Why Are You Doing This, Duke! Vol. 1 Part 3 (10)

Part 3: The Spring Breeze in the Mountains (10)

“Oh, after all. There’s no such thing as magic book.”

Erin looked at the library inventory list and looked at all the books with similar titles. The amount was enormous enough to take a whole few weeks.

But the result was a failure. There are books that refer to sorcery and spells, such as the fairy tale book of magic, how to tackle Gilt’s robe, and the stationery book of the eastern continent, etc. There was no direct narrative of ‘magic’. 

‘Is it natural?’

Magic was the age of alchemy, which would be dismissed as a fictional story. Rather, more books were written about the dragon that appeared only in legends.

‘I’m going to go to the other bookstore.’

Erin, who was about to prepare and depart with Mary, happened to meet with the duke who was leading the crowd in the hall on the ground floor.


They greeted her and then stepped back and to make room for them.

“I’m thinking of going out to the market today.”

“Then shall I come with you? “

“No, it’s okay. You’re busy. I’ll be back soon. “

Seeing his eyes shine at her, Erin frowned at him. It was her small wish to date the Duke. But today she was going to go to an antique bookstore in the innermost market of the city outside the castle, but it was too conspicuous when she went with the Duke whose face was known. Lex, who was refuse to go several times, made a regretful expression when she shook her head, but didn’t ask any more.

“I don’t want to let you go, but shouldn’t I just do it today?”

 But even if it’s not a long separation. He held her hands together as if she were going to go for a long time and did not let go easily. As the couple’s conversation grew, the people around them, who had initially pretended to be unseen, began to tap their tired legs as they stood for a long time.

“The Duke is really the ideal husband. It’s just the attitude of treating you, even if the conditions are the only thing that really excites the girl.”

On the way in the carriage, Mary, who was helping her dress up as a commoner, blurted out.

“What is it?”

“You look like the main character from a romance novel at some point. Maybe you know how women feel.”

Erin laughed vaguely. It wasn’t, but the enchanted behavior was her preference found in romance novels. Maybe it’s a magical power.

‘So, how do he deal with the original woman?’

“Did you not hear what he do to other ladies?”

“Oh, not at all. Sir Rezil says he’s polite, but he’s not smiling, and he’s never asked for a word before.”

Erin smiled slightly. Mary probably didn’t want to end up considering her heart, but she knew that the Duke’s relationship with the Duchess was not smooth before marriage. She had heard the maids chatting about her in the early days of her honeymoon.

“What does Your Grace like? I don’t know at all except green eyes.” 

“The green eyes are green too, the most direct color of your women. Pretty Palladine.” 

“That’s annoying, so why not pick everyone? I’ve gone to the girl who was chasing you!”

“I’d rather choose someone else. The legend of Duchess of Peruka, who was famous for her beauty for generations, was broken.”

She knew that the Duke’s taste was a green-eyed woman, but until then she didn’t care deeply about the Duke, so she was more concerned with the maids were more concerned with hating her with the word. For some time, the portraits of the former duchess in the detached hall could not be seen properly.
