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 28

Chapter 28: Two-person inspection

The next day, when she went to the workshop in a carriage, Fie greeted her. Friedrich seemed surprised when he saw her, and awkwardly greeted her while stiffening his body. Meanwhile, Friedrich was fascinated by the craftsmanship.

“This is amazing.”

“T-Thank you for your praise.”

Fie’s voice trembled and she was visibly nervous.

“It’s a beautiful hair ornament.”

Friedrich took the hair ornament embedded with lapis lazuli and showed interest.

“Yes, everything Fie makes is wonderful.”

Liddellina is pleased to hear the praise for Fie’s work.

“Then I’ll buy this hair ornament.”


Liddellina and Fie looked at each other in surprise. Then Friedrich paid Fie the money on the spot and received the hair ornament.

“Liddellina, it suits you very well.”

He said this with a bashful smile, and handed the hair ornament to Liddellina.

“Thank you very much.”

Liddellina was unexpectedly pleased. It was something Friedrich had chosen himself. Liddellina didn’t usually wear ornaments, but this hair ornament was just the right size for everyday use and the design was cute.

“Did you say your name was Fie? Do you plan to expand this workshop and train apprentices?”


Fie nodded firmly, though she was still trembling. Friedrich seemed interested, so for the time being, Liddellina was relieved.

Then the two of them headed to a hot spring using the river. During the ride, Friedrich happily put the hair ornament in Liddellina’s hair.

“Ah, as I thought, it really suits you well.”

From being silent to being talkative… Liddellina was busy being confused and taken aback by his extreme changes.

And when they arrived at the hot spring, the tension ran high among the customers who had been leisurely soaking in the water.

“Y-Your lordship!”

Everyone seemed to prostrate themselves when they saw Friedrich getting off the carriage, so they quickly excused themselves from there.

“Huh. I was apparently quite feared by the people.”

Upon seeing Friedrich’s perplexed face, Liddellina smiled for the first time.

“No, I think it’s normal for people to be like that.”

“But you seem to be admired by everyone.”

“That’s not true. Anyway, Husband, what did you think of that hot spring?”

“Yeah, it’s just for male customers.”

“Yes, that’s right. The number of users has increased, but the facilities are poor and women don’t feel comfortable entering.”

“I see, so you want to invest in the facilities.”

“Yes, please, would you allow me to do that?”

Liddellina wants women to be able to fully enjoy the hot spring. She briefly considers whether, if her husband’s memories return and they are separated, she might be able to work at this hot spring.

“Of course, that’s fine. But I want you to stop using your personal funds like before. Use your allowance as an allowance, and use it properly. It’s also important to have some time for leisure.”

“Yes, I understand.”

Liddellina made a note in her mind to write down a record of this agreement, even though there was no written contract, in case his memories returned.

“Also, I don’t think I’ll be serving in the military anymore.”


Surprised by this unexpected statement, Liddellina blinked. He was a military man who was even called patron saint of this country.

“It seems that I am no longer useful on the battlefield after losing my memories. I was told that even though I have the skill with a sword, I may not be able to make calm judgments on the battlefield like before.”

“I don’t think that’s true. However, I am grateful that Husband will be here in the territory.”

This was Liddellina’s true feelings. She couldn’t manage everything alone, and the servants would also be worried.

“Oh, if that’s the case, then I’m relieved.”

Friedrich chuckled and the faint scar on his temple from a sword wound slightly creased.

No matter how much his personality or preferences changed after losing his memories, he was still Friedrich himself. He wasn’t someone else.

“Liddellina, I’ve relied on many people after losing my memories. From now on, I’m sure I’ll cause you a lot of trouble, but I’ll definitely repay you, so I want to stay with you forever.”

For now, Liddellina can only pray that he won’t change his mind even if his memories return. However, she doesn’t feel any sense of reality as his wife. It’s just that he seems to have changed from a cold employer to a kind one.
