“Judging from what you've told me, your parents are typical nobles who choose honor over love.
I won't dismiss this idea so easily.
In that case, your sister, who is just a noble daughter, cannot oppose them, can she?”


“That's true, but…”


The situation was not that simple, and why were we discussing this on the assumption that my parents would agree?

This plan was based on the premise that my parents respected Ilvis.
I wanted to point out that there was no reason for my parents to respect him, but I felt the pressure from Ilvis to not delve too deeply into this.
I ended up biting my tongue, but he seemed to be able to handle it somehow.


“Well, in any case, I can only trust you.
But is that okay with you?”


“…What do you mean by 'okay'?”


It was infuriating how he just tilts his head like that.


“Do you have someone you like? Even if you haven't declared it publicly, there will be rumors, you know?”


“I see.
…That's just what I need to cover my tracks.”


The expression on Ilvis's face, which had been filled with wonder, suddenly changed.
He looked like a hunter considering how to capture his prey, and muttered something under his breath.


His eyes, which I saw for the first time, were ice blue and slightly narrowed.
A chill ran down my spine and I couldn't help but speak up, but he immediately put on a soft smile.


“I'm sorry, I couldn't hear you over the noise in the hall.
Could you repeat what you said?”


“You said that I'm already rumored to be a playboy, right?”


“Are you perhaps bothered by it?”


…Was it just my imagination?


“No way.
Well, if you're still bothered by it, please give me some advice on how to become close to a girlfriend.
I've never been close to a woman before.”


“You seem quite bothered by it.”


“More importantly, what do you think? It's not a bad deal, right?”


“More importantly than that…”


But it was indeed not a bad idea.


“You can escape from marriage.
I can become closer to her.
There's nothing to prevent you, the one who can inherit the earldom, from getting married.”

To be honest, it was almost too good to be true.
I couldn't see him clearly in the darkness, but I could tell that the man in front of me had a handsome appearance.
It was frustrating, but it was probably true that Ilvis was popular with women.


That was why it remained a mystery to me why he was going so far for a stranger like me.
Maybe he was trying to trick me, thinking that a woman who lost her fiancé to her younger sister was an easy target.


“As I said earlier, if you don't trust me, you don't have to agree.
Well, I think it's a strange hobby to deliberately cause yourself suffering.
I couldn't possibly do it myself.”


“By all means, I would appreciate your cooperation.”


In the first place, I don't have the option to refuse.
I'll think about this man after I break off my engagement.
There's no way I can become any more unhappy than this.


At my sudden change of attitude, Ilvis smiled heartily and said, “I'll see you tomorrow.”
