Evona’s words haunt her mind.
Cecilia sighed heavily and wondered if she should tell Syxe about this incident, and ended up spending a few days without saying it.
—As Evona says, am I running away?
She wonders if it is the right thing to do, as she is the one who will eventually become queen.
“I should be able to solve this problem on my own.”
In fact, it would probably be easier to solve the problem by talking to Syxe.
—It will be safe if I stay away from His Highness Hubert until graduation and do not get involved with him further.
Cecilia sighs and wonders if this is really the right thing to do.
Looking up, the sky is blue and cloudless. Cecilia sits alone on a bench at the back of the auditorium, thinking.
Cecilia shook her head as she watched the white clouds drift away in the wind.
“I can’t go on like this, after all.”
—I must tell His Highness Hubert that I have no romantic feelings for him, and I must admit to His Highness Syxe that I am not amnesic.
At this thought, Cecilia stands up and looks at her watch.
At this time of day, Hubert would be in the library reading a book. However, the books were only entertainment books, and he had not even picked up anything difficult.
Cecilia immediately thought of this and smiled at herself for being so familiar with Hubert’s habits since she had been his fiancée for many years.
She opens the door to the library and walks straight to the seating area where Hubert used to sit.
A comfortable seat with sunlight and just the right amount of breeze.
This was Hubert’s special seat.
Hubert had asked the butler to prepare a steaming cup of tea on the desk, as usual, even though food and drinks weren’t allowed in the library.
Hubert looked up and laughed when he found Cecilia.
It had been so long since he had smiled at her so straightly, as he had when they were young and newly engaged, that Cecilia involuntarily took a step backwards.
He called her affectionately, giving her goosebumps.
It was as if he had anticipated her arrival.
She felt uncomfortable, but she knew she couldn’t run away, so she put her strength in her legs, and Cecilia bowed in front of him.
“Greetings, your highness.”
“Oh, no need to be so formal. Come on, sit down here.”
Hubert pointed to the seat next to him.
Cecilia, on the other hand, sat a little further away, perplexed as to what Hubert, who had never allowed her to sit next to him before, was up to.
Hubert shrugged and said fondly.
“Until a little while ago, Cecilia and I talked about love next to each other, but amnesia is a sad thing.”
Cecilia rolled her eyes and question marks flew around in her head as she did not understand what was being said.
