Rere pinched both of my cheeks with a worried expression.

“Hot! Hot! It’s as hot as a boiled egg! Come on! Big Bunny, you’re going to pop!”

The maids in the room ran out quickly at Rere’s deafening scream.
The pale-faced nanny also rushed to me.

“Are you sick, madam?”

“Oh, no! I’m not sick!”

But three pairs of eyes watched me intently as if they didn’t believe it.
In the end, I removed Luca’s hand myself as it is the main cause of my reddened cheeks.

“I’m okay.

“You’re not okay, Big Bunny.
You keep saying you’re okay, when you’re not.
It’s going to be a pain! What a nuisance to Rere!”

At the same time, Rere lied down beside me after covering me with a blanket.

“I’m going to take care of Big Bunny!”

“Rere, are you going to take care of me? By lying down like this?”

You just need to hold Rere’s hand.”

The small, soft hand of hers was wrapped around my hand tightly.
Almost as though she was afraid I might go somewhere.

“Okay, then I’ll lie down and rest today.
So about the doctor…”

You have to see a doctor! Or else I’ll make a fuss here.”

“Ah, alright.”

Rere stroked my head with a satisfied face.

“Still hot.”

But Rere didn’t know that my heart was beating like crazy because Luca looked at me with a worried expression.

And behind him, I could see the bewildered nanny.

“I think I should rest for now.
Nanny, we’ll do the rest later.”

“Um…I also think it’s better to postpone it until madam gets better.
However, the party is going to be held next week.
There are a few urgent things that must be taken care of.”

“…In a week?”

Master can’t wait to introduce madam to other people, so he pushed it forward.”

Even corpses in the grave would wake up after hearing that.
I almost rose from my seat as well, but Rere held me firmly.

“No, you can’t.
Lie down.”

“Rere, next week…”

At that time,

“Oh my.
Are you sick? Do you have a fever? Are you coughing?”

The doctor, who was sweating intensely, rushed inside and headed to Rere straight away.
Then, he sighed and began making the medicine in a swift manner.

“What is it this time?”


“Please wait.
This is the medicine for a fever.
I got a very precious herb for you this time.
I don’t think it’s going to have a tremendous effect because it was already used last time…”

He had already finished making the medicine before anyone could say anything.

“But you look better today.
I’m relieved, but please take the medicine…”

“Who says I’m sick?”

“…Sorry? You’re not sick?”

“Not me, but Big Bunny is having a fever.”

“Oh my goodness.”

The doctor, who became even more surprised, exclaimed.

“Oh, no.
Because they didn’t tell me who was sick, I presumed it must be our young miss.
It can’t be helped.
Here, please take this.”

He didn’t even say sorry and handed me the medicine he just made.

“Isn’t that medicine for Rere?”

“Because you said you have a fever.
I saw your face burning red.”

“But…why are you giving me medicine that was specifically made for Rere?”

“This is just a fever-reducing medicine.
So there’s nothing special about it.
Ordinary drugs that people usually take are quite effective.”

Isn’t it because you’re too lazy to make it?

“Is that so? In that case, it’s quite effective for anyone, huh?”

“Please take it.”

“Hurry up and eat it, Big Bunny.
He’s quite capable even if he looks like that.
It didn’t hurt when I ate it.”

“…What do you mean by that, miss?”

“But, doctor…”

In the midst of the two who were quarreling, I nervously asked the doctor.


“What happens when a sick person eats it?”

“Well, I’ve never dealt with such a stupid case before, so I don’t know.”

I didn’t feel good about it, but I didn’t show my nasty temper to anyone aside from the duke.

How could you not know? You’re a doctor.
Shouldn’t you know the side effects at the very least?

However, I couldn’t spew out a single complaint…

At that time, Rere took the medicine from the doctor and put it in my hands.

“Hurry up.
Eat it, Big Bunny.”

“Uhm, yes.
I will.”

“Don’t tell me Big bunny doesn’t want to eat it? Are you a child?”

I will.”

Everyone watched me closely, so I ended up taking it even though I wasn’t sick.

“Gosh, it’s so bitter.”

“Good job.”

Rere’s adorable hand gently patted my head as if she was praising a little kid.

The nanny, Luca, and even the doctor looked at me as though I had done a good job.
Due to that, I got embarrassed, and hastily handed out the empty bottle to the doctor.

“But I thought you said it contained a precious herb.
Can I use that for myself?”

“It does, but…I think it’ll be fine if it’s madam.”


“Because I was told to save medicine for madam.”

“Is that so?”

A few days ago, my master gave me expensive herbs and asked me to make medicine to keep your body healthy.
He said you must have a problem because you looked pale.”

What’s with him this time?

“Since he told me to make you medicine, I was going to visit you, madam.
So, this actually turned for the better.”

“Medicine, you say?”

The duke ordered him to give me medicine? Aren’t you mistaking it with poison?

“Daddy did that?”

That’s right.”

“He must have come to his senses!”

“…Rere, do you trust your daddy?”

“Of course!”

I didn’t believe him.
So I frowned when I saw Rere smile innocently.

“Umm…Big Bunny, you still don’t like my daddy, right?”

“Yes! I never said I liked him!”

Seeing Rere smiling brightly, I felt a little anxious.
Surely, he’s not going to tell people that he’s doing it for my sake when he’s, in fact, planning to kill me, right?

‘Didn’t he say he hates me more than Astra?’

“Rere, by the way…”


“Did your daddy ever say something about your fourth mother?”


“Did he?”

“He did.”

That’s it.
It turns out that the situation of the third mother in the novel went off course not because of Rere, but because of the duke.

It was then.

Luca stepped in as if to lessen my anxiety.

“Have you found the medicine to cure our young miss?”

Luca, who had been looking at us affectionately, urged him with a sharp voice.

“N-Not yet…”

“It’s upsetting considering you’re the most talented person in the empire, and we only managed to bring you in after much difficulty.”

“…That’s…because Miss Rebecca has an incurable disease…”

Luca’s voice was so cold that I thought he was someone else.
If I didn’t recognize him initially, I would have mistaken him with the duke.

“So, you haven’t found a way?”

“Well, it’s not like there’s no solution at all.
A medicine I asked her to take was effective recently.”

“Effective? Tell me the exact medicine that was effective and the exact situation in detail.”

“Why must I say such things to a mere knight…!”

Although he was irritated, the doctor quickly noticed Luca’s foul mood.

“Ahem, ahem.
Well, rather than the medicine, I think it has something to do with the circumstances.
It was a strange case.
After consuming the pills for a few days, our young miss became a lot better.”

“Don’t you think it’s normal to get better after consuming medicine for days?”

“It’s not like that! It worked even when I gave her fake medicines.”

All of us were dumbfounded and stared at him.

“Fake medicine? Don’t tell me you took all that money and fed her fake medicines?”

“I-It was a mistake.
I’ve only done that a few times.
I’ll report to the duke myself, so you don’t have to be concerned!”

Unintentionally confessing his mind, he mouthed the word ‘damn it’ with a stiff face.

“Damn it, why am I telling you this…!”

“Seems like you’re confessing.”

“…Nonsense! I never liked you from the start! A knight with a face exactly like the duke!”

The doctor blew his nose as if he was extremely irritated.

“I admire you so much.
I believe that you’ll find medicine that can cure our young miss.
Therefore, I look forward to your cooperation.”

He returned to his affectionate self.
In the meantime, the doctor was preparing to leave.

“In any case, since our young miss is not sick, I’ll have to excuse myself.
Please let me know if she is sick.
Of course, if the madam is as well…”


He looked wary of Luca and quickly left.
On the other hand, Rere’s gaze never left me despite the occurrences that have happened so far.

“Rere, why are you looking at me like that?”


“Then, since I’ve taken my medication, shall we look at the documents?”

“You may not like it, but I think Big Bunny needs to rest!”

“May I help you then?”

Luca, who was watching us, smiled affectionately and sat down on the chair next to the bed.

“That would be great!”

“I’ll sit here and tell you the best option.
Then, please choose between them.”

“Madam, that’s a good idea!”

“Rere also likes it!”

Everyone liked it, so I only nodded at Luca’s suggestion.

Why are you so sweet? I had such thoughts from time to time.
Sometimes, I even thought Luca might be the duke himself.
But they had different eye colors.


“Rere, there’s no way Luca is your daddy, right?”

“Yes, why? Does Big Bunny want Luca to be my daddy?”

“Yes, because he’s sweet.”

“That’s true.
But what can we do?”

“Would you like me to be Ms.
Leona’s husband and the young miss’ father?”
