It was true that the dowry was the property of the wife.
But the moment she got married, she would become unified economically with her husband.
The husband's hardship was the wife's hardship.
Most wives would readily offer their dowry when their family had difficulties.
If the Winterfell family ever got hit with an economic crisis and she kept her money for herself, it would show that Nadia's love confession was fake and that she didn't consider Glenn as a family member.
Glenn's argument sounded quite plausible.
The attitude of their enemy's quiet daughter, whom he just met a while ago, and the words of his lord.
It would be given that his faith inclined toward the latter.
Glenn gave his troubled knight order.
“If you got your answer, hurry back to your place.
As far as I remember, you are escorting Nadia Balazit.”
“Oh, that's right.
“There is a risk of a sudden attack as the main road will end soon.
If she gets hurt or dies on our way, it's like giving the Duke reason.
Focus on your mission so that she doesn't get hurt.”
Fabian pulled the reins and turned his horse's head.
When he returned to his original assigned place, he could see the Marquis's soon-to-be wife through the open window.
It was impossible to ignore her gaze because the carriage was next to him.
Sure enough, Nadia, who made eye contact, greeted him with a bright smile.
“I opened the window to talk with you.
I was surprised that you weren't there.”
“Ah… That's… I had to do something else for a moment.”
“I heard you are in charge of being my escort temporarily.
Would you mind introducing yourself? Of course, you might already know my name.”
Nadia's way of talking without hesitation looked naive enough to make him forget her last name.
Fabian tried to answer brightly as usual, but when he recalled his lord's warning, he made a stern face.
You have a nice name.”
Nadia replied with a puzzled look.
She could feel that Fabian was drawing a line.
On top of that, alertness emanated from his whole body.
No matter from which angle she looked at it, he didn't want to get closer to her.
'A-Aren't you making it too obvious?'
Whether she was the daughter of Duke Balazit or Marquis Winterfell's wife, she held a higher status than a knight.
Hence, it shouldn't be strange to admonish him for his rude attitude.
She smiled awkwardly at the article with an oops face.
“I get it.
My father and Winterfell family are known for their bad blood after all.”
“N-No, that's not what ….”
If she put herself in Fabian's position, it would be difficult to trust the daughter of a man suspected of harming her predecessor lord.
“But you'll find out soon.
That I'm an ally of the Winterfell family.”
“Oh, that just now…
I am covering for someone else…”
Nadia's sad look ignited Fabian's guilt to the fullest.
In front of her sad smile, Fabian had no choice but to feel nervous in his saddle.
Perhaps this Winterfell's youngest knight had a lower hurdle than her husband.
Nadia noticed that Fabian got nervous from her acting.
Pretending to laugh forcibly, Nadia nodded at Fabian with her mouth smiling sadly.
“I look forward to your kind cooperation.”
