Holding hands and syncing our breath, I felt the strength leave her hand.

Thinking she had fallen asleep, I peered into her face, only to find her sleeping with her lips slightly parted, just as she did when she was young.

“Can’t you sleep?”

A voice came from behind Sofia, and I couldn’t help but laugh.

“You’re not asleep either, are you?”

As usual, the three of us are lying together on the bed,

Sofia is always the one who falls asleep first.

After that, neither Chris nor I care who falls asleep first.

All Chris and I care about is that Sofia sleeps.

“Tomorrow is finally the wedding.

I’m thinking Kyle might not be able to sleep, aside from the Princess.”

“. . .Why is that?”

“If there’s anything troubling you, I’m here to listen.”

He’s saying it in his usual way, but there’s no one else to talk to except Chris.

. . .Reluctantly, I begin to speak my mind bit by bit.

“I want to make Sofia happy.”

“I know.”

“Sofia says that protecting this country is her happiness, right?”

“Yes, that’s true. Princess doesn’t act selfishly about her own affairs.”

“That’s why I’m worried.”

In the dark, the voice coming back from beyond Sofia is probably understanding.

“. . .Princess doesn’t act selfishly.

Perhaps she doesn’t know what will make her happy.”

“Yes. Chris, do you remember?

Sofia’s first selfishness.”

“Yes. She said she wanted to eat a little more potato soup.

She looked hesitant, wondering if it was okay to say it.”

She was not even nine years old yet.

At that time, only His Majesty was dining with Sofia.

His Majesty was busy, and they dined together only about three times a month,

And otherwise, Sofia ate alone.

It was Chris who noticed Sofia’s endurance of never leaving food.

He felt that the meals progressed only when dining with His Majesty,

And perhaps she didn’t want to eat alone.

We were escort knights, but we wondered if it was acceptable to dine with her,

But increasing Sofia’s thin, malnourished intake was a vital issue.

That’s why His Majesty quickly approved Chris’ suggestion.

Either Chris or I must always dine with her.

Chris and I were still not at the stage of being recognized as escort knights.

Therefore, we had to receive a lot of education,

And the time the two of us could be with Sofia was limited.

By His Majesty’s order, one of us would dine with her three times a day,

And when we told her, Sofia smiled weakly.

It was the same smile as when she first ate baked sweets.

A face that seemed to smile happily from the bottom of her heart.

Since then, either Chris or I have been dining with Sofia.

Different from before, Sofia began to have seconds of what she wanted to eat,

And everyone around her was genuinely happy.

“You know. . .I want to eat a little more of this soup from tomorrow on. . .right.”

When she started to say such things, the head chef brought seconds on the spot.

Everyone present was genuinely happy for Sofia, who smiled at that.

Finally, we understood what she liked and could have her eat more.

To Sofia, who has become extremely thin and isn’t increasing her food intake,

The newly assigned head chef was distressed.

I wonder what I can do to increase her eating even just a little bit.

I wonder if she would eat if it’s something she likes.

Even now, the head chef continues to come up with new dishes while keeping an eye on Sofia’s food intake.

I want her to eat even a little, and I want her to be happy.

“I want. . .Sofia to be happy.

I want her to stop crying, I want her to smile.”

“What are you saying? That’s what you’re going to do, right?”

“I understand. That’s why I’m troubled.

How can I keep her smiling forever?

Sofia is prepared to shoulder the responsibility of this country, the life of this nation.

. . .Even though she thinks that pressure is natural, how can I. . .

Ask her to accept her own happiness?”

“Ah, I see. That must be difficult.”

I always wanted to protect Sofia’s smile.

A smile that she doesn’t realize, a smile that she doesn’t consciously make.

I wanted to see a smile that would crumble.

I think it’s a smile not of a princess, but of Sofia herself.

But I found out that Sofia is Lilia, and

I know that she will become the queen after this.

The Lilia I had always admired was Sofia.

And I know that she intends to shoulder Eugenis after this.

She is far more excellent than me, hard-working, conscious of being royalty,

Understanding the importance of life more than anyone else.

I think she is ready to sacrifice herself again for the peace of this country.

But I want Sofia to smile.

I wish for the girl named Sofia to smile more than anyone else.

Not because she is a queen, a princess, or a witch.

Because I find her so brave, honest, and lovable, I want her to smile.

“I want to protect that smile even after she becomes the queen. . .Can I?”
