did he include engagement into the selection!?
The nobles’ agitation reached its peak, while only Emma was overwhelmed with pressure.
Title, territory, engagement.
Why is he giving me useless things in a three-set combo!?
Title… We can barely maintain our current rank of Count, though?
Territory… No, well, the Palace is already ridiculously big, you know?
Engagement… It will definitely be with someone with a title higher than a count, right?
It’s always a gainless and valueless lineup of rewards!
However, because this is only the beginning of the evening party, I feel bad for wasting time by hesitating.
I can only choose by elimination.
“…Then, t-territory.” Emma answered in a trembling voice.
It’s better than a title or having her fiancé arranged.
“Huh?” Everyone in the venue expressed their confusion in unison.
No one had expected her to choose territory.
Because one’s territory would automatically expand if one’s rank was promoted or one married into the Royal Family.
Even the King asked why even though he was the one who said she could choose anything by herself…
Even if you ask why, it’s just by process of elimination, though?
Everyone standing behind Emma, other than her family, was looking at her with a bewildered face.
Emma dropped her gaze to escape all the eyes that fell on her, but her pure white dress was too blinding…
‘Ah, the Nitori pattern Harold-san drew for me has been totally erased by the white ink.
But I’m glad that the dress was done in time…’ When Emma drifted into her thoughts to escape from reality, she suddenly came up with something.
“Your Majesty, I, Emma Stuart, know which land I want as my territory.”
“Does that mean you have a specific place in mind?” The King prompted Emma to reveal which place she wanted as a territory.
He had never heard someone making a request like “I want this place” when granting a territory as a reward.
Most of the time, the Royal Family would choose a suitable place to grant as a reward.
But that rewarded land would also be decided by its proximity to the recipient’s territory and its estimated worth.
Emma’s remark that there was somewhere she specifically wanted… was pretty surprising in itself.
“Yes, Your Majesty.
I would like our House Stuart to be given the slums district in the royal capital.”
And then, saying that the land she had in mind was the slums, the Count’s daughter Emma Stuart looked straight at the King.
Nobody in attendance could understand the girl’s words.
