When I Quit Being A Wicked Mother-in-law, Everyone Became Obsessed With Me - Chapter 63
Anriche was worried a lot, but surprisingly, the two children seemed to be adjusting well to the academy.
In Liliana’s case, she was a little outgoing, although she didn’t seem to be fighting or struggling with anyone.
‘I think Lady Aberyt is the only girl in the swordsmanship class.’
‘Oh my gosh, is that so? There are no female students?’
‘Yes, the swordsmanship department is like that.’
The instructor, who nodded his head, continued to speak.
‘It is inevitable that other students find it difficult for female students… .. But right now, she tends to get along.’
After Anriche heard the answer, she was a little reassured. And, most of all, Elliot’s closeness to Liliana put her heart at ease.
“Oh, Elliot. Are you here?”
The two children were also known for being good friends at the academy as he was waiting for her swordsmanship class to finish, and returning together became a habit in the academy.
Also, since there was no student with big enough guts to argue with the fiancee, whom the Heir Apparent of Valois loved so openly.
So, there was a peaceful time for quite some time.
“I saw the swordsmanship seniors training today.”
“Oh really, did you?”
“Yes. As expected, they are seniors, how terrifying the action of swinging the sword was…”
Liliana has recently developed a habit of telling stories about what happened at the academy. Such a child’s expression was not as dark as when she was at the orphanage for the first time.
Anriche turned to Elliot.
“So, what about Elliot?”
“Me? I had nothing special…”
Saying so, Elliot, who had clouded the end of his words, opened his eyes roundly with an exclamation of ‘Ah.’
“Come to think of it, I met Lady Tornian today.”
Come to think of it, Lord Tornian had one younger sister, is it that girl?
However, what was the connection between the Lady and Elliot?
Anriche was a little bewildered. Meanwhile, Elliot clenched her chin and narrowed his eyes.
“I don’t like her.”
“Oh dear, why not?”
The first time Elliot met Lady Tornian, he was waiting for Liliana’s class to finish. Suddenly, a girl popped her head out and spoke to him.
‘Ah, Heir Apparent. You’re here!’
Who is it that he suddenly pretends to be so friendly? Above all, shouldn’t they introduce themselves first when they first meet?
Elliot, who was looking at the girl with a blank look, asked a question.
‘Who are you?’
‘Oh, my name is Anita Tornian!’
At the name Tornian, Elliot frowned involuntarily.
He thought she seemed to have a relationship with the boy that was Lady Londini’s fiancée, though Anita had no intention of letting him go.
‘But, what are you doing here, Heir Apparent?’
’Me? I am waiting for Liliana.’
‘Oh, why are you waiting for her?’
Anita shook her head and smiled softly at him.
‘Why don’t you go play with me instead?’
‘She’s not even a little kid, so Liliana can do go home alone.’
Anita suggested in a confident tone of hers. She looked confident that Elliot would never turn down her offer.
‘We can just ride the carriage?’
‘What? Though I found a coffee house that sells really good cakes…’
‘I don’t like it. I’m not going anywhere without Liliana.’
At those resolute words, Anita’s face twisted.
Nevertheless, Elliot had already lost his attention towards her. It was because, in the distance, light blonde hair fluttering like spring flowers came into view.
Liliana greeted Elliot running towards her with a bright face. Then, she opens her eyes wide, when she found Anita behind him.
‘Elliot, isn’t that Lady Tornian?’
‘Well, nothing to worry about.”
‘She’s been bothering me since before. I didn’t even look at her.’
At Elliot’s cold reply, Anita’s face flushed bright red. Either way, he pulled Liliana’s hand towards him.
‘Let’s go, Liliana.’
As Elliot recalled that time, he murmured in a hoarse voice as if his mood had gotten worse.
“…Well, that was it? So, she’s saying to just leave Liliana behind, can you believe that?”
“I see, but you can’t be so mean to a friend.”
Hearing that answer, Elliot gazed at his mother with a look that looked like he had been betrayed. At that moment, Anriche smiled broadly.
“Nevertheless, good job.”
No, didn’t she just say ‘you shouldn’t be mean to a friend’?

Because of that, Elliot looked up at his mother with a questionable face.
“The two of you will become a couple in the future, so you have to be on each other’s side unconditionally first.”
At those words, he asked Anriche with a proud expression.
“Right? I did well, right?”
“Well. Of course, I’m not recommending fighting with your friends, however…”
Hmmm, Anriche, who coughed in vain, clenched her fists tightly and continued, “If anyone in the future ignores Liliana like that, give them a shot. Okay?”
The two mother-and-son were very excited.
Liliana, who looked at the two of them, blushed her cheeks and smiled softly.
Afternoon with bright sunlight.
The students of the swordsmanship class, who had just finished training, were talking about the only female student who had recently arrived.
“Lady Aberyt, isn’t she better than you think?”
“That’s right. I thought it would be uncomfortable to be together, but it’s not like that.”
“I initially thought she was just an unusual kid…”
A slender girl who looks like she can’t even hold a single flower properly. At first, they said, ‘Well, what could a girl do?’
“Honestly, Lady Aberyt just came for a study visit, so there’s no need to participate in training all the time, right?”
“As men, we all get tired and we all go, though that kid always stayed until the end.”
“Yes, I was a little surprised.”
Since Liliana started her study visit, she has been training the same as the swordsman students. The students even bet on ‘how long Liliana can hold out and get out.’
“Besides, I actually thought she would have a pretty high nose as she was the fiancee of the Heir Apparent of Valois.”
“Isn’t she surprisingly easygoing?”
“Yeah, and she was very polite.”
The students, each nodding their heads, looked into each other’s eyes and smiled.
“She’s pretty good than I thought…”
However, it was then…
A ferocious voice interrupted the conversation.
It was Lord Tornian.
“You don’t even have eyes?”
“That, Peter. That’s…”
“I mean, do you really like it when a girl walks around the swordsmanship class?”
At that, Peter, or Lord Tornian, rolled his eyes and stared at the students. “I heard that a girl might be just like us, how can you be so casual?”
“Bu, but. It’s not illegal for a girl to attend a swordsmanship class…”
One student’s timid protest was completely ignored by Peter’s bloody voice.
“Damn, you bastards with no self-respect!”
The students looked into each other’s eyes and kept their mouths shut.
He was one of the most talented among the students of the swordsmanship class, and he was a student that the instructors also cared very much for. Rather than confront Peter and make things a nuisance, they opted to step back.
“Do you know what kind of girl she is? She used to be a maid in my fiancée’s orphanage!”
Peter clenched his teeth as he kept on going.
“Now that she’s the fiancée of the Heir Apparent of Valois, how insolent is it…!”
One of the students, who had heard Peter murmur, pointed behind him with a bewildered look. Meanwhile, Peter was very temperamental.
“What’s behind you!”
Peter’s face hardened as he looked back.
It was Liliana and Elliot were standing behind his back.
“Are you done talking?”
Elliot, who was glaring at Peter with ferocious eyes, tried to take a step forward.
“Why do you keep arguing with Liliana…!”
But Liliana grabbed his sleeve. As Elliot shrugged, he turned to her and said, “Liliana, why are you stopping me?! He’s insulting you now!”
The voice was strangely calm.
Elliot, who was so agitated, stopped and hardened his shoulder.
Liliana, biting her lip, spoke her words in a slightly shaky voice.
“I want to finish this.”
“What, what are you?”
When he heard that Liliana was coming out, Peter was a little relieved.
Not the Heir Apparent of Valois, but Liliana… Just step on that little girl and she would never be able to straighten her shoulders again.
‘Since the children and the Heir Apparent of Valois are gathered, it might be better to press her spirit here.’
