He didn’t intend to give much meaning to his first kiss like an immature girl.
Still, he had never imagined that the person with whom he shared his first kiss was the daughter of his family’s enemy.
As soon as he became depressed about it, he felt a slight pull on his sleeve.
There was only one person who could possibly reach his sleeve in this place.
“You could talk about it later.
First, focus on the ceremony….”
Frowning and turning his head, he stopped for a moment.
The woman next to him was smiling happily as if she had just got everything in the world.
A happy smile that he couldn’t see as acting.
The bride, whose cheeks were red, whispered while biting her small lips.
“There’s something I want to tell you right now.”
“I’m so happy.
There is no woman happier than me in the world right now.”
“I mean it.”
Glenn couldn’t think of how to answer her.
However, Nadia only smiled and lowered her veil as if she had not expected an answer from the beginning.
Covering her face, she crossed her arms around his to hang on to him.
Glenn had to clench his teeth and remind himself of her status to avoid being bothered by an unfamiliar feeling rising on his gut.
‘Even if she pretends to be so innocent, she is the daughter of Balazit.
She is just a puppet that moves as her father wishes.’
He should not be fooled by her smile that pretended to be pure.
Did the greedy old man really marry his daughter off just to fulfill her love?
This was the very moment when the confrontation between the North and the south was getting sharper.
There would be nothing more disgraceful than this kind of inferiority for such a person.
Glenn got a hold of himself that had been shaken for a moment and turned his head back ahead.

After the vague wedding ceremony, the reception continued immediately.
Most of the guests who attended the ceremony also attended the reception, which meant that the scale of the reception was not big.
Although it was small in scale, it followed all the traditions.
The tradition for guests to give gifts to newlyweds and bless their future was the same.
Most of them offered precious items, saying they wanted the Winterfell family to thrive more.
What was interesting was that none of the guests congratulated their marriage, even in mere empty words.
Nadia had no choice but to marvel at the sense of pride of the northerners.
Finally, Nadia, who received all the greetings from the guests, sighed, leaning on the chair.
‘Ah… I’m so tired to death.
My face muscles are stiff.’
It was fortunate that she could wear a veil during the ceremony, but she had no choice but to smile brightly at the reception and show her face.
It was not easy to pretend to be happy in a place filled with hostile people everywhere.
Nadia almost had a cramp on her facial muscles.
‘I was glad that the ceremony was held safely, but I guess it’s not.
There’s one more crisis left.’
It was the first night of the newlyweds.
It was a problem that had her stomach churned for the last few days.
Nadia couldn’t imagine if Glenn would want to sleep with her without feeling disgusted with her, the daughter of his enemy.
Would his lower-half-part and his brain have a different reaction? Her moment of the crisis soon came in no time.
It was around when the sky turned black and when the guests returned home one by one.
The old butler carefully came up to the altar and whispered in a small voice.
“Marquis, it’s late.
You should end the banquet and eat it in the newlywed room.”
Glenn, who had a sour look throughout the reception, raised her eyebrows.
The wine glass he was holding was placed on the armrest with a rough sound.
He asked back in a stunned tone.
“Gordon, did you just say newlywed room? Are you suggesting that I have to sleep together with her?”
“Yes, now that you had your wedding, as a wedded couple….”
“Do you want me to share a bed with a woman who might have come all the way here to kill me?”
“W-What do you mean I might kill you?”
It was not acting but something that Nadia yelped in a pure surprise.
‘Why would I destroy my own house? I made it all the way here to stand against my father.’
She had to live a long life to avenge her revenge on her family and ex-fiance.
Wasn’t they supposed to benefit each other so that he could also get rid of his political opponent?
However, it was just her abominable act for Glenn, who had no idea what Nadia was thinking.
He burst into laughter as if he was dumbfounded and continued.
“Then, Nadia Balazit, I am going to ask you one question.
Why did you want to marry me? To be your father’s spy? Or to forge a treason document? Are you going to accuse our family of treason?”
“Tell me truthfully.
There’s no one here to protect you.”
