Chapter 78: Idle talk – The Hand Reached Out to Albert 2

“Would you like some help with love?”

“What?”

Albert noticed that he had not paid any attention to his surroundings at all due to the sudden voice heard nearby.

He looked back, he saw a familiar woman a few dozen steps away.

Duke Augren’s daughter, Elena.

“So, you’re saying you’ll help with love…?”

She was someone who had talked with Albert several times and was always kind to him, so he had thought that she might have some feelings for him.

But their social status was too different.

Besides, he had heard that Duke Augren wanted to marry his daughter Elena to the prince. It was only possible for a noble lady like Elena, who is a member of the royal family, to marry a prince or a princess from another country.

So he thought that she couldn’t possibly like Albert.

But what did she mean by “help with love”?

Elena immediately answered Albert’s question.

“Michelia, a woman who works under the Academy. I heard that she used to be a noble lady. Don’t you want to be with her, Albert-sama? She is well-known, I have seen you two very close in the Academy many times.”

“Yes… I mean…”

It was something he had done as an insult for Linea, but when he was told this by someone else again, it was a bit embarrassing.

Elena laughed as if she could see through his thoughts.

“Don’t worry about it, many noblemen surround themselves with women from the time of their engagement.”

“Uh, the…disgrace…”

Albert stuttered, unable to say anything else.

Even if it is permissible, it would be rude to nod openly to someone who fits the position of legal wife.

Religiously, monogamy is the basic principle in this country. Concubines and mistresses are not originally accepted.

However, in the case of the nobility, they are tolerated for the sake of an heir in case of succession, and it is one way for poor commoners to survive for the wealthy to have mistresses.

Above all, temples that receive a certain amount of donations from such people are tolerated.

Of course, the primary wives will hate them.

Sometimes it is because their position may be threatened. It is common for the primary wife to be falsely accused to make the mistress the primary wife.

“It’s sad that men can’t have the person they love by their side.”

Without answering Albert’s apology, Elena said this.

“So I thought I might help you out.”

“Wh-what do you mean?”

“Was it Linea Radin, I wonder? I’ll make her disappear.”

Albert gasped sharply.

Elena certainly said [erase].

If that’s the case, then how good it would be for Albert. He’s dreamed of it countless times. But he can’t do that in reality.

“Duke Svald finds out…”

What would happen? It would be better if only his house was destroyed.

“”That person” is also being deceived. Otherwise, there is no way that person would be interested in an always gloomy, dark woman.”

What Elena said always made sense.

A woman with no charm. On the contrary, if she were by his side, she would become a disgrace. Despite being a nuisance, he can’t think of a single reason why he would go out of his way to protect her. It must be because Count Elvasti secretly used some medicine to forcibly entangle her.

That’s why Duke Lars Svald is a very pitiful person.

Albert, who doesn’t know about Linea’s skill, honestly thinks so.

“But if you say disappear…”

“I will.”

Elena places a hand on her chest. It seems that the Duke Augren family will take care of it.

But naturally indecisive Albert couldn’t make a decision. He was afraid to make the decision to kill.

Into Albert’s ears, Elena pours sweet poison.

“If she goes away, you don’t have to be engaged anymore. After that, it’s okay to be with me. Your precious Michelia? You can keep her, can’t you?”

“Marriage with Elena-sama? But…”

“It’s okay. We can make any difference in social status. I want to escape from an unwanted marriage. I really want to escape from that prince…there are also rumors that he is a brute, and he has a harsh manner, so if I were to be with him, I would cry many times. I don’t want that.”

Elena looks sad and hugs her own shoulders.

Certainly, Prince Conrad is said to have problems with his words and actions. Since the royal family does not attend the Academy, he has not had close contact with him, but he has heard that he speaks in a haughty manner and that he’ll immediately reprimand you if you go against his wishes.

It is not surprising that she wants to marry someone else to avoid that.

He also knows that his own married life will not be very enjoyable, so he doesn’t want to marry Linea.

(Besides…if it’s the Duke Augren family, they can keep Duke Svald in check.)

At the same time, it’s not necessary to completely give up on Michelia.

Albert nods to Elena.

“If Elena-sama says so…I understand.”

Elena gave a big smile.

“I’m glad, Albert-sama. In that case, please leave the matter to me. If you cooperate just once, I will definitely fulfill my role.”

At those words, Albert felt relieved.
