What to do next? It seems Lord Montyver is hesitating.

“The news of Leon・Von・Montyver’s death can be retracted, and it’s okay to live as Marion. His Majesty has said so but. . . . . .”

In Binemöer, the name Marion can be given to both men and women. It seems the king has said it’s okay to announce that Princess Marion is actually a male and a prince.

“Even so, to name me Marion, my mother chose such a terrible name.”

The name Marion appears to mean “sea of suffering.”

Since Binemöer is known as a country by the sea, as Princess Marion, struggling and suffering yet continuing to swim in the vast sea of life――this must be the meaning, Lord Montyver explains.

“Um, Leon-sama. The name Marion is known in Vulcano, but do you know that it has other meanings as well?”

“Huh? I don’t know.”

“The name Marion also means ‘desired child,’ ‘rebellion,’ ‘queen of the sea.'”

These meanings are likely also included in the name Marion, which Lord Montyver’s Okaa-sama has thought of.

“So you’re saying I can either ascend to the throne as a queen while disguising my gender, or start a rebellion and become king?”

“Yes. It’s just my imagination, though.”

“That’s way too straightforward. . . . . .”

“Even if you don’t desire those things, I believe the name carries a wish for you, Leon-sama, to grow up as a child who can achieve anything if you wish, filled with various possibilities.”

“I see. . . . . .So that’s what it was.”

It seems that Lord Montyver has come to accept the name Marion.

“Lara, I’ve decided. From now on, I will live as Marion.”

Lord Montyver, now known as Princess Marion, declares with a relieved expression.

I hope I can be someone who can support him in this way.

🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸

I had resolved to return to Vulcano, but in the end, I decided to stay in Binemöer.

As for the Duke Mendoza family, I will continue to maintain the freeze on their titles and properties.

I intended to leave the decision about what to do in the future to the grown-up Florenci.

This time, I’ll look for a place to live.

Thinking that, Prince Marion came to visit me.

He said to me the exact words he said when we first met.

“Lara, from now on, you can live in my house.”

It was exactly the same, so I inadvertently laughed.

Of course, not only I but also Florenci could live together. He said he has prepared a room for the Marchioness.

It seemed like he had crushed all my reasons for refusing.

This time, let’s be honest without being defensive.

However, I wasn’t going to accept his proposal as it was.

“I have one request.”

“What? I’ll listen to anything!”

“I think it’s questionable to accept before hearing the content. . . . . .”

Speaking to him, who was listening to my story, I voiced my request.

“Why don’t we buy a new house in the name of Leon-sama and me?”

“You and me, our new house?”

“Yes.”

I thought it was questionable to become dependent on someone now that I had found my place in this country.

“I want a house that belongs to no one else, our house.”

I glanced at Prince Marion, wondering what he would think.

Then, he nodded, his eyes sparkling.

“I think it’s a good idea. Lara, let’s find a house just for us with Ren!”

I bowed my head to Prince Marion.

“I’m inexperienced, but I appreciate your kindness.”

Returning those words, Prince Marion smiled with relief.

Then I searched for a new house with Ren and Prince Marion.

We discussed together, looking at used properties.

The Marchioness said it would be nice if it were a new building, but it was difficult on my earnings.

Prince Marion understood that and agreed.

In the end, we chose a single-story house similar in ambiance to the Marquis family’s cottage.

Though the house had a history of nearly a hundred years, it seemed well cared for, with no flaws.

It was a lovely house.

From today, this is our castle.

It was a house like a treasure that we had obtained after much trouble.

Afterward, I started a support group with the Marchioness for people in weak positions and struggling in life. I teach lace knitting with Ga-chan there, which doesn’t strain the eyes.

It was a blissful space where everyone doted on Ga-chan.

Every day, I hope that there will be no one who suffers misfortune like I did before time rewound.

One question was why time had rewound.

When I confided in Prince Marion, he easily believed me.

Apparently, in Binemöer, there is a legend about the goddess of destiny.

In this world, there seems to be a goddess who governs people’s fate.

She spins the thread using a spinning wheel, guiding fate.

Apparently, there are fairy spiders to assist her.

The fairies are kind-hearted and, if there is an unfortunate human, they steal the eyes of the goddess of destiny and rewind time by turning the spinning wheel backward.

Maybe Ga-chan went to the goddess of destiny and changed my fate.

However, when I asked Ga-chan, she just tilted her head cutely with a “[Nya?].”

Perhaps the truth is something only Ga-chan knows.

🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸

As the new royalty, Prince Marion, who appeared in front of everyone, is taking on public duties in place of Ghodrove, who has been restrained as a criminal, and is spending busy days.

I was just waiting for his return home.

Today, as well, Ga-chan told me that Prince Marion had returned.

I waited for him at the entrance and greeted him.

“Lara, I’m home!”

“Welcome back, Leon-sama.”

Such daily life was a modest happiness that I hadn’t even wished for.
