“Princess, are you going to the Black Tower?”
When I returned to the Emerald Palace, Lilian was the first to greet me as usual. Lately, I had been going to the Black Tower frequently, so I think she’d become more used to it.
“Oh Lilian, you smell amazing.”
I took in the delicious scent and clung to Lilian.
“I’ve just baked a financier. I’ll bring it to your room.”
PR/n: Financier is a small French almond cake.
A warm, motherly smile spread across Lilian’s face. As expected from her. How did she know that I was hungry for snacks, and had it prepared perfectly just in time for my arrival?
“Princess, I’ve prepared the invitations on the table.”
“Oh, thank you, Ces.”
As soon as I entered the room, I began to familiarize myself with the invitations that were arranged on the table.
Since the invitations had already been filtered through before being presented to me, there actually wasn’t a lot for me to pay attention to. In fact, because of this, I only had a few things that I had to accept and decline.
I sat on the sofa and read the invitations that were in front of me. Today, I felt good and very refreshed because I had finally finished explaining the magic formula. I would have felt more relieved if I had brought the topic up sooner.
Up until now, the magicians in the Black Tower didn’t seem to worship Emperor Aeternitas, but the practices that he had left behind.
Wow… Come to think of it, I’ve improved a lot too? I never thought I could alter Emperor Aeternitas’ formula, which was well-known among the Emperor’s most powerful magicians! I’m so thrilled just thinking about it!
Honestly, I hate to admit it, but Lucas has been a major influence on me before I became this good. Alright I admit it, he’s a genius!
“Princess, have some of these while you look through the invitations.”
As I was enjoying my time alone, Lilian came to my room with a snack.
“Oh, is that coffee?”
“Yes, I remembered the princess had taken a liking to it last time. It was delivered to our palace a while ago.”
Obelia originally had no coffee, but seeing that Lilian recently gave me the new product imported from Arlanta to try, that must mean it was also presented to the Emerald Palace. Although, I don’t know if it’s actually coffee.
Its faint scent enveloped the air around me and I quickly fell in love with the taste. Black tea is also good, but I missed this taste. Of course, instant coffee doesn’t suit my taste, but this one is good.
Even when I grew older my taste buds remained a little childish. By ‘a little childish’ of course meant that I generously poured sugar into the coffee Lilian had brought me.
“Lilian, let’s sit here and eat together.”
“I’m full just watching you eat, princess.”
It would be nice if we could eat together, but I couldn’t get myself to say it again because Lilian was watching over me with her warm mother’s smile.
She still liked to do things by herself throughout my life. Things like making me snacks or brushing my hair. She would still watch over me as I went to bed. I loved it, so I didn’t stop her, even though I’m 17 now.
“When did the princess grow up this beautiful…”
Over the past two years I have grown a little taller and I’ve lost my childish features. My face has become slimmer, and my body has developed more distinctive curves.
Perhaps that’s why Lilian mutters to herself quite often these days when she’s staring at me. I smiled at her and said playfully.
“I’m always pretty.”
“Of course. The princess has been the prettiest baby in the world since she was born.”
A-ahem. She still responded to my jokes seriously. I was a little shy, but her affection was one of my favorite things in this lifetime.
Perhaps that’s why I keep acting like a baby with Lilian. After eating my snacks, I rolled around while looking at the invitations, and then headed to the Emperors’ Palace.
“Daddy, time to take a break!”
Today, he has been locked up in his office and has been struggling with documents. When I opened the door and entered, he lifted his head. The dark circles under his eyes were plainly visible.
At first, I was careful not to disturb him, but he has been working for so long that I knew he wouldn’t stop until dawn unless I did. Like yesterday, Daddy closed his eyes for a while and then opened them as I came for my visit.
“Yes, your highness.”
At Daddy’s quiet call, Felix, who was standing behind me, bowed his head and replied.
“I feel like I’ve become a dog that needs to be leashed and walked. Was it just my imagination?”
“Princess Athanasia has such a beautiful heart. She comes to His Majesty’s office every day because she’s worried about His Majesty’s health, and this is the response she gets….”
“Yeah, Daddy. A dog walking on a leash is a bit much.”
“Besides, whether it’s an animal or a person, both must stretch their legs and get some sunlight, Your Majesty.”
Great job, Felix! Maybe it’s because we’ve known each other for so many years. Now we get along pretty well, right?
It’s hard to believe that it’s Felix who was like the old days. Uh-huh, of course, there were a lot of anecdotes that couldn’t be heard without tears.
Pr/n: Confusing a little? The direct translation is calling him an old snowbird, which is usually a name for a person who migrates from the colder parts of a continent to warmer parts during winter. I don’t really get how that applies to Felix.
The space between Claude’s brows wrinkled at Felix and my tactful persuasion. Rather than fight it, it would be easier to just give in!
“Come on Daddy, finish what you were doing and let’s go out together. Like Felix said, a person should get enough sunlight and take a walk outside.”
Daddy sighed as if he disliked our ideas, but that didn’t stop me.
“Then I’ll wait here patiently.”
I sat down on the fluffy sofa with a smile. Hmm…strange. Two years ago I definitely changed the sofa in my room to the same one as this, but why does it feel different here? And… Why does it feel like the sofa here is softer?
I wanted to test the softness of this sofa more, but I decided to let it go. I thought it would bother Daddy if I kept standing and sitting.
“Daddy, let’s go to the Rose Garden today, I’m tired of staying here every day.”
After a while, I grabbed his arm and left the Emperor’s Palace. Felix was following behind on his own.
Daddy always tried to get Felix out of his sight and would make him take ten steps away from us. So, after being scolded so many times, Felix no longer came close when Daddy and I were together.
At first, every time I visited him, Felix would always get kicked out. He would get depressed and disappointed, but these days, I think he’s used to it.
U-umm, but if you look at it again, does that mean Felix got bullied enough that he actually got used to it? Hehe. Felix, are you feeling a little upset right now…?
“See, you’re also happy to be outside, right?”
“If you stay indoors because it’s annoying, you’ll become weak. You should mind your age, Daddy.”
I could see Daddy frown at my statements. Hehe, are you offended that I talked about your age? But it’s true.
Of course, Daddy was proud of his beauty even through the stressful years, but what did you do to keep your skin looking so young? Even though your face is downcast from exhaustion.
If I said that though, Daddy would just deny it, but even if I don’t, I couldn’t help but worry about his usual amount of work. He was stuck in the office all day and his sleep schedule was irregular.
“I told you to sleep on your bed, right? If you keep doing this, I’m going to move the sofa.”
He can’t seem to break his habit of sleeping on the sofa. Even if you’re resting you should have done it comfortably. But because of my words, Daddy was muttering like he had a headache.
“This girl keeps nagging me day in and day out.”
“But who else would care about you like this if it wasn’t me?”
You’re not going to listen even if Felix says it a hundred times. I have to nag like this, so you’ll at least take care of your health.
Don’t you think you should compliment me? Don’t you think you should be nice to me for being the only one here for you?
But Daddy is Daddy. Instead of praising me, he’d rather mutter to himself with his voice full of regret.
“I don’t want my daughter to treat me like a dog, do this, do that, every day.. I don’t want to hear nagging. I’ve done as much as I could.”
Uugghh, why do you keep saying I’m treating you like a dog? Are you saying that if I take someone for a walk it means that I’m treating them like a dog? Uh… It does feel like I forced you a bit but….
“By the way, aren’t you tired of this garden now?”
Daddy, who was looking around for a while, suddenly asked me. When I heard him, I broke away from my thoughts and looked around. We were in a flower garden full of pink roses in bloom. Of course, this place had been created by daddy in the past.
I’m perfectly fine with it, but is Daddy tired of it?
“Should we change the route that we walk next time?”
Cough, I sounded like a pet owner thinking about the walking route of their dog. It’s all because Daddy’s treating me like one!
As soon as he slowly opened his mouth, Felix, who was behind him, approached Daddy as if he had been waiting for it.
“Yes, Your Majesty. Did you call me?”
“Tell the gardeners to turn this place into a tropical arboretum tomorrow.”
Gasp! I stopped and stared at him bewildered. No, what are you talking about all of a sudden? Felix, who was approaching Daddy, had also flinched at a random demand.
“Tropical Arboretum… Are you sure?”
“Yeah. I think Athanasia is tired of the Rose garden by now.”
What? Me? Suddenly my mouth dropped open in embarrassment.
“Daddy, when did I say that?”
“Last time, I heard that the garden tended by Marquis Irene was quite impressive. The name of the flower was…….”
Oh wait! Why are you doing this right now?!
“Oh yes. Are you talking about Aristolochia Elegans?”
QC/N: it’s a real plant… You can Google it if you are curious about how it looks….
Cough! I almost spit at that luxurious name that came out of Daddy’s mouth.
“Aristolochia Elegans… There was a flower with a name like that. I’ll be sure to remember its name.”
The flower’s name that these two men continually recited with serious faces was so elegant that I found it a little funny. But it doesn’t suit them! So stop talking about it with such serious faces and elegant pronunciations!
