Chapter 66. Secret Conversation (2)
Weekly Chapter (1/6)
Why did they need so much luggage if they were only two people? Anyone seeing this would think they had moved because they had sold the house.
“It looked like it was an evacuation for a war.”
“I don’t just have a mansion.”
He wondered if she had another mansion in Eternia.
Now that he thought about it, there wasn’t just luggage for two people.
“They go to Eternia too?”
Lilia was also sweating as she carried her luggage to the carriage.
“Why? Do you want me to come with you?”
“Yes. I think it’s the first time she’s going abroad, so it will be difficult for her to adapt.”
“The girl decided to accompany us on her own initiative. She’s probably learned new things lately, so she wants to experience bigger waters.”
Lilia had a strong desire to have a good life. Perhaps she had become a bit greedy due to her young age.
She could experience more things in Eternia than in Wiesel.
“Anyway, are you ready?”
He had something unfinished.
“No, I have to do something.”
He hurried into the mansion.
“Why is he in such a hurry?”
He walked quickly through the corridors of the mansion until he entered a room.
On the desk was a box wrapped in paper.
Surely it was what he had asked the butler for.
He saw a silver necklace with rubies when he removed the wrapping. It was handmade.
The necklaces had more value than the rings, even though the gemstones were small. He hoped Sylverine would appreciate it.
He took out an unfinished item from the drawer. It was a charm made of meteoric iron. It was small, so he could fix it in more places.
I won’t be able to finish it until at least midnight.
The dawn had come, Sylverine was still awake.
She read a letter in a chair, with only a candle for light.
She touched her lower lip with her fingertips. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
She smiled happily as she read the letter.
She had already read it three times.
She could not sleep because she had done it at noon, and she had many thoughts in her mind after reading the letter.
She heard someone’s footsteps.
Soon, that person knocked on the door.
It was rare for someone to visit her room at this hour.
The door was carefully opened.
It was Damien.
“I didn’t think you were awake.”
“Did you have any significant dreams?”
Damien cleared his throat sheepishly.
He approached her with his hand behind his back.
Sylverine didn’t even take her eyes off the letter.
“I don’t know what you have in your hand, but leave it on the table.”
Damien put down a small box on the table, then glanced at the letter she held in her hand. It was stamped with the seal of the Order of Knights.
“Is the letter about the backing?”
Damien’s face turned rigid.
“It’s a letter of apology from the Knight Commander.”
“He sincerely apologizes for disrespectful words that are against chivalry. Do you know what it means?”
“In the future he will send a delegation to present a formal apology.”
“What do you intend to do about it?”
It was then that she finally lowered the letter she was holding and looked up.
Damien nervously responded.
“This is not necessary. We have to go to Eternia now…”
She continued after a brief pause.
“I don’t get too angry because someone has already taught the culprit a lesson.”
Damien stiffened for a moment, then abruptly took his leave.
“…Then I’m going.”
She stopped him.
“Why are you running away? I’m not done talking to you. I’m not mad at you.”
When Damien averted his gaze, she laughed.
She thought his reactions were funny.
“What is this?”
Sylverine asked as she lifted the box.
Damien awkwardly said,
“I thought you would look nice with this accessory, so I chose to give it to you.”
She opened the box. Inside was a necklace with a charm that looked like a flower.
The charm had a ruby in the center. It was meticulously crafted.
She pouted her disapproval.
“This is it?”
“You just came to put this present on my table? Isn’t there something else?”
Damien stiffly responded.
“I don’t know…”
Sylverine deeply sighed.
“I’ll tell you.”
Then she tugged on Damien’s wrist.
She placed the necklace over his palm.
“Put it on me.”
Sylverine bent over in the chair to show her back to Damien. She held her hair above her head.
Her white neck was exposed.
Damien held his breath.
“My arm hurts, quick.”
Only then did he realize what she wanted.
Damien hesitated for a moment, but went over to her to put the collar on.
Damien’s hand trembled slightly as it brushed Sylverine’s collarbone.
Her lips formed a small smile.
“Only now do I see the benefits of my efforts to train my student.”
