The story goes back about a month.

 

A group is heading to capital city of Silezia Kingdom Sironsk. In the gorgeous carriage, Emilia-Silesia is troubled.

In the series of event, she learnt that she herself was ignorant and incompetent. She doesn’t have the wisdom and ability to obtain the crown, she thought that even if she’s in the first place to inherit the throne, she can’t permit herself to inherit it.
However it’s the fact that she’s only 10 years old so, the coronation is still way ahead.

The Princess decided to improve her ability.

But she doesn’t know how to do it. Because such thing was the job of her father and uncle.

However she can’t ask others opinions.
If she can’t solve it herself, she won’t be able to solve anything, or so she thought.

The first idea that came up, is to throw away the succession right.

But she feel that it’s a bad idea immediately.
To throw away the succession right is easy, an easy way. However once it’s been thrown away she won’t be able to get it anymore, besides it’s just running away from the obligations that she has.

Besides, father won’t permit it. My father wants me to inherit the throne by any means. It seems to be the last will of my deceased mother.
For me, my mother is just a person in a painting, but it doesn’t seems to be the case for my father, the will of my mother seems to have the same weight as the Word of God.

 

Then what should I do.
Her thought always ended there.

 

Let’s try to change my point of view.

Why do I want to succeed the throne.
There is selfish reason that I don’t want to be defeated by uncle.
However, there is more, the figure of the person who becomes a shield to protect my skin and died.

They died for me because the special status of a royalty.

If I abandon the succession right, I won’t be able to face those who died. They died and tortured to protect the royal family member who ran away from her obligation, it’s disappointing.
If she stay in the safety of the royal palace, she’ll just be a burden, she can’t just live luxuriously as a royal family even though she doesn’t have any wisdom or ability.
During the war, it’s not permissible to live without concern in the royal palace without looking at those who died in the battlefield.

If they don’t exist, I won’t exist.

 

When she reach that thought, she knew what to do.

“When I reach the royal palace, I have to consult it with father.”

 

 


If you didn’t read this at lazypioneer dot wordpress dot com it’s been stolen.
It kind of dampened my motivation that my work has been stolen.


 

 

Royal palace, in the center of kingdom capital Sironsk.
Inside that room, a man is troubled.

His name is Frans-Silesia. The 7th king of the Silesia Kingdom, the father of a selfish daughter Emilia-Silesia.
His trouble is not the number of victim and war expenses with the neighboring nation. It’s his daughter.

His daughter went on a journey to participate in the ceremony held in the neighboring nation Carlsberg but a political change occurred and escalated into a war.

It was the king himself who ordered her daughter to go to Carlsberg.
The selfish and sheltered girl, who will succeeds the throne in the future, he though he would let her participate in official business gradually. (TL : 1st daughter errand is to go to neighboring country who was hostile…. ED: It wasn’t hostile when she started her business trip. Before she cross national border Carlsberg had coup d’etat and become hostile as result of ECE scheming)

For the debut of a noble or a Royal Family member is usually at some official ceremonies. In the case of Emilia, the debut was the ceremony at Carlsberg.

However the result is as you can see.
His daughter was chased by the enemy force and barely able to return to the royal capital alive.

She will hate her father!

“That’s why I said I don’t want to! Mou I hate father! I don’t want to talk anymore! Don’t wash our underwear together anymore!”

If his daughter said such thing, the king believe that he will commit suicide. It can’t be helped because before he was a king, he is a father of a cute girl.

“Your Majesty, Princess Emilia has requested a discussion.”

Geh.

What to do. I wonder if she’s angry after all. What kind of selfish thing she will say. Until now, I never listen to her selfish demand but this time it seems I have to accept any demands. Otherwise I might die.

“N, Understood. Tell her to come to my office.”
“By your will.”

 

After a few minutes, the daughter came to the kings’ office.

What kind of selfish demand will she say this time. Doki doki.

“Dear Father, I want to consult something.”
“…What is it?”

Could it be about the laundry.

“I want a permission to enter the Military Academy.”

 

 

 

Eh?

 

 

Oops I can’t I stopped thinking because of such a strange request.

….Military Academy? Not Noble School?

“Let’s hear the reason.”

I, want to go to the Military Academy to kill that person! as expected if she said that I will have to stop it.

“Because that’s the obligation of a Royal Family, or so I though.”

Oi, is this really my selfish daughter? Did you eat strange things in Carslberg?
It’s unexpected that she us a word like “Royal Obligation”.

“For Emilia, what it the Royal Family obligation?”

The Royal Family Obligation , or Noble Obligation is a word that’s been around for a long time.
I someone with a status and power doesn’t have any obligation, the people won’t consent. Of course, unlike obligations to pay taxes or the likes there’s nobles who doesn’t do it properly since it’s not clearly stated in the law. Or perhaps I should say more are like that.

“For me the Royal Obligation is, to trust the people, to shield the people, to protect the people.”
“And you want to go to the Military Academy to do that?”
“Yes.”

How did this happen.

No, I can generally figure it out. The personal royal maids was with her when they were chased by the enemy soldiers, about half of those that went with her  did not come back. If she saw that up close, it will make her think about it.
However the Military Academy is unexpected.
If it’s the Nobles School. I would have send her in triumph.
A Noble School is, an elite school where literally only nobles are allowed to attend. Other than staffs commoners are not allowed to enter and exit.
A lot of great nobles who will succeed the family title in the future usually goes there, they received higher education, etiquette and make connections. Then when it’s finished they will debut, then work hard in their territory to serve the kingdom.

“Although it’s a good idea, you don’t have to stand in the battlefield to protect the people. You can also do it from the Royal Palace, no even not in the Royal Palace. The former “Continental Empire” also did a similar thing in the remote regions, they made the land and people rich. That is also enough for Royal Family Obligation. You can go to noble school to learn it.”
“That’s not good.”
“Not good is it.”
“Yes. I don’t want to be negligent about domestic affairs, but even though I said that, I’m not satisfied with only just that.”
“Why?”
“I, don’t want myself to spend time in the safe place in the Royal Palace or in the governors offices. I, Princess Emilia was saved by commoner soldiers. Those soldiers protected me at the risk of their own life. Then I also must protect them at the risk of my own life. Also….”
“Also?”

Emilia breathe in a lot of air and said in a loud voice.

“Also, the soldiers won’t consent to a King who command the troops from a safe palace while they are at war! The soldiers are also human, not a chess piece!”

That speech strike at home.
I was commanding the troops from this Royal Palace. Even though I’m commanding an army, I’m commanding it from a safe Royal Palace.
The soldiers are the one that stand against death. And the King leads the war, and praised in the safe place.

“I don’t think I want to kill someone. I don’t think I want to lead a war. However, there’s no excuse from leading the people to war, away from the war itself!”

…..She became splendid before I aware.

I’m not a cold person that will refuse such proposal of the daughter who have made such an important decision.
If I miss this opportunity, perhaps she will remain a sheltered girl for a life time.

“Fortunately, I hear that even in Military Academy we can learn about domestic affairs. After I graduate from the Military Academy, I will return to the Royal Palace and devote myself to domestic affairs if it’s possible.”

“I understand.”
“…Dear father!”
“But there’re some conditions.”
“…..What is it.”

Even if said that it’s not a difficult condition. I also have an “Obligation”.

“First, you have to hide your Royal Family status.”

Although it’s a Military Academy it doesn’t mean it’s safe. Fortunately since she haven’t debuted yet there’s not many who knows her face.
If you want to fulfill the Royal Family Obligation, it’s not good to be pampered in the school because of the Royal Family status. It will be fine to just inform the teachers only.

“Second, take 1 guard, enroll to the school together.”

It will be both an escort and a caretaker. I don’t think this sheltered daughter can suddenly go and adapt to a military school. Well it will also serve as a supervisor. Let’s have her submit a report regularly.

“Third, I won’t permit you to drop out. Regarding the grades, I won’t interfere at all.”

A Royal Family can’t be dropped out of school. Even if it’s possible to graduate without any effort if I interfere she won’t be happy.

“Fourth, after 5 years of Military Academy, you will enter the army for 10 years.”

Other cadets should be the same with that too.

“Last, You will enroll in the Military Academy right now.”

The formal entrance ceremony will be half a year from now. it’s possible that her mind will change after that long. We need to strike the iron while it’s hot. I will make some arrangement.

“….”
“Those are the conditions. If you can’t accept it, I won’t admit the admission to the Military Academy.”

After thinking for a while she decided.

“Understood. I accept all conditions.”

….Eh~. Everything….
I was expecting a bit of. “I would rather be with father than accepting those conditions!” or something like that.

“…. Then, I won’t stop Emilia from enrolling.”
“Thank you very much. Dear father.”

With that Emilia lower her head deeply and left the office.

….She really have changed. Though it’s still 10 years old, she can think about such a moving speech.

 

While watching the door closing, Frans muttered.

“Emilia has become much more similar to you.”

 

In the office, the picture of the deceased Queen was displayed. –


Noble Obligation – Noblesse Obligee https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noblesse_oblige

I rewrote Nobles School in capitals due to  this words sounding like name of school, f.e. Harvard University.

Also changed military school to Military Academy due this same reasons.

So, as you can read in this double chapter Royal Princess Loli is joining the school of our MC.

    thanks for the chapter

    No, I can generally figure it out. The personal royal maids was with her when they were chased by the enemy soldiers, about half of the(?) did not come back. If she saw that up close, it will make her (though) about it.

    for (though) i think u meant (thought). the i personally say that (think) is better
    for the (?) i think u forgot the (royal maids) part that was mentioned on the first line. though i don’t get why there’s no mention of any knights
