Chapter 091: I Need a Maid
My Snake family is an emerging noble house. There’s just me at the moment.
Connections are important for aristocrats. By marrying each other, families create new relationships, which can build a faction or cause conflict.
I don’t have parents or siblings anymore…
I killed them when they rebelled against the Kingdom.
So, the only blood relation I have is the Canaan family from my maternal bloodline.
I think it’s fine to be independent, but it does lead to certain issues. It’s difficult to hire servants without connections.
I can’t hire distant relatives if I don’t have relatives, plus I can’t hire classmates since I didn’t attend the aristocratic academy. I attended the military academy, since I was a third son of a Baron.
Now that I’m living in a mansion in the Royal Capital with my pet animal, my biggest problem is cleaning the house. I only use the entrance hall and a bedroom, but I also need to clean the toilet and shower, do my laundry, and buy and cook food.
I should probably get an introduction from the Canaan family.
“I want a maid…” Pat murmurs
My closest friend in the military is Wayne, but Wayne is now under Lieutenant General Simon because of Wayne’s betrothal.
I thought I’d ask Lieutenant General Simon what I should do.
“I need to hire a maid, how would I go about finding one?” Pat
“Maids are normally the fourth or fifth daughters of connected aristocrats. There are maid agencies, but those maids aren’t familiar with noble customs. You need a maid to work in your aristocratic mansion, right?” Lieutenant Gen. Simon
I didn’t realize that maids needed specific education for aristocratic service.
While I was walking around the military barracks, I spotted my Uncle Trolla, the current Baron Canaan.
“Uncle!” Pat called out
“Oh, Patrick! I haven’t seen you around the barracks before. I guess I’m always staying around the royal castle when I’m here, so I never got around to meeting you here! Hah!” Baron Canaan laughs
“Do you know how I could get a maid? I bought a house, but the cleaning is too troublesome.” Pat
“Hmm, you bought a house! Where?” Baron Canaan
“It was the former Viscount Harter mansion.” Pat
“That’s really large for a single person, but for a count… it works. How many people do you need? Baron Canaan
“For the time being, it’s just me and my pet living there, so I think one person could keep it clean.” Pat
“Hmm, I’ll see who I know.” Baron Canaan
“Thank you” Pat says as he bows his head
“A Count doesn’t need to bow so easily! Act a little more dignified!” Baron Canaan says with a laugh
