“From today onwards, the sinner’s statuses will be stripped, and his female ward will live as a low-leveled maid at the Royal Palace.”
Stellen Kingdom, Ayla Serdian who was the daughter of the most reputed Count.
Because of her father’s embezzlement of a national treasure, she lost her noble status overnight and became a maid at the royal palace.
A man approaches her. Theon Ennedi, the grandson of the King of the Stellen Kingdom.
“If you ever eavesdrop again on the royal family, you won’t come out unscathed.”
He, who was cold at first, says something unexpected.
“If you tell me to stop… I won’t push it.”
Soon the distance between them slowly shrunk, enough for their lips to touch. The light mint scent coming from him tickled Ayla’s nose. As Theon’s unusually rough breath caressed her forehead, her whole body tensed up, holding her gasp.
“I wish you would look at me.”
“If you don’t like it, I will stop.”
Her reason was telling her to refuse him. But under the control of Theon’s voice, asking for her permission as if taming her, the words hardly came out. “I do not… hate it.”
