I’d been scanning the male lead for 3 years when I was suddenly caught red-handed by his doting, tyrannical father, Duke Hades Louvremont!
“Following us, sending expensive gifts, and even coming alone to the north without regard for your own life…”
“I’m sorry. I have no excuse.”
“Alright, I lose. Your devotion is undeniable.”
“Even I can’t think of anyone as dedicated as this. Many women have pursued me, but none as persistently as you. I’m amazed.”
“Let’s hold it, then. Our wedding. As soon as possible.”
“I’ll accept my fate.”
“Wait, pardon?! What did you just say?”
Surely I must’ve misheard?
But the duke, smirking at my shocked face, gave the finishing blow.
“I said, I’ll marry you.”
The male lead’s dad is a narcissist.
