The Young Lady Tames the Main Leads - Chapter 19
Meanwhile, what was going on in the imperial palace?
Because the little princess made a sudden visit to the dress room and gave an order after sitting down on the sofa, a maid in charge of clothing gave a confused face. It couldn’t be helped because it was a request that didn’t suit the usual tastes of the princess.
“Princess, are you really referring to a red dress that’s brighter than a ruby ring and is clear like your highness’s eyes?”
“Yes, that one.”
“…Give me a moment. Your highness. I will find it quickly.”
Though she claimed that she would find it, she was already half expecting the result.
‘Sigh, what should I do.’
In this spacious dressing room, there definitely was no ‘red dress that’s brighter than a ruby ring and is clear like the princess’s eyes.’
‘Why did her highness who usually only prefers dark colored fabric change her tastes so suddenly?’
Princess Ninaina usually enjoyed wearing dark red, purple, or indigo fabric.
And on top of that, she preferred heavy fabrics like velvet or satin over light fabrics such as chiffon.
Yellow? White? Pink? That kind of fabric basically didn’t exist in Ninaina’s dictionary. But red!
‘If her tastes changed suddenly, there’s only one reason for it. She must have had a change of heart after going to the kindergarten today.’
The maid’s reasoning was very accurate.
Only what happened before in the kindergarten existed in Ninaina’s mind at the moment.
‘The eyes of Princess Nina are like jewels. They’re like…… like a ruby! They’re as pretty as a ruby
ring that my mom had. That’s why I wrapped it with a clear red ribbon like the eyes of the Princess.’
…she couldn’t stop thinking about the bright smile of Emir Saeron who said that.
Usually Ninaina didn’t wear a bright-colored dress even if she was gifted one, but for some reason, from today, she had a feeling that she was going to like a bright red color.
Of course it was definitely not because of what the young lady of Marquis Saeron said. At least that’s what Ninaina, herself, thought.
‘Well, at least she had good eyes. My eyes definitely look like rubies.’
Ninaina thought while she was looking at herself in the mirror and learning against the sofa in the dress room.
On her left hand, she wore a little ruby egg ring that she received as one of her birthday gifts last year. Until the maid arrived, she smiled while repeatedly looking between the ruby on that ring and her eyes.
After a while, when the clothing maid returned with two red dresses, Ninaina finally lifted her head.
“Your highness, I checked all the dresses one by one, but I only managed to find two dresses that were similar to the color that your highness has described. Please wear these for now and I’ll relay an order to the imperial designer to create a new dress.”
“…Well, it can’t be helped. I’ll try out the left one first for now.”
Ninaina smiled as if she didn’t feel that bad and pointed at the left dress. It was given as one of the gifts for the princess from when a merchant from another kingdom visited the imperial palace. It was a dress made of silk from western countries, and there was a big red ribbon attached to the chest. If it were usual, she would have complained about everything from fabric to the ribbon decoration, but this time, somehow…
“I like the ribbon.”
“It can’t be helped if you don’t like, wait. What? You like it?”
The maid, who was about to remove the ribbon and mend it anew, raised her head in surprise at the unexpected words. Ninaina stared at the ribbon on the center of the dress for a while then turned her head and replied.
“Yes. It looks exactly like that ribbon.”
The ribbon that was on the present that young lady Emir gave.
Nicholas, who was sitting in a rocking chair while reading a book, lifted his head as he talked to himself. Then, he tilted his head once more at Ninaina’s confident expression.
It wasn’t the usual Ninaina who always looked dissatisfied or had a cranky and expressionless face.
