I Became The Childhood Friend of the Obsessive Second Male Lead - Chapter 108
Noel was in a strange state, but she had no choice but to work hard today.
Rieta wore a light summer dress and brought sugar cookies to give to the Princess.
Coated with sugar and chocolate, it was made very sweet, and it was a snack rarely eaten by the Mayer family.
The cause was Noel.
He used to frown, saying that just looking at that ‘excessively sweet’ cookie made him sick to his stomach.
For the same reason as above, macarons were never served as a snack.
The female lead enjoys super sweet things, so I hope she likes it a little bit.
No, even if it was too much to like, at least she didn’t have to make a nauseated expression saying, ‘Wow, how do you eat something like that?’
Anyway, the Princess seemed to like sugary sweets very much.
Of course, Rieta knew the Princess liked this from the start.
Because in the original story, there was a scene where the leads regularly ate sugar cookies.
“The Princess always knows what I like very well.”
“Oh, it’s just a coincidence. I like it too.”
“Maybe we get along pretty well. Yes?”
It bothered Rieta to tell a little lie, but now she can’t help it.
Because I can’t answer that I only know by reading the original story.
After greeting the Princess, she was immediately introduced to the ladies of the capital who were close to the Princess.
They were all considerate of Rieta and were kind enough to say simple words.
Besides, they took care not to alienate Rieta from the conversation.
No, in fact, they made Rieta the main character of the conversation.
“Princess Rieta, is it true the rumor that the boy knight of Liz followed the Princess to the Empire?”
“Elisha is not a knight yet. But my closest fri-”
Rieta paused for a moment, then recalled what he had said in the past.
Rieta and him cannot be friends.
“Closest . . . person.”
Maybe because they liked the phrase ‘my closest person’, the ladies blushed as they squealed.
“It’s so romantic.”
“Loyalty to the Princess is wonderful.”
“By the way, the military academy is on vacation right now, isn’t it? It’s been a while since he’s seen you, so I think he’ll be very pleased.”
Rieta asked in surprise.
She used to write letters to Elisha like reporting, but she didn’t hear that he was on vacation.
When Rieta blinked her eyes and made a face as if she didn’t know, the girls panicked and started another story.
“Ah! That . . . have you heard about what happened at the border recently?”
“Sure. You have no idea how surprised I was.”
“It often happens that soldiers from other countries provoke each other, but I think this has definitely crossed the line this time.”
The story has now turned to the topic of peace agreements with foreign countries.
Rieta joking around moderately, worrying about Elisha.
If he was on vacation, it means he was not at the military academy right now.
She wondered where he stayed.
Did he return to Liz to see his family, just like Darrel stayed at the Duke’s mansion on vacation?
It didn’t seem like that.
As long as Rieta didn’t return, he would be in the Empire.
Where are you living?
She was worried . . .
Rieta cared so much about Elisha, but she didn’t want the young ladies she met for the first time to notice it.
So she put aside her thoughts on him and tried to have a good time.
“Princess, Princess of Liz.”
After a long time passed, the royal attendant cautiously approached behind the two of them.
Rieta naturally checked the time.
The fact that the servant came this way meant that the Duchy came to pick up Rieta.
Perhaps the butler came.
The Duke was busy, Darrel had gone to the academy, and Noel was too young to do this.
“Sir Noel of Mayer has come to pick up the Princess.”
“. . .!”
Rieta looked back at the attendant with her eyes wide open.
The servant wondered if Rieta had not heard, and once again said, “Sir Noel has come to pick the Princess.”
Was Noel really here?
Rieta wasn’t the only one who was surprised.
The Princess also admired, saying, “There is no other gentleman who is truly perfect.”
No. Absolutely not, Princess. Noel is not like that yet!
Rieta almost said that without thinking.
She covered her mouth with the palm of her hand, barely holding back.
“Princess, are you okay?”
“No, of course it’s fine. I, then, first of all . . .”
Rieta got up from her seat with a little haste.
If she stays here longer, she might say, ‘Princess, somehow Noel is weird these days!’
The Princess gently grabbed Rieta’s hand.
Turning around in surprise, she was smiling something that seemed to be happy.
For some reason, she looks like she’s making up something . . . Was it Rieta’s misunderstanding?
“I’m sorry I caught you all of a sudden. But I don’t know if it’s okay to send my cousin back, who has come all the way here.”
“Oh, no! How could it be? Noel doesn’t care about that. No, he will not.”
