r>Thanks to this, her cheeks seem to have regained some of their complexion.
Even so, she was absent-minded as though she was still in a dream.
The girl said in a muffled voice, “I was lost in the woods ……
and I saw a mansion in the distance ……
and I tried to make my way there …….”
“It seems you were on the brink of exhaustion.
But well, you've achieved your goal.
This is the mansion.”
The only people that visited this mansion were the mailman, children trying out their luck, or people who have lost their way.
She seemed to be the latter.
Allen did not tell her about the soldier.
He knew it would only frighten her unnecessarily.
Allen held up the newspaper to the girl, who was still in a daze.
“Welcome for the time being.
Miss Charlotte Evans?”
Upon seeing the newspaper, blood drained from the girl-Charlotte's face.
There was no doubt that it was her in the sketch drawn in the newspaper.
The fiancée of the second prince of the neighboring kingdom of Neils…
the vicious lady that caused the nation to be at loss.
She was the eldest daughter of the Duke of Evans, Charlotte.
“Oh, it's all right.
No need to be alarmed.”
Allen said in a nonchalant manner as he folded the newspaper.
Then, with light steps, he approached Charlotte.
She shrunk back in caution, but Allen was unconcerned.
“I was once betrayed by someone I believed to be my trusted friend.
Since then, I've learned to discern if someone is lying.”
He looked into Charlotte's eyes.
In those anxious blue eyes of hers …
there was no lie.
“You are innocent.
I know it.”
Charlotte was lost for words.
Her eyes widened and tears gradually welled up in them.
It broke Allen's heart.
What's wrong, are you hurting somewhere?”
“For the first time…”
Charlotte's tears fell in droplets onto the leather sofa.
She covered her face in the fit of her sobs, her words coming out in broken bursts.
“For the first time, there is someone who believes in me…!”
And the final chapter for today is done.
Now we are back on schedule and will post a chapter a day till Sunday like we announced
