Leah Flores’s Devotion – I May Be a Mob Knight, but in This Life I Will Definitely Protect Duke William with All My Might! – Chapter 65

Chapter 65: Awakening

I feel a dazzling light through my eyelids.

As my consciousness resurfaces, I gently open my eyes.

As my focus sharpens, I see the ceiling of the guest room in the Duke of Moore’s mansion.

(I feel like I had a very long dream)

As I gaze at the ceiling, I realize that my left hand is wrapped in the warmth of human skin.

As I raise my body and look to the left, I see William-sama, who is still asleep while sitting on a chair beside the bed, holding my hand.

(That’s right… I collapsed from poison, and then…)

As I think back on the events so far, William-sama’s eyelashes tremble slightly.

“Hm…”

William-sama’s eyelids gradually open, and deep cobalt-colored eyes are shone by the morning sun.

He blinked a few times, but as soon as his eyes caught sight of me, they opened wide.

“Leah…?”

A trembling, hoarse voice calls out my name.

“Yes, William-sama.”

As I respond to his call, William-sama’s face contorts as if he is about to cry.

He was silent for a while, holding my hand tightly, but eventually he smiled at me with a smile that was like a mix of tears and laughter.

“Welcome back, Leah.”

A tear runs down his cheek as he says this.

A clear drop falls, sparkling in the sunlight.

William-sama informed Turner, the doctor who stayed at the Duke of Moore’s mansion, that I had awakened and received a medical examination that said there was nothing wrong with my condition. Turner then returned to the capital.

After that, I was told about what happened while I was unconscious by William-sama.

Poppy and Riley came to this mansion.

Finlay, the Crown Prince, and Charlotte wiped out the anti-royalist faction and sent them to prison.

Riley brought the herbs needed for treatment and gave them to me last night, but I didn’t wake up for a while.

“I have to apologize to Poppy and Riley for worrying them.”

As I said that, William-sama nods.

“They introduced themselves as your friends and have been worried about you all this time. When you are able to move, it would be nice to show them a healthy face.”

After these words, both of us stopped talking and silence fell in the room.

I had realized it.

William-sama had found out about my secret that I had been hiding.

And I expected that he would ask me about it from now on.

“…I thought I would lose you.”

William-sama whispers softly.

“While you were asleep, I thought about a lot of things. I thought we had been together since we were 12 years old and knew almost everything about each other, but it seems I was wrong.”

William-sama looks at me.

I feel that there are unexpected emotions in the depths of his quiet eyes, and I return his gaze.

“Leah. Why did you hide the fact that you are a woman and join the Order to become my escort knight… Could you tell me?”

(Finally, this time has come)

I take a deep breath and turn to face William-sama.
