Chubby Lady - Chapter 8
Even holding a note was a greed and a luxury. “Thank you. I never learned to cook. I worked as a chef at a restaurant called Bacchus for nearly three years.” “What?! Bacchus? Oh my gosh! I really liked the food there! In particular, the taste of the grilled lamb ribs and salmon steak is still unforgettable. Are you more than happy to work there?” Raising her voice with a flushed face, Lloyd finally grabbed Elena’s hand tightly. Elena, who was caught with her bare hands without gloves, couldn’t do anything in embarrassment. It was bad manners to shake off the hand of someone who praised the dish so vehemently.
“Thank you “
“You’re a very shy person, Elena. It’s okay. I had a really good meal thanks to you.” Lloyd seemed to think that Elena, blushing and stuttering all the way, was shy. The anxiety and fear of not letting the burn marks on the back of my hand be found on my already small and thin body made me cringe even more. “I have to go back in, so I’m done with it…” “Okay. Elena, we’ll see you next time. So what?” As she managed to free her hand from Royce’s hold, her eyes quickly reached the back of her hand. Elena’s Woe.
Lloyd’s expression hardened visibly at the sight of the scar. “What’s wrong with your hand, Elena?” Elena quickly hid her hand behind her back, but Lloyd’s gaze followed her where it disappeared. It felt like a long-hidden wound was being stabbed with a knife at her expression, as if she had seen the most disgusting thing in the world. “I have to go. I have to tidy up the kitchen.” “Elena, how did you get so hurt? Hurry up and get treatment before it’s too late”
“It’s already too late!” A scream mixed with tears bursts from Elena’s mouth, whose face was so red that it was almost ready to explode.
Realizing that she had made a big mistake, Lloyd closed her mouth as if speechless. It was the moment Elena was about to return to the kitchen, barely swallowing her welling tears. “What happened?” Wood approached and blocked Elena’s way. His expression hardened with anger, his cold voice that sank low, and deep blue eyes that looked like he was piercing through his miserable heart. It was unbearably painful to be shown this to the man I had secretly loved for two years. Elena ran away from Wood, barely suppressing the cries that burst from her throat. “Wait a minute, Elena!”
I heard Wood’s voice calling my name anxiously, but I couldn’t stop running away. With no family or friends, the count’s mansion was no different from home, but I still had to run away. I ran and ran through the garden in pitch black darkness, hiding in the woods that surrounded the mansion. That night, it seemed that I would not be able to sleep at all in the mansion.
Hiding in the birch grove connected to the count’s garden, Elena sat down on a rock under the tree and waited for the commotion to pass. She didn’t go far because she was afraid of the deepening night and the deafening silence, but it was better than going back to the mansion. “I have been wanting to work here for a long time. “
The working conditions, the cooks she worked with, and even Wood, whom she had cherished alone in her heart. Everything was perfectly fine. The desire to work for a long time in the count’s mansion was sincere. Will others ever get it in their lives?
