His Highness' Secret Accountant - Chapter 13
Ayla, who was cleaning the room, looked towards the sound as if she felt a presence.
“Was the bath alright?”
Looking at Ayla, who was talking and smiling as if nothing had happened, Owen felt a mysterious desire to win.
“Miss Ayla looks fine?”
Owen sarcastically said to Ayla.
“What? I… Did something happen?”
“Ohoh. Will you pretend you don’t know?”
If she showed embarrassment right now, she would certainly be teased by this childish Grand Duke for the rest of her life.
Do not get caught up in Owen’s tricks. No matter what.
“I don’t know what you are talking about. I did not see anything. Grand Duke.”
Ayla replied, with an effort to keep smiling.
“Pfft, I clearly saw your eyes looking at this perfect body, so are you going to pretend like this? Once you look, you will never forget…”
“W-when did I!!! No, who told you to be so naked?!”
‘What am I saying right now.’
With sincerity coming out without her being aware of it, Ayla quickly closed her mouth.
Owen giggled, as if her appearance were amusing.
“Anyway, I’m going to pretend I didn’t see it, just so you know!”
When she had finished speaking, Ayla shut her lips and shook the innocent duster.
Ayla’s reaction seemed to be very amusing, so Owen continued.
“Ah, is that so? This body is so perfect that I’m afraid you can’t do that.”
“It wasn’t that good. What…”
Ayla mumbled in a voice that could barely be heard, pouting.
“You said you hadn’t seen it a while ago… This sounds different? Don’t you think? Miss Ayla.”
Ayla stared silently at Owen for his continuous, mischievous pranks.
With a bright red face, which was getting hotter.
After finishing their morning routine, Lily and Ayla’s expressions were distinctly different.
Unlike Lily, who was excited to see food, Ayla’s face was full of worries.
“I was scolded because I was hungry, but it looks really good!”
“I know, right. Ah… Looks delicious.”
The hot mushroom soup and well-grilled bacon smelled delicious, but Ayla could not concentrate on the meal at all.
“Ayla… Did something happen with Grand Duke Arrot, maybe? Since earlier, your face has continued to be red… It’s really weird. Are you sick? Do you have a fever?”
Lily spoke in a worried voice to Ayla, who was just swinging her fork without eating.
“It is nothing like that. Nothing happened… Haha.”
“I don’t think so. Something is definitely wrong…”
Lily looked at Ayla, who was smiling awkwardly, wondering.
Soon, Lily shrugged and concentrated on her meal again.
She didn’t want to admit it, but Owen was completely right.
Owen’s naked torso kept hovering in her mind.
Thanks to that, her burning face showed little signs of subsiding.
‘I was the one who lit up like this.’
At the thought suddenly passing through her mind, Ayla’s face heated up as if it were going to explode at once.
In her 20 years, she had never seen a man’s naked body.
Seeing the body of a strange man, and a young man on top of that, for the first time is a culture shock.
“Why on earth are you like that!”
“Sorry? What? Did I… Do something wrong?”
Lily asked at Ayla’s sudden outcry, with her spoon stopped.
At the same time, Ayla shook her head and smiled awkwardly.
“The Head Maid told us to meet her in the lobby after eating. Let us go quickly. We’re going to be late.”
At Lily’s urgent voice, Ayla nodded and stepped forward.
In the lobby in front of the canteen, the maids who had finished eating gathered in groups.
As they got closer to the crowd, the maids that were gathered began to whisper while looking at them.
“Is it her? The fallen noble?”
“Since she’s from noble birth, her face looks good.”
“I heard she’s here to serve Grand Duke Arrot. Tsk.”
“Maybe she offered her body to him. How can you say no to that.”
“She’s really low level.”
“Speak quietly. She will hear us!”
‘I heard everything. You guys.’
She wanted to ask what they knew to bad-mouth her, but she tried hard to ignore them.
Unlike Ayla, Lily seemed very angry at this situation.
Lily, who had been watching the situation, snorted.
