“Sister, what is this?”
“It’s an assortment of pastries the prince gave me.”
“That’s not what I’m asking. I thought you came to the castle to avoid the engagement, but now you’re officially engaged and you’re carrying all this stuff. What on earth would that happen?”
As soon as they arrived at the villa, Aiden grabbed her and took her to the parlor.
Her father and mother were sitting on one side of the sofa, her brothers, Ian and Aiden, were sitting on the other side of the table, and Lilliana was kneeling on the carpet next to the table.
“Right. Let’s start from the beginning and go through everything so everyone here understands. Okay, Lilliana.”
Oliver is not happy that Lilliana ruined the chance she had to break off her engagement to the royal family.
Having no one by her side, Liliana, who had always been small, became even smaller and began to explain.
The king said, “It’s better to talk with other young people.” I took it as a chance to avoid the engagement.
I tried to pass it on to another young lady, but I didn’t succeed.
I don’t know why the prince made me eat pastry.
He thought I didn’t have enough to eat, so he got me a bunch of assorted food.
“I don’t remember doing anything to him, or having him do anything to me. If anything, I gave him advice not to underestimate nose hairs.”
The whole family (with the exception of Liliana) was very surprised by that.
“Don’t underestimate the hair on your nose.” And how did the prince like Liliana who said such a thing?
Oliver dropped his shoulders weakly and let out a big sigh.
“There’s no point in talking about something that’s already been decided. Lilliana will soon be receiving her education as the crown princess. After school, you’ll go to the castle. You will be busy, but this is something Liliana has brought upon herself.”
Lilliana gave him a disapproving look, and Oliver turned to her and said.
And then he and Gianna left the room.
Ian and Aiden squatted down next to Liliana,
“Well, you did your best, didn’t you, Lilliana? I mean, it’s a lot of wrong turns.”
He patted her on the head, but no one could hear Lilliana’s cries.
[My legs are numb… [crying]
