The Young Lady Tames the Main Leads - Chapter 26
‘Huh, it’s so unexpectedly cute…!’
And I really liked it.
The day before, I slept with my hair curled up so I had a curl that was just right and Alice drew my hair shaped like a spring, elastic and cute.
In addition to that, my distinctive eyebrows were very well expressed, so it could be used as a joke and a little add-on on the portrait.
“La, Lady Saeron. What is…?”
Alice carefully asked a question as she looked at me from the side.
I replied with a slight smile, unable to press down the tail of my mouth, which was about to come up.
“I really like it, Alice!”
“What a relief……!”
Alice replied with her eyes shining with sincere joy.
Somehow I made her feel better because I had boosted Alice’s confidence in herself.
So I complimented her a lot.
“Hehe. I like it so much that I want to take it home.”
“Oh, will you please?”
Alice opened her eyes wide and asked, as if her own painting was that good.
The teacher, who was listening to our conversation, said.
“Oh, of course, you can take the results of this class with you.”
If both of you allow it, I will take it without hesitation. Whoohoo.
I thought so in my mind and told Alice.
“Then, I will take this picture after the class is over. I want to put it in a pretty picture frame and hang it in my room.”
“I’ll show you later when Alice comes home to play.”
This is not like what adults say to come and play as a rough greeting.
I was really looking forward to the day Alice would come to my house to play.
This is because noble children at this time do not go to each other’s homes well unless they are close enough.
So, if Alice comes to see the painting in my room, it means we’ve gotten close to each other!
Alice stared at me with her touched eyes, quietly holding her hands together, she replied.
“I will definitely go to see it later…”
In fact, just because the two of us become close, does not mean I can invite Alice right away.
Because if Alice’s family is like in the original story, hmm.
Maybe she isn’t willing to have a friend that she has earned.
‘Anyway, there’ll come a time to solve it.’
Let’s focus on the pictures in front of usnow!
Teacher Perlende, who was watching the conversation between us just in time, opened my painting.
“Okay, look. This is a painting by Lady Saeron.”
I don’t know exactly who shouted first, but the moment my paintings were unveiled, the children rushed to me with amazing voices one by one.
Soon, round children’s heads gathered on one side of this table.
Even the prince, who was pretending not to be interested, folded the book he was holding and walked.
“Is this me?”
And Nina, who looked through the painting, asked without realizing. I nodded with a proud smile.
“Yes! That’s right.”
Every time Ninaina’s red eyes swept through the corners of the painting, Ninaina’s mouth went up little by little.
Of course, she doesn’t seem to have noticed that. Unlike the expression that clearly tells the degree of satisfaction, she just answers casually as if she were not fully satisfied.
“Do you like it?”
“Well… I’m not sure.”
Nina, carefully stroking the part of her eyes drawn with the pencil, she said so. Just in time, Nicholas uttered a word from the side.
“You drew well for a 6 years old.”
At the moment I heard it, I almost shouted.
‘No, hey! The prince is only 7 years old, too?’
Of course, Nicholas is a genius who flips and reads a thick book with a dirty long name, but it’s too sad to say that!! It feels like my mental age is being rated as 6 years old….
But after all, I was only a Marquis’ Lady, which was insignificant compared to the royal family, so I had to answer like this.
“Thank you for the compliment. Your Highness Prince Nicholas.”
“What. It’s okay if you don’t say thank you for anything like this.”
