Amelia Bookstore - Chapter 4
“That’s fortunate. If I had made any embarrassing expression or sound, I would have killed him… No, he would have died.”
She kept saying things like that with a face that looked like she couldn’t kill a single insect, and in a way, it was even scarier. Amelia, who was smiling at him, suddenly asked a question.
“By the way, Edwin. Why did you come dressed like that today?”
“Oh, I almost forgot. There was a robbery around here and I was driving around to check.”
“Yes. Stealing from an empty store. He encountered a seal, stabbed him with a knife and ran away. This place is also a sparsely populated place, so I came here with caution”
“Yes, I will be careful.”
Edwin muffled his words, and Amelia responded quickly. Although it was a horrific incident, Amelia decided to close the bookstore and enjoy a good time in her room for a while. Recently, the speed of reading books could not keep up with the speed of reading, so there were piles of things to see. she said cheerfully.
“Then, just in case you don’t know, the bookstore is closed for the time being.”
“It is difficult, Miss Amelia.”
“I like it more when I’m in this bookstore than in my mansion. The sound is comfortable and happy. Having a leisurely time of the day is nothing but strength. I don’t want to be disturbed.”
“Oh, no. Even if I say that, I don’t want to be a victim of an incident even if I’m an onlooker…”
Amelia was a little dazed at his serious words. Thank you for liking this place so much, but she had no intention of sacrificing her safety for Edwin’s leisurely time. It is often said that the customer is the king, but in Amelia’s bookstore, she was the king. The problem was that she was attracted to Edwin’s face a lot.
“ ..Then I’ll give Mr. Edwin an extra key. I rest in a safe place, and Mr. Edwin may rest as he pleases.”
“You give the key to an outsider. That’s……”
“It doesn’t matter because you are sure of your identity. And I don’t think Mr. Edwin would do anything strange to me.”
Amelia shrugged her shoulders as if it wasn’t a big deal. A knight of the royal family, a nobleman, and a tall-eyed woman, he is a handsome man with a good personality. There were a lot of beauties around him, but she was sure he wouldn’t be interested in an ordinary woman like herself.
In fact, Edwin’s feelings for Amelia were that she was eccentric and peculiar, and there was no other meaning to it. However, he was captivated by a strange feeling again by her very simple attitude. Because a while ago, didn’t she say that I was obviously handsome, that I sometimes made her heart flutter?
Her expression, which became dry as if she was looking at a stone that fell on the side of the road in an instant, made him think of arrogance. Amelia, who was looking at Edwin like that, opened her mouth again, wondering if he might be embarrassed because of his position as a knight.
“If you don’t like it…? Even if it bothers you, I will just leave it open”
. “It’s not that I don’t like it. Thank you for the favor.” Edwin hastily stopped her for fear that Amelia might say, ‘I’ll just shut it down.’ It may not seem like a big deal to others, but to him it was really desperate. As I told her, this bookstore was the only place where I could relax without being disturbed by anyone. The reason he couldn’t even rest in the mansion was because his mother was openly forcing him to marry. To the point of being persistent. “Instead, I’ll escort you perfectly. Excuse me, but where does Miss Amelia live?”
Even if it’s too much, if you go to and from work together Edwin will feel a little more at ease. It was like But Amelia is blind He blinked and laughed.
“I live up here.”
“Yes. The first floor was a bookstore and the second floor was converted into a house.”
This building was also in the name of Amelia, so the construction was not difficult. Thinking of giving Edwin a cup of tea and handing him an extra key, she came out of the counter.
“Would you like to go with me for a moment? I have to give you the key, and I’ll give you a cup of tea. It’s a bit embarrassing to say this out of my mouth, but I make amazingly good tea.”
