The Presumed Villainess Is Being Married Off to the Ugliest Man in the Country – Chapter 1

Chapter 1: Prologue

“Isn’t he the ugliest person in the country. . .? I’m talking about Margrave Rudy Santorina, right. . .?”

Upon hearing my words, my father nodded with a bitter expression.

The people present, seemingly sympathizing with me, all had sorrowful expressions. Some were even teary-eyed.

Unbelievable.

Inconceivable.

But it seems to be true.

“So, I’m going to marry Rudy-sama. . .That’s just. . .that’s just. . .”

Ah, my voice trembles.

I can’t control my expression.

Even restraining my impulsive body is a struggle――,

“Just a reward, isn’t it?!”

At my outburst of heartfelt exclamation, everyone present stiffened.

Oh, what should I do?

I must be wearing the happiest smile of my life right now.

I feel so happy that I want to jump for joy. Even do a cheer. . .No, that’s not appropriate.

In reality, I shouldn’t even let my smile show.

Because, right now, it’s the scene of my condemnation as the villainess.

From my ‘reward’ remark that clearly didn’t fit the situation, everyone in the room remains frozen.

. . .Was it really that funny. . .?

“Um, umm. Excuse me, I got carried away.”

Feeling awkward, I cleared my throat and tightened my expression as much as possible, then finally everyone’s time started moving again.

Perhaps they’re thinking it was some kind of mistake. . .? Everyone is tilting their heads with a perplexed expression.

My father, as if starting over, shook his head and opened his mouth with a solemn nod.

“Ah, no, it was a very sudden news. It’s natural to be confused. However, please rest assured. The engagement can still be broken if circumstances change. That’s why I’m currently trying to delay the actual marriage as much as possible. . .”

“No, it’s fine. I will marry Rudy-sama. As the other party has stated, as soon as I graduate from the academy in one month, if possible.”

As I tried to tighten my expression, unnecessarily making it sharp, I said so, and my father’s eyebrows drooped.

I feel like crying now, even though there’s no reason to cry.

“However, Margrave Santorina. . .Well. . .Certainly, in terms of personality, family background, and abilities, he is flawless as your husband. Flawless, but. . .Well, it’s not something I should say. . .But from my perspective, it’s just. . .just so. . .ugly. You don’t have to force yourself. . .”

“His appearance is not a problem for me.”

As I interrupted my father’s words and asserted, a tear fell from my father’s eyes.

No, it’s not because of endurance or dedication to the country, and certainly not because of reflection on causing trouble for the beloved child of the presumed heroine.

It’s just my true feelings. . .

After all, in this world, ‘ugly’ or ‘unattractive’ only means “pale complexion.”
