I got it right away. 

 

“I don’t know what you’re talking about. What do you mean an information?”

 

I can’t let Callian find out that this is an information guild!

 

Then I’ll lose my card!

 

I can’t do that.

 

I need to pretend not to know unconditionally. No matter what! 

 

“But why are you here?”

 

But Callian, who was not very happy, said as he stared at me intently.

 

“I just came to buy monster meat.”

 

I answered casually.

 

“Right, Joseph?”

 

“What?”

 

Joseph, who was standing in awe, responded to me, saying, “Uhhh.”

 

“That’s right. This madam is here to buy monster meat.”

 

“But!” 

 

Callian shouted. 

 

“Why did you buy monster meat? It’s something you can’t even eat!”

 

That’s true.

 

There was no need for me to buy and eat that sticky and tasteless monster meat. Callian is also pointing out this part.

 

So I answered with a nonchalant expression.

 

“I’m going to give it to Your Highness.”

 

“…What?”

 

“No, the first time I saw it, it seems that Your Highness likes it. So I came to buy it to give it to Your Highness, is there any problem?”

 

“….”

 

Callian opened his mouth and closed it.

 

He looked deep in thought.

 

What’s wrong with him?

 

I tilted my head.

 

Soon after, Callian’s mouth slowly opened.

 

“So you’re still thinking about me.”

 

…What?

 

“It was a lie to say that you liked your husband. Right?

 

I narrowed my forehead.

 

What is this narcissist patient?

 

“No. That’s not a lie—”

 

“As expected, you like me! Haha! Yeah, of course. There’s no way you’ll change your mind that easily!”

 

What does this crazy guy see—.

 

I was so speechless that I opened my mouth wide. But I quickly came to my senses. Let’s be calm. The opponent is crazy. You can’t even get me involved. That’s what I think. 

 

“Anyway, this is not a place for information. I really only buy meat here.”

 

Callian narrowed his eyes.

 

“I don’t believe you.”

 

“Oh, you’re talking as if you once believed me.”

 

“Yeah. I always don’t believe what you say.”

 

Callian said it as if it were really obvious.

 

“I never believe you.” 

 

He crosses his arms and is lost in thought. I don’t believe it. I don’t believe it. He mumbled like that.

 

What does he not believe?

 

I was really puzzled and tilted my head. At this time, Callian lifted his chin with his arms folded.

 

“I will go back today.”

 

Then he looked at Joseph and said.

 

“When I come later, you have to come up with the answer I want.”

 

“No, that’s why this place is just a place that sells monster meat.”

 

“I don’t believe it.”

 

Callian shook his hand and left as it was.

 

Ring.

 

The door opened with a sound, and Callian disappeared just as it was.

 

Why did you come here if you were going to go like that?

 

I was a little dumbfounded and laughed in vain.

 

At this time, Joseph asked.

 

“Who is that person?”

 

I answered back.

 

“His Highness the Crown Prince.”

 

“What?!”

 

Joseph asked in surprise.

 

“T, then shouldn’t we grab him? My precious customer—!”

 

I knew it would come out like this.

 

I shook my head hard.

 

“No!” 

 

“But!” 

 

“As soon as information from this place enters the Crown Prince, I’ll cut off the deal right away.”

 

Joseph’s eyes shook.

 

Perhaps Callian and I are weighing the two of us.

 

I decided I had to put a wedge on it.

 

So I put down the gold coin pocket I brought.

 

“Then you won’t be able to receive twice as much as this money.

 

Joseph’s eyes were wide open. I twisted my lips looking at him.

 

“And in the future, you will never be able to make a deal with Duke Ryzen.”

 

“…”

 

“Are you still okay with that?”

 

Joseph swallowed his dry saliva and wetted his lips.

 

He glanced at the door through which Callian came out and the bag of gold coins I held out, then lifted it up with a look of helplessness.

 

“I think Yujin is really good at threatening.”

 

Aha.

 

That’s a relief.

 

Even though it was like this, I was worried about what to do if he said he would go to Callian.

 

Whoo.

 

I took a breath.

 

“So, what are you curious about today?”

 

Joseph said.

 

I answered with the corners of my mouth rolled up.

 

“Magic circle.”

 

“…Magic circle?”

 

“Yeah.”

 

I nodded my head.

 

“I want all the information about the magic circle that the 2nd Prince has. Come to me by any means possible.”

 

Joseph’s eyes widened.

 

2nd prince.

 

Because it was no different than touching a huge giant.

 

But I did not give Joseph a place to step back.

 

“If you fail.”

 

I blinked my eyes.

 

“I’ll let my husband know about this place.”

 

“Argh, really!”

 

Joseph ruffled his hair and shouted.

 

“Why are you doing that! Leave me alone!”

 

I shrugged my shoulders.

 

“So, shouldn’t you just succeed?”

 

“That’s easy for you to say!”

 

“The deadline is until tomorrow.”

 

I ignored Joseph’s scream and said.

 

“You can do it, right?” 

 

Joseph bit his lip.

 

Then, as if he had no choice, he let out a deep sigh and spread out his two fingers.

 

“Twice.”

 

He continued to speak.

 

“Twice as you promise.”

 

I smiled.

 

“Of course.”

 

Joseph murmured in response to my answer.

 

“Tsk. I thought it was a good deal, but a very nasty Madam came in.”

 

He grumbled so much, but he went inside the store because he had something to do anyway.

 

I left him behind and left the store.

 

Ah, it was a good day.

 

******

 

Tak

 

As soon as the carriage door closed, Callian sat down as if burying himself in a chair and relaxed his body.

 

The reason he came to this place today was because it was strange no matter how much he thought about it.

 

Because the time when Ophelia suddenly said that she knew the information merchant was the same as when she offered him a monster meat

 

Isn’t that where Ophelia uses the information?

 

Judging by this, he tried to find a place that sold monster meat, but he couldn’t find it easily.

 

Meanwhile, Fleur said that it was a pity that she couldn’t buy the monster meat. Callian wanted to find out the location of the store.

 

However, there was no result no matter how many times she came.

 

Meanwhile, he met Ophelia today.

 

The moment he saw Ophelia, Callian was convinced that this place was an information guild.

 

Because she couldn’t come all the way here just to buy monster meat!

 

But—.

 

‘I’m going to give it to Your Highness.’

 

‘No, the first time I saw it, it seems that Your Highness likes it. So I came to buy it to give it to Your Highness, is there any problem?’

 

He can’t believe she said that! 

 

As soon as Callian heard those words, he had to make sure his face didn’t turn red. 

 

He doesn’t think so. 

 

It’s a relief. 

 

“Pft.”

 

Callian laughed unknowingly. 

 

In fact, he had no choice but to do so.

 

Because it’s clear that Ophelia is still thinking of him! 

 

Yeah. 

 

Ophelia can’t abandon him. 

 

I mean, there’s no reason she won’t like him. 

 

Ophelia still likes him. 

 

But she must have said that she liked Sylvester Ryzen for some reason.

 

‘Poor woman.’

 

Callian suddenly thought that it would be good if he could save Ophelia from Sylvester’s beast.

 

This is just sympathy. Other than that, there are no other feelings.

 

‘So—’

 

He thought it wouldn’t be bad to save her from Sylvester.

 

Moreover, there were words from the Emperor.

 

[Make Ophelia McGuffin yours. I’ll help you.]

 

The Emperor made it clear that she was not the Duchess of Ryzen, but the daughter of the Grand Duke McGuffin.

 

It was as if the Emperor didn’t recognize the couple.

 

In other words, even if Callian took Ophelia, it meant that the Emperor would turn a blind eye to it. 

 

‘Yeah—’

 

With this in mind, Callian made the decision to get Ophelia.

 

‘I don’t believe you.’

 

I will never believe it. 

 

Everything she said.

 

‘I like my husband.’

 

He doesn’t believe it. 

 

Never. 

 

******

 

I came back home.

 

“I didn’t do much, but I’m tired.”

 

I guess it was because I met Callian.

 

Anyway, I get annoyed like this when I meet him.

 

We shouldn’t be seeing each other for a while.

 

I thought so and opened the gate.

 

As soon as I did that, I saw Sylvester standing in the middle of it. 

 

Huh? 

 

What happened?

 

He’s not in the office?

 

I tilted my head. 

 

“Honey?”

 

At my call, Sylvester slowly turned his head.

 

“Why are you here?”
