nce the  last dance.
Isn’t it?”

“Yes, Miss Rosalyn.
We all know that all the gentlemen who sent these flowers fell in love with you at a glance.”

Those who had been silently listening also added.

It must not have been long since they started going in and out of this place, but it seemed comfortable as if it were a familiar place.
Rosalyn, the other ladies she invited.

In the doorway I watched them talk.

They were all familiar faces.
the social frontiers in their respective domains.

The thing they were most impressed with was  the achievement of Rosalyn within only 3 days of her debut in the social world.

I can’t believe she got what I didn’t get after three years of hard work and she got it so easily and quickly.
I couldn’t even laugh.

Then, someone found me watching them.

“……Oh, Duchess of Tordell!”

The excited air subsided in an instant.

The color disappeared from the faces of the people who were so excited that they were flushed, and the chattering mouths were tightly closed.

I was the one who broke the heavy silence in front of the ladies who exchanged only their eyes.

“Everyone seems to be having fun.”

I greeted the ladies with eye contact.

“I just stopped by because I heard you talking, so don’t mind and go on with what you were doing.”

However, even if I shook my hand and expressed it as okay, the same atmosphere as before did not return.

Would it be so uncomfortable for me to be here?

I’m used to it by now, but it wasn’t very pleasant to be ostracized openly.

While swallowing bitterness and touching her fingertips, Rosalyn broke the awkward atmosphere.

“I’m sorry.
Were we too loud?”


As I smiled and said, Rosalyn, who was looking at me, sighed softly and swept her chest.

She soon explained the situation by lowering her eyebrows.

“I should have told Aslan’s wife first and asked her permission even if he said it was okay.
It’s all because I’m ignorant and lacking.
I’m sorry I made a mistake, ma’am.”

Listening to Rosalyn, I paused and hardened myself.

Rosalyn’s talk was meaningless, just floating around my ears like a bee’s loud buzzing.

My whole nerves were somewhere else than her continuous words.

……What did Rosaline just call Aslan?

“But Aslan told me to make myself at home.
He said I could invite as many people as I want.….”

It seemed that my heart, which had subsided coldly, was revealed on the surface.
Rosalyn’s chattering voice grew smaller and smaller.

I stood absent-mindedly in front of Rosalyn, who was apologizing, and I continued to ponder about what she had said earlier.

To be exact, the name she called Aslan.

“……Did Aslan allow you to say his name?”

Rosalyn’s eyes widened, perhaps unexpectedly about what I pointed out.

The ladies seated behind Rosalyn looked at me as if they were looking at someone who did not know the gravity of the incident.

 Of course I knew it well.  what is more important.

 Now, the first thing I need to sort out is not the title, but the fact that Rosalyn invited people without permission from me, the hostess.

 Normally, I wouldn’t have reacted this way.

I would have put the dignity and face that the hostess of the Tordell family must have first, and tried to correct the wrong.

However, to me now, trivial naming problems were more important than others.

Especially now that the female protagonist with sparkling green eyes appears.

“Can you tell me?”

As I urged, Rosalyn stammered as she looked at me in bewilderment.

Well, we’ve known each other since we were kids, so while I’m staying here, he  told me to  think about him like my own brother and call each other’s names comfortably.”

It was a perfect word.

He tried to help the people who looked pitiful.  I knew it well because I was the beneficiary of that good character.

 I could guess the intention of what was just said.

 He must have said that on purpose to be considerate of Rosalyn, who would be lonely among strangers.  He wants to provide a corner for her to rely on.

 But, even though I understood it all in my head, I bit my lip in impatientness.

 It was okay for him to bring a woman other than me to the mansion, and to help her because he felt pity for her situation.

 It wasn’t because it was the original, or because it was destined to happen.

 Because it’s Aslan.  Because Aslan Tordell is kind and thoughtful.

It’s Aslan.
It’s Aslan Tordell who’s kind and considerate.

Even if it wasn’t Rosaline, he wouldn’t ignore people like her.

So things have been fine so far.

But allowing names was different
