Duke’s beautiful tailor - Chapter 43
“Did you cut your hair to deceive me?”
When Helena answered, frightened, he let out a small sigh.
“It’s a shame and it upsets me to think that you cut this beautiful hair so short to deceive me.”
The duke‘s long, white fingers gently stroked Helena’s wig.
The tips of his fingers that slid around her hair brushed her cheeks and touched her lips.
Helena was very embarrassed by the unexpected situation. She didn’t know how to react. The duke was approaching as if about to kiss.
Helena unconsciously closed her eyes. Her heart was pounding and she felt like her heart would jump out of her throat. But after waiting for a long time, nothing happened. Then Helena opened her eyes.
The duke was staring intently at her.
Helena’s face turned bright red. She had her lips closed and her eyes closed as if she were expecting a kiss. The duke opened his mouth as she was blushing in shame and embarrassment, not knowing what to do.
“I want to kiss you. Will you allow me?”
His eyes were very serious and hot.
Helena took a breath.
She didn’t know why he wanted to kiss her, and she didn’t know how to react here.
A virtuous lady would have to politely decline. But she couldn’t say no. She was afraid to offend the duke, but more than that, she did not want to refuse.
That being said, there was no way she could honestly say that she would allow it. When Helena only licked her lips and couldn’t say anything, Duke Bronant said in a low voice.
“If you don’t allow it, I won’t do it.“
For a moment, she asked herself. “Why do you think someone like the Duke wants to kiss me? I still don’t know why.”
“Do you need a reason for wanting to kiss?”
“I deceived the Duke. I knew the Duke would be angry about it. I thought the Duke would be rebuked for violating the Duke’s trust in <Book of Knights>.”
“I didn’t mean to reproach Miss Helena because…”
The duke smiled for a moment without talking.
“Because I already knew from the beginning.”
“From the beginning?”
She asked like a parrot at the unexpected revelation.
The duke watched Helena following and still said with a smile, “You are Raynor Stud’s daughter. I didn’t know that, but I knew as soon as I saw that the tailor who appeared with his short hair cut was a woman, not a man. Did you think you completely deceived me?”
Helena’s face turned red again.
“Was it that obvious?”
It was awkward, but she did her best, but as soon as he saw it, he recognized it, so he had nothing to say. The duke replied with a smile.
“I was a little confused. Prejudice is a very scary thing, so I thought that a woman could never have such short hair.”
How did he know?
