Reincarnated Princess Wishes To Avoid Death - Chapter 36
T/L: Pawprint Translations
The legendary night when Mia Luna Tearmoon shone in front of all the students.
The beginning was a little turbulent.
She was the center of everyone’s attention, but her dance was mediocre.
[… What is this? She stands out, but her dance doesn’t amount to much.]
[… Well, even if she is the princess of a powerfull country, she is still a child.]
In some parts of the venue, whisperings of jealousy and ridicule could be heard.
After all, they went through the trouble of preparing and dressing up, but all they were doing now was making Mia look better. The new students who were in the same grade as Mia didn’t like such conversations, but the upperclassmen were enjoying it.
They can’t say things like that to her face, but they might want to talk about it behind her back or imply it sarcastically.
Mia herself though, wasn’t really concerned.
[Very good, Prince Abel. You are very skilled at dancing.]
Mia leads Abel carefully and gently. Not only that, but she does it in an unnoticeable manner. At first glance, it looks like Abel is the one leading.
By doing so, her partner can have a good time and dance comfortably.
It was a splendid showing. A skillful woman sure is different.
Amidst the situation.
The only person who noticed was Abel.
(Could it be that Princess Mia is trying to match my level?)
At the same time, he was also aware of the other students reactions.
The harsh eyes of the audience on Mia. The stares of those who scoffed at “the star of the show” who became a laughing stock.
Abel knew he was the cause and felt both bad and sorry.
(She said she believed in me, and now she is being embarassed because of my lack of skill.)
That said, Mia had a completely unconcerned look on her face, while dancing.
She probably doesn’t want me to get concerned. Is what Abel thought.
That was when Abel’s eyes suddenly caught a glimpse of the only person who could match Mia…
Sion Saul Sunkland.
He was surrounded by girls, talking and laughing.
When the song was over, Abel took Mia and headed towards Sion.
[Prince Abel? Where are you going?]
Without answering the question, he went straight to Sion.
[Prince Sion, may I ask for a favor?]
Sion looked surprised at the sudden question.
[I’m a little tired and I need to rest for a bit. Could I ask you to accompany Princess Mia in the meantime?]
Mia says, astonished. But Abel doesn’t flinch and keeps looking straight at Sion.
Sion was silent for a moment.
[I understand. Ideed, I was hoping I could accompany Princess Mia to a dance. This is a good opportunity.]
Mia glanced at Abel.
[I will get a drink. I’m a little tired.]
This time, it was Mia who stayed silent for a little moment.
[…Is that so? Just one song then.]
She said, showing a bright smile at Sion.
For a moment, Abel felt a pain in his chest.
The sweet smile that was directed at him earlier, was now directed at someone else.
It was a mixture of frustration, sadness, jealousy and various other emotions. He felt the urge to scream.
(Because I’m not good enough….)
For the first time since he met Sion, Abel thought….
I don’t want to lose.
In the past, He thought no matter how hard he tried, he wouldn’t be able to win.
(I don’t want to lose, I refuse to give up.)
A passion he never had since birth was now burning through his body.
[Next time…. I definetely won’t lose.]
Biting his lip, Abel turned around.
By the way, that is what Mia was thinking when she showed a bright smile to Sion.
(It’s a great opportunity. I’m going to make you fall down splendidly. I can’t wait to see you embarrass yourself in front of everyone!)
(To be honest, I didn’t want to dance with Sion, but if I have to, then I’ll make the most out of it and embarrass him. )
She couldn’t help but let her wicked feelings show on her face.
Abel’s eyes were already so clouded he couldn’t differenciate such black-hearted smile from a sweet one. Poor guy.
But Mia’s plan was bound to fail.
She had forgotten.
Sion Saul Sunkland.
He is a prince perfect in every way.
Unlike Mia, who was perfect only in her dancing skills, Sion was a boy who could do everything.
Of course, that includes dancing…
And so, the legendary night reaches its climax.
