“I’m sorry Evelina frequently interferes with your work. You’re not obligated to accompany her every time just because she’s your master’s daughter.”
When I brought the documents to the master’s room one day, he said to me as he took them.
My head shook.
“I don’t believe Ojo-sama is meddling. Ojo-sama is always concerned about me, for which I am grateful.”
“Really? I’m hoping so.”
The master thinks for a moment before saying this.
“Are you thinking about becoming Evelina’s personal butler, Sylas? She appears to like you a lot and she listens to you.”
“Me? Ojo- sama’s… But I’m a child, I’m not from a noble family, and I’m not worthy of being Ojo-personal sama’s butler.”
“No, I’m not going to leave you in charge of everything. Of course, I would require another servant if needed. Keep an eye on Evelina. A noblewoman who is too daring will not make a good pawn in the future.”
Simply put, the master says. The word “pawn” caught me off guard, but the unexpected implication made my heart race faster.
“Yes Sir. I will do everything in my power to meet your expectations.”
The Master quietly nodded. I bowed and exited the room, feeling restless.
I went into Ojo-sama’s room and informed her that I had become her personal butler and that she could now ask me anything she wanted.
“So I’ll be able to spend a lot of time with Sylas from now on!”
Ojo-sama appears to be very happy.
I corrected her, saying that I would look after her rather than play with her, but Ojo-sama just smiled at me, whether she was listening or not.
I couldn’t bring myself to say anything else because she smiled so sweetly.
Ojo-sama is a naturally good-natured person.
She is carefree, mischievous, and innocent.
However, when she became the crown prince’s fiancée at the age of ten, Ojo-sama began to change gradually.
When Ojo-sama first met Jared-sama, the kingdom’s first prince, she returned to the house with a sparkle in her eyes.
“Listen, Sylas! Today I met with the Crown Prince. He has golden hair and blue eyes, just like the prince from fairy tales! He stated that he intends to marry me in the future!”
Ojo-sama smiles and puts her hands on her cheeks. She seemed to enjoy her first meeting with the prince.
Daughters of noble families, in general, are not free to choose their marriage partners.
I should be grateful that Ojo-sama has had the good fortune to be content with her parents’ choice of a partner.
Nonetheless, my heart aches.
“Well, that’s good…Ojo-sama.”
At first, Ojo-sama was blushing and happy, but then she looked at me and became concern.
“Sylas, what’s wrong? Have you had a bad day? You don’t appear well.”
“No, that’s not the case…”
“I’m sorry. I’m so excited when Sylas is down. Oh, I’ll tell you another amusing story. I’ll ask the chief butler to give you a break, okay?”
Ojo-sama, who is oblivious to my ugly thoughts, raises her eyebrows at me and expresses concern for me.
I felt guilty when I saw her face. I only want Ojo-sama to be happy.
I can only wish Ojo-sama happiness and hope that he and Prince Jared get along well.
