Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
Arundilano had five nannies. However, there were not five nannies at the same time.
The first nanny was hired, but her milk supply was so poor that it was judged difficult to feed two and her own child, and she was fired with a Retirement Payment.
The second nanny had given birth to a child, but it was a stillborn and she had no child to raise, but she was supposed to be able to produce milk. However, it was later discovered that she had abandoned the child in front of the orphanage and called it a stillbirth because the child was born with an appearance that made it obvious that it was a child born of infidelity, and she was fired.
The third nanny was also a woman who had lost her child to stillbirth. This time, the royal court made sure that the baby was stillborn before hiring her, but the woman, who had not recovered from the shock of losing her child, doted on Arundilano, monopolized him, and would not even let Her Royal Highness hold him, so she was fired.
The requirements for a nanny were that she must have given birth to a child and be able to breastfeed, that she must have completed her puerperium, and that she must be a noblewoman, and only those who had given birth before Her Royal Highness were eligible for the initial recruitment.
However, because of the time that had passed due to the change of nannies, the recruitment of the fourth nanny and beyond also included those who had prepared the child after learning of the Queen’s pregnancy.
These people were ambitious people who wanted their children to be related to the royal family by having them as their peers.
They were dismissed for trying to imprint their love on the still infant Arundilano as if it were a curse, and for abusing him in secret to make him obey them.
One year has passed even though the breastfeeding relay was going on. Since weaning started, they decided that nanny was unnecessary, but someone who had experience in raising children was favorable. With that in mind, Fabian Velfadia, the Vice Commander of Knight’s mother, was assigned the role to babysit.
Fabian’s mother sometimes brought her grandchildren, Gerant and Chris.
Since Gerant was two years older than Arundilano and Chris was the same age, she wanted them to be playmates for Arundilano, who had no brothers or sisters.
Chris was the one who would later become the target of the Paladin route.
Gerant was at an age when he wanted to be a big brother, and he took good care of Arundilano and Chris, but when something happened, he gave priority to Arundilano. Because of this, Chris often fought Arundilano to keep his big brother.
“I want a big brother, too.”
I, Arundilano was happy to be loved by Gerant, but Gerant went home in the evening, and he didn’t come every day.
I once spilled out to my parents that I wanted a big brother because I felt so lonely, but they told me that if I ever had a little brother or sister, I should be a big brother like Gerant.
I wanted to tell them that was not what I meant, but I didn’t know what to say, so I had to keep quiet.
Eventually, Gerant began to study with a tutor and his father began to teach him sword fighting, so his grandmother brought him to the royal palace less and less.
He and Chris played together more and more, but Chris talked about Gerant at every turn.
“He shared some sweets that his brother had gotten from a knight.”
“My brother learned to write, so he read to me.”
“I was afraid of thunder, but he slept with me.”
“My brother…” “My brother…” “My brother…”
Eventually, when Arundilano turned four, I began to study with a private tutor, so I no longer had a babysitter.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
A maid and a knight escort followed him around, but they didn’t chat or play with him.
“You’ll have lots of friends.”
That’s what my mother, Her Royal Highness the Queen, told me and took me to a gathering of noblewomen to embroider.
There were many children of the same age, and many toys such as building blocks and picture books.
There was one boy who was older than the others, but he was embroidering with the women and did not seem to be part of the children’s games.
At that moment, Arundilano forcefully pulled the hand of the girl who did not listen to him, pushed her away and made her fall.
Then, as fast as the wind, the boy from earlier appeared in front of the girl and worried about her injuries.
For some reason, Arundilano was even angrier than he had been when the girl had not listened to him. It was frustrating that he was not a priority.
The boy turned around and his face was very scary. The young Arundilano had never seen such anger before.
I tried to be strong, but he grabbed my head and my body was shaking with fear.
I even tried to escape from reality, thinking that his eyes were beautiful as they changed from blue to purple.
That day’s embroidery party was soon dismissed, and I didn’t get to play with the other kids much.
Later, I heard that the boy was the girl’s brother.
“He got angry because I made his sister fall down.”
Arundilano began to envy the girl. The girl has an older brother who flies at her when she falls. She has a big brother who gets so mad at her for a scratch on her palm.
“I want a big brother too…”
For the first time in a long time, a wish came out of my mouth.
Arundilano understood that there was nothing his older siblings could do after him. Arundilano knew that his wish to have an older brother would never come true.
“There is only one way you can make that boy your brother.”
It was the maid behind him who whispered to Arundilano.
Arundilano turned around in surprise when the maid, who usually only asked for instructions or responded to instructions, spoke to him.
“It’s to marry Dianna. Dianna’s brother, Cain, will also be the brother of her husband, which then, will be you your highness.”
That girl was cute but she was kind of sassy so I really didn’t like her, but if we get married, that boy will be my brother.
I thought that was kind of attractive.
I imagined a boy who would run up to me when I fell down.
I imagined a boy who would get angry at the person who hurt him when he got hurt.
Imagine the boy’s face as his eyes change color in anger.
“I wonder if you’ll ever be my big brother.”
My mother told me that there would be a reconciliation meeting, and I was thrilled. She had taught me how to apologize and how to accept apologies, but I hadn’t listened because I was thinking about the boy.
I was taught that the boy doted on his sister. Arundilano thought that if he didn’t get along with his sister as well, he wouldn’t like him, so he decided to apologize properly to the girl and try to make up with her.
Once we’ve made up, I’ll ask him if I can call him brother.
I wondered if he would hold my hand like they did when Gerant and Chris were leaving.
Will he praise me when I do something good?
Will he gently rebuke me when I do something wrong?
Would he pat me on the head when I get praised?
Arundirano’s longing for his “big brother” only grew.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
