Being ignored over and over again, I kept asking, “Hey, I’m confused by this word, is it ‘cooperation’ or ‘give up’……”

It was then.

The boy who got up at once disappeared through the bookshelves and then reappeared.

He was carrying a book that was at least twice as thick as the one he was reading.

Anita’s complexion turned pale.

‘Are you trying to hit me with that book? Did I bother you that much?’


The boy put the thick book down in front of Anita.

“If you don’t know, keep your mouth shut and read it.”

Anita swallowed dry saliva and checked the title of the book.

《Quils Dictionary》

He must have been bothered that Anita was asking too many questions.
She carefully hugged the dictionary the boy had given her.


“And don’t keep talking to me.
It’s annoying.”


I sat quietly and read the dictionary he recommended.

After finding the meaning of the confusing word, I couldn’t overcome the boredom and repeatedly nodded off and woke up.

‘I can’t.
It’s late, so I have to go back to my father.’

But this dictionary is good.

The dictionary in my house is written with difficult words that are difficult to understand, but the words in this dictionary can be understood without needing to look for other meanings.

“Can I……”

I was going to ask if I can borrow this.

[And don’t keep talking to me.
It’s annoying.]

I couldn’t open my mouth at the sharp warning.


Huh, but I really want to ask.

“I, this……”


At that moment, the boy with his tired face turned to look at her.

I wonder how annoying I am right now.
You probably don’t want to see me, do you? When I imagined it, I felt guilty.

Anita whispered in the lowest voice she could make.

“Can I borrow this?”

“How are you going to carry that?”

“I can carry it.”

“You can’t.”

It was such a firm denial.

“I, I can carry it!”

“You can’t.”

I can carry it!”

Anita held the Quils language dictionary in her arms.

Ugh, it’s really heavy.

“See? You can carry it?”

It was much heavier than I thought, it was difficult for me to breathe, but it seemed that I could carry it and go down.

The boy glanced at Anita with displeased eyes and looked back at the book.

“If you can’t return it within a month, I will report it as theft.”

It was a goodbye.
However, Anita couldn’t move and asked awkwardly, “You……aren’t you going to ask my name?”

As he turned his head with a confused expression, as if making an excuse, Anita revealed the reason.

“You have to know my name to report it as a theft.
I am Anita Völlen.”

I thought I would be ignored again, but surprisingly the boy said his name.

“Lancelot Edenbair.”


‘Edenbair…… He was the child living in this house.’

Come to think of it, there was nothing surprising.

Because only the owner of the house can enter this library with indoor clothes.

Anita left the library.
She hesitated whether to say goodbye or not, but in the end, she didn’t.




The moon was covered in clouds and night has come.

Anita took her father’s hand and got into the carriage returning home.

He’s always a decent father anytime, anywhere.
Her father asked, reeking of alcohol and ruffled her hair, “Did you get along well with your friends?”



“Did you have fun?”


I had fun.”

“We’ll see them often in the future.
Don’t make any mistake and get along well.”

I felt a little better at the fact that I was going home, but I became depressed in an instant.

I don’t want to see them again.

Even though I made no mistakes, they shunned me.

There was only one child in that lovely mansion who did not shun me.

‘He will despise me when he finds out that I am not a noble.’

When I thought about it, I felt more depressed.

‘It’s okay.
Because I have my father, my nanny, Mary, and Berry.’

It’s really okay.
I don’t need anyone else.
I’m happy enough for now.

Anita let out a long sigh.
