Chapter 62 – The Duke’s Heiress vs Abandoned Woman’s Counterattack (2)
Gu Shengyin was lying on a bench in a white rose garden and received the memory from the system.
“So…my first priority is to save lives.” The first few worlds were relatively moderate developments. She did not expect this world to be so savage.
The system sounded without any waves: “Yes, host. The system has detected that you are 13 years old and the cannon fodder is 10 years old. At this time, she has gotten the necklace with the sealed Demon King and is on the way to Wangdu.”
Gu Shengyin was silent for a moment before asking: “System, if I face the Demon King now, what are the probability of me defeating him?”
The system answered honestly: “None.”
Gu Shengyin: “…”
She twiddled her fingers, should she or should she not tell the archbishop that Eve had a necklace with the sealed Demon King?
The system ruthlessly poured cold water: “I do not recommend the host to do so. You never left Wangdu, so you can not explain how you came to know this thing. If the host really does so, you will likely be treated as a heretic with Eve and be wiped out.”
Gu Shengyin could only abandon this exciting idea.
“Your Highness, the Second Prince came to see you.” There was a maid that stepped forward to awaken Gu Shengyin, who had her eyes closed.
(T/N: Raws had ‘Your Highness’ even though she’s not part of royal family nor has she inherited the title Duke yet, so…)
Gu Shengyin rose gracefully, nodded to the maid and walked toward the living room.
“Veronica!” Far away, there was a young man who called out to her.
Veronica walked towards him without any hurry. Facing him, she gave a standard noble courtesy: “His Highness Second Prince.”
The handsome young man’s eyebrows wrinkled immediately: “I told you many times, Veronica. You don’t have to be courteous in front of me.”
Gu Shengyin’s face did not change: “Your Highness, ceremonies can not be abandoned.”
Prince Lifman helplessly said: “All right, Veronica. Your father, Lord Duke, has taught you too old-fashioned rules.”
Gu Shengyin’s expression turned solemn: “Your Highness, please do not criticize my elders.”
Lifman looked at the girl in front of him.

The 13 year old girl had grown tall and her body had begun to show her shape. The heiress of the White Rose family had bright, golden blond hair. Her eyes seemed to be the purest green gemstones. The milky skin was inherited from her mother, the Duchess of White Rose, and possessed delicate petal-like lips.
Being able to hear his name from her mouth was simply a pleasure.
‘The Pearl of the Empire’, Lifman did not know how many times he had heard the children of nobles secretly talking about the Duke’s heiress. She resembled her white rose family emblem, a dazzling and enchanting person.
Lifman looked at Veronica’s little face that had a serious expression and inwardly sighed. The Duke of White Rose was famous in the Empire. He also taught this unique daughter these virtues: old-fashioned, observance of rituals, every move was standard like how it was written in textbooks.
“What has Your Highness come to find me for?” Gu Shengyin asked.
Lifman recollected himself and remembered his purpose for visiting.
“The purebred Siamese cat that my mother raised gave birth to three kittens. I came over and brought you one. Do you like it?” Lifman gently raised a delicate basket as if it was a treasure.
The cloth above the small basket was opened and Gu Shengyin saw the creature inside.
