Marriage by Contract? No, It’s a Marriage of Convenience – A Countess Who Had Her Engagement Broken Off Lives Vigorously in the Northern Lands – Chapter 26

Chapter 26: Extreme Husband

At the time, Liddellina was in the salon on the first floor, drinking tea and holding her head.

(What should I do with the packed luggage?)

Friedrich’s memory may not return for a while. In that case, she thought she would just unpack a little and wear her clothes again. She hadn’t intended to be extravagant, but somehow her luggage had increased while she was in the mansion.

At any rate, Friedrich is always holed up in the office, so there is nothing to do. She is interested in the hot spring she fixed up, but she is afraid to leave the house where his relatives are lurking. Liddellina doesn’t want to come back and finds that she is not allowed to come and go.

As she was pouring a second cup of tea from the pot, there was a loud bang and the front door of the salon opened.

Hannah was standing there, her face contorted with anger. Something must have happened. As she cocked her head in surprise, she stormed over to Liddellina.

“Hey, how long do you plan on staying here?”

Hannah suddenly exploded with anger.

“No matter how long he asks me…”

That’s what she wanted to ask. It’s probably them who plan on staying here for as long as they can.

“It’s you who is causing us trouble by not leaving. No matter how long it takes, we can’t get married to Friedrich-sama!”

“Even if you say that, I’ve been told by my husband not to leave here.”

At that moment, there was a loud, dry sound, and Liddellina’s cheek became hot.


Instead of getting angry, she was dumbfounded. She didn’t know why her cheek was struck.

“Leave now!”

As she shouted, Hannah grabbed Liddellina’s chest and shook her violently. Liddellina was shocked and couldn’t react to the sudden violence.

“It hurts!”

That was Hannah’s cry, and Liddellina’s body became lighter and she collapsed onto the sofa due to the recoil.

“What do you think you’re doing, attacking my wife!”

As she looked up at Friedrich’s voice, Hannah’s arm was being twisted.


Friedrich’s eyes widen as he looks at Liddellina’s face.

“Liddellina, your cheek is red. Why did you hit Liddellina, you scoundrel!”

Liddellina is even afraid at the momentum of Friedrich’s anger. But Hannah is still arrogant.

Liddellina clings to the sofa, trembling.


She calls for the servants weakly. And to her surprise, the soldiers come in. Friedrich pushes Hannah out and tells them.

“Hey, cut off this girl’s right arm.”

Liddellina feels like her legs are giving out. But she can’t panic here.

Hannah is dragged away, cursing the servants and soldiers instead of being afraid.

“Please stop. Husband!”

Liddellina shouted.

“Since she have injured the lord’s wife, it is only fair to cut off that arm. This is an insult to the lord.”

There was the cold Friedrich she had met when they first met.

“That’s obviously not right. Please stop!”

Liddellina screams and protects Hannah, who is being taken away. Howard and Dorothy also come to see what is going on.

“Why, Liddellina. You was insulted and injured. It’s only natural to punish her.”

But Friedrich won’t accept it.

“What are you talking about! Get a grip. This is not a battlefield. What are you going to do by cutting off the arm of a lady who has a future? If you insist, I’ll stop being your wife. Then she won’t have insulted the lord, will she?”

Even though she was aware that she was saying something that didn’t make sense, she had to stop his violent actions at all costs. It was unacceptable to have an arm cut off just because her cheek was slapped. Friedrich then turned to the soldiers.

“The punishment is cancelled. Kick this woman out of the castle right now.”

He calmed his anger by taking a deep breath and shaking his shoulders, then turned on his heel. For now, Liddellina was relieved.

Hannah is being dragged away by the soldiers while still yelling.

“Hey, you”ve got to be kidding me! My luggage is still here!”

It’s true that it would be a problem if she left her luggage behind. After all, it will just be thrown away.

“Dorothy, can you tell someone who has a free hand to pack her luggage?”

Dorothy’s face clouds over, which is unusual.

“If it’s Okusama’s order, then of course, but please allow me to say one thing! Is it really okay to just drive her out of here without any punishment?”

Liddellina was surprised by Dorothy’s fierce side, which is usually calm.

“Yes, you must have had an unpleasant experience too.”

Liddellina sympathizes with her feelings.

“No, Okusama has been having a hard time.”

Liddellina’s heart warms at Dorothy’s feelings. She is getting angry for Liddellina’s sake.

“Even so, I think it’s not good to leave a bad legacy in this way.”

“A bad legacy…?”

Liddellina chooses her words carefully, thinking that a cruel and barbaric approach is not good.

“Yes, if my husband leaves a scar on someone’s body that will last a lifetime, he will be hated. That’s why I don’t think that’s a good way to do things.”

Dorothy opens her eyes wide in surprise.

“Okusama is thinking about the future… I will follow you from now on. I will take responsibility for packing her luggage right away!”

Dorothy looks at her with sparkling eyes, which makes Liddellina feel a little uncomfortable.

“You hypocrite, don’t get too big for your britches!”

Liddellina hears Franny and O’Neill’s voices snarling at her. They are very bold when Friedrich is not around.

However, they are looking at her with narrowed eyes, but still carrying the luggage with both hands and heading towards the entrance in a dignified manner. They are about to be driven out of this mansion.

“Hey, stop it.”

“It’s disrespectful to Okusama.”

The soldiers and servants are scolded by Franny and O’Neill. They must have been holding a grudge. Surrounded by returning soldiers, they are being dragged towards the entrance.

However, Hannah does not seem to be satisfied and says loudly,

“You think you covered for me?! Friedrich-sama wouldn’t have cut off my arm even if you hadn’t told him. I really hate you!”

You don’t think Friedrich in that state isn’t serious? Liddellina is amazed.

“I hate you too. That’s why don’t ever show your face in front of me again.”

Saying this, Liddellina turned her back on them.
