IBRV (Novel) Chapter 87

C 87



At most, it was a family I acquired in this distant world, but I didn't want to lose anyone.

Above all, seeing Chronos Etham reminded me of my past. The same way I blamed myself for everything.

"That's right."

"Nonsense."

Chronos Etham pushed me away and stood up.

"...Won't you move?"

"No."

I was clinging to his neck better than I thought.

And Chronos Etham had more strength than I thought. When I didn't let go, he finally raised his arm and supported my rear.

"I'm sorry, High Priest."

"No, it's fine. You have a very cute niece. She must be happy."

"...It's not like that."

"Is that so? Don't forget that sin is always by your side. You're living today by trampling on others."

The High Priest chuckled meanly and said.

"...I know."

"Today's penance wasn't completed correctly, so let's do it again in a few days."

"Yes."

The High Priest turned his gaze towards me and smiled.

"Isn't the cardinal's niece willing to come to the temple regularly? You can't change your birth, but you can cleanse a dirty body and mind."

At that rude comment, Adam took a step forward. The High Priest looked at me with a calm smile.

"No, I'm not."

"Then, it would be better for you to stay away from the cardinal, for it will be difficult if he becomes corrupt."

"No, I don't want to."

...

When I responded like a child, the High Priest's eyes seemed slightly irritated.

"The Etham family should elevate their level of education."

No, they shouldn't."

"If you don't even know the basics of etiquette..."

"Isn't that the case for you too? I'm not being polite because you're not being polite."

I replied lightly.

The title of Duke would be similar to or higher than that of the High Priest, but he was clearly ignoring me.

Of course, since he doesn't know that I'm the matriarch of the family, there might be such things.

"An infamous and dirty being is trying to bewitch us. Come to your senses, Cardinal Chronos."

"...Yes."

He was trying to somehow pull me away. But every time, I clung like a cicada to an old tree.

"...Move."

"No, I don't want to."

"Get away...!"

Chronos Etham grabbed me and groaned. Still, it seemed like he couldn't get rid of what I clung to desperately.

"Uncle, don't hurt yourself."

...

"The moment you blame yourself for something that isn't your fault, the world becomes miserable. Even breathing becomes a sin... It's not really, but it really seems like it."

That's how it was for me.
