or a moment, then burst into laughter.

“Hahaha, do you mean it, Legion?”

“Yes, she is mine.”

The emperor didn’t expect this cold man would make such a claim.
He couldn’t stop laughing at Legion.
He knew he was desperate, and he claimed her that way.
Doesn’t it seem like he likes the youngest princess with his cold expression?!

“I see, do you like the princess?”

When the emperor asked with a smile, the Duke finally looked back on what he had said.
It was undoubtedly a misleading statement.

“It’s not like that.”

“Really? Come to think of it, isn’t it time for the duke to get married?”

“It’s really not.
Please stop teasing me.”

“I’m not teasing you, though?”

“Your Majesty.”

“Fine, that’s enough.
But this dish is really great.
I want it, too.
Oh, of course I’m talking about the dish, not asking for who the Duke wanted.”

“I know you don’t.”

“You sure?”

The emperor still couldn’t give up teasing the duke.
And even though he knew it was a joke, the duke felt displeasure, and it gnawed on his nerves.
Normally, he would have passed it as if nothing had happened.

While one was laughing and puzzled by his unfamiliar emotions, the food arrived.

“Sweet and sour pork is here again!”

Clap-

The emperor clapped his hands and said,

“Shall we continue to eat?”

The two enjoyed the new portion of the sweet and sour pork.
And after the meal, the emperor said to Luana,

“Please visit the palace from time to time.”

“Huh? Yes.”

Luana answered blankly, and the duke placed his hand on his forehead.

‘I can’t believe you answered so innocently over there.’

Now Legion has to bring Luana to the Imperial Palace from time to time.
Whether or not she knew the duke’s thoughts, Luana smiled face to face with the emperor.

‘Do you really not fall for him?’

Legion looked at Luana suspiciously.
So far, there has not been a single woman who has not fallen in love with the emperor.
Even the women who were destroyed and dragged from their country would sing their love—knowing that it was natural for the duke not to trust Luana.

So he asked in the carriage on the way from the palace to the mansion.

“How was his majesty?”

“He is beautiful!”

Luana replied cheerfully.

“I think I’ve never met such a beautiful person.”

Even though the emperor was described as a beauty in the novel, it seemed like he was not as good as that in reality.
However, the emperor still looks like an angel that has descended.

“Did you fall in love with him?”

“What?”

Luana tilted her head.

‘Fall in love?’

No, Luana didn’t think so.
Because no matter how beautiful he was, Luana also had her own taste.
To put it bluntly, she preferred someone who looked like a demon to an angel, just like the duke in front of her.

“No.”

Luana answered, but the duke still did not seem to believe her.

“Really?”

“It’s really not.
He’s not my taste.”

“Your Majesty is everyone’s taste.”

“For me, Sir Legion is much closer to my taste than to His Majesty.”

The duke was speechless for a moment at the calm words Luana uttered.
As if she didn’t know anything, the duke’s ears burned at the gaze that looked at him.

“You have a strange taste.”

“What do you mean by strange? It’s definitely personal preference.
Please respect my taste!”

“No, you’re really strange.”

The duke buried his face in his hands.

‘What the hell is wrong with her? Does someone usually talk about this in front of the person involved? She is both amazing and ridiculous.’

“It is not.
By the way, are you sick? Your ears are burning.”

“No, I’m not sick.”

“Should I call a doctor just in case?”

“No, it’s not.
Nevermind.”

“Okay!”

Luana sat down again calmly and put her hands on her lap.
Then, after a while, she put her hands together and carefully reached out in front of her.

“So what’s the present?”

“Present?”

“You said you’d give me a present if I didn’t fall in love with His Majesty!”

“Oh, I did.
Is there anything you want?”

“I want a kitchen!”

The answer came quickly.
Since Luana had a unique way of cooking, it was burdensome for her to share the kitchen with others.
She has to dry the fermented soybean lump, and later she has to make the sauce with it.

“I’ll give you an empty annex.
You can use the kitchen there.”

“Thank you!”

She doesn’t want anything grandiose.
All she wants is a kitchen.
The duke laughed unconsciously.

***

Meanwhile, the carriage stopped.
When Luana opened the door and got off, she saw the darkened sky.

“Welcome.”

The gentle-looking older man standing in front of the Duke bowed his head.
Luana bows to the man as well.
After raising her head, she made eye contact with the older man.
His calm eyes shook like a ship facing a storm.

“You have a guest.”

Somehow his voice sounded excited.

“Shall we prepare a room? How long are you staying?”

“She’ll stay for a while.”

“All right.
We’ll do our best to serve you!”

Gradually his voice grew louder.
It seemed that something had been misunderstood, but the duke was so calm that even Luana couldn’t say anything.
So the first day at the duke’s mansion began.
