Before entering the Ascart House, the time that Alicia had with her loved ones had always been limited. Her father, Larthe, due to his duties in the Knight Order, was rarely home, so spending long dull days with the servants was her norm.
But those days were broken the day her father suddenly left her.
She was adopted by the man her father died protecting, Marquess Carter.

The young Alicia knew very little about the affairs between men and women and didn’t quite understand what the notion signified, but she was aware of the lack of offspring in the Ascart House. She deemed it her responsibility to the house to bear children for Roel and raise them up.

If she could continue staying by his side and enjoy such bliss, she felt that such a trade-off was completely acceptable. After having a taste of the sweet poison known as happiness and affection, she couldn’t bear the thought of returning back to her old days of pain and loneliness anymore.
That was why she had resolved to devote herself to R
