A Stepmother’s Marchen - Chapter 11
“You trained early, didn’t you? My brother was the same when he was young. You must be hungry, so hurry up and go eat breakfast,” Jeremy obediently accepted his aunt’s greetings, glanced at me and then walked ahead.
I was left with Lucretia , who was smiling brightly, “Madam, aren’t you going to eat?”
“No, I’m not…”
I usually ate separately after my husband died. As soon as I sat down at the table, the children started to fight, so imagine eating a meal surrounded by twins who never stopped complaining about the weird smell and couldn’t let me eat peacefully. It was hard to tell whether the food would fall into my nose or mouth.
…..Eh, such a fate. Wouldn’t it be better to give up everything and try to live my life comfortably?
“I just have something to tell you. It’s about the kids.”
While having breakfast with her, she said something that made me surprised.
Lucretia was smiling as if she had expected such a reaction.
“Yes, for the twins.”
“The twins have a tutor that teaches them all the subjects…”
“I know that. What I’m talking about is a special teacher for debut. Especially for Rachel, she’s already 10.”
Aha, she was talking about that.
Most people hire a teacher to prepare the children for their social debut when they reach 12 years old.
In some cases, it was earlier than that. But in the past, I invited such a teacher after Rachel passed her 12th birthday. Rachel is still young, she is only 10 years old.
“It’s still a little too early.”
“Usually, they start around the age of twelve. But as their aunt, I’m worried that the longer the time goes by, the harder it will be to correct their way. Rachel is lovely to me, but she won’t look like that to anyone else,” Lucretia, who spoke softly, blinked her wide eyes.
I have nothing to say. The fact that once the twins started to play around, the place would turn upsidedown was a fact that couldn’t be denied…
To be honest, Rachel was the one who took the initiative among the twins. Speaking of Leon, he just followed whatever his twin sister did, rather than leading.
Fortunately, Leon stopped playing like a child after reaching a certain age, but Rachel didn’t make any progress until her debut in society.
If the country hadn’t have a public enemy, Rachel would have been quite stigmatized as a hateful child in society.
Yeah, I played the villain for my daughter…! Let’s just say I did that.
“That makes sense. Do you have anyone to recommend?”
“Of course, I recommend Madame Luazel, who is famous in the field. Fortunately, she’s close to me, so I’m sure she’ll be happy to respond.”
Looking at lucretia, who seemed to be waiting for my respond, I was temporarily in distress.
Rachel’s special teacher, whom I invited in the past, was my husband’s best friend’s wife, Countess of Bavaria. I remember she was a pretty quite gentle person.
Madame Luazel, I’ve heard of her name, but I don’t know what kind of person she is.
Does it matter if I left everything to her? Well, the teacher is worth it if she is that famous. Besides, what Lucretia said makes sense. Anyway, I might give up sooner or later, so what’s wrong with having one teacher earlier?
At worst, she’ll just colude with Lucrezia and drives a wedge between the kids and me.
I accepted with an indifferent and cold expression, and from the very next day Madame Luazel regularly visited the Marquis.
