My Wish is Two Separate Beds - Chapter 16
That’s when Endimion smiled, as he only does for her, and extended his hand.
Yeah, I guess it’s just me.
Julia got into the waiting carriage, holding his familiar hand with a smile. Today’s preliminary inspection was also done by Knight Tremburn, the head of security, who closed the carriage.
However, his hand trembled as he pulled on the hem of Julia’s swaying dress that was poking out the door.
“I, I’ll escort you comfortably.”
Click, the door closed.
As soon as the door was shut, Julia, who gracefully pretended not to know, looked back at Endimion to ask if he had seen the knight’s nervous movements. But instead she caught the sight of him coldly staring out the window, as though he was sending lighting with his glare.
“Mion, do you hate that Knight?”
“Ya, very much. I heard he’s a playboy who only lusts after married women.”
“What, really? I didn’t see him that way.”
“They say there’s been a lot of playboys these days. They’re dirty, so if other men try to kiss the back of your hand, refuse them. All right?”
“Okay, I got it.”
So that’s why he did that earlier, huh?
Julia muttered as she looked out at the Knight Tremburn with a hateful look. Endimion, who glanced at her, leaned against the seat with a satisfied face.
It was Knight Tremburn who suddenly became a rotten person for being tactless. The carriage procession he led was extended. It was a nice sunny day, for the first time in a long time.
A tearful cry of death sounded.
Julia put her bow down, as she wiped off her sweat. Mion, who had taken his sword and rode off on his horse, was back shortly after finishing his inspection.
“Good job. You got through the vital points completely.”
“Phew, that’s a relief. It’s been a long time, so I was worried that my skills would be rusty.”
“Whose student are you, saying such hurtful words…”
Julia burst into laughter at Endimion’s stern voice. With a bright laugh, Endimion put his sword away and raised the corners of his mouth.
“Thank you. It’s nice to be outside after a long time.”
Julia, who came from a rural country, was used to living in nature.
However, after becoming the Crown Princess of Semele, she was often frustrated because she had to stay in the royal castle. There was even a time when she couldn’t breath due to something similar to homesickness. It was only her husband, who lived with her every day, that noticed this.
During his time as Crown Prince, Endimion secretly brought Julia out to the training grounds. Although it was not a huge natural landscape, like her hometown, Julia could regain her breath by being able to run on an expanse of green grass.
At first, she spent time watching Endimion review what he learned that day. And then, naturally, she became his disciple, learning what he had been taught during his training.
Julia, who is naturally athletic, absorbed Endimion’s teachings. Although she was not as good as Endimion, who was called a genius swordsman, it was sufficient enough to protect herself.
That is how this young couple spent their blossoming adolescence.
“I think that’s enough for the inspection. Let’s get back before sundown.”
Today’s preliminary inspection was for tomorrow’s royal hunting contest. Numerous animals lived in the vast forest owned by the royal family, and the knights came to see the forest in advance.
Large dangerous wild animals, and great beasts who woke up from hibernation were cleared, leaving only moderate hunting. Likewise, dangerous beasts were being killed off since yesterday.
Therefore, Endimion and Julia were originally scheduled to depart tomorrow morning. But the reason they came to the hunting grounds a day earlier is because of Endimion’s consideration for Julia.
Julia, who hasn’t been outside of the palace in a long time, needed time to take a breath. Julia, who rode a horse and shot an arrow for the first time in a long time, got tired easily. But she felt very refreshed and happy. Endimion, while staring at Julia’s delight with the freshness of the green trees and grasses, also looked pleased.
Under the escort of knights, the King and his wife looked around the hunting grounds and finally turned their heads towards a shelter, not the royal palaces. Although they had already been out for inspections, the decision was made to enjoy freedom for a longer time.
