e to unconsciously step back.


“What, what’s this?”


“Oh my goodness.”


When the sub-lead, Aegis, called out to Charlotte, she finally came to her senses and quickly withdrew her hands, apologizing to me.


“Oh, goodness.
I’m sorry, Lady.
You’re so small, adorable, cute, and lovely that I just couldn’t help myself.”


Did Charlotte react this way when she first met Royina? When writing, I had only expressed that Charlotte had thought Royina was pretty from a young age, so I hadn’t expected her to act like this.


“Shall we sit down for now?”


The garden of the palace was adorned with beautiful lavender flowers, which bloomed in a lovely purple color and gave off a pleasant aroma.


“Do you like the garden?”


I nodded my head as Charlotte spoke to me, still staring absent-mindedly at the garden.
While I had become more composed since we first met, she still looked at me with the same intensity.


Ignoring her uneasy gaze, I focused on the desserts on the table.
They all looked so delicious.
Charlotte smiled at me and personally placed a strawberry cream cake on my plate.


As the cakes were passed around to everyone, I didn’t hesitate to pick up my fork and take a bite of the strawberry on top first.
After all, you should always eat the best part first.
I quickly devoured the strawberry and licked the cream off my lips.
That’s when Julian asked me,

 “Is the strawberry good?”


“Yeah, it’s mine, Dad.”


 I said, naturally reaching over and stealing a strawberry from Julian’s plate.
He laughed and pushed his plate towards me.
As I ate my second strawberry, a new one rolled onto my plate.
It was quietly given to me by Aegis, who was eating his cake in silence.




How can someone’s eyes be so blue? I didn’t like the typical prince charming type, but As was insanely beautiful, penetrating my taste.
If Urien had a divine beauty, As had a doll-like beauty.
It felt like an expensive ball-jointed doll? I stared at him blankly for a moment before coming to my senses.


“Thank you.”


As smiled broadly in response to my gratitude.


“Eat a lot.”


‘Wow, a doll is smiling.’


He’s going to grow up to be a 190-pound big dog later? That’s impossible.
With a strange sense of dissonance, I shook my head and put the third strawberry in my mouth.
As was still grinning at me.
He didn’t care about my cake at all.




Shallote, who was looking back and forth between me and As, let out a small sigh and brought up the topic.


“I heard from Philias last time that he mentioned engagement to both of you.”




“I’m sorry.
I did say that I wanted the two of us to be friends first, but I didn’t know Phileas was going to propose so suddenly.”


Upon hearing this, Julian smirked.
It was the expression of someone who had expected it.


“I thought it might happen.
Russ is that kind of guy.
The Empress Dowager is not at fault.
And Russ doesn’t seem to be taking it seriously yet.”




“It’s still far off.
For now, I hope they can just be good friends.
They’re both lonely because they don’t have many friends.”


“Oh, Julian.”


A polite and clean response, very good.
When Julian drew a clear line, Charlotte also looked relieved.
On the other hand, As looked at the adults with a bewildered expression.


“Am I going to marry with Talia?”


I heard a creaking sound in my throat at the mention of marriage.
Wait, when did the discussion progress to marriage? Julian patted my back and looked at As with a subtle expression.
It was his way of expressing his displeasure as much as possible without making the little kid upset since he couldn’t blame the clueless kid for anything.


“Sometime, if His Royal Highness the prince meets someone he truly loves, he should marry her.”


“But Abamama said it would be good if the royal family and the Duke of Lemetrio were to merge.”


I looked up and saw As staring at me.
The words coming out of the doll-like prince’s mouth were somewhat pure, but not at all childish.


“What is he saying?”


“That’s right, As.
You should only marry someone you truly love.
But if you’re too concerned with things like your family, you might not be able to meet someone you really love.”


“But what about what other people say…?”




When Sharlotte called As’s name affectionately, he seemed to ponder for a moment before changing the direction of his question.


“Then, if I love Taleia, can I marry her?”


Only if the Duchess also loves you can you marry her.”


At Sharlotte’s answer, As looked at me with hopeful eyes.
Because of the strange discomfort I had been feeling for a while, I could only respond sharply.


” You’re not my type.”


With one short sentence, everyone fell silent, but I didn’t really know what was going on.
What I sell is a black-haired male lead.
Even if he looks like a doll, he’s not a prince character.


“So I will never marry you.”


Shocked by my stubborn refusal, As looked at me with a sad expression and spoke in a small, hesitant voice.


“I even gave you strawberries…”


Were they proposal strawberries? Crazy.


“Can you plow the road?”
