Chapter 01

Today was another tiring day.


Diana, who was tapping her leg, yawned.
She was thinking about lying down for a second when a sound entered her ears.


She buried her head under a pillow at the persistent harassment of the ringing.
Shaking her head and covering her ears, suddenly Diana came to her senses. 


It was the ‘Miss is Looking For You’ bell.


“Why are you this late?!”


Diana ran in a hurry, and as soon as she opened the door, something flew at her.
It was a piece of sample fabric that hit her face and fell.


“I- I apologize.”


Covering her face, Diana lowered her head and apologized.


“Go to the Lily of The Valley Boutique and tell them to change it to the fourth fabric, then come back here.”




“Right now.


The surprised Diana raised her head.




Through the window behind the Miss, the sunset was seen.
The sun was still there, but it was clear that it would be night soon.


“B-but, Miss.
The Lily of The Valley Boutique is in the neighboring city…”


“Who doesn’t know that?”


Diana bit her lips.
The girl who was yelling at her was Baron Bordeaux’s little girl.


The Bordeaux territory was on a small plot of land in the countryside.
It wasn’t the biggest, but it was comfortable to live on.
It was located next to Aachen, the largest city in the central region, where the Lily of The Valley Boutique was. 


Diana was the youngest maid in Baron Bordeaux’s Mansion, and at the start, Diana wasn’t a maid at all.


Diana’s mother worked as a tutor for Baron Bordeaux.
She didn’t know who her father was because from the moment Diana was born, it was only her mother who was with her.
But, that fact was not to be regretted. 


Until her mother died in a sudden accident when she was seven.


“Um… Miss, if I go early tomorrow in the morning….”


“No, go right now.


Diana was about to cry.


“Shouldn’t you go and fix the order now so that I can see it fixed when I wake up tomorrow?”


Another maid, who was combing the Miss’ hair, giggled.
Whispering so that Diana couldn’t hear her words.


“Oh my, Miss, please take a look at her face.
She looks so scared– ”


“What’s so difficult about it that you look like you’re about to cry? Don’t you know that everybody can see? Stop being so embarrassing.”


Lily of The Valley was a boutique located in Central Aachen.
Even if it was simply in the next-door town center, it still took a couple of hours by carriage.
Even if the trip went well, it would be well into the night when she came back.


The lack of sun wasn’t the only problem.
If she stayed out too late, there might not be any carriages that would take her back to the Bordeaux territory.
If something went wrong, she had to walk all night long.




But, Diana couldn’t disobey the Miss’ words.


Sadly, her unfortunate hunch was correct.


By the time she had finished her business in the boutique, the sun had already set.
There wasn’t even one carriage that went to the Bordeaux territory.
In the dark night, Diana walked alone on the spooky path, relying on the moonlight to see.


‘I-it’s scary.’


She wiped away the tears around her eyes and hurried her steps.
She cried, but no one helped her.


Dina clasped the pendant on her chest.
The pendant, which had a small but detailed portrait on it, was her mother’s only relic.
The feeling of the metal gave her a sense of relief. 


The Miss, Atticia Bordeaux, didn’t torment her at the start.


When her mother was alive, Diana was actually Miss Atticia’s playmate.
She had clear memories of romping around and studying with her.


But, when Diana was seven years old, her mother died.
So, Baron Bordeaux took in the young girl.
Diana quickly got over the shock of losing her mother.
No, she actually had no choice but to quickly get over it.


A child that’s difficult to deal with.


If she was like that, she would’ve long been sent to the orphanage, and to Diana, that was terrifying.
There were a lot of bad rumors about the orphanage.
Moreover, she didn’t want to leave the place where the memories of her and her mother were.


 The Bordeaux Mansion was Diana’s world.


In order to not be seen as a troublesome child, Diana soon began to help the maids.
And just like that, Diana stayed in the ambiguous position of Atticia’s friend and maid.


Diana, who was just a skinny little girl, grew up to be a pretty girl.


Her hair, which used to be a murky gray, became a shiny silver, and her dull brown eyes became a bright and vivid scarlet.
With this, the way people looked at Diana slowly changed.


Then one day, during Atticia’s eleventh birthday party, Atticia’s fiance visited the Baron Bordeaux family.


Atticia, who was beautifully groomed, waited for her fiance’s escort, but his gaze did not fall on her at all.
Instead, he stared at Diana.



[What is that maid’s name?]



Leaving his fiance behind.
