The Young Lady Tames the Main Leads - Chapter 140
It seemed that the thing she was going to give was the thing in her fist right now.
Eventually, Alice opened her fist and revealed the hidden gift.
“Wow! What’s this?”
It was a cute squirrel-shaped cloth doll about the size of two fingers.
“It’s a doll keychain that you can attach to your bag. When I went to the market yesterday, I bought it because it was sold with the headband.”
I could only see the headband, but it seems that the doll was also sold too.
Anyway, that wasn’t the point.
The doll keychain is really small and lovely looking.
The big cheeks seemed to have an acorn inside.
“It’s really cute. Just like Alice.”
I muttered involuntarily.
“What? Not at all. Rather, it is…”
But Alice vehemently denied my words, trailing the end of her words.
The more you talk, the more curious I become.
When I gave her a look of, ‘Why are you doing this?’ Alice answered with a whimper.
“Um… Actually, I bought this because the first time I saw it, I thought it looked a lot like Lady Emir.”
“Yes. Miss Emir. Look everyone. Don’t they look alike?”
Alice showed the doll to the other children and asked for their opinion.
‘…I don’t know. Why is it that mom and dad, nanny, and even Alice look at me like a squirrel? That’s what it meant right?’
In the short period of time, I wondered what the hell I really looked like, that everyone was saying that.
“Oh, it looks alike.”
“I think I look alike. It’s like Emir’s plump cheeks.”
“The round eyes are alike.”
…is everyone making fun of me?
Just then, a person knocked on my door.
She was a maid in charge of chores.
“What’s going on?”
“I have a letter addressed to your name.”
I received a letter? I haven’t even made my debutante yet.
With that in mind, I received the letter, but when I saw the design of Grand Duchy Bedmond engraved on the front of the envelope, I immediately noticed it.
‘I think it’s his brother’s birthday party that Cedric talked about last time.’
I smiled and tried to put the letter down on the table.
But at that moment, Cedric, who was looking at me from the side, asked a sharp question.
“That is a letter from my brother, right?”
No, I didn’t say anything, how did he know right away? Apparently, Cedric had developed a sense of hunch or intuition.
“No… that’s right.”
I was going to lie a little, but Cedric was already looking at me that he was 100% sure, so I confessed the truth.
Then Cedric sighed and held out his hand.
“Give me the letter. Let’s burn it in the fireplace.”
“It’s summer, so there will be no firewood, let alone a stove.”
“Then let’s tear it up and put it in the flower bed as manure.”
It seems like he doesn’t want me attending his family’s birthday party.
Maybe it’s because I was someone else.
Well, birthdays are usually best spent with family.
“All right. Here it is.”
So, Cedric’s birthday, which will be next year, is also to be spent intimately with the three brothers.
I have to pretend I have nothing to attend.
I don’t know what he thought of, but Cedric was smiling contentedly.
“… it’s not coming.”
As if Cervan was waiting for someone, he glanced out the window over and over again.
But no matter how hard he looked out the window, there was no guest carriage coming through the front door.
“Hey, Second Brother. Is there anyone you were waiting for?”
And Cedric, who was leisurely passing by, asked a question.
Cervan answered, still looking out the window.
“The friend you brought back then. Lady Emir Saeron.”
“Well? Emir is my friend. What is Second Brother’s business?”
Knowing everything, Cedric deliberately used a grumbling tone.
However, Cervan, who had not yet noticed that it was something Cedric had been working on, answered with a worried voice.
“You know, it’s First Brother’s birthday party today. I invited your friend here.”
“Aha, if that’s the case… Emir probably won’t come.”
“What? Cedric, how do you know that? I sent her an invitation?”
Cervan turned around and responded with a voice that was dumbfounded.
Then Cedric answered with a sly smile.
“Because I told her not to come.”
“What? Are you kidding me? Why did you tell her not to come? Obviously, Lady Saeron promised to visit on my birthday and First Brother’s birthday last time! Why would you say something like that?”
“It is what I wanted. Because she’s my friend.”
Cervan, got hot-blooded in response to the brazen Cedric’s answer and shouted.
“She’s my little brother’s friend.”
“To Brother, she was ‘my little brother’s friend’, to me ‘a friend’. So, it was only natural that Emir followed my advice, who she was closer to.”
“You’re kidding, did you threaten her not to come?”
It was a question that was very close to the truth, but Cedric answered very brazenly.
“How is that possible? Oh, rather than that, there are carts loaded with party decorations coming in. Why don’t you get ready for First Brother’s birthday party? Come on, let’s go, Second brother.”
Saying that, Cedric pushed Cervan’s back to the other side.
