-

He had a black hair and gentle eyes.

His hands were full of calluses and wounds.

The Duke of Amity was still the same like her memory.

‘Why is this person here…….

I knew that we would run to each other one day.

But I didnt know it would be like this.

I couldnt move, I just stared blankly, as he bent one knee and looked at me.

“Are you okay”

“…….”

“Let me see.”

A big hand came up to my cheek as I closed my eyes tightly.

“Dont touch my daughter.”

There was a familiar voice behind my back.

When I saw him, I ran up to him and hugged him.

“Theodore.”

“I didnt say you could call my name, Lord Amity.”

Both of them glared at each other.

 

“You still have no manners.”

“You still remember the useless things.”

Both of them never get along well since birth.

The Amity family was the most honorable among the founding families.He was called the shield of the emperor for generations and a hero who defended the empire.

On the other hand, Dubbleds family use money to get their title.

In the early days of the Empire, when the country was in a difficult situation, their ancestors, who were in business, donated money to the imperial family and received a title.

Even now, some nobles still looked down on us.

For that reason, the two were very incompatible.

Their personalities were also the exact opposite.

If the Duke of Amity was the embodiment of justice, my father was the embodiment of selfishness.

In the end, both of them are destined to be enemies.

‘And they think so too.

“Why are you here Theres no way youll be attending a charity event today.”

“Am I obligated to report my schedule to you”

“You still have a knack for irritating me.”

“Seems like you still have the knack of offending people.”

They kept glaring at each other fiercely as I was stuck in the middle.

I got out of my dads arms, grabbed his trousers and said,

“Lets go.

Okay”

 

“…….”

Dad frowned for a moment, but walked without further interaction with the Duke of Amity.

‘Thank god there would be no fight here.

I grabbed my dads hand and asked him as I walked.

“What brings you here”

My father, who glanced around, lowered his voice and said,

“That guy… the Duke of Amity came to the capital because there was a charity event in the shopping district.”

Duke Amity never really attended noble meetings, but always participates in events for the commoners.

‘He was afraid that I would run into him.

“I was a little surprised, but its okay.”

“Did you not meet him often in your second and third life”

“Yes.

Only in my first life, because of me…Oh, its also because I had to get an education by the church.”

Unlike my father, Duke of Amity has strong support behind his back even though he doesnt go to the capital often.

The first reason is that the emperor trusted him like a brother.

The emperor was anxious about not being able to bring him to the capital, so he was eager to entrust him with a heavy task as soon as he to the capital.

The second reason is public sentiment.

He was a testifier of the proverb, “The power of the nobility comes from the people.”

When something happened to the Duke of Amity, the public sentiment fluctuated, and the nobles were unable to touch him.

Rather, there were countless nobles who wanted to use the Duke of Amity for public sentiment.

‘The Duke of Amity is a hero of the people…….

Just then.

“Little miss!”

A middle-aged woman ran towards her.

It was Ferma, the only maid of Duke Amity.

She bowed her head to my dad and handed me some medicine bottles.

“The Duke of Amity said that he was sorry for being careless and bumped into you.”

Vincent Amity was a man like this.

He was more generous to children and the weak.

He was a man with good principles.

It was his pride, and I admired him for that.

He was my first father who I wanted to hate but couldnt.

Because he used to love me with all his heart.

I reached out to get the medicine bottle from Ferma.

“Tell him thank-”

“Tell him Ill take care of my daughter.

No need to do such useless things.”

When my dad pulled me away, Lea ran quickly and took out an ointment.

Ferma said with an awkward look.

“Duke Amity has given her a secret ointment that has been handed down from generation to generation.

Please do my lord a favor-”

“Theres a lot of medicine in Dubbled too.”

Ferma frowned at Leas reply.

The two were glaring at each other, so I quickly stepped in.

“I can use both of them!”

Fermas face brightened when I said that.

“Ill put on the ointment from Dubbled today.”

Lea smiled brightly.

I put the two ointment into my pocket and pulled Leas sleeve.

“Lets go!”

Lea who was glaring at Ferma for a long time replied, “Yes.” and stepped back.

‘I should try not to make the people of Dubbled meet the people of Amity.

If something happened, we could have a war.

I decided and sighed inside.

***

My dad took me near the hope mercenary guild and shooed Leah and the Dubbled people away so that I could deal with the people of hope mercenary guild easier.

‘I feel really grateful to him.

I grinned my way into the office at the hope mercenary guild through a secret passage.

“You arrived”

“Seria, there you are!”

“We havent met for a long time.

How have you been”

“I had a lot to tell…huh”

I widened my eyes when I saw people standing awkwardly behind Seria.

“By any chance…”

“Yes, they are my brothers.

Theyre exceptionally smart kids, so theyve been helping me with some jobs.

Say hello, Hans, Duke, Seto.”

Hans, Duke, Seto

…One, two, three*

*TL note: Their names are like one, two and three in korean which is hana, dul, set.

I looked at her in disbelief as Seria smiled brightly.

Seria changed their name when they entered the hope mercenary guild, but Serias sense of naming must be really bad…

“But Seria, why did you bring them here”

Seria smiled bitterly.

“I dont have many brothers left, and I need a lot of money to raise them.

Id be happy if you could keep them working here.”

‘Great!

Actually, I was wondering what I would do if she wanted to leave.

I nodded and reached out my hand.

“I look forward to it.”

“W, w, we……!”

The three of them were at a loss.

Hans, the oldest out of them said,

“You dont have to be so nervous.”

“B, but youre a lady and a noble.

Yo, you also saved us and…!”

Me and Seria grinned at the trembling Hans.

“Seria, bring me snacks for the kids.”

“Yes.

Hold on a second.

Get along well okay kids”

After Seria went out, I spoke to Hans.

“Have you heard about my situation I have faith because you guys are the children Seria brought, but you should not tell anyone who I am.”

“I, I swear not to!”

Hans raised his collar.

There was a proof of oath that only those who signed the life contract had.

I hardened at once.

“Did the Chairman make you do that”

“Oh, no.

We said wed do it.”

“You dont know anything, its…….”

“I know.

If I tell anyone who you are, Ill die.”

“But why did you do it Seria did something dangerous to save you!”

Hans squeezed his trousers as I spoke sternly.

“Because Im grateful.

Little miss also saved my younger siblings.

Thats why I have to return the favor.”

“You guys are…”

When I sigh

Crash-!!

I turned my head to the place where I heard a sharp sound, I saw Duke and Seto, who were pale.

Hans leapt to his feet.

“You guys, I told you not to get in trouble!”

“I didnt hit…….

I just saw it, but it moved…….”

Seto, the youngest of the three, cried.

Hans and Duke scrambled to pick up the glass with their bare hands.

“Stop, stop!”

I shouted quickly and got the kids up.

“Dont do it because youll get hurt.

Just call someone……Huh”

This is the infamous stone that could recognize the suwon.

‘Many people have tried to use it but no one could succeed, in the end its just a stone…….

It was pretty, but it was useless.

However, the people mined it and sold it as a souvenir to the commoner.

“Did this move”

Seto nodded when I asked, and Duke, who was with him, quickly defended him.

“Really.

Ive also seen it!”

At that moment, I remembered a legend about suwon.

[A spirit who loves pure spirits gave protection to young warrior, who despised evil in the spring and visited suwon.]

Young warrior.

……only the young can receive it!

‘Thats why it reacted to the kids! Wait, then why didnt it respond to me

Im 9 years old, too.

Thinking so, I recalled the phrase “good spirits who love pure souls” and stared at the stone with an annoyed look.

“Is it saying that Im not pure Ugh…….”

But then,  I wouldnt be young in terms of the age of the soul.

Just then,

“Little miss!”

Seria and the chairman got into the room.

“Whats going on”

“A sign has emerged on the farmland of enus.

A sign of a great drought!”

“Already No way…….”

There are still a few months left before the drought begins.

When I frowned, the Chairman said.

“Its probably because of Marquis Nodelli.

We dont know what will come out of Marquis mouth about Marche, so we should keep him.

He knows whats causing the disaster, and no matter what Marche cant release Nodelli.”

“Yes, Nodelli didnt have the diamond mine any longer and was desperate for money, so his eyes will be on the suwon business.

He cant let go of Marches hand……”

“What do we do If Nodelli doesnt let go of Marches hand, our plan to extract Marches information from him……!”

I snorted and lifted myself up.

“Its okay, we have a blessing.

To be exact…….”

“What”

I said, stroking Setos plump cheeks.

“We have this beautiful child.”

“……”

Seria and the chairman looked at each other with bewildered looks as I patted Seto on the back.

“Oguogu, my baby.

Do you want to find suwon with this sister~”

The red-faced Seto wrapped his hands around both cheeks and nodded blankly.

“Yes…sister…….”

He had a black hair and gentle eyes.

His hands were full of calluses and wounds.

The Duke of Amity was still the same like her memory.

‘Why is this person here…….
