Chapter 27: Everyone is so irritating. 〈Agustin〉
“Agustin-sama, which dress do you think suits me better?”
At a luxury Western-style clothing store in the capital city, Yserra held up two dresses to her chest and turned to me.
“I think it would look good either way.”
“It’s not about that. I want Agustin-sama to choose for me!”
Yserra’s words were sharp and obvious. It used to be a cute gesture when we first met, but lately it doesn’t move me for some reason.
I was supposed to hate stupid people.
Yserra, who didn’t have particularly good grades.
Yserra, who loved to dress up and only followed the trends.
And now, during summer vacation, Yserra who demanded expensive clothes as if it were her right.
Perhaps I just hate everything about her nature, she’s just a stupid woman that I dislike.
Come to think of it, why did I think I liked her in the first place?
That’s right, I was captivated by her beauty when we first met… in other words, her face?
“…I think the light blue one would be good.”
“Is it the light blue one? Hmm, but I also think this floral one is cute. Oh, this one is cute too! Hey, what should I do, Agustin-sama?”
Yserra’s deliberate head tilting annoys me.
Wasn’t it you who asked in the first place? What’s with this selfish behavior?
I was getting fed up and decided to buy all three dresses.
Yserra seemed satisfied, but I felt a great sense of fatigue as we headed back.
When I returned to the royal palace, I received a sudden summons from my father, the king.
I went to his office and exchanged formal greetings.
My father, who is whispered to lack decision-making ability behind his back, was staring at me with an unusually serious expression today.
“Agustin. Is it true that you are smitten with the Baron family’s daughter these days?”
It seems that my relationship with Yserra had come to my father’s attention.
But why would he bother confirming it?
He should know that the Baron family’s daughter can never become the queen.
This love is nothing more than a passing fancy during our student days.
“It’s not correct to say that I’m devoted to her. Well, it’s true that we have some kind of relationship.”
“Then, you’re not considering that lady to be the queen?”
Father let out a relieved sigh. Perhaps he fears too much about his son’s whims.
“No, of course I understand that much.”
“Then it’s settled. Look at this, Agustin.”
Father took out a few pieces of paper.
As I flipped through them, I found the portrait and family name of a certain lady, as expected.
“You should start considering your engagement too. You said you want a smart woman, so I have already selected some candidates based on that condition. You’ll choose one and report back soon.”
I see. Since Benito’s daughter rejected the engagement, Father has also been making some moves.
I held the bundle of heavy papers and respectfully thanked him.
“Thank you very much for your kind attention.”
If Leticia was the fiancée, I wonder how I would have treated her.
She’s a smart woman full of dedication. Perhaps she would have been a very satisfactory partner.
…Well, she is Camilo’s fiancée. There’s no point in thinking about it too much.
“Father, if I were to wish to make Baron Echeverria’s daughter the queen, what would you intend to do?”
It was meant to be a playful question.
However, my father gave me a strong and stern stare that I had never seen before.
It was a gaze so severe that anyone who knew the always gentle king would have been stunned.
“If you don’t listen to my advice, I would have stripped you of your right to succeed to the throne and handed the throne over to Elias.”
Hand over the throne to Elias? That’s ridiculous.
I am talented. I have achieved outstanding results in every field, surpassing anyone else.
And yet, someone who has to study desperately day and night just to maintain their top spot in class would rule the country in my place?
“Such a thing will never be accepted! I am not considering making Yserra the queen!”
“I understand. Don’t raise your voice, Agustin.”
Before my father, who shook his head with a sigh, I had to suppress the anger that was welling up in my chest.
What’s the matter? Are you afraid of how capable I am?
Anyway, I have no intention of relinquishing the throne to Elias.
If Father thinks like this, I’m done with Yserra. I made a promise because I was begged, but I’ll say goodbye to her when we meet next time.
I give a brief greeting and leave the office. Walking down the carpeted hallway with an unable-to-hide-irritation pace, Elias of all people comes from the other side.
“Hello, elder brother. You were on a date today, did you have fun?”
His friendly smile is so irritating. When I glare at him without saying anything, Elias shrugs and walks away.
Everyone is annoying.
I have no interest in this pile of candidates, but I have to go through them later.
There is no woman who can match me anywhere.
A woman who is intelligent, beautiful, and has the qualities of a queen… Is there no one out there that I can meet?
