Huh?

The court lady who raised her hand in shock brought it down,

Realizing she had struck the wrong person, she froze in astonishment.

I couldn’t tell if the slapped cheek was painful or hot.

I was quickly embraced by Kyle and scolded by Chris.

“What are you doing! Who said it was okay to take her place!”

“I. . .I’m sorry. My body moved on its own, and I teleported without thinking. . .”

“Enough! This idiot!”

Chris put his hand on my swollen cheek, casting healing magic.

A surprised voice echoed from behind.

“Crown Princess! Why are you here!!”

“. . .eh? The Crown Princess?”

“. . .no way.”

“You struck. . .the Crown Princess?”

Chloe, who noticed me, screamed, and that made three court ladies turn pale.

The spell that had made me invisible was undone the moment I teleported.

Even if they had never seen my face, they should recognize me by my silver hair.

Striking the Crown Princess means punishment is inevitable.

It’s not just a fight among court ladies; it takes on a different meaning.

Not just the court lady, but even the supporting noble family will be punished.

“. . .Sofia. I understand how you feel, but this is not acceptable.

Why would you do something like this!”

“Uh, well. . .I’m sorry.

I didn’t mean to be slapped,

I realized I was here when I came to. . .sorry, Kyle. . . .”

I truly didn’t mean to take her place.

I knew I needed conclusive evidence to punish the court ladies.

I was the one who stood alone before Isabela, the former chief court lady for that reason.

So, I was prepared to endure even if Chloe was subjected to violence.

I knew it couldn’t be helped. I understood that in my mind.

Yet, at that moment, I was filled with anger, and before I knew it, I was standing in front of the court lady.

It wasn’t intentional, but I understand how Kyle and Chris feel.

I disregarded the feelings of the two always trying to protect me.

Now, they may not take me to dangerous places anymore.

“. . .sigh. For now, the treatment is done.

Princess, we’ll scold you later.”

“. . .yes.”

“Anyway, let’s deal with this matter first.

I’ll scold you thoroughly later.”

“. . .yes. I’m sorry.”

It seems I’ll definitely be scolded later.

. . .It can’t be helped. I’ll accept the scolding honestly.

When I tried to talk to Chloe to resolve the matter,

I noticed she looked like she was about to cry.

“. . .To be slapped in my place. . .

I really don’t know how to apologize. . . .”

“Oh, well. It’s not Chloe’s fault, so it’s okay.”

“But. . . .”

“It’s alright. I was just worried that Chloe might be mistreated by someone, and,

I knew it from the beginning.

I jumped out on my own, so I’m the one at fault.”

“Eh?”

“Except for Celine, Chloe is also writing reports on behalf of the other three court ladies, and

I realized it from the beginning.

I was aware that Chloe seemed to be receiving violence.

So, I had her under surveillance for the past two weeks.”

When I revealed that I had kept watch and spied on the court ladies,

The faces of the three court ladies turned so pale they looked like they might collapse.

They must have realized why they were called here.

When I wondered what they would do,

For some reason, all three rushed to Kyle and tried to cling to him.

“Eh?”

“Kyle-sama, please! Help us!”

“We never intended to harm the Crown Princess!”

“We usually work seriously! It’s true!”

Kyle, begged by the three, seemed too surprised to speak.

I was also surprised and looked at Chris. Chris seemed to know something, looking exasperated.

“Why are they seeking help from Kyle?!”

“Well, there was a rumor that Kyle was kind to court ladies.”

“Eh? Why?”

“It’s because of you, Princess.

Remember, you helped Ellie when she was being harassed before, right?

Back then, you had Kyle escort Ellie all the way to the Eastern Palace, didn’t you?

That’s when the rumor spread that Kyle was a kind person for helping the court lady.”

“Eh? Just for that?”

I did have Kyle send her when I helped Ellie, the court lady’s assistant.

But just for that, a rumor started that Kyle was kind to court ladies?

Eh? Could it be that because of that, Kyle is being approached instead of Chris?

I’ve never seen either Kyle or Chris be kind to women, though. . .

“Don’t come any closer to me.”

“””Eh?”””

“I won’t forgive anyone who hurt Sofia.”

“N, No way!”

“Kyle-sama is kind, isn’t he. . .”

“I’m only kind to Sofia.”

As expected, the court ladies collapse, pushed away.

I know it’s futile to cling to Kyle, but somehow I feel sorry.

I just took Chloe’s place on my own. . .

It feels wrong that the crime is getting heavier because of that.

“Kyle, can you pretend the court lady didn’t hit me?”

“What are you talking about? That’s impossible.”

“But I teleported out because of that,

And actually, she was trying to hit Chloe?

So I want you to catch her for using violence on Chloe.”

“. . .Why?”

“Because all this time, Chloe was the one who was actually being hit.

I want her to pay for hitting Chloe, bullying her,

and dumping her work on her.

If you arrest her for hitting me, it will be swept under the rug.

I want her to pay for what she did to Chloe.”

Even though Chloe had been suffering, hitting me once was considered a greater crime.

I understand that’s how it is, but I don’t want to accept it.

Realizing that I was serious, Kyle sighed.

“. . . . . .Also, the lecture is separate. I understand.

Chris, are you okay with that too?”

“. . .Can’t be helped. It’s our fault that we didn’t catch the Princess properly.

We should have anticipated and handled Princess’ outburst.”

“Sigh. Yes, that’s true. Call the royal guards.

Hey, you guys, if you don’t talk about what you did to Chloe,

You’ll be jailed for hitting Sofia.

You know what will happen then, don’t you?”

“””Yes! We’re sorry. . .”””

The three court ladies, who no longer have the strength to stand, are taken away by the royal guards.

After this, they will find out what has been done to Chloe so far and give them appropriate punishment.

I was worried about Chloe’s pale face,

But talking to Chloe will have to wait until tomorrow or later.

. . .After being taken to my private room by Kyle and Chris,

I was scolded by Lisa and Yuna, and the lecture didn’t end for quite some time.

I am reflecting on it, but. . .I really didn’t do it on purpose.
