3 Works in Lucy Heartfilia & Freed Justine
On her first visit to Dreyar Manor, there were three things that Lady Mirajane Strauss was certain of.
First and foremost was the fact that her actions that day were a shameless breach of noble pleasantries that would surely prompt whispers among her family’s peers.
Second, was her parents knew that it was so, they did not care - or maybe they did, but they were willing to risk it. They had willingly sent - ordered - their eldest daughter to enter the lion’s den and be devoured whole.
The third and last, was that she came anyway. She was hesitant and terrified, but she was also resolute.
Her parents may have sent her for the Mad Duke, but Lady Mirajane made herself go for a chance to meet the swordsman with the beautiful long hair and deep blue eyes.

“This is Freed.” was how the Duke introduced the young man to her. “I am not fond of sharing him, but I will do so with you. Feel special yet?”
Duke Dreyar invited her to come over for a cup of afternoon tea, and then promptly left her with his secretary. And there she was - Lucy Heartfilia, all sixteen years of her noble education, good manners, social graces and prestigious upbringing already cemented into her being… and she still did not quite know how to handle the man before her.
