The Poison-Loving Young Lady Wants to Get Married โ€“ Chapter 10

The dress I put my spirit into is violet, the same color as my eyes, with a slim design that accentuates my figure. The skirt, layered many times over, falls straight down without puffing out. The shoes, tied with a ribbon at the ankle, are also made of the same violet fabric.

โ€œYou look beautiful, Ellen-sama.โ€

โ€œThank you, Hanna. I have to put my spirit into attending the evening party from today.โ€

โ€œDo your best. Iโ€™m cheering for you.โ€

Stephan, who was waiting by the carriage, also had a face that seemed to say โ€œฮฃ(๏ฝฅo๏ฝฅ;) .โ€

โ€œDonโ€™t look at me like that. Itโ€™s embarrassing.โ€

โ€œYou look very beautiful today as well.โ€

โ€œThank you.โ€

I place my hand on the one offered to me and get into the carriage. Until now, Samuel was always with me, but from tonight, I will be alone. Itโ€™s my first evening party to attend alone.

I consciously straighten my back.

The venue for the evening party is brightly lit, with lights set up in the garden. From the open windows, the melody played by the orchestra and the murmuring of the guests overflowed.

โ€œOh, Ellen. I didnโ€™t think youโ€™d attend. Are you okay now?โ€

โ€œYes, Iโ€™m completely fine.โ€

โ€œI didnโ€™t think he would do such a thing. People canโ€™t be judged by their appearances.โ€

โ€œIโ€™ve forgotten all about it.โ€

โ€œThatโ€™s the spirit. There are still plenty of good men out there.โ€

โ€œYes, thank you.โ€

I was able to talk and laugh because the person who spoke to me was my childhood friend, Sophie. Thanks to her, my tension eased considerably. Friends are indeed valuable.

I was approached and sympathized with everywhere. I was prepared for it, but I gradually got tired of being seen as a โ€œwoman who was hurt but is bravely trying to recover.โ€ Itโ€™s slowly eating away at me. I take a cold drink from a waiter and decide to go out to the terrace. I want to feel the wind.

โ€œOh, Ellen-sama. It must have been tough for you. If it were me, I would have been bedridden. Itโ€™s amazing that youโ€™ve recovered so quickly and are looking for your next partner.โ€

โ€œThank you for your concern. Excuse me.โ€

A troublesome person has come to bother me.

This young lady once had feelings for a certain man, but when he rejected her, he brought up my name. As a result, she holds a grudge against me. Itโ€™s an undeserved misfortune.

โ€œWould you wait? Letโ€™s talk.โ€

โ€œIf itโ€™s about Ferguson-sama, I have nothing to do with it. Iโ€™ve never even met him. My name was just used.โ€

โ€œ!โ€

I included the nuance of โ€œHe just wanted to reject youโ€ in my words, and it seems to have gotten through. The lady, taken aback for a moment, tried to splash wine on me.

The weak ladyโ€™s movements were slow, and I was able to easily dodge them. I twisted my upper body and smoothly moved to the side. With a small sound, the red wine made a large stain on the back of a man standing diagonally behind me.

The lady who splashed the wine gasped. I felt sorry for the manโ€™s expensive jacket, which was now ruined.

The people around us fell silent, watching with bated breath. The man slowly turned around.

โ€œI see. It seems that it rains wine at recent evening parties. I was careless.โ€

โ€œDuke-sama!โ€

โ€œItโ€™s Felix-sama.โ€

โ€œOh, how terrible.โ€

Duke Felix Von Howden, who is likely the guest of honor tonight, looked straight at me with a graceful smile.

โ€œIโ€™m glad you, the beautiful one, didnโ€™t have to suffer.โ€

Ugh. Heโ€™s still saying things that make my teeth float.

โ€œIโ€™m sorry that my dodging caused the wine to splash on Duke-sama. I apologize.โ€

โ€œItโ€™s okay. I have a change of clothes. That young lady over there, I think it would be best if you disappeared while my guards can still hold back.โ€

โ€œEek!โ€

The lady let out a strange shriek and disappeared without even apologizing. I couldnโ€™t remember her name until the end, but oh well.

โ€œThen Iโ€™ll be going nowโ€ฆโ€

โ€œWait, Ellen. I think you can keep me company.โ€

Saying that, the Duke turned his back. Ugh. I canโ€™t help it. Felix-sama and I are childhood friends.

โ€œPlease change your clothes first. I wonโ€™t run away. Iโ€™ll be waiting on the terrace.โ€

โ€œUnderstood. Iโ€™ll be right back.โ€

The terrace was cool. I was prepared, but I was relieved to escape from the curious eyes. Soon, Duke-sama arrived.

โ€œYou didnโ€™t run away.โ€

โ€œI told you, didnโ€™t I?

Felix-sama looks at me with an amused expression.

โ€œWhat is it?โ€

โ€œMost young ladies get nervous around me, but you always seem calm.โ€

โ€œWeโ€™ve known each other since we were children.โ€

โ€œThere are many young ladies who tremble and canโ€™t lift their faces, you know?โ€

โ€œWell, I canโ€™t imagine that.โ€

Felix-sama chuckles.

โ€œYour family is wealthy, youโ€™re beautiful, and youโ€™re smart, so maybe thatโ€™s why youโ€™re not nervous around me.โ€

โ€œBut my fiancรฉ was taken away.โ€

โ€œHeโ€™s a fool, isnโ€™t he? Do you know what heโ€™s doing now?โ€

โ€œStop it. I donโ€™t want to know, so donโ€™t say anything.โ€

โ€œHmm. So you still have feelings for him.โ€

โ€œโ€ฆThatโ€™s what I donโ€™t like about you, Felix-sama. You say things you donโ€™t need to say.โ€

Felix-sama gives a bitter smile.

โ€œMy mother says thatโ€™s my flaw.โ€

โ€œI agree with Felix-samaโ€™s mother. And itโ€™s not that I still have feelings for him. Iโ€™m just not healed yet.โ€

Felix-sama becomes serious and apologizes, โ€œI see. Iโ€™m sorry.โ€

โ€œYou havenโ€™t changed since we were kids.โ€

โ€œWhat part of me?โ€

โ€œYouโ€™re not good at handling situations. Youโ€™re beautiful, but you donโ€™t use it.โ€

โ€œEven if you praise me that much.โ€

โ€œIโ€™m criticizing you.โ€

โ€œOh.โ€

We both laughed. Then we fell silent. The orchestraโ€™s music was playing, and it was comfortable even in silence.

โ€œIf youโ€™re having trouble finding a husband, I could take you.โ€

โ€œIโ€™m supposed to find a son-in-law. I donโ€™t plan on getting married. And youโ€™ll have to deal with poisonous snakes, frogs, spiders, and plants.โ€

โ€œUgh, I hate all of those. I had nightmares all night after seeing that room when we were kids.โ€

โ€œMy mother scolded me severely for showing it to you, Felix-sama.โ€

We both give a bitter smile.

โ€œWell, cheer up. Not all men are like that.โ€

โ€œYes, thank you.โ€

โ€œIf you canโ€™t find anyone, I really willโ€ฆโ€

โ€œYes, yes, I know. Thank you.โ€

There arenโ€™t many people I can talk to so casually, so I want to stay friends. If we become lovers, the only outcome is a breakup because heโ€™s also an heir.

โ€œI donโ€™t want to lose any more friends than I already have, so I want to stay friends with Felix-sama.โ€

โ€œI hope you find someone good. Ellen, youโ€™re the type to touch poisonous snakes with your bare hands, but youโ€™re timid when it comes to people.โ€

โ€œโ€ฆโ€

โ€œIโ€™m sorry again. I was wrong. As an apology, can I invite you to dinner sometime soon?โ€

โ€œYes, Iโ€™ll accept that as an apology.โ€

After that, we continued to reminisce, and in the end, I couldnโ€™t talk to any other men except Felix-sama.

It was fun, but my first memorable evening party was a disaster. I hope the next one will be peaceful and full of new encounters.
