“Good lord, good gracious! Lady Radis, how much have you suffered!”
As Brendon was busy preparing Radis’ meals for the last three days, he was also very angry while he was worried about her. But as soon as he saw her gaunt face, his anger melted away like snow, and only his concern remained.
“How is it possible that you’re this thin, did you really not eat anything in the last three days? Goodness, you were so plump before, but…!”
Brendon soon ran back to the kitchen, beating his chest out of frustration all the way.
After nearly fainting last night when she saw how stained Radis’ clothes were with monster blood and how tattered it all was because of Arachne’s cuts, April was similarly furious.
However, April couldn’t hold onto that anger either.
“Lady Radis, I’m so glad that you’re safe. When I saw your torn clothes yesterday… I kept thinking about what kinds of things you had to suffer through…”
April wiped away her tears with her apron.
“Lady Radis, are you in a lot of pain?”
“Please don’t be sick!”
Radis was taken aback by all this.
She hugged Berry, who was close to wailing, and wiped her face which was covered in tears and snot.
Then, April, Nicky, Elise and Tanya all cried and ran straight to her in one huge group hug.
Radis tried not to cry.
However, their tears seemed to be contagious. She felt her nose getting stuffy while her eyes started turning red.
‘Everyone’s so worried about me.’
At the other side of the hallway, she saw Allen covering the lower half of his face with a handkerchief, blowing his nose.
‘All of them… They were so concerned about me…’
Radis had never received this much concern before.
It felt like her heart was full, and she could feel the rising tension all the way to her throat.
Perhaps because of her injuries or perhaps because she felt choked up, but in the end, tears welled up in her eyes.
While hugging back the maids, Radis’ voice shook as she said this.
“I… was thinking only about myself. I didn’t know that everyone would be worried about me.”
And as she said this, she was surprised by her own words.
Truly, she didn’t know.
That anyone could worry about her so much.
It was something that she never felt, even with her family.
Rather, her family detested it whenever she came back injured after subjugating monsters.
If she ever showed any hint that she might be in pain, David would rush into Radis’ room, turning it upside down while shouting, ‘Are you protesting? Are you trying to get me to go on the hunt?!’ And right after shouting, he would leave.
The maids in the Tilrod mansion never brought her any medicine or bandages, and they would also show how frustrated they were that they’re getting extra work because she’s injured.
Margaret was the same.
She would say even more than David would, and she’d glare at Radis while saying, ‘So are you proud that you’re injured?’ and ‘If you remain sick and you’re not going to work, aren’t you just some kind of parasite?’ That’s why Radis couldn’t even eat in peace while she’s sick.
Right now, it was the first time that someone was so worried about Radis that they were crying.
“Come on, let’s stop now!”
With reddened eyes, April spoke up.
“Can’t you guys see Lady Radis’ condition? She needs to rest. Come on, let’s talk about this later. Lady Radis needs to recover first!”
Still sobbing, all the puffy-eyed maids obediently let go of Radis.
Berry led Radis back to her bed, helping her lie down.
“Hiic! If there’s anything, hiic, you need, Lady Radis, hiic! Whatever it is, let me, hiic, know anytime…!”
Berry’s expression was crumpled as she tried to hold back her tears and control her runny nose. But in Radis’ eyes, the maid still looked cute like this, too.
‘Really, Berry is like a little sister.’
Actually, rather than being sick or being in pain, she was hungry right now, so she was about to go down to the dining hall to eat something. But now, Radis decided to lie down in bed a little more to put Berry’s mind at ease.
Besides, she didn’t need to go down to the dining hall.
This was because Brendon and the other maids took it upon themselves to bring her so much food—to the extent that it looked like they moved the entire dining hall.
With her eyes still puffy, Berry gaped absurdly at the sight when she saw the roasted lamb.
“Are we hosting a banquet here?”
And Brendon, who was holding a huge fruit jelly jar, lamented a little.
“I didn’t know what Lady Radis would like to eat, so I just…”
“But how can Lady Radis eat all of this alone?”
Radis herself could only stare at all the dishes that filled the big table, holding back her laughter.
“Then let’s all eat together. Just like Berry said, I can’t eat all this alone.”
Ecstatic, Brendon jumped up and down at the suggestion. The maids said it’s a good idea, and they were more used to it because they usually ate together with Radis, so they just pressed Brendon down on a chair to calm him down.
“I didn’t mean to do this, but…”
Brendon looked like he was about to cry at first, but he soon relaxed and began to slice the food in portions to give to everyone.
“Lady Radis, I’ll give you the best portion. Just salt or the sauce over here is good with the lamb. You can also eat it with some sweetened honey mustard, or mint jelly as a side dish.”
“Brendon, give me some, too!”
“Miss Nicky, you can just get whatever you want yourself.”
“You’re so mean!”
“I was just joking though? Don’t be upset!”
The table soon became rowdy because there were so many people.
Radis laughed with them as other people joked and teased each other, and they enjoyed their time eating together.
