I thought it was a joke.
Currently, there are three forces higher than the Emperor that currently controls the Empire.
The Imperial family lost its former glory during the Great War, which broke out due to excessive territorial expansion of the Empire. Right now, it is the Church and two families who are sharing the power of the empire.
One of the Family is the Blue pillar of the Empire, and the other is a famous swordsman, who has been a great family for a long time since before the Empire was established.
Although it may not seem like my father is facing difficulties, the position of being the family head of the Reinberg family means a lot.
The Ducal House of Rainberg is the Shield that prevents the invasion of the northern people of Ain. But what would other nobles and the people of the Empire think if the shield was rusted and broken?
It is purely on my father’s strength that the power of the Ducal Family of Reinberg remains at the top.
“How can I be the shield of the empire?”
“You can do it.”
“I don’t deserve to succeed my father.”
“A lot of people will protest.”
“When I became the lord of Quilz Castle, being born commoner, even the emperor didn’t believe me. The words coming from fools will not harm you.”
Sometimes I couldn’t believe it. The fact that my father, who looked like he is in his mid 30s or late 30s, is actually over 60 years old.
My father said he wanted to get out of the front line and retire.
My old man’s dream is simple. He said that he would like to stay peacefully with mother on the southern island.
Damn, I feel weak whenever I hear anything about my mother.
Come to think of it, I look like a bad guy who only resists…
“I’ve accomplished nothing. Wouldn’t Ranista fit better as the next Duke than me, the scaredy youngest son—”
When I mentioned Ranista, a small smile was immediately plastered my father’s face.
Except for Ranista’s brutality, I’d be proud of him if I were my father and make him the heir. But my father’s idea was different. When he said he would make me his successor, I immediately said my brother’s name in order to remind him who is better.
“There will be a succession battle…My brother might try to kill me.”
As if he had heard a ridiculous joke, my father replied with a chuckle.
“No way. You shouldn’t doubt the bond of your brotherhood. You’re twins, aren’t you?”
That’s why, damn it.
No one will think that I will survive in the succession battle if I have a brother as monstrous as Ranista.
“Father, Ranista is better than me. He is already commanding his own knights. He is also the youngest Commander in the whole Continent. There’s no other person in the Reinberg family that fits being the next head than him.”
Until my father made such a statement, I thought that Ranista was sure to be the next Duke.
In addition to being the eldest son, I have felt in the past few days that even the retainers and the knights already look at him as if he was the current Duke.
At the age of 14, he is already the most powerful man below my father.
Others are already thinking that Ranista will be the future Duke.
My father nodded to my repeated persuasion.
“Each of your siblings has an outstanding talent. As my Child, they will definitely outdo my own achievement in the future and become the best on the continent.”
‘Or be the main culprit of the world’s destruction.’
“But you have something that Ranista doesn’t have.”
“It doesn’t make sense to be the future Duke just because I can see spirits.”
I have never practiced the power of spirituality. Because I always thought there was no need to.
If my siblings regain all the power of their past lives, my father could stop them in the empire, because there was no other one.
“Tsk, you don’t even know yourself, so how can you tell me?”
My father was really becoming an old man.
As I continued to protest, he also continued pushing through his ideas.
“This discussion is over. You will be trained as the successor.”
“I have no intention of changing my mind. Whatever you say, you’re the next head of the Reinberg family.”
My father’s words changed subtly.
“At the age of 18, when the succession ceremony will be held, you have already graduated from the academy and received a successor education. And if you succeed me, do as you please. I don’t care if I appoint Ranista as the next head of the family or run away from the family.”
As soon as I become the head, I have to appoint the next one?
I don’t know in detail, but the succession of a family, even the Duke family, will not be as easy to change like a online game.
“Is that possible?”
My father stood up.
“I’ve been an aristocrat for a long time, and anything is possible with power.”
Then he look at me.
“So don’t run away at least until then.”
I thought about it.
My father is probably going to keep bothering me.
He’ll come after me even if I run back to the southern island.
I also remembered my conversation with Ranista.
‘I’m not your enemy.’
It’s okay. There are many ways to run. Four years, four years, I just need to wait four years.
“I can do whatever I want, you promised me that.”
“I swear on my grace and my soul.”

After sending his son, the Duke of Reinberg said to his spirit.
He soothed the frightened blue wolf by stroking his head.
“It’s okay, he has already gone far. It’s all right.”
The trembling blue wolf gradually regained stability at the touch of Duke Reinberg.
‘It’s an unknown power.’
The Duke looked around. Not only was the blue Wolf terrified, but also the other spirits
Ever since he started communicating with spirit, this was his first time experiencing such case.
‘How can the spirits, who were not afraid of the devil, be afraid of my youngest son?‘
