The Happy Farm of the Fallen Noble Daughter ~A Slow Remote Wasteland Life Exploration with My Dearest~ – Chapter 48

Chapter 48: George’s idiot

Seeing Laura, who couldn’t quite grasp what had just happened in front of her, Diana turned her attention to Daniel instead.

“Um, Daniel. . .can I talk to you for a moment?”

“. . .Diana, this is a bad time, don’t bother me.”

“It’s not about that. Actually, Laura-san is deaf.”

Upon hearing that, Daniel abruptly stood up and approached Diana.

“Is that true. . .?!”

“Yes. So, it’s useless to speak to her orally. She needs to write.”

“I see. . .I thought she was confused by my persistent approach.”

“. . .You were aware of that?”

“I see. In that case, let’s turn back for now. . .”

Laura anxiously watches the conversation between the two. 

Daniel returns to the workshop to retrieve something to write with. 

After bidding him farewell, Diana writes on the ground. 

〝He has fallen in love with Laura, he say.〟

Upon reading those words, Laura’s face contorts in surprise. 

“Oh. . .this is troublesome. Because I. . .”

Laura stumbles over her words. Diana imagines the reason behind her hesitation and feels a pang in her chest. But as if to say it doesn’t matter, she continues to convey her message. 

“Daniel is an art dealer. He’s very wealthy.”

“. . .Is that so?”

〝He said he’ll write a letter and come back.〟

“Hmm. . .I wonder if it’s wrong to run away.”

〝That’s up to how Laura feels.〟

Laura rubs her own cheek in a troubled manner, takes a deep breath from her belly as if gathering her determination, and exhales. 

“Well. . .maybe I should wait for a little while.”

〝Should you talk to him?〟

“. . .He didn’t seem like a bad person at first glance.”

The first impression seems to have been good. Diana had not expected something like this to happen to Laura, especially after the recent incident. 

Yes, Laura is not a woman who hides away in a corner of this village. 

Even Diana, who has seen many wealthy and noble people, has never seen anyone as enchanting and beautiful as her. 

Her deafness is no obstacle for Daniel. As the wife of a major trading company, all the servants would take care of everything. Truly, her only job would be to act as her husband’s highest-quality accessory. 

Diana imagines it. 

Daniel, a man who would attract the attention of women everywhere. And if Laura were to stand by his side, her presence would dominate the social scene like a magnificent flower. 

Fortunately, both of them can write. Communication is not a concern. 

However──

(. . .George)

Diana just can’t get that thought out of her head. 

(That stubborn man. . .he’s such an idiot)

Diana becomes increasingly frustrated. And then, suddenly. 

“Hey, Diana?”

Startled by the sudden voice, she turns around nervously. 

Leon is standing there. 

“We’re taking a break. Where did you put those lemon preserves?”

“Oh, if that’s what you’re looking for, it’s in the luggage. . .”

As the two were talking, Laura suddenly stood up from the bench.

Leon finally noticed her, but she passed by him without making eye contact or exchanging greetings.

“. . .What was that?”

“. . .Well, she did talk to me properly.”

“Hmm, well, I can kind of understand how Laura feels. Seeing me, his own brother, who resembles him, after what happened last week, it must be awkward for her.”

Diana and the others returned to the square and took out a bottle of lemonade.

They squeezed in between the brickworkers and opened the lid, offering its contents.

“This is lemon preserves. Please have some if you’d like.”

Keaton was the first to respond.

“Well, then I’ll have one.”

“Here you go.”

As the foreman started eating, the workers hesitantly accepted the lemons and began eating as well.

In the back of the group, Laura was there.

She looked a bit pale.

Diana was concerned and looked in that direction when raindrops started falling on her face.

“. . .Oh, it’s raining.”

Upon seeing this, Keaton turned pale and his eyes found his daughter’s figure.

“Hey, Laura. It’s enough for today. Get on the horse and go home right away.”

Laura looked slightly puzzled by her father’s urgency, but when she saw the craftsman writing something on the ground, she nodded and stepped out of the circle.

Everyone present bid her farewell as Laura rode off on the horse from the rose garden.

“. . .He’s overprotective, that boss of ours.”

An experienced worker said that, and those around laughed.

“Shut up. That child’s hearing loss happened because she caught a cold after being rained on.”

Keaton said that and spat the lemon peel onto the ground.

“And all of this is George’s fault. He let my daughter go on a trip during the rainy season of all times.”

Leon glared at the foreman for a moment and pushed him into silence. Diana panicked when she saw that.

“Well, I didn’t know that. I should apologize as well.”

“Oh, no need for you, the bride, to worry about that. Sorry, I got carried away and started talking nonsense.”

“By the way, what happens to work when it rains?”

“If it’s a light rain, we continue. If it becomes heavy rain, we’ll go home.”

Leon let out a sigh as if he had lost interest. Diana gently supported his back.

In the midst of the tense atmosphere, Daniel casually approached with a letter in hand.

“. . .Huh? What happened to Laura-san?”

Keaton stood up and answered.

“I sent her home because it started raining.”

“What?. . .I see, well, that’s good. Then, Keaton, as her father, I entrust this letter to you.”

Keaton had a question mark floating above his head as he received the letter from Daniel.

“A letter?”

“I want you to give it to Laura-san.”

“What does the heir of Belz Trading Company want with my daughter?”

“Well. . .”

Daniel answered with rosy cheeks.

“It’s a love letter to your daughter.”

Diana and Leon’s expressions turned serious, but Keaton’s eye color quickly changed.

“Laura. . .with Daniel-sama?!”

“Yes, that’s right. Of course, I’m dead serious. Keaton, the fact that I entrusted this to you is the greatest proof.”

Keaton’s hand holding the letter trembled like a warrior.

“This. . .is finally a stroke of luck for poor Laura.”

Diana and Leon exchanged glances, looking unimpressed.

Of course, their thoughts were in perfect agreement.

(Oh well. . .George.)
