After having caused too much trouble, my living space was separated from that of my stepmother and stepsister.
I began to eat my meals alone every day.

If my new mother had given me a gentle smile like how she treated my sister just once, I might not be doing what I am doing right now.


“Darius is a strong chap, ain’t he?”


“The fields were revived in a jiffy.”


“I would take him home as my husband if I was ten years younger, haha.”


“…No, even if it was ten years ago, you were already in your 60s…”


“Whatcha talkin’ ’bout.
We’re still burstin’ with youth and vigor in our 60s…”


“Youth and vigor eh?”




There is no way that being Darius in this village, where I can’t even get new underwear, is more fun than being Robert of the ducal house.

There’s absolutely no way…

End of Robert’s POV



“Speaking of which, I wonder why everyone is seething with this much anger…”


Emma asked while tilting her head, puzzled.

A huge loss from cotton, House Stuart’s absence during the social season, the “Fake Holy Maiden” Emma.

Besides the matter regarding cotton, the others were none of their business.
Even if the nobles lost a lot of money, they wouldn’t fall that deep into poverty to the point of not being able to afford bread because they received a regular tax revenue from their territories.
The ones who deserved to be angry were the fief citizens whose tax burden might increase because of their lord’s stupidity.


“It’s most likely because everyone cannot make new underwear… you know?” Arthur responded to Emma’s puzzled look with a similarly puzzled face.

Marion, Francesca, and the twins also looked at Emma in the same manner as Arthur.


“Making new underwear?” Hoping for a detailed explanation for this inexplicable matter, William prompted.


“It was the Church’s doctrine, right? Negative energy accumulates easier on underwear.
So to return to God’s side, you should make new underwear once a year after the social season.
Hemp is too shabby for underwear material, while silk is too luxurious.
Cotton is the most appropriate.”
