nced sideways at the people in the room.

They were all loyal servants of the Marquis Winterfell, but she herself didn’t know if they could keep the words from leaking out.

‘This cunning girl….’

None of the Winterfell family members acknowledged Nadia as the hostess of the house.

However, as long as she brought the royal family’s name, no one would dare to defy her.

Glenn, his nephew, wouldn’t involve himself in women’s dispute, but he wouldn’t allow rumours that the Winterfell family was taking the royal’s order as a joke.

Madam Grace was at a disadvantage the more they continued the talk here.

Judging the situation rationally, it was only right for her to step down from this argument.

However, she couldn’t show the ugly appearance of running away with her tail rolled up in front of lowly maids.

Madam Grace raised her chin and shouted angrily to maintain her pride.

“No matter how much His Majesty adores you, he wouldn’t interfere with each of his servants’ internal matter! Even if Glenn accepted this marriage, do you think Glenn will protect you?”

“If I show my sincerity as a wife, he will care about me someday.”

“Let’s wait and see.
Which one would come first; you to be kicked out or my nephew to accept you as his wife?”

Madam Grace stared bitterly at her and turned her back.

She seemed to be trying to maintain her pride, but the problem was that it wasn’t particularly threatening enough for Nadia to back off.

Bam!

Madam Grace left, slamming the door shut.

There was only awkward silence in the room after she left.

The maids didn’t know what to do, and they were looking at each other.
Nadia, who noticed the atmosphere was getting stiff, said softly.

“Keep doing what you’ve been doing.”

“Y-Yes!”

There could not have been a bride who was happy to hear that her husband would treat her coldly.

The more concerning thing was that it was something that could happen.

From their point of view, as a maid, no matter how unbeholden their soon-to-be Madam was, she was bound to be afraid.

She may be beaten for no reason just to vent anger.

The maids had to work hard to relieve the tense atmosphere while measuring Nadia’s dress.

“Please don’t pay attention to what Madam Grace said.”

“That’s right, that’s right.
You’re this pretty; how could someone… No, no! Which man could deny your beauty?”

“W-We’ll do our best to dress you up.
So that the Marquis will fall in love with you at a glance.”

The maids began to flatter desperately to please Nadia.
Without knowing at all what their Madam was thinking in her heart.

Nadia thought.

‘If what she said was true, I’ll welcome it with my arms opened anyway.’

Nadia didn’t mind spending the first night alone.
The problem was that she had to sleep with Glenn.

If the man asks to spend the night with her, then….
Then…..

‘….What should I do?’

The problem was that no matter how hard she tried, there was no way Nadia could avoid it.

Nadia recalled the problem she had been trying to ignore because Madam Grace was making a fuss about it.

Nadia’s expression was gloomy, like she had come across a problem that was difficult to solve.

The time remained until the wedding ceremony passed like an arrow.
When she realized it, there was only a few days away.

While the wedding preparations were going on, one question remained in Nadia’s head.

‘Do we have to share the first night together? Really?’

Whether directly or indirectly, Nadia had heard whether she could be acknowledged as Glenn’s wife more than 30 times.

No, it was either she could be accepted as the hostess of the Winterfell family or just skip their first night.
How Nadia wished she could choose just one of the two options.

Nadia was stuck in a ridiculous situation, but on the other hand, there were also fuss about how Nadia said that she fell in love with Marquis Winterfell at first sight.

It didn’t make any sense for Nadia to refuse to share the first night with Glenn if she said she was in love with him.

At this rate, she was in a situation where she had to sleep with a man who she hadn’t talked to on more than a few occasions.

Nadia had a fiance in her previous life, but she couldn’t even get the chance to hold a wedding due to one reason and another.
Therefore, of course, she had no experience with such a thing called the first night.

‘To be honest, it would be a lie if I’m not nervous…..’

As she had a frown on her face thinking of the possible embarrassing situation in the near future, Nadia clicked her tongue.

If it was inevitable, then she had no choice but to accept it as it was.
What was so wrong with being a virgin?

Fortunately, the fact that Marquis Winterfell had no interest in her became a blessing for her.

Nadia waited for the wedding as she took good care of her body as customary.

And so, the day of the wedding ceremony came—Nadia, wearing an adjusted inherited dress, boarded into the wedding carriage.

Since no brother or father was to walk her down the aisle, Nadia had to head to the wedding hall alone.

Soon the carriage carrying her began to move.

Nadia calmly waited to arrive at her destination with a flower bouquet on her lap.

As she opened the curtain and looked out of the window, she could see the scenery outside the castle was passing by quickly.

Glenn did mention that it was an outdoor wedding, but it seemed to be held outside the castle.

Nadia began to hear the sound of music little by little, meaning that she was gradually approaching the wedding ceremony venue.

After a while, the carriage stopped at a place where the river and fields were visible.

“We have arrived, Madam.”

Rattle.

The door of the wedding carriage opened, and a hand suddenly reached out to Nadia.
