Fake wife - Chapter 7
“Are you going to keep everything a secret from the other vassals as well?”
“Isn’t there a saying that if you want to fool your enemies, you have to fool your allies first?”
I nodded again in agreement. There are no perfect secrets in this world. Anyone loyal to Pascal never knows when or how to strike him in the back. Or, even if you don’t have that intention, you can always make a small slip of the tongue.
“Well, by the way, the clause that says that each other should be faithful to their married life seems a bit ambiguous.”
“It’s too vague.”
“That part is me too, I’ve never been married, I don’t have it.”
He lost his parents when he was very young and was raised by his nanny. Do you have any idea what a proper married life is? There was a rare look of embarrassment on his face. Thinking that face was strange, I quietly agreed.
“I have been thinking about something. However, I couldn’t think of anything other than trivial and detailed ones, so I wrote them down comprehensively.”
“It’s trivial and detailed…”
“What, like calling each other nicknames or having tea time every day?”
“Well, it’s too trivial to document. By the way, will you have tea with me every day?”
“Do you like it?”
“It’s not that I don’t like it, it’s because I’m busy.”
His blue eyes twinkled. He shrugged his shoulders and opened his mouth in a somewhat reproachful tone. “No matter how busy they are, newlyweds who are full of love should have that much time.”
The settings are like that, but I can’t do it. Time is a gold coin, and the Archduke of Valencia is sure to pose a serious threat to his new bride, Theodore, who spends his free time. Well, the lord must have an idea. “It’s natural that they don’t have mistresses, um? Can we use one room?”
“Of course. We are newlyweds who are full of love.”
On the contrary, he replied as if I was abnormal. Well, it’s supposed to look good, but it’s strange that newlyweds use separate rooms. I didn’t think so much of it. While it is fully expected that the bedroom of the newlyweds in the grand ducal residence will be of a certain size, the bed will also be terribly large. If the above was ambiguous, what puzzled me was the cost of this contract. Of course, it was expected that becoming the Grand Duchess would not end with a decent reward, as there would be a lot of work to do and a lot of risk. Wouldn’t that be the case for the heir to the grand duke’s family?
However, this…was more than expected
“In addition to 20% of the stake in the top of the Grand Duchess, the diamond mine and even the command of the Knights. This is too much.”
“If the command of the knights is burdensome, think of it for your own safety, since dangerous situations can arise. You can think of having a share in the upper ranks as a duty and right as a grand duchess. After all, isn’t there only one mine?”
Pascal’s face, as he spoke with raised eyebrows, showed stubbornness that he would not listen to any objections. If you say you give me a lot, I’m grateful. I looked at the contract again with a puzzled face. To say that there was only one mine, there were overflowing rewards that could not be ignored
It was written that the stake at the top was not just a simple stake, but also guaranteed personal rights and business rights, and that the results would be entirely mine. Shouldn’t you think about it even after the contract is over and you get divorced? Isn’t it an excessive right to give to a retainer? Moreover, they say that the mine still has a residual value of 50 years. Even the maintenance fee paid every month and the alimony after the contract ended were more than I expected, but compared to mine, it was worth a penny. The simple wish of receiving a lot of money came back with an unrealistic reward, so it was definitely not a loss to me. But something was off. I was aware that my role as the Grand Duchess was really important.
