No wonder Ciel went crazy. Despite growing up looking at three handsome brothers resembling their parents, Alex was something else. Red eyes with an arrogant look beneath flapping navy hair. He stole the heart of many girls with an appearance that not even her second brother, Isaac, who is known for his beauty, could match.
“You’re so handsome.”
I ended up muttering without realizing it. He was really handsome, but somehow he was a little scary.
So you cut my neck with that handsome face, huh?
As the cold red eyes came closer, I slipped out and hid behind my sister.
Still, I definitely succeeded in attracting attention. If this happens, Alex can’t help but look at my sister.
Unlike my pure white dress that matches my mom’s, the golden clothes worn by Alex and Clara made them both look like a couple.
Now all they have to do is see each other and fall in love at first sight. But even with Clara, the girl destined to be with him, in front of his eyes, Alex talked to me first.
“It’s a gift from His Majesty the Emperor, so please come to receive it yourself, Lady Valentine.”
“My sister will accept it for me.”
I have to keep my life, so even if I don’t do anything like in the original, if I purposely show my ugly side, Clara will shine brighter.
Unaware that it was my plan to make them closer, my sister tried to receive the gift for me.
Come on, feel disappointed in me, who doesn’t even know how to behave, and fall in love with my beautiful sister.
I was excited to push my sister into the Crown Prince’s arms with such an evil heart.
“My lady, I’m talking to you right now.”
Huh? This is not what’s supposed to happen. The prince didn’t even look at Clara but was staring at me with his red eyes.
His cold eyes showed no emotion. I got goosebumps thinking that he could grow up to be my enemy.
I don’t want to be killed by my favorite character. However, this moment is the most important scene of the original; the first meeting between the heroine and the male lead.
I can’t back down!
So I grabbed my sister’s skirt and hid behind her again.
Perceiving that my attitude was obviously strange, Isaac approached us.
“Your Highness, I’m sorry, my sister is immature and very shy. She’s still a child, so please understand.”
“I entered the academy at the same age as the lady. It’s hard to say that she’s young.”
What the hell does this guy want from an eight-year-old? I’m being treated like a fool because of the author’s ridiculous settings.
God dang. I lost. I had no choice but to get out from behind my sister and greet him gracefully.
“This is Lady Valentine. I appreciate that Your Highness came to congratulate me on my birthday, please tell His Majesty the Emperor that I’m moved by his kindness.”
So I thanked the Emperor, but I didn’t thank you at all. I won’t fall for you later either.
I steadily drew a line with the male lead. Fortunately, he didn’t seem to have anything to say about my behavior.
I greeted him with a perfect attitude that was flawless and hid behind my sister again.
Hehehe, I’m safe. No one thought it was strange because everyone in the Dukedom knows how much I liked my sister.
Except for the male lead.
“Looks like the lady follows her sister very much.”
“Ciel is usually a nice and polite child, but she must be shy today. I’m really sorry.”
Why is it that the topic of conversation between a future couple sounds so much like parenting? Anyway, I already greeted the Crown Prince, and his servant delivered the gift to one of my family’s servants.
Since it was a gift from the Emperor, my father recommended opening it here.
“It’s been a long time since Your Majesty has sent a gift. Isn’t that right, honey?”
“I know. What did he send this year?”
Compared to my father, my mother’s eyes were full of doubts.
There was a reason for my mom to be like this. Last year, he sent a gold necklace with a rustic design, and the year before that, it was a golden bracelet that looked old-fashioned.
Maybe it’s just a rustic golden ring or an earring this year. I unpacked the gift without much expectation.
“Oh, my God. What an incredible thing.”
I thought the packaging was a little big for a ring or an earring, but what came out when I took it off was, unexpectedly, a wand needed to use magic, the legendary Lord Levatane.
“This is too generous of him.”
“I’ve heard that the young lady has a talent for magic. It was difficult to find an owner, but I’ve prepared it because I think Lady Valentine can handle it well enough.”
The servant who followed Alex eagerly flattered my father.
Oh, that’s right. In the novel, Ciel showed a natural talent for magic. The problem is that all of that natural talent is devoted to harassing her sister a.k.a the heroine.
In addition, in the final battle with Alex, the original Ciel used the Levatane to wipe out all the soldiers.
Levatane, who grows up according to the owner’s ability, was a dainty size for my age now.
It’s an incredibly useful item. I always wondered how Ciel got it; it was a birthday present.
“Since you have it, why don’t you show us the magic you learned recently?”
I pondered for a moment about what my mother said.
In fact, the things were a little twisted. Ciel was originally a magic genius. By the age of eight, she was able to shoot fire and water from her hands without using the Levatane, but there was a very small problem.
It was me who came into Ciel’s body. My memory, which doesn’t know anything about magic, took over my head, and my ability to acquire magic quickly fell.
Because of this, my younger brother, Louis, called me a dimwit.
And it was hard to refute, in fact, my overflowing mana was useless.
But I think it’ll be better now. I was in agony holding the Levatane tightly. Okay, let’s try it. You can do well.
According to my teacher, the most important thing about any spell was the confidence that it would actually happen.
(PR: I can’t stop thinking “it’s leviOsa, not leviosA” lol)
The reason I’m not good at magic is because I have lived in Seoul for more than two decades as a terribly realistic woman who does not believe in ghosts, let alone magic.
How can I feel confident? I gave strength to the hand that held Levatane and remembered what I can think of as real in this life now.
Levatane glowed with mana and petals fluttered from the ceiling one by one.
Clara, walking on the flowery path. That’s all I really want.
Flower leaves poured down Clara’s head like a waterfall.
“What the heck!”
The party turned into a mess because of my failure in controlling my mana. I can’t believe I turned this into a death flag.
I threw away Levatane and jumped into a pile of flower leaves to save Clara, buried in petals.
“It’s dangerous, my lady.”
Just before I threw myself in, something suddenly grasped my waist.
The cold-hearted Prince Alex was looking down at me like I was pathetic. I pushed him as hard as I could and ran to save Clara.
“Let go of me, Clara!”
“I’m fine, Ciel. This is really pretty.”
Clara, who came out of a pile of petals, smiled as if she was enjoying the situation.
As expected of the heroine. Only seeing the beauty in the world with such a positive mindset.
I threw away the petals as much as I could and ran into Clara’s arms.
“I’m sorry, sister, I’m sorry. You got surprised?”
“I was, but it’s still amazing. Our Ciel is amazing.”
In the arms of the angelic Clara, I glanced at Prince Alex.
It seems that my plan is slowly working. He was looking carefully at the sisters buried in the petals.
“Then, shall we clean up?”
When father, the best wizard of the Empire, came forward, the petals flew quietly to the mouth of the garden.
If I wasn’t in this family, I would have been scolded for my mistake but surprisingly, they were all gathering around me.
Isaac, who is a fool for his younger sister, praised me openly.
“Our Ciel must be a genius. It’s amazing how many petals have been produced.”
“That’s because you don’t know anything, Isaac. She can’t control her abilities smoothly. There’s still a long way to go.”
Meanwhile, Theo is the only one who says the right thing. I looked at the atmosphere while nodding my head hard.
I have to hurry. I have to get Alex and Clara together as soon as possible so I can get rid of my death flag.
When the two get married, I can enjoy a golden spoon life as the sister-in-law of the next Emperor of the Empire and the sister of the Duke.
Hooray! Hooray, hooray, hooray.
If I had a lot of money, it was my dream to buy a lot of buildings, get rent, travel, and live comfortably.
Being born like this, it would be good to improve my magic skills and wield Levatane.
“Ciel, do you want to dance with me?”
I stood next to Isaac for a long time while my sister was dancing.
Maybe it’s because she dressed up nicely today, but she was already dancing with her fourth partner.
And I saw Theo watching the whole scene. He might want to ask Clara for a dance, but he probably won’t be able to do it today, or ever.
Theo, you poor, sad thing. I tried hard to turn a blind eye to my poor older brother and danced with Isaac.
Unfortunately, I’m not good at this. I’m actually really bad. I stepped on his foot about twice by mistake, but my second brother, who loves his sister very much, did not blink.
“My dear sister, your dancing skills have improved a lot.”
“Doesn’t your foot hurt?”
“It doesn’t. Ciel is as light as a feather, so it’s fine.”
It probably hurts a lot. But even when I stepped on his foot like this, my second brother who loves me just for breathing, kept smiling.
After the song finished, my youngest brother, Louis approached us.
“Brother, mother’s calling you. In the meantime, I’ll deal with the kid.”
“You’re a little kid too!”
“Keep my princess safe until I get back. Okay?”
