“Hello, Duchess!”


“I’m here, Duchess!”


Countess Cardel and Jasmine greeted her at the same time.
I smiled brightly at them. 


“Why did you two come together?” 


I lifted the cup and said.
Then Countess Cardel answered.


“I contacted Young Lady Jasmine first.
I’d like to hear your opinion on the ball to be held soon at the Count.”. 


Jasmine also said. 


That’s why I suggested shopping.
It’s okay to call people, but the weather is nice, so I want to get some fresh air.”


“I came here because I thought it would be good if the Duchess would also join us.”


How can you say something that fits my opinion?


I took a sip of tea and smiled. 


“Even so, I thought I’d go to town today.
I’m glad that I think it’s right.” 


“Oh, my.
Did you? That’s really nice!”


Jasmine clapped her hand and said.


It would be nice to go to the capital today.”


“There are many good furniture stores in the capital.”


“There are a lot of party supplies stores.”


“Where should we go first?”


The Countess and Jasmine talked to each other.


I watched them silently, and slowly brought out the words I had originally wanted to ask them.


“By the way.”




“Please tell me, Duchess.”


“During the hunting contest.”


I intentionally continued to speak slowly.


“Did someone say anything after I went back?”


The Countess and Jasmine tilted their heads.


I added a word.


“It would be better if it were a story about Countess Fleur.”




Countess Cardel nodded her head as if noticing, and rolled her eyes.
She seemed to recall what happened that day.


“I don’t think anything really happened.
After you went back, we went home right away—” 


I think so—Ah!”


Jasmine clapped her hands.


“Come to think of it, Marchioness Amber caused a little commotion!” 


“Oh, that’s right.
That happened.
That’s right.
The Marchioness was a little angry.” 


Commotion? Angry? 


I listened to them.


“The Marchioness was a little angry with Countess Fleur.
They said that the perfume the Countess brought was made of Kerban flowers, which are used to lure out a monster.” 



“But no one went into the forest wearing perfume, and as a result, nothing happened, so it became a small thing caused by Countess Fleur’s ignorance.”


“Is that so?”


I crossed my arms and tilted my head. Hmm, sounds flowed out naturally. 


“The Marchioness Amber knew it.”


Marchioness Julia Amber.


She’s one of the people who sent me a letter after my black magic became known. 


Furthermore, she is also a character mentioned in the original work. 


As a villain who dislikes Fleur.
Of course, it’s not good for the Crown Prince, and it’s taken care of. 


It seemed the same as before for now.
So I thought, hopefully, I could use her.


“She’s quite sensible.
There must have been more people who didn’t know it was the scent of Kerban flowers.” 


“Did Madam know?”


Countess Cardel asked.
I smiled. 


“Well, what should I say?”


I relaxed my arms and leaned forward. 


“I want to say that I was in danger thanks to her.
Everyone must have seen my messed-up dress.
The evidence is clear.” 


I gently lifted the dress to reveal my injured calf.
The Countess and Jasmine’s eyes widened.


“I, it can’t be—”


“Did you have a fight with the monsters?”




I said with my index finger around my mouth.


“This is a secret.”


Hmph! Countess and Jasmine’s breath stopped for a moment. 


“It means I trusted you and said it.
If it leaks out—”


I blurted my words and cut my throat with my hand.
Then the Countess and Jasmine replied with a terrifying answer.


Yes I understand!”


“Y, yes!”


I smiled satisfactorily at them.
The reason for telling them is simple.
To let them know that I’m strong.
So that they can’t betray me. 


They must have noticed that I can easily kill them if I want because they’re smart enough. 


So they’ll be more loyal to me.


As if my thoughts were right, the eyes of Countess and Jasmine were brighter than before. 


I raised myself slowly with a smile.


“Then, it would be better to go out and see.”


Both the Countess and Jasmine raised themselves.
Then I said, staring straight at the Countess.


“Today, I’ll give you whatever you want.”


As soon as I finished talking, Countess Cardel’s face turned bright.


I tapped her shoulder and passed her.


Wow, I was really cool just now.


While muttering to myself.




We chatted happily all the way to the capital.


Most of the chatter was about the noble man that Count Cardel and Jasmine were meeting.


It was not a very interesting conversation, but I enjoyed it very much. 


I’ve never had such a light conversation since I became possessed.


I thought it would not be bad to live with normal conversations like now. 


Now I’m living a troublesome life with my head wrapped up.


I have to get divorced quickly and run away and live a normal and peaceful life like this. 


I thought with expectations for the future.


“—So, Duchess.”




I turned my head to the voice calling me. 


“Did you call me?”




Countess Cardel said. 


“I don’t think Madam is bragging about His Excellency.
If you are proud of His Excellency, we are ready to listen, so please tell us.” 


“That’s right! You’re welcome to brag about His Excellency!”


Jasmine also helped out.


“There was a time when His Excellency publicly confessed that he liked his wife.
How romantic it was back then! 


They seemed to be referring to the time when he made a strange confession to provoke Callian.


Ugh, it’s far from romantic.


I shook my head, kicking my tongue.


“Is His Excellency always this romantic? I’m really curious.”


“That’s right.
I don’t know if he’s cold-blooded outside, but I think he’s a really warm person inside!” 


What did I just hear?


Really warm person inside—? Where did such nonsense spread—?


“Please brag about it, Madam.


“That’s right!”


I sighed for now.


If I swear at Sylvester here, it’s like spitting in my face.


But it hurts my conscience to say that they are right.


Because it’s Sylvester’s pride.


What would be good? 




After contemplating for a long time, I slowly opened my mouth. 


“First of all, he’s strong.”


When I think of the time when he knocked down the monster, he was really strong.
That’s why I said this.


“And he doesn’t sleep much at night either.”


Because he comes into the room late at dawn and leaves the room early in the morning. 


It said that the early bird catches the worm, and he seemed to be very diligent in that area.


However, the Countess and Jasmine’s sense of humor were strange. 


“O, oh my—”


Jasmine avoided my gaze with her face red. 


“You must be on a really good relationship—”


Countess Cardel said, waving a fan.


I tilted my head. 


Can you guess that we’re on good terms with these words? 


I shook my head.


“It’s not exactly good.
We don’t usually talk much.
We only talk a little at night.”


“Oh my!”


Jasmine screamed and buried her face on both hands.


At first glance, I could see a bright red face.


“What’s wrong?”


“I, it’s nothing.”


Jasmine shook her hand and swallowed her saliva.


“I’m so jealous of your relationship.”


“I, I know.
When I go back, I’ll have to scold my husband.”


What did I say to make her scold Count Cardel? 


I shook my head because I didn’t understand it well, but the Countess and Jasmine just looked at each other and fanned, but didn’t say anything more to me.


So I had no choice but to stay still with curiosity.


Like that, we arrived in the capital.
