I Was Confessed to by the Person I Was Admiring – Chapter 124


Chapter 124: Rise, later impact

“May I still serve you, madam? Even Jeremiah-sama was disappointed, and I thought it was inevitable that I would be dismissed…”

“No, no, I don’t feel that way at all!”

I vigorously shook my head from side to side and denied it with all my might.

Or rather, was this servant thinking that much? If so, then I can understand her actions up until now.

However, I don’t remember taking such an attitude, and I’ve been sleeping until just now, so I shouldn’t have done anything to give her the wrong impression.

If that’s the case, then who did?

“But Duchess Astorga, Paula-sama said that I was useless, and the steward of this mansion lectured me that there are plenty of replacements… The people of this mansion run away as soon as they see me, which means that they no longer want to have anything to do with me…”

“I-I see… That’s what happened.”

I could imagine that scene, and I sympathized with Dennis’s feelings.

Of course, I also understood the feelings of the servants who avoided her. Her appearance now is quite something.

While feeling a subtle emotion, I felt sorry for Dennis, who was completely depressed.

This incident was my responsibility.

If Dennis had some responsibility too, it was only that she didn’t forcibly stop me. 

If anyone is going to be mentally torn to shreds by the blame, it should be me who suffers, so there is no reason to stop it.

I could honestly comfort her, but I know exactly how Dennis would react. She would probably insist that she is the one at fault and not listen. Furthermore, she might suggest that she continue to keep watch.

Therefore, I decided not to comfort him and spoke up instead.

“Anyway, I don’t intend for Denny to quit. So please rest properly. I can’t have you walking around with such a pale complexion, you know?”

“Lorraine-sama…!”

Dennis didn’t notice my slightly strained smile and had tears in her eyes as she pursed her lips. She was probably holding back tears, but I couldn’t help feeling like she was glaring at me.

“I am happy…to follow you, Lady Lorraine. I will serve you for the rest of my life.”

“Y-Yeah, so just rest.”

“Yes! I will rest with all my heart and soul. Please don’t leave the mansion for a while, as I will be back soon!”

With a bow and a loud “Excuse me,” Dennis briskly left the room. I waved my hand towards her back and said in a voice that I didn’t have much hope in, “Make sure to rest well~,” before letting out a sigh. 

Then, laughter could be heard from the direction of the door.

When I looked over there, Jeremiah was shaking his shoulders as if he found something amusing, but I didn’t know what was so funny. 

Although I wanted him to tell me, he was still laughing and couldn’t speak, so for the time being, I decided to watch him for my first viewing of the day after waking up.

Even though he looked the same as usual, there was a slightly worn-out feeling about his standing figure that made me feel sorry and want to apologize right away. However, no matter where I looked, he was still cool.

Not just his face, but his whole figure was good-looking.

I could see that figure that I thought I might never see again like this.

While savoring that thought and watching him, Jeremiah finally came over after his laughing fit subsided. Seeing that, Dora smiled meaningfully at me and said as she headed out, “Well then, I’ll excuse myself.”

I wanted to retort about that smirk of hers, but Dora left quickly. I wanted to click my tongue, but I stopped myself because Jeremiah had already come close.

“Good morning. How are you feeling?”

“I’m fine. Um…more importantly…”

Yesterday, I wasn’t really conscious of anything because of the situation, but my heart started pounding when I saw the beautiful face up close for the first time in a while. Furthermore, I remembered what Dora had said about yesterday and couldn’t help but ask.

However, I couldn’t ask.

If I asked, I felt like I wouldn’t be able to walk around this mansion with a cool face anymore.

Because the gaze of the servants directed at me is too painful. It’s almost unbearable. However, Jeremiah turned his gaze towards me and asked, “What is it?”

It’s too suspicious not to ask anything in this situation.

I immediately said something else.

“Um, why were you laughing just now?”

“Oh.”

Jeremiah muttered that and laughed a little again. It seems like it was really funny.

I was relieved that I didn’t self-destruct and waited for an answer.

“I thought you were getting close to her.”

“Getting close?”

I asked again, thinking that I haven’t lived with animals yet. Jeremiah casually said,

“Landegger. Didn’t she just act like a loyal hunting dog?”

“Did you see it?”

I asked that, Jeremiah nodded easily. After exhaling a long sigh, I thought that it wasn’t entirely unlike him. 

“I saw everything from start to finish. But it didn’t seem like I needed to intervene, and it was interesting, so I just watched it as it was.”

He remembered something and smiled faintly.

With such a trivial gesture, my heart skipped a beat. I was amazed at myself and pursed my lips.

“Well, it can’t be helped. If I didn’t say that much, she wouldn’t have rested.”

Jeremiah laughed happily again.

“Landegger has a tendency to get worked up. If she gets like that, I was going to do something about it. I’ve failed before with that approach. So honestly, I was happy you said that.”

I widened my eyes at what Jeremiah unexpectedly said.
