The Princess of Hearts
Several Years Later
”Always keep your position in mind. If you
e not being spoken to, Kailer, don respond to the Princess, ” the carriage they were in resonated with a deep, low voice.
The young child nodded firmly as he observed his father holding a newspaper in his hands and reading it.
”Yes, ” he said.
”Okay, then. Kailer, you
e always like this. Keep going. Please never embarrass our family, ” said Duke Cloviar
Kailer nodded once more before lowering his eyes to the window of the carriage and looking outward.
They were quickly welcomed into the imperial family. The massive gate opened, causing the wagon to briefly stop. The massive entrance was immediately opened by knights from the front gate.
Kailers eyes glitter as he takes his first look inside the palace. His once-thin eyes grew wider as a result of the manner he roved them.
Maidservants appeared before his upper and lower lips gradually. He remained in that position for a moment before his father yelled.
”Behave yourself, Kailer. ”
”Yes, ” he said.
”Lets go now. ”
The two exited the carriage as they did. The coachman and the household attendants of the imperial palace welcomed them.
The maidservants led them just where they needed to go when they entered. Later, they took seats on the spacious banquet tables. Given that the sofa was plush and silky, it was typically decorated with golden linings.
Everyone would automatically assume that the imperial households possessions are wealthy and luxurious.
While they wait for his highness, the Duke grabbed a newspaper from their seats and read some of it, Velure said, ”It was soft and deep as usual. ”
Looking at his fathers intense gaze, Kailer had no intention of defying his orders and replied, ”Yes, my lord. ”
When they waited for a time, Kailers eyes grew dimmer as he read the newspapers front-page headline.
It was about a young womans body that was discovered last night in the Berzinni pub. Then he turned to look at his father instead of the paper
”Look at these people; they weren abandoning the market for publication. enough for news to become a source of revenue, ” the Duke spoke about the newspaper firm rather than being concerned about the deceased woman.
Kailer wanted to shake his head, but he restrained himself so that he could continue reading. Velure took the paper off his sight and clicked his tongue after they waited for a few more minutes.
”They had no idea what they were doing. Perhaps they should do something to clean up, ” through the space, Kailers eyes widened for an unspecified cause as his father muttered.
Perhaps it was the tone of his fathers voice or the ominous atmosphere emanating from behind him that caused it.
When Kailer noticed Velure widening his smile, his spine tingled until he heard a knock at the door from the guest room.
Then the two major event spotlights moved inside
Niker smiled and said, ”Greetings, Duke Cloviar, it was such a pleasure to see you here. ”
The Duke greeted his majesty and the Princess in the most formal way possible. In front of the emperor, he bowed his head and kept his eyes closed, suggesting respect.
In addition to Niker, his daughter was there, dressed in a simple yellow dress. After studying the Princess clothing, Kailers brows furrowed for a minute.
He believed she was the princess of this empire. What is she wearing, then? Kailer reflected that the young lady in front of them looked more like a lady-in-waiting than a princess.
But since his father had earlier lectured him on manners, he was unable to maintain his gaze on the Princess. He sighed and shook his head before turning to greet the emperor after first looking at the ground.
Kailer mimicked what his father had said and done, ”Greetings, Your Majesty and Princess. ”
Niker chuckled and motioned with his right palm in front of him for the two to take a seat.
The Princess then timidly grinned at the two and started acting in her usual fashion.
”Im happy to have you, Duke Cloviar. It appeared that you were successful in raising a wonderful young child, ” the two bowed once more and then sat as Niker talked.
Duke Velure said, ”Its always been a pleasure to have your majestys praise, ”
On the other hand, Kailer was unable to take his eyes off the Princess. Despite the fact that the Princess appeared uninterested in the old mens conversation, she acted in a polite manner.
”This is my daughter. Her name is Princess Neylia Cadmorry. Duke Cloviar, as I am aware. According to the details you sent me, your son is qualified to serve as my daughters personal knight. Duke Cloviar, is that all right with you? ” Niker asked the Duke. The old mans narrowed eyes were obvious.
”You may rest assured that I am alright, your majesty. I will always be appreciative of the opportunity to provide what I can to the imperial household. ”
”Good, Duke Cloviar, thats what I admire about you. You constantly act the same way. ”
”Your majesty, its always been like this. ”
Neylia drank one of the teas that the earlier servant offered, as the two elderly noblemen continued speaking. Her face appeared peaceful, yet there were no lights on her eyes.
Her eyes thinned as she turned her attention to the young lad, who she thought of as her own personal knight from her previous existence.
The young boy was looking at her and turned away as soon as their eyes connected.
Kailer experienced some warmth for the first time. Was it the time of year? Or was it just todays weather? Looking out the window at the bright surroundings, he asked himself.
The Princess appeared to be concentrating on her tea at this point, so Kailer, sneak another peak at her.
”Your majesty, Ill assume that he would start today if thats what it would take. ”
”Do you approve of that, Duke Cloviar? ”
”Your majesty, it has always been. ”
Following their discussion, the two honorable adults turned to face their kids while grinning widely.
”Neylia, greet the young son of Duke Cloviar, and young lord, meet my daughter, Neylia Cadmorry, the princess of this empire. You two must be friends from now on, ” Niker said as two pairs of eyes widened.
Neylia nearly choked on her tea, but she was able to blink and nod.
”My sons name is Kailer Cloviar, your majesty. Im hoping one day youll think of him. Please welcome my son Kailer Cloviar, Princess Neylia. ” After Duke Velure had finished introducing his son, Neylia grinned and said the same thing.
The Duke left Kailer and Neylia and said goodbye in a matter of seconds. The emperor did the same because he was busy.
As they made their way toward the hall, two people continued to stroll alone. Neylia then began to speak.
”Hello, may I address you by your name? ” Neyla enquired
”Don worry, Princess—-, ” The Princess interrupted Kailer during her giggles.
”So I suppose youll have to address me by my name as well. ”
”Princess, that is not something I can accomplish. Im solely here to serve you. ”
”Kailer, you serve me in more ways than one. You
e already my friend moving forward. I give you permission to call me by my name when we are alone, okay? ”
Kailer uttered ”N-Neylia, ” but his cheeks and ears were already scarlet.
”After that, please don be afraid to contact me if you find someone you love in the future. I might possibly aid you in locating her. ”
”Its not that, Your Majesty. ”
”What did I just tell you, Kailer? ”
”Im not that kind of person, Neylia. No, I wouldn fall in love. ”
”Lets check back in a few years, Kailer. So lets go, and Ill show you around our home more, ” Neylia stated while snatching Kailers arm.
Kailer experienced some warmth for the second time as Neylia led the way. His heartbeat became louder than usual as he looked at the smiling figure of the young woman clutching his hand.
The Princess was in front of him, and Kailer perceived the Princess to be a goddess as the dazzling lights caressed her physique.
At that point, Kailer made the decision to defend the Princess, more like acting on his heart rather than following his fathers or the emperors orders.
At all costs, he needed to keep her safe.
He immediately pledged his life to the first person who took his hand without hesitation and guided him to a light that was warmer than any other the instant the Princess stated they are friends.
”Me too, Neylia. I wanted to be your friend. ”
Neylia was ready to enter her room and accompany Kailer to his allotted room after showing Kailer when a maidservant alerted her to some words.
She opened her eyes at that point, but when she caught Kailers sight, she grinned and seized his hands once again, leaving the maid with wider eyes.
The maidservant said, ”Princess Neylia really is hyper these days, ” and then she shook her head and resumed her tasks.
In the meantime, Kailers brows were furrowing, but they stopped as Neylia unlocked the door to a guest room and revealed a familiar face.
”Pleased to meet you, Princess Neylia, Kailer? ”
”Oh, so you two are acquainted? Okay, from this point forward, we three will be best friends! ”
”Neylia, whats going on in here? ” Clistaine questioned
”Yes, whats going on in here? ” Kailer queried
The Princess only sighed when the two had finished looking at her.
”Okay, let me elaborate. Meet my personal knight Kailer, Clistaine, and Kailer, meet my fiancée Clistaine. ”
After that, both boys shouted
