Time goes back a little while at the ball.
Syxe saw Cecilia crying as she got into her carriage and drove away.
Then the place was enveloped in a strange atmosphere.
The only people who appeared to be having a good time were her brother, Hubert, and a woman who had recently stayed near Hubert.
“Brother… I saw Cecilia riding in the carriage just now… What happened?”
Syxe suddenly appeared in the hall, and the nobles attending the ball bowed their heads in panic.
Syxe’s appearance caused Hubert to wrinkle his brow.
“Why did you come? Ha~a, you’re making the place quieter. Get the f*ck out of here!”
Syxe paid no attention to the harsh words and continued to speak.
“Brother, what have you done to Miss Cecilia?”
The anger in his voice made the atmosphere in the hall even worse.
“Cecilia? Wahaha, I broke off my engagement to that stupid woman. Thank goodness!”
“What!? Brother! The marriage between the brother and Miss Cecilia is an important alliance between the royals and the dukes! It is not an engagement that can be easily broken. Especially not when Father and Mother are not present!”
The usually mild-mannered Syxe raised his voice, causing a commotion in the hall.
Hubert clicked his tongue and said,
“This is none of your business. I’ll talk to them when they get back. Ha~a, I’m tired of talking to you, you idiot~. Get out of here!”
Syxe glared at Hubert for a few seconds and decided to turn and walk away.
Syxe left the hall and walked down the corridor to the Prime Minister’s office.
The Prime Minister of the country, Randolph, who is in his office in the palace,
He knocks on the door.
Randolph, who had been looking over some papers, rolls his eyes in surprise at Syxe’s appearance and stands up.
“What’s the matter, Your Highness Syxe?”
He knew Randolph was busy as the king and queen were on a business trip, but if he did not take care of the situation immediately, there could be a split between the royal family and the dukes.
“That idiot seems to have broken off his engagement to Miss Cecilia on his own at the ball.”
At first, the Prime Minister is confused about what Syxe is saying, but once he understands the content of Syxe’s words, his face begins to twist.
“You’re saying… Anyway, I’m going to contact the Dukes immediately and apologize… A~ah, it’s a time like this when neither the king nor the queen are here!”
“No, that’s exactly why the idiot broke his engagement now. In his own way, he used his “wits” to break off the engagement now that Father and Mother couldn’t be persuaded.”
Hearing Syxe’s usually mild-mannered words, the Prime Minister looks at Syxe with expectant eyes.
“Well… Have you changed your mind?”
Syxe looked at Randolph with angry eyes.
“Yes, I have. I finally realize that I can’t trust this country or Miss Cecilia to that idiot brother of mine.”
At these words, Randolph inwardly said, (Well done, Foolish Prince! Thanks to you, the sleeping lion has been awakened!) Randolph clutched his chest.
Randolph put his hand on his chest and bowed his head.
“You deserve the Crown Prince’s title. Are you ready?”
“Yes, I’ll call “them”. I’ll show that idiot what reality is… He’s guilty of hurting Miss Cecilia.”
Randolph bowed his head and nodded to the angry Syxe.
