The real culprit in the last drug case was never caught. Nevertheless, the Emperor greatly praised Alex for his efforts in finding and blocking the distribution of drugs in advance.
“They managed to get away.”
“The Queen cut the tail early. Unfortunately, I think this case should end at this point.”
Alex seemed to be very disappointed. He seemed to have wanted to scold the Imperial family for this incident, but things got messed up because I was kidnapped and Clara was also entangled.
Thanks to that, we weren’t able to make a big difference on our side either.
Through this incident, even the Emperor’s sister, the Queen, tried to distribute drugs. We found out the truth.
“His Majesty also told us to keep watching, so we’ll have to wait a little longer.”
“Yeah, because an opportunity will come again.”
If I were to enter the Imperial Palace, I’m sure they would plot something bad. Since we were already on the same boat, I decided to move towards the goal of ‘Down with the Queen.’
“By the way, what should I do? My sister is out again today.”
“There’s nothing we can do. I’m fine.”
How many times has this been already? Alex came to meet her without an appointment today and it was a mistake.
If this was the case, it would have been better to come with an appointment, but my older sister didn’t seem to care too much that she stood up to the crown prince.
I was caught between the two of them, and I was busy dealing with Alex today as well.
“Well. Anyway, Ciel. Are you busy today?”
“I decided to go to brother Isaac’s knights. A regular martial arts match is being held.”
It was because Isaac didn’t usually call us out, but the family often went to cheer him on. But Alex made a face that showed he didn’t like it.
“I think it’s time for me to leave too. What about you?”
“If it’s the Blue Dragon Knights, I have business there, so go with me.”
“Your Majesty too?”
“Okay. I have something to do too.”
He said that he had a promise like that, so I suddenly went with Alex.
Today was a day for brother Isaac, so I brought a basket of sweets with the maids. Aside from the cookies I would give to the knights, I brought the ones I made for Isaac.
“What kind of cookie is this?”
“It’s a consolation product. I baked it myself to give to my brother Isaac.”
Yesterday, I worked hard to bake with my sister, but unlike my older sister who was full of dexterity, what I made was so messy that it could not be compared just by looking at the appearance.
“You said you baked it yourself?”
“The taste is not guaranteed. Even so, my brother Isaac will enjoy eating it.”
Even salt-flavored cookies were eaten as if they were the most delicious in the world. At my triumphant words, Alex secretly pointed to the basket of cookies.
“You bake your own cookies. You are very talented.”
“My sister has a lot of talents. Mine honestly doesn’t taste good.”
It’s just worth seeing it as aegyo. Strangely, even with the same materials, what I made was exceptionally hard and crumbly. Without knowing it, Alex wanted my cookies.
“Your Majesty, you can go see to your business now.”
“I’ll take you to the place where you can meet Lord Isaac just in case.”
Since the last incident, overprotection has increased significantly. I gently rolled my eyes and sneered at him.
“Your Majesty treats me as if you were my older brother.”
“That’s not the case?”
If he didn’t change his expression and make a serious face, I had nothing to say. No, there’s no law against it, but if he said it out loud like that, I would be embarrassed.
“I think you treat me like a little sister.”
“It wouldn’t be bad either. Because you are the woman closest to me in this country.”
Seeing him casually utter misleading and resentful remarks, this guy seemed to be born with a playful temperament.
I didn’t think I had the skills to win. Failing to get rid of him, I had no choice but to keep the Crown Prince while I asked people and found where my brother Isaac was.
When I appeared, Isaac ran with a bright smile as if an abandoned puppy ran to see its owner.
Then he recognized the prince standing behind me and frowned again.
I knew this was gonna happen. I was going to say something, but Alex couldn’t stand it and grabbed the prettiest baked cookie from the basket and asked,
“You said you baked it yourself, didn’t you?”
“Your highness, how can you eat already”?
In front of Alex, who was somehow triumphant, Isaac was looking at me with a sad expression.
I couldn’t. This might make Isaac cry. He was like the Crown Prince of nuisance, it didn’t matter even if he was the male lead, today was an exception.
I was struggling with how to get rid of this man.
I couldn’t just increase his anger so I went to soothe Isaac who was disappointed. While walking to the Martial Arts president, I smiled as brightly as possible and removed a piece of cookie from Isaac’s mouth.
“My brother too. How can you always eat it while it’s buried like this?”
“Our Ciel will clean it. This one is also really delicious. Your brother is very happy.”
If you’re happy, I’m happy too. In the sense of asking the disturber to step away, I didn’t even look at Alex at all, and stayed close to Isaac.
My brother also secretly gave the crown prince a hint that the time spent alone with me was very precious.
“Your Majesty. Princess Wilhelm will be organizing documents in the east building, so please get going.”
“Well. It’s not that urgent.”
“Oh, it’s Isaac’s little sister!”
With a loud cry, a sand breeze came from far away. The two men standing next to me were reflexively prepared for defense.
“What is that?”
The sight of oversized men gathering was not revolting, but it was scary. Alex, who was not scared at all, naturally grabbed my hand with his left hand when I shrank.
“Don’t worry, I’ll protect you.”
“I will take care of my sister.”
This time Isaac hugged me tightly and hid me behind me. No, if I had to ask, I would be the strongest among them.
If I were determined and used magic, all humans in this area would disappear as a handful of dust, but it was very cute to see them fighting to protect me.
“Aw, so cute!”
“You really look a lot like Isaac. Lovely!”
“Little girl. Do you want to go eat delicious ice cream with this brother?”
Muscular men with runny noses tried to seduce me with inconsistent nasal sounds.
The moment a rough outstretched hand was about to grab my wrist, Isaac threw his colleague as hard as he could.
“Don’t you dare put your dirty hands on my sibling!”
Looking at it like this, he was really strong. A teammate who seemed to be twice his size was blown into the sky, and Isaac began to beat his teammates with his sword.
“Ciel. Excuse me for a moment.”
“Yes? Come on, wait a minute!”
When Isaac was outnumbered for a moment, Alex’s right hand hugged my waist. His left hand came under my knee and unconsciously, I was hugged like a princess.
In an instant, my body was lifted up and my gaze was raised. As Alex began to run, Isaac, who was left alone, had to stop his teammates alone.
Isaac’s brother’s cry was getting farther away. I was scared to ask something about where I was going while Alex was hugging me.
After Alex settled me and hugged me, I was sitting on a solid forearm. I felt like I was going to fall for no reason, so I urgently put my hand on his shoulder. Our eyes met.
“Don’t try to exclude me on purpose, because I’m about to get angry.”
Maybe it was because of his mood that the corners of Alex’s grumpy eyes looked droopier than usual. Even if he pretended for it to be a joke, he actually had a sad look, so I was speechless for no reason.
Even Alex, who was incredibly strong on the outside, was actually a lonely person. The only person who could understand him was Clara, but when my older sister became happy, Alex naturally became a loner.
Perhaps because I was caught off guard, I felt a little guilty. I couldn’t leave him alone since he was lonely because of me.
“I wasn’t trying to exclude you.”
“You said it before. How much I liked Your Majesty.”
Through Stan’s work, we became quite good friends. If he felt the trust I showed him, he would feel a little relieved.
At first, I thought he was just a strong person, but Alex also took a lot of work if you looked closely. In this regard, somehow I could see something similar to brother Lewis.
Lewis, who used to be so proud of himself, was so nervous during the level test that he couldn’t show off his usual skills.
I encouraged my brother, who was depressed at the time, to say he was the best. That way was the best this time too.
The so-called ‘There, there’ strategy. I reached out and patted Alex’s navy blue hair with my hands.
Alex showed a curious look at my unexpected behavior.
“Where the hell did you go?”
Brother Isaac knocked down his teammates and followed us later. I shouldn’t be misunderstood, so I purposely spoke loudly so that Isaac’s ears could hear me.
“When my youngest brother is depressed, this makes him feel better.”
I couldn’t say “oh-goo-goo,” so I turned around, but Alex seemed to be at a loss as if this situation was awkward.
I understood how that felt. The emperor was not one who could do such a friendly thing to his son. It didn’t mean that there was a favorable bloodline, Princess Lotte and Stan must have been lonely as well.
That’s why I was going to take care of him today. It was only after such a long patting that Alex carefully put me on the floor.
“I want to receive the cookies you make. Next time, bake it for me.”
It was not so hard to bake cookies, and when I readily sent him an okay sign, Alex returned me to my brother’s side with a proud face.
Alex seemed to feel better as a result. Good things were good. I joked around and poked Alex in the arm.
“What makes you so happy?”
