Reincarnated Princess Wishes To Avoid Death - Chapter 165
The Princess with a High-Powered Gaze Returns
The morning after announcing her candidacy, Mia entered the cafeteria for breakfast as usual. However, there was an unusual atmosphere that can be felt.
“Good morning, everyone” Mia called out to those who at the table. Her usual entourage looked awkwardly for a moment, and they just whispered a little, “Good morning.” Then they quickly got rid of their meals and left.
Oh, I remember the previous timeline. It was about the time before the start of the revolution when it felt like this.
There was a subtle atmosphere in the dining room that created an atmosphere where no one wanted to get involved with Mia. As expected, there is no open harassment. The authority of the empire has not fallen to the point of being harassed by tripping her foot, pouring water over her head, and so on. Furthermore, Mia was pretty sure that at the end of the day, her fellow Tearmoon nobles would probably put their votes in for her.
But they probably won’t publicly show their support.
Nobody in their right mind would want to openly oppose someone with such overwhelming influence across the continent. Not even Mia herself.
Not! Even! Mia! Herself!
Dark moons, why is this happening?
It wasn’t typical of Mia to give up easily. Her hopes of escaping this predicament were slowly disappearing.
What’s even worse is that the fact that she went to see Sion and Abel also contributed to unnecessary speculation. Some rumors are floating that she made a shady bargain with them to secure majority to defeat Rafina. Without her knowledge, Mia was becoming politically untouchable.
She quickly finished her breakfast and returned to her room to get ready to minimize the chances of her running into Rafina. By the way, Anne has been accompanying Bel to her classroom. The emptiness of her room made Mia yearn for her loyal maid’s company, but there was nothing she can do about it.
What I wanted is that I could find someone I could trust to go with Bel, and keep Anne with me…. But I don’t know anyone like that.
With a deep, deep sigh, Mia headed for the classroom. Even while walking in the corridor, Mia is slightly worried about the looks of the people she passed by. Normally, her entourage would have already flocked her by now. But today, no one approached.
The situation did not change when she entered the classroom. Mia was hoping to find Chloe whom she trusted will greet her normally. Unfortunately, Chloe hadn’t arrived at the classroom yet.
Oh right… Chloe always takes her time coming in in the morning.
Having left breakfast early to avoid Rafina, she arrived at the classroom early as well, and was now left in the awkward situation of having nothing to do.
Mia sits lonely and starts preparing for classes because she has nothing to do.
Well, I guess this is it. It can’t be helped. I would do the same. I wonder if I should go wait in Abel’s room until next classes start…
She entertained that thought for a moment but quickly stopped herself.
No, I shouldn’t do that. I should stay like this. What’s important right now is to avoid attracting attention.
When opposing Rafina, the more she made a show of it, the worse off she would end up. Even if she will win, it is better to do it quietly and without attracting too much attention. Ideally, her victory should only be met with mild interest. The goal was not, “Whoa, she won? No way!” but “Huh? She won? Okay.”
Most of the people here aren’t interested in the elections anyway. I will start by bringing in the nobles from Tearmoon and friendly kingdoms. Then Sion’s probably next. If I can get him to have a few private conversations with the Sunkland students, maybe I’ll actually have a chance at getting over half the votes.
If so, the important thing is to secure the votes of the Tearmoon nobles to solidify her base.
I’m sure that the families of the Four Dukes have some of their people enrolled here right now. I need them to promise me their support first…. Hmmm…. Given this, maybe it isn’t as hopeless as I thought it would be.
It was at that time that Mia was fantasizing about victory when…
There was a person who walked up to Mia! The glitter of the morning sun showcased her golden hair, and it is made into a dignified ponytail…. A girl who stares straight at Mia with her strong will shining in her eyes. that is,
“Oh, what happened to Ms. Tiona?”
Mia is astonished but manages to answer. She thought that Chloe was the only who will talk to her now. To the dismayed Mia, Tiona’s voice was full of resolve.
“I heard the story from Prince Sion and Prince Abel.”
“Well, uh …?”
“Mia-sama, I will support you at the student council election.”
Mia opens her mouth unintentionally. Regardless of such Mia, Tiona continues.
“Let me help you in the upcoming student council election.”
Mia jumped up in a hurry. She was just thinking of riding through this election inconspicuously. Nevertheless, it was too late. A quick glance around the classroom showed that everyone’s eyes were on them.
This is bad! We are standing out!
“Oh, do you know what you’re saying?” Mia tells Tiona while giving her the look that says: It’s scary to go against Rafina. So just give me your vote and don’t make a scene!
Mia, was after all, a princess with the high-powered gaze. She could speak through her eyes.
Looking back at Mia, Tiona nods.
Thankful moons. She understands.
Mia exhales relief in her heart. But Tiona started talking.
“Of course, I do. I’m going to help you, and that’s that!”
Gah! She didn’t understand a damn thing!
Mia’s screams echoed only in Mia’s heart.
