“I was waiting for you.”


Sylvester said.


“Where have you been, until this late?”




I looked outside where the sun was still there. 


“It wasn’t too late.” 


“It’s late.


He looked at me and grinded his teeth.


“Where have you been?”


After asking this question, I opened my mouth before I could answer.


“Did you meet the Crown Prince?”


Look at this.


I narrowed my eyes.


“You added another person.”


Sylvester stepped back, looking at me as if he were guilty.


Ah, I can’t believe it. 


I took a step closer to him.


“Are you really going to be like this? Why do you put people on me every time I go out?”


Sylvester said, raising his chin as if to look at it.


“Isn’t it natural?”




“I’m asking if it’s natural why you put people together with your wife when she goes outside.”


“What’s so natural about that?”


Isn’t he crazy?


I was so dumbfounded that I want to run away from home.
I touched my forehead.


“If you add a person when I go out one more time,”


“What if I put it on?”


“I’m going to bring divorce documents.”


Sylvester opened his mouth wide.


He looked at me with an incredible expression.


“Didn’t the divorce talk end already?”


“It’s not though?” 




“If you’re obsessed like this, I can’t stand it either.
I’m a person who hates obsession.”


Sylvester gently bit his lower lip and glanced at me.


Then he sighed and tilted his head back.


“I was afraid it would be dangerous.”




“The 2nd Prince is after you.
That’s why I put more people because I thought it would be dangerous.”




No I mean, then I would say yes—.


I got embarrassed and scratched the back of my neck.


“Do you know what makes me who was angry when you said this?”


“What will happen?”






Sylvester seemed to hold back his laughter.




I clicked my tongue and swept over the flowing hair.


“Then, you know where I went today, right?




Sylvester nodded his head.


“Why did you go to a place that sells monster meat? What if you wander around such an illegal place?”


Fortunately, he didn’t seem to know what the store was like.




I breathed a sigh of relief.


I didn’t want Sylvester to find out about my information guild.


Because I didn’t want to let him know every move I made.


In this context, it was fortunate that Sylvester didn’t notice the Mercenary Guild.
I breathed a sigh of relief again.


“Be careful from now on.
It might be dangerous.
How tough are the people there.”


Sylvester said as if he was really worried about me.
I raised my eyebrows up.


“Your wife is tougher.”




“You know that.”


“That’s true.”


Sylvester said, wondering if it must have reminded him of the past.


It was a reaction I was hoping for, but when it comes out like this, it feels a little different.


I narrowed my eyes.




Sylvester continued.


“Did you get any results from going out?”


I shook my head.


“I just went out and came back.
There’s nothing to achieve.”


“You just went out and met the Crown Prince.”


“I happened to run into him.
I have no intention to meet him.”


Sylvester didn’t seem to believe it.


Oh, this guy’s really suspicious.


“You don’t trust your wife that much?”




“I’m flustered because it’s so spontaneous.”


Sylvester finally burst into laughter.


“I’m joking.
I trust you.” 


Then he puts his hand on the top of my head and strokes my hair.


A soft smile and soft hands seemed to embrace me.


Ah, why am I so shy again?


I closed my mouth with my eyes down.


“Who would I trust if I didn’t trust you?”




“I don’t trust him”.


“Neil is standing there, he can hear you.”


“I can hear you.”


Neil, who was standing still, answered.
Sylvester snorted. 



“I said it to make you hear it.
You’ve been falling these days.


Anyway, the relationship between the two is very strange.


I burst into laughter and grabbed Sylvester by the wrist.


“And regarding the magic circle—”


Before the information came in from the mercenary guild.


There was only one thing I could do.


‘Using the contents of the original story.’


Ah, but I really didn’t want to do it.


And there is nothing I can do, well. 


I lifted my chin with all my heart.


“Let’s move first.”




I smiled and then frowned.


“You’re going to visit the Grand Duke, right?”




In the original story, Fleur accidentally discovers the magic circle.


It’s right in the Grand Duke. 


I knew this right away, but there was one reason I didn’t want to do it. 


‘It’s not very well-formed.’




But it can’t be helped.


Now that this has come, I have no choice but to go to the Grand Duke. 


In fact, it is not easy to visit the Grand Duke. 


Because they have to invite you.
This is because, as I said, people who come are overshadowed by the Duke’s terrible health anxiety. 


However, Sylvester could go without an invitation.




Because Sylvester was the head of the aristocratic faction and the most powerful.
In addition, it is possible because he is ‘very’ close with the Grand Duke.


So we were on our way to the Grand Duke in a carriage.


“By the way.”


Said Sylvester, who was sitting opposite me. 


“Why is the Grand Duke suddenly?”


I knew he would ask like this. 


I saw it in the original, and there is a magic circle in it— but I couldn’t say that, so I had no choice but to answer indirectly.


“I thought it’d be good to see the Grand Duchess after a long time.”


I said it casually.


“We haven’t seen each other since the last time, right?”


That day. 


The thing when Fleur tried to kill me with perfume.


‘Oh, I have to get revenge for that.’


What should I do?


I was in agony for a while.


“Is there anything you want to ask for the Grand Duke?”


At that time, Sylvester asked.


“That’s a lot of things to do.”


I nodded my head.


“For example, when we build our school, he will come and give a congratulatory speech.”


Sylvester’s eyes widened.


“That sounds good!”


He clapped his hands and said.


“Then we can highlight the relationship between us and the Grand Duke, so the emperor’s stone statue will be buried soon.”


Uhm, I didn’t think that far before I said it.


But I think that would be nice.


“Yes, I think so.”


So I smiled while answering.
Sylvester smiled similarly to me.


“As expected, you’re smart.”


He took my hand.
Holding hands with him, I stared blankly at Sylvester.


Then Sylvester smiled low and kissed the back of my hand.


“What are you doing!”


I was surprised and tried to pull out, but Sylvester wouldn’t let go.


“Because you’re so pretty.”


He kissed the back of my hand once more and slowly raised his eyes.


“That’s why I kissed you.
Is there a problem?”


There’s a lot of problems! 


I tried to calm down my pounding heart and breathed heavily.


“No I mean, you should’ve given me a signal.
But suddenly!”


“When will you stop being embarrassed?”


He smiled and put his fingers in my hand.


“If I do more than this, my wife’s face will explode.”


More than this? 




I leaned back without realizing it.


Sylvester’s smile deepened.


“Stop it because it’s cute.
It makes me want to do more.”


I don’t know what else he wants to do, but for the first time I was shy, so I quietly shut my mouth.
Sylvester smiled again and tapped my cheek. 


“Now we can see the sea.”


And pointed to the outside.


I turned my head slowly, too.


Then I could see the vast open sea.




I approached the window in awe.
I looked out with my nose on the window.


I asked him to pass by the sea before going to the Grand Duke, but it was a good thing he did.


“Do you like it that much?”


Sylvester said.


I like it.”


I answered as if it were natural.


No wonder, I’ve never seen the sea in my life.


I was sick in my previous life and had never been to the sea.


But I can’t believe I’m seeing the sea from here!


There was a desire to run and dip my feet right away.


But I shouldn’t do that.


The Duchess has dignity, and I also have to meet the Grand Duchess—.


“Shall we go?”




I was surprised and asked Sylvester’s words.


“No, I’m happy to see you like it so much.”


Sylvester held my hand tightly.


“Go soak your feet and get some fresh air.”


“I like it.
But will it be okay?”


“About what?”


“The dignity—”


“Since when did you care about your dignity?”


This is right.


Since when did I keep my dignity?


Thinking like that made me feel lighter.
Sylvester smiled and said.


“You’d better go.”


I will.”




Sylvester pulled my hand.
And he kissed the back of my hand again.


No, he kissed slowly from the back of my hand to my fingers.


The hot breath spread throughout the hand.


“Let’s do it again next time.”
