“I’ve informed the Elsmath department store.”
If it was Elsmath Department Store, it must have been the name of the most luxurious shopping district in the capital.
Ian continued with me, whose head was still full of question marks.
“Leave all the blank checks my wife is writing to me today.”
“Well. It’s not just a story for today.”
Ian smiled and said as if he were whispering love.
“I hope that the sparkling things will help ease your heart a little bit.”
‘This……What the hell are you talking about all of a sudden?’
I was confused, but I couldn’t ask back because t was happening in front of the attendants.
I could feel the attention of the attendants being drawn to me. All eyes were filled with envy and jealousy.
Among them, the maid with the orange hair had a particularly intense look in her eyes.
I tried to ignore their eyes and smiled as naturally as I could.
“Ha. Do you think that money can buy my heart?”
Of course, you can buy it. If it’s a little…….
I don’t know what’s going on, but I decided to take advantage of the situation first.
A blank cheque. When will I use this again?
“But you aren’t anyone else, and Sir Ian is sincere, so I’ll gladly accept it.”
Who doesn’t like shiny things?
At least, I wasn’t one of them. To be more precise, I haven’t even had the opportunity to decide whether or not I like it yet.
But now I know for sure.
I was the kind of person who liked shiny things a lot. That’s very bad, too.
‘It’s really pretty.’
When I was looking into the closet, I came dangerously close to pinching the bridge of my nose by accident.
There was something inside that was more stunning than anything else I’d ever seen.
A miniature baby angel has been intricately carved, along with a pentagonal jewellery box that runs underneath it.
The jewellery box, which was lavishly decorated with violet sapphires, glowed in an extravagantly deep purple colour from every vantage point.
“The saintess has a good eye. Speaking of this orgel……”
The clerk began to explain with a happy face.
It was a lengthy and detailed explanation of which artisans made what kind of jewellery and how difficult it was to make, but it didn’t really come to my ears.
This orgel was stunning on its own, regardless of whether or not it had such an interesting history.
“I will also play music for you.”
The clerk carefully opened the cupboard and took out the orgel.
When he operated the clockwork at the bottom of the jewellery box, a piece of a baby angel began to spin and play music.
Even the lilting melody that was playing was exquisite to listen to.
“There is not another one like it anywhere else in the entire world. If you pay for it right now, it will be yours and yours alone.”
The clerk murmured discretely in a voice that was eerily similar to that of a devil who is a master in seduction.
After focusing on the price tag for a short while, I abruptly opened both of my eyes wide.
How many zeros are there……?
‘No. I can’t buy it.’
It was impossible for me to spend such a large sum of money on such pointless and pretty junk that did nothing but make my head spin.
Ian must have meant to buy something to show off our relationship to others, not an orgel with so many different uses.
“I can’t either. Show me something else. It would be nice to have earrings or a necklace.”
“Excuse me, Madam Irene.”
I tried to look away from the orgel, but Dame Joan spoke to me in a troubled voice.
“I’m sorry, but today Madam Irene had an order to buy everything to buy everything she wants.”
“Exactly, he said this. ‘Be sure to purchase everything that my wife’s eyes linger on for more than ten seconds. As you know, my wife tends to put up with material desires.’”
“Oh my, Oh my.”
When Dame Joan delivered the line that Ian had done in his characteristic insipid voice, cheers erupted from all over the place.
However, unlike the reaction of the people around me, I pouted alone.
“That guy. We can’t show off as husband and wife by spending time together, so you want to solve the problem with money, right?’
Even Ian was completely clueless about everything.
When it comes to love, money isn’t everything.
No matter how much money I put into these jewels,, being with someone made them feel more romantic.
No matter how much I bought these jewels, people always felt more romantic when they were together.
“Sir Ian seems to really love Madam Irene a lot.”
“You seem very hooked. You are all in love.”
…… The clerks had different ideas from mine.
‘Err. I don’t know. If that’s what he means, I’ll keep up with you.’
It’s not even my money anyway.
After briefly considering the situation, I approached the clerk.
“Please. Give me this orgel.”
“Oh, what an excellent choice! How can I be of assistance to you with the payment? Since we are a company that has partnered with the Imperial Bank, it is perfectly reasonable for you to make payments in installments.”
The clerk quickly and kindly recited the manual that seemed to be in working order.
Well, I didn’t expect to say this line because I used to pay for college textbooks in installments.
I opened my mouth with a new feeling.
“I’ll give you all the money in one single payment..”
Shopping was a lot of fun.
I was taking a short break at a cafe that had seating outside and staring blankly into space.
‘How much is the total amount of money I picked up today?’
At least 6 zeros…… No. let’s not think about that.
I quickly tried to push my thoughts out of my head. I have to think about how much it will hurt my petit bourgeois heart.
‘But is this really going to work?’
First of all, rumours will surely fly because numerous customers witnessed me sweeping the department store today.
Irene Grace swept the department store, and all of the payments were made in the name of Ian Esteban.
Rumours like that must already be running around like words without feet travel a thousand miles.
I opened one of my bags and pulled out the last item I had purchased.
A box with an opulent presentation that is about the size of the palm of my hand. The package contained a tie pin that had a sapphire set into it.
It was also the only item for which I made a payment directly into my account rather than sending Ian a cheque.
‘It’s kind of like buying a present with that person’s money.’
I had no plans to buy Ian a gift, to be honest. He wouldn’t expect such sincerity from me either.
It was a very impulsive purchase. Even if the sparkling sapphires in the store didn’t look exactly like that guy’s eyes, they still wouldn’t have stopped by to take a look at the gems.
‘By the way, did he use something like a tie pin?’
Ian wore mostly simple clothes. He was so beautiful that he looked even better than he did in his clothes.
Would someone like that really wear a jewelled tie pin?
‘Ah, I don’t know.’
If you don’t like it, I’ll return it.
I asked him to get a receipt for a tie pin because I thought he would say he didn’t need it anyway.
While I pondered this, I sipped my chocolate drink. The cold beverage, which was also sweet, worked quickly to boost energy.
I think that it has all of the energy that the department store drained out of my energy. I was thinking about getting up soon.
“What. Who is this?”
A voice like I had never heard before came into my ears.
“There is a precious person in a humble place. Hello, Saintess. I’ll see you all in a place like this.”
I made a small movement with my head to the side and then frowned for a second.
That charming, innocent-looking face. Where did I see it?
I greeted the young man who was standing in the middle of the group, and he approached me.
“Hello, Mr. Ardon!”
The bright young man’s forehead cracked for a moment.
Oh, was that his name?
Because I was feeling bad, I put my hand down and greeted the person. I had no choice but to do it. My memory is already full of remembering a name that doesn’t even appear in the original novel.
“Excuse me. Nice to meet you, Mr. Arden. It’s been a while since we last spoke.”
It seemed like a long time, I blurted it out without giving it much thought, but Arden’s expression hardened once more.
‘Oh. Come to think of it, He was abandoned by Cordelia. This person.’
Arden and Lorena used to be Cordelia’s closest aides, are now in a position where they are not even invited to her salon.
Cordelia must have realised at some point that the two people who she thought were her friends were actually using her.
The nobles who were currently sewing on Aden’s side were not part of Cordelia’s group either.
I didn’t mean to stab Aden in the tender spot, but I did, so I sipped the chocolate drink for no particular reason.
“Yes. It’s been a long time. It is hard to see the saintess in the social world these days.”
Arden, who quickly finished his expression, said quietly.
But because I knew a little bit about his personality, I could tell that there was something bony about that question.
“Yes, it’s been a while since I haven’t been to a social gathering. Because I get caught up in various things.”
It’s true that I’ve been really busy these days, but unfortunately, all of them couldn’t be revealed to the public.
Then, Arden smiled softly as he roughly glossed over it.
“It’s all sorts of things…… Were you more preoccupied with your work than going to see the Moon of the Empire?”
The moon of the empire means the empress.
When he unexpectedly brought up the empress, all I did was look at Arden and remain silent.
“You must know that Her Majesty the Empress held a grand ball a week ago, right?”
