e’s eyes widened like two giant chestnuts.
She also quickly got up and asked about my condition.

“Madam, are you alright? Yesterday… You were really… You were really very hurt and scared… I was scared, too…”

Charlotte’s eyes were brimming with tears.
As my senses gradually sharpened from my sleep, I felt deeply ashamed about what happened yesterday.
At the same time, I felt more apologetic towards Charlotte.

With a bitter smile on my lips, I nodded and took Charlotte’s hand.

“I’m fine… I know what happened yesterday was a little surprising.”

“But how did you hurt your hand?”

“…I broke a cup.”

“What? But for the Madam to make such a mistake… You must have been feeling really tired these days.”

Charlotte made a fuss and said that it’s better for me to eat more healthily.

I went to the bathroom and took a bath, then changed into clean clothes.

As I was led by Charlotte back to the room, she spoke in a grim tone.

“Madam, you must have breakfast today.
Don’t just eat a few pieces of fruit!”


While she helped me into my dress, the other ladies-in-waiting seemed to have set the table.
I didn’t have any appetite again today, but I forced myself to have a few spoons of consommé.
Then, I picked up the fork and stirred through the salad.

Seeing this, Charlotte hesitantly spoke up.

“Um… Madam, the sleeping pills…”


Charlotte knew that I couldn’t sleep without taking them.

I knew that she felt upset whenever she saw me taking the pills every night, but she didn’t say anything regardless.
She knew how much I suffered from insomnia and migraines.

But yesterday, Theodore burned all the sleeping pills I had, so Charlotte seemed to be worried.

I chose my words for a moment before I spoke.

“It’s alright.
Since it’s like this, I’ll stop taking them.”

“……! R-Really?”


Instead of the pills, I thought it would be better to start using incense to help me sleep.
It’s not as effective as the pills, but at least it wasn’t poisonous.

Still, I’m already worried about the insomnia and migraines that I’d likely be suffering from tonight…

There would be no way to get more of the pills anyway.
Theodore already got rid of everything.

Come to think of it, I suddenly became curious.
Had his memories still not come back today?

“…I actually didn’t want you to continue taking those pills, Madam.
It’s not good for your health because it’s poisonous.”

Charlotte carefully spoke her mind.
I nodded, then picked up one slice of bread.

“You’re right.
That’s why starting tonight, I’ll try some incense to help me sleep.”


“It’s not poisonous.
It won’t affect my health.”

“I see! Then that’s a good idea, Madam!”

Charlotte grinned widely, and I could see the relief in her expression.
I gave her a smile and continued eating.

I finished eating after about twenty minutes, and I decided to go to the library.
So, I took off my sandals and chose another pair of shoes.
But at that moment, someone knocked on the door.

Charlotte and I exchanged glances, questions rising in both our eyes.
Then, Charlotte went closer to the door.

“Who is it? The Madam is in the middle of changing clothes.”

“My name is Jane Thorpe, and I am a newly hired doctor.
His Grace has appointed me as the Madam’s exclusive doctor.”


Puzzled at the person’s answer, I frowned.

My doctor?
