Chapter 8

“I see . So, did lady Olivia said she wanted to see the Archduke’s garden? ”


“With that chain of events, it’s obvious that I will allow them . After severely punishing the person responsible, I’ll have to deliver a proper apology…… Well then, I’ll have to properly show them around . ”



Alfredo, the head Steward of the Archduke would be the perfect guide, since he could perfectly fulfill that role and above all else, it wouldn’t be rude considering his standing .

And so, the Archduke decided on putting Alfredo as their guide .



“No, it wasn’t her…… it was the eldest son of the Roundhart family…… Ain-sama was the one who asked . ”


“Ho? ”



The Archduke became a little interested, he wanted to ask the eldest son what he thought about the second son stealing his place .



“Ain-sama said this:


『This wonderful garden of the Archduke has piqued my interest . I was wondering if I might be allowed see it instead of joining the party… would that be alright? 』




“Hahaha! I see . ”


“That eldest son doesn’t lose in terms of being a noble…… not, even as a human being . ”


“I bet, Alfredo . ”



Was it irresponsibility? Or even if that wasn’t the case, to stand up the host of the party, the Archduke while making such a request .

Speaking of position, the Archduke liked to speak in a way that did not make the other party uncomfortable .



“But, should I repeat what he said next……? Was it because he excelled in human subtleties? Or maybe he’s just a natural born lady-killer?”


“Continue . ”


“He went on to say:


『There are so many flowers as beautiful as you, Mother, I’m sorry for wanting to see them instead of attending the important party . I’d be happy if you’re not disappointed for having such child . 』


When I heard this, I couldn’t hide my surprise at the extent of Ain-sama’s competence . ”



“Kuhaha…… A lady-killer, huh? Nicely said . ”


“Archduke? I think I should be the one guiding such a gentleman . ”


“You’re right, Alfredo . ”


“A-Alfredo-sama will be their guide? ! ”


“That’s just the courtesy, well then, Alfredo, show them the garden . ”


“Grandfather? ”



For the Archduke, that was a voice he could recognize no matter where he was .

With her beautiful light-blue long hair fluttering, the Archduke’s granddaughter, Krone approached .



She was giving greetings in place of the host of the party, the Archduke .



“I couldn’t help but to overhear that interesting story . ”


“So, you heard, Krone?”


“Yeah . Alfredo? ”


“Yes, what can I do for you, young lady?”



Krone asked, without indication that she was considering anything she was doing as wrong .

“I’ll guide him and Olivia-sama . That’s fine, right? ”


“Y-Young lady……”


“Krone, so you want to be their guide? ”



The Archduke couldn’t hide his surprise at the situation that he didn’t expect .

After all, this was that granddaughter that wasn’t remotely interested in others . However, the Archduke then recalled that Krone had a yearn for Olivia .



“You want to speak with Olivia-dono that much?”


“Yes . There is no problem with that, right? ”



Krone firmly persisted .

And here, once again, the Archduke’s weakness, his doting of his granddaughter became apparent, therefore her efforts were not in vain .



“Hey, you there? ”


“Y-Yes! ”



Krone asked the knight who served as a receptionist, the one who came to report about Ain .



“I’m sorry to keep you waiting this long . Hurry up and tell Olivia-sama that permission has been granted .

They’ll be allowed to enter the garden, but with a guide . Come on, go . ”



Alfredo and the Archduke looked at the pale-looking knight .

Since the Archduke had a subtle change of already having given up, without really changing his expression, Alfredo didn’t say anything else .

“E-Excuse me then, I’ll convey the message! ”


“Hurry up . ”


“This is not something one from the host house should do . ”


“From the start I didn’t like this, every single time I go to a party it’s just “how beautiful” or “What a gorgeous hair”…… I feel like they only think of me as a harlot or something . I can’t help but to feel sick . ”


“Well, I understand your feelings Krone, but still…”


“……Our home was the reason for the rudeness towards Olivia-sama, so it’s only natural that we take responsibility and correct it . However, in spite of this, a servant was the one who was going to be showing them the garden . Isn’t that an action that would bring us more shame? ”


“Hahahaha, Archduke…… Krone-sama seems to be getting stronger by the day . ”



The Archduke turned towards Alfredo, making a bitter face at his words, while thinking that he has no choice but to hold his head since that was a fact that couldn’t really be denied .



“Don’t say that, Alfredo, I know…… Just don’t get hurt, Krone . ”


“Yes, obviously, thank you grandfather . I love you . ”



Upon hearing those words, the face of the Archduke relaxed .

In his heart, he couldn’t care less about what was going on…… or at least he thought that .



“……Archduke? ”


“What is it, Alfredo……?”


“No, Master? ”


“S-Sorry! But please understand . ”


“I know what master thinks, but I think it should be fine . This isn’t something that unfair that would steal away your fun in your old age . ”

“Geez . I’m just happy to be surrounded by talented people . ”



He felt happy to see the figure of Krone skipping while going to see Olivia-dono and her son to apologize to them .

Therefore, the Archduke was convinced .

He worried about her granddaughter, but he didn’t want to stop her .







In the evening, after the party was over, his granddaughter showed him the Star Crystal, making the whole family feel surprised .

And when he saw Krone, with the face of a woman in love, muttering 『Ain…』, the Archduke became filled with an indescribable emotion .



However, the story doesn’t end there…… While sitting next to Krone, who had a loose face, an emergency message arrives .



“I’m sorry for my impoliteness, but it’s an emergency! The first wife of the Roundhart house, Olivia-sama…… it seems she has requested for separation from Logas-sama! And apparently, she has returned to her parent’s house without waiting for an answer! ”



Alfredo thought at the time that the circumstances surrounding the Roundhart family will become stormy…… and the Archduke knew that as well .

But the bigger shock will probably happen at their Archduke’s house .



Because they had the beautiful lady Krone, assertive and intelligent, who had fallen in love for the first time…… So, she probably would do something .

That alone worried him the most .



“……Grandfather? But isn’t Ain from this country……? Where would Ain and Olivia-sama go?! ! ”



He was convinced that pretty soon, things would get bigger .

And with lady Krone too, after all, the country of Olivia’s parents is……
