Duke’s beautiful tailor - Chapter 41
“There seemed to be no one.”
“Will is always at work in the workshop. He was just making clothes, and he had never met aristocrats in person. He still doesn’t know how to treat the nobles.”
“That’s why you came on his behalf.”
The duke nodded as if his question had been resolved.
“But why didn’t you think of coming to see me in the form you are today? You could have come and asked for a favor for William.”
Helena was suddenly at a loss for words. That thought had never been done. It was impossible at first.
“I hadn’t thought of that.”
“Because the Duke trusted my father. I am not an official tailor nor an administrator belonging to <Book of Knights>, and besides…”
Helena sighed. Even if she had been a formal tailor for the Knight’s Book, she would not have dared to come to the duke directly.
How could Helena, who was just a commoner woman he had never met for the first time, dare to ask the duke of this country if it was a relationship between nobles who had been close from the beginning? At least she knew a little bit about duke as she does now.
In that situation, she might have had the courage to try.
But not so long ago, Helena did not know the Duke of Bronant and was therefore in no position to venture when her family was on the verge of bankruptcy.
Would the strict and conservative aristocrats of Raseng deal with an unnamed young woman and a commoner tailor who lacked proper speech and etiquette? It has never been done. Not only Helena but neither Jerome nor Will thought that such a thing would be possible, so they encouraged Helena to dress up as a man.
Raynor Stud’s name was thus absolute. Even though they are commoners, the real people have no choice but to enter the store due to the name of the craftsman.
However, no matter how prominent the reputation, Raynor Stud was a commoner, so it was difficult to trust the nobles if he did not act himself. The young heirs and apprentices he was raising have not yet been recognized as capable successors to the next great Stud family.
Tobias is already quite talented, but his skills will only be recognized in the next few decades. This is because even the current Raynor Stud has gone through the same process.
“So I thought I wouldn’t be able to find someone like me.”
Duke Bronant clenched his chin and looked at Helena without a word. Why did Helena make such a choice?
It wasn’t that he didn’t agree.
“But it is quite surprising.”
Seeing the duke talking as if muttering, Helena made a puzzled face.
“What are you talking about?”
“It means that you are not part of <Book of Knights>.”
The duke thought for a moment, then said,
“To me, you look like a good tailor.”
Helena was very good at measuring herself. In addition to the samples, she showed various fabrics and explained how to make clothes, so she was so skilled that it was hard to think that she didn’t know anything.
