I Became The Childhood Friend of the Obsessive Second Male Lead - Chapter 48
“I didn’t pretend not to know the Imperial language.”
“That’s funny! You were looking forward to her translation! I saw it all!”
Noel clearly remembered Alicia staring at Rieta in particular.
He doesn’t know why such a thing remained in his memory.
Alicia calmly continued to answer Noel’s interrogation.
“The Princess’ Imperial language is so outstanding that I’m just speechless.”
Noel was stunned once more, because that was ridiculous.
If the term “outstanding” was to be used, it would suit Alicia more than Rieta.
“Do you even hear that flat pronunciation?”
“The Princess’ pronunciation is not flat. It just has a little bit of a mix with Kingdom tones. It’s something she should be proud of, as a Princess of the Kingdom.”
He didn’t expect anyone to talk so seriously about nonsense like this.
“……Does it make you feel better to wrap her incompetence in pretty words?”
“I don’t think I’ve ever felt better when thinking about the Princess.”
Really. It really turned out to be like this.
By this point, Noel was scared to refute anything he said.
Alicia would try to praise Rieta in any way.
Just like a loyal servant.
“Anyway, to answer your question from a while ago, I’m looking for a job.”
“Yes, they said they were looking for someone to run errands at the military academy.”
He took an envelope from his arms and held it out to Noel.
When he opened it, there was a job advertisement cut from the newspaper.
As he had said, they were looking for a boy to run errands at the military academy.
It’s a great place to make money and settle down in a boarding room—.
It was also a job with many shortcomings, which couldn’t be ignored.
In the first place, the military academy was a rough place where the power of the rank remained.
It was already well known that the current errand runner was being unfairly bullied.
Even Noel had heard about it.
Therefore, no one was willing to walk to such a place unless they had some determination or circumstances.
“Huh…. has the Princess seen this, too?”
“No, I don’t want to make her worry about me.”
Seeing Alicia answer that way, It seemed he had decided to work there even after hearing all the rumors.
“Hey, if it’s work, aren’t there a lot of other places?”
“Not really. And it’s very rare to get accommodations and meals in places where minors can work legally.”
If such conditions were necessary, it would be better to start working for a noble family somewhere.
Noble families don’t treat their servants carelessly.
“And I thought it would be a good study opportunity for me, to see the knights up close.”
“If that’s the case, why don’t you take the test so you can be a cadet? We’ve got room and board.”
“I am from the Kingdom. It’s quite difficult to get into the Imperial Academy.”
The biggest problem was King Liz’s recommendation to study abroad.
Perhaps King Liz would not write such documents even if Alicia’s skills reached those of a Sword Master.
It’s going to be annoying.
If King Liz didn’t let him, someone of a similarly high status would have to back Alicia.
However, that was practically impossible, so Alicia gave up his opportunity to be a knight cadet.
—Of course, he did want to be a cadet, but the impossible would only stay the impossible.
“However, I heard… it’s quite rough there.”
As Noel mumbled anxiously, Alicia laughed a little.
“You don’t have to worry too much. Thank you, young master.”
“W-who’s worried about you?!”
Noel screamed incomprehensibly and clenched his gloved fist.
“You should try to get in even if it’s hard! Y-you’re not stupid!”
“Even if I were stupid, I still can’t do. I can only stay in the Empire this way.”
“Why the hell would you want to stay here?”
“As I’ve been far away from the princess, I’ve been feeling uneasy.”
Alicia sighed, brushing his chest. He was really worried about Rieta, so he didn’t know what to do.
By that time, even the dense Noel noticed it.
Rieta’s kingdom servant was out of his mind.
It was fortunate that the carriage just arrived at the military academy.
If Noel listened to more of Alicia’s ridiculously loyal rant, he would go insane.
