“The moon looks so beautiful, huh ... ” Hearing a voice that felt familiar, the man still wearing his party attire turns his head. Finding someone coming, he immediately greets him. "Mr Alexander eh? That's right. The moonlight is cool. Fatigue after a party is like mud that slowly fades when watered. How about her? Is your lover getting better?” Alexander also positioned his forearms on top of the wall railing to be able to see the view from above, before replying: “I think it's good enough for now. She had slept a few hours ago. I really thank you for giving her the best, Mr. Kinston ... ” Duke Kinston smiled slightly at Alexander for a moment, before looking back at the scene before the two of them. “You are very different compared to the rumors circulating, huh ... ” "Is that rumour?" says Alexander who paused for a moment, staring at the scene below as if he’s tracing the past, before continuing to say: “That's … true, I used to be an acute coward. However, half a year ago,
The party has closed. When the sky is not bright, it's too risky to go home. From the shadows, danger always lurks.Duke Kinston while the inviting party, with the time set for the evening, had naturally prepared everything. He had provided places for guests to stay, in such a magnificent palace, many rooms are empty and always maintained.When the guests—the nobles who are present, begin to be guided by the servants to the room that had been provided, George gives a signal to the servant who would lead him to his room to wait for him for a while.Seeing Duke Kinston who is making out with Ariana who has just officially become his fiancee, even though it’s not the right time, but still it is the only opportunity, George ventures to greet the two with his partner."Good evening, Mr and Mrs Kinston ..." George who put one hand on his chest slightly bows, of course the George’s partner follows him."Good Evening. You are…” Duke Kinston pauses for a moment, thinking that he feels familiar
In a room that smells good, has a wider area than an ordinary person's house, with beautiful designs in every corner of the room, Duke Kinston's chosen room is really no joke. Alexander feels very grateful to him, because that way, he could rest Azura who he thought is sick with the best service.Now, both of them are no longer in a crowded place, or you can say the opposite of the word crowded.Inside the luxurious room, there are only Alexander and Azura who are still in his lap. The two of them have just entered, while Duke Kinston has left him alone and returned to the party he is having.The party can still be said to be a start. There are several events that will be held, before arriving at the main event of the party, namely the engagement."Hey, actually I'm not sick you know..." Azura says in a low voice, still adjusting to her previous nervousness. She said it after tugging at Alexander's chest to get his attention, before he lays her down on the bed."Don't lie, Azura. I'm
Alexander leads Azura to follow him and accompanied him to play the piano. With a body that is physically larger than Alexander's, Azura who is on his lap should has blocked Alexander from playing the piano.Azura does not expect, she would be in a situation like being under hypnosis. But she knows she isn't actually under hypnosis. She just feels so nervous that she was suddenly allowed to sit on Alexander's lap, while she herself did not get any resistance from her body and instead gave a positive response as if she really wanted it to happen.The audience who are waiting for Alexander's performance, who of course are curious about how the nobleman is able to play the piano which usually only musicians could play well, see how Alexander who treats Azura so sweetly makes everyone's attention more focused to be ready to listen to the game presented by Alexander.Especially the women, many of whom looked enviously at Azura, like they want to take Azura's place and sit there feeling the
One by one the invited guests come. Slowly, the living room in the Duke Kinston Mansion begins to fill with invited guests as the sun has set.Just by watching how the nobles are proud of each other, Azura’s feeling her heart beat so fast. She is so nervous, even though no one is paying attention to her except Alexander."Want to dance?" asks Alexander who suddenly stands up from his chair and extends his hand towards Azura.Having lived for more than half a century, Alexander knows how to deal with situations. In the case what Azura’s facing, he knew how to make Azura less nervous. Only by standing out from the rest will the feeling of nervousness slowly dissipate. And of course, it’ll need a bravery to begin.Azura looks hesitantly at the hand that is being stretched out to her, then she sees Alexander seems to be smiling so sincerely. She wants to refuse the invitation, but her heart pushes her hand to accept Alexander's outstretched hand.With just one gentle pull, Azura is immedi
"Looks like you're pretty sure, huh..."Alexander nods firmly in response to Leville's words."Let him as what he wants, Father. As long as later, he endures all the embarrassment at the party!” said George curtly before he leaves to take his partner into his chariot.Alexander knew very well how nobles thought. The pride is so high, they seem to think that they are special humans. To the extent, most of the nobles consider the common people are just a stepping stone for them to achieve their dreams.Memories of Baron Leville, Alexander has a pretty good impression of him.There are indeed one or two nobles who don't really care about the thought of themselves being considered special or chosen people.'But well, one or two people will definitely have a different mindset...' Alexander smiled a little, before he walks away followed by Azura who is still holding Alexander's hand towards his horse carriage to start the journey to Duke Kinston Residence.The trip will take a long time, ar
In the town square, there are three horse-drawn carriages neatly lined up that catch everyone's attention. There, several people seem to be waiting for something. A man whose face is still warm remembering a week ago visited the Alexander Residence was grumbling incoherently, annoyed that Alexander is late. “That might be Third Brother!” cries a man beside George waving at the carriage they are waiting for. He is Thomas, Alexander's older brother, and George's younger brother. “Tsk! You slug ..." George grumbles, staring intently at the horse-drawn carriage. A middle-aged man standing next to a beautiful woman with a few wrinkles on her face starting to show, Baron Leville, he only glances at George who continues with a long sigh after that. "Be patient, my dear. One day, they will definitely get along…” the woman beside him, Eliza who is the wife of Baron Leville, she held her husband's hand with her head resting on his shoulder before she says so in a voice so soft. Yes, Eliza'
The day that has been awaited, the day where the party according to the schedule stated in the invitation letter has arrived. The day before, a fairly luxurious horse-drawn carriage and its coachman who would take him to the party venue had been dispatched to the Alexander Mansion on behalf of Baron Leville, who is now ready to depart. As for the letter that was mandated to the Charioteer for Alexander, he has brought its contents. At a party to celebrate Duke Kinston's fiancé with the daughter of the Viscount Libourne, Ariana von Libourne, all invited parties are expected to bring their spouses. There, later there will be a dance party, just like how the nobles hold a party. This is not required, but it is better for all invitees who are present to bring someone who will be an escort when the dance begins. Otherwise, Duke Kinston as the host party will feel uncomfortable. What is obtained later, of course, the relationship between the invitees and the one who invites will be a li
