7.) Go For It, The White Piggy Duke
I eat my breakfast in my room, alone with Charlote.
It’s a simple dish consist of boiled fish, bread, and a bowl of soup. In magic academy the attendant need to make their food by themselves.
She told me she will bring some food from the dining hall, but before she did I told her I want to eat the same as what she usually eat.
She is afraid the food she ate won’t fit my taste, but that’s absolutely impossible to happen!
[It’s so delicious Buhiiiii!!!!]
The taste is so-so,but is there any comparable thing rather than eating with the one you love?
NONESENSE! There are no such time Buhi!
Looking at my munching face Charlote see it in wonder. What is it, is there any food on my face?
[Slow-sama, you have changed]
[Yes, It feels like Slow-sama want to achieved something big and you put so much effort for it. That’s what I feel about Slow-sama lately.]
Charlote slowly putting her fork down and looking at me. Her every movement is so elegant. When someone see her like this they will understand she is not born as a commoner.
Uu, please don’t look at me with that expressionless ice goddess look. After entering magic academy Charlote and I only speak when there is something that needs to talk about. When i approach her more than necessary, it seems the wind blowing to her became stronger.
[It’s as if when I meet you for the first time, before Slow-sama became such a glutton]
Why is it before became a glutton?
I try very hard to remembered what happen that day.
Ah, I think it’s around my turning point moment. When it was my 8 years old birthday unexpectedly I was called by my father, he told me it’s about time I have my own personal Attendant. In exchange of Charlote he wanted to replace her with a well educated man to be my attendant.
But regretfully it is when my idiotic play start, i became a dumb useless pig that less than a servant.
The reason was I don’t want to get separated from Charlote, and because of my own planning at that time I become a useless person like today.
Living an unhealthy life, selfishly telling people to do something, became a glutton and in a year i became a splendid pig. Surely after that my father have given up on me.
Oh yeah that well educated man that should become my attendant, he become my little brother’s attendant.
The 8 years old me.
Before I have my wild imagination of loosing Charlote, the time I was called the wonder child of of Dening household and was called by so many other name.
The me at that time sought to be the head of Dening household with it’s rich region, and also my name will be know in entire Daris.
Perhaps it is what Charlote remember about me.
This is my plan to become a white piggy duke from the dark piggy duke.
I won’t hide it from her. But about me being transmigrated to this body I would never tell her.
[I saw a dream a week ago. It’s about when we met for the first time and about our future. It’s as if the god himself told me for what I was did is not good. It makes me wonder, did the path I choose all this time wrong?]
My memory from my past self looked just like a dream after all.
[I saw my own body in front of the mirror. I want to see did I really choose the wrong path?]
Charlote saw me silently. Her white skin is so beautiful holding a godly Beauty. I looked at her face which showing such seriousness hearing what I said.
[Then, what do you think I found?]
[…What Slow-sama found?]
Before I told her, I made a little space between us.
[A pig ready for it&
Charlote laugh outloud after hearing it.
[…..Fuu, then now. What are you aiming for Slow-sama? Do you want to try to take the seat for the head of Dening household again?]
It think if I join the competition for the head of Dening household now probably to late. Even if i use brute force it won’t work now. Myself is a taboo talk between the Dening family.And on top of that I don’t want to be bound by the thing called aristocracy.
[……To become a better version of me]
In the anime piggy duke even sacrifice his own life to become the lowest kind of human for the sake to get of from the obligation as a noble.
But I will aim a different path from before.
I will only looking at this Charlote in front of me.
[There is a wonderful pig in this world. Yes I want at least wanted to be evaluated like that by different country Buhi.]
I said that with the smartest look I can make.
Well,? I’m cool aren’t I.
[Fu, fufu….N-no, Please stop trying to make me laugh]
…..Ye-yeah! I make Charlote laugh! As I plan! I have seen her since we were a child, but the face she has now I haven’t seen it lately. It has been a while since we talk like this, since there was a line between us separating us.
But, there is a white piggy duke in Daris! At least my felling to be called as a good pig is true. Un, shouldn’t it human? NO no no.
[It seems I don’t have what it takes to be the head of the family, and i can’t freely choose my married partner if I become the head]
As the head of the Dening house he will be married for strengthening the bond against the empire the partner will be choosen between an influential neighbor noble’s daughter or will be married in to the royal family. But I don’t want any of that! I don’t care about political marriage, all I want is a marriage because of love!
Oh yeah by the way when I was a child I was engaged with a princess from a powerful country called Sarkista! But because i became such a pig it was canceled!
[Marriage? …..Slow-sama, do you have an interest for such a thing?]
[I do. That’s why I need to be a splendid man, only after that I will convey my feeling to her.]
I will say it to her directly.
……AA, isn’t it bad? Isn’t it what one called an indirect confession?
Charlote please don’t recognize it now! I’m still a pig now!
[…..I don’t know Slow-sama has someone he is yearn for. I think you will be more happy if it’s like that]
As she said that she send me a cold smile.
I don’t know why but I feel shiver on my spine.
[…..I, Is there anything I can help you with?]
Of course there is, please receive my feeling for you.
I want to say the person I yearn for is you, but I will say it latter.
First I need to become a better person first, and after that i’m sure it is okay to say I like her then.
[Of course I will troubling you about things]
[It’s no trouble at all, I’m not like the usual attendant. But for the sake of that……person Slow-sama yearns for I will do everything to make it happen. I’m Slow-sama’s attendant after all.]
Charlote is serious now.
Now that I think about it, I ask for help from Charlote, even thought the one I want to confessed to is her.
Eh, isn’t there something weird?
[Then Charlote. Untill the day I confessed to the person I love, become my attendant]
There is a chance if my feeling to her exposed we will get separated. Even though my father knew i became such a pig sometime he send someone to train me, as if still hoping for me to be the next head of the family. For that I deliberately letting the instructor told him I was in a point of no return by yelling things like, [Buhiii, I don’t want to learn martial arts buhiiiiiiii!!!], like that.
[As you wish—–Slow-sama]
Charlote with such seriousness hearing me and nodding to me—–.
At that day.
I vow to become a splendid man Appropriate for Charlote.
Till the day I will confessed my feeling to someone i love, Charlote will appropriately become my attendant.
[Slow-sama, Isn’t it the time for magic practice?]
[Oh yeah! Oh yeah Charlote! How about my uniform? The one with the smaller size?]
[I….I will prepared it in a bit!!!]
Seeing her to be that much vigor is really rare, even the perfume she prepared fall down from the table to bed.
There is a label on it [Hazardous material : Beware of powerful monster will approach you] written on it.
After seeing that, I remember an event from the anime.
[A-…..I forgot about the hero power up event]
