Reincarnated Princess Wishes To Avoid Death - Chapter 125
Princess Mia expresses her determination
In a particularly large and luxurious guest room of the mayor’s mansion, a small princess was indulging in an excessive sleep. Mia, who was hungry for a good night’s sleep, wrapped herself in a fluffy blanket and surrendered herself to the waiting embrace of the large comfortable bed. It was a bed wide enough that even Mia who kicks and rolls in her sleep, did not fall off.
The plan for the next day was to join up with Keithwood and the others. The thought of leaving such a comfortable nest did not really do anything to encourage her from waking up early. Sion, on the other hand, did not get much sleep because he was worried about being attacked while asleep. But such thoughts did not even enter Mia’s mind. After all, Mia does not really do a lot of thinking.
Ignorance is not just a bliss, but also a great sedative. So, Mia was sleeping soundly. While asleep, she mumbled something about mushroom stew while making slurping noises. She enjoyed herself in what seemed to be a tasteful dream until a noise from the corridor shattered her fantasy.
“Hmm … u? What is that? What’s that noise? So loud.”
She rubbed her eyes and got out of bed. She stood up, feeling the soft sensation of thick carpet under her bare feet. Her shoes were at the entrance of the room, so she headed to the corridor. Sion just happened to be passing by in the place.
“Oh, Sion. Just at the right time. What happened?”
“Oh, actually …, uh, Mia, you should change first.”
Mia tilted her head and blinked her eyes. When she looked down on her appearance, she nodded a little.
Currently, Mia is wearing a nightgown with plenty of wool, a nightcap that looks like a witch’s hat, and her leather shoes. It is bad enough to be caught out in a nightwear, it is even worse to look like a fashion disaster.
“Anne will give me an earful if she sees me like this. I do have to change.”
Mia returned to her room and quickly changed her clothes. Then, she headed to the mayor’s room with Sion.
“This is not possible. How can they dispatch the army so quickly?!”
As soon as they entered the room, they heard Lambert’s voice.
“But the fact is they have sent a messenger earlier to ask our surrender.”
Lambert’s face turned to them. It was paler than usual.
“Actually, there was a report from our comrades that the royal government army is already deployed along the highway, and it is led by the second prince, Abel Remno.”
“My! Prince Abel!”
Unexpectedly, Mia screamed with unbridled happiness that came from her heart.
That’s right, as most of you may have forgotten, Mia is still “an innocent girl in love” in some parts. The rest of her is made up of parts that are definitely not maiden-like. Such as starting creepily at the body of a handsome boy and being cheeky with a couple of young delinquents. Anyway, Mia’s inner maiden has awoken, and her heart is now pumping faster.
I’m glad I took a bath yesterday!
Mia was overjoyed, but such happiness was cut too short with Sion’s response.
“If the royal family led their own troops, the purpose would be for morale boost.”
Sion grimaced as he continued his observation. Sion muttered.
“The Diamond Legion is already in position, which means he is bring the king’s orders as week as reinforcements. Prince Abel, is this the path you chose?”
There was then a moment of silence. Then he spoke to Lambert.
“Tell me more about what the messenger said, and I also want to hear where the army is deployed.”
“No, but …”
“If you are looking for help from our country, don’t you think you should do what I say?”
Lambert had a pensive look, but immediately nodded and gave instructions to his subordinate to comply.
Then Sion looked towards Mia.
“Mia, do you want to go?”
“Eh …? Oh no, but …”
She hesitated for a moment. After all, the place we’re heading to is a dangerous zone that could become a battlefield. She couldn’t go to such a place …
“Well, I’ll go even if you don’t go… Well, it might be easier if you don’t come with me.”
“Hey? Why …?”
“Things have changed. And there’s a question I have for Abel that really needs an answer. Depending on his answer…”
Sion lightly touches the handle of the sword on his waist and his eyes for a moment displayed bloodlust.
“I’ll have to put into practice what you said to me that night. I can’t overlook the slaughter of the people.”
“Are you going to kill Prince Abel …?”
Mia felt her voice quiver.
“I hope I won’t have to…”
Upon hearing that… Mia decided to harden her heart. Tenderness turned into resolve, and she made up her mind. It was going to be the hardest decision she had ever made, and it took every ounce of determination she possessed.
Mia didn’t want Abel to die.
And Sion… She didn’t want him to die in such a way either. Though she had no idea what she could do, she could not bear the thought of being left behind while the two kill each other somewhere. At the very least, she wanted to be there.
In a very rare occurrence of such resolve, Mia took a deep breath, exhaled, and then put all her energy into her cowardly heart and declared!
“Prince Sion, I… I sha… cha! chall go with you!”
She bit her tongue. It’s a good example of not doing something that one is not used to.
Nevertheless, she fixed her steady gaze on Sion. Sion was impressed by seemingly Mia’s display of determination.
For her part at the moment, she was determined not to cry from the pain coming from biting her tongue.
