Ahh, Edgar. You do so make me laugh sometimes. ^^;

The scene prior to p43. Edgar angers Lydia and... ^^;


"Raven, would you go to Lydia's office and convince her to open the door?"

Edgar's loyal attendant stood there looking somewhat at a loss. Raven's expression rarely changed, and even though he answered yes, he didn't move to leave.

"You won't do it?"

"No, it isn't that. I think you would be better off asking Kelly."

Naturally, Lydia's lady's maid was the one who was the one best suited to these situations. When Lydia and Edgar were at odds, Kelly would manage to reason with Lydia and keep her from becoming stubborn.

"That's true, but she said, 'Don't look at me!' just a moment ago."

"So, that means you're completely at fault......"

"Never mind, Raven. Could you call Harriet?"

Apparently, Edgar had also angered Kelly. His only other recourse was to try and get the housekeeper to get Kelly to do something. But...

"Master, I'll have a ladder prepared," Harriet said when she appeared with Kelly in tow.

Kelly's expression was firm as she looked down. Apparently, she had no intention of trying to reason with Lydia.

"That's not a bad idea, but who's going to go charging into her territory?"

Harriet and Kelly stared silently at Edgar. Even Raven looked at him, but he looked away when their gazes met.

"In that case, the most nimble......"

"You've always been very good at sneaking onto other people's wives' balconies, Master Edgar," Raven stated hastily.

Edgar felt Harriet's and Kelly's looks turn even colder as they stared at him, and he finally gave in.

"Alright." He never expected he'd have to climb up onto the balcony to see his own wife, but he had no choice. "You might all be on Lydia's side, but I hope you'll pray that I win this battle."


And what Edgar tells Lydia in his sleep (re pg 43):

E: "......I won't let you."

L: "Eh? You're awake?"

E: "You're my...... war trophy."


I'll give this book this much, the humour in it was really something. ^^;; Poor Paul and Nico.

Still have GH, HakuYou, and Migawari manga to read through. Will finish that easily during the course of tonight.

Poor Edgar. His whole household is against him. LOL He never ceases to amuse me. For someone who's so sauve with the rest of the world, he constantly suffers from foot in mouth disease with Lydia. :)

Oh dear god, I don't want to even think about how many times he's sneaked into a lady's balcony. Even Raven seems to be against him XD

Re: hakyou 4-6

Hi there. Most of my HakuYou translations can be found on the HakuYou translation tracking post (link also on my link list). I'm currently in the midst of translating Ch 5 (of 7) for novel 1. The rest of the posts are snippets and summaries. All of book *18* has been translated and is on my Dreamwidth journal (eventually should make its way to LJ when I have the time to compile and do light editing). Otherwise, I would suggest checking my tag list (check the list for any 'hakushaku~' tags) to search for any posts on my journal that deal with HakuYou. Hope that helps!
