I Became The Childhood Friend of the Obsessive Second Male Lead - Chapter 296
“… If Noel had at least some of Darrell’s calm personality, none of this would have happened.”
“Oh my, I didn’t know the princess would have such a misunderstanding.”
He crossed his arms for a moment. With a face that looked like he had something to think about for a while.
Darrell Mayer was very good at being objective.
If he had the same mindset as Noel and came across this situation…
He must be making a cold-hearted, crazy judgment.
There is nothing he fears more than not getting what he truly desires. So Darrell found Noel infinitely cute when he was just having a hard time with this.
“Anyway, I guess you couldn’t afford to ask Noel such a question calmly.”
“Um, I don’t know, why?”
With Darrell’s playful reply, Rieta slightly twisted her face.
And that was one of the faces that Darrell found cute.
“Come here, my dear younger sister.”
As Rieta asked back in surprise, he didn’t bother to explain their relationship in other words.
There is no need to explain the obvious things one by one.
“We, well, it really is.”
Rieta, who understood his intentions, nodded her head and awkwardly moved in front of him.
As if trying to hold back her laughter, her lips kept twitching.
He set aside the glass of milk that Rieta was holding, and gave her a warm hug.
Soon, Rieta also came leaning on him, giving her full weight. Has her complicated mind become a little more comfortable?
‘I hope so….’
Darel thought so and patted Rieta’s back.
In fact, until now, he had refrained from treating Rieta like a sister in this way if possible.
Because she is the heir of a country.
But when he thought that this child was going away, he couldn’t stop thinking about it.
“… thank you. Darrell.”
“Um, even though I didn’t tell you the right answer?”
“That’s true, but still…”
Rieta answered by lifting her head slightly from his arms.
“You called me your younger sister.”
“I should be grateful to the princess for allowing me to use that title.”
Rieta shook her head. For some reason, it became like rubbing her cheek against his arms.
“Even if we don’t have that title between us, after all, Darrell would have been my brother and I would have been your younger sister.”
“Um, is that so?”
He asked with a pleasant smile.
“All the memories that were built up between us point to that relationship. Actions don’t lie.”
“I was relieved that the princess knew a good answer.”
What answer was he talking about?
Rieta asked again, but he only smiled mischievously this time.
“I’m sorry, but there are some things in this world that you have to realize for yourself.”
He tidied up Rieta’s messy hair.
“And my job is to present something that Princess cannot understand on your own.”
The answer to his story came from the window.
“Oh, Lord Darrell, isn’t that my job?”
When Rieta turned around in surprise, BB was sitting precariously in the open window.
“It’s an honor to see you again. Princess.”
“What about the bird?”
Hearing Rieta’s sudden question, BBdidn’t panic and grinned.
“Eh… Did the bird come before me? But I can’t even gather the health of a bird that flew freely into the sky.”
“I’m sorry, because I think BB would know something. There’s nothing you can’t do. And above all, you’re kind enough to give it fruit separately.”
BB strode towards Rieta as she said that.
“Don’t worry. There’s no reason the bird that the princess is worried about isn’t healthy.”
Rieta whispered thank you to him in a small voice.
“Then can I have a cookie too? In fact, I’ve been starving all day.”
True to that, a loud growl could be heard from his stomach.
Rieta offered to have a meal brought, but BB shook his head.
“That’s okay. When it enters the stomach, everything is the same.”
She hoped he was eating well.
Rieta was a bit concerned about BB’s health.
“Above all, now is not the time to worry about me. The fact that the dark-hearted Lord Darrell called me here at this time is proof of that. Right?”
Darrell held out his hand and pointed at Rieta when he asked that.
He meant to stop talking about anything else and go report to Rieta.
‘The reason Darrell came to my room wasn’t just because of what happened with Noel.’
It seemed that he was going to let her meet BB and be by her side in the meantime.
“What else is going on in Liz?”
“First of all, to tell you about the main situation, they ran out of money.”
That’s not an update.
BB explained again, feeling her disappointed reaction.
“No, I mean, really really ran out. It’s gone all the way from the floor to the basement.”
“Yes, it’s disastrous. It can’t be helped. There are many beauties in Liz.”
Rieta buried her face in her hands for a moment.
