When we arrived at the venue, I was escorted by His Highness, who had a prince-like smile, as we walked through a luxurious garden. For some reason, fireflies are flying around, creating a moody scene, perhaps for the sake of novelistic convenience.

Normally, at this point, engaged couples would express their love and maybe even kiss, but unfortunately, we are not an ordinary couple.

As I looked straight ahead, I tightly held the hem of my dress with my left hand.

We were about to enter combat mode.

Since His Highness was walking briskly, I followed suit.

Technically, my right hand was resting on His Highness’s arm, but that was just for appearances.

If we were to think normally, our speed wouldn’t be that of an escorting couple in dresses, but both he and I have become stubborn, and it has turned into a sort of race.

Sasasasasasa. . .

It has become a competition of who can maintain an elegant smile without breaking it and use their leg strength to advance as much as possible.

“Hahaha, you’re always so impatient!”

“Ohohohoho, I can’t keep up with Your Highness!”

The surrounding nobles perceive us, who are rushing through at an abnormal speed, as the usual pair. No one questions it, as if they think, “They’re just like that.”

By the time we finally entered the building, both His Highness and I were slightly out of breath.

His Highness is an idiot, but I think the same of myself every time.

If only I could once let my posture collapse and look up at him with tearful, helpless eyes like a delicate young lady, I’m sure I could avoid these pointless races.

But it’s no use. I don’t know why, but I find myself competing against him.

“Haa. . . haa. . . We’ve done the escort, right?”

Yes, Your Majesty told me to, so I had no choice!

“You should stick to the wall as usual.”

“Understood.”

After His Highness said that, he went to the young ladies who were waiting inside. Or should I say, he went away. 

In any case, after a while, he will surely hold hands with one of them, whether she be a mistress or not, and retreat to the VIP room or the anteroom for some lovey-dovey time.

Even if they are his concubines, those girls who have the mindset of wanting to secure that position while the prince is still in school, are they truly happy?

It’s impossible for me.

“Now I’m finally free!”

From now on, I will greet acquaintances and work on building connections.

I won’t become a wallflower. Thanks to my late father and mother’s friends who dote on me, I can dance. As long as I can enjoy delicious meals and exchange valuable information with the people from my territory, that’s all I need.

Now, I will gather a lot of information to be of use to Onii-sama today!!

“Oh my! Viara-sama, welcome!”

The host’s wife immediately approached me with a smile.

She is a fan of the crystals that can be obtained in our territory, and we always have business dealings.

“Countess Laussu! Thank you for inviting me!”

Ah, I like her.

Countess Laussu, who has been very accommodating, I love her.

Today, I’m wearing new earrings made with crystals from our territory, so she should definitely be interested.

Suppressing the temptation to see her beautiful black hair as kelp, I enthusiastically engage in conversation.
