However, Charlotte’s luncheon with Nora couldn’t be canceled out of consideration that the latter was a distinguished guest in Rosa.
No matter how unpleasant their courtroom brawl was, there was still a need to observe basic noble etiquette, especially given that Nora was a national guest who had come to offer her blessings. Rosa must now play its part as a proper host.
As a result, Charlotte had no choice but to scrunch up her nose and share apleasantmeal with Nora. Even if her heart wished fervently for the other party to disappear from the face of the world—the same went for Nora too—she still had to maintain a courteous and respectful front.
With hypocritical smiles on their faces, the two of them began digging into their food. The lunch was still relatively peaceful up to this point. Both sides had intentionally restrained themselves to avoid souring the atmosphere, though some snarky remarks couldn’t be avoided.

I realized right away it’s a perfect fit for our Rosaians, sweet like a fated love, and I’d decided to promote this product as a key aspect in our partnership. I’ll be pushing it out using my connections in our upcoming summer catalog.”
“Pardon me, Miss Charlotte, butwhat in the world are you talking about? It disturbs me to see your obsession with delusions.”
Knowing that Charlotte was trying to flaunt her love, Nora burst into laughter.
