Chapter 13 – Mary San’s Diary
I was working as a head maid of Beryl House, for the pride of the nation, a Noble and a Knight’s Leader, Gion Sama, for a few years. But…
A few days ago, the heir, Williams Sama, was born.
He inherited the silky and soft silver hair from Master and the green eyes from Madam. His eyes shone brightly like the gemstone of the sun, Peridot.
His long and thin eyes, strong nose and small cute lips. [TN: As for his eyes, remember that they are closed.] All perfectly balanced and arranged on his face. There was no doubt…his beauty would exceed Master’s….cough.
A few days ago, his first birthday came and he welcomed it in the cutest way possible.
The other day, he was surrounded by the other maids, who kept saying how cute he was and even pinched his cheeks. How unbelievable, I wanted to do it to-…. cough.
And that Young Master Will was no other but a genius! Beautiful and clever, and since he was the son of the now-defeated Master Gion, his athlete abilities must be good! Why was he such a genius?
To be specific; firstly was his language ability.
Before he could even support his head, he seemed to be able to understand our words. I had a feeling he could understand and even answered me whenever I spoke to him.
And in these few days, he could already carry a normal conversation.
However, Young Master …
Time to time would sing some strange songs.
” A, E, I, O, U ” [Japanese Ah,Ii, Uu, Eh, Oh]
He would sing with that 5 tones like there was a regularity to it….Maybe there was some meaning to it?
But, this perfect Young Master, had a flaw!
He loved to wander! Leaving your eyes from him even a moment, he would slip off somewhere, using that skillful baby hands of his.
Good grief…I wondered where he wandered off to everyday.
Tomorrow, Master was expected to return from his investigations of the territory.
I wondered if I needed to get up early tomorrow…Well then, it was time for me to head to bed.
I wondered what reaction Young Master would give tomorrow… How exciting.
” Yawn.. ”
I had a good sleep.
A maid’s morning started early. However, I was the head so I was not allowed to sleep in late.
Which reminded me, it seemed like Young Master had not been wandering around these few days. It started after Master talked to Young Master about something.
I cracked my neck and got down from the bed, putting my shoes on. Standing in front of the mirror, I tied my long hair up the way it usually was tied.
…Sigh, I was getting older…I could see crow’s feet…
It was inevitable since I turned 40 years old, I could only accept it.
I wanted to inform Young Master that Master was returning today but was stopped. ‘It’s a surprise!’ he went, in high spirits.
I ended up having some free time before I was to call on Young Master for lunch.
” Mary San isu busy with wirk. I am fine bi meself so it’su okay to finish yuor werk fiist. ”
Was what Young Master said, so I could only play with him after finishing all the housework.
He had said it in a polite way but it seemed to have an underlying meaning to it.
I needed to finish all my housework fast so I could play!
I walked briskly towards the room next to Master and Madam’s bedroom.
” !!! ”
I was able to hear Young Master’s ecstatic voice from inside the room even when I was in the corridor! How rare!
I wondered what he was doing! I was going to participate as well!
I lightly knocked on the door and pushed it open….
” …… ”
” …..Young Master….. ”
My eyes met with Young Master who was raising his fist up in a pose happily.
How cute! Too cute!
As I temporarily went speechless..
” Mary San…whatsu uppu? ”
He said as he slowly lowered his raised arm and looked up at me. Yaaa, how dangerous. I must be shown what I was thinking on my face…
And then Young Master tilted his head.
Ah, my nose bled.
Without thinking, I turned my back on him.
” ….Cough. Young Master, your lunch is prepared in the dining room. ”
” Okay, I am going… ”
…Too cute. What was it with this kind of torture?!
I trembled from the thought of wanting to hug him tight.
Think zen thoughts…zen…
Reaching the dining room, I opened the door.
” Thank chu… ”
Young Master was a kind soul who never forgot to thank me, a maid. But his lisping was too cute.
Our eyes met when he was being hugged by Master… Too cute!
He must have been looking forward to playing with Master!
