Reincarnated Princess Wishes To Avoid Death - Chapter 90
Mia Gets Scolded
For a while after finishing the whole ordeal with Viscount Berman case, Mia was just lolling around. Mia was released from public duties due to the emperor’s consideration. According to the emperor, she worked hard during her school days and now that it is school vacation, she should spend it relaxing. So, Mia was currently on full vacation mode.
She is currently sprawled on the bed, doing nothing in particular. What’s more, she’s not even wearing a dress, just her underwear! She was thinking along the lines that since it is her room, she should be able to do what she wants. The highly respected Wisdom of the Empire could not be found anywhere here. Because what lies here is an idle princess determined to reach the pinnacle of laziness.
“… By the way, I haven’t received a letter from Prince Abel lately.”
Mia let out a sad sigh.
In fact, this was one of the reasons why Mia wasn’t motivated. She had been exchanging letters with Abel every ten days, but recently she hasn’t been able to receive any.
By the way, the distance between the Tearmoon Empire and the Kingdom of Remno is about five days on a carriage. Considering a round trip would take ten days, then a correspondence every ten days means a very frequent communication by this world’s standards. With the occasional help of Anne’s sister, Elise, Mia had already written more letters than she had ever written in her previous life. That is three letters… three letters written. This says a lot about how bad of a writer Mia was in the previous timeline.
Mia’s hopeless career as a writer aside, it is true that Abel’s reply was really late. The last letter Mia sent was fifteen days ago. The summer vacation is nearing its end. Although they will meet at school soon, Mia is still feeling a little lonely. This was, however, not an excuse to be lounging in bed all day!
“Mia-sama, a letter…”
Anne said as she entered Mia’s bedroom. Mia literally jumped up with delight.
“Well, it’s finally here. I was worried if something happened… what if there was a landslide and the roads were blocked… It might have caused the delay. But, oh well, it is here now… I suppose I can forgive the delay.”
“Ah, Mia-sama, that’s … not actually a letter from Prince Abel.”
Feeling a little sorry, Anne gave Mia an apologetic smile.
“Actually, it’s a letter from the daughter of Count Rudolvon.”
Mia, who was leaning forward on the bed, slowly and silently slid back on the bed.
“Oh, ok. Tiona, right?”
And just like that, all her excitement was gone. She sighed.
“Alright. Open it and read it for me.”
She said in an unmotivated tone. Needless to say, Tiona Rudolvon was one of her main enemies on the previous timeline. While she does not want to take revenge, she also does not want to be corresponding with her. If this was from Chloe, she would be a bit happier.
However, the wheat stored by Outcount Rudolvon is appealing.
Therefore, she could not dare to ignore his daughter. Reluctantly, Mia prepared herself to listen to the letter… but!
Mia was a little surprised by Anne’s unexpectedly sharp voice.
“What is it, Anne? And what’s with the scary face…”
“I know you’re lonely without a letter from Prince Abel, but what will Prince Abel think when he sees you like this?”
“Even if you say that, I’m in my room. He won’t see me.”
Anne flatly scolds Mia, who was starting to make excuses…
“You don’t know who is watching, Mia-sama. The servants’ mouths are blabbermouth.”
So, Mia remembers. On the previous timeline… The servants around her kept blaming her with different things. Some of them were things she did not do. Anything she did wrong in private, it became known to the wider circle. It did not take her long to realize that the servants were indeed blabbermouth. And if one of them were to tattle to Prince Abel’s messenger about her current appearance… The mere thought made her blush with shame.
“Oh, Anne… Anne… huhuhuhu”
Mia whimpered as she stretched out her hands to Anne looking for comfort. Anne held her and gave her a reassuring nod.
“It’s okay, Mia-sama. I try to take care of you on my own. That way, nobody else can enter your room and no one else can see the state of it. I will only let them in when you and your room are clean and tidy. But remember, you can never know who might be watching.”
“Okay… huhuhuh… I’ll put my act together.”
Listening to Anne’s scolding, Mia resolved herself to always conduct herself appropriately. That way, she won’t be embarrassed to be seen by Prince Abel, or whoever else might see her. Mia was a simple girl, and she was honest. And Anne felt a small rush of pride in seeing her straightforward attitude.
“I’m sorry Mia-sama, if I went too far.”
“No, no. You’re always helping me, Anne.”
Originally, such servants who scold their masters could be punished. However, Anne was happy that Mia was still the virtuous Princess she respected, no matter how lazy she may behave.
Now Mia was dressed properly and was seated, ready to read Tiona’s letter.
“Hmm, Tiona’s younger brother …”
From reading the letter, a memory from the past came to the surface.
