    I Mistook the Hidden Identity of the Sub Male Lead Chapter 18

    Translated by Niks
    Edited by Niks



    Now that she was entrusted with educating me, she’ll know I’m an exclusive maid.


    ‘Was it simple harassment?’


    It felt like my blood was turning cold.


    Was it the problem that I got a job as easy as parachuting? Or was it a rite of passage for new recruits?


    Whatever the reason, I had to stay admitted or rejected by them.


    ‘Please don’t spray water or put a tack on my shoes while you pass by.’


    However they wouldn’t think of poisoning my food right?


    So maybe I could still eat.


    I decided to think positively.


    I was exhausted from the first day, because of the difficult journey, but I couldn’t stay like this.


    ‘There’s nothing easy in the world.’


    I know that life doesn’t change dynamically even if I think of my previous life overnight.


    However, thanks to that memory, it changed the worst future.


    And my values have changed as well.


    A belief that my parents taught me in my past life.


    They told me to always think positively because good things and bad things depend on how I appreciate them.


    I think it was thanks to those values, I was able to withstand difficult and painful things in my previous life.


    ‘My friends just teased me about rationalizing myself, but good things are good.’


    I was curious about my death in my previous life, but now this is my reality here in this place.


    I knew that if I sat down because I was unhappy, nothing would change.


    So let’s do what I can.


    I lightly slapped both of my cheeks and went out into the hallway to cheer up.


    “How’s your job?”


    Oh! I was startled for a moment…


    I was surprised by the voice that I heard without pretending to be unnoticed.


    Grandiel, who burst out laughing when he saw me, was outside the window of the hallway on the first floor.


    In the form of Nepenthes.


    He was dressed as a servant with shoulder-length hair tied in a single ponytail, and with long bangs roughly pulled over.


    “Diel? Why are you here…”


    “I’m here to make sure Miss Mayerie is doing well.”


    ‘You’ve been here since day one to watch if I’m working properly right? That’s scary.’


    I looked at Grandiel with a creepy expression on my face.


    He had a languid smile with his chin on the window frame.


    It was the first floor, but I was inside the building, and Grandiel was outside, so I looked down at him, who was taller than me.


    ‘It’s nice to look down at someone and feel like a head taller, even if it’s just the mood.’


    As I was thinking about it, then he whispered in a low voice.


    “Was there anything difficult?”


    I think it’s going to happen soon.


    My heart was heavy, but I couldn’t tell him something that didn’t happen yet.


    I tried to smile and shook my head.


    “I just got here and changed into my uniform. I haven’t even seen the princess yet.”


    “If anything happens, feel free to tell me.”


    Does he worry about me because he’s my employer?


    It gives a reassuring feeling to hear that.


    “It’s all right.”


    The belief that he was on my side made me feel more comfortable.


    I approached Grandiel’s window with a smile on my face.


    Then, almond-colored eyes stared all over my face for a long time.


    Suddenly I tried to bring out a joke in the quiet atmosphere, but Grandiel’s hand touched my cheek and I stiffened in place.


    “Your cheeks are… Red.”


    Grandiel, looking up at me with drooping eyebrows, and then he stroked my cheek sadly.


    I paused for a moment at Grandiel’s sudden attack with his beauty, but soon I came to my senses with a cough.


    “Oh, this, it’s because I hit it myself to cheer up.”




    No, why do you look at me like that?


    However, Grandiel didn’t respond, he just stared at me.


    His hand, which carefully stroked my cheek, began to fiddle with my cheeks as if kneading.


    ‘What? If you touch it because you’re worried, don’t rub it like this. Are you warning me that I have a lot of fat on my cheek? Why? Do you want me to lose weight? Or you’re just a pervert…’


    I was seriously contemplating why Grandiel touched my cheek, but before I could take any action, his hand fell.


    So why did you touch my cheek?


    I was in doubt, but when I saw Grandiel laughing, I didn’t think he would answer.


    I turned the subject around to refresh the atmosphere.


    “By the way, was Diel your nickname?”




    Grandiel, who was briefly lost in thought, replied one beat late.


    “Was it okay if I called you that inside the palace? Wouldn’t anyone who knew the Crown Prince notice?”


    “It doesn’t matter. No one in the Imperial Palace knows my nickname.”


    It feels like I stepped on a landmine.


    He said it was fine, but the discomfort I felt did not disappear.


    Grandiel’s past, which was not described in the novel, seemed far more lonely than I thought.


    Having been isolated from the imperial palace since his childhood, he must have lived in silence for a long time.


    The emperor, who was not interested in his children, even recognized Grandiel as the crown prince just before he died.


    ‘Did you think about it for a second because you didn’t know your nickname? Maybe I’m the first person to call his nickname.’


    I felt sorry for him.


    I had to reflect on myself as I thought his lonely life was just a plot to highlight the coolness of Ellex.


    “Why are you sad?”


    It was a strange expression.


    A face that I couldn’t understand.


    It was understandable. 


    From his point of view, a person who he has not met a few times sympathizes with him as if she knows everything, not only his past but also his background.
