“. . .Stephan. . .”

With her lips trembling, she looked up at Stephan with a stunned face, her tears dried up. Her flashy dress was torn, her hair was a mess, and she was abandoned by the only man she could rely onーーshe had become the most pitiful woman in this place.

As I was about to approach her, Nowariya, a maid who was sitting nearby, offered her a handkerchief. Owenna opened her big eyes wide and began to cry like a child.

“. . .I did such a terrible thing to you. . . Why. . .”

Nowariya just shook her head, wiped Owenna’s tears, and straightened the hem of her disheveled skirt. Stephan clicked his tongue at Owenna and glared at Theodore-sama.

“That’s why I want you to judge this woman, not me. Do whatever you want with her. . . Ah, I should have kept her as my mistress. If I had known that Chloe was an important woman, I would have. . .”

While I was frightened by Stephan’s excitement, I quietly looked around at the people.

The notary who was writing something down smoothly.

The Prime Minister and the house steward, exchanging glances with Theodore-sama.

And Simon, who was sitting at the end of the table, watching the situation with a blank expression.

When I looked at Theodore-sama, he smiled softly at me with just his eyes.

He shot Stephan a cold look again.

“I understand your complaint. However, unfortunately, sheーーLady Owenna has already been officially recognized as Countess Strelitzi. Therefore, she is your associate.”

“That’s a lie. It can’t be.”

Stephan shook his head. I agreed with him on this matter.

Under the general laws of the kingdom, nobles are not allowed to remarry or get engaged for a year after divorce. That’s why Owenna was after Theodore-sama.

“Tell me, Count Strelitzi. Who handled the divorce and marriage procedures?”

“The procedures for divorce and marriage are handled by the household. I left the procedures to Chloe and just signed. At that time, they were just ordinary divorce and marriage documents, and there was nothing strange about them, right?”

Next to Theodore-sama, I nodded.

“Simon, the former butler of the Maclouge family, is familiar with how to prepare the documents, so I made them while learning from him. After that, I got a signature from my ex-husband and handed the documents to Simon to submit to the royal capital. . .”

“That’s right, that’s right. I checked it, so Simon can’t do anything cunning like the magic stone mine case. What on earth. . . Don’t tell me, .”

Startled, Stephan and I looked at Simon at the same time.

“Well, Simon. Show them.”

Theodore-sama urged Simon in a calm manner.

Simon, who nodded, stood up, bowed, and spread out a piece of paper.
