I Became The Childhood Friend of the Obsessive Second Male Lead - Chapter 47
Noel took courage to speak out the first line.
To that perfect kingdom greeting, Alicia replied with a welcoming smile.
“Yes, how are you?”
Noel clenched her fist, saying, ‘Good!’
Somehow, he felt like he had climbed the first steps to becoming a Kingdom language master.
The question soon followed.
“It’s, it’s a nice day.”
“Yes, it’s a lovely day.”
Perfect. Noel wanted to kiss this wonderful dictionary.
But now, it is my turn to say the following sentence.
“How are you today, are you nervous?”
“It’s good. And you?”
And now he’s even answering questions from the Kingdom!
‘What a genius I am!’
At this rate, he would soon be talking to Rieta in the Kingdom language.
Now, it was time for a more difficult conversation.
First of all, he wanted to ask why Alicia wanted to go to the military academy.
However, it was not a phrase included in ‘Making friends in the language of the Kingdom.’
So he had to go through the words one by one and compose the sentence himself.
“Uh, um, military school…the reason?”
He clumsily stammered out the sentence.
But he wasn’t sure if he had chosen the right vocabulary.
Oh, he had failed.
As evidence, Alicia was looking at Noel with a face that said he knew nothing of the Imperial language.
However, Noel decided to try a little harder.
Even if just for himself, who had told Rieta “don’t worry” before.
“Uh, military school……? Moving. Um……how do I read it?”
While he struggled with the stranger from the Kingdom and the language, good advice came just in time; in the Imperial language.
“Yes, you can read it like that. Young Master, it seems you are speaking the Kingdom language for the first time, but your pronunciation is quite good.”
“Oh, really? I’ve heard that no matter what language I learn, I always manage to get pronunciation quickly.”
“The problem is vocabulary and grammar.”
“Yes, that’s right.”
“Now, I think you’re trying to ask me ‘why am I visiting the academy?’ in the language of the Kingdom.·”
“Ah! I see.”
Noel slapped his knee and quickly followed Alicia’s Kingdom language.
“Why are you visiting the academy?”
“Okay. Would you like to correct the pronunciations a little bit and try again? ‘Why are you visiting the academy?’”
“Why are you visiting the academy?”
His pronunciation was natural even on his first try, Noel admired. Ha, he really was a genius.
He’ll have to let Rieta hear his wonderful pronunciation later.
Wouldn’t it be surprising?
He thought Rieta would look at him with her eyes round, which made him smile for some reason.
Noel was in the middle of a pleasant thought.
When He realized something strange.
Noel looked up and straight at Alicia.
Alicia blinked his eyes as if he didn’t know the Imperial language, so Noel forgot his gentlemanly manners again in a tearful mood.
He ended up ‘pointing’ at Alicia again.
“Why do you look as if you don’t know? You’re great at speaking the Imperial language!”
“I’m not praising you!”
“Is that so…?”
Alicia lowered his head slightly, as if ashamed.
“I think I misunderstood. Young master said, ‘You’re totally good’, so I thought you were praising me.”
Noel was shocked, so he opened his mouth following his pointing finger.
Is it a habit of the people of the Kingdom of Liz to pretend that they don’t know the Imperial language only when they are at a disadvantage?
“Actually, it hasn’t been long since I started learning Imperial, so I’m lacking a lot.”
“Lacking? That’s not enough?”
“I’m just as good at pronunciation as the Young Master. My vocabulary and grammar are still at a toddler’s level.”
What nonsense he’s talking like a toddler! It is completely amazing!
Noel dropped the kingdom dictionary next to him.
Somehow, he felt it was a little unfair that he had tried so hard.
If he’s good at speaking in the Imperial language, he should have let him know…
Noel realized something strange.
“Why are you pretending that you don’t know the Imperial language in front of the princess?”
It was okay for Rieta and Alicia to talk excitedly about words they didn’t know.
The problem was that Rieta’s interpretation skills were so poor, that Noel’s story ended up not being interesting at all.
