When I Quit Being A Wicked Mother-in-law, Everyone Became Obsessed With Me - Chapter 10
Translator and Editor: Effe and Nabi
“Yes, while I brought one for Liliana, so I brought yours together.”
In response, Anriche offered Elliot a cup of cocoa.
Elliot, who was wondering whether he would receive the cup or not, glanced at Meg’s eyes.
Meg nodded her head slightly to signal he could accept it.
Only after that, Elliott grabbed the cocoa cup with both hands and crawled into the blanket.
Anriche could not hide her subtle expression.
‘Wait, what have I just seen?’
‘I think Elliot thinks I’m not his mother, but Meg is.’
It was true that Anriche treated Elliot coldly before possessing this body.
But that being said, it doesn’t seem normal to put the nanny in front of his mother and ask the nanny for permission.
She thought vaguely ‘because she was hurt by the appearance of a mother who bothers her son…’
Anriche, who had thought that far ahead, shook her head in an effort.
‘No, I could be speculating too much.’
Wasn’t Meg the one who carefully cared for Elliot instead of Anriche?
Let’s not make useless doubts. Because of what happened with the maids earlier, she thinks she has become too nervous.
Anriche spoke to Elliott with a smile.
“Mom is going to sleep with Liliana today. Does Elliot want to sleep with us…”
“I don’t want to.”
Anriche smiled bitterly at the quick response. Well, she wasn’t expecting such a reaction at all.
“Yes, if you don’t want to, you don’t need to.”
At the moment, Elliot’s eyes were round.
His mother retreats so gently?
However, Anriche only continued with her steps toward the door.
She didn’t get angry or irritated at him.
“Well, I’ll have to go. Sweet dreams, Elliot.”
Elliot nodded his head with a puzzled look. Anriche, who smiled back, walked out of the door slowly.
Click. The door is closed. With his blank face, Elliot looked back at what had just happened.
‘…Mother, you weren’t angry with me.’
Usually, Anriche hoped that her words would have an absolute influence on everyone, including the Duke.
It is a temper that does not tolerate rejection.
Though now, despite Elliot’s rejection to his mother’s offer, she continued to have a gentle face.
‘If you look at it, she’s been doing that today. She didn’t raise her voice.’
Elliot, who had been contemplating for a while, looked back at Meg, who was preparing the bedding.
“You know, Meg.”
“Today’s mother… doesn’t she seem very kind?”
As soon as she heard the question, Meg’s bustling gesture suddenly stopped.
Elliot began to speak little by little.
“Even when I met her during the daytime, she wasn’t angry. Besides, she brought me cocoa…”
Elliott blinked his eyes.
Meg sits right next to Elliott and squeezes the child’s shoulders softly.
“Of course, it’s true that the Madam decided so much today. I was also surprised.”
“Is that so? Does Meg also feel that way?” Elliott asked in excitement.
At the same time, Meg sighed.
“But, young master, think about the attitude that the Madam usually treats you with.”
“…Her attitude toward me?”
“Yes, the Madam always bothered you, right?”
Elliot’s face blurred like a cloudy sky.
Toward Elliot, Meg shook her head with sad eyes.
“Now, for some reason, she treats you kindly, but you don’t know how long this affection will last.”
“Is that so?”
“I, at least, think so.” Meg held Elliott’s hand tightly.
Meg’s eyes, looking at Elliott, was full of love.
“Well, I’m afraid that you might get hurt.”
“Though don’t worry too much, I’ll always be there with you.”
“Yes, thank you.”
Elliot nodded his head a little bit.
‘Yes, you should.’ A satisfying smile struck over Meg’s lips.
“By the way, Meg, you know that kid.”
“Yes, that… Did you say it was Liliana Aberyt?”
The name touched the tip of his tongue sweetly like candy.
A girl with blonde hair that looks like a cloud and light green eyes like a sprout.
Elliott’s cheeks were dyed brightly like a ripe apple.
“I… I think I’ve never seen such a pretty girl.”
Over Meg’s eyes, a faint warning stood.
She would be like that because it was the first time that Elliot showed new interests other than ‘Dad’ and ‘Meg.’
Elliott, who hesitated for a while, carefully opened his mouth.
“She said she was my fiancée.”
“Well, that should be.”
That’s right, although it’s a shameful lady of the fallen Count family.
Meg barely swallowed a grumpy answer that squeezed all the way to her throat.
Elliot looked up at Meg with his eyes twinkling like stars.
“Then, I… am I marrying her later?”
“Well…” Meg, who was roughly obscuring her words, glanced into Elliot’s eyes.
“Rather, do you like Miss Liliana so much?”
“Yes, I like her.”
At the answer without hesitation, Meg’s face hardened.
This is a bit dangerous.
Because the more people Elliot likes, the less influence his ‘friendly nanny’ can exert.
‘I’m afraid of this, so I deliberately tried to prevent the girl from entering the Duchy.’ Meg gently bit her lip.
If his fiancée needlessly attracts Elliot’s attention, there’s nothing worse than this.
‘No, what on earth did Baron Londini do?’
Shouldn’t they have to stop her from bringing Liliana in?
Meg, who suppressed the rising irritation, smiled brightly at Elliott.
“You haven’t even spoken a few words with her?”
“Although I haven’t, she still looked very nice. And, and…”
Elliot, who had blurred his words, leaned his head down as not to show his shy expression.
“…I’ve never seen such a pretty girl.”
Meg was grateful that Elliot was bowing his head.
If it hadn’t been, he would have found a terrible look.
After a while, Meg created a voice that was as gentle as possible and opened her mouth.
“In fact, I was worried that the master might be disappointed.”
“You know, it’s like this, but the Madam has been neglecting the young master until now.” Meg glanced sideways at Elliott.
“On the contrary, Madam, with that girl, is very kind, right?”
“Yes! So, I wondered if the young master was in pain when he saw them…”
However, Elliott just faced Meg with a confused face.
“Huh? Why would my heart hurt?”
“Well, that’s it. It’s no different from taking away the affection of your mother…”
“Well, no. I don’t think that’s it.”
Elliot narrowed his eyebrows and shook his head.
“Just because she is cold to me, there’s no law that you have to treat other people the same way.”
“But still, aren’t you sad?”
“Of course, I feel sad. It would be better if my mother was kind to me as well.”
Elliot, who seemed to be worried for a moment, smiled lightly.
“But that doesn’t mean I want mother to behave badly with Liliana.”
“…I see.” Meg barely created something like a smile.
Elliot nodded his head hard, speaking in a clear tone.
“Yes! That’s why I mean, Liliana was…”
After talking about it for a while.
Meg raised herself up.
“It’s too late, so let’s sleep today. Give me that cocoa.”
“Why the cocoa?”
“I have to throw it away. Anyway, it’s all cold now, and it won’t taste good.”
Having said that, Meg sneakily tried to take the cocoa cup Elliot was holding.
“Instead, I’ll make a new cocoa tomorrow.”
However, Elliot looked serious.
“No, I’m going to drink.”
“…It’s the first cocoa my mother gave me.”
“Young master.” Meg once again called Elliot, but he was stubborn.
“This cocoa is still warm.”
“But…” Meg couldn’t hide her uncomfortable expression.
While Elliot couldn’t take his gaze away from the cocoa cup he held in his hand.
After he hesitated for a while, he took a sip of cocoa.
It was warm and sweet.
