Why here, Your Majesty Coleesh.

Desperately trying to think with a mind that has stopped in surprise.

If His Majesty Coleesh wishes to meet me, I should go to him. His Majesty, who should be busy, has gone out of his way to come here?

Noticing my confusion, His Majesty Coleesh smiled broadly.

“I was being selfish and came all this way. Make yourself comfortable.”

“My deepest apologies! Not only did I not greet you, but I also failed to lower my gaze. . .!”

As I hastily bow deeply, all that fills my eyes is the splendid pattern of the carpet. Men’s shoes appear amidst that carpet, and warm hands are placed on both shoulders.

“Lift your face, Miss Norchev. I came so suddenly because I wanted to see you privately.”

I tentatively raise my face.

The collarless white shirt and jacket tailored in royal blue suited His Majesty Coleesh very well.

He beamed a sun-like smile, exuding familiarity as he spoke.

“Would you please take a seat on the sofa, Lady?”

His face, so similar to that of Roa-sama when teasing, made me inadvertently stare.

“Hm? What’s the matter, fallen for me? Unfortunately, I’m married, and infidelity isn’t to my taste.”

“I’m terribly sorry! . . .It’s just that your expression now is so reminiscent of Prince Linus.”

His Majesty Coleesh stopped in his tracks. Feeling as if a bucket of ice water had been dumped over my head, I braced myself for death.

I’ve spoken disrespectfully! I’ll be beheaded! Could capturing Dyson offset this mistake?! Probably not!

“. . .Did I resemble Linus just now?”

As if a large piece of ice is stuck in my throat, I can’t speak properly. But I must speak, or it’s disrespectful.

“. . .Yes. Your squint and tone were reminiscent, so I inadvertently spoke out loud. I apologize.”

“No need to apologize. I’m glad. Look, Linus and I don’t really look alike, right? Even though we were definitely born of the same father and mother. That’s why. . . nobody says we look alike. It’s kind of. . .”

His Majesty Coleesh, having cut off his words once, squinted as if dazzled and smiled.

“I think I understand a little why Linus fell for Miss Norchev. You’re someone who gives the words one desires.”

. . .I’m at a loss for how to respond.

This must be the most troubled I’ve been in my life, so I activated the ladylike smile taught by Chris.

His Majesty Coleesh burst out laughing.

“Really, you can talk about anything you like. No matter what Miss Norchev does here, there will be no punishment. I won’t be offended. I can only be with Miss Norchev for a short time, so I’d rather not spend it in silence.”

“. . .Understood.”

“I’d like you to talk more casually if possible. Look, I talk like this, don’t I? Outside of official settings, I’m like this.”

Sitting opposite on the sofa, I look at His Majesty who is smiling cheerfully.

Lacking the skill to converse amicably with the most important person in this new country, I desperately think of safe responses.

I feel that His Majesty does not wish for overly formal speech and responses.

“If so, I shall speak in this manner. It is the language of the lower nobility, so please forgive me if it is not to your liking.”

“You could be a bit more at ease, though. Well, I won’t insist on it. If you talk to me as you would with family, I won’t complain. In fact, I’d be happy.”

“Understood. I will make an effort.”

“Ah, there’s no need to force it! Because I am the king, my requests might come across as commands. That’s not my intention. It’s just that people around me tend to ignore my requests.”

His Majesty’s face looked like that of a sulking child.

I could tell that he was on good terms with his subjects, and it eased my tension a bit.

Sensing that I had relaxed, His Majesty smiled with pleasure and then bowed deeply.

“Alice・Miss Norchev. I am truly grateful. Thank you.”
