I Became the Younger Sister of a Regretful Obsessive Male Lead - Chapter 15

Lucian caressed the top of my head, petting it with one hand, and then ran his hand down.
He spread his fingers and felt the texture of my hair, which felt as if he thought it was luxurious silk, and swept it off my shoulders and slowly brushed through my hair.
This is really common for us now, but my heart was moved because I felt like affection was buried in his touch.
He wrapped his other hand around my body and patted me on the back at regular and comforting intervals.
When I first looked at him, I couldn’t help but be filled with a lot of compliments.
I can’t believe he is so beautiful like a doll. So beautiful that he could comfort others without trying.
His face was buried in his shoulders with emotion evident in his posture.
Yeah, just like this.
He just needs to live like a human being.
I was wondering what kind of expression he had on his face, so I forgot that I was scared.
I wanted to enjoy this atmosphere.
My favorite. Your sister is so happy.
I put my face on his shoulder and waited until the thunder stopped, and in the end, I fell asleep without realizing it.
Lucian held his sleeping sister tightly in his arms.
The child’s body is warmer than he would have thought. Being so close together, he had the illusion that the warmth she was emitting was seeping into him.
Without saying anything all this time, he slowly uttered something only after Rachel had fallen asleep.
“I’d like to include you in my schedule…”
He really wanted to listen to what his sister had asked of him before, but it didn’t go as he had wanted.
He first noticed that his father’s gaze at him had changed. In the past, if it was mere contempt, he would automatically stare at him with wary eyes.
Still, Lucian asked for it.
He wanted to include Rachel in his schedule so that he could meet her freely.
[Absolutely not. That child is too good for you]
It was the duke’s reply when he refused his request.
Originally, he would have accepted the Duke’s refusal without questioning him.
However, he wanted to keep his promise with his younger sister.
So he asked his father every day, but the answer that came back was the same every time and the number of hits he received increased more than usual.
“I wish I could be with you all day…”
At first, I wondered what she meant. That she wanted to be included in his schedule.
However, from the moment Rachel became absorbed in her daily life, he realized that he wanted to be with his younger sister.
He missed Rachel who kept following him.
He really didn’t know that the desire for something could make him feel so desperate that he could hardly bear it, even before when he was all alone.
Despite the thunder being weaker than before, Rachel flinched and frowned.
Lucian covered the child’s ears with his big hands.
He came to his sister’s room to ask her not to be close to Noah, and he thought he did a good job.
He held his sister in his arms and just sat still until the thunder had completely stopped.
While feeling her small heartbeat and her warm temperature…
As soon as I woke up in the morning, I kicked the blanket. Because last night’s events came to mind.
If it weren’t for the thunder, I would have ended the story, and I might have seen my favorite’s surprised expression!
My face was burning to think that thunder had made things go so wrong, and that I had fallen asleep while groaning and shrieking in his arms like a surprised cat.
“No! You’re supposed to be not that kind of sister.”
I mean, I normally have a stone heart that’s hard to scare.
It’s not normally like that. I really didn’t know it was going to start thundering all of a sudden.
I just wanted to see his surprised face…
Ugh, as expected, the path of virtue is far and bumpy. I don’t have the basic skills yet!
As I was rolling around on the covers in embarrassment, Amber came in with a basin.
“Lady, are you up?”
Amber looked amazed because I, who had woken up first, usually overslept.
I was embarrassed and just nodded lightly.
Looking out the window, it was still raining. Somehow, I had an ominous feeling that I would have an unusual day today.
After a long sigh, Amber sensed something as she was looking at me carefully.
I’m sure the Duke’s ear will soon be filled with stories about my condition.
Amber is my personal maid, but the one who hired her is the Duke.
But the Duchess doesn’t do any internal work for the estate, so who manages the internal affairs of the Duchess?
I suddenly had a question, but I quickly forgot about it.
Well, Noah will handle it later.
Well putting the issues with the duchess aside, I’m sure I’ll get rid of the keyword “regretful lead.” I’m sure he’ll live happily with Noah because I want to see that. It’s a reward for me too, who reincarnated!
As the efforts of the past came to mind, a dose of reality hit me for a while.
I came here a year and a half after I had reincarnated, and I’ve been here for more than two years now, so I’m twenty-nine years old now!
I had to act cute like a child for the Duke all the time, and I had to make all kinds of jokes because of Lucian, who doesn’t eat much.
Knock, the grapes are here.
Oh, my God! Macaroons are here!
Here comes a nutty cookie.
What the hell!
From impersonating a delivery man to acting like a lively pony to the most shameful displays as a frightened cat, the ugliness I’ve been showing came to mind.
Oh, wait a minute.
I want to be alone.
As Amber was waiting for me, I made various facial expressions every single moment due to my racing thoughts.
Amber, who made me sit in front of the dressing table and had me wear a beige dress, began to braid my hair and struggled with styling decisions.
My emerald hair fell down to my waist like a waterfall.
Amber casually thought of which hair accessory she would put in it, until she saw the ruby-patterned hairpin that she ended up put on my head.
I was lost in thought, wondering about the wellbeing of some interesting creatures I recently parted with. Damian and the gang must have landed safely somewhere far away, right? Doggie, you’re free to go anywhere, and you’re living your own free life, right?
“Lady, I’m done dressing you up.”
“Thank you, Amber.”
It took quite a while to dress me up today.
While there are days like this, some days aren’t as intense.
I went down to the dining area for breakfast.
There was some damp air looming in the castle because of the rain.
It was quite chilly, so when I rubbed my forearms, Amber noticed quickly.
“Lady, are you cold?”
It is the time when late summer becomes autumn. Perhaps the rain that is falling now is an instance of autumn rain.
“I think it’s a little cold.”
“Then, I’ll bring a shawl. Please wait here for a moment.”
Amber finished talking and went back. I decided to lean on the railing and wait for her.
I was leaning on the railing and looking down when I heard someone’s feet approaching from behind me.
I absentmindedly turned my head towards the sound of the rushing steps.
“Are you an orator?”
(e/n: yeah, I’m not sure what she means by orator, it basically means a public speaker. So I think she’s basically calling him a celebrity.)
For some reason this morning, Lucian is running towards me with a contemplative expression.
It is very rare to meet him in the morning, and it is really amazing that this coincidence occured.
No, it’s raining, but why did you make yourself so bright?
My eyes were dazzled when I saw his bright face shining like a morning sun.
Oh, my eyes. My eyes have been blessed the very first thing in the morning.
I usually don’t get enough vitamin D.
My favorite. Are you taking care of me just in case I might get osteoporosis?
Any health issues are disappearing by the second, Lucian.
He grabbed me by the shoulder. Surprised, I moved away my hand that I had used to shield my eyes and looked up at him.
“Are you an orator?”
Lucian looked embarrassed at my question. I looked into the golden eyes that were moving busily around, avoiding matching my gaze, and called out again.
“Are you an orator?”
“…it’s dangerous to do that on the railing.”
I listened to Lucian and glanced under the railing.
The duchy’s patios and ledges are very wide and high. That’s why there have been numerous falls.
I would often stand on the second and third floors of the church, but this place is probably about four stories high because of its unusually tall floor height.
That’s why he came as fast as he did and was so surprised. He can’t run inside, he can’t run in general, he can’t even walk fast, or else he’ll diminish his elegant charm. What have I done to my favorite…
The male lead who has to walk gracefully let out an alarmed voice! What’s wrong with you ever since yesterday? Come on, man, wake up!
You are not only obligated to be a fan of your favorite child, but you are also obliged to protect his elegance!!
The reality and shame of the morning made me speechless.
As I bowed my head low, Lucian held me by my hand and lifted me up.
Our Lucian. You answer pretty well.
“I just don’t have the strength.”
I couldn’t say it was because of reality and shame, so I roughly covered it up with an excuse.
But it seemed like my body began floating. Lucian hugged me as soon as I was lifted up away from the railing.
“Are you an orator? for you to do that so smoothly”
“Let’s get you diagnosed by a doctor.”
Lucian tried to visit the doctor as if he couldn’t hear me.
He tapped me on the shoulder, and then he stopped and looked at me sideways.
No, when did you come all the way down here?
I thought I had only been carried for a short while, but we were already down on the first floor.
In the meantime, Amber, who brought me a shawl, found me from the top of the stairs and called out to me.
“Brother, wait a minute. I’m not sick. We have to wait for Amber.”
“Why should an employee keep the owner waiting?”
Lucian asked back in a low voice. Surprised by his harsh tone I had heard for the first time, I quickly blinked my eyes.
