I Became the Tutor of the Royal Twins - Chapter 211
Rosé recited the title that was printed out in gold leaf.
As with Sera’s usual fairytale books, it was difficult to guess the contents of the book from just the title alone. Even so, Rosé tilted her head to one side and was even more perplexed this time because this title seemed much stranger than the others.
“Hey, Rosé. I think I get it. Like you said, the duke isn’t dressed properly, so he must be sick—he’s sick from a hot disease that’s making him too warm! That’s why people around him are teasing him for taking off his clothes every day!”
“You think so? But what about the lady here?”
Rosé pointed to the female protagonist.
But unfortunately, Ferre didn’t have an answer for that.
This was because Sera, who they didn’t know when exactly appeared behind them, took away the book that they were reading.
Rosé frowned a lot at Sera, who seemed to be sweating for some reason.
“Sera! Me and Ferre were gonna read that!”
“No, you can’t.”
While holding the book, Sera stretched her hand high up so that the twins couldn’t reach it. Then, while firmly refusing to let them read it, she put the book on the highest shelf that the children definitely wouldn’t be able to reach.
Still, Sera’s expression continued to be stiff as if she hadn’t yet found the thing she was looking for.
“Sera, what’s wrong?”
Rosé asked, confused.
“Where are the rest of the books?”
It was at that moment.
“Hyuuuuung! Look at these books! Please read them for me!”
Running away, Ferre had already reached Helios.
* * *
Helios couldn’t help feeling conscious around Sera, so it’s been awkward between the two of them since a while ago.
He had only recently realized his own feelings for her, and even as Sera looked quite gloomy, everything about her still made his heart throb.
Perhaps because he knew his feelings now, laughable as it was, he kept wanting to gaze upon her face.
That’s why he purposely turned his head and looked out the window.
Blinking with bright eyes full of anticipation, Ferre handed over three books.
He picked up the book unconsciously, but now, he couldn’t help but look at the books and Ferre alternately.
He quickly covered his mouth with one hand, but overcoming the unpleasant feelings within him, a smile found its way to his lips.
“Hyung, Heli Hyung. Why are you smiling?”
Ferre asked curiously like a little puppy wagging its tail.
“Ah, it’s nothing, Ferre.”
With a languid smile, Helios pushed the books far out of Ferre’s reach.
It was sheer curiosity that led his hand to reach for one of them.
He had heard about these kinds of novels here and there, but it’s his first time actually seeing one in person.
Upon the luxurious black cover, the male and female protagonists were in quite a dangerous and provocative pose. And, by all accounts, the revealing clothes they were wearing did not look quite like what people ordinarily wore.
“Rosé told me I shouldn’t wear nothing—like that guy. Hyung, too. Don’t do that ‘cause you’ll catch a cold.”
The innocent baby brother smiled broadly, bright eyes twinkling in anticipation as he waited for Helios to read the book to him.
Clearing his throat once, Helios coughed in vain.
He smiled at Ferre as though there’s nothing unusual going on.
“Where did you find these books, Ferre?”
Ferre, this sweet summer child, smiled and pointed with his chubby finger at the bookshelf that he had just come back from.
“Over there. At Sera’s bookshelf.”
So that’s why Miss Popo ran like that. A playful smirk slowly tugged up on the corners of Helios’s lips.
“Have you read this book yet?”
“No! Not yet. I wanna ask Hyung and Sera to read it.”
“Is that so?”
Of course, the child wouldn’t have been able to understand it even if he read it.
It’s fortunate anyway. Helios relaxedly leaned back against his chair so that Ferre wouldn’t be able to read any of the book’s contents.
Then, he skimmed through the book titled, 〈 Long, Long Nights with the Beastly Marquis – Unabridged Edition 〉.
A sigh broke out from Helios’s lips. The book was full of words that were much too unfamiliar to him, more than he had expected.
He couldn’t believe that Miss Popo was reading such a thing. He was quite astounded.
Then, he was robbed of the book.
“This… You can’t!”
Helios raised his head and looked at the woman who took the book away from him.
Surprised by her own actions, Sera’s eyes went wide.
“Your Majesty! I’m sorry! I apologize immensely!”
Sera immediately dropped to a deep bow, the tips of her ears bright red.
How dare she steal something that His Majesty the Emperor was looking at.
It was a gravely sinful act of insolence and impropriety.
However, when she saw that Helios was holding one of the books, Sera couldn’t stop her own hands from snatching it away from him.
The only thing filling her mind right now was several different hiding spots she could use to make sure that no one would be able to see them again.
She didn’t even read these novels very often.
However, after she bought the Imperial Magazine before, she got interested in these novels and purchased them ‘a few times’.
No one visited her at home anyway, so she just put them out in the open on her bookshelf, not knowing that she’d get caught like this.
She suddenly recalled the novels and ran, but of all the books Rosé and Ferre could have gotten, of course it happened to be these. Besides that, they even brought some to Helios.
All Sera wanted, here and now, was to disappear into dust. But since that wasn’t possible, she just hugged the book that she had taken away from Helios.
