Although I Am Supposed to Be the Villainess (Planned), I Just Want to Eat Confectionery – I Will Aim for a Peaceful Life with the Block Skill
Chapter 17: My new home is…
On that day, I finished packing my belongings and had nothing left to do.
It’s not that there was nothing to do, but the servants who kept coming to watch me made it impossible for me to feel like writing to summarize the gist of what’s been going on.
If I carelessly let something slip and my father found out, it would be terrible.
So first, I tried playing a random song in my room.
I went out to the garden pretending to practice the violin, but I couldn’t bring myself to do anything… I thought.
Out of anxiety and tension, I chose a farewell song.
Ah, I want to quickly say goodbye to my father and this house.
From such a desire, I became passionate about playing the song.
One of the servants who was listening didn’t seem to understand the meaning, but the expression of the butler who came to see what was going on was worried.
But it’s okay. There’s a high possibility that I won’t see this butler again in any form.
But if I continue playing the song, my fingers will start to hurt.
I’m not practicing every day like a musician, so my fingertips became red from the strings that dug into them.
So I opened a book that was like a prophecy for me and decided to read it again if I wanted to continue the story
As I was doing this, it became dinnertime, and after eating, Katie watches.
“My Lady, are you all right?”
She cares for me kindly.
I feel like crying. If God sent Katie to me because he wanted to put at least one kind human being by my side as a reward for my good deeds so far… It’s okay to believe in God.
“I’m fine. I don’t hate leaving this house. If I can spend it peacefully, I’m happy enough.”
That’s why I blurted out my true feelings.
“So don’t worry about it, Katie. I’m happy.”
After smiling, Katie looked like she was about to cry… I didn’t understand it at the time, but I realized later.
“It was like a heroine enduring tragically in a tragedy.”
A self-mocking smile floats up.
It doesn’t suit me at all. I think so, but Katie probably took it that way.
I was a little sorry.
The next morning.
The butler came after breakfast.
I thought that since he had also allowed me to have a meal that day, he wouldn’t transfer me to a place that was so terrible, but I waited for the butler’s words.
The butler told me with a blank expression.
“The preparation for the villa is complete, so please prepare for your outing.”
“Which villa has been decided?”
“A carriage for luggage is also ready, so please make sure you don’t forget anything in your room.”
As always, the butler leaves without answering my question.
Sighing, I ask the three servants, including Katie who was there.
“I’d like to change my clothes.”
The luggage is the one that was gathered yesterday, so it’s fine to take it along.
Even though it’s called a villa, there are many in distant territories and the capital. I don’t know where I plan to go, but I changed into a dress and shoes for going out.
Then I get on the carriage that was prepared.
Katie and the butler follow me. The butler rides in the carriage for luggage, but Katie accompanies me in my carriage.
Katie looks pale, so I think maybe and ask in the carriage that has started moving.
“Katie…are you saying that you are going to move to a villa with me?”
“Yes…that’s how it is. I was ordered suddenly this morning…”
If you’re forced to move from the main house with the cursed daughter…you’ll be worried about what happens next.
“I’m sorry, Katie. you were just my chambermaid, and yet I’ve already dragged you into this…”
I’m the one who dragged you into this.
I thought I would be confined to a separate mansion or somewhere else alone, but I didn’t expect that she would also go along as an attendant.
To my apology, Katie somehow forced a smile and shook her head.
“My Lady doesn’t have to worry. It seems that the butler won’t follow us to our destination. In that case, I’ll be able to relax without getting scolded.”
“Katie… If something unforeseen happens, I’ll write a letter of introduction to another house for you. If I ask Oji-sama, he’ll surely find a way to help you out.”
Oji-sama is kind. If he can’t hire her at his place, he’ll certainly arrange for her to be hired elsewhere.
“Thank you, My Lady.”
Katie must have been worried about the future. I felt that her tense cheeks relaxed.
“… So, does Katie know which separate mansion we’re going to?”
“Yes, I heard it’s a separate mansion on the west side of the capital.”
“Ah, I see…”
There is indeed a small separate mansion on the west side of the capital.
The mansion is a small house with a small garden and a two-story brick house.
I have only briefly seen it, but I have never entered it.
It is also rumored to be a place where my father temporarily housed a mistress in the past.
(It is a place where there are many poor people’s homes nearby. It is a somewhat unsafe place, but it may be better to be away from a place where noble houses stand.)
It seemed like a good place to temporarily keep a cursed daughter.
