Chapter 15/27│Read translated stories and daily updates at: Awebstories.com
The next day, I made the decision to start working on marrying Sylas.
First and foremost, I need to discuss it with my father. He probably won’t allow it, but since he’s already given up on me, he might tell me to do whatever I want. I won’t know unless I speak with him.
Otherwise, I’ll have to prepare to become a commoner.
I wonder if I will be able to do that since I grew up as the daughter of a duke without any laborious hardship. I’m a little nervous, but I’ve spent my entire life in a prison-like environment. Whatever my life entails, I believe I am capable of doing it.
Which city will I call home?
What kind of house will I live in?
Will I be able to find employment?
Since I won’t be a nobleman anymore, I’ll have to learn to cook and clean.
It makes me happy just thinking about it.
There was a knock at my door just as I was smiling at the prospect of my new life. I answer it, and Sylas enters.
“Ara, Sylas! Hey, what kind of city do you want to live in? I was considering Riffel City in the…”
“I’m sorry about yesterday, Ojo-sama!”
Sylas bowed his head before I could finish. With blinking eyes, I looked at him.
“…what’s the matter?”
“Yesterday, I lost my cool. I took advantage of Ojo-sama’s generosity in finding me a marriage partner and demanded that she marry me! Please forgive me!”
With his head bowed, Sylas says. For a brief moment, I didn’t understand what he was saying, and when I did, I was furious.
“What exactly do you mean?! You said it yesterday, and now you want to retract it?!”
“N-No. It’s not that I’m taking it back… In the first place, there was no chance of marrying Ojo-sama. I was so happy to hear from Ojo-sama yesterday that I took advantage of it and even hugged her…”
Sylas raises his head, trembling.
“You mean you want to take it back? That’s awful. I was overjoyed!”
Sylas’ face flushes slightly as I say this. Then he shakes his head, takes a deep breath, and says.
“I’m not the right person for Ojo-sama. You deserve better.”
“What exactly is better?! Didn’t I tell you yesterday? I’d like to make you happy! I want to make whatever you want come true!”
“Don’t make a mistake with my wishes in your life, Ojo-sama!”
“I’m not making a mistake!”
The only mistake in my life is my last life. I was stupid enough to send an assassin to Camilia and was imprisoned as a result.
On the other hand, what’s the harm in cohabiting with Sylas?
“…even Sylas is calling it quits on the engagement…”
I was clearly shaken when I asked him so sadly.
Sylas thinks I was very hurt when Prince Jared broke off the engagement. When asked if he would do the same in a roundabout way, he was at a loss for words.
“I’d be happy to. I believe I would be happy with Sylas. Am I Wrong?”
Sylas looks at me as if he’s about to say something.
Then there was another knock on the door.
I invite her in, wondering who it is, and a maid-of-honor walks in. Then she opened her mouth as if she couldn’t think of anything to say.
“The master wishes to see you, Ojo-sama…”
“What about my father? What on earth does he want?
“That…, actually, Saint Camilia-sama was on her way to the temple and was the victim of an assassination attempt…”
Sylas rolled her eyes in surprise as I stared blankly at the maid-of-honor.
Of course, I did not request Camilia’s assassination in this life. But what in the world is going on?
