(Despite seeing the Duke up close for the first time, why do I have a strange sense of déjà vu…?)


Wanting to clarify my unease, I looked back at the Duke.


“I came today because I have something I want to talk to Miss Amalia about.
I won't hurt her, so please allow me a moment alone with her.”


My always calm mother had been completely enchanted by the Duke's face and had permitted without hesitation.
Then, pushing me, who was slow to react, into the reception room, she hastily went elsewhere.


By the time I regained my senses, the Duke had already relaxed with a suspicious smile on his face.


“You are looking at me so passionately,” he said.
“I feel like I'm going to melt.”


“Oh, no, that's not it.”


“Hehe, have you fallen for me?”


“I admit that you have a good appearance, Your Grace, but…

With those words, the Duke froze.
After a long silence, he smiled very nicely at me, who was puzzled if he had said something rude.


“I'm going to make use of what happened today.”




“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.”


“That, that can't be.”


“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.”


“Hold on, are you lying…?”


“I'll see you tomorrow.”


It was a promise made between me and Ilvis.
The Duke, who repeated it word for word, made me feel like he was quite similar to him…


“May I ask for your name, Your Grace…?”


I didn't expect that a lady from the earl's family wouldn't know the name and face of a nobleman, especially a Duke.”


“I'm very sorry…”


“I am Ilvis.
Ilvis Lambert, Amalia Rosebery-san.”


He called out my full name as if to chastise me for not remembering him.
Rather than being surprised or happy, I felt uncomfortable with the majesty emanating from Ilvis' radiant smile.
