“Is that so?”

It takes him two days to recover from an injury that would normally require him to rest in bed for a month.
I must say his regenerative powers are out of this world.
I’ve always wanted to research it, but it isn’t my business, so I can not ask him.”

This was his way of telling Roseline that he wanted to ask her.
She thought about it for a moment but pretended not to hear him.

“I wondered if there was someone else with that kind of physical feature, but I didn’t know you had it.
Is that why His Excellency asked you to come here?”

“…you know why he brought me here?” Roseline asked.

Heinz nudged Damien’s side before he could reply to her question.


“My apologies.
Lady Crimson Rose.
We can’t babble about what His Excellency has said.”

“But he hasn’t returned since the interrogation that day.
It was nerve-wracking spending the last few days trapped in this room.”

Actually, it was only frustrating, but Roseline decided to make a big fuss about it.
As expected, Heinz’s expression was slightly disturbed by the word ‘nerve-wracking’.
The look in his eyes, Damien, who couldn’t hide his expression, darkened.

“Actually, the day you arrived at the villa Her Highness’s person came.”

It was good not to reveal that it was Count Wiegelhofen.
Heinz mulled it over and quickly drew the line to how far he could speak with arbitrary judgment.

“Is he the one who came to catch me?” inquired Roseline.

“Please don’t worry.
His Excellency sent him back.”

“Then you’ll be in an awkward position.
There is no justification.”

Even if it was a charge, the Empress had a reason to catch Roseline.
 But the Grand Duke had no justification to oppose it.

“So, he visited the Emperor.”

“What? How come?”

“…must have been to save you, Lady Crimson Rose.”

At that time, Melchor was having a private consultation with the Emperor alone.


“Yes, Your Highness.”

“I don’t remember hearing the news that you have a fiance.”

Right, because it’s my first time talking about it.

Melchor spoke nonchalantly.

“My apologies, Your Highness.
In the meantime, there was a reason to have to keep my marriage a secret.”
