After I Sent the Divorce Letter, My Husband Went Mad - Chapter 15
ﾟ･ : * ✧ * :･ ﾟ
The graduation ceremony is over. To commemorate the event, there was time separated to draw a painting of everyone, so people gathered around in a huddle.
The sketch was done quickly. Lucis then said he would frame the picture and send it back later.
The painting was completed quickly as it was drawn only in black and white lines. After they finished painting, they had free time. Since most of the people attended events with their lovers, they went around the academy in pairs.
Leilia stood alone.
Then, Lucis came up to her and spoke to her.
“Have you met yet?”
“No, I just saw his face.”
When they met earlier, Cassel suggested they go to the academy together though Leilia did not know when he would come. As she was waiting for him, a man suddenly walked towards her.
The man with brown hair and fancy clothes was Leilia’s senior when she was in school.
[ T/N: Important~! I just wanted to note that both Leilia and Cassel are addressing Juron as ‘senior.’ However, because of the setting of the novel, which is European — the culture of referring to people like that doesn’t really exist, eg. Senior Juron — in addition to the time period of this book as well. So, I’ll be omitting the title, but I’ll still use ‘senior’ when someone addresses him still! ]
Seeing him, her expression hardened a little. Evidently, she was not happy to see him at all.
‘…I can’t believe I met this guy.’
“As expected, it was you. You didn’t come other years?”
“I just came this year.”
“I see. But, why are you alone?”
Juron asked, tilting his head.
“I’m waiting for my party.”
Still, Cassel has not come out yet.
“You’re really pretty today. Well, you were pretty when you were at the academy as well.”
This was why she was sick and tired of him. It was because he was the senior who publicly told her to be his mistress.
“Why don’t you leave your party and just go with me?”
“I’m going with my party.”
At her refusal, Juron grabbed her arm.
“Don’t be arrogant.”
Saying so, he tightened his grip on Leilia, who was trying to shake her hand away. It was as if he was saying, ‘Do you think you can shake my hand away?’
“Let me go.”
“I told you to come with me.”
Before Lucis could step forward, someone suddenly found them and stopped him.
“Senior, what are you doing?”
Before she knew it, Cassel was already approaching them. He glared at Juron, who was forcibly holding her hand. At the same time, Juron glanced at Cassel as he asked with a flustered smile.
“Was her party you?”
“Oh, I’m sorry. I was just joking.”
Juron released her hand and left quickly after he heard the answer. In response to his reaction, Leilia stared at him with her eyes wide open. To make Juron, who was famous for his persistence, run away like that… What happened between the two of them in the past?
“Lady Leilia, have you been waiting for a long time?”
“A little bit.”
“People are trying to hold onto me, so it took a while to come out.”
Apologizing, he held her hand tightly. As he took her hand, it seemed as though the displeasure she felt where Juron touched had subsided.
‘…Yeah, that’s right. It’s like Cassel’s magic.’
“What did that man do?”
“Well, he might have tried to. He’s the man who was persistent enough at trying to make me his mistress.”
Saying so, Leilia squinted her eyes for a moment and looked at where Juron had disappeared.
“Because he’s the heir to the marquis.”
Cassel’s face darkened as he muttered.
“Lady Leilia is very popular.”
“That’s not true.”
At that, Leilia shook her head.
“No. I’ve heard a lot about it at the academy.”
‘…What did he hear?’
However, instead of answering, Cassel just grinned before walking her through the academy.
There was a gentle breeze.
When they entered the park of the academy, they could see the nicely arranged trees. Pink flowers blooming on the branches fell and flowed in a curve. Leilia paused for a moment as she gazed at the flowers. At the same time, even though Cassel was also smiling as well, he was focusing on her instead of the flowers.
“There’s a coffee shop?”
It was not there when she was here back then.
“Do you like coffee?”
“I enjoy it sometimes.”
“Then, I’ll go buy it.”
Cassel seemed to like coffee as much as she did. While he went to buy coffee, Leilia looked at the flowers and thought to herself for a moment. Until a few months ago, she never expected to be spending time with him like this.
He was kind and gentle to her.
‘I’m weak at things like this.’
Since she had to always deal with people who oppressed her, it was difficult when a man treated her like this…
In addition, she did not want to break the nostalgia of her childhood, that was why she deliberately did not meet him as an adult because she wanted to preserve her fantasy.
Eventually, he came back with two coffees.
As she looked up at him, Cassel avoided her gaze slightly before he handed her the coffee. With his cheeks flushed, he faced her again. Somehow, it brought a smile around her lips.
“Cassel, what will you do after graduation?”
