Dear Eddert - Chapter 49
“If you come down from there, the brewery.”
Walter added more explanation as Hyemi looked at him with an innocent face.
“It is a place that makes various kinds of alcohol such as beer, wine, and sherry. Trainees have been banned from entering since you were caught secretly stealing cider when you were 15 years old.”
“I did? I can’t drink. I’ve never had it in my mouth.”
Walter simply replied to the wide-eyed Hyemi.
“You were a tough drinker. There was a beer drinking contest at the village festival held once a year, but I, regretfully, always lost the contest.”
“… Who was the winner?”
“Who do you think it was?”
Seeing Walter’s face, who stared at her and asked back, it seemed that she would understand without hearing an answer.
Hyemi cleared her throat and she quickly changed the subject.
“What does that matter? But what is this place for? It looks like a fence.”
“The barn. It is a place where livestock such as chickens, geese and pigs are raised. It was always a quiet place because the trainees didn’t want to go near it because it smelled….”
Walter’s words trailed off in a slow tone. No matter how secluded it was, she did not like romance that blossomed while pigs were grazing. Hyemi nodded her head in agreement.
“Yes. I understand.”
“This is where we train. In other words, the training ground. We called it the square because it is the largest area in the castle.”
The area that Walter pointed to was the most spacious place in the shape of a key from the center of the castle to the gate.
“As you can see, it’s open everywhere, and it’s always full of trainees, so there’s no chance to hold hands in front of others except when fighting physically.”
It was too much to engage in acts of love.
“What is the tower up here?”
Hyemi pointed to the pointed tower in the north that Walter had drawn earlier.
“… Downstairs is the banquet hall and dining room where everyone eats. In the middle is Cedric’s office and weapon storage. The top is the personal space where the lord of the castle resides. It is where you and I are….now.”
If it was the dining room, it was a public place, and if it was the castle lord’s, it meant his father, Valtri. Imagining being caught was horrifying, so Hyemi forgot that she was even in that space.
In front of her shaking her head, Walter drew two rectangles one after the other at the bottom of the elongated building that looked like a tower.
“The first floor is a stable where horses are gathered. And the second floor is the barracks where the trainees stay together as a group.”
“The barracks is not…..a room for two?”
Walter laughed at Hyemi who recalled the college dormitory.
“Did you hear what I said? It is a room for 20 people.”
Twenty people are using the same room. Hyemi shook her head.
“At that rate, I would understand that you keep doing it outside to avoid people’s eyes….”
Hyemi, who was muttering to herself, raised her eyes and looked at Walter.
“I guess there must have been a limit?”
She got it right.
“Did anyone else notice?”
Walter nodded and quietly affirmed.
“It was more strange if people didn’t notice.”
“… How did it happen? There’s no way I advertised all over town saying I was in love with your personality.”
Walter stared at her for a moment before asking her slowly.
“… If you don’t even remember, what do you think my personality is like?”
“Huh? Ah, that’s….”
Not knowing what to say, Hyemi stuttered.
It was true that she couldn’t remember anything about the man in front of her except his name. However, as she listened to him explain the history of the past, Hyemi had the illusion that she had grown closer to him.
Hyemi felt her face heat up several times because Walter didn’t stop looking straight at her while calmly talking. The feeling of how he must have felt towards Eden must have been conveyed through it.
Hyemi has only been with him for two days, the intimate feelings she felt must have been because she is really the woman he was looking for.
“… I just think you’re not one to make a fuss about it.”
Hyemi was sure that the large man in front of her would not have a light personality. He might be cautious and have a sense of responsibility.
“Sorry to break your expectations.”
Staring at her as she blinked her eyes in bewilderment, Walter opened his mouth heavily.
“The first day I joined with you. As soon as the morning dawned, I went to Valtri and said I would marry you.”
“Excuse me… ?”
Valtri’s big hand flew and hit Walter on the cheek hard. Even if Valtri was old, it could not hide the strength of the knight who secretly accompanied the Emperor in his youth. Walter’s body, who was about twice Valtri’s size, swayed sideways.
“Do you understand what you just said?”
“I said I would marry Eden.”
Walter licked his chapped lips casually and repeated the same words again. Valtri asked sharply in a voice filled with anger.
“Are you out of your mind?”
“If you’re worried about it disrupting my training, it’s not going to happen.”
Valtri glared at his son with a serious look. Inside the sunken eyes, the dark eyes shook.
“Do you think that the reason I brought Eden and raised her like your sibling was for this outcome…?”
“Why can I not marry someone who grew up like my sibling? Isn’t that a matter of course for the people of Sernoti’s territory?”
Walter’s gaze, rather questioning his father, did not waver. His gaze was clear enough that it even had a different light shining in it.
“Eden and I aren’t really related by blood, are we?”
It was the eyes of a man who fell in love. It was the eyes that cannot judge anymore.
“… Even if that is the case, I can’t help it anymore.”
Walter twisted his lips in mockery and muttered to himself. As his wrinkled face contorted, Valtri yelled at his son.
“Walter! I only have one child! Are you going to insult your dead mother and me at the same time?”
