Chapter 12: Liliana struggles to avoid engagement PART 2│Read translated stories and daily updates at: Awebstories.com
“The King and Queen are dead set on making Lilliana their fiancée, even if it means forcing her to do so. “
Ian then slammed his lips shut.
No, he had no choice.
Aristocracy is a complicated thing, and if you’re not in the right place at the right time, it’s difficult to turn down an offer from a house with a higher title.
And it was the royal family this time.
Even if it is an ancient count’s family, it is only a count, and going against the royal family is impossible.
“Did Liliana do anything to stand out so much?”
She should have dressed more plainly today, and just because Liliana is so cute doesn’t mean she’s a special beauty.
He would not have noticed her if she hadn’t done something to attract the prince’s attention.
These were the questions that came to mind for Oliver, and despite the fact that he knew there was nothing he could do about it, he couldn’t help but ask.
“I did as father requested; I wore a dress that was the same color as the wall to avoid standing out, and I became a wallflower. While I was enjoying my meal, the ladies were summoned to form a line in front of the king and princes. But I did my best to get the best position possible, as far away from the prince as possible. So why me? He didn’t even look me in the eye and said, “This is fine!?” That’s why I had to leave without eating half of the dishes I had planned…”
Lilliana sighed as she looked down at the ground.
“Sister, isn’t it noticeable that a lady eats while everyone dances rather than in the dress?”
Aiden scoffed, and Lilliana became enraged.
“No, I don’t believe so. I ate it in the shadow of a large flower vase.”
“By the way, was the vase the same color as the wall? “
“No, it was a nice light green vase.”
“What do you mean, the dress and the wall are the same color?”
Oliver was taken aback by the exchange.
“There’s no point in saying anything now. We’re going to the castle in three days. It’s late today. You’ve been through a lot and you’re tired, so get some rest.”
And with that, he left the room with Gianna.
