I Became The Childhood Friend of the Obsessive Second Male Lead - Chapter 222
It was Everett who turned his head first.
“I understand that it’s hard to admit because of your personality.”
“Don’t hurt yourself too hard. When vague thoughts turn clear, the first person you’ll deceive is yourself.”
Everett said, “Let’s go back now” and asked for a carriage.
“Then I’ll go say goodbye to the captain. You?”
Noel thought about whether or not he should say goodbye to Rieta before he left.
It was true that he was reluctant, perhaps because he had had a strange conversation with Everett a while ago.
But if he disappeared without a word, Rieta would definitely nag him later.
Why could she do that?
He grunted as if unwilling to answer.
“I too . . . have someone to say goodbye to.”
“Ah, like family, right?”
Everett dared to mimic his words and answered back.
He was just getting back what Noel had said, but at that moment, Noel was not in a good mood for some reason.
“Think however you like. Anyway, see you later.”
Noel hurriedly turned around, putting his hand in his pocket.
Noel just mumbled something like that.
Apparently, Everett had fallen into the world of love, and it must have been that everyone else’s hearts seemed that way too.
Well, of course . . .
For Noel, there were times when Rieta seemed special.
He never really thought about it. But that’s because Rieta Liz is actually gifted with special looks.
It wasn’t that he fell in love in a leisurely way.
It was a very natural phenomenon to see a pretty person and think that they were pretty, and if one started attaching the word ‘like’ to someone based on that alone . . .
“Everyone in this world will like you.”
So, he only slightly liked Rieta, but could not conclude that he had given his heart to her.
Above all, who was Rieta Liz?
Since she was a child, they had seen everything, his so-called childhood friend.
On the day Rieta coughed loudly, her face was even smeared with saliva, which came out of her little mouth.
He had no reason to like a partner who had gone through such a filthy thing.
Because the ideal relationship he knew should be full of beautiful and elegant things.
. . . And I hate Elisha Maureen, clinging to her.
It was never like jealousy.
Because that stupid Elisha didn’t want to see Rieta’s real face.
He would still think that the air that Rieta breathed smelled like flowers.
If he didn’t do enough to cover up his delusions, even the people watching would be annoyed.
Noel looked around, looking for Rieta.
But she was nowhere to be seen, only Elisha was standing alone at the entrance.
“Where is Princess Rieta?”
“She is meeting Princess Gabriella.”
“Yes, she said there was something to talk about. Very important.”
Hearing the word, Noel had an uneasy thought.
He wondered if she was going to talk about the Kingdom of Liz.
Because that would be the only thing important to Rieta.
Noel shook his head.
No matter how friendly Sister treats me, in the end, she’s the Empire’s Princess.
There was no way Rieta could consult her openly about what happened at the academy.
But it seems like Sister really cares about her.
Gabriella even looked at Rieta as her ideal type and declared it?
Because she had a blind spot for Rieta, she really may have pushed through it.
Noel wandered anxiously on the other side of the hall until he arrived near the parlor Gabriella used to rest at the banquet.
In front of him, Noel’s anxiety deppened.
It was because the knights who were supposed to stand right in front of the door were guarding from fifteen steps away.
It must have been that the princess had taken measures to prevent the story from flowing outside by any chance.
Was Rieta really going to talk about that day?
Noel stood in front of the door in anxiety.
He wanted to put his ear to the door and listen to what the two were talking about, but he couldn’t do that because the knights were staring at him.
What to do?
While thinking about it, he opened the door to the next room that just caught his eye.
It was an ordinary living room.
Perhaps someone had used it a while ago, a few servants were cleaning up the glasses.
They recognized Noel and immediately bowed.
“Don’t mind me. I’m just taking a break.”
Noel passed them quickly and went straight to the terrace.
At the same time, the room next door, with Gabriella, had a terrace like this too.
If they had the door open and they were talking, maybe he could hear it all the way to where Noel was.
Of course, it would only happen if Noel was lucky.
“I dismissed all the knights. Princess Rieta.”
“It isn’t a big enough story to affect Princess Gabriela’s escorts.”
Apparently, Noel’s luck was too good.
The two of them came out on the terrace to have a conversation.
Whispering, so as to keep a secret.
Noel leaned against the corner of the terrace.
