Is the highlight of the banquet on the last day? (24) – unedited
The third day of the banquet was hosted by Count Abitz.
“Can I kiss you?”
“How many times do you want to get hit?”
Perhaps it was the last day, and the large central hall of County Abitz was packed with people. I couldn’t see the saint or the emperor I saw on the first day, but all the nobles seemed to show their faces. I could roughly predict it because I listened intently to the other employees’ conversations who said, “Hey! They’re here too?!” .
After finishing the onion work to some extent, I began to search for Chenin and Evan in earnest. I see Guernia’s figure, but not Evan’s figure. Merson followed me around and was not finding Chenin and Evan, he was just squeaking nonsense from before.
“You didn’t kiss me today.”
“Not for another week.”
“What?! Erina, aren’t you too cruel?!”
Uwaah—why are you screaming like this?! I reached out to cover Merson’s mouth in surprise, but he swished and grabbed my shoulder.
“Are you trying to kill me?”
“Shh-who told you to put a hand on my shoulder? Let go of it now. And now, everyone’s attention is focused on you!”
I walked past him and ran out of the hall at a quick pace. When I heard Merson’s footsteps behind me, I purposely stopped walking and stomped on his foot.
“Merson. You’re not listening to me, are you?”
“I will listen. So kiss…….”
“Don’t even dream until you find Chenin.”
Dark clouds formed on his face as I spoke firmly. At the same time, his enthusiasm rises. Hey, aren’t you too simple?
“Merson, today is the last day. Let’s quickly find Chenin and send her to Sezaine.”
“Send her? Aren’t we going together?”
Damn, what did I just say?
It was something I had been constantly thinking about. Just going back to my original world.
Therefore, when Sezaine regained the stability of the past, I wanted to ask the saint to help me. Also, to protect the empty spot next to Merson after I left.
But these were the plans only I had been thinking of, so it was obvious that Merson questioned my words.
“Oh, of course we’ll go.”
I don’t know. Let’s just go over it. One of Merson’s eyebrows twitched, but I tried to pretend I didn’t see it.
“Hey, two employees there! Can’t you see we’re busy right now?! Where’s the time to play?!”
Good, unknown uncle! I needed to change the topic, so I quickly ran to the uncle.
“Anything you want me to do?”
“The guest registration seems to have run out of pen and paper right now, so please refill them.”
Fortunately, it wasn’t difficult. It’s not difficult, and I’m too lazy to take Merson with me, so I decided to go alone. As expected, Merson was clinging to me.
“If both of us go, there will be a lot of suspicious eyes looking at us because we’ll be fooling around.”
“Let’s bring a lot of paper, then.”
“Are you going to be monitored for not working?”
“… I want to be with Erina.”
Uuhh, here we go again. Those pathetic eyes that melt my heart! Even if I stare at it for a little bit, my heart will soon soften and I will be able to say whatever Merson wants. Oh, it’s dangerous.
I escaped Merson’s eyes by pushing his cheeks away.
“I’ll be right back, stay in the hall. All I need to do is bring paper and pen.”
“Can you wait?”
I grabbed Merson’s collar and pulled him to kiss his cheek. With his back bent, he looked into my eyes. As soon as he felt better, the corners of his lips rose.
“Hurry up and come back.”
It’s not a long way to go, but in a way, he’s really overprotective. I grinned and hurriedly ran to the paper and pen warehouse.
Ironically, I thought of a Monami ballpoint pen, but there were a lot of luxurious pen nibs, ink, and papers with brilliant sentences embedded in gold leaf. Wow, they’re not even taking care of these things and just put them in there? What a wealthy family, right?
I took it full in my arms and returned alone. But I couldn’t put these papers and pens at the entrance. I was so surprised that I almost dropped them, barely holding them with my arms.
Guernia was leading Merson out of the hall. The word cannibal – cannibal – cannibal – were circling in my head.
“Oh dear Lord.”
I can’t miss this! I hid myself and started following Merson and Guernia.
“What are they whispering about?”
It’s not a pretty picture to cling to Merson like a lover and put her arms around him.
I wasn’t close enough to hear their talk, so I was only hearing the sound but not being able to figure it out, and it was difficult to infer it from the shape of his mouth. Merson didn’t say a word in return and was just walking as Guernia led.
“Just put your hand on Merson. I’m going to give you a lot of trouble.”
The place Guernia arrived was the most cornered room even on the top floor. When I came up here, I couldn’t see a single shadow of those many people. To hide a tree, hide it in the forest, and it became more difficult to hide.
Guernia stood in front of the door and muttered something. She can grab the doorknob and turn it without a struggle.
The longer I stood at the door, the more daring I acted. Very little. From only hiding at the end of the hallway with only my head sticking out, my body is now completely exposed.
Then I heard a pretty loud ‘click’. Oh God! Surprised, I tried to hide again, but then Merson turned his head to me. Very casually, as if he knew.
Then he smiles so that Guernia cannot see, and then gestures his chin towards the door.
“You want me to come in?”
I spoke with my mouth wide, but Merson couldn’t answer my question. Because Guernia grabbed his wrist and pulled him into the room.
The door closed again with a ‘thud-‘ sound. When the two of them disappeared, I quickly ran to the door.
