I Was Confessed to by the Person I Was Admiring – Chapter 146


Chapter 146: 6/8 — (Jeremiah POV)

When I appeared, the women’s gazes were so intense that it was almost painful. Of course, since we were well acquainted, it wasn’t uncomfortable, but I needed someone to say something.

For the time being, I left the room and asked if there were any mistakes while showing my whole body.

“How is it? Are there any mistakes?”

“No, there aren’t… Ahhh, why are there no videos or cameras in this world! I can’t leave such a beautiful appearance behind!”

Lorraine shouted while wearing a dress with a dazzling pattern woven on a pale peach-colored fabric, which was said to be the traditional costume of her former homeland. But unfortunately, I didn’t understand what she was saying.

“Calm down, Lorraine. It’s certainly very nice, but if you want to say that much, why don’t you invite a painter, you know, to the party?”

Paula calmly advised her.

Lorraine said regretfully, “Yes, that’s a good idea,” and then calmed down a bit and looked at my appearance. After a short while, she smiled softly.

“Then all that’s left is a sword or something like that to make it perfect. I never thought it would turn out this nice. Thank you, Jeremiah.”

“No problem, I’m happy if you’re happy. So, should we both go to the costume party dressed like this?”

“Huh? Is that okay?”

“Of course.” 

I nodded vigorously. Usually, when it came to costume parties, I just wore slightly flashy clothes with a mask, but if it made Lorraine happy, this would be good too. Above all, I was happy that she had thought of me.

And she did it for me.

“That’s great, Onee-sama! She said she wanted you to wear this all the time. Besides, Jeremiah-sama looks good in anything.”

“Is that so? I don’t know because I’ve never worn different clothes before.”

At Lucia’s words, I looked at myself. I changed my clothes slightly depending on the season or event, but basically, I chose similar things. So I really didn’t know.

“In that case, why don’t you try various things from now on? With Lorraine-oneesama.”

Lucia called out to Lorraine.

“Yes, if you could do that for me, I would be very excited…I mean, happy.”

Lorraine stopped herself from saying “excited.” I remembered when I first met her and suddenly found it funny.

This was also a world I wouldn’t have known if I hadn’t met Lorraine.

Surely, there will be more things like this in the future. It’s a very enjoyable thought. I said with a laugh.

“In that case, let’s have another party like this. This time at the Castalde mansion.”

“Yes, that’s good. I’m looking forward to it.” 

When Paula said it, Lorraine blushed slightly and smiled happily, saying “Yes.” If I can see that smile, I’ll do anything. I thought that while watching the women laugh together.

The next day was a calm and sunny day, with a fragrant breeze announcing that spring had arrived. I was visiting a jeweler in such a cheerful mood.

I had received a message that something I had been thinking of giving to Lorraine since the incident in the capital had arrived.

The shop facing the main street was sparsely visited by gentlemen, and there was no hustle and bustle. It was a high-class store that even supplied jewels to the royal family, so they didn’t have any cheap items, and only upper-class people would visit.

As soon as I entered the store, a guide appeared and led me to a room on the second floor. After waiting for a while there, the owner himself appeared with the ordered item.

He respectfully placed it on the table in a cloth-covered box and showed me the contents by removing the lid.

“This is a top-quality item that arrived yesterday. How is it? It’s a stunning red, isn’t it?”

“Indeed, it’s beautiful.”

I carefully examined the contents of the box.

Inside was a pendant adorned with stones of a milder color than ruby. The characteristic of this stone is that its color is not stable. However, what was in front of me was all red with a yellow luster on the surface, shining golden depending on the light. It’s not easy to get because it’s rarely available for some reason and is popular. 

Still, I really wanted to give this to Lorraine.

“I hope you are satisfied with our service.”

“Oh, you found it well. I thought this store would have it and I was right.”

“Thank you very much. Please continue to favor us… Now, please sign here.”

As instructed, I signed the document, paid the prepared money, and received the jewel. When I touched it, I felt a warmth somewhere.

Then I greeted the shopkeeper and left the store.

While walking back to thr duke’s mansion, I imagined Lorraine’s reaction when she saw it. At first, she might make a slightly puzzled face. But if she is happy, her eyes like the sun will shine with tears.

I don’t want to cloud those eyes.

I wished for that with this stone. In other words, it’s like a talisman. There may be no effect, but I wanted to give shape to my wishes and thoughts.

The gifts I’ve given her recently were to make Lorraine look beautiful or to not kill her charm.

Everything is for her.

But this is for me.

It may be selfish. That’s why I was a little scared to give it to her. Still, I want to see her face when she sees it.

I chuckled and quickened my pace.
