Let’s Go Home [Part 1]
After Economics class is over, the three siblings and Joshua walk back home.
Emma’s belly still feels very full, and her digestion can’t keep up.
Going over one’s stomach limit has a great price.
In the second year and above, students can take one more class in the afternoon.
This year, the three siblings and Joshua only take three subjects a day.
On the way, they meet the twins, who are the same first years, and decide to go home together.
It looks like the twins choose the San Cross language class from San Cross country, which has a close relationship with their territory.
“The San Cross language class was fun, huh, Caitlyn.”
“The San Cross language class was fun, Catherine.”
Foreigners rarely come to Palace, so it was a subject the three siblings uninterested in.
“How to say “Hello” in San Cross?”
Because the twins are talking about it happily, Emma asks.
” “It’s “Luckle,” Emma-sama.” “
The twins answer energetically.
“Then, what’s “Thank you”?”
” “It’s “Luckle,” Emma-sama.” “
“It’s the same?”
” “Yes! The literal translation for “Luckle” can be “hello,” “thank you,” “understood,” “it’s nice,” or “awesome!” It has a lot of meaning, Emma-sama.” “
The twins reply with a long sentence amazingly synchronized.
“That’s… convenient? I guess? Then, how to say “Sorry”?
” “It’s “Rockle.” “Rockle” also has various meanings.
It can mean “sorry,” “goodbye,” “no, thanks,” “the worst,” or “did you gain weight recently?”” “
What is this foreign language… Even George, who was devastated by English in our previous life, starts to get interested.
“Um, then, how to say “Did you lose weight recently?” in San Cross?”
” “That’s also “Luckle,” George-sama.
We got curious about the San Cross language because San Cross people keep saying “Luckle” and “Rockle”… It seems they can pretty much converse with each other with just those two words!” “
The twins, who are always confused whenever they see San Cross people conversing in their territory, are happy because they can finally understand them.
“That’s true, the only San Cross words my interpreter taught me were “I will buy” and “I won’t buy,” but “I will buy” is “Luckle” and “I won’t buy” is Rockle.”
“As expected, Joshua-sama knows a lot, huh, Caitlyn.”
“Joshua-sama knows a lot as expected, Catherine.”
Joshua was taught those two words when he was exporting Palace silk to that country.
The Stuarts family always leaves the sales to the Rothschild family, so the three siblings have no clue about it.
“Palace silk is “Luckle,” isn’t it, Caitlyn.”
“Palace silk is “Luckle,” Catherine.”
The twins seem to be giving a compliment (?), so the three siblings together reply with “Luckle!” (thank you).
They somehow manage to understand it.
When they leave the academy’s main gate while chatting with the twins, they see many carriages are parked in front of it.
They finally understand why the main gate has such a wastefully wide empty space.
According to Joshua, carriages cannot enter the academy without permission, so students whose homes are far, or sons and young ladies from high-ranking families will ride the carriage that comes to pick them up right after leaving the main gate.
Joshua’s store is 10 minutes away by walking, and the Stuart family’s mansion is another 10 minutes from there, so they are commuting to school leisurely by foot.
If it’s Minato in her previous life after she got her license, 20 minutes by foot is definitely a distance she will go by car.
But a young body can definitely walk that distance without difficulty.
When the three siblings thought about the labor needed to prepare a carriage, they chose to walk without hesitation.
The number of servants who have served the Stuart family from before and the newly hired in the royal capital are not many, so the three siblings feel sorry for increasing their work.
“We live at the dorm, so I guess we part here, Caitlyn.”
“We live at the dorm, so we part here, Catherine.”
The twins stop in front of an intersection.
The siblings and Joshua will keep walking straight to the main street.
” “Then, everyone.
Until next time, Rockle.” “
The twins lift the hem of their skirts and lower their heads slightly.
Gets that that “Rockle” means “goodbye,” Emma reply to them the same way.
Until next time, Rockle.”
“Be careful on your way home, Rockle!”
“See you tomorrow, Rockle!”
Each of them says “Rockle” and part there.
When they used the word, it didn’t feel out of place, so it’s fun.
While watching out for carriages, they walk through the main street and enter the shopping district where many fashionable shops lined up.
Seeing that Palace’s noble sons and Robert bought the present for Emma from this shopping district, academy students must often visit here.
The store Joshua’s in charge of is in the prime location on the main street, so they can clearly see the big three-story store.
“Joshua’s store is almost completed, huh.”
George mutters a little apologetically while looking at Joshua’s store.
It’s still under renovation now, but the first and second floors will be used as the store, and the third floor is set up for Joshua’s living space.
The store used to sell Palace silk, one-horned rabbit fur, and the like, but after it was entrusted to Joshua, the products got completely changed.
At first, it was supposed to be completed when the academy started, but Emma…
“If there’s a cafe with delicious sweets on the way home from school, I will probably stop by every day.”
With just one sentence from her, Joshua hurriedly increased the cafe space on the second floor, and because of that, the renovation couldn’t make it in time.
The store is scheduled to reopen next week.
Joshua, who supposes to be as busy as a spinning top, says, “How about going for a cup of tea?” and invites them to come.
But, after this is Joshua’s time for work, and his employees are waiting for his instructions.
So the siblings will pass today as they don’t want to disturb his work.
“That’s a shame.
Well, come by anytime.
I will wait for you with lots of tea and snacks prepared.”
Smiling, Joshua waves his hand and says, “See you tomorrow, Rockle!”
Emma was looking forward to buying and eating snacks on the way home, but her stomach still feels very full even after they part with Joshua, so she just goes straight home obediently.
They keep going on the main street, leaving the shopping district and entering the nobles district where many big mansions stood out.
Residences for nobles without territory who work at the royal castle and nobles whose territory is near the royal capital are built here with a far distance between each house.
The three siblings walk a little into a small road from the main street and arrive at the gate of the largest mansion in this nobles district.
They stop for a while in front of it and sigh.
The mansion arranged for their living in the royal capital matches the income of the Stuart family, and it is really luxurious.
Their house in Palace has a big garden, but the building itself is small and cozy.
Moreover, they sold everything they could sell, and it looked like a ruined mansion, so they find it hard to get used to the gap.
They recovered thanks to the Rothschild family’s ability, but their living style hasn’t changed much until now.
They were poor for too long to live lavishly.
In the end, they didn’t even buy back any of the things they’ve sold for the reason of “We don’t really use it, right…”
The three siblings once again sigh at the large gate standing in front of them.
“It’s huge no matter how many times I see it.”
“Will we get used to this someday?”
