    Why It Should Get Picked Up:

    Description: Opal gained a bad reputation because of a disgraceful rumor (a man tried to attack her at her social debut) and as a result, she was treated like a disgraceful woman and no one wanted to marry her. as she reached the age of twenty she intends to inherit the heritage from her maternal grandmother and live quietly in the countryside.

    However, one day she was ordered by her father to marry Duke Hubert, who had a debt. The house she resided in after a political marriage with the young Duke, Hubert, was full of hostility. as he believed the rumors about her and was forced to marry her for her money. and he had a mistress who is treasured by him who he claims is an "Angel"

    However, the Duchess doesn't like losing, so it won't end like this!

    I will outwit those who let their guard down...!

    This sounds like your another misunderstood "villainess" story. However, there's a thing that bugs me the most, why an attic tho?

    Just keep in mind while reading this:
    Good kids don't stuff their spouse into attics! Good kids don't stuff their spouse into attics!
    Yeah, I can see it too.
    Like all these misunderstood villainess stories go, she will prove herself as the protagonist, he will thaw like a frozen fish on a grill, the misunderstanding is resolved, he realizes who he truly loves, and finally goes head over heels for our protagonist who probably had affections for him since long ago!
    Let's just say her marriage has a twist in the end. *laughs in mtl*

    After long years of "marriage", she can only see Hubert as a little brother and they end up divorcing peacefully.

    She actually ends up with her childhood friend who was mentioned a few times.

    He regretted. Opal and him were married for seven years before they divorced. In fact just before they divorced, Hubert had asked Opal to marry him for real, but by that time she could only see him as a little brother.

    That's kinda depressing for MC. 7 years of her life gone cuase of the shallow society she lives in(bottom text). Like a man is allowed to have a mistress and no one bats an eye. But when a women is assaulted everyone assumes shes a hoe

    So dose the truth eventually come out? And what happens to the mistress?

    She does get her reputation restored due to Hubert backing her at a party she doesn't attend after they divorced, but it's more of a background happening. She doesn't really care anyways since she prefers living in the country rather than socializing in high society.

    The mistress is never gotten rid of because Hubert doesn't see her as a mistress but as a younger sister. The mistress Stella has been sick since young and she supported him emotionally when he lost his parents and such so he cherishes her as family, thus continuing to care for her and her medical bills. Opal assumes Stella's feelings are more than that of family, but Hubert holds no romantic feeling towards her.

    Woah thank you for all the spoilers. I am a huge fan of the
    "childhood friend wins" tropes but they are really few in manga / novels
    especially in love triangle settings. So I am already happy with the outcome. Thanks again for the spoilers, here's hoping it gets picked :)

    Man after reading chapter 2 I just want her to be independent. I will really flip my sh** if she ended up with him. From his reactions I can tell he has feelings for her (maybe a tiny bit) but that doesn't excuse his attitude towards her. I mean why would a woman want to marry someone who insults her and calls her a slut? Is that right? Unless she is a masochist? But that is not the plot. Even though the duke is a tsundere and very childish but f*** man, words hurt. I really wish that two won't end up together
