I'm Not Interested In The Main Characters - Chapter 39
Translator and Editor: Effe and Nabi
The butler and Lloyd welcomed Cassian, who returned from Duke Lowell’s residence.
Cassian hated the inefficient custom of having all of the employees come out and greet him when he returned home. He was usually greeted by a couple of maids and the butler, but at such a late hour, the butler was often alone without a maid.
The butler picked up his jacket and followed him.
“I’ll take a bath first.”
“Your Excellency, before that, I have something to tell you about the room the Madam will be using.”
Cassian nodded and headed towards his bedroom.
He had uttered these words impulsively when he saw Elysia’s clinging to Ramote, so he had forgotten his command to Lloyd.
Although had an unused room that was connected to his bedroom, it was too small for Elysia to use. Maybe that’s why the butler brought up those words.
“That room seems too unreasonable for the Madam to use. She’ll need a dressing room as well, and she’ll only be able to get to it through your bedroom.”
When Cassian arrived in the bedroom, he unbuttoned his shirt and listened to the butler.
Besides being narrow, there were many minor problems as well.
“How about sharing the Master’s bedroom?”
Cassian, who was just about to get him ready for the room he had originally planned, rubbed his chin.
It wasn’t a bad idea.
He then made a proud face at the butler’s answer. Thinking that the butler was as he expected.
Butler Philip has been with Cassian for over ten years. He could tell whether or not the master was satisfied just by looking at his face.
“I’m really sorry that the room the Madam is going to use isn’t ready yet. Wouldn’t it be rude to give out a guest room to someone who will soon become the mistress?”
Lloyd, who followed along, looked at the butler and clicked his tongue.
The butler is probably the only one who can say such a brazen thing to His Excellency. There, in front of His Excellency, he was also very good at talking about the Madam.
Lloyd also called her Madam in front of Elysia, but he had never brought it out in front of His Excellency.
Cassian hardened his expression as he thought there was a point.
There was a problem that the wedding was soon and the room was still not ready.
“Isn’t the room ready yet?”
“No. There is absolutely nothing wrong with staying right now, but it has to be perfectly prepared.”
Raising the corners of his mouth, Cassian glanced at the butler.
It meant that it was already ready.
“The Mistress will leave late tomorrow afternoon.”
“We will prepare it by then.”
“Do that. Oh, you better shut down all the other rooms on the second floor.”
The butler widened his eyes for a moment, then smiled softly and lowered his head.
“The bath is ready.”
Before Cassian entered the bathroom, he said to Lloyd. “Get the report by tomorrow. You may leave work tomorrow.”
Lloyd had come to the kitchen thinking to have a quick meal and go home. While he was eating, the butler came into the kitchen with a hum.
“Kitchen chief, please prepare a drink for His Excellency. Something good for stamina.”
Lloyd peered at the butler with an astonished look on his face.
It’s already shocking to watch as he speaks blatantly against His Excellency, let alone ask to prepare a drink good for stamina.
There’s no way His Excellency couldn’t have known what that meant.
A drink good for the stamina for His Excellency, who doesn’t seem to shed a drop of blood even if you stab him—
“Butler, do you need something like that?”
“Pft. You still have a long way to go. Lloyd.”
He wrinkled his face, asking what that meant. Seeing his expression, the butler sat across from Lloyd with his eyes gleaming sharply.
“His Excellency’s lips seem to be chapped a lot lately, shouldn’t you be more concerned?”
Lloyd, who was eating the soup, stopped his spoon.
He was a frighteningly quick-witted butler, but this time, it didn’t seem like it.
Lloyd opened his mouth with a victorious smile. He said, “You don’t seem to understand why his lips were chapped.”
“What do you mean?”
“The butler will find out soon.”
Then, he continued his meal with a meaningful smile.
It wasn’t the first time he did his business while waiting as Cassian and Elysia met. The appearance of His Excellency who enters with a normal face and comes back with a scar on his lips? Lloyd shook his head.
He absolutely does not want to know that the kiss between His Excellency and the Madam is passionate, but what can he do with what he saw?
The butler was trying hard to figure out what Lloyd’s words meant.
“Maybe…..the Madam is using hands …”
[ T/N: Meant to physically commit violence to someone with the hands. ]
Lloyd glanced around and screamed.
“What nonsense are you talking about?”
“That is fine. I’ve been worried that His Excellency won’t get married, but I didn’t know he would have that kind of taste.”
Though he added a few words to clear the butler’s misunderstanding, the butler was already not listening to him. He just couldn’t understand how a deep, strong kiss could lead to sexual taste.
Looking at his reaction, Lloyd was disgusted with the butler, who was getting more and more out of his mind about what he was thinking.
It was difficult to eat more.
“More than that, butler. His Majesty doesn’t like sharing a room, so what are you going to do?”
“Is that possible? The two get along so well?”
‘You’ve never seen it, have you?’ Lloyd couldn’t utter those words at the butler’s sparkling eyes and swallowed it.
The butler must have had nothing to do with that.
“I think we should prepare a new room as a shared bedroom in advance. The bedroom is too small for two people right now, anyway.”
The butler smiled slyly and turned to the chef again as the preparation of the drink seemed to take too long.
Contrary to what he had told Lloyd, there was no doubt about the Master’s physical strength, but the Madam will come the next day, so he should replenish energy in advance.
“Yes, what should I do?”
Revos, who was handling papers in his palace, frowned at the servant’s words.
He had met her a couple of times, driven by the idea that she looked a lot to his taste, but he didn’t bring her to bed because it was around the time he was going to break up with Elysia. Because it was the time when he cut off the girl, with the intention of catching her again.
“Tell her to wait.”
He opened his mouth again to the servant who was leaving, after receiving his order.
“…No. Just let her in here.”
It was because he was reluctant to bring other women than Elysia to the parlor. Revos still did not know how terrible Elysia thought of the parlor.
As he continued his thoughts of Elysia, Lumière entered the office.
“Greetings, Crown Prince.”
“It’s been a while. Please sit down, Lady.”
He greeted Lumiere with a friendly smile.
Wearing a mask in order not to reveal his true feelings whenever he was dealing with anyone was half ingrained in his body already.
“I apologize for coming without a message in advance.”
Revos beckoned the servant to come over with tea.
Then, he glanced at Lumiere and admired how great her appearance was. She had the opposite charm to Elysia, who had a strong impression. That thought reminded him of the first time he met Elysia. Until then, she was rather similar to Lumiere.
When he asked her to stay by his side, she was obedient and would give him everything. He still wondered how she had changed so much.
Recently, Elysia has completely changed her personality as well as her impression.
Now, the woman who acted as if she would give him everything had changed so much that his desire to suppress her slowly rose.
Revos opened his mouth when he saw the servant handing over the tea and leaving.
“Why are you here?”
“Please withdraw your surroundings. These are words that only you should listen to.”
Lumiere’s eyes lit up in a different light in an instant.
Her transparent eyes gave the impression of a kind and innocent person, but there was poison in her eyes that came to mind in an instant.
Thinking it was quite interesting, Revos beckoned the waiting attendants.
“Lady, I hate wasting time on useless things.”
Lumiere smiled faintly as if she already knew. She continued, “Before we get to the point, I want to ask you a question. Do you still love Lady Lowell?”
Revos’ hand, which was holding the teacup, stopped for a moment.
Elysia and the word love was something he had never thought of. She was his own, so she was just something to get back.
“I don’t see any reason why I should have such a conversation with the Lady.”
“I can help.”
“If Your Highness still has feelings for Lady Lowell, I would like to help.”
She wasn’t the lady who looked like she would shed tears just by shoving her.
He stared at her as if exploring with his sharp eyes before opening his mouth again.
“Is there any reason for the Lady to do that?”
“Because I also have something I want.” She answered. Lumiere did not avoid the Crown Prince’s gaze and looked at him confidently. She received Revos’ gaze and waited for his answer with a calm expression.
“What do you want?”
It wasn’t an answer to affirm that he still had a heart for Lady Lowell, but it could be interpreted in a positive way. Lumiere thought according to his answer.
“I want Duke Esteban.”
She continued her words, “I think there is something attractive about the Duke.”
Revos raised the corners of his lips crookedly.
His judgment was twisted as the woman who once could have come to his bedroom said that she wanted the Duke of Esteban.
It was all because of that damn Duke of Esteban…
If he hadn’t seduced Elysia, this wouldn’t have happened. However, it seems that he seduced not only Elysia but also other women with that handsome face.
And so, he quickly decided that he had to save Elysia from the Duke of Esteban.
Since she’s being fooled now, she’d be grateful if she came back to him.
“I’m sure the Lady didn’t know that the two were getting married soon.”
“There is a way I have thought of. If Your Highness will make your mind up, I will tell you.”
The fact that she did not give up even though they were about to get married made him want to hear more.
Nonetheless, there was no reason to reveal one’s true self first.
“Let’s hear about the method first.”
Revos was the person who benefited the most from Elysia and Cassian’s engagement.
Thanks to the support of the Duke of Esteban, he was in the midst of widening the gap with the Second Prince.
There were not a few people who escaped from the power of the Second Prince as the age of the King was clearly declining. If it goes this way, the second prince would never again threaten his position.
It had been a long time since he had forgotten that his father, the current Emperor, had offered the card of support from the Duke of Esteban in exchange for giving up Elysia.
He himself is going to be the emperor, so why should he give the woman he wants to another man?
Lumiere finally opened her mouth to the light of Revos’ eyes that were gleaming with desire.
“Now, Your Highness…”
