Young Lady.

Raine halted and looked in the direction of Alices voice.

Alice avoided her masters gaze and looked at her pajamas gown with a questioning gaze.

Raine followed her stare and saw her bloody stained garment, which she didn change to sleep after killing that assassin.

Ah.. I forgot, Raine murmured.

She also wondered how her brother slept with her dressed in this gown.

Raine cannot give Butler another poor heart attack by appearing in the dining hall in a bloody gown, especially in pajamas.

Should I call the maids for the bath, my lady? asked Alice.


I need to replace those maids, Raine considered as she walked toward the bathroom

What would you like to wear today, my lady?

Something simple, Raine answered, disappearing into the bathroom.

With a small-sized golden chandelier decorated with glowing stones as the source of light instead of the modern light bulb hanging from the ceiling, a white bathtub by the end of the spacious bathroom with two glass doors by each side, and a white sink with the golden stand at the right side, with an antique mirror at the left side.

So a bathroom like this does exist in the ancient era, Looking at the appearance of the bathroom, Raine peeled off her bloody stained gown from her eight-year-old body onto the floor and walked to the prepared rose bathing water in the bathtub.

A satisfied sigh came from her mouth as the screaming muscles in her body calmed down in the scented water.

Thanks to that, Raine experienced another emotion, an emotion of satisfaction.

She looked at the rose petals before bringing up her pale white hand from the fragrant water.

They do know how to take care of the skin in this era, Raine observed closely.

She wonders if those actresses and celebrities used this, in her era, to maintain their beauty?

Or plastic surgery? Raine wondered.

But…These hands need to be calloused if I want to gain my previous strength into this body, She murmured, staring at this beautiful skin.

Her previous body had scars, obviously, but she was careful not to damage her face.

Raine should also be careful since womens asset to marriage in this era is their body, face, and reputation.

Also, she did not want to attract any unwanted attraction by her behavior change or alert the Langston familys enemies.

Especially the Royal family that is watching the north like a hawk.

My lady, Alices worried voice sounded outside the closed door.

Come in, Raine stood up with her bodys pale white skin glistening with water.

She came out of the bathtub as a puddle had formed from the droplets of water from her body. Alice came in with a cotton bathrobe and wore her body with it as she stretched her hand to put on the sleeves.

After Alice tied the rope around her waist, Raine left the bathroom with her following behind. Then she proceeded to dress up for the meal.


Raine called out the middle-aged man with a white napkin folded on his bent arm, dressed in his white and black butler uniform. He walked towards her at her call.

Yes, Young Lady, He said with a warm smile different from the expression he showed that night.

Please chase out the maids except for my exclusive maid, Raine ordered, using the silver knife and fork to cut the steak on the silver plate.

She ate her steak with the fork and looked at the Butler with a blank gaze.

The Butler met her gaze and answered promptly, I-I see.

Everyone should leave except the young ladys exclusive maid, The Butler requested.

As the door closed, Raymond, Butler, Alice, and Raine remained in the room.

Raine took the plate of untouched steak and cut it into tiny pieces before pushing it to her brother, who sat beside her.

He nods with a slight blush before taking the fork bigger than his hand and eating his meal.

In the novel, the relationship between the villainess and her brother was not stated before he died, but judging by his behavior when he listened to Raine that night of his death without suspicions, it seems their relationship was close.

But its strange the villainess forgot quickly about her brothers death and became obsessed with the crown prince.

It should be the novels setting, Raine thought before moving her gaze to the Butler.

Wiping her mouth with the folded napkin and placing it on the table, Raine spoke, Butler, I didn say you should chase the maids out of this room alone.

The lady means…He widened his eyes in realization.

Yes… Out of my fathers castle She finished his words.


Butler should understand from my actions from yesterday, Raine stared at him.

Bring new maids, but not many of them into this mansion to prevent more spies. His eyes widened further, if thats possible, at Raines last word.

I am sure Father doesn know his employees are not serving him but others, She continued.

Raine turned to her side to see Raymonds plate empty before pushing her half-finished meal to him and turned to the Butler.

I will be in charge of this mansion until father comes back, and I won tolerate nobles or them looking down on the Grand dukes children, She looked straight into the Butlers eyes.

The Butler didn say anything and stared at Raine momentarily before bowing his head. As you wish, my lady.

…But young lady, the viscount…. The Butler rose his head and spoke cautiously. However, Raine did not allow him to finish his words and cut him off.

Butler, who is your master? She demanded.

The Grand duke, He answered without hesitation.

Who is the Viscount? She asked again.

He is a vassal, He replied again.

Who am I? Raine continued.

The Grand dukes first child, He answered.

Then, who is your master after the Grand duke? She asked the final question.

The young master and you, my lady, He answered without hesitation, again.

Then I expect the results of my orders in the future, Butler, Raine said with her first fake smile in this novel world.
