Count’s Syrup - Chapter 2
The Count came over and started talking.
“What’s that look like? There’s no such thing as drowning mice. Thanks to that, the porch is dirty.”
“…It rained on the way.”
Knowing that he was approaching, Sophia lowered her head while answering, but in the meantime, she did not miss the raised corner of his mouth. He was clearly laughing.
“Today’s work is over. I’ll call you when you need me. Stop going.”
The Count passed by, and her fellow maids came running, handing her towels and helping her dry herself. As Sophia put her wet clothes in the laundry pile and dipped herself in the warm water, she felt her insides boil. When I came out of the bath, it was already dark outside. When Sophia came to her room, there was a bottle of sleeping pills she had been prescribed today on the bedside table. Sitting on the bed brushing dry hair, she heard it.
“I also take medicine for someone, but you’re just really good at it, aren’t you?”
The corner of his mouth that had just laughed at herself was still vivid in her mind. Thinking of what he was doing, Sophia somehow felt unfair. Why should I take medicine? Shouldn’t that person who did the work for the cause have to eat? Sophia’s thoughts jumped to strange places when the stress was at its peak.
Just then, I heard the voice of Count Ulysses calling for Sophia along with a ringtone. ‘This guy called me whenever it was time to meet him. You’re asking me to get into the car again, right?’ It’s been 5 years since she worked under him, so I can see his behavior patterns with my eyes closed
As Sophia hurriedly went outside at his call, she suddenly looked at the vial of sleeping pills in her hand.
Instead of putting it back on the bedside table, she put it in her pocket and went to where Count Ulysses called her.
“Can’t you come sooner if I call?”
When Sophia entered the bedroom, the Count sat down on his bed and rebuked her in an annoyed tone.
“I’m sorry. What did you call for?”
“Yes, I understand.”
The Count gave a blunt, short answer, and Sophia ran out of the room. Again, it was as she expected. Sophia stepped and headed lightly to the kitchen. The sleeping pills in my pocket collided and made a clear sound. There was no one in the kitchen. It was because at this time, everyone went out to rest after work or enjoy their personal time. After adding water, Sofia deftly brewed the tea in no time. After a while, she took a look around and dropped a sleeping pill into the carriage. The white pill melted in the hot tea and quickly disappeared. Sophia looked at it with shaky eyes, then filled the tray with tea and headed for the Count’s bedroom.
“Count. I brought you tea.”
The Count accepted and drank the tea that Sophia offered him without question. She confirmed the moment when his Adam’s apple moved and the car passed over her neck, so she quickly looked away to avoid suspicion. The Count held out an empty teacup.
