I thought that it would be over once this matter was settled, but it turned out that this wasn't the end just yet.
After all, when one person obtained the thing that others wanted, they would become jealous.
Once they became jealous, they would act irrationally.
The news of my engagement with the princess was hidden from most people, but those with a certain amount of power were able to find out something as simple as this.
Specifically, there were three that were very incited because of this.
After my engagement with the princess was settled, we went to have a meal to celebrate both this and the deal that we had made with the various representatives. We had just united this area and there was no doubt that we would earn a large amount from this.
So the celebration was naturally something that had to be held.
But of course, we didn't make too big of a fuss over this matter.
Instead of holding a large celebration, it was just a small celebration between the people of my inner circle.
Or at least that was what it was supposed to be…
But there was someone that suddenly slapped the table when she came in and said, "You're getting engaged to the princess?"
I was caught off guard when I heard this before looking at this person with a strange look.
I couldn't understand why they had such a strong reaction to me getting engaged to the princess.
After looking at them for a bit, I slowly gave a nod and said, "That's right, is something wrong?"
That person gritted her teeth as she narrowed her eyes to look at me.
I couldn't help feeling very strange about this as she looked at me.
After all, she was looking at me with an aggrieved look.
It was almost as if I had done something to wrong her, though I couldn't really think of anything that I had done to wrong her.
After a long silence, Veronica suddenly said, "Marry me too."
"Huh?" I couldn't help saying with a shocked look on my face.Please visit fr𝐞𝐞wn.𝒸o𝔪 website to read fastest update
I just looked at her with this shocked look on my face for a while before suddenly asking, "What did you say? I didn't seem to hear it clearly."
When I asked this, there was a blush that appeared on Veronica's face. However, she still said, "I said marry me." Then she said in a softer voice, "Making me say it a second time, it seems like he really likes putting girls in tough situations."
There was a bitter smile that crept on my face when I heard the latter part of her words, but I calmed myself down and asked, "Why are you suddenly asking me to marry you? Are you also in a difficult situation where you need me as a shield?"
Veronica gave a sigh before saying, "Why would I ask you to marry me for that?"
At the same time, I saw that Rose, Cecilia, Haley, and even the princess were shaking their heads with their hands on their faces. They also let out exasperated sighs, as if they couldn't deal with me anymore.
I just revealed an even more confused look seeing all of this.
Veronica looked right at me and said, "I want to marry you because I like you. Why else would I ask you to marry me?"
"Oh." That was all I could say.
When two different girls confessed to me in a day, it really short circuited my brain.
Especially since both of them were girls that had high statuses.
One was the princess and the other was the daughter of a duke…
These identities couldn't be looked down on.
But it still wasn't done yet.
"I also want to be included in that."
There were two voices that came from the entrance.
When I turned to look in that direction, I was surprised by who was standing there.
It was Moon and Elsa.
I looked at the two of them with a very strange look as I asked, "Included in what?"
"Marrying you." The two of them said with straight looks on their faces.
It didn't seem like they were joking, so I was even more shocked.
After all, we were from different races.
Would they really want to marry a human like me?
But here they were saying that they did which I couldn't help being shocked by.
After a long period of silence, I slowly asked, "Are you serious?"
Both of them had no hesitation at all as they nodded in agreement.
The look of shock on my face deepened when I saw this.
I didn't know what to say, but there was a part of me that wanted to run after seeing all of this.
I wasn't a person that was very popular in my past life, so I thought that I was already very lucky with the three wives that I had.
But now that my popular period has come, I really don't know how to handle it…
So all I could do was stand there with a stunned look on my face, looking like an idiot.
Slowly, I turned to look at Rose as if I was asking her for help.
But all she did was shake her head as if she was saying, "You're on your own for this one."
It was the same for Cecilia and Haley.
I was surprised to find that not a single one of them were surprised by the proposals made by these three. It was as if they already knew about their feelings and just didn't say anything to me.
Though I'm sure that they would have had their own difficulties.
It wasn't as if they could just tell me about their feelings for them…
Seeing that I didn't say anything, Veronica came forward and said, "Well, what's your answer?"
When she pressured me like this, I turned to look at her with a dazed look.
Seeing this, Veronica revealed a worried look and said, "Do you not like me?"
At the same time, Moon and Elsa also came forward with the same worried looks.
