Chapter 63: <Chapter 63>

I sat on my sofa in my bedroom. Agnes came to me and started to brush my hair.

It was a busy day and after a hot bath, I felt relaxed. As Agnes brushed my hair slowly, I felt sleepy.

I shook my head a little to wake myself up and ordered, “Please find out about Yulia des Maximillian.”

“Yulia… des Maximillian?”

“Yes. Let me know everything about her including her reputation.”

“I have never heard of that name before.”

Agnes seemed curious. She was busy working on preparing for the ball today that she wasn’t present at the meeting with the Countess Ilan and her nieces.

I told her what had happened and what I knew of Yulia.

“She is the daughter of Viscount Morian. She will work as my maid starting tomorrow.”

“Pardon?”

Agnes seemed surprised. She replied, “I remember you saying you would hire another maid, but I thought you have forgotten about it since things have been so hectic.”

“… It’s true that I did forget. I have indeed been very busy.”

After a brief silence, Agnes replied, “Viscount Morian… Now I remember. Many years ago, Countess Ilan’s sister married him.”

“That’s right. The new maid is one of Countess Ilan’s nieces.”

Agnes nodded.

“I did hear that Countess Ilan has been taking care of her nieces like her own children. Her sister died after the birth of those girls.”

“Is that so?”

“Yes. Countess Ilan took great care to arrange a good marriage for the older girl. I heard she has been worried about getting a good husband for the younger girl too, so she must have been very happy when you offered this position for the girl.”

I agreed silently.

“…”

I tried imagining Yulia standing next to Lucretius, just like I did with Lisbeth.

Yulia seemed intelligent and tranquil. Unlike Lisbeth, I found her to be a good match for the emperor.

‘They will make a good couple.’

Once I realized this, I felt unhappy. I started to get upset.

Why?

I almost felt sick. Did I eat something bad today?

I was very nervous about meeting Countess Ilan, so perhaps I was just tired from all the stress.

Suddenly, I heard a familiar voice.

“Why are you looking so sad?”

W, what the…!

I turned around in shock to find Lucretius standing quietly.

“Y, you scared me… How long have you been standing there?”

“Not long.”

“You need to make some noise when you come in!”

“I wanted to surprise you.”

The servant always announced him when he entered a room, which meant he must have ordered them to remain silent. He had done this a few times before.

When I sighed deeply, he laughed.

“By the way, that maid of yours…”

“Pardon?”

I was shocked. How did he already know about the new maid? Who told him? Agnes? Samantha?

I hid my shock and answered calmly, “Yes, I decided to get another maid.”

“Hmm?”

“Pardon?”

“… I was talking about that silly blond. You know, the Duke of Aeal’s daughter?”

We were talking about different girls. I thought he was referring to Yulia, but he was actually talking about Lisbeth.

“Oh…”

Lucretius didn’t seem to notice my mistake. In fact, he was now openly staring at my hair as Agnes brushed it.

He asked, “So you are getting a new maid?”

“Oh, yes. I need more help with my work. It’s Countess Ilan’s niece.”

“I see. I’m sure the Countess is very happy about it. It makes sense you need another maid since one of them is actually quite useless.” He laughed at his own joke and continued, “Anyway, about that senseless maid.”

“Her name is Lisbeth.”

“I don’t want to remember her name. Anyway, she acted ridiculously again when I came in just now.”
