Chapter 8 – Part 1
Six years ago, Amelia visited her fiancé’s estate in the north for a vacation. It was the same sun, but strangely, the northern sunlight stung less, and the wind was also cool.
“Wow, it’s really cool here.”
“Right? You won’t be able to experience this coolness in such a small place like yours.”
Amelia was speechless for a moment. Of course, she understood what Elliot just said, but sometimes, she still got hurt by words like these.
“Have a good rest here this summer. Julius is also staying.”
“If it’s Julius, then Sir Reinkel?”
“Yes, he said he’ll be here with his brother.”
“Really? How old is that child?”
“Thirteen? I’m not sure. It’s the first time I’ve met him. Apparently, he said he wants to go around the world.”
“It’s a really great aspiration.”
Amelia sincerely thought so. And she also felt that it’s good to see Sir Reinkel again.
In addition, curiosity sparked about the younger brother of Sir Reinkel, as Sir Reinkel was the empire’s number one bachelor.
“Come on. I’ll show you around the castle.”
Elliot grabbed her arm and dragged her before Amelia could even follow. She sighed inwardly and let herself be led away by Elliot.
“Long time no see, Miss Laszlo.”
“It’s been a while, Sir Reinkel.”
Amelia looked at Reinkel’s face. He still had good features, and he had a figure that made many women’s hearts flutter. Of course, Amelia was also thrilled to see Reinkel.
Even so, she blamed herself. It’s not that she didn’t like him and it’s not that she did anything wrong, but she thought that it was rude to think of someone from the opposite sex other than her fiancé being handsome.
“The child next to you…”
“Oh, he’s my younger brother.”
The way he said ‘younger brother’ was a bit awkward, but no one noticed it—they were all curious about who the younger brother of the imperial knight Reinkel was, and focused their attention on him. With black hair, the boy’s head was bowed down. There were a few freckles on his face.
“Hello, Young Sir Reinkel.”
When he didn’t answer, Amelia was left puzzled.
On the other hand, Carlos found his position awkward.
He couldn’t hold his head up high. He was disrespected and neglected by his parents, as if he was not part of the imperial family. He had to go back and forth almost as if he had been kicked out.
Fortunately, Sir Reinkel wasn’t a bad person, so he traveled to places of the other nobles with him as he tried to cheer up Carlos. But it just hurt even more to go to so many places.
His older brother, Claude, was also a handsome man, but Reinkel was also a handsome enough man. Seeing the passive attitude of the ‘younger brother’ Carlos, people immediately expressed their disappointment in him. It will be no different here. Carlos was pessimistic.
“You’re more shy than I thought?”
Carlos was startled and almost fell backwards. Because a woman’s face suddenly appeared in front of him. Raising his head with an astonished face, the woman looked at him as she leaned towards him, a smile on her lips.
Reinkel called as if to give caution.
“Sorry. I thought your brother was nervous, so I tried to comfort him.”
Her tone was lighthearted. Carlos looked closely at the absurd person’s face.
“Now you can lift your head and look at me. Nice to meet you, Young Sir Reinkel. I am Amelia Laszlo. You can call me Sister Amelia.”
Although his life was short, he had never seen such a person before. Trying to make eye contact with her, as avoiding her gaze would make him look like a coward, he spoke.
“Nice… Nice to meet you, Miss Laszlo.”
“Yes, nice to meet you.”
Her smile became brighter. Her soft brown hair, round, reddish cheeks, and pale sky blue eyes were mesmerizing. She held out her hand and Carlos hesitated, but he eventually reached out and took her hand. As soon as he felt the soft touch of her hand, his hand trembled. Then, he realized that she smelled good. Carlos’s face began to turn red.
Amelia. Carlos repeated the name as it rolled over the tip of his tongue.
Amelia’s fiancé said he was very busy, and Reinkel was the same. When the two who were close friends went out, only Amelia and Carlos remained in the castle. At that time, Amelia came up to Carlos without hesitation.
Carlos was very surprised by the visit and even asked himself if she was plotting something. Because there was always a ‘purpose’ when it came to giving and receiving favor from people in the Imperial Palace. But what will happen when a betrothed woman approaches the prince whose face has been hidden?
“You remind me of my younger brother.”
And how shocked he was to hear from Sir Reinkel that Amelia’s younger brother was a six-year-old child. To Amelia, he looked like a child. Carlos liked the kindness she gave him, but he wasn’t happy with this.
Amelia was cheerful and bright, and she had a knack for making people feel comfortable. Carlos was nervous in front of her, but before he knew it, he was able to reveal himself and be honest in front of her. Next to Amelia, he learned what he liked and didn’t like. And that he wasn’t the worst person.
Amelia was a good person. When she treated him in this way, he felt at ease. It was the first time he received such selfless favor. So while it was strange, he wanted it more. Meeting her was a joy and a light for Carlos.
“Elliot keeps telling me to lose weight.”
“Really? Mister Butler is also very strict. I think it would be okay for Amelia to eat more.”
“Really? Oh my God, Carl, thank you for already saying something to please a woman.”
Amelia laughed. Carlos also looked at her and smiled. But Carlos was inwardly perplexed. He was speaking the truth, not just ‘to please a woman’, but is she saying that it is a word that pleases her? In his view, Amelia had no flaws. What’s wrong with her being plump?
Elliott Butler was a greedy man. If he had a woman like Amelia as his wife, he should be content with her. Why must he interfere with her appearance? He cursed Elliot Butler in his mind.
Her fiancé, Elliott, wasn’t the kind of person Carlos would like. Elliot was moderately good to him like an older brother, but as he was a cowardly boy from the start, and he didn’t resemble Carlos’ older brother at all.
In the end, he didn’t let Carlos join in on what the older boys did. Perhaps Elliott doesn’t want to take care of the child. Of course, he didn’t hate it because he could be with Amelia, so he dismissed Reinkel who was concerned about him, but he hated Elliot so much anyway.
He hated Elliott for talking to Amelia for granted, and he did not want Elliott to take her by the wrist and lead her without consideration. He hated that her eyes seemed to be clouded subtly each time.
Even so, she was quite fond of her fiancé who she said was kind and gentle. In fact, she said that Elliot wasn’t bad looking, and she said that when they walked together, people would say they were a good match.
Why? Carlos didn’t like it. And it gradually became a cause of his depression.
One day, he was led out of the castle by Amelia’s hand. At first, Reinkel’s strictly urged not to go outside the castle, and he stopped her from going out alone, but Amelia didn’t seem to care. Rather, she gave an excuse that it would be dangerous to go out alone, so she eventually took Carlos out as well.
The summer sun was slightly stinging, and white clouds were floating in the pure blue sky. Amelia led his hand to a wide meadow.
“How is it? Do you feel good here?”
Amelia looked back at him and she smiled. At that moment, Carlos watched the scene without saying a word. As always, a smiling face, two pretty red cheeks, and eyes that resemble the clarity of the summer sky.
She smiled in the meadow, where there was nothing that bothered her eyes.
In an instant, Carlos’s heart sank. It was because he had unwittingly thought of something he should not have thought of.
“I brought you here because you seem downcast these days, Carl.”
He always thought Amelia was beautiful. Amelia, as he thought, was a very good person.
But it didn’t stop there. He realized that Amelia was a woman in his eyes. Amelia was in his heart.
He wished that she was his. He wished she would be with him. He was so eagerly waiting for it.
“I don’t know what’s making you depressed, but can you tell me what I can do to help you?”
Carlos looked at Amelia, feeling frustrated. Amelia was smiling softly, as always.
Amelia could not solve his troubles.
