“Oh my goodness!”

Chocolate! Luana touched the cacao beans with an ecstatic look.

“Oh, you have a good eye.
Would you like to buy cocoa?”

The shopkeeper who saw her spoke to Luana.

“Cocoa?”

“It’s made by grinding cacao beans.
It is imported from another country; you can drink it by mixing it with warm water and adding spices.
That will relieve your fatigue.”

The spices recommended by the shopkeeper were far from sweet.
Come to think of it; she did not eat sweet chocolate when it was first developed.
If so, there was a high possibility that the powder would not be as sweet as cocoa.

“Can I try?”

The shopkeeper readily gave her a little bit of the powder.

“Uck!”

The powder was too much.

‘How do you make chocolate?’

She knew the process of pulverizing the cacao beans, but she didn’t know the specifics of what happened after that.
She knew she would roughly separate the oil and the cacao mass and put it back together.

‘Is it possible to make it by hand?’

Luana had doubts.

‘Can I make it by myself?’

She thought so but didn’t want to give up because she hadn’t tried.
Luana placed her hand on the duke’s arm.

“Please buy it for me!”

The little hand on the duke’s hard arm was hot from her excitement.
At first, the hand that was simply placed on his arm soon began to tap on his arm.

“Please buy it for me!”

“Fine.”

As soon as the Duke said yes, Luana said to bring all the cacao beans and cocoa as soon as possible.

“It’s quite expensive, isn’t it?”

“It’s okay!”

He is a duke.
He can easily pay even though it’s expensive and it was not wrong.
The duke calmly held out the gold coins and bought everything Luana wanted.

She couldn’t carry it alone because the amount was too big, but it was a good shopping.
The shopkeeper was surprised when he heard the delivery address but soon looked convinced.

“Chocolate~ Chocolate!”

Luana has been in a good mood ever since she bought it, and then she became more motivated and started looking around the market.

The market was like a supermarket.
There was nothing missing, and she had a lot of fun walking around.
Was that so? Luana was distracted again.
When she found the avocados, she broke away from the duke and headed there, and her foot was caught on a stone.

“Ahh!”

Luana screamed and closed her eyes tightly, frightened at the imminent ground.
However, the pain did not come as expected.

“Are you okay?”

It was because someone caught Luana.
When she raised her head, she could see the sparkling purple eyes through the deeply pressed hood.

‘The eyes look like jewels.’

As she stared into the eyes in admiration, he helped Luana stand up.

“You have to be careful.”

He spoke in a calm voice and fixed her dress.
Although a stranger touched her, she did not feel strangely offended.

“Thank you.”

Her face turned red because she was embarrassed in front of a stranger.

“No, it’s a matter of course.
You look a lot like your mother, by the way.”

“What?”

“It’s the same face Elanya had when she was young.”

As he said so, the man smiled faintly.

‘Elanya.’

She is of humble origin and is liked by the king, the poor maid who spends her nights and bears his child.
Without much presence, she gave birth to a baby girl and died of excessive bleeding.
Elanya.
It was the name of her mother who gave birth to Luana.

Her nanny used to say Elanya and Luana look alike.
Later, although Luana rarely talked about it because she hated it, the nanny once talked about it.

Luana slowly blinked her eyes.
Why does the stranger she met at the market know her mother’s name?

“How do you know my mother?”

The man replied to the question.

“Because Elanya’s child is also our child.”

At the same time, the man stepped back.
And there was a sword in its sheath that took its place.

“Who are you?”

The duke who approached me asked with a cold voice.
But the man just smiled and didn’t answer.

“Reveal your identity.”

The duke then pulled Luana and set her up behind him.
Everything Luana is curious about hasn’t been answered yet! He tried to step forward again, but was stopped by another person.
A knight hiding in the middle of the market came out.

“Luana, see you next time.”

The man looked at Luana without paying any attention to the duke.
Then, he went straight to the other side of the complex market.
His steps seemed slow, but when he came to his senses, he was nowhere to be seen.
It was bizarre.

“Do you know him?”

“No, I’ve never seen him before.”

“Do you swear?”

The duke’s words moved Luana for a moment, but she cleared her mind and answered.

“Yes.”

The duke’s sharp eyes turned toward the man’s disappearance.
