Every Night, I Come To His Bedroom - Chapter 20
Every night, I Come to His Bedroom Chapter 20
Ellie, who abruptly awoke, had difficulty sleeping. In the meanwhile, Duke Rufus had been covertly expressing his love for her, but this was the first time he had done so openly.
He was interested in me. However, she lacked the guts to expose herself just yet.
Seeing the disappointed expression on Duke Rufus’s face, she concluded that she could no longer work for him.
I did not want to lose both my career and my love. Since I was acknowledged as an employee who was indispensable to him, I wanted to continue by his side as an essential individual if I was unable to be a woman to his eyes.
After tossing and turning in her thoughts till 12 a.m, she finally fell asleep. But for some reason, she was unable to enter his bedroom even while she was sleeping.
Ellie, upon awakening without a dream, had a perplexed look. It was the first time this had occurred since she consumed the fairy elixir.
What went wrong?
The weekend, when she did not work, prevented her from seeing his face throughout the day. Ellie was irritated and attempted to take a nap, but she was once again prevented from entering his bedroom.
It was the same at night. Ellie, who awoke with a dissatisfied frown, had a gut feeling. that the magical period has ended.
Her eyes filled with tears as she remembered the 100 days she had spent with him.
She knew that this period would eventually end. But she did not anticipate it to end so abruptly.
If only my sentiments hadn’t changed, I suppose I would have been pleased to see him again.
Because I had faith in him in my heart.
It felt as if my heart had been torn open. There seems to be no way to fill this gap.
Ellie, who went to work with a black complexion, stood for a long time in front of his office. Ellie, ultimately lacking the guts to knock on the door, turned around with her head bent.
When she entered the assistant’s office with a weary foot, Arthur, who had arrived at work earlier, waved to greet her.
“Ellie. Greetings in the morning.”
“I believe it’s been quite some time since I last saw you here.”
Now that Arthur has returned, she will seldom see Duke Rufus at work. The thought of moving away from him, who was always with her day and night, breaks her heart, but now is the time to wake up from the dream.
The wonderful dream of one hundred days is ended.
The light in Duke Rufus’ chamber, which had been out for some time, was once again brilliantly illuminated. Raymond gazed with moist blue eyes at the location where she appeared daily.
After many days of insomnia and anticipation, she did not reappear. The exchanges he had with her ran through his head.
Then what if you no longer show up here?
Perhaps my unrequited love has come to an end.
I hope I can resolve the situation soon.
He recalled what he had said and felt remorse.
He did not want to state that.
If he had known her emotions would be so easily resolved, he would not have spoken anything.
“Please appear again. I shall love you more now.”
He was without even a name to miss.
If I had known this would occur, I would have inquired about her identity sooner.
Despite the fact that we had been seeing each other for almost three months, I knew nothing about her.
He had no choice but to hang onto the handkerchief she drew of him and wait for her reappearance.
“Because you will not arrive. Again, the darkness is frightening.”
After her disappearance, Raymond was unable to sleep in complete darkness.
It was not a matter of conquering fear. Only because she was beside him did he not feel frightened.
The night had lasted too long. These extended evenings were always filled with sorrow.
Ellie groaned hard and headed home after leaving work with a fatigued expression. These days, only tears and sighs have risen.
Duke Rufus is a Duke, and he welcomes the daughters of prominent aristocratic families every day.
Social circles were inundated with rumors that he was going to be married shortly. Ellie was skeptical of the rumor. She was aware that he was searching for the lady who had visited him nightly.
I could tell what type of picture he had of me by observing the ladies. They were all young girls from families that could be identified by name alone.
The arrival of the stylish, gorgeous, and stunning ladies caused her to become even more reclusive.
I feared that I would have the confidence to do it, but I would not even be able to observe him from a distance, so I instantly lost my bravery.
“I wish I were as beautiful in real life as a fairy.”
“Do you want it? Go on, tell me. I’ll listen.”
While reciting, Ellie was surprised by the man’s dismal voice coming from behind her.
As she turned back in astonishment, a guy with dark black hair and dark black eyes greeted her.
“Which are you?”
Ellie yelled in a cautious tone as she swiftly grabbed the umbrella from the porch.
“Who do you believe I am?”
A darkness emanated from his body. It resembled a devil.
“Right… a Devil.”
Is he able to read her mind?
He responded with a grin. Ellie’s dark eyes widened in response to his incredible claims.
At that same moment, his body rose into the air. A chilly grin appeared on his face.
“Your father entered my garden without permission and picked the devil’s flower. Therefore, I believe you will have to pay for your misdeeds on behalf of your father.”
He was talking about things that made no sense on a scale of one to 10.
“How can I trust—”
She was again dumbfounded. When he opened his hand, she saw her father in a prison-like setting.
“What have you done to my dad?”
Ellie questioned him with urgency.
“I haven’t done it yet. However, your actions will decide whether your father lives or dies. Is that true? There is no life after death for a soul consumed by the devil.”
His icy words gave her chills. Ellie expelled a long sigh while gazing into his emotionless black eyes.
I could not let my father pass away. I do not know why this bizarre occurrence only befell my father, but now he had no choice but to follow this devil.
“What ought I to do?”
“In contrast to your idiotic father, we get along very well. Simple. Just be my pretend lover.”
I wondered whether I had misunderstood anything. Ellie inquired with a confused expression.
“I must fool a female. Like I no longer adore her.”
A moment of grief appeared in his eyes, something she had not before been able to recognize.
“I will soon depart this earth. When I pass on, your father will also be set free. So until then, pretend to be my sweetheart.”
It reminded her of the devil-related conversation she had with Duke Rufus.
The single weakness of the devil was love. Could this guy, or devil, have fallen in love with a human?
“How did you learn the story?”
In fact, this monster seems to be able to read people’s minds. Ellie stared at him with an uneasy expression as he asked her a question.
“I was informed by my father.”
“Your father was also not an average person. In the first place, normal people do not seek the devil’s flower.”
It seems that her father did not choose the flower at random.
“The devil’s flower is capable of curing all diseases. If you collaborate well, your father will also get the flower. And you want to be beautiful? If you can successfully deceive her, I can make you lovely.”
The devil’s appeal was very enticing. But Ellie was aware that the sweet was toxic.
“I simply said it.”
“It sounds rather grave. Then consider what else you want. I, too, am not that scrupulous demon.”
She never imagined hearing the devil mention conscience.
“You are aware that your father will die as soon as you reject.”
This was not a request, but rather a warning. It appears reasonable that the devil has no conscience.
“Yes, conscience. My heart has become as tender as a human’s.”
Ellie groaned at seeing the enraged monster.
“I’ll assist you. I have no idea whether she will be duped, but I will try my best.”
There was no other means of saving his father. And Ellie was thinking that he didn’t seem like a horrible demon at all.
A demon that developed romantic feelings towards humanity. So, will that lady instead of this monster have an everlasting life?
“Yes. She is unaware that my lifespan has been transferred to her. I didn’t even realize I was going to die shortly. Therefore, you must keep it a secret.”
It seems that even the devil is kind. This demon was upset because he had threatened to kill her father, but he was also rather distressed.
Love seemed to be painful for both humans and demons.
Ellie regarded the demon who had followed the duke and watched him go with an uneasy expression.
“Am I required to do this?”
“She’s very jealous… She went with me wherever I went… you must do this so she can trust you… I like you—”
“She is not even observing us.”
The devil placed his hand on her shoulder as he frustratedly addressed her.
“She is still observing us.”
Ellie’s eyes widened as he said quietly in her ear.
“She was the most accomplished assassin in the Kingdom of Astell.”
The lady he cherished was a killer. Ellie’s body shook by itself for no apparent cause. Perhaps, Ellie will be killed without anyone knowing.
“Don’t worry, it won’t happen. She has not harmed anybody since leaving that position.”
His remarks alleviated some of her anxiousness, but it did not totally go.
“However, do not fret.”
“I know. Stop immediately.”
Perhaps she wanted him to return before the duke’s household staff discovered him. But it seems late.
Ellie spun around in surprise as she heard Arthur’s familiar voice coming from behind. Arthur exited the carriage and cautiously regarded the demon standing next to her.
