Recap of ‘Ascendance of a Bookworm’ Season 3 Episode 2
Myne, who has been working tirelessly to get her books into the market and make them accessible to the general public, has now published scripture image texts that are accessible to the general public. Benno, on the other hand, has recently been perplexed by the issue of her safety and that of her family. He invites her to stay in the Cathedral for a while in order to secure her safety.
Myne is understandably upset, and she does not want to be separated from her family. But she realises that staying with them will only put their lives in jeopardy. As a result, she does not dispute Benno’s decision and instantly departs from her house. Her time at the Cathedral is severely limited, and she is not even permitted to use the library.
In addition, Myne has few activities to spend her time, and her servants are constantly surrounding her, observing her every move. To pass the time, she teaches Delia math, and she proves to be a remarkably competent teacher by assisting her students in grasping touch concepts with ease.
Myne offers to help retainers learn everything they need to know, realising that she can educate others at the Cathedral to read and write, increasing the quantity of books available. The attendants, on the other hand, graciously decline the offer. Myne is a little upset because of their reluctance, but when Lutz pays her a visit, she forgets about everything for a few hours.
Her old friend informs her that in the spring, he will be attending a papyrus workshop in a nearby city. His enthusiasm reminds Myne of a conversation she once had with Lutz, in which he confessed that visiting different cities had always been a dream of his. She is overjoyed that he is following his heart and realising his aspirations.
In the weeks that follow, Myne experiences homesickness and lovingly recalls her time with her family. On the pretence of presenting Myne’s ceremonial gown, Benno is summoned to the Cathedral. Karstedt, Ferdinand, Myne, and Benno hold a secret rendezvous once he arrives. Ferdinand starts the conversation by asking if Wolf is the leader of the Ink Guild.
Benno confirms his suspicions, and Ferdinand goes on to say that they have been tirelessly investigating Myne since he signed a deal with him, and have even made Lutz one of their primary targets. Myne emphasises, however, that he was not present when the contract was signed, which was a prudent decision because it gave her some anonymity at the time. Because contract magic cannot be undone without the consent of all parties involved, Wolf can take advantage of it and learn more about Myne in the process.
What was Ferinand’s Adoption Plan in ‘Ascendance of a Bookworm’ Season 3, Episode 2?
Before delving into Ferdinand’s adoption strategy and the reasons behind it, it’s necessary to first understand Wolf’s motivations for exploring Myne and devoting so much time and effort to it. It may be claimed that he wants to keep her, kidnap her, and hold her captive in order to extract knowledge from him in exchange for monetary benefit, as her brilliant ideas have made her partners pretty wealthy in recent years.
However, due to Myne’s bad health, this could end up being a massive failure. As a result, he’ll most likely either sell her or force her into a subordination contract. Furthermore, her vast mana can be exploited for nefarious reasons; thus, Ferdinand’s safety becomes important. He had intended to marry her to a nobleman in the future, but because he couldn’t wait so long, Ferdinand proposes that she be adopted by a nobility. If she agrees, she will receive much-needed protection, and Karstedt is the best person to be her adoptive father.
Despite the fact that the notion appears reasonable, Myne refuses to accept it and becomes so enraged that her mana must be drained to calm her down. She had always been vocal about not wanting to be apart from her family, so leaving them for a period of time to live in the Cathedral was difficult for her.
As a result, expecting aristocrats to adopt her was out of the question. Ferdinand does not question her again and lets her follow her heart, but only if she agrees to join the Royal Academy when she is ten.
