Regardless of my response, my father visited the nursing villa himself. He didn’t bring any attendants with him as if he wanted me to lower my guard against him. However, he alone could take me down.
The Duke Libera Quilz Reinberg, the strongest Duke of the Empire and one of the four pillars. He is also one of the strongest people in the continent, even making his own (reincarnated) children trembling.
He now entered the old age beyond middle ages, but with his dark brown hair and no wrinkles, he looked like as if he was still in his thirties.
The moment I opened the door and faced my father’s eyes, I thought that lying would not work.
“Are you okay?”
It was useless to continue pretending to be sick in front of my father. He must have already known that I was faking illness from the time I went to the nursing home.
Nevertheless, seeing all the valuable medicinal herbs he brought made me feel a little sick.
Before the relationship between father and son, he was still the duke of the empire. It was considerate of him to come to my room in person, not waiting for me in the meeting room.
I was slightly startled when the news that my father was coming. But I couldn’t help it, he is still my father.
“I don’t want to go back home.”
My father’s delighted expression was crumpled instantly.
“Tell me the reason.”
I hesitated to answer. Then my father looked at me.
“Is it because of your siblings?”
He hit the nail on the head.
When I did not answer, father looked out the window and sighed deeply. It was a sigh of regret. Perhaps, father thought that the reason was “an inferiority complex.” But if it was such a trivial reason, I wouldn’t bother running away here. I couldn’t tell him the real reason.
‘All of your children are evil people who drove the earth to the brink of extinction! And I’m a person on Earth.’ How should I say this?
As the awkward silence continued, my father approached me and held my hand. My father had a caring habit. When I was young, he used to hold my hand and use his ‘Spirit’ power often. It was like that even now. Warm energy enveloped me as if it was encouraging me.
“It’s already been four years. There was even a rumor that I had abandoned you.”
When I looked at my father’s eyes, I lowered my head without realizing it.
“Son, you spent a long time alone. Please know that it was not indifference why I didn’t bother you for the past years. I just wanted you to realize the duties and honor of the nobility yourself.”
As I recall the memories of my previous life at the age of 10, my previous life did not run away from the enemy. Knowing this, I didn’t feel so good.
My father held my hand tightly and continued to talk.
“Your father was a commoner. However, I survived thousands of battlefield with my life on the line, and finally overcame all these difficulties and rose to the position of a duke. That’s why I’m aware of my obligations. We are not the ones standing above. Think about the weight you carry. If Reinberg collapses, who will stop the Ain’s people invasion? Thousands of lives will be at stakes again. Nobles who only know honor do not know the preciousness of life, does not deserve to be at the top. You are already 14 years old. It will soon be your Coming of Age Ceremony, but now you’really…”

I remember that this incident, which cannot be explained by common sense, caused quite a stir in the whole Empire.
The Reinberg family was in a hurry to hide the rumors, but words without feet quickly spread throughout the empire, leaving no one unimformed. People like to talk talked about the Artemis Ritual, they even named us quadruplets ‘Blessed Children of the Moon’.
Rumors subsided over time, but they never hid their worshipping towards us.
The first person to stand out was my older brother. An incident occurred during our swordsmanship class.
The Reinberg family was not famous for its swords, and swordsmanship was nothing more than learning as a liberal arts subject for nobles.
At the age of ten, we were now learning how to swing a wooden sword, and my older brother, like me, was a child being overwhelmed just by swinging a sword.
However, during our first swordsmanship class after the Artemis Ritual, he suddenly beat the instructor who was teaching him.
The reason was that the instructor teaching the swordsmanship was sloppy.
The Blue Wolf Knights, the No. 1 Knights of the Reinberg Ducal Family, who were training at the training ground at that time, witnessed an instructor screaming in front of a sword wielded by a child.
I stood foolishly and watched the absurd situation, far from common sense, happening. A small beat up the heavy knights.
The knights failed to overpower the young child. Rather, they couldn’t even avoid the sword, and they all fainted after being hit on the head.
The knights made excuses later, “I couldn’t fight back because he is the first young master.” Later, Blue Wolf Knights began to attack him sincerely.
No matter how powerful the Reinberg family, we were not a family for swords. But it does not mean that the Knights were weak.
Most of the middle-aged knights were war heroes who gained merit in the worst Great War decades ago, and their practical swordsmanship was refined and inherited, making them strong knights comparable to other swordsmanship masters. However, my older brother, who had been wielding a wooden sword so far, overwhelmed them.
Can the wooden sword wielded by an ordinary 10-year-old kid break an apple?
The wooden sword wielded by a 10-year-old man hit the head of each trained knights.
I couldn’t see his movements. His footwork that took down the knights were faster than the lion.
The child, who eventually knocked out all the knights at the training ground, did not even flinch.
“The knights in this world are very weak.”
At that moment, my suspicion since the Artemis Ritual incident was true.
Is he not going to hide his identity? How can he express his existence so openly?
Like me, he also remembered his past life.
In an instant, the child, who destroyed the Rainberg family’s pride, the Blue Wolf Knights, suddenly glanced at me and began to running towards me with a sword.
This is was the start.
The start of my journey to survival.
* * *
On this day, I broke my ribs, cracked both legs, and lost one molar. Vicious wounds were engraved on my young body.
My first brother remembered his past life like me, and I realized that his past life was “Murim’s Ruler.”
What made me certain he had reincarnated was when I used my ability.
“Heavenly Sky Eye, Activate.”
My ability from my previous life followed me in this life. One of the only abilities evaluated as being able to confront those who invaded the Earth, Heavenly Sky Eye (天眼), also called the Eyes of God.
