My Blind Master chapter 1

There’s No Such Thing As Free Lunch

It’s the start of an unbelievable thing.

  • That is, to take care of a certain noble.
  • No need for an introduction letter
  • A healthy person in their 20s (gender-neutral)
  • Someone who can live-in
  • Other details will be told during the interviewー

In contrast to the not so many requirements, the salary is very high. However, I’m a bit worried about it because the work announcement doesn’t come down at all, so it means that people must be constantly quitting. However, it’s not a time for me to grumble about something trivial.

“I…I’m going to do it!”

I accepted this job so quickly that it made the employee of the employment agency surprised.

The job of a live-in maid of the renowned House of Wendelー

“Please do not go outside by any means.”

“Haa…”

I wonder if there’s a ruler on her back.

The woman straightened her back to the point that she made me think of such, she taught me about the layout and the rules of the house, while walking passed the beautifully trimmed garden as if she didn’t even want to waste one minute of her time.

The person that interviewed me is also this person in her early-thirtiesーTrill-san.

After I explained my work experience briefly, I was hired immediately. I didn’t even have time to happily shout out ‘I did it!’, Trill-san said that she’s going to guide me to my ‘workplace’.

When I arrived in front of my workplace,

“There’s no such thing as free lunch”

I recalled that phrase.

“This way.”

“…Eh.”

I open my mouthーagape.

It takes around 10 to 20 minutes to walk further and further into the garden of the huge mansion.

When I left the ground that could even be called a forest, there was a mansion quietly standing there as if it had been forgotten.

That’s right. Somehow, there’s another mansion within a mansion.

Moreover, different from the main mansion, this mansion looked old and like it’s decaying somehow.

Different from the garden before, there were a lot of weeds growing in here. The window also looked like it has not been wiped for many years, there’s even some white stain on it. What’s with this place?

“Ummmm…”

She seemed to ignore my confused look. Trill-san indifferently takes out a key and inserts it into the majestic looking door.

She holds the handle with the handkerchief in her hand and opens the door.

“Go greet Lowell-sama first.”

“Ye..Yes.”

Lowell-sama.

He’s the person who lives in this mansion, the new master of mine.

There’s this nasty smell coming from him.

The inside of the mansion that I stepped in didn’t betray my expectations. It was filled with dust and smell from the mold.

And what smelled the most is actually Lowell-sama, himself…I know it’s very rude, but I almost vomited.

“M…My name is Franelle…Pl..Please, nice to meet you.”

After, I finished my greeting with a nasal voice, somehow, Lowell-sama who was sitting on the chair near the window slightly nodded.

“Nice to meet you.”

Even though it’s noon, the room was dim as there was no light and the curtain was also closed. I, who was hindered by the smell of the wall and stopped only a few steps from the door, I wasn’t able to see Lowell-sama’s expression.

His hair is black, but it seems like it hasn’t been cut for so many years as it was long enough to reach the waist. Moreover, his beard is also long.

ーIs he a hermit? No, maybe he’s an artist.

As I got curious, all my thoughts stopped when I felt Trill-san’s icy stare.

“Please don’t do anything more than you need to do.”

I was reminded of that many times when I was being hired.

“Then, I will leave it to you. If you have something you don’t understand, please come and ask me.”

“Ye…Yes!”

I kept holding onto the key of this mansion, then I left behind Lowell-sama’s room.

The same as when she went up the stairs, Trill-san went down the spiral stairs at a fast pace with the sound of her clicking shoes.

I tucked up my skirt and walked slowly as I didn’t want to step on it as I hadn’t gotten used to wearing it. The hand-rail I grabbed was piled up with dust.

“As I’ve told you before, it’s okay even if you don’t wash the clothes that often. And for your room, you can choose whatever room you want.”

“Is it really okay? Every room looks so splendid…”

“Yes. You just need to take care of Lowell-sama’s food and his personal belongings, and you’re free to do whatever you want.”

“Ye..Yes! Thank you so much! I will do my best!”

“And Lowell-sama is blind.”

“Eh?”

“He is blind.”

“Eh.”

Maybe she’s been saying this for so many timesーTrill-san looked fed up and sighed. Before I knew it, she stopped going down the stairs.

“I’m saying that he is blind. That’s why if anything happens please help him. He’s well-behaved, so he won’t kick up a racket. He’s still the younger brother of the head of the family, so please don’t let him get injured.”

“…Umm.”

“If you’re going to quit, you have to work here for at least two weeks before quitting. It takes time to find a new person after all.”

“Ah, yes.”

“Then, I will be going now.”

After Trill-san said all she wanted to say, she left the stunned me behind and quickly went away.

“What a…crude explanation.”

My whisper just disappeared into the open ceiling.
