were Eugene, she would have been embarrassed and said thank you for being a parent, but he took a very natural attitude.
She asked with a slightly disapproving expression, wondering if Her Highness, the Queen Mother, felt the same way as she did.

“Does he know that he is good-looking?”

But it seemed to be a compliment.
He just said thank you.”

Uh, well, that’s right.
Because it’s usually a good-looking compliment.
She squinted her eyes and started looking at Elliot.
Did he really not know that he was good-looking? Was he that good looking? On their way here today, men as well as women who had passed us stopped and looked at Elliot.
In particular, the old men were even impressed.


Elliot, the queen’s highness, didn’t seem to like her.
She looked at him, still disapproving, then turned her head to her and asked.

“You made a fuss at the ball.”

Ugh, that was it.
She tried to shrug her shoulders and stopped.
Turning her head slightly, Elliot was making a face that asked if it was like this.
She quickly turned her head toward Her Highness, the Queen Mother.

And she said it as calmly as possible.

It was Lord Masterson who made the fuss.”

Her Majesty the Queen looked like she knew Eugene would.
She laughed and said.

“All I heard was that you were giving Count Serado a lot of trouble.”

“I don’t know who it is, but I’ve sent a message to Her Highness.
It was Sir Masterson, not me, who troubled Count Serado.”

It seemed that Her Highness the Queen Mother knew about it.

“I hear you quarreled with Lord Masterson and troubled Count Serado.”


She had often met Her Highness the Queen Mother since she was young.
In this way, she called and scolded her when she got involved in a riot, and after a few experiences, she learned how to behave.
At her call, the Queen Mother put on an expression asking for an explanation.
She straightened her up and stretched out her chest.

“Anyway, the person who told me the story seems to have some prejudice against me.
Those two things happened independently of me.”

“Separate? Didn’t Count Serado get in trouble because of your quarrel with Lord Masterson?”

That’s how it seemed.
She was thinking about who would have said that to Her Highness the Queen Mother.

“I can’t say we quarreled.
I just told Lord Masterson not to bully a child younger than himself in public.”

“Young kid?”

“A girl named Lauren Leeds, sponsored by Lord Masterson.
She was holding his arm until she bruised her.
Couldn’t that be called discipline?”

She would rather be whipped in the calf or slapped in the palm of her hand in a place where there were no people, but catching her with a bruise on her arm couldn’t be called discipline or punishment.
When punished, the emotional part must be excluded.
You should get scolded because you did something wrong, and you shouldn’t get scolded for hurting someone’s feelings.
The Queen Mother was impressed by her words.
It seemed she didn’t like what she was saying, but she couldn’t help it.
She kept talking

“When you point it out to someone, you don’t know whether the person who pointed it out will accept the point or attack others for being unfair.
It is unfortunate that Lord Masterson chose the latter, but it is not my fault.”

Then, a smile appeared on Her Highness’s face, the Queen Mother.
She was always like this.
After throwing some accusations at her, she would feel better if she passed them off a little shamelessly.

“How is it, Count Burns? Do you think Eugene is right too?”

Elliot, who had been watching what was going on, quickly replied to Her Highness’ words.


“You must have been in trouble because of this child?”


Elliot put on a look that he didn’t know what she was talking about.
And when Her Highness the Queen Mother opened her mouth as if to explain, he spoke quickly.

“I have never had any trouble.
Lady Biscon is always right.”

Why was it her share of embarrassment? She clenched her fists with her hands resting on her lap to deal with the awkwardness.
As soon as they get out of there, she needed to give this guy some attention.
And ask him to not say such strange things in front of people.

The Queen Mother was staring at Elliot with a disapproving expression.
She looked at Eugene for a moment, then looked back at Elliot.

“You seem to be very close with Eugenie.”

Then Elliot looked at her this time.
He smiled at her and turned to the Queen Mother.

“We are getting closer.”

Again, a disapproving look appeared on Her Highness’s face.
Maybe that expression was the default expression.
She remembered that she had that expression from when she was very young and kept her mouth shut.

“I’m asking out of old age…”

The queen, who was so fortunate, immediately shut her mouth.
And she asked Elliot again.

“Where are you from?”

“It is the northern side.
It’s close to Izu.”

Elliot named the largest city in the North.
It’s a bit cold and rough there, so there weren’t many territories as big as the south.
The land was large, but there were few territories.
Thanks to this, there were no territories in the north that could be called cities other than Izu.
That meant that the only territory that people could know was Izu.

“Is it Izu?”

The Queen Mother seemed to think for a moment, then she asked again.

“Who are your parents? Are you originally from Izu?”
