My Husband Hides His Beauty - Chapter 10
Translator and Editor: Skye and Mikki
It seemed that Bastian was not the only one who was strange.
She saw it clearly.
Alexa, the strongest of Halstead’s three demons, suddenly hesitated when she found Leticia.
When Alexa finished her business he didn’t go back to the bar, instead she waited for Leticia to find her. If this was someone else, it wouldn’t have happened.
Alexa said rigorously.
“You can’t put any honorifics just like that. Just call me Butler.”
Leticia took a little thing out of her arms, not caring at all.
“Look at this. I found the brooch you lost yesterday.”
Oh my God! This is?
Alexa took it in amazement then instantly regained her stern look.
“Madam, you didn’t lie down on the floor trying to find this, right?”
“Ladies shouldn’t be kneeling inside or outside the castle.”
Leticia answered reluctantly. Even though she heard harsh criticism, she wasn’t discouraged.
‘I’d like to talk like that too one day.’
It was just so admirable.
Although Alexa is an old lady with white hair, her grace and elegance are beyond anyone’s reach.
It was very impressive.
In another sense with Bastian, she can read difficult books and keep them one after another.
Leticia isn’t sure why Bastian came to live in this castle, but she is sure Bastian came from a great noble family.
‘I could never be like that, especially when I wake up.’
Leticia headed to the kitchen after saying her greetings, there she saw the Chef Cassaro waiting for her.
Leticia ran quickly and greeted each other with fists like crew mates of a large ship.
“Madame! Please try this one first.”
The first thing Cassaro gave her was baked bread with a glass of red berries.
“This is delicious! What’s this red thing?”
“It’s the eyeballs of a high-class frog.”
Leticia’s eyes grew wildly.
But she couldn’t just lose. Leticia pointed to the pork sausage without even lifting her eyebrows.
“Is that the meat of an imp?”
Cassaro threw her head back and forth while laughing wildly.
“You’ve already adapted to Halstead’s recipe!”
Alexa and Bastian looked at her pitifully.
“Since you are my Lady, I’ll play with you.”
“You’re only thirteen.”
Of course, Casaro didn’t care about it at all.
These three old ladies seem quite close to each other, but Leticia wasn’t aware of it in the beginning.
They were all rescued from the wilderness by the previous Lords. Even before Erden was born, they were all here and now he treats them like his grandmothers.
Leticia also felt like she had three grandmothers instantly.
Right now, no matter how scary their faces are, they themselves aren’t scary.
It wasn’t just the people.
The mud-colored castle itself looks different now.
Did you think it was dried and dreary at first?
It’s not, it’s now a relaxing place with a reliable structure. It wasn’t outdated but instead old fashioned.
The dark places in every corner aren’t scary anymore, they’re now cozy. The places were just stimulated with imaginations.
Leticia went on for a walk after a hearty meal of northern cuisine.
She’d been wandering around the past few days, but she hasn’t finished looking around this huge castle yet.
“Let me see.”
While touring the western wing, she found an old mural in the hallway. There were combinations of different monsters in the picture.
When she lived with the Count, she wasn’t given a chance to look around.
But now it’s different.
Leticia approached it with her eyes shining in amusement.
‘Finally, there’s good information!’
Leticia now had one small goal.
Feign ignorance about his identity as the Monster Lord, and just bow to him naturally.
The next time she bumps into Erden, that’s when she decided to do it.
But, she isn’t known to be a timid and easily surprised person. So she had to practice more in the future.
‘Which of these is he?’
Leticia began to delve hard into the murals of the monsters.
At the same time…
Erden has just entered the western wing corridor with his soldiers. They found Leticia while they were inspecting around.
“Oh? Isn’t it the Madam?”
At that moment, the soldiers could feel the Lord’s dilemma.
She couldn’t believe that the Monster Lord appeared at that moment. Isn’t this the perfect situation for the proverb, “If you call out a devil, the devil will come.”!
So what should she do?
Does she keep quiet so that she won’t get noticed?
Or does he know it purposely?
‘How do I look less surprised?’
While the two are agonizing fiercely, Leticia noticed something strange.
The Monster Lord stood tall, while his eyes turned casually to the mural of the monsters.
Leticia failed again this time.
She rebuked internally, but it was too late. Erden saw everything Leticia had appalled of.
This time, he didn’t stroke and turned his head, but he can’t feel anything.
‘You can still make up for it!’
Leticia turned her head harshly.
‘I’ll just move on as if nothing had happened, and have a light and casual conversation.’
Leticia then opened her mouth.
“Hey, we’re getting married now, aren’t we?”
It seemed like they were having a not so common or light conversation.
But, Erden looked like he was in a good mood to let Leticia talk to him gently.
“Yes, that’s correct.”
“But when is the date?”
“That hasn’t been decided yet, since there are so many new things to prepare for you. I need more tread plates and your dresses need to be cut down more. As I told everyone that, the Gray’s family Lady is too small.”
Everyone looked at Erden.
Alexa came forward through the crowd. He had a look of embarrassment at his fair and neat face. She’s never seen him this embarrassed.
“Ahm, that is, excuse me, my Lord?”
“Even if the marriage is just a contract, she will still be your wife in the future. It’s not appropriate to call her a “little child” or “you”. It’s better to use a more polite tone when speaking.”
“What do you mean polite…? How do you do that…?”
How do I explain it? It’s what I feel in my heart.”
Leticia looked at them alternately with a perplexed face.
‘Erden’s already seen it. I’m just a kid who falls on the bed.’
My face turned red.
Leticia stepped up first and stirred her hand.
“I’m fine. Just speak comfortably. Erden is three years older than me. Spring, summer, fall and winter have to change three times.”
Erden awkwardly spoke.
“Well… anyway. You can relax in my castle. While I’m getting ready for the wedding, there’s a place I have to go and it’s going to take some time because it’s hard to get there.”
Leticia was taken aback by what he said.
He’s leaving somewhere far away.
When an event like this comes forth, she feels somewhat nervous.
When I was a baby, my parents left just like that and couldn’t come back anymore.
Thus it left a deep trauma in Leticia’s mind.
‘No, someone please say he shouldn’t go anywhere.’
She had that kind of childish thought.
