I snuggled to my dad as he smiled gently.
Those who saw the Duke’s affectionate expression were more shocked than when they heard the ‘50 million francs.’
My dad who was gently stroking my back asked,
“But what do you want?”
I waited for the word.
‘The people already heard about my pocket money so…….’
I made an innocent expression.
“There is something. I went to the shopping district fountain today. The chairman told me the legend of the nymph.”
“Yes! There is a mysterious stone called suwon in Nymph’s lake. A long time ago, a warrior had a sword, shield, and suwon.”
The nobles nodded as they listened to my story.
“Is it the legend of warrior tesla?”
“I know the story of the warrior and the devil. I remember asking my parents to buy Tesla’s sword when I was young.”
“It’s from our time, kids don’t know it these days.”
I raised my arms and continued.
“Daddy is the strongest in the world, right?”
“The warrior is the strongest man in the world. My father is the strongest warrior. So I’m going to buy suwon!”
Then people burst into laughter.
“I think I know why Dubbled spoiled the child so much.”
“This kind of daughter is so cute.”
Right? Didn’t I acted totally like a kid.
This old sould which regressed three times was embarassed but I ignored it and laughed inside.
Dad laughed and stroked my head.
“Really? Let’s see if my daughter can get the suwon.”
Hugging my father’s neck, I smiled brightly.
‘I’m definitely going to have it.’
An express ticket to bring Dubbled to the top.
I came into the mansion with my dad and the chairman.
Dad was in a good mood the whole time.
“I’ll go there.”
After talking with a smile, I dragged the chairman to the greenhouse of the mansion.
“Tell Curtis to spread the rumor right away.”
“The rumors that I’m trying to have suwon of the Nymph Lake. My dad gives me more than 50 million francs.”
“That’s why you deliberately mention it in front of everyone?”
“All noble fights begin with a public opinion fight.”
I raised my head as the chairman laughed.
“You’re wise. If rumors come out, the Marquis of Nodelli may be scared and give up.”
In that case, there is no need to compete for purchase with Nodelli in the first place, so the price will not increase.
Hopefully, it would be possible to buy the mine for half the original budget, or even less.
“Also, hyenas will hear the rumors about the nymph lake. If the rumours came out about me buying an abandoned mine, the owners of the abandoned mine will rush to ask me to buy it.”
“I’m going to get Curtis to know what’s going on.”
I nodded my head.
The problem is that there is Seria wasn’t at the hope merchant guild right now.
The Marquis of Nodelli has already begun buying abandoned mines. The rumors had to be spread before they invested too much money and it became difficult to get it.
‘Will Curtis be able to carry out my orders as thoroughly and quickly as Seria?’
However, contrary to my concerns, Curtis’ progress exceeded Seria.
In just three days, rumors spread throughout the empire.
It is also very satisfactory.
A few days later.
While walking on the street, I heard people gossiping.
“You said the Duke of Dubbled is trying to find the nymph’s lake for his daughter?”
“Should I call this funny or romantic…?”
“If it’s the Duke of Dubbled, wouldn’t it be possible?”
With the sound of laughter, I raised the corners of my mouth.
‘I put my dad’s name at the front of the rumors.’
Good job, Curtis!
Rumors swell and spread faster as they become entangled with those in power.
Since Duke Dubbled is in thethe one rumoured rather than Lady Dubbled, there was no one who didn’t know that “Dubbled is aiming for suwon”
‘I think I have a lot of good luck in this life.’
I was smiling with my hands covering my mouth, as the godmother who was on her side asked,
“You must be in a good mood today.”
“That’s a relief.”
“My godmother looks happy too.”
“The matters that concerned me were all finished.”
She covered her mouth with a fan, but her eyes were bent gently.
I asked her quietly.
“About your daughter-in-law?”
Camilla and I become very close. She told me many
interesting stories, but sometimes about her worries.
‘Even stories about the grand duchess.’
“Her family eventually moved away right?”
“Yes. It lasted for a long time.”
My godmother folded the fan as it made a noise.
‘She’s a scary person too.’
Because the Grand Duchess family would definitely become a leech after their marriage, she drove them away.
I don’t know what method she used but the Grand Duchess’ family, who was burning with desire would move away voluntarily means it must be an extreme method.
When I said it, my godmother grinned and stroked my head.
“Thank you. So, shall we go in?”
Today is the day of a big social event, a charity party.
The event is organized by Lady Estera, who is close to the godmother, so me and godmother also decided to participate in the charity party.
“You said my friends were coming, right?”
“Yes, and…… no, let’s leave this as a gift.”
I tilted my head, but my godmother turned away.
“You’re about to attend the seminary right?”
“Yes, When my brothers leave for the academy this fall, I’m going to go to the seminary.”
All noble children usually go to the seminary, the Imperial Academy or the Institute of the Gifted.
The seminary is an essential educational institution for the capital city nobles.
Geniuses like my older brothers go straight to gifted school, but most of them go to the seminary first.
Also, that place is the best place to build networks as it is the school for all noble children.
‘I decided to go to the seminary and get an education.’
It was an inevitable choice because there were many people who wanted my life or strength.
We can go in and out of the seminary accompanied by guards. So security was not a problem.
“You can introduce yourself to the kids who are going to go to the seminary at the party today.”
“That’s why they’re all making a fuss about getting invitations to this party!”
“Yes, the spring charity party is also a pre-arranged event for the seminary students to form groups.”
Godmother gently continued,
“Don’t worry about anything.”
I grinned and put my face in her hand.
It was a good investment to have this godmother.
When I entered the party, the ladies raised themselves and greeted us.
My godmother smiled and nodded.
“Thank you for your hospitality. Everyone, sit down.”
I also greeted other people politely.
“Hello, Mrs. Yucelta, Mrs. Rodin, Mrs. Ariwood.”
The ladies welcomed me with a big smile.
“Nice to meet you, young lady.”
There were quite a few familiar faces among the people greeting me.
As it was an event organized by a close acquaintance of godmother, I knew many people.
My godmother’s people were all friendly and had a good personality.
I didn’t have a mother and they took care of me, so that I didn’t feel left out at events with my godmother.
“The children are gathered in the garden over there. Have fun together. Hm, do you want a juice?”
I greeted many people and went to the garden.
“Welcome. Come here!”
‘How can everyone be so nice and cute?’
I looked back at the eager children.
Maybe they were told to take good care of me by their parents, but everyone was eager to take care of me.
“Yes. Ah, You’ve already bought juice…”
A little girl with amber hair had a sullen look on her face, apparently holding juice for me.
“I can have two!”
“I’ve prepared it too…”
“I can drink three cups!”
We laughed as I picked up the juice.
The children are cute, the garden is beautiful, and everyone is kind.
‘I feel like I’ve fallen into a sweet world.’
I had a lot of fun because I had never been close to my peers in the past.
‘But since people character’s are different-‘
“You there, save me a seat.”
“Get out of my way.”
– there must be some children who are not friendly.
A lady with blonde hair and dark spots on her cheeks was beside a lady with beautiful curly hair as they walked with arrogant expressions.
‘Lady Yucelta and Lady Lloyd.’
They are from a powerful family, so they were leaders of the children in many parties.
Lady Yucelta grinned and grabbed my hand.
“Hello, Lady Dubbled.”
“I watched the virtual battle before. My dad is the guard of the imperial palace! How is Johann doing?”
On the other side, Lady Lloyd held my other hand.
“You were amazing in the virtual battle! But isn’t Isaac here?”
From a distance, a sound of excited footsteps came towards me.
“You remembered me! I’m glad. How is Henry doing?”
Thanks to having three handsome brothers, I was popular among the girls.
The three children were blushing.
I said with an awkward expression.
“Shall I bring them here next time?…?”
I was surprised by their shouts. The children grinned as I flinched.
“The three don’t come to parties very often.”
“Yes, I’m curious because I can’t see him often…….”
I smiled at them.
I knew they were popular, but this much?
I asked because I was curious.
“Are my brothers so popular?”
The young children shouted in surprise.
“Of course, the three princes of Dubbled are indeed……aah.”
“Lonely silver, Johann…….”
“Crimson melody, Henry.”
“Dark charisma, Isaac!”
I blinked as I had an ominous feeling,
“Lonely silver,crimson melody, dark charisma! They earned that nickname recently.”
“I don’t know who made that, but it’s a really good nickname! Right?”
It was nicknames that would make my older brothers go berserk if they heard it.
I gulped while imagining it,
A blonde lady with a lively voice entered the garden.
I looked back in surprise.
Why is that girl here?
Princess Ingrid and Marquis Nodelli never attended events by godmother or her acquintance because they didn’t have a good relationship.
Seeing me, Lady Nodelli tilted her head.
“Oh my, What brings you here, Lady Dubbled?”
“I don’t think you can’t attend this event. It’s a mother-daughter event, and the love… wait, you don’t have a mother, do you?”
“Ah, right. It wasn’t just a mother that you don’t have.”
She looked at me up and down.
‘Look at this?’
