The Marchioness and Florenci, with Annie and Lloyd, made a trip to the museum.

It seemed they had hired a few extra maids, assuming there wouldn’t be enough hands.

Thanks to that, I gained a little bit of spare time.

It’s my first time attending a soirée in Binemöer.

There may be differences in manners and such from Vulcano.

Feeling anxious, I sent a letter of consultation to Rachael.

In response, she paid me a quick visit.

The conservatory is in full bloom with almond flowers.

Since I had permission from the Marchioness to use it freely, I had tea with Rachael.

Rachael brings Ga-chan a souvenir of sugar cubes scented with violets.

Ga-chan raised the sugar cubes high and conveyed gratitude to Rachael.


Of course, Rachael and I were healed by the adorable Ga-chan.

“I was surprised, my grandmother asked you to attend the queen’s birthday party on her behalf.”

“Yes, I was also surprised by the sudden request.”

“My grandmother seems to like Lara-san very much.”

Rachael put her hand on her chest, muttered “thank goodness,” and showed relief.

“After all, my grandmother and Lara-san got along well. I can rest assured of leaving you as her proxy.”

“About that, there are a few things that I am anxious about. . . . . .”

The most concerning thing is the dress. I brought a few from Vulcano to wear for the soirée, but they might be a bit plain to wear as Marchioness’s representative.

And there’s the fashion in Binemöer. I can’t stand out negatively by wearing a Vulcano dress.

“For the dress, I’ll arrange to have a few sent from a designer I know. I’ll arrange for a maid on the day, so there’s nothing to worry about.”

“Can I really rely on you that much?”

“Of course. The fact that my grandmother has gotten better is thanks to Lara-san, and no amount of gratitude would suffice.”

It feels bad to have her taken care of so much, but I can’t attend the queen’s birthday party looking shabby.

I’ll take her up on her offer this time.

“Do you have to attend with someone on the day?”


“In that case, let’s go together.”

“But, don’t you have a fiancé?”

“Yes, but I can’t leave Lara-san alone in the den called the social world.”

Usually, you must attend a soirée with a partner.

Although it’s permissible to attend with acquaintances, it’s generally better to go as a man and woman.

“Should I introduce you to Lyle-oniisama?”

“Lyle-san, the cousin who is the next head of the family—?”

I remember hearing about the young man, Irma’s brother, before.

“I remember hearing that he is thirty, doesn’t he have a fiancée?”

“They broke off recently. Lyle-oniisama is strict with himself and others, and seems to demand proper behavior from his partner.”

“Oh, I see. . . . . .”

If a lady born and raised in Binemöer is daunted by him, then I won’t stand a chance.

Rachael must have noticed that too. She apologized in an awkward manner.

“I’m sorry. He’s not someone I can introduce as a partner.”

The current Marquis is irresponsible and carefree, while Lyle is said to be too strict.

“I think if we add a little bit of our grandfather’s essence to Lyle-oniisama, he’ll become a well-balanced Marquis.”

“It’s quite a difficult problem, isn’t it?”

There are no perfect people in this world.

Perhaps it’s because of our flaws that people support each other and live.

“What about Lord Montyver? I believe he is also single.”

“As for him. . . . . .well. . . . . .”

I honestly confessed that our dispositions did not match.

“Really? I also find him somewhat off-putting. He feels artificial to me.”

“Artificial, you say?”

“Yes. It feels as if he is obscuring everything with his brightness, and his true feelings cannot be seen.”

Indeed, he does give the impression of living cheerfully to fit the mood of the moment.

“It’s not exactly that he’s deceitful, but he does seem to carry darkness in the depths of his eyes.”

“I totally get it!”

I wouldn’t mind being acquainted with Lord Montyver if it were just a momentary relationship.

But when dealing with someone with whom I must associate for a long time, I could not afford to owe him a great debt.

“If my son were older, he could have participated with us.”

“A six-year-old can’t do that.”

As we were discussing this, we were called.

“What’s impossible?”

The person who was there when we turned around was Lord Montyver, who we had been talking about just moments ago.
