Trash of the Count’s Family – Chapter 67 – Wasn’t Supposed to Be Like This (4)

That odd sensation continued until Cale arrived at the dinner table. All he said was one sentence.

“I will be visiting the Whipper Kingdom for a bit.”


The spoon in the hand of his youngest sister, the 7-year-old Lily, fell to the ground. Cale turned to look at Lily after hearing the noise only to see Lily with a pale face and the corners of her lips shaking.

“My teacher said.”

Lily didn’t even think about picking up the spoon as she continued to mumble.

“The Whipper Kingdom is very scary right now and people die every day. The nobles have to hide and it is even hard to eat yummy food! You can’t even sleep in peace! That is what my teacher said!”

Her emotions seemed to be getting stronger as she continued to speak. She then started to frown after looking toward Cale.

“You are not allowed to do that.”

Count Deruth cut Lily off and sternly answered. Cale looked toward Deruth with confusion. The crown prince had promised assistance during his travel to the Whipper Kingdom so that he could safely and stealthily get there.

‘We will tell your family that you are doing my bidding. There’s no need to tell them about the mages or Magic Tower or anything of the sort, right?’

‘Of course. Secrets are the best. I also only want my family and the Ubarr territory liege to know of my travels.’
‘Naturally. I will have it all prepared.’

Crown prince Alberu then immediately informed Count Deruth that it was a secret mission that he had tasked for Cale.

“Father, it is an order from his highness, the crown prince.”
“It doesn’t matter.”

The good-natured and average looking Count Deruth’s face was extremely scrunched up in a frown. Cale looked around to Basen, who was stiff like time had frozen, and then to the only person who looked calm, Violan.
She casually asked once they made eye contact.

“Is this your own decision?”
“Yes. I wish to go.”

Violan put her spoon down and continued to speak.

“You know it is dangerous over there?”

Cale lightly agreed. However, it would be fine with Choi Han, the Black Dragon, Rosalyn, and Lock. Even Hilsman and the 10 Wolf Children were passionately asking him to take them with him, so he didn’t think he would be in danger at all.

“Cale, just remember one thing. I am always worried about you, my son. We all worry about you. However.”

Violan’s gaze suddenly turned sharp.

“We don’t care about this kingdom at all.”
“Ahem, wife, we need the kingdom to be safe for our family to be safe as well.”

Deruth stopped frowning and let out a fake cough. However, Violan ignored it and continued to ask Cale.

“Is this your decision?”

Violan asked the same question once more and Cale immediately responded back.

“I am a Golden Turtle.”

Count Deruth recalled what he had said to his son not too long ago.

‘We protect anything and everything with our very sturdy shell. However, the most important thing is to protect ourselves.’

He looked toward his son, who seemed calm and relaxed.

“It is most important for me to use my sturdy shell to protect myself.”

That was Cale’s answer.

“I am a Henituse after all.”

Of course, Cale put his own safety first. He would only step into a battlefield if it looked like they would definitely win, and he had the strongest person on the battlefield next to him.

“You don’t need to worry.”

His voice was full of certainty and his gaze was confident. Countess Violan started to smile.

“Alright, I understand. But I do not think I can stop worrying. That is what it means to be a parent.”

There really wasn’t a reason to worry, but Cale nodded at Violan anyways. Count Deruth kept his mouth shut as they restarted their meal. Based on how he was not telling Cale that he could not go, it seemed like he had accepted it as well.

“They think we’ll do anything they order us to do because we have been staying low for a while.”

Count Deruth just mumbled to himself as he roughly chewed on a piece of a meat every so often. However, seeing as how there was no more opposition, Cale peacefully focused on his meal again.

He was focusing on his meal intensely, such that he did not notice what happened next.

He didn’t see that the gaze shared between Count Deruth and Countess Violan was not normal. He also didn’t know that after dinner, Count Deruth ordered the butler to secretly gather any and all information related to the crown prince and the Whipper Kingdom, regardless of the cost.

Cale just finished the great meal and left the dining room. He could hear someone rushing toward him, although this was against the nobles’ etiquette.


It was Basen and Lily who chased after Cale.

“…Hyung-nim, must you go?”
“Pretty much.”

He didn’t need to go, but he just preferred 10 years of peaceful days rather than just one day. Cale continued to speak to his two quiet siblings.

“Both of you need to focus on your studies and training. I can only go around like this because the two of you are here holding things down.”

Cale was always at peace knowing Basen would become the next liege of the territory and Lily the commanding officer for the military. At least they wouldn’t have the typical drama plotlines of the eldest son and the more talented younger son fighting for the successor position nor something of the sort.

Cale turned away from the siblings who were still just quietly watching him. He still had a lot to prepare. Cale started to walk away as he spoke to his siblings again.

“I will bring you both some souvenirs from the Whipper Kingdom.”

Cale could not see that Basen and Lily’s gazes were focused on Cale before exchanging glances with each other and nodding their heads. He had absolutely no idea that his younger siblings had already decided their future occupations.

A few days later, Cale was happy that he was able to get on the ship at exactly the time he planned to do so.

“Young master Cale.”

Cale looked toward the source of the voice as soon as he got on the ship.

“Young lady Amiru.”

Amiru quietly observed Cale, who was still just as relaxed as before. The Ubarr liege had already gotten on the same boat as the crown prince, so Amiru had ordered for them to prepare the largest and strongest ship as soon as she received the crown prince’s order. ( Being on the same boat is a metaphor for being on the same side. )

“Young master Cale, I hope that you return safely without hurting yourself this time.”
“I hope for the same as well.”

He had absolutely no plans to get hurt. Cale could see that Amiru started to frown like she didn’t believe him.

“I do not understand why his highness would send you to that dangerous place when you just finished your recovery. However, his highness is probably sending you because it is you, and he can trust you.”

Trust? The crown prince was not the type to trust anyone. Cale had no problem honestly saying that with a stiff expression.

“Really? I’m not so sure. He didn’t seem to trust me much at all.”

Amiru raised her voice at Cale’s bitter smile.

“Of course! Young master Cale, if it means anything, I trust you.”
“Ah, yes, well, thank you very much young lady Amiru.”

Seeing Amiru respond so fiercely, which was opposite her calm demeanor, Cale could not say anything else. He then started to walk again as they needed to leave on time. He had people he needed to meet.

“Young master Ca-.”
“I’ll be on my way now, young lady Amiru.”

Amiru had some other things to say, but just closed her mouth. The image of Cale pushing back his red hair that was moving along with the ocean breeze was both refreshing and cool.

Cale got on the ship with a relaxed heart after seeing that Amiru was no longer trying to hold him back. He got on the deck and could see that the village was very noisy with construction right now.

Furthermore, some of the other whirlpools had disappeared, creating a safe path that was wide enough for a large ship.

‘But the rest of the whirlpools are still the same.’

Cale turned his gaze back to the ship and started to sigh.


How did he end up with so many people?

Choi Han, Lock, and Rosalyn.
The kittens, On and Hong, were shaking because they were on water yet were adamant that they would come with him.
Hans, who was next to the kittens.
Finally, Vice Captain Hilsman, who was completely pale because he was on a ship, Beacrox, who was observing Hilsman silently, and the ten Wolf children next to him.

‘If I get hurt with all of these freaks around me, that would be very surprising.’

Someone might even think he was trying to go destroy a kingdom right now.

– I like the smell of the ocean.

Why would he fear anything, especially with the Black Dragon coming along as well?

Cale gave an order to the group, who were all looking at him.

“Let’s go.”


The horn sounded their departure across the Ubarr sea. The ship was disguised as a trade ship. Well, that wasn’t really a disguise.

‘It is a trade I am making after all.’

But it will naturally not be a fair trade. It would be very beneficial for Cale, but unfair for the other party.

– Human, do not smile like that. You look like you are going to scam someone again.

He could hear the Black Dragon’s voice, but chose to ignore it and enjoy the refreshing ocean breeze. Just like that, the ship started to head for the Whipper Kingdom’s smallest port.

Later that night.

Cale was not sleeping but standing on the deck. It was close to midnight, so nobody else was on the deck, but the deck was lit up and the full moon made it not dark at all.

He was planning to meet some guests here tonight.

Cale leaned on one of the railings as he calmly looked out to the ocean. It was at that moment.


The Black Dragon revealed himself and approached Cale. There was no need to be invisible because nobody else was here right now.

“I was just wondering…”

The Black Dragon seemed to have a lot on his mind. No, he seemed very suspicious as he blankly looked Cale up and down.

“…Is the name you are thinking of a random word?”
“What the hell are you talking about?”

The Black Dragon seemed very concerned.

“I feel like you will pick something like Black or Dragon.”
“Ah, your name?”

The Black Dragon was talking about his name. Cale made a very serious expression at the 4-year old’s very concerned question.

“…Is a name like that not very good?”

Cale’s expression was very serious. The Black Dragon had not seen Cale look so serious for a while now. The Black Dragon’s eyes started to shake as he urgently responded.

“Not at all! I am fine with anything! It is fine as long as you give me a name, human! Do not worry!”

His wings were fluttering rapidly, and his tail was shaking as he strongly appealed to Cale. Cale’s expression instantly turned normal like he was never serious at all.

“Then I am glad.”

He then casually continued on.

“Raon, On and Hong would have been sad if they heard what you said.”

Silence suddenly filled the area.

“…Human, what did you just say?”

Cale had actually thought a lot about the Black Dragon’s name, contrary to the Black Dragon’s expectation. A name was a special thing given to someone. For Kim Rok Soo who had to live on his own, the only thing that was given to him by his parents was his name.

“Your first name is Raon.”

Raon. It meant joyful in pure Korean. ( Apparently there are some words that are, ‘pure,’ Korean and not referencing Chinese at all. There are only so many of these words, but the author is choosing to use it for the Dragon’s name. )

“And your last name is Miru.”

Miru. Pure Korean for Dragon.

Joyful Dragon. It was a funny name, but Cale had come up with it with full sincerity. He was worried that Choi Han might be suspicious of a pure Korean name, but he had come up with an excuse for that as well.

A calm voice reached the Black Dragon’s ears. However, The Black Dragon had never seen such an expression on Cale’s face before. A calm smile was on Cale’s face right now.

“I came up with this name in the hopes that you will be happy and live a joyful life.”
“…What does it mean?”

The Black Dragon asked Cale for the meaning of the name. Cale pointed to the Black Dragon with his index finger.


Raon and Miru. Neither of these words existed in this world. There was only one thing these two words stood for in this world.

“It is you. They are words just for you and only you.”
“…Only me?”

Cale started to smile as he patted the Dragon’s head.

“Since you are a great and mighty dragon.”
“…Only me ……”

The Black Dragon mumbled to himself for a while before patting away Cale’s hand from his head and stretched out his wings. His wings were fluttering rapidly as he snorted.

“I guess it is useful. I will do you a special service and use this name.”
“Sure, Raon.”

The Dragon started to scrunch his nose. The corners of his lips were twitching as he flew up into the air.

“I am the great and mighty Raon Miru.”
“Yes, Raon.”
“Right. I am Raon.”

The Black Dragon had received a first name and a last name after four years of life. He now had something other than his body that belonged to just him. The Dragon raised his head.

He could see the darkness of the night sky that was different from the darkness inside the cave. It was a night like this when he had been rescued from the cave. The Black Dragon, Raon, would never forget that moment. He also felt like he would never forget this moment either.

Cale raised his head like the Black Dragon. The night sky was the same no matter where he went. He could hear Raon’s voice as he blankly continued to stare at the sky.

“Thank you, Cale.”

Cale looked toward Raon with surprise. However, The Black Dragon was already back to normal.

“Human, how is it that you cannot understand the first time?”
“Why don’t you say it once more?”

Cale started to smile as he tried to pat Raon’s head. Raon headbutted the palm and strongly objected.

“No. I really, truly, absolutely will not! Weak human, go inside and sleep! You will catch a cold.”

However, contrary to his actions, Raon’s wings were fluttering and his tail was wagging like On and Hong. Cale quietly laughed at Raon’s appearance. The quietly laughing Cale was very visible, even though it was night time and they were out in the ocean.

“I think it will be difficult to go back in.”
“Why is it diff-.”

Raon suddenly stopped talking before looking out into the ocean. He was looking at a spot far from the ship.


The water parted as a large existence slowly showed itself.
It was a Whale.
It was at that moment.


Someone urgently shot out from inside the ship and was rushing toward Cale at a very fast pace. It was Choi Han. Choi Han had a worried expression as he inspected the existence that was slowly revealing themselves. He then turned to look at Cale and approached him.


It was then that Choi Han could see it.

Cale was waving at him to go away with a very annoyed expression. The Dragon Raon then scoffed at Choi Han and started to speak.

“They are not enemies.”

Choi Han turned to look back at the ocean. At the same time, Cale stopped leaning on the railing and bowed his head toward the ocean.

It was not just one Whale. There were three Whales coming to them.
The guests had arrived.
One was Witira, the Humpback Whale. The other was a Killer Whale. And finally.

“I greet the Whale King.”

Cale greeted the largest of the three, a Humpback Whale, the Whale King.

    I love how much the Henituse family cares for Cale, they’re willing to refuse orders from the crown prince and Basen and Lily decided their future careers to support Cale as the count, it’s too good

    1. Bobby

      It was deduced that the original chose to act like trash, but actually have a working brain. His objectives were unknown, but it seemed related to his blood mother’s early death.
      MC deduced the original chose to get beaten up by the hero because he understood him. As if he chose to become the hero’s stress reliever.

  2. Gbporto

    Thank you for the chapter. This novel is so good. I also like the care the Henituse family shows for Cale, but it feels a bit strange. In the novel that our MC read, it doesn’t feel like the Count Deruth was that supportive of Cale after getting beaten. I’m sure there will be an interesting reason for that.

  3. bekori

    Raon, a good name! Also like the family dynamics here, I wonder how the previous Cale was really like?

    Thanks for the chapter!

  4. hell0mIa

    [Cale could not see that Basen and Lily’s gazes were focused on Cale before exchanging glances with each other and nodding their heads. He had absolutely no idea that his younger siblings had already decided their future occupations.]

    Oh my, I wonder what siblings have in their plans!

    Finally, I got to know how Raon name came to be, and it kind of shows how much Cale feels towards the black dragon aka Raon Miru is even if he isn’t aware of that himself!😭😂

  5. slackerhr

    La familia Henituse… me gusta analizar más de ellos. Cale Henituse era alguien bastante interesante, ¡pero quiero averiguar más de su familia! La tortuga dorada sigue siento muy misteriosa e interesante para mí~

  6. ThatYoungNobleLady

    I just love how the Henituse family cares a lot towards Cale–Violan specifically, she really loves and cares for Cale even though the past years that they didn’t interact with each other, the motherly love is there…it just makes my heart happy~

    And~ finally HAHAHAHA the name is revealed~ Cale really cares for the dragon even if he denies it. Everything with this chapter just makes my heart happy and go in a roller coaster ride of emotions HAHAHAHA

    [ Dear Fellow re-readers, please do not put spoilers in the comment section so that others can also enjoy the thrill and the excitement throughout the story. It will disrupt the fun if you post spoilers so please do not put any spoilers that may hint them about the future chapters\(⌒▽⌒) ]

    Thanks for the translation~!

  7. CambridgeCat

    “Not at all! I am fine with anything! It is fine as long as you give me a name, human! Do not worry!”

    Omg, Raon is so 🥰 cute

  8. A Certain Novel Gourmand

    So, here’s the thing. He only reaced volume 5 of that novel. Who knows what happened it the next few/more volumes? It’s possible that the coun, his father, is more powerful than he thinks. He literally wanted to ignore a crowned prince’s order. Also, Our mc didnt inherit the memories of the former Cale. There’s no way that his siblings would show love for him if he really was a “trash” he’s described to be. I just hope that Cale (the mc not, not the original Cale) sees how people seems to be magnetized to him.

    1. Oishii Watermelon

      Doesn’t he have it, Cale’s past memories. It was explained when he talked to Billos about his change in attitude, and how he found out the old Cale was acting like trash in a sober state.
      Yeah i could be wrong
      Sorry if it’s hard to understand, I use google translate.

  9. Camellia

    “We don’t care about this kingdom at all.”
    Such a power move by someone who I had not thought of as fam before. Srsly starting from this point I stan one Countess Violan.

    He would only step into the battlefield if it looked like they would definitely win, he said.
    You know, like a liar.

    Cale: *trying to pat Raon’s head
    Raon: *headbutt the palm
    that’s so cute aaaa

  10. Soju

    This chapter never fails to make me emotional god (༎ຶ ෴ ༎ຶ) Raon Miru, the great and mighty dragon

  11. dvl

    “I came up with this name in the hopes that you will be happy and live a joyful life.”

    “It is you. They are words just for you and only you.”
    “…Only me?”


  12. Nia

    I just realized. Everytime Raon says “I am Raon” it will be mean “I am happy”

    He will always say that he is happy😭 this is so wholesome

    1. thefarshore

      Choi Han was isekai’d there body and soul, after which point he stopped aging (or his aging is super duper slow), which is why he still looks like he’s 17 years old despite being stuck in the Forest of Darkness for decades.

      Unlike Kim Rok Soo, who transferred into Cale Henituse’s body.

  13. MildOtaku87

    YESSSSSS, named at last, way to go Raon!!! 😭😭😭 Such a sweet chapter!!

    Also- ppfffftt, classic Cale move to be annoyed at Choi Han’s concern for his safety when Cale’s the one who, as usual, kept information to himself and didn’t feel the need to notify others that, ya know, the WHALE KING was paying him a visit 🤣

  14. 1woo

    [ “Your first name is Raon.”
    “And your last name is Miru.”

    Cale raised his head like the Black Dragon. The night sky was the same no matter where he went. He could hear Raon’s voice as he blankly continued to stare at the sky.

    “Thank you, Cale.” ]

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA this chapter is one of my fav!! oh and i hope there will be no cuts in manhwa ver. like i wanna see cale and raon’s wholesome scene 😭😭😭

  15. Fishy

    “We don’t care about this kingdom at all.”
    “Ahem, wife, we need the kingdom to be safe for our family to be safe as well.”

    Although Cale is a changeling they do seem like his actual parents)
    Also, happy for Raon) It is a mighty heartwarming scene)

  16. Selling Eruhaben’s Gold Dust 4 Clear Skin

    This is the reason why I marked this chapter as one of my favourites ;-;. So many things happening starting from Cale’s family (go mama Vio and Papa Deru!) to Raon being named to soon freaking meeting one of the coolest and funniest (don’t forget NORMAL and SANE) character in this novel, Archie XDDDD

    And looking at the comment section about Raon’s name makes me wanna cry all over again. My precious and baby Raon, I hope there will never come a time where your name will not make you feel happy or else imma isekai and make a deal with the goD and beat someone’s @$$ ;-;

  17. Silvermoon

    Kyaaaa the moment Raon got his name!! Rereading this hits more in the feelings…. Cale is officially the parent figure for the children now~

  18. A little theory.

    I’m convinced now. His family cared for him even while acting as trash. And I imagine it truly started when Past Cale reassured Basen he was a Henituse. It was also stated that Past Cale also never hurt anyone and never bothered his family while drunk. He was hard to deal with, but they still cared for him.
    Another point is that the stepmother calls him her son and considers herself his parent. Otherwise, it would be kinda retarded that she can go from disliking to “my child” in the span of two months and a little over a week while not interacting a whole lot with the family. He what? Bought a souvenir for his siblings and quoted his stepmother once. Yeah, they cared even as he was total trash.

    It explains why, they can show how much they care so quickly. Why, the younger siblings want to support him. The only reason I think the affection is so different between the two is that Past Cale would fight their affection while the reincarnated one doesn’t.

  19. Black Sun

    This chapter is packed with impactful scenes:

    Violan acting like a boss, “We don’t care about the kingdom at all.”

    Raon desperately reassuring Cale that any name he’s given will be okay. I find it hilarious that Raon was worried that Cale would name him “Black” or “Dragon” and it turns out his last name actually does mean “dragon”, lol.

    Raon immediately trying to act arrogant after receiving his name, all the while wagging his tail and fluttering his wings. Super cute.

    So much to love. In this chapter and in the idea that there is so much more to come.
