Is the Lost Princess Unexpectedly Loved? – Chapter 129

𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝟏𝟐𝟗

Without eating a meal, I shut myself in the bedroom, continually thinking about the same thing.

No answer came. . .

If. . .I implemented this plan,

And if asked why I knew such a thing,

If everyone found out that I was a witch in my previous life,

If Chris and Kyle ended up hating me. . .what should I do?

I couldn’t speak at that moment when I thought so.

I was thinking about how to avoid going to war with Kokodia all this time.

I thought I had a good idea, but 

It was difficult to explain without talking about my previous life.

I wanted to make it look like I came up with the idea by reading old documents I bought from Ahrens,

But the job as a royal proxy was busy, and I didn’t get to read much.

Besides, Kyle said that he had read most of the documents.

I don’t think that just because I read them, something that hasn’t been known so far will become apparent.

No matter how I thought about it, I couldn’t come up with an excuse.

“May I come in?”

I heard a voice from outside the bedroom door. It was Kyle’s voice.

“I’m here too. Princess, may we enter?”

“Hey, don’t open it on your own.”

It seems Chris is there too.

Before I could reply, Chris opened the door, and Kyle stopped him.

“What’s the matter?”

“It’s not ‘what’s the matter?’

We came to check on you because you’re locked in your room without eating.”

“Here, you can at least drink the soup, right?”

What was on the tray was potato potage.

Next to it were roasted nut sweets on a small plate.

Although I hadn’t felt hungry until now, my stomach growled the moment I saw that.

“See? It’s not good to think on an empty stomach.”

“. . .Yeah. I’ll eat.”

I took the tray, scooped up the potato soup with a spoon.

As I put it in my mouth, the usual gentle taste flowed down my throat.

Delicious. . .

When I started eating, the two of them looked relieved.

I may have worried them by shutting myself up without saying anything.

I don’t want to be hated by Chris and Kyle, who are always by my side like this.

But if there’s a war, there will be deaths.

I can remain silent about it since I don’t want my past life to be known.

Since no one knows, there’s no need to be blamed.

If we go to war, if the land is ravaged, if there are deaths,

Will I be able to remain calm if this country is no longer peaceful?

Can I calmly take Chris and Kyle’s hands?

“Hey, Princess. You’re trying to do something, aren’t you?”

“Eh?”

“I knew that Sofia was deep in thought.

Trying various things to avoid going to war with Kokodia as well.

. . .Even though the situation is so pressing,

There must be a reason for stopping the preparations for war with Kokodia, right?”

“. . .Why?”

Why do Chris and Kyle know?

I stopped scooping the soup and looked at them.

“You know? Princess, your thoughts are more apparent than you think.”

“Eh? Is it showing on my face?”

“No, it’s not showing on your face at all.”

Before I could say, “then why?” I was shown by Kyle.

“Look, your magic is leaking. . . .When something happens to Sofia, it affects her magic.”

“No way!”

“It’s true. Look.”

When I looked at my hand, I could indeed see that the magic was leaking.

. . .Eh? Has it always been like this?

“. . .Calm down. I’m not telling you to share everything that’s bothering you.

But, I can see that you’re trying to do something and that you’re worried about it.

Are you worried that it might not succeed?”

“. . .No, I think it will succeed.”

“Then don’t worry anymore.”

“Huh?”

Don’t worry? But, even if you say that. . .

“Kyle, I, and everyone else will obey if the Princess says so.

No one will object.

No matter how absurd the strategy is, if the Princess says it will succeed.”

“You won’t object?”

“Yeah. Up to now, everyone understands what Sofia has done.

We know that she doesn’t act without thinking.

It’s okay. You think it will succeed, right?

We won’t stop you. Believe in us.”

“Believe in Kyle? Believe in Chris?. . .”

“We promised to be with you until the end.”

“We said we would protect this country together with Princess and Kyle.

Please try to trust us a little more.”

I want to believe in them. That they will be with me no matter what happens.

But, I’m scared. Because I love them both.

“Come on, it’s already late at night. Eat this, and let’s sleep together.”

“Together? Both of you will be with me?”

“If we leave you alone, you’ll probably think about unpleasant things.

We’ll sleep beside you, so go to sleep.”

“Come on, finish eating the rest.”

Being told that, I scooped the soup into my mouth, and I was about to cry with relief.

After I finished eating everything, I was patted on the head and praised,

Then lifted up and put to bed.

My right hand was held by Chris, my left hand by Kyle,

I fell asleep while being stroked on the head many times.

. . .Can I believe it? Is it okay?

No matter what happens, the two of them won’t leave me.

In the morning, when I woke up, the two were still beside me.

The doubt hasn’t disappeared, but my mind is made up.

“Once preparations are ready, we’ll go to the audience chamber.”
