Rosetta and Marie

After advancing to the fourth year, you receive a half-year long vacation from school.

 

During this period, the students usually go back to their homes to relax for a bit.

 

With Derrick now defeated, Liam had returned to the Banfield territory.

 

His fiancée Rosetta, and his underling Wallace had gone along with him. 

 

The vassals had returned as well.

 

Visiting Rosetta’s room was Marie– the girl who had been petrified two millennia ago.

 

“Lady Rosetta, it’s time.”

 

She called out to her using the intercom attached to the door.

 

Rosetta immediately responded in a hurry,

 

“Ye-yes!”

 

Due to the Claudia house not having any servants, she was having a hard time adjusting to life at the mansion.

 

As a result, she often found herself acting awkwardly around Marie.

 

In front of Rosetta’s room, there were always two female knights stationed there.

 

There were also servants on standby, so Marie called out to them,

 

“How’s Lady Rosetta doing?”

 

“She’s really shy and refuses to be taken care of. She told us she’d get herself ready this morning, and that we should refrain from entering.”

 

Marie rubbed her chin,

 

“…this is troubling.”

 

In this universe there were many useful tools that could be used to help one get ready in the morning.

 

There was no need to have servants assist you.

 

However, the servants here were professionals hired specifically for this task.

 

It’d be a problem to prevent such personnel from doing their jobs.

 

“What’s Lord Liam’s opinion of this?”

 

“He told us to watch over the situation until she got used to it.”

 

Marie wanted Rosetta to prepare herself quickly, but she’d relent if Liam said it was okay.

 

In the first place, Liam himself didn’t keep that many people around him.

 

Because of his unique upbringing, he only kept those he trusted by his side.

 

–or so that’s how the surroundings perceived it.

 

In reality, it’s not strange for those with the position of Count to keep multiple servants by their side.

 

This was a universe where almost anything could be done by machines.

 

So to show off one’s luxury, it was quite popular to have professionals take care of your needs instead.

 

Some aristocrats even competed to see who could gather the most servants.

 

As a result, many noble children had their every need taken care of since birth, turning them useless as they grew older.

 

The elementary school was made to educate such children on how things really worked.

 

(Lord Liam is too humble. If considering his position, it’d be better if he indulged himself a bit more.)

 

As Marie thought so, Rosetta came out of her room,

 

“I-I’m sorry to have kept you waiting…”

 

Seeing Rosetta’s timid attitude, Marie straightened her back and responded,

 

“Lady Rosetta, you shouldn’t act so subservient with those who are below you.”

 

“O-of course, I’ll be careful.”

 

While Marie was troubled by Rosetta’s demureness, she led her to the vehicle parked in the hallway.

 

“Now then, over here please–”

 

–The mansion was too big, so there were vehicles stationed in the corridors to make them easier to traverse.

 

Rosetta couldn’t understand it.

 

“Why are there vehicles in the hallways? Can this even be considered a hallway anymore? Aren’t these already streets?”

 

It was weird to drive vehicles inside of a mansion!

 

-Those were Rosetta’s true feelings.

 

“You’ll get used to it.”

 

After Marie led Rosetta into the vehicle, she proceeded to give her a tour of the estate.

 

For Liam’s knight order, this wasn’t a job their second of command was supposed to be doing.

 

However, Marie felt quite the affinity for Rosetta.

 

Looking at her, she fell into thought,

 

(That fool turned me into stone and made an example of the Claudia house. Lady Rosetta is my companion in that regard.)

 

She was a fellow victim who was tormented by the ruling emperor of two millennia past.

 

Liam had saved both herself and Rosetta from such torment, making them both very precious to her.

 

“Today I’ll be showing you the mansion’s hospital.”

 

Rosetta burst out in surprise,

 

“There’s a hospital in the mansion?!”

 

“Of course there is, we had the room for it.”

 

“But I heard that the Banfield house already had hospitals equal to those of the imperial capital!”

 

Did you really need a hospital in your mansion if your already had ones of that caliber in your territory?

 

Rosetta couldn’t understand this.

 

“…please prepare yourself for when we arrive. The people who receive treatment there aren’t normal.”

 

Those who had been captured by pirates and had suffered terrible fates were sent there.

 

“I’ve heard about this before. The head knight told me that I needed to have a deeper understanding of Liam– my husband* to become a suitable wife for him.”

 

A blue vein popped up on Marie’s forehead, but because she was in front of Rosetta she forced herself to smile.

 

(That minced-meat bitch! Don’t preach around so bossily! Next time I see you I’ll cut you back down to the chunk of meat you were!)

 

“It’s only been a decade or so since Liam’s knight order was founded, so disregard anything that lady says, the head knight will be changing soon anyways.”

 

“I-is that so? It’s only been ten years, but it already looks like there are plenty of excellent knights here.”

 

To this universe, a decade was a short amount of time.

 

To be considered a historical knight order, they’d need at least five hundred years of experience to them.

 

“Oh yes, why ‘husband’?”

 

“D-does it sound funny?”

 

“No, it’s just that I’ve only heard Amagi refer to Lord Liam that way.”

 

“Amagi… she’s that android, isn’t she?”

 

“I’m worried that Lord Liam might mind, so let’s consider other names so you can differentiate yourself from her.”

 

“Huh? I should call him something else? Like a nickname or something?”

 

Marie went into deep thought for a moment,

 

“What about ‘darling?’”

 

–that suggestion was happily accepted.

 

◇ ◇ ◇

 

After returning to the mansion, I indulged myself in luxury first thing in the morning.

 

“It’s definitely luxurious to start the day playing in the pool!”

 

The wave pool was cleaned last night and filled with water.

 

It’d be nice if there were lots of girls in swimsuits here too, but I didn’t have any beauties at the moment.

 

The only ones in their swimsuits here were Amagi and Brian.

 

Amagi’s was a modest pareo-type.

 

It perfectly suited her adult charm.

 

I specifically had Thomas prepare a high-quality swimsuit made of the best materials for her.

 

I got angry when he asked me if I wanted to prepare a risqué swimsuit and shouted, “ARE YOU AN IDIOT?!” back then.

 

Amagi wasn’t an exhibitionist.

 

There’s no way I’d make her wear something risqué.

 

Brian on the other hand was wearing a swimsuit that covered his knees and elbows.

 

…I didn’t care about that though.

 

“Lord Liam, would you like some fruit for breakfast?”

 

“Is it a fresh and high-class one?”

 

“Of course! We’ve prepared for you the finest goods grown in your territory’s soil!”

 

–what a waste of expenses!

 

They actually flew in fresh fruit directly from the fields.

 

When I tried them, they were fresh and sweet.

 

While the fruit juices smoothly went down.

 

“They’re delicious!”

 

They went so far just for my breakfast.

 

Being an evil lord is the best!

 

Amagi proceeded to cut the fruit indifferently,

 

“To eat what was grown locally, you sure are amazing, Master.”

 

“Are you being sarcastic? Please don’t be angry. I’m doing this because I didn’t get to enjoy these luxuries while in school.”

 

As I thought, home is best.

 

There was nobody here who could resist me, and I was treated like a king.

 

I was an evil king though.

 

Brian brought out the next product,

 

“Lord Liam, next we have some yogurt for you.”

 

“Is it a luxury item?”

 

“Unfortunately it’s not, this Brian here made it himself.”

 

“You know you don’t have to do that, right? Well, I’ll still try it since you made it for me… oh, it’s actually pretty good.”

 

I kind of hated how unexpectedly delicious it was.

 

◇ ◇ ◇

 

Wallace was watching Liam.

 

He was eating breakfast by the poolside first thing in the morning.

 

“Liam sure is modest. Isn’t everything he’s eating grown from his own territory?”

 

Aristocrats who owned land like Liam usually had their meals imported on spaceships from abroad.

 

But these fruits were prepared from his people’s fields.

 

If compared to the common sense of Earth, it was as if he was eating what was grown in his backyard garden.

 

In this universe, what was considered ‘luxurious’ among the nobility was completely different.

 

They’d spend ridiculous amounts of money just for a single cup of coffee.

 

The best water would be prepared.

 

They’d gather the best beans.

 

All of it processed using the best tools and the best professionals.

 

In any case, that’s just how things were.

 

So from Wallace’s perspective, Liam was being exceptionally frugal.

Translated by KuroInfinity at slothtranslationsblog.com

* Rosetta actually refers to Liam as ‘Dan’na-sama(旦那様)’ both here, and in the next few lines, but rather than it’s meaning of ‘Master’ in which Amagi uses it, she’s using it for it’s second meaning of ‘Husband’.

Hey everyone, KuroInfinity back at it again with another post-volume translator message! I hope you enjoyed volume 3 of “I’m the Evil Lord of an Intergalactic Empire”, since I worked really hard on the translations. (^^|||

In any case, same as always, please keep the credits I leave in the chapters in whatever formats you turn these into, and I love all of your support (except for the stupid bots and people who steal my work), and I hope to see you again soon! Ciao~ ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

  1. Thank you, so that’s why Marie was happy about the engagement, it’s because she sees them as comrades… I thought it was because of something that happened during that time period that caused her to be indent to Rosettas family and she was happy to still have a chance to repay their descendent or something

    1. It’s described in the second chapter of the series.

      ‘In the end, I chose the one with an appearance akin to a japanese-styled beauty.

      Her long black hair was tied into a ponytail that flowed all the way down to her back, and her bangs grew longer on the right side rather than her left. Needless to say, I chose one that was well endowed.’

      So pretty much:

      – Japanese Beauty
      – Black Hair that’s tied in a ponytail, her right bangs grown longer than her left.
      – big chest
      – (and in this case) pareo-swimsuit instead of her normal maid outfit

  2. “Nobility uses the best water for their coffee”

    Ah, yes, i also like coffee made with the highest quality of water molecules… handpicked, of course

    Which is technically true, as all molecules the same quality then all are of the highest one, and a pick them with my hand… by the mug. but with my hand nevertheless

    1. If you want to go technical then no, water molecules are not all identical,
      Some may have formed of different isotopes, some may have different spin,
      And all that produce subtle but noticeable difference in their properties,

      1. Not your kidneys but intestines. First place where your body gets serious about absorbing water from whatever you took in. One of the mechanisms cells use to take in water is based on osmosis where the cell has a higher salt/electrolyte content then the fluid around it and it keeps taking in water until that content is the same. So demineralized water results in those cells bursting if it can’t get diluted enough. Won’t kill you unless you drink silly amounts of water in one go but spending weeks if not months (while the intestines heal) on the toilet won’t be pleasant.

          1. Wrong order. First place for water absorption in quantity in your body is the intestinal tract.
            Kidneys are at the end, filtering out waste from the blood (waste being expelled through urine), regulating the balance of fluids in it and (knowing how the human body functions) most likely doing a few more odds and ends.
            So no the kidneys will be the last thing to suffer.

    2. Depends. Some people like mineral water, while others prefer just distilled.

      Mineral water has, well, minerals in it that is “healthy” for you and does give the water a little flavor when it’s taken from somewhere like the ice caps.

      Personally, I find mineral water to be a load of crap as whatever benefits you get can’t compare to eating solid food. Pure distilled is the way to go!

    3. They are using some fine quality tritium for their H2O (probably doesn’t work… but eh what the hell do I know about chemistry). Well it’s either that or they’ve put some exotic minerals or something into the water for taste (because you know… ultra pure water will just kill you)

    4. Actually, you have to brew tea differently depending on the type of water you have – and the purest isn’t equal to the best for the specific type of tea you want to make.
      With coffee you can’t tell as much as with tea, but different types of coffee taste better or worse depending on what kind of water you have.
      Mineral water, bubbly water, water without gas, water with special healing qualities…there are many things water can contain that have an influence and getting the purest isn’t as important as getting the right kind for gourmet tea drinkers.

      P.s.: someone I know gets some kind of salty, sour, bitter, disgusting water with health benefits and makes espresso with that (cause the water is that yucky). Surprisingly I like that better than ordinary espresso, so they might have a point…

  3. So Mad Dog Marie was the culprit behind ‘Darling’…
    I didn’t expect that.

    Thanks for the chapter. Vol 3 was a very enjoyable read, and your translations of Intergalactic Evil Lord always make my day.

  4. Ahh, of course the Darling doesn’t came out of nowhere right. I think Liam’s sense of luxuries is from the past life. That’s why he thought that what he’s doing is luxurious. He should be learning common sense of this universe from the demoted-to-baron Baron, but since he got neglected there, he didn’t I guess? That’s a good thing though. Useless spending is unnecessary in my opinion. Furthermore, it increases his standing as a lord. His past life concept of luxury is different than the current life so I guess both he and the people are happy. It’s a win-win situation right?

    Thanks.

  5. Wallace continues to be the worst of Liam’s enterouge, as he is being radically influenced by Liam, Kurt, Serena, and Brian into becoming as “evil” as Liam. Hahahaha

  6. Congratz on translating vol 3. You’re doing great work as usual Kuro!

    I like Otomege mob too, though i wish the translation was a little faster there. Probably can’t be helped since they’re translating the light novel rather than the web novel.
