Valia was the daughter of a knight.
Her father’s skills with the blade were mediocre—it was neither exceptional nor was it terrible. Though, Valia heard about it only after his death.
Trying to make ends meet, Valia’s father died in war. And accordingly, the palace paid a monthly pension to Valia, his only bereaved family.
Valia had no relatives. That might have been for the better, as she was able to receive all of her pensions without them being taken away by any greedy relatives.
Valia remembered. When she was around 13 years old, all the money she had saved was gone. A maid who was a long-time employee of hers was the culprit.
Despite being from a lower social standing, the much older maid was not kind to the noble-born Valia. She ignored Valia because she was young with no one to take care of her. But for the young Valia, stew and aromatic bread from older people were essential. Yes. Valia thought of the maid as though she was her mother.
When she worked as an escort lady-in-waiting, she bought lottery tickets regularly issued by the Gel Empire imperial family, and then gave up soon after. Valia regretted it very much. She wished she had at least memorized the numbers. She gave up after trying to recall the lottery number that she did not remember.
Fortunately, other memories came to her mind clearly.
A beautiful woman with ivory skin appeared in the imperial lake. Black hair, black eyes, and a mysterious look as if she was shaped by the night sky. A voice saying that she did not come from this world, but another world. She, who would be crowned as the Crown Princess later said her name was Yeri.
