<The Countess of Brierton is invited to Kaldorov!>
There was a detailed explanation under the headlines.
<The news is that Countess Brierton, who recently successfully completed the exchange exhibition, is going to Kaldorov.
Kaldorov, who appreciated the Countess’s artistic achievements, sent a formal request, saying they wanted to take charge of the Countess’ individual exhibition.
The invitation was made by the Marquis of Attlee, a prestigious family in Kaldorov, and the Kalodorov royal family officially welcomes…….>
Charlotte’s eyes sank cold.
Ines was smiling brightly in the newspaper.
Like the young lady when Charlotte first met Ines, it was really bright.
All the dirty behinds and emotions in the world, even this desperate inferiority complex that bites Charlotte’s whole body.
One had no idea.
With a noble appearance on her face alone, as if she were laughing at Charlotte…….
“I can’t be the only one rolling around in the mud like this.”
A voice mixed with iron came out.
“I’m the only one who’s suffering… Do you think I’m going to be in a terrible state alone?”
“You are the only one who shines in the spotlight.”
Ryan, who relentlessly abandoned her, saying he would hold onto Ines.
“Isn’t it fair to make a mess of everyone?”
Charlotte said to herself, her eyes twinkling.
The newspaper clenched in her hand was crumpled.
A whisper filled with malice sank low the dark room.
A few days later.
Ines was standing in front of a carriage to Kaldorov, receiving Mary’s farewell.
“The Lady has a weak stomach, so be careful of food and cold water. I have some medicine for motion sickness in the bag, so don’t forget to take it. And also….”
Mary looked much more nervous than Ines.
Ines, who could not hear the worries flowing out one after another, opened her mouth soothingly.
“I’m not going to die, it’s okay.”
Then Mary opened her eyes wide.
“What’s okay? When you were young, you always had a stomach ache when the water changed. I’m really worried about you….”
Mary, who had been talking about many things, started crying.
“Okay. Make sure to take medicine for motion sickness, and be careful of cold water and food.”
Ines, surprised, replied hastily.
Mary continued, sobbing.
“I really, if I could, I would come with you…”
“It’s okay, Kaldorov said they would take good care of me.”
“My Lady always drinks hot tea every morning. Who’s going to take care of the tea for you since you’ll be away from Lancaster for a month?”
Mary cried and asked.
“No, you don’t have to worry so much about just hot tea.”
Ines gulped down the emotion that came up to the end of her throat.
After a few moments.
Mary wiped her eyes and smiled brightly.
“But I’m glad.”
“You’ve finally been recognized.”
And Ines easily noticed the hidden meaning between the lines of Mary’s words.
The fact that Ines was recognized.
It meant that she got away from the grips of Ryan and regained her life.
There was a slow smile on Ines’s face.
It was a smile as bright as Mary’s.
“Take care and come back safely.”
Mary, who was saying goodbye, was startled.
It was because Ines stretched out her arms and hugged Mary tightly.
“Yes, I’ll be back, Mary.”
“Take care of your health and have a great time, okay?”
A friendly touch patted Ines on the back.
A young lady who lost her parents and was pushed like a ball.
The fragile woman, who couldn’t even breathe properly under Ryan’s shadow, shook off her ex-husband’s shadow before she knew it.
The fact that she could smile with such a light face…….
It may be somewhat rude to have this thought about her master.
“I’m so proud of you.”
‘Is this how it feels to look at a daughter who has grown up and is independent?’
Mary felt her heart beat fast.
So she said goodbye to the employees of the mansion.
At last Ines got into the carriage.
Enoch, who was waiting in the carriage, spoke to Ines.
“Mary worries a lot about the Countess.”
“Yes, Mary has been by my side since I was young.”
Ines opened her mouth inadvertently, waving lightly to Mary outside the window.
“I didn’t know much about it before, but I think there are a lot of good people around me.”
“Yes, including the Duke.”
With that unexpected word, Enoch felt somehow speechless.
Ines didn’t know.
How Enoch shook with every little thing she did, every light word she said.
“……Let’s go now.”
Ignorant of Enoch’s complicated heart, Ines was lighthearted.
The carriage ran briskly.
After a long journey, Ines and Enoch finally arrived at Kaldorov.
“Wow, it’s amazing.”
Ines looked out the window with her eyes shining.
“It certainly looks different from Lancaster.”
Kaldorov’s unique exotic landscape disturbed Ines’s vision.
The trees on the street were mainly trees with large leaves, and the wind touching her face was also warm.
Enoch, who was looking over the carriage window, answered lightly.
“Kaldorov is located in the south of Lancaster. The weather is also mild because it is connected to the sea.”
“Come to think of it, Kaldorov has quite a good seafood dish. There are also some famous shops in Calips, the royal road.”
At that moment, Ines flinched her shoulders.
‘How does the Duke of Sussex even know such little information?’
As if he had been here once before…….
At the same time, Enoch added as if he had read into Ines’s mind.
“It’s a long time ago, but I’ve tried lobster dishes. It was quite impressive.”
Ines frowned without realizing it.
‘Ines, wake up. What does it matter to you whether or not the duke comes to Kaldorov?’
She tried to calm herself down, but it was all useless.
When she came to her senses, she had already asked Enoch a question in a suspicious voice.
“Have you ever been to Kaldorov before?”
At the same time, Ines, who came to her senses, bit the tip of her tongue gently.
Enoch, who didn’t notice anything, just nodded his head.
“I came here when I was 20 years old. At that time, I visited with His Majesty.”
Dark green eyes narrowed with suspicion.
‘Don’t tell me, were you visiting for a wedding with the Marquess of Attlee?’
Meanwhile, Enoch tilted his head and asked Ines a question, as if he felt the imploring gaze.
“Why are you looking at me like that? Do I have something on my face?”
“No, it’s not like that…….”
Ines swallowed her dry saliva.
Her reason was giving a loud warning, saying, “Don’t do anything useless.”
“Did you meet the Marquess of Attlee at the time, too?”
Sadly, curiosity prevailed.
Enoch couldn’t hide his puzzled expression at the unexpected topic.
“Why suddenly asking about the Marquess of Attlee?”
“I’m just….I’m curious.”
Ines answered in a hurry.
“The person who invited us this time is also Marquessof Attlee, and she…….”
‘Oh, I don’t know.’
Ines, who glanced at Enoch, closed her eyes tightly and continued.
“She seems to be quite familiar with the Duke, not to mention the Queen.”
“Yes. You even knew the name of Marquess Attlee, didn’t you?
“You mean Andrea?”
At the friendly address, Ines felt her insides twisted for no reason.
“Come to think of it, that was the first time I had actually met Andrea. I only heard from her by letters.”
“Yes, and to answer the question of the Countess…….”
Enoch leaned against a soft carriage chair and shrugged his shoulders lightly.
“I’ve been to Kaldorov, and I’ve met the Marquess.”
“Both of you were single at the time?”
Ines’s mind was complicated while Enoch was nonchalant.
Looking at that face, she kept feeling low.
Unconsciously, a sour answer came out.
Ines turned her head sadly.
Enoch asked Ines again with a puzzled face.
“But why do you ask that?”
‘…… It’s not a look of nothing.’
He couldn’t figure out why Ines suddenly felt down.
Enoch became stunned as if he had faced an unanswered mystery.
