“Sam, the butler, was a drug distributor. Jane in the laundry room is a famous thief. She even robbed a countess.”
I put Laura’s words in my head.
“Then what about Laura?”
“I have no criminal record yet!”
“What are you thinking of?”
“I don’t have it yet…Sometimes I feel like I want to stab people’s throats, so I think it’s going to be very nice.”
That’s how Laura smiled shyly.
“Laura, watch your words in front of the little miss.”
When Lea spoke harshly, Laura said, “Oh,right!” and covered her mouth.
“I’m sorry! I don’t have a history, but I’m born in prison and speak a little roughly.”
“You were born in prison?”
“Yes. My mother was a cult leader. She only found out that she was pregnant in prison. So she gave birth to me in prison, I lived with my mother until I was three, and when I was four, she gave me up.”
That made it difficult for Laura to find a job.
It is said that even though they were looking for a job, they were soon caught, so they often moved from one job to another
” I know all of the employees. But, I’m probably the fastest one to know rumors about the aristocracy!”
When I saw Laura speaking with pride, my eyes glistened.
“Then let me know. Is there any rumor these days?”
“The funniest thing is the story of Sir Constance. He had an affair with his fiancee’s mother!”
Oh my god!
Everyone seemed astonished.
What’s that mess?
This wasn’t what I was really curious about, but it was an exciting story that made me forgot my original purpose.
“Not that. Any other funny rumors?”
“Lord Lane’s story is interesting, too. Lady Roabang is really into him because he’s such a great man. To see him, she canceled her own tea party…”
“What else? Despite the opposition of the vassals and their parents, the Count of Mollywood married an opera singer (a marriage of noble family and commoner), and it turned out that the opera singer is a man. What’s more surprising is that the count found out after the first night.”
Then the maids, unknowingly, shouted, “How is that possible!” Laura said seriously,
“The place where they spent their first night was the dark opera house with no light in it.”
The employees shut their mouths and screamed silently.
I listened to Laura’s story.
At that time, something was vibrating in my pocket.
‘It’s the communication device.’
This was a very expensive magic device I recently bought.
It was so expensive that I thought I was going to cry when I paid for it.
Not only did I buy one, but also bought Seria’s and the chairman’s.
The three of us don’t use it unless it’s really important like this.
When I secretly glanced inside my pocket, it was Seria’s code.
[She took the bait.]
The empress seems to have finally bought the Luminous medicine.
I patted my pocket and fell back into Laura’s story.
Adolf, one of the 21 priest in charge of the central churcj, disobeyed the Empress Dowager.
“Your Majesty the Empress.”
The empress greeted him with a kind smile as always.
Adolf, who was standing, sat in the chair.
‘The fucking old woman.’
Though outwardly like a gentle lamb, he knew how greedy that old woman was.
Five years ago, Adolf, who had gone to prison to pray for a wanted criminal who was about to be executed, returned with a pale face.
“I found the original copy of the Bible.”
“What are you talking about? I’ve been looking for it, but I haven’t even got a clue.”
“I knew where the original Bible was. It is the secret library of the Empress.”
“No way,…. If the empress had found it, she would have given it to us.”
When I went to the place where the wanted criminal told me, the people of the Empress were guarding the place. It is certain that there is a library we do not know.
The wanted criminal’s words were credible.
As a test, when he instructed the Empress to mention the secret library, she immediately relocated the library.
Later, it was confirmed that the workers dug up the old plateau under the order of the empress seven years ago.
‘You pretend you trust the church, but you’re playing tricks behind our back to steal the Bible?’
The empress knew best that the church was searching for the original scriptures of the Bible.
I have to get it in my hands somehow.
With the original copy of the Bible in hand, he could have entered the Vatican, not the central church.
So Adolf kept it a secret from the church and tried for five years to coax the empress.
The empress lifted the teacup with a casual look.
“The child of fate will be participating in this year’s banquet. I was curious how she grew up in Dubbled.”
Adolf replied, “Yes…” with a sullen face.
On February 29, the day the prediction came out, an orphan girl who was born with divine power and became a child of fate but he did not attract his attention.
Her divine power, which was re-verified, was too normal to say that she would save the world.
Even if she had increased her divinity, many people in the church said she’s afake.
“How’s your illness today?”
“It’s much better. Winter has always been tough, but it doesn’t hurt as much with spring coming.”
“I’ve been dispensing holy water. It will make you feel much more comfortable.”
“Oh, thank you.”
Seeing the smiling empress, Adolf said in a quiet voice.
“By the way, Your Majesty. The library you wanted to show me the other day…”
“Now that I think about it, I’m ashamed to show you. I don’t have any special ancient books.”
Adolf’s eyes hardened.
‘You old woman!’
When her skin condition gets worse, She act like she’ll do anything if she can get her treatment and shut my mouth.
Adolf said, smiling awkwardly.
“If I read your books, I might find something more helpful for your illness next time.”
“Oh, right. You don’t have to come and help me with the treatment next time.”
“I found a good medicine.”
“They say it’s a medicine to make us younger.”
The empress put the medicine bottle down on the table and said,
“It’s a trick, but it works. It’s a lot less itchy than any other medicine.”
The priest’s face was distorted.
That medicine has already reduced the number of aristocrats asking for treatment.
The number of donations has been decreasing due to it, so it is hard to report to the superiors.
‘Is it the top of Hope?’
Five years ago, when he tried to pressure Dubbled, the top of hope appeared out of nowhere ruined it.
Not only that, it also lowered Spinel’s market price exorbitantly, plunging the value of the church-owned Spinel mine.
In the end, they were forced to sell the useless spinel mine, and now the top of Hope was almost monopolizing the spinel on the market.
Adolf clenched his fist.
Before of the banquet, I came out to a shopping district with my brothers to buy a dress.
As it was the busiest street of the Empire, it was crowded despite today being a weekday.
“Do I have to walk while holding hands?”
Isaac held my hand tightly and said,
“Yes, you’ll be swept away by the crowd.”
Henry also hold my other hand.
‘Because this is near the church, I should never let go of my brothers.’
I made up my mind and walked bravely. Luckily, the shop was close, so even if there were a lot of people, we could get there without a hitch.
Entering the store, a long-haired man who seemed to be a clerk and the owner ran out.
“My name is Melvin. Welcome to Melvin’s wardrobe.”
The man, whose face was shiny with oil, rubbed his hands and said so.
Melvin is a good designer for noble wives.
His dress was so expensive that it was hard to buy unless they are a high-ranking aristocrat.
So the wives of most noble families used Melvin’s dresses for years.
“The duke’s children are very dazzling today.”
At Melvin’s words, Henry and Isaac sat on the sofa.
“I have finally come up with a design that suits the a noble. It is embroidered with silver thread on a pure white fabric, and a two-button suit…
“Never mind my clothes, take care of my sister.”
Only then did Melvin turn to me.
“She’s the one who…”
As Isaac frowned and corrected him, the startled Melvin nodded, saying, “Oh, yes.
“My shop also has a lot of lovely clothes that go well with little miss. Aliyana!”
As he opened his mouth, the clerks in green dress approached.
“Lady Dubbled, we’ll show you our clothes.”
When she came up smiling, she led me to the hanger.
Meanwhile, Melvin clung to Henry and Isaac and was babbling.
“I heard you bravely destroyed the enemy in your first battle. This Melvin was so moved to hear this news,….!”
Perhaps he was not interested in me at all, not the Duke’s daughter.
In the first place, Dubbled is a very closed place, so rumors don’t go around well, he didn’t know that I’m really loved like his own daughter.
“How do you like this dress? The lace on the chest was designed by Melvin with all his heart and soul.”
They showed me various dresses, but I didn’t really like them.
As my response was lukewarm, the clerk left saying that she would bring a design that was not yet in place.
My eyes grew round when I saw the dress she brought out.
‘Oh, that’s what I wanted to wear in my second life.’
The lace collar was full of sleeves.
‘That was the most popular design of this period.’
The dress, hanging from the window of the Melvin wardrobe, was like a dress for a fairy tale princess.
Would I look like a princess if I wore it? I remember thinking about it.
I really liked that design. It was the moment I put the dress on.
A bright voice shouted.
She is a girl my age with smooth black hair and amber eyes.
“I, I like that one.”
I blinked at the girl’s words.
