What the hell happened? It became noisier and noisier outside, and Alex was only looking at the music room’s door.
I had an ominous premonition that something bad was going to happen.
“Open the door!”
The door of the music room opened with a bang, scared after hearing the thundering voice outside. There was no courtesy at all, without knocking even once, countless servants continued to come in when the door opened.
Seeing that they were all well-dressed, I thought it was not normal, but soon after, a colorful lady appeared.
Who was it? Who was it? A woman with strawberry blonde hair and a slightly grim impression.
“Her Majesty, do you have any business without prior notice?”
You damn memory! It was Empress Lotte, Alex’s enemy and his political opponent, who would bother me very much in the future.
“How dare you speak to me? You’re talking with that uncivilized mouth. You lowly thing.”
Strawberry blonde’s beauty, which seemed treacherous and arrogant, had tremendous charisma, as expected of the Emperor’s sister.
Why are you so angry? Oh, I had a guess. If that’s the case, it’s not unreasonable to get angry like that. It must be unfair that the Prime Minister’s place for the Marquis of Romford, who worked hard, has disappeared.
The eyes staring at Alex seemed to be ready to eat him, so I was nervous just from watching.
But Alex didn’t even blink once.
When the lady beckoned, the servants backed away. Suddenly, we became alone without a single observer. I wondered why, so I grabbed the curtain and watched the situation.
“How dare you.”
The lady raised her hand to the utmost and slapped Alex on the cheek over and over again.
Alex’s head turned with the sound of a clap. The diamond of the ring on her hand shone exceptionally, and the decoration scratched Alex’s face.
Before he knew it, blood was flowing from his cheek, but Alex didn’t moan once even after being hit like that.
“It’s like you don’t know the subject as a prostitute’s son, and you’re aiming to be the Crown Prince.”
Now you’re cursing at his mom. No matter how much you hate Alex, how can you use such a curse on the Prince’s mother?
Against the child who did not rebel, the woman began to trample on Alex’s pride with all her might.
The moment I tried to step up, Alex moved first.
“We have guests today. If you’re angry, I’ll take it as much as you want next time, so let’s stop here today.”
When Alex answered back, she shook her fist and even screamed.
“Angry? Are you going to lecture me now?”
You poured oil over the fire. Foolish Alex, I know you said it out of awareness of me, but that remark, which did not consider the listener at all, rather angered her.
Alex’s body collapsed on the floor because he couldn’t stand the Princess’s blow. The woman began to use her hands and feet.
“You better die, you better die!”
QC/N: this bish ୧༼ ಠ益ಠ ༽୨
The situation has become serious. Alex asked me not to come forward, and I barely held it in because I was afraid that I would make things more difficult if I went out for nothing.
Even though it was this situation, there was no one outside looking into it. I could see why Alex would clench his teeth whenever he thought of Princess Lotte.
You can’t be on the same side as that person even if you wake up from death. If I leave it like this, I think Alex will get hurt badly. But even while being beaten like that, Alex was looking at me with a look saying, “Don’t come out.”
Leaving it like this, it’s not my life but Alex’s that’s in danger.
I’m sorry. I just can’t get over it. I broke my promise with Alex and ran out of the curtain.
As I abruptly popped out from behind the curtain, the woman looked perplexed. Oh, you should be surprised. My appearance is nothing short of a walking billboard.
Glittering blond hair, emerald eyes that resemble my father.
One more thing, she has known my mother since childhood, so she can’t help but recognize me.
“I see Your Highness, Lady Ciel Valentine greets you.”
My mother, Eveness Rose Haddington, was originally the daughter of a simple count. Although she came from such a family, she had such outstanding beauty, that’s why the Princess carried her like a pretty accessory since she was young.
Meanwhile, when the current Emperor, who was the Crown Prince at that time, showed interest in my mother, she suddenly changed her attitude and began to ostracize her.
You’re from a poor family, and you’re looking at the throne with greed all over your face!
Her followers, both men, and women, began to exclude my mother.
While being bullied so ridiculously, she met my father like it was fate.
The two fell in love at first sight. And from the waves of passion, brother Theo was born.
She not only became the Duchess of Valentine, but she also gave birth to a successor; Princess Lotte could no longer ignore my mother.
So far, she has been getting along moderately well with my mother, only pretending to be superficially close to her.
Maybe until today.
I willingly blocked Alex from falling to the floor. It was only for a moment that she was startled, but Empress Lotte soon recognized me and scolded me severely.
“Get out of my way. The problems of the Imperial Palace are no place for a young lady to meddle.”
“But, Your Highness.”
“How dare you! Did your mother teach you no manners for you to act so disrespectfully in front of the Empress?”
This woman, she’s really pissing me off. I felt my blood boiling when she cursed at my mom like that.
Now it’s really a tough situation. Ignoring what the Empress said, I didn’t back down a step in front of Alex and stood up firmly.
“Violence is bad. Dad said it’s a bad thing to hit people.”
“Get out of the way!”
“No, I won’t. I won’t move.”
Things got bigger when I stepped up. Alex got up, pulled my arm, and hid me behind him.
“I was giving Lady Ciel a tour of the Palace. Let’s just send her back to her father and then we’ll talk.”
“How dare you order me now!”
Her hand flew in the air again. I didn’t want to see Alex hit, so I shook off Alex’s arm and jumped in front of the woman.
The Princess’s hand twisted and slapped me on the cheek this time. How hard did you want to hit me for my small body to fly away and fall to the floor?
Ugh, it hurts. Surprised, Alex ran to me. The Princess panicked after hitting me, not knowing what to do.
“This, this is!”
Oh, my. It hurts like hell. Do you really think you can screw with me?
“Ciel, are you okay?”
“Yes, you’re bad. This is what happened because you ran in front of me.”
Are you calling that an excuse? Anyway, the people who can’t admit that they’ve done something wrong, both men and women, are terrible.
Now that this is the case, we must summon Superman. I shouted as hard as I could, pinching my thighs.
PR/N: lmao I love how she calls her dad superman and starts screaming xD
QC/N: Same lmao so cute
When I burst into tears with a tremendous cry, the two watching me were embarrassed.
This was not a tear from sadness like before, but a cry full of anger and resentment.
The loud cries of a child caused a commotion outside in the hall. And less than a minute later, the door to the music room suddenly opened.
I knew this would happen. My father is a great wizard. I don’t usually have to show it, but I remember it clearly.
Using common sense, there’s no way a person of that level wouldn’t have put a safety device on the body of his beloved only daughter.
If I get slapped on the cheek and fall down and cry, I’m sure my father will solve it somehow. Honestly, if this is not the time to do this, when should I? Believing in my omnipotent father, I decided to act out as much as I could.
“Our Ciel, you’re surprised. Dad’s here. You’re fine now.”
TL/N: superman is here 😂
I didn’t intend to cry, but I was really angry and sad, so I cried. You can’t hit Alex, and you can’t ignore me no matter what I say.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been ignored, so I’m even angrier. I remembered the old memories of being ignored as an orphan, so I began to cry like crazy.
The atmosphere became chilly not only in the room but also outside the room as if I was causing a scene. No matter how sweet and soothing my father was, I didn’t stop crying easily.
Meanwhile, Clara ran to me too.
The sorrowful tears only came to an end after seeing Clara. It doesn’t help much if I just cry, and it’s enough to cry at this point.
As soon as I saw my sister, I stopped crying. I’ve never seen anything like this before. But I couldn’t finish it like this, so I was hugging my sister and sniffling hard.
I don’t usually cry, but my cheeks are swollen and I’m crying a lot. Dad didn’t miss the sight and began to question the Princess.
“Your Majesty, what the hell is going on here?”
It was clear that she was at fault, but she lied without salivating her lips.
“The children were arguing, so I came to stop him, and he was very angry with the lady.”
She’s a genius at acting. It seems real just by looking at her face, but who is my dad?
Dad looked at my cheek one more time and looked at Alex’s cheek, who had his head bowed down.
“Your Highness, how is your cheek so swollen? Is that my daughter’s doing?”
Alex’s cheeks are as swollen as mine. There were only three people in the room, so as result, it had to be either me or the Princess, but my hands are not that big or I can’t hit him that hard in the first place. As my father narrowed the investigation, the Empress became increasingly cornered.
“Our Ciel couldn’t have done such a thing!”
At the very most important timing, a tactless older sister stepped in. Thank you so much for trusting me sister, but not now.
 Making things worse
 What was used here is like saying that she’s gonna cause as much trouble as she wants
 It means that she didn’t care. Like “lying without batting an eye”
