Chapter 64 – Tears of light (2)
Is she being sarcastic?
I never dreamed that I would hear from someone that being 13 is old.
I was amazed, so I folded my arms and looked at her.
Let’s see how far she’ll go.
She didn’t even care about my reaction and pushed her daughter to the front.
“Sharon, don’t you want to congratulate the crown prince?”
Sharon smiled broadly and ran towards Blake as she hold his hand.
“Your Highness congratulations. I was scared because everyone said that you’re a monster, but you look beautiful in person. I must have been scared for nothing.”
No matter how young she is, that is too much.
I was going to say a word to her, but before that, Blake shook off her hands.
“Let me go.”
“Your Highness, I’m sorry. My child is young.”
Viscountess Perion made a hasty apology, but Blake’s face express his irritaion as he rubbed his hands on a handkerchief.
“Who give you the permission to touch me?”
“Well I like you.”
“You’re saying that to a married man? Did you receive any education? I don’t want to see you so get out of here.”
Blake said to the crying Sharon.
Viscountess Perion went out with her crying daughter without saying anything.
I was surprised too.
I’ve never seen Blake being this angry.
“Blake, are you upset?”
“Yes, they ignored my wife, I don’t want to see them again.”
He never even get angry even when he heard people call him a monster. I hugged him.
“You know, there will be a lot of girls like Sharon now who likes you.”
“I’m already married.”
“Blake, you’re the crown prince.there will be a lot of people who want a position next to you, even as a concubine.”
Besides, it wasn’t uncommon for the crown princess to change.
Since they haven’t register their marriage yet, the crown princess position can change anytime, depending on the crown prince or a political calculation.
Of course, Blake wouldn’t betray me.
“I don’t want that. I only want Ancia.”
“Really? There are a lot of girls who are much prettier than me.”
“Ancia’s the prettiest.”
“Tsk, you can’t change our mind, okay?”
“I won’t. I only like you.”
He said without hesitation.
I trust Blake too. I smiled and ruffled his hair when suddenly I can hear someone screaming.
[Save me! Save me! I’m scared!]
I turned my head in astonishment.
“Ancia, what’s wrong?”
“Didn’t you hear the sound just now?”
What was it?
I looked around, but I didn’t see anything suspicious.
“I must have misheard it.”
Tenstheon must be busy everyday, uncovering the cassils sins and punish some of the nobles who supported cassils.
However, he didn’t forgot to visit us and do sword fight with Blake despite his heavy workload.
“Let’s call it a day.”
Tenstheon hugged the exhausted Blake,
Blake naturally wrapped his hands around Tenstheon’s neck.
“You’re not pushing me away now.”
“Well, you’re going to continue even though i pushed you anyway.”
“Do you want me to carry you back?”
“Yes, my legs hurts.”
Tenstheon smiled at his son who was acting childish.
If Ancia shows up, he’ll beg Tensteon to put him down.
Blake wanted to look mature in front of Ancia.
When Ancia wasn’t there, he acted childish to Tenstheon.
Just like now. Edon approached them while Blake was still in Tenstheon’s arms.
“Is Your Highness done with the training?”
“Yes, he seems to be improving these days due to your training.”
“No,His Highness is talented. I haven’t done much.”
“No! Edon is a good teacher.”
Edon looked at Blake gratefully. Blake smiled in response.
“But Your Majesty, is it okay if you come here everyday? I heard you are busy…”
Blake asked him because he knew about the cassils incident.
“It’s alright. Collin is taking care of it.”
“Um, is Sir Collin okay?”
“Don’t worry, I paid him a lot of money.”
“Didn’t he have no time to spend even if he is paid a lot of money?”
Collin met Blake because he sometimes visited the crown prince’s palace.
Blake recalled Collin’s deepening dark circle.
Listening to the father and son conversation, Edon was silent.
Collin is a noble, he is also paid a high salary, is handsome and smart.
But now Edon only feels sympathy for Collin.
Maybe Collin will be overworked by the emperor all his life.
It’s not so good to be so talented.
Leaving behind his sympathy for the overworked Collin, EDon looked at the father and son smiling to each other.
It was fortunate that the relationship between those two got better. If it weren’tfor Ancia, even if the curse had been lifted, it wouldn’t be easy for their relationship to recover.
“Why don’t you hang out with kids your age before the ball? It would be helpful to build friendship.”
It was a friendly advice, but Blake gave a rather sour response.
“Edon,what do you know about kids my age?”
“Haha, what do I know? If I remember about my days in the academy, everyone was a little rough. With the sword on their hands, no one is as cute as you. Oh my, I’m sorry.”
Knowing Blake wanted to look mature, Edon quickly apologized.
“Yes, I’m cute.”
Blake responded rather indifferently. Blake always hear from Ancia that he is cute, so it was always ingrained in his mind.
There were times when he thought of himself as a monster, but not anymore.
Rather, he accepted the fact that he is cute.
He now had no complex about his appearance.
That’s why I was glad that the curse have been lifted.
Tenstheon smiled warmly at Blake, who now had confidence in himself.
It was all thanks to Ancia that Blake was able to grow into this confident man.
“Your Majesty, will you invite some of the children to the palace?”
“I guess so.”
Tenstheon smiled and dropped Blake off when he saw that Ancia is coming from far away.
As soon as Tenstheon put him to the ground, he ran to Ancia.
“Blake, did you enjoy the training today?”
“Wow, really? That’s great!”
“I will catch a dragon for Ancia later!”
“Hey it’s dangerous! Don’t do it.”
“Nothing is dangerous.”
Blake bluffed in front of Ancia. Tenstheon looked at his son and daughter in law interaction with a smile.
“Oh, the designers will come soon.”
“Did they have to come?”
“Why not? You don’t’ want to meet them?”
“I’m just embarrassed that many people will see me.”
“Well, the designer do have a lot of subordinate. It’ll be convenient because you need to try a lot of clothes and shoes.”
“I want to be alone with Ancia…there will be too many people.”
Tenstheon was confused when he saw Blake acting shy and cute in front of Ancia.
“Yes, Your Majesty.”
“Did the crown prince always act like that in front of Ancia?”
Edon was puzzled, unable to understand his question.
“Didn’t Blake wanted to look mature in front of Ancia?”
“Yes, he did.”
“But why did he act like that?”
Tenstheon looked at Blake who was still acting cute in front of Ancia.
Only then did Edon understand Tenstheon’s question, and he burst out laughing.
“He’s doing that to make himself look better.”
“He won’t look mature acting that way.”
“But Ancia likes that cute side of Blake. He wanted to act mature in front of Ancia, but he wanted to please Ancia more with his cute side.”
“Haha, isn’t that what love is all about?”
