o run away from and no energy left to run away.

 

It was a great disaster.

 

While I was staring at the man with an alert appearance, the man started speaking.(Jake’s pov)

 

“You! Do you know how desperately the lady is looking for you guys!”

 

Lady?

 

***

 

‘None of them are here.
They are really nowhere to be found.’

I’ve looked around the orphanage.
I even went to the entrance of the slums, but I couldn’t find the children.

 

I thought they were in there.
Should I go inside and find them? Or should I call the police now?

 

I tried to think of another way, but I couldn’t think any other way.
My mind was blank as a white sheet of paper.

 

Suddenly, I remembered a memory of a long time ago when the orphanage went bankrupt and all the children were getting scattered.

 

– “I don’t want to go, sister.
Can’t you live with me forever? You said you would be my mom.”

 

“………I’ll have to look it up again.”

 

The emotions of loss and remorse of that time came to me again, I forced myself to get up.

 

Then at that moment, a man’s loud voice came from over the alley.


 

“Lady! Here you are! I found the children!”

 

At the sound of him shouting that he had found the children made me move like I was possessed.
My legs, which had lost their strength, were starting to walk while getting faster and faster.

 

Following the voice, I went deep into the alley, and I was frozen when I saw them.

 

“……you guys.”

 

There really were the children.

 

The moment I saw that, my emotions soared.
At first I was angry, then I was sad because of the reason why they ran away.

 

“Thank god…… I’m glad that you’re okay……”

 

I was so relieved.

 

After suppressing my emotions, I finally sat down and hugged the children recklessly.

I felt that the embarrassed children were frozen, but now I was relieved that I found the children safely.

 

I don’t know how long I’ve been embracing the children.
When one of them procrastinated and tried to get out of my arms, I came back to my senses and quickly loosened my hands and arms.

 

The children backed away with awkward faces.
Now, there was an awkward atmosphere.

 

I forgot for a moment in relief that I found the children.
I remembered the relationship between Sielra and the children, it wasn’t a friendly relationship enough to embrace each other.

 

I was worried that this action might cause the children to build a wall before me, but fortunately, it didn’t seem like it.
It just seemed like they were uncomfortable with it.

 

My mouth was bitter, but I couldn’t help it.
Because it’s not possible to get close so soon.

 

  

I turned to Jake.

 

“Jake, tell me.
Why the hell did you run away from the orphanage?”

 

Even though I could tell without hearing the answer, I still asked.

 

They ran away because of me.
I felt dizzy by the fact that I had to ask this question even though I knew the answer.

 

But the answer back was not what I expected.

 

“Ren is sick.”

 

It wasn’t Jake or Cloran, who answered.
It was Rodi, who was at the back and was nearly invisible answered.

 

“Ren is sick?”

 

Surprised by the unexpected words, I rose and looked beyond the children.

 


For a moment my mind was blank.

 

“Wait! Oh my god.”

 

And only then, Ren, who was lying on the floor and breathing hard, came into my view.

 

Her face was red and her breathing was not normal.
The breath was so hot that I could even feel it standing a little far from her.

 

“Since when was she like this?”

 

I quickly picked up Ren.

 

She was so light that I didn’t even feel like I was holding her.

 

The body temperature I felt over her clothes was very hot.
Chloran approached me on guard as I hugged Ren.
He seemed to think that I was going to hurt Ren.

 

It was Jack who responded by restraining Chloran.

 

“Her fever started to rise not long after the director went out.
We tried to lower the temperature on our own, but it only got worse…….”

 

“And we were about to go to the doctor.”

 

To Jake’s words, the girl continued to answer.

 

“The medicine……”

I tried to say something, but soon I closed my mouth.
There is no way there is such a thing as medicine in such a poor environment.

 

I got up with Ren in my arms.
And said to the coachman who stood and watched the situation.

 

“I’m sorry.”

 

“But you can take me to a clinic, right?”

 

The coachman replied tactfully.
I nodded with sincerely thankful eyes.

 

“Would it be possible for you again to give us a ride in the carriage?”

 

“I have served the lady all day, so of course! Please wait for a moment.
I’ll hurry up and bring the carriage!”

 

Gradually, I felt sorry for treating the coachman coldly.
As the coachman went out of the alley to bring the carriage, I looked around at the children.

 

What should I do with all these kids now?

 

I am going to take Ren to a doctor, but I can’t take all of these children…… And Rodi is still young.

 

The children who noticed my troubled thoughts gulped down.
Jake stepped forward.

 

“I’ll take the children back to the orphanage.”
