It was the morning of the third day since Owenna arrived.

As I was walking down the corridor of the castle, she suddenly appeared and grabbed my arm.

“What’s your relationship with Theodore-sama?”

“Eh. . .”

I couldn’t answer immediately. I didn’t understand the intention of her question, it was abrupt, and being grabbed and glared at made my mind go blank.

She raised her dark eyebrows and clicked her tongue, distorting her red lips.

“He never lets me be alone with him, and he’s very guarded. Chloe-san, can’t you help me establish a relationship with him?”

“Establish a relationship?”

I took a deep breath.

“. . . Even if you say establish a relationship, Owenna-san is the Countess Strelitzi, isn’t she? It’s unlikely that a man would be alone with such a person, and I don’t understand the intention of establishing a relationship. . .”

“I’m not officially the Countess Strelitzi yet.”

“Eh?”

Owenna smirked.

“Nobles can’t remarry immediately after a divorce, right? They say it’s because if the divorced woman happens to be pregnant, there would be a problem determining who the father of the child is. I thought there might be an exception since it was a white marriage, but there’s no such thing and remarriage isn’t allowed for a year. So. . . if it’s impossible for my daughter, I can become the Margravine.”

I felt like my heart was going to stop.

My head was spinning, and I didn’t know what to say. She peered into my face and laughed.

“Hey, Chloe-san. You’re just a tutor, right? Then please support me so that he and I can get married. Anne is attached to you, and you and I understand each other, don’t you think everything will work out? Let’s start a new life together.”

“. . . I, am. . .”

At that moment, I imagined Theodore-sama standing next to Owenna as a couple.

The fantasy of Theodore-sama, his gentle silver hair fluttering, gazing at Owenna with a dreamy look.

ーーI felt like I was about to collapse from a violent sadness, as if I had been hit hard on the head.

“. . . Owenna-san. . .”

“Oh, a knight is coming. It seems I’ve caught his eye. I’m going.”

Owenna clicked her tongue and suddenly let go of me.

As I watched her leave like a storm, I sat down weakly in a corner of the castle.

“. . . What a shameful feeling I have now. . .”

When I imagined Owenna and Theodore-sama standing side by side, what came to my mind was a certainーーundeniably jealousy, a disgusting, muddy emotion.

I am neither his wife nor his fiancée. Yet I was afraid of him being taken away.

It was a sticky emotion, different from the emptiness, loneliness, and sadness I felt while Stephan was being taken away from me during my previous marriage.

“I. . . have fallen for Theodore-sama. . .”

I heard the children’s voices calling and snapped back to reality.

I slapped my cheeks, put on my teacher’s face, and headed towards the children.
