I Was Confessed to by the Person I Was Admiring – Chapter 135


Chapter 135: Return of that guy

As soon as Paolo saw me, he smiled and came over.

Dennis, who was on guard, stood in front of me and asked, “Why are you here?”

“I came to say hello. I also have a small request,” Paolo said with a bright smile.

I observed Paolo while feeling puzzled. His clothes were clean, and he didn’t seem to be hungry. He looked healthy and didn’t seem like he had been captured by the military.

For the time being, I decided to ask what was on my mind.

“Are you okay?”

“What do you mean?”

Paolo asked with a puzzled look on his face. I looked at his whole body again and repeated my question.

“Weren’t you captured?”

“Yeah, but I was released… They didn’t want me to be there.”

He said it nonchalantly, but I had no idea what had happened. I was about to ask more questions, but Paolo was quicker.

“Oh, right. Let me explain properly. So can I come in?”

Paolo pointed to the mansion, and I was momentarily speechless. After all, I was just a guest here. It’s not that people couldn’t be invited, but permission would be needed, especially since it was Paolo who was asking.

Depending on the situation, you could be kicked out immediately. 

By the way, it would be troublesome if he ran into Lucia. If possible, I want to talk outside, but Jeremiah would worry if I went out.

I was still undecided on what to do when Paolo seemed to sense something and said, “I got it,” before walking away.

“Hey, where are you going?”

“I’ll get permission first.”

“No, but…”

“It’s okay. I have a secret weapon.”

He said that and gave me a wink. He’s quite stylish, I thought, but I couldn’t shake off the feeling of suspicion, so I looked at him with a suspicious eye.

However, Paolo didn’t pay any attention to me and quickly went into the mansion. I couldn’t stop him.

I hurriedly followed him and heard a voice filled with surprise. It was probably the butler. He might have noticed that there was someone in the entrance hall.

“Why are you here!”

“I have some business here. May I have an audience with the lady of the house?”

“That’s not going to happen. You were ordered not to enter again…”

The butler stopped speaking when he saw the paper that Paolo showed him. Then he looked back and forth between Paolo and the paper with a suspicious look.

“What nonsense is this? What will the lady of the house say? What is the master thinking… No, more importantly, why do you have this?”

“Due to certain circumstances, I was fortunate enough to have an audience.”

The butler’s face becomes somewhat resentful, but he is a first-class servant. After a sigh, he reluctantly said to Paolo,

“I have no choice. I will inform the madam… Until then, please wait in the reception room.”

“Understood.”

When Paolo replied, the butler still tilted his head, but then turned and disappeared into the mansion. Then, he immediately turned around and said with a very bright smile,

“Well then, let’s go.”

I couldn’t refuse and just nodded, following Dennis and Paolo back to the mansion. 

When we entered the reception room, Paolo seemed familiar with the place and started fiddling with the fireplace before finally sitting down on a chair.

“Um, what should I start with?”

“Anything is fine. I don’t know anything.”

Paolo muttered, “I guess you’re right,” and then looked at me after thinking for a while before suddenly bowing his head.

I was surprised by the sudden action and stared at him.

“First of all, thank you. You saved me, not just me, but everyone thinks so. They asked me to tell you if I ever met you.”

That’s when I understood what Paolo was talking about. After all, Emilio had just come and explained it to me.

Even so, hearing it again like this made me feel embarrassed and unsure of how to respond.

After hesitating for a moment, I suddenly remembered that diary.

“Hey, why did you give that thing I wrote to His Highness? And why did you have it?”

I had been meaning to ask him if we ever met. Emilio had said that Paolo had given it to him. That means Paolo had somehow retrieved it during that time and had been in possession of it.

“Oh, well, I thought it might be thrown away if I left it there. It was such a waste since you worked so hard on it. Besides, I was curious about the contents.” 

“So, you read it?”

When I asked, he nodded easily. It wasn’t embarrassing content, so it didn’t matter if he said he did, but for some reason, it felt awkward.

“I read it and thought they should know too. So, I gave it to the easiest person to ask. You know, that frivolous-looking colonel. I have a connection with him, and he seemed to be obsessed with Lorraine, so I thought he wouldn’t handle it carelessly.”

This reminded me of the time when I was in captivity. Both of them said something that made my stomach ache, so I couldn’t forget it even if I wanted to.

I sighed and nodded. “Well, I guess so.”

“I never thought it would lead to this result, but thank you. We always seem to be saved by you.”

“No, I’m happy to be useful.”

As I said that, I realized that I had actually been able to help everyone and naturally smiled.

Then Paolo’s expression became subtle.

Maybe he was frustrated that they always seemed to be saved by me. I wanted to ask him about it, but it was difficult to bring up. As I was thinking that, the door suddenly opened without warning, and Paula entered the room with a chill and discomfort emanating from her entire body.

Paolo and I reflexively turned our gaze towards her.

When Paula looked at us with a piercing gaze, she seemed unusually flustered, and I couldn’t help but blink.
