Ilvis, who made a subtle gesture of contemplation, looked at me with an expression of one that seemed to have come up with something interesting. Although a radiant smile adorned his divine face, for some reason, a shiver ran down my spine.

People call that an unpleasant premonition.

"Regarding me and Amalia..."

Ilvis, once again deliberately pausing his words, gently pulled me closer, wrapping his arm around my shoulder. After confirming that I didn't object, he positioned me slightly behind, shielding me from their gazes.

"We're just friends. There's absolutely nothing to worry about."

It felt like our relationship was a little closer than just friends.

"I see. Well, it felt slightly closer than what I would consider the distance between friends."

"That's surprising. I can't help but think that the current distance between you and Miss Olivia is hardly appropriate."

"She's doing it on her own accord."

Ilvis momentarily appeared dumbfounded by my fiancé's statement but quickly put on a forced smile.

"If you have a fiancée, shouldn't you reprimand her?"

"You can't do something like that to a woman...!"

That's impossible! My fiancée was astonished, as if to say that, and Ilvis sighed deeply while pressing his temple.

Then he spoke to me in a low voice, one that only I could hear.

"It seems like we can't communicate at all... Is he always like this?"

"...He used to be normal."

"So, recently, he's mostly like this, is that right? Why didn't you break off the engagement?"

"It would take a long time to explain. I'll tell you later."

"I see... In some cases, changing tactics might be unavoidable."

"I'm truly sorry for causing you trouble..."

To avoid arousing suspicion, I quickly concluded the conversation. As I peeked out from behind Ilvis, my sister, who had been treated dismissively, was bothering my fiancé.

Neither of them seemed to notice our conversation.

"I have an appointment with Amalia... I should take my leave now."


"Oh, there's nothing suspicious, so please don't worry."

I could almost hear the undertone saying, "I'm different from you". My fiancé, realizing he couldn't compete, redirected his attention towards me.

"Am... Amalia! Are you serious?!"

"I have permission from my mother. I'll be back soon."

"But... Your Grace!? You're being deceived by my sister! Wake up!"

I saw my sister staring at me with a face filled with hatred, envy, and jealousy, and my fiancé had a pitiful look on his face.

I couldn't understand the reason for the hurt expression on my fiancé's face, and I unintentionally glanced at him. Although it was just a brief two-second glance.

Perhaps he noticed the gaze that didn't even last a few seconds because the expression vanished from his face.

Panicking, I quickly turned my face forward before our eyes met. However, I could still feel his piercing gaze on my back, so I instinctively hugged my arm.

Ilvis looked at me curiously.

"What's the matter?... Did something happen between you and those two before I arrived?"

Although I flinched at his sharp question, I answered that it was nothing because I didn't want to worry him.

(He's a coward after all. Even if he did think of something malicious towards Ilvis, I don't think he would actually act on it.)

He seemed rather touchy lately, so it was probably just my mistake. Yes, that must be it.

Having regained my composure, I smiled again, reassuring Ilvis who was still looking at me with a hint of doubt.

"If there's nothing, that's the best, but if you feel any discomfort, please let me know immediately."

"I don't want to inconvenience you to that extent."

"If something were to happen to you, I wouldn't be able to bear it. Besides, a man like him, once he gets an idea in his head, he's capable of terrible things. It's best to be cautious."

Ilvis said that with a serious expression. My fiancé's face from earlier flashed through my mind, and I unintentionally straightened my back.

"Don't be so frightened. Just being cautious is enough."


"I'll also be careful, but if something happens, please contact me immediately. It doesn't matter how trivial it may be."

Suddenly, I noticed that the servants were watching our exchange with warm smiles.

At that moment, I remembered that this was the entrance hall. Before things became even more awkward, I decided to quickly lead Ilvis, who was taken aback, out of the mansion.

As we walked towards the carriage, I couldn't help but talk about various things, and I completely forgot about the issue of my fiancé.
