Rosalyn accept his offer.

He was helping her because he needed a friend for his beloved wife ,so there was no need to worry that anyone would be misunderstood and his reputation would suffer because of her.

And if she works hard as a talkative companion, she’ll pay for her own meal, so she won’t feel sorry to get his help.

Rosalyn thought at the time.

‘You came all the way to here instead of your work because you needed a companion for your wife.
I envy them because they are a good couple.’

But when I actually stayed in the Tordell mansion, the relationship between the duke and his wife was very different from what I thought.

The Duchess was as elegant and beautiful as I imagined.
Very well suited to Aslan, a handsome man.

However, the couple’s relationship was somehow awkward.

Rosalyn thought it was because she was an outsider, so they weren’t being intimate on purpose.

But.

‘I didn’t know there was such a thing.
That his wife took his weakness and threatened him? I feel so sorry for the Duke.’

Relieving her surprise, Rosalyn continued to think.

‘I want to comfort the Duke.
If I hug him in a warm embrace, maybe he will feel a little more at ease… … .’

Rosalyn’s hazy eyes opened wide.
How can she think of such a strange thing herself? She couldn’t believe it.

At that time, Aslan asked, as if he had noticed her insidious intent.

“Are you okay, Miss Rosalyn?”

“Yes.”

Rosalyn tried to answer him as she struggled, pretending to be okay.

No matter how much she found out about his secrets, he was still a married man, even though he had made a ‘contract under threat’ with his wife.

Although the duchess was only a nominal wife, he was a man with a family.

So, it was right for Rosalyn herself to stop being delusional and be careful about her words and actions.

“Your face is red.
I am worried that you may have caught a cold.”

But no matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t help it that her face was dyed rosy in front of Aslan.

“…… Are there any inconveniences in your stay?”

“Oh, no! I, I really like it.
I’m happy that I can stay here.”

Rosalyn stuttered and expressed her candid feelings.
She was really happy.
Being able to be sweet with Aslan, being in the same room as him, having these conversations.

…… Even if he doesn’t know her heart and feelings.

“Then I’m happy, but if you ever need anything, please let me know.”

The sentences of the novel came to my mind clearly as if I had just read it.

‘Why did I forget?’

I contrasted the content of the original in my memory with the situation I had just seen.

Not all lines are the same, but they are similar enough to be in the scene.

‘You must have told her the details of how you got married before I eavesdroped.’

I listened to their conversation halfway , so I didn’t know what Aslan and Rosalyn were talking about before.

But I could guess.
Perhaps it was a story from the original.

‘If so, today is the day.’

The appearance of the two people I had just glimpsed at was one of the most important turning point of the novel.

In the original story, Rosalyn had a crush on Aslan since their first meeting, but after she found out that he was married, she deliberately tried to kill her feelings for him.

However, each time she received Aslan’s tender care , her feelings for him only grew stronger.

Faithful Rosalyn deceived herself thinking her feelings were of thank-you and respect for her patron.

Everyone fell for her lies even herself.

Aslan and Rosalyn gradually got closer, but no matter how much time they spent together, the two did not cross the line.

She kept hiding her growing love, and it was the first time she had seen such a narrow emotional line explode.

The moment Rosalyn, who had denied her feelings all along, saw her true feelings for him the first time.

Rosalyn was delighted to see Aslan confessing a secret to her that he had never told anyone.

She was the only one whom he told the truth about his marriage, so she could love Aslan instead of giving up.

When the social taboos that had blocked her so far disappeared, the latch of her mind was released.

That’s when Rosalyn first realized her love for Aslan.

‘When I read it in the novel, it was a very exciting and fun scene.’

When it unfolded in front of me, it was not fun at all.
