Imagine having a crush on your cousin's butler
“Sebastian!” You called through the halls as you wondered. “Oh Sebastian."
"Yes my lady?” He appeared behind you out of nowhere, he always did that and it made you wonder, how he did it.
“I was hoping you wouldn’t mind some company, as much as I love my sister she is quite annoying when it comes to her….obsession with our cousin."
"My dear, you must remember they are betrothed."
"And it is my little sister and my cousin. Honestly does no one see the…"
"If you would like Madam [Y/N], you may accompany me.” He said as he walked past you, who followed close behind.
“Madam [Y/N], how is the young man you were once betrothed to?” He asked, his fist slightly forming at the thought of you marrying someone else.
“Oh him. I told him he would be better if he found a wife in someone else. He was quite boring and he liked sitting around reading poetry. Which don’t get me wrong, I also enjoy poetry, but there is more to life then that."
You would never admit that your heart was longing for someone else, someone who was not your status, someone in this very manor, someone who shared the same feelings you did.
"I could not agree more madam [Y/N].” He smiled.
“So Sebastian have you found love yet?"
"I am afraid my dear that the only love I have found is the love of servicing the young Earl.” He answered as he got a whiff of your perfume, honey and rose.
“Well maybe I can convince my dear cousin to let you accompany me to a ball, find you a decent madam."
"And if I were to already be interested in a young madam.” He asked as he looked to the left, and saw you staring, he could see the very soul you bore in your eyes, innocent yet independent. He could see the traces of gold in your soul, and he smiled at you.
“Well she must be one hell of a madam, if she has one hell of a butler in love with her.” You felt a ping of sadness, not even thinking it could be you.
“She is my love, she is.”
