The beautiful face that was polished up just for this day’s sake was now looking down in her embarrassment.
“Marietta… how beautiful…”
Belvant reflexively murmured.
She blushed as she raised her eyes up to look at her most beloved bridegroom, and smiled.
[Gwaa, c, cute! My bride is the most beautiful one in this world!]
Enduring himself with just hugging her tightly and rubbing their cheeks together, Belvant’s face turned into his strict expression befitting of a warrior who’s about to face his mission.
An uproar rose from amidst the attending people, as they just witnessed the rumored sprite-like princess’ loveliness right in front of their eyes.
Marietta’s deep blue pupils are sparkling due to her happiness for becoming husband and wife with the person she loves, and they are gazing at Belvant, full of love.
Belvant, who saw Marietta’s face dyed in a faint pink, tried to endure his urge to escape while carrying her under his arms, then pushing her down somewhere else.
[God Madigard is watching, so you shouldn’t conduct yourself in a shameful manner.]
Since Belvant’s face distorted into an extreme fiendish one in order to suppress his desire, the people sensed an intimidating atmosphere that sent chills down their spines.
Towards that kind of Belvant, Marietta slightly tilted her head and murmured out of her curiosity.
[She is very adorable, yet at the same time she’s also fearless towards the General, what a bold bride she truly is!]
[As expected of the person who’s to become General Fargus’ wife, she is not just your ordinary woman with average level of bravery.]
The people are admiring Marietta, but the person herself has her ‘lovey-dovey filter’, so she simply views any kind of Belvant as her gallant and dreamy man.
“You won’t give me the wedding kiss1?”
Due to Marietta’s sweet whisper, for an instant, Belvant’s reasoning flew out of his mind.
“Marietta, I love you!”
As he pulled his bride’s waist firmly with his arm towards himself, the God Madigard who was watching the whole scene from somewhere else reflexively grinned, “OH!2” as the two shared their passionate kiss.
After the bride and the bridegroom exited the venue, they rode the carriage specifically used for the occasion of their marriage that was waiting for them outside.
Fortunately for Marietta, her assistant, Sierra also rode the carriage along with them, and she managed to avoid being devoured greedily by Belvant who was feeling dizzy due to his worldly desires.
For some reason, she couldn’t let him off her hook. 3
Once the carriage returned to the royal palace, after taking a short recess, this time, they went to ride on the carriage prepared for the purpose of parade.
It is a two-horse cart that doesn’t have any roof in order to make it light weight, and was particularly designed to further elaborate its elegance, polished up until it’s glossy.
The ones in charge of front and rear guard were none other than the Oltaire’s chivalric order who mounted on their horses.
Adorned in the tight-designed military uniforms, they look extremely gallant. When the maids and the lady attendants at the royal palace who were watching attentively towards the parade’s preparations looked at those gallant figures, perhaps a few seeds of love have started to bud inside their hearts.
Finally, the carriage descended from the royal palace and headed for the town.
As the parade advanced through the spatious road which was also used for the usual triumphal route, there were already people awaiting them along the way.
Each and every one of them has a slick face brimming with vigour, as they have received the blessing from God Madigard.
“General Fargus, congratulations!”
“Princess Marietta, kyaaaaa, so pretty! So cute-!”
Belvant who was already used to triumphal parade just nodded and waved his hand towards the people, complete with his usual intense expression and smile.
Marietta who experienced such a parade held at the large street and being in front of so many people for the first time, at first she was bewildered, but when she stealthily nestled her body closer to the calm Belvant, she felt relieved.
Each time the people along the route called out to her, Marietta would look their way and smile cheerfully. The citizens of Oltaire whose greetings were answered by the beautiful sprite-like princess’ waving hands, found themselves in a middle of a daze.
The old people heard a lot of rumors going about the marriage and were worried for General Fargus just as they would for their own grandchildren. However, upon meeting the bride who was more than what they expected, they were deeply moved and shed tears of joy.
“Oh my, for everyone to be this overjoyed. Thank you, people of Oltaire.”
Since the old people have regained their vigour back due to God Madigard’s blessings, they were able to go outside to greet Marietta. Towards Marietta’s smile and waved hands, they assumed the posture of praying4.
After taking a turn around the city, the parade’s line returned to the royal palace.
Next to follow was the wedding reception.
Marietta parted ways with Belvant and were escorted by Sierra to return to the room.
It is so she can change her clothes.
Taking off her heavy ceremonial dress, this time she’s changed into a light dress with light blue color and a pale chiffon on top of the light blue base.
After letting down her hair, it was styled in a half-upswept hairstyle which made her fluffy curled hair stand out.
As for the ornament, it would certainly be the diamond of Oltaire.
In addition, there are also small tiara, necklace, and earrings which were elegantly designed using plenty of small diamonds. All the accessories reflected the glittering light around Marietta’s face.
“Princess Marietta, you look very beautiful. As if you just came straight out of a romance novel.”
(T/N: Well, she is indeed the main heroine in a romance novel, yup, yup.)
“My, thank you, Sierra. I wonder if it would be alright for me to stand beside Sir Belvant with this? I mean, that person is extremely dreamy, so…”
“Yeah, it’s perfect, perfect, the princess is magnificent no matter through what angle you’re seeing her. I even believe that the general would fall in love again once he sees the princess’ beauty. Or rather, I believe it would be better if we were to blindfold the general in order to restrain him from doing anything reckless.”
“Uh, really, Sierra.”
Marietta who didn’t realize that she would always shake Belvant’s reasoning herself, only laughed in amusement over Sierra’s words.
And so, the wedding reception was a great success as it splendidly turned out to be an enjoyable banquet surrounding the bride and the groom. Despite that, the time has eventually come for the banquet to end.
It’s time for everyone to exit.
Then, it’s time for them to prepare for their first night.
The guests tried to just let their gazes pass through the bride as naturally as possible during the banquet, but in the end, their gazes couldn’t leave the adorable Marietta.
Belvant who’s lost his patience, regained his spirit and pushed his way through the swarming guests all around Marietta, then suddenly hugged her with one of his arms.
It’s a pose that the royal palace’s people are familiar with.
“Marietta, let’s go.”
As the innocent bride reached and hugged Belvant’s neck, the laughs and voices from their surroundings that said, “Oh my, oh my,” could be heard.
“Well then, please excuse us.”
After bowing down to the guests, the sturdy bridegroom held the bride in his arms and exited the venue.
Now then, be zealous to your heart’s content.
Belvant and Marietta, along with Sierra rode in the carriage and headed to Belvant’s residence.
From now on, Marietta will be living in his residence as the landlady.
The maids who have been working for Marietta at the royal palace were dispatched from Stellaus, and after the bridal procession, they would be working exclusively for Marietta in Belvant’s residence. Since they have arrived slightly early, they are now waiting for Marietta and the others to arrive at Fargus’ house.
“Thank you for your hard work. Well then, General Fargus, see you later.”
“…Just a little bit longer.”
“Women have a lot of dress-up to do, so, see, you, la-ter!”
Sierra quickly declared to Belvant, who seemed reluctant to be apart from Marietta.
The servants of the Fargus’ house whispered to one another, “As expected from the maid who’s accompanying the princess, her appeal is different from the others!” as they witnessed the state of the husband who’s withdrawing with sorrowful eyes.
“Oh dear, what a lovely room it is!”
Marietta raised her voice of joy as she put her hands together in front of her bosom upon seeing the lovely interoir integrated with a romantic ambience.
The furniture’s design is based on the trending curvy and soft types, and the cushion and linen’s style is frilled and laced style, adding a bit to the sweet ambience.
“The door at the inner part of this room is connected to the Lord’s room. Madam’s private room was adorned in girly interior according to the Lord’s instruction, how do you like it?”
“Yes, of course! I wonder why would Sir Belvant know that I like things this way. As expected from my husband!”
Of course, Sierra was the one who threw all detailed information about Marietta’s preference to Belvant.
She wrote a ‘Marietta Report’, and Belvant tried to memorize its content with more seriousness than any other work.
As Adlan witnessed Belvant’s figure as he grumbled the content in the office, Adlan shrieked, “Stop it-, even I want to memorize Sierra’s preference, too!”
After some time looking around the room where she will be living in from now on, Marietta took off her dress and took a bath.
Since she would be doing her first night after this, the maids washed her body and hair neatly, rubbed her entire body with a fragant flower-scented perfumed oil, and massaged her.
Marietta’s smooth white skin was fully lustrous, and there isn’t a single hint of her being worn out due to the ceremony.
The clothes put on her is a thin night-clothes.
Although the clothes is abundant of frills and laces, there is also a moderate amount of exposure in order to display Marietta’s charm that can excite a male’s instinct. For the newly-wed’s convenience, there is also a ribbon on the bosom part of the clothes, designed so that when it’s pulled, oh my, what a wonder, the clothes would get taken off in the blink of an eye.
With the maids and Sierra’s hands, Marietta has been fully cooked that she looked tasty… that’s not it, Marietta who’s all prepared, laid her hands on the knob of the door connecting to her husband’s room with her heart beating fast.
“Then, Sierra, I’m off!”
“It’s alright, Princess. Just leave it all to General Fargus. In addition, I consider General Fargus would remain unperturbed even if you were to hit, scratch, or bite him, so it’s perfectly fine for you to do anything you want.”
“If you feel like it.”
“I’m not going to have a quarrel, you know?”
As she tilted her head in confusion, Marietta opened the door.
Belvant who had taken off his formal marriage outfit and taken a bath, is now waiting impatiently for when Marietta would come.
Thinking that he would just scare Marietta if she were to see his impatient condition, he drank a lot of sake cups and basked himself in cold water in order to calm himself down. Despite all that, his muscles would regain their passion in no time, as his body was feeling hot.
As his hand reached out to more sake in order to distract his mind, he halted while thinking, ‘No, no, there is no way I could risk myself by unfastening my reasoning limit.’
At last, when he just began loitering around the bedroom just like a bear, the sound of the door opening could be heard as the door was opened from the next room.
In front of his excessively adorable new wife who left the bedroom hurriedly with her good smell, Belvant stood up there with reddening cheeks.
He quickly approached her, then locked her in his arms.
Without knowing, he let out his enthusiastic voice and carried her under his arms, took her to the bedroom and laid Marietta down on the spacious bed.
“Uhm, Sir Belvant.”
Realizing that Belvant’s gazing at her with a more passionate gaze compared to the usual one, Marietta wriggled as she was overwhelmed by her own feelings.
“I just thought that I’d like to greet you.”
“Is it necessary?”
Belvant tried to pay no heed to Marietta, but then he recalled the Marietta Report.
[Princess Marietta loves romantic ambience the most. Please, by no means, never rush on your desire to attack her.]
No, no, you have to avoid doing things that Marietta hates.
He reconsidered and sat on the bed.
Marietta also got up, sitting next to him, and gazed up at Belvant’s face.
“Dear husband, by all means, be affectionate with me for many years to come, please.”
She is just too cute!
She looks even cuter like this!
Belvant held down his nose and bent his reddening face.
[My bride is way too cute, it’s tough!]
Unaware of Belvant’s thoughts, Marietta clung to his arms.
Feeling the round tenderness that he nurtured, Belvant’s heart beat even faster.
“Sir Belvant, I’m so happy.”
“I’m also happy. Marietta, I love you. I vow that I will continue to love you for all eternity.”
Belvant gently kissed the world’s most adorable wife whose eyes were wet due to her being deeply moved.
Thank you for waiting, General Belvant!

- It literally means kiss of vow, but since it’s kinda awkward in English, I phrased it as wedding kiss. ↩
- Originally in English ↩
- Actually, if I were to understand the sentence literally, for some reason it didn’t add up to the paragraph. Here is the original Japanese sentence: なぜかずっと膝から降ろしてもらえなかったが。 ↩
- If it’s not clear yet, the praying posture is often used to express gratitude. ↩
