Cecilia writhes in distress in her room for a while, but the ladies-in-waiting appear in the room in a hurry and quickly fix her clothes, make-up, and hair.
Cecilia was originally beautiful, even without makeup and fancy hair. Before, the ladies-in-waiting sometimes wondered whether Cecilia’s application was really good or not.
But because it was a request from Cecilia, they made it beautiful and adorable, even with thick makeup.
But they can now pour their whole heart and soul into Cecilia even more vividly.
“You really are beautiful, Ojo-sama.”
“I can only think of this as a blessing from God.”
“It’s going to open a new door.”
The ladies-in-waiting muttered such a thing.
Cecilia looks at herself in the mirror and wonders for a moment whether this is really all right.
She wonders what Syxe will think of her, since she always wears heavy makeup.
Just as she is thinking this, there is a knock at her door, and she learns that Syxe is waiting for her in the guest room.
Cecilia thinks that she has to keep her cool, but this is quickly disrupted.
Her parents were not there.
When she asked the butler, she was told to “talk to each other” by her parents. But, of course, the butler and attendants were there, so they were not truly alone.
Two people sitting face-to-face with warm tea and sweets
Cecilia glanced at Syxe, and Syxe smiled at her.
“From the looks of it, did you hear?”
Her shoulders shook, and Cecilia gave a small nod with a blush on her face.
“Yes, I’m sorry. I saw you through the window and listened secretly.”
When Cecilia says this honestly, Syxe looks surprised and then smiles.
Cecilia attempts, nervously, to inquire as to what was bothering her.
“U-Um. I think I look different than usual. The makeup, the way I’m wearing, um, Your Highness Syxe, do you…”
Cecilia wants to ask him what he thinks of her, but she is at a loss as to what to ask.
Should she ask him what he likes? And what will she do when she finds out what he likes? And will she work on them like she did on Hubert?
Cecilia searches in her mind for the right answer.
Syxe smiles gently at her and says,
“You have always been so beautiful, Miss Cecilia, but today you look very pretty.”
“What kind of things do you like, Miss Cecilia?”
In a flash, Cecilia thinks.
—What do I like?
The kind of things she had to put up with in the past?
Then she slowly opened her mouth.
“I… I don’t like fancy things that much.”
“I like cute things.”
“Hahaha. I’m sure it looks good on you.”
“A-And I like light colors better than red.”
“The distinct colors will look good on you, but light colors will suit you too, I’m sure.”
“And then, and then…”
Cecilia realized once again that she had been overworking herself. Then she felt that Syxe in front of her was willing to listen to her opinion.
Syxe said quietly.
“I am very glad to hear what Miss Cecilia has to say.”
“Don’t you want me to adapt it to your tastes?”
At these words, Syxe steps in front of her, kneels down, and squeezes her hand.
