t now, even Marianne seemed to have given up.


After a brief sigh, Marquis Schneider casted his eyes at her again.


“Did Kristoff agree to have a divorce? Considering he’s……”


He couldn’t speak furthermore and shut up on his own.
The marquis’ brows were slightly distorted while thinking about Kristoff’s nature.


If it’s him, he would never have agreed.


Marianne quietly replied, as if she had guessed what he couldn’t say.
Her voice was calm and composed all the time.
She implied that it didn’t happen accidentally.


“That’s why I tossed the divorce papers and ran away.”


“Run away……”


Marquis Schneider opened his eyes wide as if he had heard something unexpected.
He finally realized why Marianne was wearing mourning clothes and sighed.


No, it was more like a laugh than a sigh.


The sound of laughter soon made its way between the crevice of his teeth.
It seemed like a genuine surprise for him that Marianne, who was gentle and chaste, turned out to have such a side of herself.


He tilted his upper body forward and his gray eyes glistened with interest.


“Did you say you ran away? How did you get rid of the servants? They wouldn’t have gotten away from your side at all times.”


Marianne had an awkward expression on her face upon hearing his words, and quietly unraveled the things she had done.
While listening carefully to her story, the marquis burst into admiration upon the part in which she passed in front of Gunter after escaping from the lounge.


Her cheeks glowed even more awkwardly.
Her cheeks turned even redder upon feeling even more awkward than before.




After hearing the whole story, Marquis Schneider burst into laughter again.
Then, he resetted his expression right away and stared at her with a serious look.


The appearance reminded her of Kristoff at first glance.
Kristoff would probably look like him after he grew over the years and became rounder a bit more.


“All right, what is the reason that my granddaughter-in-law, who can barely escape from Kristoff, came to see me? Seeing that she came to collect the last debt I owed to her, it must not be an ordinary request.”


As expected of Marquis Schneider, Marianne slowly took a deep breath.
He knew why Marianne came here.


“Yes, there’s something I would like you to help me with.”


“What if I pretend to help you and contact Kristoff behind your back?”


Marquis Schneider asked, as if wondering.
Marianne gazed at him thoughtfully and slowly pursed her lips.


“When I married Kristoff, My Lord, you congratulated us on our marriage and said that once in a lifetime, you would do us a favor, no matter what it takes.”

He was reminded by his old promise.
He narrowed his eyes and nodded as if recalling it.


“After graduating from law school, you decided to give up on your dream and focus on helping your husband.
It was a sign of my own sincerity in appreciating it.”


As he said, Marianne was one of the first women to enter law school.
Conservative universities have opened their doors for women for the first time in line with the social situation, and she even entered the school with excellent grades.


Marianne has always wanted to be a lawyer or a police officer.
The lighthouse that reveals the truth, Marianne’s heart pounded upon those words.
Some of the women colleagues who graduated with her have already established themselves as lawyers.


However, Marianne decided to give up on her dream and lived as Mrs.
Schneider after graduation.
She didn’t feel unfair or dissatisfied about it.
As she loved Kristoff.


She thought her life as Mrs.
Schneider was quite worth it.


“Yes, I do.
I’m still grateful to you.”


Marianne continued with his eyes down.


“I know the fact that the promise coming out of the marquis’ mouth is never blank.
Therefore, I hope the marquis still keeps them now.”


Marquis Schneider’s eyebrows twitched at the way she spoke.
He stared at Marianne with a gaze filled with unfamiliarity as if he were looking at something he never knew before.


The thought that he might have been the only one who thought to know her well crossed his mind.


The picturesque woman who assists her husband in a quiet and calm manner.
She was, indeed, the perfect fit to have a seat beside Kristoff.


However, today, the unexpected appearance of Marianne undoubtedly struck the marquis right in the back of his head.


However, it wasn’t meant to be offensive.
He meant it was quite cool.
He also felt very pleased to think about how his grandson would show up in the future.


But then again, it’s time for him to suffer hardship in life as well.
A man who has never been let down before has no profundity.


“At that time, I thought you would ask for land or jewelry, but I didn’t think you’d be in such a difficult situation.
However, I can’t take back the promise I’ve made…… so, tell me what can I do for you, Marianne?”


Marquis Schneider asked brightly.
After staring at him for a while, Marianne swallowed anxiously and finally brought up her intention.


“In here, please try with all your might to get me into the Blauberg Police Agency.”




Marquis Schneider closed his lips with a face that looked as if he had been struck on the back of his head.
The crease between his eyebrows deepened a bit more.


It wasn’t long before he had a frown on his face.


“Police Agency?”


And then, Marquis Schneider asked again as if he didn’t quite understand yet, “Did you just say police agency?” in which Marianne replied with a nod.


“Yes, My Lord.
You just have to state that you recommend me to the police chief.
Since I graduated from law school, I won’t be eliminated due to lack of education.”


Blauberg was Marquis Schneider’s territory.
Even if times had changed and he couldn’t wield absolute power as in the past, he still influenced the area almost as strongly as before.


It wasn’t just the police chief.
Influential figures such as the mayor and local judges also bowed their heads toward him.
Schneider was still alive and well.
No, they are in a more glorious moment than in the past.


Considering the fact that money begets money, it wasn’t a new thing to know Schneider Family became one of the richest people in the kingdom.


Furthermore, Marquis Schneider turned Blauberg, which was nothing more than a port, into the most prosperous trading town within the kingdom.
Kristoff’s skill might have been inherited from his grandfather.




Marquis Schneider, who was merely reciting the word like a parrot, once again frowned.
His eyes, which reflected years of experience in life, scanned her up and down.


“With such a woman’s body?”
