When they looked for a helping hand, they happened to have a bait to eliminate tariffs on the commercial route that my father seemed to want, so they were able to contract in the form of an engagement.

“I… Still…”

I was happy because there was someone who thought my existence was important.

And I felt hope for Albert, who initially respected me.

That is why I cannot forgive him.

It is worse that he ignores me and treats me as if I am not needed than if he flirted with other women.

I don’t want to talk to him anymore.

“I don’t want to get married…”

As I whispered, my consciousness seemed to fade away.

“You’ve always hated Michelia, haven’t you?”

That was the golden-haired young man, Albert, who spoke.

I am being held by soldiers with my arms pinned and seated on the floor of some building.

“I didn’t do that! I just wanted to avoid the war and ran away!”


But the young man standing next to Albert looked down at me with a condescending gaze.

“What are you talking about.
You must have leaked Michelia’s information.
That sacred flowers would bloom in the territory where she originally lived.
That she had magical talent… We relied on that and had a plan to push back the soldiers of the Kingdom of Walden.”

“I don’t know, I don’t know!”

As I shouted, I was suddenly trampled from behind.

“Ahh!”

I stop breathing due to the pain.

At that moment, various memories rampage in my mind.

The shadow of the conflict with the neighboring country becomes denser in my motherland.

In the midst of all this, I was desperate because I had been bullied, and I accepted an offer to study abroad in a neighboring country.

That was for the purpose of delivering a secret letter hidden in my luggage.

I knew that my father was in contact with the neighboring country, but I couldn’t do anything about it now, so I lived as if I was being confined in the neighboring country.

While I was doing that, I learned that the girl whom Albert valued had become able to use special magic and was called the “Maiden of Salvation,” and that the army of the neighboring country had been repulsed.

I told the general of the neighboring country about her.


There was also a reason that I was in their care.
It was because that person was looking after my life in the neighboring country.

But more than anything, the general of the neighboring country sincerely agreed about the treatment that my former fiancé Albert did…

Based on that information, it is said that the general of the neighboring country directed assassins at her.

They seem to think that I, who supposedly harbored resentment towards her, personally sent the assassins.

I don’t have such power.

I was actually trying to tell him how terrible a person Albert is.
I don’t want to be thought of as an aristocratic lady who is interested in a commoner’s mistress, so I only answered when asked about her.

Then someone standing above me, probably trampling on me, said, “There’s no need to confess.
We have all the evidence we need.
Just capture her and take her to the capital as punishment.”

Then, in a kind voice, the person continued, “That way, you can be at ease, Michelia.”

“Please, don’t do anything scary like punishment,” a thin woman’s voice responded.

It’s the unforgettable voice of the outrageous servant who openly stole my fiancé from me.

“In that case, let’s have her imprisoned forever.”

The future that was declared for me doesn’t seem to have improved at all.

“Eek!”

I jumped out of bed again today.
