＃When it returned, the family was ruined (133)
A sword that is wielded at random.
The guy was so angry that his eyes rolled over.
As he skillfully dodged the sword and delivered the occasional blow, two curses began to flow from Mileton’s mouth.
“What a dog…!”
“You bastard who will kill you by splashing you in shit!”
“Ah-oh! “Why isn’t it right?”
It was when the cheerful sound of hitting was heard around 20 times. Mileton’s eyes slowly began to turn red.
“It looks like you’re sick.”
“…It doesn’t hurt when you hit me so hard! “You damn bastard!”
“If it’s unfair, you hit me too.”
The guy, who had been breathing heavily for a while, slumped down on the floor and started whimpering.
“Are you crying?”
“Ugh… I’m not… I’m crying…”
Anyone could see that it looked like she was crying.
The guy who had been shaking for a while with his face buried in his knees gradually calmed down.
“If you’re all done crying, stop and stand up.”
“…I said I didn’t cry!”
“From now on, if you speak informally, it will be correct.”
Where are you going to quietly say something?
Mileton, who had been silent for a moment due to the chilling warning, shouted.
“…I didn’t cry!”
Even though it was a muffled voice, it didn’t sound like my soul had escaped like when I first encountered it.
I don’t know what kind of appearance my father came to see, but the guy from just now was consumed by the despair in his heart and almost fell into a mental demon.
It was one of those things that explodes when the despair and anger in your heart builds up without an outlet. As a knight who has traveled to countless battlefields, Ethan has witnessed many knights suffering from mental illness.
And he also knew the best solution to the phenomenon.
First, beat them to the point where you feel half dead.
Then, no matter how quiet a person is, he or she has no choice but to vent out the resentment built up in his or her heart.
In short, it is said that falcons are a special medicine. That was the reason I beat him to death.
Because there was a need to vent the accumulated emotions.
The dangerous phase has passed.
“Cool your head and go back to sleep.”
That was the moment Ethan turned around.
A voice came from behind.
“…I reported to my father about the crystal ball the Duke gave me today. But… my father was smiling even though he knew I almost died. … So, for the first time in my life, I lied to my father…”
“That video… It wasn’t the Duke who gave it to me, but I secretly filmed it… I’m sorry.”
“It doesn’t really matter.”
Duke Gerond probably doesn’t know that he has the video.
Rather, it was a good thing.
Mileton bowed his head as the Duke responded calmly as if nothing had happened.
“What about observation classes?”
“…You said you would attend next time.”
Of course it is.
It was the reaction I expected.
Right now, Gerond’s head is probably full of thoughts about how to cook Agileth.
Mileton looked at the duke.
The Lacian Dukes.
There was no one there who could spew out such information. I wanted to vent this frustration to someone.
The Duke of Ethan was a cold-hearted person who seemed as if not a single drop of blood would come out even if he was pricked with a needle.
‘…How would he have reacted?’
Did he just trudge along in helpless despair like himself?
Or would he have reacted differently?
I was curious.
Especially since he is his rival.
“…How do you think the Duke would have acted if it were me?”
“You wouldn’t have considered someone like that your father.”
“But… I already made a mistake.”
“…When I was born, my mother and one of my twin brothers died because of me… so my father must have been very disappointed in me…”
“Is that your fault?”
“On the contrary, don’t you think that you should live a happier life because you were born that way?”
“I don’t think your mother or brother, who left before you, would have wanted you to live a life of despair as you were left alone.”
Mileton’s face became blank.
No one had ever said anything like that to me. This was the case starting with Duke Gerond.
“My father just told me not to forget what I invested in…”
Ethan said with a chuckle.
“At least I know your father is a bastard. “I’ll tell you something the next time we meet.”
Even though he was openly cursing his father, strangely enough he wasn’t angry. On the contrary, it felt refreshing. The way he speaks so easily of hatred and resentment that he has never been able to express.
‘…i envy you.’
Suddenly, I became jealous of the duke.
The duke was a man who would do anything.
Even if Duke Gerond was in front of him, he would spit out what he had to say without hesitation even in front of him. Would he be able to live like that, confidently saying everything he wants to say?
I don’t know.
Still, one thing was certain.
This is the Duke’s own consolation.
“…Thank you for today.”
“done. Go in and go to bed early. “We will hold morning classes starting tomorrow.”
Mileton walked diligently behind the duke. At least the steps were much lighter than before.
Count Mühlen, headmaster of the academy.
Upon receiving the letter, his face immediately hardened.
[Kingdom Official Letter]
Heads of seven families are scheduled to visit the Kingdom Academy’s ‘Special Class’.
Reason: Parent class observation
Number of attendees: Duke, Duke, Marquis of Sage, Marquis of Turian, Marquis of Delike.
Date of attendance: 3 days later.
This was because there was news that as many as four of the heads of the seven families were visiting.
And that’s after three days at most.
Starting with the Duke and ending with the three Marquis.
All were magnates with power and reputation incomparable to their own.
It’s hard to believe that such people would visit the academy to observe classes at best. The kingdom directly sent an official letter and the heads of the seven families agreed to this.
At best, it wasn’t something he could forgive himself.
Although he was confident that everything from the facilities of the special class to the classes were the best, it was doubtful whether that would be acceptable in the eyes of the heads of the 7 families.
Although the Kingdom Academy was said to be the best facility among many academies, that was actually because it was called that based on ‘general’ standards. The kingdom’s citizens and middle and lower-level nobles just die.
In fact, the Kingdom Academy was a facility that did not need to be visited by children of the Seven Families.
Even before the special class was formed, didn’t the later masters continue their training in their own families?
The principal swallowed his saliva and called all the professors. In order to avoid possible reprimands, it was necessary to keep everything neatly organized from now on.
It was about to begin an unprecedented cleaning of the Academy, just like when the King visited a long time ago.
“Principal. “His Excellency the Duke is looking for you.”
Soon I was able to meet Duke Ethan. The Duke, who was staring at himself, asked.
“Is it because of the heads of families who will be visiting here soon that we have regular students clean?”
“Why are you exploiting innocent children? “You’re probably doing something pointless like preparing a grand banquet, right?”
Looking at him, it seemed like he was planning to do that.
It was not impossible to understand why people at the top of the power suddenly behaved that way when they visited.
“Just carry on as usual. Because the family heads won’t bother to find fault. No, if you catch it, I will stop it. Are you done?”
The principal rolled his eyes.
One thing was certain.
Since the duke said this, he must never give the impression that he is making a big deal out of nothing.
Since he had promised that he would block anyone who found fault with him, at least he wouldn’t have kept his mouth shut when such a situation arose.
No, I shouldn’t have done that.
“…yes. “I will.”
All scheduled cleaning schedules were cancelled.
However, there were some people who moved on with their plans. It was the principal who ‘voluntarily’ stepped forward.
“Didn’t I tell you to carry on as usual?”
“haha. I’ve been feeling really groggy these days… so I’m thinking about doing some cleaning. “Because it was something I wanted to do…”
I had no intention of stopping him from doing it on his own. For the remaining three days, the principal diligently cleaned all over the academy.
The principal, who had been waiting in front of the school gate under the pretext of cleaning in the morning, opened his eyes at the sight of four carriages in the distance. It was a procession of extremely fancy carriages.
If such a big person visited, it was normal for any professor to be waiting in front of the school gate.
Of course, Duke Ethan didn’t do that. The door of the carriage in the front row opened. It was the Duke who came out of the carriage.
“Nice to meet you, Duke! I…”
“Where is my daughter?”
“haha. Duke. Please go slowly. “It’s hard to keep up.”
“Dorothy, it’s been a month since I haven’t seen that child! I guess I’m in a hurry! “Please guide me there quickly!”
The principal began to guide the household heads without even being able to properly introduce himself. Soon, I was able to meet the late exponents who were training in the training hall. The four heads of the house widened their eyes when they saw them.
In particular, the person who was most surprised was the Duke.
The Duke moved to her side in an instant, his eyes shining.
“Yonseok! When on earth did you learn the flow technique? “The softness has absorbed into your body very well, hehe!”
“lol. “I was so close to dying that it just popped out.”
“What! Almost died? “What happened?”
“Um… while receiving training?”
Duke’s face slowly began to turn red. Soon he looked at Ethan and started walking away.
Starting from the principal to the three heads of the family. Everyone’s eyes focused on Duke.
‘Revenge for being treated harshly…?’
‘As he cares for his daughter so much, maybe…’.
In the worst case scenario, the two dukes could clash. That was when the people in the training hall swallowed their saliva.
Duke stood in front of Ethan.
“Peacock! “Thank you!”
Duke held Ethan’s hand tightly with a hand the size of a pot lid and waved his hand violently.
“…I made a fatal mistake by pampering my daughter too much. “The duke probably knows.”
When she first came here, Dorothy was one of the weakest late-stage exponents. It was not because of lack of skill and talent.
What she lacked was….
This was it.
A fake who has experienced countless typical ‘sloppy’ sparring matches.
It wasn’t difficult to guess why. It was obvious that the ‘fool’ in front of me would have been protecting my child for the rest of his life.
Otherwise, there was no way it could have grown into a flower in a greenhouse like that.
“It was for that reason that his level stopped at a certain level. If it hadn’t been for the Duke, Dorothy would never have learned the art of gentleness! Thank you so much! “After all, he is our son-in-law!”
“huh? “Professor Dad is my husband?”
“haha! okay. It’s your husband. “How are you feeling?”
“I like the professor!”
Everyone’s eyes widened at the sudden self-talk. However, the reaction was not as intense as Lee Sera’s.
The Turian Marquis broke into a cold sweat as his daughter’s eyes turned pitch black.
