Chapter 27: The Man Above the Clouds

“Thank you for your patience, ladies and gentlemen; the ceremony is about to begin; please proceed to the garden.”

When the butler’s voice is heard, the crowd begins to move as if they have just awoken from a dream.

Elliott looked worriedly into Olivia’s eyes.

“Are you okay?”

Olivia is able to nod.

“Let me explain later, please,” he says quietly, but she can’t think straight because of all that has happened.

She was aware that she had been saved.

She’s also aware that her uncle’s family and Viscount Bergor will not be able to harm her in the future.

So [Thank you for your help.]

Olivia knows she should say something, but the words won’t come out.

When Elliott sees Olivia stunned, he bites his lips lightly and makes a sad face.

He’s about to open his mouth to say something when,

“This way, Elliot-sama!”

Viscount Bergor enters with a big smile, and Elliot’s mouth is closed.

They are then led into the garden.

The wedding ceremony began in the church room built into the garden. 

The bride and groom arrive, Catherine with a lifeless white face and Henry distraught.

Her aunt and uncle, who are in the guardianship seat, are as pale as if they had been painted. 

The pastor, who has no idea what’s going on, performs the marriage rites.

While those in attendance look puzzled and curiously at Olivia and Elliot, who are sitting on the witness stand a little further away.

In the midst of it all,

Olivia does nothing but sit in her chair.

All she can think about is the incredible event that just occurred in front of her eyes.

(…Elliot is related to the Duke of Flarence?)

She struggles to move her paralyzed head. 

She didn’t realize that there was no such person as Elliott Dixx.

And that, for Olivia, a baronet’s daughter, Elliot was a man above her, someone she couldn’t even talk to, someone she wasn’t allowed to have feelings for.


She feels a sharp pain in her chest and presses it involuntarily.

It’s all she can do to maintain her expression.


As witnesses, Olivia and Elliot sign the marriage certificate.

“It is a great pleasure for me to have Elliot-sama’s signature as a witness,” says Viscount Bellegarde, but Olivia can’t get it through her head.

The signing concludes the ceremony.

The participants are making their way to the main building’s dining room for dinner.

Olivia and Elliot are escorted to a special table in the dining room.

The most lavish meal is served, but it tastes like you’re eating sand.

She manages to keep her face composed, but her eyes seem to well up if she isn’t careful.

Elliot gives Olivia a concerned look.

“Are you okay, Olivia?”

“I’m fine,” Olivia says as brightly as she can.

“I’m just too surprised to think clearly right now.”

“Is that so?” Elliot asks, looking down painfully.

He tried to speak to her several times, but he was so preoccupied with the people who came to greet him that he didn’t have time to talk.

When the meal is finished, it’s time to leave.

Elliot was the first to rise, reaching out a hand to Olivia.

“Let’s go.” 

Olivia fixed her gaze on the extended hand.

It’s the big, warm hand that had shielded her.

But now she’s afraid she’ll cry if she touches it.

She shook her head and stood up herself.

“… I’m going to the restroom for a bit.” 

She didn’t really need to use the restroom, but she needed some alone time.

Elliot looked worried.

“Are you sure you want to go alone? Do you want me to accompany you?

“I’m fine,” Olivia says, pointing to the green door at the end of the open corridor.

“The restroom is through that green door over there.”

“Oh, it’s close, isn’t it?”

Elliot looks relieved. 

“Well, I’ll be back in a bit.”

“Yes—be careful.”

Olivia feels Elliot’s gaze on her back as she walks to the venue’s door.

The floor is hazy, and her balance is off, but she tries to appear normal.

also at the restroom entrance.

A maid stands at the door and says, 

“Your luggage, please.” 

She hands over her handbag, opens the door to the restroom, and walks in.

The moment she closed the door, she got a shock. 

Her body receives a jolt.

Then there was darkness.

“It was successful.”

“Take her with you.”

with men’s voices saying that

Olivia passed out.
