I Become The Wife of The Male Lead - Chapter 12
Chapter 12: Kind and Cruel
Recently, the attacks from monsters had been significantly reduced. Maybe it was because Sigren had appeared. Thanks to that, I was able to spend some leisurely time with him. However, that didn’t mean we had a friendly relationship. What I had heard so far was his name, which of course I already knew.
“Your wound, is it okay now?” I stretched my hand towards Sigren’s wounds.
“Don’t touch me as you please” He snapped as usual.
I gave him a little sullen look at the snappy response that was still as cold as ever. Indeed, it was really hard to be acquainted with him in the villain’s body.
“If you’re still in pain, you need to tell me even if you don’t like me.”
Hearing my words, Sigren looked at me like he saw something strange. I felt that these days, he often looked at me like this. ‘Am I that weird?’
He opened his mouth reluctantly. “You are weird.”
Sigren then said in a sarcastic tone. “Why do you care so much about me? Is it the compassion of a young lady raised in the castle? Like the pity of picking up a dog or a cat in the rain.”
“It’s not like that.”
Recently, I learned that Sigren seemed to roughly assume that Abel was my relative who was taking care of me. In other words, I was regarded as an ordinary aristocratic girl who stayed in the castle. Perhaps, I was so misunderstood because of the polite manners of the people calling me “My Lady”
When I thought about it, he seemed to be annoyed that he had to rely on a girl of his age, who, unlike him, he thought, grew up to be precious and seems to know nothing.
My pride is somewhat hurt.
“I don’t know what you think of me, but I didn’t bring you with such a light heart.”
Of course, I felt guilty that I wanted us to get close for my future insurance. However, in my defense, there was also an affection that existed for him. But still, it was fortunate that we had met not as enemies and instead, could build a healthy friendship.
“Why not just because I wanted to save you?”
“Just after one meeting? With no reason?”
“Right. You might have thought of it too.”
In that six-year-later period, Sigren was well-defined in many ways. So, I’d roughly assumed it was the effect of his childhood. Thus, I was spitting on the thought that there might be such a side to my intentions.
Unexpectedly, Sigren’s expression was firm.
“I have never done that. People like you, who grew up fine, are the ones that like to think that kind of thing.”
At this point, I was starting to feel nauseous. What the heck, I was definitely one of the fighters, I was not the girl who lived well in a castle.
“Wait. Sig—. I’m simply staying here because…”
“May I come in?” Someone knocked on the door. It was the voice of the healer who’d examined Sigren.
Then, a gentle-grandfather-looking came into the room.
“You’re here today, Lady Fiona.”
The elderly gentleman was in charge of the health of the people in the castle. Because he was fairly old, he treated me as his own granddaughter.
“You must be getting close quickly because you are the same age. Hahaha.”
It was needless to say that this caused Sigren to frown at his words. He looked at me and said coldly. “You’ve got to get out of here.”
“I wonder if your wound is healing well. Could I stay here?”
“You? I’m glad you didn’t faint when you saw the wound.” Sigren was cynical.
Haha. It wouldn’t be so. I went around on the battlefield. I’ve seen organs protruding or a body cut in half. Many times, I made the monsters run away. I wouldn’t be stunned enough by seeing an injury on Sigren’s body.
Then Sigren said again.”Get out quickly. I can’t change my bandage because of you.”
I was curious about his condition, but at this point, I couldn’t help it. Sigren had to take off his top to change his bandage. He might be ashamed to take off his top in front of a girl of his age. When I think about it, he seems to have a cute side.
So, I shrugged lightly and left the room. “Okay. I’m leaving.”

I didn’t intend to go back to my room right away. It wouldn’t take long to change the bandages, so I waited meanwhile in front of Sigren’s room.
I wanted to tell him something, but I had to leave before getting the chance to say it since the grandpa-healer came.
A fine young lady? I was working hard. Why does he hate me? I pondered.
As a matter of fact, I never thought about Sigren’s personality during his childhood, so I didn’t get any sense of it. Due to that, I’d only so far imagined what his personality would’ve been like so I was now worried about how to deal with him being so cold.
‘Is it because my intention is slightly impure?’
However, honestly, in fact, I wanted to get closer to Sigren because I felt sorry and wanted to give him the affection he didn’t get in his childhood. Yet, he seemed to be vigilant with no reason. I expected that it would be hard to get along with him because of his past, but I didn’t know it would be this bad. I felt like I brought a kitten that was at maximum alertness.
But for some reason, if I got too close and his impression of me worsens, my future would be a disaster.
At that time, the grandpa-healer came out of the room. It seemed the treatment was over.
“Is it over?”
“Yes, but…” the grandpa-healer’s face was dark.
Was Sigren in a bad condition?
“Is there any problem?”
“No, the recovery from injury is going very well. But.” Grandpa healer said hesitantly.
I grabbed him by the sleeve of his clothes and hurried him. “What is it? If it’s about Sigren, just tell me.”
At my words, the grandpa-healer glanced at the door of the room with a sign of sympathy.
“I heard he was from the mercenary corps. But I wonder if it’s okay if he goes back to there after everything goes better. He didn’t tell me anything, but all over his body…”
The more I listened to the grandpa-healer, the stiffer my neck became. I felt like I heard a story that I shouldn’t hear. My heart pounded with shock. I rushed into Sigren’s room.
