e could live without any difficulty. 

Yes, if it could only be two of them together…

But that couldn’t happen.
Regina had to go to Hertrio, and eventually back to Troxia.

Calix climbed onto the bed and gently raised Regina’s head and pulled out the pillow from underneath her.
He then quickly put his arm in the spot the pillow formerly occupied.
Following that, he wrapped his other arm around Regina’s shoulder and hugged her closely.
He wanted to feel her breath closer to him.

Regina, who was slightly disturbed in her sleep, frowned and made a murmuring sound, but Calix was even pleased with that.
How many times has he dreamed that he could only hug a cold body, one that couldn’t give him an answer when he was begging her not to be dead? If he could, he wanted to take in all her breaths.


The person in question had a comforting warmth, proving that she was alive.
It was also clear that her chest went up and down regularly with each breath.

Nevertheless, Calix, unable to resist the rising anxiety, tightened his hold on Regina, embracing her.

He didn’t want her to be taken away by anyone.
Not again.
Even if it was Regina herself who was taking her away from him. 

With his lips buried in Regina’s hair, Calix quietly opened his mouth.

“If you want to forget everything and pretend you don’t know, I’ll gladly follow your lead.”


“Well, it’s great in its own way.
When else would I be able to marry you, right? When we were younger, I had proposed to you but you rejected me.
I was serious back then… haha.”

Regina did not give him a reply.
Knowing that she was asleep, Calix glanced down at her face for no particular reason.

He was scared for a moment at the sight of her eyes closed quietly, and he could not find any peace until he heard the sounds of her breathing regularly.

“When I get back, I’ll start preparing your room first.”

It was easy to imagine Regina there, living with him in his estate.
He’s pictured that scene countless times over the past 5 years, after all.

But the difference is that this time, instead of it being his imagination, she would be there next to him, alive and well, and knowing that filled Calix with a sense of fulfillment. 

With deep satisfaction Calix closed his eyes, hugging her as she was.


Calix Axel Hertrio first met Regina Rohelo Troxia in the year he turned 12.

A letter came in a few days after his parents’ funeral.
The sender was someone he knew.

The Count of Troxia.
He had come to Calix’s parents’ funeral and greeted him.

When the previous Duke and his wife asked their son to visit the county of Troxia sometime in the near future, Calix quickly set off on a journey without much consideration.

It wasn’t because he was curious about what his parents had asked him to do; It was just because he didn’t want to think and worry about anything in the face of an unfamiliar concept of death.

At the end of his journey, he met a girl who seemed disinterested in all that was going on in the world.
Her bored eyes held nothing in them as she stared off into the distance.

‘Regina, this is Lord Hertrio.’ 

Regina’s head turned around at the words of Count Troxia.

She blinked, and at that moment, Regina’s eyes reflected Calix.
Her dull eyes sparkled with life.
It was as though she had known about him all this time.

And she opened her mouth.

‘You’re Calix Axel Hertrio.
Life has become very tiring for both you and me.’

For Calix, there had never been a more intense first meeting.
There wouldn’t be anything like that in the future.

Regina Rohelo Troxia.

That name was immediately imprinted into Calix’s head.


As soon as I woke up the next day, I realized something was wrong.

I was in someone’s arms.
A firm arm was wrapped around me.

I must have gone to bed alone last night.

When I slowly looked up, my eyes met with blue eyes looking down at me.
Calix’s eyes narrowed gently.

He had a low voice in the morning.

“Did you sleep well, honey?”

At that pet name, yesterday’s events quickly flashed through my mind.
I finished remembering and analyzing the situation in 0.1 seconds.
His absurd lie, claiming that we were married.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that what Calix is doing made sense to me.

‘Has he really gone crazy?’

Is he determined to continue this ridiculous play?

Regardless of this absurd situation, I had no intention of losing, so I looked up at him and smiled.

“I slept well.
Honey, did you sleep well?”


Unlike his nonchalant countenance, I could see that Calix’s ears were red.
I got out of bed, internally celebrating with a snort of victory.

Calix then rose from the bed and opened his mouth.

“As soon as we eat breakfast, we’ll leave.
I’ve already informed the knights.”

“Before that, I want to go home and get my belongings.”

“You don’t have to.
I’ve already sent my knights to get your belongings.”

“You brought it here?”

I looked back at him in amazement.
Calix was pointing to my belongings, currently placed on the bedside table.

I immediately recognized my belongings in the large bag.
Small valuables and personal items, books, and so forth.

Fortunately, there was no hair dye in that bag.
Thankfully, I used up all of the hair dye I had bought a week ago and threw it away into the trash.

“…You didn’t bring my clothes?”

“When we arrive at the estate, you will be bought new clothes.” 

“What will I wear on the way?”

“You can buy clothes on the way.
I’ve already prepared a simple outfit.”

What the hell did he do while I was sleeping last night?

I nodded, tongue in cheek at his immense power, which I had realized the scale of again just now.

“Wash up and come out.
I’ll be waiting on the first floor.”


Calix, who had finished speaking, left the room.
When I entered the bathroom attached to the room, I saw neatly folded clothes.
There, I caught a glimpse of Calix’s sword-like personality.

“You must really mean it.”

Somehow I felt like I had crossed a river that didn’t have a way for me to return back.
