I Became the Black Swan Mother of the White Swan Princess - Chapter 29
“…And I can’t really remember any of them….”
“Wouldn’t he have gone back to his entourage when Duke Evendell was injured? Or a knight, or maybe…”
Tennon, pondering this, looked at Rashid. However, Rashid was calm and wouldn’t reveal his emotions that easily.
“Send a letter to the Duke right now.”
“Okay, I’ll have him do that and deliver it to the Ducal House of Evendell.”
“Peyton, what have you heard so far?”
Annoyed, Rashid, who was leaning his head against his desk, looked up.
“It’s hard to get to her there.”
Rashid picked up something that was on the table.
A small, pointed piece of wood.
Doubts, uncertainty, and an unknown desire for victory were mixed in Peyton’s master’s bloodshot eyes.
“The dukedom’s deepest, most remote area where one can enter and exit only by burying things like this.”
The baby swan’s eyes were a little teary.
I couldn’t resist and hug Haniel because she had slept well for once.
“Baby, are you up?”
Yes, this is it!
It would still be cozier even if I took dreamlike clouds from the sky and hugged them.
The best thing about Haniel after I decided to adopt her was that I didn’t have to hesitate anymore when I wanted to hug her.
As I closed my eyes and rubbed my cheeks violently against Haniel’s, Haniel burst into laughter, perhaps tickled.
“Isn’t it ticklish?”
I’ve always wanted to say this.
I endured the feeling of seeing her tears long enough.
Nonetheless, my thrill didn’t last long because of someone who was overly realistic.
“Madame, I shouldn’t say this, but it seems like you’ve only been having fun today.”
“Then you shouldn’t have said it.”
“Oh, I’ve been up all night thinking about it; I’m not sure I’m suitable for this.”
The dark purple circles under Selene’s eyes came down to her chin, perhaps because she had stayed up the entire night.
Still, Haniel didn’t run away and was still attached to Selene, so Selene accepted that she was already on the same boat as me.
“Don’t give up as well I think Haniel’s already adjusted.”
“Oh, my God.”
“Madam, if you cry here, I’ll run away.”
This is such a touching moment.
However, as Selene said, it was difficult for me, the mother, and Haniel, the daughter, to get through this harsh world together.
This meant that balance was also necessary.
“You know, Selene….”
“Just in case, please refrain from saying that the only person you can trust is a nanny and that I’ve delivered her out with all my heart.”
“Anyway, isn’t it really amazing? Haniel didn’t say anything when I was a human being. But how do you recognize me?”
I carefully laid down Haniel, whom I was holding to regain my reason somehow.
If you’re too much of a babysitter, it could be too much for the nanny. Now, I had to consider everyone’s positions, not just mine.
Why? A good mother has to set an example for her baby!
“Haniel, tell me. How did you know I was your mom when I turned like this?”
“I can smell my mom!”
Look at this! Look at the people of the lake, our Princess.
I took off everything and hugged Haniel again.
Did you hear this? You heard it! You heard it!
They were speechless and gasping at Selene, who now showed a grim face, saying, “There’s nothing more to be surprised about.”
“There is no problem. I need to make plans for her future first.”
“Kyak, kyak, kyak!”
“If you had a baby like this, wouldn’t you have no plans?”
“Well, that can’t be.”
That said, Selene was about to peck my beak this time.
Now that I see it, she is more of a sister-in-law, not a nanny.
But what she said was wrong.
Raising a child only with love is absurd in any world. Isn’t Haniel a precious young lady who is the current princess and daughter of the late Emperor? I cannot neglect Haniel’s early education.
“…I’ll have to let her go to school first.”
“School? You mean Lady Melloe’s school of etiquette?”
“Where else could it be? I’m torn, but I can’t help it. Though Lady Melloe is strict, no one is as cultured as her in the lake.”
I didn’t like it, but I had no choice but to teach her what I didn’t know right away.
