I was worried about what I should do in the palace for a week, but I was worried about nothing.
Hansel and Gretel visited not only alternately, but also from Andelov to Rose, and they were completely distracted.
In addition, the bakery was freely available, so I could spend time without being bored.
Gretel usually came to me during the day, Hansel came to see me in the morning and evening.
I did, but not today.
It was almost lunch, but Hansel couldn’t be seen.
When I asked the woman-in-law, she said she was very busy.
‘Yes, you must be busy.’
He’s a knight of the Imperial Palace. It was strange if you weren’t busy.
So I understood that I couldn’t come, but on the other hand, I was disappointed.
I felt strange because I felt sorry for this.
“What a strange thing.”
I murmured quietly and looked at the vase on my desk.
There was a tulip in the vase that Hansel brought me yesterday.
Thanks to the women-in-law’s good care, the tulip was still fresh after a day.
When I touched it, the dew fell on the back of my hand on the red petals.
Gretel couldn’t come because of work today, so I had to be alone all day.
I was not bored because I spent time making bread in the bakery, but I felt empty.
I feel like I’m completely out of my mind.
The empty heart, which was not filled with anything, was filled with joy when I saw Hansel’s face in the late evening.
“Hansel, you’re here.”
I was so happy that I couldn’t sit still and jumped up and strode to Hansel’s front.
He smelled of cold wind as he got closer.
You’ve been out there for a long time. I was worried that I might catch a cold in the cold weather.
I asked the maid behind Hansel.
“Can you go get me a warm tea? Oh, if you have a citron tea, please bring it to.”
“It’s cold. Let’s go in and talk, Hansel.”
Your hands are cold, too.
I held Hansel’s hand tightly and led him into the room with the intention of warming him up quickly.
Hansel followed me without saying a word.
It was cute to see a big dog following me.
After putting Hansel on the sofa, I covered him with a blanket I had just covered.
Hansel then fiddled with a sad face with a blanket.
I sat next to Hansel and asked.
“It’s late, but why are you in the palace without leaving work.”
Hansel paused for a moment and looked up at me and replied.
“There’s no such thing as getting off work for me.”
Do I have to stay in the palace for a knight?
But there’s still going to be time to get off work.
And Hansel used to live in my uncle’s house.
I was going to ask you because there were many strange things, but the maid brought the car.
It was the citron tea I asked for. Let’s ask questions later and start with warm tea.
“Drink it on your teeth, too.”
There was no conversation between me and Hansel while drinking warm citron tea.
I wanted to talk to you, but Hansel was lost in deep thought.
What are you thinking so hard about?
Hansel said while sipping the car and looking at Hansel’s senses.
“You may leave the palace tomorrow.”
The Emperor finally gave us permission!
It’s been almost a week, so it’s time to get permission.
“Fortunately, I was worried if I couldn’t get out.”
“Did you want to go out like that?”
“Of course! The palace is comfortable, but it’s frustrating. It’s not where I am.”
Hansel smiled bitterly as I shook my head and said.
Hansel looked in the air again and again, lost in thought, and suddenly spoke out.
“Ell, do you want to drink?”
What did he just say? Alcohol?
“What kind of alcohol is a young man?”
There was a tone of displeasure somewhere.
Hansel dropped the teacup loudly and tilted his upper body toward me.
What’s wrong with him?
I was so embarrassed that I couldn’t even think of running away and hardened.
The distance is close enough to feel each other’s breath.
The cold wind that has not yet disappeared and his body odor mixed to stimulate the tip of the nose.
asked Hansel, who put his face right in front of his nose.
“Do I still look young?”
I looked blankly at Hansel without answering no or saying yes.
Hansel gently wrapped my hand in the cup.
The inside of the palm was warm, but the back of the hand was cold, making me feel strange.
My heart throbbed.
For a man, long eyelashes fluttered lightly like a butterfly’s wings.
“Do I still look like a child?”
The spitting red lips caught the eye.
My heart pounded because I remembered the moment when those lips touched my cheek.
My heart beat faster because I had kissed him on the cheek.
A low, static voice knocked on the ear.
“Oh, I see!”
I held on to Hansel’s chest with an increasingly distant spirit.
“You know you’re an adult, so stay away.”
I thought I’d hold on heavy, but unexpectedly Hansel fell easily.
He smiled as he folded his eyes savagely.
“Then let’s drink together.”
What an enemy to drinking? Why do you want to eat like that?
“Do you happen to have a consultation with me?”
If I had any stress or concerns, I would eat sweets and solve them.
For the same reason, there are people who drink alcohol and solve it, so I asked just in case.
Then Hansel smiled silently. I guess it was the original song.
I’m trying to borrow the power of alcohol without being able to talk to you because I have a problem.
I was very worried.
“Okay, I’ll eat with you.”
Hansel asked me for help, but it wasn’t right to refuse.
“Whatever you want to tell me.”
“Yes, tell me anything. I’ll listen to everything!”
Hansel laughed as if he were about to break down at my words. He also looked miserable.
You must be worried.
I don’t know what it is, but I’ll listen to it all today, so don’t worry, Hansel.
And we will also consider ways to solve the issue.
“Bring me some drinks!”
I asked the woman-in-law for a drink with such determination.
I wasn’t a big fan of alcohol.
At best, I drank a can or two of cold beer after taking a bath.
But it didn’t mean that alcohol was weak. He was so strong that he could survive five rounds of driving at the company dinner.
But why do I feel dizzy after a few drinks?
The answer was because this body was not originally my body, but Elle’s body.
Elle, you punk. You had a weak drink.
I’ve only been drinking beer and now I realize it.
This is how you felt when you were drunk.
I knew for the first time because I had never been drunk in my life.
As the view became blurred, things began to shake and look two.
“Are you all right, Eel?”
It was the same with Hansel.
But Hansel, you’re still handsome.
“Our Hansel, you’re self-conscious.”
I smiled back and pinched Hansel’s cheek.
Hansel grinned and took off my hand pinching his cheek.
“I’m not drunk?”
“I’m not drunk. My eyes are loosened and my tongue is twisted.”
I know. My tongue is twisted.
I don’t know because I can’t see my eyes loosened.
“Hansel, you must be strong.”
He ate a lot more than I did, but Hansel’s tongue was not twisted and his eyes were not loosened.
“I see. My uncle’s drunk, and I guess it runs in the family.”
“Oh, then Gretel must be strong, too.
“Gretel isn’t our only blood.”
Oh, right. You two, your mother was different.
By the way, we should listen to Hansel’s concerns instead of course.
“Come on, Hansel, tell me all your troubles.”
I pounded on my chest and shouted loudly.
‘I’ll listen to everything!’
“I think that’s what I said earlier.”
Well, was it. I don’t really remember.
“So what’s your problem with consulting me?”
“I never told her I had a problem I wanted to talk to.”
“Huh? But you said we’d drink together?”
I tilted my head.
“Isn’t that because you want to consult?”
“That’s how it works.”
Hansel thought for a moment and laughed.
As expected, my prediction is not wrong.
I turned completely towards Hansel and looked up at him.
“What is it? Tell me.”
“……I have a girl I like.”
Oh, my God, was that the story?
If Gretel hadn’t heard anything, she would have clapped her hands and loved it, but it was embarrassing.
I haven’t figured out how to tell Hansel about the story yet.
I need more time!
Hansel, who didn’t know how I felt, confessed his worries with a dark face.
“How can I approach a girl I like to get her to accept me without feeling rejected?”
Naturally, I remembered Hansel begging Rose.
At the same time, I felt bad. The mouth was soft as if it was chewing sand.
I didn’t know why I suddenly felt this way.
“Ellie, do you know the answer?”
I didn’t even get answers that I could give you, such as being friendly, giving you what you like as a gift, etc.
I was thinking about how to tell Hansel about it and finally decided to tell him the truth.
There was a similar situation before, and it worked to talk straight rather than spinning.
“If you like Rose, give it up, Hansel.”
So I thought it would be like that again, and I said it out loud.
Then Hansel’s eyes got bigger for a moment. You look very surprised.
Did I say it too openly from the beginning?
I’m going to talk a little more smoothly now.
“I don’t know why you think so.”
Hansel, who got up from his seat, grabbed me by the shoulder and said,
“The woman I like is not my teacher, but Eel.”
