I Was Confessed to by the Person I Was Admiring – Chapter 36


Chapter 36: I love you

“Uwa!”

“Tch!”

I clicked my tongue without thinking after my full-powered kick was dodged.

If it had landed, the situation would have been resolved in one fell swoop, and I couldn’t help but feel frustrated. It was a one-time surprise attack against a man, especially a soldier.

Dorothea finally stopped screaming when she saw that.

When our eyes met, she asked tearfully, “Hey, what, what’s going on… and that person…”

“This guy isn’t Lord Caldelara, he’s his younger brother. You saw him too, he’s trying to kidnap me at someone’s request.”

“What did you say!”

Dorothea quickly sat up, but her legs were tied, and she rolled over onto the floor. However, Dorothea gritted her teeth and began crawling towards the door.

“Wait!… Damn, I should have tied your legs too.”

“That’s right. As someone who enjoys admiring handsome men, your verbal attacks won’t work on me. Do you think I’m the kind of person who can be fooled by being teased about marriage?”

“No, I was serious about that.”

I stood in front of him, trying to stop Dorothea, and glared at his beautiful face. I wanted to admire it, but I had to hold back for now. Or rather, if I’m going to admire someone, I rather  worship his brother’s face. For that reason, I had to fight now.

However, he didn’t pay attention to Dorothea and grabbed my arm, pulling me towards him. Since my arms were not free and I lacked explosive power, I was easily caught.

“It can’t be helped. I didn’t want to resort to force.”

“W-What?”

As my feet floated and I thought I was lifted up, I screamed when I saw his hand on my skirt.

“Hey, what are you doing!”

“I’m just tying your legs. If it comes to this, I have no choice but to make it look like we’re eloping.”

“No! Stop it!”

I struggled desperately, but my strength was no match. As I watched ropes being tied around both my legs, I was frustrated by my own weakness.

Will I be taken away by him like this? I’d rather die than let that happen.

Dorothea desperately tried to help me.

“Wait, Lorraine, I’ll go call for help…”

But before she could finish her sentence, the door opened with tremendous force. The next moment, he, who had been holding me down, was punched and rolled on the floor.

I heard groans, and I lifted my head to calm my pounding heart.

In the moonlight, Jeremiah, burning with anger, stood there.

Jeremiah fell on top of him and repeatedly punched him in the face. The painful sound echoed many times, and I panicked and said, “S-stop it, please stop!”

Even so, Jeremiah didn’t stop, so I reached out my bound hands and pulled his clothes. Finally, he stopped hitting him and hugged me tightly with a pained expression.

He hugged me so tightly that I felt like I couldn’t breathe.

With a big sigh in my ear, Jeremiah said, “I’m glad you’re okay…”

My heart raced uncontrollably at his heartfelt words.

The strength of his arms around me was suffocating and painful, but at the same time, I was so happy that I felt like I was going crazy.

“I came to your room because you hadn’t said you were taking a break today. But you weren’t there, and Lady Dorothea wasn’t there either. So I thought something might have happened and searched the entire mansion with Lord Caldelara, whom I met on the way.”

“Thank you very much.”

I muttered and immediately started shaking.

When I had decided to escape from here no matter what, I hadn’t felt like this, but I realized that I was still scared.

My eyes became hot, and even though I knew I was safe now, tears overflowed, and I started sobbing.

“You must have been scared. I’m sorry for being late to find you.”

I couldn’t hold back anymore and clung to him, crying for a while at his warm voice.

During that time, Jeremiah kept stroking my back, apologizing and telling me that everything was okay. I was so happy that I couldn’t help it.

I really do love Jeremiah.

Looking at it now, I realized it from the bottom of my heart.

His straightforwardness that can hurt others without lying, his beautiful appearance, and of course, not everything, but I want to be by his side and be even happier if I can be of help to him.

Above all, I strongly felt that I didn’t want anyone else to touch me except him.

That chilling feeling when he touched me while I was lying on the floor. I never want to experience that again.

At the same time, I felt that I could be with someone who could think that far without confessing my feelings. I felt that it was not good to continue like this.

Then, I’ll say it properly.

It’s okay to love even if it’s not returned.

I decided that and waited for my turbulent emotions to calm down.

Eventually, as my sobbing subsided, I noticed the other person in the room.

Through my tear-filled and blurry vision, I saw Aurelio. He had already untied Dorothea’s rope and was using it to tie up his brother.

When he noticed that I was watching, he looked apologetic.

“Lady Lorraine… My foolish brother did something he shouldn’t have. I heard about it from the lady who was hiding next door.”

“I see. So why did he do something like this?”

Jeremiah asked on my behalf since I still couldn’t speak well. Aurelio rolled his brother onto the floor and sat next to Dorothea, who was looking concerned, before lowering his head and speaking while holding his nose with both hands.

“My brother Emilio came here without my knowledge and pretended to be me. He lost a lot of money in a poker game… A lady proposed this to him… If he could either harm Lady Lorraine or involve her in an irreparable scandal, she would make his debt disappear.”

“Well, that’s so selfish.”

Dorothea was furious. Aurelio nodded and looked at his younger brother, Emilio.

He was lying face down with a sullen expression. Aurelio asked in a frustrated tone, “Are you sure about this, Emilio?”

Emilio let out a sigh before answering.
