She just said mom… I think she did.
In an instant, the accident stopped.
“Huh… Father, did you hear that?”
“Yeah, I think I heard too.”
Dad and I couldn’t take our eyes off Rustina.
Rustina spoke loudly again, as if confirming to me.
“Oh, Mom. It’s mom… ! Look at she’s genius!”
“Etricia. I think my granddaughter is smart just like me!”
When my father and I spit out the same words at the same time, everyone applauded.
“Oh my gosh! You’re so young, you’re already talking to me.”
Everyone melted away looking at Rustina, probably forgot that she was my daughter.
“Oh my gosh.”
Ugh… I thought I wouldn’t be happy, but I can’t seem to help it.
Everyone was upset at my words. My father got up from his seat and immediately shouted.
“To celebrate Rustina’s banquet today, I will hold a festival for a week!”
Rather embarrassed, I tried to stop my father, but all the aides nodded in agreement.
“I have to inform the people of this day as well.”
Surely, before the banquet, who was the child’s father, didn’t he stir me up? Why are you so gentle?
I put Rustina in my arms and smiled softly. Yes, as long as you are happy
“Now we just need to find your father.”
Rustina shook her head violently. There were so many jewels on the gold-colored dress that the light reflected brilliantly in the movement.
I faced the nobles who saluted Rustina’s in turn.
It was full of gifts as they were carrying so many things.
“Father, they didn’t know Rustina existed? How did everyone know and prepare for it?”
“Isn’t it okay as long as Rustina likes it?”
It must have my father’s commands…
Rustina opened her eyes wide and opened her mouth at the gifts laid out in front of her. Do you know if it’s yours or what?
Rustina’s eyes twinkle as if there was something she particularly liked. It was so cute how she struggled.
“Do you want to go over there?”
I handed Rustina to the nanny. The nanny cautiously headed towards the pile of presents.
As I was looking at Rustina with a happy smile, a handsome nobleman approached me and greeted me.
“Princess Etricia, long time no see.”
“…Have we seen before?”
I’m sorry, but I can’t remember when you say it like that. In fact, I can’t even remember anything.
I didn’t like the appearance of someone I didn’t know.
He had been shaking my hand without paying attention, and turned.
What did he see? Did he see something wrong?
I blinked at the sight of a man walking past the entrance.
His long, dark hair caught my attention. With every step he took, he even had the illusion that the night sky was overflowing.
Seductive red eyes gazed at me slowly. The languid lowered eyelids made his atmosphere stand out even more.
Soon, the man who stopped in front of me turned his gaze to Rustina, who was sitting on the pile of presents.
It was a small mumbled voice, but it reached me clearly.
And the moment I saw the man, I knew immediately who he was.
“I should have sent an invitation, not a threat. If I had, I would have brought a present.”
Kyrian lifted his head at the sound of my voice calling out to me and smiled softly.
Unlike his smiling face, his eyes shone fiercely. As if similar to mine, the other red eyes showed an unexpected hostility.
‘Why did you come here when you hate it so much?’
Still, he kept smiling.
I didn’t avoid Kyrian’s gaze.
The corners of his lips curled up a little, and then he stopped and come to me.
“You can’t go any further.”
The Imperial Guard stopped Kyrian.
“Oh, this. There are still many obstacles between you and me. I’m just here to see, so you don’t have to be so vigilant.”
Kyrian pushed the blade pointed at him with his finger. There was no scar on his long, slender fingertips.
Rather, the bewildered guards shed a cold sweat.
“Aren’t you going to do that? If I had made a fuss like this, the tower wouldn’t be any good.”
Unable to see, I got up from my seat and approached Kyrian.
Rustina cried and tried to crawl towards me.
“It’s okay, stay there.”
“Don’t worry, he came here just out of curiosity. He just stopped by on the way.”
Kyrian leaned over and reached out towards Rustina.
A flash of light flashed from his hand, and a belt quickly formed on Rustina’s arm.
“This is my gift.”
Rustina put on a puzzled expression on the belt that had formed on her body. When she tried to pull it with her other hand to no avail, she crawled hard to Kyrian.
Startled, I ran to Rustina and reached out.
Rustina grabbed Kyrian’s crotch and then sat down and lifted her clothes.
Then, without anyone stopping him, she opened her mouth and rushed to Kyrian’s leg.
Like a growling puppy, Rustina vigorously bit Kyrian’s leg.
Silence revolved around the banquet hall with sighs.
“… Are you biting me now?”
Kyrian let out a smirk and bowed his head. I took turns looking at Rustina and grabbed Rustina.
Rustina grabbed Kyrian’s leg with her arms and hung as if she wasn’t going to let go.
Why is she like this? Still, he’s a filthy person. I was terrified that he would do anything to the child, so I hurriedly consoled her.
“Leave him and come to my arms.”
To be honest, I wanted to bite him off and not let him go, but she might get hurt if he did.
“Do you want me to go? You didn’t even know what I got.”
“I don’t know what they gave me, but I don’t think they like it very much.”
I raised my eyes and looked up at Kyrian. He smiled with his eyes closed towards me and gave me a wink.
“Well, you’re still pretty.”
Suddenly? Are you saying that in this situation?
Even with my absurd expression, Kyrian seemed okay.
He lowered his upper body and made a transparent bubble in front of Rustina’s eyes to catch my attention.
The bright eyes shifted her gaze to the drops flying in the air.
As she stretched out her hand and frantically caught her eye on the bell, Kyrian grabbed Rustina with one arm, not letting go of the gap.
Rustina was very angry and tried to get away with her short arms and legs. But Kyrian didn’t budge.
His red eyes sparkled like rubies. He put Rustina in his arms and spoke in a voice that was barely audible in her ear.
“You don’t know, but I guess she wasn’t a normal child.”
“… she’s my child and there is nothing you can’t say.”
I bit my tongue briefly and let out Kyrian as if reproaching me.
He chuckled and gently grabbed my hair and ran it between his fingers.
“Well, if you want, it will be a nightlife again.”
Kyrian shrugged as if nothing had happened. Apparently, he liked the night with me quite a bit.
We’re not that close, aren’t we?
Everyone in the banquet hall is frozen by Kyrian’s appearance, but it seems that they cannot see it.
“Kyrian Delfort, I think you’d better go back to your place, unless you’re declaring war on the Imperial Family.”
My father, who was watching the situation, finally gave an order to Kyrian.
“Oh, right. I forgot the Emperor was there.”
“But I have a question, and you must answer that question.”
Kyrian did not take his eyes off Rustina, who was in my arms, and licked his lips.
“Why didn’t you tell me when you had my baby?”
“… That’s it…”
I don’t even know who the father is. And at that moment, I found Damon in imperial attire coming in at the entrance.
As I turned my head, I saw Sir Hassel approaching me.
Above all else, doesn’t that indescribable pink hair stand tall among people? I didn’t invite him, so he seems to have sneaked in.
Fortunately, they didn’t hit or miss it, but… At Kyrian’s words, the heads of the three men turned to me at the same time.
At that moment, I firmly felt that something was wrong.
My eyes went back and forth as the three voices approached me.
‘It was X.’
It shouldn’t be like this. Things will get complicated if Dad finds out.
Looking down at Rustina once, I gulped down my saliva.
The strength in the hand holding the child entered without me realizing it.
For a moment, the silence was broken and Rustina’s voice was raised in the banquet hall.
Rustina reached out from my arms and pointed forward. At the same time, my gaze turned to the cute baby’s fingertips.
And there stood four men who had written letters to me.
