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 30

Chapter 30: Husband Remembers the past 2

“I checked the office first, but I couldn’t find anything. So, I’m going to try looking for rooms that I used to use when I was a child or rooms that are not being used.”

“Is that the same thing as searching the castle?”

“Yeah, I looked through the castle roughly, but there doesn’t seem to be any clues.”

“Did you go around the entire castle and look at everything?”

He have amazing motivation

“There are so many rooms, it’s impossible to search them all thoroughly, but I tried my best. Did you live in this castle and not notice anything?”

“I only went to the office on the first and second floors and my room, so I didn’t.”

Friedrich says, surprised.

“That’s why.”

“Because I was living in a separate mansion until Husband returned, I thought it would be rude to enter places that had nothing to do with me.”

“Liddellina, I’m really sorry for making you feel cramped.”

He bows his head dejectedly.

“No, I didn’t mean it like that. Actually, I was very busy with work, so I didn’t have time.”

She wasn’t interested.

“Even though I treated you coldly, you honestly did your job.”

“That’s not true. I thought the treatment was very good. The conversations with Husband were through letters, but during his absence I enjoyed making a workshop and improving the hot spring.”

Liddellina smiles. She really enjoyed talking with Howard and listening to Dorothy’s opinions. This place was the best, both as a workplace and as a place to live.

“Do you want to make the facilities you’re working on now bigger? If so, let’s work hard together. But if you want to do it alone, I’ll support you with funding.”

Her husband respects Liddellina’s feelings.

“Thank you.”

Friedrich happily smiles at Liddellina’s words.

But when she receives such a kind offer, she can’t help but think.

“Is my husband worried because he doesn’t have any memories now?”

“Of course, I’m a little worried, but Liddellina is here, the household staff are honest and hardworking, and Tony is reliable, so it’s okay.”

If his memories returned and he started rejecting Liddellina again, it would be inconvenient… or rather, she have a feeling that would be more hurtful than good.

“… wouldn’t it be better to just relax and let time take its course?”

Is this Liddellina’s selfish thought? As her husband, he might be worried and as his wife, she should try to help in some way.

“Is the current me better than the previous me?”

It’s difficult to answer that.

“…I didn’t know Husband previous very well. We didn’t talk much, so I can’t answer.”

“I see.”

He nods.

Liddellina doesn’t have the right to stop him. But if the previous “him” suppressed his emotions, it’s likely that something significant happened, so she wonders if it’s really necessary to remember the past.

She was happy before she found out about Gilbert’s (Liddellina ex-fiance) betrayal. Not knowing can also lead to a joyful life. Which is better for him, or for her? Liddellina’s feelings are wavering.

“Liddellina, I made a very rude contract with you.”

Friedrich says flatly.

“No, I saw it as an employment contract and didn’t think about it. And I”ve received a lot of pocket money.”

Liddellina asserts this, and he looks shocked.

“Isn’t that the problem? As a wife, isn’t it strange for a husband to adopt a child from his own relatives? Isn’t it a foolish story? In such a case, it’s usually the woman, you, who is spoken ill of in society.”

“No, regarding that, my husband said that… due to injuries from the war… he couldn’t have children.”

It’s hard to say and she’s hesitant.

“What! Is that true?!”

He opens his eyes wide and stands up, causing the chair to creak. His body is large, so it’s a little intimidating.

“I-I don’t really know for sure. “He” said that he takes responsibility for it and will protect me.”

But Friedrich is shaking and trembling.

“What a thing. It might be better to ask the doctor. Yeah. I’ll ask Tony. He’s been with me since the dormitory days, so he might know something.”

“Husband, Andrea-sama is currently in the bath house. Why don’t you wait until after he leaves?

Again, he’s trying to rush off.

“In that case, I’ll go to the bath with him. Sorry, but can you continue organizing the documents?”

Leaving those words behind, he left the room with a blue face. Liddellina wonders if she said something unnecessary.

After a while, perhaps because he went into the bath house, he returned with a refreshed face.

“It’s okay, Liddellina, it seems that there are no problems for me. I even confirmed it with the doctor.”

He’s in a good mood.

“that’s…”

Should she say it’s good? In the end, she doesn’t know how to answer and her face turns red.

He notices her demeanor and becomes flustered.

“I’m sorry. I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have talked to the lady like this. Ah, and Tony will stay overnight again tomorrow.”

That’s a relief. Just the two of them having a meal feels awkward. So, after clearing her throat, Liddellina announced her plans for tomorrow.

“I want to go check out the hot spring by the river now. Is that okay?”

“In that case, I’ll go too.”

Friedrich immediately tries to follow.

“Husband, you have guests to entertain. And today, I want to consider what kind of hot spring is easy for women to use, so I’ll bring Dorothy.”

She also wants to hear the voices of the users. If Friedrich is there, they get nervous and it’s difficult to get honest opinions.

“Yeah, that’s true. I understand.”

Friedrich nods with a visibly disappointed expression.
