Chapter 42: Back to the Crown Prince’s Palace (Eliana’s point of view)
That is a lie.
Papa was caught doing something wrong!
After going to the Imperial Palace, Papa never came back.
He promised to go shopping with me tomorrow. We were going to pick out souvenirs for Mama together.
“Miss Eliana, I will take you to your mother in the Kingdom of Kalkstein. I will pick you up tomorrow morning, so get ready. I will leave an escort behind tonight just in case something goes wrong.”
Late that night, a man claiming to be the crown prince’s chamberlain came to see me at the inn.
I was glad to open the door, thinking Papa was back, but there was a stranger standing.
He told me briefly that Papa had been caught doing something wrong and that he would take me back to Mama, and then quickly left.
I rushed out of the room to follow him but was stopped by the guards.
“I want to see my Papa!”
“I’m sorry, but we can’t do that. Come on, go inside.”
The guards let me back in and closed the door behind me.
“That’s a lie! Papa would never do anything bad. He’s a kind man. Uwu~u! Papa!”
I fell onto my bed and cried.
I was crying sadly for a while, but then an idea came to me.
“I have to go and see him! That’s it! Let’s go to the Crown Prince and Princess Mariel. And I’ll ask them to let me see Papa.”
Without hesitation, I opened the window, turned into a bird, and flew away.
To the palace of the crown prince――.
I didn’t think twice before getting to the Crown Prince’s Palace, but it was already late in the evening.
The Crown Prince and Princess Mariel must have gone to bed.
But I must leave for the Kingdom of Kalkstein tomorrow morning.
I must see the Crown Prince and Princess Mariel at any cost!
But my fears are unfounded.
The Crown Prince and Princess Mariel were having tea in the Garden Pavilion.
Huh? There’s another guy I don’t know. Who’s that?
Never mind. Let’s just go to the garden.
I landed in the shade near the pavilion.
