ntrance to all territories was bound to be strictly monitored and controlled after sunset. 

The large main gate of the outer wall as well as several small gates on the side were all closed. 


One of the dozens of soldiers lined up on the wall shouted at the carriage. 

All the soldiers had strong shields and sharp swords in their hands. 

The Little Bear spoke loudly, using Light Magic to illuminate his face well. 

“It’s Juliano Leocardia.”

“Young Master!”

“You’re back!”

The soldiers who had been sharply on guard until now welcomed the Little Bear with bright smiles. 

‘Little Bear is so popular.
Although they were so mean, they suddenly became so nice.’

I smiled and looked at the Little Bear. 

The soldiers then said.

“Young Master, that child…?”

“A baby with a bear hat!”

I shouted at once. 

“I’m not a baby! I’m a full-grown child!”

Half of the soldiers burst into laughter and the other half struggled to hold back their laughter.

“Why are you laughing!”

I huffed and argued. 

The Little Bear patted my head as if asking me to hold it in, but he was also holding back his laughter. 

“Come on in, Young Master!”

The small gate on the right opened. 

The Little Bear drove the carriage towards it and waved at the soldiers again. 

I thought I should follow along, so I waved as well.

“Get home safely, Young Master!”

“Kid, have a good night!”

“Bye bye kid~!”

The soldiers greeted and laughed loudly. 

‘Why are they laughing?’

I grumbled inward and lowered my hand. 

“It’ll take a long time with the carriage, so let’s fly from here.”

After coming out through the thick outer wall, the Little Bear went to a nearby stable and handed over the carriage to the staff. 

“Send it back to Duke’s Estate tomorrow morning.”


The Little Bear hugged me and flew up with Flight Magic. 

The fief land from a high place was much more impressive than when it was seen at a distance. 

‘It’s usually dark at night, but somehow it’s not dark at all.’

It was thanks to the street lamps imbued with Light Magic.
It was so expensive that there were only a few in the Spania Territory where I lived. 

All the roads in sight were spacious, neat, and clean.
It was also clear that all the buildings were built of solid materials like stone, not wood.
What was more impressive was the fact there were many more floors above the second floor. 

“Wow! It looks so great!”

The Little Bear pointed to one side with a proud face. 

“That’s the Duke’s Castle.”

Like the fortress of the third guard post, a cylindrical black building appeared. 

‘It’s so biiiiig!!!’

There were clearly well over 10 floors and the thickness of its walls was enormous.
However, unlike the fortress, there was nothing sharp on the walls and there were many large windows. 

It didn’t feel inferior to an iron wall.
It was a huge fortress that could never be pierced.
It was a huge and terrifying shield. 

The Duke’s Castle stood on the front line like a shield defending the territory behind him. 

There were the Chaos Mountains ahead. 

‘I can’t see a thing.’

In front of the Duke’s Castle, it was only a black world. 

A terrifying silence filled with darkness. 

It must be because there were so many incredibly strong monsters. 

‘It’s good to train.’

It was exactly as I thought.

As the warrior who had killed the Demon Lord, there were monsters who I found difficult to deal with, but there were no monsters who were scary. 

There was only one thing I was afraid of. 

And it was a human being, not a monster. 

The Cardinal. 

When I thought of him, my back once again burned up in pain. 

‘…Let’s stop thinking about it.’

Suddenly, the Little Bear stopped in the air. 

“What’s wrong?”

“My sister’s magic feels stronger than usual.
This is a sign that I need to come to her room.

“Why are you groaning?”

“I feel like Dia will be taken away.”

“First of all, let’s go.”

The Little Bear continued to move forward.

We entered the sixth floor of the Castle through the window. 

Perhaps because the castle was safe, there were no soldiers in the hallway, only a wandering maid. 

On the outside, she was an extremely ordinary-looking woman in her 20s but internally, she harbored a sharp and strong power. 

‘That’s unique.’

The woman smiled brightly and walked up to us. 

“Welcome back, Young Master!”

“Hello, Lavigne.”

“I’m glad you’re back in good health.
What about the Count?”

“My father will come back together with my mother soon.
Do you mind preparing a meal in advance? I’d like a dish of honey pork, please.”

“Yes, but this baby..?”

“Hello! I’m Dia!”

“Yes, hello.”

Lady Lavigne and I greeted each other with a clear smile. 

“I’m a commoner so please don’t use formal language with me.”

“No formal words?”

“No, Hi- Hi- No.
Phew, it’s hard.”

Lavigne burst into laughter. 

I frowned and the Little Bear coughed. 

“Lavigne, Dia will be upset.”

“I’m sorry.
No, I’m sorry Dia.
You’re so smart!”

Lavigne’s eyes glistened as she looked at me. 

“How old are you?”

Little Bear answered for me. 

“She’s five.”

“Wow! A five-year-old is so eloquent and smart! That’s amazing!”

“Dia is a genius!”

‘I’m not five though.
I’m seven years old.’

Even if I was teased after they knew the truth, I thought that I should tell them the truth now. 

As I was about to open my mouth, the Little Bear patted my head and said to Lavigne. 

“She’s going to be staying in the castle starting today.
Lavigne, please take care of her.
Prepare the guest room.
I’ll go take her to say hello to my sister first since she’s calling.
Lavigne, make sure to help her get ready for bed and take a bath.”

I’ll see you in a little while.”

As Lavigne waved to greet me, I also waved reflexively. 

The Little Bear held me in his arms and walked down the hallway, before knocking in front of a room at the end. 

I expected a voice to say ‘Come in,’ but the door popped open instead.
