“I see.”

Duke Cassiar took a step back and noticed Kyle standing there watching the meal.
The Duke seemed to be questioning as to why Kyle didn’t stop me until I did this.

“Duke, would you like me to prepare the meal again now?”

Kyle broke out in a cold sweat as he was startled by the Duke’s stare.
Whatever I did, I was not going to put Kyle in a bad situation because of me.

“It’s alright.
Kyle, you made this delicious dish.
I can’t believe you want to throw away the food you worked so hard to prepare.
The Duke is not such a heartless person.”

I praised and encouraged Kyle prior to Duke Cassiar’s approval.
So that he did not become a heartless person.

“It must have been hard, but take a rest.
Don’t worry, I’ll be here.”

In case he did, I took Kyle to a location where he wouldn’t be seen by Duke Cassiar.
Kyle left after watching the Duke’s eyes until the end.

“More than that, Duke, don’t you think you’re going to eat anything? It’s a vegetable-based dish that I’ve been bringing for the Duke since early in the morning.”

I fixed my gaze on Duke Cassiar.

His actions were not gentle, despite his gentle words.
Maybe my eyes were deceiving me, but the Duke took the dish and stuffed it into his mouth with a glum expression.

“How do you feel about eating a dish made with love?”

“I feel like a rabbit.”

I gave the Duke a bright smile as he chewed his vegetables and expressed his dissatisfaction.

“That’s great.
Rabbits enjoy vegetables, so eat them while in a good mood.”

The Duke had a half-crazed expression on his face when he looked at me.
I worked in a service position in my previous life, even if it didn’t appear that way.

I met a wide variety of people while selling cosmetics.
Dealing with the truth was the best course of action.
It was so hard to deal with the truth.

“Look over there.
The Duke really brought the madam.”

“She is even beautiful.
How did the Duke bring such an angel?”

“The Duke has never brought a woman to the mansion.
Isn’t it possible it’s a ghost?”

They seemed to be hiding behind the wall and watching me.
Were these the people who worked here? It was nice to be told that I was an angel, but I got the impression Kyle and the others regarded me as an unrealistic being.

By the way, the fact that I was the first woman Duke Cassiar brought to the mansion was a little incomprehensible to them.

In the original, Duke Cassiar was quite popular with young ladies.
They had a lot of unrequited love for him, even though they knew he had madness.

It was strange if someone was not interested in his looks. 

Even when someone brought up Duke Cassiar in the original novel, they continued to talk nonstop.

“I don’t think so.
We can see her with our own eyes.”

“Does the depressed Duke finally have a wife?”

“Is this true? Could you give me a pinch on the cheek? Ouch! It hurts! How did you get such a hard pinch on my cheek?”

“Whatever the case, it was clear that this wasn’t a dream.”

“Is that so?”

“Nice!”

After their short, deep scream and a dull thud passed by, cheers that seemed to hold their breath were heard.

Then the sound of footsteps coming from here dispersed them.

You seemed to have finished the food.

“Have you already finished your food?”

Even if he died, he pretended not to touch the vegetables, but Duke Cassar emptied the bowl while I was distracted.

“Promise is a promise.”

Duke Cassiar cleared his throat as he gazed at the empty bowl with satisfaction.

“Do you think it works?”

“What do you think?”

Duke Cassiar gave me a direct stare.

Jesus Christ.
He looked at me with those sun-gold eyes, as clear as the morning dew, but even clearer.

Romaine was completely useless.
What else could it be if not lettuce?

Duke Cassiar seemed to be suffering from severe insomnia, as he showed no signs of being sleepy.
But it was too early to panic, because I still had one card left.

“Do not worry.
It’s not over yet.”

I turned to face the direction where the employees were whispering.

“Would you like to come in when it’s ready?”

“Yes.
This is chamomile tea that has been freshly brewed.”

An elderly servant with a friendly face brought tea into the room.

She came out and placed the teacup in front of Duke Cassiar with a smile on her face as if something pleasant had occurred.

“I should’ve greeted you earlier.
It’s great to meet you.
Madam, my name is Tiffany, the Lord Chamberlain of this mansion.”

Tiffany introduced herself to me after she finished her tasks.

Tiffany was a name I was sure I had heard before.
But when was it?

“Tiffany.
That’s the name of what the Duke said when he was asleep!”

I thought her name was familiar, but it was the name he mumbled in his sleep the day I met Duke Cassiar.

“Oh, my goodness! You’ve already heard how the Duke talks while he sleeps.
Thank you.
Thank you very much.
Madam.”

Tiffany, who appeared to be moved, clenched her hands despite the fact that I said nothing special.

Her moist eyes lit up as she screamed.

“Our Duke was not an eunuch!”

A loud clinking sound was heard as someone’s teacup fell.
