“Ah! That’s right! I suppose that’s the case.

She’ll become a concubine, but I can marry her as my official wife!”

“Right? Moreover, from the moment Douglas becomes a consort candidate, he becomes quasi-royalty.

At that point, the Marquis couple won’t be able to decide Douglas’ marriage partner.

Only the queen can approve the consort’s concubine.

Look, all that’s needed is my permission.

I can make Douglas a consort when I ascend to the throne as the queen.

At that time, if I make Emma, my exclusive maid, a concubine, no one can complain.

I want to make the consort’s wife someone I can trust. So, my exclusive maid, Emma, it is.

It’s not strange, is it?”

“No, not strange at all. Rather, it’s correct.

The consort’s concubine must be someone trustworthy.

We can’t have strange influences on the consort. . .It’s perfect, isn’t it?

You’ve noticed well, Sofia.”

“Oh, it’s because I initially ruled out Douglas as a potential consort. 

I never even considered such a possibility.”

“Fufufu. It might be thanks to Douglas.”

“Eh? Thanks to me?”

“I’ve been told by Eddie.

Being with both Chris and Kyle,

I must be able to stay composed, or I can’t become a consort.”

“. . .That’s true. After all, it’s these two.”

“Douglas, you’re always with them, aren’t you? You’re okay with it, right?

Even if the four of us are together, you won’t mind, right?”

“Uh, ah, right . . .now that I think about it, that’s true.”

“See. If you think about it, there was no one else.

Douglas, you’ve been fine with being together all the time at school, right?

You can talk to Chris and Kyle normally, and you can give your opinion to me.

You’re also good friends with Ruri and admired by Eddie and others.

See, it’s perfect.”

“That’s true. There’s no one but Douglas.”

“But I thought Douglas had to go to his domain to inherit the Marquis family, so 

I thought it was impossible.

Even as a concubine, even if she’s an official wife, she can’t appear in high society,

An ordinary young lady would hate that.

But Emma has her circumstances, so I thought maybe. . .”

The consort’s concubine is treated as an official wife in the family registry.

They share property, and the children born are officially recognized as nobles.

However, in public, since the consort is the queen’s husband, they cannot attend evening parties.

But it would be better for Emma not to have the opportunity to go to evening parties.

After becoming the Marquis’ wife, if she meets someone from the Count Ponette family, it might cause trouble.

I think Emma will become Douglas’ concubine when I become queen,

So until then, if a child is born to the Count Ponette family, that’s good, but this can only be hoped for.

If there’s no chance for Emma to appear in society, there’s less worry about harm being done to her,

And if anything is done to the consort’s concubine, the Count’s family should expect to be ruined.

If Douglas becomes my consort,

In that sense, he will be able to protect Emma and the children.

“. . .But, me becoming a consort? Am I going to marry Sofia-sama?”

While Emma’s matter can be solved, it seems he feels complicated about marrying me.

Douglas is making a subtle face I’ve never seen before.

Yeah, I understand. I feel exactly the same way.

Douglas is just a friend, a very close friend, and I trust him.

But, thinking of him as a husband? I think that’s impossible.

“Will you not become a strategist under the name of consort?”

“Huh?”

“I mean, I can’t think of Douglas as a husband.

“Isn’t it the same for Douglas? Can you see me as your wife?”

“. . .It’s difficult. No, it’s not that I don’t find Sofia-sama attractive.

But to think of you as a pure friend, and then as a wife. . .it’s a little bit.”

“I understand. I feel exactly the same.

So, although Douglas is one of the consorts, he doesn’t have to be a husband.

He may be a husband in public, but in reality, I want him to work as an aide.

Unfortunately, I can’t send him back to his territory,

So the Marquis house will have to be left to a proxy lord.

If Emma becomes a personal maid, Emma will also live in the palace.

At that time, I think I can have Douglas and Emma and the children live together.”

“. . .Is that okay? It’s more than I could wish for. . .”

“It’s okay. I don’t think I have to have children.

So I don’t require the role of a husband.

I’m even considering adopting Eddie and Diana’s children in the future.

So, Douglas, I would be happy if you would stay by my side as a friend and aide.

Won’t you lend a hand to protect this country?”

“Ah, yes! Of course!”

“I’m glad. Emma, it’s okay now.

You can take Douglas’ hand. You can accept him.”

    Kyle on the side, counting on his fingers like: “If Douglas isn’t interested…and Chris isn’t interested…I win! Wait. She does know I wanna sleep with her, right? And that this is gonna result in children….right?…….. please someone give my fiancée The Talk already.”
