The Bewilderment of the Sacrificial Second Princess ~ Married Into the Enemy Country as a Hostage Princess, but Was Strangely Welcomed With Open Arms~ – Chapter 5

Chapter 5: New Home

As His Highness Auglia led me into the castle, I was met with a row of servants who kept their heads bowed in respect.

This was the enemy country, wasn’t it? I was supposed to be the hated woman who had married into the winning side, wasn’t I? I had to resist the urge to pinch myself to make sure this was real.

It had been a year since the war ended, and even though it was over, the wounds from the conflict were still raw. I had expected to be treated with suspicion, or even beheaded, but for some reason, I was being warmly welcomed.

“Welcome back, Your Highnesses, the Crown Prince and Crown Princess!”

“We’re back,” said His Highness Auglia. “Claire must be surprised, so let’s call it a day. Come on, Claire, you must be exhausted from the long journey. I’ll take you to your room so you can rest and prepare for the banquet tomorrow morning.”

“Y-Yes, Your Highness Auglia,” I replied, still in shock.

I had never been treated like this, not even in the Faithnum Empire. And now I was being told to rest without even being allowed to greet the king?

I felt like I was being given a great deal of importance, but I couldn’t understand why. I hadn’t done anything special in this country, and I had only just met Prince Auglia on this brief journey.

I am far from beautiful or adorable, lacking any charm or warmth. I don’t behave like a proper lady and have never made a man feel at ease. I am confused as to why I am being welcomed so kindly, but I nonetheless wave back at the smiling prince, and a friendly servant leads me to my room.

The room is spacious and boasts a relaxing color scheme, furnished with luxurious items from the Faithnum Empire. Despite the comfort, I cannot let my guard down, for I am still the princess of an enemy Empire and cannot rule out the possibility of deception.

I unpack my belongings and store them in the spacious walk-in closet, awestruck by the array of clothing and accessories stacked inside. I wonder if it was truly necessary to bring so many.

Exhausted from the long journey, I have a maid assist me with a bath and massage my weary body before retiring for the night.

The next day, as soon as I wake up, a maid enters and opens the curtains, reminding me that this is indeed an unfamiliar country and not just a dream.

I freshened up and prepared myself for the day ahead. Back in my home country, I never dressed up too much because my older and younger sisters would tease me, but the maids here wouldn’t let me leave the room without looking my best.

I was showered with compliments that I had never heard before, such as “Your skin and hair are so fair, let’s add a pop of color to your cheeks” and “Let’s choose a stunning gown,” and was styled according to their suggestions.

As it was a banquet today, I wasn’t wearing a restrictive corset and my collar was left open for comfort. I was adorned with delicate silver jewelry from a country that the Baratonia Kingdom trades with.

Although I couldn’t do anything about my poor posture, when the maid told me it would be corrected later, I merely chuckled to myself and glanced at my reflection in the mirror.

“Thank you, Melissa, Gwenna, and Millie. I look much better now thanks to you.”

When I expressed my gratitude to the three maids who had been taking care of me since last night, they appeared surprised.

“You know our names…?”

“Of course, didn’t I meet you yesterday? I’ll be in your care from now on, so it’s nice to see you again.”

In response to Gwenna’s inquiry on behalf of the others, I tilted my head. They nodded in agreement.

“We’ll serve you with all our hearts.”

“Th-Thank you,” I stammered, taken aback by their words.

I felt a twinge of self-consciousness as the three of them guided me towards the banquet hall.

The Second Princess, Claire Fatenam, possessed no charisma, an intelligent, but ill-mannered princess. She’s the princess of a defeated country that has recently lost a war and is about to marry into the enemy country, the Kingdom of Vallatenear. In this political marriage, she is nothing more than a hostage and a sacrifice. Believing that being killed as soon as she got married was inevitable, she gave up on living her life as she married into the enemy country. As both her older sister and younger sister were beautiful, charismatic, and well-educated, Claire knew she would be the one to be married off. But what awaited her was an unexpected reaction…? “Welcome, Claire! This place will be your home and country from this day forward. And if there is anything else I can do for you, please let me know.” Claire was perplexed by the warm welcome she received not only from the crown prince, Aglia, but also from the servants, bureaucrats, and His Majesty the King. In this kingdom of Vallatenear, Claire was called this—a person overflowing with knowledge.
