hroom in it.”

Heinz approached the red door decorated with silk and guided Roseline.
The room was quite spacious, inclusive of a large bed.
The bathroom was beyond the gold-decorated partition.
It was more luxurious than her room in their Crimson Rose mansion.

“If you want to change clothes, the closet is over there.
I’ve arranged it urgently because I think you’ll need it while you’re here,” said Heinz.

“What?”

“Oh, don’t worry.
It’s dressing for women, of course.
I didn’t prepare it myself, but I ordered a maid to prepare it for you.”

Roseline only listened as Heinz continued his explanation with a gentle smile, the tension between them finally disappearing.

“I’m sure you’re not as comfortable as you were at home because I was in a hurry to prepare this room, but please understand for a while.
If you ask the maid, she will prepare what you need.”

Roseline was speechless.

“Of course, you can tell me now, Lady Crimson Rose.”

Heinz smiled again, but Roseline could not be moved purely by his kindness.

“Is this how the Duke handles interrogations?” she asked.

At her question, Heinz raised an eyebrow, “Hmm? What do you mean by interrogation?”

“I have been arrested as a person involved in the gambling case of my father Count Crimson Rose.”

Although she claimed to be innocent, Roseline was ordered to be captured together with her family.
Roseline thought she would have to stay in prison while she was under interrogation.

“Well…” Heinz’s features were slightly distorted with embarrassment.
But it was only for a moment that his expression faltered, and he soon smiled warmly and denied her assumptions.
“The Duke brought Lady Crimson Rose here so that you will not be taken to the Blue Knights.”

“What?” Roseline could not grasp her situation.

“This is neither a captive’s room nor an interrogation room.
It’s the Postenmeyer family’s capital villa.”

“What?” Roseline’s eyes grew bigger as her voice grew smaller.
Didn’t she get caught because she was an alleged sinner? Was Heinz saying that Duke Postenmeyer is hiding the accused? “Then should I not be here? Her Majesty…”

There was an order to arrest the Crimson Rose family.
No matter how great the Duke’s authority was, defying the order of the Empress may seem like a challenge to the authority of the Emperor.
