I Stole the Child of My War-Mad Husband - Chapter 14
Being embarrassed, I asked a stupid question.
Aren had a small-cute face with black hair that half covered the nape of his neck. At first glance, his appearance looks between a handsome boy and a beautiful woman.
However, his golden eyes like a bird of prey were sharp enough to cover up all such first impressions.
I quietly admired.
‘It’s the first time I’ve ever met someone with the words pretty and cool.’
Regardless of gender, it was an objectively attractive appearance.
“Yes, Madam. I don’t have a surname, so you can call me by my first name.”
I tried not to make an awkward expression on that answer as much as possible.
Because he is lying and I know what his true identity is.
The real name of the knight in front of me is Aisha Ren.
She is the heroine of this world who will later be together with Rupert.
She is now dressed as a man.
‘Honestly, she was the exact opposite of what I had imagined.’
Aren certainly looks pretty at first glance, but the more you look at it, every expression, movement, and tone is truly that of a true knight.
“Nice to meet you, Sir Aren.”
“It’s okay to speak comfortably.”
“Ah… no. Thank you for helping my daughter, Sir Aren.”
“Don’t mention it, Madam.”
Leah also grabbed the edge of Aren’s sleeve and thanked him vigorously once more.
“Thank you, Sir Aren!”
My daughter is really an angel. Leah smiled brightly as she thanked him, but it didn’t last long.
Leah seems to have found something in the edge of Aren’s sleeve she was holding.
Leah’s eyes widened.
“Oh, are you hurt anywhere?”
Then I saw Aren’s arm.
The ends of his sleeves were soaked with blood.
‘Did we catch him on the way to healing the wound?’
I quickly spoke to Aren.
“Oh, so you were going to the doctor? Sorry for interrupting.”
Leah saw his wound and muttered.
Aren quickly responded to Leah’s concerns.
“I accidentally injured during a match. It’s just a minor injury. I’m on my way back from the doctor, so you don’t have to worry about it, Miss.”
“Huh? It doesn’t look like the wound has been healed.”
“It’s because the doctor is away.”
I frowned slightly at his words.
“How come it seems that the doctor is often absent…”
That’s why the apprentice came to treat Leah after all.
Perhaps he thought I had bad intentions, Aren defended the doctor.
“No, Madam, these days there are a lot of monsters appearing and there are a lot of wounded people. All the doctors from the Ainel family must be there.”
In other words, the doctor is not lazy, but are they short of manpower?
“Um, then… aha!”
At that moment, Leah, who had been muttering with deep thoughts in her own way, blinked.
“You can leave it to my mom. If my mom touches it, it does not hurt at all!”
Aren panicked. The Mistresses is more precious than gold in this world
It’s burdensome. Why would someone like that treat him? Aren thought.
“No, Miss. This is not something you need to worry about.”
“Aren’t you hurt? My mom can heal you!”
Leah looked at me with innocent eyes full of trust.
… seeing her like this, I can’t ignore it.
“That’s right, I should do it.”
I smiled brightly as I looked at Aren, who immediately became more bewildered.
“Come on, don’t worry too much.”
Well, Aren seems that he is worried about the sudden treatment of the ‘Vicious Marchioness’.
With such a thought, I laughed at Aren’s uncomfortable expression.
Rupert is weird.
He did exactly the weird thing.
I looked at the colorful gift boxes piled up in front of my eyes.
All of these items are rumored to be difficult to obtain even in the most popular boutiques among the aristocrats.
Gorgeous rings and necklaces, dresses, hats, shoes, lace gloves…
“What is all this?”
The maid politely answered my question.
“It was sent by the Marquis.”
Rupert hates me terribly, but what is this?
The maid replied with a look of perplexity.
“Th-that… well… I’m sorry, Madam!”
She must have been frightened because she thought she had offended the sensitive Marchioness.
“No, you don’t need to apologize.”
I was genuinely curious about Rupert’s intentions.
‘It would be of no use to ask the maid.’
“Didn’t the Marquis go out today?”
“He did, Madam.”
I did not dislike pretty things.
However, considering the sender, I could not just receive it.
‘I’ll have to ask Rupert.’
I immediately left the room. Fortunately, I didn’t have to go all the way to the office to find him.
I just ran into Rupert in the hallway.
I immediately called him.
Rupert stopped as soon as he heard my call. But he still has his back to me.
Then he walked at a faster pace.
He ignores me again.
In the end, annoyed, I shouted.
His fast-paced steps came to a standstill.
[T/N: Now, the original heroine is still a knight named Aren, not Princess Aisha Ren, so I’ll use the pronoun ‘he’ instead.]
