Chapter 148 Inside Story Part 4
But that vow was broken immediately.
My mother died.
It was far too late when I got the medicine from Divan.
What shocked me was that I didn’t cry.
Most of my thoughts centered around how tragic all of this was.
My poor, pitiful mother.
When you’ve lost, all that remains is a lowly death.
I would never become what my mother was.
Although everything that had driven her out had already collapsed…
As a substitute, I would complete my mother’s original mission.
I didn’t have any attachments to this country, so I didn’t care what it became.

The children of nobility gathered together, living together.
Using this as an excuse, I grew close with nobility, practicing society before I could enter it.

Although I had thought about making good connections with more notable families…to me who had just entered the ranks of nobility from the world of peasants, it wasn’t as easy as that.
Well…despite that, I turned that on its head and used it, and ended up achieving my goals easily enough.
What I had learned from Divan was more useful than what I learned from the baron.
“…Something like that, it is whatever it is. Well, Divan, it’s your turn to shine, isn’t it? You’ll amuse me, right?”
Divan responded with a smile.
Seeing his smile, I smiled too.
