The bedroom was spacious enough to be an adult room.
The furniture was also not the child’s eye level.
It felt strange, as all the structures felt like a firm determination not to let Kiverin go out until he was an adult.
It’s the perfect place to stay, isn’t it?
I sat across the thick duvet bed as Kiverin carefully put down my luggage.
The blanket was completely wrinkled and looked like new, never used.
“Do they change the bedding every time?”
“Uh.. no one’s coming in here.”
It would be difficult for Kiverin to make the duvet like new by himself, so that it looks like the bed had never been used.
“Then where does young master sleep?”
Kiverin pointed to the edge of the wall.
It was a narrow, shady space without even a carpet.
Without realizing it, I wrinkled.
“Then you will catch a cold. From now on, sleep in bed with me.”
“Yeah, but the bed…”
“Is it too big? Are you afraid?”
The boy golden eye staring at me.
Kiverin’s head moved from top to bottom, it’s cute. I feel like raising a child.
…After all, I have to get rid of this possession.
“If you sleep with me, you will be fine.”
Kiverin was bewildered and speak with a sullen face.
“We are couple… that’s it why. If something scary happens to me in the future, please help me to overcome it.”
He didn’t reply, so I look around moderately.
First, I found a place to sleep.
I tied my purple hair into a braid and ready to explore the big mansion.
Next, it was time to check the food.
“Can you guide me to another place? Let’s start with the dining room.”
Is Kiverin going to keep talking respectfully with me?
Even though the Saint was born into my family, the Count of Mayall is still below if we compared it to the Duke of Nectarian.
Did Kiverin know what family I’m from?
Considering the Duchess’s eagerness to get out of here quickly, she might have telling him my name.
The kitchen that we arrived was filled with food and have a high pantry to some extent.
There was no consideration for children like the bedroom. No milk, it has no snacks for a child to eat. Vegetables and fruits were placed too high, like a seasoning.
All kinds of seasonings, including wheat, were the same.
I was shocked and burst out laughing.
I dragged the chair and looked up. Still, my fingertips barely skimmed the lowest shelf.
“Ugh, I can’t.”
Why did they put it so high?
Kiverin is the same height as me, so he wouldn’t be able to take it too.
It was impossible for a child to cook by himself, Is cooking who was supposed to be Kiverin’s new toy.
Eventually I gave up and got off the chair.
I and Kiverin reached for raw meat, cold water, and a small amount of dried tea leaves.
We’re not a life like animal, it’s just meat to eat for living.
The only dish that could fill the nutrients.
I cursed inwardly and called Kiverin.
“Young master, what have you been eating?”
Kiverin shrugged his shoulders.
“I don’t mean to question you. From now on, you have to eat the same thing.”
I got up and looked at the top shelf.
At first glance, the vegetables looked fresh.
I see that someone comes and refills the ingredients, and then I have to ask them to take them all out.
And also I need a ladder.
This was a mansion was bright.
There was a large room, an extra-large bed, and various ingredients, but it was not good enough for two 10-year-olds.
Kiverin shut his lips tightly.
He didn’t seem to want to answer.
I didn’t want to rush and ask questions, who still far away, so I turned around.
“Okay, let’s go to the library. I need something to write.”
The library was dusty, but there were a lot of books.
I took out a piece of paper and a quill and wrote down the necessary items.
I borrowed Cheria memory, a former possessor, and tried to use the Imperial language, but the result was bad.
Seeing my handwriting, Kiverin made a puzzled face.
“…The quill is too big for my hand.”
I explained a little.
My handwriting will get better with time.
The more I looked around the mansion after I finished writing, the more my face became wrinkled.
The bathroom was more inconvenient to use than the bedroom.
The terrace, located in a good view, was locked from the outside.
After staring at the locks that appeared from all over the place one by one, I realized one thing.
…Walking around the mansion, I never saw the window open.
I went to the nearest window.
“It’s also locked outside…”
Crazy. It was a luxurious prison.
Hah! Whether you’re a newcomer or a writer, don’t you think before writing! Please cancel it!
He didn’t do anything wrong!
“I, there, I’m sorry….”
Seeing my half-turned gaze, Kiverin was startled.
I reassured Kiverin that it was okay, thinking that there will be many more like this in the future.
“Don’t be sorry. I’m not mad at the young master.”
Rather, I deeply realized why Kiverin had no choice but to go crazy in the novel.
I remembered the part where Kibrin appeared in <The Villainess Only Want The Money Path>.
Even though the Duke family try to stop the rumors, but rumors spread quickly that Kiverin was a monster.
It wasn’t long before everyone found out that the Duke was afraid of Kiverin and locked him up in a snake’s den.
Aside from the fact that this mansion is not worthy of the nickname ‘Snake den’, it is luxurious.
However, as time passed, Kiverin appeared at his coming of age.
He didn’t stutter like before, and the letters on his back and scales on his face were gone.
But the Duke and his wife died that day.
Everyone thought Kiverin was the culprit, he do that to get revenge.
Kiverin became a Duke and began a purge.
Countless vassals and nobles who persuaded the Duke and Duchess to imprison Kiverin were killed.
In a way, it was natural for Kiverin, who stains the Empire with blood, to confront my sister’s temple.
I looked back at Kiverin, who was now in front of me.
His dull wrists and pale cheeks were trampled in the snow.
Cheria didn’t grow up in a good environment either, but looking at Kiverin I was really mad.
He’s only ten years old. Different from me.
The current Kiverin has nothing to apologize to me for.
I took a deep breath.
I suppressed the emotions from the voice as much as possible.
“Are you hungry?”
Kiverin shook his head.
But it seemed that a passing dog would know that Kiverin was not eating properly.
The groceries that Kiverin puts out of reach are likely to be stolen by the servants later.
I realized what was the most important thing to do.
Me and Kibrin have to eat a lot.
And I have to stop him from being evil…
“Well, there are some dried tea leaves in the pantry, let’s drink it together.”
“You don’t like it?”
“Oh, no, I like it!”
My feet back to the dining room were heavy, but I didn’t show it.
I lifted the leave and put water in the kettle. Kiverin was standing in the corner.
I sat down on the chair and tapped the seat next to me.
“Ar-are you all right?”
“From now on, you will have to sit next to me, young master.”
I’ll take good care of you! Let’s move towards the same dream!
Kiverin rubbed one of his face as habits. It was the side where the scales sprouted.
Cheria’s past, which comes to mind as if I had personally experienced it, also brings tears to my eyes, but Kiverin’s past is terrifying.
I pretending not to see it, I poured the tea.
Kiverin took a sip as I watched the bright yellow search with curious eyes.
“How about it?”
It was nothing like an ordinary child with a frown on his face.
It’s kind of like playing with a house.
“The next time someone comes, I’ll ask them to prepare some sweets.”
It seemed like the Duchess wouldn’t come again, unless something special happened.
Biting my trembling lips and avoiding Kiverin’s gaze, he still looked in my eyes.
Kibrin tilted his head.
“It a sweet and delicious thing. If you eat too much, your teeth will rot.”
Were you afraid of rotting your teeth? Kiverin closed his eyes tightly and called me.
My full name is Cheria Mayall, but it doesn’t matter.
Kiverin called about my name several times, as if he would not forget.
Also, the Duchess didn’t seem to tell him who I was.
