Duke, Please Stop Because it Hurts - Chapter 65
[Volume 2 – The Weak Duchess]
Molitia gradually noticed that her husband had been acting rather strange lately.
Molitia couldn’t shake off that idea of hers. It all started when she had just woken up from her fever.
In retrospect, his behaviour had always been somewhat peculiar. Raven could seem to be uncomfortable in some areas and tried to hide it. Sometimes, she almost saw it as him being embarrassed himself.
Also, he had never let Molitia out of his embrace when the two of them were together. When it was only her feet that tried to touch the floor, he still hugged her in a hurry. It was almost as if she would be in for a deep trouble if her feet had touched the floor.
Molitia had heard from Lili afterwards that Raven was the one who told the butler to lay down the fluffy carpet all over the mansion, just for her sake. Molitia was at loss whether to cry or to laugh from the embarrassment.
‘I wasn’t even hurt, I simply caught a cold.’
However, he was just being benevolent, so she was somewhat convinced by it. Having lost quite an amount of weight as she suffered gravely for 10 days, it would definitely seem severe for the patient from outsiders’ perspective.
Nevertheless, there was also another reason why Molitia was rather convinced of the idea.
After today’s usual dinner, he immediately carried Molitia off to her bedroom. She first felt that it was rather dangerous to be comfortable within his embrace, but still, she couldn’t even move in the slightest within his grasp.
However, it was definitely impossible for her to stay like this all the way. Molitia eventually clutched onto Raven’s sleeve as she set herself down carefully.
“I’m actually all better now.”
Raven stared at her as she uttered.
“Now, the doctor no longer provides me with any medications. She said that it’s never good to only rely on the drugs.”
“Is the doctor making a fool out of you?”
Molitia immediately shook in surprise as reflected in his fierce eyes.
“That’s certainly not it. I’m just saying that I’m all better now. We don’t need any medicine at the moment.”
Even so, she was still taking her medicine which she brought from home, but of course that was a secret. Molitia gulped nervously.
As his gaze was locked into her somewhat confident demeanor, he lowered his eyes rather indifferently.
Her still thin wrists, on top of her thin body. She was even thinner than before she had gotten sick as her previous weight had been lost and she hadn’t regained them yet. Her body was just like a broken glass. Even when it was filled with all sorts of delicacies today, it would be stark empty by the next day.
“Then, I’ll just have you take some necessary supplements in that case.”
A dose of supplements right after the medicine intakes. This was surely not what she had wanted, so her hand clenched on his sleeve even tighter.
“As the Duchy’s doctor, it is obvious that she should take responsibility in regards to the health of all the people in the Duchy itself.”
“Raven, I’m completely healthy now.”
‘How in the hell are you healthy’, was the question that got stuck in his throat, which Raven had barely managed to swallow.
“Honestly, you can change the blanket to only one layer now. It’s not even winter yet and I don’t really need this much warmth.”
Her room was this warm even in the middle of summer. It was in the name of protecting her body from the cold, nevertheless the room showed no signs of changes at all even after she had gotten much better.
At least, she had managed to get permission to open up the window recently.
He eventually succeeded to choose one out of all his worries that were scattering inside his head.
“It’s still not enough.”
Somehow, he seemingly needed to provide her with more medicines. Molitia gave a deep sigh towards his stubbornness, which appeared unwilling to yield.
“Let me take a walk then, at least. It’s quite stuffy in the room.”
“I’ll come with you.”
It was obvious that she would be carried around as they walked through the garden from those words of his. Molitia actually wanted to walk around on her own two feet, she didn’t wish to go sightseeing within his snug embrace.
