I Don't Want To Be Duke’s Adopted Daughter-in-law - Chapter 15
“You are adopting that child as your daughter-in-law! What kind of child do you know that she is?”
The director’s attitude was very desperate.
It was like a thorn that he wanted to send anywhere, but the story is different when it comes to Duke Shuetz.
That clever girl would expose everything I had done.
That only had to be stopped.
“You know the story of a famous thief who tried to steal Count Lati O’Nell’s belongings.”
The director’s glaring glance touched Ellie.
“The thief is the mother of that girl. The veins aren’t going anywhere, and I was caught stealing my stuff that year!”
Ante opened his eyes as if surprised at the words of the director.
He knew Ante about the story of the thief who shook the empire.
When the empire was disturbed by the war, it was said that a thief broke through strict guards and sneaked into the imperial palace and stole the emperor’s treasure.
The emperor massively released people to find the thief, but he couldn’t catch it in the end.
‘Since then, they were all caught trying to steal Count Lati O’Nell’s stuff,’
and she was told that she had died hanging from the bag.
‘I haven’t heard that she has a daughter.’
That would be that child.
Ante’s gaze reached Ellie. Ellie sat quietly without a sign of denial.
Because she was all true without a single falsehood.
The director realized that her momentum leaned on hid side. Now was his chance. The ledger drove Ellie like a judge.
“So, Duke, please take your word. To take that bitch as a daughter-in-law would hurt the Duke’s honor-”
the Duke muttered in a low-pitched tone.
“How long am I supposed to be listening to this dog bullshit?”
” Dog, bullshit? Don’t you believe me?”
“I know better that you are a person worse than a dog.”
The director snapped his mouth at the chilling work of the Duke.
Either that or not, his gaze was on Ellie.
So this was a gamble for him.
Everyone would be happy to say it was an impulsive decision, but Erhard didn’t change it.
As he approached Ellie, he sat down on one knee and looked at her.
“The choice is up to you.”
“Will you go with me?”
Ellie’s green eyes shook roughly. She took turns looking at Damian and the valiant director, slowly removing her lips.
“One thing, there is a condition.”
The words that followed surprised everyone.
For orphans, this is an overwhelming offer. Accepting it is also a condition for selling hats .
However, the Duke only asked in a dry tone.
“What is it.”
“Please fire the teachers here. All of them.”
“You, you…..! What are you talking about!”
Even though her body seemed to shrink, Ellie spoke without changing her expression.
“Even if I and Damian go for adoption, these children will still suffer.”
“So, ask the teachers for their offenses, and let them sell them, and make this a good orphanage. So that children won’t be sold as products anymore.”
Ellie did not avoid, and looked into his eyes.
“Let’s do that.”
Before long, the Duke said yes to his mouth.
“Right now to proceed with the disqualification of the teachers here, Ante.”
Ante turned to the teachers.
“No way, Duke! Believing that cunning girl’s words, Duke-!”
Before long, the director’s curse for Ellie resounded over the door, but it became quiet.
It was in an instant.
In one word of the Duke, all the circumstances were arranged.
‘Although I asked for it.’
Ellie stared at the empty room with a quaint face.
“It will be what you want in the future. So, don’t ask again.”
“Will you go with me?”
The Duke glanced at Ellie and said.
‘What is the purpose of taking me?’
I didn’t know, but I wasn’t scared.
‘Only until Damian met the real heroine.’
Until then, let’s keep his side. Ellie nodded and held the hand of the Duke.
? ? ? ? ?
Caraige with the patterns of aristocrats lined up in front of the orphanage.
This is because her director who pretended to be her master and her nursery teachers who followed her disappeared.
In the meantime, people hired by the Shuets family decided to take care of the orphanage.
“There will be a new director selected by the peasant. We are planning to recruit nursery teachers to ensure that they do not fall short.”
In other words, it also meant that children no longer had to do harsh labor.
Unlike the huge change, it was a short greeting, but the eyes across the orphanage were twinkling.
It was a strange child. As I doubted, if this kid was the emperor’s nod, it would have been the daughter who received my suggestion without looking back. She put conditions on me without fear.
Even the child was truly happy with the changed appearance of the orphanage.
‘I’m not saying,’
because it was me who accepted the empty condition.
Is it because the appearance of her looked like her.
“The problem you are worrying about, I can solve it.”
The voice that he thought had faded and forgotten revolved around Erhard’s head again.
“Instead, there is one condition. Marry me,”
Erhard used to take out a cigarette.
He was so strong that he would not even touch it for an ordinary person, but without this he might go crazy.
“Sister, where are you going?”
Then, a little girl with a rabbit doll approached Ellie’s side.
“Yes, I go very far.”
“Then we can’t see you again?”
cried the child.
“Why can’t you see me again.”
“But the other sisters didn’t come back.”
At a moment, Ellie paused and shook her head again.
“No, I’ll be back.”
At that time, you might be out here because you’ve already grown up.
Ellie concealed her back and reached out the finger of her cub.
She hung her little finger together with a face that would make her cry sooner or later.
“Sister, you promised. Do you have to come again?”
“Sister, don’t forget me.”
Starting with that promise, children began to gather around Ellie.
Erhard, with a slight frown, retreated from the children.
No matter how much Ante called me a ‘personal breaker’ , he wasn’t a mentally mindless person enough to smoke a strong cigarette in front of the children.
At that moment, I felt a hot gaze. I turned my head.
My eyes met Damian, who was staring at me with the look of the border.
“If you stare like that, you can’t kill people. If you’re holding a sword, you won’t know.”
Damian fluttered his body in a poignant tone.
Damian, biting his lips tightly as if in resentment, muttered in a low voice.
“I can’t understand. Why are you taking Ellie and me? What are you going to do?”
“If you go back to the estate, you’ll have to learn talking skills.”
At Damian’s unrequited attitude, Erhard picked up the cigarette he had taken out.
“Did I not tell you. It’s not taking it, it’s just going back to where you was.”
“You will soon find out. What was the original thing you should have?”
So saying, I looked at Damian indifferently.
“Your appearance right now is nothing but a wild beast.”
“But if you go back to the original position, at least those eyes will look different. Then at least you will be able to protect those you want to protect.”
Damian bites his lips as if he was angry.
But I couldn’t refute it. Everything he said was true.
Everything he said was true. When Damian collapsed due to mana absorption, Ellie might have been in danger if this man was of a similar type to my master.
In other words, I couldn’t protect Ellie because I was weak.
After all, I didn’t want to follow.
To him, an adult man was terrifying and terrifying, but…… .
“You have to go, Damian. You’re supposed to be,”
But Ellie told me: I have to go back.
“Then…… what about Ellie?”
“Aren’t I with Ellie?”
At Damian’s question, Ellie had said this with a face that looked a little sad.
“Of course, I should go with you. I promised you. I will stay with you.”
The last words moved Damian’s heart.
So Damian placed conditions on Erhard.
“……Eh, don’t do anything like work to Ellie. Never.”
Tell Ellie not to do anything that hurts her.
he frowned as if what he was talking about.
“What’s happening with such a small child? You don’t have to worry about that useless thing.”
Even with Erhard’s answer, Damian seemed to be alert.
“……. If you bother Ellie, I won’t leave you alone.”
Damian looked at hi. with a fierce glance and turned around.
Huh. Erhard laughed in vain.
‘It’s the same as his father.’
The attitude changes as if when he did it even though he was waving his tail in front of his wife.
‘He didn’t even need a mana stone.’
Like that, he express himself as a child of the climber with his whole body.
Erhard kicked foot and tongue.
