Chapter 31: Liliana, conscious of the prince Part 2│Read translated stories and daily updates at: Awebstories.com
“There is nothing wrong with you, miss.”
It was about twenty minutes ago that Emma, a crisp old lady doctor, arrived in this room accompanied by a servant.
She has worked at the castle for decades and was the one who assisted in giving birth to Prince William.
Misogynistic? His Royal Highness, who is a misogynist, is said to be indebted to his mother, the Queen, and Dr. Emma, who took care of him before he was born.
Perhaps that’s why she lashed out at His Highness William for refusing to leave my side.
Anyone else wouldn’t have been allowed to do that.
“I told you, you’re interrupting my examination! Now get the hell out of here!”
She threw him out of the room, and after questioning and examining me, I was of course diagnosed as having nothing.
But His Royal Highness William refused to listen.
I just said no to dessert.
I wonder how much of a glutton he thinks I am, for him to be so worried?
… I’ve already caused more than enough worry and inconvenience for so many people, but I can’t afford to cause any more worry and inconvenience.
I have no choice but to confess.
“You see, the reason I refused to have dessert was because, well, I gained a little weight.”
And this morning, the buttons on my uniform popped off…
My maid, Molly and Aiden, told me not to eat too many desserts, so…”
His Royal Highness breathed a sigh of relief when he heard the last part, which was so loud it sounded like a chuckle.
“You’re not unwell, are you?”
To tell the truth, I thought he would be angry with me for not telling him sooner. I could not hide my surprise at his words.
“Well, aren’t you going to get angry?”
I asked anxiously,
“As long as nothing happens to Lilliana, that’s all that matters.”
Then he lifted me up and put me on his lap in a horizontal hug.
He held me tightly, but carefully, with my face pressed against his chest, and whispered a few words.
To see His Royal Highness,
“It’s a shame that a grown man would make such a fuss. But I’m glad you found someone to take care of…. Come back to me if you need anything.”
Dr. Emma said dismissively and left the room, waving her hand behind her back.
This was the first time I had ever been so close to a person of the opposite sex outside of dancing. (Except for Brother Ian and Aiden).
I felt a little embarrassed, but I really liked what he said earlier, “As long as nothing happens to Lilliana, that’s all that matters.”
Oddly enough, the hug is not uncomfortable.
On the contrary, I was confused by the feeling of safety.
When I thought about it, the time I was fed, the time I was put on his lap and told to tie his hair.
I was very embarrassed, but I never felt uncomfortable.
At least I’m not uncomfortable with him, right?
