For the past few days, Kathleen-oneesama had been infatuated with the knight commander, George-sama. She was already a woman loved by many, having captured the hearts of countless men. If such a woman were to be offered to a masked mage, it could cause a riot amongst the men in the country.
Fergie-oneesama already had a lover, and Mabel remembered being introduced to him.
Fergie-oneesama was usually reserved and didn’t show her feelings much, but at that moment, she smiled happily next to him. Seeing that, Mabel couldn’t help but feel overjoyed.
There was no way she could tear apart such a happy couple.
“…I understand. I’ll go.”
“Just as I expected from you.”
Travis easily accepted Mabel’s words, which she had squeezed out after much deliberation, and smiled as if he had foreseen it all. This guy was quite good-looking, but his personality was really hard to stomach.
“Just to confirm, this is just to buy time, right? Even if I fail, it can’t be helped.”
“Yes. It is the consensus of the council that we would like you to do your best if possible.”
Upon hearing that, Mabel let out a deep sigh.
―And so, the fifth princess was to marry a suspicious man she had never even seen before, in order to protect the country from a looming threat.
