She hurriedly walked over and asked, but the child was still crouching down.
What was this? She thought for a while and then lifted the child’s body.
She couldn’t leave him as he is, could she?

She went into the house and wrapped the child’s body in a blanket.
But somehow it was a bit strange.
The child’s body did not even move even when she brought it here.
She hurriedly removed the arms wrapped around the child’s face.
Seeing that both eyes were tightly closed, he seemed to have lost consciousness.

“…Is it a shock because of what happened earlier?”

She looked around the child’s body.
Fortunately, he did not appear to be seriously injured except for a few bruises.

“What the hell is all this about?”

She sighed and laid the child carefully on the bed.
She tucked his sweaty curls behind his ear.
She didn’t know who the child’s family was but it’s quite a bi of… a bit… She could not resist and poked his cheek with her finger.

“…Oh, my.”

The child, with a small mumble, tossed and turned over his body.
Even his figure was cute and made her smile.

“Oh, this isn’t the time for this.” 

Lerna straightened up her bent body and prepared to leave.
She was thinking of checking the surroundings of the house in case of an emergency.
In the meantime, some water was drawn.
She opened the door and went outside.

* * *

After checking the surroundings carefully to see if there were any other suspicious people, she was on her way home after drawing water.


The house was on the hillside, so going up was not difficult.

“If it wasn’t for the debt, I wouldn’t have gone through this hardship…”

She honestly still couldn’t believe it.
The fact that she possessed a character in a romance fantasy novel called .
What was the point of possessing an extra person who was reputed to be a villainess from a ruined family?

“Anyway, there’s no luck or support.”

She set the water bottle down on the floor to take a break.
She wiped the sweat from her forehead with her hand.
Looking back, the scenery below the mountain came into view at a glance.
A small mountain village with no mate.
After being chased day and night by creditors, it was this village where she managed to escape and hide.
Because of its remoteness, few outsiders went there, so she decided to settle down.
It was fortunate that all the villagers were kind-hearted.
So, why not buy a house and live there?

Stretching lightly, she pulled her head all the way up.
The dense forest almost obscured the sky, making it difficult to tell the time.
Shall she go slowly now? She picked up the water bottle she had left on the floor and started walking again.
It was the moment she had just arrived home after diligently climbing the mountain.

“… Hello?”

A black mass crouching in a corner of the yard in front of the house came into sight.
She blinked, wondering if she had seen it wrong, but the black mass was still there.
She was sure she put him on the bed, but why was he there? Embarrassed, she put down the water bottle and hurriedly approached the child.

“Hey, baby?”

At her call, the child slowly raised his head.
Tears welled up in the child’s eyes.

“Why are you crying huh?”

She reached out and rubbed the child’s wet eyes.
The child just whimpered without answering.

“Don’t cry.
You cute thing.”

She picked up the baby and went inside the house.


“Huh? What?”


Did she hear wrong? It was the moment when she looked down at the child in bewilderment.


Cried the child who raised his head.


She was so embarrassed that she couldn’t even say anything.
Being a mother out of nowhere… after seeing him for the first time? She looked down at the child in bewilderment.
The child repeated his words, still with his tears flowing profusely.

“Mom, mom…”

The head of the child who had been mumbling without rest bent forward.
Surprised for a moment, she hurriedly lifted the child’s face to examine it and let out a sigh of relief.
Fortunately, he was just asleep.

“I was surprised.”

She carefully sat down on the bed with the child in her arms.
How the hell did he even go there? She could tell just by looking at him that he was a child of a precious family.

“Has this ever happened?”

She thought about this and that, but she couldn’t come up with a particularly appropriate scene.
Or was it because that child was an extra character with no importance like her? The body she possessed, a woman named ‘Elia Lawton’, was an extra who only appeared on a few pages.
She was the daughter of an insignificant viscount family, her temper was very savage, and she knew nothing but luxury.
The decisive reason for the collapse of the family was the great spending of the Viscount and his daughter, Elia Lawton.
If her mother, the Viscountess, had continued to live, she would not have gotten to this point at least.
The Viscountess, who was weak in her original body, died within a few days after she gave birth to Elia Lawton.
After that, what happened was obvious.
The viscount raised his daughter spoiled and hoarded money.
Then, when the family’s wealth was exhausted, the Viscount even took up gambling.
And when his gambling put him in huge debt, the Viscount left her alone and ran away on his own.

It was at that point when she had just woken up after the accident.
At first, she was confused because she couldn’t understand the situation.
She just wondered where that place was, and got up.
As she looked around, she saw a handsome middle-aged man and an attendant hurriedly running through the window.

It’s like being chased by someone and running away.
The room was a mess as if it had been robbed by a thief.
She looked everywhere else, but there was nothing like it.
After wandering around there for quite some time, she realized that the place she was in was no ordinary building.
It looked like a mansion one would see in the Middle Ages.
It was at that moment that she felt that something must have gone terribly wrong that a commotion came from far away.
Looking outside through the window in the hallway, she saw a group of people coming in just past the front door.
Wasn’t it because they all look fierce and come running with bloody eyes?

[Viscount Ed Lawton! You better get out right away.
Otherwise, I will sell your daughter, Elia Lawton, to a slave trader!]

The man who was walking in front of the crowd shouted, and she felt tingling as if she had been hit in the head.
She understood what she had to do and immediately left the mansion.
In the process, she luckily found a back door and barely escaped from them.
It was as if she had suddenly become broke and was being chased by a debt collector.
