Chapter 4-31 : Engagement Crisis Once Again (part 1)

 

The day after Aaron lost his noble title and Mylia became the feudal lord of the Atwood Territory, Mylia, Chloe, and Bonnie decided to start working on the development of the village without knowing about Aaron and Rodriguez’s secret meeting last night.

In the center of the village square where they had a party last night, Mylia took out several tables and chairs and set up a workplace there.

She then took out the updated map of the Atwood Territory she received from the queen and spread it on a table.

Meanwhile, Chloe prepared a large piece of blank paper, spread it next to the map, and started making plans.

「We want to turn this small village into a big town, so we need to build paved roads so that people can walk comfortably and carriages can run smoothly.」(Chloe)

「If that’s the case, first of all, we need to decide where we will build the main street.」(Bonnie)

「Exactly. Since the main gate is around this area, then we will build the main street from here to…. this point. What do you think, Mylia?」(Chloe)

While explaining, Chloe drew a rough map on the blank sheet with a ruler and a pencil.

「I think it’s good, but… Bonnie onee-sama, we need your opinion as the future mayor of this town.」(Mylia)

「Hmm… It will be a long paved road, but I think we can build it as long as we have enough labor.」(Bonnie)

「Then, Bonnie onee-sama, would you gather the villagers who want to work for us?」(Mylia)

「Of course. Your wish is my command, my lord.」(Bonnie)

「Geez. Please stop it. It makes my back feel itchy.」(Mylia)

「Fufu~ Alright, my cute little sister~」(Bonnie)

「That’s better!」(Mylia)

Bonnie immediately left and started gathering villagers who were willing to work for the development of the village.

A while later, about twenty villagers gathered in front of Chloe’s table to apply for the job.

After Chloe registered them all, they waited for Bonnie to give them orders.

「Alright. First, we need to mark the area for the main street. Mylia will clear the area afterward so that we can build the paved road. Bonnie onee-sama, I leave it to you.」(Chloe)

While saying that, Chloe handed the rough map she drew on the paper to Bonnie.

「Roger that~」(Bonnie)

Bonnie then left with the workers to make two parallel lines through the village by putting wooden stakes on the ground as markers so that they knew where to build the road.

After that, Mylia would use magic to clear the designated area from trees, rocks, and other obstacles, and then the workers would build the paved road.

「We hired villagers for now, but I think we should hire professionals in civil engineering work too in the future.」(Chloe)

「I agree. It will make our work more efficient.」(Mylia)

By the way, the salary came from Mylia’s pocket money.

She saved a lot of gold coins, so hiring hundreds of people wouldn’t be a problem for her.

(Building your own town the way you like is kind of exciting!)

「Onee-chan, I have a great idea! Let’s build restaurants and street food stalls around the main street and then let’s hold a food festival every month! It will be fun!」(Mylia)

「Fufu. That’s a wonderful idea. In that case, I have a perfect name for the main street. Let’s name it “Mylia’s Stuffed Tummy Street”! Because there’s a lot of food in ‘Mylia’s tummy’. You know what I mean?」(Chloe)

After saying that, Chloe made another rough map and labeled the main street on it as “Mylia’s Stuffed Tummy”.

「M, Mylia’s Stuffed Tummy…? I’m sorry, Onee-chan, but… I don’t think it’s a good name. It won’t be the official name, right? It’s only a temporary street name, right?」(Mylia)

「Hm? Of course, I plan to make it the official name. I want it to be a well-known street from generation to generation.」(Chloe)

Chloe smiled brightly at Mylia. She thought it was a good name that everyone would remember for decades.

Seeing Chloe’s smile, Mylia couldn’t help but smile too, but then she immediately shook her head and disagreed.

「No, no! You can’t use that stupid name! People will get confused!」(Mylia)

「Get confused? I don’t think so. It’s a cute name, don’t you think?」(Chloe)

「It’s not! It’s an embarrassing name!」(Mylia)

「But, Mylia, it’s better to have a main street name that is easy to remember. Besides, everyone will know that you are the lord of the territory if we use your name. It will increase your dignity and the management of the territory will go well for sure.」(Chloe)

「Is that really so…?」(Mylia)

「Of course! You can trust your onee-chan!」(Chloe)

Seeing Chloe acting so stubborn, which was quite rare, Mylia lost her will to say no to her.

She could only sigh while looking at Chloe who was writing something in the corner of the rough map while humming happily.

However, when she glanced at the words Chloe was writing, she opened her eyes and mouth wide like someone who just realized something terrifying would happen.

(Onee-chan… don’t tell me… She will use that list as street names…!?)

What Chloe wrote in the corner of the rough map was the list of streets that would be built in the new town.

ー Mylia’s Cute Face St
ー Mylia’s Lavender Hair St
ー Mylia’s Pretty Eyes St
ー Mylia’s Fluffy Cheeks St
ー Mylia’s Angelic Voice St

(N, No way…)

「O, Onee-chan, I think naming all the streets with my name is a bit too much…」(Mylia)

「It’s better than doing it half-heartedly, right? It’s for the sake of the territory.」(Chloe)

「Uhh… I feel like it doesn’t have anything to do with the territory…」(Mylia)

Mylia was happy that Chloe wanted more people to know about her, but it was too embarrassing.

「Mylia, I’ll be more motivated in my work this way, so… Please~」(Chloe)

Chloe glanced upward at Mylia with her big, pretty eyes.

Mylia, who had never seen Chloe begging cutely like that, took a step back after she felt the destructive aura of cuteness coming from Chloe.

(Kuuuhh…!! Onee-chan so cuuuute!!)

「Onee-chan… that cute upward glance is unfair…!」(Mylia)

「Eeehh~? You don’t like it~?」(Chloe)

「I, It’s not what I mean… It’s just… Aa-aahh… Alright, alright. You may use my name…」(Mylia)

「Fufu. I love you, Mylia~」(Chloe)

Chloe hugged Mylia and stroked her head.

Mylia couldn’t help but smile.

(It’s embarrassing, but if it can motivate Onee-chan, then I’ll bear with it.)

「Well then, let’s proceed with the next plan, shall we?」(Chloe)

「Un!」(Mylia)
