Soon, the prototype for the face lotion would be completed.
Considering the confidentiality of the project, the result from monitoring the rich lady chosen by Isaac showed that the product had an excellent reputation. Her reaction was enough.
The problem was the method for selling it.
（Even if I were to promote it by myself, right now, just at the mention of my name, they will not hesitate to turn me down at their front doors. Nevertheless, before, it’s enough to gain some trust just by using D’Austriche name; It has appears to me that I didn’t give much thought on its advertising……）
She looked through the list of prospective attendees for the evening party that she asked Jasper to check up on.
It was an occasion in which it was the first evening party that the Crown Prince himself organized. There were also names of great noble families comparable to the D’Austriche Ducal House listed. At this point, if the production is going well, they will be moving on the right track.
（We were able to make an excellent product; if we can persuade the people to use it, this product should be gaining a reliable reputation. The problem is, how do we persuade them to use it? Should I lower my head and beg them? No, if I do that kind of thing, they will use that opportunity to take advantage on me……）
She heard a rustling sound.
Irene who was facing the desk illuminated by a lantern in her own room spoke first with her quill pen in her hand.
「Almond, right? I’m going to tell Claude-sama, you know? For god sake, you don’t learn your lesson at all――Eh」
Turning around, Irene’s eyes widened.
The one who was standing over there was not the crow that was wearing bow necktie. It was Beelzebub.
（……。That’s right, he’s a monster after all. He can use my shadow as well）
She ended up thinking something strangely stupid.
He just sneaked into a lady’s room at midnight. Even though he’s a monster, it was an unforgivable deed for someone possessing the appearance of a young man like him. (1) However puzzling this is, in the first place there’s no need for him to sneak here in the evening!
「……Girl. I have something to ask from you」
「……。My, what brings you here？」
At her confusion, not in a sarcastic way, but in a truly puzzled way, Beelzebub further furrowed his eyebrows.
「I don’t want to ask you either, but I heard from that brat that you’re a qualified person to ask about this matter」
「Are you talking about Donny? Good grief, I’m not a jack of all trades. But, it’s fine I suppose. Please, ask away」
「……The King is going to the evening party, isn’t he? I want to accompany him as well」
Irene blinked rapidly. Beelzebub sighed deeply.
「I know that Keith will accompany him. But, I feel uneasy if it’s just him」
「Even if you want to come along to the evening party, the attendant can only stay at the corner, you know？」
「Still.……The evening party is the gathering place for humans who had driven the King away, right? For King, that place is a battlefield. The King is strong. He will not lose to them」
With unwavering confidence in his King dwelling in his eyes, Beelzebub continued.
「But, it doesn’t mean that he will not be hurt」
「I heard that a power called “manner” is necessary at the place called the evening party for the sake of not embarrassing the King. I want that power」
At least, for the sake of staying by the King’s side.
When he appealed to her with that pair of eyes, Irene let out a strained laugh.――This was a request she couldn’t decline.
「You’ll grant me the power of “manner”?」
「Yes, I’ll grant it to you. I still have a month left. First of all, I’m going to give you the form. Because you’re Claude-sama’s right-hand man, you’re inevitably his Knight」
In a flash, Beelzebub made a seemingly happy face; His sincerity is real.
「Claude-sama is a fortunate person。……Moreover, he’s a mysterious man」
Beelzebub tilted his head to a side.
It was brilliant and enviable, Irene exposed what’s inside her heart with just a few words.
「To be able to influence his surroundings up to this point, I ended up feeling curious about what kind of person is he」
「He’s a Demon King？」
「That’s true. Maybe because of that, he’s the Demon King.…… He’s dangerous, mysterious, and no one knows what will happen. That’s why no one is able to ignore him……――That’s it！」
It was exactly a divine revelation. Standing, she looked at the list of the prospective attendees of the evening party once again.
「……The aim is, this and this……If I’m not mistaken, these two have a bad relationship, if we can utilize that……！」
「Oi, girl. I want to quickly be granted the power of “manner”」
「Yes, of course. I need to turn you into a Knight who’s going to flutter other ladies’ hearts, as well」
It should be possible. With a grin of a corrupt merchant shown on her face, Irene immediately turned around to face Beelzebub.
With both of her arms lightly crossed, Irene smiled gracefully.
「So, first, let’s learn how to kneel before me, okay？」
