Chapter 5│Read translated stories and daily updates at: Awebstories.com
His Royal Highness denied not only his current relationship with the Duchess, but also any mention of a previous life.
He was never unfaithful,
He was always devoted to Violet, and that woman is just a stalker, he said desperately.
His Highness Aaron, who was denying with all his might, didn’t seem to be lying at all, and we had a frank discussion about the past and the present.
If you pay close attention, you will find that at present, it seems that Duchess Caroline Wimberly is always nearby, but that is because she is the sister of the Duke’s son, Dylan Wimberly, a candidate for the entourage!
She’s always coming to see Dylan during her breaks, and when she says she’s coming to see Dylan, His Highness Aaron can’t stop her, so it’s like she’s always around.
He doesn’t like her, he doesn’t love her, he’s not his lover and he has no plans to get engaged!
And what’s more shocking!!!
In a previous life, he and that girl were not lovers or anything!!!
Her parents wanted to be related to Baron Lindley, a powerful man in the area, and they were keen to get them together!!!
And it seems that she was also very attracted to the former Soleil, who was a handsome man, and she lied to his friends, the boys, that she and he were together, that they were lovers!
Because she was so beautiful and fragile in her previous life, no one thought she was lying.
In fact, she was just a persistent stalker who followed him around all the time!!
You’re lying, right!?
At his funeral, when I was going through a tough time because of the separation from my beloved husband, she gave me a hard time and beat me to a pulp, but I can’t believe it was all her lie!
After that, I spent decades of my life in silent remembrance of him, but I couldn’t even visit his grave, and I had to endure for several decades……
Give it back~!!!!
I made up my mind and asked again.
“Didn’t Sir Soleil really not want to get engaged!?”
“Did I look like a man you would be reluctant to marry!”
He replied with a somewhat stern look on his face, and I was annoyed.
“Because you couldn’t have refused a proposal from the Marquis of Abel back then.”
“It’s true, back then I couldn’t have refused.
But all those years with Violet, did I seem unhappy to you?
Did I look unhappy with you!”
He looked into my eyes and I flinched.
“…No, you didn’t.
Because you were always so kind to me and I thought you loved me, so when she told me the truth at the funeral, I was so shocked… I couldn’t believe it at first… I was so sad.”
When I replied, His Highness Aaron denied it with a straight face.
“There is no truth to it. It’s true that the Marquis asked me to marry her, but Soleil fell in love with Violet right away. If I hadn’t died of illness like that, I would have wanted to stay by her side for the rest of my life and continue to love her!”
When he said this so gently, my tears broke out again.
“Soleil-sama, I’m sorry, I’m sorry.
I’m sorry I doubted you, I’m sorry.”
I cried as I grabbed His Highness Aaron’s expensive clothes and held on to them until they were soaked.
“That’s enough, I get it, I get what you’re saying, that’s what they made you think.
I can’t blame you for thinking that.
I’m sorry for all the pain you’ve had to endure in the decades since Soleil died, and even since you were reborn.
I’ll protect you from now on.
So let’s get married.”
He stroked my cheek.
“Hmm? Did you just say you’ll marry me!?”
I was so surprised that my tears receded.
I regained my bearings and looked at His Highness Aaron.
“Oh, what’s so funny?
It’s been my dream since my last life to marry you again and be with you this time.
I can’t stand to be apart from you any longer, I want to live with you right now.”
His Highness smiled and said,
I don’t know what you are talking about.
“W-Well, I mean, I’m glad you feel that way, but it’s really impossible!”
I can’t help but give a tight smile.
“Huh!? Why is it impossible?
I’m still in love with you! You’re not Lilina?”
I don’t need to be told that.
I love you, but until just now, I’ve been trying to keep you from knowing that I exist.
I don’t know what marriage is.
“Of course, um, I like you too, but you’re a prince, aren’t you, Aaron?
I’m just a boring baker’s daughter. It’s not even close.
There’s no way we can get married!”
“What are you talking about? In my previous life, Soleil and Violet had a big difference in status too.
Don’t you know how many times Soleil was accused of being a scoundrel!”
It’s hard to hear you say that.
In her previous life, Violet fell in love with Soleil at first sight and insisted on marrying him.
Her relatives were very annoyed.
“That’s right… I’m sure they would have told you… though of course it never reached my ears.”
“I guess we’re destined to be different.
But in my previous life, the Marquis of Abel wanted Soleil so much that we were able to get married, right?
It’s the same in this life. If the royal family strongly desires you, it will come true.
I will make sure that you will be my bride, so be prepared.”
His Highness says this with confidence, but I don’t believe it at all.
I’m just Lillina, a baker’s daughter.
I’m sorry, but the naive young lady is gone.
I know the world well enough.
“Eh~~~? I don’t think that’s possible…
Do you understand your position, Your Highness Aaron?
I think the hurdles for a Marquess and a baron’s third son are completely different from those for a prince and a baker’s daughter.”
I said this as if I was making fun of a selfish child, but His Highness Aaron didn’t budge at all.
“It doesn’t matter.
It’s been decided since my previous life that you and I will get married, so it can’t be changed.
All right, let’s make this short. I’ll take you back to the palace now.”
“What? I can’t! You can’t just say that out of the blue!!”
“Because it’s okay! Come on!”
And with that, His Highness Aaron pulled me outside again, and this time pushed me into a carriage.
The carriage departed without regard for my will, and soon we arrived at the royal palace near the school.
I was worried that the king and queen would be very surprised and angry if he brought home a commoner’s daughter without warning and said I wanted to marry her~
What should I do?
I was worried about it, but it was easily solved☆.
To my surprise, the king and queen were the Marquis and Marquess of Abel, who were my parents!
The moment I saw them, I cried out!
“Father! Mother!” I ran to them and we hugged each other, happy to see each other again.
The King, Queen and Aaron all had memories of their former lives, but they couldn’t say anything that crazy, and each of them kept them to themselves.
“Do you remember me too!?” and so we confessed to each other.
So the problem of status differences was easily solved… I wanted to say that, but it was not so easy.
Just because the king, queen, and the prince himself are okay with it, doesn’t mean that the nobles of the world will easily agree.
There were some twists and turns, such as graduating from the school at the top of the class, becoming able to use the light magic, going with His Highness Aaron to kill the demons that appeared in the remote areas, and before I knew it, I was called a saint and was adopted by the Duchess of Wolfsburg in honor of my various achievements, and so on and so forth.
Finally, today, I’m getting married.
The whole country is in an uproar that a former baker’s daughter is getting married to a prince.
I’m just a commoner in this life, but since I was a lady in my previous life, I think I’ll be able to manage even if I marry into the royal family.
Above all, I want us both to live long and happy lives this time.
Sorry to keep you waiting, Soleil.
I’m finally here.
