Duke, Please Stop Because it Hurts - Chapter 135
“Please don’t eat anything aside from what I’ve provided to you for a while. I hope that you will have your meals as light as possible or rather, have something that is easy to digest.”
“Any other precautions that should be taken?”
Raven’s lips appeared to be so sweet as he was listening in silence. If there had been something that wasn’t any good for her, he thought that she should know them as well.
“You are rather weak, you should always be very careful. It has been quite windy lately, so don’t forget to keep warm.”
“I’ll do that.”
The doctor finally left the room after listing out a number of many other precautions. Her arms were already full with those bottles of medicines that were from the drawer itself.
“Did you hear that?”
Molitia’s head immediately tilted in response as soon as the door was closed shut.
“Don’t think about going out even for a while from now onwards.”
“I’m not thinking of going anywhere. Plus, where am I even going with this look of mine?”
“It can’t be better that soon. At least, until the icy breeze fades away.”
Only for some time—that was the plan, but he could no longer put it off now. The weather would only get colder from now onwards. It was crystal clear that his vulnerable wife could never survive through this harsh cold torrent.
“I won’t be going out for a while either—until you get much better. I’ll only be alright once you can withstand the cold wind.”
Molitia’s jaw immediately fell into a drop at Raven’s outlandish remark.
“What about work, then?”
“I can just use up my vacation.”
“You were still busy up to yesterday.”
“It’s okay. I’ve never even taken a vacation before, so I can just take this opportunity to fix that habit.”
Raven gently swept her hair away. In comparison to her already lost complexion, she had also taken on quite a considerable fever.
As he thought about how she should be taking the medicine quickly, he straight away ordered a maid to prepare for a meal. The confused eyes were circling around before they slowly closed themselves.
“Are you really sure that you can take some time off…?”
“If you happen to be busy, but you’re doing this purposely because of me, then you don’t really have to…”
Even while saying so, her words could be heard to hold a very subtle sign of joy. If she were to get sick, she would definitely get weaker as well. It would therefore provide a rather quiet mental stability for her to have someone to trust and rely upon.
Raven slowly let her off the bed before he kissed her on the forehead.
But that was just another point of Raven’s own interest. After a few days of having sent the one-sided notice, Terrance urgently came to visit as a spy.
Molitia, who had already regained her consciousness, was recovering rather quickly. She could already leave her bed after a long time and was now reading a book in her study.
By then, Raven was always by her side, so Terrance had naturally gone into her study as well. Terrance immediately bowed down as soon as the door was opened.
“My Lord! Please return back. The office is now in a state of chaos.”
“Look at where you are raising your voice right now, Terrance.”
He finally realized the moment that he had become too excited by that violent tone of voice. Terrance instantly cleared his throat as he lowered his voice.
“Every ministry has now come to find you—the Duke. And of course, the man who was supposed to be in charge of the main work had already vanished into thin air.”
“Originally in politics, shouldn’t it have never stopped just because a person has suddenly gone missing?”
“Yes. That is very true.”
Terrance responded swiftly. However, his unhidden resentment had made his voice raise surprisingly high.
“Nevertheless, don’t you also know that this task is proven to be difficult without the permission of the very person in charge?”
“That is the reason why I delegated it to you, Terrance.”
Terrance really wanted to hit his forehead with his own palm. His well-known organized appearance was now all over the place. That figure of his was fraught with many circumstances.
“There’s still a limit to what I can actually do as a substitute. Whenever the head of another group of knights arrives, I feel very uncomfortable.”
“It is quite big of a deal for people who don’t usually come for a visit.”
“That is how much of a progress that we have actually made.”
