You’re Breaking Off Your Engagement with Me? It Was Done Yesterday, Didn’t You Know?! – Chapter 10

Chapter 10│Read translated stories and daily updates at: Awebstories.com

A month has passed since the engagement with the Dukes of Jaeger broke off.

After all that has happened, I am relieved to be rid of Raymond-sama and the Dukes of Jaeger.

Today I am attending a party organized by the royal family.

My mother could not come due to an emergency, so my father escorted me.

I am wearing a bright yellow sack-back gown (robe à la française), a gift from the Queen.

The ribbon-filled piece adds to the glamor of the dress, and the vato pleats that run down to my feet give me a cape-like appearance and make me look graceful while standing.

The dress is luxurious but not too flashy and is a refined design, showing Her Majesty’s good taste.

Participants at the party are glancing over here.

The bilgola sleeves with a laid-down collar and large bulging sleeves were in fashion not so long ago, and most people are still wearing such dresses.

Only a few of them wear French-style dresses, so I seem to stand out.

My necklace has a big sapphire in the middle surrounded by diamonds, and the earrings have three diamonds as well.

Brilliant cutting is a recently invented cutting method. Most of the nobility wear square table-cut jewels, and only royalty wears diamonds that are cut in a way that makes them sparkle.

My accessories and the fan in the same color as the dress are also gifts from Her Majesty the Queen.

I refused to accept so many expensive things at once, but the queen said, [There’s someone I’d like you to see today, and I want you to wear this as a favor to me.]

Who does Her Majesty want me to meet?

My father left me to go greet his business associates.

I was looking for the waiter to get me a drink when suddenly someone pushed me from behind and I fell to my knees.

“Kya.”

I looked up and found myself surrounded by four ladies.

“Good day to you, Alicia.”

The one looking at me with devilish eyes was Lovisa Sachs-sama, former Duchess of Jaeger, now Countess of Sachs, and mother of Raymond.

“Duchess Jaeger… No, now Countess Sachs, perhaps.”

Lovisa-sama left the Duke of Jaeger and returned to her family home, the Countess of Sachs. So she can no longer be called Duchess Jaeger.

So I can call her Countess after she has returned, right? There is no other way to call her.

Next to Lovisa-sama were Viscountess Thomas, Viscountess Koch, and Baroness Weil.

All four of them caused me great pain during my engagement to Raymond-sama.

My father arranged my engagement to Raymond-sama at the request of Duke Jaeger.

Duke Jaeger’s purpose was to finance his business.

The fact that Raymond-sama was the son-in-law of the Filta family was a condition of the engagement proposed by his father.

This was explained to Lovisa-sama at the engagement meeting years ago, but Lovisa-sama did not seem to understand correctly.

In Lovisa-sama’s mind, I fell in love with Raymond-sama at first sight and begged my father to be Raymond-sama’s fiancé.

Raymond-sama was an only son, so there was no chance of him becoming the son-in-law in her mind, and she assumed that I, a low-ranking marquis, would be married into their household.

Both Lovisa-sama and Raymond-sama are the same in that they are so prejudiced that they do not understand the facts correctly. As expected, parents and children alike.

Each time I saw her, she would sarcastically say, “[With my son’s good looks, he would have been very popular if it had not been for his engagement to the daughter of a marquis. The dukes or even the royal family would have been a better match for Raymond, but your family had to beg my good-natured husband and force Raymond into an engagement. You have ruined Raymond’s future!]

Raymond-sama has a pretty face, but he is stupid, lazy, and has bad manners. How can such a person be engaged to a royal?

In the first place, I had not the slightest merit to be engaged to the debt-ridden Duke Jaeger’s stupid son, whose only merit was his face.

It was an engagement in which the Duke kneeled down and asked my father for an engagement.

Lovisa-sama and Raymond-sama, who did not understand it properly, and Duke Jaeger, who knew that his wife and son despised me and left it alone.

All three of them are assh*les.

The fact that I was engaged to Raymond-sama was a stain on my life.

The two years I was engaged to Raymond-sama were like throwing myself into the river. Even though Raymond-sama was the one who was unfaithful, I was treated like a damaged woman when I broke off the engagement.

My future was ruined, in my opinion.

    I’m willing to bet that her mother and the queen have been planning to set her up with the Prince that was studying abroad all along.
