Duke’s Exclusive Painter - Chapter 7
He didn’t distance himself to them, but he didn’t get close to them either. Because I was afraid that my flaws would be seen.
He was also aware that his flaws were not very common. As a result, he unwittingly led a fairly honest life for a man.
Four years later, Cedric Schulach returned to his home country, the Bent Empire, as his father, the Duke of Schlark, was beginning to deteriorate.
After his wife left for heaven, he had already suffered from pain, and eventually died years after Cedric returned to his country. Cedric ascended to the Duke without any problem based on the succession classes he had been receiving.
Over the next few years, as a young Duke. One day an aide spoke to Cedric, who was struggling to do his father’s job.
“Duke, here is the written letter inviting you to visit the exhibition hall od the Sirenzium Academy tomorrow morning.”
“Sirenzium Academy? Why so sudden?”
Cedric frowned at his sudden remark, but then immediately remembered its purpose.
In the Bent Empire, there was a “sponsorship system”, a system in which nobles with titles helped students at the Academy in need of sponsorship in order to give back to the society.
This system was purely for unmarried aristocrats, because sometimes, mishaps between married aristocrats and the academy students would occured.
Adultery is a felony in the Bent Empire. In order to prevent such incidents in advance, the target nobility was limited to unmarried people.
Cedric was also an aristocrat with a title and was single, so he had to officially participate in the sponsorship system. It was decided that he had to visit the Sirenzium Academy.
There are several academies that received sponsorship in Bent Empire, and the high-appointed Academy was by far the most commendatory. As academies focus more on arts rather than academics, many of the students dreamed of becoming artists such as painters or musicians.
When the sponsorship system started, Sirenzium, an academy with distinct personality and characteristics rather than an academic school with many uniform students, attracted the attention of the aristocrats.
If you choose a person to be sponsored well, the sponsor can have great wealth and honor later. This is because when the person who had received the sponsorship becomes successful in the society, the glory naturally returns to the sponsor.
And it can be done by sending money even without ever meeting each other warmly. This is because for a student, the most important thing is the capital, that is, the money that will serve as a back up ship.
Cedric rubbed the corner of his eyes with his hand at the rushing headache.
There are not only one or two projects to be looked at in the peasant family, so time is very tight.
