re scared like that, I’m sorry to ask.”

“I’m sorry.”

“Sometimes, I hear screams at night.
Do you know about the screams?”

“…I don’t know what you’re talking about because I can’t hear it.”

As expected, she shook it off.
She expected her not to tell her right away, but she didn’t know she would answer right away.

She still fixed the corners of her mouth with a smile on her face.

“That’s weird.
I heard it again.”

“…….”

Silence.
What she chose this time was silence.
She asked again as she saw her still rolling the carpet.

“Then, do you know about the locked room at the end?”

“I’ll bring you a new carpet.”

“Delia, you have to look at me when I talk.”

She got up from her seat and stood in front of the maid.
Hmph.
Her body trembled.
She bowed her upper body and made eye contact with her, drawing a brighter smile on her face.

“Otherwise, I might get angry again.”

“I’m sorry.”

“Then I’ll change the question and ask.
You just have to answer yes or no.”

Delia’s lips are tightly closed.
As if she could no longer answer, Mary grabbed her chin with her hand and fixed it towards her.

“If it’s hard to answer, you can do this.
If it’s right, nod or shake for no.
That’s the only answer you can give.
You don’t have to open your mouth, so just move your face.
That’s easy, is it?”

Delia’s gaze shook.
She asked, letting go of the hand that held her chin.
If she didn’t answer again this time, she couldn’t step down as she was.

That was the only maid she had in her hands here.

She never knew how it would change if the Grand Duke returned.
She had to get what she wanted to know before that.

“Let me ask you again.
What’s happening in the locked room?”

When Delia’s head did not move, she stroked her cheek gently and approached her ear and whispered.

“Delia, you’re afraid of the Grand Duke.
But in front of you, I might do something worse.
So move your stiff head and give me the answer I want.”

“……Please.”

“I’m not a very generous person.
As you know, I’m not in a position to take care of other people.
It’s simple.
All you have to do is move your head, right? I won’t tell anyone.”

Delia’s eyes changed from fear to resignation and soon nodded slightly.

When she heard the answer she wanted, she put her hand on the maid’s shoulder and erased the murderous intent.

“Thank you.
See you later.
He’ll be suspicious when he finds out that the carpet has been changed, so tell him I asked you to take it out.”

“Yes, I see.”

“Oh, by the way.
Don’t let him know I didn’t take medicine.”

“I’ll keep that in mind.”

Delia’s expression carrying out the carpet was disastrous.
But Mary didn’t mean to hurt her.

She was the only one who could tell her about this place, but from Delia’s own point of view, it would be a shame if she disappeared.
