be revealed.


“I greeted the Grand Duke briefly in the morning.
I haven’t been able to spare time to visit Leila because I’ve been beside you all this time.
Maybe I’ll see her at dinner tonight.”


“Did you tell the Duke about the dream?”


Chloe asked without attempting to conceal her anxiety.


‘Why is she so worried about it?’


Gerard wondered, but he let it slide.


“No I didn’t because I wasn’t sure how much you have talked with them about it.”




Chloe sighed inwardly.
Things didn’t seem to have gotten worse, as she assumed.


“About my dream… Can you not tell the Duke and Leila about it, please?”


Chloe spoke too directly, perhaps because she was relieved.
Gerard naturally couldn’t help but wonder.


‘She hasn’t told the Anata couple about her dream? Why?’


His wife only came to the North to tell Leila about her dream in the first place.


Rather, her husband… Leila, who believed Chloe’s precognitive dreams as 100% correct, couldn’t just ignore his wife’s words.


Leila would have to persuade Frederick if she wanted him to believe it.


His wife only had to tell the precognitive dream to Leila.
Yet she still hadn’t told them about her dream? He thought the situation was contradictory.


Gerard stiffened his face at the somewhat suspicious atmosphere.
He felt as if his wife was hiding something from him.


‘Did she really come to the North because of Leila?’


At that moment, the rumor from high society he had learned before he left the Capital came to mind.




-I’ll be fine, so tell me.


There are rumors circulating in high society that the Marchioness went up to the North alone because she couldn’t forget her first love.
The reason why the Knight Commander of Anata Order didn’t get married was because he couldn’t forget the Marchioness…


The person who told him about the rumor hesitated because he was involved, and they felt sorry for him.
There was a place in high society that created embarrassing and dirty rumors by gathering the existing facts and making up things that never happened.


Gerard had vowed that he would deal with those who dared to spread rumors about his wife when they returned.


Yes, it was Gerard who dismissed it as a false rumor all this time.
However, what his wife said and did were increasing his anxiety.


‘If she didn’t come to the North for Leila… Then… What brought her to the North? Why would Chloe lie to me?’


The scene he saw in his recent dream bothered him.
It was the face of his wife who smiled shyly at a man other than him.
Gerard shook his head to shake off the unpleasant image.


However, it disappeared only after planting the seeds of jealousy in the corner of his heart.




In the end, Chloe couldn’t attend dinner that evening.
Having eaten an early dinner, she took medicine and went to sleep again.


Of course, she didn’t forget to deliver a small note to Leila through Jane before going to bed.
The content of the note was asking her to not say anything about the letters to Gerard.
Chloe got a reply that she didn’t have to worry about it.


Gerard watched his wife fall asleep, and proceeded to attend dinner with Abel.
Although he wanted to stay with his wife for a bit longer, he couldn’t miss the dinner because he hadn’t formally greeted the Anata family yet.


“Huh? Are you a prince?”


“What, Renee?”


That’s what Rennesia said when she saw Gerard for the first time.
Frederick’s eyes turned round at her words.
Prince? This sly man, a prince?

“Haha, oh yes.
Gerard resembles the prince in Renee’s fairy tale book.”


Leila laughed as if it was too funny.
It was because the prince in the fairy tale book [The Tall-Tale Teller Princess and the Mute Prince], which Renee was currently into these days, resembled Gerard closely.


Actually, in terms of hair and eye color, the prince looked more like Abel, but in Renee’s eyes, Gerard, who was an adult, looked more like a prince.


“Oh, she’s being shy.”


Leila pinched her daughter’s cheek because the little girl was so cute.
Renee’s cheeks became beet red.


“Pleased to meet you, the Eternal Lady of the North.
I’m Gerard Blanchett.
It’s an honor to be referred to as a prince.”


Gerard greeted the child with a smile.
There was no reason not to smile.
It was satisfying to see Frederick grab Renee hurriedly and glare at him. 


‘So he knows how to make that kind of expression as well.’


“He’s not a prince.
He’s my father.”


Gerard didn’t see his son puffing out his chest because he was too busy observing Frederick’s offended expression.


“No, he… looks more like a knight!”


Noah, who sat beside him, talked about the character in his favorite fairy tale book, [Evan’s Adventure].


‘Oh, boy.’


Frederick snorted when even his reliable son betrayed him.


Noah had never called him a ‘knight’ even though he was the one who read the book to his son every night.
The kid didn’t even know how to read yet, that’s why he always tried to read it for him, and the title wasn’t given to him?


For the time being, Noah was forbidden from listening to [Evan’s Adventure].
