Duke, Please Stop Because it Hurts - Chapter 118
At long last, he settled for a moderately similar kind of family. The bride was never important. In fact, it was only not to listen to his mother’s words once again, where she eventually collapsed after she longed so much for affection.
‘That’s my way of love?’
Raven had a lot of things going on in his head. There had never been a difficult problem which tangled inside of his head. He had never felt more fulfilled in his life with that unfamiliar word of emotions.
“Terrance, is that what you see as well?”
“Do you see me the same way as Lyndon?”
Terrance gulped down at the terrifying tone of his voice.
‘If you’re talking about the same way, then it must be about that thing, right?’
Terrance glanced at Lyndon, who appeared to be looking as if his life was already over. It therefore would be a waste of his sacrifice just to say, no. Ultimately, Terrance had given up on his life as well before choosing to declare his own testimony.
“…yes, it is.”
Even the uptight Terrance had uttered the same thing which made Raven’s expression turn more serious. Raven would then have to look back on his previous behavior if the people around him had definitely said so.
Raven had never been able to objectify his feelings in his life.
Come to think of it, his behavior towards his wife was certainly a little different from when he was with others.
It was just a political marriage, but it still had quite a strange sense to have someone else at home. The person who had greeted him with such a warm look on her face was his wife, who took much greater care.
It wasn’t bad at all when they had overlapped their bodies together. No—in fact, it had been to the point that they could be considered to be the best match against each other. The way she mewled while accepting him all with her petite figure was so lovely that he always looked at her once more.
He was so proud when she tried to do something for him with that soft body of hers. He was only aware through herself that the way she smiled could ever be so pretty.
The conversation he had with her wasn’t so bad either. Rather, it was actually quite fun and during the days when they weren’t all over each other’s bodies, they often had a tête-à-tête.
He didn’t feel any kind of difference between home and the Knights Templar. Recently, however, he had this urge of going home somehow.
The emotions that had been rising ever since morning impelled Raven to be all nervous and anxious. That stuffy feeling had made it difficult for him to act casual.
The moment Raven had hit the desk violently, the office was immediately leaden with silence—heavier than death itself.
“There seem to be times when I can listen to all the stars. I think that the peaceful atmosphere has affected the knights as well, these days.”
Raven looked up before staring down the whole office. In order to not be killed by that fierce gaze of his, people in the office immediately bowed their heads down.
“If you’re going to keep on thinking about useless things, I recommend you have a go around the field.”
Amidst that heavy atmosphere, Raven had lowered his head. But then, he could no longer discern the letters written on the papers—even more so than before.
These were the things that should be finished by today. Raven held a pen languidly against his will. Only then, the knights could barely breathe out as the hand began to move mechanically over the paperwork.
They felt as if they had barely recovered from the brink of death. After voicing out their opinions twice, they ultimately felt like their necks were going to be chopped off to the floor—in a swift.
Still and all, everyone looked hopeful once again towards their Master, who started working once more.
At least, you’re not leaving early right now!
Maybe, they could even avoid working all night. The thought of getting off work right on time had naturally raised the morale of those knights. They gradually breathed a sigh of relief before going back to what was stopped before.
