Duke, Please Stop Because it Hurts - Chapter 156
Marquis of Werner (2)
In contrast to Raven’s concerns, time had gone by smoothly right up to the day of the party itself.
“We were the ones who had been decorating it, but it’s so pretty, Madame!”
Lili, who was wrapping up on the skirt, expressed her admiration one after another. She had no idea that twinkling sparkles would be oozing from Molitia herself.
On the other side, Pillen’s hand, which was finishing up on her hair, suddenly fell off right after placing the jewelry for the last time. The Madame’s figure that was reflected in the mirror was akin to a fairy itself.
Starting from her neck, a thin cloth had wrapped around her shoulders as it fluttered. The shape of the cloth that wound up along her fine line had resembled that of a fairy’s wings.
The dress was incredibly similar to her silver hair as it unveiled her curvy figure. Some laces had also been added to her chest, which were suitably pinned onto her body using a soft frame, in order to prevent much of her skin from becoming too revealing.
It was a dress designed to appear tight, but Pillen showed her utmost support at that moment in time. She immediately changed that sentiment by adorning some accessories which fluttered down from her neck.
The gems had decorated her chest just like corsages blossoming right in the middle of her breastbone.
A simple and neat design. Those silver locks of hers that wreathed out on top of her was enough to generously unveil her allure.
Pillen had always been complaining about Lili’s excessive admiration, however she just couldn’t help but to share her own thoughts with others for today.
“I’m sure that no one else is as beautiful as Madame for today.”
At that glimmer of praise, Molitia placed her hand on her cheek. The maid had ground the dried roses and powdered them finely before dusted them softly across her cheeks.
“If I’m to be praised then, I’m certain that everything is all thanks to you.”
“What do you even mean? It’s definitely thanks to My Lady who has incredible taste in fashion. The more I’ve prepared, the more rewarding I could feel.”
Finally, Lili slipped the butterfly ornaments into her hair. It was a rare scene where she soon appeared to have settled down, fascinated by the silver flowers that had bloomed beautifully.
‘She’s my Madame yet she is extremely ravishing!’
Lili just couldn’t contain her satisfaction. She wanted to hold Her Lady’s hand while spreading rumors all around the neighborhood.
“Madame, please be careful of the cold at all times.”
As a finishing touch, Pillen then draped a shawl around her. Molitia smiled at the presence of the soft cloth that had enveloped her arms warmly—right from her shoulders.
When she opened the door of the dressing room after finishing up first, Raven, who was patiently waiting, turned his eyes. His eyes immediately widened for a moment—stiffly.
“Shall I call off my words and inform them that I’m no longer attending the party?”
“What do you mean?”
He slowly approached her puzzled self before embracing Molitia closely. The subtle scent of roses had tickled the tip of his nose.
“It is such a waste for me to show you to the others.”
The sheer skirt that fluttered from her waist had furtively revealed her silhouette whenever she moved her legs. It was a design with an image of a long stretch pair of legs.
There was no absolute way that a more beautiful person could gravitate to his eyes. Raven whispered softly all the while suppressing his jealousy that was just about to burst open.
“I just want to carry you to my room and have you all to myself.”
A hot waft of breath brushed against her exposed neck. Molitia, who was aware that his playful words were spoken rather half-heartedly, immediately blushed before pushing away his chest.
“I’ve already come all the way here. What are you even talking about? If we don’t go, the Marquis will be disappointed.”
“Okay then, I’ll leave you be—for now.”
Raven gracefully withdrew himself. He raised his hand, which was still fiddling along her waist, before touching under her ear.
“Instead, I will return back quickly after today, so that I can go and enjoy my vacation thoroughly. I want to spend the whole day with you alone—without leaving the room at all.”
A smile spread across Raven’s mouth as Molitia grumbled at the end of his unabashed appeal.
“Let us go, My Lady.”
Her hand then rested on top of his. The party was held at a separate annex of the mansion. Starting from those who had arrived beforehand, the carriages were already crowding at the door amidst those who had just reached on that day.
The party was truly utilizing the harsh weather. While the surroundings were carved in snow and ice, the chandelier had been embroidered in half using the special minerals that could only be found in this area.
The party was supposed to unravel the financial status of the said aristocrat. However, today’s party was so spectacular that it would absolutely offset the rumors of those financial difficulties.
