I glanced around angrily, wondering if anyone had heard what Richard had said.

“You have a pretty frown too.”

Like I said or not, Richard was good at talking nonsense.

“… Are you crazy? Why are you here?”

“I need to talk to you for a minute, Countess Millard will be out and will be a little late.”

“… Okay.”

I had planned to avoid Richard as much as possible but in case he did something crazy like say my name out loud here, I did as he asked.

“The Countess has a beautiful garden, so let’s take a look around.”

Are you the owner of this mansion?

I was stunned by his brazenness.

Richard introduced me to the Countess’s people as an acquaintance. Then he naturally led me to my seat.

“How the hell did you know that I was Rosie?”

After confirming that we were the only ones in the garden.

“Because it looked like you.”

What kind of rude answer is that?

I grumbled to myself, but I suddenly remembered the time when I left the cafe a while ago.

“I wasn’t mistaken when you called out my name near the cafe before?”

Instead of answering, he smiled softly.

Damn it. It means he already knew from then on.

“How the hell did you recognize me?”

“There’s no way I can’t recognize you.”

What other logic is that?

I wondered if he could smell my scent and was fooling me.

“Why did you ask me to talk to you? Do you have something to tell me?”

“I heard that the Marquis Evantes was looking for a savior.”

I quickly turned my head to look at Richard.

How the hell did he know that?

I wanted to ask him right away, but I couldn’t open my mouth easily, fearing that he would know it.

“Strangely enough, that’s from the moment Marquis Evantes took you away, so I have something I’d like to ask you as well.”

“… What is it?”

“Are you looking for a savior?”

“……”

“If not, you should have answered right away, but seeing you say nothing, I think it’s not wrong.”

“……”

“Of course, which is why you approached the Countess of Millard.”

I couldn’t help but be astonished when the words that seemed to understand my situation were flowing.

“How the hell do you know all that?”

“That’s not important, Rosie.”

Richard smiled softly and grabbed my hand.

His cold hand slipped between my fingers and held me close.

“What matters is that I can help you.”

“… You help me?”

“I can help you find a savior. Though I don’t know why you would want that.”

I looked at Richard as if possessed.

“How can you get me to meet the Savior?”

“It’s no fun if I tell you.”

“Is there anything you want from me?”

I weighed Argen and Richard in my head.

Although I was tied to a contractual relationship with Argen, it was not difficult to abandon that relationship if the person who would be more helpful to me at this moment was Richard.

After all, it’s not because they’re intertwined because of each other’s interests.

“Stop living as Marquis Evantes’ mistress and come to me. That is my condition.”

“…….”

I frowned at the unfulfilled condition.

“Why do you keep making conditions that don’t give anything in return?”

I didn’t understand it at all.

No, I actually thought I knew.

“I don’t know, I just feel like I can’t be without you.”

… That sounds like you’re in love with me.

Richard smiled softly and tucked a strand of my hair behind my ear.

“You look good in blonde.”

That’s how the conversation with Richard ended.

*****

Shortly after the conversation with Richard, the news came that the Countess had arrived.

I was guided by the maid and headed to her place.

The handmaiden took me to a remote place I didn’t even know existed in the Countess mansion.

It was a small mansion that seemed to be about five stories high.

The Countess was in a room on the top of the fifth floor. The moonlight softly permeated over the terrace.

“I’m sorry, lady. I was late for some reason.”

“I haven’t been waiting for a long time, madam.”

It was early evening when I arrived here, but the sun was already setting.

“My magic works better here.”

“I see.”

“Then shall we start right away? I need to take a look, so please sit back and relax, lady.”

I nodded at the Countess’ words.

It’s magic, I realize, and I’m the one who asked for help in the first place, but it hardly feels real.

Even as I obeyed, I wondered if this was really working.

The Countess came close to me to look at me, and suddenly her complexion darkened sharply.

“… Also.”

Her muttering is eerie.

“Actually, I felt it from the moment I first met lady, but there is something I didn’t tell you because I was afraid it was a mistake.”

The Countess continued with a serious face.

“I feel the energy similar to magic. Maybe lady didn’t lose her memory, but maybe you are just under a spell and can’t recall them.”

“… Is that true, and does that make it impossible to find the memories?

“That’s not true, the spell can be broken, I’ll give it a try.”

Countess Millard smiled sweetly and patted my back.

Whispering and patting me saying not to worry, saying it will be fine, at this moment, was as warm as the most reliable ally in the world.

“Come on, lady, lie down and close your eyes.”

I followed her instructions.

The Countess gently stroked my hair.
“You may feel sleepy. If you do, you can sleep.”

“… Okay.”

As soon as she said it, the bags under my eyes languidly relaxed.

I even feel a little sleepy…

As she said, I fell asleep.

*****

I had a dream.

In the dream, a girl with pink hair stood.

“They insulted you, sister.”

“…….”

“They said that you have a low origin, and they said terrible things about what they would do to you.”

Even the girl knows that.

Nobles talk about her origins and belittle her, and in doing so, they look down on her like she’s nothing.

Even so…

‘What are you, pulling out their tongue?’

What did they do to deserve to have their tongue pulled out?

I was disgusted by the lack of mercy.

‘What did I expect?’

Part of me wishes I hadn’t spent so much time with Yurtha.

The girl is not originally from this place. I was an ordinary Korean who suddenly fell into a novel one day.

That’s why she already knows what a terrible thing Yurtha does.

A sub-maniac who has gone truly insane.
That is the role he played in this novel.

‘I thought it would be different when he was younger.’

The boy who followed me around was pretty cute.

That’s why I let it bother me even if I wander around quietly, but I didn’t know that he had such a terrible side since childhood.

‘It’s disgusting.’

The smart Yurtha was not so foolish as to not notice the gaze.

“Why are you looking at me like that?”

“You must be mistaken.”

She ignored Yurtha and immediately turned her back.

“Sister!”

“Don’t follow me!”

I was just thinking about getting out of this situation.

Her steps, which were getting faster and faster, quickly made her run.

Rose ran.

To where her mother is waiting.

“Mom!”

A beautiful woman smiling brightly with a flower she had received from the gardener looked back.

Pink hair fluttered in the wind.

“What’s going on, Rose?”

*****

“Ugh!”

I woke up from my dream.

What is this dream?
Rose’s memory is clear. I haven’t seen it since I left Marquis Evantes…

Is it because of Countess Millard?

I got up and looked into the dark room.

“Madam?”

I’m sure we were together until I fell asleep, but where did she go?

Then a black shadow approached from behind.

“I didn’t go, lady I’m here.”

A gloomy voice echoed in my ears. I got goosebumps.

Obviously the voice was the same. But before I fell asleep, it was a completely different atmosphere from the woman who exhorted me with a friendly voice.

And that moment.

“Ugh!”

Strong grips stretched out from behind and wrapped around my neck as if choking me.

“Die!”

A voice filled with madness pierced my heart.

I was choked and gasped. As I clawed at the back of her hand to escape, the Countess shouted.

“How dare a demon worshiper sneak into aristocratic society!”
