A Fallacious Bride (1)
Mirial was a beautiful woman on the outside, but on the inside, she was brash and unrefined.
She told Shepherd that I would stay with him only if I left the mansion.
“What do you mean? Are you chasing me out!?”
“Calm down, Mother!”
“Oh my? What are you implying?”
And yet, this woman asked with a dazed look on her face.
“Even if you are my Mother-in-law, it’s impossible for me to live with you after marriage. And vice versa.”
“What did you say?”
“I can understand if it’s a live-in son-in-law. However, it’s strange for the mother-in-law to live with her married son and daughter-in-law. It’s another thing for commoners with no money to spare, though.”
This woman is so rude despite that innocent face of hers.
“I heard that Shepherd is already heir to the title of Viscount. He also told me that he has been providing ample support to his parents… and he has also offered to take care of my parents in the future as well.”
“He said he’s concerned about my family, and that he will invite my parents over.”
“No, that’s not what I said. In case of emergency, we will take your Elder sister’s place…”
“I am truly relieved. I am so relieved that you are willing to let me take care of my parents.”
What is going on here?
She wants her parents to live in this house instead of living with me?
“I meant that we would eventually move into your parents’ place and live with them.”
“Oh no, Shepherd.”
“Isn’t that right?”
I thought she realized Shepherd’s misunderstanding, but then she said the most ridiculous thing.
“My parents’ house belongs to my little sister, and it’s natural for everyone but the heir to be independent. But since you are the heir to a Viscount, we will have no need to worry about money, so I refused anything but the minimum dowry from my parents.”
“Wha… what did you say just now!?”
“I yielded my privileges to a land to my little sister, and persuaded my parents for a minimum dowry… it’s not easy to take over a territory, isn’t it?”
Oh my God!
If we could get the Count’s daughter as a bride, we would be a part of the Count’s family, that’s what we thought.
We thought that we would be able to get the title of a Count at the drop of a hat, but all we have is a small dowry?
Moreover, taking care of her parents?
“Shepherd, what have you done?”
Who would have thought it would come to this?
The only reason Shepherd said he would take care of this woman’s parents was because he was going to be a Count in the future.
“I didn’t want to cause any financial trouble for my parents if possible, so I’m really glad it worked out.”
This is not good at all!
