After a restful sleep, Valery found herself recalling the unusual situation she found herself in. Grateful beyond measure for everything that’s been given to her so far, Valery’s inhibitions slowly fade as she even grows comfortable enough to help out.

She learns more of how the other residents came to be in Welhemia’s mansion, further showing Valery just how trusted Welhemia really is.

There’s a saying that only those who have lived a long and venerable life often say.

“At the end of the day, all the money and power you have in the world is meaningless when you’re dead.”

A saying that couldn’t be any farther from the truth for those who have aged like fine wine, the younger adults of the modern world live and enjoy their decadence, ignorant of the futility of it all in the face of those who lived their lives honestly.

This is a story of a woman who lived her life with everything she could possibly want, faced with the harsh reality that everything you get in life must be earned. A harsh reality that crashes down on her without warning.
