Only with Your Heart - Chapter 63
After having breakfast together, Lukrov had to leave to do his duty as the lord of the castle.
The knights’ training never stops, and they don’t even rest if it’s raining. He once told her, “Battles are not limited to sunny days, and when it comes to war, it doesn’t matter if the weather’s windy, rainy, or snowy.”
Chizuru was planning to return to her room with Arde so she could wash up again before heading to take care of the children within the castle. Noah and the other children were fond of Chizuru, and her daily presence around them had already become a part of their lives. Their smiles were worth all the effort she was putting in and made her feel fulfilled.
While Chizuru was washing her face in a water bucket, Arde fixed her bed and took care of all the dirty laundry quickly.
“Chizuru-sama, you have to make your wedding dress early. There was a nice piece of cloth that you bought with Lukrov the other day on the night of the festival… “
Chizuru was a bit surprised, but then she thought:
‘Of course, Arde already knows that Lukrov called Chizuru his fiancée and that Lukrov said he wanted to get married before the winter reached its peak.’
The rumours among the servants were spreading faster than she expected.
Chizuru herself didn’t mind marrying at any time. Taking it slowly would’ve also been fine with her, but if Lukrov wanted to do it as soon as possible, it didn’t matter even if it took place tomorrow. However, it was certainly a once-in-a-lifetime thing, and she really wanted to prepare a wedding dress properly.
When she finished washing her face and lifted her head from the bucket to wipe her face with a cloth
Chizuru asked Arde, “Do you know how long it will take to finish the wedding dress?”
Arde stopped her hand from working and started counting the number of days while looking up in the air somewhere.
“That’s right… Hmmm… I suppose if we mobilized all the free seamstresses … I wonder if it will take ten days to make something suitable for the Duke’s bride, of course, it will also depend on the type of decoration you wish to have on the dress.”
“It doesn’t have to be very luxurious. A simple dress will be fine with me, as long as it doesn’t harm Lukrov’s reputation and won’t bring shame if I stood next to him. Other than that, I will be happy with anything.”
“First of all, we have to call a tailor and come up with some designs. Once that’s done, all that’s left is to sew the dress. I think it’ll be a good idea to talk with Lukrov-sama about the arrangements.”
After all, it seemed that it was not possible to go into a store and choose a ready-made one like in modern times.
Chizuru thought of the fact that there was also Lukrov’s position to consider, and they would get busy once they began the preparation.
For the time being, she will wait for the rain to stop, and when Lady Exia returns and the castle calms down, she could start the preparation with a clear head.
