light outerwear and came outside.

She headed to the banquet hall with Carl.
As the place neared, exciting music came to her ears.

It was the first time she was in front of people since she became Mary.

“Carl, is Gray here?”

“He came every day.”

“Really?”

He must have been curious if she was dead.
He’d be in trouble if she died even before he got engaged.
She entered the banquet hall under Carl’s escort.

Everyone stopped being surprised by her who suddenly appeared.
The young girls swallowed dry saliva and looked at her.

One by one, they greeted her politely.
She just nodded and didn’t give a look.
Her father looked at her and ran to her in one step and looked at her.

“Mary, are you okay?”

“It’s okay.
A party without a main character.
Isn’t it boring?”

“Yeah.
It’s perfect for you to come.
But you shouldn’t overdo it.”

Her father looked at her saying he was still worried.
But he didn’t say anything else, perhaps because he knew her stubbornness.

He just asked Carl to keep an eye on her.

She sat down and looked away at the people.
Oh, she saw the unlucky Gray over there.
She pretended she didn’t see him and looked straight at another place.

She could see Gray approaching herself.
She rolled her eyes quickly to find him.

“It’s over there.”

She quickly got up from her seat.
Gray stopped walking because he thought she was coming.

She immediately approached the man tilting a glass of wine with a mean look at the banquet hall.

Neither her father nor Gray saw her.
Passing through Gray, she stopped in front of Grand Duke Arthur Douglas.

Grand Duke Arthur looked at her and put down the wine glass.
It wasn’t revealed on his face, but he looked a little embarrassed.
He looked at her still, turning his expression back.

‘Grand Duke Arthur Douglas.
This guy is perfect.’

The Grand Duke had his own land.
He was powerful enough to be envied by others and to keep her father in check.
Perhaps that’s why bad rumors continued to spread around him in the empire.

However, it was only a rumor and nothing was confirmed.
The land he ruled was such a closed and secret place.

‘But not a single person has left the territory.’

She shouldn’t judge people just by the rumors, but she rather liked the rumor about him.

They seem to match each other well.
There’s no need to find it from afar.
In addition, she doesn’t think he’ll care about whether she dies or what she does, and she thinks it’ll be a clean relationship.
