“Ah. . . They’re here.”

His face changed from that of a lord to that of a father.

“Let me introduce you. These are my children.”

They lined up in front of us and greeted us one by one, starting with the oldest, with shy smiles.

The youngest is 6 years old, then one each of 7 and 8 years old, two 10-year-olds, two 12-year-olds, three 13-year-olds, one 14-year-old, and one 15-year-old. A total of 12 children.

All of them were dressed in ethnic costumes, with various shades of silver hair, from brownish silver to peach-colored silver, to silver that was almost black.

From their curious looks, it was clear that they had been raised in a healthy and loving environment.

The eyes of Theodore-sama, looking at them, were warm like a real father’s.

I stood in front of them and curtsied as an example of a lady.

“I will be your tutor from now on, my name is Chloe. I am your teacher for manners and studies, but please be my teachers when it comes to the life of Heyerdahl.”

“”Teacher, nice to meet you!””

“Nice to meet you too.”

Their synchronized voices were very adorable.

After we finished greeting each other, a girl ――12-year-old Berretta-sama raised her hand.

“Teacher, may I ask a question?”

“Go ahead.”

“When will you become Lord Father’s bride?”

“Eh?!”

I let out an unladylike voice without thinking.

As I covered my mouth in surprise, Theodore-sama gave a wry smile.

Feeling my cheeks heat up under his gaze, I cleared my throat.

“No, that’s not it. I am here as a tutor. I am not Theodore-sama’s bride.”

“Eh, you’re not?”

“Because Lord Father, he never gets married.”

“But he has a lot of children. He became our Lord Father after our real father passed away.”

“It seems like he’s been down ever since he had his engagement broken off a long time ago.”

“That’s right. The broken engagement.”

“So we’ve been saying it would be nice if the teacher was his new lover.”

“Right?”

“Women are always talking about marriage.”

“Right. Lord Father is not hung up on his broken engagement, he’s just not interested in women because he’s working hard as a lord. Right, Lord Father?”

“Please say something, Lord Father.”

As the children started to chatter, Theodore-sama gave a wry smile.

“Hey, you guys. You’re making the teacher uncomfortable. And don’t talk about my unpleasant past without permission.”

“Do you want to show off your cool side, Lord Father?”

“Kyaa.”

“That’s not what Lord Father is about.”

“Serio, you’re just complaining because you don’t want Lord Father to be taken by a bride.”

“What did you say?!”

“Well, well, everyone.”

I tried to calm them down.

While re-crossing his legs on the sofa, Theodore-sama was shaking his shoulders and laughing as if he couldn’t help it.

“Haha. . . I’m sorry. It would be better if they were more like noble children, but whether it’s my upbringing or not, they’re all so innocent. . .”

“Not at all. It’s great to see them having fun. I’ve been teaching the children of my subjects, so I’m eager to get started.”

“That’s reassuring.”

I nodded back at Theodore-sama’s smile.

Then, I clapped my hands to gather the children’s attention.

“Alright. Everyone, please sit on that sofa. Today, your teacher will introduce herself and talk about the royal capital and her hometown. Please tell me about Theodore-sama and Heyerdahl.”

“Okay!”

I took advantage of the children’s curiosity and started by learning about them.
