History at the Library - Chapter 145
Mysterious Love. Mysterious Person (2)
Aiden smirked and mixed Mist flowers with the meaning of ‘success of love’. Gentleman watched his behaviour with an undesirable eye. His heart was twisted and turned when he saw the owner who looked really happy in front of a poor person who didn’t even have time to date.
Maybe that’s why. Kilix broke up and said something that was obvious to offend him.
“This is an extension of the question I asked earlier, but was there any reason to hide the identity from the lady?”
“You’re a couple, aren’t you?”
“Not yet a lover.”
At the moment, his eyes, which had been languidly loosened by happiness, began to freeze. However, even though he was strangling himself, he just snorted. These days, Master has become soft and has been so into a woman that he can’t even get blood on his hands.
“You were dumped because you can’t trust them.”
“I’ve never been dumped.”
“Is that the look of a man who never got dumped? Your eyes look like a puppy that needs to be pooped.”
“Sometimes I think you have nine lives.”
“I was actually a cat in my previous life.”
He exchanged useless jokes and retorted.
“Do you know how merciless a man is to an unlikable man? At least, in my view, the lady has some regard for you. I’m putting my neck on the line.”
“I know that. But…”
“The lady keeps pushing you away because you don’t trust her. Your Highness knows that it’s all a matter of truth when you face it.”
Even if he knew it, he was just afraid and pushed it back to the end. Not a child, Kilix shook his head, swallowing his words back.
If he had found out that Aiden had hidden the key to the basement in a fairy tale book to open up to Vivian, he would have looked at the current him with a pathetic look.
“I know who I am and I’m not sure she’ll like me.”
No, rather… Aiden sighed, showing a rare weakness.
“I’m sure she’ll avoid me. I don’t know what I would dare do to her then.”
“So, are you going to hide it until the very end and buy a gift and give it away so that she can completely fall in love with Your Highness?”
“I’m sure she’ll be more betrayed and you’ll be kicked miserably.”
It was a very sharp dig at the heart that even he could not grasp.
He was going to make her like himself at least more than she does now, and then let go of all the boundaries and reveal her identity when she couldn’t escape. Slowly, little by little, so that she can get used to it.
But after thinking that far, Aiden realized that wasn’t even his true intention.
If he was hiding the truth from Vivian for the reasons above, he didn’t have to hide any of the basement keys in the book. Putting a precious key in a place where she can find it at any time means he wants her to find it someday.
He was afraid to say it in person, and he was afraid that Vivian, who would later find out the truth and would leave in disappointment. So he hid the key. This was a very cowardly act, unlike himself.
“I guess I was going to leave it all to her in the end. There’s more to apologize for.”
He did something stupid.
Aiden rubbed his eyes tiredly, feeling that his excited feelings had subsided in an instant.
When he got back to the mansion, he thought he’d have to retrieve the key first and hide it in an invisible place. It was fortunate that Vivian didn’t find the key yet. At least he had a chance to make excuses.
“It would be better to reveal your identity as soon as possible, not to offer these gifts. She’s the one who came knowing you were the Grand Duke of Black, right? It’s better to be beaten a day earlier. There’s a reason why there’s a saying. Just get it done quickly.”
“That’s so easy to say.”
“It’s none of my business.”
Aiden, who couldn’t stand it, ended up slapping the back of Kilix’s head. Slapping his head was a kind of warning that there was a degree.
He thought it was a playful, light touch, but for a moment the doctor thought his head was going to explode. It was such a terrible pain that he had to scream and roll around the floor right away. He gripped his head and swallowed a groan.
Aiden looked down at such a doctor and scoffed.
“Someday I will, but at least not today. She’ll be ill for a long time and then wake up and go crazy.”
It was then. Suddenly, the communicator, who had put it in his arms in a timely manner, cried loudly.
He handed the bouquet over to Kilix, then rummaged through his arms and pulled out a tiny crystal ball the size of a palm of his hand. And when he held it in both hands and lifted it up, the butler’s face rose over the beads.
Your Grace, we’re in trouble! Miss… Oh, miss!
The communication from the butler suddenly stopped there. There was no time to react. It happened so quickly that the doctor, who had been rubbing the back of his head, also made a dumb sound.
However, Aiden quickly realized that he was in a hurry and hardened his face.
What about her? What’s happening? Don’t say something went wrong.
