Then, Anne-Marie gave a light chuckle and added.

“To be honest, I’m thinking about quitting the clinic.”

“What?”

I was a little surprised.

Anne-Marie quitting the clinic? That didn’t happen in the novel at all. There were times where I got a similar feeling, but this was the first time I really felt that the original story was trying to leave main track in Anne-Marie’s hands. Of course, the story already went off track when I helped Lakis, but I thought the rest of the story would flow in a similar manner…

I guess I took it too lightly.

“I actually fainted from overexertion not long ago.”

And Anne-Marie’s next words startled me.

“That happened?”

“Ah, it wasn’t that serious, don’t worry. It was just one time in front of my house…”

Anne-Marie explained to me, looking a little sheepish as she did so. As if she made a big deal out of something that wasn’t much. However, there was no way collapsing from overexertion was a minor issue.

“I think it’s because you have a lot of work at the clinic and you kept pushing myself. Did you get checked up?”

“Yes, they said I was fine.”

Anne-Marie gave a bright smile as if thanking me for worrying about her. Then she seemed to think about something, and her smile faded.

“But you know, I’m worried about Hestia, so I want to start taking care of my body, at least now…that’s why I’m leaning towards quitting the clinic if possible.”

I was beginning to understand what Anne-Marie was thinking. If something bad happened to her, Hestia would end up without a single relative and that sudden fainting spell made her blood run cold. Even before, she had casually told me about how she was spending less and less time with Hestia.

“I see…well, chose what makes you comfortable and I hope it works out best for you, Ms. Anne-Marie.”

And when I said that, Anne-Marie once again smiled beautifully like a freshly blossomed flower.

“Thank you, Ms. Yuri. If it’s okay with you, would you like to go home together?”

“Sure.”

Like that, we made a promise for later and went our separate ways.

* * *

Caw!

A crow cried out by the window.

Lakis went to where the sound came from and opened the window. Then he found a black feather sitting on the window frame. On it was a message Odin sent to Lakis, using a crow. Just like when he sent messages to Yuri, the feather was engraved with tiny, faint letters that were difficult to see with the human eye.

However, Lakis was naturally beyond the classification of human so it was easy for him to see it.

‘Looks like he’s doing his job well.’

After confirming the contents, Lakis’ lips curved in a crooked smile. Of course, he still didn’t like the crow Odin, but apart from that, he had to admit the guy was quite useful.

Click.

Right then, he heard the sound of the door opening from behind him. Lakis squeezed the feather tight and it turned into black smoke, disappearing without a trace. Then he went to greet Yuri.

“Mr. Lakis, let’s have a talk.”

Yuri said as soon as she saw Lakis. Before coming home, Yuri felt she needed to address what happened yesterday. Of course, it was true she was taken in by Lakis’ beauty but she thought it was unfair of Lakis to take the chance to solve his curiosity like that.

After she called him, she could feel Lakis promptly studying her face. After a brief pause, he began walking to Yuri again. But as he drew closer than necessary for some reason, Yuri opened her mouth to tell him to stop there.

However, Lakis acted faster that she could speak. Before she knew it, he was right before her, and his blonde hair shook before eyes. At the same time, he took her hand without any hesitation and wove their fingers together.

“Are you…”

A low voice reverberated deeply past her ears.

“…still angry?”

Yuri’s lips unconsciously parted when she saw the light blue eyes looking down at her.

“Rather than anger…”

As she looked into Lakis’ eyes up-close, the words in her head seemed to fade away. She suddenly felt the distance between them was too small and took a step back to create some space. But Lakis moved just as much, rendering it useless.

“Mr. Lakis, what happened yesterday…”

“I’m sorry.”

And before Yuri finished what she was going to say, Lakis apologized first. He looked down at Yuri and whispered in a voice filled with sincerity.

“I was wrong. Please don’t be angry.”

He spoke as if trying to appease her and as she looking into the eyes facing her, she somehow felt speechless.

‘Oh, this is weird…’

Yuri felt suspicious when she saw Lakis like this. As she looked at his face, she didn’t feel like saying anything more. Of course, she wasn’t angry in the first place, but she felt like she should at least say something.

Was it because he looked like drenched puppy?

Eventually, the words Yuri said were very different from what she initially planned.

“Don’t do it again.”

Anyways, it looked like Lakis was seriously reflecting…so she figured she could leave it alone at this point.

At Yuri’s words, Lakis’ eyes curved in a soft smile to show he understood. Then he lifted her hand and pressed his lips to the back of her hand. The series of actions were so natural that Yuri didn’t even think of shaking him off.

Soon, a sweet whisper coiled around her ears.

“I missed you, Ms. Yuri.”

Yuri unconsciously held her breath.

‘Wow, how can someone talk like this?’

It was so sweet, as if his voice was made in sugar or honey. For some reason today, she felt like she had grown speechless in front of Lakis quite a few times. This feeling felt somehow dangerous for her heart, so Yuri unconsciously shook off his hand.

Once she separated from the body touching hers, her mind calmed down again. But it only lasted a moment because right after, Lakis touched her face and her heart softened again.

“Mr. Lakis…you’re too close.”

At Yuri’s words, Lakis tilted his head. Then a corner of his lips curved, and he whispered in a lazy, almost ticklish voice.

“I want to be even closer though.”

At this point, Yuri had no choice but to admit it. Lakis had a very great talent for captivating people. And his beauty trap was more effective on her than she thought. If Lakis knew what she was thinking, he would be very satisfied.

“Are you usually like this with anyone?”

Then Yuri asked unconsciously. At that, Lakis looked at her like he’d just heard something unexpected, then he soon said the same words she’d said not too long ago.

“No. I’m only like this with you.”

Yuri was once again speechless. The sweet voice felt a little ticklish as it dug into her ears.

“I’m hungry.”

So she changed the subject, spun around and walked away. Lakis chuckled under his breath and followed after Yuri.

* * *

On her day off from the coffeehouse, Yuri told Lakis she had an appointment so she would be getting back late then she went out in the afternoon. After which, she stopped by Leo’s hideout to change her clothing.

“I-I’m sorry! I’m trying really hard! It’s definitely not because I can’t but Odin has hidden himself so well.”

Once she saw Yuri, Siren urgently made an excuse. Ever since Yuri made a request, she had been manipulating her bird to look for Odin. However, she was yet to get any outstanding results.

“Please look a little harder. I’ll also look for him myself.”

Yuri said, after nodding to show she understood.

However, Siren was crestfallen because she felt she had disappointed Yuri.

“Yuri! Me too! Me too!”

Right then, Leo butt in and arrogantly asked to be involved in looking for Odin.

“Me, direction, good! Siren, bad!”[1]

“What the? A mere watchdog is looking down on me?”

Naturally, Siren blew her top.

“I know you’re good at directions too, Leo. But you don’t have to help this time. It might be dangerous.”

However, Yuri stroked Leo’s head and refused. There was the fact that he was caught by slave traders looking for mutants last time, and above all, Leo stood out when he moved around so it was dangerous.

With Yuri’s refusal, it was Leo’s turn to be crestfallen and his ears drooped down.

“Hmph, I’m enough help for Arachne, OK?”

Siren turned up her nose and laughed.

“Grrrrr.”

“What, keep glaring at me. What’re you gonna do?”

Yuri ignored the two of them snarling at each other and began to change her clothes.

“Gasp!”

Siren was shocked and covered Leo’s eyes with her wings.

“Arachne, you-! It’s not just two of us here, this watchdog’s here too. Why’re you just tossing your clothes?”

“Even in the lab, I changed in front of others, who cares.”

“Is this the lab? You…! Don’t tell me you do this at home t-too…”

Upon hearing Yuri speak calmly, Siren spoke with disbelief.

    Lakis is getting good at “understanding” Yuri.
    Only if Yuri has her emotions, she would know how wrong it is 🙈 .
    If she did in front of Lakis !!!!! It would end up with another Lakis “interrogation” and some people “dying” to clear “evidence”.

    Only Yuri has such strong case of indifference others still know such things .

  4. Malacat

    The story is completely deviating from it’s original script now. If Ann gets a new job she’ll be able to afford a new better place and with her gone and the coffee shop getting to loud with the annoying hero trio I think Yuri may just take a chance jobs and location. (still being conveniently close to Ann.)

    The bug would explode if it knew Yuri was comparing Lakias to a sad puppy. Yet, I need more puppy Lakias. A hidden power of making a giant beast seem small and cute. How many powers does this boy have? 😛

    Thank you Miss Ruby for the update ♥️♥️♥️.
    You know you’re good when you make her forget her entire argument. Just because Lakis does this I hope one day she can use it against him…so unfair 🤣🤣🤣. And is Anne-Marie referring to when Lakis knocked her out?

    Hahaha, So manipulative! It’s almost unfair!
    At least he truly cares for her, and she’s so easy going she doesn’t seem to mind it. I love that she calls it a “beauty trap” she could probably do the same thing back! She should try it when he’s touching her. Imagine a blushing Lakis!

    Oooh, will she find Odin???

    Thanks for the chapter! Have a lovely weekend. =)

    Anne-Marie might take the job from the crawford family? Because she only needs to tend to one patient and she could also spend more time to hestia?

    Thanks for another chapter!
    I understand if it’s a vacation but quitting? Just how many people are getting injured in such a peaceful neighborhood for her to think she was overworked? With her healing powers they should be breezing through the few they get. Or did Kalian send everyone he saved/arrested/almost killed there too?
    Well maybe I shouldn’t take what she said at face value and it just means that caretaker job pays too well and she might to get to live in a real mansion…

    • Miss Ruby

      She works in a clinic and I think there’s only one in the neighborhood. If this world is anything like ours, people probably get sick on the daily. Working in the medical field can be time consuming.

      28+

      • The17thNoah

        Sorry that I downplayed the stress in medical fields. I might have subconciously compared to our current pandemic situation and thought she shouldn’t have it as hard there. Also, I just had this impression that her workplace is at the school nurse level of busy, usually no lines. But I did forget her popularity might be doubling her workload or more, so her assumption that her fainting was due to work stress might not be weird afterall. And leaving Hestia lonely is true but I wasn’t as worried as her since we readers know Leo is gonna be accompanying her anyway. I’m just not taking her quitting and possibly moving away as calmly as Yuri is taking it.

        9+

    • Milo

      The reason why she fainted wasn’t because she was overworked. It was because of Lakis when he saved her from getting kidnapped in the past chapters thinking it was Yuri. Since he made her forget the incident she now has a massive misunderstanding that it must be because of exhaustion.

      8+

      • The17thNoah

        Yes but I’m questioning from her perspective why she jumped to immediately thinking of quitting her job when her income is so “low” she thinks her current middle class house is tiny. Not early leaves, not more days off, not a vacation, but all out quitting. She even got checked and was fine. Was she actually overworked afterall? Was it just an exaggeration in a friendly chat? Or was it because she found a better job? If it’s the 3rd with the gramps, she’s probably moving away long term! I want her to be more involved with Yuri, not sidelined farther!

    Thank you for the chapter, Miss Ruby.
    We never know what happened last time, when Hestia met Leo, right?
    Where did they go? Or What did they do?
    If they grew closer, then Leo sneaked out many times.
    It will be dangerous for both party.
    Am I raising the flag now? *sigh

    I wonder how Odin’s confined life is after the other day lol
    What happened with hestia and leo hmm…

    AND DANG THOSE SUGAR SWEET MOMENTS—thank you for the meal

  16. Mitsuki000

    Hahaha Lakis is conscious of his charm and knows hot to use it uwu It doubled on Yuri because of the connection they have, so he has the upper hand xD Yuri, dear, just surrender~ And accept the fact that the relationship between you two is no longer just of housemates o3o

    I’m happy to know Odin is alive and possibly mentally well, his absence for many chapters really worried me oAo At least Lakis finds him useful, so he can continue to live another day. Poor baby bird. The things he has to go through…

    I don’t think Yuri changed in front of Lakis, because that would have caused a huge impact on him hahaha. And I doubt he would just sit still after that. Like touching her hand would no longer be enough xD Oh Lord. If she told him that was something she did at the place she used to live (the lab) and he knows that Odin and Leo saw her, then that would be the end for them oAo. Because the other people on the lab are already death, they would be the only alive witnesses. Well, Siren too, but would he consider her too in his killing rampage? He didn’t seem jealous of Anne Marie and she’s legit his biggest rival xD

    One thing I wonder is: what if Anne Marie regains her memory of the day she fainted? She has special power of healing, so it could make sense if her brain cures itself and remembers those events. And if she finds out Yuri lives together with Lakis? Oh my OAo

    Thank you so much for your hard work, Miss Ruby!! 💕

    Obviously the story will really deviate since you keep helping anne marie. How is she supposed to meet or whatever the male lead if you keep destroying the supposed course of event. Like for example her is sister is supposed to be kidnapped and the male lead should be the one helping her and here you are disrupting it hahahahaha

    Lakis such a lady killer… Where did you learn such a sweet words that melted a cold woman heart like Yuri. “I miss you…” gahhhh, I’m screaming at this.
