Calm down.
Don’t make assumptions without looking into it.

But then, if she were to look into it, what would she do about it?

Beatrice placed her hand on her chest and repeatedly took deep breaths, trying to control her impatience.

But the more she thought about it, the more Beatrice’s suspicions about Alejandro grew.

Alejandro is a man of many faces, has money to burn, and even joined the aristocracy six months ago.

He could be more audacious.

“I’m scared… I don’t know what to do.”

There was no way Beatrice could compete.

If anyone tries to touch her in a bad way, he will surely, or certainly, take some measures against Beatrice as well.
Nicholas Trad might have been done in by him.

In that sense, she felt that what happened at the end before the rebirth was also a set-up.

“But I was weak because of my diseases to begin with…”

That’s why at that time.

When she felt her body weakening little by little, Beatrice was beginning to realize that she was dying.

It was almost a year longer than the three years she had expected.

However, that made the position of Natalia, the unmarried lady, even more delicate.

Leopold, who was strangely disciplined, never laid a hand on Natalia during his marriage to Beatrice, and remained respectful of Beatrice, who was only a decorative wife.

The marriage was well financed by Beatrice’s family, the Marquise of Strydom.

Although there were still occasional accidents and bandit attacks that shook up the business of the Reinalpha family, the situation was still improving steadily.

Come to think of it, Beatrice recalled something.

She remembered, about two weeks before she was killed, Beatrice met Natalia.

Natalia had come to visit Beatrice when she was nearly bedridden.

That’s right, she was certain about that one.

——”Are you okay? Trice.
You look like you’re in a lot of pain.”

——”I’m fine.
I’m used to this.
I’m sorry, Natalia.
Three years have already passed, and I’ve kept you waiting for this long.”

——”No, it’s okay, it doesn’t matter.
I have hope because of you.”

That’s right.
Indeed, that’s what Natalia said at the time, there was hope.

——”Hey, Trice.
If you hadn’t helped me, I’m sure I would be dead by now.”

——”Eh?”

——”Because, you know.
I, all this time.”

Natalia looked like she was about to cry.
Even though her face was definitely smiling.

“Every time I had it, every time I found it, I lost it.
My friends, my precious things, my hopes, my dreams, everything.
Yes, all this time.”

“I was empty.”

Even now, She can recall it vividly.
That clean, beautiful, smiling face of Natalia.

“But Trice became my friend.
And she helped me in this way so that Leo and I could get married in the future.
So now I have hope.”

She didn’t want to think that what she said at that time was a lie, but….

“Trice is the reason I’m still alive today.”

“So… thank you, Triche.”

So said Natalia.

After she said that, Natalia stuck the knife into Beatrice two weeks later.
