Duke’s beautiful tailor - Chapter 16
She cried, but now was not the time to cry. Helena didn’t hesitate any longer after she had made up her mind.
“Then where do we start? Jerome, how far did my father make a promise to the duke? Haven’t you received any specific costume orders yet?”
“He had already prepared everything.” Jerome replied with a light sigh.
“Last week was the promised time to visit the duke, but the duke postponed it in the letter saying that he has a few more orders to be sent in addition to the ceremonial clothes.”
Will spoke after him.
“Lady will meet the duke in person, and will make the clothes under the guidance of Master. I hope that Lady will convince the duke to order the clothes from us. Master will surely come back to the store when he recovers to some extent, so wouldn’t it be helpful to emphasize that point?”
“Will he allow it?” Helena said with a worried look on her face.
The nobles, including the Duke of Bronant, used <Book of Knights> after seeing Raynor Stud’s personal talent and fame. Even if Tobias came forward to persuade the duke, it was not known what would happen.
Tobias started learning from his father when he was six years old, and when he was fifteen, he officially entered the society as a Stud.
Even though he was the heir to the family, he was still young.
Moreover, the Duke of Bronant was one of the founding families of the Rasue Kingdom. When Helena’s great-great-grandfather began to gain fame as a successful tailor in the capital city of Siern, the family of Bronant produced a queen and enjoyed great power.
There was no way they could let a commoner woman who was not qualified no matter what shop she belongs to make clothes for such a person who was the head of such a family, and that was not even ordinary clothes.
But despite their obvious understanding of these circumstances, Jerome and Will were far more optimistic than Helena.
“There is no need to tell the duke everything about the truth. The duke probably knows that Master can’t travel, so we’ll just have you replace Will.”
Helena tilted her head and Will smiled lightly.
“Duke Bronant has met Master Toby a few times. So, although he knows my name well, he has never met me. What if Lady uses my name as your own, and dresses up as a man?”
Will’s plan was very shocking.
But Helena was not surprised. It was a surprising suggestion, but when she thought about it, it might be the best thing to do.
In fact, the best way is to visit the duke directly together with Toby, but the fact that Will had never dealt with a nobleman so far bothered him. The nobles were so picky that even Raynor Stud had a lot of trouble at times.
It’s not an ordinary contract, and in a situation where the fate of <Book of Knights> is at stake like now, you have to pay special attention to each word and every expression than usual. It was not an easy task for Will, who was not familiar with the manners and speech of the nobles.
“I think it’ll be fine to try Will’s suggestion.”
Helena thought for a moment, then slowly opened her mouth.
“But if I dress up as a man and meet the duke, I will be deceiving him.”
