Duke Alexander eyed Alessandra suspiciously who just beamed innocently at him. But it did not fool him. Since the moment he met her, he had known the manipulative soul lay behind her innocent smile. “The duke and duchess of Terrence duchy were murdered,” Alexander said with a smile. “Since the young duchess is comparing the two incidents, I am even more curious as to what happened to the Maximillan duchess and her family.” “Humans are like that after all. They are curious,” Alessandra said, unmoving. “But I guess I was wrong about something. Since the duke can be curious, he must be a human, right? Please accept my apologies for misunderstanding. I was just misunderstanding the duke based on the unfortunate incident that transpired two years ago.” What? Did you think I will fall for your words so easily? I have more experience than you. Don’t underestimate the brain of an almost thirty six years old! He took a deep breath as if he was trying to control himself. Alessandra chuckle
“Ugh, it feels like I’m locked up,” Alessandra muttered as she bit her nails, sitting on the bed in her room at the Terrence duchy residence. The room was lavish and beautiful, just as her room in the Maximillan duchy residence. “Even though I am locked up like this, perhaps it won’t be too bad. After all, Alessandro has to do all my work today, haha. He won’t be able to rest at all.” “My lady, please quit laughing by yourself. It’s creepy,” Matt said. He had come to the young duchess’s room after washing up. “We’re locked up, my lady. Please do something.” “Why would I? I don’t have to work today,” she grinned. “And besides, I have a feeling that the food here will be good. The taste of the macarons is still on my tongue. It was too good.” “Well, the macarons were truly good,” he agreed as he leaned against the window frame and looked outside. “The storm hasn’t calmed down at all.” “It won’t,” she said. “At least, it will go on for a day.” “I can sense magic,” Matt said. “It’s
Duke Alexander was known for his sharp tongue. Surprisingly, he was being gentle with Alessandra. She suspected it was because he wanted to marry her. Even so, Alexander was pretty honest. “I see,” she nodded. “As the duke can see, my fiancé is pretty reluctant to annul our engagement. It is an obstacle for the duke and me to get married.” “If the young duchess wants, I can take care of the matter,” he said. “The duke can easily give permission, I understand. Even if the duke doesn’t care about his image, I do greatly and if Lord Hayden’s and my engagement is annulled this way, I will be labeled as a whore, which is not a pleasant thing to be called. Given the duke’s brother’s personality, which the duke is perfectly aware of, he will spread rumors about me cheating on him. Since I am a woman, due to peoples’ strange understanding, my image will go down even though Lord Hayden was the one who was cheating on his fiancé openly,” she said. “I guess I can think the duke understands
“Ah, Duke Alexander is also here,” Alessandra said as she glanced at the duke who was standing behind her. “The heir of the North Maximillan duchy greets you.” “It is indeed good to see you, Young Duchess,” Alexander said while glancing at Hayden, who was surprised to see them talking casually even though it was the first time the young duchess visited the Terrence duchy. “Is the young duchess here to spend time with her fiancé? If so, then I will gladly leave you two alone.” “No need, Duke Alexander,” she said. “It will be great if the duke is present as well, since it will need the duke’s permission.” “What is it, Alessandra?” Hayden asked. “I don’t think we need to talk about anything that requires the duke’s present.” “Lord Hayden, please button your shirt properly before talking,” Alessandra said. “Or do you need my guard to help you?” “My hand is working perfectly fine,” Hayden grumbled. “No need to help.” “Oh, is that so?” Alessandra muttered. “I thought your hand might b
"My lord, are you going to marry the young duchess for real?" Cornelius asked.Duke Alexander was sitting in his chair in his office as always, while the butler, Cornelius, was giving him updates."I wanted to marry her in the first place. I just placed the contract so she would annul her engagement to marry me. But who knew she was planning on annulling her engagement in the first place?" Alexander smirked. "She is the only one I can think of marrying. Unlike other noblewomen, the young duchess is a truly admirable person, I have to admit. Even I was forced to admire her.""I heard a lot about the young duchess though I have not seen her myself," Cornelius said. "She holds a great amount of power in the political world despite her age. It will help you.""Isn't that why I am marrying her?""But what I don't understand is, when did the lord see the young duchess before?""I haven't before," Alexander said. "I just heard about her. Even my spies respect her ability. She has a twin brot
