tely!”

“Haha, I apologize, Mr.
Shylock.
I was attending something…”

Gordon bent hard on the man while panting for air.

Nadia thought that anyone would take that scene as an abuse to elders.

However, the astonishing sight didn’t end there.

“Whatever, where is your lord? I have something to say, so I came to meet him!”

‘That crazy…’

Nadia wouldn’t even call her neighbor like that.
If Glenn’s loyal knights had seen the shylock’s insulting manner, there could be a bloodbath.

What in the world did the man have that he could treat other people that way? She immediately got the answer.

“Ah, that’s… Our lord is not present right now…”

“Where could the new groom go after holding a wedding just one day ago? I know everything, so you can’t hide anything from me! The payment due date is near! I must get your definite answer today!”

“Look.
You made us wait long  enough.
Do you know how much debt you have?”

“Since the troops are back from the expedition, didn’t you get something from it?”

“Besides, didn’t the bride come with a huge dowry? I believe you’re not trying to ask me to postpone the repayment date again this time.
We are going to go bankrupt before you could even pay!”

“T-That–”

Again, it was a group of shylocks who lent money to Marquis Winterfell.

The thick cold sweat forming on the butler’s forehead seemed to be so clearly visible that Nadia could see it from a distance.

Abusing elders was out of line.

But the real shocking part was still coming.
The shylock at the forefront with a sash around his neck shouted.

“If you can’t repay the money this time, I’ll take the Winward plains as collateral!”

What? Winward plains?

Nadia’s eyes widened.

‘If he is talking about the plains in the shade of the wind…’

It was the area that accounted for half of the production in the Winterfell Estate.

It was the most fertile land in this barren territory.

“Ugh!”

Nadia choked from nothing.

A harsh cough escaped from her mouth.

Finally, she could remember how the Winterfell paid all of their debts in the past.

If one could call it a solution.

‘How is that solving the problem? Once he takes the land as collateral, it will be over!’
