“Evelina! I heard you were envious of Camilia and bullied her without my knowledge. I can’t have such a woman as my queen! I’m breaking off this engagement!”
At a royal palace party, Prince Jared said, “With a scary face” while hugging the saint Camilia’s waist in front of me.
He intended to end my engagement and begin a new one with Saint Camilia.
It was exactly as I had predicted.
Or, more precisely, exactly as I remembered it.
I’m not as upset this time around as I was the last. I just stare at Prince Jared and Camilia, who is clinging to him with tears in her eyes.
“Camilia burst into tears as she told me—she told me that you pushed her down the stairs and insulted her while surrounded by your followers—that such a heinous offense against Camilia, a saint, was unforgivable. Never come close to Camilia again!”
The prince rambled on and on, not giving me a chance to interject.
My response has already been determined.
“I understand. I respectfully accept your termination of the engagement and will stay away from Camilia-sama. I wish you both the best.”
When I smiled and said this, the prince, Camilia, and everyone else around me looked at me blankly. I bowed to them and exited the hall quickly.
This is not the time to linger. I have someone I have to see.
I dash down the palace’s corridors. It irritates me that I can’t run fast because of my outfit.
I need to move faster. Will I be able to see him? Is he really going to be here? My heart is racing.
From across the corridor, a dark-brown-haired man in a butler’s uniform called out to me. I almost burst out laughing at the nostalgic appearance.
He’s the man I’ve always wished to meet.
I ran up to him and jumped into his chest with all my might, regardless of whether my legs were about to get tangled.
“O-Ojo-sama? What happened all of a sudden?”
“Aah, Sylas…Sylas…I’ve been missing you so much.”
Regardless of his agitation, I hugged him with all my might. I’ve been missing him so much. My eyes are starting to burn.
“What’s the problem, Ojo-sama? You shouldn’t be hugging me.”
“It’s all right. It’s been a while.”
“It’s been a while—? Didn’t we meet this morning at the house?”
I looked up at Sylas, who I was still clutching onto, and he had a troubled expression on his face—my cheek relaxed without saying anything.
“Evelina Ojo-sama, I’m sure you’re confused and shocked that your engagement has been broken off… It is unforgivable that Prince Jared publicly accused the innocent Ojo-sama and ended the engagement…!”
In frustration, Sylas bit his lower lip. I smile as I shake my head.
“No. I’m not bothered about breaking off my engagement. I’m not going to make another blunder.”
“But now that I’ve been given a second chance, I don’t care if my fiancé dumped me or if I was falsely accused. I’ll repay you in this life!”
Sylas is taken aback, his eyes blinking. I just smiled at him because I was so happy to see his expression.
