Chapter 14: Curse of Amber
After playing with Noa-niisama to my hearts’ content, I arrived at the garden. On the lunch table with a parasol, various snacks and tea were prepared.
During our game of hide-and-seek, I had asked Lili to prepare this for me.
The weather is so nice today, eating outside is sure to be delicious.
“Lili, thank you.”
I ran over to her and hugged her tightly. Lili smiled softly and patted my head.
“Alise, it’s rare for you to say that.”
At that moment, Leorio-niisama came briskly from behind and said as he looked at me and Lili.
“You don’t need to say thank you, Alise. You are in a position to be respected naturally.”
“Come over here.”
I slipped out of Lili’s arms and jumped into my big brother’s arms as he reached out to me. He hugged me and gave my amber hair a kiss.
Leorio-niisama, as his name “Leo Lion” suggests, is a strong and sturdy person like a lion. Onii-sama in front of me now is about ten years old, but he’s tall and well-built, and he has the same amber hair as me, making him a handsome man.
If anything happened to me, Leorio-niisama would come flying over and stare down the opponent. He always boasted that when his older brother Harry-niisama inherited the title, he would become a soldier and work hard for the country.
“Alise is so cute. She’s still so small.”
“Just a minute, Onii-sama. I’m already turning seventeen, so don’t treat me like a child.”
After glaring at Leorio-niisama, I suddenly realized something from his surprised expression. I’m not sixteen years old, but only five.
What am I doing?
“Fu, fufu. I wanted to grow up quickly, so I ended up acting like an older sister.”
“Is that so? But you’re still a lovely lady now.”
Onii-sama is so sweet to me, but he’s extremely cold to other women. Every time he compares me to them, he praises me by saying ‘Aliseteen is better.’
I’ve lived with it as the norm since I was little, but it’s not normal.
If I want to change myself, I also have to do something about my brothers’ ‘Aliseteen supremacy.’
I stare at Leorio-niisama’s eyes with an upward glance as I rest in his arms. The Duke Quatra family has a tradition of beautiful amber-colored eyes and hair, and it seems like a curse that cannot be escaped.
“What’s wrong? Why are you staring at me like that?”
Leorio-niisama gently touches my cheek with concern, sensing that something is different from usual.
Even though my brother is so kind to me, he never came to visit me once while I was imprisoned.
I’ve even overheard the guards outside the cell talking about it before.
——Aliseteen Quatra, known throughout the land, was a pitiful woman abandoned even by her own family.
if it’s the case
Even though my brother is kind to me like this, deep down he may be looking down on me.
Thinking that way, I can’t make a convincing smile.
“…It’s nothing, Onii-sama. Let’s hurry and have lunch.”
As I quickly averted my gaze, I slipped out of my brother’s arm with a childish gesture.
