Chapter 12: The End. Our life together│Read translated stories and daily updates at: Awebstories.com
The next day, we returned to the Hanoverian household to discuss our formal engagement.
Musker and Lily, of course, were not present.
The feast began after a proper discussion, and while they were getting drunk, I listened to what they had to say after being picked up last night.
Lily told Musker she didn’t like him and cursed him, saying that Brother Aaron despised her because of him.
Musker appears to have gotten into a fight with Lily as well.
She seemed to only want to play with Musker and me, with no romantic feelings for him.
She was well aware that Musker had previously expressed an interest in her and was attempting to arouse his interest on purpose.
She was enjoying being on the edge of not breaking off the engagement because she didn’t want to be pressured into marriage.
I believe she has a really bad personality.
If she had revealed her true nature to him, her brainwashing would have been undone.
His delusion that the girl was mentally weak may have woken him up, and he may have begun to blame himself.
I wish he’d returned to the old Musker, but it’ll be a long time before I forgive him as a friend.
I’m sure Lily has been steering her parents in this direction, encouraging them to persecute Daisy.
Like this time, it’s most likely to pass the time.
Daisy was correct in leaving that house.
Her decision to never return was unquestionably for the best.
I simply wish Daisy the best.
“After all, we were just pushed around by those two. “
I sigh involuntarily.
“I don’t want to consider it a waste of time.”
Aaron says with a wry smile.
“Well… maybe I wouldn’t have been able to talk to Aaron like this if I hadn’t been engaged to him at the time.”
“It’s difficult when your wife is running around.”
“Right? So I guess I needed that time to prepare.”
I’m in Aaron’s room, two weeks after our official engagement.
We haven’t really discussed marriage since that day.
I’m the only daughter, and it will take a lot of effort and support for Aaron to become the head of the Hanover family.
But, for the time being, I’m putting aside trivial matters and taking advantage of his parents’ kindness by conversing slowly with them.
According to Lord Hanover, Lily would be banned for life, and Musker would be assigned as an apprentice to a distant relative after graduation.
This stems from their concern that they would be too lenient with their son.
Lord Hanover laughed, saying he was a strict man and Musker’s spoiled nature would be a little better.
Perhaps he was considerate of me as well.
As a result of that, I won’t have to worry about seeing him for a while.
Lord Hanover immediately called Anderson afterwards and told them what had happened.
Lily’s parents appear to have blamed her for the incident and pleaded with him to allow them to continue their relationship in exchange for her isolation.
I heard that Lily had a look of despair on her face, but I didn’t feel any sympathy for her.
They had adored her, but the moment she became a threat to their position, they simply discarded her. Lord Hanover felt incompatible with the members of that family.
Lord Hanover, of course, had refused, and had even turned them away in disgust.
Following that, Lily’s parents changed their ways and sent Aaron daily letters requesting Daisy’s contact information, with no follow-up with Lily.
“I’m not going to give it to them.”
Aaron smiled as he mercilessly tossed the letter he had just received into the blazing fireplace.
Don’t tell anyone, but his cold smile piqued my interest in a new way.
I’m curious what they’ll look like when they realize Daisy has given up on them.
Will Lily, who is now completely ignored, return? Even if she does, she won’t be able to do whatever she wants like she used to.
In any case, I’m not sure what will happen because I won’t have anything to do with her anymore.
“Let’s just forget about them.”
“Yeah, probably for the best. “
We share a wry sigh and a wry smile.
“So, about the ceremony…”
Aaron, embarrassed, clears his throat and begins.
“You don’t want to do it on the day you were supposed to meet Musker, do you? So I’m thinking about rescheduling it in about a year.
I consider it with trepidation.
Of course, we had to consider the convenience of our parents and the people in attendance, but we were instructed to first discuss it among ourselves.
My wedding to Musker was supposed to happen around the same time as my graduation.
That meant there were less than six months to go.
The date was already set in stone, if you will.
The normal course of action would be to cancel it and reschedule it for another day.
But I said,
“If Aaron doesn’t mind, I’d like to do it on that day as planned.”
“Are you sure? You don’t have to worry about the cost or anything.”
“No, I’m referring to…”
I squeezed his hand and looked him straight in the eye.
“I can’t wait to be your wife.”
It’s a heartfelt wish.
I don’t want to leave him for even a second longer.
When I get home, I want to be right next to him.
Aaron’s cheeks are turning bright red.
Then he squeezed my hand again, not looking away.
“…Yeah. Me too. I can’t wait to be Amelia’s husband.”
He gave a faint smile, took my hand in his, and kissed my fingertips.
There would be uncertainty and confusion, but I had faith that Aaron and I would get through it.
That is something I could believe.
“I wonder if Daisy will come.”
“Yes, she severed all ties with that house, so she doesn’t have to be concerned about Lily and the others attending the ceremony.”
My chest warms up recalling her full-bloomed smile.
Daisy would give me her heartfelt blessing.
I’m curious if she’ll introduce me to the woman of her dreams. I’d be delighted if she did.
We exchange a teary-eyed smile and lock our foreheads together.
Our hearts were filled with joy the first time we kissed.
If you’re having a hard time, don’t keep it to yourself.
If Aaron is distressed, you should be the first to notice and listen to him.
We will walk through eternity together, caring for, standing by, and supporting one another.
We’ve come a long way, but I’m confident I can do it with Aaron.
When I saw him gently smiling at me, I was convinced.
This concludes the story. Thank you for sticking with me all the way to the end. I hope you had as much fun as I did.
