IWDFLSB (Novel) Chapter 62

                    




C62

"That day, when the sun disappeared, and darkness arrived, raindrops began to fall.

Leandro stood there in the rain even after I left. With shoulders drooped in helplessness.

After having dinner with Diana's family and playing cards, I was surprised to return to my room late in the day and see that.

"Well, he's still doing that."

As the room I stayed in was near the back door, I could catch a glimpse of Leandro through the window. He stood there as if trapped in his place, endlessly staring at the ambassador's residence.

It was yesterday when Ambassador Leok used all formal and informal methods to get rid of the journalists wandering around the mansion like a pack of wildcats. Thanks to this, Leandro, who was doing this alone, stood out.

"Ugh, that stinks."

Do you think my heart will soften if you act like the male protagonist of a romantic novel?

"It just gives me goosebumps."

Stay like that for the rest of your life, and I'll see if I come out. I'm sure I won't even blink even if he gets seriously sick from too much rain.

Sigh.

I vigorously closed the curtains and lay on the bed in my comfortable pajamas. At times like this, it was best to fall asleep quickly.

Knock! Knock! Knock!

I must have fallen asleep, but a strange noise mixed with the sound of rain disturbed my sleep.

"...what?"

Sleep quickly slipped away. It was the sound of something small and sharp hitting the window.

"Ah, this guy."

Did he go crazy because he was in the rain for too long? Why is he making a fuss throwing stones at other people's windows?

At this moment, if someone asked me to name the two things I hate most in the world, I would answer without hesitation. The first is Leandro, and the second is anyone who wakes me up.

I was very upset and opened the curtains and the window. Even if that meant waking up everyone in the neighborhood, I would end up showering him with curses.

"Hey! This is..."

Starting from profanity, all kinds of flashy insults were about to come out of my throat.

"Tay?"

Although he wore the same robe, the person outside the wall was Terence, not Leandro. There was no way I couldn't distinguish them.

After checking my face, Terence slightly removed the hood from his robe. As expected, it was Terence.

"Hey, what's happening?"

I tried to shout loudly without realizing it, but I choked my voice for fear of being seen. I didn't know, but I had to be careful since these days were an important time.

Terence pointed to himself, then to the wall and to me. In general terms, it seemed to mean whether it was okay to climb the wall and reach where I was.

"It's okay."

While making a big circle with both arms, Terence's body, surrounded by dark red energy, floated. He landed on the tree right in front of the window in a familiar position, as if he had flown many times.

"What happened?"

I thought it must have been urgent for Terence to come to see me like this in the middle of the night.

"Did I wake you up by any chance?"

However, the other person was actually more relaxed than expected. No, I couldn't say he was relaxed, although I could feel a subtle sense of excitement on his face.

"It's okay. I wasn't sleeping deeply; I was just in and out of sleep."

"I'm sorry. I received news that I want to tell you as soon as possible."

"Did something big happen?"

"If by something important, you mean significant, it could be."

"What is it?"

He scratched his embarrassed cheek, then cleared his throat.

"Congratulations on your divorce, Ethel."

At that sweet voice, I made a dumbfounded expression for a moment.

"...What?"

"In reality, I just came back from the temple. I had to pass by there for some other matter and happened to find out."

"Has my divorce been approved?"

"Yes. It's late, so the official announcement won't be until tomorrow morning."

"Ah... well."

"Ethel?"

"What can I say, I really don't feel anything."

I finally divorced. I was no longer Leandro's wife or Ethel Cassius. It was finally the end of a difficult relationship.

Gradually, my heart began to warm, and a sense of euphoria spread throughout my body. Naturally, a loud sound came out of my mouth.

"Whoa! I'm divorced! Heh..."

Immediately, I covered my mouth. I was so happy that for a moment, I forgot about the current situation. I must be careful, careful.

Hehe. Still, there was no way to stop the laughter that came out. I smiled and looked at Terence.

"Did you come here on purpose to tell me this?"

Terence raised the corners of his mouth.

"I wanted to tell you the good news as soon as possible, and more than anyone, I wanted to be the first to congratulate you."

"The first?"

Only then did I notice Terence's hair and clothes. He was soaked, probably because he had been walking in the rain.

"Why do you have to do this?"

I asked immediately.

"No, it's not that I don't like it. I feel like you're too kind to me..."

This is what I have felt since the trial. We were able to turn the trial in our favor because he brought the head butler. It really helped me a lot.

"But what about me?"
