Lelia recalled the last time she saw Kalix.
At the time, Kalix suddenly said, “You like me.”
How the hell did he get that misunderstanding? She couldn’t understand it.
Of course, she does like Kalix, but it was a feeling as a friend.
Even that was not enough, Kalix suddenly kissed her that day and disappeared like he was running away.
[I’m going crazy.]
When she remembered what happened at that time, her mind became blank and dizzy.
When she recalled the touch upon her lips, she felt as if she had eaten a bitter fruit.
“What the hell were you really thinking about?”
In fact, she should have gone to Kalix right away to clear up the misunderstanding and give him medicine…
She postponed it because she was embarrassed to see his face again, but after that, she was distracted by Oscar and Romeo.
And after that, she was checking on her grandmother’s condition, which improved thanks to Griffith.
However, starting a few days ago, Lelia tried visiting Kalix from time to time. To give him the completed medicine as soon as possible.
In fact, solving the misunderstanding was also important, but it was even more urgent to treat Kalix’s eyes.
However, because Kalix was avoiding her like this, she was not running into him at all.
[I can’t leave the medication in the room.]
She has to make sure that he takes the medicine herself.
If the bottle breaks and Kalix can’t take it… then she has to make the medicine again.
Then she would need a ‘love kiss decision’ again.
Lelia closed her eyes and shook her head firmly.
It should never be allowed to happen.
Lelia put the bottle back in her pocket like a treasure, and headed to Kalix’s room.
She visited every morning or late afternoon, but today she chose night time on purpose.
[But I feel like he is still sleeping in his room.]
Standing at the door to Kalix’s room, Lelia looked around for a moment.
There were no servants passing by because it was late. It was not until she arrived this late at night that she became worried that she might be misunderstood.
After confirming that no one was there, Lelia slowly opened the door and went in. She didn’t knock on purpose.
It was dark and quiet in the room.
She could only hear the sound of grasshoppers out of the open window.
[Is he sleeping? Or is he not in the room?]
Lelia carefully walked past the drawing room towards the bedroom.
On the bed, a bulky figure was visible. He seemed to be sleeping.
[I’d rather feed him when he is asleep.]
Come to think of it, it wasn’t a bad idea. There was no warning that it shouldn’t be drunk when asleep.
Lelia walked a little slower toward the bed, thinking it was an opportunity.
When she gently grabbed the blanket that covered his head and slowly pulled it down.
It happened in an instant.
She flipped over without a blink.
When she came to her senses, she was stuck on the bed.
It was only then that Lelia realized that it was a pillow, not Kalix, that was under the blanket.
She didn’t know where he came from, but Kalix appeared behind her back and pushed her onto the bed.
She was so surprised that her heart was about to pop out of her mouth.
Kalix’s face appeared out of the corner of her eyes. He glared at Lelia with angry eyes.
It also felt like an animal that had lost its reason.
Lelia twisted her body, swallowing her fear.
However, she could not escape because Kalix grabbed Lelya’s wrists and pressed them down tightly.
Her legs were pinned so that she could not struggle.
[Wait, the way you’re doing it is…]
Kalix was in such a position. She felt like a criminal who was subdued while committing a crime.
As he protested with his eyes, Kalix asked in a low voice.
“You’re coming to me again at this hour? And to the bed?
“Are you going to attack me again? Really?”
“You perv. Who taught you to do this? Are you a man like that?”
She didn’t know where to start or how to explain it. She felt like she was about to see a huge thread tangled beyond her control.
“Sir Kalix, let me tell you my story first…”
“What story? What are you gonna do to me?”
“Um, can you release me for now?”
At Lelia’s request, Kalix looked at her suspiciously.
Lelia was confused by the look. When she was in the capital, Ruth used to look at her like that…
Kalix squinted his eyes and soon rose. Lelia groaned and slowly lifted herself up.
Then she took the medicine bottle out of her pocket first.
Kalix looked at Lelia with his eyes full of vigilance and made a grimace.
“This is to cure Sir Kalix…”
“Is it some kind of trick? You’re a piece of crap, you’re gonna feed me that and you’re gonna attack me?”
Lelia bit her lips tightly. She just wanted to slap him on the back of the head like she did when she was a kid…
She wanted to swear at him for being an idiot…
Barely suppressing the urge, Lelia opened her mouth with the hope that he will understand if she explains it step by step.
“It’s a medicine that can cure your eyes.”
Kalix’s eyebrows raised at the unexpected remark. But it was still a suspicious look.
“I’m telling you, how hard I tried to make this medicine… you don’t know the hardships I’ve been through. It’s a medicine that I made to fix Sir Kalix. Trust me.”
“… How did you know the condition of my eyes last time?”
He seems to be referring to the fact that she noticed his left eye as soon as he arrived at the estate.
Lelia hesitated and said, “I could just tell.”
Kalix’s eyes shook at the frank words.
Without noticing it, Lelia appealed with emotion. It was hard to say it step by step because she was in a hurry.
“Can’t you just trust me once and take this medicine?”
“What if it’s an anaesthetic?”
“No, what the hell am I going to do by feeding you that?”
“… You’ll get my body.”
“Not at all! I don’t want to have your body at all.”
“You’re lying. You’re a pervert who looks at me and you’re greedy…”
“You attacked me the other day, didn’t you?”
In the end, Lelia couldn’t hold it in and opened her mouth due to Kalix’s reluctance.
“Then why did you come to me and kiss me? I just kissed you lightly and ran away, but Sir Kalix…!”
Something was off when she said it. Lelia crumpled her face and closed her mouth.
She didn’t notice that Kalix’s face turned red because the room was dark.
Kalix caught his breath for a moment and strode up.
“Fine, anaesthetic pills or whatever. I wanted to check it out. Whether it’s possible between men.”
The medicine bottle in Lelia’s hand quickly moved to his hand.
Kalix, who stole the medicine like he was robbing her, opened the lid of the bottle and poured it right into his mouth.
[Is it bitter?]
Kalix, who gulped down the liquid, stared at her with a big frown.
Then he exhaled loudly waiting for the medicine to work. He seemed to really believe that Lelia had brought medicine like anaesthetic pills.
But soon after…
Kalix, who uttered a short sound, sat there. With his hands buried in his face, he began to groan painfully.
“Ka- Sir Kalix?”
[Is the medicine wrong? That can’t be true.]
Lelia sat in front of Kalix with anxiety.
He suffered as if he had a seizure.
“Look at me, look at me. Kalix! Kalix!
Lelia removed Kalix’s hand and looked into his eyes.
Kalix’s pupils tightened as he raised his head. There was a strange reaction, speeding up the release.
Strange eyes mixed with colors rose as if they were creating waves.
Lelia grabbed Kalix’s gasping face and began to calm him down.
She was nervous because she couldn’t tell whether it was the treatment process or a side effect. She felt like a fool for making him take the medicine in a hurry.
Lelia tried calming him down, not conscious of the tears on her cheeks, muttering only his name.
After a while, when she came to her senses, she was crying, and hugging Kalix’s face.
Kalix’s body, which had been flinching like a seizure, slowly calmed down. Lelia slowly fell off him.
And when she checked his face…
She could instinctively tell that Kalix’s left eye had returned to normal.
His eyes were staring clearly at Lelia.
Tears of relief poured down as she felt relieved.
And Kalix looked at her in bewilderment at what had happened in an instant.
Lelia’s appearance overlapped with someone he knew as a child.
“Kalix, look me in the eye.”
“What, what are you doing?”
One day during his childhood, Leo suddenly held Kalix’s cheek with both hands and pushed his face in.
Kalix tried to push Leo away, loathing his unknown embarrassing behavior.
But Leo was persistent.
“Look at me clearly.”
“I’m watching. Why!”
It felt strange to make eye contact up close.
‘Are you crazy because I praised you for being a captain?’ Kalix thought as he looked Leo in the eye with a big frown.
Come to think of it, what a pretty eye color.
By the time he had that strange thought, Leo said, “My face… Remember it clearly, Kalix.”
“What are you talking about?”
“You’ll be able to recall this memory when you miss me.”
“Did you take your meds?”
“Hold on! Hold on! Do as you are told!”
At his insistence, Kalix finally looked Leo in the eye.
For a very close and slow time.
For a very long time…
Leo’s eyes, nose, mouth, eyes, everything in his eyes.
“Are you all right, Sir Kalix?”
Kalix, who belatedly escaped from his childhood memories, blinked slowly.
In front of him was Lelia, who looked very much like Leo.
His dark left eye could see everything clearly…
