I’m Obsessed With the Reverse Harem Male Leads! – Chapter 1.2

I didn’t know what it was like to have a sister.

Because I didn’t have a family.

If I deserved an apology, maybe it’s a deep issue.

Strangely enough, I thought it was clear that it would put me in trouble.

Yet… the meaning of the word ‘Family’.

It is also true that I expected the depth of affection that could be created from such a thing because it was something I had never felt in my life.

I have to complete the final quest of this game.

It would be ridiculous if I was shaken from my goal because of a sister, I haven’t met yet.

“Oh my gosh!”

“Isn’t that Your Highness, Princess Gracie?”

“How dare she come here!”

“I know!”

Cover your mouth and say it, you naughty things.

There were many luxuriously dressed women, and it was said to be a secret garden, but it seemed to be inferior to the one I had. There were a lot of flowers like the blue roses in my garden, too, but maybe we like the same flowers because we’re twins.

“Gracie! You’re here!”

It’s crazy.

Princess Gracie’s face was disfigured, she was a princess, so I wondered why she was like this.

My sister was surprisingly beautiful.

“I didn’t expect you to come! I am so happy!”

Her heart was pounding strangely as she held my hand tightly and spoke.

We’re twins, so why don’t we look alike at all?

The hair color and eye color were surprisingly similar, but unlike my melted face, Keira’s face was beautiful enough to go well with Clayton like a pair.

“They said they’re twins…”

“One is a monster.”

“Phew, look at her wearing a mask.”

“If I was her, I wouldn’t be able to leave my room if I had to walk around like that.”

“She has no shame!”

I told you to talk with your mouth covered, but you’re really talking with your mouth covered.

They’re gossiping excitedly while holding a fan.

I want to take away the fan and slap their mouths only.

Slap, slap, right on the lips!

 

Keira Gabriela Bastian

: The first princess of the Bastian Empire / Gracie Gabriela Bastian’s twin sister.

Unable to check affection

 

Can I check how much you love me?

She pressed the arrow out of curiosity.

 

This is related to the Mirror of Truth. You cannot proceed because the quest conditions have not been met.

 

Are you kidding me?

“Gracie!”

 

Keira Gabriela Bastian is very pleased to see Princess Gracie.

 

“Yes, sister.”

She hummed as if she was happy to see me, so my heart pounded, perhaps because I was excited. Because I wasn’t used to being this welcomed when I visited anyone.

“The rule is to leave the escort outside. Will you please do that?”

“Oh, yes. Sir Francis.”

When Francis was called, he simply bowed down. However, his face looked somewhat uncomfortable. Because of that, I also felt a bit uncomfortable.

There are only women here, so what’s the danger? 

 

Quest Completed!

‘Player 2’ has accepted the invitation of Princess Keira! If you complete the quests below, you can check the affection of the specified person.

→ Drink tea with Keira.

 

What? That’s easy.

There was still some gossip about me nearby, but it didn’t matter. I’m used to things like this.

I don’t care what you guys say.

However, the warm body temperature being transmitted through her hand felt strange.

Because there weren’t many people who held my hand like this.

I also felt a little emotional.

It’s been a life where I’ve been running pretty hard, it’s a pity that I didn’t even try dating.

“For today’s tea party, we’re going to talk about our upcoming birthday party.”

“Oh, I see. How many days until our birthday?”

“One month.”

She offered me a seat next to her, and as soon as I sat down, she brushed the hair off my cheek and tucked it behind my ear. My face was hot, and the heat traveled up to my ears; I was embarrassed.

I guess it’s because I’m not used to such a friendly touch.

“Gracie.”

“Yes.”

I don’t know what you’re trying to say, but I thought those hesitant lips were also very pretty. My sister moistened her lips as she contemplated whether to speak or not, but she managed to speak up.

“Would you like to go on a boat ride tomorrow, together?”

The nobles’ boating activity was something I was only familiar with through paintings. In addition, it was impossible to know how the people of this country played. Nevertheless, I felt like I would be okay somehow. Because of the soft smile on her face, she looked harmless.

“I would like that.”

I couldn’t think of a good reason to refuse.

“I’m happy.”

We’re supposed to be twins.

Perhaps if Princess Gracie’s face had been intact, it would have been the same. Identical twins are often so similar that it is difficult to distinguish them.

Keira’s pure white hair was as fine as silk. Her deep pink eyes sparkled like Rubellite jewels, and her long, attenuated lips, which were absent from any cosmetics, were very coveted and beautiful. Their snowy-white skin looked similar, but the resemblance tickled my heart for some reason.

“Try this.”

The nicer she was to me, the more the gaze around her seemed to soften.

“You two get along well.”

“Yes, that’s right. Our Gracie is very shy.”

“… … .”

“You don’t know how happy I am that you came out like this.”

She continued to smile.

The more I saw it, the prettier it looked.

Come to think of it, the name of the game is ‘The Princess’ Men’, so why are there two princesses? Are we both protagonists?

 

Trace amounts of impurities are mixed in ‘Player 2’s tea.

Digitoxin. 

 

It made me feel like a fool for thinking life was easy again. I saw the maids nearby. The expressions they wore indicated that they were ignorant of the situation. So I looked at my sister, who was smiling like an angel again.

“Drink this instead.”

I wanted to test something.  

I exchanged our teacups casually with an innocent face. For some reason, only the kettle that poured my tea was different. I thought it was just a different tea. I sighed and waited for my sister to drink her tea.

“Hurry up and try it.”

My sister smiled brightly and drank the tea she had received.

What? Don’t you know what’s in it?

I waited patiently for the symptoms of digitoxin poisoning to appear.

“Gracie, how have you been these days? Tell this sister everything.”

“I’ve been doing just fine. Yesterday I brought flowers to  Duke de L’Evoire, but I was kicked out,” I replied sourly. Keira’s brows lifted in surprise.

“Oh, my. I see. You must have been upset.”

It was time for the symptoms to start, she should have had a headache right about now, but she was fine. She didn’t seem to have diarrhea nor did she look nauseous. The drug had other serious side effects such as visual impairment. The screen did say there were only trace amounts so maybe she didn’t ingest enough.

“Sister, how many of these do you see?”

“Huh? You mean your fingers?”

Her pupils were normal.

“Yes.”

“Five fingers. Gracie has always had pretty hands.”

She’s prettier and good at saying strange things. Is she also blind?

It was apparent that she had no idea that something was added to the tea. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have been able to easily switch the teacups and my sister wouldn’t have just drank the tea when told to.

“Your Highness!”

A woman dressed in a slightly different outfit than the maids appeared out of nowhere and muttered something in Keira’s ear. Whatever was said caused Keira’s expression to darken. She then turned towards me and smiled softly again.

“Gracie, I’m going to go outside for a moment. Can you wait for me?”

“… Well.”

“If you want to head back first, that’s fine. But, I hope you can come to the boat ride tomorrow.”

Her hand caressed my cheek, and then gently patted the top of my head. No matter how you look at it, my sister appeared fine.

I felt disappointed when the warm touch ended but gave Keira a pleasant smile. She gave me a beautiful smile in return and then the maid led her outside.

“Haha!”

The girl, who I had seen gossiping behind a hand fan earlier, got up from her seat.

 

Caution!  Removal of the mask increases the difficulty.

 

I was surprised to see the status window pop up suddenly and wondered if something was about to.

“Ladies.”

It seems like the fan girl was summoning the other girls. All of a sudden, they all stood up and surrounded me.

Please, no. What childish thing are you about to do? Why did everyone bring over their teacups?

Unfortunately, I was wearing a white dress, and it was now covered with various tea stains. The skirt gradually turned red, blue, and yellow. There was an overwhelming scent of tea that now accompanied me as well.

“Oh, Your Highness! I made a mistake.”

“Wow! I made a mistake, too. What should I do?”

“Will you forgive me, Your Highness?”

“My hands slipped, hahaha.”

As soon as Keira left, this happened.

My sister was most likely the driving force behind this.

But I’m not sure.

‘Guys! She doesn’t have a mother!’

‘Do you live in an orphanage? But why did you pretend not to?’

This is nothing. Nothing, you punks.

I jumped up, grabbed the teacup in front of me, and threw the contents into the face of the girl with the fan.

“I made a mistake too.”

She was holding a fan, but that didn’t prevent her from being drenched in the tea. The fan’s feathers were damp and droopy. Her red hair and even her dress were covered in tea.

I didn’t even touch the tea, however, I still wanted to check the contents, but this status window doesn’t even open when I need it most.

“Oh my God, how can you be so frivolous!?”

The hand holding the fan trembled, and her face hideously contorted like a goblin. Of course, not like the handsome goblins in the dramas, but like the goblin of hell. Not Korean style, but Japanese style.

“Didn’t you make a frivolous mistake first?”

“Ladies!”

Why do you keep shouting, ‘Ladies’?

Isn’t that a little too cliche?

But the clichéd lines yielded a clichéd but effective solution, which led to my arms being restrained behind my back.

Oh my god! Why is this body so weak!?

“Release me.”

“You have to apologize first, Your Highness.”

“Yes, I am sorry. Now let me go.”

I did what I was told, but they still continued to restrain me. What a liar!

“Pfft! Yes, you should. Humility suits you, Your Highness.”

She slapped me in the face with her wet fan and the status window turned red again. The feathers were soft and tickled, but it was wet and unpleasant.

I was not confident about winning 4-1.

No, if you have to face 4 people in the first place, make sure you have great stamina!

 

Caution! The mask is about to come off!

Removal of the mask increases the difficulty.

 

I know!

I thought there would be a quest to help with this situation since the status window popped up, but it’s just useless information that I already know.

“Oh, no!”

The sudden attempt to remove the mask startled me and I began to struggle against their hold. But it was useless because they strengthened their hold and I was unable to move. The woman that was restraining me from behind was particularly strong, so strong that I found it hard to believe that she wasn’t a knight.

 

Warning! Warning!  The mask is in danger of being removed!

 

No! Don’t just warn me! Help me!

 

The mask has been removed.

Put it back on within the time limit!

1 minute… … 59 seconds, 58 seconds… …

 

How!? Hey, do you want me to fight against those muscular arms with this body? What?

Her shoulders were broad and the forearms visible in the dress resembled a gym trainer!

 

The difficulty of the next quest will increase significantly due to the non-fulfillment of the quest conditions.

 

Oh my god!

“What is this?”

When I looked in the direction of the welcoming voice, my sister was approaching with a handsome man.

Sister, you said men were not allowed to enter…

Are you sure you’re not a bad person? Aren’t you the kind of person who would be willing to apologize to me? Tell me what you have to apologize for! Damn bastard game!!!!

“Oh, my… Princess Gracie, your face…”

The handsome man turned away, covering his mouth with his hand. Such trash, why does that matter now? Can’t you see what I’m going through right now?

A status window appeared next to the garbage dump.

 

Adrian Russell

: Duke / Unable to check affection

 

In two days, I’ve run into two dukes of this country.

What a shame.

With tears in my eyes, I pressed the arrow.

 

Princess Gracie’s Fiancée

 

After reading that, I looked at the face beyond the status window. He’s surprisingly handsome, with silver hair and gray eyes.

Quite the opposite of Clayton. He had a high nose bridge, no double eyelids, long eyelashes, and red lips. If Clayton is a gorgeous handsome man, this one must be a splendid handsome man. It means the same thing anyway.

Except for the surprised expression.

“Duke Russell! How can you be so rude!?”

Keira came running towards me with a surprised expression, and the girls who were holding me moved away in an instant and surrounded Keira with pleading voices. For some reason, the cheek that was hit by the fan was itchy.

“Your Highness!”

“Her Highness, Princess Gracie, threw tea on Bianca Fulker!”

“Gracie did?”

“Yes, and we were trying to stop her from throwing tea on us as well…”

Wow, I’m pretty good at crying too.

But were they better?

I laughed in vain and remained motionless. It didn’t seem like Keira would believe anything I said anyway because her expression looked terrible. I didn’t know if my words would hold any weight against the four of them. They were invited guests, their relationship with my sister might be special.

“I don’t think that’s important right now.”

Adrian Russell has a pretty good voice. His deep honeyed voice was resonating in my ears. It was as deep as Clayton’s voice, but did it feel a little softer?

“I can’t believe you touched the body of a royal family member.  Don’t you know you can be decapitated just for that?”

Unlike his surprised reaction earlier, he spoke in my defense.  When he spoke, I glanced at him, and saw that he averted his gaze from my direction.

Yeah, you hate this face as well, right?

I sighed as I picked up the mask and secured it to my face once again. I felt uncomfortable because my entire body was soaked with tea, but I thought it would be even more annoying to deal with it bare-faced, therefore, I tied the mask tightly so that it wouldn’t come loose.

“Gracie! I’ll apologize. It’s my carelessness, okay?”

“… …”

“Please don’t punish the girls. I beg of you!”

I would like to cut off their necks and hang them, but I shouldn’t. It would only push me further away from the goal of accepting my sister’s apology. I still don’t know what you need to apologize for. I shouldn’t make the objective harder to achieve.

Let’s think of the money.

7 billion won is such a large amount that I would never be able to spend it all in my lifetime. (TL: $5,976,729.50 USD)

I would have that type of money.

I have to wake up within a year.

I can do anything for that, whether I had to throw tea, drink tea through my nose, or drink poisoned tea and have diarrhea.

I have to calm down.

“Okay.”

Maybe it was because Keira was crying, but my heart felt weak.

I didn’t want to suspect my sister without clear evidence. I wouldn’t do anything suspicious when the evidence was just circumstantial.

Because I’ve been through that before.

Maybe she was the only person in this world who liked me.

“Thank you, Gracie. I’m really sorry, sister.”

The way she hugged me in my wet dress as if nothing was wrong, reminded me of the gift I could only receive on my birthday.

‘Is this really okay?’

‘Yes, I like hugging the most.’

From that year on, I remembered how the nun would hug me on my birthday every year, so I couldn’t help but feel my heart soften.

I didn’t like the scent of roses that came from my sister, but her touch was warm. I was full of suspicion, but I still couldn’t find a plausible reason for their actions.

Now was not the time to get angry.

I’ll wait until there’s more clarity on the situation.

“What are you doing?”

I thought I was going to be alone with Keira, but Adrian unexpectedly followed behind. Seeing my messy attire, Francis also followed with a subtly crumpled expression.

“Why are you speaking informally?”

“What?”

“Duke, why are you acting informally with me?”

“Then why are you suddenly being polite?”

Princess Gracie must have been rude to Adrian Russell. After all, there’s no way the princess, who causes trouble everywhere she goes, would have been polite to her fiancée.

 

Congratulations! The quest is complete!

You drank tea with Keira Gabriela Bastian.

Please check the rewards below!

 

“Are you ignoring me again?”

He grabbed my hand while I was trying to press the arrow. He still avoided looking at me directly, so I stared at him with a blank expression.

After seeing the face under this mask, you seem to be having a difficult time. Were you that shocked to see the face under your fiancé’s mask?

“My face is terrible, right?”

“… No.”

“Then why did you say that earlier?”

“I was just a little surprised since you’ve never shown it before.”

As soon as he let go of my hand, I casually pressed the arrow.

 

Reward: You can check the affection level of the specified opponent.

 

I’ll have to try this on my sister.

“And that doesn’t matter.”

“You mean my face doesn’t matter?”

“Yes. No matter how your face looks, you’re still my fiancée, and that doesn’t change.”

Weren’t you startled earlier?

I wanted to take off the mask once more to scare him, but I didn’t dare because his words seemed so sincere. I was very annoyed by Francis, who staggered upon hearing his words.  Would he be startled as well if I took off the mask?

Adrian Russell was likely on my side.

You must know a lot about Princess Gracie.

“If my sister did something wrong to me, what would it be?”

Adrian frowned at my nonsensical question. He had a sharp, handsome face, but he looks even more handsome when he frowns.

“I don’t know.”

“Then if I did something wrong to you, what do you think it would be?”

“Should I give you a list or summarize it?”

That’s a lot, damn it.

“First, tell me the worst one.”

He smiled curiously, even his playful expression was really beautiful. How can you be so handsome? It must be hard.

If I can’t focus on the conversation, isn’t it unfair?

“When you stole from me, wasn’t that the worst one?”

Oh my god…

 


 

I shook off the clingy Adrian and headed to my palace. As he left, I remembered something else strangely clingy.

‘Why aren’t you looking these days?’

Was it something I had to look for often?

Well, if it’s really necessary, wouldn’t there be a quest? First of all, the final quest is related to my twin sister, so do I need to get involved with these men?

It’s also true that the handsome faces, which would be subtly distorted whenever I appeared, would take some time getting used to.

What was interesting was that my sister’s palace was located far from the emperor’s palace, but my palace was directly next to it.

“Why do you look like that?” Francis couldn’t restrain his curiosity any longer and finally spoke.

My escort knight is the commander of the guard, and I live right next to the Imperial Palace. Perhaps my strongest ally is the emperor.

“I was punished. I usually do a lot of bad things.”

“… … .”

“Do I look bad?” I glanced down at the mess on my dress.

When I lifted my gaze, our eyes met, and he shrugged his shoulders in embarrassment. Then, for some reason, he took off his cloak and paused for a moment.

He draped the cloak over my shoulders. I was feeling cold due to my damp clothes, but now I felt a little warmer.

“Thank you.”

 

Quest! Ask Francis Patella about one of the topics below.

Option 1. About Clayton de L’Evoire

Option 2. About Adrian Russell

Option 3. About Francis Patella

Option 4. About Keira Gabriela Bastian

 

Isn’t the choice obvious?

Option 4.

“Do Keira and I have a bad relationship?”

This time, I asked without averting my gaze. He paused for a moment. After he took off his black cloak, underneath was a navy-blue uniform. The dark blue uniform made his large, muscular body more visible. And with every breath he took, the muscles in his arms seemed to harden.

Wow… He’s so muscular that even the veins in his neck are prominent…

“Did Princess Keira do this to you?”

“… No, I took my anger out on the other girls.”

He didn’t make a strange expression and didn’t ask for me to elaborate, as if he already knew the truth of the situation.

“You had a situation.”

 

Francis Patella

: Captain of the Guard / Unable to check affection

 

The status window suddenly popped up. I pressed the arrow thinking that something might have been updated.

 

I pity Princess Gracie.

 

“Now I want to live properly, but it’s not easy.”

Do I look pitiful? Don’t I look pathetic?

When I spoke with a trembling voice and appeared to be struggling to hold back my tears, his face filled with compassion.

He fiddled with his inner pocket, contemplating whether to offer his handkerchief. However, in the end, he didn’t hand over the handkerchief.

“Then why did you abandon Clayton and choose Adrian?”

“Was leaving Clayton and choosing Adrian the biggest mistake I made?”

This is a confirmation shot. If my image is dog sh*t, there must be a source.

“Yes.”

And if the face was like this, it could be related to the situation.

“Sir Francis, why do you think I would have abandoned the Duke of L’Evoire?”

He shut his mouth and looked at me like he didn’t understand why I was asking such a question. I struggled to find the words to explain. I wanted him to see me as someone trying to fix my mistakes in order to start a new life. Looking at his expression, it seems to have worked quite well.

This guy… You’re really weak to emotions.

“Your Highness didn’t usually stick with one man in the first place. That must have been the reason.”

Oh my god! In addition, there’s a history of rolling around with a bunch of men!

 


 

It was early morning. When I opened my eyes, I should have seen the gold embroidery on the red canopy, but there was a blue status window in front of me.

“A quest this early in the morning?”

 

  Quest! Find a four-leaf clover in the Emperor’s Garden behind the main palace!

P.S. If you don’t get up, the period of usage for the status window will expire.

 

Are you kidding me? If that’s the case, why did you create a period of usage?

I got up right away and pulled the rope.

“Yes, Your Highness!”

“Clothes, now.”

“Yes!”

Ripley replied loudly and quickly prepared my clothing.

Thanks to that, I was able to get dressed in half the time as usual, and head to the imperial palace. She prepared in haste, but my attire wasn’t lacking.

I kneeled in a clover patch and ran my hands through the three-leaf clovers. The sun was gradually rising, so I was able to see more clearly.

While I was fiddling with the grass again, Francis spoke to me.

“What made you come out here?”

“Will you help me if I tell you?”

“No.”

Then don’t ask! You bastard!

“You don’t have to help me. I was joking.”

I smiled and sat down in the grass, looking at each individual clover. When I was younger, I often visited fields to find a four-leaf clover among the clover patches like this. I was frequently alone because everyone else was studying at the academy and I didn’t study unless it was with college student volunteers sent by the local governments.

“Are you looking for a four-leaf clover?”

“Yes.”

“Why all of a sudden?”

“I just suddenly wanted to find one.”

After frowning at Francis, he shut his mouth firmly. Then he untied his cloak and handed it to his subordinate behind him. He sat on the ground and began to search through the grass.

“You said you weren’t going to help me.”

“Won’t it make you more comfortable if I help?”

“I thought Sir Francis didn’t like me?”

“I don’t dislike you.”

That’s funny. You don’t hate me that much anymore.

After searching for about an hour, there was no sign of finding it, so I was getting tired.

“I found it.”

“Oh, really?”

He stood up so I followed suit. I held out both hands and waited for him to give me the four-leaf clover. But took whatever he was holding in his hand and held it high over my head.

“What are you doing?”

“I don’t want to give it to you because I’m actually looking for one.”

What are you talking about, madman?

“Okay.”

Unable to hold back a sigh and looked down at the ground again. It was then that I thought I heard him laugh.

“Aren’t you going to take it away?”

“Sir Francis found it. What do you want me to do?”

“Then take it. If you take it from me, I will give it to you.”

“How can I take it from Sir Francis? I’ll just find a new one.”

When I tried to turn around, I got a leg cramp from sitting for too long. I lost my balance and stumbled before falling towards the ground.

I closed my eyes tightly, and strangely, something touched my back, and I didn’t feel any of the pain you would expect when falling.

I opened my eyes. Perhaps Francis held me in order to prevent me from falling, but that didn’t matter because the hand holding the four-leaf clover was in front of his chest.  Therefore….

“I got it.”

I grabbed Francis’ hand to snatch away the four-leaf clover that was between his fingers.

 

  Quest complete! Check the rewards below

The period for viewing the status window will be extended by 7 days! D-Day is now the 19th, the day you have to say goodbye to the status window!

 

The lack of a status window was unsettling, so I followed its instructions, but it was only extended by a week.

I slowly pulled my body away from Francis and sighed. Then I noticed that he stiffened and turned away.

“Sir Francis?”

He seemed angry when he turned back around.

“Sorry. I didn’t know you’d be so angry. I will give it back.”

“Okay, that’s it! Please take it!”

Wow, you must be really mad.

“No. Actually, I came here because I wanted to give it to Sir Francis.”

“… Why?”

“I do not know. I just wanted to give it to you.”

I already completed the quest, so I didn’t need it anymore.

“Why are you giving it to him?”

Surprised by the tall stature that casted a shadow over my shoulders, I turned around and saw an unwelcome person. It was clear that the voice belonged to Clayton

 

Quest! You can give the four-leaf clover to one of the people below.

Option 1. Clayton

Option 2. Francis

 

Option 2.

While staring at the status window I handed it to Francis, who was bewildered because neither he nor I knew what was going on.

“Why are you giving it to me?”

“I came here to give it to you, Sir Francis.”

“Give it to me.”

Clayton reached out to Francis. He held his breath nervously and handed it over to Clayton.

“What are you doing?”

“I’m taking what’s mine.”

“Thief.”

“What?”

“You’re a thief.”

He’s a total thief! No, come to think of it, they’re both thieves since they are armed with weapons!

Armed robbery!

“Why am I a thief?”

“You took what I gave to Sir Francis.”

“It’s your own fault. Why are you giving this to him?”

“Why is the Duke of L’Evoire concerned with who I give things to? Did you forget that you stepped on my roses last time?” I retorted in anger.

He stepped closer and acted as if he knew nothing of shame. Because of the height difference, just looking up at him is terrifying.

“Didn’t I say I wanted more flowers?”

“Oh, so that’s why you took this? You’re so mean.”

I hesitated and backed away, but suddenly the status window popped up.

 

Clayton de L’Evoire

: Duke / Unable to check affection

 

“I, I’ll give it to you, Your Excellency!”

This bastard, I was on his side, but he’s taking Clayton’s side. You ungrateful bastard!

Annoyed, I ignored them and pressed the arrow.

 

I hate Francis Patella.

 

Are you crazy?

 


 

“Where are you going?”

“To a place where there is no Duke de L’Evoire.”

When I tried to walk away, he blocked my path. I tried to sidestep around him and he blocked me once again. Any direction where I try to flee, he blocks it.

“Why?”

The words “Get lost” almost slipped out, but I restrained myself. For now, it was impossible to win against him. It would have been an easy feat if I had the muscles and strength as that gym trainer girl.

“Because I don’t want to be near you.”

“Why?”

The weather was really beautiful. If it weren’t for this situation, I would have enjoyed and admired such a beautiful flower garden behind the main palace. I can’t believe there were two handsome men here.

On the surface, there was no other spectacular view like this.

“Does Duke de L’Evoire want to be near me?”

“Yes.”

He answered without any hesitation, and I was almost speechless for a moment. But I had a secret weapon.

“Didn’t you trample on all the flowers?”

“… … .”

“You humiliated me in front of others.”

A pleasant feeling came over me as I shot his ‘guilt spot’. It seemed to work very well.

“You… … Didn’t you do that to me first?”

“I apologize for that. I was young then.”

Maybe because I didn’t know the details, the lie came out easily. Please come up with a quest that will allow me to see my memories. Because I feel like I’m going to get caught.

“I will accept your apology. So, can you hear the answer now?”

“What did you say then?”

“Are you pretending you don’t remember?”

“I really don’t remember.”

Clayton’s gaze was full of yearning and desire. His eyes were so blue that they went well with the clear skies. I didn’t hate it and found it quite attractive.

If you stare any harder, you’ll really shoot lasers.

“Can I be your next escort?”

“What are you talking about?”

It felt like I was the only one who didn’t know anything. Clayton was gradually approaching so I stepped back in discomfort, but he grabbed my arm gently, and could feel the heat of his touch.

As I was attempting to pull away but thought better of it. It wasn’t a good idea to arouse him any further, so I looked towards Francis.

‘You’re my escort!’

‘Save me!’

“Hey. Where are you looking?”

Perhaps he was dissatisfied with my eye contact with Francis, but he tightened his grasp on my arm. It didn’t hurt, but I felt the pressure and tried to shake his hand off.

“Wherever I look, what does it have to do with Duke de L’Evoire?”

“Why doesn’t it matter?”

“You don’t have any reason.”

“Yes, I do.”

“Really? Then why does it matter?”

“Because I will take care of you.”

Are you crazy?

If you’re going to take responsibility, let me end the game!

I’m so sick of this sh**** game!

“I’m sorry, but I think Duke Russell will be the one to do that.”

Who is responsible for what? I’m in charge! I will take responsibility for my life!

‘So let me go, you sh**** game!’

“You said that you made a mistake.”

When he released my arm, I let my guard down and suddenly my mask was removed.I reached out in surprise and tried to take it back, but he held it just out of my reach.

But he didn’t stop there, he grabbed my chin and lowered his face until our noses were almost touching.

You can’t take my first kiss like this!

So, I turned his head, and his lips touched my cheek. I was more surprised because it was warmer than I thought, but I was also excited because his handsome appearance was enough to ruin many people’s lives. I felt like I was going crazy.

No, it’s cheating to try something like this with that level of attractiveness!

If you had normal looks, wouldn’t it be an absurd thing to do!?

This is the most attractive person I’ve ever met in my life, so I felt like I was going crazy. I knew this wasn’t normal, but my heart was fluttering.

“Are you crazy?”

“Yes.”

“Don’t do that!”

“No, I’m going to kiss you, so don’t turn away.”

I slapped him on the shoulder to no avail. He didn’t even react when I began to slap him harder on the chest, but it felt like stone under my hand.

A perfectly chiseled chest!

“Oh no!”

Surprisingly, it was Francis who stopped him. Surprised by the unexpected reinforcement, Clayton’s blue eyes shifted from me to Francis.

“Why do you keep disturbing us?”

“I’m not”

“Then why do you keep bothering us?”

“What are you talking about? How can my escort guard disturb me?”

Clayton directed his gaze on me again, but this time with a frosty expression. I felt a chill under that gaze.

“You said you needed me.”

 

Quest!

 

What?!  In this situation?!

 

「 Duke Clayton de L’Evoire is angry! Please comfort him by choosing one of the options below.

 

Are you kidding me? Why should I comfort him?! Just tell him to calm down or something!

 

Option 1. Cry.

Option 2. Kiss.

Option 3. Hug.

Option 4. Beg him to kiss you.

 

What are you asking me to do? I’m going to strangle you!

But I was afraid of the status window, so I chose Option 1.

“Well, if you keep doing this… … I’ll be in trouble!”

Let’s think about something sad.

The thought of ​​the 7 billion disappearing…

If I cleared this terrible game, but it took more than 366 days, the prize money would disappear, and Company G might abandon me…

Those thoughts automatically brought tears to my eyes.

“Are you crying?”

“Crying…”

He completely let go of his anger once I gave him a pitiful look. You must be really weak against tears. You were on the battlefield, why are you so sensitive?

How did you survive on the battlefield like that?

 

The quest has been completed. See your reward below!

 

I was still crying, but I was curious about the reward below, so I pressed the arrow.

 

Confirm Duke Clayton de L’Evoire’s status of affection.

 

Get lost! I do not need it! Let me teleport back to my room instead!

“I’m sorry.”

He took out his handkerchief and wiped my face, the fabric was very luxurious.

“Gracie.”

The moment he embraced me; I became breathless. I could smell how good he smelled as my face rested against his hard chest. I wanted to run away but I was unable to move.

 

Affection: 99%

 

It’s obviously 99% out of 1000%. Does it even make sense to act this way towards the person you love?

“It’s my fault. So, forgive me.”

I still had to pretend to cry, but it was difficult for me to gradually regain my breath as he hugged me and patted my back.

Yesterday, it was my sister. Today it’s Clayton.

They both knew my weaknesses, which made me feel strange.

“I’ll be more careful next time. So… Don’t tell me you’re going to marry Russell. Please.”

Is the lion’s request really just a request? I am just an elk.  An elk can’t refuse a lion’s request. So, I had to act accordingly.

I nodded slowly as he caressed my cheek.

Please go now, you bastard.

 


 

There was another reason why I didn’t want to doubt my sister.

As an orphan, I used to work pretty hard to hide it. It was rare for me to get new clothes, so my clothes were always from donations.

‘Huh? Are those the clothes my mother threw away?’

Children from well-to-do families always donate clothes that are in good condition.

That was the beginning. I was a poor child who wore clothes thrown away by others.

When it rained, their parents came to pick them up, but I didn’t have such a parent. So, on rainy or snowy days, I always ended up wet on my way home.

Soon it was discovered that I was a parentless child.

The orphanage’s umbrellas were always in short supply. Even if I got up early to grab an umbrella, there were only a handful of instances where the umbrella I had in my hand was intact.

That day was gym class. Even though I locked the door of the classroom after changing, the door was open when I returned. Whether a thief opened it or not, the expensive items of the other students were of course gone.

‘My wallet is gone!’

‘Mine too!’

‘Wow, I don’t even have mine either!’

‘Guys, check the room!’

Until that moment, I was clueless because I had nothing worth stealing.

The only thing of mine that could be stolen was a textbook. Even my gym clothes were used, they were given to me by a senior who graduated from school.

Didn’t you steal it?’

‘You are an orphan. Who else would steal things from the class?’

The arrow of doubt flew straight to me. I experienced resentment for the first time, it was a dirty feeling.

At first, I thought it was stupid that the culprit would be in the same class.

‘I just had a class with you guys. If you don’t believe me, go through my locker and bag.’

‘I’m sure you hid it somewhere else, you beggar’

‘Wow, even though we were all just in the same class?’

It’s okay. It’s in the past. Don’t fret, just wait until you’re sure. I know there’s nothing I can’t endure.

After sorting out my thoughts, somehow, I returned to my room and that’s when I found someone I had never seen before standing around.

Another handsome man!

He had soft pink hair, as soft as finely spun wool from a lamb. In addition, his eyes were a different shade of blue than Clayton’s sharp glacier-blue eyes. His eyes were more of an emerald blue.

 

Leonil Graham

: Bookkeeper  / Unable to check affection

 

“Greetings, Your Highness.”

 

Keira’s affection and Gracie’s affection are inversely proportional.

 

So, he hates me as much as he likes Keira and hates Keira as much as he likes me. (TL: She’s referring to the inversely proportional math formula. When one value of something increases, the value of the other decreases or vice-versa.)

Looking at that amount of affection, it seems like he’s one of the male protagonists. It must be my sister’s man.

Didn’t we get along well on the surface?

Am I wrong?

Seriously, if we were on good terms, my sister wouldn’t have asked me to forgive those girls, right?

Did she really believe those girls, or did she pretend to believe them?

Maybe she lied about everything?

Since they were the princess’ men and there are two princesses, either one or both of us are the main characters.

But my twin sister couldn’t be a bad person if she was the main character, right? Usually, the female lead is nice!

‘Listen carefully! Don’t you love your family? Didn’t you decide to wait and not doubt anything without evidence?’

“I’m here to greet Your Highness.”

His pink hair and emerald-blue eyes left a very mysterious impression. He even had a pretty face like a male lead!

“What brought you here?”

Who wouldn’t be affected when greeted by an intelligent, handsome man who appeared completely harmless?

“I’m here to escort Princess Gracie.”

Does he hate me as well? But he was smiling nicely which made my heart flutter.

I just realized that I was weak against pretty and handsome men.

“Where are we going?”

“Didn’t Princess Keira ask you to go boating with her?”

I’m not going. Why would I go after the treatment I received last time?

“Oh, that’s not…”

What’s going on? I can’t speak.

 

Quest! Keira Gabriela Bastian, invites you to a boat ride!

 

If I clear this game, I’m going to find the developer and kill them!

 

Accept the invitation, and when you arrive at the quest location, select one of the options that will appear.

Option 1. Follow Leonil Graham.

Option 2. Go separately.

Option 3. Don’t go.

 

Oh, I can choose to not go? Let’s select Option 3 then…

 

Wrong approach.

 

Wrong approach.

 

Wrong approach.

 

Yeah, I expected that. Ugh.

Option 1. Follow Leonil Graham.

“Are you going to wear that outfit?”

I looked down at the dress I was wearing, the canary-yellow dress was rumpled from my earlier activities.

“Is it inappropriate to wear while boating?”

“No, but Princess Keira isn’t the only one there, so I’m wondering if you’ll be okay.”

I hope I don’t run into fan-girl or gym trainer girl.

First of all, I don’t think I’ll be able to resist them in this outfit, so I’ll change into some light clothing.

“Wait five minutes.”

“Yes, Your Highness.”

 


 

I might have a bad role in ‘The Princess’ Men’.

Keira was walking next to me, but the other young girls kept their distance like they were afraid.

I’m the one who’s scared!

So, I left my sister and walked ahead.

Fortunately, it was possible to take the driver to the boarding point.

 

Quest notification! When you board the ship, you will be presented with a selection of options.

 

“Are you sure you’re okay riding it?” Francis asked with a serious face.

Come to think of it, my new maid, Ripley, doesn’t know much about me, but maybe Francis does.

“How long has Sir Francis been my escort?”

“It’s been about five years.”

Then I should ask you and not the maid.

Ugh, nothing is easy.

“Why are you worried?”

Francis had been acting strange since earlier. I thought he was angry because he kept avoiding eye contact. Maybe he was angry that the four-leaf clover was stolen by Clayton.

“You can’t swim.”

“I can’t swim?”

“You hated learning because you fell into a river when you were young.”

Sister, I think you’re really a villain.

Otherwise, why would she ask someone, who once fell into a river, to go boating?

But why am I treated like a villain? Considering her actions, she’s the bad one!

As I thought about it, I recalled Keira’s warm arms.

‘Let’s not have any doubts. I don’t know for certain.

“Suddenly I got scared.”

Leonil was walking ahead but glanced back upon hearing Francis’ conversation with me. His pale pink hair looked brighter due to the dazzling sunlight.

“You won’t fall into the water.”

“If you fall into the water, I’ll save you, so don’t worry.”

Contrary to their contrasting attitudes, the red hair and pink look really good together. Francis’ intensely red hair fluttered in the wind, he reminded me of a puppy, so I wanted to pet his head.

Of course, never! I won’t touch it! You would be so mad!

“Please save me, Sir Francis.”

After all, you’re my escort guard, if I drown and die, you’re going to die too, right? Please save me.

His facial expression reminded me of a rescue dog I had seen in the past. I gave him a smile, but he replied with a blank stare. To ease the awkwardness, I let out a laugh and It did not help.

“Gracie!”

“Ah, sister.”

When I heard Keira’s voice, I turned around in response and saw her approaching with the four other girls.

Fan-girl must be really obsessed with fans. Today, she brought an elaborate fan heavy with feathers. Gym trainer girl was wearing a tight-fitting dress that displayed her broad shoulders. Every time she took a deep breath, her clothes looked like they were on the verge of bursting.

The other two young girls looked alike, so they were probably sisters.

“Gracie, come with me.”

“Yes, I would like that.”

I’d rather ride with my sister than ride with them. My sister and I were the same physiques, so if they fought, we might be evenly matched.

Strangely, the boat moved forward automatically, like something was propelling us underneath.

There were only three of us on the boat, Leonil Graham, my sister, and I.

From the mast, a semi-translucent cloth was hanging to block out the sun. The cloth went well with my sister’s pale skin. I made eye contact with Leonil, who was glancing at Keira. He had a cold expression on his face, but it quickly changed to expressionless, and then he smiled once again.

This was probably a place where I could connect with Leonil. But what did I know? I have never played a dating game before.

And he seems to like my sister more than me!

Damn, I’ve never even been in a relationship!

 

Quest! Be careful not to fall into the water when the boat curves up ahead!

 

You’re crazy, seriously. Am I going to drown?

 

If you complete the quest, you will receive the following rewards:

 

I could see the curve in the river up ahead, so I sighed and pressed the arrow.

 

Company G pays your hospital expenses.

 

I couldn’t miss out on this opportunity!

I was firmly determined not to fall. I glared at the upcoming curve while tightly grasping my skirt with trembling hands. Keira kept looking in my direction, so I was terrified

Which one was going to push me out, my sister or Leonil?

Upon close inspection, the current appeared to be quite strong. If I fall out here, no one will be able to even recover the body, right?

“Gracie, do you remember what happened in the past?”

Don’t bother me.

“What happened?”

“You fell into the water with me while you were playing.”

Her pretty smile was very innocent. Maybe my twin sister is really the main character and the four girls next to her were just evil supporting characters?

I’m sure I’ve heard the name Keira Gabriela Bastian somewhere before.

“Did I?”

“Yes. That’s why I’m so happy you were able to overcome your fear and join me.”

She conveyed her warmth by placing a hand over my trembling one.

“Can I hug you, Gracie?”

No, I don’t want to because I’m afraid you’ll drown me.

But I couldn’t say that. She hugged me and realized how weak I was to this warmth.

 

Warning! 30 seconds before you reach the dangerous section.

 

I felt compelled to confirm my sister’s affection.

 

Keira Gabriela Bastian

: First Princess / Unable to confirm affection.

You can check the affection level by using the item.

 

As I held my sister in my arms, I pressed the arrow without any hesitation.

 

  100% affection for Gracie Gabriela Bastian.

 

Is she really not a bad person?

So, am I the villainess in this game? But aren’t I supposed to reconcile with my sister and marry one of the male leads?

 

P.S. If you fall into the water, you will receive the following penalty:

Company G fires you.

 

Haha. What am I doing?

These are meaningless worries.

Who cares if I’m the bad guy? I’ll go back, ride the 7 billion won, and get back to the splendid life of working for Company G.

Fortunately, I was released from the hug when the curve approached.

The boat tilted to one side, not too much, but my body just swung backward, and I ended up grabbing the side of the boat

However, my body felt strange. I instantly felt cold, and my mind went blank as if I was being manipulated by something. I tried to stand up, but the boat was shaking so much that it was hard to regain my balance.

Splash!

 

Quest failed!

 

His body moved on its own and fell into the water. As if it was no longer my body!

“Sa, save…! Help…!”

My sister looked down indifferently as I struggled.

“Help me!”

Sister, you really don’t disappoint.

 

Additional quest for ‘Player 2’ who failed due to the high difficulty!

If you get out of the water within the time limit, the quest will be marked as completed.
