[Main story completed] “Brigid Grimbursty, you’re fired!”
Mrs. Kat, Brigid’s employer’s wife, yelled, handing her a letter and a small box. Brigid got axed from her tutoring job over adultery accusations.
(There’s proof of sexual harassment, so let’s seek penalties and charge the wrongdoer!)
Brigid exited the place, bubbling with excitement.
In reality, Brigid is a reincarnated soul. In her past life, she was an overworked elementary school teacher who died in her thirties. She reincarnated as the fallen lady (mob) from a web novel she used to read.
Her favorite character in the novel is a villain from an orphanage. Raised without love, she eventually meets her end at the hands of the story’s main character.
She vows, “I’ll protect Oshi’s life! I won’t let him become a villain!” She struggles to adopt Oshi, but realizes that she can’t do so if she remains unmarried. To secure Oshi’s future, she uses her money and otaku collectibles to support the orphanage.
Brigid loses her tutoring job due to adultery accusations, but the “Impossible Marquis, who never falls in love,” suggests a fake marriage to become his preferred adoptive parent. With no reason to decline, Brigid eagerly agrees to the ruse.
As time passes, she falls in love with him and is even cherished by the Ironclad Marquis, who once insisted he couldn’t love her as a wife.
This is a story that blends childcare and fantasy, using the knowledge of otakus and teachers in a tale of love and family.
