After finishing the examination before bed, I’m a little tired, so Chris casts a healing spell on me.

Kyle, who has changed his clothes, also lies down on the bed where I’m lying.

It seems that the three of us will sleep together tonight.

I know when we’re going to bed because Kyle comes in after the healing is done.

“You seem more tired than usual today. Thinking too much?”

“That’s right. There were many things to think about.

Even though they were all things that were useless to think about.”

Both Eliza’s situation and Kokodia’s domestic movements,

There’s nothing I can do about it.

Yet I can’t get it out of my head, and I feel heavy all the time.

“You have to forget about Eliza.

As for Kokodia. . .Well, to some extent, we expected it.

Princess, when you asked me to be your consort, I was already saying that.”

“What does it mean that you were telling Chris?”

“. . .I don’t think it’s best for someone of Kokodia’s bloodline to bear a child, or something like that.

Maybe it was also because we were on the verge of going to war with Kokodia.

Those words helped me decide to become my consort.”

“Oh, right, I said something like that.”

That’s nostalgic. I answered Chris, who said he wouldn’t become a consort because we couldn’t have children,

That I didn’t need a consort to have children.

Not to be influenced by Kokodia, not to make my child the next king.

“Do you still think that way?”

“Yes, I do. That’s what they’re saying in Kokodia.

I don’t think we’ll have a good relationship with Kokodia in the future.

King Raymon might be fine, but

I don’t know how the relationship will change with his descendants.

My grandfather accepted the alliance through marriage,

Probably because the country was in such turmoil.”

“Are you going to adopt Eddie’s children?”

“I was thinking that way, but I think it’s fine not to adopt.

Eddie and the others are in the royal palace,

So it’s a simple matter to recognize the child as royalty if one is born.”

I used to think that if they weren’t my children, they couldn’t become crown princes,

But now that Eddie has become a crown prince’s proxy,

We can recognize Eddie’s child as royalty as is.

I think it’s fine to have Eddie and Diana raise them,

And confirm their intentions when they finish their prince education.

“Eddie doesn’t want to become the crown prince probably because he doesn’t want to be king.

I hope Eddie’s child will have the character to become king.”

“I think it will be fine because it’s also Diana’s child.

If that doesn’t work out, we’ll have to think about it at that time.”

I’m hoping that the child will take after Diana and agree, but,

They’ve only been married for a year, and it might be too early to think about this since she’s not even pregnant yet.

“. . .I’d like to see the child of Princess and Kyle.

Would you have considered it a little if Kokodia didn’t exist?”

“Huh?”

“I thought the Princess didn’t want a child.”

My own feelings. . .if Kokodia didn’t exist.

I inadvertently glance at Kyle beside me.

A child will be born between Kyle and me. Surely a lovely silver-haired child will be born.

And then. . .I’ll become a mother. . .no, that’s not right.

“. . .Maybe I wouldn’t have given birth even if Kokodia didn’t exist.

I can think of many reasons not to give birth, but not a single reason why I’d want to.”

“Sofia. . .”

“I don’t know what it means to be a mother.

I don’t think it’s just Okaa-sama’s fault, but I don’t feel like I can become a mother.

. . .I think I’m scared.

I feel like I’ll become something different by giving birth.”

Chris gently strokes my back.

Kyle grips my left hand, saying it’s okay.

When I look at my fingertips, they are trembling slightly.

This is the part of me that hasn’t fully grown up. I just can’t do what’s expected.

As a woman, I can’t accept my motherhood.

“My bad. I was just a little curious.

I was caught up in why the Princess decided not to have a child.

If you don’t want to give birth, I think that’s fine.

I don’t want you to give birth unwillingly. Kyle thinks the same, right?”

“Yeah. I respect what Sofia has decided.

Rather than a non-existent child,

What’s more important is that Sofia is happy and smiling.

. . .I don’t know my mother either. I’m the same as Sofia.

With me, Sofia, and Chris, the three of us are family, and that’s enough.”

“Is it alright? Kyle could have another lover, you know.

Maybe she will give birth to a child?”

“Princess. That’s foolish.”

“Huh?”

Somehow annoyed, Chris tells me, and when I look at Kyle, he’s clearly angry.

Thinking it’s rare for Kyle to be angry like this,

Chris, having finished healing, waves his hand and leaves the room.

“I wanted to let you rest today, but I guess it’s impossible. Good night to both of you.”

“Huh?”

“I’ll wake you up a bit late tomorrow. Kyle, go easy, okay?”

“. . .I’ll try as much as I can.”

“Don’t break Princess, okay? See ya.”

“Chris??”

The door slams shut.

I’m scared to turn around. . .but I’m forcibly turned over,

And my lips are sealed with a kiss.

“. . .?!”

“Don’t you ever suggest having a lover again,

Let’s make sure you understand?”

“I won’t. . .never again. . .”

Despite swearing never to say it again, Kyle’s mood doesn’t improve,

And I ended up being kept awake until I couldn’t get up for a long time. . .
