Daughter of the Emperor
Chapter 370: The Emperor’s Daughter Chapter. 370
Anyway, I’d give him credit for trying to change the subject. However, I would not fall for that.
I took a big breath.
“Ferdel said that it’s more suspicious for an empire as large as our to not have any corrupt officers.”
“But I can’t ignore a bug in front of me.”
What was my father bragging about anyway?
Of course, I agreed that a corrupt governor should be renounced, but I didn’t agree with this method. I loved that daddy would not go to war anymore, but that didn’t mean I wanted him to go on a rampage because he didn’t like something on the report! As I glared as if I would kill him, my dad finally said something to me as if he was sorry.
“I didn’t kill anyone.”
“Not killing someone was good enough for you?! That’s total nonsense!”
I would listen to him only if he talked using rational human logic. What kind of nonsense puppy logic was that? When I laughed shortly because I was unpleasantly surprised, Caitel nodded proudly.
“I didn’t cut off any arms or legs either. I think that’s plenty kind enough.”
How was that considered kind?!
I was reminded of how extraordinary my dad was several times a day… Really, he behaved like he’s from another world sometimes.
I was the one who hailed from another world here!
Back then, I used to worry that everyone in this world might act like my dad. Luckily, he’s the only one as extraordinary as this.
Wait, was that a good thing? Should I be happy?
Oh, I didn’t know. Whatever! I had given up on finding a rational conclusion.
“Fine, let’s have dinner.”
“You said it was lunchtime.”
… Was he asking for a fight?
Caitel smiled as I frowned. I didn’t know what was so funny, but seeing him smile made me feel anew.
Ah, fine. It is what it is.
I raised my head coldly.
“So, do you not want to eat then?”
“We should eat.”
When I reached out to him upon hearing his answer, which seemed so natural, Caitel’s hands overlapped over mine.
I breathed a deep sigh as if I couldn’t help it.
What could I do? The rest of this mess still needed to be dealt with…
Before I left the office, I looked around at the attendants who were chasing after Caitel.
“Let the chancellor handle the rest.”
“Yes, Your Highness.”
