it past.


“Why can’t you do what you are told? What a hopeless child.
All you have to do is listen to what I say.
I always told you, if you don’t follow my footsteps in learning the perfect etiquette, wonderful men won’t fall in love at first sight with you.”


‘I’m always right.’

People who believed so would mercilessly attack those who think otherwise.
Even if they were right, did they really have to talk down to someone that excessively?

Anne had taught me how to protect my own heart.

She led me to try bowing at various angles in front of the mirror and measured it with a protractor to find the angle that looked most beautiful.

“Hilda, you are tall, so if you bow deeply, your movement when you raise your body will look very big.
And thus, that angle earlier is the best.
From now on, use this angle for your greetings, bows, and vassal bows*.
If you still get the same criticisms from your mother, let’s review it again with me.
But if what your mother points out every time is different, then stick with this angle as it is.”

(*T/N: Vassal bow is a subordinate bow, where you kneel on one knee and put your right hand over your left chest.
Like this)

It was the first time.
The first time someone told me that maybe my mother was the wrong one.

The mansion servants, Father who only came home once in a while, everyone acted according to Mother’s words.
That’s mostly because they already felt resigned and were just hoping for my mother’s hysteria to end quickly.

When I realized that the words my mother continued to scream out with all her might didn’t actually reach anyone, I somehow felt that my mother was pitiful.


Every day, I bowed to Mother at the same angle.

And what my mother pointed out every day was different.

I had found my confidence after I was convinced that I wasn’t a person who couldn’t even do a decent bow like my mother always said.
My heart felt lighter now.

With the help of Ms.
Anne, I measured the most beautiful angles of every gesture.


Before I noticed it, my companions increased one after another in the empty classroom where it used to be just my teacher and me.
