Duke’s Exclusive Painter - Chapter 44
Roselia suddenly remembered her conversation with Cedric a long time ago.
“Okay. To be honest, I need your artworks for an art project that will be run by the Duke household in the future, and your paintings will be used as a commodity for trade between nobles.”
“A deal…a commodity?”
“Exactly for money laundering.”
Roselia stopped what she was doing and turned her eyes as she thought of the conversation that suddenly flash into her mind. The white canvas she was preparing for his next portrait was in front of her.
‘Are these portraits used for money laundering just like he said back then?’
For an artist, they wanted their works to be used solely for aesthetic purposes only. However, this proposal was quite lethal. It’s like my precious work is being used to clean up some messy teeth.
But to Roselia at that time, it was a proposition that sounded a dozen times better than what she thinks he intended to do with her.
As a commoner, she needed a strong backer. And as for that backer, she wanted someone who had no filthy desire for her, so it was more comfortable to deal with someone like Cedric, who was openly asked for her wishes.
Wow, what a bittersweet proposal if you think about it now. But I just didn’t mean to go against Cedric’s will. He said that he had sponsored her for that purpose from the very beginning. But just because…and even if he really didn’t say that…she really had no reason to argue with Cedric, nor do she have courage to do so.
‘For that purpose, you have taken care of me until now.’
When she realized that Cedric’s kind act was for his own benefit, her heart sank. When I reflect on the different relationship between A and E, the sponsor and the individual being sponsored is so clear that it etched in my heart.
So, to him, Roselia is nothing more than an expensive ornament. That fact…
‘…just what is wrong with me.’
I can’t do it at all. It’s all my fault for not being able to distinguish between work and falling in love.
If only I had taken good care of my heart, I wouldn’t have been this foolish. With a deep sigh, Roselia finished setting up and sat down by the window.
After a bleak winter with beautiful snow falling from the sky, a warm spring with fresh breeze has returned. It was natural for Roselia to fall in love with him, just like the laws of nature that change over time.
Cedric was like a spring to her.
