you going to give her just one night of freedom?”

“Is it just one night?”

The Duke looked more sensitive than usual.

“It’s just one night, please allow her.”

Even the emperor put his words; the duke could not refuse.
He looked at Luana with his usual sullen expression.
Luana wanted to refuse, but she didn’t dare to refuse her in this situation.
Above all, Ingrid is looking at her with a sad expression!

“One night would be fine, wouldn’t it?”

Then the duke leaned over and whispered in her ear.

“Then how can I sleep?”

In an instant, Luana almost jumped from the spot.

‘Don’t whisper in my ear!’

Her hands automatically covered her ears as they tickled.

‘Wasn’t you supposed to be hugging me out of fear of me running away? What do you mean by ‘How can I sleep’?’

Fortunately, Ingrid didn’t seem to hear that.
Judging by the expression on the emperor’s face, he seemed to have heard it.

‘No, whatever you hear, it’s a misunderstanding.’

Luana shook her head desperately, but it didn’t seem to work.
The emperor had already understood everything.

‘No, no!’

She wanted to grab him by the collar and shake him, but he was the emperor.
She had no choice but to grab the teacup out of frustration.

“Just let me sleep alone for one night!”

She responded by murmuring to the duke at the slightest resentment.
The shadow of a large drooping dog seemed to be seen by the duke, who lowered his head, but it must have been an illusion.

“Then it’s decided that way, so only the duke should go back.”

“Today, I will stay at the Imperial Palace.”

“Are you nervous?”

“Yes, I’m nervous.”

“My my.
A lord who can’t trust his person.”

The emperor rose from his seat with a smirk.

“Then take a rest.”

Even after the emperor left, the duke stayed there for a long time.
It was after Ingrid’s order that he left.

“I want to be with my sister from now on, so please leave.”

Only then did he reluctantly go out with heavy steps.
As soon as the emperor and the duke left, Ingrid immediately approached Luana.
She held her hands and asked with a serious look.

“Luana, do you perhaps like that guy?”

“What?”

What a shocking story! Luana shook her head violently.

“No! I don’t like him!”

The duke was the second male lead in the novel, and he fell in love with Ingrid.

‘Do I like such a person? What nonsense.’

“Absolutely not!”

“Really?”

“I mean it! He doesn’t even like me in the first place!”

“What? So who does he like? Are you saying he like other women while acting like this to you?”

She told the truth, but Ingrid seemed to be unhappy with that.

‘Yes, he likes another woman, and that person is my sister.’

It was like seeing her real sister.

‘She has done nothing special for me, but how can she be so affectionate? Is it because she’s the female lead?’

“It’s not me, anyway.”

“Then I’m glad, but be careful.
You should never fall in love with him.
Never.”

Ingrid’s eyes were shining with determination.
She looked into those eyes and thought.

‘Maybe I’ve been mistaken all this time?’

“Sister, do you by any chance love the emperor?”

“Me? Are you crazy? To love that crazy guy? Now I’m bending over out of necessity, but I’m never going to love someone like that.”

Ingrid said that firmly.
She seemed far from the female lead in the novel who fell in love.

‘If it’s the way it’s supposed to be, shouldn’t you slowly get over it and agonize over him?’

But when Luana heard what she said, her words seemed to have no love.

“How about in the future?”

“I have work to do in the future! I can’t do that here.”

She spoke so bright that Luana forgot what to say for a moment.

“I only tell this to you, but I will bring the kingdom back to life.”

Did the heroine in the novel thought of this? No, she didn’t.
As she writhes in agony, she falls into the imperial trap she cannot escape, and losing all her will, she falls in love and has a child.
Can a person change like that? No, it was impossible.

“You really intend to do it.”

“Of course!”

Her deep blue eyes gleamed with a will.

‘Is this really a novel?’

The question that had been brought up throughout this time is here again.
Maybe this is another reality? Look at Ingrid.
She was already moving differently from the story.
If so, the duke or the emperor might move differently than in the story.

Just as Ingrid does not love the emperor, the duke may not love Ingrid.
As soon as she thought about it, the corners of her mouth were about to rise.

“I’ll keep your secret.”

“Thank you, Luana.”

“No, it’s alright.”

Luana was finally able to smile.

“I hope your dream comes true.”

“Yeah, when that time comes, I’ll save you too.”

“I’m fine.”

“Nope! Now I have come to realize the value of freedom.
So I want to give you freedom too.”

She couldn’t bear to say no to that.
So instead of answering, Luana gently hugged Ingrid.

‘Cheer up!’

Instead of being unable to help, she prayed that Ingrid’s wish might come true.
