Daughter of the Emperor
Ever since that day, when I went to the Imperial Palace Hospital, my interests had been pointed at Elyne and the man.
Luckily, Elyne didn’t realize that I was following her the other day. Somehow, everyone in the hospital knew about it. Of course, I warned them to keep it a secret, but I had to be careful with people. They could spread some nasty rumors.
Still, the reason why she had been particularly absent-minded these days was because of him, eh?
It made sense now that I was thinking about every single one of Elyne’s actions. Somehow she had been interested in my snacks lately. She was trying to give them to him, wasn’t she?! My chocolatier said that Elyne was ordering more snacks these days. Thus, he thought that I would gain a lot of weight, but he was surprised that I looked the way I would usually look like.
“Is something the matter?”
I was agonizing over what to do when suddenly, Assisi asked. I broke out in a cold sweat. Oh, he had quick wits.
“Hmm? No, nothing.”
I smiled at him while trying to look innocent, and Assisi tilted his head.
Elyne went out on an errand for Serira. When I asked mom where she was going, mom gave me a hint that Elyne was going to the Palace Hospital. As expected, Serira already knew.
I wasn’t the only one who was paying attention to this love affair. I called my personal grandpa doctor yesterday. I told him that my maid fell in love with this man, who was an assistant doctor under him. Then, grandpa promised me that he would roll up his sleeve and support them. He was interested in what was going on between them, so I did some fishing. Ahem.
Yeah, it’s fun to butt in on other people’s love affairs! Especially when it’s not mine!
Though I forgot about it because of my father, Assisi was well past the age of when people would marry too. However, he didn’t look like he was interested in dating or marrying. Assisi would make the perfect husband. Of course, this was not just my idea.
“Aren’t you going to get married?”
Assisi shook his head after hearing my question.
“No, I don’t have any plans to do so.”
“Oh, why not?”
I was surprised after hearing his firm reply and asked why, but as soon as I asked, he shut his mouth. Huh? What’s wrong? Besides, his expression was dark. It was not at an awkward level. It was above that. Did I do something wrong? I thought that he was better now. It had been a while since I saw his face that stiff.
