Villainess Is Changing Her Role To A BroCon - Chapter 78
“To be honest, I’ve never seen a girl who was as unique and extraordinary as her. But even so, there is no way that Ekaterina would want to marry me against Alexei’s wishes. In fact, I think Alexei said that just as according to her intention… as expected, though, I don’t think she needs to hate me this much.” (Mikhail)
It was Emperor Constantine who reacted.
“Well, that’s alright. There is still time before you graduate.” (Emperor)
The heir to the throne of the empire would officially become the heir to the throne through a coronation ceremony after graduation from the academy. In many cases, the woman who is to be his consort would also participate in the crowning ceremony, and later be engaged and become the Crown Princess.
“Things change when they change. And so do the hearts of young people.” (Emperor)
‘I’m going to set up my own business association and do business. My dream is to have my own ship and sail around the world. Don’t bother with a big girl like me, get another pretty girl as a bride.’
The emperor and the empress both understand Ekaterina’s intention.
Mikhael inherited not only physical resemblance to his father, but also his father’s temperament. He has also inherited a trait of a keen hunter; patient and persistent. He has the tenacity to chase his target, and will never stop until he finally grasps it within his hands.
The royal couple clearly knew this, and was sure that as long as Mikhael wills it, he would most definitely take it upon himself to act on this matter.
Don’t stir things up. (Emperor)
I know, I know. It would only be counterproductive. (Empress)
Mikhael didn’t notice that such a conversation was exchanged between his parents’ gazes.
“Both of their Majesties are in a good mood. Thanks to you, Ekaterina.” (Alexei)
“I have nothing to do with this. It’s only due to my brother’s arrangement and everyone’s hard work in preparing for the Royal Family visit.” (Ekaterina)
After the emperor’s carriage left the main gate of the duke’s mansion, the two siblings exchanged such a conversation as Alexei’s escort knights followed them back inside the mansion.
Incidentally, the people who were waiting for the return of the royal family in front of the main gate were also admiring the Yurinova siblings, but neither of them noticed the cheers for them at all. They were siblings who were alike in a strange way, not really noticing the admiration for themselves.
“My lord, my lady, tea is ready. Please take a moment to rest.” (Graham)
“Yes, Graham, you’ve had your work cut out for you.” (Ekaterina)
“Everything went well, as you’ve done a wonderful job.” (Alexei)
After congratulating Graham, the butler, they entered a small common room near the main entrance. Ivan, the servant, and Mina, the maid, were both waiting there and proceeded to make tea for their respective masters.
“As my brother said, they were very friendly people. I had a really good time conversing with them.” (Ekaterina)
“You and the Empress seemed to have conversed at great length.” (Alexei)
“I have heard many interesting things about her. Her Majesty is a very nice person. Perhaps it’s because she’s so close in age to my mother that I feel quite close to her.” (Ekaterina)
“…I see.” (Alexei)
Alexei smiles softly.
“His Majesty the Emperor was also in a good mood when he was talking to you, wasn’t he?” (Ekaterina)
“Yes, he has always treated me well. When he was still the crown prince, he would often come to Mikhael’s place to impart everyone with his wisdom and gave pointers on swordplay.” (Alexei)
