The Eldest Daughter Walks Down The Flower Path - Chapter 99
Then, Olivier blinked gracefully towards Radis.
It was just a simple exchange of glances, but Radis was already so stunned.
This was because Olivier, who had his long hair tied back while his bangs were slightly lowered to the side, was seriously so stunning.
Glancing sideways at Radis subtly, Yves spoke up.
“Your Highness, this here is Miss Radis, the eldest daughter of House Tilrod.”
Olivier turned to Radis and smiled faintly.
Radis’ mind went blank.
This was the first time her name had ever been uttered by such a beautiful voice.
It was just her name—something that she heard all the time—but it sounded so completely different once the word flowed out of Olivier’s coral pink lips and pearly white teeth.
It even sounded like a short poem.
As though listening to the whispering air of early summer, perhaps a melody dedicated to the serenade of puppy love, Radis was exceedingly mesmerized.
“What a beautiful name. It suits you.”
Radis tried to say something back.
Thank you, maybe. Or something else. Just… something.
And yet, she couldn’t say anything at all.
Even fairies would not be able to do anything but go down on their knees in front of him and offer flowers to him after seeing his gorgeous purple eyes.
Bernard Langer, branch manager of Pelletier Bank’s main branch, coughed furtively.
He couldn’t help but notice the strange atmosphere that suddenly entered the drawing room, but for him, customer service was a more imperative matter than trying to understand what exactly was going on here.
“Your Excellency, what brings you here today…?”
“Ah, nothing much. You didn’t really have to come here in person, Manager. I’m here to open a new account for Miss Radis.”
“We cannot neglect any transaction of the Marquis’, of course. Please allow me to assist you.”
Until now, Yves had just been looking gleefully between the Radis, who was just sitting there awkwardly, and Olivier. In the end, Yves turned to face Bernard.
“There’s something you need to know. Miss Radis is currently under my and the marquisate’s care, not her parents or House Tilrod, so proceed with that in mind. You have to include that detail while setting up her account.”
“Yes, of course, I understand.”
Soon, another employee brought two copies of the contract.
Bernard set them down in front of Radis.
“Lady Radis, this one the bank’s copy, and this one will be yours.”
Olivier’s sudden appearance here distracted her immensely, but Radis quickly pulled herself together so that she could listen to Bernard’s explanation.
“When opening a new account, you’ll be added to the Pelletier Bank’s client registry in a few business days. Immediate withdrawal is possible in all branches as soon as you may confirm your identity in reference to the registry, and…”
Meanwhile, Olivier, who practically broke Radis’ mental state, continued to stare at her while drinking the new cup of tea that was served to him. He was very relaxed.
And Yves, you ask?
After one employee had set Olivier’s teacup in front of him, she somehow caught a glimpse of Marquis’ Russell’s expression. She had to bite the inside of her lower lip to avoid screaming right then and there.
Dressed in all black, with even a black fur coat to top it off, Marquis Russell was laughing to himself without making a sound at all.
Perhaps it was an auditory hallucination, perhaps it wasn’t, but the bank employee could almost hear the eerie sound of ‘keuhahahaha…’
The atmosphere inside that drawing room was so very weird, but before she knew it, Radis was already very absorbed with filling up the contract.
And after Bernard finished his explanation, he pointed towards the blank space at the end of the contract.
“You may sign here.”
“Um… I have a question.”
“Please go ahead.”
“Would it be possible for my family to withdraw whenever they want?”
“As a rule, that’s not allowed. Besides, His Excellency has entrusted us with your care, so we’ll do our best to keep that trust. It is the bank’s principle that the account holder must personally visit the branch directly for all transactions, such as withdrawal, deposits, issuance of cheques and the application of loans. On the occasion that you cannot come to the bank in person, here is a list of documents that your representative must provide.”
Was it because Yves told her earlier that she should read contracts carefully just recently?
Radis went through each clause in the contract and asked Bernard each and every question that she thought of.
Bernard initially just treated Radis in a business-like manner, but since he was naturally a man who liked his job and liked to explain the intricacies of sales, he also became immersed in his conversation with her.
Moreover, the person in front of him now was someone who could be his granddaughter, and it’s difficult to meet people like her in a bank like this.
He couldn’t help but think she was adorable.
Absorbed in the topics that he and Radis discussed, the prince and the marquis were then left together on the sidelines.
However, as Bernard and Radis’ conversation went on and on without any sign of stopping, the smile on Yves’ lips, little by little, disappeared.
As Yves cleared his throat quite loudly, Radis turned to look at him.
And she saw him mouth something silently.
