The Villain Wants to Live Quietly chapter 100

Chapter 12. Changing story (2)

Arriving at the mansion, Ludwig relieved his travel addiction in the assigned room.

As I lay down on the bed, the accident that had just happened flashed past me, and my face flushed.

If I had taken my lips off even a little earlier, that wouldn’t have happened.

He didn’t know that Emilia would catch him in that situation. It felt like I was yearning for more and more affection.

‘Not bad.’

It will be a hundred times better than the coming of boredom.

The problem is, thanks to that passionate affection, did he end up showing the prospective father-in-law and mother-in-law something they couldn’t see?

The two seemed to welcome this aspect as they recalled their youth, but it was just embarrassing for the parties involved.

Dinner time will come soon, what should I do?

For the time being, it seems that there will be no face to face the Bayern couple.

‘What is Emilia doing?’

should i visit

As soon as he thought about it, Ludwig shook his head and laid his head on the pillow again.

Due to her slightly shy personality, I thought that she might be rolling around the bed by now.

Even if we meet after calming down a little, it won’t be too late.

‘I’d rather say hello to Sir Stefan and come back.’

I tend to enjoy spending time privately, but I’m not the type who likes to spend time meaninglessly.

Ludwig got up thinking that it would be better to go and say hello to Stefan if he was doing this.


At the same time, a knock was heard from across the door.

There is a high probability that he is a servant who took care of himself while he was here.

This time, Paula was not accompanied, so there was no particular reason for refusal, but Ludwig, who was comfortable being alone, nodded softly and said no.

“Yes, who are you?”

– Fly. can i come in?

“… … .”

But unexpectedly, the voice heard from the other side was that of the man who is the owner of this mansion.

Ludwig was dazed for a moment, but he managed to come to his senses, approach the entrance, and open the door himself.

Judging from the fact that he visited without a servant accompanying him, it seemed that he had something to say secretly.

Ludwig looked around and closed the door as carefully as possible.

“I’m sorry. Weren’t you surprised by his sudden visit?”

“Fine. I just wanted to go see Sir Stefan.”

“That’s fortunate. It seemed like they were right.”

After bursting out laughing, Stefan sat down on a chair provided in the room.

When Ludwig, who was seated across from him, said he would serve tea, Stefan shook his head low. It was an unspoken answer that it was not necessary.

“Will it be useful to have children from other people’s houses carelessly given to them?”

“It was Sir Stefan who asked me to be treated like a father. As a child, I can’t even run errands like this, so I can’t use it.”

These were the words Stefan had given him the night before leaving Bayern Street with Emilia.

Now, as the son-in-law of the Bayemurn family, not as the head of the Ipretz family, he asked him to treat himself as his stepfather and treat him comfortably.

Although the value of the name Stefan was not light enough to meet the request at once, it was still a bit unreasonable, but at this moment it was a very good excuse.

The corners of Stefan’s mouth, who had been attacked by the words he had uttered, quietly went up.

Originally, people are most embarrassed when they get caught in their own tricks, but instead of being offended, it warmed their hearts.

“Heh heh, I didn’t know that what I said would come back to me. Then can I ask you a favor?”

“Yes. Even Emilia was well acclaimed, so it’s not like she’d spit it out.”

“I look forward to it. That kid is pretty picky about tea.”

Emilia’s appetite is quite high thanks to her maid, Grita. Especially in the case of tea, it is unmatched.

If that kind of daughter is highly regarded, it can be said that her skills are at least equivalent to that.

After Stefan’s permission was granted, Ludwig left for a while.

A small smile appeared on Stefan’s lips as he stared at his back as he left the room.

‘It’s really strange that it doesn’t feel like an overstatement.’

When you reach such a status, it often happens that the other person comes out with a low profile, whether you like it or not.

Sometimes it’s a situation where you lower yourself too much to the point where the eyes of the viewer are frowned upon.

However, since he could understand the position of the opponent who had the head of the Weimurn family in front of him, Stefan was not the type to point out that. I just keep my mouth shut even though I feel uncomfortable with such an oversight.

How is that guy in that respect?

Even though each action is thoughtful, it is not considered excessive.

His personality is also his personality, but he is a man who has something like magic that makes others feel comfortable.

Perhaps the reason why his daughter fell out was because of this reason.

“Sorry for the delay. Because there was some commotion… … .”

“Well? What a fuss?”

Not long after, Ludwig opened the door and returned with an embarrassing smile on his lips.

But more than that, the one word that gave Stefan a doubt was a commotion.

I don’t think that’s possible, but I wonder if the servants of the family have disrespected him. Stefan’s eyebrows twitched slightly.

“The woman who appears to be the head maid lit a torch, saying that a guest should not be entrusted with such a task. I was sweating the refusal.”

“You must be referring to Melissa. She deserves it.”

Stefan, who had been drawn to the rough situation, smiled in relief only then.

It was fortunate that at least there was nothing to blame the people under him.

He had the status of a prospective son-in-law, but he was also the person he cared about more than anyone else. If even a small misfortune had occurred, he would have stepped out immediately.

“Does Sir Stefan prefer tea?”

Ludwig, who was brewing tea with the warm water he had prepared, lightly met his eyes and asked a question.

Stefan realized right away that he had something to say, so he thought it would be a good idea to open the conversation with a light topic.

Even if you were Stefan, it would be difficult to throw up a heavy topic in the middle of no conversation.

“To be honest, I don’t like it very much. If it wasn’t for my wife, I probably wouldn’t have had a chance to drink in my whole life.”

Although he is living a peaceful life now, he was once a man who was said to be a brave warrior on the battlefield.

It means that he was a man who was more suited to alcohol than cars, swords rather than books, and armor rather than formal clothes.

However, a lot of changes came to him after he met his lifelong partner. Typical examples would be taste and personality.

“It means that married couples look alike.”

“I didn’t believe it at first either, but it turned out that way. Haven’t you ever been like that?”

“It doesn’t seem like there yet. However, there have been times where I have felt that we are uncannily similar to each other.”

“It is a good sign. It must mean that the sum is well matched.”

Even as he said that, there was a small shadow on Stefan’s face.

That must be the reason why he came to me.

Ludwig remained silent for a moment, leaving the air engulfed in silence as it was.

It was under the judgment that it would not be a good situation for Stefan to speak out even if he talked too much, so it would be better to moderate the number of words at this point.

“How long have you been with your daughter?”

“If you include the days we spent as friends, I think it would be roughly a year.”

“is it. It’s already been a year.”

Stefan smiled wryly, realizing that the expression “already” didn’t suit him even after he had spat out the words.

It was to the point where I felt as if 10 years had passed, not just a year, if I looked at my daughter, who had changed so much after being influenced by him.

It was surprising from the fact that there is a being that can change one person this much in just one year.

His old age also came from there.

“I will always be grateful to you. Because you brought a child who was always locked up in a cage out of it.”


Ludwig’s eyebrows twitched at the words that were rather dull to be in between.

“Speaking of a cage… Are you talking about the Bayern family?”

It is not always a happy thing to carry a prestigious family on your back.

There are not a few young people who sometimes live under the weight of that prestige, tied to the name of their family rather than their own.

Ludwig knew that too, but he thought it wouldn’t work, at least for a confident woman named Emilia.

However, when Stefan, the pillar of the Bayemurn family and her father, uttered those words, I felt that I could not pass them off.

That is why, uncharacteristically, he did not try to determine the meaning of the words of others himself, but immediately asked for his true intentions.

“Well. I don’t know either.”

“… … .”

Stefan gives a mysterious answer that is neither positive nor negative.

However, Ludwig shut his mouth when he saw the bitter smile on his lips.

He has been watching over a girl named Emilia for a long time more than anyone else.

That’s why it may be that you feel a sense of self-help about yourself, who can only answer like this.

How sad it is for a father to have to answer ‘I don’t know’ to a question about his daughter.

“When he was young, he was no different from other people. He wasn’t the kind of kid who clung to his father’s arms, but he was always a kid who never lost his smile and always brightened up those around him.”

To express it in the past tense would mean that a change had come to such Emilia.

Ludwig remained silent and waited for Stefan’s words to follow.

“But at some point, dark clouds hung over him. It had never been shown to me or Yulia in action, but it was clear that something had happened just by pretending.”

“You mean it’s not just speculation.”

“right. It wasn’t that his behavior had become strange, but he felt like he was protecting himself with a hard shell. Not only me, but also my wife and some servants around me felt a sense of incongruity and rushed to tell me.”

If everyone around you felt a sense of incongruity, it must have meant that something had happened.

When Ludwig asked if anything had happened to Emilia in the meantime, Stefan shook his head slightly.

“Unfortunately, there was none. The only thing I remember is visiting the temple of Goddess Hypresia.”


Among the things that happened in the meantime, if it belonged to the most extraordinary axis, it seemed that there was no need to hear about the rest.

‘It’s definitely worth saying that there’s no corner.’

It is Ludwig who knows the details of the story revealed in the original work.

The fact that even he can’t guess means that it is so much hidden in a veil.

His eyes narrowed.

“I don’t know if I didn’t confuse my mind for nothing.”

Meanwhile, Stefan, who was watching this, opened his mouth with a bitter smile still on his lips.

Sometimes it’s better to hide the dark past, or to know it a little later.

However, it was a story he brought out with confidence in the image he showed to his daughter and other members of the Bayemurn family over the course of a year.

At least, I thought that this man would not turn a blind eye to his daughter, even if the appearance of his daughter on the outside and the figure hidden behind it were different from what he had imagined.

And as if in return for Stefan’s trust, the words that leaked out of Ludwig’s mouth were very manly.

“no. Rather, I should be grateful. If Emilia had something she wanted to hide even from her family, and if it still remains unresolved, isn’t it time for me to help her?”

It’s a cool word to scratch a really itchy place.

To say it simply because he didn’t want to be seen as disrespectful, it contained a different weight from the other light-mouthed family heads Stefan had met so far.

“It’s not that different from what I said. As the child changes because of you, there will be side effects to him someday. The more people who find a ray of light in a dirt pit and come out into the world, the more they hang on to that light.”

Ludwig guessed the meaning contained in it and nodded firmly.

I hope that doesn’t happen, but if there is one, there will always be one.

“Even if that happens, please don’t throw that child away. This is a request as a father who has never done anything for you.”

Ludwig’s head silently nodded from top to bottom.

Then, at the end of his reply that he would engrave it deep in his heart, the bitter smile that Stefan drew on his lips disappeared before he knew it.
