“The Miss’ bedroom is over here, and your dressing room is inside. You may use everything here comfortably. If there’s anything else you need, feel free to—”
“I believe there’s been a mistake.”
Allen, who was showing Radis around, looked back after hearing her say this.
“This room is too big.”
Radis struggled to think of what to say.
It was clear that there had been a mistake.
Perhaps Yves Russell told his employees that Radis was a ‘guest’.
That’s why Allen had thought that Radis was someone to be treated well like this, so this room was prepared. She had to inform Allen first before he could get in trouble.
But she didn’t want to say it like she was blaming Allen for the mistake.
With a smile that was stiff with tension, Radis spoke.
“I don’t need a room this big. A small bedroom would be enough.”
Allen’s eyes trembled.
However, as an experienced butler, he quickly regained his composure.
“Miss Radis, I’ve only followed Milord’s orders.”
“Marquis Russell always treats the guests who visit his estate accordingly. And Miss Radis is a guest who deserves this much.”
“Milord will be calling you before dinner takes place. In the meantime, you may rest well. And if you need anything, you may always pull this rope here.”
Allen bowed politely and left through the door.
And so Radis was alone in that spacious room.
She was about to place her bag on the table, but she thought better of it and just set it down on the floor.
She approached a vase with fresh flowers in it, looking as if they’d just been picked from the garden, and took a whiff. Then, with her hands clasped together like a squirrel, she looked at the paintings hanging on the walls of the drawing room.
Inside the display cabinets that were on each wall, there were colorful tea sets, plates and ornamental pottery that, at one glance, definitely looked expensive. She wondered if they could possibly be used as mere tableware.
When she saw those, Radis grew scared.
‘If someone steals these, will I have to compensate for them?’
Radis carefully opened the door of the cabinet.
Fortunately, the cabinet was locked. However, the glass of the cabinet was so thin that it would easily break with just one hit.
‘If I hear anything breaking, I’ll need to run out to catch the thief.’
After making a weird vow, Radis picked up her luggage and entered the bedroom that Allen showed to her earlier.
The drawing room made her sigh, but the bedroom was even more troubling.
By the window was a picturesque marble table that would be perfect for a princess of a kingdom to use, and there was a silver candlestick placed atop it.
In addition, the walls were covered with silk wallpaper that had gold linings, and on the bedside table, there was even a gold vase.
Dark clouds were cast over Radis’ face the moment she saw that vase.
“It’s not solid gold, is it?”
Radis stared at the vase carrying white roses in it with a grave expression.
“It should just be gold-plated… It just has to.”
However, even if it was just gold-plated, it still looked extremely expensive.
Radis ever so carefully, with both hands, pushed the vase nearer to the wall. As much as possible.
Even if she was placed here by mistake, if she would hit this in her sleep by mistake…
It was a terrifying thought.
And then there was the bed.
It was a spacious bed that could easily fit two or three people. She could even train her swordsmanship atop the canopy if she wanted. It was a beautiful ornate bed, and she could imagine a princess laying there with her golden hair splayed out around her.
Radis reached out one hand as a test, then pressed the sheets.
The silk fabric was endlessly smooth and soft. It felt like a cloud.
A sigh flowed out by itself.
After changing into the cleanest shirt and pants she had, Radis waited anxiously for Yves Russell.
There was only one thought in her mind.
‘This isn’t right.’
Yves Russell might be under some serious misunderstanding.
He seemed to be delusional enough to think that Prince Olivier had fallen in love with her at first sight when all he saw was a gentlemanly act on the prince’s part when he helped Radis up after she tripped.
Otherwise, this kind of treatment was just absurd.
‘I don’t deserve to be indulged like this…’
While sighing, Radis suddenly found herself reflected in the mirror of the vanity table.
She looked like a shepherd boy who had a grim expression after having been robbed of all the sheep.
‘Prince Olivier likes me? That doesn’t make sense. Wouldn’t it be more plausible to misunderstand that I was the one who fell in love with him?’
The moment her thoughts went crazy to this extent, Radis was shocked to see how she blushed so much that even her neck and forehead were bright red.
“Me? That’s me? My… My face turns this red when I’m embarrassed?”
She never owned a big mirror before, and she had never blushed in front of any mirror at all, so it was her first time seeing herself like this.
While looking at her own face out of curiosity, the red color gradually disappeared and her skin returned to its original complexion.
“Was I this red when I met the prince? Then I would have looked like a red person wearing a pink sponge. I might have looked more like a cooked shrimp and not even human…”
