ody, thinking that I should look into this later.
I didn’t want to let someone else wash me so I was doing it myself but the blue-green blood was not coming off easily so I had to rinse several times.
“I hope something like this never happens again…”
Demons might seem like nothing since I dealt with one so easily but before a Saint appeared about 800 years ago, a demon wiped out half of an entire country before it was finally destroyed.
That country is now part of the empire.
Apparently, the empire started a war while it was weak, taking advantage of its misfortune and absorbed the country.
I poured water over my wound and exhaled.
Becoming the Saintess Emilone improved my physical strength and gave my unimaginable powers but I was unable to heal myself.
“Come to think of it, I didn’t get an apology or a thank you.”
From the Crown Prince, I mean.
Even though I saved his life.
“He even took my shawl.”
It was my favorite shawl too.
I draped my soft and warmly cherished shawl around the crown prince’s shoulders.
Of course, I won’t be able to use it again but still.
The blood between my nails wasn’t coming off and I narrowed my eyes and looked down at my hands.
I saved a person today with these hands.
It was gross, scary, and disgusting at the same time but I guess it wasn’t too bad.
I tried to block the bright light with my hand but it was too lavish to cover it all so I ended up staring blankly at it.
I felt like I would get dizzy if I stayed here any longer so I finished washing up and went out.
When I got out, Reneben was waiting there.
Only then did I remember that I asked a servant to tell him to wait for me.
I realized that I was only wearing a robe and my hair was wet.
I tucked in the end of my robe again and beckoned to Reneben.
Reneben’s eyes darted all over the room, looking flustered.
Seeing his expression, I walked barefoot towards my desk then I handed him the file I had prepared in advance.
“Please send this to the Imperial Palace.”
“It’s information regarding the demon that attacked the Crown Prince.
The emperor will ask for this later.
I figured it would be better to send it over beforehand.”
I was about to tell Reneben that he could leave now but he stopped me.
Hair trickled down from my hair, drenching my robe.
Uh…a message just came from the Imperial Palace…”
Looking anywhere but in my direction, Reneben said, “There’s…going to be a party celebrating the Saintess instead of a reception for the hunting competition.”
“His Majesty wants to convey his thanks for saving the Crown Prince.”
“A party for me…”
“Although His Highness might not be able to attend because of his current condition.”
I’m guessing the party would be held either tomorrow at the earliest or the day after tomorrow.
Then than meant in the next couple of days, I was going to attend the party then have dinner at the Ducal manor.
I arranged the packed schedule in my head.
“Of course, if you are not up to it, Lady Emilone…”
Reneben was restless.
I stroked the wound on my cheek and nodded my head.
No reason not to go
“Let them know I will be attending.”
* * *
They called it a party for me but I suspect it’s more like a party for the Princess and her fishes.
“And Reneben too…”
The princess didn’t know that her true nature had been discovered, which is why I could enjoy this situation.
I put a blueberry muffin and honeyed milk in front of me as I thought of memorable tune.
I could still remember the melodies from idols and famous singers so I hummed to myself while taking a bite of the muffin.
When you keep eating the same western-styled food, you tend to get tired and find something else but it wasn’t like that for me.
I wasn’t picky at all so I could eat almost everything.
Still, there were times when I craved Korean food.
Now was such a time.
As with most aristocrat parties, it did not start until after sunset so I had plenty of time this morning.
I popped a piece of sweet muffin in my mouth, happily imagining what would happen tonight.
Suddenly, I remembered the surprise on Reneben’s face last night when he noticed my wound.
Honestly, I didn’t realize he hadn’t noticed at all.
Then again, I’m sure his head was occupied with thoughts of the princess.
However, the wound had already long disappeared due of my body’s excellent healing power.
*Ronella is a Duke’s daughter and called gongnyeo(Princess).
Her brother is a Duke’s son and called gongja(Prince).
To avoid confusion, I will use the title ‘ducal prince’ whenever he is introduced.
**This novel is so long with almost 2k words per chapter.
I feel like I’m translating YGTWHV again lol.
