Reincarnated With The Strongest System

Chapter 18: Guests From Afar [Part 2]

s situation had died down, the four guards sheathed their weapons and stood behind their employers.

“Alright, so you came here to break the marriage agreement.” William nodded his head. “Can you tell me why?”

Agatha looked at the boy in front of her in surprise. The way he acted was not that of a ten-year-old. Although she didnt feel like she was talking to an adult, she still thought that the one who was taking the lead in the conversation was not a child.

“Allow me to answer your question,” Eleanor replied. “Rebecca is a genius. A genius that is only born once every two hundred years. As her Master, I cant allow my disciple to marry a nobody.”

“Ah, I see.” William nodded his head. “Perfectly understandable.”

“Y-you agree?” Eleanor frowned. “You agree that you are not worthy of my disciple?”

“Hmm? You are mistaken.” William shook his head. “I understand your reason, but I dont agree with it. However, since you came here to break the marriage agreement due to this reason, you must surely have made sufficient preparations, right?”

Agatha was starting to feel that the filthy boy in front of her was not as simple as he seemed. His mannerisms, and the way he acted, made her feel that this marriage agreement wasnt a big deal to him.

“What do you mean made sufficient preparations?” Agatha asked.

“What I mean is, have you prepared your compensation?” William smiled. “Since you are planning to break the marriage agreement, you should have brought a suitable compensation to make us agree to your demand, right?”

Mordred who was listening to his nephew had a calm expression on his face. However, deep inside, he was very alarmed. William had never acted like this in front of them before, and for a moment, he was unsure if the boy sitting next to him was his real nephew or not.

“I see.” Agatha nodded her head. “You want compensation right? Very well, how much gold do you want?”

“Gold? Im not interested in gold,” William replied. “Do you think we are poor?”

Yes, Agatha thought.

You are poor, Eleanor mused.

Very poor. Rebecca smiled.

Actually, we are very poor. Mordred sighed in his heart, but didnt say anything. He needed to act as if gold wasnt a big deal to him in order to support his nephew in the negotiations.

“My goodness, where is our manners?” William placed his hand over his forehead as if he had completely forgotten something. “Aunt Helen, please serve our guests some tea. Here, use these special leaves I picked on my way back home.”

William shamelessly picked the leaves, and grasses that were stuck on his clothes one by one. He didnt even spare the leaves that had fallen on his head while he slept in the valley.

“As you wish, young master,” Helen, the maid of the family, took the leaves with a smile. She then proceeded to the kitchen in order to brew the “special tea” for their guests.

“Dont worry, tea will be served shortly.” William gave his guests a bright smile. “I want to show all of you our hospitality.”

Mordred averted his gaze and gave a light cough. Although he was poor, he was not shameless enough to serve tea made from the wild grasses that the goats of Lont fed on in the valley.

Agatha and Eleanor did their best to keep their disgust from appearing on their faces. They couldnt believe that William actually dared to serve them tea made from wild grass! This was a slap to their faces and it made them seethe in anger.

Rebecca, on the other hand, looked at William with amusement. She didnt really care about the marriage agreement and didnt think much of her fiance. However, the more she looked at William, the more pleasing he became in her eyes.
