Sweetie, Sweetie, Sweetie - Chapter 5
Eugene was waiting for a good opportunity to approach Ludvina and ask her to find him another guardian. Fortunately, Ludvina showed great interest in the wound on his cheek.
“Did you see Dr. Tenon?”
“Yes, I used ice to relieve the swelling and applied an ointment. He said it would take a while for it to heal .”
Dr. Tenon explained that his skin was so sensitive and it was easy to bruise. Thus, by applying an effective ointment, the swelling would significantly reduce in a matter of hours.
“It is incredibly rude to treat someone in this manner, especially someone who is going to become a family member. Eryl, go find Dr. Tenon and tell him to bring some holy water. I need it right now.”
The attendant maid who was waiting for Ludvina’s order left the drawing-room. Ludvina looked at Eugene who took a deep breath, and said, “Holy water will remove the bruises, Baron. “
“Thank you, godmother.”
“I’m so glad you woke up safely. I heard that you are not hurt anywhere. Is there any inconvenience? Anything else you need?”
The atmosphere warmed up with the exchange of some gentle and friendly words. Eugene wanted to ask her right away for a good guardian when she asked if he needed anything, but he held it in.
Eugene, who grew up as the youngest child in a big family, was quite sensible, apart from being loved by everyone. When he* was in the first year of middle school, his father was greatly deceived by his uncle, and his family scattered after his father’s business collapsed.
[Editor’s note: Here, the modern world Eugene is thinking about his previous life]
Therefore, he knew it was necessary to lay the groundwork first rather than straightforwardly stating his point.
“As you may have heard from Dr. Tenon, I have lost my memory.”
“Yes, I heard.”
“But I’m aware of what I must do. Even if I don’t remember anything, my responsibility remains.”
Eugene did not bring up the subject of marriage in front of Ludvina’s piercing gaze. Instead, he assured her that he was aware of his responsibility.
Eugene was not one of these people. He didn’t know anything about the aristocracy. Still, he had the head to figure out the current situation. Because of the marriage premise, Baron Linweisen was able to stay in Heinskan Castle and live in a large detached house.
Even if he didn’t remember anything, he had to marry. He had his own real job to do, of course, but he couldn’t ignore the marriage either.
Eugene could tell Ludvina was happy because she had her eyes slightly closed.
“A nobleman must carry out his responsibilities.”
Eugene responded as if he was having an interview with a major professor but now it was time to get down to work.
“Don’t worry about getting married. If you need anything else, just let me know.”
“Actually… I want to get help from the godmother.”
“What help do you need?”
“I hope that things like this don’t happen again but I am… I don’t remember, but I’ve noticed that my relatives are not good people.”
Eugene’s voice was powerful and he spoke firmly. His expression wasn’t the same and it caught Ludvina’s eye.
Eugene, whom Ludvina knew, had always bowed his head without being able to look at her properly. His voice was always low and shaky, and he couldn’t finish his sentences properly.
Patrick, who was a clever man, took the stage instead of Eugene, who was always intimidated by his uncle. But Ludvina knew even before they arrived at Heinskan Castle that Patrick, who appeared to be nice, was actually a liar.

The helpless Baron Linweisen always remained silent. However, those who claimed to be the Baron’s guardians were not the same. Ludvina could hear them bossing around and ordering the employees as if they were the owners of Heinskan Castle.
In Heinskan, Patrick and his family moved from town to town and bought goods in the name of Baron Linweisen, claiming that they were soon going to become ArchDuke Ibulaon’s in-laws. Ludvina however didn’t pay for them.Baron Eugene, unfortunately, lacked the authority to take control over his relatives. Therefore, he was dragged along by wicked tyranny.
With Ludvina’s son, who had said he had no intention of marrying, moving ahead with the contract marriage, Baron Linweisen’s estate had also become a key point for military and transportation. So, because the wedding was unavoidable, Ludvina had decided to kick Patrick out at least before the wedding. They had already gathered enough evidence and were just waiting for the right moment.Meanwhile, Eugene, who had lost his memory after rolling down the stairs, had changed.
Eugene appeared lovely at first glance, with soft hair like a young rose on a spring day, and light green eyes. Ludvina’s maid, who had met Eugene beforehand, said he looked like an angel delivering God’s word.
He was always intimidated before he lost his memory and thus, his beauty never shone. Now, although the blue bruise on his cheek had spread, he felt a strange power.
It appeared that Eugene had changed and Ludvina liked a dignified man.
“Yes, I’ll help you.”
Ludvina, the fourth-ranked knight, the hostess of Heinskan Castle and lady of Lycran, promised with confidence.
Eugene was called up by the ArchDuke Ibulaon the following afternoon.
Eugene, who was diligently preparing to meet the noble and owner of Heinskan Castle, paused for a moment to consider what life was like for the aristocracy. To be more specific, he admired the existence of servants who were the aristocracy’s hand and foot.
Eugene grew up to be nothing short of anything. His father was a businessman and his mother was a housewife who was good at housekeeping. His grandmother took great care of her grandchildren. Eugene, the youngest of four siblings, grew up to be quite cute. When he was in the first year of middle school, his father was scammed by his uncle, so his family was scattered. Fortunately, it was solved quickly, and there was nothing more than a big curve.
He didn’t lack anything, but it was a principle to do your own work, as there were many siblings. Not only his own room but there was also a separate area which he had to clean. Eugene used to run errands when he was young and when he became a middle school student, the first thing his brother taught him was to wash his shoes.
Since there were many families, breakfast and dinner timings were set. If he was early or late, he had to eat with his own hands and even clean up.
When Eugene entered college, the brothers had already become independent and left home. Thus Eugene’s work had increased a lot. That’s when he realized that no matter how much housework you do, it doesn’t show.
Robert, in that sense, was a perfect thunderbolt.
The first day he possessed Baron Eugene, he was under Robert’s care. He felt like Robert was a caregiver who cared for patients and stood by them when they were suffering from a fever. It was how he fed him water or wiped off his sweat that made Eugene feel so. However, as he prepared to greet ArchDuke Ibulaon, he realized why the servants were called the hands and feet of the aristocracy. From the moment Robert put water in the bathtub, a completely different world opened up to Eugene. Robert took off his pajamas, washed him in the bathtub, and wiped him after the bath. Even if Eugene told him that he doesn’t have to, Robert insisted it was his job.
Robert also dressed him up. It was the first time someone buttoned up his shirt since he graduated from elementary school.Robert showed little reaction to Eugene’s awkwardness. He seemed to think it was because Eugene had lost his memory.
It was the same thing every time. Even though he’s already lived here for a few days, he still felt it was awkward for someone else to dress him.
“Maybe it’s because you ate a lot of lunch, but your face doesn’t look pale, My Lord.”
Robert, who was tying a silk scarf tightly to a high-rise shirt collar, said with a bright smile. Robert felt that Eugene was a small-mouthed master. His breakfast consisted of only a cup of tea, and he didn’t eat lunch and dinner. Eugene used to eat scones as a snack, but it was rare to eat a whole one. On the contrary, now he had started to empty the whole plate almost immediately. The northern food was greasy and spicy, so it suited Eugene’s taste well. He found everything to be delicious. Especially the eggs that were soft.
“I’ll tell the cooks to cook eggs for dinner as well. I am almost done. Now you have to put on your jacket, this brooch is the last one. You can look into the mirror now, My Lord.”
Eugene turned towards the mirror. Although the weather was cloudy, the full-body mirror was reflecting Eugene’s unfamiliar appearance.
The men’s clothing here was very similar to modern suits. The basic was a dark monochrome jacket without embroidery. The only differences were that instead of a tie, he wore a scarf called a stock around his neck and wore a colored vest. The angled suit matched him well. But it was the light pink hair that caught Eugene’s eye.

‘I can’t get used to pink hair, no matter how much I look at it.’
Eugene wriggled his eyebrows to avoid frowning. His appearance was on the decent side. It could also be considered pretty. Yes, the word “pretty” suited him better than “handsome”.
White, transparent skin and eyelashes that matched his pastel-colored hair which was a mixture of pink and ivory, with pupils which were light green in color If he wore a dress, anyone could mistake him for a woman. Now, this was his face. But for Eugene, who previously had a large and sturdy body, it was not satisfactory.
‘If I am going to possess someone, isn’t it better to give me someone stronger and healthier? If nothing else, at least give me a status window or an inventory.’
Eugene grumbled at the gods of this world. He knew he was a failure, but the regret did not disappear.
