Chapter 18. Where Misfortunes Come

“Did you have a good trip?”

Enoch asked when Leticia and Elle entered the drawing room where Ian and him had been drinking tea.

Elle lightly shrugged her shoulders.

“Yes, but I couldn’t get the work done.”

Ian nodded with a look of relief that Elle didn’t show any sign of disappointment.

“I thought you’d be downcast because you couldn’t find anyone.”

“What do you mean? I’ll find someone.”

Elle sat next to Ian, vowing to find a craftsman who would surely make her accessories.

Leticia paused for a moment to giggle at Elle and Ian’s quarreling.

“Why are you standing there like that? Sit down.”

Elle saw Leticia standing there awkwardly, and beckoned her to sit in the chair across from her.

It was right next to Enoch.

“Oh, yes…”

Leticia sat down next to Enoch, as soon as their eyes met she glanced away shyly.

She could feel Enoch’s gaze and stared straight ahead.

‘I wonder if it’s okay if I sit next to you?’

Unlike the self-conscious Leticia, Enoch wore an indifferent expression while he poured tea into a Vienna cup.

“Don’t walk around too late. I’m worried about you.”

A warm tea was placed in front of Leticia.

Leticia thought the words were directed at her, so she looked up at Enoch. But he was handing a cup of tea to Elle.

When he glanced back at her, she met his troubled eyes.

“The same goes for you, Miss Leroy.”

The firm yet gentle voice made her feel better, and Leticia almost smiled in happiness.

She nodded quickly, trying to hold it in.

“Yes, I’ll be careful not to worry you.”

When Leticia said yes, Enoch smiled contentedly and drank tea.

Leticia glanced at him and blushed furiously.

It had been a while since she felt someone worry about her.

‘It’s warm.’

Leticia gripped the hot cup of tea Enoch had given her.

A feeling hotter than the cup she was holding bloomed in her chest.

Strangely, the feeling wasn’t unpleasant.

She was sipping her tea while contemplating that warmth when Ian said.

“Come to think of it, isn’t there an Imperial Knighthood ceremony soon?”

“That’s right. Aren’t you nervous, Brother?”

Ian asked as he had suddenly remembered, Elle also looked at Enoch.

Enoch smiled lightly as he faced their uneasy gazes.

“I’m not nervous.”

“Oh, Brother is so mature.”

“You’re coming with us, right?”

Ian asked Leticia, while Elle was busy teasing Enoch. While it was said in a questioning tone, it sounded more like a statement.

Enoch and Elle also turned to Leticia.

With three sets of eyes on her, Leticia asked cautiously.

“Is it alright if I go?”

“Of course!”

As Elle nodded her head excitedly, Leticia looked to Enoch.

Enoch smiled and nodded, and Leticia’s expression brightened.

“Yes, I’ll go celebrate with you.”

She was happy just thinking that she was going to celebrate with people precious to her.
