Secret Private Life of the Villainous Grand Duke - Chapter 55
When she opened the letter, there was only one sentence written in it. In the same scribbled handwriting as the initials.
[He’ll write you, wow.]
How cheeky……. Thinking of Tobias’ cold eyes and ear-piercing voice made exciting goosebumps fill Lily’s body.
“Julia, could you give me a pen?”
Lily, who was handed the pen, wrote something on the back of the letter. She didn’t even need to use a separate letter paper. Because it wasn’t worth it.
Lily wrote down a single word and put it in Julia’s hand. Just writing a word felt like a waste. She wanted to completely ignore the reproachful man’s letter.
“Please pass this on to Tobias of the Winkler family. And this…….”
Lily gulped as she saw another letter underneath. F and G. A neat and elegant handwriting. It can’t be compared with Tobias’ handwriting.
She didn’t even have to think hard about who it was. From that day on, Lily had never forgotten those friendly reddish-brown eyes of that man.
The letter was written with neat handwriting. Lily read the sentences that the string of letters made, going through them in her head.
[Missing you who is as lovely as a little rabbit. I’ll wait for you at the mansion. Looking forward to seeing you again.
With a longing heart. Felix.]
Felix was really the perfect man. Lily thought so. She could feel his kindness even from a letter.
If this is reality, she should marry a man like this. Lily even thought about that. The thought of throwing everything away and going down the Felix route.
But she wasn’t sure if there was even a Felix route.
She doesn’t want to ruin everything just because he’s a little more suitable. Lily took a grip of her heart. In the end, this is a game, and they are just characters.
“Please prepare a carriage. I’m going to eat dinner at Duchy Gaunter tonight.”
Julia looked worried. She heard rumors that Felix, the only son of Duke Gaunter, is a wonderful person, but she wondered if Lily will be alright.
Saying so, Moritz also has a good reputation. If the master that Julia had served had not been involved with Moritz, she too would have thought of Moritz only as a well-known Grand Duke.
But now Moritz felt suspicious. Julia felt strangely worried every time Lily went to Kneiss mansion.
The change in Lily wasn’t just about speaking respectfully to Julia. She asked a lot of questions about the men and sometimes dressed oddly. It was also around the same time that she began putting on makeup.
“Then, you’ll be coming back after dinner…… ?”
“I don’t know until I get there.”
Lily cut the steak into bite-sized pieces as she said so. She opened her mouth and stuck out her tongue to take the steak on the fork.
She doesn’t intend to come back tonight…….
Julia went down to wait for the carriage with a sad look. Inside, she was blaming Grand Duke Kneiss, who must have corrupted the Miss she served.
Finishing her meal, Lily changed and got ready quickly. The dress she picked out was a fluttering flowery-pink dress.
The dress gave both a modest and a bright charm, but the greatest benefit was that it was easy to take off.
The dress could be easily taken off the slim Lily, whether from top or bottom, by simply untying the ribbons around the waist. It’s a really nice dress to take off.
Lily had such an insidious thought and headed to the mansion of Duchy Gaunter.
“Shall I stop at the front door?”
“No, drop me off near the mansion’s back gate.”
Lily replied firmly.
She can’t afford to be the gossip at the upcoming banquet. She knew she would be an easy prey to be gossipped in social circles if she walked through the front door.
“Do you really mind if I drop you off here, Miss?”
“I’ll spend the night here, so don’t worry and go back.”
Lily got off at the back gate and walked in slowly. Duchy Gaunter was beautiful even from behind. A dark blue roof on the pure white mansion. Lily walked slowly while appreciating the beautiful building.
Felix, who was sitting by the sunny window and reading a book, happened to see Lily coming through the back door.
Lily? Felix closed the book he was reading, grabbed his jacket, and ran down. He finally stood in front of her, gasping for breath.
Lily looked up at him with a smile. Felix held Lily tightly in his arms, and with a welcome voice.
“I missed you.”
Lily’s heart tickled as she listened to those words, like she had an affair.
* * *
Felix hugged Lily in his arms and didn’t let go after a long time. Even in that restrained act, she could vaguely sense his possessiveness.
“Are you going to choke me to death?”
“N, no. I’m sorry. Are you okay?”
Lily said playfully, with the intention of making fun of him. Felix could only realize how tightly he had been holding her. He hurriedly loosened his arms, fearing that Lily would feel hurt.
“The mansion is very beautiful, just like you.”
“Thank you. Do you want to take a little walk? The garden by the front gate will be much more beautiful.”
The word ‘beautiful’ does not really impress Felix. He has always been complimented about his looks every time. He was worried that Lily might be cold rather than the compliment.
He carefully draped the jacket he had been carrying over her shoulder. Lily smiled shyly, feeling his jacket with her hands.
She felt her emotions clashing like a girl in her puberty whenever she stood in front of him.
“That’s good. I wanted to take a walk in the garden.”
As she walked alongside Felix, she glanced at him. He was only wearing a plain shirt and trousers, yet he was somehow cool. Was this the reason he was ranked as the most loved character by players?
The soft light brown hair was also pretty. The color became very bright under the sunlight.
She wanted to touch it. Suddenly thinking of that, Lily stretched out her hand, but she pulled it back when it felt like Felix’s gaze looking down at her had scalded her.
Their eyes met. Lily smiled awkwardly. Felix also gave her a friendly smile. He fidgeted with his hand. Every time his hand passed the back of Lily’s hand, he wanted to grab it.
