I was Reincarnated and Now I’m a Maid - Chapter 23
Translator: Lady Black
Me with my dress on, and Primera-sama with her dress on.
The girl standing in front of me is really, really pretty, and she’s such a perfect princess that she gives the illusion that she’s glowing even though she’s indoors.
I stood in front of Primera-sama with a little bit of nervousness.
I’ve been making up my mind ever since I decided to make my debut in social circles.
Slowly, I take a lady’s bow.
“Your Highness, I congratulate you on your daily growth and enjoyment in an orderly fashion from your birth to now.”
“E, what’s going on, Julia?”
“As a nobleman and a vassal, I am pleased to see you.”
I repeat the words of the nobleman’s ritual.
This is not what I want to say either. But I can’t not do this.
The head butler was still in the room.
He must have sensed what I wanted to do and softly said something to the Primera-sama.
As soon as he did so, a sign of surprise came from the girl in front of me – and I heard her take a few deep breaths.
“The first princess of the House of Kularaum, Primera, has received the words of Julia, the eldest daughter of Viscount Vandeid. I now permit you to call my name.”
“Thank you very much, I’m very pleased to see you too.”
“…Sebas, step back.”
Well, the head butler is named Sebastian!
It’s super royal! So of course, this is also the high road, but his nickname is Sebas-san.
A very enigmatic old man, a craftsman with very refined movements, but his actual age is strange, no matter how many times I look at his resume, it says 73….strange, I don’t remember him moving like a 73 years old….
I could tell by the sound of the door closing that Sebas-san had stepped back.
As if to signal that, I looked up, and there was Primera-sama with an expression on her face, as if she didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
Was it hard to suddenly greet a girl who still wanted to be pampered, no matter how intelligent she was, from the baptism of a nobleman?
But only by doing this will she be able to obtain the right for me to mention her name in an official setting, which she wants.
Sebas-san is a witness.
“Happy birthday to you. The dress looks great on you. It’s so pretty, it’s really fairy-like.”
“Mother looks great, I wish I had such a grown-up dress!”
“Well, that sounds very mature, doesn’t it?”
“Un! I love the fluttery fluffy stuff, but I think that kind of smart stuff is really nice too! Will I be able to wear a dress like that when I grow up and dance with Dean Dayne-sama?”
“Fufu, yes. I guess so.”
“Yes! Dean Dayne gave me a necklace! Look! It’s an orange rose. He remembered me saying I liked it!”
“That’s good to know”
Primera, who speaks in rapid succession, looks like she was very happy to receive a gift from Dean Dayne.
It’s so cute. I’m sure Dean Dayne would be overjoyed to know that she’s this happy.
I’m sure he’d probably strike a fist pump.
“Speaking of which, do you think you can do something about Julia’s parents’ home?”
“Yes, thank you for your concern.”
“Well…If anything happens, my brother and I can act for Julia, right? I think we can do something about the money, too.”
“Well… no, Primera-sama, we can’t put such a burden on you!”
“No! I want to be of service to mother, too, can’t I?”
What is this girl, she’s so good. I knew it.
She said she would do it for me. For me!
I’m already so happy, I’ll play that part endlessly in my brain.
I hugged Primera-sama who came to me and patted her head, and she was very happy.
I’m sure I’ll be able to find a way to make my heart heal after being pushed around in the dance and my reactions being played around by Arder Saul.
“Julia needs more time to become a lady in waiting, don’t you? Is it going to take longer?”
“Yes, I am sorry. But I will certainly visit tomorrow morning when Primera-sama wakes up.”
“Un…Un, I’m glad. I’m sorry, I’m so selfish. I know Julia is busy, but I just felt so lonely.”
“No, Primera-sama has always worked hard. You can always say that you miss me in this way, it is alright with me. I would like to be with Primera-sama, too.”
“…Thank you, Mother. I love you, Mother!
Un, my angel is too good to be true.
I decided to give her a hug and love her to the fullest.
After that, I helped Primera-sama change her clothes and listened to her stories. I began to feel exhausted and fell asleep, when I noticed Primera-sama, with glazed eyes, saying, “Still a little more…”.
Primera-sama, you don’t have to be in such a hurry, I will serve you tomorrow and the day after tomorrow too as your maid-in-waiting.
All I need is a little bit more, just a little bit more afternoon and a half off!
The letter I got from the Rizil Chamber of Commerce gives me a good plan for paying off my debts, and they plan to recover some of it from the Talbot Chamber of Commerce if the gambling-related stuff gets out.
The Rizil Chamber of Commerce is the best in the country, but they’re not all-powerful – and we’ve been promised that we’ll be able to get information from the side from the Jenda Chamber of Commerce as well.
For now, I gently tucked Primera-sama into bed, thinking about the people I have to greet there for the first time in a long time since I’m supposed to visit the Jenda Chamber of Commerce tomorrow.
I looked at the girl’s face as she was peacefully breathing in sleep, and it was irresistible and just so cute.
I knew that no one was there, but I looked around for a moment.
“….Good night Primera. Have a good dream.”
I hoped that my daughter wouldn’t have bad dreams, like the ones you see in foreign dramas.
I kissed her on the forehead.
It was a little bit embarrassing.
Seeing her smiling happily, I felt very warm and fuzzy.
(Oh yes, I’ll bake a chiffon cake for Primera to eat at tea time tomorrow!)
I watched her sleeping face for a while – and then went back to my room to take off my unfamiliar dress and unfamiliar high heels to be free.
