“Marietta, your marriage has been decided . ”

“……Marriage?” Summoned by her father, the king of Stellaus, Marietta steeled herself for whatever bad news might come after seeing his grave countenance . However, upon hearing the subject was her marriage, she couldn’t help but be confused . Wasn’t marriage…a good thing?

Her father was always going on about how he’d find a wonderful husband for his third daughter, Marietta . As the youngest princess, she was always fawned over by her elder brothers and sisters, as well as her parents . In such an environment, most princesses would grow up selfish and spoiled, but thankfully Marietta was a gentle girl; all the love she received turned her into a charming young lady .

She was also already 18 . It wouldn’t have been odd for her to have a fiance at that age, so getting betrothed now should be a matter of course .

“Oh, that’s so wonderful, thank you father! So, tell me, who is it?” Marietta held her hands in front of her chest, waiting excitedly for her father’s reply . Standing that way, the fair, blond-haired, blue-eyed Marietta looked like an adorable doll .  He must be royalty . How old is he? What color is his hair? What colored eyes would hold me in their visage? “Oh, do you happen to have a portrait of him?”


“Indeed……we do have a portrait . However, he is not of royal blood……” Marietta’s eyes suddenly locked onto her father, and the king of Stellaus continued in a quiet tone . “He is a General . Belvant Fergus, the General of Oltaire, is to be your husband . ”

“A General?”

“That’s right . ”

“Oltaire? The superpower Oltaire? ……Did something happen, some urgent military matter, to make you need a relationship with them?”

“…Truly you are a clever girl, Marietta . ” Reflecting in the king’s eyes was his sweet Marietta, whose adorable appearance belied her wisdom and intellect, and his expression became strained . “And you are correct . ”

“Then, could it be that by marrying this General we will be able to avoid some kind of war?”

“How did you know?”

“If we were to form a solid relationship with Oltaire, we would have the power to refuse unreasonable demands from other countries . ”

“But still, how did you arrive at that conclusion?”

“Because, Father, you are always going on about how you’ll find me the perfect prince to live a peaceful life with . But now, you’re suddenly talking of handing me over to a General from the militant superpower Oltaire . If my memory serves me right, Oltaire has no princes of a marriageable age at the moment . ”

“You are right . The only remaining unwed prince is just 4-years old . What’s more, the Oltaire royal family is currently looking to bestow a reward upon their General; such as a princess from an allied country . ”

“And I qualify as such a prize, is what you’re saying . ” Marietta did not mind of course, and nodded her head in understanding . “As a member of the royal family, I am fully prepared to marry for the sake of the country . To be able to do this for my people fills me with happiness . ”

“Oh Marietta, such generosity . ”

“Father, I am already 18 and a proper adult . ” Marietta raised her chin sharply, as if to say ‘look how I’ve matured’…and failed . Her body was both short and slender . Her older sisters were all voluptuous in the chest, but, how would one describe it…it was quite obvious her chest was nigh nonexistent . She had truly believed that one day she would blossom as her sisters did, but at 18 years of age, such a thing had yet to occur .

That’s why, with her body like that, you could describe her with a single word: cute .

“Now then, what kind of person is this General? I would appreciate it if you could tell me . ”

“Yes, you see…”

General Fergus . Before that name typically appeared titles the likes of “He Who Silences Crying Children (out of fear)”, or “Advent of the Fearsome Demon Lord”, and so on and so forth . Born into the lower nobility, with his strength and sharp intellect he quickly rose to the rank of General at the young age of 30 . His glare alone caused small animals to hide, and even the branches of immovable trees would tremble . When he stepped onto the battlefield no enemy would live to tell the tale, and whatever the circumstances, without batting an eyelash, even against the most well-laid plans he could forcibly bring about victory from under his opponent’s feet; he was a warrior, fierce and terrifying as a god .

Thus, the king of Stellaus went to extreme lengths to beat around the bush as long as possible in his explanation to Marietta . “And that, is his portrait . ” The chamberlain came in carrying the portrait under his arm and presented it to the princess .

Depicted in the portrait, his body indeed looked strong, and from his light brown hair to his icey blue stare piercing through Marietta, he did look like a demon…no, like a warrior . There may have been some artistic liberties taken by the painter, but it still exuded a fair amount of intensity . The portrait had revealed a man that could easily crush Marietta’s throat with a single hand .

“He also…appears to be quite tall . ” Seeing Marietta trembling while covering her mouth with both hands made the king of Stellaus’ heart clench . “He could probably easily lift me with one hand . ”

“I-I hear he’s both a strong and good-looking man . Marietta, I believe he’s a man who would protect someone as lovely as you . ”

“Yes……I get that impression . I’m certain he would be my knight in shining armor……” Marietta had become teary-eyed . “It’s decided, Father, I shall go to this man . How soon until I depart for Oltaire?”

“In one week’s time……”

“As you wish . I must hurry and pack my belongings . …May I take this painting with me?” the young girl requested, and the king of Stellaus was no longer able to hold back his tears .

“This is the man who will become my husband……?” Upon returning to her room, Marietta closely examined the painting of her ferociously-faced fiance again . “How……how dreamy he is!” She was so deeply affected that, while teary eyed, Marietta’s face turned bright red as she softly exclaimed to herself .

“Such a strong physique with taut muscles, I’m certain he wields the sword as lightly as a feather . He could easily sweep me off my feet with one arm……eee, I’m so embarrassed!” Daydreaming about her expressionless knight embracing her, Marietta writhed about bashfully by herself .  He’s like an aloof knight from a fairy tale brought to life . Whatever shall I do, my heart will beat out of my chest if I don’t see him soon .

“My Lord Belvant……My Lord Husband……” Marietta’s white fingers caressed the painting, and then she hugged it . “I’m so happy! I can’t wait, simply can’t wait to see him! My dreamy General!”

After all, Princess Marietta was a girl with a muscle fetish .
