I Will Avoid the Male Lead and Make a Harem

Vol. 6: I Will Become a Parvenu

Chapter 13

 

I gave her money this time to call a doctor, and Penny will take care of her sister next to her so that her sister will not die.

“Have a safe trip.”

I waved my hand and saw Penny off.

Water dripped from my wet hair, which hadn’t yet dried.

I quickly shut the bedroom door and walked around the balcony, hunching my shoulders in the night breeze.

‘Is he already here?’

The curtains were flapping in the breeze. This implied his presence.

‘Valhail.’

This secret meeting, which had been going on for several days, was conceived when I called him under the guise of wondering what Camilla was up to.

I hurriedly wrapped a towel around my head after putting on my robe.

‘What should I do?’

I’m bothered by the fact that I’m barefoot.

But I couldn’t find my slippers, so I had no choice but to go to the balcony.

“You’re early.”

Valhail slowly turned to me as I spoke facing his broad shoulder.

At the same time, his brow narrowed.

“What made you look like that?”

“I sent Penny home because her sister is very sick.”

Valhail inquired, his gaze drawn to my bedroom.

“Then…… are you alone?”

“Yeah.”

Penny was always with me when Valhail came to see me. She was either doing needlework or organizing my clothes.

“Would you like to come in?”

“No.”

I shrugged my shoulders in response to the cold rejection that came right away.

“If you don’t want to, then don’t.”

“Not that I don’t want to…… It’s just that I can’t.”

“You can’t?”

“No, not that I can’t…… yeah, I don’t want to.”

While I was perplexed, his gaze shifted to my feet.

For a brief moment, he frowned, as if surprised by my bare feet.

What’s that reaction?

I wriggled my toes in embarrassment.

“……”

His silent gaze lingered on my feet for a long time, without any words.

It was difficult to understand what he was thinking.

Why are you staring so intently at other people’s feet?

“Don’t you think your feet are cute as well?”

“……Well.”

Only then did Valhail open his mouth, to which I responded half-jokingly.

“It’s too small.”

He looked at me, puzzled as if it were odd that I was standing on the floor with these feet.

My feet, which are approximately 230, were, of course, the correct size for my body.

A startling gaze passed over my waist, my thin shoulders that seemed to be breaking, and my ferny hands one after the other.

Valhail appeared surprised once more.

“You… why are you so small? Everything about you is so small.”

“Not all part is small.”

My chest and buttocks are quite big.

Why? Because I’m the heroine!

But he maintained a solemn expression on his face.

I turned around because I expected him to inquire about the quantity of food if I stayed any longer, so I quickly changed the subject.

“What about mother?”

“She stated that she was going to meet with the butler.”

“Did she say that herself?”

“Yes.”

“She must have a lot of trust in you.”

Otherwise, can she openly admit that she has an infidelity affair every night?

When I expressed surprise at Camilla’s behavior, Valhail explained that he had been directed to bring Cedric’s sword in order to gain her trust.

“Ah.”

That’s why she brought up the story about the sword earlier.

‘Sooner or later, Camilla’s going to flirt with Cedric as she returns the dagger.’

It’s so obvious.

“Is Shannon still like that?”

Shannon, who was confined to her bedroom, refused to eat anything.

Camille didn’t even bat an eyelid despite her defiance.

“She hardly ever drinks water.”

That is extremely cruel. She is her biological daughter.

Camilla may have been irritated when Shannon, whom she considered her “possession,” dared to oppose her order.

It came as no surprise.

In the original story, Camilla also forced Shannon to marry and took her, who returned as a widow, and they became estranged.

More than Camilla’s reaction, I was intrigued by him.

“I’m very sorry to hear that……”

I acted strangely because I was staring at the handsome face in front of me.

“Isn’t she so pitiful?”

Of course, Valhail’s defining characteristic was his inability to empathize with or care for others.

Shannon, on the other hand, was a special being to him, not just another person.

“Don’t you want to take her away and try to escape…… well, what do you think?”
