Reincarnated Princess Wishes To Avoid Death - Chapter 145
The Elegant Spring Break of the Wisdom of the Empire
The Great Wisdom of the Empire, Mia Luna Tearmoon, spent her spring vacation at Saint Noel Academy in the most elegant fashion. Gracefully, really gracefully sprawled out on her large bed in her room at the women’s dormitory.
Gracefully, she would roll from one side of the bed to the other side up to the very edge. Then she would then gracefully roll to the other side again. For an added elegant variety, she would occasionally roll lengthwise, and even sometimes hug a pillow and gracefully roll with it. Of course, all of these are done with grace and elegance befitting of her.
“Ah, I’m so bored.”
She whined as she idled her time away elegantly. Elegantly, was of course, a euphemism for like a lazy degenerate.
Originally, it wasn’t supposed to be like this. Until the school restarted, she was planning to play leisurely in the empire. Nevertheless, there were some circumstances that confined her to be in St. Noel.
After successfully departing from Remno Kingdom, Mia did not stop by home, but instead went straight back to St. Noel. There she remained until the winter holidays. This proved to be a very bad idea.
The daughter-con emperor was in tears upon welcoming Mia’s return.
“Oh, Mia, Mia! My beloved daughter! What on earth were you doing without returning to the empire!?”
The emperor embraced Mia tightly and then ordered a cruel punishment. It was a punishment that would not only embarrass Mia but also smash her pride. That is…
“Call me Dad until the next winter. I won’t allow you to call me anything else.”
It was a really cruel and unusual…
“You can’t! Th-that’s… But Father!”
“Dad. Dad. I won’t respond to anything else!”
The light from Mia’s eyes faded as she watched her beloved Father turn his face away, pouting, with a hmph. For awhile, she stood there like a ceramic doll devoid of life. Eventually, the full implication of the situation dawned on her.
Ugh, I feel a headache coming on.
Things only got worse once she started calling him “Dad.” The emperor was overjoyed that she was finally calling her “Dad” that he started visiting Mia more frequently.
This… Argh! This is becoming annoying!
You see, Mia is at that delicate age where she did not get along well with her parents.
By the way, Ludwig, Dion, Tiona and Anne got off scot-free from the incident in Remno. Rather, they were even praised by His Majesty the Emperor for guarding the runaway Mia.
That was how she framed their achievements. If not, the four people could have been executed. Still, she was a little bit annoyed that she was the only one to get a punishment.
That’s why Mia, after experiencing a terrible winter vacation, chose not to return to the empire during the spring vacation. She stayed at St. Noel. Which was great… at least for the first two days. And then boredom started sinking in.
“Ahhh, boring… nothing to do here… Chloe is not here. Neither is Abel… ”
She currently has no friends to play with. Well, Rafina was around. But she wasn’t really the kind of friend that Mia was wanting at the moment. Sure, Mia goes to see her if she gets an invite from Rafina. But otherwise…
As a result, Mia’s range of activities were limited to strolling with Anne around the island, eating sweets, sleeping lazily, and sometimes going out for horse-riding.
In short, she was living a very indulgent lazy lifestyle.
Anne entered the room to witness her lazy, loafing, apathetic mistress lying on top of the bed. There was, however, no disgust or disappointment in the way she looked at Mia.
Rather, Anne looked at her with a gentle gaze. Like the way she would look at a cute younger sister.
Recently, Anne has noticed something. Mia doesn’t really like studying. A few days ago, when Anne helped Mia study for the end of the year exams, she noticed that Mia was having a lot of trouble. Yet, Mia toiled hard cramming and scribbling through notes even with tears on her eyes. Her efforts were rewarded. She ranked in the top 20 of her grade. It’s a feat!
By the way, Mia’s grade only has about 80 students. Well, it’s still a feat. Being in the top quarter is unthinkable in the previous timeline!
The cause of the last minute studying was, of course, procrastination. After neglecting to study properly through the term time, she crammed her heart out. And now she is totally spent. Mia’s appearance of lethargy reminded Anne of her younger siblings, and she couldn’t help but smile a little.
Mia is not good at studying…
And just because she knew it, Anne’s respect did not waver. No, rather…
She’s younger than my other siblins… but her shoulders carry such heavy responsibilities.
…her reverence for Mia only deepened with this thought. There was something admirable knowing that her beloved mistress’ wisdom was not a result of innate natural gift but rather thought the result of honest hard work.
That’s why… I have to support her as much as I can.
This was going to be Anne’s secret new school year resolution.
When she can relax, I must help her relax as much. When she needs to be proper, I need to get tough on her. She is the kind of person who will understand as long as I explain it properly. So I need to think about what things I can do to lighten her load.
Anne has completely taken on the role of Mia’s manager. That’s why Anne wanted to have her mistress relax at least during the break until school started again. But today there was a situation where she couldn’t allow it.
She walked towards Mia’s bed. Mia acknowledged her by lifting one of her eyelids.
“Oh, Anne, right timing. Would you mind sitting there and singing me a lullaby…”
“Unfortunately, please refrain from taking a nap today. Rafina-sama has invited you for an afternoon tea.”
“Oh? Rafina-sama? But just yesterday I was there for a tea party …”
“It seems that His Highness Abel will arrive here today. And so Rafina hopes you can join them.”
Immediately, Mia burst into a smile.
“I thought he wouldn’t be back until later. Oh! Could it be that he heard that I was staying at the academy and so came back early to see me?”
Mia got up from the bed and said in a commanding voice…
“Anne, choose a dress for me. I need to hurry!”
She said it in a dignified way, befitting to be called the Wisdom of the Empire. Mia has transformed back into the glorious princess Anne knew…
…well, from the neck up, anyway… from the neck down, this dignified princess was still wearing a crumpled, wrinkled nightwear… which seems to have endured abuse.
That was the beginning of Part 2. I hope you enjoy the journey of Princess Mia.
Next week will be a holiday, and next time I will aim to post from the 21st.
