Some Time Between Father and Son. (Part 1)

Inside the royal castle.

 

Grid-ractos here, just taking a breaking as today’s work has been finished.

 

There was considerably less paperwork today than usual.

 

Usually I am buried in paperwork to the extent that I cannot move. However today, the paperwork only ended up covering the floor.

 

It wasn’t really bad that I could take it easy, but I felt like it somehow wasn’t enough.

Even though I was not His Majesty, I was assaulted with boredom.   

(TL : majesty is so bored that even grid-dono know about it xD)

 

“Oya, Administrator Ractos. Is the work for today already finished?”

 

A man walked towards me with a smile on his face.

 

It was Count Raul-Nizzet.

 

Just like me, he was also someone entrusted with financial management. Count Raul-Nizzet also knew that the rumour concerning my household was completely baseless. He is quite important as an administrative assistant.

 

Even his daughter is someone who is magically gifted as they are descended from a lineage of elite sorcerers.

 

Normally, he would have become part of the upper echelon of the Magic Guild. However, the prime minister knew that he had knowledge regarding finance, and he shed tears while pleading to the Count to serve as my aid.    

 

Although his peerage is lower than mine, it was my father Diebold that earned our family’s peerage due to a meritorious deed he performed during the war.

 

It was not something I earned with my own hands.

 

Because of this, I spoke with Count Raul as a friend without any concerns to our peerage. I beleive that Count Raul also shares this view.

 

He does . . . right?

 

“Count Nizzet, thank you for your hard work today. Today’s workload was quite light.” (Grid)

 

“ . . . That amount of work is light, eh?”

 

Count Raul’s smile became cramped.

 

Have I said something wrong?

 

More than that, I was quite jealous of Count Raul.

 

That face. That well arranged face that always had a gentle smile.  

 

Even though we’re from the same generation, he always gets showered with “Kya kya” from women and children.

 

Of course, it was a favorable shout.

 

In my case, it would be “Hiiiih!” or maybe “Kyaaaa!”. That’s it.

 

Of course, it was a scream of terror.

 

. . . I felt quite depressed.

 

“Ahem . . . well let us put aside talk of work for now. Right now, I would like to ask for an answer regarding that matter . . . you know . . .” (Raul)

 

That matter?

 

. . . Ah, the talk about the marriage interview between Raul’s daughter and my son Jake.

 

“If it’s about that, I cannot wish for more than that . . . However, I asked Jake-kun about it and he seemed to feel uneasy about it.” (Grid)

 

Jake has always been feared by girls his age after all. Even though he is from a duke’s household, there has never been any talk of a fiancee up to this point. Something like this would normally make him feel quite hesitant, right?

 

“No need to worry about that. After all, we also understand Jake-kun’s circumstances. Honestly, our house is also having quite a bit of trouble as well.”

 

Umu . . . it was Anessa-chan was it not?

 

If I’m not mistaken, she was isolated due to the peculiar magical trait she possesses.

 

While it was not to the extent of our household’s, she also had a characteristic that would raise misunderstandings if seen.

 

I wonder if they had a problem finding a fiance for her like we did for  Jake……

 

“Certainly, it is better to do this as quickly as possible. If this keeps up, it will be bad for both of us.” (Grid)

 

The bloodline of our household will cease during my son’s generation.

 

Erza?

 

Erza is already no good . . .

 

“Well then, the date will be fixed on . . .”

 

“Excuse me. Father, Count Nizzet.” (Jake)

 

It was a voice I was familiar with. It was Jake.

 

What an unusual sight for Jake to come to the royal castle.

 

“Jake, for you to come to the royal castle . . . has something happened?” (Grid)

 

“Well, there’s nothing that important. I also heard the two of you talking here. By the way . . . eavesdropping isn’t good you know?” (Jake)

 

Jake looked at the edge of the corridor and raised his voice.

 

Ah, a maid just ran away in panic.

 

Fufu. Is Jake embarrassed at the prospect of someone hearing about his marriage interview?  

 

It’s the only aspect of him that has remained childish.

thanks a lot

Standalone

Potential wife? I glad to know Jake finally found potential wife

Scipo0419

I’m actually kind of eager to see her perspective. Maybe she’ll actually really like him like how his mother loves his father.

Standalone

That will be best situation

Scipo0419

Of course, it wouldn’t be this novel if they don’t misunderstand each other first.

crakaz

What’s the bet she will turn out to be that girl he saved…

Scipo0419

Oh god, I didn’t even consider that! That’s highly possible.

Kami

Since the update no longer moving. Gonna instead put illustration here.
So this is Jake fiancee (Can tell already there’s also misunderstanding about her not only her unique magical trait)

dark_heero00

I’m sure that maid will spread rumours, 100% sure of it xD

thanghe

Basically of the conversation they have:
“Ehem… about that matter…”
“That matter huh? Jake is quite uneasy about it”
“Our side as well”
“Then let do it ASAP. Otherwise, It’s will be bad for us”

Yep… nothing to misunderstood here.

syukur pambudi muhadi

Let’s see what the rumors will be…

Dusty

>Erza is already no good
XD should a father be giving up on his daughter so easily???

The Fabulous

I wouldnt be shocked if she sleeps and bathe with the armor on.. Even if she gets married i doubt she will take off her armor..but i ship her with the captain

AnonymousX

The butler chapters mentioned she attends breakfast in normal attire and is all quiet and reserved. It’s only after she puts on the armor that she goes hyper genki (and unintelligible to everyone but family).

Bobolander

and captain.

KuRuuRuu

I wonder what kind of girl his fiancee will be~
If she also raise misunderstanding, won’t she be the perfect addition to complete the duke family’s terror?
Thank you for the chapter!

Kami

Since the update no longer moving. Gonna instead put illustration here..

KuRuuRuu

THEY ARE PERFECT FOR EACH OTHER!

Kami

I’m glad you like it XD
Also adding up for wonderful comment.
Here’s also Erza Ractos without her bulky black armor but in a elegant dress attire.
Don’t know which chapter but happens in Volume 2.
comment image
Damn gorgeous. She take her beauty from her mother.

KuRuuRuu

Thanks for the illustration! Where did you find them?
Gosh we need to have an update for this~~~ XD

Kami

I was just in the neighborhood, scouring the novels I finished reading either completed or left none updated. I stumble upon this in finding illustrations from Google image…
So here’s a link
https://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=145802

Kami

You need to consult this to someone as seem no one would be picking this up as others mostly in another reincarnated nowadays..
This is truly a hidden gem and left forgotten sigh…
Though you could read in raws via google translate. Readable though.
Jake meeting his fiancee Anasee was in Chapter 36 I think…

KuRuuRuu

Hoho thank you! Got to see Grid’s face too hahahaha it’s so funny~

Yeah this is a very interesting and original story that it’s such a shame to be abandoned like this :'(

Kami

Yeah really shame. It has more misunderstanding in it and that Prince XD would be like that state even told by the King his father that the Duke household is not a nest of human-form demons XD.
I mean Grid really looks he gonna murder someone with that face lol.
Her wife also reminds me similar to Albedo in Overlord. Not only the appearance though but also her immense love to her husband which she sees handsome. Well to everyone they’ll think absurd of her sanity. Same as expressing as well to mere mortals that but can’t think Sorcerer Kingdom Overseer Albedo infatuated loved to her an undead skeleton, Lich master (Lich for everyone in that world only thought so).

For Jake stature reminds me of Demiurge but only appearance though like he’s always plotting something XD

KuRuuRuu

Ooh now that you said it her evil look really looks like Albedo! Though I bet she’s purer than Albedo hahaha

And Grid.. we never get a fat ass evil looking noble as a MC, as they’re always on the side of antagonist, so these misunderstandings are really understandable~

Kami

I got the full house so expect illustrations coming up from me here even though long this not anymore updating. Illustrations in per chapter.
Starting from Chapter 2 from Grid first XD
So either upvote me or comment 🙂

KuRuuRuu

I will check it one by one when I have time~
Expect upvotes from me! 😉
Hope this will drive the translator to translate again hahaha

nai wa!

After reread their sentence for about 3 times, i suspect the maid will misunderstood their talk for a coup d etat

Syahmuda

Lol. That was true. And here the prince comes.

Dark1knight

That will simply be perfect, i look foward to that!

midori

thanks a lot—!
oh, y’all need an editor? i’m a proofreader, how do i apply?
anyway, lolol, so amusing! ohh, a marriage candidate for jake?! interesting! keke, i cetainly want to see them meet! i say, though, it’s still possible for erza! well, let us wait and see!

1_chan

Thanks for the chapter! Hmm…what is this “special” trait the fiancee has? Has to be something drastic for people to avoid getting married to her ://///

The Worldwide Bastard

necromancy im sure…

silicondruid213

That would be epic, I just hope she isn’t a tsundere Jake isn’t really equipped for those.

Kami

Kensei Seraph - Terran Ghost

Thanks for the chapter.

Little Wonder

It should be a fun marriage meeting… after of course they deal with any fallout of people hearing their conversation.

Kami

Paps

I am sure that the maid run away because she believe that father and son were cohersing the count to give his daugther to them. hahahahahahaah!!!!!!!!!!! I can see a new rumor emerging

AnonymousX

I’m guessing that the fiancee might be like Liliana; she probably loves a sinister-looking man, and probably also has some bizarre pet or ability that scares off other possible suitors.

Kami

Thanks for the new chapter!

CJ Carlet

thanks for the update

Russian Otaku

Would be amusing if the marriage goes through and the girl loses her sweet demeanor and goes whips and chains on Jake.

Why you go all titanic on my ship….Jake/Prince? Ahhhh, my fujoshi heart done broke!!

The Worldwide Bastard

“have you thought about “That?”

“indeed”
“we should set it up before problems (pest) arrives”

Vorgaeroth
