I'm in Trouble Because The Emperor Thinks My Time is Limited - Chapter 24.1
Hearing Luna’s scream, the knights outside grabbed the closing door and burst in.
Among those who looked at me with trembling eyes, the knight at the front uttered something harsh.
The knight ran straight for me with a stern face.
“What are you doing?! Move!”
At the knight’s urging, the people watching me began to move in unison.
Luna followed the knight to me, and the others ran outside according to their respective roles. They were about to bring Lionel and the priest.
“Luna, please calm down first.”
My voice was calm even at Luna’s panic which was more serious than usual. It was because I had already experienced this several times.
I’m already used to this situation, but Luna doesn’t seem to be like that yet.
Unlike me, who was relaxed, Luna had tears in her eyes as usual.
Luna whimpered and hugged me.
I collapsed helplessly into her arms, and as her small body swayed under my weight, the knight quickly caught us both.
However, the knight seemed determined.
Luna shouted in a furious tone.
Her voice trembled noticeably.
“Yes, yes. It’s all right. You don’t have to worry.”
“It’s not okay at all!”
Luna answered my peaceful answer with a tantrum. Was it that shocking that she even burst into tears, even though the person involved was actually fine?
She even looked upset as she roughly wiped her tears with her sleeve.
“Why are you…”
“No. It’s okay, Madam Lindel.”
Luna kept her mouth shut even though she seemed to say something more. I couldn’t ask what I was going to say because she was biting down her lip.
Luna’s expression was not so good, so I wanted to soothe her even a little.
“I didn’t get hurt when I fell this time.”
I answered very brightly.
When falling backward as if I were fainting, there were often cases where I fell down incorrectly.
At times like that, I ended up with bruises on my body, which made people around me worry even more.
Still, it was a very good thing because I just sat down stably today.
I laughed jokingly, but Luna didn’t laugh along with me. Her sunken eyes scanned all over my face, and she soon took out a handkerchief from the pocket of her maid uniform.
Luna carefully wiped the blood off my lips, still biting her lips firmly.
After wiping off the blood, the knight took me from Luna and held me in his arms. I didn’t feel much excitement because I was already used to being moved like this.
The knight’s eyebrow twitched as his arms lifted me off the floor.
“Why didn’t you call us when you could speak?”
The knight’s mouth was firm. He also looked angry at something like Luna.
“Why would I bother to call when I’m fine?”
The knight, who was moving towards the bed, paused for a moment.
He called my name in a stiff tone.
I immediately apologized.
I laughed and laughed out of fear of getting scolded further. The knight seemed to be at a loss for words and quietly laid me down on the bed.
“…I didn’t ask for an apology. Please call us from now on.”
“Okay. I promise.”
Even though I had absolutely no intention of doing so, I nodded like an obedient child.
The knight also sighed deeply because he knew I wouldn’t keep my promise.
Since this had already happened repeatedly over the past few days, he knew that there was no use in nagging me any further.
If I were in the knight’s shoes, this would be extremely annoying.
Looking away from his distrustful eyes, I pretended to feel remorse and enjoyed the feel of the soft bed.
‘As expected, it’s better on the bed.’
Although there was a thick rug, it was uncomfortable to sit on the hard floor for a long time.
From now on, I should train my aura while and consider where I should collapse.
‘When will Lionel come?’
As days like today continue to repeat, one good thing was that I had adapted to this terrible atmosphere.
I don’t know if this is a good thing, of course. Anyway, I was relaxed even in the gloomy atmosphere.
I lay absent-mindedly waiting for Lionel and the priest, who had not yet arrived. Soon, the door opened and I heard the footsteps of people.
Instead of moving my head, I rolled my eyes and looked in that direction. As expected, Lionel was there.
Seeing that he was perfectly dressed up in a uniform from top to bottom, it seemed like he rushed here from a meeting.
“Are you here?”
I welcomed him with a very happy voice, just like I did with Luna.
Lionel’s face crumpled at my bright greeting, which did not match the serious atmosphere of the audience.
The sound of Lionel’s heavy footsteps quickly approached me.
He clasped my chin with one hand and wiped away the faint traces of blood with his thumb.
After quickly scanning the stains on my clothes and the scratches from my fall, Lionel asked with a slight growl.
“What are you going to say again this time?”
