“I heard you’ve decided to hold your engagement ceremony in two years?”


Filina said with a gasp.
Cecilia looked at her strangely. 


His Highness also told me that he wanted to delay the engagement ceremony.
But why are you so surprised?”


“No, I’m not.”


Filina deliberately hid her confused expression and took a mouthful of fruit juice from the table. 


At last she left Ian and went to the Count’s residence with Cecilia.


She wanted to go home, but she couldn’t pretend not to know Cecilia, who was staring at her with an expectant face.


Cecilia asked the maid to make different kinds of teas and drinks for Filina.


The table was full of delicious cookies and sweet cakes.


But she didn’t have time to care about them.


According to the original content, Ian had to tell her that he would set the engagement ceremony for next spring.
Cecilia should have rejected the offer.


The small conflict between the main characters serves as a stepping stone for further advancing their relationship.


Several episodes arise as Cecilia unilaterally avoided Ian to postpone the engagement ceremony.


Due to the emotions that bloomed during this time, Ian decided to do Cecilia a favor and spent two years listening to the Emperor’s grudge.


But, why did he just skip that whole process?


Then what happened to the emotions of the main characters born out of the conflict?


Filina couldn’t hide her perplexed expression.
She didn’t expect the original story would be shortened like this.


“I’m sorry, Miss.
Is there something uncomfortable?”


Cecilia asked cautiously, looking at Filina’s pale face.
Finally, Filina cleared the confusion from her mind and smiled wryly.


“No, I was just surprised that the engagement ceremony will take place later than expected.”


“Oh, I see.
To tell you the truth, I still don’t really feel like I’m getting engaged.
It’s kind of awkward… and I’m rather relieved that he gave me two years.”


Filina nodded closely at what she said.
Then Cecilia immediately spoke in a more cheerful voice.



 “Of course, I’m very grateful that your Highness proposed to a humble person like me!”


Filina opened her mouth with a little smile.


“No matter how humble you are, don’t lower yourself too much.
Miss Cecilia.”


“But I don’t stand out in any particular way like the others, and I’m a person who falls too short for someone as amazing as His Highness.”


Filina’s brow furrowed at Cecilia’s faint dejection. 


I don’t think so.”


Cecilia looked up at her words.
Filina smiled quietly and spoke.


“His Highness is a man who knows all about practicality.
Why did such an amazing person choose Cecilia over the other ladies? He must have even sent you a proposal because you have that much of a sufficient quality.”


Her quiet voice echoed widely in the waiting room.
Cecilia looked at Filina with dazed eyes.
When her gaze did not fall for a while, Filina called out to her with a strange face. 


“Miss Cecilia? What’s wrong?”


Finally, the eyes that reminded her of clear blades of grass slowly shifted to the side.
Cecilia stared into the air, catching her breath for a moment.


“It’s just that…I’ve never heard those words before…” 


Cecilia bit her lips quietly as she spoke.


Cecilia couldn’t control her emotions.
Filina could only watch silently as she did so.


Cecilia’s family was strict.


She grew up with more criticism and control than praise from her family, and the environment around her was not very nice.


In addition, her title as a saint made her feel distant from the aristocratic society, and she even received a proposal from the Crown Prince, which made people jealous of her.


If Filina had played the role of a villain as in the original story, Cecilia would not have been able to bear it.


In reality, it would have been.


But this was a world in a novel, a world completely different from reality.


The female protagonist, who never lost her laughter even in the midst of hard adversity, would meet and fall in love with a wonderful male protagonist who would accept her for the first time.


The story would end with a happy ending.


That’s how it would have ended in a normal picture.


If only this novel hadn’t been labeled R-rated.


“…… Lady Filina is a really nice person.”


Cecilia smiled and raised her head.


The blue-green eyes were filled with transparent tears, but the corners of her forced lips were smiling like a habit.


It was a pity that she had to keep smiling, as if it was her own virtue.


 “There’s a visitor for you, young lady.”


At that moment, a maid came into the parlor, approached Cecilia, and told Cecilia quietly.


She quickly wiped away her tears and looked at Filina.


“Lady Filina, if you don’t mind, may I welcome a Lady here?”


Cecilia asked with a smile so bright that Filina couldn’t refuse. 


“Of course.”


Once the permission was granted, Cecilia spoke to the maid with a bright smile. 


“Please bring her here.
I’m sure the Lady will be pleased.”


Seeing her buoyant face helped Filina to put down the heavy feeling she had.
However, the mood did not last long. 


It was an awkward moment when shw was so immersed in Cecilia’s emotions alone that she failed to recognize the identity of the Lady she mentioned.
