nsort’s good marital relationship.
It was a pretty famous story of how the crown prince and his consort were not in a marriage of convenience, but in fact, a marriage borne out of love.
The crown prince had cared and loved only his consort with all his heart until now as he turned 23 and she 18.
It was a completely different story to how his father was a notorious playboy who had more than ten wives.
“U-Um… Ducal Princess Alvinith…”
“Let’s stop playing chess and greet His and Her Highness, shall we?”
The count’s daughter beside Adeline glanced at her several times, but Adeline responded with a kind voice.
Rozenne Delacroix was already running towards the crown prince and his consort, and this was only a matter of course.
Because the consort was Rozenne’s older sister.
Adeline slowly walked along, feeling quite annoyed by the count’s daughter, who was trying to comfort her for a long time.
Twenty steps away, Rozenne finally arrived in front of her sister and burst out in joy as she stomped her feet.
Smiling in the most graceful manner, Adeline thought.
‘I’ll have to visit Veronis soon…’
Then she’d be able to see if the rumors regarding Duke and Duchess Valentino were true.
* * *
The fact that Theodore was suffering from a ‘temporary partial amnesia’ was kept secret.
The subsequent problem that arose, however, was that to outsiders, his changed attitude made it look like our relationship got better.
“Thank you so much for doing this for me, Darling.”
I turned away from his persistent gaze, still feeling distraught by him.
Some time ago, when he asked me to call him ‘Darling’, or his nickname ‘Theo’, he started calling me ‘Darling’, too.
Theodore hadn’t approached me since the time incident when I broke the cup and lost my senses for a moment.
At first, I wondered if he had finally given up.
However, that wasn’t the case.
He was just restraining himself.
After hovering around in uncertainty for a few days, he started sending letters, flowers and gifts to me time and again.
Then, it all suddenly exploded in my face yesterday with such a burden suddenly given to me.
His ‘request’ was that I go with him to the hunting party that the crown prince was holding.
I accepted it because I thought about the duchy’s external image, but he had gotten excited by this.
He possibly thought that I started opening up to him.
I wanted to kick him out of my room right this instant.
My hand shook as I held the teacup.
Seeing how the amnesiac Theodore Valentino was acting sweet and attentive to me was just.
If I keep holding it in like this, I’m certain that I might just reach my limit one of these days.
t/n: lemme tell you.
the sheer cringe I had when I typed Theo calling Lily ‘Darling’ was… far too much… but I swear it’s not as cringe as it is in Korean, it just somehow sounds weird in English, ugh.
The more accurate nickname Theo calls Lily is ‘Wife’/부인, and what he asks Lily to call him is ‘Yeobo’/여보 (I’m never really sure how to translate this, you can google it though).
Both are natural ways of how a married couple calls each other, so I opted for ‘Darling’ for both of them.
Honey, sweetheart or any other variation is just… more cringe…
