“Did you want to see me, Ojo-sama?”
“Thank you for coming, Sylas. I’ve been considering it. I’ve gone a little too far in my search for your fiancée.
“No, I appreciate Ojo-sama’s concern. It’s just that I’m not thinking about getting married.”
Sylas smiled as he heard my words. I smiled and went on.
“Right. You would not want to get married right away. So let’s do this! I’ll prepare you for the possibility of meeting someone who isn’t a marriage partner or a grandiose one. Tell me who’s your ideal woman and I’ll find someone for Sylas!”
When I made this suggestion, Sylas’s happy face twisted into a sad one. This unexpected reaction surprised me.
Sylas says, a forced smile on his face.
“Ojo-sama can’t find my ideal woman.”
“W-Why? I’m a duchess, I can find—”
Sylas grabs my arm and looks at me with a mixture of sadness and irritation in his eyes as I’m about to say something.
I couldn’t help but flinch, because Sylas had always given me a gentle look. Even though he said it was fine, I may have been too insistent.
“U-Um, Sylas, I apologize—I didn’t mean to be pushy.
“…If anyone is OK, will Ojo-sama marry me?”
Sylas looked me in the eye and said in a testy tone. I was almost out of breath.
“Everyone except Ojo-sama is the same. It has no significance. Please stop saying such cruel things…”
Sylas exhaled sharply.
I was so taken aback that I couldn’t respond, so after a brief silence, I finally opened my mouth.
“—do you mean you’d like to marry the Duchess? Is Sylas interested in becoming the Duke’s son-in-law?”
“That’s not the case!!! It makes no difference how beautiful she is or how good her family is if it is not Ojo-sama.”
Sylas responds immediately.
“Right. I apologize. I understand.”
I know it’s not a lie because Sylas sacrificed not only his position but also his life for me in my previous life. Those words could not have been calculated.
“Do you know that…”
I’m pretty sure Sylas likes me. He would not have put his life in danger for me if he had not.
But I assumed, because he’d been with me since I was young, that I was about to be executed, and that he’d taken my place out of brotherly compassion.
When Enora and the other daughters asked if I liked Sylas, I flatly denied it from the bottom of my heart.
Sylas had always respected and cared for me as if it were second nature, so it never occurred to me that there was more to it than “Ojo-sama.”
Sylas returned to himself after seeing my struggle with words and said.
“I apologize, Ojo-sama. I’m a butler, and I’ve embarrassed you…!! I’m going to take a breather.
“W-Wait!! Is Sylas interested in me?
Sylas is about to turn around and walk away when I grab his arm and pull him back.
He’s trembling, and his eyes are swimming.
Then he says, as he musters his courage,
“I’ve been in love with you since I was a child.”
I could feel my face warming up.
I couldn’t believe it, but I was gradually overcome with joy.
I’m not sure why. I was happy.
much happier than when I was the prince’s fiancée and he spoke sweet words to me on the spur of the moment.
“I realize it’s a selfish feeling. I don’t want Ojo-sama to take any action. I just don’t want her to tell me she’s looking for a wife for me.”
“You don’t want to become the Duke’s son-in-law, do you? When I lose my status, I’m just a regular person with a touch of beauty and elegance. Is that all right? I don’t have the ability to live, so I believe I’ll have to rely on Sylas at first, but I’ll try to adjust.”
“O-Ojo-sama? What’s that supposed to mean?”
“Marry me! I’m going to consult with my father! There’s a chance he’ll say no, but then I’ll be a commoner! Then there won’t be a problem, will there?”
Sylas’ eyes widened as I smiled and said this.
“N-No way! What exactly do you mean?! I don’t think Ojo-sama will marry me!”
“Because I want to grant all of Sylas’ wishes!”
“That’s not what I meant at all! Even if Ojo-sama can’t marry that idiot prince, Ojo-sama can still have many good matches. It can’t possibly be me!”
Sylas is so shaken that he says the most obnoxious things.
“Well, it doesn’t really matter.”
In the original world, I was imprisoned for attempted assassination. There is no such thing as a successful marriage.
Besides, I’ve never thought about it before, but the more I think about it, the more I feel it’s ideal to marry Sylas.
I can be with someone who would risk his life to save me, and I’m not sure why Sylas chooses me over all those lovely ladies.
Most importantly, I’d have a great time with Sylas. The most enjoyable weeks of my life since regressing.
“I want to make you happy. And I feel like I can be happy with you. Is that wrong?”
Sylas looks at me hesitantly, then clutches me tightly.
“It’s as if I’m dreaming. Ojo-sama.”
I was overjoyed when he said this in a tearful tone.
