her hand on her elbows.


“Why didn’t you say anything and just quit? It’s unfortunate.
Ah, or did they say you were fired? Anyhow, does it matter? Rather, I feel it’s quite good.”


“What are you talking–”


Diana glanced at her surroundings.
Everyone was busy walking, so no one was interested in her.


“Your life must’ve been hard, getting fired without a single recommendation letter.”


Lord Hauzen spoke pretentiously as if he felt it was regrettable.


“That’s why, how about coming to our household and working there?”




“I’ll give you a lot more than the Baron.”


Diana barely managed her face from crumpling up.


“Thank you for the offer, but I’m f-fine.”


“Don’t be like that, yeah?”


“I’m really fine.”


Lord Hauzen came close to her.
Diana grabbed the hem of her skirt, and took a step away, but Lord Hauzen took a step forward with every step back.


“C-can you please move a bit farthe–”


“You’d better think about it carefully.
You don’t even have any parents, right?”




“If you serve me well, I might also become your guardian, you know?”


Diana swallowed her saliva, as she felt her mouth dry.


“Uhm, Lord Hauzen has Miss Atticia as your fiance.
If you keep acting like this, it’s going to be a problem.”




As if her words were ridiculous, Lord Hauzen snorted and kicked the stone floor.
His threatening appearance made her shoulders shrink.


“Isn’t this such a ridiculously funny bitch? This arrogant wench doesn’t even know its place.
What in the world are you talking about right now?!”


Her shoulders shrank at Lord Hauzen’s shout.
She glanced around to see if anyone took notice of this commotion.


However, as people saw Lord Hauzen’s noble appearance, they ignored the two and quickly walked away in fear of getting involved. 


“When did I say that I liked you? I asked when did I say that I liked you?!”




Diana bit her lips until they turned white.


How could he be so shameless?


Of course, he didn’t say it directly that he liked her.
However, his disgusting gaze as he looked at her while smacking his lips was enough for her to know.
How could she not know he was interested? Being young didn’t mean that she didn’t know anything.


“I’ve already said that I would take care of a child as low as you.
And you dare to refuse that?!”




“I mean, do you hate it that much when I tell you to work at my house? And you even dare to make that face? Who do you think you are? Who do you think you are?!”


Hauzen raised his arm threateningly and as if he was holding it in, retracted it and swept his hair back.


“Ah, you’re really making me angry.”


It was very easy to deal with a young maid like this.
He just had to scare her first and then pretend to be nice again.
Then, if she didn’t listen, his hands may go up a little, but the maid couldn’t refuse him anyway.


“You say that you’re thankful for my offer, but you won’t do it.
Then why are you making me mad?! Huh?!”


She was a maid he had been desiring ever since he first saw her in the Bordeaux mansion.
However, he could only taste the face of his fiance.
But now, he happened to have this opportunity.


He couldn’t miss this kind of once-in-a-lifetime chance.
Wasn’t she an orphan wench anyway? There would be nothing wrong even if he played with her and threw her away.


“No, I mean.
I shouldn’t have been angry like this.
It’s because you made me angry.
Right? It’s your fault, right?”


Should she say that she’s sorry? If she apologizes and holds it in, would this matter be let go?


‘… I don’t want to do it.’


She hated it.
She didn’t do anything wrong.
She didn’t want to apologize.
When she was at the Bordeaux mansion, everyone always asked her to just bear it.


They had always said that she should just endure it and move on.
That there was no reason for her to make things bigger.
Even though it wasn’t her fault.


Diana closed her lips and raised her head.


“I-I don’t want to.”




“Why do I have to apologize to Lord Hauzen?”


“What did you say just now?”


Lord Hauzen’s face turned red.
After saying it once, it was rather easy after that.


“I’m not grateful at all, rather I’m burdened.”


“You dare?!”


The moment Lord Hauzen raised his hand, Diana reflexively raised her hand and closed her eyes tightly.
However, there was no pain like she expected.


“So, you were right here.”


A gentle voice tickled her ears.
Diana gently opened her eyes.


A beautiful face with a delicate jawline that still stood out even if he was wearing a hoodie, appeared.
Diana’s thin open eyes became big.


Why was this person here?


Senir, who seemed exhausted for some reason, breathed out a relieved sigh and bowed down.




Following Senir’s gaze, Diana lowered her gaze along and let out a groan.


‘Huh? When did Sky follow me out?’


Senir handed Sky which was at his feet to her arms.
Sky whined and licked her face.
For a moment, her heart calmed down.


“What are you–”


Lord Hauzen put his hand on the shoulder of the person who stood in his way with a shrill voice.


“B-be careful.”


Diana grabbed the hem of Senir’s robe with a pale face.


Senir smiled as if asking her to not worry and turned slowly.
As he grabbed the hem of his hood and pulled it off, his sparkling platinum hair scattered under the sunlight.


Lord Hauzen’s eyes opened wide.


“O-O-O-O-Ohrid, the Esteemed Son of Ohrid?”


He was so flustered, that he said ‘Oh’ four times.


Listening to his words, Diana hardened as well.
What did he just say?
