The Reason I Keep Avoiding My Childhood Friend - Chapter 17
Why’re stopping yourself from speaking? Don’t ignore my survival instincts! Come over to this little cutie’s side! I clutched the maid’s arms and made a pitiful sound.
“I don’t like scary people. With my dad not around….”
Only at this time did my father become a father. The maid’s heart seemed to have weakened a lot. She even sounded a bit nasal. The time has come! I willed strength into my eyes and stared at her with my teary orbs. The seven-year-old’s tear attack was potent. The maid looked like she had lost.
“Fine, I lose. Now, this is a secret, okay?”
There was no one nearby, but the maid checked the surroundings thoroughly before speaking. I nodded my head quickly. The maid lowered her voice even more.
“You know that His Grace has a son, don’t you?”
I nodded. I’ve already done some research on the Duchy I was dependent on. I also knew that there was a little boy a year older than me.
“You know, right? About the little duke. Just be careful of him, and you’ll be fine.”
Fear seeped in. I couldn’t believe it. Only eight years old, yet he had such a reputation. I didn’t have the remotest idea then of how accurate it actually was.
“Why? Is he a scary person?”
“Something like that. Just avoid him.”
Though she looked like she couldn’t explain more, she didn’t hide her expression while telling her this.
Was it just a misunderstanding that made the maid tell me to avoid him? I don’t think so. That young master must be really rude. If so, I decided it was right to heed the advice and avoid him.
The scariest among my nasty customers were the children – they had power, but were ignorant of how to use it. Those kids who have no common sense can do infinite wrongs and never realize their mistakes.
In this way, he proudly entered the blacklist of my life. But then we met on my first day itself.
It wouldn’t have mattered if it was just a meeting, but it attracted his attention. No matter how stupid I was, I could tell the kid had come to the dining room on purpose to meet me.
This wasn’t good.
Kirsec, you must be interested in me because you’re happy to have a peer. But what should I do? The little guy’s interest is scary. As a child, I know his interest will drop soon, but I still have to take more care from tomorrow.
After resting like that till my stomach eased a little, I got up again and sat down at the table. The amount I was taught today was formidable. I have to review it before I forget.
Goals! Civil servant! I reminded myself and concentrated on the book.
The next day, I woke up early in the morning. I entered the dining room carefully, apprehensive of a repeat of yesterday’s encounter.
Fortunately, there was no little guy in sight. Well, it made no sense for a kid like Kirsec to wake up so early and eat.
After finishing the meal peacefully, I studied in the morning and had lunch as soon as it was time to eat.
Since that day, I was afraid of encountering Kirsec again, so I started rushing through my meals and reduced walking around.
I didn’t even go out of the building. I would eat dinner early and return to my room. I would walk around within the room or its surroundings for exercise.
I tried to avoid him because I thought he would lose interest if we didn’t meet for a few days.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
And like a reward for my efforts, I spent one happy week without seeing a single hair of Kirsec.
My father will be back in a few days, and my relationship with Kirsec will cease for good. Just imagining it made me want to hop up and down.
I had a refreshing morning that day, too. As usual, I washed my face neatly and opened the door to my bedroom to have my early breakfast.
Then I noticed the shadow blocking my way. My heart sank.
I was looking at someone who wasn’t supposed to be here – a little devil in the mask of an angel. I realized that I had underestimated the kid’s tenacity and let my guard down.
