When I Quit Being A Wicked Mother-in-law, Everyone Became Obsessed With Me - Chapter 62
Lord Tornian had a very angry expression. However, when the Heir Apparent of Valois came out like that, he didn’t even have the courage to say, ‘I won’t greet her.’
“…Greetings, Lady Aberyt.”
Staring at Lord Tornian, who bowed his head gently, she blinked blankly in her eyes.
‘Wow, he’s really greeting me?’
This Lord Tornian…?
Wasn’t he the boy who got along so well with his fiancée and was holding Liliana like a mouse? In the past, when she just stood in front of Lord Tornian, her whole body was so frozen that she couldn’t move.
‘…I don’t think he’s that scary now.’
Maybe, it’s because Elliot was by her side…
Liliana squeezed her clasped hand.
At the same time, Lord Tornian opened his mouth with a grin.
“So, did the Heir Apparent come to visit the swordsmanship class?”
“No, not me, but Liliana.”
As if hearing a nonsensical thing, Lord Tornian widened his eyes. Then, Elliot asked, narrowing his brow.
“Why, can not?”
“But Liliana is a girl, and she probably lacks the physical abilities…”
At that, Elliot crossed his arms and said bitterly. “Why did you say that, Tornian? Very presumptuous.”
“Heir Apparent, you crossed the line! That’s a bit harsh!”
An angry Lord Tornian raised his voice.
Then, Elliot asked a question out of the blue.
“Can you fight and win against the deputy commander of Valois?”
“No, there’s no way I can do that. Valois is the best knight family in the Empire…!”
“Why not? Our deputy commander-in-chief, as you said, is a woman who lacks physical abilities.”
Looking at the speechless Lord Tornian, Elliot made a really surprised expression and asked. “You can’t beat even a weak woman?”
“Are you very incompetent?”
At the words that stabbed him in the right direction, Lord Tornian bit his teeth.
Looking at him, Elliot folded his eyes beautifully.
“This isn’t too much, it’s telling the truth. Don’t you think so?”
Then, he added a sarcastic comment, “If you’re going to talk about Liliana, I’d like you to first defeat our deputy commander.”
Just in time, Anriche and Alexei arrived at the children’s place.
Watching Elliot drive Lord Tornian with his flamboyant verbal skills, Anriche opened her eyes wide.
‘Wow, my son…’
Because of Anriche’s cold attitude in the original story every time, she only saw his discouraged appearance, so she didn’t know it.
“He looks like me without losing a single word, right?”
Apparently, Alexei had the same thought.
“I think Elliot resembles you a lot more than I do.”
When she saw him spit out words of admiration like that…
Anriche only let out a shy laugh.
At that time, Elliot made a confirmed kill.
“Besides, Liliana is a child my father personally accepted as his disciple.”
“Duke, Duke Valois’ disciple? Liliana…?!”
Lord Tornian, who jumped up from the spot, pointed at Liliana.
The Duke of Valois was a very special existence to the knights. The Emperor’s sharpest sword, the Empire’s greatest knight. All aspiring knights repeatedly train with the goal of becoming the Duke of Valois.
But, Liliana, whom he had treated worse than dust, was Duke Valois’ disciple?!
Elliot looked as if he was also Alexei’s disciple, and he proudly nodded his head.
“My father said, ignoring Liliana is ignoring father’s eyes.”
“So, be careful from now on. And…”
Elliot retorted sharply at his face.
“Who do you dare point your finger at?”
Of course, Lord Tornian was surprised and folded his index finger.
After the tour, Anriche and her party stopped by the Academy Headquarters to schedule a regular tour for Liliana.
It was decided that Liliana would attend the swordsmanship training three times a week, and Elliott would tour the arts club.
When she thought she had finished all the schedule…
“I would like to formally raise an issue with the swordsmanship instructor. What is the procedure?”
Waiting for Anriche to go through the children’s tour procedures, Alexei opened his mouth.
Anriche, surprised, asked him a question.
“Are you really going to protest?”
“Of course. Hasn’t he been rude to Madam and Liliana?”
Seeing Alexei, who was straightforward like that, Anriche became a little shy. She said to the instructor earlier, ‘I’m going to raise the problem,’ and she made a fuss, but…

‘Anyway, the tour ended safely, so I was just going to let it go.’
It felt like Alexei was strangely caring for her and Liliana. Was this her own misunderstanding?
Anriche glanced at him from the side.
Alexei, who felt her gaze, asked his wife with a puzzled face.
“Is there anything?”
In the end, She decided to simply accept his consideration with gratitude. So, after finishing all the itinerary, she got in the carriage back to the townhouse of Valois.
Liliana was pouring out her impressions of today’s tour with an excited look on her face.
“Everyone seemed to be really good at it. It was really cool.”
At that moment, Elliot, who had been holding his chin, suddenly opened his mouth.
“I thought Liliana was stronger than them.”
Hearing the words, Liliana’s face turned red.
“Why do you think so? Huh?”
Being with Elliot over and over again seemed to have made her feel better at his praise.
Meanwhile, Anriche smiled and asked Liliana, “More than that, how was the tour today? Do you think it will be of any help?”
“Yes! Thank you so much for creating this opportunity!”
Liliana answered, clasping her hands tightly.
“I’ll study hard!”
“It’s good to be motivated, but don’t overdo it. Okay?”
Liliana nodded her head eagerly.
At that moment, Elliot stuck her head out and interrupted the conversation. “Don’t study too much, and make sure you make time playing with me.”
“You’re busy with sword training and homework these days, so you don’t play with me at all, right?”
Elliot added his words with a sullen face. Seeing so, Anriche gave him a nag in a mischievous voice.
“Elliot should be like Liliana, so why don’t you do your homework?”
Elliot gazed at his mother with a grim expression on his face.
“Why, what’s wrong with what I said?”
“Mom tells me to just study every day! But not to Liliana, right?”
“That’s right, Liliana, she’s good at homework, and she’s good at preparing and reviewing on her own.”
As Alexei watched the two chatter, he burst into laughter without realizing it.
“Oh, no. You should listen to your mother, Elliot.”
Then, Elliot opened his eyes wide and glanced at his father..
“I’ve never seen Dad laugh out loud like that.”
Was he a person who didn’t laugh so well?
Alexei looked at his son with a warm expression on his face. As soon as his father’s eyes met his, Elliot smiled brightly.
“I hope you can smile like that more often in the future.”
“I wish you could, too.”
Anriche, who had been listening to the conversation between the two father and son, agreed with Elliot’s words.
He then unknowingly looked at her.
‘My family has become so harmonious…’
Isn’t it because of Anriche?
This change was very surprising. He used to think that he would have to live his whole life with this dry marriage…
“I’ll try my best.”
Alexei nodded his head with a faint smile.
He sincerely hoped that such a warm time would continue.
And so, Liliana and Elliott were assigned to the Imperial Academy.
They each belonged to the swordsmanship club and the arts club.
Anriche, who was worried about the two children’s academy life, suggested that she go with them, even if only until they got used to it…
“I appreciate your suggestion, but I’m fine.”
“I don’t want to give the impression that I’m special to other children.”
“Well, actually, no kids go to the academy with their parents…”
Elliot shrugged his shoulders and accepted Liliana’s words.
Anyway, if Anriche would take the children to school every day… it looked like she would stand out as it is.
In the end, she narrowed her brow and gave her children a request.
“Then, if you’re having a hard time, you have to tell me. Okay?”
“Yes, of course!”
Liliana nodded her head vigorously, and Elliot replied that he understood.
Thus, the two children’s academy life began.
