Duke’s Exclusive Painter - Chapter 10
Cedric went back to his senses a week later when he heard the aide’s words.
“Duke, a letter has arrived from Sirenzium Academy. You did not choose a student to sponsor on your last visit.”
Cedric’s quill stopped high. He put down his quill and took a deep breath.
“Why are you still holding onto your decision? Or is there anything that bothers you?”
Aide James, who was standing across Cedric’s desk and watching him, asked. Cedric, who usually has no frills in his work, seemed to be puzzled thinking how he was sluggish in such trivial tasks for some reason.
Cedric touched his forehead in embarrassment, unable to explain. Cedric’s vassals thought that the reason why he avoided banquets and didn’t get close to women was simply the influence of his family affairs as a child.
The serious disobedience of the former Duke of Schulach was an issue that anyone belonging to the Duke’s family knew about. Cedric, who was the Duke’s child, was tired of feeling love, or was just worried that he would be blinded by love and followed the same road as his father.
There was only one person in the family who knew his secret flaws.
It was Brooke, the doctor that Cedric had been in charge of since childhood.
Brooke knew about his flaws, since Cedric, who had just returned from studying abroad, asked about if his symptoms were related to some other physical problems.
When Brooke first heard about it, he was very embarrassed and surprised. Since then, that feeling turned into regret and awkwardness. It was a pity that he was physically traumatized by the shock of his parents’ love affair, and he was embarrassed as he had a responsibility to train a heir as the head of the household in the future.
Brooke, who received a huge salary every year from the Duke and was always on stand by to work for the family, quickly visited Cedric’s office.
Having let the aide go, Cedric gave a brief account of what had happened at the Academy. Brooke listened to his story seriously and thought for a moment before finally explaining it to him.
“Duke, that symptom is more likely to be Stendhal’s syndrome than any medical symptoms.”
“Yeah. It means that looking at a great piece of art will make you succumb into a state of extreme excitement momentarily. The range of excitement is both mental and physical, but in the Duke’s case, it is the physical symptoms that stood out.”
