The Reason I Keep Avoiding My Childhood Friend - Chapter 8
That is, of course, until he opened his mouth.
After staring at me for a long while, Kir asked in an irritated voice that did not befit a child, “What?”
The illusion of an angel shattered. Instead, that one word was filled with the pure energy of ‘absolute arrogance.’
Even at that young age, I stepped back at the tone of his voice and the immense authority it conveyed.
The instinct of my old self, which had suffered at the hands of such power, was shouting.
Run! Run! He’s a piece of sh*t! That guy is thoughtlessness personified! Your life will be ruined!
“Hey, come here.”
He ordered as if he’d noticed that I was about to run away. Ugh, I can’t even defy this cheeky little boy.
Even at that age, he had the arrogance of someone who knew that if he spoke, others would have to listen.
Unlike my anxious mind, my face was calm as I obeyed his words. I stepped forward and stood in front of the little guy.
Why was I acting so obedient to this obnoxious kid? After piecing together various information, I realized who this little kid must be.
“Who are you? Why’re you in my house?”
Where and when did he learn to be so cynical at such a young age? Furthermore, hearing him say “my house” proved my suspicion of his identity.
Yes, it could only be that person:
He is the young master and only heir of the Grand Duchy of Rheinfont, where my father works.
Thanks to my preparation before arriving at the mansion, I was able to identify him quickly.
It’s no wonder he’s so arrogant despite his youth.
In this world, if the imperial family is to be considered a ‘diamond spoon,’ then the Rheinfont Duchy would be the highest grade of ‘gold spoon.’ Honestly not much lower in rank than the diamond spoon.
Ha, you know what? With the Rossi’s – the imperial family – as distant relatives, he even has royal blood flowing through his veins. Additionally, the fact that he is the sole successor of the Grand Duchy means that this guy will grow up to be someone no less influential than the emperor himself. So considering him a ‘diamond spoon’ would still be fitting.
He is someone who was spoiled and given everything he could ever want from the time of birth. So it’s not surprising that he is so rude.
Anyway, his father is the owner of this mansion, where I’m going to stay from now on. As the daughter of a subordinate of that same owner, he is someone I can never disobey.
Generally, the commoners who work under the rich suffer more than those who do not, because even if the pay is better, you have no power to speak out.
I wouldn’t have come here if I had known about the existence of this human disaster. Well, it’s not like it was really possible to avoid coming here, even if I tried. Alas, this child’s body is too limited. I can’t wait to grow up.
“Hey, little girl, who are you?”
Ha! Look at him talking.
I should’ve noticed the pompous look in his eyes the moment we met and avoided him. But I was captivated by his beauty and missed my timing in the end. He is a kid with an exceedingly dangerous charm.
When I stayed silent, Kirsec put his hands in his pockets, stuck out one leg, and tilted his head. If I’d met him in an alley, I would’ve thought he was a bully trying to rob me of my lunch money.
Even with short limbs and the cuteness of a child, his tyrant’s aura was at full force.
I was surprised and almost lost my cool, but quickly regained my composure.
“I’m Arendine Aide. Hertman Aide is my father. How do you do?”
Placing my hands over my abdomen, I bowed politely.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
There! Just accept my cute, polite greeting and go away! You don’t wanna leave? Then at least let me leave!
I gave him my brightest smile and felt him pause for a moment.
“…You’re the daughter of Commander Hertman?”
As expected, he knows my father. His face was filled with skepticism.
I know, I know. You can’t believe it either, right? That such a cute little girl could be my bandit-like father’s daughter.
