Chapter 121 – I think it’s a fraudulent marriage (2)
Most of them were korean dishes, but there were also some others like steak and lobster.
They added my favorite foods among the dishes that were originally prepared. It seemed like the korean dishes were made in a hurry.
I was going to eat the steak, but I couldn’t cut it properly. It wasn’t because of the steak.
When I took over Ser’s body, my hands often trembled and couldn’t move properly.
So I unconsciously had a hard time using my hands.
My habits remained even after I returned to my original body so I still found it difficult to use the knife.
“Ancia, let me.”
Blake exchanged my plate with his plate.
He had already sliced up the steak on his plate so it was easy for me to eat.
Before, I used to be the one to cut his food for him.
I looked at Blake as the memories of our past filled up my mind. Then, I heard Tenstheon’s voice.
Tenstheon cut up the shrimps and put it on my plate.
I ate the other foods on my plate before finishing the shrimp and steak.
“This is delicious.”
“Try this too.”
“There is already too much food on my plate.”
I shook my head as the two of them kept putting food on my plate.
They looked at each other. Then both of them opened their mouths.
“Wife, are you sick?”
“I’ll call the doctor right now!”
“No it’s not that! I’m full!”
I shouted embarrassedly.
I had to stop both of them before they really called for a doctor.
After finishing my meal, Blake and I went back to the Palace of Forens.
Blake escorted me as I got up to get out of the carriage. When I got off the carriage, I saw the red carpet from the carriage to the entrance.
The knights were lined up on both sides.
Now I had Ancia’s body. That’s why they prepared all this.
“Greetings to the blessing of the empire.”
The knights and servants behind them greeted us.
We walked down the red carpet while holding hands.
At the door stood Melissa, Hans, Terry and Edon.
It was nothing new since we already saw each other everyday.
But this time, we reunited with me as Ancia, not Rose.
“Sir Edon, thank you for the welcome.”
“Please speak to us casually, Your Highness.”
Edon was confused about what to do.
When he hesitated to say more, Hans helped him.
“Yes, please speak comfortably, Your Highness.”
I tried not to voice out my nervousness. I looked at Melissa standing on the side and saw the tears rolling down her face.
“Melissa, why are you crying?”
“I’m sorry that I failed to recognize you before. I don’t have the face to look at Your Highness.”
“It’s only natural that you didn’t know because I didn’t tell you.
“But I’m so ashamed of myself.”
“Don’t say that. I’m sorry I couldn’t tell you.”
I grinned as I held Melissa and Hans’ hands tightly.
“Melissa and Hans, I know this is too late, but congratulations on your wedding.”
I said what I had always wanted to say since I came back.
Melissa sobbed even harder.
I hugged her and patted her back for a long time.
Blake and I entered the Crown Princess’ bedroom.
I had been into the Palace of Forens, but I never really visited his room.
The room was the same just as how I decorated back then.
“How is it?”
“It’s cute, but it’s a little embarrassing.”
It was very cute, like the bedroom of a princess in a fairytale book.
I was embarrassed to see how hard I pretended to be a child back then.
‘I chose something like that…’
Come to think of it, I remembered something. I also chose the furniture for the guest room.
Melissa and the furniture owner were surprised, saying that my taste was mature and refined, unlike a child.
I was glad to hear that remark and decorated my room as cutely as I could.
The furniture in the bedroom was also the same, but to think that my taste was this bad once…
‘It’s okay, I was young before.’
It was even more embarrassing because of the atmosphere.
“Is your room the same as before too?”
That’s right, I chose his room’s furniture too.”
“Would you like to see it?”
I nodded. We went into the Crown Prince’s bedroom that was next to this room.
Fortunately, this place was fine. I didn’t overdo it when I decorated Blake’s room.
Past me, good job.
As I was praising myself, I noticed a small doll lying beside the bed.
Oh right. I picked that one.
It looked so much like Blake that I impulsively bought it.
It would’ve been really cute if it was the young Blake holding it, but it didn’t match the majestic Crown Prince now.
“You still have the doll?”
“Why didn’t you throw it away?”
“Why would I throw it away?”
I touched the rabbit doll’s ears.
The fur still felt soft as if it had been meticulously cared for.
Then I laughed.
“You look like-”
“You look like the doll.”
I held the rabbit in my arms.
Blake’s expression hardened.
“It doesn’t look like me.”
“Why? I think it looks just like you.”
Seeing my happy smile, Blake’s expression hardened again.
Come to think of it, he looked like that when we were eating too.
I suddenly realized something.
“What’s wrong Blake?”
“Do you think I am handsome?”
It was a random question.
“Father is still the most handsome man in the empire. His appearance hasn’t changed at all.”
Tenstheon was even cooler than before. He looked just as young as he was before.
“What about me?”
“Blake is the most beautiful man in the empire.”
Tenstheon’s aura was overwhelming, but Blake’s aura was mysterious and beautiful.
Now, I think I realized why Blake’s appearance was praised so much in the novel.
He pouted as if he didn’t like my answer. Even when he was sulking, he still looked beautiful.
“I like your beautiful face.”
His expression soon brightened.
“Do you mean it?”
I never even thought that I didn’t like Blake’s appearance.
A thousand years ago, Rakshul’s aura was similar to that of Tenstheon.
But Blake took after the late Empress, so he looked beautiful.
However, as long as it was Blake, it didn’t matter how he looked.
“I love you Ancia.”
“I love you too.”
I wanted to say it so many times that I wouldn’t ever regret not saying it enough times.
I touched the left side of his face, which was once engraved with the curse marks, when he laughed and held my hand.
“Whose room should I sleep in today?”
Of course Blake would sleep in his room, and I would sleep in mine.
Did I even have to decide?
“We can sleep in our own rooms.”
I answered without any hesitation prompting him to look at me sadly.
“You said we will always sleep together…”
“Oh no, back then…”
I only did it to lessen Blake’s pain before.
Besides, we were children before.
But now we were both adults.
Blake was wearing a shirt that was rather loose, but I could feel his sturdy stomach behind the shirt.
Of course, his figure was relatively thin compared to the knights, but he was an adult man now.
Perhaps it was because his curse was lifted much sooner than scheduled and he practiced swordsmanship since he was young, but he looked much taller and muscular than what was described in the novel.
“Why? Don’t you like me?”
He looked down pitifully.
My heart ached when I saw him like that.
Blake was the type to hide his pain without showing it.
But his heart was quite tender.
“Of course I like you.”
“You’ll be with me then right? You’re not gonna go away right?”
His beautiful eyes started to glisten with tears.
“Of course not! I won’t leave you.”
“Yes, I’ll be with you forever so don’t cry.”
I held him tightly and soothed him.
The first thing I saw when I opened my eyes was the face of a beautiful man.
‘Why did this happen?’
I wanted to comfort Blake because I thought he was hurt and reassured him that I wouldn’t leave again.
So I came to comfort him, but somehow, I fell asleep on the same bed as him.
Of course, nothing happened. I just held his hands tightly and slept like before.
I looked at Blake sleeping beside me.
With his eyes closed, his eyelashes appeared to be longer.
He looked the same as he did when he was younger.
He still looked cute and harmless, bringing peace to my heart.
Well, this isn’t bad either. I couldn’t believe I could see Blake as soon as I woke up again.
This was really not a dream.
I wanted to stroke Blake’s hair but Blake tightly grasped my hands.
It was exactly the same as before.
Blake slowly opened his eyes while smiling.
At that moment, the pure and peaceful atmosphere suddenly changed.
I looked at the man who had become rather sexy, unlike seven years ago.
