“This is Liserotte’s room.”
Aldrick-sama led me to a room ten times larger than the one I had been given in the Hallstein kingdom.
There was a chest of drawers that the craftsmen must have put all their hearts into, a vase of beautiful fresh flowers, a glittering chandelier, and a four-poster bed with white lace curtains.
The closet was full of colorful dresses, and the drawers were neatly stocked with accessories.
The dresses were the latest fashions, robes à la française. The pièce d’est-à-porter, with its numerous ribbons and floral decorations, is sumptuous. The sleeves are ornate with cuffs and tiered lace.
The vato pleats that flow from the back collar to the hem of the dress make it look more beautiful.
Accessories include a choker with ribbon, a hair ornament with flowers, a pearl necklace, brilliant-cut diamond earrings, and a fan with a gorgeous design.
Gemstones include sapphires, rubies, black pearls, amethysts, emeralds… Gemstones of different colors sparkle and shine.
Shoes and hats of all kinds. Formal hats padded with flowers and ribbons, beautifully designed high-heeled shoes.
“Um … Can I really use this room?”
After ten years of living in a room with only curtains, a small bed, a simple table, and chairs, this room is too dazzling for me.
“Of course! I prepared it for Liserotte!”
Aldrick-sama squints his ebony eyes.
“I came here today without warning. How did you get the dress and accessories in such a short time, let alone the room?”
It’s not easy to find dresses and beautiful accessories that look like they were sewn by artisans who put their heart and soul into every stitch.
“Perhaps this was someone else’s room?”
Is it for his potential fiancée?
“His Royal Highness, the Crown Prince, had new clothes and accessories every year, just in case Liserotte-sama came to visit…”
Aldrick-sama did this for me?
“Don’t tell her! Kyle!”
Aldrick-sama wrinkles between his eyebrows and scolds Kyle-sama. His face is faintly red.
“This room has been waiting for the owner for many years, and it is no exaggeration to say that it has been Liserotte-sama’s room for ten years. Please live here from now on.”
I asked Aldrick-sama. He covered his face with his hands and looked away. His face was as red as a tomato.
“… I knew that Liserotte was engaged to the crown prince of Hallstein. Still, I couldn’t give up on her, and I thought that if for some reason, Liserotte should break off her engagement to the Crown Prince and come to visit us, I would ask her to use it.”
“It’s creepy, isn’t it~?”
Kyle-sama says teasingly.
“…I’m sorry, it’s heavy… I don’t blame you if you think I’m creepy…”
Aldrick-sama was red to the ears.
After my mother’s death, I thought that no one who cared about me would show up again.
His Majesty the King helped me with my sacred duties, but it was the kind of help a lord would give his subjects.
Aldrick-sama may be the only one who cared for me not as a saint but as an individual named Liserotte.
“No, I’m very happy, thank you.”
When I smiled and thanked Aldrick-sama, he broke his face and exhaled deeply.
“Good, I thought Liserotte hated me.”
“It’s impossible for me to hate Aldrick-sama.”
Aldrick-sama’s face turned crimson again.
Did I say something strange?
“Your Highness, Liserette-sama looks tired from the long journey. Why don’t you let her rest?”
“Yes, I have a studio where Liserotte can paint whenever she wants, I’ll show you tomorrow.”
I’m more excited than when I saw the dresses and jewelry.
“I’ll arrange for a maid. She’ll take care of Liserotte’s everyday needs. You should take a good rest today.”
“Thank you for everything.”
I have never had a maid since I lived in the Duke’s house as a child.
Is it okay for him to be so nice to me?
But, I’m so happy.
