You definitely called me a daughter earlier.
“Do you remember when you said I was your daughter?”
“Because you called me father, I just matched the beat.”
“Oh, I don’t think so. You’ve never said I’m your daughter.”
Did I hear it right? I hate it.
Edgar has now evaded it. And he looked down at me again with his usual expression.
“Now, I want you to be aware of whose arms you are in.”
“If you don’t want to plunge to the floor, stop babbling.”
I shut my mouth in a hurry. I couldn’t even get up and walk because I had people’s eyes.
If it was Edgar, he really was the person who could let me go, so I calmly climbed into the carriage in his arms.
* * *
It’s been a hell of a day.
It’s been a little late, but Leon will understand this much.
As soon as I got out of the carriage, I tried to go to Leon.
“Come to the office tomorrow.”
Again, again. Call me for no reason.
If I go to Edgar’s office, don’t we always fight?
I didn’t want to go if it wasn’t a big deal.
What are you going to say this time?
“Why don’t you use this wide house?”
Why did you build it so big?
“I don’t know what you mean.”
“If you have something to say, I’ll see you in the garden tomorrow. It would be nice to have a cup of tea.”
I know why he looks like that.
I didn’t expect to be able to drink tea peacefully with Edgar either.
“It’s like a pledge of friendship….”
I smiled awkwardly and said to Edgar.
Just get out of the office. I guess that’s the personality because people are always stuck and working.
“Yes, it is. Tomorrow in the garden….What?”
I didn’t expect you to answer that!
Edgar left me behind and headed for the house, as if he had nothing more to say.
A big smile spread to my face when I blinked my eyes fixed on the spot.
I headed to Leon’s room without changing my clothes.
Knock, knock, knock.
“Leon, I’m here.”
You must have been bored by yourself? How far can I tell you what happened today?
I couldn’t wait to have tea with Leon because I had a lot to tell him.
“Huh? There seems to be a noise coming from inside.”
The fluttering sound? No, I heard something busy moving.
Staring at the door that wouldn’t open, I put my ears close to the door.
“Hmm, isn’t he in there?”
But I think I can hear something.
He couldn’t have gone to training at this hour. I had no choice but to knock on the door again.
Knock, knock, knock.
“Leon, aren’t you in there? Can I come in?”
There was still no answer.
However, I, who was very curious, couldn’t hold back and turned the handle.
Well, I’m sorry to Leon, but it wouldn’t be a bad idea to sneak in and surprise him.
As soon as the door opened with a squeak, I saw Leon standing in front of me breathing heavily.
“What? There you are.”
I thought there was no answer, but Leon stood in front of me as soon as the door opened.
“Sigh, Elle? You’re here already?”
Leon looked down at me, sweeping his hair.
I wonder what he was doing, his forehead was covered with sweat.
“Oh, I just got here. I came running as soon as I got here. What were you doing? There’s no answer.”
“I fell asleep. I think I had a nightmare.”
Leon wrapped his arms around my waist and closed the door.
Trapped by Leon with my back against the door, I reached out and wiped off Leon’s sweat.
“It’s okay, it’s just a dream.”
I don’t know what kind of dream it is, but it must have been terrible for Leon. I thought you were all grown up, but I guess you weren’t either.
Leon’s disheveled shirt and still exposed chest caught my eye.
“Oh, my God.”
You can’t say that out loud! I closed my mouth again and looked up at Leon.
“Elle, did you come straight to me?”
“Yes, I think Leon will wait. If you keep eating cookies, you’ll get sick of it. Let’s have dinner together.”
I said with a big smile.
Meat, you have to cut steak on a day like this.
Leon looked at me quietly and then released me, who had been locked in his arms.
He went to the drawer, took out my handkerchief, and came back.
” When you go out and come home, you have to wash yourself. You might have something dirty on you.”
For some reason, Leon looked upset.
“Oh! Look at my mind.”
I should have washed my hands. I ran too fast.
Worried that it might become a little awkward, I hurriedly brought out the latest story I had heard in the social world.
“Oh, by the way. It was a mess because of the Princess today.”
“Why did he bring her, who was an illegitimate child, into the imperial family?”
It’s a matter of course because she was the heroine.
How much did the emperor sow his seeds? Was there no other illegitimate child?
It must have existed. I’m curious, why did you bring only Janice as a Princess to the Imperial Palace?
“It must have been fun.”
Leon said, wiping my hands. I feel like he’s wiping off my left hand intensively…….
I stopped Leon’s hand with my left hand as soon as I saw a hand that would not leave any germs.
“Well, it wasn’t bad. It’s like going to see people.”
I was a real watcher there.
Although I was noticed by Delter in the middle, I will also be quickly forgotten.
The highlight of today’s banquet was Janice Abel Bonita.
I stared at Leon at Janice’s rising appearance.
I hate to admit it, but they looked pretty good together.
“Elle, you’re more happy with me, aren’t you?”
Was I too excited to talk? Leon’s expression looked bitter.
He couldn’t even go…….
I held Leon’s hand and said firmly.
But you’re the only one I have! I mean, I didn’t make a friend.
“Of course, and everyone hates me.”
It’s all because of my stupid dad.
And there must have been a problem with my actions towards Delter.
“I can’t believe they don’t like you. Surely they must have the wrong eye.”
“Haha. Is that so?”
I couldn’t bear to tell you everything that happened at the banquet hall.
“Oh, Leon couldn’t go, so you must be curious. I’ll save the story.”
That would be the way to hurt Leon less.
“Why did you stop talking?”
“Huh? That’s it, Leon…….”
It’s a consideration, but he doesn’t seem to like it.
He seems to be more upset.
“There’s a secret growing between you and me.”
Leon is a step away from me. His eyes sank into the abyss.
“Leon, that’s not it.”
“I know. Elle is doing this for me.”
So it’s okay.
Leon’s words that said he was fine sounded particularly heartbreaking.
* * *
Leon finally felt relieved when Elle left the room.
He almost got caught going out.
He looked at the handkerchief in his hand and immediately threw it into the trash can.
“He grabbed Elle’s hand.”
Anger soared at Delter’s behavior at the banquet hall.
He was anxious to just let her go and wait quietly.
She’ll stand out in a crowd.
Leon, who sneaked into the banquet hall wearing a mask, bumped into someone.
“Oh, I’m sorry.”
Leon lowered his head in a hurry and passed the woman.
Silver hair, beautifully shining purple eyes.
It was his first time seeing it, but he wasn’t interested. Leon was only looking for Elle.
‘At this rate, She’ll catch my eye.’
Leon quickly tried to hide himself from the crowd.
He just wanted to see what Elle was doing.
It was simple to ask how he got here through the imperial guard.
For trust with the Magic Tower, there was no prohibition against magic in the imperial family. Therefore, So Leon was able to move to the banquet hall with his own power.
He has never been happier of the relationship between the royal family and the Magic tower like today. Because he could see Elle.
Leon was just looking for Elle without paying any attention to the grand imperial party.
However, the woman with silver hair immediately chased after Leon as if she had become interested.
“By the way, where are you from? It’s not even a party.”
The mask must have caught your eye. Leon thought to himself that he should have changed his face and come.
Why is this woman bothering me when no one else is interested in me?
Leon’s face darkened in an instant.
