“Don’t stop me from flying to that person!”
After telling Yuri everything he wanted to say, Odin turned into a crow and flew away, as if saying he had nothing more to do with her. Yuri gazed after him with a complicated and odd look in her eyes.
Then she suddenly realized something.
‘Wait, what about my request?’
Odin left without even completing the request Yuri made. She didn’t know what he was so infatuated by, but it looked like he had fallen quite heavily.
‘Well, I don’t really need it.’
Yuri frowned and decided not to call Odin for the time being. The man who was tailing her but died at Leo’s hand seemed to be someone looking for mutants. And the situation in Carnot wasn’t exactly something she needed to know.
And considering she saw Lakis moving around obviously doing something, she figured he could handle it, whether it was revenge or something else.
‘I guess I wasted my time today then.’
Yuri glanced at where Odin disappeared into the sky, then she soon turned to go to the monastery. She had to get home before it was too late.
* * *
The next day, an unexpected customer visited the coffeehouse.
“Child, do you remember me?”
He was the old man who collapsed a few days ago while yelling at ‘Selena’ after seeing me.
“Yes, I do. Hello.”
For now, I greeted the old man then I asked.
“Are you alright now?”
“Of course! I’m great. I surprised you last time, didn’t I? I’m sorry, child.”
When I first saw him, I thought he had a scary impression but after talking to him directly like this, I felt he was a very kind and friendly grandpa. As expected, you can’t fully judge someone by their first impression.
“Do you have a cup of tea? I’m fine with anything, so give me whatever you like, child.”
That said, the title he was calling me by was a little…
Then again, in the eyes of this grandfather, I was practically a young child.
“Yes, please wait a moment. I’ll get something for you right away.”
I guided him to the most comfortable seat in the store then I went to the inside of the store.
“Do you know him, Ms. Yuri?”
Mr. Gilbert approached me with quivering eyes and asked. He seemed nervous because the grandfather looked like he was also a noble.
“I recently met him in front of the store once.”
It didn’t feel right to talk about someone’s sensitive family matters, like saying he saw his late daughter in me, so I stopped my explanation at that. Either ways, when Gilbert saw that I knew the old man, he looked relieved.
After saying I would bring the old man tea, I had to think about it for a bit. What kind of tea should I bring out?
Oh, right. We have ginger tea, let’s go with that.
A while later, I left the kitchen with a tray.
“This is ginger tea. If you like it sweeter, you can add some of this honey here.”
“Hoh, I see.”
The old man listened intently, like he didn’t want to miss a single word. Finally, he lifted the teacup and tasted its contents.
“Did you make it yourself, child?”
“Yes, do you not like it?”
“How could I not! Maybe it’s because it’s something you made, child but it’s very delicious!”
His following compliment were somewhat excessive, so I felt oddly pricked. The old man quickly took another sip of the ginger tea then he put the cup down and cleared his throat. Afterwards, he asked me:
“By the way, what is your name, child?”
For some reason, he had a covert tone like he was asking about a secret. There wasn’t really any reason not to answer so I replied.
“Yuri! It’s a pretty name.”
The old man nodded with a warm smile.
“How old are you?”
Instantly, I felt like the people in the coffeehouse were pricking up their ears in our direction.
“22, that’s a good age.”
In that manner, the old man asked me a few more simple questions till he finished ginger tea. Fortunately, there weren’t many customers around at this time so I didn’t mind briefly becoming his chatting companion.
“I enjoyed the tea, child. I’ll come again.”
And then, the old man left after giving me gold coins to pay for the tea, just like Kalian Crawford did when he first came here. On top of that, even though I said I would bring him change, he said he would be coming more often so I should keep it as payment in advance, which was exactly what Kalian did as well.
Are all nobles so similar in nature?
I thought with a tilt of my head. I recalled how the old man had collapsed on the road last time, so I looked out the door. The old man was being helped the middle-aged butler from last time and was climbing into the dazzling carriage.
After checking that, I went inside the coffeehouse again.
* * *
Not long after the old man left, another gorgeous carriage stopped in front of the coffeehouse.
And a handsome man stepped down from the carriage under the gaze of everyone in the coffeeshop.
“Oh my god, what day is this?”
Mr. Gilbert lamented as he used his handkerchief to wipe the sweat on his forehead.
“So you’re here today.”
When the man who entered the coffeehouse saw me, his eyes took on a shine. He was dressed more vibrantly than the last time I saw him, and his appearance made it seem like he was glowing.
He was none other than Damon Salvatore.
Just like before, I looked at the man who stood before me and frowned slightly. I heard from Gilbert that Damon Salvatore came yesterday but I didn’t really think he would come back today.
“A present for you.”
He took the bouquet in his hand and held it out in front of me. It looked like this was an extension of his ‘be my woman’ thing from before. The bouquet was huge and fancy, like it was made quite elaborately. But of course, I refused Damon Salvatore’s gift.
“I don’t accept personal gifts, customer-nim.”
At that, Damon’s eyes widened slightly.
“Why? I heard women like things like this.”
The expression on his face showed that he couldn’t understand why. Then as if he realized something, he spoke again.
“Ah, do you prefer jewelry? Just tell me whatever you want.”
What in the blazes is he doing right now…? Is he really doing this because he thinks women like it? Here was another beast who didn’t know what love was. Of course, that was only true if he was really trying to woo me.
I didn’t think Damon Salvatore’s actions were sincere. I wasn’t sure of the reason, but I knew he was doing this to draw me in at the very least…although he was quite wrong about how to get a woman’s interest.
“I can give you anything you want. I am the successor to the Salvatore family, and I have everything, whether it be money, power or fame.”
Damon said confidently.
Naturally, the attention of the people in the coffeehouse had been focused on Damon and me and they were all listening to everything he said. So the moment the name of the Salvatore family-the high nobles of the east-came from Damon’s mouth, gasps came from all over the room. Mr. Gilbert was also surprised, and his jaw went slack.
“I’m sorry but I’m not interested in that.”
But when I sharply refused again, the people around were even more shocked. I could tell they were afraid that I might get into huge trouble for upsetting a high noble. Even more so because Damon’s face hardened when he heard what I said.
His eyes trembled slightly, almost like he couldn’t accept the current situation. But Damon’s trembling eyes soon settled down and he spoke again.
“That doesn’t make sense. This is something people cannot get no matter how hard they struggle and strive for it! And I’m saying I have all of that.”
He looked like he was ready to convince me somehow. His spirit burned with useless willpower as he continued to speak.
“Becoming mine can make you the best in the east. The Salvatore family is the pillar that supports the East and even if you remove the family, I am Damon Salvatore!”
He seemed to regain his confidence the more he spoke, and ease came back to Damon’s face.
“I’m sure you know that most of the commercially available amenities and even the ones used in this coffeehouse are invented in the Alchemist Tower, right? The acronym on them is my name.”
The people in the coffeehouse knew the initials ‘DS’ on their freezers and heaters so they were surprised a second time and sucked in a breath.
“What I can do isn’t just limited to material things. The Salvatore family men are famous for being loyal to their spouse. We are different from some noble family that has illegitimate children even after marriage.”
Hearing this, I couldn’t help but think something was strange.
“So you understand now, right? You should know who is the smarter choice.”
Why do I feel like he’s talking as if he’s making a comparison to someone else? The nuance I was getting from this was that he thought there was someone else I was currently seeing.
I might just be my imagination, but when he said ‘some noble family that has illegitimate children’ it didn’t seem like he was talking about the general behavior of noble families but about a certain family.
Damon Salvatore was staring at me with an intense look in his eyes, as if asking if I still won’t admit it despite all this.
“I see. Your future spouse must be very happy.”
 If you haven’t noticed, Odin never says the gender of the person directly, so I had to translate it to ‘that person’.
Thank you for the chapter ♥︎
Chapter without Lakis noooo 😨
Let me press my ‘ooofff’ button for you Damon Salvatore
I’m kinda anxious after reading the next chapter’s teaser QAQ. Yuri I place all my hope on you please don’t forget that you have Lakis waiting for you at home :3
Don’t think she knows Damon trying to woo her. xD
He gave her flowers and asked her to be his woman. I’m pretty sure she’s aware lol
Another hilarious chapter! Poor Yuri, what a crazy couple days for her. I can just imagine her taking in all of these situations with a deadpan expression and a slight tilt of the head.
I loved how everyone listened in intently when she was asked how old she is. XD
So, illegitimate child… We have already guessed as much. Having these tidbits of information fed to us in small bursts is maddening! I want to know already! Haha
Thank you for this lovely chapter, take care! =)
Thanks for the update. Poor lil’ ol’ Yuri being involved in the world of nobility when she barely does nor cares about anything but a normal life. The old man was okay (and when she’ll *probably* eventually get her emotions back, it’ll be nice to have a nice family member even if she’s *probably* being treated as a substitute. Just read the teaser, d*mn! Damon’s persistence is so annoying that even HE had to make a move
I thought it was a different HE, I was hopeful 🤭
Thanks for the update
Thank you Miss Ruby.
You know if I live there I would visit Gilbert’s cafe often just for the daily drama. Man to be a customer in that coffee shop! 🤣
Exactly! Who needs a TV?
If I were Yuri, I would be like:
“You want me to be your woman? Fine, just answer 2 questions accurately: what’s my name? And how old am I?” After he fails, I would check with everyone else in the coffee shop and be like: “You see? It was easy. Everybody else knows.”
(There’s no way he knows that all of them didn’t know until 20 minutes ago 😉)
That would be hilarious.
Lol i like the idea of this happening
Thanks for the chapter 🥰
Damien Salvador. D&D stats wise hes a high int. low wis. He may be a genius but damn he’s dumb. He may be the last ML to take interest in Yuri but he’s the one of the trio of heroes who in a short time progressed that farthest. He’s meet, fallen, confessed, confessed again.
Genios/snow has been interested in her for two years but never really tried to go forward. I’m guessing because he realized he’d be turned down flat and never allowed near her again.
Lastly Crawford is just interested so far. But he’s destined to get more and more caught up with her due to the old man he ‘s under.
Well, no matter how hard these ponies run Lakias already passed the finish line.
He has already became her husband just waiting for his wife to return from work while he does some casual murder and stuff.
There is a secret in Snow character that the author is keeping, im the only one thinking this??🤔
Thanks for the update.
Oh my, poor Yuri. These chapter sure hectic to her, from Crazy Odin then The Reminiscent of old memories by the Old man and lastly The Overconfident Male lead Damon Salvatore ~~ Lakis gonna be busy to kick all the flies around Yuri and I bet Damon will be the 1st one he gonna kick.
Thank You Ruby-chan. I love the stories.
There’s no more hope for Damon, he might be at the second lowest level of rating right now in Yuri’s list aside from crowford.
Poor Gilbert he’s getting headache and will be getting more headache in the future
Thank you Miss Ruby!
Thanks for the chapter~ (๑>◡<๑)
Poor guy just got demolished
Can’t wait for Yuri to crush his stupid ego
The names bro 😭😭 did the author just go to a random white name generator and went fk it? I love the concept of the manhwa tho its so interesting and your translation is ever so engaging. Thank you!!!
How old was Anne Marie again?
With all those gasps I feel like I’m watching a melodrama xD Like “I’m…” *Dramatic zoom to his face* “Damon Salvatore!” *Gasps* and Yuri be like “I’m sorry, but…” *Another dramatic zoom from different angles* “…Not interested.” *Le gasps intensifies* and then “But Yuri Antonieta de las Nieves Rojas Sánchez!! I have it all!! I created everything you see!! ” *Dramatic music intensifies* *Super mega gasps* xD
That boy really needs to get a clue. He would save face at least. Metaphorically and literally, cause if Lakis gets a hold of him, a simple punch will make teeth fly.
On the other hand, I really feel the grandpa is trying to appease his pain with Yuri’s company. That or he thinks she’s somehow related to his daughter (maybe is just his wishful thinking, tho). Anyway, time will tell.
Also, Odin has left the chat xD
I’m dying at the fact that he just went to see her in order to tell her “Don’t try to stop me! You’ll never tear us appart!” And then just left her like “??????” AndkNskd xD
Thank you so much for your hard woooork!! <3
Ahhhh! Omg this story is just too good! I love how she’s finally meeting everyone almost at the same time. Perhaps kalian will come next then lakis since he’s so territorial lol. As a reader i feel like the people in the coffee house just watching the show. They must think their Ms.Yuri is some sort of runaway noble by now. I wonder how the story will progress as it feels around time that the setting should be moved out of ferret street but idk how theyd get yuri to move.
Thank you for chapter 🙂 missing Lakis,hope he is secretly observing and going jealous
Poor Mr. Gilbert is going to get a heart attack soon…
Lol. You got burned Damon. Hahahaha. Really like how Yuri unperturbed to the other fishes. Just stay with Lakis. I ship you two. YURI X LAKIS 4EVER. YUKIS. (｡•̀ᴗ-)✧
Damon (Who is very good looking): I have lots of money, influence and I’ll never cheat! This is a good deal! Be mine!
Well it seems like a pretty legit sales pitch— I mean romantic proposal considering the world they live in for most people. LOL.
But our Yuri already has a wonderful husbando and we are all sadists that want to see this oresama get knocked down a few pegs.
There’s just something so funny about Damon that I can’t really hate him even though he’s pretty pompous. I like him better than Kalian somehow because of the whole mutant hunt thing.
Thank you so much for translating this♡
By the way… Wasn’t Yuri’s hair originally blonde? And then after all those tests or whatever happened in that place, it became black. With this, she can’t be Selena. So all of this must be a misunderstanding I guess.
Thanks again <3
Shut up Damon! Yuri is Carnot’s future queen!
Este capítulo no tiene pérdida XD
Gracias por tu trabajo!
omg. that teaser tho! are there pics/character sheets for ygtwhv?
Lmao she totally block him🤣🤣
Thanks for the chapter !
Thank you so much for translating this! 💖.
Anyways, Damon… Lakis also have all features you mentioned… He’s powerful, famous, would never cheat on Yuri, and he can deal with flies like you with a simple mind tampering 😊
Go Lakis~ i’m betting my all on you!
Thank you for translating this chapter 💕🙏💕
Thanks for chap
Old man sees his daughter, scientist sees her as a way to beat someone else, snow sees her as a friend if not love target(i think?) ,crawford sees her as the person in portrait….yep its gonna be chaos when u add lakris as the icing on top.
That last line finisher was SAVAGE. Its like letting him blabber on till eternity then straight up say its pointless .
The last few chapters have cracked me up HAHAHAHAHA🤣
Press “F” to pay respect to Damon Salvatore
Damon is giving me Ferdie vibes. All I can hear is “I am Ferdinand von Aegir” now
I keep thinking maybe she’s a Crawford totally forgetting originally her hair was more like Lakis to which I’m like NOOOOO DONT BE RELATED TO HIM DONT RUIN MY SHIP!!!!!!!
Damon is a simp
No no. Lakis is a simp. Damon’s just a narcissist who thinks he’s in love. Lakis loves Yuri and “anything the (future) wife says is right”. Damon is the type to be like “You’re a lucky girl I am giving you the honor of being my wife!” like he is god’s gift to women.
