br>Unlike anyone else, no matter how noble or prestigious of a family he came from, he did not get cocky or wanted to stand out.

Our conversation, which we had only thought of catching up for a while, took longer than expected.
Then Logan suddenly stood up.

“I’m going to get some fresh air.”

Heidi lowered her voice right after Logan left.

“Lady Nelson.”

She turned around to make sure Logan was completely out, she then asked me.

“Are you sure he is a commoner?”

It was only then that I understood Heidi’s reaction a while back.
She did not believe that Logan was a commoner.

She was the first to doubt this.
The restaurant I went to with Logan, the tea house, and the small garden at the library.
How many times had we met outside? And wherever we went, the nobility was always there.

But Logan’s face was not well known, so no one suspected him as a duke.

However, no matter how much Logan dressed like a commoner and claimed to be one, he was still a noble.

Whenever he said that he would treat me to a meal, he took me to restaurants that ordinary people would never dream of setting foot in.
Additionally, he used the tableware and utensils in an elegant manner.
Logan’s disguise was too sloppy.

And above all, wasn’t his attitude too bold? If I was strict about status like Daisy, it would definitely bother me.
Even now, he was not intimidated by Heidi at all.
No wonder Heidi doubted him.

But I pretended not to know because I was determined to keep his secret.

Definitely a commoner.
Is there something wrong?”

“There is something noble about him.
It made me feel like I shouldn’t act carelessly around him.”

Heidi’s intuition was quite sharp.

“Is he though? Maybe it’s just because he is good-looking.”

“I don’t mean that, rather…”

“What were you talking about?”

All of a sudden, we heard Logan’s voice from behind.
We almost had a heart attack.
Heidi was so startled that she immediately yanked herself away from me.

No, Heidi.
I think you don’t have to be that far away from me … Isn’t that even more suspicious?

“Nothing much.
We were just talking about lady Chloe’s salon.”

I answered.
Heidi was busy looking at Logan so it might be difficult to expect a proper answer from her.

Certain enough, there was a limit to Logan’s disguise.
I parted with Heidi and made my way back to the library with Logan.
I fell into deep thought along the way.

Would Heidi be the only one who doubts whether he really is a commoner?

He was so unique from the way he looked, how could he not be noticed? Had Heidi memorised the genealogy perfectly, or had she remembered that Duke Harrison’s eyes were red, he might have been caught for real.
Because red was the characteristic colour of the Harrison.

Just as I thought so, I noticed that the eyes of a passerby were also red.
Yes, it was rare, but it was definitely a colour present among commoners as well.
Still, this external shell, wasn’t it too insecure and lacking in many ways?

It couldn’t stay like this.
Something had to be done.

“What are you thinking about?”

Seeing I was silent, Logan, who was walking next to me, asked.
I stumbled over my words.

“I was just…I wasn’t thinking about anything.”

“It’s just like when we saw the rain.”
