On the table are an ornate tea set, herbal tea, and colorful macaroons.
“And that’s what happened…”
Aldrick-sama asked me and I explained how I came to the Ludendolf empire.
“That’s unforgivable! Instead of valuing and cherishing Liserotte, who had contributed so much to the defense and development of the country by keeping a barrier over the whole country for ten years, they abuse her, scorn her, neglect her, break the engagement with her, and deport her?!!”
Aldrick-sama had a blue streak on his forehead.
“So what will Liserotte do now?”
“Fortunately, I can use healing magic, and I’m thinking of putting my skills to good use.”
“Then you should work at the royal palace. I will write you a letter of introduction.”
“No, I can’t cause any trouble for Aldrick-sama…!”
“Don’t be so watery (水臭?)! We’ve been friends since we were kids, right? You can count on me! Liserotte can stay here forever if she wants!”
Aldrick-sama takes my hand.
“I couldn’t do anything for you even though you’ve been having a hard time for ten years. I wanted to be by your side and support your mother when she died, but I couldn’t do anything! I want to help you! From now on, you can talk to me about anything!”
No one had ever said such kind words to me when I was in Hallstein Palace.
His Majesty the King praised my paintings from time to time, but basically I was alone. His Majesty the King didn’t like it when I got involved with other people.
Aldrick-sama’s words are very touching.
“May I take your word for it?”
“Yes, you can! You can count on me!”
Aldrick-sama smiled. Aldrick-sama’s face comes closer… and I close my eyes in panic.
“Ahem, Ahem! Aren’t you two a little close?”
A cough from Aldrick-sama’s servant brings me back to myself. The man clearing his throat is the young man with sky-blue hair who has been in the room since we entered.
When I opened my eyes, Aldrick-sama’s face was so close to mine that the tips of our noses were touching.
I can’t shake the feeling of distance from my childhood.
The prince of a country is no longer a child, so I have to pay attention to the distance.
“Kyle is here?”
Aldrick-sama called Kyle, the young man with the sky-blue hair.
So the young man in uniform’s name is Kyle-sama.
“Of course, I would not leave the Crown Prince alone with a young woman to whom you are not engaged. I know his highness is happy to see the woman you’ve had a crush on for years, but please don’t skip all the steps and run wild.
Kyle-sama called Aldrick-sama “the Crown Prince.”
But, Aldrick-sama was supposed to be the fourth prince….
“K-Kyle, what are you talking about?! Liserotte, it’s not, it’s not… I admired Liserotte because…”
“Aldrick-sama, you’ve been crowned. Congratulations. I apologize for the delay in congratulating you.”
I did not know that Aldrick-sama had become crown prince because I lived a secluded life in the royal palace. At that time, I had very little information about the outside world.
Just being the fourth prince is a big difference in status from me, a commoner, but being the crown prince is even bigger. Aldrick-sama has become even more distant from me. I have to be careful not to get too familiar with him!
“Well… Is that what’s worrying you?”
Aldrick-sama puts his hand on his forehead, stunned.
“In front of Liserotte-sama, the Crown Prince is intimidated. Liserotte-sama is a tough cookie. What should we do, Your Highness?”
Kyle-sama puts his hand over his mouth and chuckles.
Did I say something funny?

Thanks for the new chapter!
Thank you for your work.
Are congratulations OK, perhaps his three older brothers died and he liked them? And being the crown prince is not the same as being crowned.
水臭 = distant, reserved.
