oing to eat.”
“Go ahead.
Bring food for the two of us.”
“Why don’t you leave!”
“Are you eating three meals a day? Are you sick? That was my duty to take care of you as your mom.
That’s why I’m here.”
“…You’re not even my mom, you’re just pretending to be my mom! Don’t make me laugh.”

Rebecca, who was sitting in the farthest seat from me, stomped her feet and began to hit the table with the utensils.

As if it was a familiar sight, the maids quickened their pace and eventually placed the food in front of Rebecca.

Perhaps she was afraid that I would take away her food, Rebecca hurriedly lifted the spoon and began emptying the plates.

“You can eat slowly.
I’m not going to take it away.”
“….You’re not taking it away? But you acted like you were going to do so!”
“I was just trying to teach you basic manners.
One should never steal food from someone who starts eating properly.”

Only then did Rebecca drink water and eat slowly.
Even so, I was not in a comfortable state because the child was busy glaring at me.

‘Eating etiquette is the basic of the basics.
I have to teach you that, but now is not a good time to do it.’

When I was about to get out to let her have a comfortable meal, Rebecca, who had a few spoons of soup, bread, fruit, and drink, jumped out of her seat.

“I’m going to play.”
“Are you done eating?”
Are you even interfering with my meals now?”

I saw the leftover food on the table.
She didn’t eat any vegetables and didn’t even touch the deliciously cooked steak.

“Is this how the child eats?”

I raised my chin to point it at Rebecca, who was sitting on the floor.

The maid next to her quickly bowed her head.

“Miss Rebecca doesn’t usually eat well.
Especially this kind of dish…”

They said that Rebecca couldn’t digest food like meat.

“She doesn’t look that small though.”

As if it caught her attention, Rebecca’s head turned a little bit towards me.

“Am I not small?”
“Did you say you were five-year-old?”
“Yes! I’m five.”
Not so small for a five-year-old.”

At my words, Rebecca smiled brightly.

“So I’m not small.”

I was surprised by her innocent voice that I heard for the first time.

‘Did no one ever tell you because you have nobody you can compare yourself to? Even so, the nanny should have told you.’

At that time, the nanny intercepted with her sharp voice.

“Why don’t you stop saying nonsense to the miss?”
“Nonsense? You surely know that the child is taller than her peers, right?”
“She’s not big.
How can you say that when you know nothing?”

Did you say I know nothing?

Having lived in an orphanage, I have seen children at that age more than anyone else.
Therefore, I know for sure that the child is taller than her age.
Even Leona, who lived in this world and faced numerous people, was well-versed in this basic information.

But for lying in front of me…

“Nanny, you don’t seem to know because you’ve been in this house for too long.”
“….Are you disregarding me now?”
“You disregarded me first.
I’m just returning the favor.”

Upon hearing my words, the nanny’s mouth began to quiver.

Her eyes shook to the left and right as if she wanted to reprimand me right away.

“You are so impudent for someone who came here for the money.
If I were you, I’d be so embarrassed to appear before Miss Rebecca.
The people before you didn’t come to ‘receive money’ and sell their body like a prostitute.”
“Someone who is a nanny doesn’t filter out her words in front of a child?”
“It’s not wrong, is it?”
But what is the difference between me playing the role of her mother for money and you playing the role of her nanny for money?”

I don’t know where her confidence came from, but she tried to raise her voice but shut her mouth immediately.

“Tell me, what’s so different?”
“There’s a saying.
The dog smeared with shit is scolding the dog smeared with bran.
It’s so~ funny that you said that to me.”
“We’re not the same!”
“There’s no idiot who thinks it’s not the same.
If you’re going to be so loud in front of the child, just get out.
I’m kicking you out this time.”

Some people need to get scolded harshly so they can finally wake up.

Just like the nanny.

Eventually, I finally started my late meal after she became quiet.
It was a cold soup and steak, but the food tasted very good.

Thanks to it, I finished my meal quickly.

‘If I can eat this delicious meal every day, I’ll visit this room more often even if I don’t like it.’

If I come often, Rebecca will hate me more.

Eventually, the duke will kick me out, right?

The wind breezed mildly.

“Well, nanny, let’s go out.”
“Do you mean it? Are you sure you don’t want to stay up here all night?”
“Of course, so let’s get out.”
“Ha? But the miss can’t sleep without me!”
“Well, I don’t think so.”

Perhaps it was a hard day.
Rebecca was sleeping soundly in her maid’s arms.

“Ha….I’m afraid she’ll look for me when she wakes up!”
