The Little Bear shouted, hurriedly taking another two candies out of his subspace.
Of course, I spat it out right away. 


The candy fell down my clothes and finally, to the dirt floor.
I reached out to the Little Bear. 


“Yeah, yeah.”

The Little Bear gave me two candies as he nodded along. 

I quickly placed one preciously in my subspace, and the other in my mouth. 

‘Oh, I like it so much!’

I had no idea the taste of sweetness could make me so ecstatic.
I glanced at the candy on the dirt floor with sad eyes. 

‘What a waste… Maybe I can take it back secretly…?’

As if reading my thoughts, the Big Bear quietly turned to the candy and used a magic spell.
The candy disappeared into dust without even a single sound.


The Little Bear wiped the sweat off his forehead and stared at me with pity.
I was too ashamed to look at the sight. 

‘Ugh! Why are you crying!’ 

I covered my eyes with my hands. 

“Dia? What’s wrong?”

“I’m ashamed of being such a child…”


‘Why am I so childish…’

I lived until I was 18 in my previous life.
If you added the seven years from my current life, I’m practically already 25.
But even in my view of the current situation, my actions were clearly not that of a 25-year-old. 

I knew it was because of the abnormal environment I was around.
In my previous life, I lived in a temple starting from the mere age of seven.
My mind had hardly grown since then. 

I couldn’t stay this way. 

I had finally gotten a new start after reincarnation, but my world was still very narrow.
Above all, my body was still too young. 

‘I don’t think there’s anything I can do about acting like a child…’

Still, I was embarrassed. 

A long time passed before I raised my lowered head.
What greeted me though was the sight of two bears closing their mouths tightly, their faces, however, were full of laughter. 

‘What’s wrong?’

The Little Bear grinned and whispered, “Dia, if you come with us you can eat things far more delicious than that.
Let’s go together, okay?”

‘Something more delicious?’

It felt like my eyes were spinning.
Still, I wouldn’t fall for that.
My mouth, however, was still diligently sucking on the candy. 

‘If it’s better than this… Oh no! I can’t fall for it just because of some candy like a kid!’

I focused on the two bears again. 

Their appearances were terrifying, but they seemed decent.
However, I still couldn’t be a hundred percent sure. 

‘Even if they’re villains or someone related to the Cardinal, wouldn’t it be fine if I just take a look at the situation and then run away?’

The Big Bear was strong, but he didn’t seem to have that much capacity.
I nodded after finishing thinking. 

“Dia will come with.”

If the proposal they made earlier was true, I would only have to stay for about three years. 

‘I’ll leave when I’m about ten and come back here after.’

If the Big Bear kept his promise, the children would be fine soon.
However, even if he was a high-ranking noble, it would still be difficult to touch a Lord. 

‘I’ll take care of it later.’

By then, my body would be miles stronger, so it would be okay. 

“You did a great job!”

The Little Bear smiled brightly and hugged me.
It was a careful and gentle touch like one would use on a treasure.
It was really warm.
It was awkward and strange, but I didn’t hate it.  So, I stayed in his arms. 


Suddenly, the Little Bear let me go.
He frowned a little as his nose flared. 

“Let’s wash up for now.”

I bowed my head in shame. 

“There’s a lake over there.
Let’s go and wash up over there,” said the Big Bear

“I’ll go with her.
Juliano, you go to the village and get Dia’s shoes and clothes.
Get ready to go.”

“Right away Father.” 

The Big Bear came forward and picked me up.
Hugging was already awkward, but now that I was aware of what state I was in, I was even more worried. 

“I know you can smell it.
Put me down.” 


I banged on his back, before bowing a little.
I sniffed myself.
But I couldn’t tell because it was the smell of my won body. 

“Isn’t it…”

The Big Bear said convincingly, stroking my hair with one hand.
It was still a soft touch.
Like touching something lovely and cute. 

‘Am I that cute?’

I had never heard such words in my past life.
However, after reincarnation, the orphanage staff often told me that I was cute.
But whatever they said was naturally horrifying to me, so I ignored them all. 


The lake was not far away. 

“I’ll go take a shower then.”

I’ll help you.” 

“I’m used to doing it alone in the orphanage.
And turn around! Protection needs to be drawn.”

“Protection needs to be drawn? Oh, privacy…” 

The Big Bear stared at me, and when I didn’t back down, he sighed briefly before pulling a basket out of the subspace.
There was a big towel and soap in the basket. 

I yelled as I received the basket. 

“Don’t you dare look!”

“Yes, I promise.”

When the Big Bear turned his back, I used magic to move the water and began to wash my whole body.
I usually did it roughly, but I did it meticulously this time.
Especially, I paid a lot of attention to my dirty face.
After washing up, I glanced at the water. 

The body covered by loose clothes was as thin as a skewer and pale.
The short dark brown hair trimmed in the form of a haircut was rough and uneven. 

‘I indeed look pitiful.’

My face, however, was fine.
My cheeks were full of baby fat, so it added a hint of cuteness.
Since I was freshly washed, my skin was a little pinkish and tender.
I had round eyes the color of hair.
It was a common dark brown, but they were very large and sparkling.
The eyelashes were also very long. 

‘I washed it quite clean!’

“I’m done.”

I said as I stepped out of the lake. 

The Big Bear looked back at me, and his eyes grew a little bigger. 

‘What’s wrong?’

The Big Bear suddenly fell in front of me.  He collapsed with only one knee remaining to support him.
His eyes were obviously fixed on me, but they were cloudy as if looking at something else. 

‘What is he thinking?’

The Big Bear closed his eyes.
At first glance, he was just expressionless, but he was clenching his fist.
Strong enough to reveal the blue veins on the back of his hand. 

‘He’s suppressing a lot of pain…’

I wanted to know what was going on, but I didn’t think I should ask.
So, I waited quietly. 

“…I’m sorry.”

It was only a long time afterward that Big Bear opened his eyes and opened his mouth.
It was a bitter voice. 

“It reminded me of the old days.”
