In the middle of the night in her room (1)
“Haaangh! Sir Le,onha…rd! Haaaannggh!”
“Ahng, good! Haahhnng! Sir Leonhard!”
It started again.
Aristasia shook her head and came out of her own room.
It was because the explicit moans that flowed along the thin wall tormented Aris.
She eventually had to give up her own room facing the wall with the source of the disturbance.
Her younger brother Leonhard Verdick, along with his good looks, had the honor of being a sword master, who were fewer than ten in the Empire.
It was perhaps natural that he captured the hearts of many women.
The problem was that Leonhard, a growing young man, called courtesans to his house every day.
She endured it once or twice, but they are still courtesans.
In many cases, even four people came at a time.
She couldn’t help but get angry because the courtesans came every day.
So, she would rather kick Leonhard to a high-end bar with courtesans, but the knights who had gone to buy courtesans were also weeping because Leonhard took all their attention.
In the end, at their earnest request, Leonhard had no choice but to start calling the courtesans back home…….
“Then what am I doing wrong”
Although it has been a long time since she had her debutante, she had no lover.
There was someone visiting the mansion one day to marry Aristasia.
But the courtesan, who was holding Leonhard’s arms, greeted her suitor warmly.
Evanstein Verdick, Aristasia’s older brother, and the head of the Duchy of Verdick, in which Aristasia and Leonhard are the members, saw it and kicked him out with a single stroke.
The reason was that he couldn’t afford to give his precious little sister to a man who wallowed with courtesans.
However, it was impossible for the nobles of the Empire, where it was common to mix bodies with courtesan or gigolo, to cross that wall.
The suitors tried to sneak in when the courtesans weren’t there, but there was not a day when the courtesans didn’t visit Leonhard.
In the end, they almost got kicked out by Duke Verdick, and they stopped coming to ask Aristasia about marriage.
‘Still, they will feel unfair.
Because there are few people who don’t visit courtesan or gigolo.’
Not to mention, their father has often introduced courtesans to his adult son.
It was just that Duke Verdick, who had an overly determined personality, was unique.
So Leonhard always had many women around because they felt like they could reach him, but Evanstein’s surroundings were full of eyes watching from a certain distance.
Somehow, since then, the only men left around Aristasia were her brothers, Evanstein Verdick, and her younger brother, Leonhard Verdick.
And Aristasia was more influenced by Leonhard of the playboy temperament than of Evanstein, who had a determined personality.
Not surprisingly, her older brother stayed on the 5th floor where the duke’s room is, but she was on the same 4th floor as Leonhard, even so in the next room.
‘Isn’t it strange that I see and hear other women’s moans every day and I’m not influenced by them’
At first, Aristasia could not stand the sounds of the courtesans that she had heard all day, and moved to another room.
However, she was attacked by an unidentified assailant that night, and she was eventually forced to return to the room next door to sword master Leonhard, for safety reasons.
She asked if she could move to the room next to her older brother, even if he was not a swordmaster but was good at swordsmanship, but Evanstain refused, so it was also impossible.
So Aristasia, who was gradually influenced by Leonhard, eventually committed to her work.
“Give this letter to Madame Ash.”
Aristasia instructed her maid while pretending to be calm as she struggled to calm her pounding heart.
The maid accepted the letter, saying she understood.
‘I, I made it! Finally, tonight, I’m going one step further!’
What Aristasia gave her maid was a letter to secretly send a gigolo into her room in the middle of the night.
The letter was accompanied by a statement that he should be a handsome man who could catch her eye.
If she gets married by arrangement, she’s probably more likely to marry an ugly man with a belly.
So she wanted the man that she could choose to be at least a handsome and fit man.
‘But what should I do at night’
Although she called a gigolo, she was worried about what kind of clothes to wear.
In the end, after much deliberation, Aristasia wore a dragonfly wing-like underwear gifted to her by her friend Milena, and she decided to wait with a gown over it.

Knock, knock, knock-
Aris tried to answer by pretending to be composed, but she couldn’t help but tremble in her voice.
The door opened silently and quietly.
Aris turned her eyes away as she expected some handsome gigolo to come.
She had secretly sworn that if she didn’t like the man sent to her, she would send it back and argue with Madame.
The door opened and a very handsome blond man appeared.
The only problem was that his name was Evanstein Verdick.
Evan, who came to her room at night, didn’t seem very well.
As soon as he entered, Evan’s eyes, squinting the room, barely met Aris.
At Evan’s face, which looked uncomfortable, Aris quietly looked into his eyes.
“You haven’t slept yet”
“Yes…….But what is going on at this hour”
Aris was nervous and pressed her hand gently to calm her pounding chest.
