Chapter 25: Liliana is wary of the prince Part 4│Read translated stories and daily updates at: Awebstories.com
The weekend flew by, and she was back to commuting to the school and the castle.
Normally, the crown princess’s training would begin immediately after arriving at the royal castle from the academy, but today she asked for a slight delay.
The place she’s heading to now is the room of William the Ice Prince, Lilliana’s fiancé.
This is the second time she’s been in this room since the day of the feeding.
William was sitting on the sofa, and Liliana was sitting on the other side of the table.
The servant prepares tea and sweets and leaves the door open a crack.
This was done on purpose, as it is not considered good for unmarried people of the opposite sex to be alone together in a closed room, no matter how engaged they may be.
Liliana pulled out a pretty little paper bag and handed it to William, “Here you go.”
“I went into town for the weekend with my brother Aiden. I found something there that would look great on Sir William, so I bought it for him.”
“Lilliana gave it to me? Thank you. May I open it?”
William opened the bag and pulled out a beautiful blue string.
“It’s a hair string. Isn’t it a beautiful color?”
The way she said it with pride and good humor was like a little kid proudly saying, “Isn’t this great?”
“It’s a very pretty shop with lots of lovely little things. It looks like it’s just opened.
My brother Ian, Aiden, and my maid Molly had planned the trip and took me there as a surprise, a change of pace and a reward for my hard work.
I picked out a pen holder for my brother, a book cover for Aiden, and a hair ornament for Molly.
They were so beautiful, it was really hard to choose.
But Sir William’s hairpiece was the same beautiful color as his eyes, so it was an easy choice.”
William, who had been listening to Lilliana’s happy conversation with a smile, stood up with the hair band in his hand and walked over to the sofa where Lilliana was sitting and sat down next to her.
Lilliana wonders why he sat down next to her now that Daniel, the laughing guy, is gone.
William loosens his hair and smiles as he hands Liliana the souvenir tie.
“Lilliana, tie it for me.”
If Daniel had been here, there would have been an outcry that this was a sign of a natural disaster.
But Lilliana had already seen him smile so many times that she didn’t understand how great it was to see that he hadn’t smiled before.
William looks at her curiously as Liliana stands up, a hair tie in her hand.
“What are you going to do?”
“Sir William is a tall man, so I thought I’d go behind him and tie it on.”
“What? If height is the problem, how about this?”
William lifts Liliana and places her on his lap, facing him.
Lilliana sits astride William; their eyes are at the same level, despite their height difference.
This is not something a lady would do.
Unable to escape the sudden situation, Lilliana holds the blue hair ribbon in one hand and freezes.
In front of her is the prince, smiling with his beautiful face.
He has his hands clasped behind her back, and there is no way to escape.
Everything is lost.
