Is the Lost Princess Unexpectedly Loved? – Chapter 156

After the wedding ceremony, my grandfather, Chris, Kyle, and I have dinner together.

We invited Eddie and my uncles as well, but they went home because my aunt was uneasy.

We eat slowly, matching the reduced appetite of my grandfather.

We never tire of reminiscing about memories and discussing our ideals for the country.

After spending two hours on dinner, as we were seeing my grandfather off,

He placed his hand on top of my head.

Then he stroked my hair a little and smiled sadly.

“You’ve grown so big.”

“Grandfather?”

“No, from now on, I’ll leave it to Chris and Kyle.

Well then, goodnight.”

“Goodnight?”

Although my grandfather’s behavior seemed strange,

Before I could ask, Renkin-sensei took my grandfather back to his room, supporting him.

“Grandfather, I wonder what that was about?”

“. . .I don’t know.”

“He might be tired from his first official duty in a long time.”

Though I asked Chris and Kyle, I felt like they evaded my question.

I hope he’s not getting sick again.

When I got back to my room, I was taken to bathe earlier than usual.

I was scrubbed by three maids until I felt dizzy.

I wasn’t scrubbed this much even when I returned from a trip.

“. . .Why are you scrubbing me so much?”

“It’s because of the first night ceremony.”

“The first night ceremony. . .right, that’s true.”

There are many troublesome procedures when the crown prince marries the crown princess,

But in my case, I am the crown prince, not the princess.

So the ceremony is scheduled to be simplified considerably.

During Okaa-sama’s time, Renkin-sensei conducted a medical examination before the first night ceremony,

But since Chris is the attending physician, no examination will be conducted.

. . .So, what happens in the first night ceremony?

After the bath, Chris was the only one who came to fetch me.

“Huh? Only Chris today? Where’s Kyle?”

“Kyle won’t come tonight.”

“Why?”

We’ve been sleeping together as three for a while now, so having just Chris is strange.

When I wondered about this, Chris sighed.

“Huh?”

“Ah. Well, I guess I don’t need to explain.

You’ll understand tomorrow night.

The first night ceremony is performed one consort at a time.

So today, it’s just me, the first consort.”

“Is that so?”

“Yeah. You must be tired from preparing this morning.

Come on, let’s sleep.”

As usual, we lay down on the bed, and I was lightly tapped over the blanket.

Being busy since morning and taking a slow bath must have made me tired.

Being tapped gently felt pleasant, and I fell asleep quickly.

The next day, when I woke up, the sun was already high.

Looking at the time, it was usually past breakfast.

“Hmm. . .overslept?”

“No, today is a day you can wake up slowly.

That’s why I didn’t wake you up.”

“Is that so?”

“Yeah. No official duties today either.

Stay lying down as I’ll examine you now.”

“Okay.”

As I lay still, Chris channeled magic from my hand.

He sent magic through my entire body, looking for any abnormalities.

Since Chris became my attending physician, I have been receiving this examination every morning.

Perhaps because my grandfather had collapsed from overdoing it, I feel like I’m being watched closely.

“Alright, nothing wrong today.”

“Yeah.”

“Well, you probably won’t be able to get up tomorrow morning.”

“Huh? Why?”

“. . .I can only say you’ll understand tomorrow.

But really, if you don’t like it, you can run to me.

I’ll shelter you until you’re ready.”

“If I really don’t like it?”

“Yeah. You might not understand now, but remember it.”

“I don’t quite get it, but okay. I’ll remember.”

Run to Chris if I really don’t like it?

What’s going to happen after this? I nod while wondering.

If I’m in trouble, go to Chris, and he’ll help. Let’s remember that for now.

That day, for some reason everyone was restless, and it was strange.

Ruri kept asking

“Sofia-sama. . .if your body feels painful, you should rest. . .”

But each time, I could only respond that I was fine.

It wasn’t just the maids; even the shadows seemed unsettled.

I asked Chris and Kyle, but they didn’t answer, and it was left unresolved.

“. . .What on earth was that?”

After that day’s bath, only Kyle came to pick me up.

It seems that Chris isn’t here today.

“It’s your turn today, Kyle?”

“. . .Yes. My turn. . .or something like that.”

“Kyle?”

As soon as we entered the bedroom, I was embraced from behind.

Not the usual gentle hug, but a strong grip as if clinging tightly.

“. . .Hey, what’s wrong?”

“. . .If you get scared, run to Chris’ place immediately.”

“Huh?”
