A majestic carriage pulled by a Frostwing Horse was swiftly approaching the Ascarts’ manor. Seeing that her destination was finally in sight, Nora Xeclyde heaved a sigh of relief.
It had been more than a week since she received Alicia’s message at the eastern border, and ever since then, she spent almost all her time traveling on this carriage, hardly taking any breaks at all. Her efforts had paid off, and she managed to reach the Ascarts’ manor in the shortest time possible.
Looking at the familiar gateway, she couldn’t help but recall the first time she entered the manor a few years ago. Who could have imagined that she would meet a strange boy here who fully understood and accepted her eccentricities? Ever since then, they had spent much time together, braving numerous dangers and trials under each other’s support. At this point, it could be said that they were necessary to each other’s life.
Alright, fine. I admit that Roel is still having trouble coming to grips with my interests. But, as long as I continue enticing him, it’s only a matter of time before he willingly goes along with me.

Nora flung her hair aside as a haughty smile emerged on her lips. The answer was clear to her.
The experience she shared with Roel was unique. How could Charlotte possibly match up to what they had?
She’s just a pitiful girl who’s clutching onto her engagement contract desperately as her final wall of defense. Once the engagement contract is gone, she won’t be a threat at all.
With everything under control, Nora smiled confidently as she watched as her carriage approached the entrance of the Ascarts’ manor.
It was a familiar building in familiar surroundings. The Ascarts’ servants were extremely diligent in their duties; even when there was still a hundred meters left before the arrival of Nora’s carriage, they had already opened the doors wide to welcome her.
