History at the Library - Chapter 16
Vivian covered her mouth elatedly, but it was too late.
“W, who are you?”
I’ve been caught…….
As Vivian despaired, her gaze overlapped with the blonde lady.
The woman stopped in the middle of gathering her clothes and turned towards the direction of the sound as she trembled. It was natural for her to be incredibly flustered by the fact that there was someone else here other than herself. Since she was half-undressed, it would be odder if she wasn’t embarrassed.
“T… that I…….”
It was the first time Vivian looked straight at her face. Vivian tried to explain, but she became speechless and stared blankly at the lady. The lady, who held both the Emperor and Duke on either side of her, was immensely beautiful.
Though it was a bit messy, her hair was blonde and came down to her waist. Those green eyes shone so brightly that it appeared artificial and were filled to the brim with tears. Underneath the corners of her eyes lifted upwards coyly, her red cheeks oddly stimulated sadism.
She looked like an innocent white swan and a sensual femme fatale at the same time. The kind of face one would want to tease till it became a mess.
At the moment, Vivian understood. It was a beauty that made a woman like herself watch speechlessly, but for men, the urges must have been stronger. The words of an unsurpassable beauty that causes the rise and fall of nations refer to people like her.
There was no doubt that this lady was the very one who had embraced both the Emperor and the Duke, but……. what Vivian was astonished by was not only the lady’s beauty.
Carden. The lady from the Household of Viscount Fromandi.
Vivian knew this face. Before the Household had become bankrupt, she was a childhood friend she’d seen often. The last time she’d seen Carden was when she was a young girl, but her face was the exact same as back then, so she was able to identify her with one glance.
Carden blinked her wide, tearful eyes and asked. Her weak voice sounded as if it would fade away at any moment.
“Vivian? Is it really you, Vivian?”
“And you, Carden, are you really Carden?”
“How come, in this place…….?”
“That’s what I should ask!”
Oh my. She wasn’t sure how many years it had been. Since the last time they’d seen was when she was ten years, so was it the first time in 14 years?
Vivian quickly finished the calculation in her head. And a moment later, she realized this wasn’t the time to loiter. She quickly gathered Carden’s clothes around her and helped her up.
“I, I’ll stand up. ……Ah!”
Carden flapped about as if she was embarrassed and pushed away Vivian and nearly tripped on her feet. It was all because she couldn’t feel her legs. Vivian hurriedly gathered the falling girl into her arms.
Vivian pretended to not see the love juice mixed with semen that rode down her legs. And after air was filled silence for a while, with a ‘Hm…’, she asked carefully.
“Are you okay with staying here for a while? As you can tell, the Royal Library is open at night as well.”
In other words, people could come at any moment. At that, Carden, whose face had grown red and looked as if it would erupt at any moment, stopped her rebellious flailing. She appeared to have accepted Vivian’s goodwill.
Rather than meeting the morning in the library dressed in ripped clothes, it was better to obediently follow the instructions of her childhood friend.
Carden, who had been silent, opened her mouth and asked awkwardly with a timid voice.
“So…… You saw everything?”
“Yup. Without intending to. In truth, I’ve been working here as the night librarian ever since that day.”
“I… I see.”
It wasn’t just to see for the sake of it. She had been excited at the thought of new material that she had written it down in her notebook to the very detail.
Before I found out it was her, I thought it was just some lustful pervert. What happened in 14 years for such a naive and pure lady to…….
