    Exactly, if they think neglecting is just as terrible as abusing... No it is not... Try reading the abandoned empress, she was abused and killed by her own husband even when she was pregnant she was abused... Her emotional scar was too deep that she did everything just to not make connection/get married to the emperor again and their loved only bloomed in the most latter half of the story but her pain remained... Unlike here they both didn't communicate, there were no others, so every effort of the ML in their 2nd TL is being appreciated by the MC little by little...

    TBH the ML here will be much more appreciated if he was like Hugh in Lucia except the yellow roses and confessing was too much work for them if you know what I mean

    Oh dang it, we'll see the kids only near the end? :blob_tilt:
    So the story will revolve a bit more about magic? Idk cause I read 'fate' cause if it isn't lifestyle then it's some higher power..
    Is there some poor second ml (I hope none tbh) like maybe a rakan guy with a ponytail that will like fl (pls not)

    It may also be possible that they only noticed it had gone missing (after a long while) like when he had already left and also since messages are sent manually (by a carrier on horses or birds) there is still distance to travel so he may got the message too late.

    So to factor it out theres:

    Time when the stone was found missing..
    Time when appropriate superiors are alerted that the stone is missing..
    Possibly a time wherein they conducted the search before alerting higher ups…
    A time for Interrogations on the personnel handling the stones..
    And then the time for messengers to send the news of the missing stone to Ivan.. So I think the allotted time is appropriate.

    Viche is trash, period. All he thought was how “indiscipline” Chester has become and tried to dismiss Cassia during that whole table negotiation. It was so nice to see Cassia clap back at the scum.

    The current Rakan tribe was truly a group of honorable people. They only kidnapped Cassia because they were worry about Chester keep fighting their people. (and yes, I guess they are kind of naïve for believing Viche’s words…) The leader of the kidnap group promised Cassia he would keep his word and make sure no harm would come to her before she sees her husband (during the transport).

    The most touching scene of this event is, without a doubt, when Chester was willing to die for Cassia. He actually tear up (and did shed tear eventually) when he saw Cassia and said his “last words” to Cassia when he thought he was soon going to end his life. He was worry about what might happen to Cassia after he dies. It was a bit comical at some part (like how Chester’s subordinates react when they heard his sobbing voice and how Cassia kind of scolded him like a mom to a child when she tells him not to cry). But at that moment, Chester didn’t feel sad for his death; he was sad for not being able to enjoy his life with Cassia longer.

    -Cassia decides to write a letter to her father, asking for financial support. She reflects on how she was not able to let go of her pride in the previous time line to ask. (She never asked the Ruberno family for anything). But getting a second chance made her realize how insignificant it was.

    -However, after the incident with Viche, many Northern lords send valuables as a token of appreciation. Count Axios, in particular, gave a large sum of gold. This help tremendously with Cassia’s plan since she needed funds to build troops for Greze’s fief (so Chester no longer have to outsource mercenary groups), train the Rakan’s tribe, and invest in the wig business.

    -Cassia feels uneasy towards Count Axios because he actually asked Cassia to be his mistress in the previous timeline. There was a civil war that broke out in her first year of marriage, and she took extensive care looking after Count Axios when he was injured, by Chester’s request. (Axios was the one who hired Chester during the Great War and Chester respects Axios ever since). And after that Axios was somehow intrigued by Cassia. During her first encounter with Axios in this time line, she thinks she draws his interest once again when he realized Cassia was the one who overturned the crisis within Viche Viscounty. (and SHE’s NOT WRONG)

    -She received the reply from her father and wanted to visit him to discuss the wig business in person (She is looking for investors)

    There goes your question. XD
    Now i'm curious with how
    Count Axios would look/feel like. Our Cassia is a woman of pride so i don't think the previous nor new timeline would spark her interest on this potential 2nd ML. And Chester is already pure and perfect for Cassia. :giggle:

    -a point I forgot to mention from last post, but Cassia has once again decided to work hard (no longer wants to go on strike)for the Greze’s vassal. She credited her change of heart to the new potential she saw (wig business and the Rakan forces) ALSO her gentle husband. She specifically mentioned how she liked waking up from the loving gaze of Chester.

    More Details

    I absolutely love the “letter incident” when Chester found out Cassia’s letter to her father. He apologized to Cassia, that she had to do this for him and blamed himself for not being a reliable lord. But Cassia told him there was nothing to be sorry for because she is no longer a Ruberno, but a Greze; and it’s only natural for her to be looking out for her vassals. And when Chester told her he will work harder to lessen her duty, Cassia said that’s not actually what she wanted. She told him she would be lonely if Chester has to go out to war (for earnings) so she wished he could stay in the fief more. And regarding how her father would feel when she asks for money, she threw the question back to Chester and ask how he would feel if THEIR DAUGHTER asks Chester for support. Chester obviously said he would do anything for their daughter, and finally felt not as guilty as he initially was. The communication between the couple is so ON POINT.

    The mood after that conversation got good and the 2 kissed, (Chester asked for consent here too) But Cassia stopped him from going further cause her period was late (spoiler, she wasn’t pregnant though). Chester apologized here too but Cassia comforted him saying she just wasn’t feeling well and tried to be considerate to get him to sleep in another room because it might be hard for Chester to lie next to her without doing any funny business. This slightly upset Chester a bit and he told Cassia he is happy as long as he gets to stay by her side (he was sad Cassia doubted his self-control LOL). Cassia then explained to him that she wanted him to get a good rest too because she knew how hard he worked for the last few days. Chester was very touched that Cassia recognized the fact he was also working hard because most ppl in the mansion didn’t or kind of just assumed that’s a given. The night ended with Cassia asking Chester to lend her his arm as a cushion and the couple took their well-deserved rest. APPLAUDING SO HARD for the honesty and openness between the 2. ^O^

    There is also anther worth-mentioning episode when James had dinner with the Greze couple (before they head to Reberno) to go over the material they are going to use for the wig. During the conversation, he brought up one of Chester’s most impressive war story back in the Great War, when he won against a troop of 150 thousand men with just 50 thousand of his own. Cassia was very surprised and wanted to learn more about the details, but Chester was being super low-profile and just wanted to brush this over. He praised Count Axios instead, for allowing him to lead the troops and was just following orders. When James vigorously tried to defend Chester and wanted to tell Cassia that wasn’t the case at all, Chester would try to interrupt James. The back and forth got to the point where Cassia became upset and told Chester she wanted to hear her own husband’s achievements. (She also softly questioned why Chester was underselling himself). We got a first glimpse here at Chester’s self-esteem issues (my heart aches)

    -When the couple arrived at the Rubern’s mansion, Cassia immediately noticed her father and sibling were giving Chester the cold shoulder (Because all their family thinks Chester is undeserving of Cassia). Except for the mom, she recognized how much Chester cherishes Cassia from the way he looked at her (Moms know best)

    -The young siblings were very disrespectful to Chester, but they’ve done it in a sarcastic way so Chester couldn’t pick up (like having a staff next to Chester to explain how to properly eat the dishes, OR act surprised that Chester didn’t recognize most of the dishes) Chester was totally fine with it (he genuinely thought the siblings were helping him), but it was Cassia who couldn’t stand it and was protecting Chester all the way (like tearing up meat with her hands and feeding it to Chester, saying ppl should eat however they want, it’s just food). But eventually, Chester was able to convince the siblings with his own charm (more details later)

    -Ian showed up with a “scholar” and they had more conversation on the magic stone research. This scholar knew Cassia travelled back from time and told her a bunch of secrets. He confirmed that it required sacrifices in order to activate the time traveling magic. Cassia wanted to know if her children could still be born again and the scholar told her the children needed to be conceived on the same day as her previous TL.

    -After Cassia successfully made a deal with her father for the wig business, the couple was getting ready to head back home. Before they depart, the scholar gave Cassia contraceptives (pills) to help her not get knocked up before the date (Cassia actually remembered the date)

    -It wasn’t spelled out directly but its freaking obvious (from numerous hints) that the scholar was Rael who somehow travelled back in time. The Scholar’s name was Ra-ale-lu-gor for Chris sake… (The pronunciation was too similar in Korean)

    More Details


    The sibling tried to ridicule Chester again when he was alone (So Cassia couldn’t help), by making fun of Chester’s commoner root etc etc. Chester took it all in without breaking a sweat, so the sibling grew the nerve to suggest their sister is better suited to someone like Ian, thinking Chester would agree to that too (cause he agreed with everything else the siblings were saying). BUT Chester rejected the idea (still without anger I must add) and said he knows he is lacking but he will try his best to make Cassia happy and spend the rest of their lives in Greze’s fief. Cassia actually arrived a few minutes ago and most of it. She gave her siblings a real lesson and scolded them for good then grabbed Chester and stormed off. When the 2 were alone, Cassia apologized to Chester; that although she did anticipate to some extent that her family would be hostile towards Chester, but never thought it would be this much. She felt bad dragging Chester here for her own agenda (she wanted to see her family). But Chester thinks her family’s behaviors are very well justified because he genuinely believes Cassia was too good for him. How mean her family was to him just showed how much they loved her. He also added he just could never get mad at them because they are her family. What Chester said pulled hard on Cassia’s heart string and wished she could have had this in her previous time, and was sad she only get to know Chester when she is living on borrowed time. (Whenever Cassia thought about her past life when she has a fluffy moment with Chester always makes me bittersweet and want to tear up…)

    Chester ran into the sibling the next day in the garden and received their apologies. But Chester comforted them instead and let them know their sister was not mad anymore. He also lent them his coat when he noticed they were underdressed in the chilling weather and carried them up, and re-stated again that he vowed to make sure Cassia will have a happy life. The siblings finally surrendered at Chester’s self-less kindness (Chester perfect DAD material)

    The night when Cassia learned the truth from the scholar, Chester told her he now starts to wonder how their children would be after meeting Cassia’s sibling. And they started talking about their future children, but this lead to her thinking about what the scholar has said. She asked Chester what he would do if he needs to sacrifice something in order to see her again and Chester told her he would “die for her right this instant if he needed to“ (I’m done. The man doesn’t need to say another word)

    Sorry for dividing the quote to several parts... But...

    This is something that Chester haters need to understand. These issues don't go by as you grow up. If you grew up with your self-esteem being kicked continuously on the ground, it will just get worse as time goes by, specially if you do not meet the right set of friends to help you realize your true value.

    HAHAHAHAHA.... Hopefully i will also remember these details 10 year later. Thank God Cassia has god like memories in remembering such specific details... XD

    Thank you so much for the spoilers. Much love! <3

    Cassia rememebered becuase the times they spent the night together "could be countered with her fingers" as she puts it.
    She also mentioned somewhere that she was always by herself when she wakes up from her previous life.

    So I only know the story from what's been shown in the manhwa and the spoilers here, but I managed to unlock the first chapter of the side story and it's basically from Lucy's pov. Warning does spoil a bit at the beginning of where Chester and Cassia stand now in the future and Lucy is 14 years old at this point.
    When Gree is 20 years old. Twenty years have passed since Jester Greze, a military officer from commoners who united the central and northern regions, smoothly took over the throne and the history of the empire began to be rewritten. Since his accession, the emperor and his wife, who have been very busy, do not see a new flow of power. Even after it was settled, I couldn’t rest. It was like people who were not destined to rest.

    The princess of the Greese Empire, Lucy Greese, was raised by busy parents from the time she was born, but she felt that there was nothing she lacked.

    To be precise, even though they lacked even ten bodies, the parents poured their love and attention on their children to an excessive degree, so there was nothing to be sad about because they were busy.

    To be more precise, there was no lonely bird, and Lucy was even a little annoyed. Of the two, the father is definitely the one.

    Lucy Greese let out a long sigh as she looked into my face in the mirror.

    Her fine silver hair, blue eyes like jewels, and dense facial features that looked like it was crafted with great care resembled her mother, who said she had a lot of trouble because of her beauty.

    For that reason, since she was a child, she had been receiving praise for her appearance from a young age, and she hated people who praised her appearance the most at the first meeting.

    If someone hears you, you may frown on why you are so picky when you praise them, but you may ask yourself, “Why the hell are you doing this at least 24 hours a day? Are you pretty?” If you listen to the words for over ten years ad live your life, that’s an unavoidable reaction. So like this.

    From afar, with a frivolous sprint, the throat is raised to the point that it hurts the ears, and the light brilliance.

    Disrespectful, distracted, and impatient. It looks like a big deal, but Lucy knows it itsn’t. It would be surprising to suddenly open the door and enter, but Gree I, the emperor of this country.

    His great honor is His Majesty, Emperor Jester Greze.

    In a foreign country, it is her father, who has been salivating at praise for capturing the hearts of the people and leading the empire to prosperity, encompassing commoners and nobles.

    I live in a sluggish life, but I think it was because I was devoted to self-management every day, and even though my eldest son, Rael Eger, had grown up, he looked young both inside and outside the emperor.

    Looking at the young face of her father, who would look like an older brother and younger brother, who was a little bit older if placed side by side with her older brother rael, lucy thought.

    ‘I’d rather be a middle-aged beauty with a tired face how I wish I had.’

    He acted like a child, so lucy couldn’t feel the dignity of his father who was praised by people all the time. It was so sad.

    ‘what else’

    Jester had a serious face for some reason. She had just cut her hair short with her mother Cassia’s grooming man named Dani, who gave her a more ferocious impression that might have felt pretty sharp.

    Jester saying lucy is becoming more like her mother

    He goes on to say did I tell you the story of when your mother first came to greze and lucy responds with yes, you have told it to me 220 times since I started counting

    Jesters is like I think you’re exaggerating

    Lucy thinks that it is exaggerated by the total count without misses would exceed 220 times.

    When jester tells the story of cassia, jesters expression from bright turns hardened, “you mother must be doing well there.”

    “this father is always upset. Your mother after marrying me and having to suffer for the rest of her life, lucy who covered her eyes and bit her lower lip and muttered, looking sadly at jester who took a deep breath and top a step closer to her ‘father’

    ‘yes lucy’

    Lucy smacks jesters chest, and says ‘father if anyone hears it, they will think that my mother has passed away.’

    ‘I’m dying to see her’

    ‘oh so let’s go back soon!’

    ‘I want to do that too, don’t you notice it a little bit?’

    They weren’t at the imperial palace, where lucy was born and raised, but at the southern louverno territory. Reason why jester was there is bc of magic stones piles in havel. Rare stones, large quantities invested by the mother? Of the empress Cassia.

    Investing in development of magic stones have been happening for a long time, but nothing has been achieved, but it’s still worth it.

    He’s there as a warning to people trying to plunder the stones (I think, it got confusing)

    Both cant leave palace for a month, so jester went and once he got inside the carriage grabbed cassias hem and screamed in pain for an hour (lol the simp)

    ‘bring me with you’ a week before leaving for louverno. Lucy was tormented and half heartedly nodded she understood and go with him. “bring me back jester said he couldn’t afford to live without seeing his daughters face for a whole month

    There only in the second week in loverno and jesters complaining and lucy has about had it with him

    Lucy says that he needs to hold out for one more week and she tries to distract him with games but she knows it useless bc it won’t be fun as jester will only bring this back to conversations about mom.

    14 years old has not changed, lucy gets embarrassed they way he holds her saying she’s not 6 yrs old anymore

    Then as chesters holds his daughter lucy says to him do you what will make you worry you these days and he’s like no? and she’s like soon one day I’ll fall in love get married too. And chester is like what do you mean that’s possible? (over protective dad wants to keep his baby girl forever)

    But then goes to say you don’t have to worry, bc you being happy is the most important thing. If you want to meet a good man and get married you should of course do that. Do you mean that I look like such a closed minded person? Lucy shakes her head and has a puzzled expression.

    He says that she’s only 14 and can worry about this later.

    And promises that if she finds someone she like he’ll allow her to marry without saying a word (aww what a supportive and understanding dad)

    Heir of ruberno, alan ruberno,, sort of Lucy’s maternal uncle, has invited them to play card games and tea. At the invitation, jester’s face hardens, bc alan has been harassing them to play almost once a day.

    Even though jest doesn’t like it he always goes. He puts lucy down and says he doesn’t want to go and lucy says she would like to spend more time with her father and jester brightens up at this possible excuse, but decides not to and resigns his fate.

    As lucy waved a sad goodbye to her father, she quickly leaves, tired of being cooped up at the castle and needs a break (ie: she’s going to sneak out of the castle and plans to be back by dinner)

    However this event would cause something, Idk it got confusing but the mtl mentioned this, How heartbreaking ren will be to find her. Will there ever be an Unprecedented situation forces louberno and havelun will all be moved. And 14 years after being born, will begin a terrifying cold war relationship with terribly close father?
    So from what the comments say I think it's supposed to be the side story of Lucy and someone named Remiel?

    Many thanks for the translation :aww:
    Still, am I the only one who's bothered by the fact almost all the ML have to become Kings :notlikeblob: Especially in Chester's case. It's not easy to be a King, and Chester seems to love his carefree life more than power. Why not let him and Cassia just change their territory into a flourish land and be together? Why put something like power and responsibity onto his shoulders while he's not born or trained for it? It's a great burden :hmm:

    Thankyou for the spoiler. It's so unexpected for me that chester became an emperor:blobsweat_2:
