My Husband Hides His Beauty - Chapter 11
Translator and Editor: Skye and Mikki
But, she really can’t say that.
“Okay, I got it.” Leticia replied.
The conversation ended, they bid their goodbyes to each other, and went their separate ways.
All the soldiers followed the Lord and the three grandmothers went with Leticia.
“I wished the Lord would be a great Lord. At his age, he lost his parents at a young age and grew up being free-spirited—.”
Leticia replied, everyone was surprised at how nonchalant he looked.
“Every time I meet him, I get surprised, fall and scream… and seeing how he acts like that I don’t want to see myself like that… But what about Erden? After all that, it’s very annoying and pesky and now he is leaving for such a dangerous place.”
Leticia’s grandmothers were surprised.
“What? Madam? What are you trying to say?”
“You read too many books! Why don’t you write a novel now?”
Leticia came to her senses and was bewildered on that remark.
“What? That’s not it then?”
“Aigoo…How badly are you abused by your uncle and aunt, that you even blame yourself whenever something happens! Never do that from now on!”
Bastian said rigorously, her tone was so close to an order.
Then Alexa spoke softly.
“The Lord is never bothered by anything like that and avoids the nobles. There’s only one reason why he is moving.”
“What’s the reason?”
“I’m afraid I have to go too. A white sheet is hard to find. Bastian, please show it to the Mistress.”
Casaro spoke in a husky voice.
Bastian took Leticia to the stairs.
They went up until they reached the tower.
The tower allowed safe observation around the castle. When they finally got there, she saw the vast sky and wilderness.
Bastian picked up Leticia and put her on her shoulder.
She could see the Halstead army just leaving the castle. The scene of running after the Lord was very imposing.
When they went so far and looked small, dust suddenly rose thickly from the other direction.
They had an encounter with the demons.
Leticia let out a scream out of surprise.
“It’s alright. Please take this.”
Bastian took the binoculars out of her arms and handed it over to her.
Leticia looked at them with her naked eyes, soon she found a dark shadow.
She immediately realized why she said, “It’s okay.”
Erden is strong.
When he wields a sword, mana goes into the sword while he wields it.
The surroundings were empty as if dominos fell all at the same time. It was just a relaxing spectacle.
The scenery cleared up in a flash.
Leticia looked with her eyes wide open.
The battle is hard itself. But it ended so fast that she didn’t feel like it happened at all.
She looked down at Bastian after admiring him.
“That’s a great thing, right?”
Bastian replied with a smile.
“Since he was born, the Lord has always been amazing. He is one of the greatest in the history of his family. He punctured everything with lots of effort. After the death of his predecessor, he took over the castle and tried very hard while saying he can’t lose to the demons.”
“I can’t even stand up to a real demon.”
“Is that so? Then that’s a problem.”
Bastian said, while putting Leticia down to the ground from her shoulders. Bastian asked because she couldn’t understand what Leticia meant with that.
“How can I do that?”
“Think about it. To move on to the next level, there are obstacles first. You can only grow up if you meet a difficult opponent. But he had already settled here, so he needed stronger and more frightening opponents.”
It was only then that she understood for a little bit.
“So that’s why he is going far? To be stronger?”
“Yes, and he is going away to get rid of the danger that is coming to us.”
“Off the field.”
As expected, she is cute and kind to listen to.
Bastian smiled gladly at the thought.
But the next moment, the little Mistress said something unexpected.
“Then what does the Mistress of the Lord have to do when he leaves?”
“You let me stay here, you all call me Madam and Mistress like it’s customary. Which makes me want to do what I have to do.”
Bastian was dazed for a moment.
Soon after, she burst into laughter.
“Oh my God! Now I see you’re ‘Karahan’, aren’t you?”
“Karahan? What’s that?”
“It’s a dialect of the North. It means that you are not just a scarecrow or puppet lord, but a real one.” Bastian said.
“In any case, you have to think of responsibilities first. You have to mind others. People will be curious about what you should do during numerous events. That’s really great, Mistress.”
Her earnest words went to Leticia’s heart. It seems like it created a calm ripple that had never been there before.
“Is that so? So what would a ‘Karahan’ do?”
Leticia asked with a sparkle in her eyes. Bastian replied with her dependable face and smile.
“The Lord and Lady, he and his wife are the masters of the land. If one of them isn’t in the castle, the other one keeps the castle safe.”
“Protecting the castle’s safety.”
Leticia followed suit.
It was a good story.
However, her face was filled with anxiety when she thought that she had not yet explored this large castle.
‘How do I keep up with it when I haven’t finished my quest?’
There was no way Bastian didn’t know the inside of the castle.
She held back her laughter so much that her jaw ached. Eventually, she patted the Mistress’s head with her big hand.
“That’s what I mean. I don’t ask you to do a fabulous job, it’s very simple. What I want you to do is something you can do.”
She bent her knees and said looking into Leticia’s eyes.
“First of all, would you like to make a knot of promise?”
“It’s a custom in the North. They can return safely from the battlefield by hanging handmade a knot for your husband’s sword.”
“You have that kind of custom?”
“Yes. The fear of the northern men is not death, but never coming back. The Lord is from the North, so he will feel the same. If you give him a knot, even if he pretends that he doesn’t want it, I know he’ll feel happy.”
“How can you be so sure?”
“Because I know!”
Leticia laughed at Bastian’s words.
“I want to make a knot then, do you know how to do it?”
“Oh, now that’s the problem. I don’t know how because I only saw it once.”
The two then descend to the tower.
When she went to the maids and asked them, they said they know how to do it and they were willing to teach her.
It’s good to have something to focus on.
While Leticia was in the middle of knot making, the people of the castle prepared for the wedding.
There was a white-haired priest who lived outside the castle that visited every single day.
Sometimes the children ensembles would practice and the chorus would resound, it all sounded beautiful.
The days passed peacefully.
“Like this. Spin it around and bite it with your teeth… Ah, I have to get back now.”
After dinner, they gathered in the hall as usual. She made a knot under the guidance of the maids.
Bastian came with various kinds of boots, saying it had nothing to do with her work.
Leticia ate a lot of meat pies that Casaro baked for her, so she was very full. The fireplace was just moderately warm.
Is this happiness?
It was then when she was having fun with her hands without worrying.
Clang clang clang!
Suddenly a loud ringing bell resounded loudly.
The ten towers around the vicinity were ringing the bells all at the same time.
There was a scream that followed.
“The monsters attacked!”
Everyone was surprised.
