Episode 1

Wilhelm, sitting on the other side of the table, looked anxious.

It was a pretty awkward expression for him, who had just gotten engaged just last week.

“Thank you for coming all the way here today, Karina.”


At Wilhelm’s words, I spoke as if it was no big deal.

He was speechless.
A teacup was placed in front of us, and silence continued until the people at the surrounding table changed.

Finally, being impatient, I asked.

“So, why did you call me here?”

Wilhelm raised his head at my question.
Even the determination was young in the red eyes that looked at me. 

“Actually, I called because I have something to confess to you.”


Now all of a sudden?

We have been dating for over two years.
And recently, after a long love affair, the promise of engagement was concluded.

If it’s important, shouldn’t he have said it before the engagement?

I had an ominous feeling.

“No matter how hard I tried, there was something I couldn’t do.”

“What does that…mean?”

“I tried to forget her, but it wasn’t easy.”


I opened and closed my mouth at the words that flowed out of my fiance’s mouth.

He didn’t say the name of the woman he was referring to, but I seemed to know who it was.

The protagonist of this world and your first love.

“Are you talking about the Grand Duchess of Gloucester?”

“What about Tatiana…?”

“You have to be precise, Wilhelm.
She is of a higher rank than you, since she married the Duke of Gloucester and became the Duchess.”

Wilhelm’s face hardened at my point.
But he didn’t care.

I was more concerned that her name was suddenly drawn out than that.

Isn’t the ominous premonition still wrong?

“After all, you can’t replace Titi.”

Nonsense came out of Wilhelm’s mouth.
Who is replacing whom?

I’ve never, never tried to take the place of Tatiana.

I put strength in my hands to contain my anger.
I wondered what that cheeky man would even say.

“I still love Titi.”

“Yes, so?”

Wilhelm’s face contorted at my indifferent reaction.

What did he want me to do?

To my fiance who suddenly summoned me and confessed that he had never forgotten his first love, I spoke with anger disguised as a cold one.

“What do you mean by telling that story only after the engagement ceremony is over? If you had said it a few weeks ago, it would have been a lot easier for me to end the relationship.”

“I want to get married.”

What kind of bullshit-

You love Tatiana, but you want to marry me? Read only at pm tl.


“Anyway, it won’t be easy to go and find another man.
I’m confident I’ll give you anything you want.
Except for one thing, my heart.”

“I’m sorry, but I don’t want that.”

“Think about it, Karina.”

At this point, there was no reason to listen to such low-level stories.

“For me to get married like this? So you’re talking about becoming Tatiana’s paramour? With the name of my family?”

Wilhelm was the second son of Marquis Hunt.

Our engagement was arranged by my father, who cherished his excellent sword skills.

He was going to join our family as his son-in-law.

But shamelessly, he confessed to me that he would become Tatiana’s paramour under the name of my family.

“I won’t disappoint you in any other way.
After all, aren’t we in an arranged marriage? I think you’ll understand this.
I wouldn’t mind if you let in man yourself…”

Was he such a man?

I said to him with a mean laugh as much as I could.

“I’m sorry, but I can’t tolerate such absurd behavior.
I’m sure Duke Gloucester would have the same idea.”

It meant that if he did something stupid, I would immediately confess his wish to the Duke of Gloucester.

Wilhelm’s face wrinkled in an instant as if he understood what I meant.

“You’d better not threaten Titi.”

“Does she even know about this? The woman I know isn’t prodigal or stupid enough to have a paramour.”

“I don’t know about Titi.
It’s just something I personally want…”

“So, you want to get married now, and become a paramour without the other person’s consent?” 

Wilhelm kept his mouth shut at my sarcasm.

Alas, you are the same.

I got up without a word.
I picked up the now-cooled teacup that was in front of me.

And poured it over his well-groomed blue hair.

The beautiful face realized the situation late and was horribly distorted.
