more.

“Don’t look so cute.
Come on, I’ll introduce you to one of my servants.”

His arm went around her waist and naturally escorted her.
She then met a middle-aged man who’d just had a conversation with Felix.
His well-groomed mustache was austere, and his eyes had a thoughtful look.
He looked different from the hearty old man in the village just from his physique.

“This is Richard.
He’s in charge of this house.
I’ve just had the whole place set up, so there may be some inconvenience.
If you have any problems, you can talk to him.”

“I am Richard, the butler.
Miss, I hope to make your acquaintance hereafter.”

“Butler…..
Miss….”

Her mind couldn’t accept words that diverged too much from her own.
Sheila was so stunned that she forgot to even said her name back.

“And this girl was assigned to be your personal maid.”

“My name is Lulu, the maid.
I’m honored to work at your side, Miss.
Please take care of me.”

A petite girl, looking a little frightened, stepped forward with her head lowered.
Her olive brown hair was pulled back tightly.
Perhaps she was younger than her, but Sheila could sense her hard work and liked her very much.

“Lulu is not yet capable of handling the exclusive duties of the young lady, but we’re short on staff.
I’m sure there’re many things that she’s not fully capable of doing, but I would appreciate your kind cooperation.”

Richard’s words finally brought Sheila back to her senses, and she shook her head with all her might.

“Umm… I’m not a lady at all.
Oh, my name’s Sheila Danau.
Please take care of me too.”

When she managed to finish introducing herself, struggling with the unfamiliar honorifics, Felix tapped her lowered head.

“You shouldn’t bow to the servants, because it’s rather embarrassing for them.
Also, you should practice honorifics, but you don’t need to use them in your daily life.”

After saying this, he quickly gave instructions to the gathered servants.
It was hard to believe that he had been living in the countryside just a few days before, seeing how accustomed he was to order people.

“….
Felix is really something, huh?”

“I’ll tell you about it eventually.
When everything’s ready.”

It was a question that was expected to be brushed off, so Sheila didn’t seek further answers.

Lulu casually carried the luggage that she brought.
She felt apologetic and tried to decline her help, but Felix reminded her that it was their job to do so.
It was a way of thinking that Sheila didn’t understand.

Something suddenly tumbled out of her packing bag.

“Ah!”

It was a beautiful button that Felix had given her.
From the center, where a blue stone was buried, there were layers and layers of golden petals.
Countless jade-colored stones were decorated to fill the gaps between the petals.

Although she was often said to lack femininity, Sheila liked sparkly things as much as anyone else.
When she was a child, Felix had a button that was so delicate and beautiful that when she stared at it, her kind brother gave it to her with a smile.
Since then, this button had been Sheila’s treasure.

She hurriedly chased after the button that kept rolling away, but it slipped under a chest as high as her waist.

“Oh no, my brother’s button is…”

“Ah, the one I had no choice but to give you because you insisted on wanting it.
I didn’t realize you still had it.”

Although there was a slight difference in her recollection, she pretended not to hear it.
Leaving that aside, as she rolled up her sleeves to somehow pick up the buttons, Lulu moved quickly.

“Please leave it to me, Miss.
I’ll pick it up.”

As soon as she said that, she lifted the chest in a single motion.
It was as if it weighed nothing.
Lulu, despite her appearance, seemed to have tremendous strength.

Sheila’s cheeks flushed as she held out the button with a smile.

“Lulu is amazing.
I should learn from you and build up my arm strength.”

Lulu’s eyes blinked in surprise at Sheila’s excitement.

“….
I think Miss Sheila is the first person I’ve ever met who wasn’t frightened by my ability.”

“What? It’s not scary at all, you know? As someone who aspires to be a knight, I envy Lulu.”

“Well…”

Lulu, who was shy, looked somewhat happy.
Sheila was happy as well and laughed along with her because she had very few like-minded female friends.

“….
She is a very unique young lady.”

“Yes, that’s right.”

Richard, who had somehow tried and failed to express himself euphemistically, was slightly perturbed by the reply, even though he must’ve muttered it in his mouth.
Moreover, it was Felix, the owner of the house, who listened to his mistake.
Richard turned his head down in shame.

Felix was unconcerned and chuckled.

“For me, I don’t want that part of Sheila to change, so Richard and the others will have to get used to it.”

Felix gave his instructions with a mixture of laughter, but suddenly he pondered.
He looked to the old butler and whispered to him hesitantly.

“However, it’s very troublesome for a cute little sister to become muscular.
If Sheila is trying to over-exercise, I want Richard to do everything in his power to stop her.”

“….
Miss would do that, wouldn’t she? I will keep that in mind.”

Richard accepted the secret order from the Lord in a very serious tone.
