Kristoff took the watch out of his pocket.
The maximum time he could afford for this was only three minutes.
More than that would be dangerous.
He was never late for an appointment.




Just when he took a step away after muttering so.


―Very funny.


Kristoff stopped walking.
He slowly turned his eyes and stared at the short-haired woman.
Kristoff stopped walking.
The surprising fact was the atmosphere was stirred up as well as people in the crowd.


―What did you just say? Say it again.


Michael threatened her with a fierce look.
However, she didn’t back down one bit.
She looked so confident that he even thought for a moment she was really Dike.


―What’s wrong with a woman entering law school? Did you forget that Dike, the Goddess of Justice, whom Senior Hindenburg adores so much, is a goddess?




―More than that, do you feel the fact that a woman entered law school is more urgent as an issue rather than an unqualified person entering the law school? Are you confident to graduate, having entered the school with the donation from the Count of Hindenburg? You should make sure that you graduate before me who just entered this year.




The dismayed silence dyed the surroundings pale.
Kristoff stared at her face once more.
Only then did she realize that her blue eyes were glinting with anger.


She wasn’t calm.
Her anger was at the top of her head.


Michael, who had a blank look on his face at unexpected words, blushed belatedly.
Upon feeling the gaze of the crowd surrounding him, his face looked even more grim.


―This is how you…….


―Oh, let me just give you a piece of advice.


Her words made her surroundings quiet.
Even Michael didn’t say anything.
She was the only one who spoke calmly.


―It’s childish behavior that even a six-year-old kid wouldn’t do, Senior Hindenburg.


―W-What are you talking about? Why are you interested in that?


Michael had an unfair look on his face.
The onlookers were agitated once more.
Kristoff’s gaze didn’t waver, as if it had been glued on her.


―You’ve been hot on our tails for a week and harassed us.
What’s the point of doing that when you’re not interested in us? So, between Sofia and me, who are you interested in? I say this for your own good, Senior is not my type.


―Who are you to care about such a thing!


The shaking Michael strode at her.
Unable to contain his anger, he raised one hand.
Then he swung it toward her.
She closed her eyes tightly for the upcoming pain.


At that moment.






Michael looked at his arm, which flew quickly and stopped in the middle.
Someone was holding his wrist.
He twisted his eyebrows.




Before he gets to finish his words,


―That’s enough, Michael Hindenburg.


A low, heavy voice engulfed the surroundings.
The voice, which was accustomed to only give orders.


―Hmph, Schneider.


Michael looked back and bit his lower lip.
Onlookers began to murmur about Kristoff’s appearance.


―There’s no need to add fuel to the rumor.
The spreading scandal is already more than enough.
Therefore, don’t tarnish the Count of Hindenburg’s name furthermore.




Michael glared at him.
Anger and inferiority filled his eyes at the same time.
However, he turned his back without saying anything.
It was because he knew that he was no match for Kristoff.


She finally dropped her tense shoulder when she saw Michael’s back moving away from the scene.
A relieved sigh came out of her slightly opened mouth.


She seemed to have a lot of guts, was she scared inside?


When Kristoff’s head was filled with unanswered questions for the woman, she looked back at the smaller woman with a tender expression.


―Are you alright, Sofia?


―I’m fine.
Thank you, Marianne.




Kristoff softly recited her name.
Marianne looked up as if she had heard him call her.


Their eyes met and she bowed slightly.


―Thank you.


Her earlobes seemed to be flush.
Her cold blue eyes seemed to embrace the faint warmth for the first time.
It was as if the star were burning.


―There’s nothing good about provoking Michael.
He’s not someone who threatens with mere words.
He could really hit women.


―If he did, I would have sued him for assault.
I should be treating it like criminal law practice.


Kristoff opened his eyes slightly wider at her words.
The outstanding Kristoff Schneider was speechless.


Barely taking his eyes off her for a moment, he checked his watch once again and clicked his tongue lowly.
Five minutes had passed before he realized it.
The appointment time was tight anyway.
He couldn’t delay his steps any longer.


He hurriedly turned his back from the two women.




Upon being kicked out from the long thought, Kristoff stared at the wall in front of him.
Marianne, who was staring at him with a flushed gaze like a burning star, was not there anymore.


She said she didn’t love Kristoff.
With calm eyes as if she was looking at Michael.


His heart turned cold.
His blood seemed to flow the opposite way.
A reality that he had never thought about before finally began to take shape and weigh on him.


“What should I do, Marianne?”


Kristoff asked in a weak voice, which was so unlike him.
He sounded lost as if he really didn’t know what to do.


For the first time in his life, he felt anxious.
Or, fear.




He recalled life without Marianne.
It was a very dull life.
Humans are adaptable just like animals, so he would get used to the previously boring life he had before, someday.


It might not take longer than he expected.
His life without her was longer than life with her, so it shouldn’t be too difficult.
It was just as if he was going back to the life he once had.


This time, he tried to imagine Marianne’s life without him.
Oh, dear.
