The Earl’s Bad Wife - Chapter 22.2
Translator: Lady Black
Highly Unedited Version
Suddenly everyone who was candidates for engagement offered a cancellation. A woman asked a man why and the man said that he had someone they like. Without apologizing, she was dismissed in the options and the woman was criticized for being abandoned.
That woman was a friend of Hermina.
The moment she heard her story, Hermina went to the man who broke off their engagement and asked him to apologize.
However, he refused and made Hermina angry and then she asked for a duel.
“the duel took place in the condition that if Hermina lost she would lie low and if the man lost he could apologize to his ex-fiance?”
The result came out and Hermina beat him.
After apologizing to his ex-fiance, she felt that she would never marry a man of higher rank.
She taught Hermina swordsmanship so it can’t be helped.
“The thing was that it wasn’t just about making a fuss.”
Bitterly quarreling with the head of Marquis Shariberg, who was also a philosopher, drawing the attention of the second son of Baron Santellium, who was a tailor who takes an interest in craftsmanship. Pointing the third son of Amble, who had a hobby of playing in the fields. And even bringing sweets to the baker Levelote.
Her sister’s faces drew dark one after the other.
“Now you know why she wasn’t asked for marriage?”
When they listened to their father’s story, they bowed deeply.
The nobleman’s desire for marriage was social status and obedience.
Hermina seemed to lack obedience.
Her sister Bianca wasn’t satisfied and bitterly confronted their father.
“Wasn’t that because father’s not looking hard?”
“No, I already approached a lot–”
Father didn’t continue in the end but Bianca who understood awkwardly said ‘Ah…’
Apparently not only did they now came to her but about marriage, they refused to accept the offer.
“The main reason was that women like Hermina were unruly.”
The fact that their father tried to hide it became clear as Bianca point it out.
At last, their mother burst into tears.
She was sure. It was so sad when you couldn’t marry your beloved daughter. It must be an unacceptable fact.
Because they were sisters they gave Hermina knowledge and skills.
The eldest daughter Helk taught her sewing, she taught her swordsmanship. Also songs, Charlotte taught pastry skills. Cassandra taught a variety of knowledge, and Alexia gave the nature of love and the seventh thought too much high aesthetic standards.
Each one isn’t to look down upon, they’re special
However, that might’ve been not good for her to learn all the basics and raised her all on their own.
Eventually, she acquired ability to be equal to a man.
“I’m sorry to say but a man was a proud creature.”
Her father couldn’t say anymore as their mother was there. But she could understand what he wanted to say. No one wanted a woman as a wife who was as good as a man.
“I know how you gave her everything to protect her.”
They didn’t give knowledge and skills to her meaninglessly.
Now, this became an unbelievable story, but in the past, Hermina was a very quiet child.
She was so cute and they always make fun of her.
Hermina often crying bitterly at her failures.
They could protect her but she wondered as adults would involve their children’s problems.
Therefore they gave her every knowledge and skills hoping that this could be her root of confidence.
