use of such a matter.

Simple travel arrangements were finished.
Claire picked up a bag of clothes herself.
When she will reach the capital and stop by the inn, she was going to burn the pieces of clothes little by little.

The old butler carried Elisha wrapped in a blanket and laid her down on the wagon.
Claire followed him into the carriage.

The dress that doesn’t fit her length got stuck in her foot.
It was only then that she realized that she had not yet changed what she had worn in Erich’s mansion.

A moment of miscellaneous thoughts intervened.
But she shook her head off the idea.

It was not time to think about the mistakes that had already been made, the past.

Erich Klausener thought that time did not pass that day.

‘Is it right to just hold on to her?’

As usual, he sat down at the tea table with the morning newspaper brought by the butler, but the letters seldomly caught his eyes.

There’s nothing good about Claire’s long stay in his own mansion.
He was a person who led a regular life and was always exposed to people’s gaze.

At the end of the day arguing it couldn’t help but be known when seen.
It didn’t hurt Erich himself.
But it will be an unaffordable scandal for Claire.

‘What am I worried about?’

Claire would handle her job 20 times muchsmartly than an average person.

He still didn’t understand what she was so angry about.
Of course, it was out of order.
A decent man should never kiss a single lady before proposing.

But didn’t Claire like it, too? Was she really drunk and crazy last night?

Well, Claire originally hated him.
Erich didn’t quite understand what she was upset about with him.

It was Claire’s bad habit to be angry, and to be rude and call him duke whenever she was angry, with blazing eyes

Whenever that happened, Erich couldn’t take his eyes off her.

He put down the newspaper and covered his eyes with his hands.

It was then.
he could feel the door opening.

“Pabel, do you have any news?”

“What news are you waiting for, Erich?”


It was Louisa, the mother of the Duke of Klausener, who came in.

Although she was his stepmother, Erich didn’t particularly like or dislike her.
When his father remarried, he was seven years old, but he already had a good understanding of his lineage, rights, and duties.

Therefore, he did not try to find his mother’s affection in Louisa, and did not refuse it.
Because he knew that someone had to fill the position of the Duchess.

Louisa was kind to him.
Erich also treated her with such respect.
It is necessary to give back what he received.

But now it feels cumbersome.
Even so, he couldn’t scold his servant for letting his mother in.

Erich sighed quietly to himself, out of earshot, and rose from his seat.

“What can I do for you?”

“What do you mean? I’m at home, so I was curious because you didn’t come out to thedining room.
Of course I thought you would have gone out early in the morning.”

An inquisitive glance swept Erich’s face.
Erich calmly passed through the gaze.

“I’ve had some work.”

“But you were not doing it in the study as always…… Were you doing it in your bedroom?

“It’s a private matter, mother.”

“No, of course, this mother understands.
You’re a grown man too, so there must be some privacy that you can’t tell your mother.
… …I heard that Pabel bought the dress that was displayed in Edelweiss, did you order it?”

“Didn’t I tell you it was a private matter?”

Louisa flinched.
However, it was too important for her to not ask and move on.

“So,do you have a lover? Are you thinking about marriage?”

Erich put the teacup down on the table.
Louisa was being stingy, and without realizing it, she withdrew her body and bowed her head.

“It’s private.
I’ll let you know when something is decided.”

Marriage is a family union, and it is the parents job to decide who they are with.
But Erich said that calmly and got up from his seat.

Talking like this, I thought I should settle with Claire.
Now that it’s been nearly half a day, she must have cooled down.

Then she will understand how obvious his proposal is.
It’s because she’s a smart girl.

It was then.

“Your majesty!”

Cried the secretary, opening the door without permission.

“What’s going on?”

Asked Erich, glaring at the secretary with blue eyes.
The secretary took a breath and said quickly.

“The Crown Prince is dead.”


“A while ago, a body was found in the forest of Modral.
I think it was an assassination.
The two servants were found dead together, and the escort driver is missing, but we’re looking for him.”

Erich took a deep breath.

“I’m going to enter the palace.”


The secretary ran out to get ready.
Louisa took Erich by the arm.

“Wait, will you be all right?”

“Let’s talk later.”

Erich swept away her hand and hurried outside.
