I Was Confessed to by the Person I Was Admiring – Chapter 123


Chapter 123: Warm place

“I-I understand! I’ll be careful, and give it my all.”

It was a word spoken with the sole intention of not wanting Jeremiah to make any criminal-like remarks, but for some reason, he nodded with that scary smile still on his face.

“Yes, thank you for that.”

I don’t believe him at all.

I had an intuitive feeling, but there was nothing I could do about it. After all, I lacked credibility as things were now.

It depended on what happened from now on for him to believe me. I glanced at his hand that still wouldn’t let go and said,

“I’ll do my best to make you believe me.”

“Let’s hope so.”

He answered with a voice that still lacked any expectation, and Jeremiah didn’t say anything more. However, he still didn’t let go of my hand.

I felt a little happy about that and at the same time, very warm.

The air was very cold.

In fact, it was approaching evening, and everyone’s breath was white just a while ago. Usually, I would wear gloves to keep warm, but I didn’t have any now. My bare hands were numb, and my fingertips hurt.

He held my hand as if to warm it up.

Moreover, he had taken off his gloves without me noticing, and his body temperature seemed to be flowing into my hand.

Usually, if something like this happened, my heart would be in trouble. But because of my tired brain, the warmth was just comfortable, and I naturally closed my eyes.

The feeling of the shoulder next to me was just reassuring, without any anxiety.

Slowly but surely, the strength drained from my body.

In addition, my thoughts slowly melted away, and I unknowingly fell asleep.

In the end, it seems that I fell asleep in the carriage.

Without waking up at Duke’s mansion, I was carried to my room by Jeremiah in what they call a princess carry.

Dora repeatedly tells me about what happened at that time and hands me a steaming cup.

“Everyone at the mansion was focused on you!”

“Y-Yeah…”

“Moreover, Jeremiah-sama was here just a moment ago. He said he was worried and wanted to stay with you, even though he must be tired himself. Lorraine-sama, please don’t do something like this again!”

“Yes, I understand.”

I hold the cup with both hands and stare at its contents while giving a vague answer. After all, I’m not really paying attention to what she’s saying.

My nerves feel like they’re burning with embarrassment.

“Really? I believe you. Oh, and yesterday was so eventful. We were relieved, saw an amazing sight, and Mrs. Morena collapsed. But Dennis-san is amazing, isn’t she? She’s standing outside now, even though she looks like she’s being taken to the gallows!”

“Hold on, Dora. You should have told me that sooner.”

I almost dropped the cup in my hand without thinking. However, Dora shrugged her shoulders with a cool expression. 

“Even if you try to rest her, it’s useless, you know? I’ve told her many times already. But she still won’t move. And even Jeremiah-sama told her to rest, but she won’t listen, so there’s nothing we can do.”

I couldn’t say anything as I listened to Dora complaining with a sharp tone. Indeed, there was probably nothing she could do.

If that’s the case, the only ones who could do something about it were me and Jeremiah.

Moreover, if we wanted her to listen, there was probably a way to say it.

I let out a big sigh.

“Dora, for now, please call Denny.”

“Okay, I understand.”

With a face that seemed to say it was useless, Dora left the room as instructed. Then, I felt a slight commotion outside. I couldn’t hear it well since we were separated and Dora had closed the door. I waited with concern, wondering if everything was okay, and soon heard the sound of the door opening.

“Lorraine-sama, I called her. She was being difficult, but when I said it was an order from you, she came.”

“…I see. Well, it doesn’t matter.”

As I watched Dora reporting with a sigh mixed in her voice, I couldn’t help but admire my own servant.

It seems she has already learned how to handle Dennis. 

I wonder why some people have such high adaptability. I feel like I’m just a small servant or a waste of ability.

Unaware that she was being thought of in such a way, Dora snorted and looked at Dennis, who was hesitant to come to the bedroom, and said, “Come on, already.” Then she went to the next room.

“Come on, you’re being waited for, hurry up!”

“Y-Yes.”

Surprised by the weak voice that I had never heard before, I watched as Dennis came towards me fearfully. She looked like she had come to a funeral.

“Um, Lorraine-sama… do you have any business with me?”

“If there’s nothing, I wouldn’t have called you.”

While answering like that, I looked at her face that was still painful and hadn’t been treated properly, and furthermore, her face showed signs of sleep deprivation.

She already had a scary face, but it had become even more terrifying. At this rate, no one except Jeremiah, Paula, and Dora would be able to approach her.

“Well, what can I do for you?”

I said firmly to Dennis, who asked in a voice that seemed to disappear.

“Rest now.”

“B-but, I…”

“Just rest. If you don’t listen to me, you’ll have to reconsider becoming my servant.” 

It won’t mean anything if I don’t say it strongly.

Honestly, I’m not good at behaving like a noble, but I thought there was no other way to make them rest.

So, I gathered all the noble elements within me.

Dennis was startled by my voice, trembled, and then became dumbfounded. Then, tears welled up in her eyes.

“Um, Denny?”

I panicked, thinking that I might have hurt her, but I was surprised by the words that came out of her mouth.
