This should conclude the Wizard’s Jealousy Arc…
Summary for what happened last chapter :

Feeling jealous and triggered by Lise’s dense answer, Wizard forcibly held Lise. This caused Lise to be frightened by Wizard and told him to leave her alone for awhile. During that time, the two of them were reflecting on their actions…

Self-Awareness as A Wife
From that day onwards, Lise was prohibited from going outside the mansion alone.
Wizard wasn’t only suspecting on her affair, but he wanted Lise to pay more attention towards her appearance in the eyes of the society.
Lise’s self-awareness as a wife is weak.
It wasn’t as if she was completely lacking of the self-awareness. However, just like yesterday, it was quite absurd for her to spend her time with another man other than her own husband, just the two of them, alone.
That was why she was being told to have some maids accompany her whenever she wanted to go outside.
Lise still hadn’t recovered from yesterday’s shock.
Her body trembles whenever she recalls it.
She had never seen Wizard who had that kind of frightening look and behavior up until now.
Wizard restrained Lise’s body excessively yesterday.
Even though he always caressed her and loved her gently up until now.
He had never forced her to do it against her own will.
Lise tried to think back upon everything up until now with composure.
After doing so, she realized that she was the one at fault.
Even though she is married, she interacted intimately with another man, and hurt Wizard who saw it.
Wizard also mentioned that he was jealous.
She came to understand that it was all due to her thoughtless conduct.
Lise felt guilty to Wizard.
Perhaps his behavior yesterday was reasonable.
Lise felt like she wanted to meet Wizard and apologize as soon as possible.
She decided that she won’t be intimate with another man from now on.
That is her duty as a wife.
One must preserve her chastity, and one must make sure that she won’t do anything that could lead to misunderstandings.
She discussed yesterday’s incident with her lady education tutor.
Then, she was horribly being scolded at.
“Lise-sama! You are lacking self-awareness as a wife! You can’t be intimate with another man!!”
(As I thought, that is the case…)
“At time like this, what should I do?”
The tutor held her own forehead.
“First, please go and sincerely apologize to Wizard-sama.”
“What should I do if I apologize but he won’t forgive me?”
“…Please think about that yourself.”
Lise became a little sad since she felt like she was being pushed aside.
“Then, tell the gardener boy of the circumstances, and tell him that you two couldn’t meet again.”
Lise answered straightforwardly.
Right now, Wizard is going out for work.
That was why, Lise went ahead to tell Darth that they couldn’t meet anymore.
Lise also asked one of the maids to accompany her.
“Darth… I can no longer come to meet you anymore.”
Lise explained the situation.
Darth came to understand why.
“Then, I’m returning this as my farewell.”
While saying that, Darth took out Lise’s handkerchief from his pocket.
Darth then handed the handkerchief over.
Lise received the handkerchief.
“I’m sorry, Darth. Good bye.”
“Yeah. Good bye.”
The maid looked at Lise with a complicated expression.
Lise returned to the mansion and fell down on the bed.
She was feeling a little bit lonely, thinking that she won’t be able to meet her precious friend anymore.
But, Wizard is the one most important for Lise.
She thought that it couldn’t be helped, since it was what he wanted and also her duty as a wife.
When the night fell, Wizard who looked sullen returned while holding a flower bouquet.
It was another bright red rose today.
“Lise, I apologize for yesterday. It’s an apology gift, will you receive it?”
“N, no. It was my fault. I should be the one to apologize.”
Wizard then asked for the maid to arrange the flowers in the vase.
“Despite the fact that I was jealous, I apologize for holding you forcibly yesterday.”
“I… am happy that you were jealous.”
“Because it means that you love me that much, right?!”
“I have been thinking about yesterday for a whole day today. As I realized, it was my fault. That’s why, please don’t mind it too much, Wizard-sama.”
Lise showed her smile while saying that.
Wizard reached out his hands and hugged Lise.
When he did that, Lise also hugged Wizard back.
Wizard was surprised.
“It was rare to receive a hug from Lise…”
“Today, I have bid Darth my farewell. I apologize for making you anxious.”
Being told that, Wizard’s expression was brightened.
However, Lise didn’t notice his change of facial expression.
“From now on, I think that I want to live with more awareness as a wife.”
“That’s good, keep that in your mind.”
“Then, as a wife, would you allow me to embrace you now?”
That said, the two of them headed over to the bed.
