“Be quiet. I don’t remember allowing you to speak.”
Rebuked by Her Majesty the Queen, Lovisa-sama kept her mouth shut.
“There are several problems with what you just said. First, you just called Alicia “just” a Marquise, but you yourself are no longer the Duchess of Jaeger, you are a countess rank under Alicia, so watch what you say.
Second, the dress and jewelry Alicia is wearing were gifts from me.”
The four, including Lovisa-sama, became increasingly pale when they realized that the dress I was wearing was a gift from Her Majesty the Queen.
They were trying to tear the dress and take the jewelry from me, a gift from Her Majesty the Queen.
“Third, you called me, the Queen, a liar. This is an act of disrespect.”
Her Majesty looks at the four with cold eyes.
Their teeth are chattering, as if they’re not biting together from the trembling.
“W-With all due respect, it was Lovisa-sama who called Her Majesty a liar! We did not say anything!”
“Yes, we had nothing to do with it!”
“You people! You betray me!”
Lovisa-sama and the others have started a rift.
“Shut up. I don’t remember allowing you to speak.”
The four of them fell silent at the sound of Her Majesty’s dignified voice.
“The four of you are guilty of disrespect. [Her Majesty is incompetent for believing!], [Her Majesty is a wretch for only believing Alicia’s words!], [Her Majesty the Queen is blind to trust a woman like her!], [I can’t forgive Her Majesty for taking your side!], —Do these words sound familiar?!”
These are the words that the lady has just reported to Her Majesty the Queen.
Lovisa-sama and her cronies are white-faced.
You have to be careful what you say to royalty. You’re sure to be accused of disrespect if you speak like that at a royal party.
“As I said, I have gathered evidence with the help of shadows, and I have no doubt that Raymond was unfaithful.”
Does Countess Sachs know where Raymond was when I visited the Dukes of Jaeger in discussion of breaking the engagement? Raymond was in the middle of a pleasurable evening at the inn with the Baroness, with whom he was having an affair!”
Viscountess Thoma, Viscountess Koch, and Baroness Weil saw Lovisa-sama’s face. Apparently, the three cronies did not know about this.
“And yet, Countess Sachs is trying to say that Alicia fabricated the evidence of his infidelity and that I, a “fool”, believed Alicia’s words and brought down the Dukes of Jaeger!”
Her Majesty’s expression was soft and her tone was gentle, but her words were intimidating and chilling to behold.
Lovisa-sama could only shake with fear.
If only she had accepted the reality earlier, she would not have had to go through this.
“Viscountess Thoma, Viscountess Koch, and Baroness Weil thought Countess Sachs was right, so they attacked Alicia and used words to humiliate me. Is that it?!”
Viscountess Thoma, Viscountess Koch, and Baroness Weil were like fish on land, their bodies trembling and their mouths gaping open.
“I wonder what the punishment will be for these four!”
