ready thrown into the air.

Under the pull of gravity, the heirloom fell helplessly—-

—to the man’s face.


Unaware of Cherryl’s loud heart beating in the silence, the ring shot out like a slingshot and bounced straight unto this man’s straight forehead!

She had hit him.



The sound of her silver ring rolling on the floor felt unusually cold in the silent night.

At that moment, the man with strange-colored eyes didn’t blink as he stared at Cherryl.

Did he not purposely avoid the ring so he could look at her?

Heart pounding uncontrollably, Cherryl quickly hid behind the wall.

It wasn’t enough to miss her precious mother’s belongings but to hit a man with it on the forehead?

Cherryl clenched her fist and hit her head hard.

Yes, she made that mistake, but she found something surprising.

“…Lucy, did you just see it?”


“That man’s face.”

When the light from the lamp had lit his face, she witnessed how he looked like in a flash.

He was incredibly handsome!

Even if he had seen seven long arms in the background, her jaw still dropped with admiration.

His smooth black hair contrasted his pale white skin and shining golden eyes.

He was as sensual as a black and dangerous beast that had turned into a human.

“It was so dark and scary that I couldn’t see anything.” Lucy cried from her fear of encountering bandits for the first time.

Cherryl heard a knock on the door just in time.

“The guests have arrived.
Please come downstairs when you’re ready, My Lady.”

She rubbed her cold palms against her skirts to control her nervousness.

This wasn’t the appropriate time to admire the appearance of the male lead because she might be sold to an unknown man later—another member of these bandits.

“Lucy, can you go outside and find my ring? You can find it close to the door, but you’ll need a lamp because it’s too dark out there.”

“Yes, My Lady.
Are you going to be okay?”

“I have to be.”

It would be a lie if she said she wasn’t afraid of meeting these dangerous men as they walked towards her mansion without a single word.

She wouldn’t allow herself to be scared.

‘I need to come up with measures in case I had guessed correctly.
She could run away, or….’

Cherryl was so nervous that she could only think of one way right now.

‘It wasn’t a bad plan to steal her father’s money and run away.’ She thought as she slowly descended the stairs while clutching her skirts.

‘I’ve been in the worst environment so that I can survive anywhere.’

Her past life experience had proven to help her try to survive her day-to-day life.

Cherryl walked firmly into the dining hall, and as she reached the wide-open arch, she faltered to a halt.
