“You need to see a doctor. Please wait, I’ll ask them to come here.”
Johann shook off my hands.
He looked at me with a rather blank look.
“You have many cuts. It will cause a scar even if your poison is purified! If you hide it again, I will tell everyone.”
When I looked at him threateningly, Johann’s hand slowly loosen.
I managed to get a doctor and I even called dad.
Seeing Johann lying in bed, Dad became gloomy. He looked angry yet sad.
“Does it hurt?”
“I’m here to see your condition by Dubos’ orders.”
He said the reason why he’s here. I sigh.
‘The dubbled’s are so stubborn’
His stubbornness seems to be from genetics. Not only Johann, but dad, Henry, and Isaac were all stubborn.
“You hide it from me without fear.”
Look at that. He never says he’s wrong. Dad’s eyes grew colder.
“The doctor said he had to take medicine and eat his meal first.”
Dad who was frowning at Johann, sighed.
He heard some more of Johann’s condition from the doctor, and only then did he leave the room.
The room was quiet again after the doctors and the employees left.
“Is this what you want?”
Johann asked coldly and I narrowed my forehead.
“I should have let dad scold you more.”
Then I sat down on a chair beside his bed. I scooped the soup that was placed on the bedside table and served it to him.
“It’s a medicine prescribed by a doctor, he said you need to eat first before taking the medicine.”
“Hurry up. Or I’m going to go out and tell people that Johann is sick!”
I give him the soup one more time. He soon opened his mouth a little after staring at the spoon I had put out for a while.
As soon as he swallowed the soup, I held out the spoon again.
“That’s right. One more time.”
“Just one more time.”
“Hey, a little bit more. Can you finish this?”
“Wow, it’s really the last time.”
He emptied the soup from the small bowl and I put out the medicine.
“Eat this much, and today’s annoyance is over!”
Johann sighed and swallowed the pill. He gazed at me threateningly but I wasn’t afraid of him anymore.
Days after that.
Johann stared at Leblaine, who came into his room.
Today she picked up a bunch of flowers and put them in a vase as she stared at it with ecstatic eyes.
In recent days, that child has been in and out of my room in an obvious way.
When she came, she talked about many things, and then went back.
“Did you eat?”
“What about your medicine?”
“The chef made shrimp soup today, and it was delicious. Tomorrow, he said he’s going to make chicken soup.”
Even if I kick her out, she comes again in the afternoon and asks if he ate, took medicine, and his condition.
Leblaine sat on a chair beside the bed as usual.
Then she put her elbows on the bed and began to chatter.
“So, Viscount Dubos was very upset. Dad didn’t say anything, but I think he was pretty scared.”
“And today, Yuni mismanaged her laundry water, so everyone had to wear blue tinted clothes. The butler scolded her. They’re going to bring in new clothes tomorrow.”
I ignored her chatter and tried to read a book, but I couldn’t even focus.
“So, we had french toast in the morning and it was really delicious. Oh, right. The tea was really nice today too. The doctor said you can drink too. Lea, get me the tea.”
That kid was really weird.
At first, she was scared like everyone else, but at some point, she became the most annoying person in the world.
It wasn’t just that kid alone. Even those that were affected by that kid were annoying.
Isaac visited me last night. He looked at me with a sulky look on his face, at first, I wondered if he came in to quarrel, but he suddenly put a wild boar to my bedroom.
“I was just passing by, so I brought it. I didn’t mean to catch it.”
Henry had also come in the morning. He hugged an armful of the documents and said,
“You don’t have to do this. It’s a lot of pressure.”
The next person to come was my father. My father often come with LeBlaine and looked at him silently for about half an hour before going back.
As soon as I had my eyes fixed on the book, I suddenly noticed LeBlaine, who had been talking for a long time, stopped talking.
I glanced at her, she sat in the chair and buried her face in my bed as she fell asleep.
Johann looked at the child gently.
Her plump cheeks were like soft dough, her small and round nose was cute, and her mouth was like a baby chick.
She’s just a normal child, yet such a child was changing the castle.
This place was always buried in silence and darkness, but now it was very lively and bright. The floor, which used to be hard, was now covered in a soft carpet to make sure that the child wouldn’t get hurt.
‘Well, she indeed fell very often.’
She often runs the garden, the greenhouse, and the hallways. Then, even if she fell down, she quickly got up and ran again without crying once.
She doesn’t act like a noble lady, she was just a normal child.
The petite, half-asleep child held Johann’s hand in both hands. Johann casually reached out for her curly hair.
Soon, the maid came in after a knock. On top of the tray was black tea which Leblaine had asked for Johann.
The maid left the tea on the table.
“I’ll take her.”
“No, leave her be.”
Johann, who already woke up, laid the child on the bed.
The maid was visibly shocked for a moment, but she soon smiled.
Even in Johann’s room, which had always been dark, a gentle sun was seeping in.
The sun was setting steadily when I woke up. I slowly blinked.
As my blurred vision became clearer, I could see an unfamiliar ceiling.
I came to nurse Johann and fell asleep.
‘Oh no, I slept in the patient’s bed…’
While I was panicking, I felt a gaze from the sofa. It was Johann’s.
I looked at Johann and said,
I kicked him out as a patient and took over the bed after all.
I thought he would be mad, but what I heard from him was unexpected.
“Do you want anything?”
“I’ll give you a gift for nursing me.”
“I didn’t do it for that.”
I’m sincere. Johann murmured as I frowned.
“It means I want to give something to you regardless of your purpose.”
‘So that must mean a thank you to me.’
I laughed inwardly.
Well, I don’t really want anything……While I was thinking that, I suddenly thought of something.
His hair was also okay, but it is easier and faster to simply receive his mana at once.
Johann said while narrowing his forehead.
“It would be useless to you though.”
He stared at me for a moment and said.
“I’m so excited!”
As I jumped and rejoiced, I could hear a little laugh.
I widened my eyes and looked at Johann. His lips were curled up.
“You really look like a baby chick.”
I thought his smile would look similar to dad’s, but his smile is completely different.
‘Maybe his smile is similar to Risette?’
I laughed along with Johann as I thought about it.
When I came back from dinner, there was a white stone on my bed. It was Johann’s Mana Stone.
That evening, I looked at Johann’s Mana Stone with a happy face in the corner of the garden when there was no one.
‘It truly is an amazing power.’
[Now give it to me.]
‘It’s a waste to just pass it on, shall I split it up?’
Pymon who shouted frowned.
“Where did you learn about such a thing!”
“You asked for a pure mana, but you didn’t ask for this mana stone.”
“Isn’t it something you didn’t need anyway?”
“If it’s such a precious mana stone, it must’ve a lot of uses. I’m sure they’ll pay a lot of money if I sell it to the tower right now.”
“The richest man here is your father, why are you doing this!”
“Well, the more money the better.”
Pymon was very panicked and looked impatient.
“Give it and I’ll make you many money.”
“I’ll make you many jewels!”
“No, instead give me the knowledge I didn’t know. Information report is your talent. Can that knowledge be transferred?”
I’ll get information about long-distance travel.
When I widened my eyes with a look of ‘Don’t even think about cheating’. Pymon stopped talking.
But he couldn’t take his eyes off Johann’s Mana Stone.
It would be hard to find such a pure mana everywhere. The usually black Mana Stone was as white as a pearl.
Seeing Pymon so eager to have it, I thought I was right.
It was when I was walking towards Gazebo,
A light emerged in front of my eyes.
And what appeared……was a long-haired young man dressed in unusual clothes, waving a luxurious fan, a middle-aged man with a stubble and beard, and a woman with a nursing suit.
The middle aged man said,
“Who called upon us?”
I looked at Pymon.
He turned to the three people on his back and opened his arms.
“These are all the powers I boast of.”
“Pick one. Who do you want to put in your Etwal?”
