    I Slept with the Villain Holding My Hand Chapter 74.1

    Unfortunately, finding the Lord’s room was easier than expected, but the problem has started from there.

     

    The space inside created by magic for the room was too wide.

     

    Looking at the materials piled up in the spacious room, I already felt exhausted.

     

     

    In earnest, I began to rummage through the documents and diaries that Gaithia had left.

     

    Merria also rummaged through her memories to guess when the incident that Reukis caused the runaway.

     

    ‘Since His Majesty’s death, my grandfather has never been so alive, so around this time…’

     

    Merria reached out the material she thought they must have used.

     

    “If I knew this would happen, I should have known exactly what date it was.” ᴹᵉʳʳᶦᵃ

     

    If I had asked Reukis as we talked, I would have found something by now.

     

    Merria was frustrated and pouted as she put the documents back in out of regret.

     

    Hmm?

     

    When I pulled the documents earlier there weren’t any problems, but now as I placed them back, the documents could no longer fit in.

     

    Merria put her hand in between them in puzzlement.

     

    When I grabbed something that touched my fingertips and pulled it out, something thick was dragged out.

     

    It was a palm-sized notebook with no title written on both the front and back.

     

    Merria turned over the cover without hesitation.

     

    On the very first page, there was a hastily written letter.

     

     

    [𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝒇𝒊𝒓𝒔𝒕 𝒕𝒊𝒎𝒆 𝑰 𝒎𝒆𝒕 𝒉𝒆𝒓 𝒘𝒂𝒔 𝒊𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒎𝒊𝒅𝒅𝒍𝒆 𝒐𝒇 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒏𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕 𝒊𝒏 𝒎𝒚 𝒈𝒂𝒓𝒅𝒆𝒏,

    𝑨𝒏𝒅 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒘𝒐𝒎𝒂𝒏 𝒅𝒊𝒔𝒂𝒑𝒑𝒆𝒂𝒓𝒆𝒅 𝒍𝒊𝒌𝒆 𝒂 𝒎𝒊𝒓𝒂𝒈𝒆.

     

    𝑳𝒆𝒂𝒗𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒕𝒉𝒊𝒔 𝒃𝒆𝒉𝒊𝒏𝒅…]

     

     

    When I turned to the back page, something was written on the rest of the paper.

     

    I couldn’t read content that looked like letters or patterns even when I looked away.

     

    “Pictures? Or codes?”

     

    Something written horizontally and a small dot that looks like a period.

     

    I don’t know what it means, but it certainly seemed to be correct.

     

    “But where have I seen it…”

     

    Merria, who was staring at the writing in the notebook, turned her gaze away.

     

    All she saw was a thin ring on her little finger.

     

    Looking closer, the gold ring had an engraved pattern on it.

     

    I thought it was a simple pattern.

     

    Comparing it with what was written in the notebook, the letters with the same shape were correct.

     

    “As expected… It was the same person.”

     

    Once again convinced, Merria muttered softly.

     

    This notebook would serve as a clue to solve numerous questions.

     

    After contemplating for a while, Merria listened carefully to know if there were any signs of people present outside.

     

    It’s already been a while since I came here.

     

    It was too much to copy or interpret this article leisurely here.

     

    However, it was also dangerous to sneak in again next time.

     

    ‘I just got lucky today, and couldn’t guarantee that the next time would be successful again.’

     

    Eventually, Merria tucked the notebook into the pocket of her dress.

     

    Then I fixed my dress and checked that it was spotless, and then organized the scattered documents neatly.

     

    Fortunately, there were few places I touched, so the cleanup was completed quickly.

     

    Unlike the way she came in, the way out was simple.

     

    Pulling a handle, visible inside the room, the door leading back to the office opened.

     

    After she returned to the office, she made sure that the door was closed properly, and Merria hurried straight away and left.

     

    When I peeked out of the hallway, I immediately made eye contact with Lexie, who was watching nearby.

     

    Lexie was looking around like a spy on an infiltration mission.

     

    ‘You seem to enjoy this situation.’

     

    Lexie, who was absorbed in her situational drama, greeted Merria with happiness.

     

    “Lady! Fortunately, no one passed by.”

     

    “You’ve worked hard. Let’s go back now.”

     

    Merria left the hallway on the second floor, her lips smiling weakly.

     

    That evening, Merria finished dinner early because she was nervous that Themis might have noticed something.

     

    I wanted to stay in my room, but I couldn’t help it and didn’t want to give him the feeling like I’m avoiding him.

     

    As soon as I finished eating, I headed to my room and went to bed early.

     

    I didn’t really fall asleep, I just sent Lexie out of the room after getting ready to sleep.

     

    After carefully closing the curtains, she sat down at her desk with a candle.

     

    When I reached out my hand through the gap inside the table, a small drawer was revealed.

     

    It was a place made using magic stones enchanted with space magic that Serinia had given in the past.

     

    A huge space like ‘Lord’s Room‘ was too unreasonable, but it was enough to fit a small notebook.

     

    As I fumbled inside the drawer, I found the notebook I had left.

     

    The cover, which still had nothing written on it, was black as if it contained darkness.

     

    Merria unfolded it in the middle and looked intently at the notebook.

     

    “I couldn’t read this at all… Was it a code?”

     

    As I turned through the notebook, I found a word that appeared particularly frequently in dozens of articles.

     

    Merria slowly swept the area with her fingers.

     

    “Should I ask Serinia?”

     

    It was the easiest way, but I was reluctant to ask because I couldn’t figure out the content.

     

    If what was written in this notebook was about Reukis’ runaway, the fewer people knew the content, the better.

     

    It wasn’t good in many ways to pull Serenia in this secret.

     

    When I ask Reukis for help, I have to explain how I got hold of this notebook.

     

    Merria agonized over the desk with her fingertips tapping continuously.

     

    ‘Yeah, I better find it out by myself.’

     

    For now, this method was the best.

     

    Merria immediately picked up the paper and began to transcribe the contents of a page of the notebook onto it.
