New Home (2)
The mansion Marana showed us was incredibly beautiful.
It was divided into three segments, each one with three floors and seven individual rooms.
Each individual room had its own bathroom and closet. Moreover, the rooms were spacious enough for a noble to live comfortably.
Besides the bathroom, the mansion had a giant hall, a giant hot bath, a dining room, two kitchens, a courtyard with a beautiful garden, several offices, and several storerooms.
No matter how I looked at it, this was perfect for my harem house.
Unfortunately, not everybody thought like that.
“… Is it not a bit too big?” Mia asked worriedly. This mansion was even bigger than her former home.
“This place was originally going to be used as a high-class hotel,” Marana explained. “However, we canceled it when we heard Prince Claus needed a place to live.”
Mia did not know how to react. No matter how she saw it, this place was too exaggerated.
“… Claus, don’t you think this place is too big for the six of us?”
I smiled and shook my head.
“No, it’s perfect.”
“Don’t worry, mother-in-law. We are not the only ones that are going to live here.”
“???” Mia was confused, but Louise and Daisy rolled her eyes and Ysnay smiled amusedly.
They surely had already an idea of my plans.
“We will need a lot of servants though,” I mumbled to myself.
After all, most of the girls coming to live here are of noble descent. They will be unable to live without servants.
Mm, I should ask Marana about that.
They should be cute girls, of course.
Strangely, when I asked Marana about the servants, Louise, Daisy, and her glared at me with cold eyes.
Girls, you are misunderstanding me!
I swear my intentions are pure!
… Yeah, not even I believe that.
“Well, you don’t have a very good track record.”
Sighing inwardly about how the trust between lovers was disappearing, I asked the girls her thoughts about the house.
In the end, Louise, Daisy, and Claire agreed with this house. Mia still thought this was too much, but she agreed in the end, and Ysnay did not bother to opine.
“I guess this is the one then. Miss Marana, please get everything ready.” I said.
“Understood. What about the furniture?”
“Louise, Daisy, do you want to take care of that?” I asked.
Louise and Daisy nodded with sparks in her eyes, and even Claire joined to them.
I guess almost every girl likes these kinds of things, huh.
Marana then called a group of people specialized in furniture and introduced them to the girls.
After I told the girls to not worry about money (I’m filthy rich), I left them in the mansion.
I have some other things to take care of today after all.
Three powerful gangs disappeared last night, so we need to deal with the aftermath and stabilize the situation. To do that, I need to do a bit of skillful and forceful political negotiations.
Thus, I told Marana to meet me at noon and went back to the palace together with Ysnay.
Once we were back in the palace, I ordered the servants to ready my things to move them to my new house.
Although surprised, the servants followed my orders obediently.
But soon, the news I was moving spread to the entire palace.
Not much later, my beautiful blue-haired and blue-eyed little sister appeared before me with a downcasted expression.
“… Big bro, are you leaving?”
I nodded and patted her head. “You have seen how the situation in the palace is. I think it’s better if I leave to avoid interacting with your mother.”
Lena’s expression turned dejected. Almost immediately, tears started to fill her eyes.
“But… What about me? Are you going to leave alone…?”
Sigh, this cute girl.
How can I resist her tears?
I guess I should just take her with me, huh.
“… Lena, do you want to come with me?”
“Huh?” Lena was stunned.
“You see, the place where I’m moving to is a very big mansion, so there is no problem if you move with me. Daisy, Louise, and Claire and moving with me too.”
Lena’s face brightened. But one second later, she fell silent and a flash of hesitation appeared on her eyes.
“But… I don’t want to leave mom and dad.”
In the end, Lena still loves her parents a lot.
I sighed and crouched down, holding my little sister’s hands on mine.
“Silly girl, you can come to visit them when you want. Besides, don’t you want to spend more time with your older brother?”
“… Can I sleep with you?”
“Of course you can.”
In fact, sleeping together is just the beginning.
Lena was not sure about my suggestion. But soon, she made up her mind.
“… Okay. I will go with you.” She said with a determined face.
“Great.” I smiled. “I’ll tell the servants to get your things ready.”
“Mm… I’ll tell father and mother then. I think I need to do that at the very least.”
I’m sure they will not like it.
… Well, I don’t care if they like it or not.
Now that I think about that, I guess now is a good moment to start the next part of the plan with Lilia, huh. That way, Lilia will not have the composure to worry about if Lena leaves with me or not.
