Chapter 119 – As expected, this genre is a waste (2)

In addition, there was something I had learned from this mansion while thinking about it.
“hmm… it’s snack time again.” I whispered. I scurried back to my room when I remembered. The maids might wonder why I wasn’t there at this hour. I’m still full but perhaps I could entertain some more food.
We had breakfast in the morning, had dessert prepared for after an hour for some reason, and even tea after tea time an hour later.
This I knew, for the duration I’ve spent here.
Oh, this place has the heart and generosity that feeds people even though they’re full, just like in Korea, before Chaser lost his humanity. But full generosity in a villains’ mansion were words that didn’t fit with each other just like peppermint on milkshakes.
I said good things are the best and my stomach was satisfied. It’s better to have a kind mansion than to eat in a harsh place that could be usually read in a book. I might not have even lasted for more than three days if I ended up on the streets; where there could be thieves and murderers.
As I was knocking on my bursting stomach that morning, Chaser came in. Oh, correction, he wasn’t rough enough to rush in. He opened the door and showed up with a very graceful step.
“Iana, did you sleep well?” He asked as his entire being entered my room.
I looked up at the sky instead of answering. Well, the time was already past 2 p.m. which was not exactly the right time to ask if I had slept well.
“I don’t think that’s the right time to ask.” I replied.
He smiled slightly when I replied with a face that was neither laughing nor grumpy. It was a friendly smile that was not different from the day before.
“But I’m always curious. I’ve been curious once again. Whether you sleep well or eat well.” He said.
If that’s the case, it’s better if you didn’t send me to jail. I didn’t spit it out to that extent. Chaser didn’t look angry even though I fell asleep the day before without a word. On the contrary, he seemed to have a softer and more charming smile than before.
“As you can see, I’m well.” I answered to fill his curiosity.
“Yeah, it looks like it.” He said as he clapped casually and came closer to me. “I have something to show you.” He uttered, making me curious.
“You want to see it?” He added.
He seemed to have decided to take it naturally no matter how I reacted. I was confused yesterday, but now I am convinced that this was Chaser. I nodded my head as if I was having great pleasure.
“Would you like to come with me?” He asked.
Come to think of it, he was also a great duke of the empire. Oh, isn’t it now? Even so, duke is now also a position of power. That would mean there’s a lot of work to do. He must be a very busy man based on his position. But he still managed to visit me once in a while.
If Ricdorian’s father was only trash inside the house, Chaser’s father was considered trash outside. He was authoritative and rather than busy with writing and filling his position, he had a great pleasure in wielding his swords.
Because of this, Chaser has been working as a duke since childhood, which was also a sentence in the book describing him.
The reason I remember this was because, in the book, this man said, ‘I am a bad guy, but I had a story and was deprived.’
I felt sad at the time. Reading that makes me pity him.
“Are you not busy?” I asked him.
“Yes, I’m not busy.” He replied back. Chaser naturally took my hand and kissed the back of it.
“I’m not always going to be busy in front of you.” Chaser added.
He was neatly dressed today as well. Looking at the tightening of the pants or wrinkle-free suits, I thought it was a very ascetic dress unlike his face. Even though he’s like this, in the book, and when he’s in bed… He was like that, by the way, always… having that seductive face.
‘and the body… that big.’ I felt my face flushed from realizing what the hell was I thinking.
‘Oh no, think of good thoughts and other things, Iana.’ I thought to myself. I felt the need to snap out of it, especially now that Chaser is in my room.
I stroked my stomach and erased my stern imagination.
“I’m sorry, but I don’t think I can make it. I’m so full.” I said.
“Is it because you’re full? That makes you uncomfortable to walk?” Chaser asked.
“…right?” I said, feeling uneasy. Then, his smile grew thick, making me more anxious.
‘Oh please stop smiling.’ I thought as I looked at him.
“Then I can carry you.” Chaser remarked.
“What?” I was lifted up before I could answer anything.
What kind of man is this guy, lifting my body so effortlessly? Without panic, he quickly grasped the hem of my clothes swaying at the center. No matter how much he laughed and smiled, I was careful because he was a villain, but now I had to say what I had to say.
“Hey, don’t you ever ask permission?” I asked him in a strong and loud voice.
After much consideration, I tried to express the sense of propriety in my own way.
“Also, you aren’t polite when cutting the breakfast steak this morning, right?” I added.
He laughed lightly and replied. “I’ve solved it now. It’s settled.”
Settled…? Didn’t he hear me saying that I was full? I snorted. But why does it feel like I was farting with my mouth?
“I don’t call this a solution.” I said with a frown. “Aha. I will not do this next time. I learned from this.”
I saw his face, but I didn’t think he would let me down even if I asked him to. I think I’ll let go of my situation this time because he’s showing a straight face, and I don’t think it’ll be good to protest here.
In addition, it was a face that was not good to be seen for a long time anyway. I gave up quickly, wondering what it would be like to have a scuffle.
“Where are we going?” I asked.
“It’s close.” He strode easily even though he was carrying me. It was marvelous that there was no hint of shaking in his body. It would be evident that this man’s body was that strong.
He was not a knight. To be exact, he did not have to have a knighthood because he was a duke. Nevertheless, I knew well that he was both physically and mentally fit. It’s just that it was unusual and extraordinary. He’s got both a strong mind, and body.
In the book, his weapon was not a normal sword…
“Here it is.” Chaser blurted as we ended up facing a huge door.
Ricdorian has a special ability. As I saw, it was an abnormal physical ability that wasn’t human. And for him, his opponent, for the villain…
I swallowed my saliva when I remembered his ability.
Click, the door was opened.
Regardless of whatever I imagined, I opened my eyes round to the scenery in the room. The scenery in the room was more ordinary than I thought. No, it was different from what I imagined because of the chronological table, which might contain the plot of the original story or the biography of Chaser’s misdeeds.
But it was hard to stand in here in a different sense.
‘…[I’m] not even a mafia boss.’
There were countless people standing on both sides of the room, just like in the hallway yesterday. But since this was a room, there were fewer people than yesterday, but these eyes were more burdensome.
“Here you are.” One of the people exclaimed as we made our way into the center of the room.
