I Became The Childhood Friend of the Obsessive Second Male Lead - Chapter 73
She wanted to give something that will leave a deep impression.
Because she plays an important role in the original story.
Speaking of the Princess, she is the one who becomes the most reliable support for the female protagonist.
So, once she became acquainted with the Princess, she might later introduce the heroine to Rieta as her friend.
If that happened, Rieta would be more helpful to Noel.
It was the perfect plan.
So, the gift to make a first impression on the Princess was very important.
If possible, she wanted to give what the Princess enjoyed right now but she didn’t know her.
What Rieta did know about the Princess only applies to when she will be in her twenties.
To find out the answer to this question, Rieta also discussed it closely with Noel.
“Noel is a cousin to the Princess, right? Do you know what she likes?”
“How would I know that?”
“. . .”
Rieta regretted asking Noel such a delicate question.
Speaking of that indifferent supporting male lead, he didn’t really know what the female protagonist’s likes and wants from the original story.
It was the role of Hugh McLean, the male protagonist, to possess such knowledge.
So, it was impossible for Noel to see through the tastes of his cousin sister, whom he rarely met.
I can’t help it.
She could only apply a little of the original knowledge.
By all means, she wished that the taste of the Princess would remain unchanged.
The sixteenth birthday was very important in this world.
This is because, as of that day, any rights that had been entrusted to the guardians were fully returned.
Of course, as long as they relied on their parents for money, they were not completely free.
However, most of the parents accepted the opinions of their 16-year-old children to some extent, helping them gain various experiences.
At the age of sixteen, a child moves one step away from their parents’ nest.
And today was it.
It was the Princess’s sixteenth birthday.
The Duke was worried that his brother, the daughter-fool, might have done something terrifying.
Now you must be careful.
When the Emperor steps forward and treats the Princess as an adult, the servants will respect her a little more.
However, it seemed that the Emperor did not have the consciousness of “She is now an adult.”
This time, it was not a house of sweets.
. . . An entire palace of sweets was completed.
Even a ribbon made of candy was hung on the roof.
The Duke pondered for a moment about what, where, and how to explain to his brother.
It was not something he could say right now.
As soon as the Duke, Noel and Rieta entered the banquet hall, the Imperial family members arrived.
Rieta, like everyone else, bowed her head to greet them.
The Emperor and the Princess greeted and thanked the guests, and the birthday banquet began immediately.
In addition to Rieta, guests from other countries had arrived at this place.
They in turn presented gifts to the Princess and blessed her in the future.
From jewelry to textiles to rare animals. Various gifts followed.
Of course, the Princess never opened the gift with her own hands.
She only stood in front as her attendants opened it up and checked that there were no problems.
Then the Princess contemplated the gift, smiled and said,
“Thank you. I will cherish it.”
Rieta secretly compared the splendid things they had given her and the gift she had brought.
Was it too modest?
No matter how she looked at it, it didn’t fit the atmosphere of the party.
But with the money her father gave her, she couldn’t even afford a large jewel.
Besides, the original Princess was more than that . . .
The Duke called out to her in a small voice.
When she suddenly came to her senses, many people were looking at Rieta.
Perhaps the servant had said that it was Rieta’s turn to hand over the present, but she seemed to have stood still, not listening.
“Sorry, I’m sorry.”
A bit perplexed, the Duke nodded slightly with a stern face.
It was as though he were telling her to calm down.
As she turned her head slightly, her eyes met Noel as well.
Noel nodded his head like the Duke . . .
For some reason, she had an anxious face.
“Princess, may I take you all the way to the center?”
The Duke held out his hand and asked, but Rieta shook her head.
Today, as the Princess of Liz, she didn’t want to borrow the hand of the Duke.
Proceeding to the center of the hall, one of the attendants soon followed with a gift box prepared by Rieta.
“Your Highness the Princess.”
As soon as she greeted the Princess according to etiquette, the Princess allowed her to be at ease.
“This is a gift from the King of Liz to congratulate the Princess on her sixteenth birthday.”
