ugh it was hard to believe such a magical world he told her.
‘In my world, both women and men received the same education.
It’s not something to be pointed at, and it’s not weird.
It’s just something that… should be a given.’
‘Then, what do you use it for?’
‘So that we can get a job.’
The reason why his story was poison to her even though she thought it was too good to be true.
Because it made Nadia want to live in that world.
‘You’re smart, Miss Nadia.
To the point where it just feels like it’s a waste for you to live in the shadow of your father.
If it were in my world… No, you could have been more free if you had been born in a different era.’
He told her many stories.
Economy, politics, and war.
It was something that no one had ever taught Nadia, or that Nadia had ever thought of learning herself.
Since those knowledge would be useless for the noble daughter.
The life of an illegitimate child with a Duke as her father was obvious.
When the time came, she would marry into the marriage her father had decided.
And she would have a child and die when her time came.
That was the existing rule Nadia knew.
If she hadn’t learned anything from Lee Jiho, she wouldn’t have been able to make good use of the luck of being back in the past.
Nadia may have been complacent that she got to avoid her unjust death simply by marrying the Marquis of Winterfell.
‘If I had done so in the past, I’m sure I would have been only waiting to see if I would still be hated even after I have given all my dowry to pay off their debt.’
As far as Nadia knew, it would have been the only way to survive and to be loved by her husband.
However, using the story Lee Jiho told her, Nadia was able to break away from this world’s common sense.
She could look at the world in a different way than before.
Even a noble daughter could live without the protection of her father, husband, or son.
In that sense, Lee Jiho was no more than her teacher.
Unfortunately, Nadia was not very important to Lee Jiho.
A tool that he could abandon to climb the social ladder higher.
That was all.
Nadia smiled bitterly for a moment and then looked bright again.
There were too many eyes looking at her and it reminded her not to be lost in the bitter old memories.
“Is there anything else you’re curious about?”
“No, that would be all.”
“Then let’s go back to talking about the herbs.
As you know, our estate is heavily in debt.
The number of herbs we need to gain enough gold by the due date…..”
The office gradually heated up with discussion.
