Chapter Two: The Midnight Clandestine Meeting
After dinner the maids prepared Riz’s bed and left the room.
The time was around nine at night. It was later than the time she usually slept.
A yawn leaked out but her mind was clear. Riz rolled over on top of her bed and lay face down.
The full-blown social season was about to begin. For the majority of aristocrats who were busy playing at love it was the time for victory or defeat; however, it had no relation to Riz who would grow dizzy with just one dance.
She was exploring solutions here and there to save John when a small clunk echoed.
Saijou Touji (西条 凍時)
—The real despair begins from here.
On her way home, the heroine was suddenly abducted, confined, and raped by Saijou Touji.
She wondered if her confined life was going to continue forever like this and let herself be assaulted as if she gave up, but on that day— Touji, who was in an exceedingly good mood, abruptly told her “We’re going to get a blessing for marriage today”.
The heroine was placed in a car, all the while feeling baffled.
For it was said their destination was the heroine’s home.
She held a fleeting hope that she would finally be free, but Touji had completely removed any obstacles in the way of his objective and began to talk to her kindhearted father with the face of an agreeable young man.
These circumstances, where she could only be trapped in a warped love, were days of despair, crueler than anything else in this world.
Big thank you to Criy – “bcuz even I need sleep” for the commission and dragging me back into the Kankinkon world! This is the sequel to Ryoujoku no Hibi and continues Touji’s story. It can be considered the second volume in the whole Kankinkon series. You can pick it up on the English DLsite or the Japanese DLsite.

Saijou Touji (西条 凍時)
Touji: That goddamn old man! He’s still moving!? When is that poison going to take effect!?
T: Ah, apologies! I’m just speaking to my secretary about work. I’m not angry, so come here. If you won’t come… then I’ll go over there. *comes over* I’m sorry for scaring you. But just be patient for four more days. After four days… I won’t let anyone get in my way anymore.

That event could be traced back to a few days ago.
The location was the art gallery of the Houro district, which was set in the southern part of the royal capital Sprarugle.
Today Riz was also staring passionately at a book of paintings, staying inside a storehouse overflowing with art panels, painting materials, and reference books. She was sprawled out on a chaise lounge with a thin blanket over her knees.
Riz was presently the owner of this art gallery, although it was only for the period until her uncle Hine, who left for another country, returned. She could immerse herself in the world of art to her heart’s content.
She was relishing in her joy when the door to the art studio was opened from the corridor.
A man in austere clothing, sort of like a butler, entered and directly approached Riz.
“My lady, letters have arrived.”
