Duke’s beautiful tailor - Chapter 28
Her face distorted, and she couldn’t hide it well.
Seeing her face, the duke looked at her tiredly and asked,
“Are you uncomfortable with me being by your side?”
“…oh, not at all.”
It was burdensome and painful beyond the uncomfortable level, but Helena forced a smile. How could she dare to ask the duke, who said he was tired, to leave.
Instead, Helena looked towards the entrance to the rose garden. She immediately felt the urge to get up and run towards it. But if she stood up as soon as the duke sat down, it would be too rude of her, so she worked hard to pay attention to the rose garden.
It bothered her greatly that the duke was constantly staring at her. Helena had kept her stiff face at this time.
With patience and ignoring the duke, she began to count the number of roses in full bloom on the arch.
But, perhaps because she was distracted, when the number of roses exceeded 112, the counting began to become confusing. She tried desperately not to turn her gaze toward the duke or squint at him.
In fact, the situation would have been pretty cool if it weren’t for the fear of being discovered by the Duke of Bronant. The countess’ garden was truly a beautiful place.
Various pale yellow roses were blooming in the rose garden where Helena was sitting now, and there were more than seven varieties of roses in the flower beds and arches alone.
She thought she could sit comfortably for a long time just looking at the flowers while smelling the sweet rose scent.
Moreover, beside her sits such a beautiful and wonderful Duke of Bronant. He wasn’t the kind of person Helena could sit with and talk to, regardless of his status or her status.
Just having the opportunity to sit side by side with him like this could be called luck. Had it not been for the guilt and worry of deceiving the duke, Helena would have felt her heart pounding and spied intently to his face.
Of course, Helena’s chest was still beating hard right now. It wasn’t because the duke is handsome, but because she was anxious right now.
Helena, who had never lied to anyone before, was very uncomfortable with this situation. Moreover, the duke kept looking at her. It wasn’t rude, but it was a very blatant look.
Eventually, when Helena could not stand it any longer and was about to get up to run away, the duke opened his mouth first.
“I’ll have to leave soon. If I don’t show up for too long, I’ll be very disrespectful to the Countess of Cashford for inviting me. Would you like to get up as well, Miss Helena?”
“Yes? Ah yes.”
Helena would rather sit here rather than get up with the duke. but she can’t keep hiding here. So in the end she nodded her head quietly, thinking about nothing.
The duke stood up first and extended his hand to her. Helena was a little surprised. There was no need to treat Helena, who was neither a noble nor a mere commoner, with courtesy. but the duke’s attitude was just polite.
She felt that since the day she went to see him as a man, he had never treated his subordinates recklessly.
It was when Helena stood up while holding the duke’s hand. With the sound of something being ripped apart, her body faltered. In a hurry, she got up from her seat and stepped on the long end of her skirt.
