“Do not trouble Duchess of Jaxen anymore.”

Was it the story of not wanting to hold on for a long time and that he would be beaten and stretched out and finished soon? Edmond suppressed his hunger to get rid of the dastardly nobleman in front of him.
He’s an ugly man, but now he’s the grandson of Marquis Spencer, whom she cares about.

Edmond folded his arms and turned away.

“I don’t understand why you’re saying that.”

“The Duchess of Jaxen has never left the castle since her wedding three years ago?”

Edmond, who didn’t expect Daniel to suddenly bring up the Jaxen marriage terms, turned his gaze back at him.
Daniel’s turquoise eyes were watching Edmond.

“I’ve heard about the announcement of the Saxony bride recruitment.”

They can’t meet people, they can’t meet relatives, and they can’t stop by their parents except for serious and important events.

“Not long ago, attending the funeral of her late grandmother was the first outing of the Duchess of Jaxen, and her only sister went on a trip around the world shortly thereafter.”

The former was true, but the latter was Ezet’s lie.
As the two unrelated stories were mixed, a strange conclusion came out.

Daniel’s eyes grew sharp.

“Didn’t you set it all up?”


“The Duchess of Jaxen, who has lost her family to attach to, has no choice but to rely on you.
No matter how difficult you are, the Duchess will not be able to refuse and will have to follow.”

“That’s ridiculous.
Is it the Spencer family tradition to frame people by making assumptions at will?”

“Are you saying it’s not true that you block the Duchess from going out or interacting with others?”


That is true, but the premise is wrong.

It was one thing that Edmond was obsessed with and forced Ezet to keep the Jaxen Duchy wealth and power away from his wife’s house.

It was Erit who accepted the terms and signed the contract in the first place, not Ezet.

“It’s unpleasant to judge what it seems like without knowing what’s going on.”

“Just because there’s a situation doesn’t mean anything is acceptable.
You can’t hide your obvious mistakes.”

“This is clearly wrong?”

“Do you know Stockholm syndrome?” {TN- Stockholm syndrome was in English.}

Stockholm syndrome.
A psychological disorder in which hostages are influenced and sympathized with the criminal.
It is a kind of defense mechanism with self-justification to escape from the anxiety of being unable to reject an opponent who threatens him.

It’s also found in wives who are beaten by their husbands or abused children.
When Daniel studied abroad, he went to volunteer work and saw many people suffering from mental illness.

“When I first encountered her at the Grand Theater, she was frightened and hid behind the cupboard when she saw me apologizing for coming to the wrong place.”

“Isn’t that because you jumped in all of a sudden?”

“It’s often the case that people mistake their seats in a big theater.
Don’t you know that a normal person can’t overreact just because they run into someone they don’t know?”

Ezet had an obscene red rope all over her body on that day, and Daniel, who had no idea that she had avoided it because she was shy to be seen by another man, judged that Ezet was scared of strangers because she was petrified and unstable.
