Chapter 2: Jannice NetherholdsBookmark here

If the famous masochistic type person truly exists, I’m sure they are very much thrilled to replace me right now.
The disappointment look on Father’s face will truly be a huge turn-on for them.Bookmark here

However, as I’m not one of them, I feel a sense of guilt weighs down on me every time that look appears on his handsome face.Bookmark here

“Y-You! How many times this kind of thing had happened?” He scolds me.Bookmark here

I look down at the floor without saying anything. I know I am the one who is wrong and I know Father will not be calmed if I just apologize, so I keep quiet. I will wait once Father is calming down before I apologized.Bookmark here

“It was only last week that you broke your mother’s favorite vase and now you destroy all of your pillows. Just how did you even do that? You can just break the vase by throwing it but how can you break that many pillows by throwing them? You are just a child. You can’t destroy them relying on only strength. Also, what is that loud sound from your room?”Bookmark here

I feel anxious when I hear Father’s words. No…… he cannot know the truth.Bookmark here

“Jannice, do you hide something from me?”Bookmark here

I bite my bottom lip, refusing to speak.Bookmark here

“Jannice……”Bookmark here

“Dear…....” A bell-like voice comes from the door.Bookmark here

Father looks up to see the source of the voice and calms down.Bookmark here

I heave a quiet sigh. I do not look up but I can hear my savior’s footsteps walking from the door into the room.Bookmark here

“Jannice……” That bell-like voice is calling my name and it has some attraction to force my head to look up.Bookmark here

What greets my eyes is a beautiful person who owns a pair of green eyes with blonde hair and a translucent skin without any flaws. She has this out-of-the-world aura so even if someone accused her being an angel in disguise, I would believe it.Bookmark here

This beautiful woman is my mother.Bookmark here

“My daughter, just what did you do this time?” She asks while holding my hands.Bookmark here

Looking up into her eyes makes me feel guilty, so I look away. I stay quiet for a while, but she is patient.Bookmark here

She does not force me to say anything and only caress the back of my hands slowly. However, it can only make me feel more guilty that in the end, I can only mumble in a very soft voice.Bookmark here

“I’m… sorry.”Bookmark here

“Em?”Bookmark here

Ah…… My eyes feel wet, and I feel my nose is running.Bookmark here

“I’m sorry.”Bookmark here

This time I say it a bit loud.Bookmark here

“What are you saying sorry for?”Bookmark here

“I’m sorry for destroying the pillows.”Bookmark here

“How do you destroy it?”Bookmark here

“That…” I hesitate.Bookmark here

“Jannice.” Once again, her voice makes me look up and stares into her eyes.Bookmark here

“I’m sorry! I won’t do it again.”Bookmark here

My tears fall into my cheeks. Ah…… I cry.Bookmark here

“Come here……” Mother pulls my body into a hug and pats my head. “There, there~.”Bookmark here

After a while, I stop crying. I pull myself back from my mother’s hug and let her clean my face which I’m sure in a very horrible state. She cleans my nose and tears with a tissue.Bookmark here

“Will you promise that you will never do it again?” Mother asks.Bookmark here

I nod. “I promise.”Bookmark here

“Come here.” She squeezes my body in her embrace before letting me and pushing me to my father.Bookmark here

I hesitate at first but I gather my courage and grab the hem of his suit. He looks down at me before looking away.Bookmark here

I am startled at his reaction and my eyes begin to tear up once again.Bookmark here

“Father……” I call him but he ignores me.Bookmark here

I tug his suit to get his attention and he finally looks at me.Bookmark here

“I’m sorry.” My hand tightens around his suit. My tears are threatening to fall again but I hold it and starts to hiccup instead.Bookmark here

“I am sorry, Father.” I look up at him and see his composure is starting to fall.Bookmark here

“Uh……”Bookmark here

“Dear.”Bookmark here

“Father, you don’t want to forgive me?” Ah…… it falls again.Bookmark here

“Uh…… my baby Jannice~” Father crouches down to the floor. “I forgive you. Father is sorry too for scolding you. Will my dear daughter forgives me?” Bookmark here

I stop crying but still hiccuping then I nod my head. Immediately, a bright smile starts to appear on his face. Afterward, he squeezes my tiny body and showers me with kisses on my cheek.Bookmark here

I have to stay for a while and endure it before I am pardoned to excuse myself.Bookmark here

I walk out my way from the study room to my room.Bookmark here

Flipping my hair, I give myself a brief smile.Bookmark here

And that’s how, folks, a way to escape yourself from getting scolded too much.Bookmark here

End of show.Bookmark here

I chuckle. Father is no good. I just know his anger won’t stay too long. After all, I’m her lovely beloved daughter. It won’t do if he keeps scolding me. He will risk himself a possibility of getting hated by me.Bookmark here

Ah! I just remember that I haven’t introduced myself. That is rude of me.Bookmark here

Forgive me.Bookmark here

My name is Jannice Netherholds, the princess of Netherholds House. This year, I reach the age of six-years-old but because of the secret I’m trying to protect from even my parents, my mental is not that of six-years-old. Bookmark here

Huh? Do you want to know what kind of secret it is?Bookmark here

Of course, you can, if you click on the next chapter.Bookmark here

That is if you have enough ability to do it though.Bookmark here
