Well, since I am employed by the Duke Marcus family, it is only natural that I protect my older brother, who is the head of the family.

We both stare at each other, wearing the same expression of โ€œWhat is this person talking about?โ€

โ€œBut, from now on, you will serve Onii-sama, right? I am no longer in a position to employ Cid. I will just be Viara, a fallen girl.โ€

โ€œA fallen girl doesnโ€™t have that much money.โ€

โ€œOh, right.โ€

Indeed, thatโ€™s true. In my bag, there are coins that can buy a house, although itโ€™s only half the amount Onii-sama intended to give me.

โ€œAre you suggesting that I employ Cid with this money?โ€

If thatโ€™s the case, then maybe itโ€™s a good idea. . .

Wait, will he come with me?

However, he smiled wryly.

โ€œI donโ€™t intend to take money from Miss.โ€

โ€œThen what do you mean?โ€

He put his hand on his chin and thought seriously, then his hands gently rested on my shoulders and firmly grasped them.

โ€œVi-sama, I have realized something amazing.โ€

โ€œWhat? What is it?โ€

The sky gradually darkens. Itโ€™s almost time to depart.

When I look up at Cidโ€™s face, he is staring at me with a mixture of joy and confusion.

โ€œIf youโ€™re just a fallen girl, then I might have a chance too, right!?โ€


Whatโ€™s that supposed to mean!?

โ€œIโ€™ve decided! Iโ€™ll marry you, Miss!โ€

โ€œWait a minute!โ€

Despite my flustered state, Cid approached me forcefully, slid his hand under my knees, and held me in a sideways embrace.


I let out an unrefined scream, but Cid kicks the ground and boards the carriage.

Then he immediately signals the coachman to depart.

โ€œYes! Letโ€™s go! Take off right away!โ€

โ€œYes, sir! Aniki, I will take you anywhere!โ€

Why ? Even though Cid is clearly younger, why is he being called Aniki by an old man?

I was seated on the cushion of the carriage, staring blankly at the coachmanโ€™s seat.


What did Cid say???

From โ€œThere might be a chanceโ€ to declaring โ€œIโ€™ll marry youโ€?

Huh, what does that mean?

Did Cid just confess to me???

Wait, but he didnโ€™t say he loves me, right?

Question marks started floating above my head one after another.

My heart was pounding, and I was having trouble breathing.

Cid leaned out of the coachmanโ€™s seat, looking happy and shouting, โ€œLetโ€™s go, letโ€™s go!โ€


โ€œYes, what is it, Miss?โ€

What do you mean, โ€œWhat is it?โ€ Youโ€™re the one causing confusion here.

And if it was a proposal, couldnโ€™t it have been a bit more romantic and heart-fluttering?



Cid finally turns around and kneels in front of me. Sitting on the carriage bed, blushing with embarrassment, I asked him.

โ€œAre you serious about coming with me? We donโ€™t even know what kind of life awaits us.โ€

Is he in his right mind?

Proposing to a woman who is being chased out of the country.

But he casually says,ย 

โ€œYes, of course.โ€

โ€œDo you understand? Weโ€™re seeking asylum in Fumble, you know?โ€

โ€œOh, no. Weโ€™re changing our destination to Nice.โ€


When did that happen? You mean weโ€™re changing the ship weโ€™re boarding?

โ€œI already told Onii-sama that weโ€™re going to Fumble!โ€

โ€œItโ€™s okay. Iโ€™ll tell him later.โ€

Cid pointed to the coachman and laughed.

Isnโ€™t this considered kidnapping from Onii-samaโ€™s perspective?

Oh, but technically, it would be treated as running away from home, right?

Wait! Could it be!

โ€œDoes this count as eloping. . .?โ€

It feels like a romance novel!

I canโ€™t help but blush a little.

โ€œHuh? No, itโ€™s not. At least for now, no one has tried to stop us, so itโ€™s not eloping.โ€

Huh? Is that so?

As Iโ€™m puzzled, Cid rummages inside his robe and takes out a note. Itโ€™s written in Onii-samaโ€™s familiar handwriting, saying:

[Take care of my little sister!]

This must be a request to act as my bodyguard, right? It canโ€™t mean anything else.

As I hold the note and looked at Cid, he smiled mischievously.

โ€œI interpreted [take care ofโ€™ as โ€˜forever and ever.] In other words, it means permission to marry!โ€

โ€œYouโ€™re taking it too far!โ€

Onii-sama didnโ€™t say anything about getting married, and he didnโ€™t even think about it, right?!

Looking at me, who was flustered and confused, Cid had a big smile on his face.

โ€œI meant it when I said I want to marry you. . .?โ€

โ€œHuh, really?โ€

He said it so easily! Even though itโ€™s such an important thing,ย 

I never imagined weโ€™d both have feelings for each other.

My lips tremble, and heat rushed to my face.


However, Cid suddenly extends his right hand in front of me and stops me.ย 

In the swaying carriage, we gaze at each other.

โ€œCid. . .?โ€

โ€œI understand! I know that Miss only sees me as a bodyguard!โ€

Huh? What is he talking about?

Could it be. . .Could it be. . .

My feelings didnโ€™t get through to him at all?!

Even though I love him?

Even though Iโ€™ve been feeding him every day?!

โ€œI will wait until Miss falls in love with me! I will cherish you!โ€


โ€œTo ensure that your fiancรฉe doesnโ€™t suspect infidelity, You havenโ€™t had any contact with other men until now, right? So, I understand Missโ€™s feelings of not knowing about love!โ€

No, I have no idea how it turned out like this.

I have only had contact with you!

And I love you!

I understand love!


Cid, who is getting closer and closer, wraps both of my hands in his own and pleads with me at a distance that seems like heโ€™s about to kiss me.

โ€œFrom now on, we will always be together! We have plenty of time, so please fall in love with me.โ€

โ€œYes. . .!โ€

Please fall in love with me? What is that?!

โ€œYouโ€™re going to give me a hard time, I think, but well, letโ€™s figure it out together!โ€

โ€œYou should at least say [I wonโ€™t give you a hard time]!โ€

โ€œI wonโ€™t give you a hard time.โ€

โ€œYouโ€™re too late! Itโ€™s too slow!! Fine, Iโ€™ll give you a hard time! Itโ€™s my fault, so letโ€™s face the hardships together! Oh. . .โ€

I felt dizzy. I screamed too much. . .!

Even though Iโ€™m not a weak-willed young lady who would faint from such things, the truth is that I used too much magic when I punched the prince.

I felt lightheaded. I couldnโ€™t take it anymore.


โ€œSorry, Iโ€™m going to sleep for a bit.โ€

Before I finished speaking, I collapsed and Cid caught me in his arms. By the time we reached the harbor, I should have recovered enough to be able to say โ€œI love youโ€ to Cid.

โ€œMiss, please rest.โ€

His voice was gentle.

Wrapped in his warm arms, I closed my eyes.
