Syxe grabs Cecilia’s arm and picks her up.
Both Hubert and Evona were surprised at the sight, and of course, Cecilia’s face turned red in surprise.
Cecilia mutters in confusion, and Syxe says it in a clear tone.
“I want both Brother and Miss Evona to stop plotting any more. This is the last time I will underestimate you. The next time you try something like this, even I will be offended.”
Hubert chuckles at these cold, dismissive words.
“Plotting? No, I’m not. I’ve told you many times that Cecilia loves me, okay? It’s you who’s tearing me and Cecilia apart.”
Syxe frowns at Hubert’s words.
Evona wiggles her body prettily and says, in a cat-like voice,
“It’s true~. Cecilia-sama was in love with His Highness Hubert at first, wasn’t she~?”
Cecilia wonders what’s going on and tries to retort, but Syxe starts to walk away, carrying Cecilia in his arms—she almost bites her tongue.
“I warned you.”
With that, Syxe left the library and, with her still in his arms, got into the carriage that had been prepared for them.
While she wondered where they were going, the carriage drove towards the royal palace.
In the carriage, Syxe was silent and gave off an aura of “not wanting to talk to me”.
Cecilia is therefore still in Syxe’s arms in the carriage, but when they reach the palace, she opens her mouth.
“U-Um, Syxe-sama, how did we get to the palace?”
“I will send a letter to the Dukes later asking for permission.”
“N-No, that’s not what I meant.”
Syxe then became silent again, and Cecilia had no choice but to go quietly in his arms.
In the guest room where they arrived, Syxe told the maid-of-honor to bring them tea, then sat down on the sofa with her on his lap and hugged Cecilia tightly, saying nothing.
Cecilia wondered what was going on, but slowly opened her mouth.
“I’m sorry if I’ve given you the wrong impression, but I went to see His Highness Hubert to…”
“I don’t want to hear anything.”
The embrace tightened, and Cecilia panicked.
“Listen to me! I went to see His Highness Hubert to tell him that I would never be his fiancée again and that I would never like him!”
Syxe looks up in surprise, and Cecilia clarifies.
“I’m not pleased with His Highness Hubert. It’s only Syxe-sama that makes me nervous and happy…”
Cecilia was sure that Syxe made her heart beat faster than she had ever felt it with Hubert.
Perhaps this was the beginning of love.
Blushing, Cecilia said.
“So, um, I’m embarrassed. Please put me down… kya!”
Syxe’s face turned bright red as he looked up at Cecilia and hugged her tightly again.
