I obtained a stepmother. I obtained a little brother. It appears that little brother is not father's child, but a sc.u.m king's child, however, don't mind it please ( ´_ゝ`) – Ch. 6AoZora: Apparently, according to Shu, I’m pampering u guys. Lol, enjoy ur new chapter. Pfft
Shu: AoZora working her slave editor to the fullest. T^T
Even after Ellen asked Natasha, she did not quite understand what a mother was.
She had only learned that Liana was not a normal mother, but a stepmother.
After that, she asked many people what a stepmother was but the answers she received were similar to the ones she heard from Natasha.
It seemed stepmothers were people who indulged in luxury, bullied their stepchildren and adored their own children.
Liana became her stepmother due to certain circ.u.mstances, so she might be different from ordinary stepmothers but at the same time, she might also become the stepmothers from the stories.
However, from her father's story, Liana was a poor girl who was a.s.saulted by that perverted d.a.m.n old geezer. She also had a hard time taking care of her younger brother and nursing her mother, so Ellen believed that she should be allowed to live in a little bit of luxury.
Besides, it was normal to love their own child and if the bullying went too far, Will or Saaya would step in to do something about it. Plus, it seemed like from Natasha's story, if she endured the bullying, she would be happy in the end.
「Well, like the butcher jii-san (TL: grandpa, elderly man) said, you have to experience it to know it. (°▽°)」
Tom-jiisan, the butcher, had once served in the royal capital and experienced a lot of harsh bullying. He had told his stories to Ellen and the other children, and that only by going through those experiences, he had became who he was today.
In the end, Ellen still had not quite understand what a mother was, but she did at least requested Johann, the skilled butler of Theodore's family, to let Liana indulge in luxury if she wished for it.
It was not an exaggeration to say that Johann had a tight grip on the Theodore family's wealth instead of Will, the sick head of the house.
Johann had served the Theodore family since the generation of Will's father and Will was no match for him.
Johann was close to 70 years old but he was still full of life. He was very strict towards Will but he was unusually kind towards Ellen.
Johann bitterly smiled but acknowledged Ellen's request.
Ellen chuckled to herself as she could welcome Liana peacefully with this.
In the end, Ellen still did not change the idea of 「Stepmother = Ultimate Happiness」 in her mind and spent her days looking forward to the arrival of her stepmother.
