The Stuart Family’s Drawing Room [Part 1]
Anyhow, they couldn’t let His Majesty the King wait too long in front of the mansion gate, so Leonard ordered the servant to guide the guests to the drawing room.
They made up an excuse for the troublemaker Emma that she was still unwell, and only Leonard and Melsa went to welcome the King with a vessel bow.
By the way, this drawing room was also a storage room where all the expensive-looking furniture and artworks that came together when they bought the mansion were put.
Given that it’s a palatial mansion, the room was not only large but also full of furnishings whose quality wouldn’t lose to the royal castle.
So no one usually approached it except for cleaning.
The Stuart’s mansion in the royal capital, which they bought with a large sum of money, has all of its interior other than the drawing-room transformed into a simple design, just like their mansion in Palace.
To make this family who had lived in poverty for too long had somewhere they could feel at ease even if it’s just a little, the things they didn’t need (luxury items) and things that are bad for the heart (luxury items) were all stuffed together in the rarely used drawing room.
In this drawing room that had become gorgeous and luxurious as a result, His Majesty the King and Imperial Prince Tasuku were currently sitting on a super luxury sofa, one of the ornaments in this “storage room.”
Behind the King and the Imperial Prince were ten or so diplomats, including Oliver, who were standing by drenched in sweat.
The sofas in the drawing room were all covered with finely embroidered fabric made by Leonard to keep them clean, but it was, of course, Emma Silk.
The Stuart family always forgot about this fact, but a cover made of Emma Silk was much more valuable than the many furnishings in the room.
As even the King hesitated for a moment before sitting, the diplomats didn’t dare to sit on it.
Not only that, they also couldn’t bring themselves to touch the served tea because the tablecloth was a lace fabric made of Emma Silk with a delicate pattern (Leonard’s work, time taken to finish: 25 minutes).
The diplomats’ experience on international exchange wasn’t little, but it could be said that this was the first time a drawing room had made them this nervous.
Over at this side, after the King dismissed their bow and introduced Imperial Prince Tasuku, Leonard started feeling anxious because the difficulty of fooling the other party shot up inexplicably.
He had lightly thought he could just say some perfunctory stuff since the other party was from a foreign country he didn’t know well, and it would work out somehow.
The arrival of some Kingdom people was really unexpected.
Leonard already lost his confidence to skillfully deceive them.
His only hope, Melsa, had been in a bad mood from the moment he saw Oliver.
They had really been on bad terms since back then.
“You must be surprised by this sudden visit without any prior notice, right? Actually, I wanted to come alone, but it turned out like this.”
His Majesty the King started speaking in this solemn mood.
After hearing that Emma collapsed because of his action last night, he felt so sorry and worried that he couldn’t stand still, so he pushed his work to the two princes as he planned to visit Emma.
But right when he was about to leave the royal castle, he was found out by the Imperial Prince and the diplomats.
“Your Majesty, if you had ordered me to come, I would have visited the royal castle immediately…”
Why? did the King move personally? Leonard also wondered about that during the coup d’etat.
