“Did you want to see me, Ojo-sama?”
I ring the bell, and Sylas rushes over. I can’t help but smile when I see Sylas. Sylas narrows his eyes as he notices my expression.
“Ojo-sama looks happy. Did you come up with another idea?”
“Yes. I’m thinking about what I can do for you. I think you’ll enjoy it.
“I’m excited about it. Will you be taking me somewhere again?”
Sylas chuckles, as he has grown accustomed to being led around by me.
“Listen, Sylas, I’m going to look for a suitable bride for you. What is Sylas’s ideal woman? I can bring you whoever you want!”
Sylas’s eyes widened. After that, he shakes his head.
“A bride-to-be?” No, I’m not interested!”
“Don’t be afraid to ask. I can find any attractive lady or a lady from a well-established family. Sylas is both attractive and hardworking. I’m sure she’ll fall head over heels for you right away.
“I don’t think I need one.”
I confidently proposed the idea, but Sylas flatly rejected it.
“Why? You haven’t considered getting married yet?”
“No, I don’t particularly want to marry.”
Sylas said, his voice a little colder than usual. I was completely perplexed. Sylas’s getting a fiancée or a girlfriend would be the best way to put an end to the rumors.
Sylas softens his expression as he realizes my face has darkened and says,
“Thank you for taking the time to express your concern. But for the time being, I’d rather serve Ojo-sama than marry.”
“You don’t have to be concerned about me. Please prioritize your own happiness.”
“It brings me happiness to serve Ojo-sama.”
He stated it so emphatically that I couldn’t bring myself to recommend him any further that day.
But I wasn’t going to give up just because he refused once.
I tried many times after that to find the right moment to suggest a potential marriage partner to Sylas.
Since Sylas hasn’t told me who he’d like to marry, I look for a suitable lady, taking into account her age, family background, and reputation. My room is decorated with paintings of ladies that my maid secretly acquires for me.
Despite the fact that all of the girls are beautiful and well-known, Sylas is uninterested.
On the contrary, the mere mention of his marriage partner causes his face to cloud. Even when we’re out and about, he’s a little listless, which makes me sad.
I’m wondering if I was a little too assertive. As I reflected on this, one thought occurred to me.
Sylas is drawn away from me because I say something overly dramatic, such as “marriage partner.” I should set up a place where he can begin as a casual friend.
I decided to summon Sylas to my room.
