I Corrupted The Good Male Protagonist - Chapter 21
d as soon as I saw the signature on the envelope.
When I opened the envelope carefully and looked into the letter paper, a short phrase caught my eye.
If you’re still willing to attend the party with me, I’ll pick you up tomorrow.]
Why is his handwriting so neat? It’s as if it was written inside an invisible square.
My heart pounded. I don’t know if I should look forward to it. I listened to Lynette, who continued without knowing if I had to make up my mind.
“Lord Magnus asked me to deliver it to you. I heard that you told him that I was nice to you. He came to see me in person and asked me if I could meet you. Of course, I did. How can I refuse when a handsome, gentleman comes in with his head down first?”
I can’t believe that I had such a deep significance to sister! I didn’t know!
Ack, I was so moved that the word popped out of my mouth. I shouldn’t have called her the villain sister in my mind all the time.
Sister’s face suddenly turned white.
“Wha- wh-what did you just say?! Say it again! Right now!”
She got up all of a sudden. I faltered because I was about to be caught.
“I-I said, sister.”
My sister opened and closed her lips, and tears welled up.
“Oh, my God. I almost had a heart attack. I was so shocked as if my chest stopped and my skull was falling apart! Anastasia, can you still call me that?”
“It’s not difficult, but it’s…”
I couldn’t answer in advance. Lynette sat on the sofa on the road.
“Yes. We haven’t had a lot of interactions yet for me to hear Anastasia call me sister. So let’s confide in each other from now on. Anastasia, I’m very coveted with your face.”
“I can see that.”
I think when I die, she’ll open the coffin and rip off the skin on my face.
“And then…I like beautiful people. Of course, I’m very beautiful myself, but I don’t have a hobby of looking at the mirror all day. I can’t even hold yourself together, can I? One more thing: I’ve been paying particular attention to Lord Magnus for a long time, but I became bored because he’s a neat and proper human? But you suddenly appeared in front of me! Anastasia, I really want that piece of your hair on the couch, can I have it?”
I felt madness in her eyes looking at me. I suddenly felt curious.
“I have a question.”
“Ask whatever you want.”
Sister readily allowed me to feel good. I asked a question straight away.
“What kind of person does sister think Adele is?”
When I called sister again to hear her answer smoothly, Lynette was on the verge of fainting.
She managed to hold onto reason and coughed in vain.
“A noble of the nobility, a nobleman without any imperfection. Isn’t he a greedy man who has everything in his power to buy up the land of the Empire, a genius worthy of admiration, and doesn’t have a fault in his appearance? He’s so noble on that subject that everyone is equal. But it’s hard to get close to him. He shows the same attitude to everyone and that also means that no one is special to him.”
Lynette had an accurate grasp of Adele Magnus.
A kind person to everyone.
But a man who doesn’t show particular interest to anyone.
“Yes, I suppose so.”
“But I thought you’d be different. I heard you always enjoyed going out with Lord Magnus alone. When other young people asked him what he thought of you, he also said you were ‘precious.’”
That’s ridiculous. I denied it.
“Adele was just nice to me because my father was a close friend of Duke Magnus.”
Then the villain sister widened her eyes.
“Hmmm? You don’t understand? Apparently, that’s not how Lord Magnus looks?”
Ah! No! Don’t make my heart flutter!
I gulped down black tea to regain my composure. My tongue tingled because of the hot tea water, but I ignored it and just gulped it down.
I sacrificed a part of my body, and now I’m a little distracted.
The villain sister suddenly looked at me with sparkling eyes as I wiped my mouth with a clean napkin.
“Anastasia, I just got an interesting idea.”
Sister smiled at me.
“Make sure you come to the party tomorrow. Let’s see what Lord Magnus thinks of you. I’ll get a small return, so don’t worry. Huah, a stuffed couple…such fine specimen…That doesn’t sound too bad.”
What did she just say?
For some reason, I felt a chill run down my spine. Sister made a terrible noise and pretended not to notice.
“I’ve already given you the letter, so I’m going back. See you tomorrow, my pretty Anastasia. Oh, and I’d like you to wear a black dress.”
It was definitely a time to argue, but I was taken aback by what she said.
“Did Adele ask you to tell me to dress like that?”
The villain sister raised her eyes as if she were talking about a dog.
“No? It’s purely just my preference. “
“…..Then please be on your way.”
Even in this situation, I couldn’t say no to her, I thought she was very scary.
The next day, I was deeply troubled in front of two dresses.
One was a sky blue dress with beautiful hydrangea patterns, and the other was a black dress with a colorful butterfly brooch.
Both were light and fluttering, so I thought it would be easy to move in them.
However, the blue dress gave off a girly atmosphere, while the black dress looked more mature.
Irina hinted at me in conflict.
“What kind of dress would you like to wear, Miss?”
I slowly examined the two dresses and finally chose a black one.
“I’ll go with this.”
Villain sis, I listen to you very well. Why don’t you think about it again?
It didn’t take long to prepare because it wasn’t a ball. I wore the dress and my hair was straightened out like usual.
Irina also put a butterfly-shaped pin on his head, and there were more than six butterflies on my dress.
Still, Irina’s expression of satisfaction did not look bad.
It was time to go.
As I was nervously fiddling with my winding silver hair, Irina looked outside nervously.
Then, at the moment, Irina’s face turned red.
“Lord Magnus is here.”
I went straight down the stairs. I took a deep breath and examined his attire. I closed my eyes, then opened it again.
Then I took a step out of the door and a man like a noble birch* greeted me.
(t/n: idk why she always describes him like a birch tree!)
“Hello, Anastasia. Thank you for allowing me to accompany you to the party.”
Wow, seriously. Wow….
His hair has the same color as the golden burning sun. His clear eyes and a polite smile caught my eye.
He seemed to have grown a little from before. His body, which had maintained its firmness through steady training, was rather sensational.
It’s probably because he rarely loosens even a button, but his clothes seem quite tight because of his muscles.
How can neatness and sexiness coexist? What are you…?
He was wearing a dark black suit like me. The shirt was black as night.
I managed to come to my senses after running my impure eyes in the outline of his slightly tight clothing line.
This is definitely a couple of looks!
All right, sister!
After I die, you can take the skin off my face!
“How are you?
Adele responded as usual when I asked him after trying to clear up her nervousness.
“Thanks for your concern.”
“You didn’t have to come.”
“You wanted to go to the party. Besides you haven’t gotten close enough to other nobles yet, so you’d be safer with me.”
This man, as usual, was the sweet Adele.
This must be his fake self.
“Anastasia, you don’t look happy.”
I shook my head. Adele came all the way here to keep his promise with me anyway.
“It’s nothing. Let’s go.”
Adele helped me get on the carriage. Adele came up and closed the door when I sat down. Then he also sat down.
I suddenly felt a lump in my chest. Adele spoke calmly as the carriage departed.
“This party may be a little noisy. It’s a place where no adult aristocrats attend, so there aren’t many aristocrats who can do anything rude. Furthermore, since it is a feast where animals are freed and bullied, there are disputes over how much is ethically appropriate.”
But none of Adele’s explanations came to my ears.
My heart was beating like crazy. It’s like it would suddenly pop out of my body.
As I squeezed my voice with all my might, Adele answered innocently.
I felt dizzy because of the warmth I felt right next to me.
“Why are you sitting …, no, sit down, ah.”
What’s with me?! Adele looked at me with an innocent look as if he doesn’t understand what’s happening to me.
“Didn’t we sit like this often before?”
“That’s true, but…”
What am I supposed to do? I can’t do this. I like him too much.
“If you’re uncomfortable, I’ll move.
I raised my head at Adele’s words.
“No! Don’t do that!”
Even his red eyes were clearly visible with our distance. It was embarrassing! And awkward.
But Adele was the first one to approach me.
I murmured with a low voice.
“You can just stay.”
Adele smiled satisfactorily.
Since then, we have not exchanged any conversations on the way to our destination.
Nevertheless, I was so conscious of Adele that I couldn’t calm down.
I used to feel comfortable with Adele. I wasn’t this nervous.
Adele, whom I’ve not met in a week, was so wonderful.
The fact that he was the same age as I was unbelievable. He looks so manly.
He was still kind and very friendly, but it felt a little different from before.
Is this my imagination?
That day, Adele clearly said I was no different from anyone else.
But now he sat next to me and didn’t mind touching me.
This has never happened before. I was confused.
