c wasn’t charged into magic stones.
It finally made sense why the King had been so shocked that he seized Emma by reflex.
What the Kingdom wanted, out of the diplomatic exchange with Imperial Japan, was magic stones.
No country would part with their precious magic stones.
With their deposits mined to exhaustion, the Kingdom was desperate for magic stones and would do anything to get them.
“A, a priceless magic stone… Why does someone like my grandfather have it?”
The more Martha understood the situation, the more confused she became.
“The fact that Martha could pick up Imperial Japanese might mean that Martha might be descended from Imperial Japanese… Most likely, Martha’s grandfather is Imperial Japanese.
Marha, has your grandfather ever taught you anything else? Something related to Imperial Japan, for example?”
Joshua got Martha to sit on a chair and asked her questions after she calmed down.
Martha covered her mouth with the back of her hand and thought a while, then suddenly raised her face.
“Back then, when I would lose something, my grandfather taught me a spell! He taught me to draw a symbol, a good luck charm on my things so I wouldn’t lose them!”
A good luck charm… Was there something like that?
They couldn’t tell what it was because they didn’t have any knowledge of Imperial Japan.
Yosui Ino** started singing in their minds, but this was because they were Japanese, and this wasn’t the time to be dancing.
[T/N 2: A reference to Yosui Inoue’s song ‘Yume no Naka e’.
The lyrics mention to ‘stop searching for that something and just dance it away’.]
There is always pen and paper ready in Emma’s room for making dress and embroidery designs.
They placed them in front of Martha and asked,
“Martha, do you remember that lucky charm symbol? Could you draw it?”
“Well, I used to draw it on each of my belongings when I was young, so…”
Upon saying that, pen in hand, Martha drew the symbol slowly and carefully.
There on the paper, she had written “Ono Maasa”.
[T/N 3: Ono Maasa here is written in Japanese characters (小野真麻).
‘Maasa’ sounds identical to how the name Martha is pronounced in Japanese.
This further supports the theory that Martha’s grandfather is Japanese.]
Author’s note: Several servants from Palace also accompanied the Stuart family to the royal capital.
One of them was Martha, who was asked by Melsa to come due to her valuable ability to scold Emma.
