Reincarnated Princess Wishes To Avoid Death - Chapter 168
Tea Party of the Children of the Four Dukes of the Empire
“Fufufufu. It’s here. It’s here! Finally, my chance is here!”
The tea party was secretly held in a corner of St. Noel Academy. A large desk placed was in the middle of a large room. On top of that is an overflowing tea confectionery. Compared to the large amount of food, the number of people gathering on the spot are few. There were only two people.
If anyone knew who they were, they would surely receive a greeting. In particular, any nobleman of the Tearmoon Empire would never ignore them. Because they are the ones who unite the central nobles of the great Tearmoon Empire. They are of the lineage of the Four Dukes of the Empire.
“Oh? Is Ruby not coming today? She’s selfish when this is the perfect time for us to deepen our friendship of our Four Dukes. Also, that little girl, Citrina… skipping our party, the nerve.”
Esmeralda Etoile Greenmoon, the eldest daughter of Greenmoon, has rich green hair that gently draws waves. It fluttered. She sighed and sipped a cup of tea gracefully.
“Hey, hey! What are you relaxing about Esmeralda? Were you listening to me?”
It was a blue-haired boy was scowling at Esmeralda. His trimmed hair seemed to be trimmed over time and did not appear to crumble even when moved violently. He was around the middle of his teens. He is about the same age as Esmeralda.
Esmeralda looked the boy with disdain from the bottom of her heart.
“Hey, Sapphias, can you make your voice any louder? Just in case I didn’t hear you because after all we are indoors. Hmph.”
The boy, the eldest son of the Bluemoon, Sapphias Etoile Bluemoon shook his head with a sigh.
“Yeah, you, hey, hey, hey, don’t you know? This chance. There’s a lot of honor you might have in St. Noel’s student council! Because of the stupid unwritten rules, we, Imperial nobles can’t join the student council of St. Noel, but if Princess Mia becomes the student president, she must ignore such unwritten rules and appoint us as officers. See the difference?!”
Sapphias sighed a little after saying in such an excited tone.
“Even so, to pick a fight with Rafina by running in the election… Her Highness seems to be a little inadequate up in the head.”
Esmeralda puts a tsukkomi in the straight word with a smooth face.
“Such insolence, Sapphias. No matter how much you are a member of the Grand Duke, you should still refrain from speaking ill of the Princess.”
“Is that so? Didn’t you slander, saying that His Highness was too familiar with the common people?”
“That was a legitimate criticism, you’re slandering her with a false accusation. There’s a difference between the two. She skipped my tea party to go to her maid’s parents’ house, who are commoners. It’s natural that I should urge her to behave in a fashion befitting her station.”
Sapphias shook his head to Esmeralda, who was sipping tea with a smirk in her face.
“Well, I don’t know what you’re saying, but listen to me a little. Her Highness Princess Mia will definitely lose.”
“Oh? And I’m the one disrespectful when you are the one suggesting that Her Highness will lose to the daughter of a Duke of a small country?”
“I think you’re very disrespectful when you call Belluga a small country.”
Shaking his head in dismay, Sapphias continued…
“As you can see, Esmeralda, the Princess seems incompetent. She made that huge commotion in her classroom. She should be keeping a low profile and making deals behind the scenes. Open opposition does her no favors. Her best was to win is to evade spotlight until the final moment. But she’s bungling her approach.”
Sapphias reveals his thoughts with a sigh. Strangely, his thoughts miraculously matched Mia’s thoughts! Probably birds of the same feather.
“Well, it can’t be helped. I’ll teach Her Highness directly. In return, once she is seated as the president, I can recommend myself as a vice-president for my advice.”
Then Sapphias turned to Esmeralda and spoke.
“By the way, what are you going to do Esmeralda? I’d like to know what are the intentions of the Greenmoons…”
Esmeralda made an exaggerated show of bafflement, frowning as she titled her head…
“I’m not interested in the student council. Well, if Princess Mia invites me, I suppose I can’t help it.”
Then she giggled.
“My father, too, is very obsessed about his position. I’ll never understand why men are always so obsesses with positions and titles.”
Then she cut the cake in front of her into slices.
“Well, do your best. I won’t help you, but I won’t disturb you.”
“Very well. In that case, I shall.”
In this way, the two pretending-to-be-plotters laugh with fake smiles.
…By the way, it may not be necessary to mention, but just to be clear, the Four Dukes were relatives of the imperial family. That is, they shared the same blood as Mia.
Make of that what you will.
Mia’s middle name is Luna (moon), while the middle name of the Four Dukes is Etoile (star).
The Four Dukes are loosely based on the four precious stones
Sapphias Etoile Bluemoon = Sapphire = Blue
Esmeralda Etoile Greenmoon = Emerald = Green
Ruby Etoile Redmoon(?) = Ruby = Red (Her fullname hasn’t been mentioned yet)
Cetrine Etoile Yellowmoon(?) = Citrine = Yellow (She also really hasn’t appeared as well)
The four precious stones are diamond, sapphire, ruby, and emerald. And we all know that Mia has a diamond hair. Where Cetrine comes in, I don’t know.
