opportunity.
When else would I touch such a handsome man?’

Luana drew up the corners of her mouth and gently touched the Duke’s chest.

“Are you sure you’re going to let me go?”

Luana said so and lowered her head a little more.
Her flowing hair tickled the back of the peacock’s hand.
After holding her breath for a moment, he removed her arm and looked up at Luana.

His red eyes reminiscent of rubies were darker than usual.
As if holding back something from her, his gaze looked down on her and scanned the nape of her neck.

Luana got goosebumps on her spine.

“I warn you one last time.
Get away from me.”

The low voice felt only sweet.
Instead of answering, Luana raised the corners of her mouth and laughed.

“It’s too late now.”

The Duke’s large hands holding his sword, suddenly held Luana’s waist.
His hands hugged her waist.
The only thing that blocked the skin that started to get hot was their clothes.

Luana was a little scared to make intimate contact with a man’s body for the first time in her life.

‘I-I think… I made a big mistake.’

Luana thought of that belatedly, but it was already too late, as the Duke said.
She couldn’t get out of his hand.
Her physical strength was different compared to the Duke, as Luana had never exercised properly since birth.

The Duke’s lips came closer and touched Luana’s ear.
Her ears tickled at the sensation she felt between his gaping lips.
The subtle feeling made her want to put her hand up and rub her ears.

“Sir Legion?”

Luana’s heart was pounding.
However, due to their chests being closed to each other, she couldn’t tell if it was her heartbeat or the Duke’s.
The body heat seemed to be transferring from his strangely hot body to hers.
She felt like there was a fire in the depths of her body.

When she looked up at the Duke slowly, she saw bright red eyes half-closed.

‘Beautiful.’

As Luana lost her mind for a moment and stared at him blankly, the Duke’s red eyes curved.

‘He is smiling.’

Luana smiled at him without realizing it.
Then a voice that still felt sweet whispered,

“I don’t know if you’re a fool or not.”

“I’m not a fool!”

‘What are you talking about to break the atmosphere?’

She tried to protest fervently but to no avail.

“No, you’re stupid.
That’s why you’re doing this.”

Although he was called the Emperor’s Sword in his home country, he knew that people called him differently in other countries, such as The Emperor’s Dog or Legion The Slaughter.

However, it was only funny when he thought about the names.

“I’m not a fool!”

“Yes, then you’ll be one.”

“No!”

“Well, that’s not what’s important right now.”

“Then what is?”

“You don’t know?”

The Duke pointed to the bottle that Luana had snatched.

“We have to deal with the phenomenon caused by this.”

The Duke, who said so, was still trying hard to breathe.

“Oh, my God.”

Luana only belatedly realized what kind of drug it was.
After realizing it, she had no choice but to cry out for God and clench her fist.
All the curses she knew ran through her mind.

‘You damned King!’

It wasn’t poison, but it was just as troublesome as that.
Even though Luana is an adult and the Duke is an adult, the King gave this kind of drug of his own will! This situation made it impossible to attack the Duke.
She will be a confirmed criminal with no excuse if she goes further from here.

Luana groaned and pushed the Duke’s chest.

“It’s a misunderstanding!”

So Luana had to get out of this situation first.

“Everyone says it’s a misunderstanding.”

The Duke ran his hand through her narrow back.

“Ah!”

Luana covered her mouth with one hand as the sound leaked from her mouth unknowingly.

“It really is a misunderstanding!”

She tried to explain it again, but she fell over the Duke’s chest again by his touch.
It was the first time she knew the weak part of her body.

“Everyone says it’s a real misunderstanding.”

“It really is.”

Even as she claimed her innocence with tears in her eyes, he showed no sign of believing it.
Fortunately, however, the Duke didn’t seem to intend to do anything to Luana.
He slowly loosened his grip on Luana, and she got up and straightened up her messy clothes.

Luana’s face had sunk so deep that she could not believe what had happened just now.

“I’ll remember that for now.”

It was not usually scary because the Duke, not anyone else, said he would remember it as a misunderstanding.
But that didn’t mean he couldn’t do anything Luana could do right now.

“Go outside.”

“Yes, yes!”

Luana quickly rose from her seat and ran out of the room.
Her face flushed red from the embarrassment that came after her belatedly.

‘What did I do?’

Looking at her, the knight who was guarding the door asked,

“Why are you running out all of a sudden?”

“I want to sleep outside!”

“Outside?”

The knight looked at Luana suspiciously.
