The dry winter wind blew fiercely.
It was only my mother and me in the dining room today.
“Just eat it.
This is the best thing I can do for today.”
“If you know, hurry up and eat it.”
Contrary to her harsh way of speaking, today’s table was full.
Even though it’s winter, as if some fresh vegetables and soft white bread were not enough, there were some high-quality meats.
All of those were hard to get in here.
Winter 3 years ago.
Compared to eating only boiled beans for a few days when I first came to the North, this was more like a feast.
Even now, when the situation worsens, there are times when people only eat bread or fill their stomachs with boiled beef soup.
Of course, eating like this was unimaginable before.
It’s not strange if my mother says that this dinner cost us the same price as buying a small house.
“The new chef’s skills are quite good.”
“It seems so.”
“He has three children.
I guess that’s why his skills are good.”
According to Sir Shubart, my mother’s only helper and acquaintance who sometimes comes to say hello, our situation will soon improve.
However, I believe that it will still be difficult for us in the future, given that several years have passed and we are still trapped in the North.
When my mother told me to eat quickly, I lowered my gaze, dipped the meat cut with a fork, and put it in my mouth.
After my mother saw me like that, she began to cut the meat to the size of her little fingernails.
I took a bite and looked at my mother again.
‘Why does such a beautiful woman commit evil deeds?’
“Don’t look at it uselessly.
Just eat it.”
At my mother’s words, I lowered my head again, cut the meat, and put it in my mouth.
The reason I worry about something is because this quiet family has a huge problem.
So, what is the problem?
This place is in the romance fantasy novel called 「My Soft Fiancee」, and my mother is not the protagonist, but the villainess, Lucellai Rudbihi.
What was troubling more was that I possessed her adopted daughter, Carbella.
To be precise, should I say that I was reborn as a character in a novel…?
In any case, it didn’t change that Lucellai Rudbihi was destined to face a ruthless death as a villainess.
It was the same for her daughter, me.
That reason alone was enough to show how desperate I am.
It is already in the middle part of the novel when Lucellai Rudbihi perpetrated all kinds of evil deeds and eventually was driven out of her family and came to the North, which is full of extreme poverty and ruins.
It is also the time for her to brainwash her adopted daughter for her revenge.
And that daughter is none other than me.
But I never want to live by doing such a dangerous thing.
I don’t even want to die! I just want to live with happiness for a long time.
‘My mother would never allow that!’
Lucellai Rudbihi is a person who doesn’t hesitate to poison and destroy other noble families just because she doesn’t like or hate them.
There was even a description of her victim wanting to take their own life because they couldn’t stand the harassment and pressure.
Of course, most of her evil deeds were left without evidence that she had done them.
It was her family who got rid of the evidence, but they couldn’t get rid of it anymore.
That’s why she was expelled here.
What’s funnier is the fact that more than half of what Lucellai did was ordered by her family.
Knowing that fact well, I’m only looking for an opportunity to escape by keeping a low profile in order not to be disposed of by her.
Fortunately, I’m still living a comfortable life in my own way, but…
In fact, it was only last winter that I found out this place was in a novel.
I never dreamed that I would remember it by being hit on the head by an unknown object falling from a tree.
Had I known in advance, I could have prevented my mother’s evil deeds a little more.
“Soon, it will be your coming of age.”
“Your power will be manifested soon.”
I put down my fork and smiled awkwardly.
It suddenly made me lose my appetite.
“I’m not sure.
It’s because I’m only half.”
“It will definitely manifest itself.”
I felt bitterness again at her confident words.
My mother still wants to use me as a tool.
I met my mother at the orphanage.
I was a child abandoned by an unknown gypsy there, to be exact, a gypsy who had Perenya blood that came with a special power.
The Perenya clan had the power to imprint the people on themselves.
It can be said they can imprint on people even though those people don’t want it.
So, with that power, I can make my imprinted people enjoy heaven or bring them down to hell.
It was special power to someone, but it was like a curse for me.
Not only are you capable of making perfect love that is truly full of fake, but you also have the power to destroy an innocent person.
What is it if it’s not a curse?
Anyway, from where Lucellai heard the rumor, she purposely came to the orphanage, which was almost bankrupt, in order to get her hands on me.
She will use me to give the Emperor and the Empress, the protagonists of the novel, indelible despair.
The reason was obvious.
It was because she couldn’t capture the Emperor’s heart, and she didn’t rise to the highest position.
She wanted to destroy them not because she loved the Emperor but because of her ambition.
That’s why she used me to leash the protagonist’s son, Valery Ahibara Kasinev, and destroy him thoroughly.
Lucellai Rudbihi’s motto is that she should get what she wants unconditionally.
If she can’t have it, she should destroy it thoroughly.
