Grand Duke Arthur was the most likely candidate to succeed the current Emperor and her father in the Arpen Empire.

He was younger than his old father, and he was also strong in power as he ruled over a large territory.

War was not difficult if he was determined to rebel.

‘But that means I’m like a hostage, after all, right?’

The rumour was not true, but listening to Arthur, she was like a hostage.
His words were the same as saying that if he did not agree to the engagement and sent her to his side, he would at least start a war.

“Father, I’m going because I like it.
There’s a way to live, so I can’t give up, right? So don’t worry.”

“I won’t stop you if you say so.”

“And shouldn’t he also be punished? I want to hurt that beautiful face, but that would be too harsh for a pretty child, right?”

Her father’s eyes were wide open at her words.
Elliot was also surprised and looked up at her.
She felt an uneasy gaze with hope.

“Mary, this child also deceived you and cursed the Imperial family.”

“That’s right.
You should look back on yourself and not covet what belongs to others.
Then you can make it hard and blind her eyes.”

“Princess! I don’t want to! Why are you doing this to me?”

“That way, you can no longer covet others’ things.
How can you be greedy when you can’t see it? I think it’s a punishment that suits you so well.”

Elliot shook her body and shook her head like a seizure.
Along with her tangled hair, her face was so damaged that it was hard to see because of sweat and tears.

“Hwa, the Princess.
I just did what you told me to do.
Sa, save me! I! Just did what you told me to do!

“What do you mean, Elliot? How much I loved Gray.
Now you are blaming me for your actions?”

Her coldly drooping eyes glanced over at Elliot.
The two cheeks, which had turned red, had long disappeared.
Only the red cut that seemed to have been hit by someone remained clear.

“But I’m sure the Princess..…!”

“What am I missing? If you have something to gain, don’t you have more? I loved him so much.
You’re the one who’s greedy for something that’s not yours.”

“Hwa, Princess!”

She turned her head as if she were hurt and sighed.
Arthur stayed still and watched her actions with interest.
As his father’s expression hardened further, she grabbed her chest and took a breath.


Surprised, Father stood up from his seat and shouted.
Arthur naturally supported her waist and held it in his arms.
He bowed his head and whispered in a small voice in her ear.

“Your acting is improving day by day.”

At Arthur’s words, she opened her eyes with difficulty and relaxed her body.
Then it became more like leaning on Arthur.
Along with her slender body, the appearance in his arms was at stake.

“Oh, Father, hurry and get rid of this kid, too.
Just thinking about it makes my heartbreak so much that I can’t breathe.
I’m going crazy imagining the two tangled up behind me.”

Her father quickly removed Elliot from her sight.
When she disappeared, she escaped Arthur’s body as if nothing had happened and smiled brightly.

“Father, can I leave now? I think the effectiveness of the medicine is decreasing.”

Her father seemed to be tired, as if he had given up soon.
Soon after, she asked him to come out and guide Arthur outside.

Now her and Arthur’s engagement will soon be known to everyone.
Of course, along with the story of Gray, who deceived everyone and played with the maid.

In addition, information on his territory and her story of accepting engagement for the alliance with Arthur, who asked for engagement, will be published in the newspaper.

Coming out under Arthur’s support, she laughed and tilted as soon as the door closed.


She thinks she feels a little less sorry for Mary.
She has returned some of the pain she has suffered on her behalf, so wouldn’t this forgive her a little?

“For a while…”

Then, suddenly, she remembered when she was heading to his territory, so she turned her head and looked at him.

“Will I lose consciousness like last time?”

“I don’t know.”

Arthur smiled with an unknown expression.
She still didn’t like his raised mouth.
She thought it will be the same this time.

‘Do I have to go through that unpleasant experience again?’

She didn’t talk to him anymore.
There was nothing different if she said it.
Arthur approached next to her and followed her steps with a cooler attitude than before.

“If you say no, I won’t do it this time.”

“How do I believe that?”

At her suspicious gaze, Arthur hardened her lips with a friendlier look than anyone else’s.

“Well, it’s like building trust.”

Arthur still stared at her without smiling.
Carl was seen in front of her, who was trying to ignore her gaze.

At her call, Carl slowly tried to come close to her.

“But you’re the only one I will allow.”

“Archduke Arthur, don’t be mistaken.
All I believe in is not you, but the medicine you gave me.
Shouldn’t there be one person who will protect me?”

“Princess Mary Anastasia, it’s not anyone, but me who protects you.”

Arthur’s eyes shook small.
Unlike before, she trembled at Arthur’s voice, which set up a lot of blades.
The threateningly shining eyes looked like a beast.

She breathed a small breath at his appearance, which seemed like it will bite her neck.
At that moment, she felt like prey and her mouth dried up.

The atmosphere changed quickly, and he was a person she couldn’t predict.

“I’m not an understanding person enough to take someone who wants what’s mine with me.”

“Don’t worry about that.
Because Carl knows my matter.”

Carl just bowed his head at what she said.
What kind of expression does he have when she says something that digs into his heart? She tried to turn her head as if nothing had happened.

“What I’m worried about is you, not the servant.”

Arthur’s sarcastic voice lingered around her ears.
Carl’s head slowly sounded as he said.
She closed her eyes and decided.

He knows what she’s thinking.
His gaze fixed on her as if he had seen through her heart toward Carl.
