I looked at Reneben happily and patted him on the back. I walked out of my room with renewed spirit.
When I arrived at the office, I felt despair looking at the piles of documents. I slowly picked up my pen and immersed myself into work.
After working for a while, I turned my head to work out the stiffness. It was then that I saw Jessie, one of the few people with blonde hair.
I told her to come and help with Reneben’s share of the work.
Reneben knew that I did not change my clothes in the morning even if I came into the office. However, Jessie did not. She had her mouth opened in amazement, seeing me wearing my nightgown in my office.
Hi everybody, just wanted to do a quick update. My dog injured himself last week while trying to chase after a bunny. He basically ruptured his disc and had to undergo surgery. He’s doing fine now and prognosis is good.
That being said, the next few weeks I’m not going to be able to update as often. I have to spend time trying to help my dog heal. I have to help him with physical therapy exercises and also express his bladder until he regains strength in his hind legs. If all goes well, hopefully he’ll recover quickly.
If not the prince, then the duke would be helpful in the plan against the nobles.
‘Plus, he’s also one of the fishes.’
And I thought it was perfect that the duke felt the pressure from the sins of his father.
“It’s alright, but…”
The taste of the tea from earlier continued to linger in my mouth.
The reason why the duke came to see me was to reduce the damages from the demons.
I leaned back slightly on the sofa and stretched my legs out. I felt comfortable that I wanted to take a nap. Maybe I slept wrong since my neck felt stiff. I tilted my head a bit. I looked as comfortable as I could but not to the extent of disrespect.
The hesitation disappeared from the duke’s face and he answered, “It will be an honor to be the partner of the saintess.”
