“I’m pregnant… It’s just a malicious rumour that will soon disappear.”
The shocking news spread that Lady Setina Belbourne, an unknown man’s child, had given birth, causing a stir in society. It was the work of her jealous younger sister and stepmother who wanted to take away her fiancé. General Axion Castawyn, the commander-in-chief of the imperial army, proposed to marry Setina, who had been jilted.
“I need a child, but using a real one would be pitiful, so a fictional one would be perfect.”
He is the ruler of people, who with his mere presence, captures people’s attention and even scares away beasts. Axion Castawyn smiled quietly like darkness. Setina decided to marry him for revenge, but the chillingly cold duke seemed strange.
“So from now on, we should be passionate lovers. A couple so in love that a baby could be conceived before we even enter the wedding hall.”
Isn’t it too intimate for a contractual marriage?
“My wife belongs to me. She has always been mine. I have no intention of forgiving those who have insulted my wife.”
Are you more aggressive than me in seeking revenge? Is this really okay?
