Today’s party was the 10th anniversary of Count Walt and his wife’s marriage.
Both were born in prestigious families, and the Countess was the godmother of countless ladies. Because of that, there were many young attendees.
‘That’s why my aunt chose Count Walt and his wife’s party as my first party.’
“I haven’t seen you in ages, Countess.”
The Countess welcomed us.
“It’s a great party.”
A few greetings were exchanged, and Countess Walt looked at me.
“This little lady…”
I spread my skirt and bent my knees.
“My name is Leblaine Risette Dubbled.”
“Ah, that…the little miss.”
The countess analyzes me from head to toe. This was the characteristic of socialites.
Since it is the beginning of the faction expansion, everyone is keenly looking at children they have never seen before.
The Countess’ eyebrows were lifted up. However, she smiled brightly, took off her gloves and asked for a handshake.
I smiled inwardly, shaking hands with her.
‘This is because I bent my knees with a perfect angle.’
I really put that much effort just to greet them like that.
The countess said to my aunt.
“Please share a secret on how you educate the child. I was so impressed with her elegant posture.”
“Well, I didn’t teach her anything. I think she learned a few times from the administrator on the estate—”
People flocked while the two were talking.
“Nice to meet you, little miss.”
“It’s nice to meet you.”
“You’re much more elegant than I thought.”
When I smiled and showed dignity without embarrassment despite the pouring greetings, aunt added with an arrogant voice,
“— she must’ve been born with it.”
I got a little shy.
‘I didn’t embarrass my aunt.’
Well done, me!
I grinned inwardly.
When aunt and the adults began to talk, the countess called the black-haired girl.
“Isabella, let me introduce you to the little miss.”
“Shall we go?”
Isabella, who mingled among the children, introduced herself first.
“I’m Isabella Hadero.”
“Nice to meet you, Miss Hadero. My name is Leblaine Dubbled.”
I greeted other children and had a small conversation.
“What academy did Miss Dubbled attend?”
“I studied with the vassals in castle.”
“You must be a fool then?”
The boy stood with one hand holding a glass of juice and walked in between the children.
The children split up as if they were red sea and opened the way for him.
He is the second son of Duke Vallua.
Now that I’m living in the capital city, I knew I’d meet him someday. But I didn’t expect to see him so soon.
A terrible memory with that bad guy came to my mind.
“Why can’t you do my homework instead? Ah, I think it’s because you want to be beaten today.”
When I said I couldn’t do his homework, I got slapped.
The day I was so hungry that I stole lettuce from the kitchen at night, he kicked me.
On a day when I couldn’t walk properly because I was sick, he made me run like a horse and giggled with his friends.
I hid my trembling hands beneath my skirt.
“An invitation comes only to the smart kids, isn’t it?”
When Niel spoke to a group of boys who had followed him, they agreed.
Isabella and other children looked troubled and said,
“Th, this is Dubbled’s young miss……”
Niel shrugged at the girl’s words.
That kid becomes more rude because I’m Dubbled’s young miss.
Duke Vallua’s family and Dubbled’s are naturally enemies.
In my second life, Hayton and Niel, the sons of the Duke of Vallua, were told that they should not lose to Dubbled.
But in this life, they lost the right to trade leaves, so they must be more aggressive to Dubbled.
He targeted me because he couldn’t do this to the three sons of Dubbled.
“If she didn’t have a tutor in the estate and learned from the vassals, it’s obvious that she’s a fool.”
“Then where do you go?”
“I went to the Imperial Academy.”
When I saw him hesitating with a scared face, I nodded, “Aha.”
“I guess you went there because you got an invitation.”
With that, all of Niel’s followers agreed.
“Niel is the second son of Vallua, his bloodline is great.”
“The Duke of Vallua gave all of his best resources to his sons.”
“His level is different from other people.”
Niel soon glared at me and shouted.
“Of course! You think I’m a fool like you? I already decipher the Bible and memorize it.”
The children exclaimed their admiration.
No one at that age starts memorizing or deciphering the Bible. It’s mostly learned in higher education institutions. So I only learnt it when I was 18.
The Bible was different from the imperial language as it was a book written a long time ago. It was very difficult to interpret because of the mixture of imperial and ancient languages.
‘How much do you know the Bible?’ This question was believed to measure our knowledge.
The followers of Niel smiled and did not miss any chance.
“You’re like the Dubbled’s sons!”
“Even the Dubbled sons will not be able to decipher the Bible.”
When everyone looked surprised, Niel, who was arrogant, began to take the Bible.
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth……”
When the children admired him, even the eyes of the adults were focused on him.
They started to gather one by one and we ended up being surrounded by a huge crowd.
“Can the Dubbled brothers interpret the bible?”
When someone asks, a lady with a fan said,
“I am very worried about his growth, he always surrounded himself with books and newspapers, he started getting interested in the bible last year.”
“What are you worried about? I envy you, Duchess of Vallua.”
The Duchess of Vallua smiled when she saw her son.
As he kept garnering attention, Niel became even more excited.
“God created humans, the humans cherished and loved their brothers. He gave the brothers three potatoes and a handful of oats.”
The eyes of the people were on me at once.
“Did you really interpret the bible? That’s strange.”
Niel who was in the midst of excitement, frowned.
“What’s strange about it!”
“It’s not three potatoes and a handful of oats. The word in the seventh line of chapter 2 is read as potato in the Imperial language, but sadness in the ancient language.”
“It means that God gave them 30% of sadness and 10% of joy. You can’t interpret that for them being full.”
“What nonsense! I’m right. What do you know? This–”
“It’s the translation from the Imperial Palace.”
You didn’t decipher it yourself, you took out a copy from the Imperial Palace and memorized it.
‘A copy from the imperial palace that the Duchess of Vallua secretly get from Empress Yvonne to get his stupid son into the Imperial Academy.’
Niel turned pale.
I continued with a smile.
“I saw a manuscript of interpretation in the library of the Empress, I saw a few pages and they were filled with mistranslations.”
“What mistranslations are there in the academy textbook…!”
“Last week, the priests announced that they could finally read some of the ancient language. Didn’t you read that because you liked the newspaper so much?”
Niel couldn’t say anything as the adults spoke.
“That’s right. It’s strange…”
“Yes, it’s usually not read as oats.”
At that time, my aunt, who came into the crowd, and Countess Walt, the host, ran towards us.
The countess asked us,
At that time, my aunt, who came into the crowd, and Countess Walt, the host, ran over me.
“I interpreted it when I was bored at the estate. It’s fun!”
Niel shouted as I deliberately put a sullen expression.
“It can’t be! Even my brother can’t do that! Even in the church, they only interpreted eight chapters and ninety-two lines!”
“You mean that God lost his ignorance and the world became disordered, as the shepherd prayed for 193 days for the grieving humans?”
In an instant, silence came to the room.
While those people were covering up their mouth, I grabbed my aunt’s sleeve.
“Aunt, I want to go to the Imperial Palace library too. There must be many interesting books like the Bible right? I’ll borrow them!”
“The Imperial Palace library is off limits. Only the royal family and authorized personnel are allowed. You can’t borrow them out.”
“But he read the scripture from the Imperial Library…?”
The Duchess of Vallua froze as I tilted my head slightly.
I lifted my eyebrows and said,
“Then did he commit a crime?”
Niel was acting restless, as if something was about to go wrong.
Because the only pride of his life, the Imperial Academy, won’t accept anyone with a criminal background.
Him and his mother were about to get caught soon!
I am excited by the mere thought of it.
