e standing for me.”
He grinned, perhaps delighted by my words.
“That’s a relief.
To answer your question, my eyes are originally red.
The golden eyes are the fake ones.”
“…That means you look exactly like the Duke, don’t you…? Luca, this might sound absurd, but…are you secretly his twin brother who was abandoned when you were young? Then you went to the duchy for revenge…”
I was so serious.
But Luca only smiled so brightly that his eyes crinkled up.
Leona tends to say absurd things.
If that’s the truth, I wouldn’t have let the Duke know that my eyes are red.”
“Ahh…does he know?”
“I think you sound disappointed.”
I was going to ask Luca to steal the Duke’s position!”
His hand approached my cheek calmly.
“Do you want that?”
“My heart fluttered earlier.”
My heart fluttered when I called you my wife.”
“But Luca and the duke are different persons.
That’s too bad.
Then, shall we go now?”
My heart was beating so hard hearing Luca answering my questions honestly.
I shouldn’t have loved him.
Rere was supposed to be the only one for me, but without realizing it, I already poured out my feelings to him.
So as if nothing had happened, I smiled and walked ahead of him.
“I want to see Rere quickly.”
“Leona will leave someday, right?”
The voice that called my name was calmer than ever.
“If I tell you honestly, will you tell the Duke? Well, I have no problem even if you tell him.”
“Because it’s not like I won’t leave just because he tells me not to.
I just want the Duke to give up his feelings for me.”
“…So you’re determined to leave in the end.”
The fact the Duke had feelings for me did not really bother him.
He was more bothered by my plan to leave.
“If I become a Duke, will you still leave then?”
“…Luca can’t be Duke.
Luca is Luca.”
But I’ve become a little greedy after I called you my wife.”
“Then steal it in a cool way.
Who knows? He might revoke my position as a contract duchess?”
His eyes that only looked at me affectionately shook greatly.
“Don’t regret saying that.”
“Are you really going to steal the Duke’s position?”
He said that, but the atmosphere around him changed in an instant.
Because of that, I stared at him blankly and stopped walking.
“Aren’t you going?”
“Oh, yeah, let’s go.
But Luca….don’t ever do anything reckless, okay?”
No one could ever steal the Duke’s position.
And Luca was…just a knight.
An unknown anxiety struck me, but I tried hard to erase it.
I didn’t think he truly loved me, so he wouldn’t do something reckless for my sake.
At that time, from a distance, Rere ran toward me.
Running with Ugly in her arms, Rere smiled brighter than ever.
As the distance neared, Rere jumped to me without slowing down.
“Why did you take so long!”
“Rere, I’m sorry.
Did you wait for a long time?”
“Yeeah! I’ve been waiting for a long time! I was worried if Big Bunny was too soft on those people!”
“Really? Fortunately, I scolded them just as Rere taught me.”
“Big Bunny, did you scold your family?”
They’re so mean that I can’t even call them my family.”
“But did you just let them go? You should’ve at least thrown poop water on them!”
“Huh? But my family didn’t do anything other than speak badly, though?”
“Still! Gosh, why are there so many bad people in the world! Even family could be mean to other family members! Don’t let them slide next time, okay?!”
I leaned down and held Rere in my arms.
“Hihi~ my pretty bunny is learning well.
Ah, but you know what? It’s been a while since I’ve been alone without Big Bunny, right?”
“So I thought of something.”
“What is it?”
“Do you know why we met?”
“Rere prayed everyday and asked God to let me have a mom who loves me.
That’s why we met!”
“But you said you don’t believe in god?”
When Rere said that, she averted her gaze elsewhere as if embarrassed.
“That’s because he made me meet Big Bunny so late…but I believe in God now!”
Rere smiled brightly.
Even her white teeth were lovely.
“Anyway! I always wondered who my mom was.
But I guess God really loves Rere.
Because he sent me a pretty bunny!”
