Episode 4

This was a quick decision!

As I was about to get up, I heard a noise around.

“How happy would it be to marry Sir Dylan?”

To be more precise, I would say that the word marriage made me still.

“Even though he is a commoner, he would soon receive a title for his achievements.”

Come to think of it, he must be in the age to get married soon.

Maybe with me…?

Oh no.

A woman who wants to get married with him has lined up like that, and he can’t accept me.

After shaking my head, I got up and walked briskly.

Since the battle with Sir Toby was over, I had to talk quickly.

“Sir Toby.
Could you come to the warehouse next to the gallows for a moment?”

Sir Toby looked at me at my stiff tone and smiled brightly.

“Ah yes, administrator Ishael! What’s the matter?”

“It is very important.”

I am very nervous to explain my situation and propose to you.

‘It’s my first time proposing.’

Without looking back, I headed for the warehouse next to the gallows.

However, it was when I had just turned my back to the quiet warehouse where there were few people.

“…?”

Before my eyes stood another knight, not Sir Toby.

Is it weird?

Why is everyone’s ideal type, Sir Dylan here?

I glanced around.

There was no one near the alley as if a fence had been put down.

‘What is this?’

I couldn’t figure out the situation.

I opened my mouth carefully.

“What about Sir Toby?”

Sir Dylan whispered quietly.

“Sir Toby is dead.”

Eh.

Sir Toby died suddenly?

“What? He’s dead?”

This is how my marriage partner dies…?

But it’s unbelievable.

“Obviously, he was still alive until recently.”

To my words, he replied with his eyes down.

“It’s a mistake.”

Am I hallucinating?

I think I heard a grinding sound.

I blinked my eyes and tilted my head.

Then Sir Dylan opened his lips and muttered softly.

“Toby…is  busy.
I will deliver it for you.”

I think the words were a bit futile.

But that’s not the point.

It’s important that there’s no Sir Toby here.

And what I was going to say was not a story that could convey instead.

Where in the world was there a case where a proposal was delivered instead?

“It must be Sir Toby…”

His voice got even lower.

“So I can’t…?”

He looked at me with a still low-pitched voice, yet with a seductive face.

I almost fell for it.

But it was then that I felt something strange.

‘Why is this guy speaking so faintly?’

I came to my senses quickly and said firmly.

“Right.”

“…Ah.”

Dylan drooped his shoulders.

Well, maybe he was a little shocked.

He has never been rejected in his entire life.

“Ah, well then, goodbye.”

I put the proposal letter I was going to give to Sir Toby in my pocket.

Because I knew exactly what it was like to be embarrassed the moment this marriage proposal was released to the world.

But it was time to take a step forward.

The sky was indifferent.

I couldn’t see the stone on the ground because I was organizing the proposal.

Thud-!

Falling down was a natural occurrence.

Fortunately, my hip didn’t hurt that much, but I did have a problem.

The proposal letter with the words [Sir Toby, the reason you should marry me] as large as a door fell to the grassy ground, exactly on Sir Dylan’s boots!

This is crazy.

I quickly reached out and picked up the marriage proposal.

“…What is this?”

Sir Dylan’s eyes fluttered violently.

I think he saw the contents of the marriage proposal.

“Then I’ll go now!”

I limped and ran away in a hurry.

There seemed to be a voice behind me of Sir Dylan calling me hastily.

But!

I’m so embarrassed that I can’t look back!

It was evening time.

Forgetting all the previous shame, I summoned my best friend, Henry.

I was going to propose over a drink.

And picking up any good information about the house.

“Anyway, house prices are never set.
It’s definitely going upward.”

“Is that so?”

There is only news where I’m sighing over.

“It has already risen to over 500 million gold.
Are house prices going down? It’s just a total scam.”

“Then there is no way for ordinary people like us to buy a house?”

“How much is it to live on a lot of loans? By the way, loan regulations are blocked now.
The only answer is private loans.”

Let me hear some more pessimistic things like this.

‘I’m getting mad again because they’re taking out loans.’

Thinking about the money my parents spent irresponsibly made my teeth ache.

It shouldn’t be like this.

I also want a drink.

Gradually, I should start a marriage proposal that aims to isolate me from my family.

“I have something to say.”

“What is that expression? It’s like looking at the enemy of a hateful parent.”

Are my eyes burning like that?

However, Henry’s words were absurd.

The enemy of the enemy is my friend, and the enemy of my parents is my friend.

I coughed loudly and said.

“Let’s get married.
Never, never will I ever love you, and I will divorce you as soon as the contract ends!”

And Henry, who looked at me with a faint gaze, answered quietly.

“What?”

Could I hear the cold water being poured from somewhere?

“Are you trying to experiment with me after reading romance novels?”

Novels are just novels.

Usually, the female characters in romance novels do this when they propose to the Grand Duke.

Looking at Henry in front of me, I felt cold.

“How did you know that I read the novel?”

“Only the people in the novel would say that?”

“You’re a genius”

“Anyway, I can’t because my dream is not a loveless marriage.
But really, why all of a sudden?”

“Why do you think so?”

“You broke up with him.”

I took another drink and smiled bitterly.

“Ah…”

“You broke up and went crazy… Anyway, I can’t.
My goal is to get married after dating for over 5 years.”

Ha, it was like that.

Of course, I expected it.

“I get it… If you know someone who can be a good husband, introduce him to me within the next 24 hours.
I’m going to find Sir Toby.”

“What? Suddenly? Hey, are you going to propose to Sir Toby?”

“Yes.”

“Well, there seems to be a possibility if it is a contract marriage.
Contract marriage is booming because of romance novels.”

What the hell-

Why are you so unbiased when your friend says they will get married in 24 hours?

He even patted me on the shoulder.

“Hey.
Be strong! Please hold on and live.”

I shook my head sullenly towards him.

If I can’t get married within 24 hours, I’ll get stuck in a pile of debt.

I have to be very, very, very sane now.

“Uh, thank you, my friend.”

I’ll have to go back to the office at once.

Sir Toby is probably working in the Knights Templar right now.

As far as I know, he was trying to make money and pay off his family’s debts.

He doesn’t hesitate to work more at night.

That was when I sprinted through the door of the bar and entered the Imperial Palace.

The hallway passing through the training area.

In front of a dark alley with more passersby than expected, someone blocked my way.
Read only at pm tl.

“Oh my!”

I thought my heart was going to drop.

What is it?

Why is Sir Dylan standing solemnly before my eyes?

I stuttered and asked hastily.

“What’s wrong?”

“I waited.”

He didn’t even care about the eyes of the many men and women around him.

It just looked like it was going to eat me up.

“Yes?”

“I wanted to ask, so I kept waiting.”

Am I drunk right now?

Why does it look like Sir Dylan’s face is blushing?

He was the kind of person who only had a silent confrontation without any close friends.

He even said that he was a blunt man who couldn’t smile at anyone.

There’s no way such a person can blush.

But he suddenly blocks my way.

“What are you trying to ask me?”

I looked at him and thought to myself.

‘Did this person drink too?’

Then he licked his lips and whispered in a small voice.

“…The reason for wanting to marry Sir Toby.”

“What?”

I thought I didn’t hear properly, so I asked, but he mumbled softly again.

“Why Toby?”

“…What?”

“Why does it have to be Toby?”
