A great blessing came to the Duke Rainberg’s family. Twenty years after the marriage between Duke Rainberg and Princess Demenia, the expected child was soon to be born.
A grand festival took place for 266 days at the Quilz territory, controlled by Duke Rainberg. The news of the birth of the blue pillar of the empire, the successor of the Duke Rainberg, has become a hot topic in the entire continent.
Many visited Quilz Castle to celebrate the blessing to Duke Rainberg, a virtuous imperial nobleman and the Best Wizard of the whole continent.
As the date of birth approached, Duke Rainberg had no choice but to be nervous.
In particular, his wife’s swollen belly was twice as large as the other pregnant women, so he was worried about any mishaps. He invited outstanding Doctors along with the protection of the church and waited for the childbirth date under the blessing of the Priest.
However, as if laughing at the anxious Duke’s heart, the moment of blessing did not come even after the birth date.
It was supposed to be after 266 days and now it was over 300 days.
When the feeling of ominousness begins to appear in Rainberg. Fortunately, the Duchess’ labor finally began.
Duke Rainberg prayed to the gods and tried to share the pain by staying beside his wife giving birth.
Demenia, titled as the ‘royal daughter of the Empire and an unbroken flower. Having been firm and strong, she was now screaming in pain.
The couple have known each other. She was always confident, but seeing her appearance right now, the Duke Rainberg felt heart broken seeing the weak appearance of his wife for the first time.
“I feel like my whole body is going to break, Rainberg! How much trouble our child will beee!!! Bothering his mother… Oh my god!”
“My wife, I love you so much. After this child is born, we will never have a child again. This child will become the best knight and a wise man, so he will surely be the star of the empire. Oh, I wish I could take your pain instead!”
“Is this how my mom felt? If it’s for the child, I…”
“Don’t think like that! You have me.”
The Duke Rainberg was still nothing more than a commoner-turned-noble, and the two had been in love since they met each other. Because Demenia was the royal daughter of the Empire and a child born by killing her mother.
Even though they haven’t got a child, their love has not changed for decades.
Right now, the Duke Rainberg felt uneasy. They hadn’t had a child for a long time because he knew that the label “child of misfortune born after killing her mother” bothered her. Did that meant that the misfortune will continue?
“If someone is listening me from the underworld, please forgive me. She deserves to have children!”
The duke held his wife’s hand tightly and used his power to try relieving the pain his wife was bearing. If the queen hated her child and hoped to relieve her anger, he vowed to pursue her to the underworld and take revenge.
The pain continued throughout the whole day.
The Duchess lost her mind several times, but opened her eyes full of determination.
When experienced midwives predicted the death of the mother and child, the duke put all his strength into saving his wife.
In one day, even he, the empire’s number one Wizard who could defeat countless of monsters, was dried up like a monk who fasted for days.
“Our child… I think our child will be born.”
Was the sky be touched by their hard work?
At the dawn of day, when the cold wind was blowing, a miracle occurred
“Call the Midwives!”
Two midwives ran toward the room, and the priest, who was waiting outside the door, recited the prayer and Doctors began to take out medicine just in case.
The mother’s stomach begins to flinch at the child’s struggle. The wife poured out all her strength, and Duke Rainberg desperately hoped for the survival of both of his beloved.
Finally, a newborn child cry was heard in the hands of the midwife.
“Congratulations. He is a healthy boy.”
The Duke, who felt resentment for the child for harassing his mother, shed tears at the crying of the child who cried loudly.
The midwife carefully handed the child wrapped in a clean blanket into her arms.
“My child. My lovely baby.”
“You’ve been bothering your mother so much, you punk. He is the biggest child I’ve ever seen. I guess he’s trying to be a blacksmith.”
It was time for Demenia to look at the child with a benevolent smile.
Suddenly, her expression hardened.
The midwife also noticed an unexpected incident and shouted.
“Is she still in labor?”
Was it a sign of twins?
Duke Rainberg was stunned by the unexpected situation, nevertheless his second child’s birth was smooth.
“Oh, congratulations. She is a healthy girl.”
The duke laughed with sincere joy now. They’ve been struggling so much, and they were blessed with twins! However, the wife’s stiff expression still remained, and as the midwife moved busily, she noticed something strange.
At that time, the midwife moved in a hurry.
“The third child has been born. She is also a healthy girl.”
He was happy. He was definitely happy and proud. But now, he gradually felt a different emotion.
At that time, the cry of a loud child, amidst the conflicted emotions of the Duke.
“The fourth child is a boy.”
“Midwife, have you ever seen someone birthing 4 children at once?”
“I’ve been a midwife for 40 years, but I’ve never encountered this situation.”
Quadruplets were born to the Ducal Family of Rainberg.
