2 Episode 2. Day in Storm Castle (1)
Six more years have passed since Jean picked Barissada.
Jean no longer suffers the shame of a nanny changing diapers, but imitating a child was still an embarrassment.
‘I want to get out of this storm.’
a stormy nature
a detached house in Looncandel Children in Looncandel will not be able to take a single step outside this storm until they are ten years old.
It was because of the threat of assassination.
« What kind of crazy bastard would assassinate a child in Looncandel? Jipple wouldn’t do that crazy thing either.’
About 200 years ago, it actually happened.
Another swordsman, Kungenga, attacked Looncandel, resulting in the death of nine young Looncandel.
The next day, Kungen was exterminated not only by the entire family but also by the distant relatives of his servants and disappeared into history.
After all, it has become a tradition and a rule for children in Looncandel to remain stormy until the age of ten after a ritual of choice.
Stormborn is a castle with an atmosphere worthy of its name.
Located at the top of Mount Murakhan, the highest known mountain in the world, rain and wind and thunderstorms poured through all four seasons, as its name suggests.
‘It’s not a good place for kids’ emotions. Well, having spent my childhood in a place like this… All my brothers must have been so cruel.’
There were only two brothers left in the storm. The rest of the heat was not old enough to stay in the storm.
Jin and his two brothers.
And the five elite guards, the nannies, and about a dozen servants who guarded them, were all they had to do in this vast storm.
« Jin! »
As soon as I heard the voice calling for me, I was very irritated.
The name of the boy who sang « Jin » in a nervous voice is Daytona Looncandel. He is two years older than Jean.
« Where’s that great barissada, alone? Hahaha. »
Next, the sarcastic boy is Heitona Looncandel. As the name suggests, they were identical twins with Daytona.
The Tonya brothers of Looncandel.
Those who had experienced the brothers in their previous lives said this in unison.
They’re evil bastards.
Jean looked back.
He also had no good memories of the Tonya brothers.
Jin has been particularly bullied by the brothers since he was a child because he chose barissada when he was one year old.
However, it is a mistake to think that the nine-year-old brothers are bullying their seven-year-old brother.
The first thing the Tonya brothers, who escaped the storm a year later, did, was murder. He was by nature a problematic brother.
When Jean did not answer, the dispute between the Tonya brothers continued.
Today is Jin’s nanny, Gilly’s stormy day. The Tonya brothers had no plans to leave Jean as fine as they had been looking forward to this day.
« Hey, I’m asking. Where did you put the barissada? »
It was a year ago that the torment of the Tonya brothers began in this life.
At first, it was a subtle harassment that the nanny and Gilly didn’t notice. Lock the door or sprinkle a lot of salt on Jin’s soup when you go into the bathroom.
Then he hung the dead bird on Jin’s door, or secretly released the poison scorpion he caught in the stormy yard on his bed. In that way the bullying got worse and worse.
And Jean endured it all silently.
Two brothers striding toward the camp.
A smile began to spread around Jin’s mouth, which was looking at them casually.
« Well, where did I put it? Did he poke it in your back?”
a towering figure
The Tonya brothers, who stopped walking, looked alternately at Jean and each other. This was not the reaction they imagined.
The back door… ….
Even if the Tonya brothers were born homicidal, it was a radical vocabulary to hear at the age of nine. However, the brother’s face turned red in an instant, as if he recognized that it was a very offensive word.
« What are you saying now… Jean, are you crazy?”
« Get a hold of yourself. You don’t have a nanny now, do you? »
Jean burst into laughter and took a step closer to her brother.
It wasn’t only the Tonya brothers who waited for the nanny to leave. Rather, Jean waited more eagerly than them.
To kill these devilish bastards who don’t even want to call them brothers.
‘If I were in my previous life, I would be seven years old. You couldn’t even imagine standing up to the Tonya brothers.’
But not now.
Even though the 19-year-old Tonya brothers, not nine, were before his eyes, he was confident of killing one.
The Tonya brothers had not yet figured out the situation and glared their eyes.
« I’ll just break your nose and finish it off if you beg for it now.”
« Or I’ll make you look like the bird I hung in your room yesterday. »
About five steps with the steps of a seven-year-old child. It was the distance between the Jin and Tona brothers now facing each other in the stormy corridor.
« Ahhhh! »
At the moment, Heitona sat on the floor with a short scream. The scene that Daytona, who was startled, turned her head and checked, was when Jin pressed her younger brother’s back.
Jin narrowed the distance in a blink of an eye and put his fist in Heitona’s abdomen.
« Huh? »
Daytona was then knocked down by Jin’s fist. It was the first time in my life that all my brothers had been beaten like this, and the seven-year-old Chin’s fists were cold and hard as ice balls.
‘What the hell is this?’
At the moment, Daytona saw the blackness surrounding Jean’s fist.
There was no time to think about what the energy was. Fingles, while the eyeballs were about to loosen, another fist flew in.
« Oop! »
The scream did not go off properly as if the throat had been clogged. Tears welled up from the eyes that responded to the pain, and only the thought that something was wrong filled Daytona’s head.
There’s no one in this hallway.
I chose this place on purpose to bully Jean, but I never imagined that it would rather be poison.
« I buried that poor bird that you guys trampled to death.”
Puck, puck, puck.
While speaking without height, Qin continued to climb up and swing his fists alternately over the two fallen men.
‘They’re still kids, is that too much?’
For a moment the thought flashed through Jean’s mind, but soon disappeared. The nine-year-old Tonya brothers in their previous lives fed Jean something like horse poop.
If Jean had just put up with it today, something similar would have happened.
« Whoo. »
The brothers, who had been beaten for a long time, trembled with collapse. Jean stood up and looked down at them casually.
« The less I see in my family, the better. If you want to live.”
« Dear old man!
Sensing an unusual atmosphere, a family guardian ran into the hallway.
He was a top-rated guardian. No matter how much Looncandel was, he was not surprised by the children’s fight.
But the guardian was forced to open his eyes wide at the sight of the fallen Tonya brothers and the still-standing Qin.
« The seven-year-old master, Jean, beat two nine-year-old masters? »
It can’t be. Seven and nine years of age had a profound difference in basic development, and even the Tona brothers had begun to learn Looncandel’s martial arts.
On the other hand, Jin has learned nothing, not to mention fighting. At least so far as the guardian knights know.
« Urrrrrrrrr. »
« Lord Jean, what the hell is this…….”
When Daytona managed to groan, the driver asked.
« All of a sudden, you two had a fight.”
« Yes? »
« You two fought.”
The guardian immediately noticed that it was a lie, but he couldn’t argue. Jin, smiling and speaking, seemed to have already finished calculating how things would go.
A guardian knight is in the position of protecting children from the outside. It was not in a position to argue about what happened in the storm.
‘I knew it, but Looncandel’s got a lot of kids… I’ll just report to the housekeeper.’
The guardian knight bowed his head. Even though he was still only seven years old, Jean was a pure blood, Luncandel.
« Yes, then I’ll take Tonya to the doctor. »
« No. The Tonya brothers have a separate place to go. »
« You have a place to go? Where the hell are you. »
« Mudam. »
« What… what do you mean? »
« Listen to me, brothers. »
When Jin changed his gaze and spoke, the guardian knight was forced to put the Tonya brothers on his shoulder.
« Let’s go. »
The guardian knight began to follow the encampment camp. The place where Jin walked was a small mound in the stormy backyard, where rain and wind.
It was where the Tonya brothers buried the bird they killed yesterday.
The raindrops, which were pouring like a waterfall, had not yet been swept out.
« Put it down here. »
« But Master Jean. « The rain and wind… »
The fierce rain and wind seemed to devour Jin, the guardian knight, and the Tonya brothers.
Jean stared at the guardian without answering.
It meant an order. The guardian knight soon understood Jean’s attitude. It was the attitude of the members of Looncandel when they gave the right order.
I’ve never thought of a seven-year-old being this imperialistic.
The guardian knight had no veto. Even if that’s bad for other Looncandel. The Tonya brothers can’t give orders at the momentarily.
Then we must follow the words of Looncandel, who gave the order.
Whatever happens afterwards, it is a matter of judgment for the housekeeper and elders, not for the guardian knight. If the Tonya brothers died of hypothermia, the family would not hold the guardian responsible.
The struggle between the blood clans was common in Looncandel.
« I’ll take it, Master. »
The guardian knights put the Tonya brothers down in front of the mound. The brothers only flinched intermittently, and showed little reluctance.
About two hours later, the Tona brothers were found and rescued by Gilly, who had just returned.
He suffered from severe pneumonia for several days, and later dared not even make eye contact with Jean until he left the storm.

Eastern Continent, Unprotected Area. commonly referred to as black sea
Siron Looncandel had sat still in this maze of mana, meditating for days.
He was just sitting there, but the near-house-sized mana dared not come near him.
And there is a man who came here with difficulty, struggling to meet such a theory.
« Lady, it’s Khan. »
Ten days ago, he was a guardian knight who left the Tonya brothers in a storm at Jin’s command.
« What’s going on? »
Theor asked, with his eyes wide open.
« I’m here to report on the stormy conflict between the masters. »
« You can’t interfere with my training because of a normal kids’ fight. Talk to me. »
As Khan explained the fight between the Jin and Tonya brothers, Zion smiled.
« So the Tonya brothers are dead? »
« I do have lung disease, but it doesn’t affect my life. »
« Then it must have been a lot of study. Copy that. Back off. »
« Yes. »
For three days, he struggled with the devil to report these few words. But without the slightest sign of resentment, Khan went back the way he had come silently.
‘I’ll have to see the youngest.’
It was a month later that Zion found the storm.
