No way. What the hell is going on? Hey!
What, what, what, what? She’s as smart as a monkey, that’s what they’ll say.
They’d call you a monkey, and you’d say, “Cute.”… It’s beyond my imagination, beyond my comprehension.
Is this woman really from Ezersta? The country bumpkin in front of you has better language skills than you do.
What kind of education did Count Arzel give her? Compared to Charlotte, how could she possibly be…?
“Leanhardt-kun. I was going to laugh at your silly misunderstanding and let it slide…”
That’s not good. That’s not funny.
How rude I’ve been.
Trying to push a girl I don’t even care about onto him…
It’s all Miri’s fault. I was just swayed by this woman’s stupid remarks.
Anyway, I have to tell His Highness that…
That’s right. It’s not my fault. It’s all her fault!
She’s the one who lied to me!
Be cool, be cool, Leanhardt.
“Yes, sir! Thank you! Oh, excuse Miri’s stupidity. I can’t believe I took her words so twisted…”
Anyway, it’s an excuse.
You may think it’s not nice for a man to make long excuses, but I don’t care about that.
The most important thing here is not to aggravate His Highness Alfred’s mood any further.
It’s still all right. We can still start over. I still have a chance to clear up the misunderstanding.
Do your best to explain. Tell them it’s all Miri’s fault.
“No, I’m referring to what came after. You slapped a woman in the face, didn’t you? Is that what a gentleman of Ezersta nobility would do?”
“Slapped her? I slapped a woman in the…”
Oh, my God!
I was so angry that I slapped Milim! This is not good. If my father finds out about this, he’ll disown me!!
He might say that my brother is the heir.
I mean, usually I’d hit you. If you embarrass me by saying something stupid like that.
But I shouldn’t have hit her, no matter how stupid she is. This is a very bad impression…
It’s not so much that I hit my fiancée… I shouldn’t have hit Alfred’s fiancée’s sister.
My family has contacts with some of the most important nobles in neighboring countries who are on friendly terms with the royal family of Albania.
If my father’s name is damaged, I will… I will…
“I-It hurts! Fu~eeeee! Leanhardt-sama’s an idioooooooot!!!”
No! Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!
I didn’t hit you that hard!
You took too long to feel the pain after I hit you!
Goddamn it! She’s all to blame! Damn! If only I had known she was such a disappointment, both in character and in her head!
“Anyway, I’ll make sure your father knows what happened today. It would be better for the duke’s family.”
“No, no, no! Please, please forgive me! I’m only doing what’s best for his highness Alfred!”
I can’t let you tell Father.
I have to avoid it, or I’m done for…
Alfredo, don’t be hasty. I’m on your side.
“For my best, huh? You were just trying to force me to marry your ex-fiancee, weren’t you? Don’t get smart with me… Or are you making fun of me?”
“No, no, not at all… But I don’t want you to…”
“That’s enough. Your excuses make me sick. Now, will you get out of my sight? Otherwise, I’ll have to tell your father more, won’t I?”
No! No! No! No! No!
W-What am I going to do? I can’t stop shaking.
My heart is palpitating, and I’m short of breath…
Oh, I’m ruined… I’m done…
