Grave - so serious that you feel worried
Derived word – gravely
Alice felt a little irritated at the Caterpillar's making such VERY short remarks, and she drew herself up and said, very gravely, 'I think, you ought to tell me who YOU are, first.'(Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll)
Granet bowed gravely and without any shadow of embarrassment. ( The Kingdom of the Blind by Oppenheim, E. Phillips)
Taking from his hat a three-cornered parcel, he unfolded a handsome saffrona rose, which he gravely presented to her. ( Devil's Ford by Harte, Bret)
He was so gravely in earnest that Francine burst out laughing.(  I Say No by Collins, Wilkie)
