Translator: Atlas / Editor: Scarlet
“Of course, I know you care about me.”
Lisbeth spoke slowly.
“Give me a little more time, sister. I like being single… but I will seriously consider marriage.”
“I’m glad to hear your determination.”
“Don’t push it too hard, Rihanna.”
At that moment George interjected.
“Marriage is an important matter, don’t rush into it.”
Rihanna looked at George smiling.
“But we got married in a hurry too.”
“However, we’ve lived happily so far, right?”
“That’s because we’re so much in love.”
“I’m sure that if Lisbeth opens her heart, she’ll soon find someone too.”
“Of course, Lisbeth is a great person.”
“I’m curious about something, George.”
“What is it? You can ask.”
“The dress you said you would give me for our anniversary.”
“When will it arrive? I was planning to wear it to the party tomorrow. That’s a shame.”
Rihanna said, staring at George.
“You still haven’t said anything.”
“Oh, that dress…”
“Will it really arrive? Did the ship have any problems?”
“No, no way.”
George quickly replied.
“Probably… It’ll arrive in a week. So you remembered the dress.”
“Of course, I couldn’t forget the present you’ve prepared for me. It’s the one thing I’ve been waiting for.”
“So I still haven’t decided what dress I’ll wear to tomorrow’s welcome party. It’s an important occasion, so His Majesty might attend.”
“Don’t stress yourself thinking about it, Rihanna. You’ll look beautiful, no matter what you wear.”
“Thank you, George.”
Rihanna smiled looking fondly at George. On the other hand, Lisbeth was looking at the two of them with a cold expression on her face.
“You two seem to be getting along quite well lately.”
Lisbeth was sarcastic when she visited George’s room after dinner. George spoke after sighing.
“I can’t treat Rihanna coldly. If I do, we’ll soon be found out. I’ve had to pretend all this time, we can’t ruin everything.”
“You’re doing fine, what’s wrong with you?”
“I don’t know.”
“Are you upset?”
George hugged Lisbeth, smiling slightly.
“How can I be content?”
Gently rubbing his lips on Lisbeth’s neck, George tried to appease her mood. Suddenly, he changed the topic of conversation.
“…Why does Rihanna suddenly want you to get married?”
“For four years, she didn’t mention anything about it, but strangely these days she hasn’t stopped mentioning it.”
“My sister’s behavior is sudden, but it’s not strange. Because I’ve been in this mansion for a long time.”
Lisbeth said as if it was something insignificant.
“You know, it’s not usual for a sister to stay in her married sister’s home.”
George kissed her gently on the cheek.
“If I had known this would happen, I would have fallen in love with you sooner.”
“There’s no point in regretting the past. We just have to hold on a little longer.”
Lisbeth kissed George softly. She whispered with sparkling eyes after pulling her lips away.
“I’ll advance the plans.”
“Is that possible?”
“Anyway, it will be soon. I don’t think they’ll be suspicious because it’s a bit quicker.”
Lisbeth mischievously lifted the corners of her lips.
“A little more patience. Then, we can be together for a lifetime.”
At the same time in Rihanna’s room.
“I never thought Lady Lisbeth would say she had broken off their relationship.”
“She’s smart. I would have said the same thing too.”
Rihanna said, looking casually at the calendar on her desk.
“Because that way she could put off starting a new relationship by using her broken heart as an excuse.”
“If I had known she would say that, I would have written another letter today.”
“Really, the safest thing to do was to do it once. It’s never good to have a long tail.”
“You’re right. There’s no need to make the situation worse.”
“Just by scaring her, we achieved the desired goal.”
“But what will you do if they find out?”
“…There’s nothing I can do about it.”
Rihanna replied with a carefree expression.
“But in that case, I don’t think any of them can hold back.”
“So, do you plan to keep watching?”
“No, I have to do something.”
Rihanna smiled as she told Margaret.
“I have a plan in mind.”
