“What’s wrong?”

“Nothing.
Do you want some more?”

“No.
I’m full.”

The Big Bear and Little Bear’s meal was soon over. 

“Stay here.
I’ll get the carriage.”

“We’re not going by magic anymore? Are we going by carriage?”

“Yes.
I don’t want to use magic anymore.”

I wondered what was going on, but I didn’t ask this time either. 

The Big Bear rubbed my head lightly and disappeared out the window.
I looked over the window.

‘It’s so different from the Spania estate…’

The buildings were big and the roadsides were well organized.
The people who came and went were dressed properly and had clean faces.
Above, all their expressions were not dark nor bad. 

“It’s so much more beautiful than where I was.
Why is it so different when it’s so close to the next area?”

Compared to this place, the Spania area where I lived looked like hell. 

“Because of the Lord.
The owner of the Spania territory you were in is the worst piece of garbage.” 

The Little Bear’s eyes shone fiercely when he pressed the ring button that released the Illusion Magic. 

“We need to clean him up quickly.”

“Why not just clean him up now?”

“That Lord’s backing is a little strong.”

“Backing? Who is it?”

The Little Bear replied with an expression of difficulty. 

“Just know there’s someone like that.”

‘There’s someone strong enough that the Duke can’t clean them up?’

The Little Bear giggled and looked at me. 

“You’re so cute.”

“Really?”

“Yeah.
Here, look.”

The Little Bear conjured a little magic mirror in front of my face. 

“Try a smile.” 

The pink blush that spread across the cheeks filled with baby fat enhanced the small dimple at the side of the cheeks.
The small lips opened slightly, and the front teeth peeked through slightly.
The big eyes that glittered with loveliness only enhanced the picture. 

‘I didn’t portray this feeling in the past.’ 

After I washed clean and wore neat clothes, my appearance was emphasized.
The smile on my face was a little awkward, but it was indeed undoubtedly cute. 

‘I’m a little shy for some reason…’

The Little Bear then asked with a smile, 

“Dia, do you want to be my sister?”

“Do you want me to be your little sister because I’m cute?”

“Of course you’re adorable.
But that’s not the only reason.
I feel like we get along quite well.
Should I say you’re like my own sibling.
My sister.
What?”

I shook my head immediately. 

“Hyuk! How can you say no right away? Dia, my family is great! We’re Dukes you know!”

“I don’t want to.”

“You can have even prettier shoes and clothes! You’ll be treated well.”

“I don’t want to.”

“You can eat bear-shaped food often!”

My will shook a little, but I still answered firmly. 

“I don’t want to.”

“Even candy! No, you can eat even more delicious desserts than candy!” 

My will once again shook, but this time again I overcame the temptation. 

As I repeatedly refused, the Little Bear with a sullen face asked, 

“Why don’t you like it?”

I couldn’t trust the two bears just yet.
Besides what kind of sibling could I be? 

I answered roughly. 

“I don’t want to be a noble.” 

“Huh? Why?:”

“The Lord is bad.”

“You must hate all nobles because the Lord of Spania was bad, but not all nobles are like that.
I and my father are both nobles, but we’re good people.”

The Little Bear pointed at himself with his hand and spoke proudly as if he had no shame. 

I asked, pretending not to see. 

“How about the Duke?”

“The Duke?”

“Juliano’s Dad.”

I couldn’t say Big Bear after all. 

“My father is not the Duke.”

“Then why do you say the word, Duke?”

“Ah, is that why you thought so? The Duke is not my father, but my mother.
My father is the Duke’s husband.”

The Little Bear pointed his hand to his face. 

“Look, my hair is black and my eyes are gold.
I also have black mana.
These are the three characteristics of my family’s direct lineage.
You can only become Duke if you have these.”

Suddenly, I remembered the fact that my mana was black. 

“So Juliano’s mother is the Duke, and she has those features?”

“Yes.”

I suddenly recalled the reason why the black leopard with golden eyes was used as a family crest. 

It was because of its appearance. 

‘But if you look at Little Bear, isn’t he more bear than leopard?’

Other than the color of his eyes and hair, he looked just like a Big Bear. 

“Then what do you call him? I mean, Juliano’s dad? Duchess?”

“No, we call him Count.
If you marry a Duke, you become a Count.
It’s in the papers.”

“I see… Oh, by the way…”

The Little Bear was the Duke’s Son and commoners had to use honorifics when talking to nobles.
No matter what my actual status was, I was currently indeed a commoner…

‘Come to think of it, I’ve been talking informally until now, but they haven’t gotten angry at all.’

If it was Spania’s Lord, he would have already killed me the first time he heard it.
In a very cruel way too. 

I made up my mind to be polite to the Little Bear. 

“Sir!”

“What?”

“Sir! Should I call you Young Master? After all, I have to use honorifics.”

The Little Bear’s eyes opened wide, before closing his mouth as if trying to suppress a smile. 

“Hmm, I see.
Call me by my first name, not Young Master.” 

“Is this allowed?”

“Yes.
Of course.
Or you can directly call me brother.”

“About that–”

The Little Bear grinned, before his face suddenly hardened as he put his right hand on the bracelet on his left wrist. 

“That’s strange.
This bracelet is a set so you can see where the other person wearing it is.
My father is getting farther and farther away.
He’s going out of town.
What happened?”

“Let’s go.”

“But he told us to stay here.” 

“Let’s go.” 

The Little Bear looked worried but nodded. 

“Okay, let’s go.”

The Little Bear once again cast his Illusion Magic, paid for the meal, and hugged me.
It was a little awkward, but I hugged the Little Bear’s neck back with my hands. 

The Little Bear opened his mouth after a while but soon recovered his expression as we entered the deserted road.
The Little Bear, who used Invisibility Magic and Presence Erasing Magic to get there faster, hugged me and started running fast. 

We got out of town in less than five minutes.
Soon we arrived at a forest full of large, leafy trees.
The Little Bear’s pace did not slow down at all because of this. 

‘Ah!’

Because my magic was stronger than the Little Bear, I felt something through Detection Magic. 

I tapped one hand on the shoulder of the Little Bear holding me.
The Little Bear understood my intention and stopped at once.
I pointed to one side with my hand and whispered very quietly towards the Little Bear. 

“A hundred meters ahead.
Three bad guys.”

The Little Bear nodded knowingly and dropped me on the floor. 

“Wait here.
It might be dangerous.”

“No.”

I started running fast in the direction I just pointed out.
