As I was reminiscing about yesterday's events, the door to my room was forcefully flung open.

"Amalia! What did you mean by that yesterday? Give me a satisfactory explanation!" My mother yelled, storming in, with her face contorted with anger.

My mother was more concerned with appearances than anything else, even when inside the house, she acted like a noblewoman. In fact, when she heard about the antics of my sister and her fiancé, she didn't even change her expression and told me, "If you're going to get married, just pretend you didn't see anything."

That's why it was surprising to see my mother appear so easily distraught. Although it was a little frustrating, it was a bit of a relief.

"Good morning, Mother. And what might you be referring to as 'that' from yesterday?" I asked, with a puzzled expression, ignoring the sharp pain in my head. I pretended to press my temples to hide the smile that was about to creep up at my mother's irked expression.

"You're not going to try and talk your way out of this! You haven't forgotten that you made a scene at the party yesterday, have you?"

"A scene? I only remember having a few drinks," I replied truthfully, despite having had several drinks. In reality, I had fallen asleep in the carriage on the way back, so I had no idea what Ilvis had said to my family.

I didn't think I would deviate too much from the "plan", but it would be bad if any details slipped out.

"A few drinks? Don't be ridiculous! You were acting so shamefully..."

"I'm sorry, but I really don't remember," I apologized.

"If you don't remember, I'll tell you! Despite being engaged to William, you went to the party alone!"

What was so fun about going to a party with a fiancé who slept with your sister?

Besides, part of the reason I went to the party yesterday was to escape reality. I could drink in a corner without drawing attention to myself because I was alone, but if I brought my fiancé, he would be a prime target. Although rumors hadn't spread yet, the social scene was sensitive to scandals.

"Drinking so much wine and passing out like that, really, how shameless can you be? And on top of that, you bothered the Duke!"

"Excuse me, what did you say?"

Did I mishear her due to my headache? It felt like my mother just said something outrageous.

"You have a fiancé! It's unthinkable for you to seduce the Duke! Oh, William has finally said that he'll marry you, but you're doing this at a time like this… There is no way that the duke, who is famous for his misogyny, would take you as a partner!"

My mother's hysteria did not stop.

I wanted to say many things, such as "Is it okay for the younger sister to sleep with her older sister's fiancé?" or "Why do you assume that I seduced him?", but I couldn't organize my thoughts.

(Seduced... the Duke? That Duke?)

There were four Dukes in this country, but with the exception of one, they were all middle-aged men or women who had families. Moreover, didn't my mother say "famous misogynist?"

(The misogynistic Duke who is still unmarried... there's no doubt about it.)

Even I, who was blinded by my engagement, knew who that famous person was.

But why would such a person come up in this situation? I had no memory of interacting with him while conscious, so if there was a possibility, it must have been after I fell asleep.

But I fell asleep in the carriage.

Although the Duke could stop another carriage, I didn't think he would do such a thing just to bring me home since we didn't have any acquaintances. However, there was even less possibility of my mother lying.

...Not acquainted with each other?

Come to think of it, the Duke's name was __________.

"If William doesn't marry you, this house would be gone!"

I was shaken so vigorously that I was overwhelmed by nausea. My thoughts were interrupted, and I pushed my mother's hand away, waiting for my headache to subside.

I was about to remember something, but I was disturbed.

"Amalia! What are you doing? What kind of attitude is that?"

"Madam! The Duke has arrived!"
