Doctor Resignation - Chapter 5.2
On the spot, I really wanted to kick that dipshit, but I was just a commoner and Frederic was a nobleman.
It was only then that I could face Erhan, who was eagerly listening to Frederick’s lies.
Erhan’s eyes were black as the night sky. It has natural sparkling as a starry night.
He was a little shorter than me due to poor growth, but I was slightly amazed by his flawless features.
I never gave an impression about Erhan when I saw him being collapse from afar a long time ago, but he was a good-looking boy who seemed to be quite handsome if he grew up well.
‘You were handsome and cute when you were young……’
I stopped recalling the skinny man I saw before returning to the past.
“Do you know me……?“
His voice was full of caution.
I answered enthusiastically while looking at him.
“Erhan Iliad Casseus, you are the future Duke of Casseus.“
I added, “Let’s play ball with me.”
A while ago, I was totally surprised to see Erhan who was too skinny and small. Also, he was ignored by Frederick.
‘What’s wrong with him?’
It was much better than I thought. But I also kept missing the ball Erhan threw to me since I wasn’t very athletic.
But contrary, Erhan was flushed in embarrassment.
“It’s my fault……”
“What are you talking about?”
I asked confusedly as I put my hands on my waist.
I continued, “You are so good that I can’t even throw the ball properly.”
“But brother Frederick said I was wrong……”
‘I couldn’t even catch the ball properly because I don’t like sports.’
I was left dumbfounded by his statement.
“Your Grace, Erhan.”
“Play ball with me from now on. Do not play with Young Master Frederick.”
“Frederick will be alone if I play with someone else……”
“No, you are too good for him, Your Grace.”
I wasn’t lying when I said he’s good.
I glanced at his skinny body one more time and continued, “I really don’t like lying. I am an honest and straight person. Of course, what I said is the truth.”
Erhan looked at me and blinked. His wary voice had been softened slightly.
“Who are you?”
I grinned as I took his hand and led him into the mansion.
“I am Sir Perelman’s new assistant. My name is Lise Estelle, please call me Lise.“
Erhan looked disappointed at my answer.
“Then…… you won’t stay long.”
I glanced down at him because he was shorter than me. His voice grew smaller and smaller.
“Perelman’s assistants never stayed long.”
“I’m not the same.”
I answered lightly as if it were insignificant.
“I was a much smarter and better doctor.”
Erhan’s face was still full of doubts.
“I told you I really don’t like lying. Let’s see if I will stay long or not.“
He didn’t seem to believe it, but just I smiled because I felt like I was dealing with a cute little kid.
“Your Grace, you have to promise me.”
“I will never be kicked out, so I will play ball with you, study with you, and I will stay with you, always. Then……”
I stood up firmly, looking into Erhan’s black eyes.
“You have to believe me, and do as I tell you.”
“W-what? Why me?”
“I told you. I’m an honest, smart, and great person. So you have to listen to me. Most likely, my advice will be quite similar to Sir Perelman’s, but……”
First of all, I don’t know the cause of Erhran’s chronic disease, and I don’t know how it got worse, so I need to watch over him.
Every chronic disease must have a way to be cured. Of course, it is important to eat well and be active while growing up.
It seems like he was brainwashed for a long time by Frederick, his only relative. But I managed to get along with him. It was the best thing that ever happened so far.
I said gently as I removed the leaves from his head, “I will stay here until you become healthy and become the Duke.”
Erhan looked up and said, “What if I become the Duke?”
“Will Lise still be here?”
I haven’t thought about it in detail yet.
This is because I have never lived a life after nineteen years. Maybe…… find my family or make a new one?
“Why not? If you are healthy, surely I can stay here.”
I recalled the weak nineteen-year-old Erhan.
Until that time comes, I must teach him and raise him well.
“Well, you still have a lot of time before becoming an adult.”
