order to seem as good as possible, she modified her voice.

“I expect somewhere.”

“Expect?”

With a contorted look, the lifted brow turned toward Anita.

“When precisely?”

“Maybe… today.”

‘I believed Lancelot and Jill might provide me a respectable position.’ Anita intended to return to the labor station as quickly as possible after talking to Lancelot.

“Come along.”

Naturally, due to Lancelot’s nature, he will attempt to take her to Edenbahir immediately.

‘Do you propose that we go together without any consideration?’ Again, the tip of Anita’s nose tingled with appreciation.

Anita cannot, however, weep ugly twice.
Anita shook her head forcefully.

“No.
Simply coming to see your face in this state is sufficient.
I feel nice too.”

“Tell me how and what is sufficient.”

His creased forehead formed a small dip.
It was a look of discontent.

However, it was appropriate to decline Lancelot’s assistance in secret.

It was Lancelot… he was in a marriageable age and his track record was clean without any scandal.

In the meanwhile, if reports had circulated that Anita was being cared for in the estate, an uncomfortable scenario might have developed.
She did not want Lancelot to become the subject of an indecent rumor.

“It does not seem that I have squandered more than twenty years.
I have a buddy who really cares.
I won’t give up and still be courageous.”

“What are your thoughts?”

“Mister Vlad helped me get employment.”

Lancelot’s eyes contracted slightly.
He extended his hand with a graceful move that did not even seem forced.

“Can I verify the nature of the position?”

After a moment of uncertainty, she handed over the chief’s business card, which was severely crumpled.

Lancelot despised Vlad.
In retrospect, Vlad was prominent, but Lancelot is still hesitant. 

He flipped through the card and then laughed softly.

“It’s a maid.”

The business card she gave him vanished inside the jacket pocket of Lancelot.

“Not even a caretaker… but a maid.”

Anita didn’t even care what job it was at this point.

“If I am able to work, I have no intention of concealing it.”

Anita suddenly misplaced the business card, but it was not an issue since she had remembered the lot number and phone number.

“Anita Volloni.
What would you do in my position?”

Anita calmly regarded him while wondering what he meant.

Lancelot started to undo the firmly knotted sleeves, as though his clothes were quite stifling.

“You said that I was your best buddy in life.
Except for Claunia.”

“Have I said that?”

“It means the same thing… don’t swerve the conversation.”

The words that he said could not have been a lie. I must have gone insane without my knowledge.
Anita’s cheeks became flushed with shame.

“It’s not that dissimilar to my homeland.
If you were not significant to me, I would not have traveled to this location at this hour.”

Anita, who had known Lancelot for a long time, found this comment quite shocking.

Lancelot looks to be a guy of action more than words.

In particular, spoken phrases were avoided as they vanished.
His tongue was mostly used for reproof, slander, advice, and information sharing.

To assert that Lancelot found her significant? I was touched and incredulous, so I posed the question with an idiotic look.

“Am I one of your closest companions?”

“Are you going to assert it’s impossible?”

She was reprimanded by the frigid stare on her face, which did not produce any silly sounds.

“It’s not impossible.”

After three paces, Lancelot addressed her with his emerald gaze.

“If you weren’t, you wouldn’t regard me as just callous and inept.”

Straight steps by Lancelot passed Anita and halted at the door.
And he proclaimed in a commanding tone that he would not tolerate any more complaints.

“I will assist you, Ms.
Volloni.
Thus, the time I’ve spent with you will not have been wasted.”

“Lancelot.”

“Is it challenging? Then allow me to assist you to think more easily.
Do not consider your own self.
Consider just me and Claunia.”

An icy face reflected back at Anita.

“In this region, the Duke of Edenbahir and the head of Volloni house are recognized business partners.
If you leave your home with your biological father absent and your possessions confiscated.
How will an individual see Edenbahir?”

The collapse of Volloni and the demise of the patriarch.
An investor and partner, Edenbahir, claims to recognize the kid that was left alone.

What Lancelot intended to convey was quite plain.

From Edenbahir’s perspective, pretending not to know her creates the ideal environment for a misunderstanding.

“I will wait for you downstairs.”

He immediately turned his back and exited the room.
