I Was Confessed to by the Person I Was Admiring – Chapter 30

Chapter 30: Morning when my stomach hurts

“Ah, wait a moment. I’ll come out!” I shouted.

“I understand,” came the reply. I sighed as I looked into the mirror and gave up, standing up from the stool.

There was no help for it. I would have to postpone getting my hair done again.

“Well then, I’ll go have breakfast. I’ll also let Auntie know.”

“Okay, please do.”

“And Dora, please take care of Dorothea.”

“Yes, leave it to me.”

She nodded in response and opened the door to go outside. There, I saw Tatiana and her husband, Lord Grimani. While I thought they were rare visitors, I couldn’t help but be mesmerized by their beautiful appearance again today. Then, Tatiana asked me curiously:

“Couldn’t we have talked in your room?”

“Um, I share my room with my cousin. She’s not feeling well today and doesn’t want to see anyone…”

“I see.”

As Tatiana and Lord Grimani walked slowly, they exchanged a brief glance, and their atmosphere became strangely tense. Come to think of it, they said they had something to talk about, but they didn’t seem to be able to bring it up easily. Was it something difficult to say?

“Well, actually… I have something to talk to you about regarding your cousin.”

“Do you know Dorothea?”

“Well, we haven’t talked a lot in person, but everyone staying in this mansion knows about her and Viscount Caldelara. It’s that hot, we even felt a little embarrassed watching from afar.”

Saying that, the two of them exchanged smiles.

Personally, Dorothea and Lord Caldelara, I don’t think you are the only ones who would like to be mentioned. If there was a ranking for being together all the time, they would definitely be in first place.

“Well, you and Jeremiah beat me to it. It’s amazing, I’ve never seen Jeremiah with such a defeated look on his face before. It must have been quite something… And they’re always together, you can really feel that they never want to be apart.”

A defeated look on his face…?

That’s ridiculous. Maybe it means that Jeremiah, who always showed a cold smile, started showing emotional expressions.

Otherwise, it’s incomprehensible. I mean, I can’t imagine him with a lovey-dovey face. It’s beyond my imagination.

But I think we are always together to make people around us feel that we never want to be apart. So, it can be said that we have succeeded completely. However, honestly, I often think we are too close.

Anyway, the probability of Jeremiah being near me is so high that it startles me. He’s always there, almost like a stalker. It’s a bit exaggerated, even if it’s to show that we’re lovers…he’s there.

Oh, I thought he wasn’t there and was relieved, but he was in the corner of my vision.

At that time, I thought to myself, “He’s really playing around.”

As I reminisced about it and felt warm inside, Tatiana hurriedly corrected the topic.

“Oh, we’ve gone off topic. That’s not what I wanted to talk about… I wanted to talk about Lord Caldelara.”

“What happened to him?”

Tatiana looked uneasy and glanced at Lord Grimani. Then, he took over the rest of Tatiana’s words.

“Actually, I saw him getting close to other ladies. Not only that, but he was probably just playing around, but he was dressed as a naval officer. It may not be a big deal, but I thought I should tell you…you can see how much your cousin admires him. But…”

“Yes, it might be bad if it continues like this. I wanted you to know, well, you already know, right? If she’s feeling unwell, then that’s probably the case, right?”


I nodded. I had no reason to lie, and I didn’t want to deceive someone who was worried about her. I thought it would be okay to tell them, but I decided to avoid giving a detailed explanation because Dorothea might not like it.

“It’s easy to say it’s a common story, but it still hurts. If there’s anything we can do to help, please let us know.”

“Thank you, I’m sure Dorothea will be happy.”

I sincerely thought so. When Dorothea’s face recovers, I’ll introduce them. I decided that and headed to the dining room while talking with the two of them and telling my aunt about Dorothea’s face. My aunt seemed relieved to hear that Dorothea was doing well, although she was worried.

On the way, Tatiana noticed my hairstyle and praised me for being cute. She insisted that I shouldn’t change my hairstyle anymore. I was at a loss, but I continued the conversation with them, burning with a mysterious determination that no matter what they said, they would put my hair back in a bun.


After finishing the meal, I decided to search for the book that Dorothea had asked for.

As a result of changing my hairstyle, it seems that I attracted the attention of some gentlemen. Of course, I had already factored in the power of the murder beams from the ladies being twice as strong as usual. They didn’t forget to send flirtatious glances at Jeremiah and other young unmarried gentlemen while showering me with murder beams.

While impressed, I felt a bit sick to my stomach.

As a result, I couldn’t eat too much and finished my meal feeling like crying.

Come to think of it, Jeremiah’s smile seemed more powerful than usual. It was not so much a smile as a smile to hide his true emotions. It was scary. Everywhere I looked, my stomach was in pain, so I decided to leave quickly.

Above all, if I stayed, I would likely be caught by the ladies after the meal. I quickly got up from my seat and headed to the library. In any case, running away is winning, which is my motto.

When I arrived at the library, I immediately began searching for the book. It was difficult to find because I was given a confusing order. The Castalde family’s heads have had a strong desire for knowledge for generations, so the library in the mansion was well-stocked. The shelves reached the ceiling, and books from various fields were stored there.

While using a stepladder to search for books, I took a break and went to the window to look outside. It was slightly cloudy outside, and it was a bit chilly today. I thought that I wouldn’t be able to take a walk outside and lowered my gaze when I saw a figure similar to Aurelio’s.

“Lord Caldelara? But his clothing is different.”

That was Aurelio, who Tatiana and Lord Grimani had seen before.

He seemed to be chatting with some young ladies. It was not very clear from this distance, but he looked happy, and my stomach felt queasy.

Dorothea was suffering so much…

However, why was his clothing different from usual? As I was thinking about that, someone entered the library. I was surprised and turned around to see Jeremiah and Paula. They saw me and their faces lit up as they walked towards me. Paula immediately pulled my sleeve.

“You were here! We were looking for you because you weren’t in your room. Come on, come on!”

“Huh? What? What?”

As I looked at Jeremiah in confusion, he returned a happy smile, and my heart skipped a beat and I stumbled as if I had missed a graceful landing. We had just exchanged a nod at breakfast, so I thought he was busy today and let my guard down.

I still think this face is a weapon.

“I heard that the dress for the ball is finished. The others are not yet, but Madam came to tell me that she wants the size of that dress to be adjusted precisely, and…”

As Jeremiah spoke, he reached out to touch my stray hair which had deliberately left behind and said with a slightly dangerous look in his eyes, “This hairstyle suits you well.”

I froze at the challenging look he gave me.
