Usually, malice is something invisible.

But now, standing right before my eyes, with an eerie smile, was Prince Ghodrove, who could be called the very embodiment of malice.

“Mrs. Dosa has ingratiated herself with Marchioness Falkenhigh and has become her favorite. Moreover, she tried to seduce Leon and control him as she pleased.”

Worrying about the exuberant Lord Montyver, Prince Ghodrove said he had ordered an investigation into me.

“I sent a maid who is in my service to the Marquis’ house. Despite being treated terribly by Mrs. Dosa, she brought back the truth.”

To think, the kind maid who had been coming and going to the cottage was Prince Ghodrove’s minion. I hadn’t noticed at all.

“She reported that Mrs. Dosa was wearing the queen’s necklace and laughing loudly. The shocking truth was revealed one after the other. Mrs. Dosa was indeed the “Wicked Woman of Vulcano.”

As if he had had enough, Prince Ghodrove began to expose my non-existent wicked deeds.

“Mrs. Dosa has conspired with a male relative in Vulcano and resold the items she swindled from the nobles of Binemöer. The queen’s necklace may have already been sold.”

The male relative must be my uncle. Here, suspicion that Prince Ghodrove was connected with my uncle turned into certainty.

All the suspicions converged on one point.

The source of the misfortune before time rewound was Prince Ghodrove.

Prince Ghodrove was speaking smoothly and fluently like a stage actor.

I glared at him with a mix of anger and disbelief.

“She was not content with just getting the queen’s necklace; she also targeted my life. In other words, the one who attacked to assassinate me yesterday was sent by her! Mrs. Dosa was the real culprit of the incident!”

Prince Ghodrove turned to his knight and quietly gave an order.

“My knights, please arrest Mrs. Dosa.”

The moment Prince Ghodrove’s royal knight rushed towards me, a clear voice rang out.

“――Prince Engelbert and Princess Marion are here!”

I couldn’t believe my ears.

I looked towards the door, and there appeared an extraordinary beauty dressed in a snow-white dress, escorted by Prince Engelbert.

The moment I saw him, I sat down on the spot.

Princess Marion was unmistakably Lord Montyver.

He was alive.

Probably the most surprised was Prince Ghodrove.

His eyes were wide open as if they were about to fall out.

“Wha――Engelbert, what is going on?!”

“Marion wanted to thank mother, so I brought her.”

“Thank? For what. . . . . .?”

Princess Marion gently touched the sparkling necklace on her chest.

“What, that?!”

“She seems to have received a necklace from her mother for her birthday.”

The queen’s necklace, which was supposed to have been stolen, was being worn by Princess Marion.

“Is mother not here?”

“The Queen should be with the critically ill Marchioness Falkenhigh――”

“The Marchioness, is that so?”

The one Prince Engelbert turned to was the Marchioness.

“How was it? I’ve been forgetful lately, perhaps it’s my age.”

I realized then. The Marchioness must have arrived later than me to carry out this farce.

Princess Marion is fanning herself, whispering to Prince Engelbert.

She voiced her thoughts, and Prince Engelbert, in turn, addressed them to Prince Ghodrove.

“Uncle. Marion seems to be curious about what kind of amusing tale you were telling with everyone. Could you please tell us?”

“No, it’s about the queen’s necklace――”

Continuing on, Princess Marion whispers to Prince Engelbert.

“Yes, yes. It seems she really likes it. She had been keeping it precious, but wanted everyone to see it, so she came to show it off today.”

Once again, it becomes noisy. Even though the royal knights are telling them to be quiet, it seems no one is listening.

It’s not unreasonable.

Because it was Princess Marion, who is of the same royal family, who had the necklace thought to have been stolen.

Prince Ghodrove couldn’t back down here either.

He seemed to force his opinion through.

“Engelbert, the necklace that Marion is wearing, was the item stolen from the queen. Didn’t you know about the commotion?”

The one who answered Prince Ghodrove’s question was an unexpected person.

“It seems that was my misunderstanding.”

The owner of a clear, resonant voice appeared.

It was the queen, accompanied by the royal concubine concubine.

“Ghodrove, that necklace is a gift I gave to Princess Marion when I was drunk. There is no mistake.”

“What――?!”

“I seem to have lost the memory of giving it to her as soon as I sobered up.”

Prince Ghodrove was left gaping, seemingly at a loss for words.
