The Villainess Does Not Reflect! - Chapter 6.2
They say this is the demon world.
If so, is my world called the human world? but it’s an easy expression to understand.
The man rested one elbow on an ill-fitting chair, further making his sloppy posture even more sloppy.
“May I ask your name?”
“No need. Get the hell out of here, little girl.”
The man waved his hand in a flutter, as if to ward off a noisy insect.
I widened my eyes. I was surprised.
This was probably the first time I had ever met someone with such lack of courtesy.
It was also the first time in my life that I had ever been called a “little girl”.
“Little girl” is a derogatory term for a young girl. The man looks about the same age as my brother, but Clive, the vampire, seems to live a very long time, so he may be much older than he looks.
That’s why I’m the little girl
This…Duchess Lydith Annemaria, is a little girl.
I involuntarily looked at the man with half-lidded eyes.
“You must be mature enough to call me a little girl, but you can’t even say your own name. Or is that the kind of education that demon people receive? This world is not so bad, is it?”
I thought sincerely, so I decided to teach the demon tribe the importance of greetings.
The man squints at me and his mouth twists into an even tighter glare.
If he thought that a glance alone would deflate me, he was mistaken.
I looked back at him with my chest puffed out.
If you’re angry, just express it in words. It’s arrogant to think that a glance or an attitude will get through to someone.
If you’re not close to someone, you don’t need to be concerned about the feelings of someone who doesn’t have the slightest sense of decency.
“….Gilbert. Gilbert Jules Heinzolde.”
“Jules Heinzolde was my predecessor’s name. Gilbert is my name.”
I tilt my head. I don’t know what that means, but it seems that Gilbert is the man’s name.
Now that I know his name, I decide to greet him properly.
“Gilberto-sama, how do you do? My name is Lydith.”
“I don’t know what you want, but this is a place where humans don’t need to come. I don’t know what Clive is up to either.”
Gilbert said with a sigh, looking very annoyed.
I put my heavy bag on the floor, picked up my skirt and thanked him. I hope Gilberto will learn what a greeting looks like when he sees my refined and wonderful mannerisms.’
“Is Master Gilberto the king of the demon tribe?
“If not, then what are you?”
I have asked Clive to send me to the king of the demons and he would never go back on his word, so I assumed that Gilbert was royalty or a demon of similar status.
When I asked him for confirmation, he wrinkled his brow in annoyance.
“Please answer properly. This is a very, very important confirmation, okay?”
“Why do I have to answer your questions?
“Is it not a simple matter for you, Gilbert-sama, to answer a question from a little girl like me?Or do you mean to say that it would take a life-and-death effort to answer?”
“…..The previous king, Yule Heinsolde, has already gone to sleep. I’m just a prince.”
“Well, that’s okay.”
I only understand half of what Gilbert means, but I know that he is a prince anyway, so I cross my arms in front of my chest and smile.
Once the confirmation was complete, all that remained was to fulfil my objective.
He was coarse and unmannerly for a member of the royal family, and his speech was rough, but perhaps that is the way it is with the demon tribe.
“Gilbert-sama, I have come to offer myself to you. ”
“Huh?….. What are you talking about?”
“I mean, I came from the human world to marry you, that’s all.”
At my offer, for some reason Gilbert covered his face with both hands and held his head.
Does that mean that there are other candidates? It is true that as the prince of a demon tribe, it is only natural that he would have ten or twenty wives, starting with his main wife and then his concubines.
Even if there is no vacant position for the main wife, and I am welcomed as a concubine, my charm and cleverness will enable me to stand at the top of the heap. There is nothing wrong with that.
“You, too, have the habit of humans and saying the same thing as the women of the demon tribe…!”
Gilbert shook his head.
I don’t know what it was about, but I was appalled that he didn’t quickly take me, the first beautiful girl to visit him in a thousand years, as his wife.
