Obviously, It's My Child - Chapter 107
In this house, Iris spoke directly to the other person when she was angry. Sobbing as if she were the saddest person in the world, she would appeal to the Count or her brothers.
The men in the household, who still doted on her as though she was a six-year-old, would unilaterally scold the other party.
And it wasn’t just one or two people who had gotten treated this way.
When she was young, people merely thought she cried a lot because she was emotional and too shy. But if she was still acting like that at twenty-three, it was because she knew what her actions could cause.
Iris would look frightened when other people made even slightly loud noises, but she wouldn’t even blink when the men on her side shouted in her face.
“Comfort her and pamper her all you want. I’ll take the kids and go back to my parents’ house.”
“How can I stay in this kind of house? A father registering a child born outside, a fake mother committing adultery. I can’t believe they’re still trying to form relationship with Klausener amidst all that.”
Though Robert raised his voice, she turned and went into the inner room.
Iris cried for a while, but she couldn’t act as usual towards Robert.
It was because she kept worrying and feeling anxious about the inner room side while Robert didn’t leave her.
Eventually, Iris had no choice but to tell him to go in quickly. She was really worried.
Could the reputation of the Schneider County plummet to the ground because of this? Because of this lie?
She couldn’t even imagine.
‘I’m the only one who can resolve this matter.’
So, she steadied her resolve and prepared to go out.
She put on a pure and pretty apricot-colored dress, and her hair flowed down naturally.
Around her neck, she wore a green gem necklace that looked like it was woven with leaves. She looked delicate and elegant.
The maid asked in confusion.
“Where are you going, Miss?”
“I’m going to meet Erich.”
“You shouldn’t. His Lordship asked you to stay at home, didn’t he?”
“Erich needs to know the situation too. If I stay like this, our household will be in chaos. There’s no way Erich would want that.”
If Dad and Erich were to talk carefully, they would understand.
‘His fiancée’s rumored lover is probably Mom’s old friend. Mom was a singer at the opera house, so it’s natural that she knew a lot of people there.’
Above all, it was so upsetting that Erich was being deceived. Just thinking that he didn’t even know what that woman had done, and was actually worried and caring after that woman made tears well up.
She had to do something about it.
She steeled her resolve and headed towards Duke Klausener’s residence.

At that moment, Claire was strolling through the garden with Lina. Lina wanted to see the fountain in the central garden.
“I’m not causing any trouble, am I?”
“Not at all. You don’t know how good it is that you asked for something first, Lina,”Claire replied with a smile.
Lina’s cheeks reddened.
“I heard I could go out to the garden, but I didn’t have the confidence to go alone. But asking the Baron seemed too strange.”
“We’ve gone through life and death together, haven’t we?”
At those words, Lina covered her mouth with her hand and laughed.
“I should be the one thanking you. I’m still doing it now. Is there anything uncomfortable?”
“Now I’m worried about how it will be once I return home.”
Lina chuckled nervously.
On the first day she was brought here, she was so tense that she could hardly fall asleep.
She intervened because she couldn’t bear to see an innocent person getting hurt, but she never thought things would escalate to this extent.
In fact, she had planned to open the wardrobe and bring Claire out, then return to the opera house through the secret passage, thinking it would all be over.
However, Thomas Borjans’ hideout had been completely demolished by the authorities after the fire, and demolition work was still ongoing to expose the back passage at the opera house.
Most of the employees were taken to the police station. It was to investigate who were Thomas’s associates. And in this era, suspects were generally treated as criminals.
She was terrified when the authorities were looking for her too. But she was summoned not to the police station but to the Duke’s residence.
That was even scarier. Restless, Lina couldn’t even sit properly on the couch and just sat with her butt on the edge, eventually curling up on the soft carpet and dozing off.
She could finally relax after Maximillian, who she knew by face, came and explained the situation.
[ The Baron was extremely worried about you, Miss Lina. ]
[ Oh, is she alright? Is she unharmed? ]
[ She is unharmed. However, due to exhaustion, it seems it will take some time for her to recover. ]
Maximillian spoke with a kind smile.
[ As you know the circumstances, there’s a possibility that the spark might affect you, Miss. So a separate room has been arranged for you. The Baron will probably want to see you when she wakes up, so it would be best for you to rest here for a while. ]
With such reasons, Lina could also relax and feel assured.
She felt as though she had received a tremendous reward for the small kindness she had done as a human being.
There was no shortage whatsoever. The room was luxurious, and hot water was prepared in the large bathtub for her morning and evening baths.
The wardrobe was filled with several neatly tailored day dresses.
Freshly made, hot meals were sent to her room three times a day, and snacks and beautifully arranged desserts came in intermittently.
If she stepped out onto the terrace, she could overlook a beautiful garden, and she could also borrow an excellent music room.
Within three days, Lina’s tension completely melted away, both in body and mind. It was a hospitality Claire prepared with pride.
