“Oh, uh! Baron, the story of the migration, wow, could you let me take it?”
Mother Eliza looks at Anna who suddenly said talked scared. Anna’s older brother Marco, who was next to him, also had a surprised expression on his face.
Noein looks as surprised as the Elizas, but for him the situation was rather what he was aiming for. I just pretended to be surprised at the face according to the atmosphere of the place.
Noein noticed that Anna seemed interested in the story when Noein jokingly asked Eliza to relocate.
After that, he had a lot of small talk with Anna while waiting for food to be loaded at this store, but at that time he liked the story that she “opened up a new world by pioneering” and was interested in such a way of life. Noein also heard that he seems to have it.
In addition, she can also do work such as bookkeeping and product management. For Noein, who wants personnel who can handle clerical work and accounting, it is the most suitable material.
“Hey, Anna! What are you saying!”
“Mom, I’m really saying! I really want to go to the knight’s territory!”
“Shut up! Come on! Excuse me, knight, but can I talk with my parents a little?”
“Yes, it doesn’t matter.”
“Thank you. I’m sorry for making a noise in front of you … Marco, guide the knight to the store and serve tea.”
“Oh, I see, mom.”
Everyone who returned to the store for the time being. Eliza pulled Anna into the back of the store, and Noein sat in a business talk chair inside the store and waited.
Marco serves tea as directed by Eliza, but his expression is a little hard.
“Mr. Marco, would you like to talk a little?”
“Thank you. Please sit down.”
Marco sits in front of Noein with a stiff face.
“… If Anna really wants to move, will the knight take her?”
“That’s right. I heard she was able to read, write and calculate, and learned practical work at this store. I would be very grateful if she came.”
“That’s right …”
Marco does not try to make eye contact with Noein with a bitter face.
“Without Anna, wouldn’t this store be open? If so, it would be painful to pull her out.”
“No, that’s … I’m planning to take over this store originally, and there are other employees. I think it’s a little fluttering to fill the hole that Anna missed, but it doesn’t matter. Just … “
Marco seems to be against this story, even if there is no problem in practice.
Marco’s sister says she wants to move to a small territory in the woods that is still in the process of being cultivated, and even Noein, the lord’s aristocrat, wants her. It would be a complicated feeling for her brother. It is not easy to say “please take me”.
Even after Noein talked to him, Marco’s expression remained stiff.

Eliza pulled Anna to the store’s warehouse, leaving Marco to deal with Baron Arkvist.
“What are you going to do, Anna?”
“… I know that, because you’re not a fool to play around and say that.”
She sighs and answers to her stubborn expression.
I knew that Anna was interested in the way of life, “opening up a new world.”
When Anna was young, she was repeatedly asked to tell such a fairy tale, and even after she grew up to a certain extent, she was asked how to live such an adventurous way of life. she told him, “That’s a dream story.”
“Okay? This isn’t as simple as the knight you told me when you were little? You’re leaving Letovik and spending most of your life in the knight’s territory? The settlement is dangerous? There may be a lot of things and pains, right? “
“I know, but for me this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I can move to the territory of a gentle aristocrat like a knight and have him prepare a place to work with his abilities. I’m sure it’s a never-ending opportunity. “
Indeed, from Eliza’s point of view, Baron Arkvist looks like a good lord. He seems to be loved by his followers, and he doesn’t behave arrogantly just because he is an aristocrat. Rather, it is more polite than the commoners in that area.
If you send Anna to Baron Arkvist, you won’t be treated badly.
“Please, mom. I have only one life, so I want to live the way I want.”
Look closely at her eyes to confirm Anna’s determination. Anna also looks straight at Eliza without looking away.
As my mother Eliza says, Anna is an excellent child.
When I taught reading and writing calculations lightly, hoping that I could help the store until I got married somewhere, I absorbed more and more knowledge and eventually learned to manage the books. It is now as practical as the successor Marco.
It’s a little retreating, but it’s serious and the head turns quickly. I think I will be able to work well as a civilian under the aristocratic family.
A sense of security that it would be okay to leave the daughter to Baron Arkvist. It is a calculation as a business person that if Anna does a good job at the destination, she can have a strong connection with the aristocrats of the neighboring territory. And vague anxiety as a parent about sending an important daughter to a rural territory that is still under development.
Eliza, who had such various thoughts,
“… I understand. I’ll ask the knight about the detailed conditions, and if I’m satisfied with that, I’ll send you out.”
“Really !? Thank you, mom!”
“Wait. Even after asking the knight. It’s too early to rejoice.”
Eliza smiled unintentionally at Anna, who changed from her stubborn expression to a smile like a flower.

“I’m sorry to have kept you waiting, Your Excellency Arkvist.”
“No. I think I may consult with you in various ways.”
Noein smiles and replies to Eliza, who returns with Anna.
As she calls Noein with the official title of “His Excellency Arkvist,” she seems to be planning a serious discussion that is different from usual.
Eliza, who replaced Marco and sat in front of Noein, cut out the story with a mysterious look.
“… First of all, I firmly confirmed Anna’s intention. It seems that this child really wants to move to the territory of His Excellency. My parents may say this, but I think this child also has the ability to help under His Excellency. “
“Yes. I’ve talked to him many times and I understand that Anna is a wise and hard-working person. That’s why I’m happy with her decision and I’m happy to be in my territory. I want to welcome you. “
“Thank you … but I am also the parent of this child. I am wondering what the life of this child will be like in the future. Of course, I understand that your Excellency is very kind. But … May I tell you more about the conditions under which this child can be welcomed? “
“Of course, I don’t have any children yet, but I’m sure Eliza’s heart is thinking of her child.”
With that said, Noein talked about the conditions for welcoming Anna.
First, let her manage the finances and personnel of the Arkvist territory.
The first few weeks should be a trial period, and if Anna still wants to quit the migration, or if Noein feels that Anna’s abilities aren’t what she expected, return Anna to Letovik.
If there is no problem after the trial period, welcome Anna as a servant to the Baron Arkvist.
In the place of residence, a private room should be prepared and lived in Noein’s mansion, and if Anna finds a marriage partner, she can leave the mansion and have a house (the house is given by Noein).
When Noein finishes saying the conditions, Eliza, Marco, and even Anna in question have a poky expression.
“… Well, if there is no problem with my work, can I be welcomed as a servant? Will I be just a hired worker?”
“Of course. I’ll leave the important work of the territory. That’s natural.”
When Noein answered Anna’s question, she brightened her expression.
No wonder. It is unusual for a mere commoner to become a formal servant of an aristocrat. The invitation is due to the lack of human resources in the Arkvist territory, but it is a unique opportunity for Anna to succeed.
The servant is one step higher than the other commoners in the territory of the aristocrats he serves. As long as the child is respected as a vassal of the aristocrat and is not incompetent enough to perform his duties as a servant, his position will be passed on to the child generation.
Hearing the unexpected treatment, not only Anna but also her family Eliza and Marco show great joy. It’s only natural that some family members will start a servant family.
As with Yuri and the lords, it is becoming Noein’s usual practice to suddenly show unexpected favors and attract the other person’s heart.
“Then, is it okay if you can come to our territory under these conditions?”
“Yes! I will do my best!”
“That was good. What about Eliza and Marco?”
“Of course it’s okay. Thank you for giving my daughter the treatment I didn’t hope for, His Excellency Arkvist.”
“Thank you on behalf of my sister, Your Excellency.”
Thus, it was decided that Anna would come to the territory of Arkvist.
