Chapter 41: Liddellina anxiety
When Liddellina wakes up the next morning, Dorothy comes worriedly.
“Okusama, how are you feeling?
“Yes, I’m fine. Sorry for the trouble.”
Liddellina’s eyes were swollen because she fell asleep crying.
“It’s not a problem at all. We are sorry that we were not able to protect Okusama. Okusama, please put this on your eyes.”
Dorothy offers a cold towel. Liddellina obediently puts it on her eyes. The coldness feels good.
“Thank you, Dorothy. So, how is the preserved food coming along?”
“Don’t worry about that. We will have enough for two or three days in a few days.”
Then, a servant brings a light breakfast for Liddellina.
Liddellina doesn’t feel like eating, but she eats anyway because they worry. She starts on the warm soup and salad and eats half the bread.
Next to her, Dorothy pours a little bit of brandy in a cup of tea. Liddellina takes a sip and then opens her mouth as if she has made a decision.
“So, where is my husband?”
“He is currently attending to guests.”
“Is it possible that my brother Kurt is here?”
Liddellina hurries to get up and start getting dressed.
“Okusama, please calm down. Please trust your husband. He would never do anything to make you sad.”
Dorothy says pleadingly.
There is definitely a bond between her and her husband now. However, they have completely different values and personalities. That’s what worries her.
“In the end, Liddellina ended up taking a day of rest in her room due to exhaustion. She wondered what happened to her uncle’s family.
As the day grew darker, the sound of knocking echoed. When Liddellina answered, it was Friedrich. His expression was harder than usual.
“Husband, I truly apologize for the inconvenience I have caused.”
“That’s why I’m saying that Liddellina doesn’t need to apologize. It’s just that Kurt wasn’t good enough.”
“Did you speak with brother Kurt?”
“Yes, I asked him what happened and we discussed what to do in the future.”
“I wasn’t allowed to be there, was I?”
Liddellina hung her head and shrugged her shoulders. Friedrich sat Liddellina on the sofa and sat down next to her. He gently pulled her closer and hugged her shoulders.
“Calm down and listen. First of all, the conclusion is that he offered the return of the Barony of Drimore.”
“In the first place, that family took over the house and stole the head of the household from the children. He left for abroad to study because he was indifferent to that and couldn’t get along with his parents. He deeply regretted that. It seems he didn’t know you were being treated unfairly, but it’s easy to guess that it was those parents. He seems to feel responsible for that. Although it can’t be said that he has no guilt.”
“So, I reduced his father’s sentence.”
Even though they don’t see eye to eye, he’s still Kurt’s real father.
“What about Aunt and Cousin?”
“He said he didn’t care if they were hanged or anything else.”
“What? My brother would say such a thing?”
She couldn’t believe it.
“Liddellina, while Kurt was studying abroad, they squandered the fortune. In the first place, a lot of money was spent on his study abroad. That also came from the Drimore family’s fortune in the first place. When he returned home in a hurry after receiving your message, it seems that the territory was in a precarious state of survival. And it is still in crisis now.”
“So, why did Uncle and Aunt come to this territory? Were they driven out by my brother?”
“Regarding that, he said he had locked them up in a secluded mansion on the territory. So that they could no longer go to the capital or lead a lavish life. But they had money that they had kept secret from Kurt, money that they had obtained by selling the Drimore family’s property without permission… They came here because they heard rumors that Ihad lost my memory and had become useless.”
“Well, some of the reason those rumors spread was because I didn’t go out much in society… So Liddellina doesn’t like the idea of being executed?”
This is probably just Liddellina’s selfishness. He has his dignity as a nobleman, and it’s unacceptable for a commoner to do as they please in the castle.
“I’m afraid. If I had been more responsible, this wouldn’t have turned into such a big deal.”
Friedrich shakes his head as if to deny this.
“It’s not your fault. Then we’ll offer up the victim and turn the offender over to the royal guards in the capital.”
It’s only natural to receive punishment for committing a crime, but Liddellina’s hands trembled.
“It’s okay. Liddellina, I’ll plead on your behalf to avoid the death penalty.”
Liddellina looked up at her husband in surprise. Even though his honor has been damaged, he’s willing to compromise for her sake.
“Thank you, Husband…”
Even though her swollen eyes had finally gone down, she was once again covered in tears.
“Liddellina is a crybaby today.”
Saying this, he gently touches Liddellina’s hair.
“Anyway, rest well for now.”
“No, I can’t keep relying on you like this. I still have work to do.”
“It’s okay, take a break for a while. You”ve been working too hard. Rather than that, can we have a meal together today? I’ll be lonely by myself.”
Friedrich gently smiles and softly embraces Liddellina.
