I Unintentionally Cured the Grand Duke’s Insomnia - Chapter 65
33. — I Got Hit In the Back of My Head (1)
“Young Lady, is there something you were worried about?”
At Lily’s careful question, I turned my head after staring blankly out of the window.
“You seem to have calmed down after you went to see the Grand Duke yesterday.”
Lily nodded her head cautiously at me, puzzled as I questioned back. I stared blankly at her before shaking my head hastily.
“Oh, no. I’m totally fine.”
“Maybe it’s just because I’m a little tired? I went to see the festival yesterday since it was a holiday yesterday.”
“Did you watch the festival in the square yesterday?”
“Yes. It was my first time at a festival, and it was amazing.”
Lily, who listened to me, looked quite moved and she uttered, “I thought it would be difficult for the Young Lady to be in a crowded place, though I’m so glad.”
“Of course. I’m perfectly healthy now.”
“Oh. Then, did the Young Lady see the fireworks display yesterday?”
“Yes, I heard it was very pretty because it was prepared with great care by the tower.”
Hearing Lily’s chattering words, I smiled awkwardly. It was because I think I saw something like that, though I could not remember it exactly.
“…I think I saw it, but I don’t know.”
“What do you mean?”
“Just… I was busy eating.”
It seemed like he had answered Lily’s question insincerely, but it was true.
It was undeniable that I was feeling strange at the news of Irene’s return, and it was also true that I ate sweet snacks nonstop to relieve my mood. Considering the number of strawberry lollies, chocolate, and cookies I ate yesterday, it would not be surprising if I had diabetes.
Recalling what I ate while enjoying the festival all day yesterday, I glanced at the jerky bag on the side table and asked.
“By the way, what about Noya?”
“He went out again today.”
“I think it was inconvenient to travel in a human form, so these days, he went out in an animal form altogether. Where could he be going…”
“I’ll have to ask him when he comes in today.”
“Yes, I think it’d be good.”
After drawing the curtains that were fluttering in the wind, Lily turned to me as she pointed at the jerky bag on the side table.
“Did the Young Lady buy this jerky at a festival to give it to Noya?”
“Since it was a festival day, they must’ve sold all sorts of things, right?”
“Yes. There’s a lot to see, a lot to eat, and a lot of people…”
As I answered her words, I suddenly remembered the figure of Cus I saw in the square yesterday. Of course, I was still not sure if it was him or not. Seeing me quiet, Lily looked back at me and asked after she had tied the curtains neatly.
“Then, would you like to rest at home today?”
“…No, I think I need to go out for a little bit today.”
“I want to go to the Waffle publishing house.”
“Yes. I think I need to see Cus.”

“Do you have any concerns?”
Looking at Cain, who was eating the stew, Roan questioned carefully. At the sudden question of his butler, Cain said with a frown on his face.
“Does it look like that?”
At the butler’s resolute reply, Cain widened his eyes as if a little startled before a slight smile formed on his face.
Roan added cautiously to his smirking face.
“Has your insomnia started again?”
“Not really. You caused needless worry.”
There seemed to be no lie in Cain’s answer. For fear that his master had fallen into terrible insomnia again, Roan’s heart, which had been fretting, finally jumped at its own pace. Relieved, he then continued his words with a slightly relaxed mind.
“Then, what happened to the hypothesis Your Highness spoke of earlier? The hypothesis that Young Lady Adelia’s voice as she reads may be the cure for your insomnia?”
“Oh, I guess that hypothesis was not right.”
“It isn’t right?”
“I made her read almost every genre of books just in case, but I couldn’t sleep from any genre except for that book.”
“So, it meant that there’s not a secret in Adelia’s voice, but that there’s a secret in the book.”
Roan, who seemed to ponder for a moment at Cain’s calm reply, asked again reluctantly.
“Still, it can’t be said that Young Lady Blaise isn’t very special, isn’t she?”
The next moment, he quickly resumed his words to his master, who just gazed at him without saying anything.
“I certainly saw it when I went to deliver sandwiches on your orders. There were no signs of her falling asleep at all. So, that probably means that the Young Lady couldn’t sleep even if she read the book.”
“Unlike the others.”
