Chapter 35: The Orc Mother and Son Part 3
“How did things end up this way?” The Marquis held his head in misery.
The fruits in the orchard located within the mansion’s territory had been completely consumed long ago.
Before he knew what was happening, they had been bringing in large supplies of fruits from neighboring farms.
The source of the problem was Angelina and Endin.
In the past month, the farms have been ravaged by a disease that has been spreading over the trees, and their harvest was waning rapidly.
Even so, half the harvest of fruits were now settling inside the two’s stomachs.
“EーEndin. If you would use the power of your [Gift]ー”
Endin: “WHAT?! DーDad, you want poor helpless me to crawl around in the dirt?!”
Angelina: “HONEYー! Are you trying to dirty my poor Endin’s beautiful hands?!”
Marquis: (I don’t even understand what they’re saying anymore)
The Marquis rubbed furiously at his temples to ward off the oncoming headache.
“Just by touching the dirt a little bit, Endin, you’ll be able to eat more of your favorite fruits.” Endin: “What?! More?! Then dad, you can touch the dirt for me. Here, dad, let’s shake.”
“Why shake hands?” Endin: “If you touch my hands, then dad, you’ll be able to use my [Talent for Agriculture]!”
Marquis: (AS IF I COULDーー!!)
But though he wanted to scream at the top of his lungs, Angelina stood nearby. There’s no way he could ever cross her.
And being desperate with no other options, the Marquis headed to the Orchard without washing his hands.
There, he felt the dirt to see what would happen.
“How did things end up this way……..?”
His son, Lou Quain, who he thought was absolutely useless was actually an exceptional childーーthis is something he now knows very well.
“I never thought that he was using Alchemy to protect the farm’s harvests from diseases……”
Marquis: (That’s why there has been a successful harvest these last 10 years.)
But even if he knows now, it is too late.
His son is currently being harshly treated as a slave on a Pirate’s ship.
When spring comes, the Pirates will return to the port. They will arrive as their public face ー as merchants.
Marquis: (And with that opportunity, I will buy back my son.)
The Marquis was determined to do this.
Marquis: (I hope there will be fruits left in this territory by then….)
And the Marquis clung to this fading hope.
Marquis: (No, before that, I hope Angelina will not remember about Roku.)
The Marquis sincerely prayed.
If she recalls, there will be another incident.
The Marquis of course did not send the King a letter. Since Roku is perfectly innocent, there is no way he could bring up any accusations about kidnappings or what not.
It is yet to be known if spring will ever arrive for this family.
