Chapter 11: A Day in the Life of the Ractos Household (As seen by the butler).

 

 

Good morning.

I am the butler who serves the Ractos household, my name is Welt.

When I started to serve the Ractos household, the previous head of the household, Diebold-sama was still alive.

 

Since I had known Grid-sama since he was an infant, I don’t have the slightest doubt towards the Ractos household due to the prejudices everyone has towards him.

I had already gotten use to the face of the current master, Grid-sama. Even though everyone else who saw it would be scared.

Well then, let’s just quickly move on.

So, as the title of this chapter implies, I will present how my master starts his day. Just one common day in the Ractos household.

 

For the Ractos household, there were several servants, but compared to other dukes households, it was a small number. In fact there were so little that you could count the number of servants using both hands.

Of course, there was a reason for this…

The number of people who were not scared of master’s face were few inside this country.

Several years ago, there was a servant which disrupted the work routine by getting knocked out. It was an employee that was hired from outside for a one day job, but after they saw the master’s face, they cried and fainted. After that incident, master secluded himself to his room for three days. It became a big accident.

The damage goes without saying.

The kingdom’s financial state became messed up and went into disarray.

In order to prevent the same mistake twice, the Ractos household servers were now being managed by the kingdom (Mainly by the prime minister).

 

Oops, I went a bit off topic.

For the several servants we have, in the morning, after they confirm their work for the day, they get straight to work preparing breakfast. Liliana-sama then wakes up from her sleep.

Ractos’ wife, who’s hobby is cooking, wakes up early by herself and can be found in the kitchen cooking.

And about that, I had already said to her many times that she should let the servants do that job.

 

[ Its no good you know ~. The only one who may have the privilege to cook food for my dear husband is me. I will not hand the task to anyone else. Okay~.]

 

Because of that, all the servants instead supported her when cooking meals.

It has already been years since they married, I really think that it is charming that they still love each other as much as a pair of lovers. The scene right now, perhaps in others eye’s it would look as if a witch tried to give a love potion to a master.

 

[ …Good morning ]

 

The next one to come out from their bed is the master of the house, Grid-sama.

Since Grid-sama is not a morning person, it seems that he is still not completely awake yet.

 

[Oh my, my husband, you still have that sleepy look in your face, you know.]

 

Said Liliana-sama, turning her head to face Ractos-sama with a smile.

She comments about Ractos-sama still having a sleepy looking face, but at a glance, his face actually looks as if he is about to murder someone.

Of course, I would never say this aloud.

 

[… Good morning]

 

The next one to come out from their bed is the young master, Jake-sama.

He is also like master, weak in the morning. He still looks like he is dazing off.

 

[Oh my, even Jake has that sleepy face… fufu, like father like son~ ♪]

 

Eh, That is true, Liliana-sama

Especially the fact that both of them have eyes which look like they were about to kill a person. They were like two peas in a pod.

Nako-sama who coiled herself around Jake-sama’s neck also made a face as if trying to search for her prey.

They would then take a seat at the dining table and wait until Liliana-sama finished preparing her meal. In the meantime, Ractos-sama and the young master would wait there until they woke up completely. All the while making vague conversation.

Well, judging from their facial expressions, it looked as if they were planning to kill someone. Even though they were not.

And as soon as breakfast is ready, Erza-sama is getting up from her bed.

 

[Good morning]

 

Erza-sama , I am sure that there would be someone who would think that Erza-sama is a weak person due to waking late, but she is different from the males of the family.

Erza-sama is almost always relaxed anytime she isn’t wearing her armour.

 

Everyone took a seat on the table arranged by the servants. They begun serving the food which was made by Liliana-sama. Breakfast with the whole family had already become a tradition within the Ractos household for generations.

It was a tradition encompassed by the whole family.

Even though the scene before my eyes would be called family love, it would be more correct to describe it as bloodthirsty – full of schemes.

Inside my head, I like to play a game where I change their conversations into something sinister. (TL : butler is bored.exe)

 

Once they are finished with breakfast, Ractos-sama goes towards the royal castle to do his work, managing the financial affairs of the country.

 

[ Grid-sama. Take care] – Liliana.

 

[ Aah, I’m off ]

 

It was like a conversation between some newlyweds

Both of them had a wide smile.

But master… that face… It’s better for you to not show it outside, you know…

Additionally, it was a smile which spread fear. If someone with a weak heart looked at it, they would surely collapse.

 

As soon as the servants are done with cleaning up from breakfast, Jake-sama would take himself to the magic guild.

Since I don’t know much about magic, I didn’t know what kind of things the young master would do inside the magic guild. But I’ve been told that it is just an extension of what is being done at magic school.

There were many times where he came back late, I wonder what he really does there.

 

[ Jake. Will you come home late again tonight?]

 

[ I don’t think I will come home late. Well, after I finish I will take a stroll and look around. I don’t know what might happen after that ~ ….  *hehehe*]

 

I also think that because of the way he laughs, people also fear the young master.

Also, his wording seems to hide a lot of things too.

… I wonder if it is the influence of Diebold-sama. Diebold-sama’s style of speech is very similar after all.

 

After a short time passed, there was a rattling sound of metal clanking against metal.

 

『xdkfじゅjz■りjgd◇fz  ! ! 』

 

After a bit of waiting, the Miss turned up as usual.

While she is wearing her armour, her mood returns. She is usually talkative, but because she wore full plate armour, her face is fully covered. It made her voice reverberate inside the helmet, making it impossible for normal people to understand what she is trying to say. (TL : btw, it seems that heavy armour commander understand her way of talking Xd )

If someone was this for the first time, it would only look like someone was howling in rage since they wouldn’t be able to understand anything Erza-sama said. This is most likely the reason people fear Erza-sama.

 

[ My~ , Erza, today is a good morning eh?]

 

『gUふぉが▤jdな▪おをいあ;dんc! あs■lぢあflえあ ! ! 』(ED: Basically a line that means you can’t hear what she is saying. AKA muffled jap)

 

[ My ~ , Is that so. please be careful to not hurt yourself, okay~ ]

 

『■lkっ▪ぜおいあ◆い! ! 』

 

[ Yes ~. Take care ♪]

 

It seems that only Liliana-sama is able to decipher what Erza-sama says.

For me, I cannot understand anything other than [meal], [subjugation], [chop] and [I’m off].

 

Well then, other than  Liliana-sama, everyone in the house is going out. And it’s about time for us to prepare lunch.

As for lunch, we servants are the ones who prepare it.

 

After lunch, I will narrate how the Ractos household operates in the noon.

L. L.

This is fun, but it feels like an introduction overview so far. For sluce of life styke stories, I think it’s very important to show details in the conversations/dialogue and put a bitmore effort into the descriptions in order to be engaging… Well, I’llwait until more comes out before ai decide to criticize the author. Thanks for translating!

Lasiefo

there doesnt seem to be a protagonist
but still a nice story to read
enjoyed it so far
