Chapter 7: Sees as an Enemy
After one week of the first time I earned money.
I went to the three villages once, purified the water, and after that sold shaved ice.
Both of the trades needed almost no capital, and I earned 100k Cet in one week.
If you want to tell how much is that. 200k Cet is a month of living expenses for a four people family.
It was a reasonably good income, but not “Amazing!” like income.
But I could earn easily, so I was content with it.
Using the time when I am not going to work, I read Grimoires in the mansion leisurely.
The one that I’m reading right now is the Grimoire that has Raging Mist’s magic on it.
It is a very wide-ranged attack magic, and there is probably not many instance that I will use it, but the contents was as I’ve thought, very surreal, and reading it is very interesting.
In my side, while reading, Sylvia had a shaved ice, and lets me eat one spoonful at a time.
It has no particular meanings, but Sylvia insisted that she wanted to do it, so I just let her do what she want.
「You stupid shit!!」
I heard a loud voice that was echoing from the mansion.
It was Ojii-san’s shouting voice. I wonder what it is suddenly?
I was curious, so I made eye contact with Sylvia, left the Grimoire behind, and went to see what’s going on together.
In the courtyard, there was Ojii-san and Isaac Aniki.
Isaac was making his body small, and was being preached by Ojii-san.
「I’ve told you so many times before! There is no such thing as a free lunch. But even if I repeatedly said that, you don’t learn and keep pouring a lot of money」
It looks like he was being preached for failing a trade.
Isaac tried to behave while being scolded, but he dared to have a rebuttal.
「B-But Ojii-sama. Bruno said it would be absolutely profitable. He said that if I sponsor it now it would return to double」
「That’s too much of a joke」
I instinctively let out a voice. It was so ridiculous I couldn’t help to point that out.
I was glared at by Isaac.
……Can’t you not glare at me too much. I don’t know who is this Bruno, but saying that it would be absolutely profitable and it would return to double, even if it’s fraud it’s an outdated one.
Did you really fall for that Isaac.
「That’s why I’ve told you so many times!! There is no such thing as a free lunch. If it would be absolutely profitable, then why didn’t the man called Bruno do it himself」
Un, just like he said.
「Bruno told me, “You are my friend, so I will tell you specially”」
Did you really believe that, Oi oi.
In his rebuttal, Isaac was more and more scolded by Ojii-san.
He was scolded very much, told to look back on his actions, and released.
After Ojii-san went away, I was glared at by Isaac in the best way he could.
「What was that earlier!! And what’s with the way you look at me!!」
……Honestly, it was with pitying eyes, but I didn’t say it.
Falling for such a fraud, and not looking back on his actions at all………
「Stop that look!! You’re just a kid, a kid that hadn’t worked!!」
「You shut up!! A girl who has been bought shouldn’t interrupt!」
Being shouted at, Sylvia became teary-eyed.
*Gyutto* she held the hem of her clothes.
Her tears dropped……and fell to the ring.
*Kachiーn* I was enraged. I asked Isaac.
「Arerere〜, was Nii-san really earning money」
「Haa? What did you say」
「I, have no memory of Nii-san making money. Only fails at every trade and be scolded. That, is that really, “working”〜」
「A kid shouldn’t say cheeky things, getting a profit isn’t that easy!!」
He just should have said he had, but he got angry backーーYou haven’t really earned a profit ever since huh.
「I had a profit you know〜, in one week, about 100k Cet」
I showed the money I earned the last week
「W-What did you do」
「I made the water clean with magic, and I sold that」
Aniki lost his words.
But soon came back, and puts on airs.
「F-Fun. That much, is enough for a kid like you playing house」
「Un, it might be playing house〜. But Nii-san can only do less than that playing house right〜」
I told him unnaturally in child-mode, *Giro* glared at Aniki, and put an end to him.
「I’m a kid that’s “not married”, so playing house is okay right〜」
Aniki lost his words again. And couldn’t say anything back, and went away as if to run away.
I tried to follow him, and say a lot more things to him.
Saying things to people’s wife, he shouldn’t be left with only this.
But, I couldn’t go after him. My clothes were grabbed. It’s Sylvia.
Sylvia held my clothes, and looked up to me with her teary-eyes.
「Thank you very much, Lucio-sama」
She told me thanks with tears in her eyes.
I wiped Sylvia’s tears. I returned to my usual way of talking and said.
「I’ll tell you this, Sylvia is nothing like a girl who was bought. You are my wife even before we are born, you are the girl of my destiny, you are not something like a bought girl」
「……Let’s go back to the archives」
I still had a lot to say to Aniki, but it didn’t matter at all after seeing Sylvia’s face.
We returned to the archives, continuously read Grimoires, and ate shaved ice.
At night, we slept while holding our hands.
Thanks for the chapter! 🙂

My impression of the MC went up a 1000
Actually I’m started to dislike him a little bit since he only gaining money with magic which his brother don’t have …. He only not naive because he is a reincarnator
And his grandfather too, no what the reason is a grandfather’ll never ever call his grandson a stupid shit
As soon as the bakabro attacked the cute little girl…. no mercy remained for him… XD
Too soft. That is something left to the mother or grandmother. The Father’s and Grandfather’s duty is to teach the kid to be a grown man. This is why kids these days are so fucked up. There are no safe spaces in life and there shouldn’t be. Mistakes should be reprimanded, especially when they fail to see or admit it.
I’m gonna have to disagree with you there ahkot
Well, if you keep wasting large quantities of money on pointlessly over and over again, I’m more surprised he’s still allowed to touch the family fortune. Considering that this is at the level of several businesses transactions (not the first time), we can assume the money’s probably wasted by the millions. If I had a kid who wasted this much money and doesn’t learn from his mistakes nor does he ever reflect on it, yup he’s a stupid shit.
Oh and the gaining money with magic, it’s kinda like people who got better education and went to college versus people who got a not as high end education. If you have it, make use of it. If they don’t have it, it’s their problem not yours.
Besides, you also got to remember Lucio could have charged a crap ton for the shaved ice and water due to his monopoly, but instead he kept it cheap. Besides, how else is a 6 year old kid suppose to make money? Go do business transactions like his stupid shit of a brother?
on and on pointlessly*
Even if your grandson failed several times you should correct him steps by step and NO MATTER WHAT YOU GUY CONVINCE ME CALLING YOUR GRANDSON A STUPID SHIT IS HORRIBLY WRONG
And even if he charge a crap ton of money no one will ever buy it
when I mean a crap ton, I meant much higher than he currently charges, but still within range of the consumer’s willingness to pay.
Here’s an idea, instead of saying “he’s wrong”, “he’s wrong”, “he’s wrong”, try putting yourself into his shoes.
You’re a successful man, in fact you’re a noble. Throughout your lifetime through 10s of years of hard work, dedication, sweat, blood and tears (winston churchill quote ftw XD), you’ve accumulated a large sum of wealth, a trove of knowledge, and you’re even a mage. Then, you got this grandson who throws away millions (We’re talking about enough money to buy a house) like it’s nothing, falls for stupid business scams like “you’re a friend of mine, so here’s a little trick” OVER and OVER again, and he NEVER reflects, repents, and does it all over again.
If you got the tolerance for this grandson of yours, well congratulations (you hypocrite), you’ve got more money than the rest of us here to the point you don’t care your grandson’s constantly wasting 10s of millions.
Oh oh, and don’t forget. How do you plan to teach a grandson who never listens to you and takes you words to heart? Not to mention one that doesn’t even know he’s wrong and vents it out on his cute brother and sister-in-law.
“could have charged a crap ton”
Nobody or less would buy then.
He didnt tell to his brother about his income for brag was because he was angry about his brother told to her wife that she was bought even tough she suffer already. And the Grandfather is scolding the brother for make the same thing over and over again like Lucio say he dont reflect on his actions so yea he deserves being called stupid, one thing is fail and another is dont even bother in reflect about what was the mistake his brother is that kind of guy that instead of use money wise and steadly he want won money fast and easy.
Prepare yourself for a bunch of text edit
I have never been more confused than when I read this comment
surprisingly, not that much mistakes compared to the previous chapters
There’s much lost in translation so sorry for making a mistake. I have to translate-check in english-search for the words I don’t know-recheck-make a release by myself right now.
So I really don’t mind the trivial things and keep in mind the more important scenes.
Also, the author also sometimes have wrong letters or grammar that I have to correct.
So yeah, I’ll try to get better. But I have mood swings so I slack a bit in places where I find boring/trifle.
Put a public google doc or something at the start of chapter, and i can do editing as i read it, or you can just send the gdoc to me via novelupdates or smth
I think for this para –> 「That’s why I’ve told you so many times!! There is no such thing as a free lunch. If it would be absolutely profitable, why did the man called Bruno do it himself」
[why did the man called Bruno do it himself] –> should be [why didn’t the man called Bruno do it himself?]
hehe xD well thx for the TL. I really like it <3 I also understand the hard work in TLing as I'm a CN TL 😉
Thanks for the chapter! 😄
Best MC EVAH!!!!!!! Take that you generic noobish dense protagonist… ^_^
You are my loli so don’t cry i will protect you!!!!??? Tsk!!?? You lucky bastard!!??
Aw~, so adorable XD
Thanks for the chapter :3
so. i am a little bit confused with the MC. first he said that he will treat sylvia like a little sister, now he seemed to treat her like a full pledged wife
is his child body affects his mind or what
Sorry, I think I had a mistake that I didn’t translate it as he was just “thinking” like that. But he probably changed his mind after seeing her the first time.
Thanks for the chapter!
Good job Lucio! And pretty much dislike his aniki now.
Thanks so much for all your hard work!!!
I really like the children interaction. So innocent and adorable. I won’t consider him a Lolicon, since he hasn’t tried to do perverted stuff to the girl with bad intentions. Thanks for the chapter.
Thanks for the sweet treats!
i had gelato too
Thanks for the chapter.
Thanks for the chapter.
He is getting carried away by his power and his grandfather favor.
So he knows he’s playing house. lol
This makes it easier to read for me. Chapter was surprisingly good btw. Thx.
Pretty childish of him to bully his less talented brother like that even if the brother is a brat
Prince in shining armor 😀
thx for the chapter ^^
This novel has a NTR tag!!!
where did you see that? cause the only thing I saw was “polygamy” and “harem” iykwim
If this is generic novel, then that bakabro will be exiled, leveled up, then return with triumph.
as always thank you for the amazing chapter :3
but my impression of MC and grandpa dropped.. really..
I still cant decide whether this is Heartwarming or Disturbing…either way its poorly written.
Thank u always for ur great work…
Yeah! You tell ‘im Lucio!
