I Will Avoid the Male Lead and Make a Harem 
Vol. 6: I Will Become a Parvenu
Chapter 17


Eventually, Cedric decided to follow my suggestion.

‘I knew it.’

I knew what Cedric would decide from the first time I told him my suggestion.

That his noble pride in never going against his conscience, which is extremely important to Cedric…… would never allow him to gain anything.

‘He’s just too kind. My uncle I mean.’

Cedric has a kinder heart than he looked.

If he was a little rational and cool-headed, he wouldn’t have been poisoned by Camilla in the original story.

In the end, Cedric decided this because of Shannon.

‘Compromise with yourself is difficult at first, but it will become easier in the future.’

When Camilla left, Cedric had to take the position of the family’s head.

Whether it’s the territory, family, Knights of White Eagle, and the whole West.

He had to make countless compromises to get everything covered.

(T/N: If someone compromises themselves or compromises their beliefs, they do something which damages their reputation for honesty, loyalty, or high moral principles.)

“Uncle, are you really not going to get married?”

“I won’t.”

When I heard the firm response, I stuck out my tongue.

“Don’t you have any room for reconsideration?”

Getting married would make things much easier.

As he gains power and has a successor, it is simple to gain the support of the family vassals.

Especially with that face and body, young ladies from the prestigious family in the capital will line up.

‘Shouldn’t I send Cedric’s portrait to the capital instead of mine?’

Even now, Cedric was still popular. Considering he gets more banquet invitations than Camilla.

Though I knew that he wasn’t the type who enjoy socializing.

“I’m not going to marry, Selina.”


Ha… really.

It’s pointless to force him when he despises the idea so much.

I just changed the subject because I was feeling sorry for no reason.

“Uncle, about the sword you treasured, which my mother had previously inquired about…”


“Mother already has it in her hands. Though she would give it to you soon.”

Cedric blinked, as if he didn’t understand, but quickly jumped up from his seat.

“W-wait, for a moment.”

Cedric, who ran out in a hurry, soon returned to the study in contemplation.

It looked like he couldn’t find the sword even when he searched all over his bedroom.

“Valhail took it. You didn’t know!?”


Aha, he didn’t even know he had lost it.

Cedric swept his pale face.

“How in the world did he take it?”

“I heard you were sleeping at the time.”


Cedric was devastated because he didn’t even sense his incident.

Cedric, with a solemn expression on his face, inquired.

“That man… Valhail… He didn’t actually become the Countess’ man, did he?”

His voice conveyed a sense of uneasiness.

That’s understandable.

If a man with absolute force, like Valhail, obey Camilla’s orders, Cedric was in danger of being killed in the night.

In fact, in the original story, Camilla used Valhail to kidnap and torture Selina.

“Don’t be concerned, uncle.”

Because he’s my man.

That absolute force was now no different from mine.


I went to see Shannon, as Camilla had requested.

“What’s going on?”

Shannon was in poor state, perhaps because she starved for days.

“What’s the matter?”


I raised my eyes sharply as I entered the bedroom after closing the door, like a cat abandoned in an unfamiliar place.

“I came to see you. Mother asked me to do it.”

Shannon, who did not have a dedicated maid after Emma left, looked neglected in many ways.

His original brown hair was visible about a knuckle because her dyed blonde hair had faded significantly.

‘She urgently needs to dye her hair roots.’

Her eyes had thread veins, and her lips were all torn from how much she had torn them.

“Are you pleased that I married such a person?”

“What makes you think that?”

Shannon screamed in disgust when I sat on the bed and asked back with a smile.

“You crazy girl! Get the hell out of here!”

Out of her evil habit, Shannon pushed me on the shoulder.

But the moment that rough hand touches me.


Shannon, who was sitting against the headboard of the bed, was engulfed in a roar of flames.

I was about to fall on my butt, but…… my butt only lightly touched the floor.

It happened in an instant.

“Help me! Argh!”


I jumped up, frightened.

Because there was no such thing as a fire extinguisher in this world, I quickly covered her with a blanket.

During the fire safety class, I learned that oxygen can be blocked and the fire can be extinguished.

Ah, it’s hot!”

I burned my hand while tapping hard on the blanket, but thankfully, the fire went out quickly.

“Are you all right?”

Shannon’s face was unharmed, but her arms were severely burned.

‘What the hell is going on here?’
