I sat down and stroked my chin.

What should I do to make the Grand Duke believe me? When I thought about it, I think I came up to him without any preparation.

I can’t believe I rushed into him.

“Why am I taking up so much time today?”

“I don’t know either.
But… I know one thing.
Many of the people next to you leak your information to the outside world.”

“I’ve already checked it once since the last incident.”

“But you haven’t revealed anything, have you?”

“That’s right.
I can predict who sent the assassin, but I can’t determine who it is.”

That’s a relief.
I was worried that the Grand Duke would fully believe in his people, but fortunately, I don’t think that’s it.

“That’s a relief.”

“What are you talking about?”

“I’ll help you from now on, so you have to believe me!”

That’s what I said, but I actually don’t have much information.

Nevertheless, I stretched my shoulders proudly.

And I proudly pushed the silver spoon I brought into him.

“A spoon?”

It’ll show you how close they are now to hurt you.”

The room became quiet.

“What are we going to do with this?”

“I’m going to check for poison.”

“Check? Did someone poison me?”


“But wine is the only thing that’s here.”

While talking, he pointed at his head with a despondent smile, perhaps he had already realized.
It was natural that his complexion turned white like a person who was greatly shocked.

I put a silver spoon into the wine before he got more shock.

I imagined that for a moment.
What if the “bad guy” didn’t put poison in here?

Did I do something stupid? What if I lose the trust I can get from the Grand Duke? My hands trembled a little at the thought of that.

But at that moment, the color of the silver spoon, which looked murky and blurry submerged into the red wine, changed gradually.

For a moment, I thought it was a relief, so I laughed profusely, but I sighed from the regret that it was confirmed that the Grand Duke was eating poison.

The Grand Duke took out the spoon with a dejected smile.

The exact color of the part where the wine touched had changed.
As if to show how far the spoon was contained, the spoon changed like a drawing of an accurate line.

“What a fool.
Did you not know I was taking poison?”

“You are not stupid.
It’s the fault of the people who cheated on you.”

“But being foolish is being foolish.”

While self-contemplating himself, he continued to laugh in vain.
And looking at it, I got up from my seat and approached his side.

“How did you know that the wine is poisoned when you’re trying to fool me?”

“They purposely aimed for the wine as silver utensils are not used.”


“If you keep saying you’re stupid, you become really stupid, so don’t say you really are because you are not a fool.”

“And! If my dad is an idiot, so am I, your daughter, an idiot too?”

Looking at me as I approached him, the Grand Duke smiled and stroked my head.

“Your consolation method is rather unique.”


“It comforts me strangely.
It’s clumsy, but it comforts me.”

“That’s a relief!”

The Grand Duke fiddled with the spoon to see if he was finally out of shock.

“I’ll catch him right away and kill him.
How dare him feed me poison?”


“What do you mean ‘no’?”

“It’s not just one person.”

“Is there another one?”


There were but these people were still unclear.

In the past, I didn’t pay any attention to the Grand Duke, so I didn’t pay much attention to this situation.
Now, everything is ambiguous.

I didn’t even know if it’s ambiguous because I didn’t hear anything or if it’s ambiguous in a way because there’s another reason.

“There’s more, but you can’t say it yet?”

“Yeah! So if you’re going to catch them, you’d better catch them all at once.”

“I see.
I understand… I’m sure they’ll hide themselves or run away when what they’re doing is revealed.”

Only then did he strongly nod his head.
Now, like a man who made up his mind, the face of the Grand Duke had returned just like before.

He looked strong, and he is cooler than anyone else.

“You look good.”

Now that I feel like he is back to his original state, I remembered something and beamed a smile.

It was then…

As I was smiling like a fool all by myself, the Grand Duke jumped up from his seat.
He hugged me as he kneeled on the floor with a sigh of relief.

“Wh-What are you doing?”

“Oh, I forgot to say something and just hugged.
It seems it has become a habit because Harris likes to hug me like this.”

“Uh… Oh, I’ll let you off today.”

“I’ll be careful next time.”

“More than that, Bebe, what’s your wish? Didn’t you tell me this for just a single wish?”

At times like this, he’s quick to catch on.
But it’s very comfortable.

I didn’t have to tell him, but I did on my own.

Of course, it’s a little uncomfortable because he understands my thoughts the other way around and then misunderstands it, but it’s generally good.

“Oh right!”

“So, what’s the wish you want to tell me?”

“You know how much I need you, right?”
