Chapter 30: After the Garden Party
It’s good that you come to speak with irony even if you look down on me.
However, it is not appropriate for royalty to approach a commoner first.
The people around us are also paying attention to what is going on.
“Bless your heart, Wilhelmina.”
I will try to suppress the urge to click my tongue and reply.
“I would like to offer my greetings to His Royal Highness, the young lion of the kingdom, Prince Elias. Through His Royal Highness’s “special care”, I am able to spend my days without troubles.”
The appearance of Prince Elias as a formal daytime outfit for a prince is familiar to me, with a jacket embroidered with golden threads on a white background, and decorations such as shoulder badges.
However, the brooch that used to be the color of my eyes, peridot, has changed to a pink diamond that represents Miss Madetoya’s hair color.
And the appearance of Miss Madetoya, who is escorted by His Royal Highness, décolleté (neckline) exposed…?
The cap decorated with peacock feathers and the three-quarter-length sleeves that cover the elbows are certainly the composition of a day dress.
The dress is made of deep-colored silk, which would shine under the night light, and has a long, trailing hem.
Furthermore, the wide décolleté exposing her voluptuous cleavage is a disgrace to be seen under the sun.
The sapphire shining blue on the chest is probably the color of Your Highness’s eyes.
His Highness’s mouth is twisted into a smile.
“Hmm. Even if you claim that your days are trouble-free, your clothes raise some questions.”
His Highness Elias is not foolish, but he lacks a certain elegance in his speech. There is nothing to directly belittle.
In fact, if you look around, there are people who show discomfort.
“I beg your pardon. But now I am no longer a rose in the garden, but a thistle in the field.
“Mm-hmm. What did you say, uh… and you are.”
“My name is Alex Mika Peltra. Thank you for inviting me today.”
His Highness Elias spoke to Alex-sama. Originally, it is proper manners to speak to the male side first, after all!
“Ah, that’s right. Peltra… has changed quite a bit from the last time I saw him, hasn’t he?”
The clothing that Alex-sama is wearing is probably much cheaper than what he wore during the previous ceremony, but it suits him much better.
“Yes. With the advice of my wife, I started to pay attention to my appearance.”
“How is Wilhelmina? She was a proud woman among the aristocracy, are you not having a hard time?”
“No, she supports me as a good wife. I am grateful to the Crown Prince who introduced her to me.”
His Highness, who did not get the reaction he expected, seems to be displeased, but he cannot blame the person who showed gratitude. He keeps his mouth shut.
Then Miss Madetoya stepped forward to greet the ladies.
“Wilhelmina-san, it’s been a long time.”
“Madetoya-sama is also beautifully dressed. The peacock has beautiful feathers.”
She smiles and touches the feather decoration on her head.
“Hehehe, Wilhelmina-san thinks so too?”
She probably said these words with all her heart. No irony, no underlying meaning!
The pureness that is impossible for a noble and the foolishness that is impossible for a queen. That’s probably why His Highness is attracted to Miss Madetoya.
“I am very pleased.”
“Ina decorated this garden! How do you like it?”
She pointed to the decoration in the center of the garden. This is what I told Alex-sama earlier that her sense was bad.
I showed them a soft smile.
“The strength like a midnight sun and the delicacy like a remaining moon in the daytime. It expresses a unique and novel beauty that I can’t imitate.”
“Oh, thank you!”
I bowed my head again to the two of them.
“May the two of you support each other and remain close forever. The two of you match each other like the sun and moon shining straight.”
“Y-Yeah. You too.”
His Highness, seemingly at a loss for words in response to my congratulations, turned his back on us.
Some of the nobles who were lined up gave us a startled look.
I whisper to Alex-sama.
“I was able to drive out His Highness more easily than I thought. Then just join in the toast and leave when the time is right. Do not drink more than you can sip.”
“Oh, I understand.”
I don’t think it will go as far as poisoning, but there is a possibility of damaging one’s honor with something that will cause vomiting.
Thus, we passed the garden party without going to a place where we would be inconspicuous but not in the spotlight.
But a voice was calling to me like that.
