The Sleepless Night of the Maid — Chapter 62
Translator: Scarlet / Editor: Scarlet
Late in the morning, the Duke of Kensington was busy. It was because the Crown Prince and the guards arrived here last night and were staying. Like most nobles, the Crown Prince had not yet appeared after having a late breakfast in his bedroom.
“I mean, the Crown Prince. I’ve never seen anyone so handsome.”
“Yeah. Even if he just stood still, his body glowed. He was so cool when he came running with the knights, I almost fell.”
Two maids who had been throwing away the garbage were chatting as they walked. Naturally, the main story was a tribute to the appearance of the Crown Prince. All night long, tales poured out and were speculated between the maids and the servants repeatedly. It was something they didn’t get tired of doing.
“But why did he come all of a sudden? Did you say that the Imperial Family also gave false information about the vacation date?”
The maid with an empty basket looked at the maid walking empty-handed and asked.
“You don’t know why? He’s here to see Miss Olivia.”
The maid, who usually had broad and shallow information, answered with her eyes wide open.
“Really? Isn’t he here to see the Duke?”
“Anyway, the Duke and Lady are leaving for the capital in a few days. He can see them in Montana too, so why did he have to come all the way here? Did he come here just to see them a little earlier?”
“Then, is it really because of her?”
The maid, who was holding the basket, asked as if she had never thought of it. Among the interesting stories, the main subject was the love between a man and a woman. In particular, the romance between a handsome man and a beautiful woman explodes people’s interest. It was only natural for the employees of the Duke’s house to cheer.
“The Crown Prince said that whenever he went on vacation, he would only talk to Olivia. The two of them have been friends since they were young, and as they grew up, their hearts grew.”
Just as the story being told was twisted, it was also a moment when it became so.
“That’s not all. That’s what I heard.”
The maid, who was continuing to speak, stopped in her place. She looked around as if it were a great secret, and whispered.
“The deal is that our little girl will be the next Crown Princess.”
“What? So who is that ex-fiance?”
“Are you talking about his broken engagement? I don’t even know if she is dead or alive.”
“But… He said that the Crown Prince and she never even met during their engagement?”
“That’s right. So, if your Highness had married his ex-fiancee, would he have had a crush on her? Like Miss Olivia, even as a friend, he saw her a lot, so your feelings for love grow.”
They were so engrossed in the story that they forgot where they stood. He followed the wall and stopped under a window. They couldn’t even imagine that someone was listening to them while pondering by the wide open window.
Edward’s jaw, who was standing by the window with his arms crossed, tightened. The form of rumours varied from person to person, but this was too far from the original.
He thought about taking them and punishing them for a while, but it was useless, so he changed his mind. There was one thing that caught his attention. The moment Eva’s existence became a topic of discussion, they treated it so insignificantly. That was a bit annoying.
Edward made up his mind and turned his gaze to the distant forest. After a while, with a squeaking sound, two wagons appeared. It was a four-wheeled carriage and a large wagon.
The wagons got closer and closer and stopped in front of the castle gate, at a distance he could see. The wagon had Delafone leaves painted on it.
He didn’t think there were any noble families that had a Delafone leaf as their coat of arms.
Edward continued to watch them without thinking.
As if they were waiting, the butler of the Duke’s Castle and two male servants came out to meet the owner of the carriage. The butler approached and opened the door, revealing a young man in fine clothes. With short wavy black hair and a sharp, slim face. He was tall and slender, but he had a solid overall impression.
Even though he couldn’t see them very well, Edward was looking down there as if he was appreciative.
The young man who got off first reached out to someone in the carriage. After a while, someone’s hand was placed on it, and soon the profile of a woman appeared.
Blonde hair cascaded over her slender arms and delicate shoulders. The profile of the woman in the narrow-brimmed hat was slightly reflected. Due to the angle of the carriage and the hat, her face was somewhat familiar but was difficult to see…
