“Y-Y-You are! His Highness Alfred, the Crown Prince of the Kingdom of Albinia! Why is a man like you in the family of the Count of Arzel?!”
When I was surprised by His Highness Alfred’s visit a day earlier than expected, Leanhardt-sama, who looked more surprised than I, voiced a natural question.
The answer to that question is what I was trying to explain to you just now…
“…Why am I here? Charlotte Arzel is my fiancée. So I came here to take her as my wife.”
“Your fiancée?! Is Charlotte His Highness Alfredo’s? Isn’t that some kind of mistake?!”
His Highness Alfred tells Leanhardt-sama that he and I are engaged.
However, Leanhardt-sama can’t believe it and insists that there must be some mistake in his voice.
It is not Leanhardt-sama’s right to say that there is a mistake or anything like that…
“It’s not a mistake. I fell in love with Charlotte. And I asked her to marry me, and I came to get her. In true Albanian fashion.”
“Hm? Come to think of it, you look familiar. You’re Leanhardt, right? The Duke’s heir…”
—After explaining our relationship and how we came to be here, His Highness Alfredo looked at Leanhardt-sama’s face and said that he was familiar with him.
I’m sure you do. There is no way that Leanhardt-sama, the legitimate son of a duke, would not have attended a get-together party with the royalty of a neighboring country.
“Y-Yes. I’ve greeted His Highness Alfredo before.”
“Oh, good. I would have been rude if I remembered wrongly… So, what did Leanhardt-kun want with my fiancée, Charlotte? She looked troubled from a distance.”
“Ugh… Well, that’s… I mean, I… Charlotte and I…”
In a voice that doesn’t match his soft tone, he asks Leanhardt-sama why he was bothering me.
Even Leanhardt-sama was taken aback by this, and became sluggish.
“What is the matter with you? You are a nobleman in the Kingdom of Ezerta, a land known for its ladies and gentlemen. Were you going to do something to one woman that you could not say to another?”
“O-Of course not. I’m, no, I’m… Fiancee! Yes, I am the fiancée of Miri Arzel, the sister of Charlotte Arzel here! So, when I was trying to ask her for advice about Miri, I got a little carried away… Well, it was so private that I didn’t even want to talk about it…”
Sweating like a waterfall, Leanhardt-sama said something that could barely be excused.
I don’t want to hear about another engagement from Leanhardt-sama, so I’ll go along with that.
“Charlotte’s sister, your fiancé… —I see. I see. I’m sorry for being so rude, but I misunderstood that Charlotte was involved with a strange man.”
“Ahaha, I don’t mind at all. Hahahahaha.”
“So you’re related to me now. I’ll be your sister-in-law’s husband. Take care of me, Leanhardt-kun.”
“Yes, sir! I am honored to be so close to Your Highness!”
The longer you wait, the more you get.
So as if to embody this, Leanhardt-sama changed very quickly and bowed to His Highness Alfredo.
At any rate, it was good.
Now I can avoid his outburst.
