udy and found an interesting book, but as I read it, it had already become late.”


Diana smiled brightly.


“Although it’s a relief if it’s like that….”


“It’s really fine.
I do it because I like it.”


Don’t overdo it.”


“Come to think of it, I heard you got to ride that horse.”


“Ah, even if I don’t, I’m thinking about its name.”


She had also learned horse riding consistently.
Yesterday, she finally climbed on the blue maned horse for the first time.


It had been a month since she brushed its mane and walked around holding its reins.
It was a success reached after consistent hard work.


Of course, everyone was so worried that she couldn’t even dream of running with it.


“Be careful.
Since that horse is too wild.”


I’ll be careful.”


“I don’t like knowing that such a small and insignificant creature, the horse, was choosing its owner.
Though seeing that it chose you, it seems like it’s smart.”


In the end, Diana burst into laughter.


Diana, who jumped up and ran, tightly hugged Grandmother who was sitting in a chair.


“Grandmother, you know I really like you, right?”


“Am I the one you like most?”


“Of course, you’re the first one.”


Grandmother, who was rubbing her cheek on Diana’s bright hair, paused.


“But I heard Spencer brag about being the first you like most….”




No, she meant, just when did he brag about that? She burst into laughter.
Grandmother asked in a serious voice.


“Who do you like more, Grandmother or Grandfather?”


“Now is Grandmother.”


Grandmother looked dissatisfied.


I’m saying that if….”


Grandmother stopped talking and looked at Diana.
Dianan tilted her head at her.




“No, it’s nothing.”


Grandmother stroked Diana’s head and raised herself up.


“It was a useless thought.”


Diana brought Grandmother a cane.


“Turns out you must have waited for a long time.
I’ll have to tell them to bring out the tea.”


Even if it was slow, Grandmother preferred to walk in the house rather than use a wheelchair.


At that time, she heard a knock on the door.


The number of people who could enter the office was very limited.
Grandfather, a maid who had been serving Grandmother since childhood, the butler, and Diana.


“Come in.”


Two people were seen through the open door.
The butler and—


“Count, the Little Young Master has returned.”


A welcome came after the unexpected meeting.
Following the butler, Senir entered the office.


‘It’s the first time since I came to Grandmother’s house, right?’


She hadn’t seen him for quite a while, but nothing had changed.


A delicate face like a wax doll, a calm expression, graceful manners.


Senir also saw Diana.
When he saw her, he blinked his golden eyes exactly twice, then headed towards Grandmother.


“Greetings to the Count.”


“Yeah, it’s been a while.”


Then he bowed his head slightly toward her again.


“Turns out, the Young Miss was also here.”


Diana hesitated, also bending her head reflexively.


‘Did he call me Young Miss just now?’


Senir, who looked back at Grandmother again, calmly said.


“I did not know that you would be with the Young Miss because you were in the office.
I will organize what I have done and report it right away.”




“Then I will get going.”


She just blinked at the situation that was over in an instant.


It had been so long since they met, but he only greeted like this then parted? She didn’t know when Senir would return if he left the mansion again.
Seeing Senir heading back to the door, Diana hurriedly said.


“Excuse me—!”


At her shout, Senir and Grandmother looked back at Diana.




But what should I say? Don’t just go? Go after we talk a little bit more? Won’t I look like an insistent person? But…


Waiting, Grandmother asked.


“Diana? What’s the matter?”


“Uhm, how about drinking tea together?”


Grandmother looked back at Senir and said to the butler who was still at the door.


“Prepare the place.”


“Yes, understood.”


It was tea time that she thought would simply end with a teacup.
Because until now, it had only been simply drinking tea in Grandmother’s office or on the terrace attached to the office.


But somehow, it became a full-fledged tea party, setting up seats in the garden.
Senir and Diana went down first while the butler was preparing for the place.
Grandmother said she would follow after finishing her work.


“It’s the first time since that day.”


Unlike Diana, who couldn’t open her mouth easily, Senir remained unchanged.


“How have you been during that time?”


“Everyone was so nice to me, so I’ve been doing well.
How about Senir?”


“There was nothing different from usual.
Except that I didn’t have time to come back home due to a lot of work.”


The soft, gentle voice and beautiful appearance remained the same.


“Ah, by any chance, do you like pearls?”




At the sudden question, Diana opened her eyes wide.


Among the places I visited, one was famous for pearls.”


Senir smiled.


Even with their leisurely pace, before she knew it, they arrived at the garden.
She could see the place that had been prepared.
Between the brightly bloomed bushes, white tables appeared, with a few checkered ones here and there.


“It’s very pretty here, too.”


Diana was amazed.
It was a place that she used to pass by often, but when it was put down with tables and chairs, it became a good place to relax.
At that time, she heard a rustling sound between the bushes.
