get paid for this...?

 Hey, tribal students, when you hear about the reward, you are a little shaken up!
 We all want money, don't we?

 But what money do you have at your disposal at the current lettuce rate?
 I'm a prisoner of war, you know? That guy?

'Come on, take all you want! I've been saving up for my farm life...!

 Lettuce rate, grabbing it out of the sack at his waist.........


 They were just soybeans.
 Lettuce Rate became addicted to beans when he started growing his own favorite crops, starting with beans, then peanuts, soybeans, red beans, peas, etc.
 He grew so much of them that he now entrusted Lettuce Rate with the bean production for the entire farm.

'Come on, you'll get all the beans you want if you stick by me!

 Lettuce Rate approached the people in a dignified manner. With beans.
 In response, the human race students had a look of 'disappointment'.

''I don't want to!''

 Lettuce rate, in a truly unexpected wind.

'Why? How so? The beans, they're delicious! You want it!
No, the meat is better anyway, so...

 Lettuce rate, too shocking.
 But it even comes to a tailspin.

I'd rather have sweets like cake and ice cream too...
I'd like a drink.

 They all point out that there are many things that taste better than beans.

"Geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee? Oh no!

 That was what knocked the lettuce rate down more than anything else.
 Thus, her mission to retake the country was aborted when she was making friends.

    * * * *


 Lettuce rate, crying.
 It's so sad that she's crying wet in her good friend Horcosfon's lap.

Good, good, he was really sad.

 Angel Holkosfon, patting his friend Lettuce Rate on the head.

'The way they made fun of my beans,'
"Oh, you're over there!

 I'm still accompanying him, I immediately tsk.

 You're not sad that your return as a princess didn't end up being a failure of the plan, you're sad that your beans weren't accepted.

The beans are delicious! Oi Grandpa's goodness!''

 It really was.
 Where does this love of beans come from, Lettuce Rate?

'It's indignant to me, too. An insult to beans is an insult to me and Lettuce Rate...!

 And now even Holkosfone is on fire.

Master, I wish to remind you young people of the power of beans.
'Yes! I want to make sure I tell them that beans are good!

 He shouted as he cried out to Lettuce Rate.
 Hey, what happened to your territorial ambitions?

'I will do it with my whole being! Beans are delicious! Let them know it's the strongest ingredient!

 It doesn't matter anymore, hi.
 Thus, the spark of warfare was safely extinguished, and the slightly absurd topic of 'making beans popular among the youth' was brought up instead.
