Special bonus SS for e-version
A gift from a villainess to a duke’s son
The season was about to change from autumn to winter while Claudia was enjoying a leisurely life after the Fermina case was settled.
As the air in their lungs begins to feel colder, an event comes to mind.
It is the “confetti,” when women present handmade sweets to men.
This event was held for both nobles and commoners alike, but among the nobles, chocolate was the most common gift.
As soon as the confetti started, Claudia also sent chocolates to those who had helped her.
Of course, Virgil’s name was one of the recipients, but as a punishment for spying on the chocolate-making process, he gave the chocolates to Virgil last.
However, the order is only in Claudia’s mind, and the confetti itself is still going on.
(I wonder if other people would not believe their eyes if they saw this.)
I almost laughed at the pathetic expression on my brother’s face.
It was no wonder he was called the Ice Prince.
In Virgil’s sunny room, the two were sitting down to tea.
The room, with its large windows, is decorated in a calm atmosphere.
The overall color saturation is low, and the only vivid images are those of the flowers in the vase. They seemed to have been prepared for Claudia’s visit today.
The room seems small for its size, perhaps because it is furnished with the bare minimum of furniture.
(The desk is neat and tidy, just like the student council room.)
Virgil, the president of the student council, did not leave a single sheet of paper on his desk except during busy times such as school festivals.
Perhaps the lack of cumbersomeness makes the space seem even larger than it is.
(It’s not that you don’t like waste, but rather that you are not interested in interior design.)
Claudia would have wanted to redecorate regularly, but Virgil did not seem to have such a thought.
His tidiness was a sign of his meticulous nature.
Looking at him in front of her, she could see that he was not lacking in material desires.
Since Claudia’s visit, Virgil’s eyes have not left Claudia’s hand. Or, more precisely, from the wrapped chocolates.
“Are you sure I’m the last?”
“Yes, my brother is the last.”
Yes, I’m sure,” Claudia nodded firmly.
“More importantly, after you’ve given the extra chocolates to the servants as well.”
“I didn’t want to know. ……!”
Virgil’s head was in his hands when he realized that he had given them to Louise at the tea party the other day, and that it was the last time he would give them to her. He would never look in on Claudia again.
“If it had only been Helen, we would have an alliance and I could still stand it…”
“Alliance? What alliance?
“Never mind, I’m talking about this one.”
Is it human nature to become even more concerned when someone says something like that?
However, seeing Virgil seriously devastated, Claudia avoided pursuing the matter.
“Last in line, but I love you.
“And that’s below Sil, isn’t it?”
“Don’t be afraid of me, Claudia. There are different kinds of love.
Love for the opposite s*x and love for one’s family are two completely different things. I don’t want to be compared to them.
“I appreciate your concern, but there is a fine line between what is right and what is wrong.
“You’re so right, I can’t even think about it. I’m sorry.
“Your remorse is enough for me. Please enjoy your chocolate.
I don’t want to open it.
“It will keep for a while, but… ……
Chocolate does not ripen like fruit, so the sooner you eat it, the better.
Chocolate is not good to eat too early, because the oil will separate from the chocolate after a few days.
“I wonder if Dee did the wrapping too?”
“I chose the colors of the ribbons, too.”
Black and blue had become the colors of brother and sister.
The ribbon is a double ribbon with a double loop.
The inside is the opposite of Helen’s, and is made of dark chocolate with a bitter taste.
(They are all squares, but they are the most laborious to make.)
Sylvester’s took longer to sort, but the production time was the same as the others.
The reason for the time taken was the engraving of the Duke of Lindsay’s coat of arms on the surface.
After the chocolate had hardened, the engravings were pressed one by one. If the engravings were too hot, they would burn, and if the pressure was too strong, the chocolate would rise as if distorted and the engravings would not be beautiful.
(I underestimated it because it was only for my brother. ……)
Many times during the process I thought about leaving it to the cook, but Claudia did it. The cook melts down the failed batch and reuses it to make chocolates for the servants.
“Dee is good with her hands!”
Virgil stroked the ribbon so gently that Claudia was tickled.
（I can’t believe how much he cares for me.)
She learned that Virgil, who is described as a nobleman of ice outside, is a warm person at heart.
As proof of this, the way he looked at Claudia was overflowing with love.
Regardless of the order in which he gives the chocolates, it is clear that he is pleased with them.
“Thank you, brother, for everything.”
“What’s wrong all of a sudden?”
“I just wanted to tell you how I feel. I am happy to be your sister.
Before the regression, I had been inadequate and did not know Virgil’s personality.
（He is a compassionate person.)
Not only Claudia, but also Sylvester and Tristan are important to Virgil. He is like a brother to them.
He protects those whom he decides to protect.
That’s why he showed so much severity at the time of the absolution.
At Claudia’s words, Virgil blinked his eyes and then broke into a face.
His expression, mixed with embarrassment, made even his own sister swoon.
(I never thought my brother would make such a pretty face. ……!)
(I can’t believe my brother looks so cute!) His smile reminded me of a boy’s, as if he had returned to his childhood.
“I’m happy to be Dee’s brother.”
He patted her gently on the head, and now Claudia beamed.
He felt comforted by the large hand.
Virgil’s eyebrows drop at Claudia, who is understandably unguarded.
“There’s just one thing that troubles me…”
“Oh, what is it?”
“Oh, what’s that?” “I’ve become so discerning, I find ordinary daughters are just not enough.”
That’s hard to say.
On the other hand, if you are no longer fooled by the tricks of women, that’s good news.
“Your brother’s love life is not going well, is it?”
So can I interrupt your relationship with Sil?
What’s the “so” in that?
It’s fine that Dee is happy, but it doesn’t make sense that she’s happy.
What do you mean by that?
“You see, he’s …… a bit of a character, isn’t he? He’s a bit of a tightrope.
“That’s disrespectful. I don’t deny it.
Sylvester’s enjoyment of human ugliness cannot be corrected, even by Claudia.
“And yet you’re the only one who’s ever managed to make love happen!”
Please put my sister’s happiness first.
I always have the best interest of my sister in mind.
“You seem to be contradicting yourself.”
Virgil snarls and smiles.
“I don’t want to interrupt you, but it’s my prerogative as an Alexandria resident to complain to you, Sir.”
Virgil’s eyes light up when Claudia gives her permission.
Sorry Sylvester, but it is an inevitable part of being a family.
“But brother, you’ll miss your marriage if you’re so backward, won’t you?
I’ll leave my marriage to the Whimsical God.
“The fickle god is so called because he is fickle. ……”
I wonder if the marriage of the next duke can be that reluctant.
Claudia could not help but think that instead of a reduced chance of being cheated by a woman, a new problem has arisen.
