My Childhood Friends Are Trying To Kill Me - Chapter 187 - The Final Chapter
As she entered the dining hall with Romeo, she saw Kalix seated crookedly.
“Hey, what took you so long?”
“Why? If you were hungry, you should have eaten some cherry blossoms.”
Kalix’s forehead wrinkled at Romeo’s answer.
They were using the letter to tease him again.
He thought he should go straight back to his room after the meal and check the letter.
Lelia sat down and laughed at Kalix. She couldn’t hold back her laughter at the thought of Kalix eating a handful of cherry blossoms when they were young.
“Hey, don’t give such a heart-fluttering laugh, unless you’re going to give me a position as a concubine.”
Lelia bit her lip to suppress her laughter. .
After that, Griffith appeared. He sat down with a judgemental expression.
“Oh, right. Oscar will be here soon. He went to Hraesvelg Empire for a moment to settle some affairs.”
All three men’s expressions turned sour at Lelia’s words. They were not curious at all about Oscar’s movements.
“Oh really? I hope he doesn’t come forever.”
Romeo said coldly, and Griffith’s expression turned strange. He opened his mouth with a meaningful voice.
“He has been going often lately. It’s a little weird… Does he leave you here alone, and go there alone?”
Griffith was always like this. He kept framing Oscar at the smallest of things.
“He already has a woman, you j*rk.”
When Kalix shot back, Romeo clicked his tongue in agreement.
Lelia began eating, while watching the three’s reactions unwillingly.
In fact, there was another reason Oscar was busy recently.
The relationship between Oscar and Lelia has recently become more special, so they would chat about many topics every night. Not long ago, they talked about children.
Although there wasn’t a child yet, she felt strange when they had a conversation about it.
“Later, when a child is born, let’s go to the Hraesvelg Empire together. Because it’s your hometown.”
At Leila’s words, Oscar had a strange look on his face.
“Hraesvelg Castle would be desolate.”
“Are there any places that’s suitable other than that?”
“I’ll find out.”
Oscar looked somewhat excited. Lelia looked at him as if he were lovely.
Lelia wanted to let Oscar, who had a poor past, know the warmth of a family.
He would make a good father.
Kind and sweet.
From that day, Oscar began to visit the Hraesvelg Empire to find a villa.
He didn’t want to leave, even though it was only, at best, an hour or two every few days. But Lelia sent him alone.
This was due to Oscar’s worsening separation anxiety disorder.
At Lelia’s firm refusal, Oscar was forced to go alone.
Looking at how her friends were behaving today, Lelia knew why Oscar didn’t want to leave.
‘You were afraid this would happen…’
It was both bitter and funny to see her friends framing Oscar as soon as he was away.
At that moment.
Lelia’s head turned to Oscar’s low voice. She could see him leaning against the wall with his arms folded at the entrance of the dining hall.
Lelia happily called him and beckoned.
Oscar glared at his friends and sat next to Lelia.
“You’re pretending not to be honest. You have a girlfriend, right?
Kalix asked mockingly.
Oscar didn’t answer back and checked Lelia’s meal.
“Are you only going to eat this much? Why don’t you eat more?”
“Look at him changing the subject. I got it. I got it.”
As Kalix continued to be sarcastic, Oscar stared at him coldly.
“Would anyone else notice him if he left Lelia alone? Why don’t you try it first if you can? Stop being obsessed with other people’s wives.”
“…You’ll regret this later.”
Angered, Kalix clenched his jaw.
‘Let’s see what happens when I take the concubine position later.’
Kalix was confident that as long as he had the position, he would immediately steal Lelia’s heart.
Lelia wasn’t only weak against Oscar, so he must have a chance of winning.
Griffith shook his head looking at Kalix as if he were disappointed.
Griffith, who turned to Lelia again, blinked slowly.
No one can feel it yet, but he, who possessed divine power, could.
A new life was growing in Lelia’s womb.
It was clear that neither Lelia nor the father of the child, Oscar, knew of it yet.
The fact that he was the first to know that existence aroused a strange pleasure.
In addition, he felt a little responsible.
The weak life energy was lovely. As long as it resembled Lelia, he was confident that he could give as much love as a biological father.
Although Griffith had never believed in God, at this moment he wanted to pray.
He hoped that the child who will be born will resemble Lelia only.
As Griffith had expected, everyone learned of Lelia’s pregnancy not long afterwards.
Everyone was delighted to learn the news and congratulated Lelia and Oscar.
Although he was apprehensive, he couldn’t make it obvious in front of Lelia, who was happier than anyone else.
“In my eyes, you still seem like a kid…”
Karius murmured with a puzzled expression.
He glared at Oscar.
In the meantime, Lelia stroked the flat belly, in disbelief.
Elizabeth overlapped her hands over the back of Lelia’s hand.
Her grandmother and grandfather sniffled and even teared up.
After dinner, there was a celebration party.
Lelia, who washed up and sat on the bed, glanced anxiously at Oscar, who was sitting next to her.
Oscar has been in a daze after hearing the news. He didn’t even wrinkle his forehead.
“Oscar… Aren’t you happy?”
Not long ago, they had even talked about going to a villa with a child in the future.
They had even purchased a nice villa located at the beach of the Hraesvelg Empire.
But she couldn’t believe his reaction turned to this now.
‘Could it be that he’s unhappy about the child?’
“Oscar, do you not like children?”
Oscar, who was absent-minded, turned his head and looked at Lelia. He placed a big, trembling hand on Lelia’s waist.
Her waist was slender, as if he could hold it with one hand.
His hand gradually headed to her lower abdomen. The flat belly was soft and warm.
As he used his mana, he felt a small life energy.
Griffith would have detected this energy much earlier than him.
At that thought, a surge of unpleasant feelings rose in his heart.
However, his worries came first.
“I’m afraid you’ll be tired or sick.”
Lelia put her hand on Oscar’s hand, which was trembling in fear.
“It’s going to be okay.”
“I’m scared. If anything happens to you…”
“Don’t worry about it. I’ll be fine.”
Lelia’s voice was firm. Oscar hugged Lelia and pressed his lips down on the side of her head.
Yes, Griffith, who had the ability to heal, was around. Lelia will be safe. He was upset by the fact, but he could stand it for Lelia.
“My heart feels weird.”
When Oscar muttered, Lelia’s face changed.
From Oscar’s expression, it didn’t seem like he hated it.
Lelia deliberately asked in an excited voice.
“What shall we name it?””
“Whatever you want.”
“I wonder if it’s a boy or a girl.”
Oscar’s lips turned upwards at Lelia’s words.
It was clear that no matter what gender it was, it would be more lovely than anyone else.
Oscar pulled Lelia and hugged her so tightly there wasn’t a gap between them.
His heart fluttered anxiously.
He has never felt this way before.
He couldn’t believe a child, who will resemble her, will be born.
‘Can I dare to enjoy this kind of happiness?’
Then, Lelia suddenly pushed Oscar away and stood up.
Lelia fiddled with the necklace she wore frequently.
“I suddenly thought of something.”
“What is it?”
“After my mother gave birth to me, she cast a spell on this necklace. Whatever it is, please make my wish come true.”
“I want to do it for you too… Is it possible?
“I’ll help you.”
Oscar reached out and fiddled with Lelia’s necklace.
It wasn’t that difficult with the magic that he possessed.
“Close your eyes.”
Lelia closed her eyes as Oscar had instructed
He looked at her long eyelashes as if he was possessed for a while, before putting mana in her necklace.
So that not only the wishes of the child to be born, but also Lelia’s wishes will also come true.
He could do anything Lelia wanted. As long as it was not to leave her side.
After imbuing her necklace with his magic, Oscar kissed Lelia’s lips, who had her eyes closed innocently.
Come to think of it, since she is pregnant, for the time being, he couldn’t spend a deep night with Lelia.
But it didn’t matter. Rather, it will become a time to serve only Lelia.
Oscar hugged Lelia’s waist.
After her pregnancy was revealed, Lelia felt as if she had become a queen.
This is because the attitudes of Oscar, her family members and friends, as well as all the servants of the castle have become extremely cautious.
It was a little burdensome and uncomfortable, but she also felt responsible.
It felt weird.
She couldn’t believe that a tiny life was growing in her.
Lelia, who was reading a book while seated in a warm room, suddenly looked up.
‘If I had Alchemy at a time like this, I can ask it all kinds of questions.’
Recently, people have been especially careful about the words they speak in front of Lelia.
As a result, they didn’t speak at all.
Even Kalix, who always spits his words out without a second thought, became silent.
Lelia held her belly while thinking that she wanted to have a frank conversation with someone.
She missed Alchemy.
Just as she was about to stop staring into space and lift the book again.
She heard a sound that was both familiar and unfamiliar.
There was no reason to hear this again.
Lelia blinked blankly, and placed her hand on the necklace without realizing it.
