Although she happened to hit a jackpot, the new Marchioness of Winterfell was only a foolish noble lady who had just become an adult.

If he gave her a flattering word, she would soon be flattered.

“Congratulations, Madam.
You’re born with a gift in business.

“We can’t match your skill, Madam.”

“You are the blessing of the Winterfell family!”

“You’re a blessing to this barren north!”

The corners of the merchants’ mouths, who forced themselves to smile, were trembling slightly.

It wasn’t something that Nadia would miss.

Even though they said how ‘lucky’ she was, their cold eyes couldn’t lie.

If you knew it would go on like this, you would be mistaken.
She began to speak in a calm voice.

“Well, I have one thing to tell you.”


“The correspondence should have arrived by now, but I’ll tell you in advance so that you will not be surprised.”

What correspondence? The movements of the hard-working flatters stopped for a moment.

All eyes were looking at Nadia.

There’s no way…..

“The Winterfell family has decided to stop doing business with some of your businesses.”


“Forgive us, Madam!”

It wasn’t like Nadia was going to arrest them,  but it felt almost the same for them.
Everyone got what she meant, although she didn’t say which business specifically.

Only those who delayed the repayment date could look at the scene calmly, as if they had seen this coming.

“It was decided after several meetings with the treasurers.
I can’t change the decision.”

“W-We did wrong.
P-Please show us mercy once!”

“Madam! Please forgive us just once!”

“Forgiveness? I am not sure what you’re talking about.”

The merchants’ expressions were distorted in dismay.
If she retaliated in public, they could file a complaint for her unfairness in making decisions.

It would be possible to create a public opinion that criticized the Marchioness of Winterfell by bribing some nobles.

Shylock’s mouth was heard with a whisper of teeth.

‘This sly–!’

However, there was nothing they could do if she  simply decided to end their business relationship.

If a merchant who mainly worked in the Northern part of the Kingdom failed to open a deal with the Marquis of Winterfell, there would be losses in many ways.

However, those losses would only occur, but they were not fatal enough to ruin their business completely.

Any man who was capable would be able to make up for the loss using a different way.

Nadia thought it was a decision that was neither too much nor too soft.

She had to keep those who had morality and virtue for a long time and get rid of those who didn’t.

‘Well, if they are capable enough, they will make it through other means.’

Since they didn’t consider Winterfell’s situation, there was no reason for Winterfell to consider theirs, right?

Nadia continued with a decisive face.

“I guess everyone already knows even though I didn’t mention which business I will end the relationship with.
That means they know their fault, right? I won’t say much.
You’d better give up the idea of making a profit on the Winterfell estate as of today.”


“F-Forgive me! Please spare me just once!”

Small merchants fell at the feet of the Marchioness and kneeled for their wrongdoing.

But Shylock had a different idea.

‘You fools! The Winterfell is going to be cash-strapped again one day!’

Even if this black death disease made them a lot of money, the fact that the Winterfell estate was barren did not change.

No matter how much money they spent, the Winterfell would end up bottoming out someday.

It was obvious that the Winterfell family, which had no other means of making money, would be in debt again.

In addition, since they earned a fortune from the disease, they must have been spending so much to expand their business.

Shylock thought that Nadia was stupid enough to start a herbal tea business with a thorny herb, so it won’t take long before she ran out of all the money she had earned.

‘The results of the fluke are bound to reveal one’s actual ability one day.’

He could imagine a scene where the cocky aristocrats were begging him for money.

That cheeky Marchioness would soon realize her mistake too.

Shylock took a few steps forward and opened his mouth.


Nadia’s gaze turned to him.

Even if she was stupid, he thought he should at least give her one last warning.

Shylock, who looked at her, said in a low voice.

“You mean you’re going to dismiss the business relationship by all means?”

“What do you mean by that? Do you represent everyone here?”

Nadia glanced at the sly merchant standing on her right and laughed.

She implied that there were many merchants to trade besides him.
