“Oh! I knew His Majesty’s secret wine would be delectable!”
The party is in full swing, and a nobleman and a knight are clamoring for a wine bottle in one corner of the hall.
Marquess Metzelder and Gustav
Has it ever been a disaster to borrow more than 10 bottles of His Majesty’s wine at a party?
“Fufufu… But I suppose those two might get along quite well…”
“I-Is that so?”
“Yes—it could be because of the alcohol, but they are very close.”
I looked at them again when Liz said that… True, the distance between them appears to be quite close for a social gathering.
“Gustav has dedicated himself to chivalry and honed his swordsmanship—He is still single.”
“…Her Excellency Metzelder was single as well…”
This may be a possibility…
“I suppose I’ll have to take the lead for both of them.”
Gustav was knighted, but he was once a commoner.
The Marquess of Metzelder, on the other hand, is one of the country’s most powerful nobles. These two would cause unnecessary hostility if they’re together.
We must make it a country where they experience only blessings.
“Fufu… They might be the first two people to embody Dee-sama’s ideals.”
“Oh, I’m hoping that happens.”
Liz and I both smiled as we looked at them.
“Your Majesty, Actually, I have a favor to ask of you…”
The Marquis of Friedenreich stated this with unusual seriousness.
“What exactly is it? Of course, if it’s my father-in-law’s request, I’d gladly oblige.”
“Yes. Actually, my wife has come here from the main house to be treated for her illness… Would you mind seeing her?”
“Please allow me to see my mother-in-law if that is the case.”
According to Liz, my mother-in-law was saved by our prayers, but she is still not completely cured.
So I was told that she was always at the Marquis’s estate’s main residence, and I had yet to meet her.
“De-Dee-sama—are you certain you don’t mind…”
“What’s the matter, Liz?”
For some reason, Liz appears to be hesitant about my meeting my mother-in-law.
“Okasama’s illness could spread to Dee-sama…”
“What, just something small like that?”
Liz, who was looking down with a sad expression, nodded lightly.
“True, there’s a chance that might happen. But I’d like to thank my mother-in-law even more for giving birth to Liz and raising her to be such a wonderful daughter. She, like Liz, must be a wonderful woman.
Liz is still trying to stop me, but I smile back.
“I am sure that your Highness’ words will please my wife.”
“Umu, when I become king, I will have to study my mother-in-law’s illness with the whole country.”
Liz sobbed and pressed her cheek against my chest.
Marquis Friedenreich led me to the room where my mother-in-law was staying.
“It’s me—I’m coming in.”
We enter after Marquise Friedenreich knocks.
My mother-in-law was asleep in her bed.
Her cheeks are very thin, as are her neck and arms, which protrude from the comforter.
“Fufu… Marguerite, what’s the problem? You’re completely awestruck. Ara? Are you, by chance, His Highness Dietrich?!”
“Pleased to meet you, mother-in-law.”
My mother-in-law was surprised to see me.
As I approached her, I knelt by her bedside, grabbed her slender hand, and kissed it.
“Y-Your highness?! If you do that, you will catch my illness!”
“Certainly not. I can’t accept being rude to my mother-in-law out of fear of her illness.”
I smiled at my mother-in-law, who was doing her best not to spread her illness to me.
“Rather, please accept my apologies for not seeing my mother-in-law in a year and a half.”
“P-Please raise your head!”
My worried mother-in-law urged me to raise my head after I bowed deeply and apologized.
I slowly raised my head and turned my gaze to my mother-in-law.
“Okasama…This Dee-sama is the one I love.”
“Yes, yes! As a mother, I am overjoyed that such an amazing man will be with Marguerite!”
My mother-in-law burst into tears when she said this.
But I’m glad she likes me.
“Mother-in-law, we’re about to enter the Royal Academy—and when we graduate, we will marry and become husband and wife.”
“Would you mind seeing Liz in her wedding gown?”
“Yes…! I will undoubtedly attend your wedding…!
“I look forward to your kind cooperation.”
“Okasama! Thank you…!!”
Liz, who is crying alongside me, bows deeply toward my mother-in-law.
