It's The First Time For Both Of Us - Chapter 51.2

Chapter 51 – Part 2
’Ah, you mean in return for my gift? You should have told me sooner!’
Delighted, I nodded my head and went outside. “HIhi, what do I want?”
As soon as I came out, Kuhn jumped from afar as if he had already been waiting for me.
“Great, I already have something to discuss with you, Kuhn. But let’s go outside first. Through the window!” I whispered to Kuhn.
Maybe Dante and Dad would talk about something important after I am gone. I was thinking of eavesdropping on them. I checked that the window was open, so I needed to hurry. I motioned for Kuhn to follow me and ran out.
[More than that, there are people coming here to the Grand Duchy now. They looked like priests.]
Chasing after me, Kuhn replied, [Two carriages are coming this way. And the pattern that i saw on the temple was engraved on their carriage.]
“Is that so?”
[Yes. At their speed, they will arrive at the Grand Duchy in three days.]
“They must have really gone crazy. Why are they such in a hurry?”
They didn’t just send a message, but it also seemed like they set off as soon as they sent the message. Dad wouldn’t know this, but even if I told him, I wouldn’t know what to say if he asked me how I knew.
I moved along. “Did you check the people inside, Kuhn? Do they have white hair or something?”
[There were five minus the coachman. There were people whom I had seen when I went to the temple, and they seemed to be carrying something with them in the carriage. I didn’t see if there was anyone with white hair. Should I check their faces again?]
I shook my head.
’Good, that white man isn’t [coming] here.’
“No, we will see them since they’re coming here anyway. I think it would be better for us to come up with a countermeasure. Let’s go.”
Creeping right under the office window, I hid behind a tree in the nearest garden. It was just the perfect size to hide my body. Hiding behind it, I cast a veil in case anyone passed. Perhaps it was thanks to my practice, the veil spread wide to the area right below the window.
‘Let’s stay here for a minute,’ I mouthed to Kuhn, who calmly sat next to me with his front legs together.
“What should we do? If you refuse what the Pope himself gave you, he will nitpick you again. You know it has always been like that, Your Excellency.”
I pressed myself under the window as soon as I heard Dante’s voice.
“Are you telling me to go to the temple on my own feet?”
“They were hoping that you would accept their offer. They have been really persistent on this matter since you turned down the cardinal position. It’s not like Your Excellency will be baptized. Are you willing to endure the resistance of the aristocrats? Your Excellency, you now have the young lady.”
Cardinals were second only to the Pope in power in the temple. Unknowingly, I imagined Dad standing side by side with the white-haired Pope. It was a horrific scene giving me goosebumps.
Dante said with ridicule, “Not to other nobles, but to a person who contemplates whether he should pray on the temple or not. If you ask the nobles to line up with the most faithful aristocrat, there will be many behind Descartes. When on earth will this obsession come to an end?”
“Just tell them that I’ll come in person. Anyway, it‘s just moving the date forward.”
’Ah, this is frustrating. They are already coming. I really want to tell Dad about this.’
“I will send a message as soon as possible, though they may have made their move already.”
I praised Dante’s foreboding. I thought he was just always talking nonsense.
“Send them anyway.”
“Ah, are you trying to protect the lady? I also agree with that so they can’t ask you [to do] something dirty. Ugh, it’s really horrible, just imagining them being mushy with her. Of course, we should protect our lady.”
I looked at Kuhn and blinked. Actually, I’d been thinking about it for a while now. Because of the fact that I am the bloodline of Descartes and Dad’s daughter, I had no choice but to think that people would be nice to me.
’Saying that in my absence, thank you.’
I really had to write my own name.
While I was thinking of putting my heart into a gift, I heard Dante’s words again.
“Ahem, I will send a message to the temple first. And I have one more thing to report. This is the interim report you asked for before.”
I was about to leave but I clung to the wall again.
“I found the person who deliberately sold the Dilton.”
tl/n: Hello everybody! Bunny here~! I hope that you’re all having a good day. I have sad news to deliver. It is that I will have to drop this novel due to various circumstances and real life matters. It’s not that I don’t love working on this novel, and that I don’t love the story, but it is because I couldn’t handle the number of novels I have right now, so I am kinda lessening the number of novels I’m working on. Ever since school started, my schedule had been pretty busy and hectic. I had no time to translate, and it made me feel bad about the readers who may have been patiently waiting for an update. If you know someone who wants to continue translating this novel, kindly ask them to reach out to me through discord (Bunny Byun#8867). I have full raws of this novel that I can provide them with. Thank you and have a blessed day ahead~! <3 ────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────
