“Alice Norchev and Thor Norchev’s marriage partners are those whom they themselves desired. When they marry, it is ensured by the royal family that the marriage is not coerced.

Well, marriages among nobility are usually for mutual benefits, but it seems that if these two are to marry, it would be a marriage of love.”

Pausing, His Majesty smiled slyly.

“This is a proposal from the head of the Norchev family, to be formally recorded. If the marriage is against one’s will, an appropriate punishment for the counterpart will be enforced. Of course, it is also acceptable not to marry. One should marry only if one desires to.”

“My dad would. . . do such a thing. . .”

“A wonderful father who thinks of his family. . . I envy the Norchev family.”

His Majesty let out his true feelings with a casual remark, leaving others unsure of how to respond.

After all, His Majesty and Roa-sama’s father is. . . quite, significantly peculiar. I deeply feel that a stalker with power is troublesome.

“Furthermore, regarding your mother’s illness, everything possible shall be done. A physician will be provided for the lady. While medicine is being developed, it seems it will take a bit more time to complete. The lady’s health is improving, so you may be at ease.”

“Yes, thank you.”

Bowing deeply,

The recovery of my mom is thanks to Roa-sama, who decided on the development of the medicine, and His Majesty, who allowed her treatment and protected her from Dyson.

“No need for thanks. It’s because Linus decided to proceed with the development.”

“There are many diseases, and everyone understands it’s impossible to cure them all.”

“I cannot afford to be complacent with those words. I am the king, after all.”

Despite the pained expression when he spoke, His Majesty was smiling.

. . .Perhaps it is because he is such a person that he can lead this country.

His Majesty lightened the mood by joking, “Oh, I’d hate to be fallen for,” before a serious light flickered in his eyes.

“To me, this is the main issue at hand.

. . .Linus refuses to back down from leaving the royal family. He insists that would be his reward.”

I gasped in surprise, but my racing heart soon calmed.

. . .Perhaps somewhere, Roa-sama had anticipated choosing this.

“Prince Linus has always. . . been concerned about His Majesty Coleesh. He does not wish to shake his brother’s kingship.”

“Indeed. If that truly is the reward Linus wishes for, I would not stop him. That is what I want to give him.

But think about it!”

Startled by His Majesty Coleesh’s sudden loud voice,

“He prevented the usurpation of the throne and the assassination of the king, right?! Everyone is being promoted in rank, except for Arthur’s place which can’t be raised higher because he’s a Duke, right?! Why is it that only Linus’s status is falling?!”

“Ah, that’s certainly true.”

“This isn’t a reward but a punishment! I’m trying to add various benefits to make becoming a Duke a reward for Linus, but he says he doesn’t want it! Please persuade him!”

“Me?”

“Yes! Because Linus wants to do that to marry Miss Norchev!”

“What?!”

“I’m making sure there are as few obstacles as possible when Miss Norchev feels positive about marriage. He was half-joking about wanting to become a commoner.”

“. . .Indeed, it would be easier for Prince Linus to marry as a commoner. . .”

“It’s usually the opposite, right? It’s odd to prefer a husband of lower status.”

“I’m sorry. . .?”

 ㅤ

Apologizing without fully understanding.

Even if my status rises, it doesn’t change the fact that the Norchev family was a Viscount until just recently, nor does it change that I have not acquired the common sense, knowledge, or behavior of the high nobility.

There are things that cannot be dealt with by feelings alone.

“I am aware that Miss Norchev does not wish to marry. I do not intend to coerce her into marriage, but allow me to convey just the facts.”

“Understood.”

“Should Miss Norchev wish to marry someone, the royal family will support her decision regardless of who it is. We will conduct an investigation of the party, and will inform her if the findings are unfavorable.”

“Thank you very much.”

“If the person is of lower status than Miss Norchev, there is especially no problem. Miss Norchev originally comes from the lower nobility; those manners are probably more ingrained in her.”

“Yes.”

Norchev family hasn’t held many tea parties, so there would be many things lacking if she married into the lower nobility.

Sensing that I never wanted to marry from the beginning, neither my father nor my mother tried to force me to learn such things. I can never be grateful enough to my family.

“Even if Miss Norchev wishes to marry someone of higher status, frankly, there’s not much of a problem. Marriages with a status difference are possible. This time, Miss Norchev has achieved enough to marry into royalty without any complaints. Manners can be dealt with somehow.”

I wonder if that’s possible. . . I absolutely don’t think it is.

“Besides, with this incident, the nobles must have been convinced. It’s because of marrying close relatives that someone with a disturbed mind like the previous king arises.”

Disrespect!!

. . .But I thought, since king Coleesh in front of me is the most important person in the country, it’s not disrespectful. . . is it?

His Majesty, sensing my discomfiture, chuckled and tilted his head slightly.

“Does Miss Norchev know of the old marriages?”
