I Became the Black Swan Mother of the White Swan Princess - Chapter 41
I had to send a warning in Selene’s direction so that the situation would come to an end.
Anyhow, our pretty little angel Haniel had become an educated cygnet. I patted her cute little butt as she was commendable.
“I see. Our Haniel endured well despite being scared. But the nanny in the palace really did that to you?”
[Yes. Like dis, she did dis!]
Haniel tried her best, swatting her wing violently. Though it was not even a ticklish wind, it left an impression on me.
“…Wait, what else did the nanny do to you?”
[She said not to call her, she tired. I kan’t say I’m hungry, and I kan’t open my eyes too.]
T/N: The words are misspelled on purpose.
That bitch is really-
As I suppressed my anger, I forced a smile at Haniel.
I was suddenly reminded that I usually look like a glamorous serious older sister, and such an expression might scare the child, but Haniel had no qualms about it.
[Mommyy! Haniel’s mommyy!]
Instead, Haniel hugged me, as if assuring me that I am her mother.
I had wondered why she was so obsessed with her mother, but now I understood that she had no one showering affection on her.
In that huge palace, amongst the countless servants and even with her numerous brothers…
I stopped and raised my eyebrows when my thoughts reached her brothers.
“Baby, why didn’t you tell your brothers? You should have told your eldest brother first. He is the most powerful.”
“B, brother scarier. Brother Rashid’s doggie bites Haniel! Sob sob.]
“D, don’t cry. You don’t have to answer.”
Haniel started sobbing into her dress after imitating the people from the palace.
True, since I am now trying to run away because her brother was too scary.
It was no different than Selene, who asked why I could not retort back in confidence.
“What about your brother?”
[Doggie bite! Bite Haniel! And he ordered it!]
It was not even a family arcade.
It was tougher to understand Haniel’s words while she was sniffling and agitated on top of her unclear pronunciation.
I needed to at least grab the gist of it to try to understand what she was saying.
Just then, Selene, who blew her nose boisterously, used the hem of my dress to wipe away her tears.
[Sob, so that’s what happened. So your oldest brother, His Majesty, brought the massive dog to you? He ordered the dog to bite you?]
[Yeahh. Not bite. Go to me.]
[Ah, he didn’t order it to bite you, but called it to go near you. Oh my.]
[Yeah! Dat’s right!]
[Great! Nanny great!]
I blinked my eyes as I watched both of them cheer each other up before me.
Even after using my dress without consent to wipe her own mucus, Selene looked up at me as if seeking my agreement.
[Your Ladyship must think that His Majesty overdid it, right? How could he do this to such a young child?]
“Yeah, I know, right?”
Though I was not entirely sure what she had meant, I was certain that ‘His Majesty overdid it.’
Of course, anyone who had seen him at least once, would know that too.
I blindly nodded along, as if I understood their conversation. I had to save my pride as a mother.
[Don’t gib me. They don’t gib me food. They toot it all way!]
[Ah, really? How upset you must have been if the maids took away all your food, Your Highness.]
Since when did Selene have such a talent for this.
I felt relieved to see them getting along so well and awkward that I started rubbing my cheeks.
Haniel is my daughter. Haniel is mine!
I brought her back here!
I never thought that I would become this childish when I was always exhausted and struggling to make ends meet.
I could not imagine sending Haniel away in the future to the neighboring country’s prince.
My heart wrenched at the future event.
[Mommy, will Haniel not go to skool den?]
We were talking about that earlier.
I quickly snapped back after looking at Haniel with complicated feelings. We might have sidetracked, but now, survival was more important than education.
“Sorry, Haniel. I’ll send you to school when we go to a new lake. You’ll meet new friends there too.”
I was afraid that she would start sobbing, but my princess seemed to be braver than I thought.
Instead, she spread her wings out wide and wrapped them around my hands.
[Haniel knows everything!]
[The palace nanny said Haniel kan’t go to skool! She said Haniel is a crybaby, and is a naughty baby who doesn’t listen to others well, and that I don’t hab any friends!]
Let’s go to school!
I will definitely send you to school!
Since there’s a previous life, there’d be a next life!
[Madam, let’s send her to school!]
