The next day, I tried to see Leonie, but I couldn't find him.

He still contacted me saying he was not feeling well.

Even if it wasn't so, Leonie was afraid that bad luck was coming to me.

What's really going on?

What conversation did you have with Adrian that night?

Her anxious, depressed expression lingered in my mind the whole time.

I can't.
I'll have to visit

“Eclat, is there any neat and modest dress?”

“A modest dress?”

“Yeah, I’m going to visit the hospital, but I think this looks too flashy.”

It's like the culture of the country of courtesy in the East.

“A dress like the one you wore to the ballroom last time?”

Haha, I don't think it's necessary to be so dull.

“Yeah well, I think it's fine if it's not flashy.”

What Eclat brought was a navy blue dress in a calm tone.
He was about to go to visit her after changing her clothes.

“Eclair, Leonie is not feeling well.
Wouldn’t it be better to buy some medicine or some fruit?”

“Oh, it must have been the Lady of Almaz who was visiting.
Are you very sick?”

“I do not know.
I want to go and give you some medicine.”

Then, as if thinking of something, Eclat clashed their hands.

“Lady, there’s a new bakery called Vice, and they say it’s delicious.”


“Yes, how about buying some medicine and something sweet for Lady Almaz?”

“Good idea.
thank you.”

It was when I was going downstairs thinking that Eclat is trustworthy.

Oliver's brother's voice came through the stairs.

“The Grand Duke must be busy without blinking his eyes.”

“That’s right, there’s only one week left.”

“The first event organized after coming to Müten is St.
Obenley’s Day.”

I walked slowly and heard a voice follow.

“You're such a tight-fisted person, so you'll do well.
Rather, when are you planning to return to Ostrin?”

“Well, I'm not sure yet.”

“Will it be until St.
Aubenly's Day?”

“I'm not sure about that either.”

“Let me know when anything is decided.”

The voice of my older brother, who was talking to someone, suddenly stopped at the sound of my footsteps.

“Hello, little girl.”

Standing side by side with my brother was none other than Adrian.

He had a relaxed and friendly smile, just like the first time I saw him.


Facing him immediately reminded me of Leonie.

Shall I ask what happened at the prom?

I saw you with Lady Almaz.
Did something happen?

But on reflection, I'm not even Leonie's mother.

I think it's funny to ask what they were talking about after seeing grown-up young men and women hanging out at the ballroom.

Some people seem a bit sinister.

“What are you thinking?”


The atmosphere was fine until I witnessed it.

Then, after talking with Gerlac for a while about the dress scandal, he just turned around and said he had to go see Leonie.

It was Adrian's cheerful voice that broke the thoughts that were spreading endlessly.

“Oh, now that I see it, I remembered it.”

He suddenly punched me in the palm of my hand and-

“Live, you said you were amazing at the ball yesterday?”


I made a bewildered expression at the sudden words.

But no matter how much I thought about it, nothing special happened yesterday.

“The friend I went with yesterday came back early because he wasn’t feeling well.
She didn't do anything special.”

As I said that, Paley's blunt face flashed through my mind, but it soon disappeared.

'I had a bit of a fight with Paley, but fights like that are common.
In addition, the Grand Duke came at the right time and it was finished.'

“What kind of dress did you wear to become such a hot topic?”

oh my god

“Has it become a hot topic?”

“Yeah, I heard you're wearing very funny clothes.”

“What? Did our Love do that?”

My brother looked back at me with surprised eyes.

“Ribe, are you serious?”

“… … .”

“He insisted on going with Leonie unconditionally.
Was that really the reason you said you wanted to ride the Almaz family's carriage? To wear a funny dress to avoid her mother’s eyes?”

“It can’t be.”

Then he opened his eyes wide and looked straight at Adrian.

If you're smart enough, you'll be able to hear my heart telling me to stop and shut up!

“It's a joke.
Word went around that she was beautiful no matter what she wore.”

“… … .”

Could Libe be wearing a strange dress on purpose? Uh, of course you look a bit dull today.”

My brother tilted his head and looked back at me.

“Live, have your tastes changed a bit?”

No, why are you all so interested in me!

“Yes, what… … .”

“Live, by the way, is Adrian right?”

“Sure, of course.”

Phew, I'm not blind at all.

That mouth is a bit of a problem though.

“Ah, Oliver.
Could you bring me the book we talked about before? Because I need it.”

“Okay, I’ll be back soon.”

While his brother was away for a while, Adrian spoke again to see if the question was still unanswered.

“By the way, lady, can I really ask why you are wearing a color dress that no one else wears?”

“I don’t like it.”

“… … .”

I replied with a grin and stepped back.

He must have annoyed Leonie by joking around like that!

“I’m sorry if I hurt you.
But hearing what people are saying makes me really curious.
She is the Libe I know is a bright and lovely person, but she hates being weirdly misunderstood.”

“What a strange misunderstanding.”

A name popped into my mind at that moment.

It must have been Paley Easley who spilled the strange things about me.

“Because I don’t think there is any reason for a dress to be just pink, yellow, or purple.”

“… … ?”

“Dyeing the fabric is actually quite laborious.
It takes a lot of work.”

I said whatever came to mind.

“Yeah right.
Yellow, in particular, uses precious dyes, which are quite expensive, and are all dependent on imports.
Even purple comes from seashells, and 10,000 can only extract 1.5 grams of dye.”

Oh, did you?

I nodded awkwardly, but Adrian said again with a thoughtful face.

“Ribe, did you know? The yellow dye comes from the Cobain flower, which only grows in the high mountains.
But recently, due to diplomatic issues, supply and demand have been unstable.
Besides, the production of clams that produce purple has plummeted these days, so there is a lot of talk.”

“… … .”

“Well, the dye is a part of the problem, and I was quite troubled with various things.
Did you know by any chance you heard from Oliver?”

No, it wasn't anything like that.

“Because of that, dye prices are skyrocketing.
I thought there was no way not to wear it at all, but to see you, the daughter of a marquess, taking the lead in wearing an achromatic dress like this.”

“Oh, no.
I didn't take the lead.”

“I didn’t know how to find a breakthrough.
Rivera really…
… .”

Whoa, what is this all about?

Why did I suddenly become a projected image?

So it was just because I didn't want to look pretty to Zerlac.

I just wanted to go messy and show off the beautiful Leonie!

Not for such a grand reason!

“No, like that.
It's not like that, I'm just the way I am…
… .”

“As it is?”

“… … .”

“I guess there was also an intention to get out of revealing myself with external things like jewelry or a dress.
Oh my gosh.
How did you come up with that idea?”


No, I didn't mean to do anything like that.

“Ribe, it's really amazing.”

What is this atmosphere?

But regardless of my embarrassment, Adrian's face was very moved.


“I think I have a lot to learn from you.”
