“I told you to let go of me!”
When Isaac shouted, Mina narrowed her forehead and then burst into laughter.
“You’re still the same…”
“The aggressive person actually has the sweetest heart.”
“What do you think? Am I right?”
When Isaac couldn’t say anything. Henry, who was one step behind them, slapped Isaac’s back.
Isaac managed to balance and frown.
Mina looked alternately between Isaac and Henry.
“Henry, it’s dangerous-”
When Mina said that, Henry cut her off and turned to Cardinal Reginald.
“If you want the second child to establish a foundation in the empire, you’d better teach her manners at least.”
When Henry pointed that out, he smiled coldly.
Glancing at Mina, he continued.
“Please teach manners to the second child of fate so that she would act appropriately next time.”
Mina’s expression darkened, and Reginald’s lips curled up. Henry left his seat and led Isaac away.
It was not until they couldn’t see Mina and Reginald that Henry talked.
“Are you out of your mind?”
“There’s a wild dog that hasn’t learned manners. You cannot be swayed by her. Please remember that you carry your family name.”
“I know, I know.”
“Be careful if you know.”
“Strangely, I can’t resist that girl. Don’t you think so too?”
“It’s true… anyway, it’s weird.”
Henry stopped walking and stared at Isaac.
“I know what you’re thinking, but it’s not like that at all, so don’t look at me like that.
“Don’t even dream of it.”
“It’s just she said something strange just now.”
Henry lightly clicked his tongue when Isaac said that. Now, there was something that bothered him more than his stupid younger brother.
“You’re still the same…”
Mina’s words were strange. What she added later felt like an urgent excuse.
‘It must be nothing much.’
Henry, who was rubbing his chin lightly, lifted his communication device. After flashing several times, the voice of Viscount Dubos was heard.
“What about him?”
[If you’re calling for Irshy, he had just returned from his mission]
“Attach him to the second child of fate.”
[How far does he need to go?]
“Don’t miss even a single moment.”
Even though Mina indicated that she remembered her first life, he will prepare everything necessary to counter her.
I wandered around the study all afternoon and sometimes looked at the window to see if there were any carriages that returned. When I was impatient, Zachary, who was appointed as the captain of my escort, said,
“Even if you act like this, time won’t pass faster, my lady.”
“Why are they so late? Did something go wrong?”
“If something was wrong, they would have called me. Sit down and wait. Your energy will be drained before the two young masters come.”
I really need the engelot. I have to summon Marcocia with that to get out of this child’s body.
Look. It is difficult for a child’s body to hide their emotions.
“I don’t think it’ll be bad to grow up like this.”
Zachary said as he shrugged his shoulders.
“So in the end, all that matters is that the temple doesn’t know that you’re Leblaine, who was chosen by evil God. You said you’ve returned to your child form but you look quite different.”
“Then can’t you just live a new life as someone other than Leblaine Dubblede? Even if others are aware of your identity, there is no way to prove that you are Leblaine.”
“The point is not that.”
I pointed at Zachary and said.
“Lwook, my eyes were close to sky blue, but now they’re blue. It’s dawkew today than yesterday. (Look, my eyes were close to sky blue, but now they’re blue. It’s darker today than yesterday.)”
“Isn’t that better?”
“No-! If this continues, I will not be modern Leblaine, but the ancient Leblaine.”
For the past seven years, I was able to talk comfortably to my people and Zachary in the hope mercenary guild because I confessed that my previous life was Neliard’s sister.
As time went by, the body was becoming an ancient Leblaine. My brown hair was gradually turning white.
In my memories, me and Neliard had white hair and dark blue eyes.
After I died in ancient times, I could do regressions. And after being born in modern times, I gained the ability to summon devils as a child of fate.
In other words, my modern power will weaken as it goes back to ancient times.
I can’t hear the voice of the devils as clearly as before.
‘I have Mina’s etwal, but etwal is just a medium that facilitates the devils.’
Just as I summoned Boone before I got etwal, Mina could also summon the devil without etwal.
Of course, if we summon him without etwal, we won’t last a day like me when I was four. If not, we could die and go crazy.
‘It may not be possible to make them become her subordinate like when she have the etwal. And there is a big difference between being able to summon a devil and not having it.’
But if what Mina called out is the devil who chose Neliard and is favorable to her, what if Mina orders it to attack me?
‘I will die quietly without anyone suspecting her.’
Didn’t I experience it when Glashalabolas attacked me? It would be difficult for me to beat it. That’s why I had to be prepared.
Zachary groaned and nodded.
“It would be hard to grow up with that body.”
“That’s why I nweed to have the engelot. Also…”
“What is it?”
“If I stway in this body, I think I will eat all of my family’s food. (If I stay in this body, I think I will eat all of my family’s food.)”
Today alone, I boasted a tremendous appetite. To the point where my dad orders the servants to take my plate in case my stomach bursts.
Just then, through the open window, I could hear the sound of the horse. Looking out the window quickly, I smiled broadly.
Henry and Isaac looked up at the room on the second floor where I was at, so I quickly crawled down from the drawer by the window and hurried down to the first floor.
I put my hands together and stared at both of them with twinkling eyes.
“How did it go?”
“I stopped them from taking it from the temple. My father and eldest brother overturned the central tower (a meeting of the noble with voting rights), and they supported it.”
I raised my arms up because Isaac said victoriously.
“Isaac, you’we so amazing!”
“That’s right, I’m awesome.”
“Did we get the engelot?”
Isaac glanced at Henry.
“You say it.”
“Why don’t you say it yourself?”
“You need to deliver the bad news.”
When I looked at Henry anxiously, he bent one knee and looked at me.
“We handed suwon over to the Imperial Palace in the great drought and told His Majesty that I wanted engelot in return for offering spinel every year.”
“However, the opposition of the temple was stronger than expected, so His Majesty agonized greatly. You know that the temple has established a relief center since two years ago and has sent healing priests to various places too, right?”
“If they close the relief center at once, many people will be implicated. So….”
When Henry hesitated, Isaac said, clicking his tongue as if he couldn’t help it.
“It will be given as a prize in a competition.”
“There will be a competition for the 7 families this year.”
Competition for 7 families is to commemorate Fried I, the first emperor, joining forces with the 7 families.
In short, a competition will be held among 7 chosen families at the time.
Unlike the virtual battle of boys and girls under the age of 17 once every four years, the adults will participate this time.
Only three of the seven families will survive, so with the support of the nobles, seven families are selected and engaged in a virtual battle.
‘The competition of the 7 families is held once every 10 years on the founding festival. Wait, this year is the 10th year, and founding day is at…….’
While counting the days, I looked at Henry and Isaac.
“We’ll see them in two weeks. What should I do when I’m done applying?
“The emperor extended the application date. Mina was temporarily listed to a family by the temple. I don’t know who that family is, but…”
Henry, Isaac, and Zachary’s eyes were on me.
‘Yes, I remember.’
Amity will participate in the competition for 7 families this year.
“Amity? Well, if it’s the Duke of Amity, the chances of them winning are high.”
I looked at the three of them with a serious expression.
I saw it in my first life. I don’t know why, but all five dukes, including Vallua, participated in the event.….
“Duke Amity won…!”
