During the first few days in the Kingdom of Albania, His Highness Alfred and I had a very busy schedule of visiting various places to greet people and prepare for the wedding.
Fortunately, His Majesty the King and Her Majesty the Queen both liked me and said that they were happy to have a good daughter, so my biggest concern has been resolved.
I hope we will be able to work well together in the future—.
“…So, Elmhardt-kun is very eager to come, and I’ve already sent an invitation to him and to Miri.”
“?!… I see. That’s very kind of you.”
I was surprised.
Miri was supposed to be sent to the monastery, but Elmhardt-sama wanted to bring her back to attend our wedding.
When we had met him, he had said that he would marry Miri, but that he wanted to keep her away from her parents, not us.
“Well, I guess he has his reasons. But, I don’t think he can handle her in just a few days…”
I heard that he has replaced Leanhardt-sama as the heir apparent to the duke. Does that have anything to do with it?
It is natural for a duke to want to get along with the royal family of a neighboring country, but…
“Nevertheless, if something should happen—.”
“I suppose so. We can’t just cut off relations with the dukes. If he insists on being there, I will not tolerate tardiness or rudeness. This is not just my opinion. It is also about the prestige of the Kingdom of Albinia.”
I understand what His Highness Alfredo is trying to say.
As a nation, we must be strict against insults and disrespect because we want to have an equal relationship with the Kingdom of Ezersta.
Tolerance is important, but in this case, he went to a great deal of trouble to ask for an invitation — and if he spoiled the wedding, the penalty would be much greater.
“Well, who is more afraid than us, your parents? They can’t say they had nothing to do with it, not after giving Miri such a bad education. To avoid that, they sent her to the monastery.”
“I suppose you’re right. My father would not have expected that. I’m sure he didn’t think that Ermhart-sama would go to bring her back.”
Not to mention my parents. They must be feeling sick to their stomachs over this.
His Highness thinks that the two of them are the most culpable since they didn’t educate Miri to be uninhibited in the first place.
“I’m sorry to bring this up at a time when we are preparing for a beautiful ceremony. For now, I will station the military police near your sister and Elmhardt. If something happens, we can move quickly.”
His Highness Alfred is on high alert.
Elmhardt-sama was confident that he could discipline Miri, but I wonder if he will be able to do so.
We tried to think that maybe our fears were unfounded, but memories of my days with my sister prevented me from doing so.
“Speaking of which, have you gotten used to life in this country yet? No, you seem too familiar because you are very adaptable and your language is as fluent as those who have lived here for a long time. On the contrary, I’m worried about you. Are you taking it easy?”
His Highness Alfred changes the subject, perhaps sensing the uneasiness in the air.
He doesn’t seem to be sure if I’m used to the way things work in the Kingdom of Albania.
To be honest, I don’t know if I am accustomed to it. The wedding is only a few days away, and I’m busy with the preparations… I have my hands full with that. I can’t look at my situation calmly.”
As soon as I arrived in the Kingdom of Albania, I greeted Their Majesties the King and Queen, and from then on, I had to deal with the daily greetings of the nobles who are closely related to the royal family, so I couldn’t think about anything else.
“You’re amazing after all. You normally appear tired, but you put on a cool face and try to look at yourself In a new environment. “
“No, it’s not a big deal.”
“No, I’m glad you’re going to be crown princess. I didn’t think there was such a thing as the perfect woman… Thank you for following me.”
Holding my hand, His Highness Alfred stares at me with clear eyes.
I would like to thank you as well…
Thank you for bringing me here—.
