here, it’s red.
Mom, are you hurt?”

“No.
Mom’s not hurt at all.
It doesn’t matter.
You were scared, weren’t you, my son?”

“Uh-huh, Mama!”

The child’s small hand stroked his mother’s swollen red cheeks before wrapping them around her neck, hugging her.1

A spark flashed into Kalia’s eyes as she watched the scene.

‘Do you think I’ll just kill him here? I’ll take him to the back alley, and then he’ll be quiet.’

•Editor 2: Lol, his luck wasn’t up to the game xD….2

As she was thinking that, Hemming, who ran to the kitchen, shook her head, grabbing Kalia by the wrist.

“Well, we came out secretly.
We shouldn’t make a bigger scene of the situation.”

Hemming was right.

Then I have to step in again before I go out.

As she was soothing herself with such thoughts, the woman, the mother and the child, approached her and offered their thanks to Kalia.

“I don’t know who you are, but thank you.”

“.
.
.
No.
On the contrary, I’m sorry for breaking things and causing trouble.”

“What did this lady do? It’s those fucking drunkards’ fault.
Don’t worry.
I can apply to the security guard for a restraining order.
This has never happened before!”

Hugging the child tightly, the woman smiled as if it was nothing.

Kalia somehow felt bitter and couldn’t simply return the smile and laugh it everything off casually.

“.
.
.
I’m more embarrassed about the fact that he fainted.”

The woman, Karen, smiled awkwardly, pointing to the black-haired man in the back.2

“Because the doctor was the first to faint.”

“.
.
.
A doctor?”

“Oh, yes.
He has been here for a while to meet his teacher’s lady, but he was caught up in this.”

“Have you ever heard his name?”

“It’s Dr.
Allen McEcker.
You just came here .
.
.
Oh, do you know him?”

Kalia held her forehead as if embarrassed by her words.

I never thought I’d run into the doctor who came to see me.

She looked at Allen, who fainted finely, shook her head, and approached him.

She grabbed him, stunned, and lifted him up before asking  Hemming to get a carriage.1

Soon the carriage arrived, and Kalia, who had put Allen on board first, came back into the store as if she had thought of something.

Karen and her child, who stood there staring at the girl leaving, opened their eyes in surprise when she came back.1

“I left something behind.”

Kalia, who said so, picked up the painting that the child had given her at the table where she sat a little while ago.

“I bought this .
.
.”

The little child blushed at the sight of her taking the picture with a slight smile.

As she was about to go out, she turned around again and approached the little boy.

“You said your name is Clark, didn’t you?”

“.
.
.
Yes.”

“If you want to protect your loved ones, you have to be very smart or very strong, Clark.”

•Editor 1: This child is gonna be the next Superman xD

•Editor 2: Lol, Kalia version 2.05

“.
.
.”

“I don’t know how to become smart, but I can teach you how to be strong enough not to be beaten up by a bully.
Do you want to learn?”1

The child opened his eyes wide and soon nodded his head strongly to her offer.

Kalia, who was smiling, stroked the child’s head and said, “Go to the Tacskate Knights Academy and give the name of Josiah Terevan.
Then he’ll guide you through the curriculum for children of your age who are similar to you.
But, it will take a lot of time, so you can’t come and see when your mother works.  Would that be okay?”

Tacskate Knights Academy!

It was a private knight academy run by General Kalia.

Unlike the Imperial Academy, it was not large in scale, but if it wasn’t for having so many people of talent and skill, it would not be considered a place of honour and integrity.

Of course, there are aristocrats who refuse to take the same class as the common people.
However, since the owner of the academy was also from the common people, she did not exert much energy into coercing the aristocrats to attend classes with commoners.

Also, just because you want to go, doesn’t mean that you can go there.

‘.
.
.
Who the hell is this?’

Karen was dumbfounded.

Clark pulled at his mother’s skirt.

“Mom, can I go?”

The child’s eyes sparkled, showing feverish excitement.

The child wanted to go there, but he didn’t bother his mother because he was afraid it would be a burden.

“I did ask you nicely.”

Karen felt sorry for it, and even though she was sorry, she smiled and asked in a soft voice.

“Do you want to go?”

The child, who was reading his mother’s expression, nodded weakly.

Then Karen spoke, stroking Clark’s head, “.
.
.
Go ahead, and I’ll pick you up at the end of the day.

Karen, who was looking at the brightened face of her child for a while, looked up and met with Kalia’s eyes.

Reluctantly, she approached Kalia and embraced her.

“I don’t know who you are, but I really appreciate it.
I’ve always felt sorry for bringing him to work because I had nowhere to leave him.”

Kalia slightly flinched at the intimate contact and appreciation of the stranger.

As she stood in a stiff posture, not knowing what to do, Karen smiled and let go of Kalia.

“If you give me your name, I will send you a thank you letter later.”

“Oh, no.
You don’t have to .
.
.”

“Please, can’t you tell me?”

The hesitating Kalia shook her head again.

“If Clark doesn’t get along well with the kids, I’ll tell them to let him go without hesitation, so just let him go as well.”

When she said so, she hurriedly turned around and got inside the carriage.

Her cheeks were burning hot.

She coughed in embarrassment and told the rider to set off the carriage.

“Older sister! See you again!” Clark shouted with a big wave of his hands.

Just in time, the guards arrived, and Kalia clutched the mother’s hand from the carriage, waving shyly as she watched Clark entering the store.
