Enoch followed the sound of heart-breaking sobs as if he were possessed, and came upon Leticia running towards him with a tear-stained face.
She looked pitiful, as if she had been abandoned by the world.
Unable to leave her alone, Enoch brought Leticia home.
He would be lying if he said he didn’t feel sorry for her, but the first thing that struck him was how glad he was that she had found him that night when no one else was around.
Thankfully the twins welcomed Leticia without any signs of discomfort and took care of her more carefully than he could.
“No, not like that. You have to grab it like this.”
“No. Let’s give the damaged strawberries to my brother.”
Leticia and Elle had become closer and decided to go pick strawberries together. Enoch said it was not necessary, but Letisha shook her head and said it was fun. She then focused on picking strawberries.
“She looks better than yesterday.”
Ian said as he approached Enoch, who was watching the two silently. Enoch nodded, as if he had the same idea.
“Yes, I’m glad.”
“What happened, Brother?”
Ian, who had kept silent yesterday because he wasn’t in the mood, finally asked. Enoch gave a complicated sigh.
“She was excommunicated.”
Enoch ignored the startled Ian and kept his eyes on Leticia. He recalled last night, her teary voice whispering to him.
[I was chased out. There is nowhere for me to return to, Lord Achilles…]
She looked desolate, as if she would cry at any moment while talking.
It had only been a day, but news of Leticia’s excommunication had already spread. The reason for her expulsion wasn’t clear, but people were whispering that she didn’t have an ability.
‘Is that so important?’
If she has an ability, it’s good that she has one. If she doesn’t have an ability, shouldn’t you take care of her?
Enoch was incapable of understanding how the Leroy family could so easily kick a family member out because of their lack of ability.
“Pretend you don’t know.”
“That’s what I’m going to do.”
“Ok, thank you.”
Enoch lightly patted Ian on the head for his matter of fact statement, and returned to his room. As soon as he closed his door, he let out a big sigh.
The Achilles family wasn’t as well off as the Leroy family, so it wouldn’t be as pleasant a place to live. Enoch desperately hoped that Leticia’s would at least be at ease here.
Enoch soon found out that Leticia’s heart was not at ease, even here.
“I baked cookies. Would you like some?”
One day, Letisha visited his room with a lot of cookies. She smelled of sweets, and Enoch couldn’t help but smile.
“The twins would like them more.”
It was a gentle refusal.
Leticia let out a quiet sigh and carefully asked.
“Ah… Do you not like sweets?”
“I don’t like sweets, but the cookies that you make are delicious.
