When I was overjoyed, the strategist narrowed his eyes at me.
“You know that? Then how did you figure it out……ugh!”
My head was suddenly spinning while I was talking, my visions narrowed and I felt suffocated.
It was a pain incomparable to the motion sickness as a result of the teleportation scroll.
When I staggered, Seria and the chairman were surprised but quickly supported me.
“Are you alright?”
The strategist stared at me and said,
“I’d better go back.”
The strategist disappeared as the pain subsided.
‘It’s harder to maintain a soul than to summon a devil.’
When I summoned the devils, I gave them my divine power, and they also have powers themselves.
However, when I was in power over the souls, I had to use my own power for everything.
I don’t know how to maintain the devil without wasting divine power, so I was always losing strength everytime.
‘I need the devils to teach me how to control my divine power.’
Thinking that way, Seria brought me a glass of water again.
After drinking the water, I was able to come to my senses.
“How are you, little miss?”
“I want to go home……”
As I mumbled, Seria and the chairman were surprised.
‘Oh no, it’s hard to maintain adult thinking after all of that.’
In all of my life, I could control my adult thinking easily when I was about nine years old.
‘I see, if I work hard, I could control my adult thinking but I could go back to my physical age anytime.’
In my previous life, I didn’t know because I had never used much of my strength.
“I’d better go home first.”
I mumbled with a gloomy face, and the chairman nodded.
“Yes, I’ll take you back.”
Seria looked at me like she had a lot of questions. I never told her about my identity and the devil.
I held her hand.
“I will tell you everything soon. I was going to tell you today but now I’m—“
“Don’t worry, I’ll be waiting.”
I smiled slightly as Seria said so.
‘Seria always trusts me.’
“I believe in Seria too.”
“It’s an honour.”
I waved to Seria and left.
When I moved to my room in the house, the chairman laid me on the bed and covered me with a blanket.
“Really, you’re…I thought you knew how to do it properly because you were confident.”
“No, I didn’t know it was this hard.”
“You really didn’t know?”
The chairman was surprised as I avoided his eyes.
“……I kind of expected it.You need to take care of your body more!”
“I’ll keep the documents for you.”
I flinched while looking at the table next to my bed,
“It must be there.”
I can’t control my adult thinking so I’ll be caught.
“N, no! That couldn’t be handled easily by anyone.”
“If you need it you can use it later. Worry about yourself first okay?”
“Something like that—!”
I should say no, but the child Leblaine couldn’t lie.
“I’ll keep it. Please let me know when you need it, and I’ll send it to you then.”
“Don’t think about going anywhere and take a break for a while. Seria and I will take care of Vallua.”
“Sleep and rest first okay!”
Then he left with all the documents I had hidden next to the bed.
My condition didn’t improve the next day.
I couldn’t wake up in the morning, and I woke up at noon.
As I left the room, the three brothers found and approached me.
“You overslept, kid.”
“Good morning, Leblaine.”
Isaac, Henry and Johann spoke in order, I nodded.
As soon as I nodded with my eyes half closed, Isaac widened his eyes.
“What’s wrong with you?”
“Are you tired after the tea party?”
Henry, who said so, stroked my cheek, so I closed my eyes and mumbled, “Yes…”
I kept on yawning.
Then, I heard someone calling me from under the stairs. It was the voice of the maid Laura.
“Lunch is ready.”
I hurriedly ran down the stairs
“Hey, you’ll fall down kid!”
Isaac and Henry hurried after me as Johann followed us from behind.
But I didn’t look back and went into the dining room.
I ate a lot of snacks at dawn, but I was still very hungry.
As soon as I sat down in the chair and raised the fork with an excited face, a large steak with fried eggs, salad, and bread with butter and honey came out.
“Should I prepare more for you?”
The three men sat at the table and looked at me as I was eating my meal while the food was being served.
Isaac smiled and poked my bulging cheeks.
“You’re eating better than usual today.”
“Don’t touch her while she’s eating.”
Henry said while taking off Isaac’s hand.
Meanwhile, my brother’s meals were served. Isaac had meat, Henry had pasta, and Johann had grilled seafood.
“Do you want this?”
Henry asked and I nodded quickly.
“Do you want mine, kid?”
After Henry and Isaac said that, Johann held out his plate.
My brothers chuckled at me when they saw me eating well.
“You’re eating well.”
“…I eat so well.”
When I emptied my brothers’ plates, Isaac and Henry widened their eyes.
“Kid, your stomach will explode!”
The child in me seemed to think ‘More! I can eat more!’
Two people have held my hand from both sides.
“I’ll have more.”
“No, you can’t eat more than that!”
“Wait a minute. Let’s eat again after digesting, okay?”
Someone grabbed me with both hands and lifted me up. It was Johann.
“Get rid of the food.”
While my legs were in the air, Henry and Isaac grab the plates and gave it to the servants.
A childish whine came out of me, so I took a deep breath.
‘What am I talking about? Am I crazy?!’
It was then when I came to my senses, I saw the empty table.
At that time, I heard someone said at the door of the dining room.
“Why do you bother your younger sister?”
It was my dad’s voice.
“I didn’t bother her.”
Isaac and Henry looked at our father.
Dad strode over and carried me carefully.
“What’s the matter?”
Dad asked the butler who was serving the meal. The butler spoke with a perplexed face.
“That……the masters were stopping little miss’ meal.”
“Why don’t you give as much as she wants?”
Then Isaac said.
“She ate all of that.”
Numerous plates on the hands of the servants were empty.
After looking at the empty plates, my father looked at my bulging stomach, and I couldn’t breathe well because I ate too much.
I burped without realizing it. When he heard that, my father said quietly,
“Bring the digestive medicine.”
A few days later, the Duchess of Vallua, who attended a charity auction, a social event in spring, bit her lips tightly.
Not a single person has spoken to her since she came to the party.
Sales of the teleportation device, made by the Duke of Vallua had begun, but not a single person came to the store.
As the device is very expensive, no one could buy it easily or they waited for the price of Dubbled’s device to be exact.
The Duke of Vallua suffered from severe financial difficulties, also his wife and his son, Niel, had been punished by the Security Office for illegally taking out the Bible’s translation, so there were no nobles who wanted to approach them.
‘I didn’t want to come to this party, either!’
If her husband had not borrowed funds for the development of the device, she would not come.
“Sir Lane bought a Yuriaden vase for 500,000 francs!”
When the organizer shouted, exclamations erupted from all over the place.
‘500,000 francs? For one vase?’
The startled Duchess of Vallua looked at him.
The man who had spent money on a vase enough for a family to live comfortably for a year, smiles and hands out his pocket to the organizers.
A thunderous applause erupted when the organizer of the event, who checked the diamond filled pocket, exclaimed.
‘Lane…well, they’re the Lane family. I heard they run a loan business secretly.’
The man, who received a vase from the organizer, stood near the Duchess of Vallua and said,
“Nice to meet you. I am Noah Lane.”
“……I’ve heard a lot about you.”
“It’s an honor to be recognized by a distinguished lady. I’ve been wanting to see you.”
The Duchess of Vallua glanced at him, while flapping her fan.
“You mean me?”
“Because we’re comrades.”
The Duchess of Vallua glanced at him.
“What do you mean?”
“If our enemy is the same, we’re comrades, aren’t we? I deeply sympathize with you.”
“……do you mean the Dubbleds?”
“To be exact, the lucky, adopted little miss of Dubbled.”
The Duchess of Vallua was surprised.
“Tell me in detail. What do you mean?”
“I’m waiting for a child of true destiny. It’s not that fake.”
