A Stepmother’s Marchen - Chapter 67
Humans are said to be adaptable animals. I don’t know who said it, but I couldn’t help but admire their deep insight.
I’m Shuri von Neuwanstein. This is my third year since returning to the past. It seems that I have become too accustomed to this reality that is similar to the past I remember but is different. If it wasn’t for that, there would be no way I could have been pondering or thinking about how time went by so quickly again.
“Happy 19th birthday, Madam!”
“Happy last teenage birthday, mom!”
Yes, I am nineteen today. I can’t believe the fact that I have memories of up to the age of 23.
Anyway, let’s say that our faithful knights and employees sang together in the morning as if they were going to break down the mansion. The sight of the twins, who have grown taller, holding a five-tiered cake large enough to be used in a wedding ceremony, was truly touching.
“Wow, birthday cakes are the best!”
“Argh! Little hyung, what are you doing?! We have to keep it until evening!”
“You really don’t have any dignity.”
Let’s just pretend not to see Elias, who is trying to touch the white giant cake that was made with the heart and soul of the chefs and kitchen maids who must have struggled since dawn to make it.
I managed to say thank you while Rachel’s palms patted Elias on the back mercilessly.
If I were to be more specific about the emotion I’m feeling right now, tears would pour out! I’ve been feeling restless because I’ve been dreaming about the past these days, but now I feel so proud of them!
“Happy birthday, mom! I’ll give you a present at dinner!” My lovely daughter said that with her eyes shining as if to look forward to my reaction.
“Wow, all the presents the kids prepared are here. In this…….”
“Little hyung, you’re not going to give mom another terrible doll like last year, are you?”
“What terrible doll?! It’s so precious. You are a short-legged ignorant of the world!”
Was a rabbit doll as big as him such a precious thing? At this time last year, a groan came out of my mouth as I remembered the rabbit doll Elias carried on his back. Well, it’s pretty soft and fluffy, so it’s nice to cuddle when I sleep, but think about my age.…!
“Why am I short-legged?” How much do you…….”
“Because I’m short-legged, I’m short-legged! It’s still 10 years away for you to become the owner of legs as long as me, this… … Shut up!”
“You have short legs, so you are short-legged! It will take you ten years to get long legs like mine, .… Ouch!”
He got hit.
Elias, who had been beaten hard without any reason, began to jump, which was natural. A ridicule of accusation hung around Leon’s lips.
“Ouch… … Ah, why are you beating me and yelling at me all morning?!”
“Who told you to stand in my way like that?”
Jeremy, who cleverly hit him because he wanted to, now sat down at the table shaking his golden hair with his hands. Then he smiled at me in the opposite seat, “How does it feel to be nineteen?”
“Well, I won’t tell you.”
“Oh, you’re so cold-hearted. That cake, by the way, is big enough to be buried in. What do you think?”
What does he mean?
Before I could finally figure it, Jeremy approached my way with his emerald eyes twinkling wickedly!
“Argh! What are you doing? Ah! Don’t! Don’t! Don’t!”
“Hahaha! How could hung do such a thing?”
“Ah, how come even oppa is like this?! this is for dinner!”
Ignoring me and Rachel, Jeremy lifted me up with one arm and threw me over the giant cake! Oh, my God!
In the meantime, it would have been better to just pretend we didn’t see the light of the conflict that was truly indescribable on the faces of our loyal knights. After all, how can they stop this ferocious lion?
“Oh, my God, you damn thing……!”
Jeremy and Elias only giggled their stomachs while I couldn’t swallow half the sweet lump in my mouth and spit it out without dignity. Even Leon was trying to hold back his laughter. My daughter is the only one who has common sense!
Jeremy and Elias held onto their stomachs and laughed while I, who was covered in cream, swallowed half the sweet lump in my mouth and spat it out without dignity. Even Leon was trying to hold back his laughter. My daughter is the only one who has common sense!
“You guys are so mean!”
“Why? Do you want me to do the same to you?”
“Argh! Stop it!”
“You guys are so funny, huh?”
The cream I threw with all my might hit Jeremy on the shoulder. And it goes without saying that it was the starting point.
Eventually, our loyal chef and kitchen maid’s blood-sweating five-tier special cake turned into a game for our snowball fight. All four children and I were covered in cream, and as we fought the battle, our servants were literally on the verge of dying.
It took longer to bathe than usual to cleanse the cream that covered my hair. The look in Gwen’s eyes as she licked her tongue and combed my hair felt a bit harsh. Whoops, I never expected that I would end up doing such a childish thing… … .
By the time I was standing in front of the mirror alone after finishing my makeup and examining the sky blue dress I was wearing to go out, a knock sounded. So I shouted without turning my head, “Why don’t you just admit defeat?”
“Who said that? If you’re a winner, you should take the spoils.”
The spoils? I wondered what kind of prank this was, and as I looked to the open door with my eyes narrowed, I was mesmerized at the next moment.
