I Was Confessed to by the Person I Was Admiring – Chapter 128


Chapter 128: Oh my god

“But, isn’t it wonderful that I’m the only one who knows such things about someone so cool and beautiful? I understand why Lorraine-oneesama always looks so happy. Even if there are unpleasant things, if there are more enjoyable things, It won’t bother you.”

“Uh… well…”

It was certainly true, but there was still a minimum level of manners required. Although I thought so inwardly, I couldn’t interrupt the conversation and could only groan.

“Originally, I also liked looking at people with beautiful faces and loved plays. But then I thought, isn’t it better to only look at what you really like instead of seeing a lot of things?”

I thought she was talking about Paolo.

Lucia still has feelings for him after all. She said that in front of me, but does she still think about him in her heart?

I understand that feeling now.

I didn’t know before, but once you think about someone, it stays in your heart and doesn’t disappear easily.

“Not only that, but I think it’s best to look for someone whose inner self you can also love.” 

Lucia’s appearance was different from before, and although she looked tired, her cheeks were tinged with a faint blush. But I thought, ‘Something’s wrong. Something’s different. I feel a strong sense of discomfort.’

Because if she was thinking about Paolo, she wouldn’t react like this. After all, Lucia must have been treated badly by him. As I began to feel confused, the decisive blow was struck in the next moment.

“Yes, for example, someone like Lieutenant Colonel Caldelara.”

——Eh?

My eyes widened, and my mouth hung open. This must be what it feels like to be in such a state of mind. It’s rare to understand that state of mind so clearly, and while lightly avoiding it, I looked at Lucia.

She was sparkling with excitement and sighing.

If this were a shoujo manga, flowers would be blooming around her. I think it suits her, but the problem is the person she mentioned.

Lieutenant Colonel Caldelara.

In other words, Emilio. There should be no one else who matches the name Lucia mentioned as Lieutenant Colonel Caldelara.

It’s the name of the guy who once kidnapped me and even proposed marriage to me for some reason. 

He seems to have become somewhat decent, but I still find him scary and don’t think I will ever like him.

However, Lucia said it.

She mentioned his name as an example of someone you can like for their inner qualities. Of all people, she had to mention that man’s name. I was at a loss for words and could only open and close my mouth like a fish caught on land.

“I talked to him when I was captured there. We talked about many things. He listened to me properly and even gave me advice. He told me about strengths and weaknesses that no one had ever told me before… It was really refreshing.”

Lucia spoke with a different tone than when she talked to Paolo, and there was a hint of a troublesome smell. This is the face of a woman.

She still has some innocence left, and I’m not really sure why, but I somehow thought that. 

——Why did you say that to Lucia, Emilio?

I cursed Emilio in my heart for being so difficult, even though he has the same face as his brother. But Lucia didn’t notice my inner conflict at all and let out an ennui-filled sigh.

“…Um, Lorraine-sama. Your expression has become very complicated.”

The only servant who noticed my state of mind spoke up with concern. I quickly regained my composure and thanked the servant with a smile. 

However, even if I regained my composure, the problem remained.

Moreover, it was worse than with Paolo.

I think I am also responsible, but I can’t handle it no matter what. I have no choice but to entrust it to the Palmara family.

It’s just a mess.

I sighed heavily, different from Lucia’s heavy sigh. 

After that, Lucia became absent-minded, and I decided that there was nothing more I could do and left the room.

“Lucia, it’s tough.”

Why does she always fall for troublesome people?

“Well, it’s not that I didn’t have a hunch.”

When we were released from the memory holders, I noticed that Lucia’s gaze towards Emilio was strange. However, I was scared to think about it, so I pretended not to notice.

But now, it feels like it’s being pushed in my face.

However, this time there is no shortage of opponents. But it’s Emilio we’re talking about. It’s unlikely that he would be a match for Lucia. And Dorothea probably wouldn’t allow it. Aurelio might not allow it either.

I thought and thought but couldn’t come to a conclusion, so I got tired and went back to my room.

After all, hearing Lucia’s story had caused quite a bit of mental fatigue. Even though I slept soundly. My energy seems to be running out abnormally. Slightly dizzy, I think I need to toughen up more.

Still, for now, I just want to rest.

Especially my brain. 

I hurried back to my room and, finding no one there, I turned my attention to the stack of books. It was the books that Jeremiah and I bought when we first arrived in this capital city. I picked up one of them and headed towards the fireplace.

I decided to escape into the world of books for a while.

As I confirmed the title, I almost dropped the book. This wasn’t something I had bought.

The title engraved on the poorly made leather cover read “Rose Garden of Excitement ~Secret Ring~.”
