The Beginning NO.2: My Eve – translated by Raylight (proofread by Trespasserby; C/E edited by lucathia)
”Bill, aside from me, who do you think is the most important person to Ah Ye?”
“It’s Kyle.” The words came from Kyle with no hesitation.
The secretary gave a few awkward coughs, and then said, “I was just correcting you that my name is Kyle and not Bill. That was not an answer to your question.”
“Do you think that correcting me is more important than answering my question? Bill?”
Kyle immediately answered, “Undoubtedly, it is the butler—If you ignore Dr. An Te Qi.”
As expected, it is that vampire! I said spitefully, “So even the fiancée is not as important as the butler?”
“… You really are ignoring Dr. An Te Qi. He is just right here, though he is fast asleep on the sofa.”
“What did you say? Say it louder?”
That Kyle is really getting more and more audacious. Should I demote him… No, no matter how much I demote him, his job would still be the same, which is being a secretary at my side, right?
I should lower his salary—Damn, previously he seemed to have mentioned having earned some money from some stocks. I forgot how much it was, but I recall it was several times over his yearly bonus.
It’s probably better to just drag him out and give him a good beating. But if he took the chance to apply for sick leave, then these documents… Giving him a good scolding seems to be the way to go.
My face darkened as I growled, “Bill, you really have gotten rather auda—”
“Sun Emperor, there is a special reason as to why the young master would value the butler as thus.”
To think you even interrupted me—Hm? What reason does Ah Ye have?
Kyle seemed unruffled even now, and said, “I believe that the existence of the butler is relatively unique to the young master. For him, Charles Endelis is not just a butler, but also a ‘similar existence’ to himself. Both of them are stuck in the boundary between humans and non-humans—”
I interrupted him in a towering rage, “Ah Ye is human!”
“Yes! I was wrong. It was a momentary slip of the tongue.” Kyle admitted his mistake with no hesitation.
Unforgivable! This time, don’t even bother trying to give an excuse!
Kyle sincerely said, “Sun Emperor, I truly do not suspect the young master as such. The young master is the one who suspects himself. If you wish to punish me, you can demote me, suspend my salary, or beat me up. But please, finish listening to me.”
