Chapter 20: Misunderstood Words
What’s that supposed to mean? Is it a big insult?
I stare at Julian-sama with a stern expression, not understanding his intentions.
Even though we only met recently, does he really hate me that much?
“I’ve never had anyone say anything mean to me before.”
“That’s what I hate about it.”
A refreshing breeze rustles through Julian-sama’s gray hair. He tickles his forehead with his fingers.
“I can tell when someone’s thoughts and their face don’t match. And you’re particularly easy to read.”
“Well, I am still a child.”
Surely, a real child wouldn’t say something like that. Julian-sama seemed to feel the same, as he slightly relaxed his cheeks at my words.
“If you don’t like me, I wish you would have been honest and told me.”
“Why is that?”
“Because I’m tired of lies.”
Even though he’s only five years old, he’s already tired of lies. He was born into the royal family and raised in the best environment, and on top of that, he looks this beautiful. A little lie here and there is unavoidable.
Maybe Julian-sama is a more selfish person than I am.
“Will you forgive me for what I am about to say?”
Originally, I was planning on keeping my distance. If the engagement talk disappears, the probability of my death will be even lower.
If I’m not his fiancée, I won’t envy Princess Chai, and everything will be resolved.
That’s why I didn’t want to make any mistakes in my speech.
In the past and now, I really only like Julian-sama’s appearance.
“That’s a spoiled way of thinking.”
I say this sharply while looking into Julian-sama’s eyes. He briefly widened his eyes in surprise.
“You can get anything you want, so you should be satisfied with what you have.”
“Anything I want…”
“Whether what you’re saying is true or false doesn’t matter, does it?”
Since you’re a prince, no one can oppose you anyway. So why not use that position to live happily?
“Julian-sama has been blessed since the moment he was born into the royal family.”
I snort and put on a face of superiority.
Compared to me, Julian-sama’s problems are nothing.
“You promised, didn’t you? That you’ll forgive me no matter what I say.”
“Yeah, I did promise.”
“Then please don’t be angry.”
Maybe I wasn’t acting very mature with a five-year-old. I ended up unleashing my past resentment onto Julian-sama in front of me.
He looks at me with unreadable eyes and speaks quietly.
“You have a really bad personality.”
With those words, my body trembles. He dared to say that to me after I told him to be honest.
I’m so angry that…
“…No, that’s not it.”
It’s not anger that’s causing my body to shake. It’s fear.
“I…I haven’t changed at all.”
My face quickly paled. Julian-sama seemed shaken by my sudden change in behavior.
Lili, who had been waiting behind us, rushed over to me. I clung onto her as she lifted me up gently.
“I apologize, Your Highness Julian. It seems that Aliseteen-ojosama has fallen ill.”
“What, all of a sudden?”
I couldn’t spare any concern for Julian-sama at the moment.
I could only tightly close my eyes and tremble in fear as the image of my own death flashed before me like a revolving lantern.
