Reincarnated Princess Wishes To Avoid Death - Chapter 260
Each Person’s Loyalty (Fetish)
What was Sion’s team doing while Mia’s group was having their underground adventure? Let’s go back a bit and see what happened…
Sion and Nina looked all over the area near the spring for Esmeralda. When they couldn’t find her, they went back to the cave, but it was also empty. Anne was supposed to be keeping watch, but she wasn’t there. Mia and Abel also hadn’t come back.
“Scorching hot sun… Is it a new trend for Tearmoon women to run away to deserted islands?”
Sion’s jokey tone couldn’t hide how worried he was. After getting in touch with Keithwood, who came back soon after, he decided to look for Anne, whose location they knew the most about.
The two of them went further into the cave, but the cave-in blocked their way. They turned around and then went in the same direction that Mia’s team had gone.
Sion was speechless when they came across a hole in the ground where the rocks around it had fallen down into a black void.
Keithwood spoke in a calm, businesslike tone because he knew his master’s nerves were getting frayed.
“If they fell, it’s possible that their injuries would keep them from moving.”
“They could be, yes.”
Sion knew exactly what Keithwood meant by what he said. Even if their friends were still alive down there, it would be almost impossible to get them back up.
There was no way out.
No, don’t stop trying. Continue to think. There must be a solution.
Sion thought furiously. He didn’t want to give in to despair. He was upset that he didn’t get any ideas.
Instead, it took the form of Nina, who had been standing guard at the beach. She ran over and told him, “The Emerald Star has returned.”
“Really? Then, tell the crew that we need their help right away. We might be able to get out of this hole if they have rope. Still, there’s hope—”
When she told him there was no need, she stopped his racing thoughts in their tracks. He just stood there and stared.
“What? They’re all good, right? Are they already on board?”
He was still confused as they went toward the ship, saying things like “What in the name of the sun?” and “Damn it, Mia, what magic is this?” the whole way.
The person in charge of the row boat they got into told them with great excitement about Mia’s achievements.
“Trust me, it was something! She beat that huge thing until it gave up. Totally out of this world!”
After hearing the story, it’s easy to see why this feeling didn’t change.
What the hell are you talking about? Damn it, Mia, are you even a person?
In any case, Sion’s three friends were happy as they rode their boat back to the yacht.
When they found out that their friends, whose deaths had seemed almost certain, were not only saved but also completely unharmed, they felt a deep sense of relief that made them loosen up and start talking.
Keithwood joked, “Well, speaking of that, Miss Nina, you don’t have it easy, do you?”
Nina replied to the sudden comment by tilting her head and saying, “I’m not sure I understand what you mean.”
“I mean your mistress, Lady Esmeralda. It must be hard to deal with her.”
She made a short frown. Then her gaze drifted upward.
“That isn’t true. I like the work I do for her,” she said, but she didn’t seem happy.
“You do? Really? But, she doesn’t even address you by name—”
“That part is the best!”
When Keithwood heard the sudden exclamation, he jerked back a little and swallowed the rest of his sentence.
Nina got back on her feet and let out a small sigh after she gave her answer.
Then she used the tone of voice teachers use to tell a particularly rowdy child why they shouldn’t be acting that way.
“She isn’t needy. I like her because she is like this. We keep our distance as professionals. What I like most about our relationship is how dry and businesslike it is. I can’t get enough of how good it is.”
Keithwood and Sion both looked like they were trying to figure out a foreign language as they listened.
Nina kept going even though they were clearly confused. Nina seemed to have a lot to say now that she knew Esmeralda was safe and she wasn’t around.
She got more and more excited as she talked.
“And sometimes she forgets that she knows my name and almost calls me by it before she remembers. I love how she panics and stutters a bit as she puts on the act again. It’s also cute that she loves Her Highness and wants to spend time with her, but she can’t work up the courage to just ask. And seeing her come up with this elaborate plan to seduce the visiting princes by wearing a revealing swimsuit, only to back out at the last minute… It’s so funny how scared she gets…”
Keithwood thought Nina sounded like a want tobe artist who was insisting that a random rock she picked up on the side of the road was art.
I don’t understand this at all. She lives in a different world.
Nina patted Keithwood on the shoulder and said, “To think you can’t appreciate Milady’s beauty… I feel sorry for your taste in women, Keithwood. Also, isn’t it part of the fun of being a servant to have to work hard to keep up with your master’s whims?”
“Ah. Well, I have to respectfully disagree with your first point, but I can see where your second point is coming from.”
They both laughed like they knew what was going on. Even though they both worked for hard-to-please masters, it seemed like they got something out of it. It was part of the fun, so it was worth the trouble…
Sion, on the other hand, looked from one servant to the next, trying to figure out what was making them laugh.
After being pulled onto the deck of the Emerald Star; Mia and her friends Abel, Esmeralda, and Anne celebrated being saved.
The yacht had sailed away to find shelter, but it was damaged by the storm and started to drift away. The captain was very sorry that the repairs had taken so long, but since they were necessary, no one was punished. Not long after that, Sion, Keithwood, and Nina came back with the group sent to the island to look for them.
Sion turned to Mia as soon as he got on the boat and made sure everyone was okay. “Mia, you have to stop trying to give me a heart attack,” he said. “Esmeralda was found safe and sound, which is good, but…really, what happened?”
“It’s a long story, but what we found underground will blow your mind. It sure did mine.”
Sion smiled in a testing way.
“It’s crazy enough that we got everyone back on the boat without anyone getting hurt. How can this day get any crazier? Oh, I heard that you punched some huge fish away? Is it even stranger than that?”
Nina gave the two people who were talking a single glance from the side before walking over to Esmeralda. She breathed a sigh of relief when she saw that her mistress was in good shape.
“I’m glad you’re healthy, Milady,” she said in her usual flat voice.
“Hm? Ah, yes… Even though I twisted my ankle a bit…”
“I see. I feel bad that I let you get hurt while I was watching. Please accept my sincerest apologies for the trouble this has caused you.”
“No, you’re not to blame… I did it… I went away by myself…”
Esmeralda spoke in a slow, stuttering way.
She looked around with a pleading look, and her eyes landed on Mia’s maid, Anne, who smiled and gave her a subtle thumbs up. Esmeralda was encouraged by her fellow caver, so she nodded and used the courage she had borrowed.
“I know you must have been worried, um, Nina…”
She worked hard to say the name of her maid, but all she got in return was a strange look.
“Uh, lady, what’s wrong with you?” Nina asked, “Why are you using my name out of the blue?” She was much more confused than when she first heard about the ankle injury.
Esmeralda’s answer showed that she was truly sorry.
“I’ve thought about how I act. All this time, I’ve been very rude to you. You probably never thought I knew your name, but I do. Even though I’ve always known it, I’m sorry for how I’ve treated you.”
Nina didn’t seem to care much about her sincere apology:
“Um, are you kidding?”
In fact, she seemed very sad about it.
“Uh, milady… You don’t have to do that at all. Just…be who you are. Like you’ve always done, okay? You can call me “you,” “that maid over there,” or anything else you want.”
“What on the stars do you mean? Nina, is it okay for me to call you by your name?”
“It’s about…appearance. It’s important to look good. Think about the proud traditions of the House of Greenmoon. Or the rules of the upper class. By any of these standards, calling maids by name is wrong,” she said in a flat rejection of Esmeralda’s growing change.
“Whatever it is you’re trying to do, just don’t do it. Really. It’s alright.”
Faced with this unexpected turn of events, Esmeralda turned her attention back to Anne. This time, the other young woman didn’t do it. Instead, she looked out to sea.
Anne learned something new that day. There are many different kinds of loyalty, and each person has their own tastes and preferences (kinks and fetishes).
“Okay, I think I’ve seen enough of this island. Let’s go home!”
There was no point in staying any longer.
Mia told the Emerald Star to sail back to Ganudos, and it did.
Well, it’s abrupt, but with the next episode, the story of the Taermoon Empire, Part 2 will come to an end.
After a day of extra episodes, the next week is summer vacation. I would like to start the third part from the following Monday, the 19th. ……I hope I can start. . .
So, it was a light future plan.
With this we are finishing this current arc. Following will be an epilogue and then a new arc will begin. Thank you for continuing to support me.
