“Yes, it’s really close.
That’s why His Highness said there is no room as reliable as this room.”

Contrary to my expectations that the room would be changed after the assassin incident, the Grand Duke did not change the room.

I wondered if it was annoying to move my mom and I to a new room, or if there were other reasons…

“Is it because it’s the room closest to his room?”

It wasn’t just that.

In front of his door, there was a pattern of a dragon biting a knife.
If there’s anything else, the direction was different.

“He wasn’t in the room at that time, but since then, hHs Highness has rarely stayed in the room.”

“For my mom and I…”

Instead of answering, Cecilia smiled and looked towards the door.

As soon as we appeared, the butler, who had been on standby the whole time, made eye contact with Cecilia.

“Cecilia!”

“Can you tell me who’s inside?”

“There’s a guest inside.”

“Oh, is that so? There’s nothing I can do.
Miss Bebe, I think you’ll have to wait a little longer.”

“I’ll just wait then.”

Standing in front of the room, I was also nervous, especially since I lived without knowing that it was the most amount of tension I have experienced in my whole lifetime.

“I should’ve hugged the penguin doll.”

If I had the penguin doll, I would have felt mentally relieved.

Somehow, my hands were sweaty, and my legs kept shaking.
Then the door opened and a man came out from the inside.

He was an impressive man with red hair and pale skin.

Like someone who had something to say, he looked at me for a long time.
Therefore, I couldn’t even see that the servant who was guarding the front of the room went inside properly.

“It’s my first time seeing a lady walking around like this.
I’ve always seen you from afar.”

“Curtis.”

“You are here, too, Cecilia.”

“Yes.
My Lady, this is Curtisderron.”

“Oh, yeah! Nice to meet you.
I’m Bebe!”

However, he, who had been smiling as if he were a good person a while ago, slightly hardened his expression and dropped down in front of me.

“I can’t call you just Bebe, My Lady.”

“Huh?”

At that moment, I wondered what he was saying to me, but his arms fiddled, took something out, and stuck it out.

It was a candy with round like eggs and at the end of it was a white stick.
The candy is wrapped around the shiny plastic wrap.
At the moment, I was captivated by it.

“The Lady is not just Bebe, but Princess Bebe Avelant.
So when you introduce yourself somewhere, you must say you are Bebe Avelant.”

“H-Huh?”

“Okay?”

“Uh, okay.”

When I nodded in a hurry, Curtis gave me candy.

“It tastes like strawberries.”

“Strawberry flavored candy…”

“My son likes it, too.
It’ll probably suit your taste.”

Those who gave delicious food were good people.
He wasn’t scolding me or anything.
Rather, he just said something that sounded like advice, as if he was trying to protect my position.

‘Good person!’

Though I didn’t say that he’s a good person just because I got candy.

“Thank you!”

“You’re so cute.”

He looked down at me and looked at the door.

“I want to talk to you more, but I should stop here for today.”

Curtis, who was talking with his eyes slightly crinkled, said his greetings when the door opened slowly.

“Okay! See you next time!”

“Very well, My Lady.”

Just in time, the butler, who went inside to report, ran out.

“You can come in right away.”

“Yes!”

“My Lady, I’ll be here.
Will you come back?”

While looking at Cecilia, who spoke with anxiety, I entered the room.

As if all the light in the world had disappeared, the room was only dark.
It was a large room, as if three rooms were combined.
After a while, the Grand Duke was fixated on my eyes.
He was sitting as several doors were opened, looking at something and was focused on it.

“What are you doing?”

It wasn’t too late, but the moment I entered this place, I felt like my sense of time was fading.

It’s as if I was under the illusion that it’s midnight.

Maybe it’s because the unusually bright moonlight shone on us.

After a long time, he put down the documents he was looking at and slowly looked at me.

“I didn’t know you’d come to my room.
Are you doing your greetings?”

“Oh? Do I have to do something like that?”

“That I don’t know.”

“Why? Is there anyone who does that?”

“Harris does that.
She said she should see my face every day.”

I nodded without emotion.

There’s no reason for me to do it just because Harris was doing it.

“Oh, okay.”

“You don’t look like you’re thinking about doing it, do you?

“Yeah! You want me to do it?”

“If you don’t want to do it, you don’t have to.”

However, his lips slightly flinched.
Even though I saw it, I pretended not to know and approached him.
