Chapter 12: Birthday Party

When I arrived at our residence in the Imperial Capital, there was my grandmother and my sister to welcome me.
“Welcome, long time no see.”(Carina)

“Father, mother, long time no see, Leo as well, have you been fine?”(Helena)

“Long time no see Helena, I heard you entered the S-Class. Congratulations!”(Carla)
Saying that, mom hugged my sister.

By the way, in the school where nobles attend from the age of 8 until 14, S-Class is where only a few of the best students selected on the classification exam of the fourth grade are in, and if you graduate from the S-Class you receive a recommendation from the school.

“Nee-chan, congratulations. I’m fine.”(Leo)

“Thank you. I’m sure Leo will enter the S-Class with ease as well.”(Helena)

“Eh~ That’s not true!”(Leo)

“Ufufu, in that case all of my children will graduate from S-Class.”(Carla)

“Well, let’s not put too much pressure on the children. Even though Leo might be fine.”(Carina)
Saying that, grandma stopped them… maybe?

“That’s right, everyone is waiting so let’s go inside.”(Diork)
At my father’s words, everyone went inside.

Speaking of which, just when I was thinking something was wrong… My sister isn’t sticking to me!
Last time, she would be always clinging to me, so my sister have also grown, huh~
It feels a bit lonely though…

Entering the house, there was a man I didn’t know along with grandfather and my brother.
He is black-haired, just like grandfather and father.
[ED: In the raw it says blonde here, but I think it’s a typo since both Leo’s father and grandfather are black-haired.]

The stranger looked at me.
“Ah, is that child Leo-kun? Nice to meet you, I’m Diork-niisan’s younger brother, Damian.”(Damian)
[TLN: the raw is ダミアン]
Then he introduced himself.
Apparently, this person is my uncle.

“Damian is the captain of the Imperial Magic Special Forces and some say he’s the strongest person in the world.”(Diork)
The strongest, huh…
Alright, let me take a look at his status.

 Damian Forster Lv.120

It’s rare but, he’s a Sorcerer too!
It’s like he took after the best parts of both grandma and grandpa.

“Wow~ that’s amazing!”(Leo)

“Really? I’m so embarrassed~ But Leo-kun will soon surpass me though.”(Damian)

“Why?”(Leo)

“Your magic power is just too great. You have already exceeded mother on her heyday, right?”(Damian)
[TLN: mother here refers to Leo’s grandmother]

*stiffens*

“Huh? But Leo is still 8 years old.”(Diork)

“I’m telling the truth, father and mother feel that too, right?”(Damian)

“I do.”(Carina)
Grandma nodded at uncle’s words.


“Isn’t that amazing?”(Ivan)
When everyone fell silent, Ivan-niisan said that.

“At that age, to have more magic power than the Sorcerer...”(Alex)
Alex-niisan said in a tone of disbelief.

Come to think of it, it’s my first time hearing their voices in a long time.

“Yes yes, Leo must be tired from the trip, so that’s enough for today.”(Carina)

“That’s right, there’s the party tomorrow as well.”(Diork)

“Ah, speaking of which. It seems the princess summoned you the day after you birthday.”(Damian)

Eh!?

“Ara, isn’t it nice to be able to meet Shelia-chan?”(Carla)

“Did the two of you get along during the emperor’s vacation last time?”(Diork)

“They did, father, when it was time to go home Shelia-chan even hugged Leo while crying.”(Carla)
[ED: father here means father-in-law.]

“You have to go see her, Leo-kun.”(Damian)
Uncle said while patting my shoulder.

“O-Okay.”(Leo)

Well, it will be scary if don’t go.

“Now now, it’s time to dismiss.”(Carina)
Saying that, grandma dismissed everyone.

“Then let’s go, Leo.”(Carla)
Saying that, my mom took me and left the room.

“Yosh, everyone left.”(Diork)
Diork and Damian remained in the room while everyone left.

“It’s been a long time since we last talked to each other like this.”(Damian)

“That’s because we’re both busy with our works.”(Diork)

“So, why does Leo-kun have so much magic power, nii-san?”(Damian)

“I don’t know too… At the age of 3 he had already surpassed me.”(Diork)

“Then, maybe he was born with it?”(Damian)

“Maybe so.”(Diork)

“Leo-kun looks like he’ll be amazing if he continues to improve like this.”(Damian)

“That’s why I didn’t tell anyone outside the family about his magic power.”(Diork)

“Well, it would be troublesome otherwise.”(Damian)

“Let’s stop this talk here. By the way, how many nobles are coming for his party tomorrow?”(Diork)

“Looks like every noble with children around Leo’s age will come, even the other Dukes.”(Damian)

“That’s quite the number.”(Diork)

“Leo-kun will have it hard tomorrow.”(Damian)

“That’s true.”(Diork)
Saying so, the two gave a laugh.


<Party’s day>

Tonight, I’m wearing some very uncomfortable formal clothes.
There are many nobles gathered in the hall already.

The empire has a group of houses called the Three Grand Dukes.
North Lefevre family.
South Boardrail family.
West Philibert family.

And today, two of them are participating…

By the way, the Forster family is of Duke ranking as well, but it’s not included because it’s new.

In the eastern part of the empire, there was no chance for prosperity because it was always suffering some disaster caused by monsters, until grandpa came to the region that is.
Therefore, the previous noble families governing the east or have perished or were poor.

The Boardrail family is my mother’s family.
The Lefevre family is my grandmother’s family.
Today, these two Duke families are coming.

Although there were many other nobles who came as well.

When I think about having to greet all of them, I just feel like running away…

And, when I entered the room I was received with a round of applause, and with that the party began.

After that, the nobles came to greet me alternatively.

First of all, it was the Boardrail family.

A 30-years-old red-haired man and a boy(also red-haired) my age.

“Hi Leo, nice to meet you, I’m Carla’s younger brother, Lawrence Boardrail. Happy birthday.”(Lawrence)
This person is my uncle, it seems.

“Nice to meet you too, thank you very much.”(Leo)
I say while bowing.

“This is my second son Frank, he’s starting school next year, just like Leo.”(Lawrence)
Saying that, Lawrence-san pushed the back of the boy next to him.

“N-Nice to meet you. Happy birthday.”(Frank)

“Thank you, please treat me well at school.”(Leo)

“Yes, me too.”(Frank)

Of course, after the Boardrail family it was the Lefevre family’s turn.
A blonde man and girl came to greet me.
“Happy birthday. I am Diork’s cousin, Albert Lefevre, and this is Josettia, she’ll soon be the same age as you.”(Albert)

“Happy birthday. Please call me Jose.”(Josettia)

“Thank you very much. Thanks to Jose as well. Please treat me well at school.”(Leo)

“Yes, likewise.”(Jose)
After that, there were many nobles who somehow managed to make me remember about their daughters and sons and make me like them, they were pretty difficult to deal with.

Like that, the party was over, it wasn’t really something very enjoyable.


<Next day>

Since I was tired from yesterday’s party I was sleeping soundly, but I was woken up by someone.
“Wake up.”

“Unn.”(Leo)

“If you don’t wake up, she will be angry.”

“Uh, eh!? Why is uncle here?”(Leo)
When I woke up, there was my uncle in front of me.

“Why, you say, the emperor told me to bring you to the castle in secret.”(Damian)

“Ah, come to think of it, I have to go to Sherry’s place.”(Leo)
I was so exhausted yesterday that there was nothing left in my head…

“Yes, then please hurry up and change your clothes.”(Damian)

“Understood.”(Leo)

When I finished changing I tried to go to the front door, but uncle suddenly took me on his shoulder.

“Wh-What’s up?”(Leo)
Geez, why am I being carried?

“The emperor told me to bring you in secretly, so I’ll quickly take you using a secret passage.”(Damian)

“Eh~ ”(Leo)
I tried to protest but…
To prevent that, uncle ran while carrying me across the city at an incredible speed...
