I’m going to take in Chloe’s very good appearance.
It’s easy to see she looks quite good, but the tailor Samus doesn’t seem to agree.
“She certainly looks intelligent and neat, but the impact is a little weak.” (Samus)
“Maybe so.” (Chloe)
Chloe makes a self-assessment by spinning around while holding the hem of her skirt.
“Bookish girls look intelligent, but are they are suitable for military heroes?”
They look at me accusingly, but I wonder wasn’t it them who first asked about my tastes. I’m sure that’s not an argument these two would let me win.
So I decided to leave the clothes to them.
“Oh, that helps. Then Chloe-chan, next you’ll wear this.” (Samus)
The dress I prepared for her was a pink dress with frills. I thought it wouldn’t suit the cool maid, but I was wrong about this beautiful girl. A beautiful girl would look good no matter what she wears.
“Oh, nice. Chloe looks good with a little Lolita.” (Samus)
“I’m afraid so.” (Chloe)
“It looks good, but it’s not for a newspaper print.”
Speaking from the sidelines, this is what Samus says.
“I just wanted to put this on Chloe-chan, who is a maid, but this is my favorite.” (Samus)
Samus prepares a snug uniform.
It’s a women’s uniform. It was the one that a female officer of the Imperial Army was likely to wear.
“Oh, it’s pretty good, it looks intelligent and very much like a soldier.”
Chloe put it on immediately, but when she actually wore it, it doesn’t look good.
“Is the skirt too long?” (Samus)
Samus prepares scissors, but Chloe and I protested that it’s ridiculous. It is unthinkable to expose the Princess’s precious legs.
Despite this confusion, what was finally chosen was a plain white dress.
Sicily is royal and a general, although there is no military element. I thought it should still be appealing.
“The image of a brave and courageous general is not one that Sicily has. You can put her in armor and put make-up scars on her cheeks, but it will diverge from her own characteristics. I think we should appeal to her being an innocent and compassionate woman here.”
When I said that, Samus agreed.
The dress we had chosen for her was wonderful.
It was white and not too revealing. It was not much, but some parts highlighted her feminine charm. There were cutouts in the skirt, a bit of emphasis on her bosom for a more mature sensual appeal.
Chloe asserted that it would best suit the princess’s skin without having her trying it on.
“ I’m a long-time servant of the princess, so I’m sure of it.” (Chloe)
I agreed with that, so when we decided on this, I asked Samus to refit it.
“Has her Highness gotten fat?” (Samus)
Chloe answers Samus’s inquiry.
“… Hmmm, she gains about a kilogram, and the size of her bra has become tighter.” (Chloe)
I don’t think she could have said it without being overheard, but Samus, the seamstress, uses that information to perfectly refit the outfit.
“Princess has a lot on her chest, and she seems to still be developing.” (Samus)
She said and headed straight to the back of the tailor shop.
I looked at the mannequins and saw that they were fitting the costumes and fixing the chest and other parts.
I wonder if it’s okay not to measure the person herself, but Chloe doesn’t seem to be worried about that.
“She is the number one tailor in the Royal Capital. We shouldn’t worry.” (Chloe)
“What we should worry about is the Princess herself who will return to the Royal Capital tomorrow. She is shy, so she would get nervous in front of the reporters.”
“It seems likely.” (Chloe)
Princess Sicily was originally shy and private, and so it was thought that she would have difficulty with the press. We decided to have a rehearsal when the princess returned, but the opportunity came early. When I returned to the mansion, a servant told me that Sicily would return tomorrow.
“Unexpectedly, it’s an early return. Did she put together all the documents in a day? What a hard-working princess.”
“Her Highness was always known for her diligence and seriousness.” (Chloe)
“That’s all and well, but when you’re dealing with the press, you have to be able to give witty answers.”
Speaking of which, I will make a plan for improving the Princess the next day.
And when Sicily comes back, I will carry this out.
I take the princess, still tired from her long journey, to another room and begin my lecture.
She immediately accepts, but wonders why Chloe is wearing intellectual-looking glasses, a blouse, and a long skirt.
“What is that?” (Sicily)
“It’s Leon-sama’s preference.” (Chloe)
Sicily stared at me, but it was hard to deny because I did say I liked it. So, I will not deny or affirm, instead, I went on to rehearse the questions and answers with the media.
That’s just the basics.
The basic policy was to make any achievements hers, first and foremost.
I said this in advance, but I think it would be difficult for the princess, who is naturally modest. So, practice first.
“Princess Sicily, was it your staff that planned this operation?”
“No, they’re not! It was me! Leon-sama had absolutely nothing to do with this!” (Sicily)
Chloe and I remain silent. I was stunned by her honesty, but I knew I couldn’t go on like this, so Chloe slapped her teacher’s whip firmly.
“No, your Highness can’t answer like that. You must insist that all the credit for everything belongs to you, Princess.” (Chloe)
Chloe said quite firmly
Then, after an hour of correction, it somehow took shape.
“Who invented the Three-Step Firing?”
“I did. I based it on tactics of the Otherworld commander Oda Nobunaga.” (Sicily)
Chloe nodded her head and said, “Excellent.”
I was surprised
“Leon von Almarsh is one of the officers on your staff. What do you think about him? In his other workplace, he is called a ‘Salary Thief’.”
When asked that question, Sicily had tears well up in her eyes, and she bit her lip.
“He is one of my best staff officers. Nothing less, nothing more.” (Sicily)
Well, I suppose I can give her a passing grade somehow.
I couldn’t anticipate all the questions, but I prepared some other questions and answers for the time being. I was busy with the reporter measures until late that day.
The next day, when the tailor Samus arrives, she delivers a dress tailored for Sicily. As expected, she was the best tailor in the Royal Capital. There was not even a hint of a flaw.
Sicily was dressed in her “combat uniform”, and her maids applied her makeup and tied up her hair.
The result was this lovely lady, the most beautiful princess general in the world.
The people around her (including me) let out a sigh and watched the princess go off like a resident of a fairy tale world. The media coverage took place in the media reception room in the military office.
Only Chloe and I will escort Sicily.
