𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝟔𝟎: (𝐊𝐲𝐥𝐞)
As I wondered how things ended up this way,
I held onto the princess, who clung to my neck and wouldn’t let go,
And firmly re-embraced her, making her sit on my lap.
When I tried to soothe her by stroking her hair and lightly patting her back,
The princess seemed upset about being treated like a child and almost cried.
Thinking that calming down an adult was difficult,
She became quiet when I kissed her forehead.
Maybe she liked that, for when she asked for more,
I felt like crying myself but still kissed her cheek.
Just when I thought I was about to lose my sanity,
I realized the princess had gone limp and fallen asleep.
“. . .Spare me.”
I picked her up and took her to the bedroom, laying her down on the bed.
She was still in her evening dress and had makeup on.
I figured Lisa and Yuna would handle the rest.
Ah, when I remembered to contact the hall,
The door to the private room was flung open, and Chris burst in.
“Yeah, the princess is asleep, so keep it down.”
“. . .Good. I wondered where you had teleported to.
I’m relieved you’re in the private room.
So, the Princess slept. . .What happened?”
“Didn’t someone get the princess drunk while I was gone?
She was clearly inebriated.”
“Alcohol? That can’t be. . .I’ll check on it later.
So, what did the drunken Princess do?”
Sigh. . . Chris, who must have been running around looking for the teleported princess,
Was sweating but had a gleeful look on his face.
It irked me to meet his expectation,
But if I had to discuss this with someone, it would only be Chris.
“She asked if I prefer larger breasts.”
“What? Oh, she’s still worried about that.”
“She suddenly started caring about it,
I thought some idiotic guy told her that men prefer larger breasts,
And I asked her who he was. . .”
“Huh? There’s no such guy.
We’re always by her side; there’s no way we’d let such a foolish man get close.”
“Right. It turned out to be a misunderstanding on my part. . . . . .
. . . . . .She asked if I would embrace her when she grows up.”
The moment I said it, heat gathered in my face.
I almost regretted telling him, but without saying this, it wouldn’t be a consultation.
I fearfully observed Chris, who surprisingly looked troubled with a serious expression.
“. . . Anything else?”
“Whether or not I would embrace her if she remained a child. . .She seemed a bit off.
She didn’t like me leaving and clung to me, so I tried to soothe her as usual,
But she also hated being treated like a child, and it was tough.”
“Ah, I see.
. . .I hate to explain everything, but I’ll tell you this.
Even if I become a consort, I will never embrace the Princess.
She agrees with this too.
In other words, after she graduate from the academy and get married as is,
The bridal night or rather, the bedroom partner will all be Kyle.”
“Moreover, if the Princess says such things,
It probably means she thinks Kyle is the best partner in the bedroom.
Despite being mature, she is slow to grow in that regard.
She might be becoming aware bit by bit.
. . .You should be happy.
Trying to turn a grinning face into a serious one will only make you look strange.”
“. . . . . .Shut up.”
“It’s about time you realized it.”
“I realized it long ago.
However, I intended to wait.
Until the princess becomes mentally an adult, and desires such things.”
“Really? Then there’s no problem.”
“. . .What if she forgets when she wakes up?
Well, then. . .I’ll wait patiently again.”
“Patiently, huh. It’s no wonder after waiting all these years.”
“Shut up. . .I’ll contact Lisa and Yuna.
Chris, stay by the princess’ side.
I want to cool my head a bit. . .”
“Fine. . .Honestly. . .What did you do to the Princess?”
While I hadn’t intended to tell Chris that we had kissed at the end,
He seemed to have sensed it somehow and grinned.
Without answering, I waved my hand lightly and left for the corridor.
