I Was Confessed to by the Person I Was Admiring – Chapter 139


Chapter 139: Busy on national holidays

“What I want is for you to learn how to protect yourself in society and not to kill your own charm,” Jeremiah said, his words choking me up as it was something I was most unfamiliar with.

“Oh, right, there was one more thing,” he added.

“A-Another thing?”

“Don’t pay too much attention to other men. I learned about my own patience this time, but the conclusion is that I don’t have much of it.”

I choked up even more at his smiling words. After all, my long-standing habit had not yet been broken. I was perfectly happy just looking at Jeremiah, so there was no need to supplement with other handsome men, but my eyes moved on their own.

“Yes, I’ll do my best.” 

I answered meekly, tears completely gone. There was nothing else I could say.

Then, satisfied or so it seemed, Jeremiah nodded and I thought it was over. But he came closer and closer.

Before my brain could catch up, he lifted me up by the shoulders and slid his arm under my knees, giving me a floating sensation.

“Ah!”

I swallowed my scream and was thrown into confusion by the situation I found myself in. It was because he was holding me like a princess carry and taking me somewhere. The direction was clearly towards the bedroom. 

“Um, excuse me, but I’m not sleepy yet. Besides, I haven’t eaten…”

“Even if you’re not sleepy, you’re probably tired. You should rest in a warmer place instead of this dreary place.”

“Well, that’s true…”

Indeed, he was right.

Although the temperature had risen considerably, it was still quite cold. Even so, it was too much trouble to go to bed, so I ended up lying on the long bench.

And by resting, my physical and mental strength had recovered somewhat.

I had thought that I might be able to attend dinner now.

“If you’re not sleepy, why don’t we have a meal together? Come to think of it, I came here because I wanted to be with you, but we haven’t been able to spend much time together because of all the unnecessary things. I want to make up for it a little.”

“But Paula is waiting too…”

“Don’t worry about it. I’ll tell her.”

I couldn’t say anything more when he said that.

It’s not that I didn’t like it.

But this felt like some kind of rehearsal for the wedding night and made me uneasy. It was enough to make me want to thrash around without knowing why.

Well, I wouldn’t do such a thing.

While I was in a state of great confusion, I was gently placed in the middle of the sleeping berth. When I sat down on the soft bed, my body sank into it.

“Well then, just call Dora to make youself more comfortable. I’ll come back and talk to you, so wait quietly.” 

With a threatening “goodbye,” Jeremiah turned around and left. Watching his back, I fell forward.

——He’s definitely teasing me!

I wondered if it was payback for causing him trouble.

Suddenly, I thought, maybe I’ll have to face Mark at dinner. He didn’t want that.

A weak laugh escaped me as I imagined it.

There’s no way that would happen. But even in this form, I’m happy to be with him. His beloved face that never gets boring no matter how much I look at it. His figure.

I can watch him as much as I want from up close.

We can exchange words.

I laughed to myself and called Dora as instructed. 

Javier festival day.

The nobles dressed in spring attire and went out while the sun was still high. They visited neighboring houses and exchanged words of celebration for the arrival of spring.

Sometimes they would miss each other, but in that case, they would visit again.

Most men looked bored, while women went out with excitement and heavy breathing. This is because most noblewomen buy new dresses at this time and compete with each other’s level.

It’s like a prelude to the upcoming social season.

In Valcourt territory, I spent a more peaceful time enjoying dinner and small gatherings at night, so I was surprised by this.

All the time was spent on this during the day.

We carried light snacks like sandwiches and finally returned home in the afternoon, exhausted just from that.

“It’s…hard.”

After following Paula around, I finally returned to the mansion and collapsed onto the sofa in my room.

“Are you okay?”

Dora asked me with a worried look on her face, and I smiled wryly and said,

“If I rest a little, I’ll be fine…but it’s not over yet.”

I glanced at Dora’s hands and said with a gloomy feeling. She already had a dress for the night, and despite her worried expression, she was eager to change me from the neck down. 

Well, that can’t be helped. Dora had been waiting for this moment when I could finally go socializing.

Well, thanks to that, I didn’t receive any strange looks from the ladies I visited, but rather jealous glances.

“I just need a little rest for now.”

“Understood. Then I’ll go choose some accessories properly.”

Dora said that restlessly and left. Dennis, who brought tea in exchange, furrowed his eyebrows when he saw me.

“Lorraine-sama, I brought you some tea.”

“Thank you…?”

I looked at the cup that was handed to me and noticed something different. I stared at the contents for a moment. It seemed like the color and smell were different from the usual tea.

Without touching my lips to the cup, I looked at Dennis’ face with suspicion.

“That’s herbal tea. It seems to be made from dried flowers.”

“No wonder it smells good.”

“You seemed tired, so I changed it up. If it doesn’t suit your taste, I’ll switch it back to the usual one…”

With a doubtful voice, I decided to try it anyway. It had a sweet and fruity taste with a slightly grassy flavor, but it seemed like it would be effective. Without saying anything, I drank about half of it and then spoke.
