My Sister Told Me to Give Up My Fiancé - 10
Chapter 10 Shopping?
「First, let’s buy necessary things for a human.」
The next day, when I was awake and still absentminded, Greed that came suddenly said so.
「Necessary things, is it?」
「That’s right. It’s inconvenient if only using things that are in the temple, right? I don’t really know, but for the time being, we’re going shopping in the city.
「If it’s about me, then please don’t worry about it. There’s no way I can bother Greed-sama…」
「Shut up. We’ve come this far, I’ll be troubled if you grow weak and die.」
If he says so, then I can’t oppose.
I’m being helped by Jill to prepare myself while thinking whether it’s okay. That said, I don’t have any cosmetics, so I just changed my clothes and had my hair tied up.
I always needed a lot of preparation when going out. I never thought that my heart can be at ease with just quitting the Duke’s daughter. I’ve been absorbed by my sister every day until now, but now I feel at ease.
When I got out of the temple, the sun was dazzling.
In front of the temple, somehow there is an unmanned covered wagon with a horse stopped. When I looked into the wagon, I suddenly lost my words.
It was because a large amount of gold and silver treasures were loaded on the simple wagon that usually used by farmers.
I look at Greed nervously, asking what his intention is.
「I heard that you need money to do shopping, I’m sure it’s sufficient if we have that much.」
I’m a former Duke daughter and I don’t know about common knowledge, but I know that these gold and silver treasures are a bit unsuitable for shopping.
According to my private tutor in the currency value lesson, one gold coin would allow a commoner’s family to live a full month.
「Greed-sama, that… if you enter the city with so much money, it might be attracting unnecessary trouble. Wouldn’t it be fine to bring less?」
「Unnecessary trouble? What kind of trouble?」
「For example, being targeted by a thief or being charged more than the price at a store.」
That said, I had never brought the money and go shopping by myself, so I couldn’t come up with a more specific example.
I wonder how ignorant I am. I have been studying every day to become the Crown Prince’s consort, but neither the kingdom’s history nor the manner course is useful anymore.
「Hmm. I can just strangle the thief to death and I can just threaten the shopkeeper to sell at a reasonable price, right?
Greed’s solutions were far from peaceful. If we do that in the city, we will soon get caught by guards as bad guys.
「Greed-sama, if you do such things in the city, you will immediately become a fugitive. If you get caught, you will be put in jail, and at worst, will be executed.」
When I timidly objected, Greed laughed at my opinion.
「In that case, I can just destroy the whole city. No problem.」
――Where is it?
I want to say it was full of problems, but I endured myself.
How to make this dragon understand human common sense?
When I was troubled, Jill that was preparing for my outing came to my side and laughed.
「Is there something funny?」
Greed looks at Jill unpleasantly.
Jill is my servant, so if something happens I, the master, must protect her.
I thought so and put myself on guard with preparedness for death. I know that it’s ridiculous for a human to go against a dragon, but I couldn’t abandon Jill who was kind to me.
But in the end, my determination was futile.
After her laughter settled down, Jill say this in an unusually low voice,
『That damn Greed, he has been shut himself in the mountain for hundreds of years, so he’s ignorant like that.』
Those didn’t seem to be Jill’s words. It was as if being spoken by a completely different person by borrowing Jill’s mouth.
「King of dryads, huh. Peeping is a bad hobby.」
Apparently, the laughter was not from Jill, but from the king of the dryad. Since it was sudden, I had no choice but to watch the interaction between them.
「It’s not peeping, this person is part of my body. The dryads in this forest are all my root divisions.」
「What a noisy old geezer. Just keep quiet.」
「If I’m an old geezer, then you’re a great grandfather. If you’re that ignorant, you’ll only humiliate that girl if you go to the town.」
That ridiculing voice seemed to be pleasant from the bottom of his heart. And to that, Greed’s eyebrows’ wrinkle becomes deeper.
「Excuse me! King of dryad-sama, please suppress your feeling. There are no such things as……」
I took the courage to cut into the conversation even while thinking I’m not in the position to say it. That was because I couldn’t bear it if Greed being abused more than this.
