The Villain Wants to Live Quietly chapter 19

Chapter 3. Different Dreams (3)

I was embarrassed by Sophia’s behavior in my arms, but I was able to regain my composure.

It’s the first time I’ve seen it in about a year, so it’s worth it. Because he was a child who was strangely childish.

There is no big change in height, but the overall atmosphere seems to have become a full-fledged young lady.

Maybe it’s because he’s a kid I’ve seen since I was little, but I was more impressed.

As he stroked her light purple hair, Sofia dug deeper into his arms.

It’s not good to be hugged in the arms of an outsider… I’ll have to say something later.

I don’t think I would do this to anyone because I was a child who was secretly shy.

“Sophia, now you have to leave and say hello to my friend.”

“Ah, yes. I’m sorry, brother.”

Sophia obediently obeyed my words as I gently grabbed both of her arms and spoke to her in a soothing way.

The violets you always wore in your hair are still the same. I feel it every time I see it, but it went very well with her light purple hair.

Leaving behind my comments, Sophia slipped away, raised her voice loudly, and politely greeted Emilia, albeit belatedly.

“It is an honor to meet you, Princess of Bayemurn. I have heard the words well.”

“Nice to meet you, Princess Este. I apologize for not being dressed to greet you.”

Well? It’s true that I told Emilia about Sophia, but the opposite wouldn’t have happened.

Did you even hear from your father? Sophia hadn’t visited our mansion since meeting Emilia.

‘I’ve heard a lot of rumors, I guess.’

Well, unlike me, Emilia’s reputation should be known to other families.

In addition, the value of the name of the family on his back is enormous. It wouldn’t be too much trouble if Sophia had heard her name in passing.

Anyway, I was a little worried that Emilia might have been angry.

Even the lady-in-waiting refused to see others watching her practice, but a disturber suddenly appeared.

I wouldn’t be angry with the other party, but I was worried that I might feel uncomfortable implicitly.


“Yes, Emilia.”

“Let’s finish here for today and go back.”

Fortunately, I didn’t feel any discomfort from the way she talked to me.

Maybe I just didn’t notice because I wasn’t aware of it, but at least it didn’t look like I was forced to talk while hiding my feelings.

“Yes, let’s go. Shall we take a look at the flowers on the way?”

“Would it be okay? Lord Este will be waiting for you… … .”

Oh, I didn’t think of that.

Sophia’s arrival must mean that her father, Sir Adolf, has also arrived.

He was probably talking to his father and mother in the drawing room. Well, then I guess we should hurry up a bit.

“It will be fine, brother.”


“Because my father sent me to get some fresh air with my older brother. There is plenty of time for flower viewing.”

Sir Adolf would have said something like that. I wonder if it’s a consideration that means to share even if it’s a story that I haven’t been able to do with me again.

Anyway, thank you. It was clear that Emilia would wake up if she went into the drawing room where the heads of the two families were.

In that case, it would be better for the three of them to talk outside and promote friendship. There are places to sit in the garden, so you don’t have to stand and talk. the problem is… … .

“Wouldn’t it be a little hard to walk around in this state?”

It was that Emilia’s and I’s clothes weren’t suitable for talking with others.

Of course, I’m close to Sophia, so even if I had a conversation in comfortable clothes, neither she nor I could be concerned about anything.

However, it was very uncomfortable to have a conversation with Emilia, who was meeting for the first time, dressed similarly.

Maybe I should change my clothes and come back.

“I’m fine.”

“Yes? but… … .”

However, as if to put an end to my concerns, Emilia smiled and shrugged.

“Of course, if Princess Este is okay with it. You can’t be dressed like this in front of guests without permission.”

In other words, he meant that he would like to walk in the garden as it is, if only Sofia would allow it.

Surprisingly, Emilia doesn’t seem to care too much about this.

I’ve lived here for 12 years, but I’m still stuck with the notions of the world I used to live in, so I just don’t care. I thought she would definitely pay a lot of attention to her attire.

“I don’t care either, brother. Of course, clothes are important, but they do not represent the essence of a person.”

“That’s right.”

It’s amazing to see such a philosophical point of view on just one piece of clothing… Anyway, as long as I like the two of them, I nodded because it didn’t matter.

When I stretched out my hand to ask for the wooden sword, Emilia refused, saying that she couldn’t leave her luggage.

This kind of honesty is rather like Emilia. However, I didn’t ask for it without much thought, so I brought a wooden sword and put it in my arms.

“Because Emilia is also a guest to me. Please leave this much to me.”

Then, with a slight wink, he pointed towards Sophia.

I mean, let’s go and talk.

It wouldn’t be easy to have a conversation because it’s an invitation screen, but I was sure that if we stood in the back and lightened up the atmosphere, the two would communicate well.

Emilia, who seemed to understand my meaning, smiled and approached Sofia. The light purple hair and pale blonde hair fluttering in the wind looked like a painting.

To be able to see such a sight, I am very fortunate.

“Oh, by any chance, does the Princess of Bayemurn know?”

Sophia, who had been chatting with Emilia while examining the flowers in the garden one by one, clapped her palms and opened her mouth excitedly.

Are you going to reveal even the dark history about me? If so, I want to stop it right now.

“What do you mean?”

“There are also Woluhwa in the flower bed that my brother grows. If the princess sees it, she will be very surprised.”

Oh, that must have been the story.

Not many people know the secret of my possession of the Walloo Flower, and Sophia was one of them.

Because the last time we met, I proudly told you.

But it’s surprising. I never thought that Sophia would inform Emilia of the invitation screen about it.

Of course, it doesn’t matter much, but I didn’t know that the heavy-mouthed Sophia would say it herself.

Did you feel closeness to Emilia that much? I’m not sure.

“ah… Well, in fact, that moonflower… … .”


Meanwhile, Emilia seemed reluctant to tell the truth to Sofia, who brought up the story of Walluhwa out of excitement.

That mindset is understandable. It must have been exciting to show it to Sophia, since it was a mysterious flower, but Emilia was the person who received the flower.

It would be impossible due to Emilia’s personality to say ‘I have that flower’ with my own mouth. There’s nothing wrong with it, but the atmosphere will be weird.

I guess I’ll have to step in here.


“Yes, brother.”

“I gave the moonflower as a gift to Emilia. It won’t be in the flower bed right now.”

As soon as he finished speaking, Sophia’s pupils widened.

A look as if he was told something he shouldn’t have heard. As if confirming the facts, Sofia looked at Emilia and me alternately.

Then, she looked at me and opened her mouth, as if she had noticed the truth in Emilia’s behavior of stealthily avoiding her gaze.

“The flower you cherished so much… … ?”

“Because we were friends.”

“Ha, but… … .”

She was more startled than I expected and couldn’t even speak.

It is true that the woluhwa is a rare flower, but is it such a surprise?

Or did I react this way because I was seen as such a materialistic person?

Before the question was even gone, Sophia soon smiled softly and changed her expression.

As if the gloomy face from before was a lie.

“If my brother was like that, there must have been a reason for everything. I was just a little surprised.”

Saying that, she fiddled with the violets in her hair.

This reminds me of the first time I put violets on Sophia’s hair. At that time, I was a little taller than my current waist.

At first, I was shy about wearing a flower in my hair, but when I put it on, saying it was my favorite flower, at some point, I wore it all the time.

Looking at that aspect, Sophia really followed me well. He was such an admirable child that I thought that if I had a younger sister, it would be nice to be like this.

“Princess Este seems to like violets.”

“Yeah. It’s my brother’s favorite flower, so I came to like it too.”

“Ludwig… You mean?”

I was watching the scene with a hearty smile, but somehow Emilia’s glare felt stinging.

What? Was there anything in the conversation we just had that would get me scolded?

It’s probably not because I like violets. If there was such a criminal law in the world, it was clear that I would not be able to sleep because of the unfairness.

“…Ludwig liked violets. It seems that Yueluhua doesn’t like it.”

“It can’t be. I tend to like anything as long as it is a flower.”

“Anything flower… okay.”

Instead of giving an explanation, it seems like they only dug a grave.

That would be the case, because Emilia’s eyes that were pouring down on me had gone from being a cat to being a tiger.

I want to run away right now. What the hell am I doing wrong?
